Hey folks, sorry for the delay on my reply but my interface to this blog has been having technical issues. I’ve replied a bunch of times and they never show up as responses??? So I posted this. I’ll try to get it fixed for next week. Hopefully this helps.
Wow!! Broncohowie you get the prize for the longest blog … this week … I know you feel better after that …b ecause I do. I love the passion you guys and gals bring to the blog.
Let’s face it, I’ve never seen a perfect game and never will. I really like what I saw out of the offense and moving the pocket with Jay Cutler the pitch options to the running back.
We’re making a lot of headway and like most of you said, if we stay ahead of the “Bolts” we have a shot at the playoffs and that would be a great experience for this team.
Can we win the Super Bowl? I don’t think this year with the Patriots playing on another planet and if you watched the Green Bay-Cowboys game (even without Brett Favre) they looked good and the Cowboys and the Colts are all playing at another level.
Hey, it’s “RAIDER WEEK.” The hair on the back of my neck still stands up when I think of the rivalry we had with those guys. Ted Hendricks, Howie Long, Lyle Alzado, Matt Millen, Lester Hayes, and the trash-talking and late hits. It was like going to a Halloween biker bar for a football game … fun stuff.
I have to tell you a funny story about RAIDERS week. We’re in Los Angeles – I forget the year, ’85 or ’86 – and we’re going into overtime. We’re on the sideline waiting to take the field and I forget who, but I think Paul Howard tells one of the rookies we get paid by the minute in overtime or something ridiculous and the rookie bites and is already thinking about what he can buy for Christmas.
So we end up beating them and it was a tough game and we forget about it until a day or two later when the rookie starts talking about all the stuff his wife bought with the overtime money he made and we all fell off our stools in the lockeroom rolling around on the floor laughing. You should have seen his face.
