SAN JOSE - LaMont Jordan spent his last two seasons as the Raider that Raider fans loved to hate.
He was lazy and didn't run hard. He wasn't worth the money.
When he was benched in favor of Justin Fargas, many hailed it as Lane Kiffin's best decision of the 2007 season.
Jordan, however, still has a sense of humor.
"Don't ask me any questions like I'm a Raider," Jordan said Wednesday afternoon.
No need to, LaMont. You've won more than four games already, right?
"No comment," Jordan replied with a grin.
The Raiders cut Jordan after holding onto him in spite of having Justin Fargas, Michael Bush and drafting Darren McFadden.
When asked if he was surprised the Raiders were losing a lot, as they did in when he aw in Oakland, Jordan was understandably unsympathetic.
"I play for the Patriots," Jordan said. "I don't pay attention to anybody else's suffering."
Jordan hasn't taken shots at the Raiders like many players that leave the organization do. He didn't take the opportunity to jab the Raiders Tuesday, only calling the change to New England "different."
"Playing the Patriots for four years in New York and playing for them you kind of get an understanding of why the team has as many Super Bowl rings as it has," Jordan said. "And really that's all I'm going to say about that."
Injuries were a problem in each of Jordan's three seasons in Oakland and that hasn't changed with the Patriots.
Jordan missed eight games with a calf injury before returning Sunday to run four times for 18 yards in Seattle. He has 124 yards in 28 carries this season.
"I feel like before I got hurt I was starting to come into my own and then unfortunately the injury took place," Jordan said. "But if you know anything about teams that win in November and December, it's those teams that can run the ball."
Jordan talked about that as a Raider. He spoke of needing 10 wins to make the playoffs, but won only 10 games in three seasons with the Raiders.
The Raiders of this era are playing for pride by time November rolls around.
The oft-hated Jordan knows what to expect Sunday.
"I'm sure when I go into the Coliseum I'm going to hear a whole lot of boos," Jordan said. "But if hear those boos that means that obviously my teammates and I are out there doing something right."
