As the date nears, the plot thickens.
Word has begun to spread that Gerard Warren, the one-time Raider, is once again returning to New England who cut him earlier this month to make room for another tightend since released. Warren and the Patriots will travel to Oakland and be hosted by Richard Seymour, the one-time Patriot.
They will not face each other. Not directly. Their teams' defenses will face one another's offenses, and they will be right in the middle of both sides of what promises to be a hell of a showdown.
After the great Snowbowl of 2002 I always look forward to a Raiders/Patriots matchup. And I'll always have respect for Richard Seymour. Too bad he'll be facing one heck of an o-line..
I predict Warren will have the better game.
