The Oakland Raiders are all in! They have bought into what Tom Cable is selling and are drinking Cable Kool-Aid! Emotions ran high last week during the Raiders rampage over the Broncos. There were scrums a plenty as the Raiders and Broncos mixed it up several times after the plays were over. This demonstrates to me as a fan that the Raiders are playing like a team and protecting each other like a family. The Raiders and Broncos don’t play well together but the extra curricular activities in the last few games have reveal to me the heart of a team.

 There are teams loaded with talent, like the Bengals, Redskins, and Cowboys, but they are missing one thing, heart. Heart is the foundation that makes good teams great! Heart is what makes a 4-11 team play a spoiler roll in week 16 in an irrelevant game. Heart is what kept us in numerous games this season. It’s what brought us back from a number of deficits this season and it’s what brought us to several victories. Heart is what makes an exceptional 2010 Raider team legendary!
