Our playoff hopes all depend on our next three games and chiefs and chargers losing. while it is difficult for that to happen, IT CAN HAPPEN.
I edited one of my earlier post about a inspirational speech from independance day movie. This is what I think is needed for the fans and players to both understand about this team. I know times are rough, but if you really pay attention to the words it revives your hopes. I just wished I was in the locker room to give this speech or one of the captains from the team to say it before the game. Here it is, enjoy. let me know what you think!
- IN LESS THAN AN HOUR, WE WILL BE JOINED ON THE FIELD BY AN OPPONENT LOOKING FOR A BATTLE.
AN YOU WILL BE LAUNCHING THE GREATEST BATTLE THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF OUR TEAM.
THAT WORD SHOULD HAVE A NEW MEANING FOR ALL OF US TODAY. WE CANT BE CONSUMED BY OUR PETTY DIFFERENCES ANYMORE.
WE WILL BE UNITED ON THIS DAY FOR A COMMON INTEREST.
PERHAPS ITS FAITH THAT TODAY BE THE DAY THAT WE WIN AND SHOW THE WORLD WHY WE ARE THE BEST.
AND YOU ONCE AGAIN WILL BE FIGHTING FOR OUR TEAM. NOT BECAUSE OF SCRUTINY, HATERS, OR HUMILIATION BUT FOR OUR FANS, THE RAIDER NATION.
WE ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHT TO LIVE. TO EXIST.AND WHEN WE WIN TODAY, THE OAKLAND RAIDERS WILL NO LONGER BE KNOWN AS A FOOTBALL JOKE,
BUT AS THE DAY THE RAIDERS DECLARED IN ONE VOICE WE WILL NO GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT, WE WILL NOT LOSE WITHOUT A FIGHT.
