^hahaha

I'm pretty confident in our run game and pass D so the keys for us should be protecting JR and stopping the run. If we can do those two things even remotely well we should come out on top. I can't wait to see Fargas, DMC, and Bush leave the Donkey's in their dust.

17-13 Raiders win is my prediction. I say Russell goes 13-22 for 130 and 1 td, McFadden goes 13 rushes for 75 yards and 1 td, Fargas 10 rushes for 45 yards and Bush goes 6 rushes for 17 yards.

Is Walker still questionable to play? Without him today, we dont have a number1 WR

Yeah if there was a pass rush then taht secondary would destroy. Right now its just roll out wait and throw the ball for a big gain. Or PA roll out wait and throw.

What I have noticed: NO PASS RUSH BY US AT ALL. Running game for us is doing fine. Run defence is doing better than last year so far. We are getting killed by Royal and their TE's. Curry need to grow some hands( even though Russell's pass wasnt the greatest, if it hits you in the hands you should catch it). We stopped them in the red zone... thats good news I guess.

We have to stop the big plays against Denver, thats what is really hurting us

Can we just punt the ball on 3rd down?

Can we just fire Rob Ryan already please.

Wont be done. I say Kiffen will be gone soon and Ryan will get one more chance as head coach for the rest of the season

If firing Ryan means replacing the entire d-line...then I'm all for it.

How do we blitz on every play in the preseason but not do it once when we haven't gotten any pressure on Cutler? Makes no sense whatsoever.

Kiffin needs to pratice the shot out of this team. This performance was really bad. The defence was horrible. Couldnt stop the pass and the run. Offence was so so. Russell missed 3 wide open deep passes that could have effected the game in a big way. He still did a half assed job though. McFadden looked good even though he was "hurt" in the 3rd. Fargas looked nice. Didnt see any of Bush which is a surprise to me. We missed Walker alot. We need dline help badly. No pressure on the QB will kill us all season.

Even though we got completely destroyed; Russell, Fargas, McFadden, and Miller all looked pretty good. The run blocking was decent while the pass protection was better than expected. Everything else was ****. I don't think we recorded a single pressure or knockdown on Cutler all night and he just diced up Hall.

Al Davis needs to die, Rob Ryan needs to be jobless, and Cornell Green should be taken out into the parking lot and shot in the kneecaps.

If Kiffen is gone at the end of the year, Davis needs to sign a hard nosed, defencive coach. Enough of this 30 year old offencive coaches, they worked in the 70's and 80's Davis but its 2008. Die allready please.

I really hope we resign Aso. If we lose him, our secondary will be horrible. We need to sign or draft a great DE. Pressure defense will be key for us in the future.

I dont think Kiffin or any other Offensive coach is the problem.Furthermore Gruden was an offensive coach.
The problem or at least the main problem is clearly Al Davis.Nobody wants to come to Oakland other than some guys who were once stars or overated players who are offered alot of money.HC's don't want to come here because they know its Al whos in control.
Kiffin wants to fire Ryan Al puts his foot down on that.We keep players like Sam Williams and Hiram Eugene because they're on the Al Davis scholarship.Kiffin was given a crappy roster and a crappy DC and isnt allowed to make the decisions.Theres no reason to blame him just blame Al.

I don't think Kiffin is the problem either, but Al will probably fire him anyway because he's an idiot. The way Davis backed Rob Ryan this offseason would lead me to believe he would be next in line. That and the fact that nobody else will want the job.

This team is going nowhere as long as Al is alive.

Yep no pressure on the QB puts our secondary in trouble, but there is no excuse on 70 yd passes to TE's. None, zero. This secondary needs to pick themselves up off the ground, they are the most talented in the league and they were getting killed by an average receiving corps.

If the offense completes one or two of those long passes and gets the good end of a couple questionable calls [the goal line PI on Miller comes to mind] this game would have been closer, but until Hall remembers how to cover WR's we are going to be in trouble.

And I also agree with everyone's comments above, you have to generate some type of pass rush, and Rob Ryan's refusal to do so cost us a couple games last year. They have to start blitzing if they want to be even close to a .500 team.

deangelo fall can you please check royal at the l.o.s.? OMFG, get in his face. If receivers have a free release and the QB has all day, we're done. I hate Rob Ryan. With our DBs we should be able to blitz, but ryan is a ****** and made absolutely no adjustments at all. I mean, how about trying to bracket Royal? He was going crazy. I'm not proud of it, but I threw my beer on a donkey fan last night. I couldnt take it anymore. Obnoxious asshole.

I just got home to AZ from Oakland, I was at the game and that was probably the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. I'm far stretched to find a positive from that game, outside of Fargas hard running and Russell not throwing any picks. This team needs to replace at least half the roster, there's not much to work with at all I know it's one game but I'd be amazed if this team wins 3 games. Nobody can catch, pressure a QB and half of the secondary cant guard for their life. This is a very soft team, no heart no toughness at all, but they dont care because they're all on their huge guarantees and they will mail in the season, for the first time in my life I'm embarassed that I like the Raiders, poor dreadful display.

Ashley Lelie and Chaz Schilens are our best WRs.

I would have hated to pay to be at last nights game.

I was at the game too and i saw someone do that. What section did you spill the beer?

How did the Oline play last night?

I only watched the first half but the run blocking was pretty good with both Fargas and McFadden running for decent gains. The pass blocking is a work in progress but with experience Russell will be able to see the blitzes coming and call audibles to adjust. We won't really know where we at until we play a decent defense tho.
