So far, unimpressed

After watching the replay carefully, it remains to be seen if there is any improvement over lay season.

The overwhelming concern is that there is not enough talent or experience at linebacker.

Lots of mistakes and missed assignments that a real offense would exploit.

Lastly, the offensive line depth is going to be increasingly problematic.


The Raiders are barely a second tier SEC squad.

Seriously?!

11 sacks in 2 games, preseason or not; is a huge improvement

Re: So far, unimpressed

We have allowed 55 rush yards per game - good for 3rd in the ranking

It might be too early to tell how good we could be, but no improvement? Not at all, there is a big improvement

3rd in rushing, 6th in passing, and second to the 49ers in total defense... Not bad for the worst defense in history, eh?

Re: So far, unimpressed

You are right. This team has no talent on either side of the ball. This is all a mirage.

We'll rue the day we fired Spags and lost Bushrod, Shanle, Dunbar, Meachem, Henderson, Ellis, McBride, and Chase Daniel.

We are a clueless bunch of no talent morons. We'll be lucky to win 6 games.

Re: So far, unimpressed

Xan was seriously unimpressed with the Superbowl victory against the Colts.
We really played poorly in that game. Lack of explosive offense, the onsides kick was out of desperation, painkillers and marijuana were not allowed in the stadium. Tisk tisk!
