Super Bowl Outcome Provides Special Treat for Raiders Fans


By Jerry McDonald – NFL Writer

Update: Heard Randy Moss at the podium on the radio. He was gracious and gave the Giants credit. A tape of Bill Belichick’s comments should be given to every aspiring coach at any level as an example of poor sportsmanship.
With its own team in shambles, Raider Nation got a special treat Sunday night.

Randy Moss scored what appeared to be the game-winning touchdown only to have it taken away on a miracle catch by someone named David Tyree and an unlikely escape by Eli Manning.

As the New York Giants finished off a 17-14 victory in the Super Bowl, noted poor sports Bill Belichick and Moss were already in the tunnel and headed toward the losing locker room, denied a history-making 19th victory.

Meanwhile, former Raiders line coach Mike Waufle, unlike Belichick one of the better guys you’ll ever meet, celebrated with Michael Strahan.

With the Patriots perhaps being the Raiders’ most hated opponent ever since Brady made his reputation in the playoffs in the snow, you can forget about 19-61 over the last five years for a few hours and realize that occasionally justice is served.

Manning bailed out a Giants defense which finally tired in the fourth quarter after harassing Brady all night.

With the help of a guy named “Tuck.”
