Yes, I watched the 1st preseason game which was difficult to stomach, not because the Raiders lost, but how that players that the Raiders really depend on didn't come through when they were relied upon. The big reason I was livid when Hue Jackson foolishly traded for Palmer was not only our high end draft picks but that Palmer hasn't been good in about 3 yrs and the same team he won 4 game with, rookie Andy Dalton came in and the same team made the playoffs. Carson's decision making is beyond pathetic hence is high ypg and int's as well. He made a great pass to another waste of roster space in Darrius Heyward Bey yet it hit him in the worst place possible: His HANDS!!
Ahh, DHB, AKA Drops Hella Ballz, is a fan favorite and a fav around here as well. Here's a guy that several of you root for simply because you feel sorry for him more than anything. I'm sure those two horrid yrs in DHB's life that caused him to change his jersey # are still giving the Nation nightmares. It was so pathetic that then coach Mr. Bubbles had to cater to him just for him to catch a pass, soft tosses of 3 to 9 yds and he can manage to keep those in the hands of stone. Unfortunately, the pass that ricchoceted off his hands last night was more than 10 yds and deep down inside I know you guys knew he would butcher that pass as well, I did anyway. In two games Bey has the same amount of catches all for a grand total of 21 yds and no td's. I know you guys want the best for Bey but the guy just can't catch the ball well enough to be a wr on this team, to keep running him out there is going to stagnate this offense and there will be more drops, yes there will.
DVD, was the guys fooled at his " great" training camp. He had everyone fooled, except the $$. I knew it was smoke being blowed up the Pride's ass and I tried to tell them to let's see him try to defend anyone else than DHB before we are ready to say he has turned the corner. Sadly, I was right once again for we now know that not only DVD was whack but if DHB is the only wr he can defend then he sucks to for every other wr, even third stringers and practice squad fodder is burning DVD that would make Joan of Arc envious. Right now even Lito Sheppard would be an upgrade to him and Lito stinks like a landfill.
Bottom Line: It is time to bench Carson, he can't run the offense, Matt Leinart has ran this very offense for yrs and it baffles me as to why he wasn't even considered to compete with Carson for the starting position rather than anointing it to Carson, didn't the Raiders learn their lesson with giving the job to ....... Jamar.... R? The way UDFA Rod Streate has come along he can fill in for Moore but Criner should take over for Bey and Carswell or McGee can play the slot. Bey really needs to be traded and I know you guys bashed me when I stated we should have traded Bey rather than Murphy. Look at Murphy's stats from last night and tell me who is ballin and who is bustin. As for DVD it's time to burn on that disc the word: Free Agent.
