Greetings Phinsiders. With our teams' upcoming matchup this Sunday, I have come from Silver and Black Pride to talk all things Raiders with you guys for this week. That's right, I'm here to explain:
- how our run D controlled Matt Forte and Arian Foster but couldn't control the Patriots run game (and why Reggie Bush may have a big day)
- how our patchwork, injury wrecked and inexperienced secondary continues to make plays every game when they need to
- the awesome, godlike legs of Shane Lechler and Sebastian Janikowski combined
- well...anything else Raider you care to ask, I'll do my best to answer and if I can't I'm sure others will. Just remember to rec this so it stays on top. Also, while trash talk comes with the territory of being a Raider fan, be original and funny cause we don't appreciate it otherwise.
Our two teams have been facing each other semi-regularly ever since the old AFL days, and while we've never had a rivalry that quite compares to some there certainly isn't much love lost between both sides. I myself haven't forgotten last year when you guys came and laid the smack down on our team at home, and we're hoping to return the favour this week.
One last question - the Dolphins have turned it around from a 0-7 start, and while this is nice and you look like a good team I wonder if fans are unhappy that you've pretty much removed yourselves from the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes (barring a trade up). Do you believe in Matt Moore as a long-term starter, or at least for another year? Or is it Win for Griffin, Flat for Matt or Bone for Jones? I personally would very much support the latter if I were a Dolphins fan and the boning involved some Miami beach girls.
