Eventually the Raiders will come back and win another Superbowl. Chargers never will.

/DIAF Pryor
//never forget

OSU could have avoided what happened last year had they taken a self imposed bowl ban in 2011 under Fickle, so blame Gene Smith (who is quite an idiot).

I'm interested to see how Pryor does for the Raiders. He's had a few years to learn under other QBs and working with QB coaches, and there is a current era of mobile QBs like him (although with better passing) being successful. He's bigger and faster than most of the current mobile QBs as well. I'll be watching Thursday night to see what happens.

Ten years of bad drafting, bad contracts and bad football players creates one hell of a big hole to crawl out from.  The Raiders could have won any track meet they sent players to, but being a good athlete doesn't mean you're going to be a good football player.  Case in point:  Darrius Heyward-Bey.  "Blazing speed, but suspect hands."  YOU ARE A GODDAMN WIDE RECEIVER.  If you can't catch the ball, it invalidates those turbo-jets you have in your hamstrings.

Thank God there's the NFL Red Zone on my 3-D TV, or I probably wouldn't watch football at all, with few instances, until the playoffs.

Blame Gene Smith for not taking a self imposed bowl ban in a down year, not for Pryor selling his own merchandise.

If you really want to talk about rebuilding a team:

Aww cute, the stump jumping yokel Chiefs fans knows how to post a picture.  When was the last time you guys won a playoff game?

/Here's a hint, it was still Clinton's first term
//That assumes Chiefs fans can count to two I guess...

Wait, two? I KNOW THIS ONE! What is the number of assaults done by Raider fans the last time we went to the playoffs in 2011?

Ken VeryBigLiar: HaywoodJablonski: So my loser pool should consist of nothing but Raiders, Bills and the occasional Jaguars

The Jets also deserve to be in heavy rotation for that list.

Or, if you actually live in Oakland, being forced to watch the Patriots and 49ers because your game got blacked out.
