(1/6) > >>

Raider Frank:
All I have is, i am glad that we finally have a QB that looks like he cares, is excited about the opportunity and wants to learn and execute the game plan.

Flynn does not look like he cares nor shows any fire.

Wow Oscar, you're right!

Actually, I was planning to look up our season openers and see how we've done recently. Now that you reminded me, here we go...I just looked up our opening games back to 2005, the year we started doing the podcast.

2012: San Diego Chargers
L, 22-14

2011: @ Denver Broncos
W, 23-20


2010: @ Tennessee Titans
L, 38-13


2009: San Diego Chargers
L, 24-20


2008: Denver Broncos
L, 41-14


2007: Detroit Lions
L, 36-21


2006: San Diego Chargers
L, 27-0


2005: @ New England Patriots
L, 30-20


How much farther back would we have to go for a season opening win?

2002 - Seahawks @ Oakland     Raiders 31 - Seahawks 17   (that win made 3-in-a-row...we won openers in 2000 and 2001 also....under Gruden/Gannon.....our back-to-back-to-back AFC West Championship years)

Last opening game win before those? 1995, the Raiders 1st year back in Oakland from Los Angeles. That year we were 8-2 after the first ten games, then finished the season with 6 straight losses. That actually didn't get Mike White fired. But following up 7-9 the following season did.

Yeah, that's the same way I felt, and a lot of other people felt, after the Raiders lost in Atlanta. That was our away game last year, and we had a blast....scared the crap out of the Falcons. If it hadn't been for that 56 yard field goal their kicker made at the end, we would have won.
