No. I hate that. That is incorrect. 

 

You're right if we're talking the post season or just the static W/L column on paper. There's a difference between winning and not losing, as semantic laden as that comment may appear. 

 

Straight up, we only won because the Raiders are terrible. We can't make those mistakes going forward.

Agree to disagree

I mentioned it before a win is maybe a win but a hit on Luck can be one hit to much and then we are really in trouble! I can live with the blown assignments on defense in the first game, but the O-Line issues have to be fixed FAST. The line scares the hell out of me. And yeah I know it will improve but thats what we said last year too and the year before...

I just hope we see OG Hugh Thornton starting sooner than later. I don't know if I can take much more of McGlynn.

 

Our lack of pass rush was pretty evident today as well. They were missing their 2 starting OTs, and we still couldn't generate much pressure. I know part of that is because of Pryor's ability to escape, but we couldn't even get close to him on many occasions.

 

The good thing is usually teams take a few weeks to get in sync, so hopefully we get this team finely tuned soon and improve the pass rush and OL woes, along with some other areas of deficiency.

Pryor will give several teams troubles, until he takes a real hard hit. Then the trick will be over. This is what all teams who utilize mobile quarterbacks will eventually have to deal with. 

That post could come back to bite you in the behind since our QB ran quite a bit today if I remember correctly. :)

Different. Luck isn't out there trying to make plays with his legs and I doubt he was even thinking touchdown on his scoring run.

He was trying to keep the drive alive so that is making plays with his legs in my book. :thmup:  Admit it Luck will run with the best of them to keep the drive going.  Just hate to see him get injured doing so.

Now what could possibly be different about that? He was out there running the ball and getting hit and sacked in the pocket. You all know where that will lead eventually. It isn't a matter of "if" but "when."

I hear that, he badly botched a block on a defender who should've sacked Luck. Luckily, even though the guy wrapped Luck up he still got away and turned it into a 9-10 yard first down run. I did not expect that play to happen. Luck is one absolutely stong guy. haha

Where are these posters coming from? I have never seen half of these people who are losing their minds today.

Not to mention we won.

You know what they call teams and players who win when they aren't playing good, or at their best? Great.

Anyone remember we lost to the Jags last year? Did that stunt our season, or prove we weren't good. No. Any given Sunday.

The Raiders came out playing pretty tough on D once they settled down. And frankly our D got caught with their pants down when Pryor started running, but they made the play when it was most vital. That sack, int was big time. Because its game over without them.

Calm down. Oh did I mention its the first game of the year? Did I also mention we won? Not sure many are getting that.

hmmm...so he was making plays with his legs?

 

That is not his game. He occasionally does make a few plays with his legs, but he is a pocket passer. 

 

Nothing like Pryor who plays the game 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage.

If you don't know the difference between having to run to avoid sacks or it being the only option left to make a positive play, and them actually setting up designed runs for your QB, then I really really feel sorry for you.  When you have designed runs, which Pryor did today, and the other QBs running the read option do, you are opening the door that much wider for the "when".  Although, I don't know why I bothered with this post, a conversation with the wall will probably be more fruitful.

I said "when he runs" not that is his game and he always runs to set up the pass

 

Raiders played a good game. Pryor played well. You have a lot to be proud of.

 

Now as far as Luck becoming a running quarterback; that is not who he is.

1). I am a Colts fan, idk why you think im a raiders fan... 2). I said that WHEN Luck runs, he is making plays with his legs (since he is a smart player who only runs when he needs to) 3). You said he doesn't make plays with his legs, i said he does which is obvious because he scored a td doing it today and he avoids sacks all the time.

Are you having fun arguing with yourself?

What makes you say that? I'm arguing with you, and you're completely wrong. 

 

How I am wrong?

 

Did you read this:

Colts can't tackle. They can't stop the run. Too many blown assignments. Not too much to be proud of today for the Colts.

 

 

Can you name one of the real Raider running backs we couldn't stop today?  If we played the Lions Stafford sure as heck couldn't do what Pryor did today. Who else do you have left to give you any indication that a running back could do the same thing the quarterback did today?  Running as a last resort is not the same as a designed running play.  

 

Worry about that non playoff team of yours.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
