    He’s proving it, slowly. But not beyond any doubt. I don’t trust the coaching staff. There was no reason to use that ridiculous playbook with Pryor. Either they’re stupid, or they’re playing politics. Either will rear its ugly head again at some point. But McGloin’s having a great game today. He makes the plays when they’re there.

  • RaiderLen

    With better speed and hands.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Keenum got Tarvered right out ofthegame. Hah!

  • Downhomedude

    Good punt Shane. Ball don’t spin the same way in tee-exass!

  • RaidingTexas

    Yep. Don’t understand the hatred of the Reggime. Doing a great job with the roster makeover and getting players to do what they’re paid to do.

  • Big Tom ‘the hand’ Cable

    Don’t go soft DA. Keep the hard on.

  • xXRaider2DaHeartXx

    Time to put our foot down there throats

  • Shameful Metaphors

    And we have the cap space to resign them. Novel concept.

  • RaidingTexas

    Would love to see a bomb here.

  • RaiderLen

    Fugh Twinkle toes. Sorry.

    bad pass

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    TP is more limited than his playbook was.

  • NewEra S&B

    We’re almost a blue collar defense.. And I’m loving it.

  • Jim Jesus

    Yep Yep back breaker!!

  • Jonathan V.

    If allen has the balls to bench pryor for mcgloin, i will take back everyting ive said about him

  • r8ter4evr

    Jennings reminds me of Wheatley. Tough runner but he has a burst of speed nice run

  • Alex7

    if Raiders run the ball and get 1st down = great coaching.
    if Raiders run the ball and get stopped = soft play-calling.

  • RTF916

    Not true, and I gave example after example as to why.

  • RaiderLen

    Exactly.

  • marks hair

    bad snap

  • RaidingTexas

    We disagree on a lot, but appears we both believe the coaches know what they’re doing.

  • RaidingTexas

    Snap busted the play though.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    good point

  • c2e

    kids got a rocket

  • yoblackbooty

    Both

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    End of the third quarter, playing at the best D in the league, and we’re up by 11 with a rookie UDFA making his first start. I’d say that’s a fair bet.

  • RaiderLen

    Yep. Footwork and timing.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Hah!

  • RTF916

    You cheating, Jerry? The quarter ended literal like 3 seconds ago.

  • marks hair

    we have all the quarterbacks we need.. Time to draft wide receiver and o line

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Shows a lot of poise seems to be able to make reads at the LOS grasp the defense and react quickly

  • Downhomedude

    Nix is still in there…?

  • kenchun24

    With all the stuff you mentioned…bottom line, save for the Denver & Eagles games this Raids team plays hard/okay enough to be in games whether they win or lose. With better pieces added (on Offense and d-line) they should improve next year. More wins hopefully (instead of close hard fought losses).

  • 24

    Now we need a Charlie Garner to compliment him.

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, bad snap completely throws off the timing of that play.

  • yoblackbooty

    Yes the return of Wheatley lol

  • r8ter4evr

    Jones ?

  • RaidingTexas

    McGloin showing some escapability there. I see no reason to go back to riding that wave of the future. This 6-foot breaker is getting it done!

  • marks hair

    can we get one of those bacon pinyatas the next tailgate?

  • kenchun24

    lol “6 foot breaker”

  • rifflicks

    nobody else notice the nice pocket McGloin has had to step up into????

  • yoblackbooty

    I enjoyed watching him run the ball rolling on the chiefs

  • c2e

    nice to see scoring in the 2nd half too

  • RaidingTexas

    Sorry, it’s actually a 6’1″ breaker. lol

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    o-line is playing well

  • Rico Stifler

    You can actually see him looking left and right before the snap…. Something pryor never did….

  • John David Booty

    This is the healthiest theyve been this year.

  • kenchun24

    Lezz go Raids…4th quarter…complete this game please.

  • rifflicks

    BS

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    and notice the running game is working
