I don’t know what to say today. After the game it just didn’t sink in. The Raiders. It reminded me of comments I made last week and a few the weeks before… it kept coming back to me. A young team making young team mistakes, and after a great game versus the Jets and a late week response to your comments which most folks missed, I sit here saying the same thing.
Growing pains for young team now in a must win scenario. Humiliation is something that happens with a young team, and they either respond positively or negatively. I think we see a lot of positives. Yeah, I’m a homer and drink the local Kool-Aid AND keep a realistic view on things. I like what we have when we’re healthy…no excuses due to injury….it’s the NFL and the replacements have to be ready to play at a high level or be replaced.
AGAIN, I’ve said this before so bear with the old guy that repeats himself. With injuries and turnovers, a young team will look like this until they’ve played together enough to mature. Helter-skelter, ying-yang, it will all be confusing until they mature together.
I know… it was the Raiders… I’m in denial… I will be all week. HOPEFULLY this team is as upset as I am and it revives a rivalry as the Raiders kept pounding. I won’t repeat the score because it hurts.
