So on the eve of the renewed feud between two of pro footballs most bitter rivals, I returned the favor. You can read my take on what the Chiefs must do to defeat the Raiders here.
Now before all of Raider Nation bans me from the Black Hole, keep in mind that it ain’t what ya do, it’s how that ya do it. When the Raiders were on the goal line and had Zack Crockett lined up in the backfield, the whole world knew what was coming next. Now stopping Crockett…well…that was different story. Now, just think of the entire field as the goal line when Darren McFadden is in the game. It’s easy to know what to do but trying to stop Run DMC is a different ball game. Stopping McFadden and a few other areas are the keys I outlined for the Chiefs to try and walk out of the East Bay with a win.
Think of this more like two lawyers sharing all their evidence on the eve of the trial. After all, there’s no reason we can’t be civil. I mean you do have to feel something for all those poor Chiefs fans, rooting aimlessly for years, not even knowing what the Lombardi trophy looks like anymore, crying more often than Dick Vermeil in a press conference.
Ok…enough with the pleasantries. Feel free to cruise on over to Arrowhead Addict and let those BBQ aficionados turned frustrated football fanatics that Raider Nation is in full effect for Sunday’s clash!
Just win, baby!
