As the Silver and Black prepare to play the Bolts on Sunday, it is my observation from various internet boards that the majority of the Nation has given up on this season. 

The obvious reason being one Jamarcus Russell who for some inexplicable reason seems to think that what is happening isn't his fault.  I think I'll tell my supervisor that it isn't my fault the next time we pay a vendor twice.  You have got to be kidding me!  This is the very reason why so many have called for his benching; not taking responsibility for his actions. I always hoped that JR would get it together and lead the Raiders back to the playoffs and championship but, it would take nothing short of a miracle for him to be the one to do it.

The blame as usual can't be all be placed on JR.  It starts with Al and then works it way down.  However, Al is the architect or demolitionist of this team and every move whether good (Seymour) or bad (to many to mention) he is going to take the brunt of all the criticism. 

The Nation has always stuck by the team & while no one is jumping ship the question is; how much more can we take?
