Lane Kiffin finally knows what it is like to truly be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders. And somebody had better get him the phone number for the West Virginia AD. Stat.
Warren Sapp went ballistic during the Raiders embarrassing loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, drawing three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties culminating in his ejection. The Raiders once prided themselves on being the most penalized team in the league. But that was when the Raiders were getting flagged for late hits and roughing the passer, penalties that served a purpose.
Sapp's meltdown illustrated the new Raiders philosophy, where they display just how stupid they are. Not that it mattered, much. The Raiders were already down 28-3 at the time, and failed on fourth-and-4 from the Jaguars 20-yard line on the previous drive. Sapp obviously wanted to get the hell out of the stadium and probably was at the club long before JaMarcus Russell tossed his third interception of the game.
That's right JaMarcus, turns out that training camp was kind of important. Don't worry though, the Raiders will have a high draft pick to spend to give you some help this year. Maybe even an offensive lineman. Like Robert Gallery.
BTW, is anybody at work today or at the computer? The biggest question being, did anybody bother to watch NFL games yesterday?
