I would be lying if I said the way the rest of the season played out didn’t throw a bit of a wrench into the outcome of this piece, forcing me to redo a good portion of the article.

Howdy folks! I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great start.

If ever there was a good time to break out the Vegas Raider/JFB tale of the power of Killian’s Irish Red Ale during Donkey Beat-down in Denver Week, this seems to be it. I present what I believe to be the 6th annual edition (72% chance that is correct) of the Vegas Raider/JFB wise tale:
Throughout the regular season the Raiders have demonstrated a moxie which has embraced the “Will to Win.” Week in and week out this team has found ways to win as Mack and the team chant their mantra: BY ANY MEANS. This has proven time and time again to be the belief in the locker room.
Joy to the world fellow Pillagers!
