– The Raiders broke through when Holland scored from 43 yards away with the help of a couple of missed Saints tackles, as Garcia directed a four-play, 60-yard drive as the game descended into garbage time.

– Joey Harrington finished a 76yard drive in 13 plays with a 10-yard scoring pass to Skyler Green against Jerome Boyd.

New Orleans has 487 yards of total offense and a 45-0 lead.

– The Raiders possession ends on fourth-and-12 when Garcia throws incomplete to Murphy in theend zone.

  • El Dirty

    I was screaming RAJI from JAIL! THEN WHEN I FOUND OUT REY FELL TO 2nd ROUND I STOPPED BEATING MY BUNKIE FOR THE DHB PICK AND SCREAMED FOR REY! I HAVE NO COACHING EXPERIENCE BESIDES COACHING MY SONS FOOTBALL TEAM AND I KNEW THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WE NEED TO DRAFT! EVEN AN OT IN THE FIRST ROUND WOULD HAVE BEEN A GODSEND!

  • steveandblack

    this shyt is broken beyond repair

    and i’m not talking about wordpress

  • Richochet

    ugly.

    butt ugly.

    worse than butt ugly.

    almost nasty butt ugly.

  • El Dirty

    Hey Thec I have 11 players this year I need 1 more are you down?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLw Raider75

    Flush the toilet and move along.

    Record is still 0-0.

  • Terrapin

    Was it the heat? Cause gawddamn that team was flat today!

    At least Russell looked good. The rest looked like trash. DHB didn’t do much but at least he held onto the ball. The rest looked like trash.

    JLH is dropping waaaayyy too many balls out there and you all wonder why Murphy and DHB are getting the nod. Murphy was dropping like crazy today though. No, it can’t be the heat.

    That defense ..ooooohhhh that defense – good gawd! They couldn’t stop a turtle! Drew Brees is just too damn good and that defense is just too damn bad! They either suck against the run or suck against the pass – never good at both at the same time.

    HELP WANTED: Defensive End – pressure, preSSURE, PRESSURE! Giving these QBs all day to throw will surely get you killed. RDE needed ASAP! TScott who? Where’s the speed? Vanished!

  • Richochet

    What have I been saying all along?

    You all now know it wasn’t smack, it was a head’s up for you guys.

    This was the game that tells you how you look for SD on MNF.

    At this point, SD is drooling at the prospect.

    Now? Most teams sit most starters for game 4. Which means the Raiders have two weeks of this nasty taste in their mouths.

    I was dead on regarding Russell.
    Regarding your o line.
    Regarding your d line.
    Regarding Bey.
    Regarding that sorry rushing game that you all think is so “awesome”.

    Back to square one.

  • Terrapin

    And LB. They defense lacks serious attitude. HELP WANTED @ LB. Sht get MM out there – Somebody ANYBODY set the tone for that defense!

    Just too damn lethargic.

  • Bishop916

    word press is pretty damn bad tho…

  • dtrain

    This reminds me of the Falcons game last year. Totally embarrassing!!!! We left at halftime. Thank goodness it’s still pre-season!

  • Bishop916

    i can barely post > 1 every ten minutes

  • Bishop916

    maybe now it works, someone turned the spam filter off i hope,. anyways…

    raiders better be glad its preseason, and they shold realize that cuts need to happen now and get everyone the help they need. the season wont be any easier than what they got served today. it could get real bad right quick

  • Terrapin

    I blame that defense totally for this one – It just set off an avalanche – Offense came out looking good – then 14pts down – then everything goes down hill – offense cause their own problems but ask yourself just how long they were on the sidelines? – cold turkeys.

  • Florida Pete

    rack of schit…

    you made your point… congratulations…

    now fuqq off…

  • Terrapin

    And please stop the 3-4 schemes. They are just horrific. Especially horrific when you don’t bring a single blitzer!

  • raiderz4o8

    its jus a freakin preseason

  • raiderz4o8

    new orleans was playing like its a playoff game throwing every down

  • On the beach in Cancun

    Lets face some hard reality here. Our defense sucks in all areas and everyone is going to run on us all game long.

    Cable has to take responsibility, stop being a “yes-man” to Al Davis, and take charge, IF HE CAN. Maybe he just belongs in (Idaho or Iowa?) where he only won 30% of his games as a head coach.

    Al Davis is responsible for the drafting over the past few years and he has repeatedly passed on potentially good defensive linemen. I’m not crying about all picks, as we have picked up some good picks, but overall we have
    missed the opportunity. It all goes back to Al Davis. He must be living in the pass, he refuses to hire a General Manager to run the team, while he stays in the box with Jim Otto.

    The the bright side, at least we’ll be among the first five teams picking in the draft. Maybe we’ll go D-line and O-line.

    Everyone just needs to relax. It is only a preseason game. The defense will be just fine. I really think it will be in the top 5 this season.

  • Terrapin

    And please get rid of that damn DIRT!

  • raiderz4o8

    NO wont make the playoffs mark that down
    they know they are a good passing team, then why do they keep throwing isnt preseason about trying to get better at something your not good at like for example Running the ball

  • Bishop916

    so i’m thinking the crack is cheap out where you’re at Paine?

