I'll bet Marshawn Lynch is not a happy camper.


Chiefs drafted Kareem Hunt who is looking like the rookie of the year, Raiders got Marshawn Lynch on his last legs....

Yeah. Hunt fumbled on his very first NFL carry and has been beasting every since. Marshawn has to be disappointed by the way the Raiders are playing. He most likely thought as I did, they would be a contender.

LOOK: Raiders' Donald Penn confronts angry fan after loss to Ravens

LINK

Quote:
Penn was clearly aggravated but managed to keep his head and headed back to his car after a short confrontation. He asked security to remove the fans from the area. After the video surfaced online, Penn addressed the incident and said he never should have gotten out of the car. He claimed that the man in the video was trying to provoke him for the purpose of suing him.

Hey we ran the hook and ladder play on a routine 3rd and long in the middle of a competitive game. Why not hail mary instead of punting on 4th downs... Lets completely change the strategy and game plans of conventional NFL offense.

I wanted Musgrave gone and now I want him back, desperately!

On a bright note.

Raiders sign Navorro Bowman to a 1 year 3 mill deal.

That's actually huge for us TBH.

Hope it plugs one of the holes on the sinking ship.

Looking pretty dire for the Raiders now....Lynch expelled from the game for pushing an official. If the Raiders lose tonight I don't see how they can make the playoffs with 5 losses already.

Couldn't agree more with the bolded. I told my friend the same thing last night. We both couldn't stand Musgrave, but now we both direly miss him.

I didn't watch too much of the game as I was at a bar watching the Dodger game. But from what I did see, I saw some of the worst play-calling ever.

Why, when we have a 3rd and 10, do we constantly run patterns that go for like 3 yards? That happened a few times in the 4th quarter yesterday and is so infuriating.

And then some of the passes Carr throws has such little chance of success. Don't understand why we don't play action more and run more crossing patterns. It's so simple when other teams do it to us (well, maybe because our defense is pretty bad).

Anyways, glad we won and beat the Chiefs. Season definitely would've been over had we lost. Hope this is the win that turns this season around.

Todd Downing is a complete and utter piece of crap as our OC. Some of the worst playing calling I've ever seen.

He needs to be fired NOW.

Del Rio needs to answer for that move as well, hiring a rookie OC for this team. He really needed to fire KNJ and keep Musgrave. He really crapped our season down the drain. I'm willing to keep Del Rio for another season but he really needs to address his coaching staff. Same as Luke in Los Angeles.

we can do much better than Del Rio..not sure what he brings to the team? he's clueless about offensive schemes (hired Downing) and let his D get ripped apart every year. And he's a former D coord. awful coach imo

Pathetic.

These guys are gonna have the same record as the Chargers.....
Funny at the beginning of the season everyone though the AFC West would be the toughest division, instead now it is probably the worst division in the NFL.

The offense has no creativity or imagination. The RB situation is a mess, I like Marshawn but heís been done and shouldnít be considered a savior. They need a real every down back. Cooper and Crabtree are legit but they donít use them right. Cooper could be a force underneath and in the slot running screens etc....then we have Ken Norton Jr. heís proven that he canít handle the DC position. Raiders are talented but routinely play the most basic schemes getting torched game in and game out. I watch the Rams and itís compketely the opposite with less talent imo.

Call me crazy but the Raiders need some swagger back. Rex Ryan as DC(he would need some good press corners). As for the OC they need someone aggressive and imaginative, this bs has to stop before we lose the opportunity.

They'd be better off just letting Carr call the game at this point.

To top it off, Denver just made Musgrave their OC. They're gonna drop 50 on us next week.

And I would guess that the Raiders thought that Lynch would bring something to the table
