Maybe in some respects it’s a blessing in disguise that I was born after the “good ol’ days” of the team back in the 70’s and early 80’s? When a lot of guys I talk to mention Stabler, Tooz, Plunkett, Branch, George Atkinson, and so on, I have little to add except “boy, that must have kicked ass!” because I wasn’t alive to remember anything before Bo Jackson.

Hopefully we’ll get back to...well at least winning more than two games.

In the late 60s and into the 70s, IMO the Raiders were one of the most exciting teams in pro ball to watch. Wide open offense. George Blanda was amazing coming in late in the game week after week to pull them out. I swear that when this 40+ old man trotted on the field in middle of the 4th quarter it must have psyched out the opposing defenses.

If you ever get a chance to see tapes of some of his 4th quarter exploits, you must do so.
