I think they're righting the ship. They went 0-3 since Aaron Rodgers came back to run the table and get them in the playoffs.

Man after the Rams left I picked the Broncos as my AFC team but now that Gruden is back with the Raiders I think I'm going to have to switch to them as my AFC team. I love Gruden. I mean c'mon Chucky or Vance Joseph?? Not a hard decision. Of course the Vikings are numero uno though :govikes:

In his defense, he was given a #### OL to work with, and we know first hand what a difference that can make.

Mularky to me didn't use the talent he had
correctly...trying to keep Mariota from running
I can see through and look first and then run
for 50 or so yards when things break down
throughout the game
