I actually agree with Monte Pool about the Raiders offense...but I think he is not giving enough credit to the coaches for making the best with what they have. Campbell didn't need to pass big...but we have had some games of decent passing when needed. But if the run is working....why change it?

In Monte's defense, I don't think anyone saw yesterday's dominant Raiders' performance coming. You can still win a lot of games in this league by running the ball and stopping the run. Campbell looked much calmer/sharper now that he knows that he's the man. With the emergence of Ford, and having Schilens finally healthy, perhaps the emergence of a bonafide passing attack isn't far behind.

I hope you are right. Ford is a Diaper Dandy for sure. Although I would rather see Murphy excel than Schines...Only because Schilens will be hurt again soon...he is an injury waiting to happen.

Just run the ball baby. We have the O-line working, the D being awesome and we have the momentum. Add the aces in the hole for the passing game; Ford, Shcilens and DHB as Campbells deep threats and Miller, well he is what he is short long whatever he is a F&cking great target. So I am still workin and believing in the 9-7 season and the playoffs.

We need both...look what happen when our Running game failed...2 losses because we need the passing game to open up the running game and vice versa.
