I woke Sunday to a flood of articles and T.V. reports that with Mc Fadden out this game will be a QB match up . In the first place don't expect Oakland to change their identity due to one injury , Bush has seen this team through many times when Mc Fadden has been dinged up , and is more than capable of producing a 100 yard rushing attack all on his own . Going all the way back to Louisville Bush has uncorked some monster games when being the featured back , and has uncorked a few big games with Oakland as well . He is more than capable of taking this game over , and lets not forget Oakland has been waiting for the chance to see what Taiwan Jones will bring to this attack .
In the second place in order to have a QB match up you have to have two QB's , and near as i can tell theres only one QB in this game and his name is Carson Palmer , Tebow has a long way to go before calling himself a NFL QB . Palmer has played pro bowls , and proved he belongs in the NFL , Tebow has yet to prove he can complete three passes in a row on the professional level .
Expect the Raiders to continue with business as usuall , grinding the ball down the field with a solid running attack , allowing Palmer to pick and chose when to take a shot down field. Oakland will leave this game with a share of the AFC west lead , and their biggest worry should be a short week leading up to a Thursday night match up with San Diego for first place .
