Oakland Raiders Post Game Thread: Thank You For My Early Christmas Present!!!

New, comments

Last night my son asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I had no answer. Fortunately, there is no "thing" that I need this Christmas season, but what the Raiders did today was the salve that I needed for my soul.

After two years(Three Seasons) of writing, near daily, about this team, I had hit my limit. My blood pressure could no longer handle the insanity and listlessness that had become my weekly mood after the Raiders would completely befuddle me.

Today's victory, over a very solid Texan team, and a team that we seem to have played, and lost to every year, is as sweet as any that we've had.

It wasn't like the Jet game, where the Raiders squandered countless opportunities to put the Jets away and then fortunately came through with a 57 yard field goal to win. This win was a combination of everyone's talents coming together on both sides of the ball to punch a team in the mouth, step on their necks and slowly suck the life out of them.

The game fittingly ended with Derek Burgess BLASTING Matt Schaub (For his second sack of the game) and giving the home fans a deserved early Christmas present.

I can finally say "RRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!" and not feel like a one man choir!!!!
