Check it out...
Some big surprises maybe?
Thanks for the response bro. I know times hav been tuff 4 us as Raider fans since 2002. Hopefully they can turn this thing around for not only u, but the rest of our fellow Raider brothers & sisters that are tired of being optimistic season after season. I know u aint the only 1 feeln' like that out there in the "Nation." The Lance/Lame Kiffin era wuz really a waste of time & 2 bad Al didnt get rid of him sooner & it wudv been nice 2 c Norv get a real chance while he wuz here.
Keep that Raider Faith...or try 2 - ahaha
peace out, 2 fingers -< >-
Hey Morgan gotta pump ur brakes a lil bro…………appreciate u being as u said “REALISTIC” & since ur a fan u 2 can understand that “we” as Raider fans gots no other choice cuz times have been so bad round here since after 2002. There is definitely light @ the end of the tunnel here & wat better way than 2 remain optimistic & really appreciate our division. Every teams goal is 2 win the championship, & it starts by getn in the playoffs, then takin’ sum chances.
1. Cant really blame Gallery 2 much here cuz this guy has never had any stability since he arrived & he was way over-coached. O-linemen r sent in there ways & jus cuz he had Hall of Famers coaching him, that doesn’t automatically make him an All Pro. Then playing LT, RT & now guard, kinda makes it difficult 4 anybody 2 really learn the job, apply the teachings & execute on game day. Cant really agree w/u on him “determining his own fate” here cuz the organization didn’t assist in his maturation process when we picked him @ #2, & he shudv been brought along slowly or wen we saw him strugglin’ pull him & put sum1 else in.
2. I agree w/u 1000% bout wat we shud do on “D” cuz im tired of c-ing teams run up & down on us!!! We draft Curry, Raji, Orakpo or Brown @ 7 or go LB @ pik 40. Kelly will b SAVAGE if he can have a partner in crime next 2 him that can do their job & take sum of the double/triple team off him. I like Warren & we must re-sign Joseph, then cut Sands, but unfortunately hes still there so hopefully new D-line coach Dwayne Board can light a fire under these guys.
3. Don’t 4get that Uncle Al did bring in Gilbride the NY Giants OC in here 2 interview for the HC job & b-4 that, they spoke quite awhile on the phone. Im thinkn’ Al wuz pikn’ his brain on how 2 make the 3 running bak monster work in Oaktown like in NY. + Im thinkn’ mad man Cable is gonna b like a kid in the candy store w/a full season of playn’ w/his new toys along w/his type of linemen opening up holes 4 these baks, + new O-line coach from CAL Michalczik. BTW don’t 4get that both Fargas & D-Mac were injured part of the season, & Bush wuz pretty much a rookie this season, then finally broke out wen he got his reps.
Now im not sayn we r goin 2 win the Super Bowl this year, but we r startin’ 2 c the clouds disappear (?optimism?) especially since Lance/Lame aint here no more. Like Uncle has said in the past………”The greatness of the Raiders is in its future……….”
Keep that Raider faith…………..
