Which is weird cause DC cant throw a deep ball, or into coverage. 

After week 3, some on here even said posters would start blaming DA mid season LMAO. 

DA is a first ballot hall of famer. Dude is incredible. 

I do not want to take away credit where it is due because the entire team played great.  A lot of the long passes to DA he has smoked the coverage or has fought the defender 1v1.  He is throwing the same type of TD passes to Adams that he threw to Agholor.  He is getting the job done but him throwing 9 of his 12 TDs to Adams from the 25 or further shows Carrs lack of ability in the redzone.  We are still under 50% TD/Redzone.  We have played great but Carr still has issues to work on.  Keep doing it until they can stop us but if we make the playoffs we will have to be able to grind out TDs on a short field.

Def agree with this, it is where we all thought Adams would help carr the most but it still isnt clicking for Carr. 
The I believe just high pass to DA in redzone against the chargers, couldve been an easy walk in or toss to Hollins. Especially with how Jacobs is running, youd think Foster on a delay would be open too. 
This is easily the weakest part of Carrs game, and its very frustrating. Especially when he can run it in. 
I think Waller Renfrow and Adams, would help a ton though. Just target the weakest Defender or run jacobs if spread out. 

Redzone percent def needs to improve, but we are bottom 10 in trips to redzone, which is at least in part because we are scoring from anywhere. Bottom 10 in redzone attempts, and top 10 in scoring is def weird lol. 

No doubt, come playoffs, (BIG IF), but when playing good teams you need to capitalize in the redzone. Kicking short fgs will lose you games.

Josh Jacobs looks like he's headed towards a rushing title this year. What an amazing season.

Adams best Raider WR season ever, first year. Jacobs one of the best Raider RB seasons ever. Our offensive cast is pretty sick. OL isn’t good, but as Stidham showed, as long as we have a QB that can extend plays, our offense is FIRE and one of the best in the league.

Haha, it looks promising but this is a little premature maybe?

Seems like a lot of us expected him to be kinda phased out this season for Zamir White. I think our coaching staff might even have felt the same way.

Big props to Jacobs - he stepped it up big time this season.

Been defending him for ages. You guys came around 😎

I've always thought he had the talent, but the injuries and lack of production the past 2 years made me and I'm assuming the Raiders hesitate.
