THIS WAS A GOOD READ, THE MEMO

i know that the link below is off another blog site, but please forgive me, it came off the raidernew.com site.  give it a read because alot of it made sense.  after the light bulb went on in my head things became clearer.  if you look at the attitude of nfl players, not just with the raiders but with the whole league, you can see the me first and i got my money attitude perpetuating the nfl.  players showing up late to meetings,taking plays off during games, and not caring.  why, because they got their 15 million to 30 million guaranteed money, so why should the care.  players like that feel its their right to be in the nfl, that they belong there, instead of it being a privledge.  perfect example....plaxico burgess.  i'm sure there are alot more example just like him over the last three to five years.  

i like what cable has done with the re-signings, the draft, and the udfa's.  i don't how much was him convincing al this is the way to go or how much of it was mutal or if it was all al.  i don't care.   i truely believe that you put a bunch of guys that have athleticism who will play for each other, who will play for the team, the coach, the organization, the raider nation will find a way to win and never give up.

enjoy the read:
