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.

    After seeing the 1st quarter I guess it wasn’t Fargus’s fault.

  • Norco Bob

    Sincerely
    PriesTtj

  • Norco Bob

    I HAVE A FEELING THE CHARGERS ARE LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF, CANT WAIT TIL OPENER!!!

  • http://Raiders.com RaiderTW

    Eat that haters!!!1
    TD!!!!

  • Mistabrown

    Thank God SF forgot to cover Louis Murphy! At least Moses didnt over throw him by 7 yards.

  • Norco Bob

    SHOCKING RUSSELL COMPLETED A PASS VS THE NINERS BACK UPS. (BLOWN COVERAGE)

  • Florida Pete

    i would leave Russell in…

    he needs the practice…

    we already know what Garcia can’t do…

  • jhill

    I think Clements is a starter Bob! Stop it!

  • Mistabrown

    TW,
    Do you really get excited when a defense blows coverage and theres nobody within 10 yards of the WR? Great play by Moses right ?

    lmao

  • Terrapin

    Noticed from the sky cam …they doubled DHB floating coverage his way allowing JLH and Murphy to go 1on1. Murphy got open.

  • jhill

    Same guy who got toasted by JLH ????

    Big $ guy?

    Relax!

  • Terrapin

    Murphy was so wide open I dont think he knew where he was.

  • NoMoreFargas

    MURPHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Bishop916

    Jamarcus is high on syrup again.

  • Mistabrown

    Russell needs to play at least 2 FULL quarters every pre-season game. He looks like a rookie in his 3rd FKN year!

    No doubt Cable is going to pull him after the blown coverage TD to give him some confidence. Russell can resume his horrible practice play with a big grin on his mug!

  • jhill

    The guy just threw a TD to a the open guy. He looked off the starting S and came back to the open guy. Bash him for the bad plays, but you have to make an excuse for a good play?

    Is there really no comentary on the penalties and lack of push from the right side of the O line?

  • Ghost2Post

    great pass protection.

  • Tonio

    Why people come in to b & m when it works…and B & M more when it doesn’t work…blown coverage recognized by Russell .. accept it.

  • jhill

    Another big run off the edge.

  • Mistabrown

    Alex Smith pancaking Ellis is downright embarrassing.

  • lefty12

    keep posting Bob so we can see how big of a fan you are.the only question is -a fan of which team?

  • 24

    We are not stopping the run. this is a HUGE

  • 24

    concern.

  • Tonio

    Run D… Sucks

  • 24

    Norco – Why aren’t you at the game?

  • http://Raiders.com RaiderTW

    Mistabrown, Norco Bob, eat me. Around the hole like a doughnut.

  • Norco Bob

    I WONDER HOW LT WILL DO AGAINST THIS D…LOL

  • http://atm Raider O

    8 Carries for 100 yards!!!!

    We Need DTs, and I don’t want to hear this crap about how our DTs can play!!!!
    They Cant!!!

  • jhill

    7/11 78 yds 1 TD, no turnovers. Completions to 5 different WRs.

    Yeah, I can see why we need to get rid of him.

  • 24

    We don’t just need DT’s…we have always needed better DE’s who have more muscle to stop the run.

  • Tonio

    LT will lose… period

  • jhill

    Where is the big hitting Tyvon Branch?

    Where are the DEs?

    Has Alston made 1 play?

  • Raider kENN

    our run defense is sorry

  • Norco Bob

    THIS IS SOME REALLY TOUGH RUN D. LOL

  • Florida Pete

    i want to see a lot of Bush in the 2nd half…

  • lefty12

    Bob wonders how LT will do against our Def. we don’t know,but i’m sure you will be rooting him on.

  • 24

    Florida Pete – Don’t we all Pete…don’t we all.
