"I grew up in San Jose so I'm neutral as far as the hostility towards the Niners by us Raider's. But I have been a life-long "Giants" fan!
Is it possible to get some "inspiration" happening from a team that has been in their Championship twice in Three Years!
Is not that the way of The Raiders to be what we once were?
With all this Winning going down around us, well why the hell not us too?
I have never in my life seen such a competitive Bay Area!
Other than that mess against The G-Men, the Niners look pretty good again, and what about those SF Giants! Back in the Series and its going to be hard to stop that Locamotive!
Back to Oakland.. I know Raiders hate to compare especially rivals but maybe, just maybe some of this good fortune can rub off on us.
The Chiefs are dead meat and Denver may lose and god knows how the Bolts will respond after that ass-whipping they just took, so the Raiders could find themselves a game or less out of first place in the WEST!
I know after Jacksonville, its looks pretty damn scary, but overtime wins are huge and something to help us build up the team we want to see playing well each week. It seems like our Identity Crisis is becoming more of getting the right players in the right position to be successful. If it takes Allen all year to do that, so be it!
But the Raiders firstly must have a little good luck, and "Inspiration from across the Bay" cannot be a bad thing for sure.
