304

Halftime: Panthers 14, Raiders 3

Cam Newton scored from 3 yards out following an interception by Luke Kuechly to put the Panthers up 14-3 with 17 seconds left in the half.

The Raiders appeared to have gotten a break when Graham Gano missed a 48-yard field goal attempt, with Carolina failing to score after having a drive extended by two controversial penalty calls on Oakland.

However, when Oakland got the ball back, Matt Leinart, subbing for the injured Carson Palmer, threw two quick incompletions _ neither close to his target _ and was picked off by Kuechly on third-and-10.

DeAngelo Williams ran 22 yards with a screen pass to the 7 and Newton scored two plays later.

Oakland scored on a 21-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski, with the Raiders faltering in the red zone and settling for the field goal.

    ————————-
    Downfield is not in Knapp’s DNA

  • VanHeathen30

    WTF WAS THAT?
    Worst play calling and execution in the league right now.

  • Try Some Reality

    Any excuse makers left in here? Got all excited after beating the KC cupcakes. Now what? lol

    Mark won’t stand for this sh1t. Heads will roll…

  • Al_is_theraiders

    where are all the slow big receivers? lmao…stoopid muthas

  • RaiderRetribution

    I have never seen so many screen passes completed for negative yards in a season, let alone in a game.

  • Marks hair

    Dink dunk dinky dunk…

  • J Hill

    Leinart isn’t even looking down the field. SCARED after that int.

  • Thec

    screen plays, thats all you got knapp…

    The semi’s can call better plays than knapp for 1/10th the cost

  • Derek

    3 screens in a row from the 30. My god ! what a pathetic coaching staff

  • Raider Riff

    I cannot remember another time when I was so pissed at this team.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Mark MUST fire reggie and coaching staff.

    continuity is important — with the right staff.

    this staff would be death to retain.

  • RockyMountainRaider

    Football but going backwards, hmmm interesting concept

  • Chris in NY

    Defense is actually playing pretty good today, but not only is the offense failing, but they’ll soon sap any wind out of the sails of the defense. Expect a couple of long Carolina TDs this half.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Panthers just need to feed DeAngelo this half!

    ***

    LOL @ Dakota

    GB is blowing out TN. hope they put in the #2 QB for fear Rodgers will get injured

  • BumpNRun

    Unless DirtKnapp’s playcalling takes them out of field goal range, in which case the run, run, short pass, FG doesn’t work. Fvcking absolute disaster.

  • Thec

    Papa just said said everything liono is throwing is horizontal….lol

  • big pep

    We may not have the dumbest players in the nfl, but we sure have the dumbest coaching staff, bar none.

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    The game is there for the having. Knapp won’t have it.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    I would fire the entire regime Reggie down, purely to retain Pryor (and taiwan, chekwa, ausberry) and give them a chance.

  • VanHeathen30

    Leinart is GARBAGE!
    Not having TP ready to play Ina season that has been over for 2 months is another example of Gross Negligence by the staff

  • SLAYER

    TWO STRAIT GAMES THERE WILL NOT BE A TD. NOT ALLENS OR KNAPPS FAULT. BLAME THE GENERAL MANAGER THAT YOU GUYS ALL WANTED. MERRY CHRISTMAS. 666

    Heads better roll.

    Im over it.

    This stubborness and unwillingness to play TP has sealed the deal for me.

    Fire DA now. It looks like sabotage out there.

  • rudegruden

    Enough, knapp needs to go now. This is just awful.

    And for all you Palmer haters. Stfu from now on. This offense without him is a joke.

  • Marks hair

    That cheifs win was so fùcking stupid… play tp.. get the best pick.. whats wrong with you àssholes?

  • severeraiderz

    With this same roster how much would Hue Jackson have us up right now?

  • stablersbeard

    Nice… 3rd & 11….
    Let’s change it up with a pass to the line of scrimmage.

    Always a check-down because Knapp doesn’t have a play in his thin book that’s designed to get a receiver open down the field…

  • Tow Mater

    This ain’t football. Got to gett’er done. Fire the staff. They don’t know football. Ain’t it obvious? Train wreck. No balls in the sack. Staff has got to go.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Cam is missing a lot of throws right now, need to get an INT

  • VanHeathen30

    Knapp’s whole offensive scheme is Hirizontal

  • Thec

    I am ok with running McMums outta town, “His guy” sucks

  • J Hill

    There is no way our OC thinks about how to attack other teams based on THEIR weaknesses. Just believes in his plays.

  • Derek

    They have no fear of leinart. They know he can’t throw down field or run. Leinart is more afraid of his own lack of skill than the opposition.

  • VanHeathen30

    Burris whiffs on the safety

  • RaidO

    FIRE DA!

    We already know Leinart sucks. Time to give TP a chance.

  • SR Raider

    Take this playbook, burn all copies and lobotomize Knapp. Let there be no way this can ever happen again

  • Raider Riff

    Fvck you Burris.

    burris svcks aszs oh wait he is a rookie…he just licks aszs

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    Imo, the coaches are doing all this because they know Gruden is coming ;)

    Sabotage as someone said before.

  • Try Some Reality

    There is no hope for our offense. The only thing I’m looking for now is to give Newton the CHUMP something to remember us by.

  • CVRaider

    Screen, stretch, screen, screen, …. Missed tackle by burris.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Burris never breaks down and wraps up, just flys 110% through every mised tackle.

  • J Hill

    Cmon Burris.

    Players need to make plays.

  • Thec

    Fire DA now. It looks like sabotage out there.

    Violent hands says DA is a double agent…

  • Derek

    DA is a visor wearing, no coaching pencil necked POS who has no business coaching the Raiders.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    murph!

  • SLAYER

    IF BURRIS MAKES A HARD STICK IN THE ENDZONE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FLAGGED. 666

    ……

    We’d be fighting for home field right about now. Playoff bound. Instead of circling the sespool. Staff was a mistake.
