Your 2009 Oakland Raiders.
It was a great game, that is certain. It was a heart breaker. A sea-saw of emotion.
Lets go back to my keys to the game as posted earlier.
Heyward-Bey vs. Cromartie – DHB was a non-factor. That is certainly a concern.
Murphy vs. Jammer – Murphy actually had a good game. A bit inconsistent, but he got open and caught two TDs. One that was taken away.
Henderson vs. Merriman – Merriman’s name wasn’t called. Henderson played great.
Morrison vs Tomlinson – LT was benched for Sproles. However, Morrison made a few key mistakes late in the game that let Sproles get yards. Tough, because he played good otherwise.
Ellis vs. Clary/Vasquez – Ellis and the entire D-line was great, even late in the game.
Morris vs. Williams – Besides on key sack where Morris and Gallery didn’t communicate, Morris played well.
Russell vs Russell – Oh boy. There is a lot here to go over. Saving this for a blog post tomorrow. Raider Nation is certainly getting annoyed with him. He did make the game winning throw. Defense let him down. So…gonna be a lot to go over.
Cable’s Playcalling – Impressed with the guts in playcalling. Seems like he got a little predictable with Russell in the third quarter.
Seymour – Impressive. Scouts think our scheme may liberate him. He looked really good. Imagine what a little more time in the system will do.
