Halftime: Raiders 7, 49ers 3

Scoring
Oak–Louis Murphy 24-yard pass from JaMarcus Russell (Sebastian Janikowski kicks PAT), 8:45

SF–FG Joe Nedney 21, 1:59

– Someone explain why Jeff Garcia came in with 1:59 left to go in the half. Here’s a perfect chance for Russell to run a two-minute drill in a game situation with developing wide receivers, and instead here comes Garcia, done it hundreds of times.

Garcia got the Raiders into 49ers territory before he overthrew Johnnie Lee Higgins while avoiding a rush and stepping up in the pocket, with Allen Rossum intercepting the pass.

– Joe Nedney capped a Coffee-fueled 76-yard drive with a 21-yard field goal, with Mike Singletary apparently really wanting to know his team can convert an extra point when it needs one.

Coffee gained 64 yards on nine carries on the drive, giving him 129 yards on 16 carries for the game. He opened it with a 35-yard bolt, and the Raiders didn’t rise up and stop him until Sam Williams and Tommy Kelly stopped him for a three-yard loss back to the 4-yard line.

– Russell saved a seemingly wasted drive with a 24-yard touchdown strike on third-and-23 against a blown 49ers coverage. It capped a seven-play 59-yard drive with 8:45 left in the half.

Nate Clements, the same guy who intercepted three passes during one practice and was shouting, “They can’t compete,” was responsible. He also was the one who let the Raiders get in position for the score wtih a desperation grab of Johnnie Lee Higgins’ jersey for a 22-yard penalty to the 13.

From there, the Cornell Green got an ineligible receiver downfield penalty, and Samson Satele was called for holding on an otherwise well-executed screen to Justin Fargas inside the 5.

    WOULD BE 14-3 IF NOT FOR JOHNNY LEE BITCH.

  • jhill

    You mean if it wasn’t for Garcia missing Miller and overthrowing JLH, we woudl be up 14-3

    i dont understand why with 1st and goal fargas was in there and not BUSH ?? WTF !!!

  • Terrapin

    Lefty12 – Who is Board? you were referring too…

    TScott has looked like a weak link for the 2nd straight week vs the run. Thats according to my eyes. He’s getting pushed off the ball, tossed aside or pancaked. Rarely has he forced the issue on his end.

    Garcia can’t throw the deep ball. You can tell. He’s way too hesitant. DHB would be useless with Garcia QB’ing so no need to double him which changes everything.

    chaz would have caught that

    Man, this blog sucks so badly. “Posting too fast” after 15 minutes of not posting! What a joke!

    Hmmmm, I have a feeling teams will be running straight at the right side of our D-line all year. Hey, at least we might have a top 5 pass D again like in 2006 because teams will only have to pass against us 15 times a game!

    Can’t have Scott playing on 1st and 2nd downs.

  • Terrapin

    Brown may just have taken Morrison’s job. He was everywhere. Timed his blitz perfectly again this week although this time the RB picked him up …still he stayed balanced and still got to the QB with pressure.

  • ctraidersfan

    all the haters need to go away, tired of reading all of your useless babble. Looking to see progress.

  • UP LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER

    KELLY AND ELLIS ARE DOING PRETTY O.K. WARREN AND SCOTT ARE STINKING UP THE JOINT

    Norco, Why do you bother watching if you hate everything about the team?

  • Norco Bob

    CT,..you are gay.

  • DarthPirate

    I liked the Touchdown Scoring Drive from Russell. I felt like he bounced back after a mediocre start and put in a good showing.

    I liked how Garcia was getting us down the field (until the interception). But he looked healthy

    Louis Murphy is a beast.

    I wish McFadden would have come out and claimed his job as the number 1 back.

    Fargas looks crappy.

    Michael Bush looks ok.

    Run defense SUCKS.

  • Norco Bob

    BITE IT FAIDERMIGHT.

  • lefty12

    Terrapin-Duane Board-Dline coach.i’m not disagreeing with you,just saying i heard him really talking the guy up.

  • drray

    just win baby! and get rid of this blog timer— who’s idea was this??

  • jhill

    Too bad Shaugnessy is hurt. Hopefully he can go next week so we can at least have a chance. Ellis, Richards, and Gunheim are LDE, so we just might be screwed there.

  • http://raidermight.com RaiderMight

    Nah, you’re doing a good job biting it. :)

  • Terrapin

    130yds given up in 1H of play. Thats waaay too much. I bet 3/4 of that came off the RDE area.

  • Norco Bob

    I SHOULD HAVE JT THE PRICKS JOB IM WAY BETTER.

  • ctraidersfan

    takes one to know one doesn’t it Bob, you whiner fan

  • armond

    damn should we cut garcia now? russell throws a td on 3rd and 22 garcia a int with higgins wide open. will the russell haters overreact or does garcia get the he needs more time excuse they wont give jrock?

  • ctraidersfan

    bob, i bet you are a big shanarat fan too

  • Norco Bob

    ME AND JT PARTY TOGETHER.

  • jhill

    I wonder what Clements has to say after this game?

  • Terrapin

    I hear you Lefty12. They have to see this. Once SF figured out they could manhandle via LT/LG they kept at it. Play after Play.

    The coaches have to see that weakness. So I’ll ignore what they say for now and see what they actually do. I think they are giving Scott every opportunity but its not looking good.

    For the record. I too had high hopes for TScott; but it looks like as of right now he’s still only a pass rusher.

  • jhill

    Garcia looked better than Favre did!

  • armond

    jerry is right russell should be in there for the 2 minute offense. we need better dts and get bey the ball

  • Norco Bob

    Thanx

    Mrs.brown-thanks.if you consider me a dumb poster i know i must be right.

  • Norco Bob

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!…WHAT RUN D!!!

  • http://raidermight.com RaiderMight

    Looks like the Niners are not interested in developing their players much. All they are doing is running in the second half. It will get them the yards, but this game is meaningless. There are more players on the team than the third string runningback.

    run defense is horrible

  • ctraidersfan

    i am not convinced, to much hating

    SF is playing like this is a real game…

    strategy wise, that is…

    RaiderMight-exactly!

  • Mistabrown

    Lefty, ok I get it!
    DHB didnt catch a ball but he was open & looks great!!!

    So if he was open why didnt Moses get him the ball ? My second time asking you this question….go ahead and answer me now..

  • armond

    talk about no respect for run defense. on 3rd and 7 in a preseason game they deicde to run it. thats stupid and disrespectful. they should try to develope their young qb, f the yards. it also says we they just wanna pound you.
