How the Raiders’ obsession with success led to prolonged failure

Al Davis had a fairly simple mantra: just win baby. The Oakland Raiders did a lot of that from 2000-2002, culminating in a trip to the Super Bowl to face their former coach and architect of that early 2000s squad. As we all know, for Oakland, it didn’t go well…like at all.

But having won three straight division championships, there was understandably a belief that this team could maintain some level of success. They made it to the Super Bowl once, why couldn’t they do it again? Well, as it turned out there were quite a few reasons. Check out this episode of Collapse to relive how they fell from greatness.
