    Raider Steeler game pretty entertaining. could wind up 40-38, whoever has ball last.
    Unfortunately for Raiders, subbing Taylor Mays for injured Charles Woodson won’t work out too well.
    both offenses dominating, passing and running the ball.

      Just noticed the final actual score. Pretty close call.

    So many bottom feeders in NFL these days.
    9 teams start today with 2 Ws or less, including 3 of 4 teams Raiders have beaten so far.

    Here in Oakland I deal with hard core Raider fans all the time. I don’t care much one way or the other about the team, but damn are those fans committed. After the horrible embarrassments of the past 10 years, the current Raider team looks ok. Quality of play is way up, number of penalties appears to be way down. It’s sort of refreshing. Unfortunately, they’ll get their act together just before they move to another city.

    Meanwhile, the people in charge of the Santa Clara 49ers seem more interested in the upcoming super bowl than in any of their own games this season. Now they’re the Bay Area embarrassment. Painful to see.

      idk man from what I read Davis fils needs to come up with hella bread to get into a new stadium in LA, which he claims not to have.
      Oaktown not giving him the free land he wants and maybe more interested in helping A’s than Raiders to build something new.
      So many good things going on in Oakland, feel bad for fans of all teams there.

        well the nfl won’t do the Davis kid any favors, I suspect. If he can’t move to LA, maybe some other city will make a deal. Oakland’s still pissed off over the Mt. Davis debt they and the county have to pay down.

        As to the a’s, if Wolff/Fisher really wanted to make a new park work, they could do what the Giants did — get the land free, along with upgrades to the BART station/bridge, build a nice new park, and THEN gradually develop the area around it. With housing costs sky-rocketing a new neighborhood between the freeway and BART, but not right up against East Oakland, could work. It wouldn’t be Mission Bay, but it would fine. Problem is, Wolff/Fisher want guaranteed development revenue as part of the deal, up front. It took the Giants 15 years to cash in on the real estate they’ve been using as a parking lot. Now they’ll cash in big time. Difference? The Giants invested in the team in every way constantly over time (signing Bonds, Sabean, building the new park, etc. etc.). Wolff/Fisher have no such patience, no such interest in making their money by making Oakland a better place. eff em.

      Is it possible that Kap was only real problem all along?

    Xoot, spot on regarding your comments about the Raiders and A’s . . . The problem with both teams is that they both act like “carpetbaggers” and consequently, the city of Oakland do not trust them. Until both teams can embrace the city and show they are committed to staying there – the status quo will not change (except, that one or both teams will leave). What’s the quote?

    “Either learn to love thorns, or don’t accept any roses.”

    No, Atlanta’s defense is not very good. Zero sacks on Gabbert, and if not for the drops, the Niners would have had at least 14 more points. Every other NFC West defense is light years better than Atl.

    Gabbert had a nice game, but if he starts in Seattle, that’ll be a much more telling test. Hey, I hope he does good, but this game may be another outlier. Our biggest problem this year IS our schedule. 3rd toughest in the league.
