Pretty good breakdown from the Raider's perspective, but provides a little insight.
Seeing our defense get picked apart by a bottom third team shows how deep the problems are with our defense.
Poor schemes ,poor coaching or a lack of understanding on the players part. Maybe we should look for less athletic but a higher football IQ in our draft picks.
Meh, first play he shows the guy isn't even covered by a corner it's a LB (Fort). In his defense, he's in a decent position, he just doesn't get his head around to make a play on the ball. The flag was bogus.
“Breakdown” is a good word to describe what happened to our defense in the 4th quarter of that game. It broke down alright...
We didn't do diddley poo
pretty pathetic defense if you ask me, with poor pass rush, Dupree doing his loop, loop and safetys slow reaction
one thing I notice with our defense is that when teams need to score they will. Teams playing turtle mode and safe we do well against.
Only time we look dominant is when we force the opposition to just pass but even then they can score.
New England couldn't score against the Steelers last season .
Yea the football gods gave us that win while they got a ring lol.
We need to be more dominant on third & long. Stops our pass defense from getting off the field.
That’s like me saying I need more ribeyes.
Basically he's saying that our safeties are worthless ...absolutely worthless
I am not to sure the Pats played opossum against us the last 2 years so they could light us up in playoffs.......... I would not put it past them.......
The uber athletes seem to be the target in the most recent drafts, at least early on. The NFL is very complicated, I hope they move football IQ higher up on the checklist this year. Because from the outside looking in, it doesn't seem that way.
Look at Byron Murphy this year for example, not an uber athlete but very good instincts/IQ. It will be interesting to see if they pass him up if he is still available.
This is all about being prepared, and you people wonder why I do not care for Mike Tomlin.
I have had enough of his shenanigans for years.
