"Oakland Raiders are always winning?"

Really?? I mean they definitely have been impressive the past 3 weeks, but don't you think you're overstating it just a hair? The Niners, being one of the most troubled teams in the league at the moment, SPANKED the Raiders and made their QB look like a high school kid with the lowest QB rating the Raiders have seen in decades, and they just finished breaking the record for the most losses (11 or more) for SEVEN consecutive seasons of ANY team in NFL history - even including the TB Bucs of the 70's and the Detroit Lions!! So props to Oakland for what they've accomplished VERY recently a few times in a row now, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Its going to take A LOT MORE than just 3 good (I'll even say dominant) performances before they're going to be looked at as "always winning." Let's keep things in perspective, please.

I mean you could almost just as easily say the Niners are always winning now since they just came off a win and haven't had a loss in "weeks" too, but that would be pretty ridiculous as well.

Aw geez, we really have to root for the Donkeys? For practical reasons, yeah, but one's soul is at stake for doing so. Oh well, stained soul for the cause. I'd rather just see it as a Chiefs loss than anything good happening for the Donkos. This will take beer...lots and lots of beer.

And F the Haters.

If it makes you feel better, I'm sure Bronco fans want to lose out to ensure a top 3 draft pick. A couple of wins and they're going to be a bad football team with a boring draft pick (like the 49ers) haha

Look here Raider Nation, and Raider Haters

We have to understand that the Oakland Raiders:

1. Were In the same conversation with the New England Patriots, and other QB led teams. How did we fall out? We lost our superb QB, Rich Gannon. Thus, the start of the losing seasons began.

2. Have a record of 5-4, are a game winning field goal away from
Being 6-3 (Cardinals), and 3 key injured players away from being 7-2 (49ers). Also are 3-0 in the AFC West.

3. Has been officially said to have the fastest team in the NFL and the most talented team in the NFL

4. Have broken several records this season and is playing better this year than in the past 6-7 seasons. With 3 consecutive wins, 1000 offensive yards in 2 games, huge lopsided wins, 3-0 in the division, ranked in the top ten for 3/4 offensive categories, one of the best defenses.

5. Ridiculing the Raiders by saying, "It must be the end of the world", is just preposterous. We are one of the Most Dominant Franchises in the NFL
Not to mention the fact that we have a better record against 97% of other NFL teams.

6. 7 years ago, people wouldnt dare disregard the Raiders. Because every NFL team feared the Silver and Black. You would either love the Raiders, or hate the Raiders, but you would never disregard the Raiders.
I can recall one Simpsons' episode, of which Lisa was betting in a footbal game. When asked who was she betting for, she said "the Raiders, because they always cheat"

It is predicated, but When you say "Oakland is always winning" - Your are correct. Currently they are!


Offense:

PTS 26.1 (6th)

YDS 361.0 (9th)

PASS YDS 198.8 (22nd)

RUSH YDS 162.2 (2nd)\

Defense:

PTS 20.9 (13th)

YDS 309.6 (7th)

PASS YDS 184.8 (3rd)

RUSH YDS 124.8 (26th)
