...how have we managed to be ranked 5th or 13th in offense out of all 32 teams? We can't even run the ball. Since we can't run the ball is it fair to give Palmer the blame? I don't think so, I'm actually surprised he hasn't thrown more interceptions. I remember one game he threw it sixty times. Here are the Raiders offensive statistics so far:
Oakland Total Yardage Total 4665 Rush 1055 Pass 3610
Oakland Avg. yards per game Yards 358.8 Rush 81.2 Pass 277.7
I am baffled at how this offense is ranked 5th or 13th in the NFL. And since we can't run the ball, we have to give Palmer all the credit for any success the offense has had.
I'm saying 5th or 13th because my local paper The Vacaville Reporter says 5th in offense, but NFL.com says 13th. Either way, I'm surprised we aren't last.
