Raiders are ranked at 12 in ESPN.com, 15 at S.I. and at 17 at Fox Sports.
Oakland is looking good, not only to us, the ones who keep the flames burning and buy the jerseys and teeshirts but to the sports writers who finally woke up and took notice of something other than Brett Favre's #4" pecker or the drama that has befallen the angel McNabb at the hands of Ratman in DC. The Greek Tragedy of Jerry Jones' Team America sucking and the woe is us bullshit they have become. As for me, I am so tired of being on the backburner of highlight films and the obligatory one second score announcement while we stare endlessly at Troy Palomalu's hair on Fox and listen to Bradshaw act like he really cant spell 'cat' or to the excuses or jabs made for every other QB in the league by Joe 'choked against Oakland' Theisman and whatever asshat is in the booth.
Good to kick ass & take names again, Raider brothers & sisters.
