That’s It…That’s All you can Say?!
Quotations that were put out by 3 main Raider persons after the debacle on Sunday:
“We’ve just got to keep fighting,” Russell said. “It’s got to be a brighter day. At the end of that tunnel, there’s got to be a brighter light.”
“At some point, you’ve got to draw a line in the sand, put your foot down, and say, ‘That’s enough,’ you know?” said beleaguered coach Tom Cable
“We couldn’t stop anything,” Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour said. “That’s a bad feeling when you are out there and they are running whatever plays they want to. The third or fourth quarter I think they had their backups in the game and they were still doing whatever they wanted to offensively. There is no excuse for that and everybody has to look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘I have to do a better job.'”
Are you kidding me, really? This once proud organization has now gone through the worst 100 game stretch in NFL history, has not won more than 5 games since 2002, is showing now over a 2 year period the most inept offense that is imaginable, and your solace to the most devoted fans in the league is now we must keep fighting, to draw a line in the sand, to do a better job?
WE COULD HAVE TOLD YOU THAT AT THE END OF LAST YEAR, OR THE YEAR BEFORE, OR THE YEAR BEFORE THAT…ALL THE WAY BACK TO 2002!
This organization, from top down, has not shown one iota of any hope to its fans. There is no accountability at the owner level who hires “yes Al” into the organization instead of putting in people that would establish an identity and acquire talent that fits that identity. And please, the throw deep and let’s rush 4 and drop 7 every time is not an identity, it’s living in the past.
Scary part is…they win a game or 2 like they luckily did versus the KC Chiefs, the organization will say, see, we knew what we were doing. Which is further than the truth…
