End 3rd qtr: Raiders 13, Falcons 13

Atlanta drew even in the third quarter but the Raiders defensive forced a 20-yard Matt Bryant field goal in a goal-to-go situation to keep it anyone’s game going into the fourth quarter.

John Abraham hit Carson Palmer with a blindside sack that defensive end Ray Edwards recovered and took to the 2-yard line. Atlanta would never get any closer than the 1, with Rolando McClain stuffing Jason Snelling on third-and-inches following an Oakland neutral zone infraction.

    when is crunch time?

    Did your Patriots and Ravens win in crunch time?

    Your logic is getting worse by the minute.

    Texans would beat the crap out of the Ravens and their 27th-ranked D.
    ——————–
    last I checked NE and Bmore advanced in the playoffs while the texans and bungles you speak of were one and done. and the bungles lost to CLE today lol and Hou will lose to GB. But since you say they are powerhouse teams lets hear you predict one to go to the SB.

    No, just amused. It’s always funny when a complete inferior thinks he’s as good as me. Fun times, indeed.

    Palmer was crap against Fins, too. We should be 3-2. Heck 4-1 if not for Condo getting hurt in week one.

    Hilarious meltdown indeed, Chris. If you criticize him, you’ll get to know his sockpuppets real well too. I remember getting into it with MR, then BAM, out of left field here comes Alberta Bigloads tryin’ to crawl up my azz.

    Lol, can’t wait.

  • bigsnow81

    Palmer did everything he could after the INT. This game came down to a 55 yard FG. If anything it was the defensive play calling at the end of the game.

  • AmysInCharge

    NFL reality,..at the end of the day the Niners still in first, the Raiders are as well,..for the top draft pick in 2013.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    We should really consider trading McFadden. He will not be “our Marshall Faulk”. Marshall almost never went down at first contact. You just look at McFadden and he drops.

    —————————

    Now that’s just foolish. Campbell went down and that’s why Palmer is here. There’s no vindication.

    Palmer did make a very costly mistake today, and that INT was all on him. But the defense still had a chance at the end to hold and send it to OT, but failed. It’s not all on Carson.

    Palmer isn’t the problem….JC wasn’t shocking the world when he went down.
    Palmer will get better and this team COULD get to 500 by wek 8 if they play like they did today.
    Much better showing than I expected…

  • ChrisinNC

    Sully, what is this “we” trash? Whiners have DMac now? And Palmer? Sheesh, what did I miss in the past few hours??

    A beat down from the Giants is what all the smack talk got the 49ers fans.

    quit saying WE you flag waving niner fan. it’s obvious you’ll never leave the blog even tho 99.9% of the fans would love it.

    you say all the stuff you say and then have the nerve to say “we” in regard to the raiders?

    have the backbone to stand up for your team…the niners.

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

    I’m not as down on him as MR, but McFadden is NOT an elite back. He’s a good system back, and ours is not his system. It just isn’t. The ZBS relies on backs who will hit the hole when they’re supposed to, and DMAC always hits it early or late. He’s better in angle-blocking, where exact timing isn’t as important.

  • AmysInCharge

    Big hopefully no Raider fan taunts Niner fan,..they will easily pull out the 1-4 card,..and that will end that. Niners in 1st place still. Word.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    McFadden is not our Marshall Faulk. Will never be anything close to it. Faulk never went down on first contact. Always shook the first defender. Usually it was the 3rd guy that would tackle him. McFadden hears footsteps he goes down.

    Let’s talk college QB’s. Palmer clearly will not be the next Rich Gannon. Jim Plunkett? Cut your tongue off. He’s been here over a year, had an entire offseason, and it’s still 1 step forward 2 steps backward. The window has closed. Raiders need to start thinking long term with the QB position immediately. Palmer is not the answer.
    ————-

    Palmer hasnt taken a step back he’s just in the wrong O if this was HUES O we WOULD be 4-1 or 5-0 playing power football that everyone is crying for.

    That’s admirable. Rather than these fair weather fans who flip flop between the Bay. I sure hope all Whiner fans aren’t like Amy/Sully.
    ==================================
    LOL Do you know that you’ve posted a couple dozen posts ALL ABOUT THE 49ERS. Not one post about the Raiders. You actually are sitting there watching the Niner game because you got slapped down? You say you don’t care about the Niners but we just MADE YOU SIT AND WATCH FOR HOURS??

    You’re right, Chris. This is real football the Giants are showing out there. Taking it to the Niners, smash mouth style. The Giants OWN the Niners.

    Raiders also showed us real football against an undefeated Super Bowl favorite on the road, just came up short.

    When a player doesn’t live up to the hype, all’s fair. McFadden will never be more than an average back. He’s always gone down easily. Always fumbled. Always been injury prone. Watch. He won’t finish out the year.

    Giants punching the Niners right in the mouth. Smash mouth football, here. This is why the Niners won’t get to the Super Bowl. Giants will own them again when the time comes then Niner fan will threaten their own players.

    Maybe some Niner fans just love watching Faider fans in pure misery,…maybe they enjoy seeing you cry and snivle,..on your way to a 1-15 year. One theory.
