Good morning Broncos Country!

It's game day and for me, it's "get revenge on Jack Del Rio" day.  The man who put together the worst playoff defensive game plan in NFL history and was hired a day later by the Denver Broncos arch rival now must face the team he screwed over. I will be pining for a curb stomping all day long and will be disappointed by anything less.

The Oakland Raiders must lose this game by three touchdowns.
