    How many garbage outings is it gonna take to squash the starry-eyed naivety? This team is massively devoid of talent and has severely questionable coaching, at best. You’d barely win against struggling college teams with such garbage, let alone in a professional football league. We need a whole lot of changes to take place before we can hope to merely be competitive with all but the dregs of the NFL(unless they decide not to show up).

  • DJ Johnny

    Everybody so eager to pile it on the one guy who has given his all to get this team in the win column and has been a class act…accepting responsibility for the teams woes whether it’s his “fault” or not.

    It’s like a bunch of wolves circling around their prey.

    You guys are loving this…brimming with cocky, self assuredness that there is no way Palmer can win with this team today and will enjoy every moment of it if we get hammered.

    Great fans.

    Just to show you JFB you’re missing the point…

    Hue/Saunders last season got McFadden, Bush and Jones all involved. Jones had 16 or so carries for 73 yards in his rookie year. He discovered Reece who until then was just like Ausberry is now, uncorked. He got DHB, Ford, Moore, involved. He ran a lot of variation and packages to help expedite the development of rookies. He even got Pryor a snap before Campbell went down. If Campbell hadn’t, we would’ve seen some more Pryor packages. But because he managed to get Palmer, he had to throw everything into him, no time for Pryor, as we were 7-4 and winning the division.

    This year, Knapp/DA have only been able to involve 1-2 playmakers every week. Seen a regress of Jones. Even when McFadden was healthy, and Goodson, he couldn’t find ways to get them all carries, like Hue/Saunders could.

  • Raiderbuck

    Yeah this team is awful and I feel bad for Palmer because we are going to lose this one too. That defense is just terrible. By far the worst in the NFL. I have no hope for this team in it’s current incarnation.

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

    Moore will have a better year this season than last, and Streater is already passing up Ford’s production from last season. DHB will have more TD’s. TE is bigger focal point of our offense. Reece will pass up his last TWO years of production, in about 12 games.

    The biggest difference is McNinny. He sabotaged the season with his inability to adapt to a proven NFL offense.

    Harb also tailored the game plan just for Kappy. He put him in a posistion to make plays and probably didn’t even use a 1/3 of the play book

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Knapp is going to overwork Reece like he did McFadden and get him injured. That’s not smart management of personnel, not showing any trickery either to fool DCs. It’s also BS Knapp saying the defenses were focusing so much on Reece they took him out of it in all those 6 or so weeks. They were focusing on McFadden because Knapp was running everything thru him. Soon as McFadden goes down, what suddenly no ones gonna gameplan against Reece? Suddenly Reece manages to get 190 yards from scrimmage in one game thru 20 carries and 20 targets? BS. It’s Knapp’s one-dimensionality.

    Watch today…wouldn’t surprise if Reece goes down with an injury. So Knapp resorts to throwing the ball 60+ times, and in the process, further injuring Palmer’s arm (which has been wearing out from overuse evident in last weeks game).

    Obviously our defense is also going to be putrid again, it’s the #1 problem.

    So far from you, I am watching for the team to quit on it’s coach, Reece to get hurt, and be losing 49-10 at the end of the 3rd quarter.

    Anything else I should be looking for?

    That was a hell of a catch that NM reciever made against BYU. To bad that was about the only good play NM had all game!

    Good Morning Raider O and others

    I really do recognize that efficient QB play is essential to winning in the NFL.
    It always has been. I say efficient because some teams (Ravens in 2000 and Bucs in 2002) won with exceptional defense and an O that made few mistakes and ran the ball. Regardless of whether you are passing 60% or running 60% you need to win at the line of scrimmage. Let me try this.

    9 of your starting 22 (41%) plays exclusively in the box.
    OLines create time and space. Dlines destroy time and space.
    THAT IS WHAT THE GAME IS ABOUT. The rest of the pieces fill in the gaps.
    A runner does not have the space and he looks like Dmac in Oakland; not Arkansas.
    A linebacker fighting off Olineman that get to the second level looks like McClain in Oakland; not Alabama.
    A QB without time looks like Brady against the Giants in a Super Bowl; not Brady against Oakland.

    Do you think we are going to be a consistently, strong, winning franchise building our lines with low round draft picks or free agents?
    Taken to another extreme, do you think we will be able to beat our competition when they consistently use high picks to build this part of their team?
    The law of averages says we lose that battle.

    These are typically 270-320 pound athletes that need to have the agility and quickness of college level skill players. Do you really think you are likely to find premier or at least very good lineman in the fifth to seventh round or packing out at Wal Mart THAT ARE BETTER THAN WHAT OTHER NFL TEAMS HAVE ON A CONSISTENT BASIS?
    Really?
    You are certainly entitled to your opinion but I would strongly suggest that the laws of probability are against us. Better yet, we have a classic example of what that strategy gets us; The 2012 Oakland Raiders.

