Default Raiders get hosed once again

That was the most effed up game I've watched in a while. We won that game. They took it from us. 2 52 yarders. I mean come on, you have to notify the officials if you plan to do that. The officials shouldnt have recognized it. Janikowski is not gonna make that kick twice. 52 yds aint no gimmee.

Anyway, here are some things I noticed in the game -

-McCown started, WTF, he was doubtful. Turned the ball over again, missed open receivers (especially Porter near the end of the game that would've sealed the win.) Ya, he's a courageous guy, and can give you a lift, but hes an above avg backup. A guy you can count on to give you a chance. His management late in the game was mediocre at best, having to waste timeouts and showing a lack of urgency on the final drive of regulation. He also shows a lack of urgency when getting away fromt he line and handing the ball off on a running play. Daunte should be the starter. McCown has time behind the line, I cant wait to see what Daunte can do. McCheckdown makes too many mistakes and has trouble getting the ball downfield. Put Daunte in and see what he can do, after all, he won the competition in preseason.

- Im really starting to question the lack of blitzing. I didnt see any at all. We cant just rush 4 and play straight up every play. We need to mix things up, especially against a young QB. Put some effing pressure on him. Our guys are smart enough to play in a more dynamic scheme. We always have 5 DB's out there and Routt sucks.

- Schwigey is terrible. Missing tackles, blowing coverages. Did anybody see the play where he 'tried' to meet Henry straight up and got blown up for 10 more yards. I know henry stepped out of bounds 6 yards into him, but still, Schwigey didnt know that. Rarely seen around the ball, except for the instances in which he gets burned and has to try and making a TD saving tackle. Great call cutting Darius.

-LaMont and the running game are revving up. If we had a competent QB in there, we could really do some damage on the offensive side of the ball.


Great comeback once again, but McClown is just not a starting QB - Daunte is proven and we really have nothing to lose. Make the change already.

I pretty much agree, especially about McCown and the D.

I liked what McCown did last game, but today he was just plain bad. I was hesitant to call for C-Pep during the week, but McCown's performance today changed my mind. We need to stretch the opponents D more often instead of automatically going to the checkdown option.

As for the D, I think Rob Ryan needs to recognize that good things happen with our D when we pressure the QB. We only blitzed a few times all game, but each time there was a positive result.

And friggin Shwigey, he took bad angles on back to back plays that allowed Denver to get 2 huge gains (Romance Taylors big run and the pass play that followed). God I hate him.

Schweigert was horrible in that game. I know he isn't the best in coverage but there is no excuse for missing tackle after tackle. He better step up or his job will be in jeopardy.

were in desperate need of a NB.
CJ 4 catches 70 yards and a TD I believe.
Stokely 3 catches for 43 yards and a TD.
Routt sucks in both zone and in man.Time to look for his replacement.
Huff did mediocre overall but looked a bit better against the run.
Fabs looks worse than last year.
I put the blame on Perry and Hanson.No need to hire these idiots.And now we look worse in coverage.Not that the lack of pressure helps.

I thought Huff looked much better than average yesterday. *shrug* Still learning, but he is becoming noticeable for good reasons rather than bad ones...

I really believe the answer to this problem is converting Huff to DB for the year and letting BJ Ward start at SS, Ward is a force as a tackler and is servicable in coverage, Huff has the skills to be a cover corner and looks ok in zone, but much better than Routt.

Dunno if I'd go that far. I like McCown's attitude, and at least Lane Kiffin is going to give him a decent shot. I think if Kiffin does end up switching QB's it will be a permanent change, and I don't think McCown has been that bad to be sent to the bench forever.
