End 1st qtr: Dolphins 10, Raiders 7

First-quarter notebook:

– Good start on Jacoby Ford kickoff return, then it was all Dolphins and quarterback Chad Henne.

– Davone Bess burns Stanford Routt on third-and-10 for 23-yard gain as Dolphins got out poor field position at their own 10 on last possession of first quarter.

As the quarter ended, Miami was past midfield after runs by Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown.

– Darren McFadden is dumped for a pair of 3-yard losses to wreck a drive that started with a 29-yard Gradkowski to Murphy hookup.

Back to Pittsburgh game, that’s six carries on his last 13 attempts.

– Miami moved 65 yards on eight plays in its second possession for a touchdown, with the score coming on a 30-yard pass to Patrick Cobbs against a trailing Michael Huff. Miami getting first downs, mixing in wildcat, Raiders defense on the defensive.

— Gradkowski can’t do anything with third-and-15 on first series, a 6-yard pass to McFadden on third down. McFadden dumped by Cameron Walke on second-and-8. Ford gets a 5-yard false start.

— Dan Carpenter’s 49-yard field goal gave the Dolphins points out of their first possession, getting 27 of their 29 yards on the drive on a single play _ Henne’s completion to Brian Hartline on a back shoulder throw against Nnamdi Asomugha.

    Yes RaidingTexas I was here last week but I posted very briefly. It wasn’t exactly a game to talk a lot about if you know what I mean. I am here for the same reason you men are here…because I love the Raiders and I LEARN a lot by reading what you men say. If that and me being a woman means I am a troll to AB Paine…well, I don’t know what to say except that I am sorry you feel that way AB Paine.

    Defense needs to get off the field, TOP does not look good.

  • 504 Raider

  • los9091

    Because WR’s have highlight reels. Veldheer doesn’t get enough cred and he contributes on every play

  • Guy

    4 10+ plays or 1st d own plays vs Asomugha. Idk if its cause hes injrued or not, but he is not playing well at all

  • davidon

    Why are guys running free on underneath routes??

  • los9091

    Geez…why did they not bring the house again on that 3rd down?

    Obviously it was working!

    Ooooohhh…well, i just answered my own question.

    OKBruh…my bad…I dont want anybody wearing the silver and black to fail…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Funny how both Ford and Bruce Campbell were 4th round picks, and we traded a 4th round pick for Jason Campbell.

    Ford was the gem of all those 4th rounders

  • kidseven

    Henne doesn’t care for blitzes.

  • 504 Raider

    Wow! We have to game plan for their undrafted WR Bess. The Dolphins fast forward DHB film.

  • raidermarty

  • RaidersMom

    Paine… and just how the hell am I supposed to PROVE to you I am a Mom? And, why on earth does that even matter anyways? Fine. If you want to think of me as a 25 year old bomb shell with no children then great. I will appreciate the compliment especially when I am a 62 old Mother and Grandmother. But, you go right ahead and believe what you want to, ok? Now, can we get back to talking about the game and football? I apologize to the rest of you for this mindless interruption. GO RAIDERS!

    The only ones I consider trolls around here are the ones who “wish” for the Raiders to fail because they hate a specific player.

    They know who they are.

    If ball was thrown in end zone they woulda got P.I. call.

  • olinesux

    no pressure on henne at all

  • mikedlopes

    We do that every third down and get burned.. underneath or in man coverage

  • mikedlopes

    We have no coverage in the flats at all..

  • olinesux

  • RaidersMom

    Thank you 504Raider. It is appreciated. Cancer sucks!

  • davidon

    Double cover Bess!

  • 504 Raider

    Why can’t we cover this guy? Are you kidding me!

  • los9091

    why is W. McFadden covering Miamis #1 WR????

  • RaidingTexas

    Bess is putting on a clinic for the Raiders receivers not named Ford.

  • 504 Raider
