Fourth down and 20 some yards to the end zone with just enough time on the clock for one last play in the game. Stabler calls a time out and goes over to the sideline. Raiders are down! John Madden is waving his arms, ranting and raving and giving suggestions in his typical frenzied fashion. Stabler seems to be looking over top of him lost in thought. Madden finally asks him what he thought. Stabler, cool as a cucumber looked at him and said, "You want to know something?" Madden said "yes" thinking he was going to give him a play to run. Stabler said, "These people sure are getting their money's worth today." He turned from Madden without another word, called a play in the huddle and threw the winning TD.4 hours ago · 14

Reggie is f***ing up worse than ever this offseason!!!! Nelson is... ok but Crabs is a top 10 wr in the league and Nelson is 33 and full of injury problems! Why let Crabs go when you could of got atleast a 4th or 3rd round pick for him or a decent defensive player in a trade! No one we signed this year is a real difference maker and will help the team win! Reggie loves playing moneyball and picking up b and c list players for cheaper... can't win a championship that way by any means! Some of these guys on our roster shouldn't even be in the NFL, CFL maybe. Why trade your arch enemy the Pats the best return man in the league and a offensive play maker and a 6thrd pick for a 5th rd pick????? 80% of the players Reggie drafts never see playing time because they end up being busts! Building through the draft dosent work! Ask the Browns..... quality free agents don't even want to vist the Raiders because they already know Reggie will try to low ball them on money! Sure save your money Reggie to pay Mack and get your bonus from Mark for being under cap but what's the sense of paying Mack a hundred million dollars and Carr a hundred million dollars if you don't have money to get other quality players to help win games! This roster right now looks almost as bad as it was when Reggie first started 5 years ago on his 3-year Super Bowl plan remember that trust the process.... I guess now it's a 10 years Super Bowl plan LOL.... the word is they now have 27 million or so to spend by cutting everyone they cut where the hell is that money going there's nobody hardly quality left in free agency because they're gone in the first week or two as they should and we lost out trying to lowball people on contract offers.2 days ago · 2
Glad to hear we're still looking at wideouts. We're lacking the big outside deep threat. Jordy is good and has good hands, but he's not what he once was. I would not be opposed to bringing back Brice Butler, he'd be cheap and offers that stretch the field presence you need to make a smash mouth running game work.2 days ago · 1
The whole idea of bringing new blood in just fits with the new coach and Raider mystique. I've been a Raiders fan all my life and they have never been conventional. Ok they bring in Nelson, who still has plenty of gas in the tank and knows how to win. So they fill some of the holes and make some lineup changes, to stay competitive, now let's see how they do with the draft choices. That's going to be the real test. Cmon Raider nation let's get behind this coaching staff and not question their decisions. Their going to be better this year and this coaching will be more demanding, anything will be an improvement over last year.22 hours ago

😂😂Crusty Nelson😂😂 The Savior!!! Good Lord what a AWFUL signing. Perhaps him and Lynch can go shopping together and get their seniors discounts. Ya this speedster is going to stretch the field for Cooper. 😉 Good grief.4 days ago · 11

Jairo I follow this page. It goes back to the old silver and black days with Stabler, Bilettnikof, Alzado, Hayes, and of course my favorite coach of all time Madden. I think they are getting serious about winning AFC. I just wished they would stay in Oakland.4 days ago · 1
We dealt Patterson because holton Is younger runs better routes cheaper and has sure hands and is a perfect slot for us. Patterson had speed and was good on ST plus that's more cap for us to give Mack his contract4 days ago · 2
