Caption This!

Welcome back for another exciting adventure in Caption This! With the season upcoming, I didn't feel like making fun of the 49ers. I want to have some fun at somebody else's expense.

Now, if there's one thing that I'm pretty sure we can all agree on, it's that the Raiders are hilarious. The truth is, I wanted to use an image from the Chargers game. I wanted to show Norv Turner with a confused look on his face, or Philip Rivers with that squinty sort of jerky sort of ummm... you know... that... look.... Bottom line: Philip Rivers has a weird face, and I wanted to use it.

But the thing is, we played the Raiders a couple weeks ago, and the Raiders are hilarious. That's really all it comes down to. I look at the pictures from the Chargers game, and I think, "Yeah, I could use that one," or "Boy, does Philip Rivers's face look especially weird in that one." But I look at the pictures from the Raiders game, and I can't even hear my thinking over all the laughing that I'm thinking about doing, and then doing.

So it stops being a matter of "what game" to pull from, and more a matter of "which picture?"

And don't get me wrong - I wanted to use an image of Al Davis. I mean, my goodness does that guy resemble the cryptkeeper more and more every day. But this thread is for entertainment value only. Every child or domestic animal that I frighten by displaying a picture of Al Davis is another brick on my road to hell. So, I had to look elsewhere.

Then, there was the picture of Jason Campbell with a football squeezed firmly between his legs. Seriously, dude is handling the football like it's a thigh-master. Oh, how I would love to see the captions for that image....

But in the end, what epitomizes the state of the Raiders for the last five, ten, whatever years better than Tom Cable scratching his head in confusion? Enjoy. Use the comments for the captions, and rec' your favorites!

And for the love of God, do not look past the jump if there are small children or domestic animals around.
