Garcia asked to be released.

Sure would be nice to say "We should have" 2 years after the decisions are being made.
i was all for the Mike Bush drafting 2 years ago, I always thought he was a steal for a 3rd round pick.

Mike Bush is 1st round material, IMHO he is better than Mendenhall.That is just my thoughts and I think that a TE like Spaeth can be found anywhere in round 4 to 7.

again im no GM or HC but I always thought that Bush was a good fit for us.

The guy can run,he can block he can catch heck he can even throw the football.

also played some LB in college.

but they decided to go with a guy that Tomlin saw a lot during his season in Minnesota with the Vikings(Spaeth played for the UMinnesota)

I don't want to comment on the game because Raiders are as important to me as a boat filled with holes.
But I just want to ask: did all those complaining 'bout the field at HeinzField see that pathetic Oakland Colisseum???? A baseball field?

That explains it then.

I was rooting for the Raiders to upset the Bolts, s&b - I'm sorry it didn't work out.

Not only that, but it used to be a perfectly good stadium before the Raiders moved in and demanded that 15,000 new seats be built. They ruined it so badly that the Oakland A's are trying to move away. Not to mention most of the new seats on "Mount Davis" are at such a steep angle that you can barely see the field, and you can't see the outfield at all for baseball:

I thought they finally got that monkey off their backs, but......

It was a much better showing than I expected. They may win a game or two this year that no one gave them a chance at if they can keep playing like they did Monday night. Small steps last night to returning to being a good team, but steps none the less.

I agree.

The Raiders defense looked really good. They played a really basic scheme, but it worked well. Seymour was all over last night making plays.

There were times where Russell looked good, and there were times where he looked really bad. They need to get consistency out of him. I thought they got that the last few games of last season, if they can get that soon...the Raiders will surprise some people.

That's all I can hope for right now, but at least there is something to look forward to... for now.
