Default Re: they showed al davis close up for mnf opener.

Part of the reason I liked LJ so much, was that he reminded me of Bettis in size & stature.

I agree with your assessment of the o-line though, if you've got a swiss-cheese o-line, you're stuck in the mud. Case in point: The 2003 Steelers, an injured Kendall Simmons & Marvel Smith ravaged the line, by the end of the year they were starting Alan Faneca at left tackle. Ah well..that season got them a high draft pick that ended up with Roethlisberger. Brady Quinn a Raider?

Brady Quinn a Raider? I hope not! That means we finished in the cellar . That doesn't mean I wouldn't love to see Quinn in silver and black .

I like Troy Smith from Ohio State too. I know he doesn't get much attention from the media or anyone else but, I like what I see in him. I think he is a winner. He has that... "something" that all winners have, whatever that is.

Check this out:

I remember during last year's offseason, there's a local radio show here, and one of the hosts had the scoop on the Randy Moss trade before anyone-anywhere had it, I'm talking like weeks before it happened. During THIS year's offseason, on the same show, the same host said that the Raiders were close to getting Daunte Culpepper (obviously before the Miami deal). I think DC & Moss would've had a significant impact on the Black Hole.

I hate Al Davis & The Raiders (for leaving), but I gotta admit:...Darth Raider's kinda cool.
