Raiders vs Texans AFC Wildcard playoff thread 

Post#1 » by GoRapstheoriginal » Sat Jan 7, 2017 8:57 pm

Raiders vs Texans 4:35 pm ET 1:35 PT

http://www.espn.com/nfl/game?gameId=400932688

Keys to the game:

#1. Limit turnovers/force Texans to turn it over.
#2. Oline has to protect Cook & get the running game going.
#3. No presnap penalties/limit penalties on us to 5 or less for entire game.
#4. D# has to step up huge/blitz/pressure Brock.

I'm terrible at these, I've got nasal congestion & will be watching this in the living room & running back & forth to update.
Got a housewarming party at 7pm but they are both Cowboy fans & I told them I'd be over AFTER the game, they understand.

GO RAIDERS GO!

here we go guys. it is snowing like a mofo here in Oregon but the Raiders are in Houston. this must mean the universe is balancing itself and our tuckrule game is about to go anti-karma.

Jon Gruden is wrong about why Conner lasted until the 4th round but whatever, right now he is our rookie Tom Brady and time to channel in some good ole Al... Just Win Baby!

understandable call there at 3rd and 9 but disappointing call none the less. that play had no chance to get the first down from the get go. I know we want young Conner to have a completion and feel good about himself but come on.

that field goal was a near miss.. damn it. it bounced off of the bottom bar and rolled in. it could have easily bounced out or come up a little short.

terrible playcalling.... cant be running every first and second down against the best D in the league... gotta take a chance with the kid and not change our offensive philosophy....


my god the roof just caved in. we have got to hold them down to a field goal here.... couldnt have called worse plays to start this game....

jesus..

from the beginning of the game I gave ourselves 10 points to win it ugly.. they already got there. now we have to win it in a shoot out. our coaches have to let Conner throw the damn ball.

we are not going to win this game with defense and running game alone. we might as well open up the playbook for this kid right now.

JDR made the right decision here. that's a catch no doubt. this is huge for Conner's confidence building. now I would take a chance deep once this is called a first down. go deep with Coop or run a sweep route with a running back to the other side. go for a goddamn TD right here... I know this will be a catch and a first down!
