Hopefully they come into this game with a little more fire then last week...Second week in a row against a top NFL RB, but up against a Rookie QB and a below average Defense, i think we have a legit shot in this one. We need to get after Bradford early, stack the box, shut down Jackson and force Bradford to beat us...If the O line gives JC Time expect him, the WRs (especially Miller) to move the ball down the field and expect McFadden to have a very good day as well. Screens are going to be big in this game. This game is going to show us what this team is really made of. Now that weve come back down to earth, If we get wacked again well, there is something wrong, but im expecting big things, so lets go Raiders!!

My Prediction:
Raiders 20
Rams 13


1-1 and tied for first in the division after SD wins and KC and Denver lose!!


Discuss

Projected offensive Line:

LT: Mario Henderson
LG: Daniel Loper
OC: Jared Veldheer
RG: Cooper Carlisle
RT: Langston Walker


what I hope....

LT: MArio Henderson
LG: Robert Gallery/Khalif Barnes (if Gallo is injured)
OC: Jared Veldheer
RG: Daniel Loper
RT: Langston Walker


also this week...

Quote:
Raiders coach Tom Cable said return specialist Yamon Figurs was released to make room for Erik Pears, and that Johnnie Lee Higgins and Jacoby Ford would assume kickoff and punt return duties.

Cable said he wasn’t sure which would return punts and which would return kickoffs.

The most significant injury appears to be to left guard Robert Gallery, with Cable saying more would be known in 48 to 72 hours. Sounds as if they hope to have him practicing Friday so he could play Sunday.

KC is going to be 2-0 after Sunday is done homie. I just want our players to come out and WANT to win. I want them to have HUNGER and PAIN for victory. If those things are checked, then we will win.

KC didn't show enough on offense to warrant a win against the Browns special team can only take you so far.


But i expect McFadden to have a huge day and Henderson and Seymour to handle the middle cause with S.Jackson we don't really have to worry about the edges as much.

The rain definitely helped in their MNF game. Though Bowe and Chambers are good weapons I have a hard time believing Cassel will connect with them much. Their O Line is bad as well.

KC will lose this week to the Browns imo.

KC's offense, minus one big play, was horrid.

The Browns STs has always been a strength of theirs. They will stifle the Chiefs in the return game.

Delhome or Wallace at QB will be enough to generate offense against a team who was torched in the air last week.

Short week for KC, on the road and that team is average at best. That win told me less about the Chiefs and more about the Chargers.

If we are down Nnamdi, CJ and McFadden at CB we look WEAK there.
Ware and Routt as starters Shocked Even against a rookie that is scary.

I'm not convinced Nnamdi will be out for the game. I have a feeling he's fine and just being more on the cautious side to not re-aggravate it.

After that terrible showing week one, most peoples adopted Raiders did a whole lot of nothing. Hopefully after this week that will change.

Mr. Wauffle should have some tips for our OL on how to keep Robbins out of the game. He had one of there two sacks last week.

In other news I found this in an article on yard barker.LOL, way to twist the story. There is no way both dont play and I doubt either will sit out.

"For a quick injury update on the Raiders, it looks like All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and former Pro Bowler Richard Seymour both sat out practice today with injuries. Asomugha is dealing with a groin injury, and Seymour is down with a hamstring. Obviously these could both be big for Sunday’s game, so stay tuned later in the week for an updated injury report."
