– 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.

    BHP, not sure what happened to MBUSH 1 carry. In short we need to fire the whole team…..

  • priesttj

    Kirk, we have two DT’s that were drafted in the 1st rnd. The one that wasn’t even drafted is better than both of them. So what does that say about players drafted in the 1st rnd? Does it even matter?

  • priesttj

    We have another DT that wasn’t drafted at all and he looks better than any Dlineman in the entire draft>

    It doesn’t matter where you get them just get them………..period

  • armond

    priest- didnt see much of bush cuz we were down so early he was taken out. dmc fumbled tho i say he was down. he did juke the shiznit out of somebody and picked up the 1rst down. i know u dont think he has much wiggle but he did on that run. not 2 much to see but when u watch the replay u will wish u didnt. j russ looked better again. dude had 2 many drops from murhpy and higgins again. also that fast food binge mario had came back to BITE HIM IN THE AZZ!!!!! he looked hella slow. get back to your diet mo that shizz was workin for ya!!

  • Terrapin

    Priest – Murphy struggled mostly. DHB only caught 1 ball – had another thrown his way – db got to it before him – probably DHBs fault – DHB was streaking down field for a TD but Russell couldn’t connect b/c didn’t have time – blitzer …all accd’g to announcers. But Murphy really struggled. JLH was dropped a pass each Pre * and he dropped another crucial one today.

    Through all that mess Russell actually looked good believe it or not. He is really improving.

    Bush started but didn’t get many snaps – mostly DMC and he did his thing – if the oline didn’t get flagged to negate his runs.

    Defense …well dude, just brace yourself for when you actually do watch it. (pressure was non existent)

    This team will never win until the old geezer the stubborn know it all moron Al Davis retires or croaks. He continues to neglect both lines and drafts speed demons who could have been picked in later rounds. The entire league laughs at our picks year after damn year. This defense is one of the worst I have seena as a Raider fan since 71.I’m sick of Al’s bullshit tyrant mentality and his unpredictable strategies. JR should have never been the # 1 pick. They should have taken a lineman this year. The beat goes on and on.Anothet 4- 12 season on tap.Just keep losing baby!

  • armond

    also your boy bryant got a sack on brees only to have the d give up a 16 yard run the next play.

    i can’t believe how many missed tackles we had today,and most were by the LBs.also,the few times we did blitz our lbs broadcast it so bad even a high school QB would have recognized it.

    what i really liked about russell was how he handled the rush. he was calm but also effecient if not murphy/higgins. stood in the pocket but also fled the rush and moved away after holding the ball 2 long on the first sack. thats why the fumble aside from being a fumble didnt bother me 2 much. that happens but its how u handle the next few situations that says more about u. he did that well enuff for me. its good to see this cuz there will be times where he will face pressure all day and hes going to need make plays on his own which he did.

  • priesttj

    What? 1 touch?? what’s that all about??

    Somebodies got a hold card. Are we showing everything or are we playing possum?

  • priesttj

    Adios, this site sucks……….period

  • Kush

    NO PRESSURE ON THE QUARTERBACK. That is in my opinion our NUMBER 1 problem. Not stopping the run is number 2. If we could at least do one or the other, we could actually accomplish something in the AFC West.

    Unfortunately we suck at both. I’m disgusted at the Raiders. I still bleed Silver & Black, but today was flat out disgusting.

  • Nnamdi21

    Anyone SEE the game? Lotta 2nd, 3rd stringers on the D today. No excuses, should’ve been better but still…This unit doesn’t represent our starting unit week one. It better not anyway.

    Guys like Desmond Bryant saw lots of time. So did Gerard warren and it wasn’t great. Players like Morlon Greenwood saw time too an it wasn’t good.

    Sam Williams is still a terrible linebacker.

    Stan Routt needs to be let go or traded.

    Cornell Green is just awful.

  • lefty12

    i’m otta here-this is bullshit.catch you later tonight Priest.Possum!
    BTW,will i appreciate you guys and your FFL but right now people are trying to talk about the game and you know how screwed up this place is.could you please hold off on the FFL talk for a while?PLEASE.

