    I know that our identity runs through Carr, but we need TDs in the red zone. We have one of the best offensive lines, we have a GREAT short yardage runner, I felt like JDR/OC were trying to mirror Seattle in Marshawn's last game with them.

    That series of calls should have been the other thing that JDR didn't like about the game.
    I think we will need to get used to the fact that Lynch's carries will be limited all year. People that want him to get 25-30 touches are going to be disappointed. It would have been nice to see him get at least one carry in that sequence after the 4th down conversion.

    There may be a few instances when we let him go over how much we intend to use him. Once the playoffs start I think the snap count goes out the window. We want him to be healthy and fresh if the Raiders get that far.

    Good thing is the Raiders have some backs to spell Lynch to take a nice break during the game. Lynch will be the closer. It was awesome to watch him bulldoze defenders in short yardage situations. Raiders achilles heal last year were converting those 3rd and short yardage plays late in games to close teams out. Lynch is such a beast in those situations.

    At this point, I am not to worried about him pulling a Trestman every game and just throwing it like crazy... We will see though. That was his lone bad spot.
    you weren't the only one the game thread was burning

    Post game interview with EV was interesting kid literally shared every detail. He's clearly avsmart footballer was reading their OL feet like a book but boy did their coaches get an insight into how to handle him next time.

    Overall a pretty good showing last week. It is always a great feeling to start the season off with a victory and to enter the next week relatively healthy. Our young kicker performed in his first NFL game and I really like Vanderdoes, he can be the piece we were missing in that position and raise the level of play of that unit. Mack starting slow on the sack count again, but he is crazy good so I am not worried. I am really looking forward to this team destroying what I presume to be a hapless Jets team this week.

    Raider Nation boys! Raider Nation.

    He's had the potential all along. I think he played to heavy. Rumor has it he is in better shape this year. He might just be "getting it" this season and having Vanderdoes playing well and MEJ back doesn't hurt either.
