i'm glad they lost.. but in reality they deserved to win that game.. they were playing straight up smashmouth in the 1st half.. looked good on D.. and pretty much outplayed SD until the end.. i was pretty shocked
but am i surprised they found a way to lose? not at all lol
C'mon luv -- show some Bay Area teams a little more love than that. The TD catch that was not called a TD catch -- by the rule -- it wasn't a catch. Would the refs have given that catch to the opposing team (da Bolts)? Of course they would have.
But this is the Raiders. And they're not going to get these breaks until they demonstrate that they can win on a consistent basis.
JaMarcus had a TERRIBLE game last night -- but I'm not throwing in the towel on this kid. The comparisons to Alex Smith are way off base. JaMarcus CAN hit the broad side of a barn. Alex can't.
Sure -- he missed a lot of his throws last night. But I'm going to say those were opening game jitters. Dude was amped. This is his year. He knows it all too well. He either produces -- or Big Al backs over his carcas with the Madden Cruiser.
The Raiders look like they can be a good team. How many of you really want to see another year of losing, crappy football on both sides of the Bay? Really?
Can't go there. I'm like Mike. I want winners. I want winners on both sides of the Bay. In a head-to-head matchup I'll always root for my Niners -- but I like to see the Silver and Black kick a$$ every once in awhile.
