Great teams find ways to win. The Raiders are not a great team, we just found a way to lose like we have for 3 straight seasons.

Laurinitus should not be starting, Stephone Anthony is much, much better than him.

No adjustments by the DC. It didn't take but 1/2 a game for Oakland to figure him out. It's not the players. Jim Scwarts( I'll use him because he's a 4-3 guy just one of many out there) would be able to take the same players we have and create a decent D. Allen changes Anthony from a MLB to an OLB because he don't think Anthony is the answer in the middle and brings in a slower aging veteran stunting any type of hope or impact Anthony could have. I didn't like the Anthony pick but he has grown some on me but to do what Allen done hurt him. Allen is a very unproven DC and for Payton to bring him in the first place wasn't the smartest move to begin with. He don't have anywhere the coaching ability as a Gregg Williams, he's the low man on the totum pole as far as DC's go.

I'm not sure if I can continue to be so heavily invested in the games every week. It just hasn't been worth putting other things in life on hold to make sure I don't miss the game.

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.
