Dolphins 33, Raiders 17

Fourth quarter notebook

POSTED AT THE 2-MINUTE WARNING
– Ricky Williams broke loose on a 45-yard touchdown run with 3:12 to play to put the Dolphins up 33-17 and send most of the fans that remained streaming for the exits. A team that gained 160 yards in four quarters against the Bears in a 16-0 loss was up to 475 yards after the scoring run.

– Bruce Gradkowski threw errantly on a fourth-and-4 play near midfield, turning the ball over to the Dolphins. He was 13 of 26 for 216 yards at the time of the incompletion.

– Chad Henne surpassed 300 yards and continued to go after Walter McFadden in the fourth quarter with a 23-yard pass to Davone Bess. Dan Carpenter’s 25-yard field goal put Miami up 26-17.

– Ford stole a deep Gradkowski pass early in the fourth quarter for a 52-yard gain to set the Raiders up deep in Miami territory. It set up a 30-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski when the Raiders couldn’t punch in a touchdown.

    If you caught Gradkowski in bed with your wife you would’ve said Al put him up to it.

    What is there left to say when your best and hardest-working player is a rookie fourth-round draft pick?

    Pathetic! The Raiders are a bunch of heartless, gutless preeners.

    C/ATT YDS AVG TD INT RATING
    B. Gradkowski 17/32 252 7.9 1 2 63.5

    who in their right mind would support this Garbagekowski???

    JC has been at the helm for 4 wins this season. The man behind center during the 3 game streak. Its flat out ridiculous how our recievers stand around waiting on the slow balls thrown by Grads. Defenders had all day to make adjustments to the ball. I’m not saying JC is Jim Plunkett 2.0 but he has shown our most consistent QB play

    No QB could have performed in this game plan today. Campbell fared a lot better than Campbell would have. Campbell would have been sacked 20 times today.

    So. Tom “5-11″ Cable better start sending resumes to high schools and Pewee leagues. The O-line is pathetic.
    Small Dlines tire late in games & late in the season. Look at our D give up tons of rushing yards during the rest of the season.
    …Playing rookies? trying to make Al’s draft look good? or trying to make opposing QBs look like Tom Brady?

    Just remember, we have seen what this team can do. That wasn’t a mirage, that actually happened. Someone smack them in the head with a 2×4 to wake them up.

    I really hope Jacoby Ford winds up on a real team. What a waste of talent he is here. This guy could do real things on a real franchise. So could Gradkowski. You could really see him hustling today and leading the team. Campbell would have been sacked 20 times. Deer in the headlights look on the first drive. You just don’t get that with Gradkowski. He’s a leader. I hope he’s healthy, because we need him back.

  • anthonyraiders

    The Raiders have a chance at 8-8 and maybe 9-7. If we stick with Bruce and the defense plays better we can achieve this. Also the line has to block for Mcfadden. Even if they don’t block for the pass very well they have to open up whole’s for the running game. If they have no pass blocking at all, bruce gives the Raiders a chance to be a short pass threat with screens and playaction. Campbell not getting any blocking up front, well we loss bad. Also we all know Bruce is not a threat to throw deep, so Hue needs to use more of the west coast. Short passes, screens and Miller.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    What second hand bartender is gonna coach the Raidehs next year? Find out next June.

  • I am Spartacus

    I was a Bruce supporter, but he just doesn’t have the arm to get the job done. And Campbell doesn’t have the heart or brains, so we’re done for the year.

  • Just Fire Baby

    No way in hell the Raiders have any chance of drafting Andrew Luck.

    Why would any time give up the chance of drafting him (probably the 1st pick in the draft) for a future 1st rounder??

    The Raiders have ZERO chance of moving into the top 10 next year. ZERO. Well unless they want to trade Jacoby Ford and Darren McFadden and a 1st round pick, and I am not even sure that would seal the deal.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Al Davis sabotaged Gradkowski. It’s obvious. That game plan was impossible. It’s an old trick. You want to get rid of an employee, but you don’t want to look like the bad guy. It’s simple. You set them up to fail, that way, “they got their self fired”. It’s too easy. Sorry, Bruce. I hope you wind up on a real team someday. Same with Ford. They deserve it. Al Davis? Well, he deserves what he’s getting, year after year, doesn’t he?

