Broncos 23, Raiders 3

Scoring

Den_Matt Prater 23-yard field goal, 11:57

Notes:

– Broncos take over on downs with 3:22 left. Going downstairs.

– Raiders take over at own 24 with 5:28 to play and 112 yards of total offense. You know what the fans had to say about that.

Russell runs 15 yards for a first down and gets some cheers. Then . . . false start, Erik Pears.

– Raiders take over at own 20 and go three-and-out, three incompletions, Russell getting more off target as game goes on. Afraid one last-ditch drive won’t do it here.

Raiders take over with 8:13 after forcing Denver’s first punt of the game. Boos greet Russell and the offense.

– Broncos take possession at the 49 and start the long process of running out the clock. They go three-and-out with two incomplete passes.

– Fights breaking out in the stands, fans led away in cuffs. They won’t have to watch. Raiders drive ends with Russell being sacked with Elvis Dumervill coming hard up the middle.

– Broncos drove 88-yards in 16 plays before settling for an 23-yard Prater field goal. The Raiders are giving way too much ground, doing well enough near the end zone to keep the score from getting even worse.

The 16-play drive took 8:08 off the clock, allowing the defense to stay on the field in the heat while Russell and the offense stay cold on the sideline.

Broncos have outrushed the Raiders 196-63 with 11:57 left in the game.

    Disagree SnB,

    Don’t trade DMac, just accept him for the “Reggie Bush” bust that he is. Just make Bush the primary back and get your gadget plays together for DMac. Screens, swing passes, slants out of the slot, and 5-10 carries per game.

  • jhill

    LOL SnB …

    Awww man!

    I feel you anger. I think I was over it after that first pass JRuss threw last week against KC. Like I said, you know it when you see it, and this aint it.

    At least I have my the Lakers to look forward to. This Al Davis experiment will not make it to the playoffs. It is what it is.

    I’m not deluded at all….he was traded by cleveland to Seattle not cut….you just don’t want to get punked out of that money you wasted on Russell’s worthless jersey
    ======================================================
    You have Raderitis! its a disease where one thinks they can win with other castoffs…once a castoff always a castoff.

    It doesn’t work brother! You are better off exhausting the Russell experiment this year. Frye and Gradkowsie wouldn’t even be in the league if not for the Raiders so don’t fool yourself.

    If Russell busts out, which looks like is going to happen…we will have to look at JP Losman or Rex Grossman. They had some success and they are both young enough where they could still play for 8 to 10 years!

  • YoungAmerican

    McFadden could be a more explosive Kevin Faulk-type player… if the playcalling was there. Run some screens to him, hit him out in the flat, split him wide, put him in the slot. Hell, he could be the kind of player that defenses have to adjust to.

    The thing is, we’ve been less than creative in our uses of him. And right now we’re stuck simplifying the playbook for Russell, so I doubt we’re going to see anything any time soon.

    Bulls&&&&& JHIll! And I mean that with all due respect! This guy DMAC is not explosive at all like Reggie Bush. He is an ordinary running back being paid a premier salary.

    Michael Bush can catch screens and slants out of the slot just as well as this big overpaid overhyped bust that DMAC is.

    I’ve seen enough. Cut him!

  • Crude Earl

    do you ever listen to anyone else????no I thought not…you’re a blow hard know it all….quit already find something else to do

  • Plunketthead

    Boldin is looking like a beast again.
    I bet JR could hit Boldin after Boldin knocks the cornerback down at the line of scrimmage.

  • Crude Earl

    Gannon was a wash out too

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    The offense is garbage.

    So is the defense! It looks just like last year. Exactly the same.

    John Marshall is a bust too!

