Raiders Own Up To Blame....Except One



The Raiders did a good job playing the blame game on Sunday after the crushing by the Jets. However, they blamed themselves, except for one. But we'll get to him in a bit.

Defensive end Richard Seymour said they didn't do a good job conveying the message they were trying to send during practice:

"Obviously we didn't do enough of a job during the week conveying the message of what we need to do to win. As one of the leaders on the team, I definitely take the responsibility."

Rookie receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey shouldered some blame after dropping a ball in the end zone:


"I've got to make that play."

 

Right tackle Khalif Barnes fell on his sword. He started at right tackle for the first time since college more than six years ago. About allowing a sack-fumble:

"The first play of the game is going to haunt me. I'm just going to have nightmares over that one. That's unacceptable."

Even Gradkowski said, "My bad." He lost a fumble at the Jets' 29 when sacked from behind in the third quarter:

"That's going to kill me tonight. If I take care of the football there, we score and that changes a little momentum."

 

And then we have JaMarcus Russell:

"I don't think it's me personally, I really don't. It's a bad combination of one guy doesn't do something right one time. Personally, I don't think so.

Do you?"


When asked if he was happy with all his reads and decisions:
"Yes"
As for Cable benching him:

"He's the head guy. He probably feels like he shouldn't give a reason."
