Third quarter: Browns 20, Raiders 9


Notes and observations from the third quarter of the Raiders-Browns game”

— Cleveland content to feed James Harrison (29 carries, 122 yards) and work the clock as quarter expires.

— Raiders get out of shadow of own end zone following fumble recovery but end up punting from inside own 35.

— Anderson carves up Raiders for 28- and 24-yard receptions to Mohamed Massaquoi and Michael Gaines. Touchdown by Harrison nullified by illegal block in back.

Greg Ellis fumble recovery, forced by Thomas Howard on Harrison, prevents Browns from going up 27-9.

— First possession derailed in part by Higgins drop. Frye’s 23-yard dumpoff to McFadden, beating a blitz, is wasted as Raiders punt.

— Raiders immediately give back Janikowski’s team-record 61-yard field goal on first possession. Browns drive for Dawson’s 33-yard kick.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha missed final series of half but was back on the field to start second half. If he can’t finish, they’re ultra-thin at corner with ejection of Stanford Routt.

    damn ref squatting down right in front of it and gives Clev the ball.

  • djohnnyg

    Cable’s playcalling is horrendous.

    C’mon…this is Cleveland you loser.

  • lefty12

    we call the same plays every phucking team does.

  • Tonio


  • Florida Pete

    game over…

  • SC

  • 504 Raider

    They call that on Murph and not the Massoquoi push off on CJ.

  • raider91

    Good fkn gawd. I hate Al Davis and wish the man nothing but a slow painful death for this crap he has bestowed upon Raider Nation.

    Good fkn night. I’m going to drink the rest of the weekend away.

  • New Orleans lost to Tampa. Holy Fuggenstein!

  • raider91

    gay, its over no TD.

  • gogo0

    why the hell didnt we run the ball even ONCE???
    holy sh*t!!

  • Yeh, Goodbye, Cable. Bring on the next Davis puppet. We won’t win more than 5 games in a season till the old man croaks.

  • 24

    We can beat…

    The Eagles
    The Bengals
    The Steelers
    The Broncos


    We can’t beat the Browns?


  • raider91

    need safety.

  • djohnnyg

    How come Bush isn’t playing???

    He gains over 100 yds. averages over 5 yds. a carry and sits on the bench while Charlie Freaking Frye blows the game with lame pass attempts.

  • 504 Raider

    We went from #10 to about #7 in draft.

  • JB

    The NFL, via their officiating squad, Gives AD the finger as pay-back for all his schit they’ve put up with over the years. I guess they must think he’s #1. The single finger salute!

    Typical letdown against a bad team after a win against a good team

    No. Other teams would keep feeding a running back getting 5.6 yards a carry.

    Except Oakland, where a little league coach plays favorites and holds grudges at the expense of winning.

    Bush should have 25 carries by now.

    What a joke!

  • The just showed the mistake by the lake. Frye made a few of those today.

  • Oakland has…

    Grimace at Coach
    Frye at QB
    Big-Mc at RB
    Double Quarter with Cheese as back-up QB

    and to top it off, they are owned by a Clown.

    They should have Golden Arches on their helmets.

    Bengals in the playoffs…DEATH TO THE CHARGERS!

  • raider91

    Dude the O linemen don’t open the holes the run is not working, its not all on cable.

  • Who said we call the same plays as other teams? Crackhead. Whoever it was. Straight up.

  • weaselbit

    Entire Raider team ejected: Game over.

  • AddaToon

    mangini is definitely getting fired

  • We call the same plays as other teams…HAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • M Lonetree

    You tell me how it woulda been worse to watch JRuss f8c9 this one up worse than Frye-boy.
    In the end it is the Cable-Guy running McF up the gut and puking allover everything thinking to put the game in Frye-boys hands.

  • They just showed Russell covered in snow and freezing. LOL.

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    Almost forgot about that. You are correct.

  • Lonetree, I thought that was Russell playing today? Whoever it was, he looked half retarded.

  • AddaToon

    Miller is a G

  • At least Miller has heart.

  • Raiders might as well play Flores.

  • raider91

    we are in RedZone.

  • djohnnyg

    It’s not against the rules to run into the endzone Miller.

  • 24

    And the Raiders lose to Eric Wright and the 10 observers on the field.

  • Tonio

    emmnmmm fryed

  • Florida Pete

    cable runs this offense like he’s got Manning back there…

    we should be a run first team…

    but no matter who is back there, we wanna pass…

    that’s just plain retarded…

  • raider91

    omg F@k Frye!!!!!!!!!!!
