Replacement refs cost Raiders one final play Monday

The NFL acknowledged that its replacement officials erred in not giving the Raiders an untimed play at the end of the game Monday night.
Rules state that when a game ends on a punt, and the kicking team is the first to touch the ball, the receiving team is permitted one untimed play.
As it turned out, the Chargers downed the punt at the Raiders 5-yard line with no time on the clock. Players and officials walked off the field at that point, without any discussion or ruling.
NFL vice president of officiating Carl Johnson told Yahoo Sports’ Jason Cole that, indeed, the Raiders should have been given one play from their own 5-yard line.
So, not only did the officials not know the rule, Raiders coach Dennis Allen and his staff are guilty of not being aware of the situation.
This isn’t to say the officials cost the Raiders the game. The Raiders would have had to score a 95-yard touchdown and convert the two-point attempt just to tie the game.
Still, you never know.

    With the punting, I’m not sure why they didn’t just go to using all 4 downs and stop punting all together.

    198. Its a loong fuçking list…

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    and can someone tell me why do we have Pryor standing on the sideline in street clothes. A young 23 yr old 6ft 6 qb that can run like the wind 4.3 speed and we cant get this necca on the field?? Dang son!

    I think their might be some confusion about the WCO. A WCO doesnt mean you have to run zone blocking. That is how Shannahan adapted it to fit “his” team.

    When Gruden was here we were a WCO to the core, but if you remember our run offesne was straight power with our huge o-line.

    Barry Sims,Frank Middleton, Barret Robbins, Mo Collins, and Lincoln Kennedy would have floundered in a zone blocking scheme. We didnt try to force feed them a zone scheme, we played to their strengths (incredible size) and mauled pple at the LOS.

    I guess what I’m saying is that one scheme doesnt strictly translate from team to team, you have to adjust to make it yours and fit your people. Every team has their wrinkles. Knapp is force feeding this offense.

    I was thinking the same last night, could have been a safer option the way the D played.idk

  • Twocents

    I was cussing so bad last night that my wife is pissed at me today.
    I have calmed down. We are probably not going to win the division. But I saw some reasons for optimism.
    I say cut it loose, go with the young guys and take some chances.

    Armchair,

    I couldn’t agree with you more about our offense. Just doenst fit our personnel, bottom line. Why people are over looking this is beyond me.

    Look at what the Patriots did with their young TE’s. They were strictly a spread offense from top to bottom. They draft two bad @ss tight ends and all of a sudden they are a two TE team creating match up nightmares.

    They molded their offense around their offensive talent, not the other way around. Good coaches play to their players strengths.

    &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    Thats because Tom Brady is a first ballot hall of famer who can operate any system. Bellecheat would not be able to do that without a hall of famer at QB for ten years plus.

    FIRE KNAPP NOW!

    Palmer said in the interview that they were not loading the box and were playin the deep ball instead. Well then how can they explain DMCs 2 yard per carry? I will tell ya, it was because of Knapp and the schitty ZBS, its a fact DMC is not a fit in the ZBS PERIOD

    FIRE KNAPP NOW

  • purvisman

    They had to know this was likely with Ford which means I’m missing something about injuries, PUP list, salaries and whatnot that made it more advantageous to do it this way.

  • canadianraider

    cheers purvisman….we all have our opinion and i respect urs..but top 10 ??????

    rodgers…brady….brees…newton…stafford…eli and peyton manning…romo(maybe)..rivers…big ben….ryan….schaub….cutler….flacco..and even a young rg3 and luck….all ahead of palmer…thats about 15 ahead of palmer…too much for the picks we gave up…thats my opinion

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Gotta wonder if Ford wants out too.

    Was never happy with the Campbell situation.

    187. No. 2yds a carry.
    They lived in our backfield.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    A 2yd average is not a good thing but I don’t believe that we should be running McFadden down the middle and Goodson is no replacement for Bush.

    In the first half that I saw, we were definitely moving the ball and the OL was a big part of that.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Allen basically called him out when the results of his MRI came back.

    I think Ford wants out like Murph.

  • TxRaider210

    Palmer is plenty smart enough to run the offense and change plays as needed, they need to treat him like a veteran and let him rip it.

  • Marks hair

    FIRE KNAPP OUT OF A CANNON AND INTO THE FUÇKING BAY!!

