3 - 3 .. Bring on the Jets

When you watch the highlight of the Amari Cooper 52-yd TD catch and run, pay close attention to number 61, 6'2" 300 lb Rodney Hudson, 5th-year O-lineman from Florida State (formerly with the Chiefs).

Big Rodney gets out on the pass, shows some good speed and pancakes Charger safety Jahleel Addae.

Now Crabtree just scored; 7-play, 80-yard drive. It's 37-6 and I got goosebumps. It's been a long time since I've seen a dominant Raider performance like this one.

If you've followed my blog, you know I've been down on D. Carr, but today, he is straight BALLING!

The Raiders D is on Phillip River's azzzzz. Don't lighten up, keep the pressure on. This is a statement game for the Silver and Black. It's time we started getting some R-E-S-P-E-C-T !!

1st Marquette King punt came with 6:54 left in the 3rd quarter. King runs on the field with a clean uniform, happy to finally get a chance to play. What I'm seeing now, what did Del Rio and the coaching staff do during the Bye week? Whatever they did, it's working!

I want more points on the board, but it looks like the Raiders are taking their foot off the gas; running the ball, protecting the rock. That's understandable, looks like we have the 'W'.

I wanted to see a TECMO-BOWL-ASS-WHOOPIN!

Letter to my "Raidah Familia"

Chad H. .. really? Because a Raider fan disagrees with your opinion or Derek Carr, you question his loyalty?? With all due respect, that's hogwash!

And Jay Vega love the room, like being a part of the conversation .. but the QB rating means ZERO when Carr is turning the ball over at critical times, and to blame the receiver for the pick 6 is not the way to go.. I was watching the play, it appeared as if Carr audibled at the last minute, which he appears to do quite often, and he was totally fooled by the Denver defense..

Chris V.. to say, "we waited all these years for a QB" .... PLEASE.. dude, the jury's still out on Derek Carr ... we have no idea what type of QB he will be because it is WAY TOO EARLY TO TELL ...

There is no more die-hard a Silver and Black fan than myself.. became a fan at 6 years of age, lived in Oakland until 1991, been a staunch Oakland Raiders fan for over 40 years - through thick and thin ... but I want to WIN .. and I personally don't see a winner in Derek Carr and he has yet to exhibit leadership qualities..

I hope I'm wrong, but you guys can't criticize Raider fans for being down on Carr .. it's about WINNING!!!! What did AL say, "JUST WIN BABY" ... he didn't say, "just come close" .. he didn't say, "Keep that passer rating up" .. his words were "JUST WIN BABY" ...

Carr won 2 games his rookie season .. make all the excuses in the world for him... he won 2 games... he now has talent around him, on both sides of the ball ... so this season, he needs to PRODUCE .. if he doesn't, the TRUE Raider fans, who BLEED SILVER and BLACK, will run his ASS out of town!

It's about the W and nothing else....

Don't Talk About It - Be About It

The Raiders Staff, Players, Coach Del Rio, and all Raider Nation Fans... Need to be quiet and go out on Sunday and stop turning the ball over, stop missing assignments (i.e. leaving players WIDE OPEN), stop the stupid penalties..

Stop holding the wide receivers - right in front of the official and then acting like you didn't do anything - keep Manning off the field by SUSTAINING DRIVES, and play SOUND FOOTBALL ..

Otherwise, all the bravado in the world is not going to get you a WIN ... so PLEASE RAIDER NATION .. let's not talk about it...


I'm SICK of LOSING !!!!
A good team, even a decent team, should have kicked the crap out of Jay Cutler and the Bears. We're definitely in it, at 2-2, not a bad start. Couple our record with the fact that both the Chargers and the Chiefs are also off to a mediocre start.

Sunday's home game against Manning and the Broncos will go a long way in determining what type of team we will become this season. We win, we're 3-2 going into the bye week.
