Old-Timers Rule

Kudos to the Oakland Raiders for an outstanding performance against the NY Jets, who, up until yesterday, had been on a scary hot streak. The Jets’ young sensation, Chad Pennignton, had a rough day, but I’ll be surprised if he’s not the super-star QB of the future.

In the meantime, all the Raiders have to do is put away two more games and the Vince Lombardi trophy will be back in RaiderLand where it belongs. Wouldn’t it be great to see these wonderful old-timers who are at the twilight of their brilliant careers—i.e., Gannon, Rice, Brown, Woodson, and Romanowski--add one more to their string of achievements.

Hats off to the Raider organization for picking up these guys and giving them a chance after more short-sighted teams had decided they were too old. Go Silver and Black!