  • MTraidernation

    i’ll tell you what, that rich gannon is a real prick. i can’t believe he’s spreading these lies and inaccuracies about jamarcus russell. what a jerk!! jamarcus is EASILY the best quarterback in the league and doesn’t need ANY advice. don’t change a thing!! get that bust in canton ready. he’s the real deal. rich gannon, you should be ashamed of yourself sir!!

    it’s actually not poor jamarcus’ fault. it’s the man upstairs. if jruss played for ANYONE besides the raiders, he’d be a decent QB. al davis is stubborn, senile, paranoid and completely unwilling to change. the raiders will NEVER win under davis. it’s impossible to play as much man to man as they do and expect consistent results. it’s not 1976 anymore. today’s player is bigger and faster, and 31 other offensive coordinators will exploit our defense. for christ sakes, KYLE ORTON shredded our defense today. we could have 11 all-pros on defense and run big al’s scheme AND STILL get embarrassed week in and week out. it’s like a power pitcher who throws nothing but fastballs. yeah, he’ll get some outs, but not the important ones.

    quit giving al davis your hard earned money!!! spend it on health insurance!!!

  • richard smith

    caint ya just die Al? please…..

    Al…..caint ya just die???

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    ARe you guys listening to this B.S on KSFO.

    Tell these guys to get prepared for a game for a change and stop with the doggone excuses!

  • richard smith

    save our Raiders – just die Al….

  • Charlie

    Schemes will always be part of the game. Sometimes you will be out guessed and sometimes you will out guess the opponent.

    The guessing usually evens out.
    We have changed out the coaches more than any team in the league over the last six years.
    Different coaches with the same results mean our players are not good enough.

    Teams that control the line of scrimmage execute better and win games. Why? Because they create time and space for the offense and they destroy time and space on defense.

    Guys like Warren, Carlisle, Green and Pears are castoffs and backups.

    Improve the line play and the wins will follow.

    Yeah, I feel ya. I know what I see to and its garbage.

    Of course, when you have as many 1st round busts/ordinary players….you gotta blame the coaching/OWNER.

    How can so many top picks be this bad?

  • JB

    Has anyone ever seen any emotion come from JaBeefRoll yet? He acts as though he’s just going through the motions. That speaks volumes to JR’s problems. He doesn’t perceive he has any problems. And, maybe he doesn’t. From where he’s sitting the world looks pretty good and as long as he doesn’t care what others think. Life’s great and all is well.

    So, if you are upset, that’s yours and my problem. JaBeefRoll could give a schit. His growth and level of play has validated this theory.

    Even when DMAC gets a screen…he can never turn his shoulders upfield and explode. Bush does a better job IMHO.

    I don’t know about DMAC….Maybe my vision is blurred with red right now because I had to watch this debacle with a broncos fan.

    Chris Johnson does not look like DMAC! Nor does Forte or even Reggie Bush. Just like Johnny Knox does not look like DHB!

    Schilens gets back next week. That man is the only hope!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    MTraidernation,

    I hear ya!

    Let’s see what happens with Schilens gets back.

    And tell Russell to GET COMFORTABLE with the receivers he’s got.

    And tell Cable to stop calling these freekn deep routes all the time!

    And play Javon Walker….DHB needs to sit!

    i hate when guys say kill al davis. are you a demon or sumtin ? anyway. im so thru believin in that qb. j .russ. 2 ay i have officially given up on dude. WHY DO SO MANY BLACK Q.BS JUST WANNA FUKK HOES & BUY JEWELRY AND PIT BULLS? why dnt they care bout football. please god!! give me a white boy.. any white boy …

  • djohnnyg

    This is a question for any of you that actually watch and analize the games…

    Can someone tell me with Seymour and Ellis on the line WHY WE STILL CAN’T STOP THE RUN???

    I am seriously befuddled. It seems like even if we switched uniforms with the Steelers we STILL COULDN’T STOP THE RUN.

    Thoughts please???

  • new englandraider

    this is my 1st post. i agree with you all about jruss dmac and dhb. they suck. right now. go look at peyton mannings #’s in his 1st19 starts. troy aikman was 0-15 his rookie year. steve walsh won only game. when russel gets rid of the ball quickly, his accuracy is a lot better. lets be patient raider nation, because with our tough schedule, they really should not be expected to win more than 6 games. I ENJOY READING ALL UR POSTS.

