Oakland Raiders: 2011 Season Could Be Short for More Than One Reason

What's going on in the NFL and in general?
What's going on in the NFL and in general?

There are so many towns, states and countries, yet the man who keeps predicting Judgement Day lives in or near Oakland, California. With the NFL lockout continuing and with the predictions being made by Harold Camping, it seems like time is running out for the Oakland Raiders to reclaim their greatness.

Some folks could be like Marvin Gaye and ask, "What's going on?" Others are joking and jabbing, thinking that the man (Harold Camping) is wrong and there is plenty of time to get certain things done.

Here are a few reasons to consider that timing is important:

1. Al Davis is a senior owner, and certain goals need to be met quickly to please this great man.

2. The lockout continues, charities are being shaken and financial problems are mounting up on certain players. Time is of essence.

3. If Camping is right and if the lockout continues, then we will not see the Oakland Raiders go to the playoffs or reach a fourth Super Bowl victory.

4. If Camping is correct and he is located near Oakland, then those who will be left behind and who are members of the Black Hole will be able to play smashmouth football and the number of penalties against the "left behind" Black Hole members and Oakland Raiders will be gigantic. Since the good guys will be gone, who cares about the penalties?

5. If the prediction is right, then here is the schedule we will be able to witness, and the Oakland Raiders must win each and every game before October 21, 2011.

Raiders 2011 Regular Season Schedule
Monday, September 127:15 pmat Denver BroncosESPN
Sunday, September 1810:00 amat Buffalo BillsCBS
Sunday, September 251:05 pmNew York JetsCBS
Sunday, October 21:15 pmNew England PatriotsCBS
Sunday, October 910:00 amat Houston TexansCBS
Sunday, October 161:05 pmCleveland BrownsCBS

Since these predictions have alerted so many people, let's just consider this an opportunity to be highly motivated to start a winning streak. In other words, if time is running out, then at least let it run out with the Oakland Raiders winning, winning, winning.
