Colts Gameday Thread

If everything were to break perfectly, the Raiders could still win the division. It's a massive longshot, but it says something (just imagine if we'd scored 3+ points against the Viking).

But first things first. Beat the Colts, then worry about the "coulds" and "what ifs." A lot to ponder from this season, but for the moment, GO RAIDERS!

All I want under the tree is a victory over the Chiefs. GO RAIDERS!

Chargers Gamenight Thread

Mark Davis is lucky that the Chargers are cheap and inept, otherwise we'd be at rock bottom in the AFC West in terms of our near-term prospects. 

While we were screwing around with Josh McDaniels, the Broncos pivoted more quickly on their mistake and snagged Sean Payton. Now we not only have to contend in our division with a near dynasty with the Chiefs, but also with a Broncos head coach who seems to know a thing or two about winning and quick turnarounds. 

Antonio Pierce was minty fresh after the stink that McDaniels left behind. But are we sure that he's the right operational talent to go toe to toe with Andy Reid and Sean Payton for the next five years? Do we feel that Aiden O'Connell might soon stand equal in ability to the other three current starting QBs in our division? 

If the answer is no, then you have the answers you need when it comes to approaching the offseason.

For now, it's time for the Raiders play for respect and pride after getting shut out (!) by the Vikings and blowing the last chance of a longshot Wild Card bid. 

In a weird way, with no real stakes at hand, this still feels like a must win.

Vikings Gameday Thread

It’s safe to say that the Raiders slim playoff hopes hang in the balance today. Might as well win and keep the dream alive. Go Raiders!
