Raiders week 2 Ballers

Raiders week 2 Ballers

After the Raiders second half collapse against the Rams, it was off to Denver…where they had a second half collapse. There was some progress though. Or it would appear. This time they only blew a 12-point lead and managed to score once in the second half. So, the result was a crushing game-winning field goal instead of just getting routed as they did in the opener. In this one, it was a few plays that eluded them. The result was a late drive by the Broncos to kick the game winning field goal. Ballers Derek Carr, Amari Cooper The opener was an out and out disaster for Carr. And part of...

Raiders week 2 Busters

Raiders week 2 Busters

The Busters in another tough loss for the Raiders. Busters Tahir Whitehead Again, I ask you to pull your face out of the stat sheet. Whitehead led the team with 6 tackles (5 solo). But that doesn’t tell the story of his day. The Broncos weren’t getting much in the first half on offense. Their biggest play was a 53-yard run on which Whitehead was blocked to clear the path. He was later blocked on an 11-yard run. The Broncos had just 79 yards rushing in the first half and Whitehead was at least partially responsible for 64 of them while he was yet to log a tackle. To lead out the second...

The Game Manager, Week 2: Winning ugly

The Game Manager, Week 2: Winning ugly

There’s no such thing as a moral defeat. Also: This week, the 49ers face a young, inexperienced QB. Hot take: Richard Sherman: The Lions win “feels like a loss”. Cold give: With all due respect to Mr. Sherman — and I’m feeling a lot of respect for him at the moment — wins and loses know not of feelings. They’re remorseless beasts. You can’t say, “There’s no such thing as a moral victory” without acknowledging that a win’s a win no matter what feels it gives you. And if it gets you to .500 just as Reuben Foster is returning, and maybe Marquise Goodwin with him, well...

Oakland Raiders: The good, bad, and ugly from week two loss to Denver

The Oakland Raiders dropped a gut-wrencher of a game in Denver in week two – time to take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the loss. Well, at least the Oakland Raiders can say they didn’t have anybody retire on them at halftime. Have to take the Silver and Black […] Oakland Raiders: The good, bad, and ugly from week two loss to Denver - Golden Gate Sports - Golden Gate Sports - A Bay Area Sports Site

Giants’ Crawford details extent of knee injury, plus lineups

SAN DIEGO -Brandon Crawford believes his range at short has declined a tick because a knee injury that has dogged him for much of the season has stolen his quick first step. He could have fooled us. Crawford's defense has been exceptional again. He could be destined to his four consecutive Gold Glove. His hitting is a different matter. After a May performance worthy of National League Player of the Month, which he lost to the Reds' Scooter Gennett, Crawford raised his batting average and OPS to .338 and .921, respectively, by June 10. But those numbers have plummeted since to .255 and .715....

49ers make 3 changes to unofficial depth chart, have one release to make

49ers make 3 changes to unofficial depth chart, have one release to make

The 49ers unofficial depth chart welcomes back Reuben Foster. The San Francisco 49ers PR department released their unofficial depth chart for Week 3 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, and there are some changes of note. The key to this is the “un” in unofficial because this has little to no input from the coaching staff. This week’s depth chart includes George Kittle moved into the No. 1 tight end spot over Garrett Celek. This is not breaking news, but catching up with where things stand. Additionally, Matt Breida had previously been listed as the No. 1 running back, and Alfred Morris was...

Raiders call up Shilique Calhoun from the practice squad, drop DT Brian Price

Raiders call up Shilique Calhoun from the practice squad, drop DT Brian Price

Two weeks ago, the Raiders claimed Brian Price off waivers from the Cowboys and released former 7th round pick Treyvon Hester. It was a questionable move considering Hester had a promising first season and looked pretty good in the preseason this year as well. But the Raiders wanted to see what Price had to offer. Not much as it turns out. Price was inactive for the first game and played 17 snaps for an injury depleted defensive line last Sunday against the Broncos. And two days later, he was waived in favor of Shilique Calhoun. The former third round pick Calhoun showed the first signs of...

Watch Raheem Mostert make a great special teams tackle

Watch Raheem Mostert make a great special teams tackle

Mostert leads the NFL in special teams tackles through two games. Special teams coverage units are one of the oft-overlooked units in football. We talk about the kicker and punter, as well as return men, but coverage units are key — particularly punt return coverage. Which brings us to Raheem Mostert. The 49ers running back is arguably the team’s best player on special teams, and we’re seeing it on the stat sheet. Mostert had three special teams tackles in Week 2 (h/t 49ers PR director Bob Lange), and he now leads the league with five such tackles. Mostert was all over the field on...

Jon Gruden says Raiders tackle Kolton Miller will be ‘big-time player’

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden thinks that left tackle Kolton Miller can be a star. Miller was selected No. 15 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft to replace left tackle Donald Penn, one of the game’s best. At 6-foot-9, Miller is a towering force on the offensive line. Many pundits were skeptical about Penn […] The post Jon Gruden says Raiders tackle Kolton Miller will be ‘big-time player’ appeared first on ClutchPoints.
