Raiders in PRIMETIME

Rejoice Raider Nation! The Raiders received two primetime games. One is opening weekend hosting the Chargers, wearing throwback uniforms. The Raiders wearing throwbacks should be interesting, considering the uniform has hardly been altered. Silver numbers on white jerseys?

The other game is at the amazing new stadium the Cowboys are moving into. If you haven’t taken a chance to look at this place, it is unbelievable. <url>http://stadium.dallascowboys.com/</url>

I wonder if Al Davis and Jerry Jones will sit in the same box together. Might be an interesting Thanksgiving gesture.

Considering how terrible the Raiders have been in primetime over the last few seasons, maybe you aren’t rejoicing. I can’t help but rejoice because finally I can care about a game on Thanksgiving.

I’ve heard a lot of people ask, "Why do the terrible Raiders get two primetime games?" They note the primetime games are also very high ratings games.

The reason, is because you are a Raider Hater or you are a member of the Raider Nation. It is black and white. The NFL keeps giving Raiders prime slots because you love or hate them, either way you probably tune in to see them kick ass or get their ass kicked. The ratings are dictating how they schedule. I think the Thanksgiving game could be a huge for ratings.Just maybe crushing the Chargers on Monday night will earn us the respect we have lost in the past six years.

  • "Natural runner" is pretty loaded term. Better "athlete" can be debated as well.

  • @TheSveed I'm sure, but 7 replacements is crazy. They don't do that many in wet/cold climates. Must be reason they are considering turf.

  • What is the deal with this field? 7 planned replacements & considering fake turf next year. In NorCal. Absurd. https://t.co/04LF6uUfj9
