What the HECK is wrong with the Raiders?

By

OK, gang, let's figure this out.  What exactly is wrong with the Raiders?  Whatever it is, it's been wrong for the last few years.  What is it, exactly?

In today's game, the Raiders had a terrific opportunity when Asomugha picked off a long pass.  OK.  The first down of that possession, Walter is sacked.  I forgot what happened on the second down, suffice to say "not much". On the third down, Walter ran the ball.  On the fourth down, they decided to punt. 

Why didn't they go for?  It looked to me like they were very close to the first down line, thanks to Walter.  Why didn't they try an onsides kick?  Why didn't they try a fake punt, like one of the TV commentators mentioned?  They just punted it away.

There's some kind of Life Lesson there.

Hey, thanks!  You can build your own South Park characters here or here

Last time I made one, you needed to do a "Print Screen" to save the final product.  Or use FastStone Capture

The toxic fumes from the fans' 'black & silver' faces are reaching the sidelines and the coaching booth. As long as Al Davis is around, crazy decisions will be made. GO CHARGERS!

I'm not sure what is wrong with them, but I'm glad the 49ers won ;)
