Previewing today’s Raiders vs. Chargers game

Terrelle Pryor’s first NFL start will almost assuredly be Chargers coach Norv Turner’s final game in San Diego. Here’s a look at how things are shaping up for the Raiders in their final game of 2012:

    Al Davis didn’t pass away until October 2011

    I do think however, that there will be a much bigger and better HC candidate pool this offseason than last season. So it might be in our best interest to take a serious look at the candidates before we let DA go, and then go after a proven HC. I say hold on to DA until we find one in case the ones we like don’t want to come here. The worst thing we can do is let DA go, and then end up with someone worse.

    =====

    There’s going to be a much bigger pool but there’s also going to be a lot more teams dipping into it. The pool is bigger because many are looking like they’ll get sacked in the next couple days. Some will be recycled this season, some will go back to coordinator roles, while some ex-HCs will be getting second or third shots.

    In the end, even if the Raiders did want to replace DA, they’d have to get in line behind several currently more attractive places for the best HC candidates to look at.

    haha…Are you clowns ready for the Toilet Bowl Part 2 with Raiders vs Chargers 2?

    I called with the first game of the season between these two crap teams that it was the Toilet Bowl.

    Funny how at the end of the season game, it is a Part 2 of the Toilet Bowl!

    You guys suck…just like DA sucks!

    dr. robert doesn’t grasp the concept of outliers. To him, it’s either 100% or zero.

    He’s arguing vs Sports Illustrated and statistics:

    “History has shown that if you don’t have elite QB, you’re probably not winning the SB.”

    Brad Johnson’s Super Bowl year was pretty damn impressive.

    22 TD’s to 6 INT’s, Pro Bowl, #3 in QBR, #5 in completion %, Super Bowl win.

    Arguably one of the greatest single-season resumes in NFL QB history.

    nope.

    unless u count jim mcmahon, doug williams, jeff hostetler, mark rypien, brad johnson, and trent dilfer as great.

    —————————-

    Ok, I’ll modify that statement, your best odds of winning a SB in the modern era where passing dictates everything, you need a great QB.

    Brad Johnson was the last mediocre QB to win a SB where The old philosophy was Great Defense, great running game, and a QB who didn’t screw things up.

    Since 2002, Brady, Big Ben, manning brothers, Rodgers and Brady, have won all the SB’s and it has been via the Air to win it all.

    He got all of that one!!! LOL

    Jay Glazer said Major OFFENSIVE COACHING CHANGES coming as early as tonight!

    Said Dennis Allen seems safe for now but you never know what Mark Davis will do.

    Also Im hearing through an insider on Preimium that DA will be safe UNLESS JON GRUDEN wants the job. Yep Jon Grudens name is still out there. Bottom line if Jon Gruden really wanted th RAider job.. he will be HC next year

    =====

    That actually wasn’t a curve ball. I remember Rick Reuschel well since he pitched several years with the Giants. “Big Daddy” was the master of changing speeds on his fastball/sinker. A lot of his pitches had that late dip. His “fastest” pitch was something in the mid 80′s, but it made guys look like they were trying to catch up to a Nolan Ryan fastball after seeing a mix of his change ups all game :-)

    Colts play with heart, wish we would play like that.

    We will see who has heart today. I bet TP6 plays with heart.

    Dakota,

    Still haven’t determined how I will delivery the blog FF championship Al Davis Cup to you.

    Part of me wants to give it you gracefully, another part wants to go WWE and act like I am and than smash upside your head.
