Yeah, No

The Chargers got Jim Harbaugh as head coach, we got the Chargers' ex-GM whom we got fired after that blowout victory. 

The Chiefs are in the AFC Championship again, and the Broncos are not going to get worse under Sean Payton. 

I'm going to go on the record and say I'm not super optimistic about Antonio Pierce and Tom Telesco building a powerhouse contender in the AFC West. 

We shall see, and I sure hope I'm wrong. This just feels to me like Davis making up for something (letting Bisaccia go) that he didn't have to make up for.

But just because the players love Pierce doesn't mean he's the best thing for the players, the scheming and the long-term prospects of building an elite team.

Maybe this is a Dan Campbell-type situation, a coach who can will and motivate the squad to the top. 

I sure hope so. 

Maybe I'm just jaded and worn out by all of Mark Davis's misses. But sorry, I'm just not feeling it. Please convince me that I'm wrong.

Broncos Gameday Thread

What are the Raiders playing for today? Pride, clarity, a sign, a higher draft pick,the closing of a chapter or the opening of a new one? You tell me. 

Do you think Jimmy G. could have won us a game or two more and put us in the mix? Historically, the guy wins, even if it often doesn't look pretty. Or do you think it was correct to stick with AOC to the bitter end? Do we have our coach, or does the search officially begin tonight?

So many questions, and another season on the outside looking in, 'round and round we go and it's Groundhog Day again. GO RAIDERS!