  • Plunketthead

    JR would be holding a clipboard for any other team. Remember we all thought Andrew was the bomb.
    Our players just suck. I bet money Cable has tried to open up the playbook and these guys cannot exucute anything.

  • richard smith

    tyrannosaurus Al is not the owner of the Raiders – he’s “majority” owner: wake up minority owners, turn him out. freddy kruger in drag….oozing sores all over his face….

    time to go Al – go make a horror film, starring you – time to die….hire John Gruden as coach, Rich Gannon as GM, fire everyone else…..
    caint ya just die Al??

  • doriangray

    and of course no emotion, but dat may be a good thing, u need yur q.b. to have a steel heart. at least one good thing bout russel he doesnt get ove hyped. but . man i wish he knew how to read a defense downfield. and d.mcfadden is still great. i just want u to understand that when defenses have no respect 4 yur passin. very hard to run. take cedric benson 4 example. people thought he was over. he can run know cus when u think of the bengals u think of passing .

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    JB,

    If Russell was in another franchise. I think he would be okay. The Raiders haven’t developed their own QB in over 30yrs. There is a reason why?

  • djohnnyg

    Again, please tell me why we can’t stop the run?

  • Dark Forces

    Next possible win is Chiefs at home.

  • djohnnyg

    Y can’t we stop the run..?

  • Plunketthead

    Look AT AZ
    SEconds away from the SB win and they cannot run the ball if they had to. Same with the Colts for the most part of several years. Cards have 10 yards rushing.

  • djohnnyg

    If I say Al Davis sucks first will a football guy tell me y we can’t stop run?

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Chris Johnson on KSFO saying the players have told the coaches about trying different looks and blitzing. The opponents have adjusted to the Raider man single-house safety.

    Al Davis needs to step aside and let Marshall do his job or Marshall needs to be fired!

    I need to get off this blog or die from laughter…..

    Bad day, but not a complete surprise.

    Raiders gameplan from the beginning of the year was to…

    1. Run the ball – A lot harder to do with Gallery out, plus Denver’s D has been playing great.

    2. Don’t turn the ball over – Raiders stayed in the 1st 2 games because they won the TO battle. They lost today and it showed on the scoreboard.

    3. Don’t fall too far behind – This team is not built to play catch-up.

    They failed at all 3 phases of the game today.

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

    I will be in Houston next week to watch the crap for myself next week. Hope they play better than today.

  • new englandraider

    JB,

    ************************
    I’ll buy that. Then why did we pick JR instead of A Petersen – a real quality RB? Why pick DMac when we needed quality linemen on both sides of the ball? Why Bey when we could have had a premier LT? Are we seeing a trend here? Looks like a lot of poor choices being made here and we all know by whom. The thing that is most disappointing to me is that there have been a number of rookie QB’s who’ve come out and are playing fairly well right now. We could have had any one of them based on our past draft positions.

    I’m ready to label JaBeefRoll a BUST and to move on in search of another leader. JR is NOT a leader and no matter what he does, he will never be a leader. It’s just not in his character.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    whew,. got dat off my chest. u know wuts funny? houston texans so up & down. they could lose to oakland. like 17 -14 . things have got to change. we really should trade for derek anderson from the browns. give em a 3rd rounder and hell somebody. cut javon walker now. he is useless. i wonder if we cut j russ can he clean up around the stadium ? ??

  • new englandraider

    its hard for either rb to get into a rhythm. a carry here, a carry there. bad play calling bad execution. i feelin the dude who said kobe and co. will cheer him up. go lakers.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I believe that the Raiders ARE NOT CAPABLE of developing young talent. Especially at the QB.

    Better start watching film on Rex Grossman and JP Losman….Sigh
