  1. The Good, the Bad, the 0-2 team vs the Broncos

    Or the Darren McFadden game. Wasn't that in Denver?
  2. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    This is going to be one of the biggest reasons we won (if we squeeze it out) and the least talked about items on the list. Chubb with iller was supposed to create a monster pass rush.
  3. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Offense has really gotten wings now. We went 0-5 on third downs but now we're flying. Carr's got some confidence back. Cooper too.
  4. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Holy moly we slipped out of that one, thank goodness.
  5. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    I kinda hoped that, when not faced with a dline the likes of the Rams, our offense would open up. Carr is pretty good if he's not pressured on every play all game long.
  6. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Carr is 22 for 23. Just wow.
  7. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Raiders are playing well again to start the game. Nothing world shattering but starting to see some good foundation, decent defense, good schemes. I really expected the offense to have a good day today and rebound. So far we just can't get I to the end zone but it's nice to see Carr move the ball down field
  8. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    I don't think anyone expected this to be a battle of defenses. Is this the best efensive game we've seen in years?
  9. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    Perhaps. But with Suh and Donald, and the corners the Rams have, this is not a bad game plan. Carr wouldn't have enough time and would be mauled half to deatu by now if he were looking down field every series. And to grudens credit, almost everyone expected us to lose pretty handily. We're still in this coming up on the 4th quarter.
  10. Week One GDT: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders

    We're playing a very good team very competitive. Grudens game plan is effective and has nuetralized one of the best players in the game by not giving him time to make a play. Tonight has been very encouraging. Carr is also playing much more conservative than I thought. Making very high percentage passes most of the time.
  11. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    I was being metaphorical, not about who they're playing but who they're paying. Just pointing out that the theory Gruden and McKenzie betted on was on full display last night. And just for a moment, covered up some of the sting of trading Mack.
  12. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    To quote myself. I hate hate hate that we let Mack go. But week 1 is such prime example of why they were ok with letting him go and not paying him 24 a year. Because a DE doesn't win you games. Not really. The better QB will almost always put the game on his back.
  13. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    Last person to have a sack, int, an int return for a TD, a fumble and a fumble recovery.... Was Mack. The thing is, even with his dominant game, they're in danger of losing because they have a rookie QB and GB had Aaron Rogers.
  14. Week One - Bears vs Packers.

    I might very well have to start routing for the Bears as a secondary team. I love Mack, and am just sick to my stomach watching him go, but I love watching him dominate. And, as sad as this is, it's super fun and gratifying to watch what he can do with a defense around him that is actually good and can apply pressure opposite him. It's bitter sweet. i hope he wins DMVP again this year.
  15. Around the league v.1.0

    I don't know, he's great in the red zone because he's such a problem. But other than throwing the ball 70 yards, he didn't do a lot of Qb'ing that makes you shudder. I watched the game, he has that rookie mobile QB feel, they're using him right, and he can do some things that could be problematic, but then again he's not that pocket passer who's going to take charge of the game and not give it back to you. Other than Aaron Rodgers (I would even argue he isn't that mold), there hasn't been a QB yet in that mold that has been consistent for a career. Mahomes didn't make too many mistakes, kudo's on him for that, it's hard for a rookie. but I'd give this game more to Hill than Mahomes. Speaking of Tyreek Hill..... he looks like he's problem. and I'm pretty sure Hunt will wake up here soon too.
