Where to go from here?




What in the hell did I just watch?  I'm really angry, like I suspect the nation is.  So my real question is; where do we go from here?  Carson looked good, but he's just not quite ready yet.  He made some brilliant throws, especially that TD pass to Reece.  However, this games blunders have to fall on Hue and the D.  I'm not clear on what they were trying to do defensively out there.  Correct me if I'm wrong but Teblow has a 46% completion rate going in right?  Why did we not focus on containing him and making him beat us with the throw?  Hue has done a lot of personal moves the last 3 weeks or so, is he not focused on the games?  And where was DHB?  Hurt?  I saw him once, is he in the dog house?  He's the most productive WR on the team and he had 0 catches.  WTF?  I understand getting Moore ready, but he is still a really green rookie sometimes and it shows.  And TJ, he was very rusty, looked like a guy who hadn't played football in a while.  I'm ok with that, because it was true.  I'm not ok with sticking with him when DHB, if he was healthy, was out there.  I put that on Hue.  And Boss, is he just a lineman or do we want him to actually catch too as well?  On the plus, Ford is back and ready to go.  That dude can plain catch.  Bush, not bad, but I guess he really is just a solid back up and not a star.  He did ok though, but damn do I miss RunDMC.  On the defense, the less I say the better right now.  They were pathetic.  Blown coverages, STUPID penalties, and terrible, terrible, absolutely terrible gap control.  Over 200 yards rushing against us, over 120 yards given up on penalties, and countless 3 and outs equals a TERRIBLE loss.  On the plus, the Chargers and Chiefs lost.  As of now, no one team in the AFC west looks special.  This abomination of a game was brutal.  So I'll end on a positive note as best as I can will.  Ford was the shiz, Moore looked pretty good at times, Bush is a solid back up running back, Reece is a great full back, Carson Palmer is very close to being comfortable with the team, Curry played well except for a few lapses in good judgement, Lechler and Jano are the best in the league, the division is still very attainable, and the best part is that the game is mercifully over.  Time to move on Raider Nation.  Losing is not new to any of us here, we have a decent team, let us all preach a bit more patience, at least the next 3 games before we call this season a dud.  I keep the faith, you all will do that as well.  This game sucked on numerous levels.  Now lets get ready for the Dolts.  Go Raiders!!!
