  1. Week 5 GDT: Raiders at Chargers

    Everyone is making a big deal out of not giving the ball to Lynch at the 1. It's the interception that is the big deal... if Carr throws the ball away after Smith wasn't open we give it to Lynch on the next play.
  2. Bucs name Winston the starter over FITZMAGIC

    That would be awesome haha
  3. The Good, the Bad, the WINNING TEAM vs the Browns

    Agreed. Even this last game... he had quite a few runs for no gain where he broke 3 or 4 tackles after he was hit immediately in the backfield. Our big strong interior OL seems to struggle quite a bit through stretches of a game.
  4. The Good, the Bad, the WINNING TEAM vs the Browns

    Definitely! This is what happens when he's involved consistently.
  5. Report: Gruden causing divide in Raiders front office

    I don't think anyone has outcoached Gruden this season so far. Sure the Mack trade was dumb as hell but the Raiders could easily be 2-1 right now if not for some bonehead mistakes by Carr, a dropped pass that was wide open on a 4th and 1, and penalties....
  6. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    I don't think we utilize him correctly. If he was on a team with a stronger passing attack then he would put up huge numbers. We don't run complex routes on this team or any deep routes anymore. It's all quick 2 second throws with not much time to get separation from coverage. In our system you've got to be able to catch balls in traffic. I agree with the OP, he just doesn't have that killer instinct to be great. He's kinda soft mentally. I really like Cooper... but when you combine our lack of gameplanning to get him involved with the lack of fire in his game, you are going to be disappointed quite a bit. Not to mention Carr has just not been good for a year and a half... so how good can Cooper really be with his supporting cast?
  7. The Good, the Bad, the 0-2 team vs the Broncos

    I actually don't think Conley should be in the Good section...He got beat a lot today in 1 v 1...also it seemed like there were a lot of plays where he had to decide between covering an intermediate or shallow route and ended up getting caught in between a few times, not covering either option. Not sure if that's totally his fault because maybe someone is supposed to help him out there. But either way, he did get beat deep a few times, some of them we got lucky and the WRs feet didn't come down in bounds. Wasn't too impressed with Conley today but he was ok I guess.
  8. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Gotta feed Cooper the ball. Offense looks good when he's involved. Nice to see him focused and using his hands on all his catches today. This game was big for his confidence.
  9. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    As soon as the Broncos got the ball back at the end I knew it was over. Our defense cannot be trusted to close out any game with the lack of pass rush. We have to win with our offense.
  10. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    I agree. Best tackler on the team today that's for sure.
  11. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    We also had our extra point attempt blocked earlier in the game. Unacceptable. Donald Penn looked like an old man on crutches out there today.
  12. What is your REALISTIC expectation for this year?

    How about 2? Sounds reasonable to me.... I thought we would go 9-7 maybe 8-8 with Mack. Without him I'm expecting 6-7 wins.
  13. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    I actually thought Trubisky looked pretty good... he has good mobility and pocket presence. I'm shocked they lost but it definitely was not because of Trubisky. Their defense gave up 2 HUGE plays with poor tackling and Fuller dropped a EASY interception. Defense lost them the game.... yea i get it they have ARod but that hasn't nothing to do with the missed tackles. Bears are going to compete this year. This game showed that, so we shouldn't be expecting a top 5 pick necessarily....
  14. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    I'm curious to see how losing Mack affects team morale. Hopefully players are hungry to fill that void on defense and not sulking over losing the opportunity to play alongside a future HoF player and leader. I'm excited to see how our rookies get after Goff and I'm most excited to see how Carr does. Not an easy matchup for him but lets see how comfortable he looks.
  15. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    No matter how long I think about it and try to be positive, I don't see anything good about this trade. When you draft someone, you WANT them to be KHALIL MACK... and then we finally have him, a future hall of famer, and we trade him because we can't afford him? BS....should have paid the man, he deserved it more than anyone on our team. Guess we'll have to see what these 1st round picks end up being. I think without Mack we don't really have a shot at the playoffs this year but I hope I'm wrong.
