NFL  > Oakland Raiders  > What winning ways is Al Davis talking about getting back to?
March 13, 2009, 03:00 PM
1966 thry 1985 one the best teams ever, the numbers are staggering, but that was 23 years ago.

Last 23
11 Losing seasons
8 seasons with more than 10 losses, current streak of 6 (*11 loss Seasons) League record
5 (8-8) seasons
2 (9-7) seasons
*(Detroit Lions have 2 more wins in the last 6 seasons)

That is 16 out of 23 seasons they failed to win more than they lost. Add (2) mediocre 9-7 years and that is 18 out of 23 they were lame to say the least.

No playoffs in those 18 seasons.

5 seasons with 10 win or more (5 good seasons in 23 that's about 1 good season for every 5 bad seasons).

Playoff Games last 23 Years; 12, that's right 12 which is more than a few teams

Playoff Wins: 6
Playoff Losses: 6

3- AFC Championship games (in 2 they only managed a field goal, you spend the entire season trying to get to this game and all you put up is a field goal)

Lost to Buffalo 51-3*
Lost to Baltimore 16-3 in Oakland
Won against Tenn. 41-21

*Howie Long later said he knew they lost the day before the game because of the cold weather.

The only Superbowl they were they were losing by 31 points in the 3rd quarter, eventally losing by 28.

When Al Davis says they will get back to winning ways, he can't possibly think the last 23 years were winning, oh wait we are talking about the biggest nutjob on the planet.
