TNF- Chargers @ Raiders

CRinCA : 11/7/2019 8:00 pm
For anyone interested.
Pre-game had Alex Rodriguez  
section125 : 11/7/2019 8:11 pm : link
on with Strahan, Long and Gonzalez talking about JLo doing the SB halftime show and a project he is doing with Strahan. I was amazed that he looked "small." ARod is a big boy and he looked 2-3 inches shorter. Mike, Howie and Tony all 6'5". Just shows how big football players are.
I m remembering when Gruden

Traded K. Mack, how stupid he was.

Just goes to show sometimes these guys are smarter than us fans.

Gotta admit those here proclaiming Gruden are looking pretty good right about now
Raiders defense looking good

And Rivers looking like hot garbage.
Imagine the Eli hatred on a BBI game thread  
CRinCA : 11/7/2019 8:55 pm : link
if he threw those 2 picks.
Amazing how Gruden is showing marked  
bradshaw44 : 11/7/2019 9:19 pm : link
Improvement with his team after gutting it one year later.
Bolts now up 14  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 11/7/2019 9:30 pm : link
10.
Rivers has thrown 4 INT's....  
Britt in VA : 11/7/2019 9:31 pm : link
two got called back for the defense lining up in the neutral zone.

Yet, the Chargers are still up 14-10. Amazing. Not sure what that says about the Chargers.
A lot of love..

for Gruden and the Raiders even though with a loss here they will be 4-5 and 3rd place in their division.

The Giants have set the bar so low that now we are ascribing credit to pretty bad teams.
I still can't believe the Raiders are going to

We're so pathetic the impossible dream of being within a win of .500 seems like the impossible, quixotic dream.

So many hot takes regarding the K. Mack trade. Some people love to vilify certain coaches.
Apparently  
Daniel in MI : 11/7/2019 9:48 pm : link
no one knows where the neutral zone is during this game. Hint: It's near the ball.
Now the half time show guys  
Daniel in MI : 11/7/2019 10:00 pm : link
are calling Rivers a HOFer. If he is and Eli isn't, I give up.

Eli is a lock because of the SB trophies; Rivers is not.
Strahan  
Fort Mill Mike : 11/7/2019 10:14 pm : link
After more than 10 years retired, he still looks imposing. He didnít tower over Cena, but definitely looked like the bigger, more powerful dude. Means nothing, but Iíll always be a huge fan of #92.





Raiders Oline is really good..  
prdave73 : 11/7/2019 10:16 pm : link
Wish the Giants had their Oline. How good would Jones behind that Oline? Skys the limits..

Think the pt is the Raiders seem much improved, with arrow pointing up, to say nothing of how a Derek Carr whose performance did nothing to inspire confidence a year ago is a totally different looking player this year.
gruden being too conservative

i would have gone for it there and on the previous series

Heís paid $90 million to attempt a 53 yarder up 6 on the opponents 35 instead of going for it fourth and two. Must be nice. Dan Snyder idiot football book knows you go for it there This isnít that hard yet so many still somehow donít get clock management or situational playcalling
With that said

He seems to be doing a nice job with Carr and has an improved team. Just baffling how many coaches still donít get it with clock management and situational decision making

This is dying out, you rarely see the younger coaches doing dumb shit like that.

Yeah, the young guys do other dumb shit.
So with XPs being less than 2X more probable as a 2 point conversion  
BestFeature : 11/7/2019 11:25 pm : link
Isn't there something to be said to go for 2 in that situation. I think with a minute left the odds of winning up 4 is more than twice the odds of winning up 3.
This is one of the worst potential game winning drives I've seen in my

Obviously Rivers has been around forever  
kennyd : 11/7/2019 11:33 pm : link
but I still can't get past that throwing motion. It still looks like he's shot putting the ball.

The Raiders already have as many wins as Shurmur tends to get in an entire season.

I personally don't think it's that simple. Hindsight is 20/20 and all that. He was trying to make it a 2-score game, and maybe he just has trust in his kicker, or trusts his defense (i.e. was betting if they made that the Chargers couldn't orchestrate 2 scoring drives against his D over the last 1.5 quarters of the game), ... or he doesn't have trust in his short-yardage offense, etc. Either way, he knows his team better than we do and I have no problem with coaches sometimes going with their gut rather than analytics all the time.

Banks : 11/8/2019 1:24 am : link
I thought he should have went for it, but the raiders had netted 156 yards at that point and the defense was responsible for half their points. FWIW, bolts responded by losing 15 yards and punting. I'll give Gruden and Mayock credit. People thought Gruden was washed up and made insane decisions. They also turned on Mayock and he is suddenly viewed as a guy that can't evaluate talent. They are fielding a very competitive team
