…maybe the year!
I LMFAO when I read this.

Let him tell it and he’ll give you every reason why his offense stinks worse than Lady Gaga’s taint after an evening in a skirt steak thong.

This is is reference to the Oakland Raiders and the fact that they brought Greg Knapp back as the offensive coordinator. I’m still scratching my head on that one, they tossed his ass the last time he was the OC because he sucked. I don’t see anything different.

Here’s where it came from:

Greg Knapp Has Plenty Of Excuses

Greg Knapp doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt. Not in Oakland he doesn’t.

We’ve seen his tired act before and last time it resulted in Tom Cable taking over the play calling duties. Guess what? The offense improved under Cable.

So here we are again with Knapp at the helm and the offense is again sputtering. Last time around Knapp had JaMarcus Russell as his biggest excuse. This time he’s hanging his excuse hat on injuries and the need for patience.


Excellent video of a paratrooper’s 800th jump. Good way to remember it!

This is pretty cool. There’s  a brief description of the game with some footage underneath each one. I don’t have a dog in this fight, but I’m gonna enjoy the game anyway.

The 10 Best NFL Teams of All-Time To Not Win The Super Bowl

With the Giants and Pats facing off in a Super Bowl rematch, we can’t forget the significance of the first matchup. The Pats were 1 win away from an undefeated season and most likely would’ve been called, The Greatest Team of All-Time. But one Giant loss forever altered how they’ll be remembered 10, 20, 30 years down the road. Unfortunately, history rarely remembers the losers; the teams who came up short despite their overwhelming dominance in the regular season. This list will countdown the top teams to not win the Super Bowl in their respective seasons. Let us know if we missed any teams in the comments.

Hard hitting, neck snapping safety dies at 61.

Yes he hit a man so hard that he broke his neck, but he was one hell of a baller.

Former Raiders’ ‘Assassin’ Jack Tatum Dies at 61

COLUMBUS, Ohio — He was called the “Assassin.”

Jack Tatum was one of the hardest hitters in the NFL, a Pro Bowl safety who intimidated opposing players with bone-jarring tackles that helped make his Oakland Raiders one of toughest teams of its era.

He’s also a player who will always be tied to one of the game’s most tragic moments — a hit in a preseason game that left New England Patriots receiver Darryl Stingley paralyzed from the neck down.

Tatum died Tuesday at age 61 in an Oakland hospital. The cause was a massive heart attack, according to friend and former Ohio State teammate John Hicks. Tatum had battled diabetes and other health problems for years, Hicks said.

The collision with Stingley happened Aug. 12, 1978, at Oakland Coliseum.


John Madden

John Madden has been one of my favorite personalities in football.
I am a Raiders fan, been one since I was a kid, at least 35 years now. John Madden was the best coach the Raiders ever had, in my opinion. He brought a lot to the game after he retired as a coach and entered the broadcasting field. 30 years, 1979 to 2009 was a hell of a run. He gave insights that most of the commentators couldn’t come close to.

He coached as he commented on the games. He’ll be sorely missed.
