Random thoughts from the dark side


It is offiicialy a slow news week. The Oakland Raiders have the week off from their organized team activities. They will resume their preparations the following week.

  • The fans have lined up behind Al Davis’s quixotic quest to get JaMarcus Russell to return $9.55 million that he has already received. The optimism that the Raider Nation felt when he was selected first overall with LSU got completely turned inside out.

  • If the offense falters early, who will become the next scapegoat?
  • The smart money is on Darren McFadden. He has not come anywhere near being the player that he was expected to become when he was drafted in 2008.
  • An interesting turn sign of the times when headlines from an offseason work out centered around a top ten wide receiver pick actually caught the ball.
  • There has been talk that the Raiders will have a joint practice with the Dallas Cowboys before their preseason opener. That used to be a regular occurance.
  • Other than the selection of Jacoby Ford, it has been a very non-Al Davis offseason.

Hope you all had a safe and fun holiday weekend!
