Tell your garden variety Raiders fan on Sept. 9 their team would be 6-6 and a game behind the Kansas City Chiefs with four games to play and there would have been toasts all around at the next Coliseum tailgate
Who am I kidding?
There are no garden variety Raiders fans. They’re different than any other fan base. And they’d be having toasts anyway.
But they know their team, and chances are they would have felt good about 6-6.
Yet NFL seasons have a way of creating their own story lines, and the Raiders are limping home with back-to-back 31-point road whippings against the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs.
