It’s going to get worse...

It’s going to get worse…

By theoaklandraiders

In 2009 Raiders were garbage.
In 2010 Raiders became average.
In 2011 the Raider are striving to become good.

The way to BECOME the best is the FIGHT against the best. Beating up the Broncos, Chiefs and Chargers is not enough. That’s what got this team to average. But to become good Oakland has to face the toughest, roughest, meanest, most physical, most intelligent and most vicious teams in the league.

Lucky for us, the Jets, Patriots and Texans are next on our schedule. This is what Hue Jackson WANTS! This is what he NEEDS to create a powerhouse. One round with Mike Tyson will teach you more about boxing than a hundred wins against no-name tomato cans.

Think about our team at this point last year. Coach and owner hadn’t spoken in months. Campbell benched, massive QB controversy. Offensive struggling, couldn’t get in the endzone. DMAC out with injury. This team was on the ropes.

Now look at the Oakland Raiders. This offense and this defense have the potential to be amazing! We have coaches that can take this squad to the top. We have the talent and the team to become something very special. Now take all of that and throw it into the hottest inferno and smash it with a sledgehammer! Forge STEEL through savage battle and suffering! What emerges when the smoke clears may become the most dominant Raider team in history…

This season will be a heartbreaker. More injuries, more defeats, more bloody, body-strewn football fields. But if the Raiders can keep standing back up and keep fighting for their lives, they will win this division. They will earn the right to compete in the playoffs among the best teams in this league.

They will have earned the right to be called “good”.
