    Kool-Aid splash anyone?

    the Raiders are tied for 1st place in the division (again) !!!

  • morilla

    I am trying to remember the days of when we have had a dominate defense. I mean a bunch of mean mother truckers that stopped anything and was a deciding factor in the outcome of games.

    I guess that’s why I still and only wear my #75 and haven’t bought a defensive jersey since.

  • Thec07

    TRUTH.

    Nick Miller = hot garbage

    ++++++++++

    I can no longer support having this guy on the team…
    It made sense as i did not want DMOORE or JFORD retiring any kicks however. TJ would be more than adequate….

  • bcz24

    Rockstar I will man up and say it… McClain looked awful yesterday. I would rather Darryl Blackstock was playing over him.

    Im not ready to write him off yet. Young guys have bad games, even when they are drafted in the top 10.

    D Moore is a lethal weapon we haven’t had since C Branch. If I see DHB taking Moores snaps Hue is obviously going to get socked in the chops.

  • Chris in NY

    Didn’t realize we have Houston in Week 5, too. This is a tough, tough stretch coming up. I think Houston is a legit Super Bowl contender this year. Actually, if I had to bet on one team to win it all — outside of the Raiders of course — I think it just might be Houston.

    Might be a must-win this Sunday.

    Schedule becomes far more manageable after that. Only GB in Week 14 looks like a major hurdle.

    Seymour showing up for 1 or 2 games a year and being injured for 3 or 4 is getting real old. Maybe he needs to start coming off the bench and let Bryant or Houston get more work inside.

    +++++

    Truth, the money guys on both sides need to make playd…We neede 1 FCK stop …1….is that to much to ask….

    What is the record for most TD scored in a half?
    Posession to TD ratio?

    5 Posessions 5 Td’s…?????

    Saturday you got a cold one on me at Rickys.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Greene, McKnight & Tomlinson rushed 28 times for 71 yards against the Jags yesterday … that’s only 2.5 yards per carry

    Sanchez also threw 2 INT’s

    the Jets STILL beat J’Ville by 29 points!

    the Raiders better come ready to play next week

  • bcz24

    The Raiders better be on the horn with Lito Sheppard, and activating Sterling Moore. The rest of our secondary could cover a warm cup of pis$.

    That IS a record. No team has ever scored TDs on ALL of its second half possessions.

  • bcz24

    Luke McCown gift wrapped a W in the form of 4 ‘what the hell was that’ INTs. I think we can roll with the jets IF both our offense and defense show up for 4 quarters of football.

  • Plunketthead

    I thought we rushed the QB fairly well. We were in the backfield and all around him all game. We just could not lay a hand on him. They have a great Oline and I bet they give the pats & jets fits.

    It just was not our day, especially when you consider we dropped two, maybe three game ending interceptions.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    The Raiders biggest problem is focus…just like prior years.

    I still think as a unit they take plays off and it bites them in the backside.

    They need leadership really. Seymour is providing some of that but he too sounds like a “follow my example” type guy.

    They need, I hate to say it…but a Brian Dawkins / Ray Lewis type to just hold everyone accountable from a player standpoint.

    I “think” they have the talent..although I could be proven wrong….they have to execute.

    And execution is still a problem for this franchise

    ============================================
    You mean to say that they didn’t make the key play….no difference makers out there in the 2nd half…

    Just 11 role players.

    Can’t have that

  • inonewordraider

    as far as chuck b goes, don’t you think Fitzpatrick burns us even worse if we start blitzing?

    Is that what McCLain is, a role player?

    We dont have the talent in the secondary to stay competitive with the rest of the NFL right now. We need some real help back there and we need it fast.

    Excellent Post and the attitude this team needs to have this week.

    PLAY 4 QUARTERS OF FOOTBALL

    Its really as simple as that

    BCZ,

    Agreed.

    the worst part about it is the Raiders lack a legit backup for ANY starter in the LB corps

    Brown, Davis, Blackstock? puke!

    we missed out on Kirk Morrison. Tatupu wasn’t healthy (apparently?). who is left? is Sam Williams the best available?

    It was cafeteria defence yesterday,UpChuck B didn’t have a clue.

    *****************
    The Bills have on of the worst offensive lines in football. Its easy to block someone for less than 3 seconds though. They used the screen to get our defensive line second guessing and the short quick slants and middle of the field to keep the sticks moving. They disguised their weakness very well.

  • Thec07

    When was the last time our MLB had a QB sack?
    When he does blitz he never gets to the QB, and is always taken out of the play….

    ===================================================
    No, he’s a budding super star boss in the middle.

