Lions Gamenight Thread

The arrow is not pointing up for the Raiders or Josh McDaniels. I'm afraid that a loss tonight would mean getting stuck with the proverbial fork.

This all starts at the top with Mark Davis, I'm afraid. You just can't be in this situation year after year after year, coach after coach after coach, etc. 

Mark Davis hasn't figured out the coaching position, the GM position or the quarterback position during the entirety of his ownership tenure, and he is the head of an organization that has made a sport of laughably bad and awkward draft picks.

This isn't being negative. It's being honest. There's a difference. 

There's only one thing to do now, beat the Lions and turn this sorry ship around.

Bears Gameday Thread

This is such a perfect test for this team, at this time. An obvious should-win game against the lowly Bears helmed by Tyler Bagent (!). A chance to get to 4-3 and keep momentum. A loss? That would be very telling. Just win, baby! GO RAIDERS!

Packers Gamenight Thread

Well, this game just feels pivotal for some reason. An odd numbered game that sparks the transition from early season to mid season. 

You go to 1-4 and things start to look pretty dark. You claw back to 2-3 and glimmers of hope begin to shine.

The Packers with Jordan Love are beatable. It's time for the Raiders to RISE UP and seize the momentum. GO RAIDERS!

P.S. Also, a FAVOR you can do me.

Chargers Gameday Thread

 Well, I'm late to this one, it's halftime, but let's face it, it's over. GO RAIDERS? 

UPDATE: Well, it WASN'T over, that is until McDaniels THREW the ball with first and goal and Josh Jacobs on his team and a rookie QB.

This is getting into fireable territory between last week and this one.
