Rocky Mountain High

Here’s one guy who puts the “high” in Rocky Mountain. In a piece riddled with cheap shots (brace yourselves, Raider Nation, for a steady stream of “Al Davis using a walker is cosmically symbolic” tripe from similarly lazy sportswriters, because there is surely more on the way…), Anthony Cotton of the Denver Post writes: “The Raiders seem to have taken out a long-term lease on last place in the AFC West, a far cry from the days when the franchise was committed to excellence.”

Oh, those old bygone days, when the team "was" committed to excellence, so long ago I can hardly remember...Anthony, the Raider Nation has a pop quiz for you:

1. Name the only AFC West team to appear in a Super Bowl in the 2000s to date.

2. Name the last team in the AFC West to win the division three straight seasons.

3. How many times have the Raiders won the AFC West since the Broncos last won the division (hint: 3)?

4. Name the only AFC West team to win more than two Super Bowls.

For extra credit, Anthony, you can read my Listen Up, Raiders Haters and turn in your granola.
