    So you think Seattle’s D is 22 points better than the Saints? I dont. I think 38-6 NO is the final. Alex Smith throws 3 more picks and they are calling for his head in SF. SF proceeds to trade us a 3rd rd pick for Campbell…

  • No Mas Diamante

    Loved the way we dominated the time of possession. 36 min to 23! gave the d lots of rest.

  • RaiderRockstar

    argee about Mclain. that was a bonehead play for a guy with a supposedly high football IQ.

    ***

    yeah man. were the fans cheering when Kelly jumped offsides twice? carlisle’s false start, veldheer’s hold, Routt’s illegal contact ???

    a penalty is a penalty imo. the Rams scored on that drive, so it’s not like it got the defense so fired up that they actually played better!

  • raiderfan12

    Al should Fire Tom Cable.

    Will he have his little pouch on a stick and be called Hobo…

  • No Mas Diamante

    Loper > Carlile… imo

  • raiderfan12

    Can’t belived we barley beat the Rams by 2 points.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Can’t be any worse than Raider O does, or Dakota, or RRS.

    ***

    Dell, have you traded DMAC to Dakota for his backup kicker yet ???

    Hello Captain obvious!

    Nobody ever gets fired after a win. Bought himself another week.

  • big chill

    AL Should Fire himself, he’s been the only thing consistent this whole losing time, a new coach will not change anything i don’t care if they got the best coach out there as long al davis is in charge we will suck

    My wonderful friend. Could you please start a “FIRE CABLE LIST” and include me, thanks for your effort.

    You’re on the blog more than I, that’s why I suggested you.

    How’s the family?

    BCZ: nice pipe dream bro

    Smith will have a pick or two, but keep his job and get Divatree & Davis going late in the game (garbage minutes)

    ===========
    What about getting fired on your day off?

  • J Hill

    Dell,

    PLay started out with just Clayton on the right side in front of Routt. The slot guy motioned to the right side and Clayotn, Slot guy, and Jackson all released into their patterns. Slot guy ran a 2yd delayed out, Routt picked him up. Wimbley picked up Jackson coming out of the backfield. Clayton ran right past Branch.

    Did he really expect McClain to get back to defend that play?

  • stoopidmike

    # RaiderRockstar Says:

    Didn’t see much of McClain besides that bodyslam, which I know got the crowd & defense fired up … while the Rams marched down for a TD!

    Veldheer & McClain both still have a LONG ways to go imo

    He slammed a guy about the size of Nick Miller. It’s not like he bodyslammed Steven Jackson!

    he gave the Rams 15 yards and extra motivation. the very next play was a 20 yard pass to Amendola, clearly unfazed by the slam. the drive ended in a TD and cut our lead to just 2 points

    he needs to keep his emotions in check. We had enough stupid penalties yesterday than to have to worry about some rookies bravado

    ever watched SAVED BY THE BELL?

    this is basically like Slater punching Skreetch in the face. not a major accomplishment
    ——————————————
    In ROMAC Defense, he did lead the team in tackles, and his penalty was the best penalty i’ve seen in a raider game in a long time. It wasn’t a mental error, it was a statement penalty and it got the D and the crown pumped. Even though a touchdown came on the drive, i dont blame that penalty at all. Fact is, the guy was still on his feet and the whistle hadnt been blown.He man’d up on him and i was pumped no doubt.

    Dakota,

    Is pulling a Al Davis on me, he wants more than a straight trade, I probably will have to throw in some cole slaw.

  • raiderfan12

    Al should hire Tom FLores as the new coach.

    Its the NFL. What league do you watch? A win is a win, especially for a team like us coming off a blowout loss. If Grads plays 4 quarters, the gap would have been more than 2 points IMO

    This is great, I love this.

    Do you really expect Branch to cover Clayton over Routt.

    We are not there, was Routt to follow Clayton and Branch take the out pattern, since Branch is the safety and looks to tackle first. Or did Routt communicate to Branch to take his man.

    I saw exactly, what I told you in my comments this morning.

    I want to see Gallery Back at Left Tackle. Its time. He’s a better player now than he was 3 years ago.

