I've been saying this for weeks.
The Raiders can't run the ball up the middle.
They never could do that this year.
All the damage the Raiders have done running the ball this year has been either off tackle or outside. The only direction the Raiders seems to be able to go in these days is to the left.
Both run and pass, center Samson Satele couldn't handle Kelly Gregg, as he was tossed around all day. Khalif Barnes can't get any push off of the line of scrimmage, and right tackles are expected to do such things.
While Hagan holds up that roster spot, the Raiders need do bring in another guard if Stephon Heyer can't play left guard. That way Stefen, Wisniewski can move to his best position of center, and Bruce Campbell can surely do better than what Cooper Carlisle is right now.
You can't call yourself a bully and not run up the middle.
You can't call yourself a bully if you can only run the ball to one side.
