It’s always fun to chuckle at the expense of an AFC West opponent. So long as Al Davis sits in Oakland’s big chair, Broncos fans can grab a bucket of popcorn and enjoy the show.
For those of you thinking that the Al Davis/Lane Kiffin drama from a couple of years ago was over, you would be wrong. Kiffin, now the USC coach, talked to ESPN.com and had some not so nice things to say about the Raiders organization. As far as winning goes while Davis is still there, Kiffin says it’s hard to do.
“It is almost impossible,” Kiffin said. “I don’t know why I didn’t listen, [because] so many people told me that. That’s why, if you ask [University of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian], he didn’t go. He had a chance to go. You’re just so far behind other clubs. You’re waiting for [Davis] to wake up and come to work at 2 o’clock in the afternoon to make decisions that the rest of the league is making at 6 o’clock in the morning. You’re still running videotapes over to the hotel so he can watch practice at night.” -Lane Kiffin (ESPN.com)
Al Davis may have said it best, “Just win, baby.” However, like winning can become a habit, so can losing.