    Our lines have been built in large part by lower round picks and free agent castoffs (as Tim Brown said, a team will find a way to keep the players it really wants). Wiz and Houston to my knowledge are the only 2nd round Raider picks we have.) We need to build through the draft and expend enough high round draft picks on lineman to ensure superior line play. The way the Raiders used to do it.
    We have to expend enough high round picks till we can consistently win the line of scrimmage.
    We have 10 years of evidence to show that what we have been doing DOES NOT WORK!

    I was right last week, you scoffed. I said we’d get blown away, the saints would ease off, and that davis wont stand by after another humiliation, that he’ll start making waves.

    Great coaches find ways to maximize production from the talent available on their roster.

  • http://repealitnow.org MistaBrown

    O,
    Your hero Harbough has opened up a can of worms benching Smith. Once defenses start game planning The Beak (Kap) he wont look so good. He is on tape now he might get by today playing NO but he is going to hit a brick wall.

    Remember I told you this….

    Now go wipe your chin.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Oh JFB, also watch for Palmer’s waning arm becoming further apparent. Did you not notice it last week? So many underthrows, lacking zip, players having to come back to ducks, etc.

    Watch Knapp overuse Palmer in his “legacy” game, plus knapp abandoning the run early, and see that arm further wear out.

  • mcfadden20.

    Bring on the bungles ,”legacy bowl” is on , with that said
    76 -13 I gave extra 3 points to both teams cuz looks like weather isn’t that bad so it shouldn’t affect the kicking game

  • mcfadden20.

    Raiders 76 – bungles 13. Palmer wins the first ever legacy bowl

  • Just Fire Baby

    Go Raiders!!

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

    Good morning Charlie.
    Great post, but don’t forget that those 2 teams were special. One of the best defenses in the history of the league.
    Look at the last few teams to win the SB
    Giants
    Pats
    Steelers
    Saints
    Colts
    GB
    They are all passing teams.

  • DJ Johnny

    “Legacy Game” ONLY IF we lose.

    Everybody will be calling it just a meaningless reg season game in the unlikely event we were to win.

  • mcfadden20.

    Couldn’t sleep all night waiting for the legacy bowl game

    #75…

    I think Kaepernick’s wow will drop a little once DCs gameplan against him.

    However…Harbaugh has now developed successfully: Luck @Stanford, Smith @SanFrancisco, Kaepernick @SanFrancisco.

    There’s no reason to doubt Harbaugh’s prowess at QB development. His understanding of how to expedite it, which is what Cowher started with Big Ben’s rookie season and others have followed since….giving them small portions of the playbook, small assignments like one-side of the field, and gradually lifting the bar as they absorb.

  • mcfadden20.

    Last time put on my McFadden jersey I got mixed results I will put it on maybe backwards or something and see what happens

  • mcfadden20.

    You guys enjoy the game and keep your cool …..

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Have a good game everyone. I will be watching the game intently, no time for posting, and will chat with you all later in the night.

  • DJ Johnny

    Palmer comes into battle today with one arm tied behind his back and a six shooter with one bullet…which will most likely be dropped in the endzone as has happened THIRTEEN TIMES already.

    Don’t worry. He has the worst defense in the NFL guarding the fort for him.

    Nope. We can safely say that he is NOT Superman…able to leap horrible defenses, porpous lines, and receivers who drop easy td passes in the endzone with a single bound.

    Damn him.

    Bring back Boller.

    Hilarious, all those guys you mentioned were part of a VERSATILE attack that Hue put together. They can put up their stats in meaningless all they want, this offense is nowhere near what was Hue did. All Knapp-time has ever done is proven to suck, and he lived up to it again.

  • JONGRUDEN2013

    Enjoy the Raider game people,..due to Amy telling me to my face Jon Gruden will not be coming back I will get rid of this name Im using,…yes I am heart broken about it but will move on. She also assured me in no way will Reggie or Dennis be in job jeapardy at all, even if they go winless in 2013…Iv already renewed for next year, looking forward to being at the Browns game even though we will be blown out today,…and for sure lose to the Browns as well,…its easy to be a fan when your 9-1 kids,..times like these the Raiders are finding out who their fans are,..see ya next Sunday Brien.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    DA is nothing more then a chump.

    Reggie needs to hire as many guys from the Stanford Defense/ Notre Dame defense as he can. Starting with Teo’.

    Smart, physical , disciplined football players.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Disappointed we had to put up with two years of Boller, and never got any quotes, in-game TV shots or controversary out of his wife.

    I was kind of hoping we would get an Esther Canseco/Anna Benson deal out of it.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Looks like a halfway full stadium.

    A few minutes before gametime and DA is giving his emotional Knute Rockne inspirational speech:

    “Ok guys. All we ask is you go out there and do your jobs today. The coaches have worked hard to put you guys in a position where you might be able to be in the position where at the end of the day you might be able to be in a postion where you may be able to have some success”
