Thanks and woohoo, sorta.sldawgs wrote:SF I was out of town Thursday night and missed the game. Congrats on not having an 0-fer season. Didn't the Chiefs just beat the Broncos?
I get the distinct impression the Chiefs had a touch of a letdown after beating the Seahawks. STILL, nobody wants to lose to an 0-10 team.
These Raiders never struck me as an 0-fer team. They are not good, quite a far cry from it in fact. But they are also clearly not hapless, nor did the strike me as the type of team that "finds a way to lose." I'd say the current Jets are much more that team. And whereas the past four or five iterations of Raider teams didn't have a single top-100-in-the-NFL talent (don't even start with McFadden; his inclusion on such lists is an embarrassment to all), these Raiders might have two -- Carr and Mack.
I'm really positive about when given the very first "let's drive down and win this thing" opportunity of his career, Derek Carr cashed in. I'm less positive about his immediately afterwards attributing his success and the team's victory to the Almighty.
My thoughts on Alex Smith will probably never change; if you need a six-yard completion and the game is not on the line, I'd rather have Smith than anybody else. Otherwise ... less.
