    State of the Raiders



    There is some strange stuff going on with the Raiders. Never mind that they got punked by a division rival at home on opening day 27-0, how's this for jaw-dropping behavior?

    And you think we had problems with Grbac. Looks like a very long year for Oakland. You've gotta wonder what their mindset is going to be coming into our game.

    When Raiders wide receiver Randy Moss said of his team, "things are crazy around here," he wasn't kidding.

    The San Francisco Chronicle reported on its Web site that disgruntled receiver Jerry Porter who was inactive for the 27-0 drugging the Raiders absorbed from the San Diego Chargers on Monday night, was seen laughing and pumping his fist on the sidelines when Raiders teammate Aaron Brooks was sacked for the seventh time.

    That's pretty sad, kind of like Ravens fans cheering when Boller went down.

    Yep...sure looks like it. I feel bad for Lamont Jordan the ex-terp having to play on the squad. It double sucks because I have Moss on my fantasy team...thank god I won without him this week.

    the team is falling apart...Moss doesn't like the team anymore and is dangerously close to becoming a T.O., Porter is pissed about being benched, they can't find a decent TE. They're just becoming laughable.

    Why feel bad for Jordan??? The Jets were no better, so it was a latter move in some ways
    Waiting for the next one!!!

    they are a rather sad team. i hope our team can keep it together and slap them around next week. it would be nice to see our guys win a game they should in convincing fashion. if this is to be our year, they have to lay the smack down in games like this.

    Re: State of the Raiders

    We'll know early on in the 1st quarter how both teams respond to their opening game, but I expect nothing less than a fully focused Ravens team bent on the destruction of a weak sister.

    I can't see Porter starting after that display. That can only be good for us, one less WR to stretch the field. We can put CMac and Reed on Moss all game.

    They should take a page out of the Pats book and wise up and just trade Porter,wh cares about the cap hit just cut your losses.What is the point of paying a guy 5 mill to sit on the bench and cause problems like he is.

    If this report is true, that he was fist-pumping and cheering when Brooks was getting sacked for the seventh time, what team would trade for him? Who would actually give up anything for an asshole like that? If the Raiders cut him, some team will probably pick him up, but only because it won't cost them anything, but he just killed his trade value with this display (assuming it really happened).

    As far as the Raiders go, they are a disaster, even worse than I thought they would be. It might be a long time before Al Davis makes another rare appearance in broad daylight.

    Re: State of the Raiders

    This is a team that we should handle easily. They shouldn't score more than 10 points on us. But I can't get out of my mind the Rick Mirer debacle in Oakland a couple of years ago. That was probably the last time I was this confident going into a game and we know how that turned out. I like everything that our guys are saying, and Oakland does seem about 2 more losses away from imploding, but I need to see that intensity from us. We have 2 things going for us in that regard.

    1. Home Opener- we rarely play flat at home and since its our first game I anticiapte 100% committment by our guys.
    2. Cleveland- we play our divisions' cup cake week 3. They have been known to give us fits, but its not like we are looking ahead to the Pittsburgh rivalry.

    I agree totally. Here we have the Raiders with a short week....they have to come across the country....we need to take advantage of those things as well as the team in disarray as it appears....
