Raiders shut out Chiefs, or was it A’s-Royals?

Kansas City Chiefs v Oakland Raiders Getty Images

The Raiders had lost six straight, and are looking squarely at a top-five draft pick.

They looked dominant Sunday.

Faced with a Chiefs team that seemed allergic to yardage, the Raiders cruised to a 15-0 win on five Sebastian Janikowski field goals. Darren McFadden ran 30 times for 110 yards, mercifully keeping the clock moving as the Raiders improved to 4-10.

The Chiefs went on a rampage in the second half, gaining 102 yards after the break after posting 17 yards on 18 plays in the first half.

The loss drops the Chiefs to 2-12, firmly in contention for the top pick in the draft. That’s all that really matters any more there.

    Tom Brady would’ve had a brain aneurysm playing with these receivers. When’s the open tryout? I can probably gain as much separation from DBs as much as Jon Baldwin can.

    Re – zero.

    If I’m Romeo Crennel Jon Baldwin isn’t playing another snap for me this season.

    So he can’t separate. OK, neither can their other WRs, BUT I also saw a plain lack of effort from the guy. He had a sense of entitlement at Pitt and I’m guessing it’s carried over. It’s one thing when a good WR is a headcase, but somebody as inept as Baldwin?

    Yeah, move over Breaston. There’s a new guy in the doghouse.

    Hat tip to Dexter McCluster who played a very hard game today.

    Ugly game. Not very fun to watch, but the defense played well. Granted I know it was the Chiefs, but man they have looked awful. Always happy to see a win, and it keeps me in line to win 20 bucks.

    If I’m Romeo Crenell I turn to telemarketing.
    It’s less embarrassing.

    Jesus what a brutal game.Glad the Raiders won but man was that ugly.Btw is Geno Smith still the supposed best player in the draft?Havent heard a thing about him since reality set in for WVU in the Big 12

    In my best Cosmo Spacely voice , Pioli you`re FIRED !

  7. ukraiders says: Dec 16, 2012 7:44 PM

    the chiefs went in a rampage in the 2nd half racking up 107 yds….

    That was hilarious!

  8. 7pints says: Dec 16, 2012 7:46 PM

    Hahahahah! Was that football?

  9. westcoastraider says: Dec 16, 2012 7:54 PM

    The D looked good, Tarvers showing he deserves to be kept… I don’t know about knapp however.. It takes a complete idiot to run the same damn play three times in a row and expect a different result..

    The first step to respectability, fire Gregg Knapp

    “They looked dominant Sunday.”

    I wouldn’t say a 5 Field Goals was dominant game. Had that been 5 Touchdowns, I’d be on the “dominant” bandwagon.

    I was disappointed that the Raiders let the Chiefs get loose in the second half. They had a chance to hold them to zero first downs for the game.

  12. gibbyfan says: Dec 16, 2012 8:09 PM

    The Raiders had a chance to start to see what TP could do at quarterback. It was a no loss proposition. The worst that could have happened was to improve their draft pick. I would think how they regard TP is critical to how they regard where they are going. But, for Heaven only knows what reason that audition was apparewntly limited to 2 snaps and then back to Palmer who is definitely not the future –Man can someone on here help me out–what gives with this team. Is the managemnt really this inept or am I missing something—

    Hey joeychargers, do you know who looked great today? Norv Turner. You must be so proud!

    Pryor is not an NFL QB,,he is an athlete that the idiot Davis fell in love with, like so many other athletes and not football players he wasted draft picks on..this is Reggie’s first year..if you thought they were going to be good this year with that pathetic defense, you’re a dolt..this is going to take at least 2-3 years to turn this thing around..Davis left Reggie with a huge mess both financially and with terrible players

    I think what the Raiders are saying is that they have so many holes to fill that Palmer is the future, at least for now. They’re handcuffed by the draft picks the previous regime gave up for Palmer, and don’t believe Pryor is the answer.

  16. joeychargers says: Dec 16, 2012 8:49 PM

    I am so proud, that they’re going to fire him.

    And I wasn’t talking down about the Raiders… I’m glad they won a game!

  17. gibbyfan says: Dec 16, 2012 9:00 PM

    Hey Tooz –I dont think I said anything about thinking they were going to good and everything else your saying is common knowledge to any fan. Been A Raider fan longer than most and agree that AD did in fact ruin the team but my only poin t is this for better or worse they have TP–He is physically gifted and just maybe Al got this one right—my only point is why not take a look and see–there is no downside

  18. mullman76 says: Dec 16, 2012 9:10 PM

    The Raiders need to win their final two games. It’s the least they can do.

