Raiders Coverage: Silver & Black Pride
The 49ers and Raiders meet up in their annual preseason "rivalry contest." It's kind of difficult to get wildly charged up about 49ers-Raiders in the preseason. It's all about the team's own positional battles so the rivalry lacks a certain something in that instance. And considering both teams have generally struggled for much of the last decade, it removes even more from the equation. Maybe moving into a stadium together will create more of an Oscar and Felix dynamic out of them. Who really knows.
We'll have some new open threads throughout the game as previous threads fill up.
