UPDATE: Not that you needed proof, but just in case:

Stats of the Week: The Oakland Raiders had as many sacks (9) and punts (9) as first downs (9).(ESPN)

Also, just to let Devries know, I will not become a Texans fan. I mean how lame can you get, they passed on R. Bush, crazy. I don't think AL Davis would have done that. Of course, Al Davis did give up on chucky, and chucky took Al and Raiders down in the Superbowl. (Thanks for reminding me-Ashy!)

So this year, in honor of my formal cities in which I lived in and still love. I shall cheer on the Seahawks and the Panthers. So there you have it, I'm no longer a Raider fan.

I grew up in the Bay Area. (kinda) I remember watching the Raiders play the Eagles in the Superbowl in 1980. I also remember the Raiders taking down the Redskins in the Superbowl in 1983. I attended the championship game in 2000 (?) when the Raiders lost to Ray Lewis and the Ravens. Another words, I'm a huge Raider fan.

But the last few years I've been trying to "let go" and move forward. You can only be faithful for so long, and Al Davis is a complete idiot.

As for last night, I could hardly watch. The game was so bad, the Raiders were so bad. Man, these are not good times for Raider nation. Although, I think the HATED Broncos and Chiefs both lost, so that helps, at least for a week.

Yea, but the Charger nation is a smilin' this morning!

I feel your pain though. But what are you going to do, start pulling for the Texans? It was a pretty bad showing last night. I have to agree with you there. What was it, like 130 yards of total offense or something like that? What happened?!?

AAahhhhh...last night was a beautiful thing.

Here's what sucks though..even in the midst of a pathetic loss, the Raiders end up being a thorn in my side, because I lost my fantasy football game based on the performance of the Chargers D. If the Raiders just could had enough pride to go for a FG at the end to avoid the shutout, I would have won.