  19. ckinthekc99 says: Dec 16, 2012 9:10 PM

    I didnt think the Raiders were that much better than the Chiefs, a division rival, but the fact that they dominated this team says otherwise. The Raiders were the worst defense in the league & shutout this team. Raider fans…it can be worse obviously

  20. justwinsomeday says: Dec 16, 2012 9:13 PM

    My 2-cents on why they’re not playing Pryor

    1) what they see in practice shows he’s not ready

    2) Allen knows his best chance of returning next year is to win some games and he feels Palmer gives him a better opportunity

    3) both 1 & 2

  21. gibbyfan says: Dec 16, 2012 9:41 PM

    That does make sense to me Justwin— although it would be wildly self serving —

    The Chiefs were good, they played well in some areas.

    That’s what Pioli and Crennel would have you believe. But the mighty mite football players even know the product sucks. It’s just Pioli is smarter than everyone in the world. 4 years in and this is exactly his plan.

    In reality, benching Breaston makes ZERO sense, 5 yard passes on 3rd and long is maybe the most disgusting play in football. But the Chiefs coming up 7 yards short every time in that scenario has got to be a league leading average. Good work, Browns coaches…

    Clark Hunt; what happened to make you hate the fans, your dad, and the Chiefs players so much?

    “my only poin t is this for better or worse they have TP–He is physically gifted and just maybe Al got this one right—my only point is why not take a look and see–there is no downside”
    ================

    He IS gifted. But, those gifts don’t include a couple of important ones…. making reads at NFL speed and throwing the ball to the place it needs to be. He’s awesome at the whole running around thing.

    The coaching staff sees him every practice. Every drill. Do you really believe that if there was something there that they wouldn’t try everything possible to capitalize on it? Especially now when seats must be getting warm?
    These guys do football for a living. They know very well how their future is tied to success on the field. Do you honestly think they wouldn’t fall all over themselves to be the crew that developed the first homegrown Raider star QB in decades?
    If there was any chance at all that Pryor could be that player, they’d be all over it. Guaranteed.

    Playing him at this point only creates the possibility of value eroding misplays on film.

    He is not on the agenda for the future for a reason. Nobody will convince me that a bunch of amateur GMs know more than the guys who see him every day at practice.

    I wonder if this time Crennel has an idea about why they hardly used Jamaal Charles. Seriously, you’re down 1-2 scores for most of the game. You can give him some carries! It’s OK! You don’t need to pass 30+ times!

  25. mojodoa says: Dec 17, 2012 3:05 AM

    That was fugly. Knapp has got to go.

    Palmer the QB of the future? Not at 15 million.

  26. joetoronto says: Dec 17, 2012 5:02 AM

    At least the Raiders recognized the problem and have started rebuilding.

    You can’t say that about the Chiefs and Chargers.

    ..i’m just saying he is NOT gifted..he cant read an NFL defense..he takes off running if his first read isnt there..has average arm strength and intelligence..Reggie will cut him, guaranteed,,he’s a TE at best, not an NFL QB..Al didnt learn with JaWalrus

  28. tdk24 says: Dec 17, 2012 9:14 AM

    Mark Davis said he wanted to see progress. 5 FG’s against the Chiefs is not progress.

  29. jjackwagon says: Dec 17, 2012 9:23 AM

    This turned out to be the suckfest everyone thought it would be. Why haven’t Pioli and Crennel been fired yet?
    As bad as this game was, I can’t imagine how bad the Raiders/Chargers game at is going to be.
    Is it a coincidence that the Raiders will be involved in the two worst games of the season? I think not.
    BTW good win Raiders! LMAO!!

  30. nflofficeadmin says: Dec 17, 2012 12:21 PM

    If Carson is the QB of the future, the future looks bleek.

  31. radrntn says: Dec 17, 2012 12:27 PM

    and I thought the raiders were bad. Well let me correct that…the raiders are bad, the chiefs are terrible..what happened to the good ol days of the raiders vs the chiefs for the west…..i hope we both get back on track

    Funny the rampage they went on in the second half you refer to in your post, mostly came from the flags the refs threw.
