Final: Chargers 24, Raiders 21

The Raiders closed the books on a 4-12 season Sunday by rallying from a 17-point deficit only to fall 24-21 to the San Diego Chargers before 66,486 fans at Qualcomm Stadium.

A blocked punt by Coye Francies, recovered by Kaelin Burnett, helped set up Terrelle Pryor’s second touchdown pass, a 5-yard flip to Denarius Moore with 1:52 to play.

San Diego’s Michael Spurlock, who opened the scoring with a 99-yard touchdown return on the opening kickoff, then recovered an onsides kick with 1:51 to play. The Chargers then killed the clock to finish 7-9.

San Diego quarterback Phillip Rivers threw touchdown passes of 11 yards to Antonio Gates, 34 yards to Danorio Alexander and Nick Novak kicked a 30-yad field goal as the Chargers finished 7-9.

Pryor, in his starting debut, broke an 10-quarter touchdown drought with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey in the second quarter and had a 3-yard touchdown run with 7:43 left and the Raiders trailing 24-7.

Pryor, however, struggled with his passing and didn’t get a lot of help from his receivers, with at least three dropped passes plus some other opportunities where the throws were off-target but still could have been caught.

Pryor completed 13 of 28 passes for 150 yards, one touchdown, and one costly interception by Quentin Jammer in the end zone on a first-half pass with too much loft intended for Heyward-Bey. He also ran for 49 yards on nine carries, mostly on scrambles rather than designed runs.

If there was a turning point from the Raiders, it came after Pryor directed a 12-play, 80-yard scoring drive that resulted in the touchdown pass to Heyward-Bey.

Pryor had a 10-yard pass to Rod Streater and a 17-yard completion to Brandon Myers, both on the move, and got the Raiders to the 9-yard line with an 8-yard scramble before the touchdown with 12:11 left in the quarter.

When the Raiders most needed a stop, San Diego embarked an epic 14-play, 81-yard drive that took 9:23 on the clock before Rivers threw the touchdown pass to Gates.

Included on the drive was a 6-yard run by upback Eric Weddle out of punt formation out of fourth-and-1, as well as 5-yard defensive penalties on the Raiders for encroachment (Tommy Kelly) and offsides (Lamar Houston).

Oakland’s second touchdown came after an eight-play, 76-yard drive which included one of the few long-distance hookups Pryor managed all day, a 38-yard strike to Streater to the San Diego 3-yard line.

    The “theory” that the D played so good at the end of the season seems popular around here. Here are my points in response:

    Looking at the last 5 games for a sign that Dennis Allen should remain head coach. I dont think they played well the Cleveland game, where they gave up 475 yards, including a Brandon Wheedens career high 364 yards.

    They still gave up 26 to DEN and 428 yards, including 119 to Knowshon Moreno, his season high. He had 481 all season. I also feel Fox “took his foot off the gas” just a little that game, but even if thats not true, that wasnt “playing well” by any means.

    The big 15-0 shutout against KC that you all like to point to as the “improvement”, I agree they played “better”, but I also saw KC drive down the field with ease, and get into the red zone on 2 occasions and both times electing to not kick the FG. So that shut out is misleading. Not to mention, it was against Brady Quinn and the team that has earned the #1 pick, due to how horrible they were, but if you and DA wanna high five each other over that one, cool, I’ll give you that game.

    Last 2 games against equally bad teams this season in CAR and SD. The D played well enough to win, but not great. Hardly well enough for me to go along with the myth that the defense has been playing so much better the last few games. And definitely not well enough to erase the fact that on the season, they gave up 443 points. Most since 1961, before Al came along.

    All in all, Dennis Allen took an 8-8 team to 4-12. Went 1-7 in the last 8 games. Stuck with Knapp all season, and never took it upon himself to make changes, even with last years coordinator and offensive assistant, Al Saunders on staff.

    We can do better than this guy. We had better than him last year, and the year before.

    Will the first person who truly believes in his heart and mind that Dennis Allen is the BEST man for this job please stand up?

    I hear the arguments to keep him. They just arent very convincing.

    Greg Knapp’s second stint as the Oakland Raiders’ offensive coordinator might be over after one disappointing season.

    According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the team is expected to fire Knapp.

    Oakland finished 18th in total offense this season at 344 yards per game, but the Raiders ranked 28th in rushing with 88.8 yards per game. The lack of a ground attack contributed to the team frequently falling behind, which in turn led to increasing passing stats as the Raiders played catch-up. Oakland ranked eighth with 255.2 passing yards per game, although the team’s average of 6.9 yards per completion tied for 19th.

    Knapp also was the Raiders’ offensive coordinator in 2007-08. He also has held the same post with the San Francisco 49ers (2001-03), the Atlanta Falcons (2004-06) and the Seattle Seahawks (2009). He served as the Houston Texans’ quarterbacks coach in 2010-11.

    The Raiders finished the season 4-12 under first-year head coach Dennis Allen. They will get the third, fourth or fifth pick in the 2013 draft.

    Contracts Reggie inherited PRIOR to getting under the cap for 2012:
    DT Richard Seymour $14,068,000
    QB Carson Palmer $12,500,000
    LB Kamerion Wimbley $11,850,000
    CB Stanford Routt $10,785,334
    FS Michael Huff $9,828,750
    RB Darren McFadden $9,478,833
    DT Tommy Kelly $8,874,266
    WR Darrius Heyward-Bey $8,159,000
    LB Aaron Curry $5,757,500
    P Shane Lechler $4,900,000
    TE Kevin Boss $4,750,000
    DT John Henderson $4,750,000
    PK Sebastian Janikowski $4,500,000

    LB Rolando McClain $3,640,000

    FS Hiram Eugene $2,500,000
    DE Lamarr Houston $1,116,250
    SS Mike Mitchell $965,500
    ===================================

    Dont’t get caught up in the numbers, Al used to renegotiate these contracts every year.Some of those have already done so.

