WORST SUPERBOWL EVER!!!!!!! Jon Gruden, a coach I adored for the previous 4 seasons, sinks us into our own black hole. It was also our first year without The Wiz and Bone Cusher Biekert. I'd rather not see us in the big one than see us make it there and get our @$$es handed to us like Gruden did.

I was excited to see us get there even though I didn't think we would especially with Gruden, Wisnewski, and Biekert gone. I really hated for Biekert and Wisnewski to miss the opportunity to play in the big one.
Yeah that was a dissappointment. I was nervous about that one especially since we had to face Gruden. 8 years later, however, I never thought I'd be asking "Will we ever make it there again?"

Can't help but remember the horrendous impact of Barrett Robbins "losing it", and the Raiders losing one of the top 50 players in the league, the night before the Superbowl. They simply couldn't run the ball without him, and became one-dimensional against a very good Bucs defense. Steelers may be in the same predicament without Pouncey.

i think that was one of the things i remember the most as well, "barrett robins missing!
but that gruden thing just got under my skin and i was hoping we would win somehow! oh, well, the thought was nice but? i don't ever see gruden making a comeback here. to see him cheering and laughing and celebrating may have put an end to the gruden era.
GO RAIDERS!!! GO HUE JACKSON! THIS MAN =)
