The Raiders are in it to win it!

Raiders versus Patriots



The tail of LIHI's tape:

QB advantage: Campbell > Brady
Why: Campbell doesn't have to carry the team

RB advantage: McFadden > the entire RB cast of the Pats
Why: No explanation needed

WR(s) advantage: Pats > Raiders
Why: simple answer, Welker

Offensive line advantage: Raiders > Pats
Why: McFadden

Defensive line advantage: Raiders > Pats
Why: Pressure & revenge factor

Pass coverage: Raiders > Pats
Why: Over confident Belichick

Special teams: Raiders > Pats
Why: Seabass

Final predicted score: Patriots 31 - Raiders 34

Pinch me she said, good luck to the Silver & Black Nation!

keys to the game is to manage the game as we did versus the Jets. run run run the ball some more. knock brady around with d-line pressure. no turnovers by campbell. less than 10 penalties total. then maybe we pull this off.

10 yellow flags, how about 3? Raiders are a different team that's for sure.

i was shocked to only see 7 versus the jets. truly the bane of our existence over the past few years.

HEY, don't talk about my tail!

I disagree with a few of your points above, but I'm not going to vocalize them. I'm busy meditating 24/7 trying to will the Raiders to a WIN. So I'll get back to you on that :-)

Need some advice from my Raider Nation friends....I live on the East coast and have dilemna this weekend. Which is the bigger violation?? We are to meet friends at 7pm which means I will have to leave in the middle of the fourth quarter.

1) Do I miss half the fourth quarter of the game to see friends that we (aka wife) have had on calendar or
2) Blow off the friends (and wife) and watch the whole game live.

re: advice

depends on how well Dah Raiders are doing in the game. you know, there is a "stomach bug" going around that tends to manifest itself around halftime of closely played football games......

Haha! This is great advice.

Good Call

Either way I am sick to my stomach --with either the way the Raiders are playing, or I'll have the "stomach bug" that sometimes lasts only an hour or two.

the above article is an interesting take on our team. last time such talk was being bantered about we got the "big head" and the next team we faced shredded us (see TB and Chucky). I say this talk will be a test of Hue's guidance and make sure we stay level headed and not let talk on how "good we are" get in the way of putting the Pats down. (and as I was there in the snow that night - yes, it was a fumble....not a GD tuck!)
