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.

    LOL

    I’ll remind you again. The O line can delight in taking a D lineman low, when they wait and jump in the air. Love it, once they figure it out.

    Did I just hear 7 for 7 on 3rd downs?

  • 24

    I’m really just referring to today.

  • turf toe

    now pressure…

  • lefty12

    So am I

  • Zymurge

    Hate to say I told you so, but waiting for the whole TP debacle was a huge setback. Imagine where the O would be right now if they weren’t running a watered down play pamphlett and had McG getting more seasoning.

  • RaidingTexas

    Here comes that hurry up.

  • yoblackbooty

    Beaurifyl now defense lets shut it down and go in the 2nd half

  • yoblackbooty

    Bring pressure!!!!

  • RaidingTexas

    Time to blitz and force that pick Romo

  • turf toe

    We better now pull that prevent crap or they

  • 24

    Hey I love Streater so whatever works.

  • Michael

    Geeze guys come on. Don’t let em score

  • 24

    Who’s covering Dez Bryant?

  • Big Tom ‘the hand’ Cable

    Let’s go soft and limp. What the fúck.

  • xXRaider2DaHeartXx

    Why Vanilla

  • 8raiderreign8

    Guard the seams

  • turf toe

    PRESSURE THE FRIGGING QB
    DON’T LET THEM BACK INTO THE GAME!!

  • Jonathan V.

    The raiders are terrible against the no huddle.

  • Zymurge

    So it was total coincidence that the line got better with the change of QB?

    We’ve been telling everyone all along how the QB has a HUGE impact on the OL. Pryor’s impact was negative.

  • RaidingTexas

    It took McGloin all of one half of football to figure out how to find passing lanes through the trees.

  • RaidingTexas

    Dam that was close

  • RaidingTexas

    Jenkins knows how bad at ball security Dez is.

  • Zymurge

    The line lost three out five that started the game last week, and some of those were already backups. Yet they played pretty well.

    They didn’t get more talented all of a sudden, they found themselves in a different offense that makes their job easier.

    The guy walked onto Penn State as a freshman and took the job…then he walked onto the Raiders and took that job. The guy probably walks into a bar, grabs the girl of his choice and walks out with her too.

  • 10centsworth

    42-28? I’ll take that. Anyone else?

  • lefty12

    How about big 4?

  • 24

    Include Rivera and say big 5?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Oh horrors! This game is over!

  • RaidingTexas

    Raiders get the ball first next half. Need a long, time consuming drive.

  • Raiderfusion

    Let’s face it the only thing Prevent D is prevent you from winning!!

  • lefty12

    OK

  • turf toe

    Crap. I could feel this coming. Hope it doesn’t turn into a td.

  • 24

    Dennis Allen is his own worst enemy. Just play the way you do the whole game…never go conservative..it always kills us.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    If the announcers know about the fake spike would you run it/

  • 10centsworth

    How we EVER gonna fit Reece into our schemes with this going on.

  • RaidingTexas

    DA needs to hire an adviser who can show them how to play against no-huddle offenses.

  • turf toe

    HEELEEEEELELELELLLLLL YES

  • 2romes

    No. You are partially right.it was lack of QB play and the line getting better .

  • lefty12

    You mean Tarver.

  • 10centsworth

    Good. Some time for Stabler. I mean McG.

  • RaidingTexas

    Fair criticism. I like most everything else about what he’s done here, but these no-huddle situations are an achilles heel for him.

  • turf toe

    both.

  • RTF916

    They only got downfield because we were in prevent. Dallas has a good 2 minute offense.

  • RaidingTexas

    I think DA sets the tone for defense, but yes, Tarver is DC. Falls on them both.

  • 24

    Yes both…this is their project.

  • 10centsworth

    Well, I guess that gives up momentum. I mean incentive.

  • The Big Banana

    Our 2 minute defense is putrid. Horrendous.

  • turf toe

    Ridiculous. Big drive, now they have confidence.
