Just when you’re ready to write Michael Huff off as a bust, he goes out and creates one of the most dramatic moments in recent Raiders history. The Holy Roller it wasn’t, but Huff’s rip of the rock that ended in Tyvon Branch running away with the Chargers 13-game win streak will certainly be remembered fondly by Raider Nation.
For his 11-tackle, one sack and one forced fumble performance this past Sunday, Huff earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Congrats to Huff Daddy!
I’ll be the first to acknowledge my up and down opinion of the former Longhorn. Just last week I was calling for Tom Cable to put us out of our misery and pull the plug on the Huff experiment. Now, I’m begging for John Marshall to dial up more DB blitzes and put all that Raider speed to good use.
Savor the flavor, Huff. You’ve earned a special place in the hearts of Raider Nation.
Naturally after the next missed tackle in the open field occurs I’ll be calling for Huff to take a seat again. Then he’ll come up with another clutch play in the closing minutes of a game and I’ll be eating more crow.
Such is the nature of the love/hate/love relationship with #24.
