When the Raiders scored their TD with about two and a half minutes left to go, I just new the Bolts would go down there and score a TD on them and win the game. I feel for the Raiders team (not Al Davis), but I can't say that I feel sorry for their fans. On a side note, Seymour hit the deck running tonight. If they can sign him to a long contract, then he looks like he's going to be a great pickup for them.
I also knew that SD would come right down and score. It was like watching our defense under Nolan. They just sat back, behind the 1st down line and waited for the play to come to them. Often resulting in the player breaking past the line for a bigger gain than they wanted. Boom, boom, boom, and all of the sudden they weren't just trying for a tying FG, they were on the doorstep and ready to punch it in.
And I don't think there is any way of resigning Seymour, unless they throw such stupid money at him that there is noway he'll decline. Something comparable to what Zito got from the SF Giants. Once he gets a few more tastes of the futility of that franchise, he'll have one foot out the door by midseason.
