I know, I know, I already saw your 2 pictures of a single down where Kuper's helmet came off and he made a funny face, but the slowest QB known to man still got the pass off.

Congrats on that.

That's just one example. The only thing that will the Donkey OL and Manning out is his quick release. If not, Manning is in a world of hurt.

Anyway, most other teams don't have the experience the Raiders have with bringing in vets who are on their last leg. We've seen it go well with some guys but not so well with most.

That said, Manning would seem to be the type of guy who could take a year off and have multiple surgeries and come back okay from it. But if I were a Denver fan, I'd be cautiously optimistic at best until I saw real results on the field in a real game. And if Manning does go down, that's it. They'll lose every single game he doesn't play in.

If it was my job to make predictions, I'd pick Denver to win the division. It's the safest bet. But they're not gonna roll through it like they think they will.

Very few people are suggesting that we're a lock. We're relatively well positioned, but in no way are we a lock to win the division.

1. Oakland's projected started cornerbacks are Ronald Bartell and Shawntae Spencer. Both players are 30 years old and were released by their previous teams. The Raiders figure to change from their decades-old approach of cornerback and the pieces from the previous regime don't necessarily fit.

2. Starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain hasn't performed to his draft level and he's facing 180 days in prison. If McClain has to go to jail during the season, untested third-year player Travis Goethel is projected to start. The other starting linebackers are Aaron Curry and free agent pickup Philip Wheeler. There are a lot of moving parts here. There aren't many difference makers.

3. The defensive line should lead the way, but it's worth noting Richard Seymour and Tommy Kelly are not exactly ascending players. Seymour is the consummate pro but he can't be expected to dominate at age 33. Seymour is set to make $15 million, a figure worthy of a dominating player. Kelly will make $6 million.

4. Allen would love to show 3-4 fronts this year, but he doesn't yet have the personnel to do it.

5. This is a defense is transition. We know Allen is creative, but there are no easy answers with a cornerback group as shaky as this one. This team finished 29th in both points and yards allowed last year.

We wouldn't expect much improvement from the group this year, which will be tough to take for a defensive-minded coach like Allen

Yes you did. That was all the talk before the game by the announcers. This was the Denver Peyton Manning's dress rehearsal and the first time they were going to play like they would in a regular season game.

And I'm loving that your answer to Carson Palmer going the entire preseason doing nothing but throwing picks. I am sure not throwing a touchdown since new years day is easily justified with "Were jus gonna run all the time dood" on the legs of glass running back McGee.
I'm not high on Palmer or the this offense that replaced our last one. I've said that multiple times here. I acknowledge the bad picks he's thrown and I know that that's different from the ones that have bounced right off a receiver's hands.

And what's wrong with pointing out that we threw the ball way more than we would in a normal situation? That's just the truth.

You wrongly conclude that me giving a bigger picture than what the stats say is that I think our offense is going to be a prolific scoring machine. It's not. For analysis like that, ask 9175; he seems to enjoy perpetuating the Raider fan stereotype.

Quote:
When we put 25 points on you in one half, really excited to see come from behind by running.
25? That's an odd number of points to score. That's what, 3 touchdowns, a missed extra point, a field goal, and a safety. Or three touchdowns and two safeties. Or 4 touchdowns and 3 missed extra points. Or seven field goals and two safeties. Or 11 safeties and a field goal. Or six field goals and a touchdown (with the extra point). Or two touchdowns, three field goals and a safety. Or...

Why not just make it an even 70 and predict ten touchdowns?

Which announcers are you listening to? Joe Buck says about 45 seconds into the broadcast that "neither team game planned for today."

Here is video evidence of John Fox saying "We're not game planning."

They were both injured, both are fine now.

Phillip Wheeler is a much better player than you are giving him credit for here, and miscast in that dopey Tampa 2 defense in Indy.

So we're going to have "too many moving parts" and lack continuity, but we're going to be worse because of last year's stats

They just aren't very good even if healthy. Very avg corners nowhere near as good as Bailey, Porter, Harris

I wouldn't know but this sounds like a reach.

But our defense has young studs for pass rushers, yours does not.

The reason the Broncos defense improved in 2011 wasn't Allen. It was drafting Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil returning from a torn pec. Last time I checked the only legitimate pass rush specialist in oakland left town along with your leading rusher and best corner.

They basically replaced Wimbley with Wheeler and Dave Tollefson who had 5 sacks last year to Wimbley's 7 or whatever it was.





Quote:
While the Raiders won’t be looking for Phillip Wheeler replace Wimbley’s pass rushing abilities, it is worth noting that while playing linebacker at Georgia Tech he totaled 18.5 sacks in 3 years from the linebacker position. One scouting report had this to say of Phillip Wheeler about his time in college “considered by many as one of the nation’s best-blitzing linebackers”.
He was playing in a backpedal in Indy. He is a downhill player and not as big of a liability in coverage as Wimbley was.

People overrate Routt. He has zero feel for the game and is only good turning and running with a guy. We figure to run a multiple look defense and not the dopey single high safety, no blitz, every snap with man outside.

I think he will struggle in KC much the way Asomougha did in Philly when asked to do anything but get his hands on the receiver and knock him off his route.

18.5 sacks in 3 years? That is what Von Miller calls not impressive (Miller had 17 in his junior year and 10.5 in his senior year).

Routt did commit a ton of penalties but will have the luxury of being a #2 in kc (thank goodness the hunt's are so cheap and let Carr go) but he's still better than Bartell or Spencer.

Megatron had 1 catch for 7 yards. So they must be doing something right.

Spencer and Bartell have experience in defenses that play in multiple schemes rather than the standard four-man line with a single deep safety and man-to-man coverage the Raiders have always run.

Routt's inability to play zone made him a poor fit even without his absurd contract. I think the Chiefs got fools gold there. The guy is a penalty machine.

Bartell & Spencer have a total of 19 interceptions in 15 combined seasons. Defensive minded Jeff Fisher cut Bartel paid Finnegan 50 million dollars took a chance on drafting Janoris Jenkins. What does that tell you?

And how long did Clavin Johnson play? The guy lit you up last year for 215 yards. Not much going on when the dude plays less than two quarters and they pull Stafford early.

Amazing a teams loses their good pieces in the offseason and thier fans still think they just got better. They are the Cubs of the NFL except many don't bother to go to the games when they suck. Safety then becomes a reality when going to Oakland.
