Not a bad game for a loss, but still disappointing. It seems like we're making progress, but need the consistancy and most importantly WINZ!!!!!!!!!!

Horrible game, worst of the season. Why? Because we beat our selves. We had multiple dumb penalties. Thats why we lost. Sure falcons caused us to make some of those penalties. But realistically we self destructed. We beat them most of the game. Sure we played decent, but what good is it if you end up defeating yourself. I am conflicted as they did some fighting...but beating yourself is the worst way to lose. I would rather get beat handily then beat ourselves. Just a lousy game.

Not this season it wasnn't. Granted a good portion was with replacement refs. But we were making headway in that dept.

i don't know, i liked the way we played. against the undefeted atlanta? this team is playing great. we are a team at the bottom of the nfl. and to lose by three? ok, yeah, we shot ourselves on the foot but i have to say and agree with HC here. we played good enough compared to what we have been doing all season. you talked about improvenent and it being early in the season, well, there it was, improvement and early in the season. we lost, and i expected to lose this game but i expected improvement. i gotta say, the (D) improved, the (O) still neeeds work but i liked the fight and inspiration the players had on that game. keep bringing it RAIDERS!
RAIDERS 2012!!!
