The banged-up Oakland Raiders face a daunting task of trying to stop the Baltimore Ravens’ 14-game home winning streak on Sunday. Here’s how some people see the game playing out:

    I bet nothing gets built and Mark will have to stay where he is.

    I wonder if we’ll see Bergs or Willie Smith at RT, and how much will Curry play?

  • fingers

    Plunk… True… Who knows at this point… It’s pretty much outta our hands anyway… I’m a homer ( Bay Area native).. And I’d hate to see them go again….

  • VanHeathen30

    Defending Kanpps use of Reece is pointless…
    SO WHAT if he’s getting used more?
    1 carry a game and 2 catches a game (last season) are NOT going to save this offense. He finally got some action last week after being ignored for most of the 1st half of the season…I hope he ‘OPENS UP’ Marcel’s portion of the playbook and it works, but am leery that it will work out so well…hoping i’m wrong.

    Bergs can’t be any worse than smith has been…

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

    Look, I am not here to defend Knapp or attack you, but this nonsense must end.

    Last year Reece averaged 25 yards a game. 2010, 23 yards a game.

    Not even counting last weeks game, he was averaging 26 yards a game in 2012. Now it is up to 34 p/g.

    He is being used basically the same, if not more now.

    I don’t buy that, either, but for a better reason. Norco said it.

    Good Morning Raider Fans!!!

  • JONGRUDEN2013

    In the Ravens locker room Ray Lewis and John Harbaugh will be screaming and yelling and the place will be rockin getting pumped for the game,..in the Raiders,..well,..DA and Palmer might try and muster up some stupid thing to say like, lets watch the false starts, lets try and get off the field on third down,..but no players will hear it, all with head phones on and tweeting,..the final score will reflect that. Im real.

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

    I think you will see both at RT, Smith the start, Bergs shortly after, and the best performer will get the 2nd half.

    Curry, will be covering kickoffs and in on goalline situations.

    My two cents, we shall see.

  • VanHeathen30

    Yeah…but what are you expecting out of 26 yds a game?
    Not that those numbers wouldn’t have been MORE than the rest of the Offense ran the ball last week…
    I’m bent w/ Knapp cause marcel SHOULD have about 10 touches a week between the ground and air…
    Don’t want ot argue with you either Vegas.
    Just frustrated as f a u k with this team…
    Like i said, I hope marcel BLOWS UP today and helps us get a W…

    I was a little confused about the release of Pat lee.
    After watching some film and seeing his responsibilty in the Doug Martin big runs I can see why they are making an example of him. If D. Martin is even some what contained last sunday the Raiders would likely be 4-4.

    If they are blaming Lee for the Martin runs then they are refusing to acknowledge what is right in front of their face. It’s McClain. The guy is a freaking slug and a liability. Why can’t they see this?

    Look at the tape again (if u can stomach it) and McCLAIN kind of goes up to our lineman and puts his hands on his back as if to be nudging him and then Martin Martin breaks thru and McClain spins around and it’s “bye bye”.

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

    I can agree with this.

    He should have been used more in 2010, 2011 and now 2012.

    But at least we are using him more now than last season, a small step in the right direction.

    At least you don’t hide when you’re wrong. Good thing, ’cause some of us would miss you.

  • Tezooo

    Game day baby! I’m hopping this is one of thoes game the Raiders pull one of these WTF wins over a good team.
    GO RAIDERS!!!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Interesting that on the road we are only 7.5 underdogs.

    That would mean if we were playing in Oakland, we would be 1.5 or 2 point underdogs.

    Seems like Vegas thinks this game will be close, closer than the masses think.

    Baltimore is really, really banged up, worse than us probably.

  • DJ Johnny

    You guys may not want to believe Norco Bob but it is Cork who says when asked directly “yes” he thinks it’s gonna happen.

    I don’t know. I’m for anything that helps make us a winner again.

    I’d prefer the team could stay in Oakland and win and have a new stadium like they deserve, but i don’t see any movement. Maybe u guys see something since you’re out there.

    I hope for the loyal fans out in Oakland they can get it done.

  • fingers

    Lol… I’ve already pulled McClains name off my 55 jersey…. It’s goes with Moss and Russels jerseys….

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    The Panthers already want renovations on their stadium and it was built in 1996. The Raiders are playing in a 46 year old stadium.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I am wearing my #55 as we speak.

  • fingers

    I’ve got # 18 on right now… But at game time I’m switching to 3…

  • BlackSunday

    We gotta get our 6 wins somehow might as well beat the Ravens.

    Anyone expecting MR.Glass(DMAC) back this year our is it Reece/Jones/Stewart for rest of the season.

    Barnes out

  • DJ Johnny

    What the “experts” all said would happen has. DMAC lasted 8 games even when he was trying to avoid injury by stepping out of bounds etc.

    His lower legs (ankles, feet) are just prone to injury.

    3.1 ypc ?

    He was starting to come around a bit though.

    I’m just sick and tired of DMAC. He’s a potential gamebreaker but i’m sick of waiting for him to come around.

  • VanHeathen30

    On the stadium issue..the problem is that Oakland is broke…and even though there are a legion of raider fans in the city proper…a large percentage of the fans buying tickets on Sundays, live in the surrounding communities of Nor Cal, therefore they can’t even vote on any Bond measure or whatnot…
    If they made it an isue for Alameda County votersm which are the ones who built the Coliseum back in the 60′s..there might be a chance. But waiting for Oakland to get things in order and present a proposal is a long shot…
