If the Raiders lie down for the Broncos next week, they put themselves in a better draft position, and they screw the Chargers out of any chance at the AFC West. As a Chargers fan, with the obligatory Raiders hatred, it kills me to have to hope that they bring their A Game next week and catch a Broncos team looking ahead to the playoffs / Chargers.

So I ask you - is there any chance that this late in the season the Oakland Raiders will even bother to put together enough of a game to beat the Broncos?

I think the Raiders intentions will become clear if there's an announcement that Tuiasosopo is starting at QB again. Allegedly, the reason he only got a one week trial in favor of Collins was because Al Davis HATES the Jets and wanted to be sure to screw them out of the race for Reggie Bush. If they want to lie down for the Broncos, that's probably the first move they'd make.

Edit: Damn, Tuiasoposo is *so* close... Am I reading their roster page right that they have two of them on the roster? Brothers?

I don't know if they'll tank on purpose, but if they can't beat Cleveland at home the chances that they beat Denver on the road is just about nonexistant. Then again, maybe losing a home game to the Browns and getting blown out by the Jets proves they're not giving 100%.

Yes. Marques is the older brother. They both went to the UW, as did their sister Leslie who was a volleyball player. Their little brother Matt should be the current Husky QB, but the Mariners gave him a boatload of cash so he's playing baseball instead.

If the Raiders have a big effort in them, I'm afraid it would be against the Giants at home on New Years Eve rather than at Denver on X-Mas Eve. Kerry Collins would like nothing more than to screw Big Blue. Should the Raiders show up on X-Mas Eve, that could make it a potentially huge New Years Eve game between the Chargers and the Broncos, providing of course that San Diego finds a way to defeat Kansas City in K.C. in December, where the Chiefs are virtually invincible. However, should the Broncos and Chargers game be for the division title, there will be many people in the Pittsburgh region forgiving the Broncos for beating them in the AFC Title Game a few years ago, as the Chargers winning the division would knock out Pittsburgh, unless Jacksonville loses to both Houston and the Titans.

I for one would welcome a slip-up by Denver. I'd like to have that #2 seed. :-)

I can't see Al Davis wanting to give Mike Shanahan the time of day, let alone a win, myself.

Oh and, WHO DEY!

Sorry, Zim... but this whole discussion has proved to be totally irrelevant. If it makes you feel better, sleep with the knowledge that the Chiefs probably aren't going to get in either - they need Pittsburgh to lose to the Lions, which would be one of the biggest upsets in the history of mankind at this point considering how Detroit has played recently.

Agreed. As a Raider fan, I wish nothing but fiery death upon the Broncos. I'm much more in favor of the Chiefs or Chargers winning the division.

Thankfully, both the Chiefs and Chargers are out of the playoff picture (hey, I never said I LIKED the Chargers).