  • Raider Dell

    Tim Brown and Ray Guy on HOF list.

    However, due to the Raider bias, they won’t make it in.

    Ummm seems to me he has been around the league, and been dumped, by the Browns and the Bucs, keep hitting that pipe.

    I don’t think Nnamdi would warrant a 3rd round pick in the draft, strictly because of his contract.

    Anthony .. wake up … we have given up 68 points against two average offenses … the defense is done and the offensive line is piss poor … send cable packing … he can’t coach the line let alone the entire team .. we’ll be lucky is we win 2 more

    People that say they ain’t watching another game for the rest of the season are hilarious. How easy it is to be a fan of a team only when they win. Lol

  • 0ak72

    qb and o-line are all you need to be competitve in the modern-rules nfl. maybe two decent recievers. we have maybe 1 wr and 1 lineman, but both are rookies. at least three years to fill the rest.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Al Davis is lucky to even have Gradkowski.

  • I am Spartacus

    I hope WMacFadden was getting chewed out on the sidelines. Every time he gave up a big play on 3rd-and-long, he looked liked he didn’t have a care in the world. And that’s the problem with the whole team – no one is accountable for anything.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    Thanks Al, for sabotaging the team today, just to prove a point. I know you feel good. Al, notice how everyone who leaves you winds up doing better, and you just get worse?

    Win as a TEAM/lose as a TEAM..

    The secondary was burnt toast all day, W McFadden inparticular was crispy..

    Special teams: Gave up some big yards on kicks/punts..

    Blitz: Live or die. See, McFadden W.

    Offense: Yes it was offensive. Is Hue at fault?

    QB: Piss poor at best. Could Jason have done better?
    I don’t know. See Offense above..

    Defense: Did there best, got gassed. See blitz above..

    Coaching: Cable?, Hue?, Marshall?. Or Sparano? See scoreboard..

    Al?:???

    Who’s at fault?: Some will blame all of the above. Others will blame some of the above..

  • anthonyraiders

    I will have to say I really agree with trading Asomough. I like him alot but with the way the NFL officials wont allow a corner to play, he just not worth the money. Trade him and Kelly for a first round pick. Get a quarterback and second round a big defensive tackle who just takes up space. I know that this wont be popular here but I would not mind seeing the Raiders go after Brady Quinn. I think he can be made into something good.

  • http://www.aldavissucks.blogspot.com The Real MaddenRaider

    909, I said on Thanksgiving that Al Davis is thankful for crooked mob lawyers and Wayne Valley going to Munich. I also said that most Raider fans, however, are not. Dell is, though. He loves losing. As long as Al’s just the man, baby! lol.

  • brian_3520

    Nobody is saying that Jason Campbell is elite like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and those guys, but if Cable gave the guy some breathing room and some time, he could get the job done and he might have top 10 in the NFL stats.

    For 2009, Campbell was #15 in the NFL in passer rating you know. Dovovan McNabb, the new Redskins QB in #28 in passer rating right now. He’s WORSE than Campbell. Look it up on nfl.com.

    Cable must like those quick, scrambling QBs I guess. I don’t understand it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    ATkinson saying the Dolphins focused completely on Nnamdi’s bad ankle going to his right every time.

    Hue would never even get that far in his offense. Sparano and his staff are teaching Trigonometry and Hue is teaching basic algebra.

    The Oline has been pathetic throughout Cable’s tenure! This dude is not even a decent Oline coach, what the hell is he doing as HC? This must be the most untalented team in the NFL. 5 decent players, the rest are a bunch of projects and track dudes trying to play football.

  • Raider Dell

    We need to pick up Carson Palmer or Matt Leinart next season. They will take us to the promised land. Trade Asomugha.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Trade him and Kelly for a first round pick.
