2012 Oakland Raiders - Promising Game 1
The Oakland Raiders 2013 season opened against the Indianapolis Colts with a promising bang. The silver and black offense and defense surprised many of us with a gallant effort against a formidable opponent. In the end it added up to a loss, but the team looked better than we'd remembered it being in 2012.
Looking back on that game I have to admit that I thought there was something special about this Raiders team. They fought, never quit, backed up one another and had a shot to win the game at the end. Quarterback Terelle Pryor looked fresh and fast as ever, wide receiver Denarius Moore continued to catch everything thrown his way, and of course a healthy D-Mac showed power while barreling his way into the end zone. The game was full of promise for the Silver & Black season.
Next season I will remember that nothing is promised in the NFL. You win or you lose, there is no in-between. I will take a sure win over a promising loss any day. Next season will be different. Time to cash in on some of those promising moments we saw this past season. I'll be there. Promise! Hopefully the Raiders will begin fulfilling their many promises, the main one being Just Win Baby.
