To this I say Boo, Hiss, Boo. The opportunity existed for them to chronicle the Dark Lord of the Sith Al Davis for a month and they passed it up? Come on, Al would be the greatest train wreck in football history. Off topic completely, but was watching Top Ten Named Games on NFL Network over the weekend. Isn't it any wonder that most of them involved in the old Oakland Raiders?
Epic fail on not getting the Raiders. That would be Must See TV. I think the NFL's network Top Ten is a great idea and done very well mainly for the fact that the old Raiders are crusty hardass old bastards who have entitlement issues. Yet, even as a Steeler fan, they give great sound bytes. I think the NFL's list system is a bit off when you have Joe Namath as number 100 of all time and a list that include some of today's players ahead of him. I like the Tampa Two defense, but there is no way hell any of them are above Broadway Joe that also includes members of the Raven's defense.

I fear you are forgetting the shitty hand that was dealt the Eagles by the God of late season scheduling. As it stands we've got just one game against a losing team (Redskins) and a shed load of travelling to 'look forward' to over the next six weeks.
