There you go, another terrible game from your 2009 Oakland Raiders.
You know why it hurts so bad this time of year? Because you came into the season with high expectations. Maybe you were even trying to be realistic with a consevative 7 win prediction.
Now it is clear, this team isn’t good. At 1-4, there is little hope.
My game preview was pretty spot on. Bradshaw killed the Raiders defense. I want Rob Ryan back?
This defense should be better, why is it worse? Must be Davis meddling in the gameplan.
Stop with the Russell bashing at this point, he didn’t even have a chance Sunday. The defense spotted the Giants 14 points before the Raiders could run their fourth offensive play. We have wailed on him enough, and you will have more chances.
There is some kind of sickness in the Raiders organization. I think it is a virus called Al Davis. Call it the silver and black plague.
I respect what Davis has done, but he needs to know when to quit. His methods aren’t working anymore. He cares more than anyone, he still knows football, but just as things change on the field, things change in the way you run an organization.
I do like Tom Cable, but his playcalling is dictated by Davis and his incident was caused because Hanson was feeding information to Davis about John Marshall’s defense. Hanson was hired by Davis without Cable’s signing off on it.
That put Cable in a tough spot. Things get heated in camp, that added pressure was too much for Cable to overcome.
I’m starting to wonder if the Raiders win another game. I think they should, but how infected with this plague are the players and coaches? I am no doctor, but I can tell they all need one.
