Yeah...I've thought about this as well. We have a qb...the first pick in the draft and soon( hopefully) a new stadium. What's not to love. Things are different here now......except the fucking losing.

Carr appears to be the real deal.

Is it possible having him in our team could entice a higher calibre coach to want the Oakland job? Perhaps now that we have better tools at their disposal, better coaches might see us as a good option.

Just a thought.

Such a gut-wrenching loss. Its actually been a while since we lost like that.... I remember it would seem we would ALWAYS lose like that.

Team played much better thank goodness. Carr is the real deal, imagine how good hes going to look next year with Amari Cooper on the squad  Wink or another WR we draft in the first. The line played great and have gotten better and better each week. That was not a hold, but of course we get a shitty call against the pats.. it just has to happen right?

Defense looked better but still need alot of work. Third downs absolutely kill this team. I have faith that the Defense will look completely different with Roach back in. he is the captain of the Defense and I think its going to be night and day when hes back. (at least I hope!)


Mack is a monster and he also is just getting better and better every week. If he continues the same progression throughout the year should be a shoe in for DROY. and If Carr gets better and better and Kelvin Benjamin doesnt continue to destroy, we might also have a strong candidate for the OROY as well. and Gabe Jackson is a beast already... for all the shit you guys give RM about his drafting you cant deny this last draft was absolutely AMAZING.

Hate to say this was good loss especially being 0-3 now. But this team flashed its potential today, I hope the coaches can bring it out more and be consistent with it!

Was the first half PI on 3rd down that extended their drive a penatly regardless of the fact the ball was uncatchable because of the new no touching the WR rule downfield?

Cause if it is just PI, I had no audio at my location, the ball was uncatchable.


They called PI but the ball was way over everyones head, should have been a flag pick up with uncatchable ball. typical call Pats will always get.


Sometimes its hard to look at the big picture. 

Its obvious we have the talent to play with teams like New England.

Its obvious for what ever reason our team showed up today but didn't the first 2 weeks.

This all falls on the coaching staff and GM. 

Lets see how this plays out.

 The Raiders left for London on Sunday evening with two fewer players than they had in the morning. Starting receiver Rod Streater and starting strong safety Tyvon Branch each broke a foot in the loss to the Patriots.

Head coach Dennis Allen didn’t have any time lines for their returns, but said both players were missed.

“(Branch’s injury) cost us, took us out of some things that we wanted to be able to do later in the game,” Allen said.

Branch missed all of last season with an ankle injury.

Streater, who came back quickly last week from a hip injury, was off to a great start with three catches before getting hurt early in the second quarter. He came back and watched the second half on crutches.

Andre Holmes came in and went high for a 29-yard catch on a field-goal drive in the third quarter, and then drew the pass interference call that got the Raiders to the 6 in the final minutes.

“Rod is one of our leaders and it’s really hard to lose him,” Holmes said. “Other people, including myself, have to step up.”

No hold: Allen saw the late holding call on Gabe Jackson on the replay board and “in my opinion it was not a hold.”

The rookie agreed.

“I thought it was a clean block, but the call is what it was so I don’t have too much to say about that.”

Schaub leaves: Backup quarterback Matt Schaub left the team Saturday to be with his wife, and Matt McGloin handled No. 2 duties behind Derek Carr.

Schaub’s wife, Laurie, had an emergency C-section to deliver the couple’s fourth child. Mom and baby are doing well.

Meanwhile, the Raiders decided to err on the side of caution with running back Maurice Jones-Drew and held him out. Jones-Drew had made progress with his hand injury and wanted to play.

Also inactive for Oakland were starting linebackers Sio Moore (ankle) and Nick Roach (head), and cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (knee).

Briefly: Allen is the second coach to lose nine straight games for the Raiders since Al Davis took over in 1963. Art Shell was the other in 2006. … Carr has been sacked twice in his first 108 passing attempts. … Woodside High alum Julian Edelman had 10 catches for 84 yards for the Patriots, extending his streak to nine regular-season games with at least six receptions.

If we ever get a great coaching staff, this kid can be awesome!


On the loss: “It’s hard. It’s really hard because of how much we fought as a team. We go all the way down and tie it up, certain things happen. We get another shot at it, certain things happen, so football happened, that’s for sure. It’s just hard because we fought so hard, but adversity is not easy. You just keep grinding away and you really, again, you find out what kind of person you are when you’re going through times like this.”

On keeping calm in a hostile environment: “This is obviously not an easy place to play, especially against however many Super Bowls they’ve won. They’re a great team. They have a Hall of Fame quarterback and they have some Hall of Fame players on the defensive side of the ball, so we knew it was going to be a challenge, especially in this environment. But, for the most part, as they’ve done all season, I thought my O-line did a great job, tight ends and backs included in protection, I think they did a great job. It’s hard, again, I can’t say without seeing the film what calls we could have done better for myself, but I felt, again, they did a great job. We put ourselves in a position to win in a tough place against a Super Bowl-type team and that’s how we view ourselves. Now we have to keep going. We just have to keep going.”


On his emotion after the end-of-game interception: “It’s just the heat of the game. It was just frustration just because we fought so hard. I just felt bad for my team. I just felt bad for my team. I can promise you it wasn’t anything profanity or anything like that; I don’t remember the last time I said a cuss word, so it wasn’t that. I can promise you that. I was just frustrated. I was just frustrated because I wanted to win. I wanted to come back in that locker room and see my teammates’ smiles on their faces and sitting back and enjoy watching that. But now we have to wait another to see if we can do that.”

On if Denarius Moore should have caught the pass: “It’s hard, again, it was tight coverage. I didn’t see exactly what happened. I think it was my lineman or someone in the way, but obviously, I’m going to be hard on myself and say, ‘I should have made a better throw,’ because I didn’t see it happen. I didn’t see the play, so I don’t know. All you can do is handle what you can control and maybe there’s something I could have done better to help us win.”

On the plays they should have had: “Just from an execution standpoint, yes, the 3rd-and-5, I forget where it went, but I’m always going to think I can put the ball in his face. I’ll get better in that sense. Again, I didn’t see the play, the last play, but of course it eats at me because we lost and if we won, it’d still eat at me because I’m just trying to get better. I’m just trying to be a better player so the Raiders can win.”


On the effort: “Absolutely, there’s no doubt in my mind, myself included. I learned a lot about myself in the past two games and the way I went into them. I knew that this was going to be as hostile an environment as you can go into, so I took it upon myself as a personal challenge to be more energetic, to be…not more vocal, but just more energetic, just try to get the guys ready to go. I definitely felt that from everybody though. I’m just talking about myself because that’s all I can speak for, but I felt it from everybody though. Everybody was that way and I guarantee we put a scare into them late, that’s for sure. No one expected that, but we did. That’s what we expect out of ourselves; now we just have to finish it. It doesn’t matter if there was a holding call, it doesn’t matter what happens, it doesn’t matter, we lost. WE have to go back to work this week in London and fix what we need to fix. But if we come out with that same effort, we’re going to be a good football team.”

On the McFadden touchdown that was called back: “I didn’t see the flag. As soon as I saw him crease it, I saw our line block him up, and I saw him go in…actually, a yard before he went in, I turned around, jumped up, celebrating. I was excited. We went down on the field, did what we needed to do, so I didn’t see the flag thrown. I didn’t necessarily see what happened.”







Hopefully we one after next week.
