jq, Duck, and any other civil Raider fans I left out.

Nice game, offense looks smooth, I was especially suprised to see your passing game look that good. Thats all I can force myself to type...... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif

Sure glad it's only pre season.....Joe

Look who they were playing though! Not a real test.

I only caught the third quarter. Lots of turnovers, it seemed. Alexander was dropping a few balls. Looked pretty sloppy, but that's why they're all backups. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Red, You dont think so?...We'll see http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Joe - I mean Rison blew past your defense like they were standing still, it is pretty sad. (grin)

08-24-2000, 10:42 PM
How was Rison?

08-24-2000, 10:44 PM
Gman - He caught a short pass, made a couple good moves past a couple guys, turned on the speed and finished off a 40 yard run. This is the only play I saw with him on sportscenter.

That's why I'm picking the Raidas to FINALLY win the west. They have just as cooshy of a schedule as the Donx and they're more talented IMO. We gave them two players who will help them out in Gannon and Rison. I would have lived to have kept Gannon, but that's a point that's been discussed to death. If he goes down, things will not be so good for the Silver and Black. I could care less about Rison. I will say that all they need is to get a good year from him this year and he'll be a bargain, or maybe the word "steal" is a better word when talking about Rison.

espn has him with 2 catches for 49 yards. Apparently he could get 5 years in prison if found guilty of his latest crime.

08-24-2000, 10:46 PM
How many times does he slide before a judge finally says enough?

Anyone interested in listening to Holmgren's post game thoughts....

maybe after he gets out of prison(brock), he can play for XFL?
mightily amused:-)

Hey - BOTH halfs looked decent!

1st half stats:

Yards....Raiders 243, Seahawks 90
Rush.....Raiders 77, Seahawks 12
1st downs...Raiders 15, Seahawks 4

Seahawks 0 for 6 on 3rd down conversions

Don't tell me you haven't figured out that holmgren has mortgaged this season for next year. It's totally obvious.

Red, This year will be tough, but Holmy has a plan. I still think we are a competitive team in this division this year.

We are very thin, injuries could put us in the cellar of the afc west, If we stay healthy though, we will hang with ANY team in this division......Joe<BR>

08-24-2000, 11:48 PM
....except Raiders 2000

Raiders 20
Seahawks 00

I watched some of this game, and let me say I was impressed. The Faiduhs almost filled 1/4 of their stadium -- that's more than usual...congrats!

Andre Rison caught 2 for 49 yards
Sebastian Jano missed 2 FGs, 1 from 42 yards and then he missed a 62yarder (it was well short and wide left)

I belive they are vastly improved. If nothing else, they feel they can win. I look for them to give the AFC West more than they want http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/eek.gif

They did look swell.
