IT'S A START!

FULL disclosure: I didn't actually get to watch this last RAIDERS game. That said:

VICTORY! 

Yes, it was just the Jags who at this point are equally as bad with or withoutMJD; but that (for this week and in this case) is beside the point. Last year through penalties, or (early in the year) undisciplined play on Defense, or a lack of cohesion when things got tough, we would have found a way to lose this game. But as I keep saying: Mentally we're pointed in the right direction. 

Today we stand as an 18 point per game team, that leads the NFL in rushing. Who besides me would have given the RAIDERS a chance to be that this early on? I'll tell you who: The RAIDERS organization, the RAIDERS coaching staff, the RAIDERS players, and the RAIDERS Fans.

It's just 1-1 but then, we've only played two games haven't we?

  • I won't go quite that far yet! LOL! I think it'll be a more competitive game than most might though especially if we can reach Manning early.
  • With the season ending injury to Bronco's LT Ryan Clady, the odds of us getting to Manning just went UP. The guy they have in that slot has all of SIX NFL starts on his resume and he'll be matched up against: Lamarr Houston. On top of that the guy they signed to be his safety net: Winston Justice.

    Anyone expecting the Donkeys to run away with this one,CLEARLY doesn't understand how this game works.

  • I hope so too. In another week I'd ask for some of the EAGLES offensive mojo for the RAIDERS, but I think we in Philly are going to need all of it here this week.
