@Indy! Soooooooooooo agree with you. I think Al Davis held us together. And I always felt "it's HIS team". He can do what he wants with it. I am sick of injuries. If they are injured for more than a couple of games! CUT 'EM!! Some will come back better but most WON'T!

I'm disgusted. We don't look good on either side of the Ball. I think Palmer is doing a good job when he has time to throw. But it is demoralizing that our guys can't get through ANY offensive line to get to the QB. If you can't get sacks and hurries what do you have? And then I look at where our "cut" players go and they are doing great! Like Schillens! Just because they have a name doesn't mean they can play. It seems everyone that moves on from the Raiders has a great career. Maybe except "Awesome". He was brilliant on our team but isn't doing anything now. But we should havea kept Routt. These guys can't outrun anyone. I hate the zone. Everyone said when Al dies, when Al dies the curse will be lifted. Well, this team ain't getting any better. Before the season we had the BEST running back. But if he gets stopped twice they don't run anymore. I watched the dolphin game and noticed that yes, Bush had a good SECOND HALF but was stopped the whole first half. They kept pounding him and finally in the 2nd half he came barreling through all the time. You can't give up.
At least I won't have to hear "It's the Al Davis Curse" anymore. I still think we'll have a good team this year.

Raiders have never been good on special teams. NEVER!! Everyone can run through us and we rarely make it to the 20 but for the opposing, they seem to always make it to the 30. ONCE THEY SAW THE LONG SNAPPER WASN'T GOING TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT THEY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE CHANCE AND GONE FOR IT ON 4TH DOWN!!!! You don't have to be shot in the foot every time. LEARN SOMETHING!! But by the same token why could 'THEY' get through our line to Lechler so easily? (And that first block wasn't that a roughing the kicker?) That has to be addressed too. These injuries???? Get rid of them if they are injured. FORD is always injured. Get rid of him. Doesn't matter how good he is if he can't play 16 every year. Defense was good against the run But we couldn't get to Rivers!!! That's important! I think Palmer was pretty good too.
