Re: “In Search of the Raiders Mystique

People (mainly sportswriters) like to point out that the Raiders have had disappointing seasons the last few years. It's true. But what they fail to mention is it was only a few years ago that the team was in the Superbowl after successive AFC West championships and AFC Championship Game appearances. Football like life is cyclic..sometimes up, sometimes down. The point is, it's not so much where you've been or where you are, but where you're going. I think the Raiders are going in the right direction and to quote SI Sportswriter Pat Kirwin "I spent a good amount of time alone with Al Davis, the owner and visionary of the Raiders organization. He watches every play of practice every day. When practice was over, he headed right inside for a workout and then to study the practice tapes. He knows things about every one of the players in uniform competing for spots on the '07 roster. He amazed me about the littlest details of a receiver's route running, the back pedal of a rookie corner, the stance and "get off" of a young defensive lineman." The Raider Mystic isnt dead just dormant for a few years. Long enough to let people bash and trash. But believe me when I say Al's drive to make the Raiders better will have this team back where it belongs among the other elite teams in the league.
