RIP to another Raider great.
So many great stories in this thread... I try to explain that concept to my non Raider fan friends. Being a Raider fan is so much more than rooting for a team. It's an identity. Personally, once I...
LOL... my first Raider jersey was from the Sears catalog in the mid 70's
Great stuff, Stork. I didn't see the game on tv, but according to various accounts, the refs chose to allow Franco's TD because they were afraid there would be a riot at 3 rivers stadium. Not sure of...
I remember a friend of mine asking what would have happened if we had Bo for that game, and I told him we would have lost 51-10. The Bills rolled us that day.
Ah yeah that great MNF game... one of Snakes last great games in Silver N Black. The kings of Monday Night!
As far as that Jets game, I was devastated cause we were the best team in football that...
We have a pretty diverse and eclectic group of die hards in this forum that span many generations and locations. With some dead time between now and the draft I thought it would be fun to see what...
wow just saw that Charlie Sumner passed away. As others have already said he was the architect of the great Raider defenses of the early 80s and mastermind of one of the all time great plays in the...
lol... no worries. They can merge.
Looks like we're on the board. Good addition and it weakens a division rival.
I'm good with it. He was winning player, and has paid his dues as a coach working with one of the best. Good luck.
I was so disappointed by the effort in that game. We even led early if my memory is correct. That loss helped seal Hue's fate. (Plus he wanted way more power than he deserved.)
Maybe this was mentioned earlier in this thread, but I wasnt going to weed thru every post. The bigger picture issue, in my humble opinion, isn't Reggies vision or whether or not he's done a good job...
As a Raider and Met fan, it's sad but true.
The Trooper, as in the Iron Maiden song.
Barring injury, Carr should and probably will be the starter all season long, win or lose. Anything less will not be good. Regardless of our record, we need to see how he develops and matures, during...
True/False. DA and RM will be back next year?
I became a Raiders fan in the mid 70's, and I remember when they drafter Charlie Philyaw fan. What a charactor! Some of those stories are legend
My brother and I plan on going to opening day at Met Life against the Jets. We went last year and it was like 20 degrees out, hopefully it will be in the 70's this time lol
I LOVE this pick. D linemen can be had later in the draft. This kid has franchise QB all over him. **** the haters, lets go Raiders!
This. It takes winners to attract winner. Years from now, when we have a sustainable winning team year in year out, we will remember this as the genesis.
From Ian Rapoprt's twitter
and from Vic Tafur
I like both!
Um, yeah. Poster fail :laugh:
There's a great story about this game in the book "Badasses". Apparently, the Tooz was out til the wee hours in the morning the night before, and one of the hotel employees tipped off the Broncos,...
I was just a kid in '76 (i BECAME A FAN IN 74) and I remember that game in '76, thinking what a waste going 13-1 in the regular season and blowing it to New England. We played like sheet for most of...
