(6-2) Teams Battle For AFC West
Thought the Chicago Cubs had something to prove? They at least had one thing going for them nationally that the Raiders lack; Lovableness. The Raiders are the Tony Montana of the NFL; the bad guy. Be it due to a former feisty owner in Al Davis, intimidating silver and black uniforms or their historic ruggedness of play on the field; the Raiders are the team that everyone loves to hate and many have feared. That is, everyone with the exception of the Raider Nation.
Raider Nation won't cower and hide from the bad guy label, we welcome it, we love it. It's what separates us and our team from the pack. We eat penalties and concussions for breakfast to nourish our will to win. And we can't wait to break bad on the Denver Broncos this weekend in our house. Go ahead, point and stare. We know you need teams and fans like us to make you feel good. But you're not good. So until Sunday night arrives, say goodnight to the bad guy!
"There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!"
Tony Montana: What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth. Even when I lie. So say good night to the bad guy! Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through! Better get outta his way!
