What happened the last time we played the Raiders?  How can we look so good against the Broncos and Chiefs and so bad against the Raiders?  Hopefully these are not the same questions I’ll be asking myself after tomorrow’s game.  I do not believe that we lose this game but, to ensure the victory, here are just some of the players who need to show up:

Ladarius Green

When we talk about players showing up, the first name that comes to mind is Green’s.  He dominated for two games in a row and then disappeared for two games in a row.  In fact, my colleague is still mad at me for suggesting he pick up Green and start him against the Giants…oops.  Green is a deceptively fast, big bodied target and I’d love to see him get a little more involved in the offense.  He needs to work on his run blocking but he’s shown what he can do in the passing game when he’s in there.

  • Derek

    From I hear Allen’s running something similar to Rex last yr. mcgloin offense with Pryor package near goal line. I hear he’s trying all the plays because his jobs on the line. We need pagano to keep it up. Only thing we that helps is usually Pryor is used in the redzone so don’t gotta necessarily worry bout him running around buying time for his recievers to burn us. We need to study their eagles game.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Vincent Brown for some reason the guy is a world beater when he plays the Raiders has over 200 yards in his last 2 games vs the silver & black.

  • Alter Ego

    Nice piece Dave.

    The DBs in my opinion have to be stout – Da Raiders have an exceptionally gifted young receiving corps. I have my eye on Weddle – he sets the table.
    Manti must be the MLB we drafted him to be. He must pull his weight. It is time to shine.

    It all is about Phillip though…spot on and smart. I predict that he will be.
    4 passing TDs / 400 yrds this game.
    Bold and confident.

    Go Bolts!
