Check it out Raider fans! Here is something I found interesting before going into last week's game. There is an offensive category that our beloved OAKLAND RAIDERS lead all others in. And, that category is YAC. YAC is the acronym for "Yards After Catch". Okay, I know most of you already know this, BUT....
It is widely known that when it comes to today’s NFL, stats are for losers. I hate to go against the grain, (no I don't) but I am an "in through the OUT DOOR" type of person. If there is a grain, I will find a way to go against it.
Anyway, this is a stat that I find particularly interesting because it is a direct testament to the many sets of young, talented hands we have on this roster. Do you find this hard to believe? I did at first myself. It took a little more searching than usual to find this stat, but I believe this site to be correct. Check it out. At #1 we have the New England Patriots with 2181 YAC. We are still up there at 2 with 2141 YAC. At #3 we have the Detroit Lions with 2124 YAC.
SO, why do I bring this up, and what does it mean. To me, it means that we have the talent at the WR, TE and RB/FB positions. Regardless of what I think personally about Greg Knapp as our OC, (truth is..I despise him!) because these BALLERS know exactly what to do after they catch the ball.
PLEASE,is anybody out there? Can you hear my plea! Can we please get somebody in here with half a brain to coach these highly talented individuals so that we may escape this abyss of a wasteland know as Knapp Island? REGGIE, are you out there? Please, do not let this go on for another year. I beg of you. Fire Greg Knapp so that this offense can RISE like a Phoenix from the ashes!
