    Seriously. I put this on the coaching staff for not completely changing things up KNOWING that Gruden knew our offense so well. I believe to this day if we'd ran the ball 30 times we'd have won because we were bigger up front. Oh well. ****. I hate even thinking about that day. It took me two years before I could watch another football game.

    Rich is one of my favorite players because he demanded accountability from his offensive players. I saw some of that in Gradkowski last year and I hope Campbell can bring it, too.

    Without Robbins, I don't know if that applies. Anyway, it was a cluster****.

    Gannon always led by example, and tried his best. Davis and Herrara dissing him was one of the biggest disappointments of the off season.

    Could they get it ANY MORE WRONG?

    “It’s Rich that needs the help,” Herrera said. “When he goes on a radio show offering Mr. Davis help, Tom Cable help, the Raiders help, maybe it’s Rich that needs the help.”

    Good story bro. Airports are good places to spot and meet people. I met Al Davis at the oakland airport about 4 or 5 years ago. It was an interesting experience.
    There is only one thing I don't like about Colorado

    Uh... uh... where did this come from?!

    Talking about Gannon and the guy meeting him.

    More agenda oriented posting?

    But seeing as you have decided to “cast a stone”, I would like to point out to you that as wrong as Herrara was so was Gannon. Who, OBTW, started it all in the first place by taking to the airways with his discontent.

    I found it incredulous that Gannon would go onto a radio show to LAMENT the fact that they he was rejected in private. Love Gannon, but that particular move was amateur (being nice here).

    I also find it noteworthy with 32 teams out there that although Gannon talks a good coaching game he has yet to... you know... actually coach one.
