QB - Carson Palmer is off on his passes and has locked into one receiver, rookie Rod Streater.
RB - Darren McFadden is the engine that runs the offense. No DMC, No Go. Need More Reece.
OL - Without center Wiseniewski, offensive line is struggling to pick up blitzes and open running lanes. New blocking scheme suspect.
WR - Heyward-Bey ineffective, Jacoby Ford injured, Streater looks to be the veteran.
Coaching - Suspect (red zone play calling questionable)
Turnovers - 2 fumbles lost, 1 interception
Penalties - 2/17yds (they appear disciplined)
Defense - looked good for the most part. Sacks, a safety and short yardage stoppages. One blown coverage in the red zone allowed a touchdown.
Special Teams - giving up too many return yards, not getting enough yards on returns. Punt Blocked. Janokowski 3/3 on field goals.
I know it's still preseason, only the second of four games. But Come'on Raiders, if you wanna begin to believe things have changed for the better, you have to start showing it on the field.
Its gotta get better. I know it will.
Maybe they're holding back.
win, lose or tie!
