The Oakland Raiders old nemesis keeps showing it’s head almost every weekend. Not the Broncos. Not the Chargers. It’s that little yellow handkerchief that seems to find its way from a polyester back pocket of the zebras to the Coliseum turf too many times during a game. The Raider will never be a championship style team until the every game mistakes are alleviated. The main offender is … well… everyone. The ones that are the most obvious are the ones from the secondary which turn 3rd and 20 to first down. (Thank you Stanford Routt, Michael Huff, and Chris Johnson) That’s what separates us from team like the Colts… mistakes and miscues.
The Raiders have never been a team of discipline. Gruden had the team on the right track earlier in the decade. Since then, gross negligence of the word TEAM. Nothing kills a loud Coliseum crowd like a yellow hanky on the field. Everyone in the stadium knows it’s usually against us and 80 percent of the time it is! We lead the league in these acts of stupidity and it will continue until Tom Cable says “NO MORE”. Then and only then will we will actually see the real identity of this team.
