Merrry Christmas, Raider Takers

I'm resisting the temptation to make this a Clown Car Christmas after last night's debacle.

I will say this: how can this team, with the best receiver in the NFL, one of the best RBs, and an (allegedly) very good QB put up another offensive stinker like this? How does our defense so regularly find a way to lose in the last minutes? I boil it down to this: this is a team that lacks FORTITUDE. 

But let's forget all that for today. I love you all, you bring your passion, intellect and heart to this place. Merry Christmas, may the Good News bring you joy and happiness during this holiday season!

Patriots Gameday Thread

I've been doing this a long time, and I'm hard pressed to think of another season that was this exhausting and disappointing. There's outright sucking, we've seen numerous years of that. There's been promising seasons that fizzled toward the end. And there's been a few playoff seasons that were never destined to go much farther than the first round. 

But this season, wow. There's just no conceivable reason for several of these losses, and these same losses have been a pivot point between abject failure and playoff aspirations. We're talking about history-making meltdowns, with the latest one against the Rams being the nail in the coffin of a mini-resurgence of actual playoff hopes. 

Anyhow, just had to get that off my chest. Now we're playing for...pride? Signs of heart and life? Momentum heading into 2023? You name it. All I can say for now is: GO RAIDERS!

Rams Gamenight Thread

Well, this is a "should win" if there ever was one, which always scares me with the Raiders. Time to keep the momentum rolling! GO RAIDERS!

Momentum? Yes! We actually have a little for once, so keep it going. One thing is for sure, the Raiders ALWAYS make it interesting. GO RAIDERS!
