"I ask a simple question: "Can the RAIDERS survive when the whole World is against them? Can they simply turn off all this negative sports media against them? Do they hear these outragious comments aimed at our Team? Do they I ask? And if so, can a RAIDER be adversely changed by these hiarchy's of the sports press and media-readers?
Now I say this; "If our Coaching Staff does not take these young players aside and tell them a thing or two about listening to "the noise" and ignoring it, it may get to our young players and it is also up to Carson and King Richard to lend a slight hand and to finese these young men to the finer points and harsh realities of the NFL game.

I don't care about Penalities anymore.. because that is what everyone seems to be discussing. The "Bully" must come to fruition and carry us on! There was a great scene played by Gregory Peck in a old Sci-Fi Movie once where he says: "Men, its time we put away the sliderules and think of a way out of this situation on our own! Well everyone on these boards have offered logical and technical football advise, I now offer this; "Do whatever you have to do to "JUST WIN BABY!
Have a Great Game RAIDERS!
