    Method, where you smoking the crack last night when you said Raiders and Miami score would be 34-31? No way will there be that many points scored.
    **************************

    Nope sober as can be……but you see what I said how the pts would be scored….I think both teams will turn it over and ST plays will go down….everyone predicting low scoring game and I’ll go with something closer to 30…I dont think the Raider D is really that good…SD really aint schit

    I’ll stick with 34-31

    ———————-

    You think we will both put up that many points mostly with ST play? That is a bold statement.

    So far, their ST play is supposedly very good. Hoffman has to be worried right now. That is a key matchup in this game.

    Their D vs our O is a battle of strengths. D is generally a matter of hustle. O is generally a matter of execution. Hustle is more consistent than execution, so that is why D usually prevails. We need to execute today.

    Their O vs our D seems to be a mismatch, no matter how overrated you may think our D is. There will be no excuse for letting a rookie beat us in this matchup.

    We could win this close and low scoring, even with doing everything right (IF there D is that good). Or we could win this in a blowout. But under no circumstances should we lose this game.

    Did you blame Gruden for Gannon getting hurt by Siragusa? No. So why blame the DA for a freak injury like Condo’s. It’s just not a common thing.
    $$$$$$$$$$

    I blamed DA & Hoffman for an injured Raider, or I’m blaming them for not having a player prepared (Goethlel). It’s simple so don’t make it rocket science.
    It’s a fair question to ask our coaches:
    If our backup LS doesn’t practice during the week, what else are we not practicing?

    Riff.

    Just so you know, I enjoy the back and forth, no hard feelings right?.

    That being said, you told us that on MNF the Chargers were taking away the deep ball by playing 2 deep Safeties and we could not run right at them because their LB’s were selling out to stop the run, so Knapp kept calling plays over the soft middle which was wide open.

    Question is, wasn’t that SD’s Defensive game-plan all along? and didn’t we play right into their hands by taking what was there?.

    You know, they were probably happy to let us dink and dunk and pick up some yards, limit us to FG’s if possible……..as long as we didn’t establish the running game or make big-plays down the field?.

    ————————

    It may seem fair to ask. But Im trying to reassure you that NO TEAM ever goes into a game with a trick play like a reverse, without it being planned for. It’s a play that you set up a drive in advance for.

    And rarely do teams ever give their backup longsnapper any reps during the week. I cant remember seeing it. But I didnt play on ST either. But everything Ive read and watched in videos this week has other former players saying that it is a freak occurance that most teams are probably ill prepared for.

    You only have so much practice time with the players. You must use it as wisely as possible. Practicing a backup LS is never high on a priority list.

    But lets tie this thing back to the orignal topic. If we can punt and we lose the field position battle then entire 2nd half, our OC and DC’s hands are tied.

    We should have stopped punting after the 2nd botch. But damn, you try to make that call while on national TV. You’d piss your pants trying.

    Either way, if you cant win field position, it makes it dang hard to score TDs. But if you want to continue to beat a dead drum, continue looking to blame Knapp. Boo him at every game. Hold up signs. Get in his head. Distract him and Reggie from doing their job. Make the Coliseum like an away game for him. That will surely fix things right?

    Or maybe we should demand our players do the simple stuff like stay onsides and stop fumbling in critical junctures. I guess Im crazy for expecting superstars to be able to do the basic stuff.

    If history has taught us anything, it has taught that the Raiders can make ANY QB (rookie or otherwise) look like a hofamer.

    Raiders will always do all they can to keep their opponent in the game…no matter how ‘bad’ we think that team is…and how bad they actually are, the Raiders prove they can indeed be worse on any given Sunday.

    THAT has been the trend, and despite all our hope that it was gonna change, so far (as evidenced against SD)it hasn’t. SAME ol same ol as Dilfer pointed out.

    I know ‘it’s just one game’ and we should ‘relax’, but when does it become more than that? After today, is it “hey, it’s only two games man..we’ve got 14 left”.?

    Gotta win today. I don’t care if it’s by 30 or 1 pt.

  • DJ Johnny

    110,C’mon Riff it’s easy to create a scenario and excuse if we lose today.

    It’s and east coast game with an early start. Raiders have to fly clear across country after playing Mon. nite…they may be gassed in the 2nd half (which was one of the big excuses after Buffalo last yr.)

    Plus, man it’s hot down there and Miami is better than what they look on paper. AND..they just ‘have our number’.

    IF we lose those excuses will be utilized.

    ———–

    Hard feelings with you? Not at all. My life is great. Its sunny and Im eating Italian pasta tonite. Nobody on a blog is going to get me that bent out of shape.

    I just know youre one of the smarter members here. Ive put things a million different ways to get you to see what is up and yet you still want to find a way to blame Knapp instead of just letting the evidence make the decision for you. It’s not your style.

    But to answer your question….

    SD’s gameplan was indeed that all along. But it is highly likely that they were expecting CP3 to eventually fall into his old ways and not be able to hold back from sending one deep. He did it a couple times in the preseason where he was baited into an INT.

    SD doesnt have a bunch of pro bowlers on their team. They had to try and work with our weaknesses. Testing Palmer’s discipline and shutting down the run were their top two priorities.

    Once they realized that CP3 wasnt taking the bait, they moved the safeties up and the CB’s relaxed a bit. But they never relaxed their LBs. It’s all on tape, go watch it again.

    When they moved the Safeties up, CP3 did what elite QB’s do and he tried hitting them where it hurt. We had guys stretching the field on over half of our pass plays. That is why it is so funny when people call us a dink and dunk WCO. It didnt look like that to me. It looked like a Sid Gilman / WCO hybrid. But in reality, those two systems are more alike than the average fan knows. They both operate on the same principles, just one stretches the field wide, the other deep. Both are intented to dink and dunk until the defense cant take it anymore and they start to tighten things up, then you hit them deep. And you can do it on any play because on every play, someone is going deep. And with a QB of Palmers caliber, he knows before the ball is snapped what the D is trying to do. He rarely gets fooled by a team that lacks talent like SD did. You have to have talent if you really want to disguise things the way Pitt and Baltimore do.

    If a defense ABSOLUTELY refuses to bring their safeties up (which is highly unlikely after youve scored on 3-4 early drives) then any OC will gladly just rack up the field goals. Long dink and dunk drives eventually take their toll on a defense and by the 2nd half, they are tired and the run game will open up. That is why defenses ALWAYS adjust and dont just let another team FG them to death.

    The problem with us is, most teams expect us to implode so they dont have to adjust. We stop imploding and we will start dominating again. We have as much talent as anyone in the league. We may not be deep, but we are beyond capable of a SuperBowl run if we start playing to our potential.

    How is that for a breakdown?

  • DJ Johnny

    Riff,

    That’s a nice breakdown. I agree with the “stop imploding” stuff.

    That’s the problem..we keep doing that.
