Just wanted to start this thread every week for the raiders. post anything that has to do with them.
Raiders had thier bye week ithis past weekend, and we go into san diego to do battle. We get Dominic Rhodes this week for the first time in the regular season after serving a substance abuse suspension. Raiders will move into first place in AFC west if we can win here.
Our team's improvement has been progressive to say the least. With a 2-2 record, the Raiders have silenced the media about Kiffin's abilities and the players discontention. Look to see a great game this sunday @ 1:15 (pacific time) on CBS.
I will also do recaps on the games with full analysis and grades on all sides of the ball. Now show some love to the Raider Nation, and give a shout out on this thread if ya wanna see the Black whole consume the bolts.:D
My predicition for the game is 24-21 Raiders. a close one, but worth the heartache.
2-2 so far, im a fan win or lose and always will be, i think they can keep it a close game with the bolts if they can stop the bolts offensive ground game (L.T.) haha, a deed which seems hard but L.T. has been stopped before.
My prediction. Its either gonna be a blow out bolts winning or if the raiders can keep it together then 24-21 raiders as well
I’ve been staring at my computer screen, trying to think of something original to say about Sunday’s game, and all I can come up with are two words: See 2006. Or 2005. Honestly, Norv Turner must have been having flashbacks, watching L.T. run over a lackluster Raiders team that was unmotivated, incapable and ultimately incompetent. No one on the Raiders escapes this analysis, from the coaching down to the water boy, except for maybe Ronald Curry.
The one thing I liked—well, not liked, but appreciated—about our earlier losses is that they were different losses than we’ve seen over past three years. They were close games, played with purpose, and coherently, if not brilliantly, executed. Sunday, however, was just like old times, right down to our L.T. problem, which is verging on supernatural. Honestly, I would rather lose to the Chargers by a score of 35-7 while limiting L.T. to one touchdown than to lose a closer game this way. I’m serious. If we can’t beat the Chargers, we at least need to find a new way to lose to them.
L.T. is really good, but he’s not that good. Prior to Sunday, he had scored two rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown in five games. On Sunday, he had four touchdowns. We saw this coming. Earlier that week I said that I was sick to death of watching L.T. carve us up like raw fish in the hands of Benihana chef. I now present to you yet another fresh plate of silver and black sushi.
During the Chargers' current eight-game winning streak over the Raiders, L.T. has rushed for 1,142 yards and 12 touchdowns, while also catching one TD pass and throwing two. Pro-rated over 16 games, you're talking about the greatest, most statistically rich season by a running back in the history of the NFL. That's how poorly our great defense has been dealing with this guy.
We had 2:43, a timeout and the two-minute warning on our side while down by two touchdowns in the 4th quarter. Do you think it’s impossible to score two touchdowns in the NFL in nearly three minutes with two stoppages and a long thrower like Daunte Culpepper on your side? Of course not—unless you don’t try. We didn’t try. We ran ten plays that netted us 50 yards before time expired, including plays of 7, 8, 11 and 12 yards, including three consecutive “short rights” to Jordan. Not deep outs to Higgins or Curry. Short rights to
I LOVE the Raiders. Been my fav team since before I could hold a football. (inside the womb) I'm not a hardcore fan like most are, but I have some pride in them. They've done pretty well before, lately though Hope they can get management and coaches changed and get all the bad apples calling the shots because the team has not been its best in the last couple years. Save for the time they went to the Super Bowl.
Yeh, all we can hope for is that they don't lose too badly, at least I think. Doesn't look like a very promising year for the Raiders so far. But thats what makes a fan right? Being able to stick through the thick and thin with their team.
lol. im still trying to get over the fact that we gave moss away for such a dumb offer. he chose not to play for us and then goes over there and has a breakout season. selfish player. i cant wait to see things fall apart when he says that he doesnt get the ball enough or starts losing. (witch i hope happens soon) lol
