well... so far our defense SUCKS! the only thing stopping the broncos is their own mistakes ie: penalties. can't stop the pass and absolutely NO PASS RUSH!!!!
thomas fumbled - see? we get chances ONLY if they make mistakes!
The Defense is patchwork at the Corners, they just played Rottenburger and now Manning, 2 top QB's of all time. They have to play for turnovers, it's their only hope.The D-line's inability to get to the QB is poor, I was expecting much better from them this year. Have to keep it close so the Offense can bring it around.JONES
that's the problem now jones... 24-6. they're opening it up now.
now thre 3 and outs in a row...
here it is - BLOWOUT!
Absolutely embarrassing!Out coached; out played.Both sides of the ball played as predictable as they could.Broncos stacked the LOS and smothered the Raiders. Raiders played soft zone with two deep and Manning tore them apart underneath.Like I said; embarrassing!
DOWN WITH ZBS! FIRE KNAPP TODAY!!!
Nate - It's not just ZBS. It's a complete lack of adjustments and void of imagination. And it's not just Knapp; I'm now worried that Tarver can handle his job... depleted secondary or not.That game was clown car material.
No clown cars. The Raiders did not make stupid mistakes. They were simply out-played/out-coached. Denver has better players, and they are the better team.
The Raiders game planned right to the Broncos strengths, then made almost no adjustments. By the time Tarver brought his defense closer to the line, the game was already out of reach. When they blitzed, the CBs played soft coverage and gave Manning the outlets he needed.If that was a boxing match, I'd say the Raiders took a dive.Just last year, the Raiders offense was the strength of this team. In this offense, McFadden is only good for about two yards a carry. Palmer looks good (he's not making critical mistakes), but he can't overcome the poor playcalling.Has Knapp completely abandoned the screen play? Raiders ran that play to perfection the last two years with Campbell.
We have the worst secondary in the NFL... plus the worst MLB in the NFL (a horrible horrible combination) and our new hot-shot coach for some insane reason hired the worst, most insipid OC in the history of the NFL.He is the same as he has ever been.. an ok coach when things are going well, but completely clueless when things start going bad.And whose idea was it to abandon the no-huddle that beat Pitts last week?Someone at the top has some explaining to do?Carson probably played most of the second half with a concussion... and took an absolute beating.How soon before McFadden starts pointing fingers at Knapp? Good gawd he doesn't look anything the same. How can one person destroy one of the top weapons in football so quickly??
Three of four weeks we were out-coached on both sides of the ball.That's almost a feat in itself. And this is the staff I am supposed to believe will bring us back to glory?Sorry... I think St. MacKenzie should have stuck with Hue for one more year.And it's the fans that suffer... nobody will get fired that are directing this shit. Just watch... the entire coaching staff will remain intact.
Can we blame the Zebras for this game? NOCan we blame Al Davis for this game? NOCan we blame the staduim for this game? NOWhat can we blame it on...I guess the last person that I can blame this game on is on me THE TRUE DIE HARD RAIDER FAN THAT EVERY YEARS THINKS THIS IS OUR YEAR.I am fed up with this high school mirage of garbage, I am still trying to figure out the fact that Indianapolis is doing better than we are, I do believe they were 0-16 last year, what changed
Has Knapp completely abandoned the screen play?>>>The few he threw were all slow developing ones way behind the line of scrimmage.WTF?The entire team was in our backfield all game... why throw screens alongside the backfield??And not a single one to McFadden that I recall. Carson was getting beat up in the pocket... why not roll him out of the pocket until they stop?Knapp has no clue what he is doing.We all said this when he was hired... is this a surprise to anyone?
I hope one of the beat reporters ask Allen whose idea it was to abandon the no-huddle that beat Pitts... his or Knapps.If it was Knapps idea he should be demoted for Saunders. Instantly.Why change something that was working?Is there going to be answers to this? Will McKenzie say anything? This is a fucking joke. The Raiders DESERVE empty stadiums for the rest of the year until these obvious mistakes get fixed. The entire Raider fan base was screaming for the no-huddle and they did it and IT WORKED. Now it went away... are they giving us the finger?? I think so.They are trying to prove who is in charge... at the expense of winning. Why else would they change something that was working to perfection? Are they insane? No.. just too much of an ego problem.This may not get fixed...
Postgame take is up.
