Talk about a beat down that wasnt worth watching after the second quarter. From not so special teams to 3 blown coverages in the first half the Raiders can not and will not win with play like this. I stopped counting dropped passes at 4 and that was in the first half alone. This was the first game this season where Jamarcus actually looked posied and ready to go. As a QB theres no way you can get into any kind of groove when your wideouts drop easy passes. Forget about the drops, how much does the o-line miss Gallery. The offensive line is just plain offensive. From bad run blocking to not giving time to throw the ball. Heres to hoping that Jamarcus continues to play like he did today for the rest of the season. Now im not saying that he was perfect today but compared to the first 3 weeks it was a complete 360 turn around in play. This is going to be a long season and hopefully DHB, Murphy and Jamarcus can just develop together and be force for next season. As of now the Raiders do not have the talent on the o-line or d-line to compete in this league. The whole o line needs to be addressed outside Gallery and as for the D line both Kelly and Warren wouldnt even be starters for other teams in this league. With the Giants, Eagles and Jets coming up we could be looking at a 1-6 record easy.
