The entire Raider team melted down in Miami as the Dolphins demolished Oakland in every phase of the game.
The stopped our run, and blitzed the QB to make him throw poor passes. WRs dropped left and right. Marcel Reece was covered the entire game and could do nothing. A pick six was just icing on the cake.
On defense our front 7 got nowhere and they ran all over us. Our backfield allowed plenty of passes, and let Dolphins walk right into the endzone. To top it off their QB ran for first downs and a touch down.
Special teams gave up big kick returns, and we never even got Seabass in range for a kick.
The Dolphins outplayed the Raiders and could very well have booted us out of the Playoffs. With four games left, this loss was a brutal and devastating showcase of every weakness that Oakland has had this year.
For me the standout issue was the Rolando McClain our defensive signal caller, got himself arrested on gun charges mid-week. It sucked the momentum and motivation out of this wobbling team. When he came on the field, our team lost their cohesion and ability to work together. Rolando showed all of us that he was an imposter and betrayed the team. Playing alongside him RUINED the team’s ability to stick together and that falls on both Rolando and Coach Jackson.
Thanks a MILLION you IDIOT!!!!! The best Raider season in 10 years just self-destructed because you had to play the tough guy! McClain #55 is a disgrace to the Raiders. If we had anyone else to take his place, I’d say do it.
Secondly the injuries have finally caught up to us. With 16 guys on the injured list, we just can’t keep this up. Without ANY of our best playmakers, Raider offense can no longer get the job done. Meanwhile Rolando put a GUN to the head of our defense and they broke under the pressure.
I saw the Dolphins DESTROY the Raiders at the Coliseum in 1998, and 2010. I can’t wait for the day we pay them back, in spades!!!!!!!