  • JT

    Knapp is just a bad coach!!!

    he didn adjust to the chargers pressure defense

    rollouts?

    Use DMac as a decoy and play pass?

    Draw plays out of the shotgun?

    Misdirection plays?… reverses, bubble screens, etc etc

    Knapp is a stiff!

  • Twocents

    Sometimes guys just aren’t happy with where they are and have to move on. There will be a draft next year.

  • Marks hair

    You dont think ford wants to get lit up at the los??? Why not?

  • http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll180/floresrd508/mcfaddenball.jpg SouthTexasRaider

    I really dont think this zone blocking system is gonna benefit DMac.
    30+ yards rushing in the half?!?
    it might be our O-line, but i think its the blocking system.

  • TxRaider210

    If the fans keep booing Knapp like last night, when he calls crap, DA won’t have much of a choice but to give the wheel to Saunders.

    Well said, we still have time to PUT YOUR PANTS! After the bitterness wears off, all we can take are the positives from the game and move forward.

    ================
    Yeah Tx, it’s a hard thing to do man. I’d be lying if I said my day wasn’t Sh*tty BECAUSE of last night. It stings, and I’m gonna have a bad taste for a few days….. But man, I haven’t seen Burris play better than he did. He was a beast. Heard his name a bunch. Great knife through the line to tackle for loss too. That’s what we need outta our LB’s. I ain’t gonna get into what I didn’t like, that’s been goin on for the last 12 hours.

  • SaintKaufman

    Holy crap, after watching the first 2 punts that Goethel snapped it was Burris that screwed the pooch on both of those. Even if Travis had got the first one off the ground Rosario was going to block it. Burris blocked outside both times and Rosario ran free up the middle with nothing more than a hand check. Easy pickins.

  • purvisman

    Somebody said Allen wanted to interview more candidates for OC but was denied by other teams or was running out of time. I like Allen so far,but that’s no excuse. He had AL SAUNDERS right there, and I’m still wondering whose decision it was to retain him as senior OC asst.?

  • xHOWIE75x

    Plunkett,

    Yes, Brady is a future HOF but it still doesnt justify not playing to your teams’ stregths HOF QB or not.

    Its like we are beating our heads against a brick wall because of the principal that “this offense works anywhere”. We cant do that and expect to succeed.

  • Twocents

    Knapp tried a reverse and Tie One On took his eyes off the ball.

  • BoKnows

    Ford’s having surgery this afternoon in North Carolina.

    Wasn’t it also that Reece tossed the ball to Taiwan’s face?

    Yeah man I heard that, Burris was playing good football out there, really impressed by the kid and the defense as a whole. It was irritating watching Rivers have all day to pass though. Can’t wait to see what they do against a rookie in Miami, maybe a few INT’s/sacks..

  • Dan78

    Why didn’t he have the surgery earlier? Did he just re-injure last week?

  • ArmChair GM

    The entire transition of the offense was handled improperly.

    The majority of our weapons on offense including the QB were drafted using the Al Davis, vertical, stretch the field, power scheme philosophy.

    We do not have the player personnel to fully implement what Knapp is trying to do!

    Saunders should have been made the OC with Knapp as HIS adviser, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!!!

    Then Knapp’s plan could be slowly integrated over the next season or two as we acquire the best players to implement that scheme!

    This entire thing was handled completely AZZ BACKWARDS from the start!!!

    As a result…J Raider has started the OFFICIAL:

    “FIRE”, “DEMOTE”, “RELIEVE OF PLAYCALLING DUTIES” GREG KNAPP” PETITION!!!

    Whatever language you prefer makes no difference to me!!!

If RG3 and Luck are in there because of potential and/or productive years left, then TPryor could be included and Peyton excluded. Romo, despite his play on Wednesday is less than a maybe. Cutler, Schaub, Ryan, Stafford, Newton? and more are in the mix but not demonstrably better. And that’s my opinion.

  • CVRaider

    ArmChair GM, add my name to that list. Fire that POS! Zone blocking is worthless. Mcfadden caught 13 passes! When was the last time an RB in GB, NE, NO, NYG caught 13 passes? Damn im pissed!

    Don’t expect to see Ford back this year…. Think we might need to pick up a Wr …. At least for some depth… Moore should be back Sunday…
