It is truly the same as it ever was. The idea of being a true offensive and defensive threat has now turned into an impossible dream of a dream. In the beginning, we had players that had proven their capability, we had Coaches that were promising and Management that was inspiring to the infamous Raider Nation. Now? We are truly one of the worst teams in the National Football League. It brings me great displeasure to write that. It honestly brings me physical pain to my soul. I'm sure I was not the only one waking up early to a cold Sunday morning, rolling out of bed; witnessing rain, darkness and wind thinking: "Please Pirates , just make it worth my while!" The end result? It's almost like I imagined. We saw, once again, a group of men that lack the confidence to get to the next damn level. The game was uninspiring, unimaginative and unimpressive. Hell, even with victory the Nation would still ask for the heads of Coaches and Players. Can you blame 'em?
