The Run Defence Is Straight Up Ugly

george lopezCorrespondent IAugust 24, 2009

The Raiders defence hasen't been very effective against the run in the past years, and it doesn't look to be getting any better after being ran all over by  Glen Coffee who ran for 129 yards on 16 carries.

Glen Coffee isn't even the 49ers starter and he's looking like LT of the chargers.  The raiders have a lot of issues to work on and hopefully Tom Cable knows how to address them.  The 49ers averaged 5.9 yards a carry.

The big men aren't getting it done.  Tommy Kelly has one tackle this preseason. Trever Scott 1 tackle as well not exactly starting material.  Gerrard Warren 3 tackles, and Greg Ellis 2 tackles, none of the starters on the depth chart have any sacks. 

If the defensive lines can't sack the quarterback or stop the run what excatly is the point of them. 

The Raiders need new defensive lineman.  The only player that is starter material is Greg Ellis.

This whole preseason the raiders have only two  sacks.

Jerome McDougle former Eagle is an option an option for raiders but i think they should trade for another defensive lineman.

The Raiders might also want to get Derrick Brooks
