Detroit’s Jason Hanson kicked off to Oakland’s Mike Goodson before an intimate gathering of some 20,000 or so . . .

Goodson, the upback, with Taiwan Jones deep, returned it to the 21-yard line.

    Its been all 3 step drops. What do you expect?

  • Marks hair

    Flag#3?

  • 303Raider

    For sure our Run D looks improved. Getting sacks looks like its going to be a challenge…

  • Raider Riff

    3 penalties already?

    Its time for the Visor to light someone up.

  • Marks hair

    Come on guys…

  • DJ Johnny

    We look good? We’re still not scoring and they are still moving the ball.

  • Marks hair

    Marching on us…

  • Raider Riff

    Stafford is slingin’ it.

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    Lions have a great offense, so it will be a great test for our defense.

  • Marks hair

    Get a sack

  • 303Raider

    Hold these frickin guys!!!

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    stafford > palmer

  • No Mas Diamante

    their kicker made it… ours didn’t…

  • DaTruth91

    i know must of you dont notice it….but the raiders defense is playing really good

  • Just Fire Baby

    12 play drive for Detroit, with a FG attempt.

    Dink and dunk and should they fire their OC?

  • Marks hair

    Go root for the Lions then.

  • 303Raider

    The D is the better unit, no question so far….

  • DJ Johnny

    But 30 yds. apparently too much to ask for Jano today.

  • Plunketthead

    D looked great if you take away the two drive extending penalties

    He already is.

    Let’s go offense. Score a TD!!

  • Marks hair

    Tolefson over burris tonite?

  • Plunketthead

    The O is just warming up. Top 5 O this year easily

    palmer = top ten QB, close to top 5

  • Just Fire Baby

    stafford > palmer

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

    LOL…you don’t say???

    Didn’t Stafford become the 4th guy EVER to throw for 5,000 yards last year?

  • No Mas Diamante

    he’s a troll riff. ignore

  • Plunketthead

    Defense has ruled most preseason games this year. Thats the way it usually works.

  • Marks hair

    Sp teams…

  • Just Fire Baby

    The guy who had a 97 QB rating and threw for 40 TD’s is better than all but about 5 or 6 QB’s in the NFL.

    ================

    why are you so upset about me admitting this? I doent mean i a lion fan, i only wish we had a qb that played as well as stafford

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Defense looks professional now! Still stupid penalties, though.

  • Marks hair

    Blocking day for dmac

  • DJ Johnny

    I don’t like the way everything just locks up when we get in the redzone.

    Like i said he is better than palmer, not sure why the statement bothers so many people here honestly

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    Dunk*

  • Raider Riff

    What a blitz pickup by DMC!!!

    You know they knew they had a good player when they hand a undrafted FA the #80 in camp.

  • Marks hair

    We weren’t in the red zone. Time to punt.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Like i said he is better than palmer, not sure why the statement bothers so many people here honestly

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

    Because it is like saying Darren McFadden is better than Mikel Leshoure.

    No shat Sherlock. Are you going to tell us that Suh is better than Desmond Bryant and Calvin Johnson is better than DHB too, or are you going to continue your hardon for hating on Palmer?

  • DaTruth91

    u cant forget DMAC, even if you have penalties.

  • RaiderDebo

    Looks like we could have some trouble rushing the passer this year. Wish we had kept Wimbley’s “out of whack” contract in place. Oh well, at least we can say the Oakland Raiders are frugal.
