News You Can't Use

Well, Raiders fans, it's time for more News You Can't Use...Don't blame me, I don't write this stuff.

In this edition, we have the following snippet from
this article in the Sacramento Bee: “I've never thought of Woodson as a tackler even in a theoretical sense, but he was a playmaker, the kind of guy who could make things happen. Have you ever known Al Davis to love anyone on the field more than a playmaker?”

Huh? Charles Woodson is not even a tackler in a “theoretical sense”? You might want to call up Tom Brady and Terrell Owens, among others, to test your theory. I think one can legitimately question Charles’ effort in certain instances, but how can you suggest that he's never tackled well? That’s exactly what sets Charles apart in a position populated by dainty prima donnas: his physical tackling. And what’s with the past tense: “was a playmaker”? He’s injured, not dead.

And that, Raiders fans, is news you can’t use.

P.S. That silly Al Davis, eh? He just loves “playmakers.” Other owners, they don’t like playmakers. They like guys who can theoretically tackle, like Phillip Buchanon.
