Are you ready for some football?

The Raiders open the season at home against the Chargers on Monday Night Football. What an opportunity to show a national audience what we got.

Will Carson Palmer step up to the plate and get it done after a disappointing preseason?

Will Run DMC run all over the Chargers?

Will our receiving corp be ready to rumble?

Can we once again become a Red Zone offense?

Will our defense shut down the Philip Rivers and the Chargers?

Who will be our secret weapon this Monday Night?

Who will be our game MVP on Monday Night?

Don't forget to go vote in the poll after you give us your take on the game.

I hear that the game is Sold Out. So you might be able to get a ticket on StubHub etc. Otherwise you are going to have to watch it on TV. Every Sports bar in America will have Monday Night football on, so if you don't have a big screen at home, I am sure you can find a great place to watch the game.

Talking head have the Chargers winning,,gamblers put the Raiders on top. I think the over-confident Charger team will get snake bit.

^^Raiders win and that's happiness- that's for sure El Honcho. I think it's going to be a close game, but I think we'll be able to pull it out, 20-17. What do you guys think will be the score?

I guess Denarius Moore and Terrelle Pryor will not play tonight. No Jacoby Ford either.

Well, it is 7pm and there is still 8 minutes to go in the Baltimore game. I hope this blowout ends soon so the Raider game starts on time. I am watching ESPN coverage in my area.

Everybody has been involved so far. Streater, Hagan DHB and RunDMC have all caught passes.

Our corner gave us a big pass play but our defense held when it counted.

4 quick penalties and we give up a score. Looking like the Raiders of old.

No guts, no glory. 4th and on the 1 yard line, we kick a field goal. Halftime.

After watching the first half I got to say that I like Knapps offense. They called it the Houston West Coast Offense.

Say goodbye to the Al Davis verticle game. This is a grind it out 5-10 yards at a time offense, giving Palmer 3 or 4 options to throw to on every play. Because they are all short routes, Palmer won't have to worry as much about getting sacked, cause he will be dumping it off quick. Joe Montana ridldled teams to death with this offense. McFadden was beautiful in the first half.

We get a decent drive going and then stupid mistakes again. 12 men on the field. Come on. And then a ground ball hike to our punter. Wow.

Damn- we better keep them to a field goal here or else we'd be down by 9 which would be tough to come back from.

McFadden- nice effort but I think he's short. 4th and inches and we're punting- come on! And it's F*CKING blocked. Chargers have it at the 10 yard line. That could be all she wrote.

Okay- false start- if we could somehow keep them to a FG, there's still a chance.

Yeah good to see you here too Brave. Hopefully the guys can pull it out. Can't afford any more mistakes from this point.

We were lucky to hold them to only a field goal. Keeps the game in reach.

Palmer just not in sync right now w/ the receivers. Damn almost another blocked punt- WTH is going on with the protection scheme there?

Defense is looking solid, but man we need to start moving the ball on offense.

The Mo has gone over to the Chargers and our guys are having a hard time getting the offense in sync.

hey Dave look at my posts, does it look on your end like there is a lot of wasted space at the bottom of my posts?

It looks like a bunch of wasted space from my view on BraveRaiders posts. Why is that?

^^Yeah it's because of those stars you have there. I'll look into making them smaller. 19-6 now- one more score and this game is pretty much out of reach the way our offense is sputtering.

I didn't even add those stars. They appeared there all by themselves somehow. I must be a STAR.

Damn that would have been a huge completion. Nice 2nd down throw though, and now a nice 2nd down throw. I'm liking the aggressiveness!

Dave, Condo, our long snapper went down with a head injury early in the game. I guess we don't have a back up guy ready to fill his role and our punting game has been a disaster in the 2nd half.

^^I missed the first half, but I mean come on, there's no backup for such an important position??? It's gonna take a miracle to come back now. We saw signs of this offense sputtering in the pre-season, and it's pretty much the similar situation happening here tonight. Too bad now it counts.

We need a turnover bad. Running out of time.

Oh and 5 game in and Palmer and our first team offense does not have a touchdown yet.

Now that the handcuffs are off Palmer and we're forced to make medium and long throws, we're moving the ball well. Go figure.

OK, a two minute drill to get a score and some respectability.

Now we're playing loose and free and getting the Chargers to commit penalties because of it. Wise lessons for the next game.
