I became a fan of the Oakland Raiders when I saw my first football game on TV. It was the 1976 AFC Championship game with the Raiders defeating the Steelers. I remember Curt Gowdy commenting about how cool Stabler was as he approached the line. I was hooked. Plus, at some point - possibly the next season - there was someone dressed up as Darth Vader in the stands and the hook sunk deeper. I've been a devoted fan ever since. I do have to point out that I'm not a blind fan ready to drink whatever Kool-Aid the team is serving and have had issues with the team over various things like the treatment of Marcus Allen, the move to Los Angeles, and recently, the signing of Javon Walker. I'll be as objective as a fan can be whenever I write the occassional article.

    The Raiders are running no where fast. If they can't run the football against the Broncos, things could get ugly...

    JaMarcus Russell has a some people convinced he's a bust, and if not a good season is shown he should be labeled a "bust." Take a look why this will not be a make or break season for the former first overall pick (2007), and why...

    Kirk Morrison needs to step it up this year for the Raiders, as this could be a make or break year for him going into his fifth year. Is he overrated or is he the real deal?

    The Raiders have hired three coaches on the offensive side of the ball that shouldn't go unnoticed, being that they are very experienced and have had success during their respectable coaching careers. Find out why that could make the Raiders offense go from mediocrity to dynamic:

    The Raiders secondary can be one of the best in the league this year. How?

    Is there an excuse left for Romo and the Cowboys as to why they can't win when it counts? No more excuses left:
