Always Football Season

Sure, I'm excited about the Golden State Warriors unbelievable season.  And of course I'm still rocking and a rolling to the San Francisco Giants third championship in five years.  But never have I been this hyped in June about my Oakland Raiders.  

The silver and black, with Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and a defense that's being built to shut down opponents and go the distance. Can't wait to see that linebacking corps under Ken Norton, Jr.  

Tuesday, Day 1 of Mini-Camp. Rookie first round pick Amari Cooper of course gets the media focus.  But this team will definitely not be about one man or superstar; it will truly be a strength-in-numbers season.  Man down, next man up.

There's no room in the Bay Area for non-contenders. With the San Francisco 49ers veterans abandoning the team like there's a plague aboard the ship Santa Clara, I expect all bay area football eyes to be locked in on the silver & black in Oakland.  While one team is downsizing in talent, another is building upon a solid foundation. The Autumn Wind is a coming. Look out NFL.

Just Win Baby!
