Week 3: Ring Envy
Ring Envy: Raiders@Patriots
Time for some Gruden Redemption!
D got 3 and out!
Jacobs looks healthy
Lets go Defense.
Maxx jumped. Can't do that on 4th.
Sack MADD MAX
Defense Looks Great So Far !!!
Is that our D? woo hoo
Carr is heating up now.
Had a great drive going, then we fumble.
I just fucking new that was coming.
Turnover in the red zone. Ouch.
Damn...Jacobs fumble. Shit
Was that a fumble?
Abram made up for the bullshit
Wish we got 7, but 3 will do.
Seemed like he was looking for Edwards, but he fell down. Looked like he was favoring his leg too
Playing undisciplined now
Getting a lot of penalties so far.
Harris is a liability. The wheels are coming off of the defense right now.
Harris didn’t bite in the pump fake. Defense playing well so far. Mullen is truth
Man if they could just generate some pressure, I like the secondary pretty well
Turning the ball over too much.
Lets go DEFENSE
Uhhh. Can't let NE get turnovers. Raiders are shooting themselves in the foot.
They are on the field too long.
What's going on with Taylor. Raiders can't stop him.
Newton is not having a great game. The Raiders have to stop Taylor. The defense needs a rest.
Raiders looking like shit today
Why didn’t Gruden challenge that first “fumble”!? Jacobs CLEARLY recovered!
It was automatically reviewed so he couldn’t
Well lucky we got it back, a few plays later, with the interception.
Damn Abram! Had him in the backfield
Defense getting tired
Yep, the Offense can’t sustain drives, they take away Waller, Raiders can’t seem to get a good drive going.
missing henry ruggs big time,no threat outside what so ever,patriots crushing 20 yds and in only
Where is Gafford? Figured they would use him in place of Ruggs
That was fucking terrible
Who is the color commentator for this game? I want to kick him in the nuts...
shit fuck these announcers too man they just love hating on the raiders
we should have gafford just to threaten over the top
Getting out coached on both sides
damn it,just look at our offense minus ruggs "it's 2019 all over again"
we bout to get hosed
Gotta have that go against us....fuck
No TD. What do we do now? No Time Outs.
Its been fun guys, see you all next week.
ok, lets attack them long next half
So proud of DC!!!!! Damn man each week he is levelling up! Can't complain about this first half. It wasn't the best but finished strong.
I just saw Gafford on special teams, why isn't he in there to take the top off
We get the ball in the 3rd. Gruden better make adjustments to match Bellycheck.
We aint dead.
This is definitely not the Raiders of Carr of old. I like what I am seeing! Everyone is giving it 100% out there. Freakin outstanding. Cheating ass Pats won't be able to rely on the refs if we keep playing like that last drive.
We look like the better team. Too many mistakes gave NE the lead.
Yup! With all these injuries and main weapons not at 100% Gruden has to keep surprising old Bill.
Good things happen to you If you stretch the field.
Hunter the mother fucking Renfrow.
damn "were still in it"definitely not like 2018 or 2019"where we would have folded already,we still got a chance for the w but need to be more aggressive down the field,renfrow balling with waller getting taken away,need nelson,zay and edwards to step up
Damn that looked like it hurt
Well how about that!! Carr looks pretty good second half! Glad it isn't cold over there in Boston. I hope they keep up this intensity! Edwards is a beast of a rookie nice catch and finish.
that didn't look good
With our luck he tore his ACL he should have just went down
Damn, miss FG.
That should have been an easy kick for Carlson. Uhhhhh!!!!
Can’t miss FG, against a good team.
i think its apparent, we dont have a run defense this season
MAD MF Max Crosby
Sack 2 for Maxx.
Defense is still bending.
Two score lead now.
THis is what it is like getting out-coached. I hope they adjust.
Yes its game over.
Nothing fancy there. Just got MANHANDLED
If we don't score 30 we dead lol
Never a fan of that type of hit that Abrams tried to make, have to wrap up the guy instead of lowering your shoulder and whiffing
Raider D can't stop the run.
I don’t see them getting out coached. They are running pitch plays and dives. They are flat out getting pushed around and missing all kinds of tackles. Defense still sucks.
Missing that kick was a big fuck up
Another case of a missed FG leading to a TD. Freakin 10 pt swing. Not going to be easy to come back from that. TD here or its a wrap.
Put in Gafford, at least for decoy
I’d be in favor of going NO HUDDLE right now
Two 3 yard gains and its 3rd down.
I think that ball was for Waller and he stopped
Bad throw by Carr on that drive, three and out.
Game fucking over
3 and out. Just what our defense needs. No rest.
too conservative. we are going to get blown out at this point.
Draft 2 WR to address one of our biggest needs. Both hurt by week 3. We are cursed at this position.
Carr is not getting a lot of time in the pocket. Missing Rich I.
defense isn't stopping the run, can't be conservative, have to take chances.
