Rolando McClain at first declined comment, as has been his policy since the season opener at Tennessee.
Then he thought about it for a moment and said, “Wait, I’ve got one thing to say.”

McClain spoke to the media in the days leading up to the opener against Tennessee, then after the game.
The Raiders drew 35,721 Sunday for a 33-3 win over Seattle, their 11th consecutive blackout. With a head of steam after two consecutive wins for the first time since the end of the 2008 season, the Raiders, 4-4, host the Kansas City Chiefs this week.
A handful of players available following second straight win. Tight end Zach Miller, who has been playing with an arch injury, was spotted on crutches. Coach Tom Cable will hold his weekly press briefing at 2 p.m.
