Raider Notes:

Question: What do the Raiders have in common with a Slurpee?  Answer: 7-11

Huh?  Yesterday’s loss was the Raiders 11th this season breaking their own NFL record of seven consecutive seasons with 11 or more losses.

A roller coaster ride of a season that did give us some memorable moments.  Perhaps the most exciting game of the year was the “Bruce Almighty” win at Pittsburgh.  On the opposite end of the scale was the 38-0 drubbing at the hands of the NY Jets.  We learned that JaMarcus is a lazy overweight QB who prefers the jewelry store vs. the film room.  Once again we learned very little about Darrin McFadden.  Perhaps the most significant thing we learned is that unless things turn around Raider fans will no longer support the team by buying tickets to the game.  Attendance fell to low 1960’s levels, averaging a paltry 35,000 the last 4 home games.

The Raiders will have the #8 pick in next year’s NFL Draft  Their opponents for the 2010 season have been set.  Home games include San Diego, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Seattle, Indy, Houston, & Miami.  The Raiders will face the following teams on the road: San Diego, Denver, Kansas City, SF49ers, Pittsburgh, Arizona, Jacksonville, & Tennessee.

More analysis to come…
