Chiefs Gameday Thread

Let's get this party started. Last week's theme was "turning the tide," and we did just that against the Chargers.

Now comes another AFC West foe in the Chiefs, who have so far staged a startling turnaround to remain undefeated...

This week's theme is therefore "show the world." 

Prior to the start of the season, the Raiders were a league-wide laughingstock, ranked by many as the worst team in the NFL. 

The Raiders still have a ways to go, but they've served up some crow sandwiches, too. Terrelle Pryor has emerged as a bonafide threat, and our defense is starting to raise eyebrows. 

So now here we are, facing a true statement game. It's time to show the world this team can establish momentum and exhibit growth. 

Beating the Jaguars and Chargers is one thing. Beating the undefeated Chiefs, however, is what we need to do next. GO RAIDERS!

TP2's improvisational skills will be needed to unlock the #1 D in the NFL.

To beat a sound, talented, undefeated KC Team (can't believe I'm saying this about KC?!) on the road, it will require another game similar to the Chargers game where all 3 Raider units shine.

The tail of two halves.

Raiders D looked good, but the offense is starting to develop a pattern of poor second half performances. It's probably unfair to criticize Pryor for late game interceptions due to all the injuries and the poor play of the O-line. Giving up 10 sacks is insane! And all the pre-snap penalties. It got ugly. Pryor should learn to through the ball away more instead of taking losses.

Chiefs are tough on D but they are not the Broncos. Raiders will want this rematch.

Did I just write "tail"?

Uhh... Tale! Yeah, and "throw!" not through. Yikes! Note to self, read before posting!

I don't know... I think "tail" works ok...

The Tail of Two Halves:
If we can't pick ourselves up by our shirt TAILS, it's 10 more games of running with our TAIL between our legs.

The bye week comes at a good time to get some our OLine guys back healthy. Our D kept us in the game for 3 quarters before the wheels completely fell off.

TP a developing quarterback needs to get the play calls in sooner than later, to avoid the many delay of games, in a already hostile environment! That's on the coach!! Besides our lack of health on the O-Line, and non existing run game, the offensive game plan became so predictable quick too!!! I put this loss on the head coach and offensive coaches at fault for poor execution...

if a hater like kawakami is saying;

"It’s not a terrible problem to have–only the special players get a defense to over play that much, and Pryor is a special talent."

you know Pryor is the man.

I am almost indifferent to the coach and the GM they have not shown me much good or bad so far

electric boogaloo

Seriously the most exciting thing to happen to the Raiders since Gruden

Pryor gives us incredible entertainment, the guy cares deep, a reason to watch every sunday and hope for the future

What are some Key points for the upcoming game against the Steelers?

For me, The defense playing stout again will keep the Raiders in the game

The Offensive Line's injuries will continue to hurt the offense in a fundamental way, so I hope at the very least Wiz is able to play. Pryor can lead this team to a victory this week with a level head, and a few big plays..

The O Co. and the fans are going to have to be loud ALL game long. Does anyone see a blowout by either team in this great rivalry? Two teams at 2-4 fighting to get back in the hunt. The Raiders need to have a going to war mindset... Plus I REALLY want to win my bets with my steeler friends....

Just Win Baby!!

True about the o-line, SCAR, but I see this as a winnable game. While perhaps caught off guard and unable to mitigate the injury bug with more effective playcalling last week, I expect the Raiders (coaches) to be better prepared for this game... knowing injuries are still a problem.

Meanwhile, the defense will be key to keeping the Raiders in the game long enough for the offense to figure it out.

My keys to the game SCAR are;

Win the turnover battle to set up short fields for our O,

Win the TOP game whereby the Raiders effectively stay on schedule and run the ball effectively

Wrapping up Big Ben and getting him to ground.

Raiders are 0-10 in last 10 tries after a bye week. Ouch!

No time like the present to change that pattern...

There are 10 games left in the season for the Raiders to make a statement about the direction of the team and the direction of the franchise.

Go Raiders!
