The Raiders suck more than one of those fancy Dyson vacuum cleaners

The Oakland Raiders went to down to Miami to play the Dolphins and they somehow made the Dolphins look like playoff contenders.

This was one of the worst games I can remember watching. Carson Palmer was just awful. He was able to pad his stats after the Dolphins were up by 34 points. Before that, he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. It was the seventeenth time he’s done that. He sucked so bad, it made me want to see Kyle Boller take the offence.

Speaking of sucking, Richard Seymour couldn’t control himself again. I’m starting to see a pattern here. For the second time as a Raider, he punched an opposing player and was ejected from the game. It’s more than a little ridiculous at this point, especially considering that he’s one of the team captains.

What a joke.

The Raiders are now 7-5. They go to Green Bay next week where they will undoubtedly leave Wisconsin 7-6.

  1. @Ryan: I have nothing but respect for the 2011 Dolphins. They never played like their record. Half the seats were empty at kickoff, yet the Dolphins played like professionals.

  3. McClain hadn’t even prepared for the Dolphins this week, he was out of state the entire time. Regardless of what people think about him suiting up after an arrest, he simply wasn’t ready to go.

    Injuries also had something to do with the loss. You look at the team that started the season before injuries, to what you saw yesterday. They have been trying to reinvent themselves every game due to new starters playing on both sides of the ball. It caught up to them, and it was clear people were not in sync. Even if the injured starters on offense might be almost ready to play, I guarantee they have them sit out once again next week. They’re not going to put them at risk against GB and in the cold weather. Next Sunday 7-6, and possibly a whole game behind Denver.

  5. @Harry B: Injuries are part of football, no? I just think they went into Miami thinking they were going to get a win just by showing up. They were wrong.

    I’m so fed up with Seymour. If he’s not getting penalized 15 on a 3rd down play, he’s getting thrown out of the game for doing something stupid. Penalties are something the opposing linemen should be getting trying to block him. Instead, it’s the opposite.

  7. @Rick R: Yes, injuries are part of football. Injuries also change the way the team prepares for each opponent, or what they are going to implement for the next game. Injuries may have a profound effect on a team’s production. Injuries affect a kicker’s kicking range. They affect which person is going to be running the offense. They affect the timing between QB and WR (having not had as many reps in practice with depth chart WR’s). There is a reason why the backups are backups. They don’t produce as well as the starters.

    Here is the thing that bothered me more than anything: David Boss dropping a pass that was catchable, on *consecutive* plays, that would have resulting in first down. Inexcusable.
