    All extra points go for 2…

    C’mon Tommy Kelly, we need a big game from you today!!!

    Go Raiders!!

  • Thec07

    We should either go for it or punt…

    Only time i want to sea perch in the game is dufing a kick off after we score a TD…

  • mistic1

    Hue jack has improved our offense leaps & bounds. Going to a downhill power running scheme was brilliant as dmac was miscast in the zbs running style. We are moving the ball getting 1st downs and have been in position to score. Grads/ campbell have not executed enough to put the points up.

    This crap about playing youngsters at receiver… Dhb & murphy are youngsters! Also they are far better options than ford miller & higgins. The only way ford higgins or miller could see the field while dhb and murphy are healthy is if we run 3-4 wide sets. We havent seen that part of hu jaks offense becuase of the severe line issues we ar up against

    Maybe our boy Pain McClain will have a little extra juice in his veins after watching his ‘Tide slap around the Gators last night.

    Thec, thats funny you say that!
    Kiffen over at USC does not kick the extra point, he goes for two!

  • Roch R

    I have to come to Seabass’s defence here, one of my favorite things about the Raiders is the fact that we have Lechler and Seabass as out kickers.

    Seriously would you rather have Swayze!?!

    Seabass had a bad game, so what, what Raider in the last 7 years hasn’t had a bad game!?!

    Don’t be so quick to forget that Seabass nailed a 58 yarder in the freezing cold at Cleveland.

    As far as kickers go he’s one of the better ones, and he’s a huge pollack that kicks left footed, and plays his kicks like a golf swing, the guy is pure porn!

    So IMO get off the hate Seabass wagon while you still have time, because if you’re a Raider fan, at somepoint over the last 7 years you felt pride when that big guy trotted on the field for a 55+ yard field goal, and you know it.

    Cut Seabass some slack, he’s a Raider, he’s OUR Kicker.

    Go Raiders, Go Seabass!

    We are hurting on the oline, our dtackles are banged up, & our promising young weapons out wide are gimpy,. I dont see how we caj win this game. If grads turns the ball over ( and he probably will) we will lose big.

  • Roch R

    The Raider Recipe for this win is to simply make this a down and dirty football game.

    Defence has to step up and have a big game, starting with Tommy Kelly.

    Time for our secondary to start grabbing some picks.

    The most important thing as usual is to contain the run early, and score early.

    Grads, has to lead an opening drive TD, we have to force the Texans to go to the air and play catch up.

    The ingredients are there, soft Texan pass defence, A strong D-line even when banged up, and The BEST secondary in football. We have what it takes to win.

    But we have to get ahead, and stuff the run early. Simple, but easier said than done.

    Grads needs to be our fire.

    Go Raiders.

    *********************************

    In all of his starts with the Silver and Black (almost half a season), he has never thrown more than one INT in a game, with a few games without a turnover.

    He will be fine, and might outplay Schaub today.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Bruce in a much-win game and the SF Giants play for the playoff, AT THE SAME TIME!!!

    About to get real serious for me in about 4 hours.

  • aig-raiders

    frickin small world….

    Went to my wife’s school and ran into a hubby of her classmate. The guy was the Sr. QB when Almighty was a redshirt freshman at Toledo. Had nothing good things to say about Almighty.

  • Roch R

    BRUUUUUUUUCCCEEE!

  • Roch R

    I am pumped up, enjoy the game nation!! Today is a big one!

    GO RAIDERS!!

  • aig-raiders

    *had nothing but good things to say…damn laptop

  • Just Fire Baby

    The only people you can find with anything bad to say about Bruce are a few of the playa-haters on here.

  • Thec07

    This crap about playing youngsters at receiver… Dhb & murphy are youngsters! Also they are far better options than ford miller & higgins. The only way ford higgins or miller could see the field while dhb and murphy are healthy is if we run 3-4 wide sets. We havent seen that part of hu jaks offense becuase of the severe line issues we ar up against

    ++++++++
    Of course DHB and LMURPHY are youngsters, you stet the obvious why?

    They are also veterans No?

    Who said JOFRD, or NMILLER was a better option that our current starters?

    Are you insane, or is it your habit of putting words in peoples mouths…Tell me where i said that? If not you are a liar staight out…

    Disagree with your last point als you can still run 3-4 wides, you just need a quick drop and release….

    Next…

    Put your prediction up so I can have something to laugh at later on tonite…

  • Thec07

    To run a 3-4 wide set you dont need to throw 30 yrds down field….

    Raiders 24 – ___17

  • Just Fire Baby

    Not many second-half adjustments from Hue last week.

    At the same time, I’m sure he would tell you he had his offense in position to win the ballgame, and scored a season-high points while leaving a lot on the table.

  • Thec07

    Hue Jack grade C-

    —————————

    Yes. players have bad games, but he has had 2 out of the 3 for a team that cannot afford their kicker to miss game winning field goals.

    IMO that was possibly a season defining choke job. He demoralized that team. I don’t think people realize what a HUGE loss that was if you are hoping for 8-8 (or better). That was one YOU HAD TO HAVE to get there.

    Please, someone share a list of all the game winners Jano has made. I can give u three right off the bat that he’s blown in the final seconds.

    -Jets in 2003
    -Denver a couple yrs. back
    -Last week against Arizona

    Granted, he has not had many opportunities in the last seconds to win (or lose) a game, but the chances he has had, he has blown.

    He did kick that 63 yarder to win a game in OT against the Jets acouple yrs. ago but no one expected him to make it anyway, therfore NO PRESSURE really.

    When the pressure is on, he resorts to he really is an individual: a fat, drunk, failure.

  • raiderswagga12

    Have we ever been blown out in a game WHEN BRUCE GRADKOWSKI IS THE QB,EXACTLY.lets calm down and take that for what it is,we are at home raidernation,the black hole!.raiders take it 35-21.

  • mistic1

    @ thec o7
    relax bra none said ford higgins or miller were better options. My point was those giys couldnt get on the field in our two wide set, becuase dhb & murph should not ever be replaced while they are healthy.

    Im afraid you are wrong about our offense. It is a 3 wide deep passing game. 1991 redskins with the rypien & the posse. You need to pass protect to get into that part of thw playbook. With out an oline, and a turnover prone qb, we must chip with backs and tight ends. This is why you havnt seen 3 wides yet.

    Hu jack had us in position to score, the team has blown the chances.

  • RaiderRetribution

    word on NFL Network this morning, ANdre johnson is very doubtful, Raiders should win by at least two TDs if Andre is out.

  • mistic1

    Cables o line struggles against 3-4 front, and we are banged up oline, this could get ugly. The raider dline is beat up going against a prolific run offense, not a good mix

  • jerryburger

    909raider do you know if SO CAL cbs is playing the raider game today or do we gotta go to the bar n watch/?!??!!

  • aig-raiders

    Hue didnt have us in position to score. His playcallings sucked. No 2nd half adjustments and we kept on calling the same plays. We kept on dialing for passes in the redzone when we should rely on our best offensive weapon Dmac. We were lucky to have a chance to win that game in spite of Hue Jackson, Mario and Veldheer.

  • aig-raiders

    Man, Pete Carrol got it right with Earl Thomas. The man is a ball hawk.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Earl Thomas, Safety 14th pick in the draft, had two picks and a TD in the preseason, and already 3 int’s this year.

    If we could get anything close to that from our Huff we would have been in some good shape the last few years.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Pete Carroll didn’t get it right with that fake though, LOL.
