How does that make sense? You play for the Broncos for a season, contend for a title then move to northern CA if you want to.

He's not smart

Why is Raider troll more fun to pick on than even KC troll?

From King's MMQB Tuesday Edition:

Quote:
Charles Woodson likes being back in Oakland, to be sure. But be careful about making his decision solely a sentimental one.

Woodson, the 36-year-old safety coming off an injury-plagued season in Green Bay, signed a one-year, $1.8 million deal with Oakland last week that included a $700,000 signing bonus. And it's the bonus that was the major difference between the offers he got from Oakland and Denver, Woodson said.

"It was all about getting something to sign,'' Woodson told SI.com. "That was it.''

Woodson said the emotion of returning to Oakland was a factor as well. But I got the feeling talking to him that if Denver believed he was worth the risk at 36 of staying healthy for the year, and backed that belief with a significant signing bonus, he'd be a Bronco today. "My visit there was awesome,'' said Woodson. "Meeting with John Elway and coach [John] Fox, I was very impressed.''

Because they are the most separated from reality. Charger fans are probably the most down to earth about their team - maybe even a little too pessimistic.

Chief fans are the next most ridiculous with most thinking their two win squad is just a QB and coach away from being in the Super Bowl. Their team actually has some decent players and Reid is a good coach who likes greasy food so he's a good match. So there is cause for optimism.

Raiders fans are all morons. They are in complete denial about how crappy their team is and has been for the past decade. If you talk to Raider fans, they'll tell you with a straight face that Darren Mcfadden is the best RB in the NFL. They'll tell you their problems were a result of Carson Palmer and now with "other guy" at QB they are going to the SB. Every year they believe they're going to the Super Bowl. If it wasn't for their appearance against the Buccs, Reality would have begun to set in after almost two decades of nothing since the 80's, but that one appearance and they're back in cloud land. Raider fans live in the past and close their eyes to reality.

Raider fans are the ones starting threads excited about the "beatdown" they're going to give Denver even when they're 3+ score underdogs.

Broncos weren't willing to give him that $700,000 signing bonus.

Well in their defense, they've beat us at home a few times. I still remember the game a few years ago where Orton gifted them a fumble and they won by a field goal and they were walking around like they won the division.

Woodson also received strong interest from the Denver Broncos but told the NFL Network that their offer wasn't strong enough, even though their roster is far superior to that of the rebuilding Raiders.

"I came into the talks with Denver knowing exactly what I wanted," he said. "Even though I want to win a championship, I still want to make the business part of it right. Everybody talks to me as if they want me to come in and do all of these things but they don't want to treat me as a guy that is going to do all of those things.

"Those talks of course broke down, didn't happen and I left Denver and I got here to Oakland. Ö You can either take what they give you or you can say, 'Nah, I'll do something different,' and that's the way it went," he said.

By far Champ's worst game in his career. They played both coverages in there but either way Champ got cooked. Coyer the man who doesn't know how to stop a leak from turning into a flood. Kennedy and Lynch jumped routes too thinking Champ had him.

Yeah. Still though, one of the best memories from that game was Al Wilson stopping Tyrone Wheatley on 4th down. What a hit!
