The Raiders and Cowboys traded gift touchdowns, with Greg Jenkins running 23 yards with a Terrance Williams fumble on the opening kickoff and DeMarco Murray getting a 2-yard run courtesy of a Matt McGloin fumbled snap at the 2-yard line with 43 seconds left in the first quarter.

    Wow how did he get that off???

  • 10centsworth

    ahhhh, I’m wallowing in…football.

  • RaidingTexas

    OK, that’s enough wildcat please.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Allow? MM took ‘em!

  • Raiderfusion

    What a QB, stays in there and throws a strike while getting buried.

  • Zymurge

    Mixing it up well actually. See how many passes he put loft under. Where are all the bat downs this week?

    Oh wait, he learned and adjusted. We haven’t seen the whole learning skill thing from a QB before this season, so it takes awhile for it to sink in.

  • Zymurge

    I can feel Pryor’s knee throbbing from my couch.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Thanks for not fumbling Ford – Relieved

  • Morilla_00

    I think we have a QB folks

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I like the announcers striving to make excuses for the boys already!

  • aigraiders

    Love these 3rd down comp. Mcg ice cold w pressure

  • RaidingTexas

    Seriously? C’mon guys

  • 24

    Turn the radio on, listen to Papa and watch while you listen instead.

  • RaidingTexas

    I don’t want to hear anymore about this short QB crap. I haven’t seen that giant Ware bat anything down yet.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Saw that last week and thought it was too soon to mention Joe Cool.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    cmon mcgunn…need a td!

  • 24

    Though expect delay I guess..but I’d rather have that.

  • Michael

    Pryor package coming up? I really hope not

  • The Big Banana

    Looks like the real Matty Ice plays for the silver and black.

  • RaidingTexas

    Yeah, but it’s fun to watch the TV, see the play, then get ready to hear Papa’s TOUCHDOWWWWWWWWN RAIDERRRRRRS a few seconds later.

  • 10centsworth

    When the score is 31-7, we’ll trot it out.

  • Michael

    That was one of the main things I’ve been watching for. So far very happy

  • Zymurge

    Hey, what happened to the theory that a non-mobile QB behind this porous line would get killed?

    It couldn’t have anything to do with knowing who’s going to be open before the snap and then getting rid of it quickly, would it?

    Right now the Cowgirls look afraid to blitz.

  • RaidingTexas

    First and goal from the half yard line!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I bet my blood pressure would be way higher right now with TP, so he is exciting.

  • Raiderfusion

    No prevent D and we bury these clowns!!

  • aigraiders

    Bye bye McFragile

  • 24

    Drew Brees proved you can be short and be an elite QB.

  • 10centsworth

    See. the kid didn’t want to score right away, give the girls any time. A genius, I tell you.

  • RTF916

    Total control. I’m still cringing, though. Fearing the other shoe dropping.

  • Zymurge

    The Pryor package involves holding a clipboard and using his speed to run water out to McG.

  • turf toe

    Pound it in.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Trick play. He’ll pooch kick it.

  • 24

    I think our offensive line has improved since the beginning of the season and we’re now finally healthy, so that helps too.

  • RaidingTexas

    The life of a Raiders fan these last 10 years. I hear you bro.

  • aigraiders

    Seriously guys but we finally have an nfl caliber passing game since gannon. This is so awsome. 3rd down conv are crazy. Balls put in rite spots

  • 24

    If we’re 31-7, why even bother bringing Pryor in…it will likely lead to an interception anyways.

  • 10centsworth

    Nah. He’ll piss you off and run for two 70 tds. Woe is us.

  • Michael

    And we get the ball at the half!

  • Zymurge

    Mad MaxG showed he can learn and adjust in a short time. He’s finding passing lanes and using loft under the ball to mix it up. Took him all of a short week of practice to make it a non-issue.

    Meanwhile, Pryor is still trying to learn another play from chapter 2 of the playbook …

  • RaidingTexas

    TOUCHDOOOOOWWWWWWWN RAIDERRRRRRRRRRRRS

  • Raiderfusion

    Pryor to TE or receiver next year. Giving us two 1st round picks 4 the cost of one. TP could be our Megatron!!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    It’s just that easy!

  • RaidingTexas

    McGloin is trying to go 2-0 in UDFA vs UDFA competition. LMAO

  • 24

    Nobody would have thought that our big trio would be…McGloin, Jennings and Holmes

  • 24

    Oh wow…I never considered that…good call.

  • Zymurge

    Why wait until next year?

    Start with some trick packages that have him and McG on the field at the same time. Give him a few throwbacks so he can learn how dangerous he can be in space. Then make more and more of that package have him run routes.

  • 2romes

    Even the coach said the Oline was playing better the last two weeks and with veldheer there it makes a huge difference. Zymurgy, enjoy the game !

  • turf toe

    great game prep. DA and Olson are calling a great game so far

  • lefty12

    Holmes?More like Streater
