TNF Chargers vs Raiders

Recommended Posts

I don't understand all the hate some people have for what Mayock and Gruden are doing.  I think it's an awesome story how these two guys came together and are trying to revive one of the league's most historic franchises back into contention.

 

How can you not root for Mayock?  This is a guy who barely made it into the league as a player and couldn't make a career out of it.  He gets cut and is out of football for almost 20 years, working a regular job like the rest of us.  He busts his ass to get back into the game, first as an announcer and then lands a job as a player analyst.  He eventually parlays that into a GM position.  Talk about a dream coming true for most of us.

 

Then you have Gruden.  I never really liked the guy as a coach or as an announcer on MNF.  But it's awesome to see someone come back into coaching after a decade in the booth and have success when a lot of people doubted it could be done.

 

I think it's fantastic and I'm rooting for them to succeed.  They are totally bucking the antiquated system and conventional "wisdom" that runs most franchises.

Agree - I think it's an interesting story and I'll given them credit for making moves that most criticized.  Pete Carroll and John Schneider got similar hate early on - everyone trashed their 2010 - 2012 drafts that built their SB run teams.

 

I feel bad for their fans as they don't deserve to be losing their team.

Agree. Been one of the first to support what they did and are doing. 

 

It was smart imo. Could it have failed, of course. But they are trying to rebuild the right way. 

 

Dumb ass fans just think they know more...

What amazed me was on the Chargers’ final drive, Rivers had what...7-8 uncatchable balls in a row?    They even gave him a new set of downs after a defensive holding call on 4th down...and  he STILL couldn’t complete a pass.  

 

I think Rivers is close to done.

I think this is an over reaction.  They played on the road, on a short week, and just fired their OC.  Of course the offense is going to look bad.
