02:44 PM ET 10.19 | Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp is still committed to his zone-blocking scheme, but he's adjusting it somewhat in an attempt to get RB Darren McFadden going. Knapp told the San Francisco Chronicle that he added more power blocking looks against the Atlanta Falcons: "We did some more one-back power and we emphasized, instead of wide zone, we did some tight zone as change ups...But it was still a pretty good mix in (32) rushes." The adjustments appeared to pay dividends, as McFadden racked up 98 total yards and a TD as the Raiders took the Falcons down to the wire.

You were doing great last year. Your QB got injured, so you gave up a lot to get an A list QB(so they say) and what happened?

They didn't get an A list quarterback, that's for sure.

They actually aren't that far away from being a division contender mainly depth issues
