Currently, there are members of The Only Nation second-guessing their loyalty to the Oakland Raiders due to the Raiders free agency periods that continue to come and go. While free agents have viewed the autumn wind as a cold overcast, coinciding with a black hole that swallows careers – one cannot view the miss on Randall Cobb as a reason to waive a white flag.

We cannot give up hope if Suh looks down upon the Oakland Raider organization and the opportunity to be the face of a franchise when it returns to relevance.

The Green Bay Packers won. Their most important free agent chose a comfortable future filled with optimism and talent, over money. And based on the way some player’s careers have gone when chasing pay days, Cobb quite possibly could have made a wise decision.

If Ndamukong Suh somehow signs with the Dolphins, I don’t think he made the best decision. If his decision lies on the most guaranteed money, then he may not even be a good fit for the Raiders anyways. I know what you’re thinking – another Reggie rider..
