  1. Why do you seem so bitter towards Osi? I feel like every article you write up, or comment you about him, you have some kind of sarcastic, snarky comment to add to it…

  2. Regarding the buffalo bills one liner. Is this the same Searcy who, rather than try to tackle Lynch, chickened out and let him walk into the end zone? That Searcy? So the next step for him would be what? Tackling running backs?

  3. As a life long raiders fan I’ve known that the media and websites like these will always hate on my team, they will never give credit when credit is due, will never write or talk about us unless its something negative. I’m used to it, but it still pises me off!! We were just 8-8 2yrs in a row on the verge of making playoffs if it wasn’t for Jason cambell getting hurt!! Were not as bad as this dumb website makes us seem. This website had the chiefs making playoffs last year for crying out loud!!
