Oakland Raiders Game Thread 11-23-08: Oakland at Denver

Is this our Super Bowl? Will today be the day that this team snaps out of a 6 year hangover?

I don't have the answers to either of those questions, but, I do have hope.

I HOPE that JaMarcus steps up and that the defense will continue to give the offense a chance to win the game.

There has been talk that Shanahan will not go after Nnamdi, by the Rat himself, then that just says to the Raiders that the Broncos may go directly after him. Personally, I'd like to see that. I'd like to see Cutler, Marshall and Royal take it to Nnamdi 8-10 times today. Then I'd also like to see a pick or two and 5-6 passes defensed. They can get a couple catches on him, but he'd win the War. Once again, I'd like to see someone go after Nnamdi. I mean, let the kid play! This is NOT unlike the pitchers NOT pitching to Bonds when he was on a tear. I just want to scream, "Pitch to Nnamdi!!!".

Anybody who can make Nnamdi Asomugha a household name must be one damn good Football player, we just don't really get to see him play.

I also HOPE that Darren McFadden is healthy. If he is healthy, then he should be a large part of the offense today.

Who else here would like to see a little Wild Hawg today? Show of hands?

I HOPE that the Raiders win today...Will they? According to recent history...Probably NOT...But they CAN....
