Tell you the truth in 2001 I was very concerned over the prospect of facing the Rams in the Super Dome. I think the Patriots saved us from a blowout.
2000 was our best chance has we gotten past the Ravens, that loss was symbolic as I believe thats when Al began to question Gruden's ability as a coach. Gannon's injury notwithstanding that was one of the most impotent offensive efforts I have ever seen, that Baltimore defense was great, but the Raiders had the players win that game. Gruden's gameplan stunk.
