View Full Version : Week 17 Raiders vs Ravens

QB JaMarcus Russell-Out
QB Bruce Gradkowski-Out
RB Justin Fargas-Out
DE Greg Ellis-Questionable
SS Tyvon Branch-Questionable
WR Darrius Heyward-Bey-Out
CB Chris Johnson-Questionable
OT/OG Langston Walker-Doubtful
DT Gerald Warren-Probable

Intesting that Russell is out in the final game, I didnt hear of an injury. Maybe Al wants to see what Frye and Losman can do. If Branch is out, I will be excited to see what Mike Mitchell can do at SS. Our oline is going to be real weak if Walker is out.

Prediction: 33-13 Ravens
Maybe we pull out a win like we did last year to keep a team out of the playoffs. I just think the Ravens are going to kill our oline and run the ball all over us with Ray Rice

Ray Rice is the biggest matchup nightmare we have gone against all year meaning we are going to have to play more zone to contain him, which I am not sure we will. I have a hard time seeing us sustain any momentum offensively if we cannot run the ball effectively versus this vaunted defense as well. In classic Raiders fashion we will manage a way to keep things tight somehow, but I would expect their team to pull away in the second half due to turnovers and big plays that we seem to let up every game. Maybe something more like 27-13 Ravens is fitting.

Yeah I can totally see Reed baiting Frye and picking it off. Frye has really bad judgement, he made some really questionable throws against the Browns and that INT in the end zone was a horrible decision. I don't see us running the ball at all on this Ravens D and I don't see us stopping Ray Rice. To sum it all up we are going to lose as much as I hope to play spoiler prob won't happen.

It's becoming more obvious that Henderson needs to switch over to RT in the offseason.

He has no athletic ability what so ever and is really just a big bumbling idiot. Now I understand why Lane Kiffin use to rip on him so much. He needs top be moved out of there to RT and we should draft Anthony Davis.

SwagU
01-03-2010, 03:31 PM
Trevor Scott is our SLB for sure now damn. 7 sacks

He has been awesome since switching positions. He has played not even half the season and has been our best LB. Looking forward to him next season after he has had more time in camp to get use to LB.

Man what has happen to Higgins. Last season he was pretty electric, this season he has major issues catching the football. Great scramble by Frye though.

RaiderNation

We are looking good right now on O. We must stop Rice here on this drive

As a receiver he's maintained status quo. I don't think he'll be back next year in an effort to get DHB on the field. They play the same receiver spot.

Very true, but it is like we want to see him under achieve in a hope to make it easier to cut him. We dont use him on kick return any more where I think he is the best returner our team and we dont use him in enough crosses and slants where he is most effective after the catch. I think the struggles come from a lack of confidence in him since we drafted two WR's.

I don't even believe he's struggling, this is what he is. Earlier in his career those crosses and slants you speak of were an effective way to get the ball into his hands because he wasn't an established route runner. Also, I think those confidence issues are more evident in the return game as he isn't always believing what he's seeing.

Schilens you idiot lol, that was sick

Morrison is not being that leader you need in the middle. When you are the leader of a team you judge yourself before you judge your teammates.

SwagU
01-03-2010, 04:16 PM
Lechler continues to be our best player lol. Even when the team is down in the gutter he has always shined. Possibly the best punter ever.

You also have to hold your teammates accountable. IIRC, that's what he was doing.

I'd have to see it again, but I'm certain it was not all him. That was a complete defensive breakdown where no one had contain (a common theme in today's game) from what I recall and a very poor effort from our front four. Baltimore's interior line is dominating as I expected and collectively that entire line may be the best we have faced all year.

RaiderNation
01-03-2010, 04:59 PM
Stopped them, lets get some points

Oh no! They put the big dummy in the game.

Kinda ****** they didn't let Frye finish the game. He was having an alright game too.

remind me again why we couldnt resign chris carr? sure could use him with no return game to speak of and no depth at CB.

its laughable, you cant keep jamarcus on the bench because hes the only QB on the depth chart that is big and strong enough to survive behind our o line.

Wow Russell actually lead his receiver perfectly that time and was accurate. I think now we should check if pigs can fly.

I think it's suppose to be that QB on our team that can't read a defense, is dumb as ****, is so unaccurate and can't complete a pass if his life depended on it. But it can't be him he is actually doing well.

Mitchell was terrible. He was guarding nobody in the flats on that reception.

locseti
01-03-2010, 05:37 PM
that TD i blame solely on Russel's non-existent football instincts. how many times did we see gradkowski or frye stand right in the chaos of the collapsing pocket and try to heave an off-balanced throw? I remember them trying to move around and get free to complete a pass.

SwagU
01-03-2010, 05:37 PM

I think he forgot McClain was his man on that play. Can't believe a whole camp and season and still doesen't know who to cover.

Heres our chance to come back in this game... IDK why but this is what Im feeling. We are going to score a td and not get the 2 points. We will somehow get the ball back and Janikowski is going to try a long FG. IDK if it goes in this is just what Im feeling

Darrius is much more raw,and he has only played with Grad a few games.

Cornell Green with another penalty. That guy is so anti-clutch.

VERY bad, as well as a LT. We have significant needs to address. I'm still expecting Joe Haden, not that it would be a bad pick, just another enticing toy that does nothing for us in retrospect.