  • mantus

    Driving home, what in the hell was that? This team needs help, don’t even know where to start………..

  • raiderz4o8

    we know we can run but we are not good passing team and that is the reason we havent ran too much in preseason

  • armond

    terrapin u are right about the 3-4 bs. we dont have the personnel. dhb needs more thrown to him.the first slant was good but how a bout some screens or running him in motion off a trips set about 5 yards to the sideline just to get him in the groove. they dont seem to open things up for him enuff. that one throw russell made to jlh was high but catchable. that shouldve been heybey on that play. jlh cant adjust to any ball thrown around him unless its perfect and hes still iffy catching the ball. im more concerned with his hands than heybey.

  • raiderz4o8

    we can rush for 200+ yards everygame everybody knows that

  • Terrapin

    Cancun – I think you’re taking it a bit too far. That team came out flat on defense and you can tell. I wonder about the DCoordinator and the Talent on that side of the ball. NEEDED: SLB, MLB, RDE, DT

    I want a beast at RDE – A BEAST!

    Russell looked good and the offense INITIALLY looked good. Defense stayed on the field way too long – their own fault – keeping the O on the sidelines to go cold turkey.

  • http://Raiders.com RaiderTW

    Raider75, I owe you & VegasRaider an apology for the harsh words. I watched the rest of your video I agree with most of it. I’m not dogmatic. Thanks.

  • raiderz4o8

    ya defense didnt play good but you guys gotta give it sum time because we have a new D cordinator sometimes it takes till midseason for the defense to get on the same page

  • On the beach in Cancun

    post 25…Bishop916…I have to agree with you, he’s smoking, sniffing, injecting, drinking or all at the same time…he’s out in outer-space that’s for sure.

  • raiderz4o8

    we gotta keep gary russell he showed some nifty moves out there lets c what he does next week

    now fuqq off…

    ahh..the “toss out tons of crap before the game” but when it comes to backing up your words, you now just want to bow out??

    easy to predict with you.

    Hey, it’s a tempting offer, to be sure..but I think I’ll decline.

    You’re just one of many I’ve schooled.

    And as you know, after a long hot summer, school has just begun :)

  • Terrapin

    Armond – That no blitzing with the 3-4 scheme is the worst! You are right GET DHB THE BALL! They aren’t calling many plays for him except the deep stuff where he’s getting doubled.

    Hint though ….a lot of those end-arounds that Murphy is getting, are DHB plays in the regular season. Watch.

    JLH has dropped passes every single game this preseason. And they were all catchable.

  • On the beach in Cancun

    Raiderz408…sorry, but it has nothing to do with our defensive coordinator, it the quality of our defensive linemen and weak linebackers…we need a lot of help in those areas, as well as our offensive line.

  • armond

    the defense is at fault for draining the energy out this game and the stadium.no pass rush and no pressure put on the wrs. 2 much open space for them to catch and run. clearly the d is worse than last year. lbs are soft as hell. we need 2 new starters at lb next year. we better make a move to go after peppers as well.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLw Raider75

    No sweat TW.

  • Terrapin

    This defense needs ATTITUDE. PERIOD!

    Watch Baltimore’s defense. Watch any other good defense in the league and they all play with intensity and fire. They pump each other up. This defense? Nope.

  • On the beach in Cancun

    Remove all of our turnovers and penalties, and we can walk away with some positives on offense. On defense, we’re hurting and it’s hard to find any positives.

  • armond

    terp i know i saw dhb run those reverses at maryland. im waiting 2 see them now but maybe they dont wanna expose that yet. this team always seems to play theyre worst on a national stage.u know the worst part is our young o needs reps but they cant get it cuz they WONT get off the field. 3rd and 10 and still give up a 1rst. bryant sack for 8 yard loss on 1rst and give up a 16 yard run on 2nd down. terrible absolutely terrible!!

  • raiderz4o8

    players that played good in this game
    dez bryant
    gary russell

  • Florida Pete

    rack of schit…

    schooled??? are you kidding… i never predicted a great season for this team…

    all summer long i have asked who is going to stop the run…

    but the difference between me and you is that i am a raider fan and you are a cockroach…

    so… in the name of humanity… fuqq off !!!

    Dead on regarding Russell??

    in regards to what? I am interested to hear your take…

    also, the running game is fine… kind of hard to run the ball when you are down 14-0 …..

    But continue..

  • Kush

    When you don’t pressure the QB this is the result. You don’t have to be a genius to figure it out. If we can either stop the run OR pressure the QB we COULD POSSIBLY win our division.

    Unfortunately we can’t do either one well. It was just a glorified scrimmage but we stunk it up out there. If we play like that on opening night, our season is through.

    about to watch Chargers/Falcons to see what San Diego looks like.

    also why dont we fake a slant and go up top to heybey? they should make it a priority next week to get him the ball.cable blew it by passing too much early on. this was a time to see bush and dmc without fargas interferring and he kept passing. on the 3rd play that was a fumble wouldve been the time to get bush on a delay with that blitz coming around the corner. after that the d wussed out.
