Oakland Raiders Nation Rejoices As Autumn Wind Leaves Winning Record in November

It's November and the Oakland Raiders have a winning record. They will go into their bye week with a winning record for the first time since 2002.

They will have a record of at least .500 until November 28th. They have an opportunity to be over .500 in December also.

This is great for Al Davis, Tom Cable and the coaching staff and the players as well. More importantly this is great for the members of the Raider Nation.

It hasn't been easy being a Raiders fan lately. Those who have stayed deserve to be applauded, those who are coming back will be received with high fives.

This fan base has gone through the worst losing stretch in the history of the NFL. They have struggled to sell out home games in Oakland during that stretch.

Can you blame them? It's like gong to watch your best friend or sibling who sucks at fighting, fight in a MMA match.

Nobody wants to see something they love get beat. Raider fans are passionate, and every year they have hope during the offseason only to be let down time and time again.

The Raiders are only 5-4, and are still a long ways away from finishing the season with a winning record or going to the playoffs.

For Raiders fans, having a 5-4 record at this point in the season is everything. The Raider Nation has only reached the five win mark three times since 2002 prior to this season.

When you go through that tough of a stretch, it's easy to lose the passion and interest that you once had for your team.

The last time we all had smiles on our faces late in a season was before the Super Bowl kicked off against the Bucanneers.

Most of us probably hosted Super Bowl parties and invited all of our friends.

Nothing worse than spending a lot of money on Super Bowl food and beverages for your friends only to watch your team get worked.

To make things worse, you get worke...
