Rams-Raiders one-liners

A personal foul penalty on DT Fred Robbins proved fatal to the Rams’ hopes of a comeback in the fourth quarter of their 16-14 loss to the Raiders.

The Rams had five total personal fouls, other drive-halting penalties and missed a field goal in a performance that raises the question of whether things are moving in the right direction.

The Rams offense failed to ignite in the second half as the team managed just 56 net yards.

Said Rams CB Ron Bartell on the loss, “We were undisciplined and we got what we

Rams WR Mark Clayton had a pair of touchdown catches as QB Sam Bradford exploited the matchup that didn’t feature Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

After sputtering through the first half with QB Jason Campbell, the Raiders needed only 16 plays to score 10 points after switching to Bruce Gradkowski at halftime.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden also saw a resurgence after the break as he went for 107 yards in the second half after gaining just 38 in the first 30 minutes.

Jared Veldheer, who started at center in the Raiders opener, rotated with Mario Henderson at left tackle on Sunday.

Raiders WR Darius Heyward-Bey set career highs with six catches and 80 yards receiving.

Three big hits by the Raiders on special teams fired up the crowd at the Coliseum in the second half.

  1. I agree IV, but… what I was pleased with is their run D… holding Jackson to 75 yards after last week holding CJ to 66 minus his big one… I really think that maybe be one of their problems that if not solved, is actually getting better. We had so many problems to fix at the beginning of this slide, that, we can’t attack them all at once. I really think the idea was to start with the skill positions, then we addressed the run D, and now I expect next year for us to address the O-line as best we can. I’m hoping for Grads, but I know this team too well, and know Lionel Ritchie will get the start on Sunday… I think if it was a home game it might be different.. but on the road, Al will go with Campbell.

  2. But what Invaiduh? A win is a win, period. This game was the tale of two teams. With Campbell under center, the entire team played uninspired football, and left six points on the field. That’s about the only reason to add “but”.
    When Bruce came out in the second half, you could see a difference not only with the offense, but with the entire team. The attitude was completely different.
    I think it’s a simple choice for next week. Play Campbell and look like the same old bumbling Raiders from the pat seven years, or play Bruce, and have a respectable, competitive team.

  3. tango you fat, retarded, ignorant, hillbilly, redneck bigot: No one gives a damn what you’re sold on, pig! Get it? God (AKA Al Davis) doesn’t give a damn, I don’t give a damn and neither do any other real Raiders fans. The only thing a fat pile of crap like you is sold on is the case of Girl Scout cookies in the basement with you. GFY.

    “When the Rams knock the Raiders heads in I’m going laugh all the way to the bank. At least where I live our banks are safe, and not broken down slums like Oakland.”
    Where the hell are you now, mofo?

  6. WOW … do you morons watch the game?
    The Raiders had the ball for 37 minutes … over 400 yds to Rams 210 yds and 23 minutes and YES … the Raiders had MORE penalties (12) than the Rams (8) … if Gradkowski started the game … it would have been a blowout by half time.

  7. raideralex99: thank you atleast someone actually watched the game. Game should have been lopsided early but like a young team with campbell under center we left 6-10 points out on the field early and more points towards the end of the game as well. It’s all still a learning process for our offense especially getting into the end-zone which i think as long as bruce is under center we will fix. We were on the rams side of the field the whole game and especially in the 2nd half. There is hope for us raider fans as long as bruce is our guy.