    For example:

    DT Richard Seymour – $14,068,000 lowered his $7.5 million fully guaranteed base salary to the league minimum ($925,000) with the remaining $6.575 million converted to a guaranteed roster bonus that will be treated as a signing bonus for salary cap purposes. Seymour’s adjusted base salary is fully guaranteed and another season, with a $7.5 million base salary and $7.5 million roster bonus, was tacked onto Seymour’s contract to allow the roster bonus to be prorated over the maximum allowable number of years (five). That $7.5 million is not guaranteed, and what looks like a $37.5 million, five-year contract is, for all intents and purposes, a one-year guaranteed deal for $7.5

    QB Carson Palmer $12,500,000

    LB Kamerion Wimbley $11,850,000 – Released

    CB Stanford Routt $10,785,334 Released

    FS Michael Huff – $9,828,750 base salary base salary was reduced to $700,000, which is fully guaranteed, with the remaining $3.3 million combined with his $4 million roster bonus to create a guaranteed $7.3 million roster bonus that will be treated like a signing bonus for salary cap purposes. Two additional years with $4 million base salaries and $4 million roster bonuses were added to allow the 2012 guaranteed roster bonus to be prorated over five seasons.

    RB Darren McFadden $9,478,833

    DT Tommy Kelly $8,874,266

    WR Darrius Heyward-Bey $8,159,000

    LB Aaron Curry $5,757,500 Released

  • No Mas Diamante

    It has not been a pretty season for the Oakland Raiders, but owner Mark Davis is maintaining patience.

    CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora cited league sources in reporting that Davis does not intend to fire first-year coach Dennis Allen or first-year general manager Reggie McKenzie but will make moves to fortify the front office during the offseason.

    La Canfora reported that Davis is enamored with Ray Anderson, the NFL’s vice president of football operations, and sources believe the longtime league executive might jump at the right opportunity. Anderson has Bay Area ties and significant experience working as an agent and at the team level.

    The Raiders (4-10) have stumbled on the field, but McKenzie, especially, is well-respected around the NFL. He took over a talent-poor team that was stripped of draft picks in 2012. More time is needed to evaluate the current regime, but adding someone with Anderson’s experience might further help an organization that continues to turn the page on the Al Davis era.

    They still gave up 26 to DEN and 428 yards, including 119 to Knowshon Moreno, his season high. He had 481 all season. I also feel Fox “took his foot off the gas” just a little that game, but even if thats not true, that wasnt “playing well” by any means.

    The big 15-0 shutout against KC that you all like to point to as the “improvement”, I agree they played “better”, but I also saw KC drive down the field with ease, and get into the red zone on 2 occasions and both times electing to not kick the FG. So that shut out is misleading. Not to mention, it was against Brady Quinn and the team that has earned the #1 pick, due to how horrible they were, but if you and DA wanna high five each other over that one, cool, I’ll give you that game.

    Last 2 games against equally bad teams this season in CAR and SD. The D played well enough to win, but not great. Hardly well enough for me to go along with the myth that the defense has been playing so much better the last few games. And definitely not well enough to erase the fact that on the season, they gave up 443 points. Most since 1961, before Al came along.

    All in all, Dennis Allen took an 8-8 team to 4-12. Went 1-7 in the last 8 games. Stuck with Knapp all season, and never took it upon himself to make changes, even with last years coordinator and offensive assistant, Al Saunders on staff.

    We can do better than this guy. We had better than him last year, and the year before.

    Will the first person who truly believes in his heart and mind that Dennis Allen is the BEST man for this job please stand up?

    I hear the arguments to keep him. They just arent very convincing.

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

    Barring some thunderous shocking change – like Gruden coming

    they stay the course….perhaps they go with a little more experience, perhaps Ray Anderson comes in as Team President to look at the direction and figure out a more productive path to contracts and Free agency….its a work in progress.
    —————————————
    Yes, unfortunately, I agree it appears that they are going to keep DA and let Knapp take the fall for the ENTIRE 4-12 record, including the 443 points given up. All Im saying is, it just doesnt make sense and isnt a good idea to me.

    Dennis Allen should have stripped Knapp a LONG time ago. A smart head coach would have done that. Im just not sold on DA being any good. And if hes staying, which it appears, Im not confident that things will get much better under this guy. Too many questionable situations throughout the season, and not enough bright spots.

    Back to last night’s game, anyone know when’s the last time Seabass had a successful onside Kick?
    **************************************
    No idea, but when was the last time he had a touchback?

    LOL. I was at the game yesterday sitting in the end zone and I swear one of his kickoffs looked like he had kicked a dead duck.

    McKenzie and Allen are staying. Get used to it fans. It’s the right decision.

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

    Nope. I only post here under this name. And I don’t think MistaBrown has the right to make any judgments about anybody until he explains what happened to his “Romney Landslide.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    “Romney Landslide”

    >>>>

    The coaching carousal ended when Al died. Sorry. Allen may not be a great coach (too early to tell) but no team builds a franchise by firing HCs every season. I hope DA lasts three season regardless of record.

    Name a perennial playoff team that fires their HC every season… I will wait.

    If I had to guess, I would say Reggie is always looking to hire people he’s worked with at Green Bay, or who also worked at Green Bay once, who came thru the WCO coaching tree of Bill Walsh.

    Guys like Jon Gruden, Andy Reid, etc will be on his radar.

    more like Marty Mohrningweg, who was OC under Andy Reid and a supposed coaching interest. – Reid will cost a fortune even as OC

    If we hired a “REAL” Head Coach once, we would not be talking about changing coaches every year. Make any sense? Al Davis should have retired 10 years ago.
