I know this is not a math problem, but Raider Nation, indeed we have a problem.

The Oakalnd Raiders have not constructed an algorithm for consistent success. At least, not yet.

Here is a definition of the term, algorithm:

A step-by-step problem-solving procedure, especially an established, recursive computational procedure for solving a problem in a finite number of steps.

It seems the Oakland Raiders are still searching for the right combination of plays and strategies to secure more victories. The Raiders are still searching for the right structure and process that will guarantee more success.

Most fans say or write that the Oakland Raiders have been oscillating, diverging, or just simply struggling for about six years.

It just seems like the system has not been working properly. Nevertheless, there are many of us who continue to be optimistic.

We have got to put our heads together and solve this problem. Enough is enough.

We can't just keep filling our historical journal with zig-zag, yo-yo, and flip-flop events or games of losing and barely winning on the football field.

It's clear that the team is talented. The problem seems to be that they are not in "sync."

Are they tuned it to each other? Do they have the same vibes? Where is the synergy?

There is a need for more rigorous preparation and practice.

Win the game. Beat the Texans.

Once more, figure out the step by step procedure for getting the Oakland Raiders back on track, converging toward more victories, championships, and even Super Bowls.
