After watching the Raiders play the Bears there are all types of issues I can point out, however, it won't be necessary. This post has more to do about the outcome of the game than how we got there. The Raiders are winning games they play poorly in. That is the primary point of focus. Of course, our D Coordinator did it again in the 4th Quarter with his schemes, yet, it doesn't matter...We all know tape will be reviewed and adjustments made.
When the Raiders acquired Carson Palmer it was a turning point for our franchise. Palmer has the tools at QB to lead the Raiders to Super Bowl victories. Right now the Raiders are banged up, hopefully over the next few weeks we will begin to rebuild from within, meaning our starters coming back healthy. The fantastic thing about all this is the Raiders are winning with the players on the field, to win championships that is what you have to do.
Now the Raiders turn it up. I believe you will see a more focused and determined Raider team the rest of the way out. The players know they have won games and didn't execute, expect to see the Raiders execute with far more precision next week. After the loss to TideyBowl and the Broncos the Raiders would have beat any team in the NFL that next Thursday, look to see that level of intensity next Sunday.
No X's & O's for me on this one, back to what gave the Raiders their greatness in the first place..."Just Win Baby"
