From the Armchair: Oakland Raiders Week 2

9/16/13 in NFL   |   Cali_Kat   |   15596 respect

Yay! Raiders got a win. Before all you haters and armchair analysts start to rain on my parade, yes I know it was against the Jags. I also know that we are not the best team in the league, but hey a win is a win. I will take it!
Good Stuff:   Marcel Reese scored a rushing touchdown in the first quarter.  Darren McFadden rushed 19 times for 129 yards, his longest of the day was 30 yards. The defense sacked Chad Henne five times. Sebastian Janikowski scored 13 of the 19 points.  The absolute best was watching Charles Woodson fly over 2 players to tackle Maurice Jones Drew and stop him from scoring a TD.  Pryor was starting to play more like a QB, checking down for the open receivers.
Bad Stuff:  Sebastian Janikowski scored 13 of the 19 points. The Raiders need to find a way to get into the end zone. The kicker being the highest scoring player is not going to win you very many games.  Denarius Moore needs to catch the ball, he needs to be consistent. 
Overall:  The Raiders still have a way to go, but I must say I like that they are at least trying. I haven’t seen them play with heart for some time and it feels good.  Maybe they are playing with a chip on their shoulder because so many people count them out, whatever it may be, I am enjoying it! I hope they can win some more. Next up is MNF in Denver. I know this will be a tough game for them, I don’t have super high expectations, and Denver is playing very good right now. I can only hope for the best.

Whether it was against the Jags or not this week, the Raiders looked better last week than people expected, they got a win this week, and even if the Broncos kill them next week you can say "hey - it's the Broncos and Peyton effin Manning!"  That team of yours is looking decent, Ms. Kat.

Kat, you guys are heading up. And don't listen to anything Stoney tells you this week.

The Raiders are heading in a right direction, regardless of what the outsiders have to say!  Of course there's obstacles but it will only make raidernation stronger!

A win can sometimes boost a team into another win. It's possible.
