Greetings Raider fans, with special recognition to Texas Longhorn fans, students and alumni.  This article may sound absurd, but I don't care, I'm right.

Michael Huff had one tackle and one interception.  That one interception will put him back to the top of the depth chart.  Why, you ask?  Because it was the most memorable play of the game and gives Al Davis the excuse he's looking to prove naysayers wrong.  Huff showed great coverage ability, great speed, and basically bullied the ball away from Sam Hurd.

I happen to agree with everything Al Davis does because I'm not a fan, I'm a loyalist.  This is sports, not politics and I will support all moves especially starting Michael Huff this year.  I happen to think Huff is the best safety on the team and no, hell no that wasn't pass interference. It's the doggone referees trying to screw us again.

Remember, this is the guy who chased down Reggie Bush in the national championship.  By the way, Kerry Collins is terrible and Vince Young should be starting because last time I looked, Vince Young has a better winning % than most QBs.  I only bring that up because well, Kerry Collins sucks and Huff won that title with Young.

Back to the point. Huff will start and anyone who doesn't believe that probably never would've expected our best player for five years (Charles Woodson) would make a Pro Bowl after leaving when all you crybabies were saying he was no good.  Huff will start and if the Oakland Raiders blitz more, he will be going to the Pro Bowl over Ed, Troy, and Bob.

Thank you, and goodnight.
