OAKLAND — Amari Cooper became the first Raiders receiver in 10 years to top the 1,000-yard mark during Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Cooper caught a 41-yard pass during the third quarter to scoot past the 1,000-yard mark. Randy Moss was the last to do it in 2005.

That catch gave him 1,008 yards on the season and he capped that same drive with a 26-yard touchdown reception, his second touchdown catch of the game. This is the first multi-touchdown game of Cooper’s rookie season.

The second touchdown also gave the Raiders a 20-17 lead with 6:48 left in the third quarter. That gave Cooper five catches for 114 yards, his fifth 100-yard game of his career.

    3.7 YPC in this game**

    carson is a great example of how screwed up this blog is. 8-8 seasons are worse than 17-47. palmer always finds a way to lose even though his record with az is 27-8. it’s not a players fault he gets injured unless it’s palmer…then it is…and 6-10 is a great season.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Got their attention early. Carr screwed that up. Don’t argue Rico. I loveCarr. Hescrewedthepooch!

  • inonewordraider

    Not a fa better and no todd gurleys in the draft, theres about 5 reliable backs in the nfl

  • Rico Stifler

    I would MUCH rather have Murray as a back up, not the starter.

  • Raider 8

    it’s the team behind him. anyone can win with that team. the backups are 5-5 without him though..so never mind.

  • Rico Stifler

    I can name THREE FAs who would be way better than Murray.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
    Howmany miss at 10-6?

  • inonewordraider

    Good luck with that

  • dplunk

    At least you spead the blame evenly. Good for you.

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, the picks were on Carr. But Murray runs like he is a big sloppy pu zzy…..

  • Rico Stifler

    Matt Forte, Lamar Miller and Doug Martin. I would take ANY of those RBs over Murray if they hit FA.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Gawd!, what happenedto you in SoCal? Or did USC reject you? Just a geographical hatred? I’ve been where you live, and that’s understandable.

  • There will be one in the AFC this year, Eagles last year, Cardinals year before, Bears year before that.
    Basically about one every season.

  • dplunk

    Some think that Carr can do no wrong. Ever

  • Rico Stifler

    I would even take Elliot and Booker from the 2016 draft over Murray.

  • Rico Stifler

    Who?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Who, this year? Who, when Seattle went at 7-9?

  • Two 10-6 teams missed the playoffs in 2010

  • Bucs and Giants were both 10-6 in 2010 when Seattle got in at 7-9.
    No playoffs

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Well, there’s an average of one a year.

  • inonewordraider

    Matt forte is one of the 5 or so elite backs in the nfl, doug martin is good this yr, but no way id gamble on a guy who hadnt had a good year in a while, miller havent seen this yr but was nothing special b4

  • dplunk

    Not necessarily you, but I see some remarks that’s made and it’s all the blame is on everyone except Carr.

  • Gdog

    Could you be anymore passive aggressive?

  • Stabler

    Clinched the division today.

  • the erudite dr robert

    any cognac/brandy drinkers here?

    i have had brandy only a few times, and it was the traditional “straight in a snifter while sitting by a fire and looking really erudite” way. natch.

    but i know it’s popular with the kids and according to wiki, half of all cognac sold in america is bought by black folk.

    so there’s a whole yac culture i’m not too up on. what are the mixers and “ways to drink it”?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I’m glad you’re not Alex, ‘cuzyou rarely, um aremistaken.So I don’t have to check. Alex, you alwayshaveto.
    I didn’t think it wascommon, andam going back 10 years.

  • MEX_GHOST

    New post!!!

  • Stabler

    With cough syrup, yo.

  • the erudite dr robert

    that sounds pretty good.

  • the erudite dr robert

    so why are u here???

  • People always get caught in the moment.
    Pretty much every year, not every but most, you got a 8-8 team or worse winning the division and a 10-6 team getting boned by barely missing a WC spot.
    This year will be no different. I think Steelers, Chiefs, Jets all win 10 and one ain’t getting in.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    It’s more comfortable.
    I’m afraid of change.

  • Hennessey and Hyptoniq
    “Incredible Hulk”

  • Rico Stifler

    It is unlikely that Chicago will keep Forte since they have Langford.

    Martin had 1454 yards rushing as a rookie. Dealt with injuries for two seasons. and now he is 10 yards off the NFL this year.

    Lamar Miller had about 900 total yards as a 2nd year RB in 2013, had almost 1400 total yards (216/1099 rushing, 38/275 receiving) last year and he has over 1100 total yards (160/781 rushing, 41/358 receiving) this year.

    To teach you that you have to refresh often. Hehe.

  • MEX_GHOST

    I know, normally is your age.
