To be honest, Raiders Weak took a huge hit once the Raiders started to roll over and piddle on themselves. You know when knife sales started falling in San Diego, the rivalry was no longer what it was.
Now, you have a pair of pathetic teams going through the motions. Though, as said yesterday, that might not be fair to the Raiders who are actually trying, but are incompetent.
Hopefully A.J. Smith is still content with his hiring of former Raiders coach Norv Turner, who has led the Charger to the Raiders-like depths of the AFC West. You can knock Marty Schottenheimer for a number of things, but his teams relished playing and beating the Raiders. Do you get that sense now?
Chargers fans will get a great opportunity to see how the team feels about the coach. Because if they lose to the Raiders, that would be very telling. Now some fans, like ESPN's Sports Dork Bill Simpson, might advocate the Chargers losing to the Raiders so Norv would get fired.
Don't be that guy.
Especially since there is no way the Raiders could become the first 6-10 team to win a division. Hope that the Chargers win the game, and management has enough common sense to make a coaching change.
