Halftime: Jets 24, Raiders 0

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, October 25th, 2009 at 2:36 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Scoring

NYJ_Shonn Greene 8-yard run (Jay Feely kicks PAT), 5:51

NYJ_FG Feely 39 yards, :03

Notes:

– Feely’s 39-yard field goal capped a 76-yard drive with three seconds left in the half. You can bet the Jets will do nothing but run the ball in the second half _ a good test of the Raiders’ defensive will in a game that looks lost.

– Bruce Gradkowski’s first series went three-and-out. Incomplete down the right sideline to Louis Murphy, incomplete short to Gary Russell (dangerously close to a pick going the other way) and a short gain to Zach Miller short of the first down.

– Greene caps a 93-yard drive with an 8-yard run, one play after racing 26 yards with a pitch to the 8-yard line.

– With Russell still wearing his helmet and Bruce Gradkowski throwing passes and jogging the sideline, getitng loose, the Jets convert a third-and-5 pass to David Clowney (no pressure) for a first down.

– Raiders forced to punt after Russell throws late, over the middle on Jets blitz. If Dwight Lowery hadn’t slipped, it might have been interception No. 3. Raiders actually picked up blitz initially and gave Russell adequate time.

– Following 16-yard run on fake punt, Raiders force again force punt . . . this time he kicks it. Higgins fair catch at the 10-yard line.

    This is depressing.

    What the hell is so fundamentally wrong with our offensive plan and Russel? 3 turnovers on pass plays in the 1st quarter in a game that should be played as a low scoring game… jesus

  • elguapo2010

    raiders suck don key nuts

  • BornInOakland

    As I said on another thread, I’m so glad I have NFL Redzone. I am seeing just enough of the blacked out game to make me sick without throwing up.

  • neilb

    I’m out.Got to get up early in the morning…..don’t want to go to work and put pi$$ poor shift in.

  • Kush

    Jamarcus sucks. He gave the Jets 14 points.

  • flowbees

    good effort, jamarcus. looks like you really put in the time this week. now let’s watch this defense give up 400 yds rushing. haven’t we seen this before?

  • Bobby Bushay

    The NFL is looking into calling a “TURNOVER” a “JaMarcus”. Shall I continue to watch this “scrimmage”?

    Also, by the looks of the crowd (I’m in the Midwest), it looks as though the Raider Fans are trying to make a statement to the team.

    Don’t be surprised if Al gets to move again. Without a salary cap, though, if NFL becomes MLB, that may be one of only a handful to which a franchise can compete. Where would you rather have the team? Hate the message and don’t hate the messanger, but you’re giving Al ample ammunition to be heard and have a very legitimate arguement. Does the NFL need 4 California francises? Probably not.

  • UP LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER

    IF NOT FOR RUSSELL THIS GAME WOULD BE CLOSE OR WE WOULD BE LEADING.

    HE GAVE THEM 14 POINTS

    ANY OTHER QB WOULD HAVE SCORED AT LEAST TWICE THERE DEFENSE IS BANGED UP BAD.

    CABLE IS HORRIBLE ALSO. HE CALLS O.K. PLAY’S BUT FORGETS WHO HIS QB IS. ( I MEAN WAS ).

  • Kush

    Al Davis is calling the plays from his wheelchair. That’s why we abandoned the run.

  • Raider Fan in NYC

    I got home at 430 needless to say my fear of the game being over before I got to sit down to watch came true. Thanks Jamarcus, hope you like that money bc you didnt earn a cent of it.

  • manassamauler

    it takes until we’re on the verge of 2-5 for cable to bench russell. dude has 2 tds and 8 ints. wow. AD must REALLY like JR for cable to have stuck with him until the season is on the verge of being lost.

  • jwraider

    Crazy to think how much $$ that first half just cost the Raiders.

    A strong first half leading to a win and we start selling out games. Now it’s back to same ol same ol and 45K games.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Russell’s first play was a fumble leading to a Jets TD.
    Russell’s second drive ended in an interception which then led to a Jets TD.
    Russell’s third drive led to an interception.

    Nation, this guy just sucks the life out of our team.
    He just plain doesn’t know what he’s doing.

    Gradowski is average? Who the hell cares? Russell can’t reach that level.
    The man has no pocket awareness whatever!
    He could walk onto a train track see the training coming and STILL not know it’s about to hit him.

  • jhill

    Cmon Lefty ….

    Now I’m being a smartass?

    YOU disagreed with me that Cable should not be calling these passing plays by saying we are not playing HS football.

    I simply point out that Ryan is doing the exact same thing with Sanzhez and now I’m being a smartass?

    I point out Cable going deep right off the bat with Gradkowski, and following it up with another pass.

    Cable sucks man! I don’t know what else you need to see. The best thing we have beed doing all day is running with Fargas. It was the first quarter man, cmon!

    WTF is Cable calling all these pass plays? Why can’t we pound the ball like we did last week? Like the Jets are doing now?

  • manassamauler

    now cable puts gradkowski in, which is pointless because he cant be expected to led the raiders back. Then AD will say see look gradkowski didnt do anything.We’ll be seeing more of russell. Run the ball cable. raiders can’t come back anyway so just pound the ball in the second half

  • raidermarty

    Well let’s see what happens in the second half. Grad can’t do any worse can he???????

