Interesting Raider Tidbits

Salary Facts
I recently found this site that has salary information on it. These are a few of the interesting facts that I observed.

Jerry Porter's 2005 cap hit was $2,694,746 while Randy Moss's cap hit was $2,437,130.

Charles Woodson had the highest cap hit in 2005 with $ 10,537,000 but Robert Gallery was second on the team with a cap hit of $ 5,464,496 but his base salary was only $325,000. Woodson was number 12 amongst all NFL players last season. Good Luck Green Bay!

Derrick Burgess had a cap hit of $1,455,000 or $90,937.50 per sack(16) which is pretty cheap when compared to Simeon Rice's cost of $764,348.57 per sack(14).

You can go back to 2000 so check it out and see what the players really make.

Mis-informed Media
I also found this comic on sportsline.com. This just goes to show that the media's perception of our franchise is still way off. Our current roster has less legal problems than almost all of the other teams in the NFL. Henry is where he belongs, Palmer is the one that doesn't fit in on Cinci's roster and there was no reason to bring Moss and Davis into that sketch. If I had any artisitic ability at all, I could make much better comics but I don't so you won't see any comics on this site anytime soon.

Fun Fact
Towards the end of this article, it mentions that Ronald Curry and Aaron Brooks are from the same town. It's pretty amazing when you consider it's not that big of a town. It's also interesting to note that Curry was a Quarterback as well.

Quote of the Week #2
"I'm a firm believer that all sports will eventually be global. Someday, we may have a quarterback from China named Yao Fling."
