Ok.  The coach is in, and the expectations are high (relative to where they've been the last few years).


Anything less than 9 wins is not a success for the 2011 Raiders.

Regardless, he never really played in the NFL. He had no NFL credibility. Think of it like Obama before the election. Maybe he was good, maybe he wasn't. But he simply hadn't done enough at that level to warrant any credibility.

Harbaugh had over 26,000 yds passing, and 129 TD's in a 14 year NFL career. He was not spectacular but he was serviceable.

It gives him far more cred than Spurrier. Might make him a better coach too, who knows...

And he just led stanford to an incredible season.

I wonder if any of Mr. Davis detractors would care to pull back a bit in light of these recent accusations.  Despite one of his best results in years, It would appear Mr. Davis places principal above wins.

My brother is a big Raiders fan. He says being a Raiders fan is like being a Cubs fan. No matter how well things seem to be going, you're certain they'll screw it up, you just have to wait to find out how....

Can we include being a Sharks fan into that too?

DECATUR, AL —

Decatur Police are investigating an apparent drive-by shooting in the area of 2nd Street SW and Memorial Drive.  One of the people who called police to report it was Rolando McClain.  No one was hurt.

McClain is a former linebacker for the Alabama Crimson Tide, and was selected 8th in the NFL draft in 2010 to play for the Oakland Raiders.  He graduated from Decatur High School.

Police initially responded to the area at 6:36 p.m. Thursday, after receiving a report someone had been shot.  They could not find a victim.

At approximately 6:56 p.m. they received a call from McClain.  He met with officers on 6th Avenue SW and told them while he was driving on 2nd Street SW, a group of people standing on the corner of 2nd Street SW and 8th Avenue started shooting at his vehicle.  Officers inspected McClain's Chevrolet Tahoe, and saw where a bullet had struck the rear hatch.

Detectives and a crime scene technician came to the location where McClain was meeting with officers.  They processed his vehicle and recovered the bullet.  Detectives also interviewed the passengers in McClain's vehicle, and continue to investigate the case.

If you have any information about this case, please call Decatur Police at (256) 341-4660.  You can remain anonymous.
