  1. Good win for the Raiders. The foundation is being laid for 2014 and beyond. Hopefully we can win 6 games or so and continue to build possitive momentum. This team is only 2-3 but easily could be 4-1.

    I’m a realist fan, My Raiders are a mess for sure but hopefully coming up. 50 years in the NFL and no Superbowls for the the Chargers. Al Davis at work there too as is was Al Davis that got the Spanos to buy the Chargers, Al knew more than we know.
    “Al Davis is one of the main reasons our family is in the NFL today. Al approached my dad (Alex Spanos) about getting involved in the NFL and was very helpful to us through the process. He had great insight into the league, both the product on the field and the business off the field. He saw the potential for growth. He was very much a visionary. Our family will always be grateful to Al for his friendship.

    “Al is also a big reason for the strong rivalry between the Raiders and the Chargers and its popularity among both teams’ fans. He personified the image and mystique of the Raiders, and that image has helped build the strength of our rivalries and the popularity of our game. There has been no one in the NFL like Al Davis.

    “The NFL and NFL fans everywhere – not just Raiders fans – owe Al Davis for helping to build the game we all love so much. He will be missed.”

  3. Pimp to Woodson, I’ve never liked teams he’s played for but always appreciated skills, talent, and success of that man – a master of his game, who can cheer against that?

  4. Congrats go out to C-Wood for still doing the damn thing. A congrats also goes out to DJ Hayden for his first INT.

    Ugly 2nd have offensively for the Silver and Black, but a win is a win, regardless if its pretty or not !

    Raider Nation !

  5. Way to go Charles. One of my favorite NFL players of all time and one of the classiest. of course I am a packer fan so I may be a little biased.

  6. It’s great to have him back where he belongs, such a damn shame he was gone for so long though.

  7. I’m really happy he tied the record and hope he breaks it. I was hoping he’d do this two years ago with the Packers.

  8. I’m proud it was back with the RAIDER NATION they balled they behinds off just gotta finish more stronger gotta stop letting teams rally back in the 4th other then that congrats Cwoodson . And TP2 I mean he’s getting better and better every weekend I LOVE IT.. Keep grinding OAKTOWN!!!
