    I like the Redskins to cover (-6), take the points with AZ (+5) and the over in the Cowboys game.

    2 out of 3 at least

    Book it

    Top-10 O.
    Bottom 3 D.

    —————————

    You’re using a bad metric to say “Top-10 O”. Are you using the yardage to get that? The Raiders offense is #15 in scoring. Yardage doesn’t determine games. Scoring does.

    If you’re going to be middle of the road or worse in scoring, you need to have an elite defense. Aside from the pathetic AFC West teams, the only serious playoff contenders that have scored fewer points this season are Tennessee and Pittsburgh – both in the top 10 fewest points given up on defense.

    So, even if you have an average defense, you need to do better than #15 in scoring offense.

    Thanks Eddie.

    It’s booked.

    GO WIGGLE!

  • nwr8r

    T Jones is out? I thought he practiced all week. WTF?

    Bloody Maryz U Beezys!

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    AZ is plus 4.

    The over on the Dallas line is 51 and 1/2.

    GO WIGGLE!

  • djohnnyg

    Bush’s stock falls around the league with every game he plays.

    3.9 yds. a carry is not very impressive.

    Anybody can do that.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Egg Nog and some erk and jerk

  • djohnnyg

    And Bush’s average per carry has gradually declined with each game he plays.

  • HairyBush

    NO Taiwan Jones today!!!! That sux!

  • VanHeathen

    Taiwan is OUT again..
    and yet, Hue says there is no holes in the roster that NEED top be filled?
    We’ve been down to 1 RB for over a montha nd he still refuses to IR JC and bring up a back from the PS.

    WHAT A CROCK OF CRUD!
    Boyd will probably be playing today too…

  • Just Fire Baby

    For all of you who complain about the new rules on blows to the head and what not, these former NFL players suing the league is only going to make it MASSIVELY WORSE.

  • hendu

    107,YOU beat me to the punch,WTF,we got a few fragile players,SKILL players,rbs,Man,do I remember the late 60s and 70s,these guys would VOTE for FLAG Football.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Taiwan was injury prone in college, so this should be of no suprise.

  • LT DAN

    Wow Jones again….

    My thoughts exactly, By 2018 the NFL will basically be 2 hand touch.

    It’s a surprise because he was practicing.

  • olinesux

    With cork ran who is active who is not?

  • LT DAN

    So much for playing through pain and all those kinds of cliches. Would these guys be playing if this was a playoff game?

  • olinesux

    No they have no heart….

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Hue should have brought in a another running back when Twinkle toes went down.

    When was that again?

  • hendu

    119,2 hand touch is way to violent,the guy with the ball may be PUSHED to the ground,cant happen

  • nwr8r

    Season on the line, too many guys out. It almost feels like the guys are planning for next year all ready.

    I’m one of those fans that believes 1 season just isn’t enough to turn around a team….

    Look at all the teams that go from losing records to playoffs the next year. It happens. Look at SF this year. They go from losing to ELITE in one year with omg…a ROOKIE head coach.

    People are all too willing to make excuses or be understanding in regard to Raiders failures.

    Raiders were 8-8 last year. You almost EXPECT an 8-8 team on the rise to AT LEAST make the playoffs.

    That was the stated goal and why Hue came in THIS year in the first place.

  • http://ggeden.wordpress.com/ GG

    The funny thing is, this IS a playoff game, a super bowl in fact, for us today.

    so i guess hue would sit playmakers out who aren’t entirely healthy but could contribute, in a real playoff game. However, i doubt that too, and yet it’s being done still.

  • olinesux

    maybe the UFL can show some huevos and bring back real football. All these players know the risks and choose to take them for big paydays and glory…no one, no one is forcing them to play…suing the nfl is like a highway patrol suing the state for getting shot or hit by a car, the risk is inherent in their chosen profession…..

  • http://ggeden.wordpress.com/ GG

    #127….im with you too on that. RaiderNation far too forgiving, just because we’re finally a .500 team again in back-to-back years.

    I can forgive raider nation this feeling for this year, but it’s time to climb out of it 2012 and no more excuses.

  • olinesux

    We will see if any of these guys have any pride….

  • Just Fire Baby

    The NFL could give a crap about player safety and would allow all the big hits it could.

    It is the players that are causing this change, and I am for it to an extent if guys are 40 years old and eating baby food.

    From his first play in preseason this Boyd guy has been an absolute piece of crap.

    There’s no two ways about it.

    What can u do though? The dbackfield is decimated with injuries.

    if you’ve got Dick VanDyke starting back there…you’ve got problems.

    Raiders have to stop picking up players who look good in the special olympics. Sure, the “specials” are competitive, but they just don’t translate into NFL quality players.

  • armond

    wassup hendu! im not giving up on rolando but i want to see him make more plays. he needs take a huge leap but its not too late for him.

  • hendu

    Fug this pus–fied league,Goodell/whatever is killin the sport,imo

  • 504 Raider

    What up Nation! Let’s go Raiders.

    Chuck B will be auditioning for a position coach job with other teams today and next week. Hopefully his next team will say:

    “We really liked the way he stood in there and came up with great schemes the last two games and the playoffs despite all the torture he endured on Steve and Jerry’s blog.”

  • armond

    why doesnt corky tell us post who the inactives are like jerr use to? he spends more time taking shots at heybey than he updates this blog.

  • hendu

    129,save youre post,send it to the NFL,FRIGGIN well said.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Did Solomon Wilcox just say that Kyle Orton is going to have a big day???

    No f’n way!!!!

  • hendu

    Armond,DHB will come thru,DMoore will as well.We need Reese to get many touches as well

  • RaidingTexas

    Just bring back leather helmets and you can solve this problem. No way Harrison drives his own head into another guy’s head if all he has is an inch of leather to protect his brain.

  • DaTruth91

    Lets go Raiders

    Carson Palmer carries the raiders to victory today

    After last Sunday, and looking at the stats, and actually watching the games, his statement makes perfect sense.

    He didn’t make a pick for todays game on NFLN last night but told Millen that Millens pick of the Raiders to win was “sentimental”.

    He’s a hater for sure.
