Make no mistake, the Raiders are playing for their identity today. The stigma of being a team that cannot stand the slightest success, i.e. a complacent host, can be exorcised today (!) on a gray, wet, and windy field near the surging Pacific. We must win - there is no option here. Advance or perish, fight hard or fade into obscurity for another year.
God Bless the Raiders! And by the venerable balls of Al Davis, may every Raider give his best today.
