To the man who has saved Raider Nation.

To the man who is equal parts Tebow in his humility and love of God, and Aaron Rodgers in his gun-slinging, brass balls, rocket fueled arm.

To the man who has a bro-mance with Khalil Mack that an out of shape, awkward white guy can only dream of.

FOXSports- Police praised a football fan for saving the life of a woman who jumped from the third-level deck of the Oakland Raider’s home stadium by breaking her fall. The woman, who was not identified, was critically injured Sunday after plunging about 45 feet at O. co Coliseum. She jumped shortly after the Raiders’ 23-19 loss to the Tennessee Titans and as fans were filing out of the stadium. A good Samaritan who tried to break her fall was injured in the process, stadium officials said in a statement. ”He saved her life quite honestly, at his own expense,” Alameda County Sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson told the Oakland Tribune. ”This guy 100 percent saved her life. She’d be dead now.” Nelson said the woman went to a seating area that was covered by a tarp and appeared to be alone when she jumped. The man who was on the concourse level saw her and repeatedly shouted, ”don’t do it,” Nelson said. Nelson told KTVU-TV he lunged toward the woman as she dropped. He was knocked down and was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. The man’s name was not released. Nelson told the TV station he was a former Marine from Stockton and Raiders season ticket holder.

There are a few different things happening in my head as I read this story. First thing is I’m glad the lady and the guy will eventually be alright. Secondly how bad ass is this guy. Former marine so he’s served our country. Raiders season ticket holder so clearly a glutton for punishment. But he’s just there chilling out, hoping Janikowski doesn’t shank another easy chip shot field goal, and he looks up to see some crazy lady trying to kill herself. He instantly kicks back into marine mode and risks his own life to save this woman’s life. When he heals that is free shots and beejers in every bar in the Oakland area. Hell of a human being and Raider fan right there. Kinda makes you forget that the fans around him probably looted his pockets as he lay on the ground knocked out from saving the woman’s life, because most Raider fans are pieces of shit. We just won’t add that to the story.

But the Raiders once again let an easy one get by. I know they are missing a lot of players and are using an undrafted rookie QB but they could have taken this one without any problems. On offense they were ok, could have been a lot better. I liked that they used Marcel Reece a little more but I am one of many who thinks he should touch the ball many, many more times than he currently does. Far too great of a physical mismatch to not be in the games more. McGloin looked good and I can’t wait until Thursday when they will have McFadden, Jennings, and Pryor to add to the mix on offense. Yea I see what I just wrote. It sounds stupid but with those players you can add a few packages where you have no clue who will have the ball in their hands and confuse the fuck out of the Cowboys. The run D looked as good as it always does (which actually is really good) but their pass D was once again sickening. Blown plays everywhere and it didn’t help that Mike Jenkins got hurt.

Three loses by 4 points is a really hard pill to swallow as a fan. Score just one more touchdown in those games and the AFC West has three of the AFC playoff spots locked up and people are calling Reggie McKenzie a genius. With those loses and we are just the Raiders in the bottom of the AFC West as per usual.