Shit the bed again. Fuckin sad. Turning this bullshit off. Same ol Raiders just can't put it all together. Guess i will go mow the fucking yard.
This fucking defense is PUTRID
Bottom line. Our defense is bad, they can't tackle for shit. Our QB is a giant pussy. Enjoy another year of ups and down without much progress.
My god.....how many times is Abram gonna whiff on tackles
Yeah this is ALL on Carr being a pussy....
This defense is gassed
They have been on the field too long.
Abram has been terrible today for sure
Hung in there for a while. Just feel like this game has gotten away from us. Seaon definitely ain't over!
If we don't score a TD on this dive it's game over
have to come out throwing for chunks, can't keep doing the same thing.
They should make a stop and get some water
We NEED Brown and Incognito back immediately
Jacobs has not had a good gain in a while.
Wow. NE out of TOs.
Same. I think Jacobs is hobbled
defense needs to stop the run
Dang it, I mean there is still a chance but the way the defense has been playing I don't know. Go Raiders!
They just keep pounding him up in there again and again
turnover would be big now
3rd and 7 throw it 2 yds? And lead the receiver out of bounds so he has no chance to run with it?
Same problem as last year, not scoring when we get the red zone
Message to Gruden. Waller is double teamed. Stop calling plays to him. Jacobs is not getting it done Today. Stop handing it off for short gains. No more FGs. Its the 4th qtr.
He won't last long with how much we use him. Most likely will be broken by 28/29/30
Same fucking plays killing this defense over and over
Defense is done. Offense hasn't done anything to help them today.
Game Over !!!
Yup out-coached and stuff...
It is what it is. He chose to throw it for a 2 yd gain with no chance to pick up a first down on 3rd and 7. That's the choice he made. It is what it is. Might as well just throw the ball away.
Bad performance on all sides of the ball today against a team that is really beatable. I predicted us to lose but after watching this all we had to do was basic fundamentals to keep the game close - stop arm tackling, stop over pursuing on runs, stop taking bad angles for tackles, stop leaving gaps wide open, etc.
Could also be Belichick making mid-game adjustments from series to series outcoaching Gruden and Guenther at every step of the way. It's a poor showing all around. This team isn't really that talented at the moment.
Give up 235 on the ground and you’re out coached?
Is there a reason we paid Littleton all that money? Thought he was good?
The left tackle got blown up on the play. There wasn’t time to look elsewhere.
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such poor tackling. We’ve had tons of chances to make stops for losses but whiff and they get 15 yards on the play.
Defense sucks moose dick
Playcalling on O has been dogshit, why did we go away from the run so early when it was working?!!
Inside runs. Outside runs. Kept our defense guessing. Wrong. Plus completely took away our best player.
damn it,pats adjusted game plan,raiders didn't and getting beat
out coached, our d-line is not good, linebackers non-existent, no one to stretch the field, we have Gafford and let him stay on the sidelines and play special teams. Carr did ok. run defense let this team down.
They had a shot to win today. They played sloppy and paid for it. Guess they couldn’t handle prosperity and keep up the momentum from last weeks big win. Short week probably didn’t help. Need Brown and Incognito, need Ruggsand Edwards to get right also
They took away Waller and the offense looked just meh. The defense is trash. Better be ready for the 40+ burger KC is gonna hang on us twice this year
Did you see the adjustments Patriots made in the run game? Inside didn't work in 1st quarter so they did misdirection and outside runs. Then 2nd quarter they bring Michel in for the inside runs. Then go back to outside runs and continue to mix and match.Yes, that's playcalling and coaching making adjustments on the fly throughout the game. Something Raider coaches haven't done for 30 years. Continue being dumbfounded though.
“You alway like having a chance if you’re a Raider fan”—Tony Romo
We already know how this is going to end.
Just had to let the Patriots get over 30 today. Gotta love it.
I think since Gruden has been here, we've been blown out in every game Romo and Nance have called
man I hope they learn from this game
We got completely jobbed on the first fumble & Carlson missed a very makeable FG.
There comes a time when you stay in your gaps and be sound in your tackling. They did NEITHER today and that ain’t coaching ASSHOLE.
you have a guy just as fast as Ruggs in Gafford, yet you don't put him in to take off the top. Why?
Shilique fucking Calhoun....can't make this up
NE knows how to exploit your weaknesses and keeps pounding you when they find it. I think we are better at making half time adjustments this year, but the opposing coach was just too good.
Or we just aren't that good. This defense is still bad. The offense had their best weapon taken away and we looked completely off balance
We need to stay to at least 500% through the first half of the season and get past all our injuries.
I think the defensive scheming of NE was really good, very disciplined. Not having Ruggs out there hurt us bad, kept everything in front for the defense.
Tough road game. You cannot let a team score on every possession in the second half and expect to win. Defense can't stop anybody. We can't stop the run or the pass.
Ruggs wouldn't;t have caught a pass. We were going downfield all game without him. You cannot give up 30 points a game an expect to win in the NFL. Thats the bottom line.