  • No Mas Diamante

    Cable stays. the players seem to like him.

  • bcz24

    In a cover 2 the LB’s responsibility is short dumps or screens in the flat, Corner responsibility is intermediate and safety is deep. I think the issue is the caught us in a base 3-4 looking to stop a short/intermediate throw and they threw it to an obvious hole in the zone. Make no mistake is was a spectacular catch by Clayton.

  • bcz24

    Gallery cant remain healthy long enough to be considered a tangible starter anywhere on the line.

    Jhill and I are dissecting, the first TD pass to Clayton. He is getting frustrated with Branch and sometimes, a call is missed, and we are going over who, is at fault on that particular play.

  • big chill

    yeah the billboard was put up for al, he still is here why do we want another coach who won’t do anything under al, we need a gm and a good coach but al needs to step aside

  • bcz24

    Im of the opinion that if Cable was not going to be retained, they should have gotten rid of him, as speculated would happen, back in March. This is his team now for better or worse. Midseason coaching changes NEVER work out for the positive of the team. No one fires their coach and gets better.

  • J Hill

    Dell,

    Is this going in the direction of yours and Os argument over Huff?

    Cover 2 defense!

    Why would branch go UNDERNEATH Routt to cover the slot guy running a 2 yd out to the flat?

    You’re going off memory and I’m looking right at the play with slow mo, rewind, and all that, lol.

    Let’s take your point. The coach was talking to who on the Branch on the sidelines, not Routt or McClain, right?

    OK but when he is healthy he is our best lineman. He’s much better than Henderson/Barnes/Veldheer. His health isnt the reason he’s at guard.

  • bcz24

    Oh. Well on the second TD Routt had good coverage, but Clayton made an amazing grab. I guess I would have to watch the first one again to make any judgements on it.

  • The Big Banana

    RR – You’re starting to scare me, bro. Saved by the Bell?

  • Plunketthead

    Its Suzy Kolber night and she is looking fine as ever!!

  • raiderfan12

    our offensive line sucks. The offensive line should of been fixed 3 years ago by Tom Cable. The worst coach of all time.

  • guest123

    What I saw in DMAC was a power back running defenders into the hard dusty Oakland Coliseum infield dirt and get up smiling as the defenders gingerly got up and dusted themselves off.

    30 rushes, 20 second half rushes. You won’t see many nancy’s do that, at 5.4 per carry.

    Bush can go ahead and do his rehab through October. He needs to be nice and healed up. Let’s ride this horse for all he’s worth.

  • StayinBlack

    If Grad’s can keep moving the ball down the field and put TD’s on the board we should be in good shape(obvious) but converting 3rd downs at a 55-65% rate the raiders will win next week.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Run Defense:

    Raiders are 29th, we have gone against C. Johnson (he and & AP the two best) and S. Jackson, minus CJ’s one big 74 yd run raiders are 14th in run D

    next 3 weeks we are up against Hightower/Wells (has been & never was), Foster (one hit wonder), and Matthews so far a rookie bust.

    Raiders D will improve vastly,

    Raiders have not had big early leads to force opponents to throw more than run until late vs the Rams.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Mr. Routt gets another interception against the Cardinals teams will start throwing against Mr. Asomugha.

  • RaiderRetribution

    espn & nfl networks sucks & bites

    Their Raider highlights have yet to show Mr. Groves’ or Mr. Browns’ special teams hit, all they show was the roughing the passer play by the Rams that was on 2nd down and the Raiders still had the lead, so even w/o that penalty, Raiders were going to win that game anyway.

    DK, Divatree is going off tonight

    150 yards and 2 TD’s against a weak Saints secondary (minus Sharper)

    ^^^^^^^^
    Don’t think so….the Saints have good Corners actually.

    CrabDiva aint going off that much versus anyone.

    ^^^^^^^
    Nope….his alligator arms will cause him to swing and miss and his footwork is not good enough to compensate for his lack or arm length at the LT position.

    I personally think Barnes needs to start at LT and Jared at RT.

    JUST WIN BABY
