Everyone knows how this game is supposed to end up, BUT, if the games always followed suit, there would be no need to play them.
So, now is the time for the Raiders to Answer the Bell, much as , according to Charlie Frye, JaMarcus Russell did at 6:30AM this past Wednesday. Heck, the 60 million dollar man probably woke up earlier than me that day!! (Cue Gomer Pyle, "Surprise, Surprise!!!".)
It would not "Surprise" me at all to think that this is Tom Cable's last hurrah, if he doesn't get a win this week. 2-6 going into the break, with a last place scoring offense that you call the plays for and an owner with a quick fuse, well, you get the picture. If this team loves Cable as much as they say they do, they'd better leave it ALL on the field.
Here is to hoping that, once again, this team does the unthinkable and beats a team that nobody picked them too.
So, raise a glass of whatever you are drinking, and, toast with me:
"Here is to the Good Times And Bad,
The happy times and sad,
And here is to Every Sunday,
Where the GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK!!!"
