Default I told you so...

I told it would be a HARD fought game! I thought the Raiders would pull ahead in the 3rd. But your Broncos are scrappers. Biggest difference. The Raiders DL man handling the Broncos OL and McFaddens 154+ yards. Personally, I believe the Raiders left too many points on the field. The Raiders O looks like they still trying to get their legs underneath them.

Raiders have a VERY tough game in Buffalo. Broncos have a winnable game vs the Bengals. See you guys in a couple weeks and we do this again in the black hole! Just win baby!

You've been a good guy the last week. Congrats to your team and thanks for talking real football when you've been here. Obviously, you've earned the right to talk some smack, now. Oakland can do things that are important for winning: running the ball and stopping the run. We'll see what they can do this year, I wouldn't be shocked if they finally make it to the postseason if they can clean up some things. Congrats.

Thanks for being humble. Raiders defensive penalties made it look closer than it was. We sucked.

Well McFadden's running was outstanding, what scares me is Campbel's 105 yards passing! Terrible!!!! But divisional games no matter what are usually hard fought.

I honestly think if it didn't downpour we would've won. The rain played right into your hands by making ti a game that was won on the ground.

Even if we had won that game I would've been pissed, just terrible all around.

Wait, are you saying that Mile Highs weather adversely affected the Broncos more than the Raiders. Uh, no.Might of well just say that if it were not for Denver's punt return, the Raiders would have won by a larger margin.

Rain favors running teams. It always has. Not sure what you're arguing here. Rain at Mile High in mild temperature isn't advantageous to the Broncos just because it's at Mile High.

We lost because we suck. We lost because Orton sucks. Rain or shine.

Ok, I guess I can give you that. Either way, I expect the next meeting to be also hard fought.

This is true. Of all people I'm the last to disagree with the statement "Orton sucks".

I was an Orton homer, but no more. Bring in the next guy. For every good throw or smart decision he simply ****s the bed and loses the game. Gah. Done.

Yoda - thanks for not being a douche, congrats on the win.

Congrats Yoda. I agree with SoCal, you have in fact been classy this last week. You have a lot to be excited about in pure talent, outside the QB position. Both teams left a ton of points on the field. It was one of the sloppiest 1st halves I can remember in a VERY long time. If we didn't have a similar problem with QB talent, I think we win this one on a small margin just because the Faid, in true Silver and Black fashion couldn't control their emotions, into the second half. As we both mentioned throughout the week, the turnovers and special teams were the ultimate deciding factor. Your squads raw power on both lines is scary. I hope you do well enough this year to not keep drafting as high as you have been able to for the last 5 years or so ;-) The last thing I want to see in Oakland is a decent QB. Kudo's to you as you did call it in many ways the way it ultimately turned out.

It's embarrassing when a Broncos fan is making excuses like this to a logical Raiders fan. You Sir, frequently represent the ultimate buffoon for any sports team fan.

Thanks, you have to respect the rivalry, without it football is boring. I still sting at times over the Floyd Little fumble!!!! I was just kid, but I remember. Miller looks like the real deal, he needs help.

Raiders have a pretty good team but there innefective passing offense and average pass defense will haunt them against real teams. Especially teams with stout run defenses. Raiders will have a shot at the division though.

I was thinking that too. Really forced our weaknesses against their strengths, and none of our strengths against their weaknesses.

Ya, the 105 yards passing is PATHETIC! That needs to be adressed!

I don't think either of these teams will do much this season. The Raiders have to run, their passing offense sucks. The Broncos have to pass, their running game sucks. So both offenses are pretty much 1 dimensional which you can get by over weaker teams but the better teams will be all over that.

Very sloppy game I might add. Not just from the rain but the amount of players getting personal fouls because they can't control their emotions was unreal. It got the point where you expected a flag on every play for 1 reason or another. I would have loved for the Broncos to win but honestly, even if they did, I would still say it was not a fun game to watch.

Both teams suck.

Neither team should be pulling their puds over last night's debacle.
