I don’t know but for some reason, I’m the “cup is half full” guy this season. As far as I’m concerned, the Jacksonville Jaguars win this weekend was a fluke. Minus a fluke kickoff return and a fluke run by Maurice Jones-Drew and we had a win. Darren McFadden was in “Beast Mode” (Over 200 all purpose yards and 3 TD’s). Jason Campbell looked great when he wasn’t passing from his hip with a “D” lineman laying on him. (Campbell was 11 of 14 for 204 yards, two touchdowns and a perfect passer rating of 158.3 in the first half) Jacoby Ford finally showed some rookie faults. All in all the Raiders looked improved. Every week, the Raiders seem to gain more confidence even in a loss.
This weekend we have the ill fated Denver Broncos to look forward to. RUN DMC is licking his chomps at this opportunity to first pass 1000 yards rushing (for the first time in his career) and second treat the Broncos like rented mules! (The Raiders last 1000 yard rusher was Justin Fargas in 2007.) Last game against the donkeys, McFadden owned them! And by owned, I mean 191 all purpose yards and 3 TD’s. By the end of the game, McFadden was sitting in the owner’s box enjoying a cigar and chatting up Patrick Bowlen’s old lady.
What happened? ….
The Bronco’s are in shambles after firing their head coach Josh Mc”Kiffin” who’s experiment of upsetting and dispose of every decent player on their squad. Okay I lied; they were in shambles before he was fired. I was hoping they would extend him 30 more years! I am looking forward to the annihilation of the donkeys this weekend. I expect a hard hitting game and much quit from the Denver Burros. Long live the ghost of Josh McKiffin!