    I am pissed!! I thought we were gonna loose this game but damn!!

  • Nnamdi21

    115. Odds are its going to stay a 4 man rush because Al’s alive…kind of…BUT maybe, just maybe we’re holding back on the blitzes till the season starts.

    Tyvon looks like he’s launched when he comes in…

    Never know but yeah, trading for a serious pass rushing DE wouldn’t hurt things…

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    Greg Ellis, CJ, and Nmamdi were the only guy’s on D to play halfway decent. Everyone else was just awful.

    Jamarcus looked good for the most part. He will learn from today to get the ball out a little quicker. After the D was just torched for 80 yards and we had two nice quick strikes, would have been a perfect time to run the ball. Bad play-call.

    Our WR’s were too concerned with the run-after-catch. Murphy’s first fumble and JLH’s drop were due to them thinking big play, before thinking make the catch, secure the ball and pick up the 1st. Saints WR’s will make a sliding catch and pick up the first, JLH just reached down and let it hit his forearms.

    its bad when the first string defense comes in after half supposedly rested against the other teams 2nd and 3rd string and get drove on like that.

    jamarcuss didnt look horrible but both lines are horrific this makes me want to puke.

    i think murphy will be a good player. it just goes to show we could of took monroe instead of dhb and still got murphy later.

    al davis is a piece of sh@t. i believe 75% of our defense couldnt even make another nfl team.

    since i live in san diego area it will be another long 16 weeks.

    post #108 im up for ffl if its a live draft.

  • sirblitzalot

    I was listening to Greg Papa interview Tom Cable, subsequent to the game, on the Raido. Cable stated that he told his guys that “This is not going to DEFINE us.” He reiterated that statement at least three times. Well, Tom, this ABSOLUTELY DOES DEFINE YOU! Actually, if you go to the thesaurus and look up the words Ineptitude, underachiever, loser, overrated, girls, stupid, caca, pp, and such.. you will find these are ALL synonyms for what “Defines” the Raiders, presently. Your job is to CHANGE THAT DEFINITION! We have to live with YOUR CONGLOMERATE PILE OF FAILURE! The whole damn team should walk the plank. “Raiders” Tha loco! The only thing you guys raid is the refrigerator!

    The starting front seven. There is not a quality player in the bunch. They are back-ups at best.

    It’s going to be a long season.

  • UP LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER

    why spend millions on a punter we should of spent that money on haynesworth.

    just watching hard knocks on hbo makes me sick REY M IS A STUD HE IS BETTER AS A ROOKIE THAN ALL OF OUR LB’S WE COULD OF TRADED UP 2 PICKS AND GOT HIM

    I HATE AL DAVIS MAN THIS IS GOING TO BE A LONG YEAR NUMBER 7 I FEEL LIKE IM DYING A SLOW PAINFUL DEATH

    I hate to burst you guys bubble but 1 draft pick really would not have made that much of a difference. Do you really think Raji would’ve made a difference out there? Stew on that for a moment ….

    I can tell you right now; DHB is making a difference on offense even if you don’t see it in *his* numbers yet.

  • DarthPirate

    Our defense sucks. I know it’s only preseason, but damn.

  • Terrapin

    El Dirty – I think Priest posted before that they were actually gunning for Rey but Cinci snagged him so they ended up trading down and taking MM. These things happen.

    Locomotive – Murphy cannot do what is being asked of DHB or at least not as well. I believe DHB will be better than Murphy when its all said and done.

    Why the obsession over Monroe when you got Henderson and maybe what will be a good RT in Barnes?

  • Terrapin

    That defensive performance was more than just one person. Rey can’t play RDE, SLB, DB all at once.

  • sirblitzalot

    THE AFC WEST BELONGS TO THE FN S.D. CHARGES, until somebody steps up and takes it away. It will not be this pile that will do that. Who does the picking around here? There are no “play-makers” on this squad! All the optimism in the world, as icing on a pile of crap, still smells the same.

    I watched the pathetic excuse people called a game. The only positive was the TD and I was on the toilet and missed it AAAARRRGGGHHH!
