Praise God! The Oakland Raiders have arrived.

Thanks to John Marshall and the entire Oakland Raiders defense for a gutsy performance against the highly acclaimed Philadelphia Eagle offense.

Thank you JaMarcus, for making good decisions with the football and using your fullback out of the backfield.

The noticeable difference in today's game was the attitude, and effort put forth by the entire football team. The Raider defense played as if they had read the thousands of articles about their lack of heart and desire to compete.

While the Raider defense played an outstanding game, the noticeable difference was the shift from typical man-to-man coverage to various zone defenses.

Our ability to create constant pressure on the quarterback and avoid one-on-one match-ups between wide receivers and linebackers worked brilliantly. Lets hope that we can continue the momentum.

Justin Fargas ran hard behind an over-performing makeshift offensive line and found daylight more often than not. Tom Cable called a brilliant game and breathed life into the floundering Raider Nation.

Zach Miller played extremely well, and continued his campaign to play in his first Pro Bowl.

Drops continue to be the nemesis of the struggling offense, but the return of Chaz Schillens should provide a much-needed shot of adrenaline into a struggling receiving corps.

Richard Seymour, Trevor Scott, Stanford Routt, and Thomas Howard had outstanding games.

Special thanks to an Oakland Raiders football team and coaching staff that played signature Raider Football for the first time in several years.
