Halftime: Broncos 13, Raiders 7

Carson Palmer completed 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards, including a beautifully conceived 6-yard left screen for the touchdown, as the Raiders got within 13-7 with 1:59 left in the half.

The drive took 6:33 off the clock and was the longest of the season for the Raiders.

The Raiders took advantage of a spectacular diving interception by Phillip Adams in the end zone when the Broncos appeared poised to go up 20-0.

Denver drove to the Oakland 49 before a Mike Mitchell sack helped force a Broncos punt with 20 seconds left in the half.

    GIO stinks man.

    Surprised he didn’t pull up with that Gio Hammy thing, lol.

  • RaidingTexas

    Two score game. Man, that opening drive failure hurts.

    Yeah the team gave up on the coach LMAO at these haters

    Now, here’s another opportunity.

  • The Oracle

    Points:
    1. Adams has just shown the best hands of any secondary player on the team…and that is sad.
    2. Huff is not hurt…he got pulled for shiatty play…the only thing I can say “thanks” to this staff for.
    3. My support for Palmer is slowly waning…bad picks like his Bengals story. Moore was all alone on the sideline.
    But worse, the throw was BAD.
    4. Notice Broncos aren’t going to the right consistently now that Huff is out…
    5. My DHB support is waning as well…he is regressing. That is a surprise to me cause I love his work ethic. But I see now that his ethic is being sabotaged by his skill…which needs better coaching and reps.Everything is pointing to coaching.
    6. Am I being facetious if I say I would rather have the D-line drop into coverage than try to pressure?
    7. Fellas, make sure you realize that the current staff dropped us to rock bottom because of cap issues and purpose.Comparing anything to this year will look like progress in 2013. Do not be fooled.
    8. The fallacy that is the Raiders is why I am not sitting in section 141 tonight. And I am a fool for the Raiders.That, says alot.
    9. Take the LIABILITIES out and the game momentum has just changed. Adams, coming of a concussion, is playing better than Huff ever has, healthy.

    Guys, I am trying to stay positive. Really I am.

    Go RAIDERS!!!

    Palmer is way better than you fools give him credit for. He makes a lot of good throws that you guys just take for granted.

    Not just the two bombs to Streater in the last two games, but a bunch of 20 yard ins and outs.

    Everyone assumes Palmer is just a garbage time stats compiler. But it’s not true. Palmer has 148 passing in the first half tonight. He’s averaging 138 in the first halves of games this season and 156 in the second half. Really not a huge disparity.
    ————

    He also makes the game deciding int a lot
    Atl,Tampa, Cle,
    That’s where my frustration comes in. He makes a terrible choice at worst time.

    ——-

    Way to conveniently ignore how many of those INTs were a result of the WR’s running the wrong routes.

    DLess is the laziest route runner Ive seen in a while. Im starting to hate the kid.

    ————
    He maybe, but Palmer should know that and take that into consideration when throwing the timing route. Sucks but true. Like I said earlier I would be happy to be wrong about Carson.
    He reminds me of the year we had Jeff George. Look at his stats. You would have thought we were 12-4 not 4-12. The following year George is hurt and we run through scabs and go 8-8 in grudens first year. George gone the next year for Gannon and we are still trying to get back to those days. We need a leader under center and Palmers not it.

    ———

    Agreed, Palmer isnt the leader we need.

    But dont hold it against him that he’s not “taking DLess’ lazyness into consideration”.

    —————
    Manning would

    ——–

    How?

    How the fvck is a QB supposed to compensate for a lazy WR.

    What Manning would do is ring his neck on the sideline and get the guy benched if he didnt shape up. Thats where your leadership point is valid.

    But as for what Palmer is supposed to do on that out route, if DLess runs a crisp route, he is able to make that catch.

    STFU you f8ckin b1tch, It doesn’t matter whether there was a penalty on the play or not, you got to make plays when the ball hits you right on the chest, and btw I’m not the one who started this your f8ck buddy brought it upon himself
