About theoaklandraiders

Oakland Raiders fan since mid 2009, when I noticed the Raiders on TV during a visit to my wife's family in Ohio. By the end of the game versus the Bengals I had become a fanatical fan and haven't missed a game since...

The Curse of Todd Moronovich Has Finally Been Lifted

Raider Head Coach Jack Del Rio actually game planned against Carr twice last year. If he thought the QB was the Raiders weakest link, guess what, he would be the first one clamoring to get rid of Carr, not the first one saying how special, unique or high his ceiling is.

Derek Carr #4 went from a spread offense to playing under pressure (which pundits said he would never be able to do) and succeeded despite continuous pressure (his other major knock). He spread the ball around and demonstrated an ability to go through progressions (Kaepernick still can’t do) and also flashed elite arm talent.

Most importantly, he made good decisions, grew as the season went on and flourished in adversity rather than quaking.”

The NFL’s Worst Yards Per Throw Attempted

2014 Raiders were on pace for the worst running game since the 1930’s through the first 10 games. To make it worse, we didn’t even have the benefit of the newfangled “forward pass”. Derek Carr #4 had one of the shortest average completion numbers in the history of the NFL, constantly checking down into 3 and outs at a nearly historic pace. He had the leagues worst Yards Per Attempt with 5.46.
