I watched the stat tracker for a little while...What was really scary was a lot of fumbles on returns

Hate to say this, but Seattle could have a better team, than Oakland....and the Raiders have to face Peyton twice a year.....

I watched the entire game and have to say what a dissapointment. They played awful! It really stinks too that we have players like Moore and Ford out injured once again can't these guys stay healthy, what's the deal. I'm still not impressed with Palmer after watching preseason. I had really high hopes for the Raiders this year. Even if Moore and Ford are healthy enough for opening night against San Diego they haven't had been able to practice with Palmer to get their timing down, we can't rely on McFADDEN to carry the ball the entire game. So in other words the Raiders are pretty much screwed. I hope they prove me wrong but regardless I'll be ay the game on the 10th cheering them on.

So true. I know they've had a lot of changes this year and have the most difficult traveling schedule out of all the teams. I don't expect them to have a perfect season, but a winning season would be nice. Let's Go Raiders!

Once again, the Raiders appear to have another losing season ahead of them. Unlike the 9ers, there is no excitement in watching this team. My heart goes out to all you Raider faithful.

I wouldn't put a lot of stock into this game. Seattle is still one of those towns that go a little extra to beat the Raiders, even in preseason (Seattle is home to one of the best Raider's booster clubs). Having said that, Palmer will be a concern. To all those that stated his INT's were due to the lack of Camp etc., I don't think so. Palmer can run the offense, it is just a "dink and dunk" vs. the quick strike offense and at some point he will make an iladvised throw. Not so much concerned about Moore or Ford, I don't think they fit the scheme as well as last year's scheme (too small). They have speed to go long, not hold-up to a season's worth of crossing patterns. I am curious to see the defense. They are solid and have depth at certain positions. It will be interesting to see if the predictability of an Al Davis defense is true or just another false criticism of the man.

well i give a hell of a lot of credit to the seahawks for their performance! and i mean the whole team! we played a lot of our rookies for the most part but even our starters looked awful. preseason or not, "play to win"! well i guess that means there will be a lot of people cut and dennis allen's team did not impress much this preseason.
