    Dwayne Harris full practice today.

    Trevor Davis has been better than I expected him to be returning punts / kicks while Harris was out.

    What do you see them doing now that both are healthy? Who’s the guy?

    Harris and use Davis on WR sets would be my guess.

    Jon Gruden is 60 years old but looks like his testicles still haven’t dropped.

    Who else enjoyed seeing linebackers line up against DeAndre fucking Hopkins?

    Guenther can take his fat ass to the unemployment line as far as I’m concerned.

    Texans kept running that same bootleg and the raiders had no clue what to do.

    That last throw to Williams.... how in the flying fuck is that not PI.

    Every single week they lose back breaking calls/non calls.

    What sucks too is Williams dropped that pass that was right in his hands. The defense is so bad that 1 single mistake can lose the game, they badly need some talent on defense.

    They literally have
    -the qb ( i don't give a fuck what anyone says)
    -the rb
    -the recievers (maybe trade for one more)
    -the o line
    -the kicker
    -the punter

    GIVE ME SOME CORNERS WHO AREN'T TOTAL TRASH

    Mullen looked half decent yesterday, so that's encouraging. Lamarcus Joyner is a failed experiment, and Ferrell is swallowed alive on almost every play. At this point I just pretend Crosby was the 4th pick of the draft (and keep drinking).

    Pass rush is everything. Gruden/Mayock need to trade for Ngakoue. Once the D-line can consistently rush the QB, I think things can improve in other areas of the defense.

    There was multiple plays where Ferrell instantly lost his footing, also he would run at Watson flailing his arms around like Watson would get scared and throw the shit away or something.

    The team also really needs a leader at LB to captain the D. Burfict seemed to fit that role well but he can't stay out of trouble. Morrow and Whitehead are just not those guys.

    Lamarcus Joyner is a failed DC playing him in a shit scheme.

    Ferrell playing DT all the time is extremely frustrating as well.

    They keep trying to use Joyner like a swiss army knife type player but instead they are cancelling him out.

    Also the rumors outside of Anderson from Jets is Gruden wants to find a linebacker before the deadline.

    IMO it’s coaching and not a lack of talent.

    You can have all pro CBs back there and theyll look bad with no pass rush.
    look at the difference between the 9ers secondary last season and now with ford,bosa and thomas moving to 3 tech

    Already told you, the RAIDERS are behind the 8 ball since Al sued the league. We’ll always be treated this way.
