Off to a slow start, the Raiders proclaimed this week that their answer to a dismal running game is to run more. The fans say that most of the problem is the zone blocking scheme.

Will the Raiders rebound and get a win on the road against a tough Atlanta team?

Will McFadden finally break out and have a big game?

Will we be effective in the Red Zone and find the end zone?

After a bye week with lots of time to practice, I expect a close game and we will be more effective on offense. But I don't think more practice is goint to fix the broken defense. We will lose a close game.

What I am hoping and praying for is ATL take us for granted (like who wouldn't right now) and we snatch this away from them,,,,,,,,,,maybe

Talk about announcers jinxing a team(s),,,,they say the Raiders defense has no interceptions, 2 plays later they get an interception. then they say ATL fieldgaol kicker hasn't missed a FG yet this season,,and he misses. They need to say Carson can't throw the long ball for TD anymore.

BTW,,this is not a very active site (must be too many heathen Charger fans) but we could use a banner update.

Talking to myself here,,,,first,,now the the "real"refs are back we are all of a sudden a dirty penalty causing team again. Such crap what they call on us but not the other guys,,,,,,I though with AL gone the attitude would change but I guess for Mark it's the sins of the father that keep the refs slaughtering us.

Next,,,after much consideration I am not too sold on Run DMC anymore. Seems like he,,and most of the receivers,,were hired for blazing speed but mediocre football skills. That ain't gonna win in the NFL,,but DMC may be hurt as I am writing this anyhow.

Disappointing having to settle for the FG in this situation. Hopefully Run DMC is going to be okay.

Yep in this situation we definitely miss a guy like Bush.

OMG- we're in great shape, could kick a FG to potentially win it, and Palmer gets picked, and the Falcons takes it all the way back for a TD. Should've just ran a running play. Unbelievable!

WTH- that last play was nullified by holding. But no matter- 3rd down conversion by Palmer, ball at the 45. And now a completion to Hagan, who sprints down the sideline to the 6 yard line!

McFadden gets it to the 2- 3 more plays to tie it with 44 secs left.

Run DMC touchdown! What a comeback after that deflating INT! Tie game after Jani extra point.

Let's review the penalty calls now for this game and the number of them called against us,,,,,,,and whomever believes the refs do not have it in for the Raiders need a reality check,,,,,the "REAL' refs and we get penalized 12-2,,at my last count,,may have been worse

^^Ron- yeah we totally need to cut down on the penalties. Nothing we can do about the refs, but the guys can sure try and be more disciplined. It may well have been the difference in the game. This would have been a huge win against one of the best teams, but man instead we drop to 1 and 4. SMH
