PLAYING RAIDERS IS LIKE A SCRIMMAGE!


Antonio Pierce has come out and said that playing the Raiders felt like a srimmage:

"I do not like knocking teams," Pierce said.  "But right now, they're struggling.  We're playing that game the other day and, honestly, it felt like a scrimmage, like a practice.  It felt like we were going against our offense [in a controlled setting] as far as the tempo.

"There was no vibe of trying or effort from the Raiders at all from a defensive standpoint against their offense.  We're getting three-and-outs.  You don't hear nobody [saying], 'Hey, let's go!' trying to pick the guys up, rallying them, getting guys fired up.  There was nothing.  It was quiet.  A guy gets sacked or somebody gets beat, they just get up.  It's not like there's yelling or no kind of [emotion] about the way they were playing.

"It was shocking to be out there in that game and get that kind of feeling."

What the F is going on with this team, seems so far from week one when the showed so much promise., how bad is it when the shining light is a loss?  I've been a big defender for the most part but how can anyone support this? hopefully this will be a spark.........hopefully

Ill never stop supporting the Raiders but this cuts, I think bringing back Gruden is the only option and giving him as much control as he wants, he clearly still has a affinity for the Raiders and would bring the discipline and passion back.
