Thanks to the "Bruising" running of Michael Bush, the lightening strike pass plays of Carson Palmer to rookie Darnarius Moore, the "Ferocious" quarterback feeding frenzy of Kamerion Wimbley and the defensive line, the Raiders ended a Thursday Night Football feast with first place in the AFC west fully bloating their belly.
The Oakland Raiders, injury plagued and all, showed nothing is going to stop their return to greatness this season. These are not your faithlessly led Art Shell/Lane Kiffin Raiders. The Raiders of 2011 are coach Hue Jackson's revival meeting Raiders, and their belief in their leader strengthens their belief in themselves. It really is a most beautiful fellowship to behold.
Michael Bush, you and your 242 yards from scrimmage, fourth most ever by a Raiders running back, are the banner under which all silver and black clad soldiers march today. You stood tall while leading a Raiders assault in enemy territory. More comrades would fall, but you did not let the team colors waver while keeping all eyes on the victory prize.
For courage in the line of silver and black duty, Michael Bush we salute you!
