Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders overcame entirely too much on Sunday to not leave Invesco Field with a win. Oakland, a 10-point underdog, quieted the Denver home crowd, came back from a 14-point deficit and stretched the game to an extra quarter. The Raiders even found a way to get the ball back after losing the overtime coin toss. In the end, though, it...

I can see this is going to be another long season. Leave to the drunk Seabass to screw things up...AGAIN! Not only him: Kiffin (for letting McCown play and not pulling his sorry A$$), McCown for being a loser, the entire secondary for pathetic play (especially Stu). Why would you start McCown? He's not and never will be a pro bowl caliber QB, not even a good QB. McCown is what he is. He'll have one to 2 good games a season and the rest he will be his typical self. Lane needs to wake up and realize that. Seabass, for crying outloud, make a freaking FG when it counts. Time to start looking for another kicker, a replacement for Stu and bench McCown. In Lane, I'm losing trust. Just lose baby! I bet the Browns go to work on our secondary. Any takers? What happened to our secondary compared to last year? Is it because no one passed on us because they were running on us.

This is a re-post from earlier: Its too early to talk about Kiffin's success or failure, but I think its important to note the kid's stubborness. He continues to insist on starting a QB that just does enough to get by, but not push the offense over the hump. It is the offense that has been problematic of not giving the defense enough time to rest. I don't care if we had the 2000 Ravens defense, if the offense gives them nothing, they will tire out. Kiffin also continues to put the game in SHANKowski's foot. We were not in a good field position given his track record and with Elam on the other side. Hopefully it's another lesson learned for Kid Kiffin. I don't know if it is a good thing or not that he doesn't care about division rivalries, the jury is still out on that. The defense's problems have been exposed with Fabian Washington, the smurf needs to learn how to tackle. If the dimunitive Bob Sanders can do it, he should be able to do that too. Stu Schweigert has proven to be too slow with his read and react. I'm getting irritated with his tackling abilities as well. ------------------------------------ I thought Cleveland looked like a possible easy win, not anymore. If McCown starts next week with his 8/16 74yd 1td 3 int performance, it will be time to seriously question Kiffin's judgment.

I'd like to add that it was very gutsy to make the call for the onside kick, but if you're not going to move the bal, there's no point in making the attempt. Start Culpepper next week.
