Ted Nugent being interviewed by a British journalist.
The journalist asked, "What do you think the last thought is in the head of a deer before you shoot it? Is it, `Are you my friend?` or is it `Are you the one who killed my brother?'"
Nugent replied, "They aren't capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, 'What am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the French in that way."
POKE IN RICHMOND
I'm big supporter of Continuity ...
BUT if you are going to flush more then half your roster for the 3rd year in row ....
AND your HC looks lost on the sideline as his game management defies logic, I could see him gone before seasons end.
The Only thing that might be keeping him here is a handshake promise he got from Mark Davis when Reggie laid out his 4 year plan to turn around the organization.
- Get yer bets in Early boys ... the Odds will never again, be this high.
DA will stay, next year is do or die. We need some consistancy at HC.
Teams that win draft some or many impact players.
Teams that lose draft few or no impact players.
Teams that are historically bad draft players that either shouldn't be on or can't get on the field with other starting NFL players.
I think anyone that's being honest with themselves can see we're hovering around that third one right now. Hope it changes, either with better picks or players developing.
If you are talking about CWood's comments he was saying that with these young guys they think about home, it's inexperience. It's up to him as the veteran leader to get them pointed in the right direction. If they did in fact quit, which I'm not completely sold on, don't put it all on the coaches, players deserve just as much criticism.
As a Raider HC Dennis Allen gets an * -- he never had an NFL caliber roster to coach. Sparano is the next designated loser HC. Although Sparano > NFL worst ever HC Tom Cable FWIW.
Everything I post is my opinion.
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
I agree...I think he will be back, and maybe DA and Reggie deserve the 3rd year with some financial freedom.
I just hope DA stops using the term "compete'. Im just tired of hearing it, and I actually like DA.
we only got blown out twice all season, so that means for the other 11 games, we did just that and "competed". But what does that get you? NOTHING...it got us 4 wins, 2 of which were against the 2 worst teams in the league, and the other 2 wins were against teams under .500 who are going nowhere.
How about he substitutes the term "win" for "compete". Because we "competed", against Indy, NYG, NYJ, KC, TENN, etc so basically we accomplished the goal?
The goal should not be to compete, it should be to WIN and to kick the other teams ass. Maybe with him constantly saying compete compete compete, the players feel that as long as they hang around, then they listened to the coach.
I know Im going off here, but Im just sick of losing, like all of you...im just sick of it.
Woodson still good at telling the truth - Inside the Oakland Raiders - A look inside the world of the highly classified Oakland Raiders from the writers of Bay Area News Group
On what he wants out of the last three games: I want to win. At this point itís about winning. I donít care about how it looks or what the record is. Winning is winning to me and Iíd love to win the next three games.
On if heís surprised at the quality of defense being played at this point of the season: I was very surprised at today. I think weíre better than what we displayed out there today. But what we did today is what it is. I really canít explain why it just went as bad as it did today. One of those games you donít really have an answer for. Hey man, weíve got to take it on the chin _ again _ like we have a few other games. All we can do now is move forward and make sure we end on a positive note.
The secret of making sure the team doesnít finish poorly: Ainít no secrets. Itís all focus and working hard, which is what you need when youíve got a winning record. Youíve just got to focus in on your responsibilities and what youíre supposed to do. Thereís really no guard against guys thinking about the offseason and getting home and that sort of thing, but once you step on the field, youíve got to do your job, bottom line.
There you go, it's all about focus. Losing focus is not quitting on your team. Twist what he says all you want, but these are his words. He as a veteran leader should be in these guys' ear about changing their focus and attacking KC. Here's more!
Charles Woodson: Raiders are only
ďI see a team scratching the surface, man,Ē Woodson said. ďYour record is what it is, but Iím standing there and I think our record would be much better than it is. We have some very talented players. We have super coaches. We just havenít put it all together.Ē
This is from Nov. 1st, but he even said there that they just haven't put it all together. There are 11 different starters on their defense with one being from last years team, well 2 if you count Ross, but he wasn't even supposed to start this year. I think that they are talented on D but have holes to fill, especially at DE opposite Houston and awaiting the return of Branch, not to mention better depth.
