"You can't Appoint, Hire, or Declare Leadership" ~ Sonny Barger
"Al Davis thought all owners were dilettantes with a new toy. He said to me many times through the years that owners are often the problem with their franchises, that too many of them think they can run things when they cannot, and the teams that succeed are the ones where the owner hires the best people he can and turns the game over to them."
'In football, I root for the Oakland Raiders because they hire castoffs, outlaws, malcontents, and f*ck -ups, they have lots of penalties, fights, and paybacks, and because Al Davis told the rest of the pig NFL owners to go get f*cked... Someday, the Raiders will be strong again, and they will dip the ball in **** and shove it down the throats of the wholesome, white, heartland teams that pray together and don't deliver late hits’ – George Carlin
Well, on the bright side we aren't the Chiefs.
C'mon guys, who actually thought that the Raiders were going to be good this year? Raise your hand if you did. IMO, the Raiders had far too many areas that needed addressing and a very, very young and inexperienced front office. My guess is that 2014 will be the first realistic chance that they have at being competitive. Until then, it's going to be rough.
This team has turned me into a boarderline alcoholic..
sometimes i wonder if some of you azzholez remember the JaWalrus days...at least the game was winnable + at least we score some f*Cking pts!!!
have patience, indeed. Rome wasn't built in a day.
Uncle Al's final decade was a debacle in football terms. We now have reason to have hope.
Disagree wholeheartedly on the McFadden thing.
He is simply not a ZBS runner.
The line opens the the right zones and McFadden just tries to power throught the pile in front of him.
The power running game Hue was using fit McFaddens power running style so much better.
If we had Arian Foster, a great ZBS runner... it would be a different story.
I love McFadden... just hate him in this system.
