Laurinitus should not be starting, Stephone Anthony is much, much better than him.
I disagree. The Raiders are an extremely good team that most pundits and publications picked to win the AFC West this season with a deep playoff run. They have talent at several positions on offense and most positions on defense. We stood up well but didn't get the job done. They were a great team today to find a way to win and go for two and win the game.

Especially when they mess up like today, it puts me in a grumpy mood and literally kills any motivation I have.

I Agee Oakland is pretty good team to overcome 145 in penalties and double digest deficit to win

I also think Oakland is a good team. I also agree with they found a way to win. They beat our D.

I'm saying this to be friendly - it's not worth it.
Football isn't worth putting anything in life on hold. You may need a break. Be sure to take time off, even if it's just tuning it out during the offseason.

Years ago, I had to stop investing myself emotionally into my teams and found other things to do. Suddenly my personal and professional life improved.

I look at football as a journey rather than a sprint. Try to enjoy the game but don't put it in front of life - this is how you will get perspective. Football will always be there when you return - your "life" on the other hand may not be so go live it, even if you have to do it without football.

Well said saint fan. Credit to the raiders for pulling a win from defeat, but this was a real hard game for all fans to swallow. Ive gone over top a couple times.
Really enjoy your post,and thoughts.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

I thought the game was a lot better than most people thought it was going to be.

The defence is young, they will learn.

Credit to Lutz for handling a lot of pressure on young shoulders and he nearly won us the game. That was a great effort from 61 yards out.

It seemed strange following the game on Game Pass and listening to the Saints Radio station without Hokie being on there. He would have had plenty to say about todays game, God bless him.

Anyway, we still have 15 more games to play, so think positive. The season isn't over just because we are 0-1. Also, the Panthers and the Falcons lost today.
