I ******* loved when Bowe caught that pass he thought was a TD and ran right to the black hole to do his TD celebration. It got him a jersey full of beer, but those beers are like $10 so the joke was on that asshole! :D
I have to give a big shout out to our offensive line yesterday, especially Jon Asamoah. Giving up zero sacks to that defensive line is impressive, and Asamoah played VERY well against Seymour. He has quietly become our best offensive lineman this year, always grading out well in run and pass blocking.
the goal line stand was my favorite part of the game. it isn't often that a team that runs as well as the Raiders get kept out of the endzone on 4 consecutive plays from inside the 5 yard line. DJ was an absolute animal all day and earned his check with those 2 stops of Bush.
i never realized it until you guys just brought it up, i didn't hear Seymour's name called all day. Asamoah played very well indeed. he needs a nickname.
Thomas Jones is just playing out this season. his leadership skills will only go so far with the younger guys when he isn't able to produce.
edit: alright, nepg, you win. i can't have a "Suck 4 Luck sig and be playing for 1st place next Monday Night. being .500 right now puts us WAY out of the Luck sweepstakes.

The one thing that really has been annoying me is the lack of pass-rushing attempts they've been giving Justin Houston.
This game really was more of a statement about the Oakland Raiders and how ****** they are going to be.
Carson Palmer isn't going to be that bad for the rest of the season, but he'll probably be the same ol' Carson from his last few years in Cincinnati. He'll just throw the most random dumb INT's.
Beyond that, they may have enough talent collectively to make a playoff berth eventually....but I don't think there's enough there to make any noise once they get in. Being on vacation until later Saturday during the draft weekend is going to be a killer for them.
I'm still not sure why they haven't converted Studebaker to ILB. He has the size and skill-set to be a really good one. Very good in pass coverage, smart, reads plays...he just isn't much of a pass rusher. Put him on the inside next to DJ and good things would happen.
