When Rivers looks bad, his fucking arm looks terrible. Just duck arm punts.

I don't understand how the Raiders are half a game out of the playoffs right now. Apparently the AFC is just that bad?

They’re just not a horrible team, which is sad. Because it’d be way funnier if they were. Gruden has been genuinely pretty damn good this year imo. Especially with the offense where he’s consistently putting Derek Carr in a position to succeed despite his inability to throw the ball more than 5 yards down the field.

hardknocks made the raiders look like a joke, which made people underrate them.

also, OAK's west coast offense against defenses that are used to pass-happy offenses

Aside from Jacobs, they don't strike me as all that good... Their defense is bottom 25% in basically everything, and they average 23 PPG to 26 given up. I guess to the Gruden nod, they really aren't turning the ball over, which probably helps, but man.

Their resume reads like a 7-9 team, not a potential 10-6 team (Bengals/Jets/Broncos ought to be 3 guaranteed wins, and Titans/Jags/Chargers aren't a scary 3 games, either).

They don't make a ton of really stupid mistakes, which is a boost in itself.

Quandre Diggs post Lions trade is talking about how a lot of the locker room is fed up with Patricia's hard ass ways. Who knew that doing this exact same plot for the 50th time would fail?

Hard to see them resigning him after this year. Might as well draft someone for the future and move on.

They entirely have the makeup of a "beat the ravens or chiefs for us in the first round of the playoffs and then proceed to get destroyed the following week" type of team.

They in no way can beat any of the top 4 AFC teams.

I do not like this version of reality.

idk the AFC is wide open and the Raiders have an easy schedule. The next two gams are against the Jets and Bengals, could be 7-4, then the last 5 games are against Chiefs, Titans, Jaguars, Broncos & Chargers. Could win 3 out of 5. I wouldn't be surprised if they made it.

This same thing happened to a much worse titans team like 2 years ago when they knocked off the chiefs in the first round when they had a 24 point advantage because andy reid school of play calling allowed them back into the game.

We're all looking like dopes for shitting on Gruden. And the Mack & Cooper trades are working out great for them.

I'll never figure out why teams pass on guys like Maxx Crosby, though.

He was #1 in this "twitch" formula that I found a long time ago

Not everyone in here was shitting on Gruden. As for Crosby he was the 106th pick which seems about right.
