Like I said in another thread we need to control the big plays. Cooper had catches of 34 and 35 yards and one run by Richards was 75 yards. Sprinkle in a few more and we did pretty good on defense. Never had to worry about the offense just the line and they came through with flying colors

Come on JP. It's not a cave, it's an underground dwelling! The Raiders aren't that good. Del Rio got lucky and the Saints let down the last 18 minutes allowing 25 points by Oakland. On 3 plays alone the Raiders got 145 yards and without those defense did good for almost 3 full quarters.

Del Rio is NOT a good coach. 76-80 since 2003 and 7-9 last year. What pieces did they add since then? Nada

Del Rio just got lucky with nothing to lose. 2 2 point conversions? Never happen again!

The Raiders secondary will keep them out of the playoff contention.

Cooks beat up on Sean Smith so bad, they eventually benched him.

I can see Cooks beating up on alot of DB's this season. He's speedy gonzales in human form.

No doubt but Sean was getting beat off the line. This guy is all of 6'3 & is no scrub but yeah Cooks is a human missile.

Re: Game Day - Opening Day: Oakland Raiders vs New Orleans Saints

One of my worries is the lack of the teams ability to close games out. That Lutz FG should have been a TD and th game would have been dead.

Whe i have watched the Pats or Seattle especially in the past few years if they had the lead or where level and had possesion with 5 mins on the clock you new a long 4 min plus drive was on the cards and they'd see out the game. The Saints dont play the clock well these days imo

Yeah you could see Cooks gaining inches on every step he took. Just amazing.

I just want to say; even though we lost; both sides of the ball played better than I thought they would...

Even with the loss of Breaux; I'm excited to see the rookies play...

Exactly, why don't they just trade him if they don't want to use him? As I said we have not really ran it consistently with one back late since PT left.
