Run Run No More

In the wake of the Raiders' 20-0 shutout loss to the St. Louis Rams, here is a list of pertinent numbers to chew on.

66 - Number of times our QB's have been sacked for the season

25.3 - Going into the game on Sunday, the St. Louis defense gave up an average of 25.3 points per game.

13 - Days until the end of this season from hell.

7 - 7th straight loss of the season.

6 - Total combined TD passes of Walter (3) and Brooks (3) for the entire season.

5 - Turnovers committed by the Raiders on Sunday.

.238 - Winning percentage (15-48) compiled by the Raiders over the last 4 seasons.

In the wake of the Raiders' 20-0 shutout loss to the St. Louis Rams, here is a video interview of Al Davis: (click here)

"We'll get it straightened out," Davis said. "You can bet on that, (heck) yes. We've got things to do, and it's gonna be big, but we'll get it done. I want to win and I will win and we will win for the Raiders."

George "Run Run" Jones - R.I.P. (1929-2006)
The Raiders lost a valued and dear member of the family when George "Run Run" Jones passed away on Saturday at the age of 77. "Run Run" served as a spirited Raiders clubhouse assistant spanning 5 decades.

That .238 winning percentage over the past 4 years turns my stomach. We've gone from the best WP in all of sports to this.

On a positive because we have too much negative this year to consider.

Run-Run was a class act....I got to meet him several times...he would get together with the RaiderBoosterClubs and join us at our pic-nics....I believe he was originally EquipmentManager for the team....he was the old guy who happily ran out on the field to retreve the Kicking-Tee after the play was over...always positive with a happy smile....always eager to be with the fans...this is the type of people we have in our RaiderFamily and why I will be a family menber til the day I die...just like Run-Run....We will miss you...

Calico, if I'm not mistaken, you contributed to if so, do you have any idea if that site is only temporarily down or down for good. I know the main administrator(lordraider) tragically died in an accident.But it sounded as if there were others willing to step-up and continue the site. Any info you have, I would appreciate.

Thank you,

Back In Black - I don't know what happened to the Raider World site. The last I heard was that Assasin and/or Raiderman were going to take it over. I have moved on to to get my forum fix.
