Saints Raiders MNF


Recommended Posts

I think it would be good to see them get a W in their new digs but.......I gotta go with the team with the better roster, and that team resides in New Orleans.  Thomas being out will hurt, but it's not like they don't have anybody else on offense and that defense is not exactly chopped liver.  I see something like 34-27 Saints.

I'm taking the team with Josh Jacobs.

Saints are pretty good vs the run. It will be impressive if Jacobs gets 100+. IMO, Carr will need to do his share if da Raidas come out on top.

Does the new Raiders joint look like a roomba

it's a badazz stadium. The floating natural grass that is moved outdoors during the week is mind blowing.

 

The eternal flame is a bit much though...

I really don't like the fake crowd noise. It's ridiculous with an empty stadium to be honest. 

I don't mind the noise.  I just think there's too much of it.  Way too loud.  Can barely understand the announcers.

In my week 2 score prediction, I had the Raiders upsetting the Saints. Lets see if it holds up and they pull off the upset.

Well with calls like I just saw, safe to say NFL really wants Vegas to win it’s opener.

We drafted the Raiders Kicker Daniel Carlson in the 5th round a few years ago. Zimmer cut him after he missed 3 FGs in his first or second game. He was picked up by the Raiders and has been great!

My post did not age well.   Congrats to the Raiders, they looked pretty good.  Got the W in their new stadium.

 

I still don't know what is what in this league yet.

So, the Saints are not that elite team that Brady and the Bucs lost to?? Hmmm...:scratch:

LOL. No kidding. Week one major over-reaction. What has become clear is if the Saints continue to struggle with Brees' decline, the NFC South will be a worse division than the AFC East this year. Now how did that happen right when Brady landed there??? O.o

    • They just beat one that is sometimes in the GOAT discussion. Does thatcount?
    • I'd throw Pittsburgh in there too. 
    • The red zone % can be misleading. Looking at that, one would not expect 7-3.  I find our offensive rz % more concerning than our defensive #. However, ifYOUR offense is in rz more often than opponent, and THEIR offense is kept out of rz more than your offense, you can better afford these #s.   Concerning, yes, but i would argue, at 7-3, there is more going on than rz % by itself. 
    • ? Rivers is the QB and the leader of this team. Yes the strong point of our team is the defense but it it still the offense that scores the points to win.  I agree that no one player is responsible but his veterans leadership means more than you want to give any credit.  Just because he is not a Mahomes or a Wilson does not devalue what he is to this team.  With the help of the defense he pretty much equaled Rogers this last week.  He has already done more for this team than a lot of fans thought he would. 
    • I don’t mean to split hairs....   But while freely admitting 2020 Rivers isn’t 2010 Rivers or even 2018 Rivers, he’s certainly much better than 2019 Rivers.  He’s having a very good year, and he’s doing that without the weapons that other QB’s have.   And he’s doing it without the expected running game until this week.      2020 Rivers is also clearly better than 2019 Brissett, so I’m not ready to discount his responsibility for our current 7-3.  I agree things could still come off the rails.   I agree that the defense and ST get equal or greater credit, but still...   Rivers is driving our offensive train in a way JB could not.  So it feels that at least thru 10 weeks, at least, he’s deserving of more credit than you’re currently offering.    Did I thread that very small needle?