    But the attitude of the defense has to change a little.

    I meant to say they played like 11 role players.

    No key plays…no sense of urgency…just a run through the motions.

    If it was just ONE key drive…I would say too bad and that the other team gets paid too.

    But no stops for an entire half…and 35 points with only the clock stopping more.

    That’s what 11 role players do. Not 5 or 6 good to elite players

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    still dont see how anyone can blame chuck b. was it the wrong call when cj dropped the int? what about branches dropped int or the forced fumble that was robbed, where thos the wrong calls too? how about running backs breaking arm tackles at the line of scrimmage and turning into big runs, wrong defensive call? make the plays and we arent having this discussion.

    The takes on davis’s socalled mandated defense are ridiculous. we ran zone and blitzed, is this a davis mandate?

    we play man to man people blame davis, now we run multiple looks and people still blame davis.

    It is a new scheme and the players are trying to learn it, it will take time to gel

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    I think we can beat the patsies, it will be a shoot out.

    The pats cant stop the run or the pass. last team with the ball will win

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    mistic

    I agree.

    This one is all on the players.

    There are enough playmakers on that defense that should have made one stop.

    They got lazy. Hue has to instill discipline into this group

  • bcz24

    The depth for the entire back half of our defense is awful. Mitchell was sorely missed yesterday. We need to resign Lito and reactivate Moore. Cut Nick Miller the field position/roster spot killer and cut Stephon Heyer. Our Oline played very well yesterday and Heyer wasnt even activated.

  • Plunketthead

    Fitz just had an amazing pocket all day. It looked to me like we were all around him, we were getting a push, just not enough.

  • http://www.safc.com/page/StadiumofLightDetail/0,,10281~1706060,00.html neilb

    Question……..would that have happened if Marshall was still D coach?

  • RaiderRockstar

    The Raiders better be on the horn with Lito Sheppard, and activating Sterling Moore. The rest of our secondary could cover a warm cup of pis$.

    We dont have the talent in the secondary to stay competitive with the rest of the NFL right now. We need some real help back there and we need it fast.

    BCZ,

    with the type of defense that the Raiders run – there really isn’t a guy you can just trade for or sign off the street to improve the team immediately

    Outside of Asomugha & Routt, I bet CJ37 is the best CB in the league at playing the Raiders style of defense.

    I would welcome Sheppard & SMoore back, but in exchange for who? Chekwa & Porter? Miller & Ausberry?

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    It all starts up front.
    The LB’s need the front four to smash.
    The DB’s need the front 4 to smash.

    Our Db’s looked just fine in Den, our front 4 were ballin and blitz’s weren’t on film yet. Buff gets paid too they saw those blitz’s and adjusted.

    Miller and Heyer. Hue says he is all about performance and these guys have show they CANT perform.

  • Pretty Rick

    The Raiders defense should spend the entire week doing nothing but Tackling drills.

    Raiders-30 Jets-23

  • Rooks

    Is anyone the least bit surprised by this loss? The only thing surprising was that it wasn’t by more. The D was TERRIBLE all pre-season and only the blind would have seen it otherwise. I figured we’d be 1-1 to this point and am still holding to the team being 6-10 by season’s end. ONLY KC and Denv seem like good bets. It’s going to be a LOOOOONG season. Not a Raider-hater either. Have loved this team for 35 years but the inability to play the Present-Day game is crazy.

  • uclahoopsfan

    Sunday’s game will go a long way in determining whether this team is 6-10 or 10-6. While there are some obvious things that need to be fixed, I’m very encouraged by the offense. The Jets have a good defense so the Raiders will have to play at their best. I agree with you with some concerns about the defense, but at the same time we have pretty good players. They need to play up to their potential every play to give us a chance.

    BTW, why does Al Sanders say he needs to wait for a replay to advise coach Jackson to challenge. Someone with a DVR, needs to just rewind it real quick. Those are the little things that we may need to do to gain an advantage.

    Raiders fans, huge game Sunday! Let’s create an environment that gives our team any edge we can, cause God knows they need it. One game at a time, but Sunday is huge.

  • alspals

    I think we need to look at trading one or two of our wide receivers when they are all healthy for a more solid cornerback. We seem to be solid in the wide receiver area once Murphy is healthy. I could deal with possibly trading him to strengthen our secondary. Also I wanted to point out that the one all the analisysts said was our best o lineman in the preseason Robert Gallery, is hurt again and out 4 to 6 weeks. I still feel that letting him go was a great decision. We need to make sure that Sunday we play defense on our toes like we did against Denver and not on our heels like we did against Buffalo
