Even Raiders Week Sucks Now



There is no bigger testament to how far the Raiders have fallen than the fact that the team is coming to town and nobody cares. Even local knives salesmen have not seen their normal sales spike that typically accompanies a Raiders visit to the Murph. Even the notoriously myopic Raiders fans have started to come to the conclusion that the Raiders are horrible. Begrudgingly, of course. There were still some holdouts, like Japanese soldiers living in seclusion 40 years following World War II. But those exceptions are now rare. Yes, even the most ardent of Raiders fan now recognizes that their team is about as relevant to the NFL as the Arizona Cardinals. Congratulations on that.

It sucks THN is a huge Chargers/Angels/CSF fan.

But then again, there is fair weather out lately, right?

It is a little windy. But yeah, I just jumped on that huge CSF basketball bandwagon.

The only thing uncertain about the Raiders is which QB's life they are going ruin next April. Troy Smith's or Brady Quinn's?

Chargerfan is lucky I'm not doing the Post Mortem.

Classic NFL coverage - flashing the stat that Vincent Jackson just executed his first pass for an incompletion . . .
