The good, the bad, the somehow playoff alive Raiders vs. Chargers

Recommended Posts

Good:

  • We are technically still in the playoff hunt.
  • Renfrow is a beast.
  • I thought our D played very well for the most part.
  • Washington ran hard.
  • Carr had a good day.
  • Mullen looked awesome prior to getting hurt.
  • Seeing Rivers pout.
  • Lawson had a number of PBU's.
  • Cole had a number of great punts.

Bad:

  • Our pass-pro was poor.
  • The Chargers "fan base". Different city but same home crowd for us on the road.
  • The fact if we didn't blow so many games earlier in the season, we would be in a playoff spot right now.
  • Our RT situation is scary with Trent gone for the year.

Ugly:

  • Riley injuring Mullen on a lazy, scary tackle attempt.
  • Mark Davis.

Considering the loss of our "elite cast", Carr looked good. I think gruden allowing him to play from the gun and renfrow being back were key.

I'm firmly in the "don't draft a qb in rd 1" camp. Way bigger needs on this team.

I am so on the fence. I don't think Carr is necessarily the problem but I also don't think he is the solution long-term. At this point in time I hope we draft a dude and letting him sit behind Carr for a year or two. Build up everywhere else then let the best guy win.

Look, we are going into week 17 with a chance. All things considered, can’t complain. And beating the Chargers is always nice regardless

I think it's not a good idea.

Because if you take a first round qb and don't play them, you wasted the asset.

And if you play them and they're not a clear upgrade it's a waste.

Unless we can get our hands on an elite qb prospect, I don't see the point of taking that chance.

The way I see it, either ride with him for the time being, or cut bait.

This.

We'd be in good position if they hadn't messed that up.

Pretty damn impressive given the fact Gordon and Ekler are no joke:

 

Ferrell shedding that "bust" label real fast.

Meh I'm not falling back into the Carr trap we beat a poor team with a losing record  that is all.

He won't be a flashy pass-rusher like Allen, but I'll take a high-end run defender and 6-8 sacks a year from him.
