The NFL is now entering it’s final stretch of the regular season. December football is upon us and yet the Autumn Wind is still storming the country. The Raiders’ 9-2 record currently slots them in as the second seed in the AFC. They hold a one game lead over Kansas City, who already have a victory over the Raiders in Oakland.
In 1991 the league’s first African-American head coach would lead a silver laden team of football giants to the AFC Championship game. Despite this incredible social accomplishment, the team would go on to be decimated by Jim Kelley and the Buffalo Bills.
Derek Carr is easily A better human being, than he is a QB, and we all know, he’s a damn good Signal Caller.
I would be lying if I said I haven’t been waiting several long years for this opportunity. I pride myself on finding topics other beat writers and fan sites don’t seem to gravitate towards. I truly hate going with the cliché topics as I personally feel it’s rather counterproductive to what a creative writer (if that’s what some may consider me) intends to accomplish.
Welcome to TRF’s Week 13 Edition of Playoff Pontificator. For this go around we will look at all six possible outcomes for the Oakland Raiders, ranging from 9-7 to 14-2.
I became a fan late in the 2008 season after my dad purchased a cable TV service that included ESPN America (known back then as NASN). It was at that time that I was first exposed to college football and fell in love with the sport immediately. But although college football was fun, it was nothing compared to the big boys. So in search of my team, I did what every boy does… ask dad.
Come aboard the Pillaging Podcast as we break down last week’s game against Carolina, look forward to the Bills, and discuss the what rest of the season has in store for the AFC West.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now let’s get back to work and Back In Black…
I was sent this article a little over a week ago. I think this is a good time to post it. It reminded me of the fact (not that I forgot) that everyone is here with a unique story. The one thing that unites us all is our love for our team. We come from different walks of life but this, this is something we all share. Be thankful for your friends and family. Be thankful our team is back to greatness. Be thankful for your brothers and sisters that make up this family we call the Raider Nation.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone,
Join us on this week’s episode of The Pillaging Podcast while we sip rum and wax poetic on the Silver and Black.
