I’m starting to get a little worried for Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour.
“You can mark it down,” Seymour told a Cincinnati sports radio talk show Wednesday. “The Raiders will be in the playoffs.”
The Raiders — in the playoffs? Upon hearing this proclamation, even Al Davis reportedly rolled his eyes.
But hold your laughter, readers. BroncoTalk has learned — exclusively — that the radio hosts, mouths agape in stunned bewilderment, cut off Seymour before he could finish his statement! You see, Seymour had more to say; a few words were left off the end of that sentence, and those words are key.
Allow us to finish Seymour’s thoughts for him. Our thorough statistical analysis suggests the following were the most likely intended conclusions to his sentence:
“…when hell freezes over.”
“…after Tom Cable finally exclaims, ‘I’ve had it!‘ and knocks JaMarcus Russell out for the season.”
See? Now it all makes sense.
Seriously though, as long as J.R. is quarterbacking the Raiders, all Oakland fans can look forward to in the spring is a draft spot ridiculously close to their quarterback’s jersey number. I guarantee it.
