Hey guys, I have been out-of-country for a few days and got back today and watched the tape of the 1st pre-season game against the Cowboys.
One thing I noticed which I do not think has been mentioned here is the respect Rob Ryan showed for Al Davis. In the first half, there was a shot of Ryan holding the Cowboys defensive play sheet over his mouth while he was calling plays. What has not been noticed was that in the top left hand corner of the Cowboys play sheet is that the Raiders shield with "AL" as per the back of the Raiders helmets is there.
A great and nice touch by Rob Ryan. Love him or hate him for what he did while he was here, he always spoke fondly of his time here, respected Mr. Davis, and never had a bad word to say about the organisation. His "touch" with the Al shield on the play sheet makes me respect the man no matter what team he is working for.
