>> some of your older readers in football fans may remember harry houdini. i don't think harry houdini was in tighter jams than what colin was yesterday in some of those situations. he was houdinilike. >> why does he get this? does he think about this at night? >> i don't know. >> what am i going to say to the media tomorrow? >> they're very creative. >> look at this guy. an hour long coverage from candlestick park beginning at 4:30 and even jim harbaugh admits there's a little more on the line in this game. >> the last game in candlestick and we don't want to be the guys that screw up the last game in candlestick. you know, these players will come back 20, 25 years from now and they want to have a good memory of winning at candlestick. dennis allen announced the raiders will stick with matt mcgloin as the starting quarterback next week.
6:55 pm
mcgloin committed five of oakland's seven turnovers. kansas city blew them out 56-31 to fall to 4-10. the raiders may not have their quarterback of the future, but they appear to have found the answer at running back. rashad jennings had two more touchdowns yesterday, rushed close to 90 yards per game since taking over for darren mcfadden as oakland's lead back. >> i love it here. i really do love it here. i love the area here, this atmosphere. i fool like i'm a raider, but -- feel like i'm a raider, but for me there's a lot of football left. i don't make those final decisions. i continue to fight, continue to work hard. i wear a mouthpiece. it's called a pacifier because i like to shut and work. the warriors had a week they'd like to forget. golden state lost three of four, woke up this morning in ninth place in the western conference. according to marc jackson, the solution has nothing to do with xs and os. this team needs to play harder. >> i'm finding it that the guys in the suit and tie want it

6:57 pm
flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. the patriots tight end and the one- hand catch, you know upped literally, but the eagles -- one upped literally, but the eagles got them in minnesota. so anyway, despite the raiders unfortunate situation andre holmes is it a bright side. >> it's a developmental year for them. come on, they go for a couple of quarterbacks. >> in the nfl parody you can see how quickly a team can turn it around. look at the bright side. >> exciting game next monday, notice, look forward to that. >> on channel 5 -- though, look forward to that. >> on channel 5. >> we haven't given up on the raiders. don't worry. >> see you at 11:00. ,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,