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Russell sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • PaleRaider

    Time to cut losses, suck it up, and draft a project QB in next year’s draft, round 3-4 in what promises to be a QB-rich draft. JaBlubber does not have the mental capacity to be an NFL QB, period, nor does he have the passion or drive to improve. The only reason why Al would stick with this loser, is because he put it up for the world to see on his circa 1970s overhead projector that “Russell will be a great player”.

  • manassamauler

    this whole game falls on russell.. he handed the game away by setting up 2 easy touchdowns in the first quarter. IT’s ALL on jamarcuss russell. 100%%%%%%%%

    how the hell can you pound the ball,use up clock when you are 21 points down?

    —————————————————–

    You JRuss hater are hilarious!

    Lefty! The first play of the game, we were not down 21 pts. The first play of the game, inside the 10 yd line, we called a pass play.

    What part of that don’t you understand. That fumble should have never happened because that play should have never been called!

    The 2nd INT should have never happened (WE WERE DOWN 7, NOT 21!). Cable calling a play that has Russell turning his back to that rush was either going to be a sack or a turnover!

    All that happened when the score was 0-0, or 7-0 with a defense playing out of it’s mind!

  • lefty12

    how the hell can you pound the ball,use up clock when you are 21 points down?our QB gave them 14 points in the first half of the 1st Qtr.even if you planned on running the ball,that changes everything.and at some point,you HAVE to pass the ball.

  • EMRaiders

    If Grad isn’t any better I say we put in Frye. Heck, why not. Let’s see if any of this QBs can actually play so we can start planning for next season.

  • manassamauler

    why would the raiders move? didnt work last time. raider stunk it up in LA. oakland is where they belong.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Our team isn’t as bad as it looks.
    Russell just plain sucks the life out of the team.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Al Davis sucks. The Raiders sucks. Believers are morons.

  • 1981raider

    im glad the coliseum is half empty who wants to watch the crap al puts on the field?And thomas howard calling ou fans to the game hahah lol sorry bud it takes more than one win to get excited about.Put a string of wins together first.And sapp looks like a genious he called it.

  • Plunketthead

    lol Bradshaw just called JR “Jamarcus canIgetahamburger Russell”.

  • djohnnyg

    Raiders are not playing well today.

    ——————————————————

    Yes it is!

    We made a QB change when it was 14-0 and early in the 2nd qtr. Don’t give me that shyt!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    A change of scenery will help? Yeh, like moving to Oakland helped? Johnny, you’re an idiot. It doesn’t matter where Al Davis goes, HE WILL SUCK. Get that through your disabled head.

  • http://www.cuntnation.com jupe

    lazy QB’s don’t make it in the NFL.

    there are no more guys like Stabler who could be at The Pop Inn at 6:00 am and still win.

    JR needs to put in some time extra time at work if he wants to ever make it as a player

  • djohnnyg

    Raiders will move. Maybe change of scenery will help.

  • http://www.myspace.com/imchino Darth Raider

    I think you guys are wasting your energy and emotions by complaining about our play. It is very clear now that our management is the sole reason why we will NEVER return to greatness. Al, get your sh*t and get out! :0)

  • YoungAmerican

    Honestly? I hope JaMarcus gets plenty of playing time for the rest of the season. If this is the effort he’s going to bring week-in, week-out, if this is the way he’s going to play, the Raiders organization has to know. That way after this season we can move on.

  • Crude Earl

    Well Real Madden ….you’re the only one on this blog to lick your own A$$!!!

  • elguapo2010

    Raiders can suck deez nutz!

  • PaleRaider

    I would much rather watch Grad than an overpaid, overweight primadonna like JaBlowme

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    JHill what the hell is so hard about this?!

    Russell’s FIRST play was a fumble leading to a TD.
    Russell’s second drive was an interception leading to a Jet’s TD.
    Russell’s third drive ended in an interception!

    HE SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF A TALENTED TEAM!!!

  • elguapo2010

    fumble-aya!fumble-rooski!

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    Wow that was a horrible fumble by jamarcus. Oh that wasn’t him oops.

  • lefty12

    you wanna be OCs make me laugh.in the past when we ALWAYS started the game by running 3 plays and not getting a 1st down,you complained about our lack of imagination on off.now you complain because we try a pass play and blame the coach because the QB has absolutely no awareness of what is happening around him.i never hated Russell until he kept dragging this team down.to bad you can’t see that part.

  • raidermarty

    Yeah Jupe it makes you appreciate Stabler that much more. He is definitely my favorite RAIDER of all time….

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

    Turnover machine. Stupid football.

  • EMRaiders

    Tried to do too much. Nice effort though, but same stupid mistakes lead to same stupid outcome.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    See? We have to run that west coast stuff to move the chains, even though you Davis a ss lickers don’t like it, and believe our team is built for the vertical game…LOL.

  • RaiderNationPA

    I’m tired of hearing that this is a talented team. If the Raiders are really as talented as everyone says, there is no way, no matter how bad a QB or scheme, we would get blown out and manhandled so frequently.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Now we’re playing conservative. Funny how they have Russell dropping back and looking deep, yet they’re finally using an effecient gameplan with gradkowski…

  • DarthPirate

    Nice grad. He avoided the rush and gained some yards. Woooo! A positive play!

  • Dark Forces

    Crabtree has more than twice as many recptions as DHB in one game.

  • raidermarty

    Way to go Grad!!!!
