Honestly I think we can win them all. If the defense plays the way we played the last 3wks I dont see any reason why we can't beat any team on our schedule. DA needs to leave Huff & Lee at corner. Let Bartel play back up & some slot depending on the match up. As king as we're getting good play from our LB corp we're fine. It's when they struggle when we have problems. Gio plays FS better than Huff, but Huff is turning into a pretty good corner. Our defense is now complimenting the type of offense DA & Knapp are running. Mcfadden is getting more comfortable running the zbs & Palmer is a machine. I don't mind when he makes a mistake. I know he's gonna make up for. We're clicking, we just have to keep consistant & we can beat any of theml

i say run the hell out of mcfadden again! but different directions. i would probably put bartell instead of pat lee, but? this whole game was mainly about dmac and the (O-line). they protected carson palmer but still could not open holes for dmac. he had to go around them! our whole (O) still looked shakey the first half.
WE CAN STILL BEAT THE BUCCS!

In theory we could win out, unfortunately game isn't played in theory. the reality is we struggled to beat to awful teams. That doesn't give us any sense of security. Our o scheme needs changing so lanes open up for McFadden. I will say I am encoraged by the play of Wheeler and Burris.

one game at a time of course! tampa is 3-4 as well. they beat panthers,kc, and vikings i believe. and they lost to some decent playing teams. im not too sure but i believe they are giving up big plays defensively. despite dmac's running lanes being closed, there was proof that dmac can run around our (O) line by switching directions or running outside patterns. despite us having trouble in the red zone. there was proof that it can be done "with" better play calling. tampa can score some points alright! but our (D) seems to be on track. i believe we can score on that tampa (D). running and passing! injuries, knapp's scheme and play calling are my worries. but this is another game that can be won.

I agree his play calling is suspect all to often, but the way the defense is playing coincides with the style of offense they are running. Carson when needed can move the ball & put points on the board so they want to play hard nose mistake free football thus changing the whole identity of the raiders. Far from the team that was accustom to being the most penalized team or runner up. It took a while, but I now can see what their vision of this team. They just don't want to beat themselves.

Defense can only do so much to keep the game close AGAINST GOOD TEAMS...like against ATL...Knapp sucks....

Knapp messed on the 3rd &1, but the defensive play calling (running the prevent) on the last drive cost us the game. Atl couldn't move the ball all game & on the last drive Tarver, DA which ever 1 called it switched thee defense. Knapp has his faults, but that wasn't 1 of them.

ATL has 204 points fielded so far this season...Raiders 139...you cant expect them to win games with Krap Knapp plays against teams like that..."hanging in there" doesnt equate to W's....Knapp sucks...

How many points do they have against us &yds for that matter. & as I stated if it wasn't for the pass at the end of the gm on 3&1 his play calling was enuff to win us the game so dont tell new about teams like that cuz we beat pitt & we should've beat atl along wit sd.
Knapp Sucks

What does knapp have to do with defense. Put blame where blame is due& also do the same with credit. DA lost us the sd gm cuz he kept punting when he saw the results the first 2 times. Tarver lost us the atl gm running the prevent. I'm still looking for knapps blame.. As I recall were hada halftime or beon lead in all 3 gms, well specifically the 2 we lost. You can't have it both ways. If I'm right, you were 1 of the main ones crying about Palmers ints thru out his career. Either you tame the lion or deal with the consequences. They chose to tame the lion. Less turnovers, less penalties & Carson is having one of the best seasons of his career. Like I said knapp has his faults, but if you look at it, in all but the den&mia gms we had leads in the 3rd or 4th qtr. All you can ask him to do is give us a chance to win & this far he's done that for the most part.
