OK, so I was a rabid, severely knowledgeable fan during Stabler and Plunkett era's, then I fell out of being a fan of any football for many years.

This year, they are good and fun to watch, but I am still trying to catch up to who is who and so on.

The last game, the loss to the Chiefs, did they have injuries to the offensive line that were noteworthy? Thought I heard that but dont know and when I research it I get more confused.

Cant wait to see if they do well in the playoffs, finally I can enjoy football again. Though to be honest, I usually watch the games after I tape them and I ff between each play, that 30 seconds between each play, saves a lot of time.

You can’t help but be impressed by what McKenzie has built in Oakland. Out of all the former Packers personnel executives who have become GMs, I don’t know if anyone inherited a worse situation than McKenzie. The Raiders were cap-strapped and downtrodden when he came on board. He’s made the most of his first-round selections and built a program that can contend for years to come.

Well, that's what happens when I say nice things about people. Sorry for Mr. Carr.

Raiders have looked great. Right up until Carr broke his leg I'm thinking. He has become a great starting quarterback, don't see them going far in the playoffs now.

The injury is the epitome of what being a Raider fan is all about.

If you are one, you will totally understand, if you arent, you dont want to.

Have you taken a gander over at the running Browns thread?

Years and years of despair in there. They haven't even caught whiff of a winning season in 5 years and 792 posts. They have actually been getting worse.
