Chuck Bresnahan is the reason why Routt and others on the defense didn't play as well as they could have. The Raiders have always picked corners for their ability to bump and run.
They're not good at reading the quarterback's eyes and breaking on the ball. You'd think that Bresnahan would understand his personnel and allow them to do what they do best—bump and run.
And when they get beat in zone so may times, go on back to man defense and give them their best chance to succeed. Bresnahan acts like Rolando McClain is Derrick Brooks, putting him in deep coverage with Calvin Johnson.
If that isn't enough, he didn't learn his lesson, setting McClain up for failure again with Vincent Jackson. I'm just trying to think of why you play Tampa 2 with bump-and-run personnel.
I always say you can't get whiskey out of a bottle of wine.
So why did Bresnahan take a bottle of wine and keep expecting whiskey to come out?
Isn't that the definition of insanity?
There you have it.
That's my 10 most disappointing Raiders of 2011 and I'm sticking to it.
I've changed them up enough already.
