Former Chiefs and Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer, a Raider-hater from way back, fielded a quesiton recently on his Sirius radio show about the Raiders inability to finish and resurrected an old theme, which was dutifully printed and placed in the locker room where players could read it.
With some words in bold face and underlined for emphasis, it read:
“The one constant yuo can count on in playing the Raiders is that they don’t finish. They don’t finish plays and they don’t finish games. I always told my players that if they keep playing hard against the Raiders, (the Raiders) would eventually fold. That is why I knew we would always win.
That is still the perception in the league today.”
He left out the part about “hitting them in the mouth.”
More to come .. .
