Good evening my fellow Raider fans. This is my first post but I have been reading S&BP for almost two years, and must say that you are the most educated group of football fans I've come across. I have loved everything Silver and Black since birth 1972 for that I thank my Father for raising me right as I'm doing with my son now. Anyway. Today being Raider Friday on 95.7 Tearney and Davis interviewed JC at 5:00. I sat in my truck listening to the whole thing sweating my A$$ off but did'nt want to miss a thing.
You could feel the emotion in Jason as he spoke of the bond he has with his teammates and his love for us the the true Nation Raider Nation. I can not quote him exactly so I will not try. He made mention of his wanting to be on the field with his teammates so he could help them continue the fight. Being a retired (med) Marine I know what he means by this. He wants to have the backs of his brothers as they take the field of battle as he knows they would do for him. This team has something special that we don't see to often in professional sports. This team plays for each other not for them selves. I give credit for this to our General Hue Jackson and men like Big Rich, and Jason. Its a great thing when teammates trust each other and look out for each other. Jason also went on to say how greatful he was for all of the support he has received from the Raider Nation and said that he would tell any new player coming to the Raiders that they now have a real fan base. Jason loves being a Raider and I know we pretty much traded for his replacement but I hope he can stay a Raider but I doubt it. If he stays as a backup that would be great if not I wish him luck and my support moving forward in his career. He was very professional handling tough questions never letting on any negativity towards Hue or the Raiders. Get well soon JC and thanks for getting this team on the road back to where it belongs. The Elite of the AFC.
