Halftime: Bengals 24, Raiders 0

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 25th, 2012 at 11:33 am in Oakland Raiders.

Mike Nugent’s 55-yard field goal at the gun gave the Bengals a 24-0 lead in what might be the Raiders’ worst 20 minutes to date.

The score was set up by Carson Palmer’s first interception on a third-and-10 pass slightly behind Marcel Reece, with the ball glancing off Reece’s hands to Chris Crocker. Crocker ran it back 29 yards, with Andy Dalton hitting Mohamad Sanu for 11 yards.

On Cincinnati’s previous possession, Nugent missed a 48-yard field goal after the Raiders failed on third-and-1 and fourth-and-1 on the first time they crossed midfield.

The Raiders are giving ground against both run and pass and big plays are plentiful for the Bengals. May as well gas up the team charter . . .

    WOW a 3 and out

    People need to stop bringing up Al. Al is a legend and built the team that you love, which is more than I can say for a lot of people. Love him or hate him, No team under Al has ever looked this bad. Ever.

    Looks like the came out of the locker room ready to play.

    21-3 would have been a lot nicer than 24-0

    Agreed. I’ve said it many times on this blog, Raiders defensive personnel is geared towards man-to-man schemes.

    Like many complained about the inability of players to adjust to the ZBS scheme on offense, the defense has trouble with the zone concepts.

    Being obvious on defense is what sucks, unless you have a team like the 2000 Ravens. We don’t.

    With our personnel, you need to mix it up on D and be deceptive.

    2 seasons at 8-8 following 7 losing seasons is a laughing stock.

    =========

    That’s what Gruden started with dumba$$, and he broke through the 3rd year. That’s what we should be doing this year, but Chubby Checker hired some pencil-neck geek phag and now we’re battling the queefs for the #1 pick.

    Are you really this stupid?

  • mcfadden20.

    No, nobody took play calling , they are blitzing again to get to Dalton, but pretty soon CIncy will figure it out and call a screen, they still s8ck putting natural pressure

  • Los Raida Locos

    Hues’ gone, and his replacement is better? Hardly.

    John David,

    2006 team was this bad. Even worse.

  • r8eray

    What doesn’t make sense, the Raiders instead of progressing throughout the season have gotten worse and worse!!

    Someone needs to be accountable for this debacle!

    Reggie needs to step up to the plate (man-up) and take action or blame!!!

    Heard Moore has some kind of spinal problem, genetic. Might fall into second. Not sure if there is any truth to this rumor.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Ah, you mean Jon Gruden, who built our team, then destroyed it in Super Bowl 37. The Raiders are still yet to recover, and that’s mostly thanks to Al Davis, not Reggie McKenzie.

  • mcfadden20.

    DHB should have caught that one

    This team still reeks of Al Davis and that is why they still suck so bad. This offseason will be when all those losers on defense will get cut. This season is merely a formality. A dress rehearsal for next season and our cast of characters is horrible.

  • http://www.RAIDERS.com Back-n-Black

    The Raiders have very little talent and had no cap space to acquire any over the offseason.

    They will have to DRAFT their way out of this mess. It will take several years to build the franchise into Reggie’s image.

    Just the way it is… He has already dumped 1/2 the roster from last year and he will continue to turnover this roster until he has TALENT.

  • Marks hair

    Palmers off today

    Chris in ny,

    I saw your ND posts last night and earlier today. Yeah, NDs schedule proves they belong in the big game. The same critics that are biotching now had declared their schedule one of the mist difficult prior to the year starting.

    After warching lsu pretty much beat Alabama and then Texas a&m taking them down I know ND can beat them…he’ll they probably will not make it past Georgia.

    Too bad we have to wait a month and a half for the game lol.

    Hues’ 1-4 down the stretch was all Bresnahan.

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

    WHAT???? What on earth would give you that crazy idea? Of course not! Like these idiot fans swear, it’s all Hue’s fault! Just read some of their genius analysis. Hue is responsible for the defense. Hue is responsible for his owner hiring the defensive coordinator. Can’t you see that? I mean, these geniuses on this blog do.

    What?
    We set an NFL record for 5 years in a row of 11 losses or more.
    That was all on Al.
    If the Raiders were a publicly held organization, Al Davis would have been voted out a decade ago.
    He was just that bad.

    We need a full rebuild. I’ll be honest, I don’t want to wait. I wish we had Gruden. But I don’t know if Gruden would be able to do anything with this heap of limited football talent.

  • jackasspuria

    Drafting a defensive player like Notre Dame’s Manti T’eo could be the right step into rebuilding this decrepit defense.

    I say could because draft picks are crapshoots at best. But, the ND MLB appears solid in all aspects (run, pass, tackling).

  • hellsbells

    Though we had some decent cap space this off season.

  • mcfadden20.

    atleast injury some of the Cincy players, something

    Half the team. Offense got better, defense collapsed.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Why did DHB just let that guy run past him on the screen?

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Gruden’s team in Tampa was better than this the year he got fired. So, I don’t know what we think Gruden could do here.

    Remind me how close that team was to the playoffs.

    Remind me how close this team will be to the playoffs.
