The Truth about the Raiders defense


Lets reveal the truth about the Raiders. I am a life long raider fan and after awhile the truth comes to light and hurts. Here are a few things that drive me crazy about our defense (I will address the offense in another comment). The biggest, there is no heart and determination, especially on defense. How long are these guys going to allow teams to push them around, step on them, spit in in their face before they decide take some action. They don't seemed pumped up for the games. Our defense is very slow. Especially the d-line. Seymour is done. He looked like he was in slow motion the last few weeks. Tommy Kelly, gives 100% about 40% of the time, that's why he jumps offside's all the time, his mind is not fully into the game. I like Wimbley, however, we have him out of position. Let him just rush the passer, he can't cover anyone in pass def., same goes for curry, he was a beast in college rushing the passer and and roaming around. He did the same at seattle for a short time until they tried to make him something he is not. he can't cover in pass def either. switch to a 3-4, have curry and Wimbley on the ends to cause problems. McClain, someone needs to fire him up or slap him in the face to wake him up, for some reason he looks slow and for as big as his is, he shouldn't be pushed around like a little kid, go hit someone 55. Bryant on the d-line is too small, he gets pushed all around, sometimes makes a play, but we aren't looking for sometimes. Lamar Houston i thought would turn out nice, but is overrated and gets pushed all around, plus he is too slow and commits too many mental mistakes, why did he commit that clip on that so called fumble the other day, are u kidding. We need a d-line that is hungry, have speed and heart and want to get after someone. Look at the other good defenses in the league, their d-line's don't get pushed around, and most have speed to rush the passer and plug the holes. Stanford Rout, overrated, when is he going to turn and look for the ball when covering a receiver. I learned that in pony league football. Michael Huff, i liked him out of college, again too slow and inconsistent with covering people. I dislike the 49ers, but i tell you what, their linebackers fly all over the place and hit people. Can we say that about our linebackers? NO. The only person that fly's around our def. is branch. For a safety he makes way too many tackles. That means are linebackers are getting their butts kick at the line of scrim. Lastly about our def. is there is no accountability. It's ok to make a mistake at times, but game after game, the same people committing the same stupid mistakes. this has to change. Either get rid of them and/or change the de-coord. At the end of the day, we do not have the talent on defense right now to become a solid defense.
