Boss was a casualty of the old regime. Just cuz he's gon & talking stupid doesn't mean I'm not gonna acknowledge his skills & assets. Whether he'll thrive in k.c is another story & as far as lastyear, we were jinxed with the injury bug so we really didn't get chance to see wut all we had in him. All that said, his statement about greener pastures is a croc. Its obvious he in touch wit his softer side & being cut after just 1 season got his emotions stirred up. But its o.k cuz he gotta play us twice a year & he just put a bounty on his own head. All I know is I'm proud of my boys. The whole org 4 that matter. All boss did was give ambition to go out & dominate. All wr can do is take the wait & see approach, but my gut tells me were going to have a season 2 remember.

he is now a rival! I like m vick and p manning and so many other players, but when it comes down to playing my team or even talking ANYTHING bad or wrong or challenging afainst my team?, they are crap to me! sorry, just hard core, that's all!

Boss is just cryin cause he was cut after 1 year. He is a great player, but now he's a target twice a year now. Now he will really have something to cry about. The raiders have the ability to make it to a playoff spot providing they don't have injuries like last year.If they stay healthy then there is no reason they can't have a winning season in 2012. I have been a Raider fan since the Flores-Plunket days, seen some lean years, but i am not a fairweather fan.Looking forward to a winning season this year.The Silver and Black are back. So look out patriots,pitsburgh and any other team that gets in the way.Raider Nation is on the warpath and we don't take prisoners!

I think raider misterio o.g took wut I said wrong. I'm against him & it goes without saying how I feel bout my boys, but the fact still remains, the guy is a talent I'm this league. He is wut we're going ausberry is. I understand why we had to here ety's of him , routt, as well as wimbly. Like I said earlier, casualties of the old regime.(R.I.P) Al did whatever he thought he had to to give is a chance. Soo much so that he reached on a few FA salaries. Boss was 1 of them. All I'm saying is the gut really never had a chance to prove his worth to us. He was banged up all year. He's no longer on the team so I hope he tanks from now til the end of his career but thats just wishful thinking & doesn't make him an automatic bust cuz he play for up anymore. He said wut he said & its our job too make him eat his words. Raiders4life!!!

I think Boss is still one of the better TE's in the league no matter where he plays. Personally, I'm really not offended by what he said. Seriously. He was only on the team for 1 year so it's not like a 10 year veteran Raider is saying this. Also, I almost expect talk like this from former players.....Now that he plays for a new team, what is he going to say??? "I liked being in Oakland better"? LOL

I don't think Boss's numbers were bad last year because of his performance--his number just didn't get called that often in the huddle. Yeah, I saw him drop 1 or 2 passes he should have had but I believe he still had 28 receptions (?).....3rd on the team (?). I would have to really dig into some stats to be sure but I'm guessing his targets went way down when Carson came in (Carson likes to throw down field--not check down for 5 yards).

I definitely don't expect him to go to a new team and talk to the media about how great life was with his FORMER team.......especially when he's gone to KC. LOL.

But since he's not a Raider anymore.........I still hope he gets 'Blanked' twice a year and Miles Burris runs circles around him on the way to crippling the QB.

he was't used enough. thats it! he wasn't in the plans as planned. I think he could have made it had they used him like zack miller but I think we were really trying to break out the "hardly used" (wr's). he would have probably fitted nice this season, depending on how much we use (te's) this year. but anyways, "F" him!(lol) thats all I gotta say! he's not on our team. remember, he is now "the enemy". same goes for nnamdi! ANYBODY ELSE?
