Terrible play call by Oakland

December 11, 2011

We have a WR who has dropped 3 easy passes – let’s waste a first down play by throwing deep to him. Bad decision.


Raider tackling

December 11, 2011

I have seen 3 plays now when a Raider defender has gotten a Packer offensive guy wrapped up only to have the Raider guy then leave his feet to drive the Packer into the ground. I have some concerns about injuries in this one. I don’t know enough about the 2011 Raiders to call them dirty but different guys on their defense have done this and it doesn’t look good.

Anyone watch the Detroit/MN game?

December 11, 2011

The ending of that game was really not fair. The Vikings should have had at least another opportunity to try to score from the goal line. While the announcer was busy screaming and trying to whip up excitement for Detroit making a big defensive play, I was stuck on the fact that DeAndre Levy grabbed Joe Webb’s face mask – and turned it. Should have been a penalty and time restored to the clock (not exactly sure how that works but I know a game cannot end on a defensive penalty). Just an awful no call and it was very obvious considering Webb was running with the ball at that moment.

DJ Smith active early

December 11, 2011

He looks really good (even though I suspect he was in error on the coverage when Louis Murphy picked up that wide open 3rd down conversion on the previous drive). Still, he looks good out there.

Our defense is highly questionable

December 11, 2011

The Raiders offense is just not as good as we’re making them look so far.

Nicely done by Grant there

December 11, 2011

Nice hole he had, but Grant also made a quick decision/cut that opened up that run. Beauty and nice to see. The blowout is on.

Terrible throw by Palmer – will be one of many such throws

December 11, 2011

Ugly pass by Palmer – at least 4 Packers surrounding that 1 Raider.

Packers/Raiders Preview

December 11, 2011
  • Stop Michael Bush. That’s it. Palmer doesn’t have viable WRs who can hurt the Packers. The only way the Raiders make a game of it today is if the Packers can’t tackle Michael Bush. The Packers have had trouble tackling bigger backs this year (Blount, Jacobs, etc) but my guess is that we’ll stuff the box with a bunch of guys and make Carson Palmer throw the ball a bunch – leading to a bunch of turnovers.
  • Expect at least 2-3 picks today by the Packers.
  • Expect at least 4 sacks.
  • Expect this to be one of those random quality defensive efforts for this year’s Packers. Despite being without Bishop again, the Pack will get the job done.
  • Today is the break-out day for Brandon Saine. Enjoy watching a back who could really help this team this year and in the future.
  • Not much to say in this preview. Packers 37, Raiders 16.

No surprise Eagles fans

Read here about Eagles’ fans making Casey Matthews’ (Clay’s brother, special teamer for Philly fiancee cry. Lame. Worst part is that Philly fans probably read this with pride thinking “yeah, that’s how we roll.” Tools.
