Default Something happening in the Bay?

Consider it nostalgia, consider it morbid curiosity....but the Raiders could be making some waves in the NFL.

2nd year coach Lane Kiffin, 2nd year QB Jamarcus Russell, 1st round pick Darren McFadden, an explosive pickup in Javon Walker, a shut-down corner in DeAngelo Hall, not to mention the quiet addition of Edgerton Hartwell, and Emperor Palpatine (Al Davis) has the Raiders poised to make a comeback among the NFL's elite.

Or maybe I just finally did some homework on the "Black Hole" of the NFL, after bashing the living crap out of them amongst co-workers & friends, and I realized "heeeey....they suddenly got some impact players up there".

Or maybe I'm just drinkin the kool-aid that the rest of my peers have slipped me, after wearing the mantle of "Raider-Hater #1" around here.

But the question is: is it truly a "Commitment to Excellence?" or a "Commitment to excrement?"

Any team can acquire great talent. The Raiders just don't seem to know what to do with it.....although I feel confident saying Al Davis is 90% of their overall problem.

When Al Davis dies, the Raiders will win a championship. Until then, sit tight.

I think there's just something right with the world when the Raiders are winning.
