Forgotten Player of the Moment – BRIAN SIPE

BRIAN SIPE (by ED AGNER) Here’s a little secret I’ll clue you in on – the Raiders suck. Yes. Oh, yes. They do. My more-youthful days of wallowing in pain and misery are long-long-long-long-long gone, so delving into the particulars of the Raiders current suckitude doesn’t interest me at all.

Forgotten Player of the Moment – WILLIAM ANDREWS

William Andrews (by Ed Agner and Phil Rippa) ED: Dean threatened to put on his Tom Landry hat, go into his Randy White four-point stance and bore us to death with endless tales of The Doomsday Defense if we didn’t feature William Andrews as a Forgotten Player of the Moment.
