Congratulations to Raiders Senior Executive John Herrera! You’ve officially earned the vaunted title of No Talent Ass Clown.
From this day forward, you’ll be forever a part of a special club that boasts of such legendary members as Michael Bolton, Gilbert Arenas, George W. Bush, John Edwards, 50 Cent, Paul Walker, Bill Maher and Elisabeth Hasselbeck just to name a few.
After assaulting Tim Kawakami on camera last year, we finally understood why Al Davis had so much faith in you. That was a special moment. Only a chosen few would dare to ascribe to such levels of professionalism. As Morpheus once said, “There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” You, sir, are not only putting your foot prints deep into the path of professional ineptitude, you’re blazing a new trail for others to follow in the future.
The Kawakami incident was a bold step towards Ass Clown status but it wasn’t enough to seal the deal.
Then, you went out and topped yourself one year later by waging a public war with Rich Gannon. What an amazing talent you are, Herrera. The genius to ban Gannon from the facility for doing his job as a broadcaster. The sheer bravery displayed when reminding us all that the former MVP tossed 5 picks in the Super Bowl when that had nothing to do with why he was being asked off the CBS broadcast to begin with. While others were silent, you stepped forward and called out Gannon for his comments that were insensitive to 9/11.
Then, yesterday, you delivered the final blow as you broke Gannon’s olive branch in half and tossed it back into his face then reassured us all that JaMarcus Russell is in Las Vegas for a “legitimate reason” with a Raiders staff member.
Great work, Herrera! You make Raider Nation proud!
I’m sure that by writing this I’ll never be allowed into the Coliseum again. That’s fine by me. I’ll be more than happy to drink a few beers in the parking lot with Gannon as we chat about all the things a former MVP could teach a young quarterback with a wealth of untapped potential.
If you want to know why the Oakland Raiders have fallen off the face of the football map, with only the Detroit Lions waiting to break their fall, then take a good look at the face of Herrera.
No, he’s not the only problem. He’s not even the biggest problem. But he sure isn’t part of the solution.
