First quarter: Bengals 7, Raiders 0

Scoring

Cin_Carson Palmer 1-yard run (Shayne Graham kicks PAT), 5:32
Notes:

– Bengals killing Raiders when they blitz _ Palmer hits Andre Caldwell for 17 vs. Tyvon Branch, then Chad Ochocinco for 15 more vs. Nnamdi Asomugha with Branch blitzing.

–Raiders punt on first possession from own 40, Gradkowski misses Louis Murphy on third-and-5 over deep middle.

_ Abysmal first drive for Raiders. Bengals drive 78 yards in 14 plays, recovering from terrible down and distance.

Voice from Bengals coaches box: “That was a great drive, but it was a (B.S.) drive. Chad Ochocinco (2 catches, 42 yards), calls the booth. Coach tells him to calm down, quit waving at corners to come up and cover him.

Palmer 5-for-6, 91 yards in drive. Hits Bernard Scott on 23-yard screen, Ochocinco on 32-yard pass.

Richard Seymour out with a back injury on drive.

    I’m yet to see Gradkowski thread a needle. He’s only dinking the ball the same way Russell could have if they’d give him such plays. We’re moving the chains with a conservative offense, NOT because of the qb change. Give Russell that same script of plays, and we’re in the end zone.

    ===================================================

    Grad – 1 TD 5 possessions
    Russell – 2 TD in 9 games

    MR – Do you make this shyt up as you go along?

  • DownTheBayMOG

    “DowntheballMOG – Jamarcus couldn’t even get a pass to the running backs because he threw too hard and was inaccurate. With Gradkowski, he can at least make an easy pass and keep the ball moving.”

    How manyn were dropped? Just askin?

    Mr. Davis drafted Black Ryan Leaf…..

    Don’t forget that!

    That old guy keeps drafting people not capable of the job

    Hackett may not want to coach BRL, but BRL did not endear himself by coming in outta shape…. Does BRL even know the playbook yet?

    Yeah D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s the problem. Hackett would never call those plays because his goal was to get HIS GUY in there. That’s it.

    HAHAHAHA. JLH ran right where I thought he would. What a puss…….NEXTTTTTTTTTT

    LMAO..you’re such a waffling sniveling little girl, aren’t you?
    First you hate Russell…
    Then the Raiders beat KC, and you brag how your Mom ordered you your XS Russell jersey.
    You then announced to all “Picking it up this Friday”
    On Friday you announced “going to go get my jersey now.”
    Raiders then proceed to suck, courtesy of Russell playing like total crap, and you waffle back to hating Russell, first denying you ever stated you were buying a jersey, then admitting you LIED and that ‘I was just kidding”.

    NOW…you’re back on hanging on Russell’s sac, because, like you he’s a woeful shadow of a man?

    pay attention, moron.
    The reason Grab gets different plays is BECAUSE HE LEARNED THE WHOLE PLAYBOOK.
    I know, I know..hard for you to grasp.

  • Thec07

    Mr. Davis is truly inept. How many of you can do 5 jobs, let alone at 80 years of age….

  • DownTheBayMOG

    Hackett may not want to coach BRL, but BRL did not endear himself by coming in outta shape…. Does BRL even know the playbook yet?

    He know it and with the proper coaching, could be light years ahead of where he is right now. Thanks to Hack, all of his progress from last season has gone kaput- how do you explain that? 90 QB rating over the last 6 games and now this?

  • 24

    I think there were options for JR to dink and dunk but hes too stupid to get the ball to the right people or do it accurately.

  • kidseven

    Ah, the ol’ Hackett conspiracy theory…is that more likely than Jamarcus is an inaccurate passer?

  • Coach_034

    Russel would never have got the offense in position to spike….fact

  • Chaos

    WOW. Here comes JANO

  • raidermarty

    A McFadden sighting

  • DownTheBayMOG

    No, it’s personal between those guys. Hackett is a hater–bags on RUssell’s clothes, haircut things that a coach should not even pay attention to- the guy is a turd-

  • 24

    Great game management by Gradkowski to get the team into field goal position.

    ======================================================
    That is the problem. I am still astonished that a QB who can’t read defenses and is inaccurate could even become a 1st overall pick with all the scrutiny, media and scouting resources.

    Its an embarrassemnt to the franchise

  • Thec07

    JRUSS cut him… Grad light years ahead of BRL…..

  • 24

    Regardless of anything…Gradkowski looks better and we’re playing better. In the end, thats all that really matters because winning is the only thing that matters.

  • AbusedByAl

    we scored a TG??

  • 24

    Of course…Janikowski misses.

  • DownTheBayMOG

    I think there were options for JR to dink and dunk but hes too stupid to get the ball to the right people or do it accurately

    You mean like he was dinking and dunking before he got yanked against the Chiefs? Yeah right. The kid has been set up to fail this year, just face it.

  • 24

    Funny how Janikowski was great when we sucked and now he sucks while we’re better…ironic?

  • Chaos

    Sh*t….Thats ok. We get the ball to start the 2nd half with a little confidence….

  • raidermarty

    Damn Seabass…..

  • DownTheBayMOG

    JRUSS cut him..

    Please cut him…so he can go to a real team.

  • Thec07

    SNB, Who would stand up to Mr. Davis??? herrera, trask taylor, the janitor…. any of the other hangers on????

    Mr. Davis is an ego maniac, he is not te franchise…

  • 24

    DownTheBay – Whatever dude. Seriously. This isn’t even worth talking about. There are people who love Al Davis and people who love JR and I’m not one of them I guess.

  • kidseven

    I think Russell would be better than Bruce if he had Bruce’s brain, feel, touch and attitude.

    MR are you going to cry if the Raiders win?

  • DownTheBayMOG

    Ah, the ol’ Hackett conspiracy theory…is that more likely than Jamarcus is an inaccurate passer?

    We have had this discussion already- he was more accurate last season- so the answer is no.

  • Thec07

    Black Ryan Leaf goes to a real team he still will beed to lose weight and understand the playbook, between helpings of bar b q…

    You are right…it’s not. The sun will still come up tomorrow and Russell will still get his check on Tuesday so you’re right, it’s not worth talking about.

  • DownTheBayMOG

    Black Ryan Leaf goes to a real team he still will beed to lose weight and understand the playbook, between helpings of bar b q…

    Real team with a real coach = real production from the players. Grads knows the playbook because it’s the same playbook from Tampa…Russell learned the whole playbook this summer, however in an attempt to make him “seem” dumb, you guys continue to say that he doesn’t know it- how do you know what he knows? If Hackett spent half as much time coaching this kid instead of trying not to coach him, the results would speak for themselves.

  • AbusedByAl

    Thanks for sharing those links. None of them worked for me – I have Opera browser, that may be a reason. But not to worry.
    CBS nfl site says we scored a TD… :-) I’d say we take it!

  • kidseven

    Sorry, I just get hyped up watching them sustain a drive. I agree Jamarcus was accurate at the end of last season, but I don’t accept the Hackett conspiracy. Russell has had plenty of chances this season.
