It looks like Fargas and McFadden got hurt. We wont know the extent of Fargas’ groin injury for sometime, but Lane Kiffin said McFadden had a toe injury that looks like Turf Toe. Turf toe is a three week injury. So for all of you who drafted McFadden and Fargas in Fantasy Football, pick up Michael Bush.
Players of the Game: Besides the obvious, my gameball goes to Gerrard Warren on defense and Mario Henderson on Offense.
Warren was all over the place and the main reason Larry Johnson had a 1.8 ypc day. Mario played extremely well protecting Russell’s blindside and in the run game.
It was a tremendous win. After the adrenaline rush of the game clears my system, I’ll have a more comprehensive review, but as it is now, we dominated every aspect of the game.
A much stiffer challenge awaits us in Buffalo. Buffalo is 2-0 and beat a good Jacksonville team today.
I’m not trying to stir up any animosity or anything, but there is something to be said for Al Davis making a road game. He usually stays at home for road games.
Please Note: I beat all the Raiders beat writers to the McFadden injury.
The Four Letter Word is reporting that Kiffin could be fired, even with the win today. I wouldn’t say that is the brightest move heading into Buffalo next week. If he is going to do it, he should wait until the bye week to give the new head coach time to regroup and establish a report with players.
