First quarter: Raiders 0, 49ers 0

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, August 22nd, 2009 at 5:50 pm in Oakland Raiders.

No scoring

Notes:

– Second-and-10, Glen Coffee gains 18 yards up to the 34 on second-and-10, with Hiram Eugene on the stop.

Drive started at the 4 and now the 49ers are at the 34 as the quarter ends.

Nnamdi Asomugha is already out. Justin Miller at left corner, Chris Johnson right corner and Routt in slot in nickel.

– Backed up at the 4, the Raiders give the 49ers some breathing room with neutral zone violation on unnamed player.

– Raiders squander Ricky Brown’s 46-yard interception return by coming up empty. They go for it on fourth-and-goal from the 4 (why not?) and Russell overthrows Louis Murphy.

On third-and-goal, they go empty backfield with snap under center and he misses Murphy.

On second down, Justin Fargas _ whose touchdowns are few and far between _ gains a yard.

– Brown, in early at middle linebacker for starter Kirk Morrison, intercepts a deflected pass intended for Josh Morgan and runs it 46 yards to the 7-yard line. He’ll get heat for letting Smith bring him down.

– Raiders second series nets a first down, but a bad end. Russell trips and falls on third-and-6 and it doesn’t matter because veteran RT Cornell Green didn’t line up on the line of scrimmage. Penalty declined, Raiders punt.

– The Raiders went to a 3-4 defense on a third-and-7 with Kelly the left “tackle,” Smith hits Vernon Davis wide open for 15 yards and a first down. Raiders forced punt when Smith missed Davis on third-and-6.

– First series a three-and-out dud. McFadden carries twice for a yard, Russell has Heyward-Bey open on out route, either timing off or Russell’s accuracy off. Incomplete.

    Norco – You suck man. Are you gonna act like this all year?

  • Florida Pete

    shut up Niner Bob…

  • Florida Pete

    that 49er jacket even makes Singletary look like a fruit…

  • Terrapin

    The run defense doesn’t suck. Its primarily one side thats being picked on. RDE TScott

    Keep in mind that subs are coming in. Not truly 1st team if you catch me.

  • Mistabrown

    Keep in mind Gore has been on the bench since the first series Terrapin.

  • jhill

    Thank goodness they called a play away from Trevor Scott and we were able to stack it up.

    We have GOT to do something about this!

  • lefty12

    what’s the score naysayers?

  • Mistabrown

    What does Alex Smith weigh about 110 lbs with his girdle on? And hes going to smash our DE like that?

    wow

  • Terrapin

    Virtually that entire drive was through LG/LT. They were getting push going left. TScott is not the answer at RDE. I’m sorry. This is the 2nd straight week I’m witnessing him get pushed back and not containing his side. He’s not only getting handled by the LT but the TE as well.

    We may sacrifice on the pass rush but you’ve got to play JRich there on 1st and 2nd downs.

  • lefty12

    heard Board interviewed before the game and he raved about Scott,so get used to him.

  • jhill

    It was a blind sided hit. Why are you really acting like it was some head up play?

    Ridiculous the reeeeeching that goes on.

  • drray

    first down RAIDERS!!!

  • Mistabrown

    I guess a 2 minute drill for MOSES in the pre-season wasnt a good idea eh Cable ?

  • Terrapin

    Garcia stinks. What the hell is he doing?

  • Norco Bob

    GARCIA!!!

  • lefty12

    Murphy and DHB are looking good,and that is what these practice games are for-to look at how players are progressing.

  • Norco Bob

    GARCIA WILL START OPENER!!!!!!

  • Norco Bob

    NICE CATCH HIGGINS YOU FAG.

  • Norco Bob

    JOHNNY LEE BITCH.

  • Mistabrown

    Lefty DHB has 0 catches.

    lol

  • Norco Bob

    AND YOU LOSERS WANT JOHNNY LEE BITCH TO START?…LOL

  • http://raidermight.com RaiderMight

    Yes, Garcia is the best QB.

  • Terrapin

    Garcia can’t throw the deep ball. You can tell. He’s just too hesitant. Playing him would require an entirely different game. DHB pick would be useless.

  • Mistabrown

    Terrapin,

    Russell cant throw a deep ball either. We are kinda screwed either way.

  • lefty12

    this is very telling-we can see what players are doing what,and we can see who actually roots for the team.

  • jhill

    Garcia is high with the last 2 throws, and it’s the WRs fault?

    That ball was 10 ft above JLH. Let J Russ make that throw, LOL!

  • lefty12

    He doesn’t have any catches,but he has been open and he affects the way the Def. is playing-but i suppose that is totally over your head.

    Garcia Sucks!!
    Bob Sucks!!!
    Pills suck!!!
    Bob’s life Sucks!!!

  • Mistabrown

    Solid post Lefty !

    So as a Raider all you to do 2 look good is run down the field open & change the defense! Oh ok

    And if he was open why didnt Moses get him the ball ?

  • Mistabrown

    Has Zach Miller caught a pass yet this pre-season?

  • http://atm Raider O

    Norco Beetch,

    What we want is for you to go pop enough pills till you can’t type or talk!!!

  • Mistabrown

    Lefty, you are in my top 5 dummest posters!

    You said DHB looks good. He didnt catch a pass. He is changing the defense ? And this is over my head ?

    lmao
