Raiders week 12 Ballers & Busters: Part two

After a pretty sizable Ballers list in the Raiders first win of the season, we move on to the Busters. Busters Darren McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew Yet again, McFadden's lack of vision as well as his inability to break tackles was exposed in this one. Not just by his own performance, but by the glaring upgrade to the run game when Murry and Reece touched the ball. Let's start with Murray doing what McFadden can't. As soon as Murray came in the game, he ran for five yards. That may not seem like a lot, but for McFadden, who averaged 2.4 yards per carry in this game, it is. Three plays later,...

Raiders finally unleash Latavius Murray, Marcel Reece to win "old fashioned Raider way"

This season the Raiders have been starting Darren McFadden with Maurice Jones-Drew getting some carries as well. Over their ten losses this season, they were 0-10 because of their historically bad run game. It was the primary reason for the team having the worst offense in the NFL and the main reason for their not having a win this season. I myself have harped on the issue more and more as the season went on and as the offense continued to struggle. First of all, it was not using Latavius Murray at all. Then it was the Raiders inability to pick up first downs on run plays, even in short...

Raiders look to get Latavius Murray more involved in offense after big runs

Through nearly three quarters of play Sunday, the Raiders had a grand total of 23 yards on the ground on 12 designed runs against the Chargers. Then with 1:21 left in the third quarter, they handed it to Latavius Murray and all that changed. In one carry, Murray broke off 14 yards which was just short of what Darren McFadden had (16) at the time on 7 carries. On the next play, they handed it to Murray again and he broke off 23 yards. That 23 yards run matched the ENTIRE output of the Raiders up to that point. The next time Murray touched the ball, he went for five yards which matched the...

Raiders week 8 Ballers & Busters: Part two

Busters Greg Olson This game was just bizarre from the very start. After three-straight chunks of yards picked up, everything just fell apart. Two of those big chunks early on were big runs (15 and 8). The Raiders were having early success against the Browns porous run defense. So, what did they do? They went away from it. A couple plays later, the wildcat reared its ugly head as Derek Carr split out right as a wide receiver, and Darren McFadden took the snap. He rolled toward Carr, but there was an oncoming rusher in his face as he flung the pass to no man's land. It was the first of many...

Darren McFadden’s lost fumble the game-altering play as Raiders fall 23-13 to Browns

Filed for print . . . The play started out well enough, with running back Darren McFadden breaking free for a 9-yard gain to the 20-yard line and the Raiders threatening to take the lead as the third quarter was… Continue Reading →

Raiders fall to 0-7 with 23-13 loss to Browns

CLEVELAND — The Raiders couldn’t score a touchdown for the first 59 minutes Sunday and were actually in the game for three quarters. But the ending was really never in doubt, was it now, and Oakland fell to 0-7 after Cleveland scored the game’s first touchdown early in the fourth quarter and won 23-13. Former 49ers safety Donte Whitner hit Darren McFadden and forced a fumble with 23 seconds left in the third quarter, after the Raiders, down 9-6, had driven 71 yards to the Cleveland 20. The ball flew into Joe Haden’s hands, who returned it 34 yards to the 47 to set up the Browns...

2015 NFL Draft running backs to watch

It's Saturday and that means College Football. So with that in mine, let's take a look at some runningbacks the Raiders could target in the first or second round in the 2015 NFL Draft. First Round Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia Todd Gurley is the best runningback I have seen in college football since Darren McFadden. Gurley is Marshawn Lynch 2.0 as he can run a sub 4.5 40-yard dash but has a powerful frame at 6'1", 232 pounds. What makes him special is his ability to simply run defenders over like a bulldozer. It is rare when the first defender brings Gurley down. "I don't know if I've faced a...
