    Wait a minute... It's only $25 to enter that 1.5 million Week 5 fantasy league? Count me in!

    Now Gannon is getting in on the action and he's pissed:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/shutdo...134900013.html

    "They got this sign in front of the building that says: 'Commitment to excellence.' They ought to take it down," Gannon said. "It's false advertising right now. There's no commitment to excellence. There's a commitment to mediocrity right now. And that's the problem. You need to change the culture and the environment."

    Ouch. Gannon wants to see some new faces in the building and that the firing of Allen isn't nearly enough.

    "You need to bring in some people that are capable of rooting out the issues," Gannon said, "and it takes people that know the history of why they have not won. You need to bring in some people that have been there and done it. Then maybe things will change.

    "But it's not going to change when you keep replacing coaches, keep replacing quarterbacks and keep running different veteran free agents through the building. That's not how you rebuild an organization. And the thing that drives me crazy is that they spend millions and millions and millions of dollars on the payroll."

    Some have suggested that GM Reggie McKenzie — and not Allen — is the one who has been most responsible for the team being mired in the dregs of the league the past few seasons. Gannon didn't name McKenzie specifically but did not spare much and seemed to suggest that there were some folks in Oakland who were stealing paychecks.

    "There's people out in Oakland, in that building, players, coaches, front office, people in business, accounting: stealing! They ought to give the check back," Gannon said. "The product on the field is terrible. And when you lose like that, how can you go to the bank and cash the check? You should be embarrassed."

    Double ouch!

    The Jon Gruden rumors are underway, and Gannon has close ties to Gruden. Some have suggested that Gruden — if he were to come in and try to clean up the mess in Oakland — could even bring Gannon on as one of his assistant coaches. If that were to happen, expect a culture change back to the last era of Raiders glory. Gannon says that part needs to happen.

    "You're not winning because you have players and coaches and people in the building that have become comfortable with the process of losing. It's okay to lose out there, it's okay. It's not a big deal," he said. "In other places, it's simply not tolerated. And when it gets to the point where they don't tolerate it anymore, it's unacceptable, and we run people out of the building who haven't figured that out...and then bring in players who care, and players who work and players who aren't going to tolerate that, then you'll get the results you so long desire.

    "But they don't know how to do it and it drives me crazy."

    Face it DS, your team would have been absolutely destroyed had your garbage starters faced an even partially healthy defense. Don't get your thong waded over this game. I know your "almost win" seems real but your pathetic team is still utterly garbage. this game was just a mirage DS and you know it.
    So let me get this straight, the Broncos pull out a last minute win over a good Colts team and you make a thread claiming the Broncos are overrated. Meanwhile, the Chargers win a game in a similar fashion over a team riding a 10 game losing streak, and they're the greatest team in NFL history.

    Face it junior, had Carr completed that pass you would have been called away on an "emergency business trip" and you wouldn't have been seen around here for a month, just like when the Chargers choked against the Cards.

    What a close game, if the raiders would have won they would have given the divisional lead back to the Broncos.

    But at the end of the day... not much matters more than another raiders loss

    Screw that. I hope they suck forever.

    Wow! Didn't see the game, but it looks like your RIP cerimony (and a little firing or two) brought a little spark in the Raiders!

    I actually hope that Oakland gets a little more competitive within the division (but not too much!)

    I never thought someone's smack could suck so bad after a WIN but we shouldn't be surprised at your consistency. You probably told the Jets fans that they would've scored -24 points had you yaya yada yada. But if these excuses.. after a win... make you feel all better inside then go on and climb that mountain, little engine.

    Excuses. After a win.

    Carr needs a defense. All that money we have free this offseason better rebuild it the right way.
    good game dude, it was even tougher than i thought but at the end i still knew it would be tough. like i said in the off season, i don't like that you guys got carr, that kid is your future.
