Beyond the Metrics: Commitment and Passion for Excellence

Damali Binta – Sep 21, 2013

It is early in the NFL 2013 season, and early patterns can be transformed to winning patterns, in my opinion. If you put too much weight on the numbers, you will not have faith that the Oakland Raiders can upset Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Many times in history, the opponent who most fans thought would not accomplish their goals were victorious inspite of the odds. Join us in believing that the Oakland Raiders can muster up a passion and commitment to excellence and upset the Broncos on their own territory,

So many variables have changed in the formula for achieving victory in the Oakland Raiders team. One thing is standard and fixed:  There is a hungry pursuit for a renewed commitment to excellence.

Yes, we look at the numbers, but we believe in those intangibles that can make a big difference in performance, and we count on the team having the wisdom, wits and willingness to do whatever it takes to win the game and defeat the Broncos.

I and others in the Raider Nation believe the Oakland Raiders can do it: WIN!
