Andre Rison was the difference in a very mediocre game between the Raida's and the Bolts. Rison caught 4-5 balls and scored a TD with about 3:00 minutes to go putting the Raida's up for good. I thought he looked really good for them. RATS!

AZ

Oak 1-0
KC 0-1
SD 0-1

Leaf's numbers were not impressive but he really battled physically all day. He threw 3 INTs and there could've been easily 2 or 3 more. However, I think even Raida fans were impressed with the way he hung in there. He was knocked out of the game 3 times. Once, his face and neck covered with blood from a cut on his chin.

The best thing that I liked about the Raider game was the crappy punting by Lechler and Jano blowing a 41 yarder.

donkhater,

Where did you get crappy punting by Lechler from???

He averaged over 4.5 in hangtime with distance and pinned the ball at the one...

I was impressed with Rison's willingness to go across the middle.

Upshaw is a dirty S.O.B. That late hit (helmet first) into Leaf's chin was cheap and could have caused serious damage. His checkbook will be 25k lighter by next week. What amazed me the most is that none of the Charger offensive linemen went after him. Leaf obviously doesn't have the respect of his team mates.

Didn't hit a 29-yarder? From what I saw he put plenty through the endzone from the 50 yard line.

I guess when you punt 10 times, the bad ones don't seem as bad.

I can just hear the myopic Raider fans on JT's radio show tonight.

Because they pulled out a lucky win today, they will talking Division title or even more, Super Bowl.

No wonder people like to smack Oakland in the mouth. What a bunch of dreamers.

Problem is, they might be right. They have a whole bunch of crappy teams on their schedule. They can afford to play like crap and still eek out wins against crappy teams. We on the other hand cannot afford to make a single mistake with our schedule. We made way, way, way too many today, and a team like Indy is going to jump all over those mistakes...

I watched the whole game, and Leaf physically battled while being beat up. What upset me, however, is how the classless Faider fans booed when Leaf went to the sideline after being attended to from injury.

2-0 in the fourth? At home? Mighty impressive...

If Rison is winning the game for you, I wouldn't be too excited...<BR>

stevieray,

I'd take a hard hitting, defensive 9-6 WIN any day over a 41-38 win, or a loss at home for that matter. Rison played well and SD is NOT a crappy team.


Some bitter folks here.

I'm not bitter. If Rison was still a Chief, you would've been beat at home. I didn't say San Diego was a crappy team, but are they the caliber of the Colts? We stayed pretty even with a SB contender.

Good to be trading barbs with you...finally. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/tongue.gif

Andre Rison wouldn't have made a bit of difference for us today.

Amazing how easy it is to look good against the Chargers' secondary. Heck, they're probably nearly as bad as...ours.

In any case, our biggest passing game weakness is at QB, not wideout.

Stevie,

I'm not saying SD is in the Indy category, but they have a much better defense than does Indy.... Seau, Parella, Harrison and Dumas are excellent as is their defensive playcalling. We will get Indy next week so it will be seen how good the RAIDER defense is.

Iguana... if you say that SD can't play pass defense, well... it's obvious that you haven't seen them play.

09-03-2000, 09:35 PM
Take away the dropped balls and Elvis is a hero. He had more dropped passes than poorly thrown passes.

Lockett should be our #1 reciever..hands down. He may not be a speed demon...BUT HE CATHES EVERYTHING! Morris looked good. And will be our #1 next year.

SD has a good D but it is basically the same D that we beat 35-0 at home last year. Remember, Rison said you guys should score 25-30 points a game with the guys you have, and ain't nothing noone can do about it.

Sort of reminded me of the puntfest that was the 7-6 Raider win two years ago with Wade Wilson throwing the long TD pass to win it.

And apparently Gannon caught a break in this game that his fumble bounced right back into his lap on that last drive, at least that was according to the radio guys.

But bottom line, you guys are 1-0. Oh well. The good news is my friend lost out on winning $7000 on his 8 game parlay because the Chiefs/Colts game was under by 3 points, and if the Raiders were going to cover (the last game on his parlay) he was going to kill me for telling him to take the over on the Chiefs game... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Sure Duck he catches everything, but he struggles to get open. Indy's 5'8" corners were jamming him at the line.

Arman,

Please don't mention that 27 punt 7-6 game... that was inept football at it's best...
Today IMO, there was great defense played on both sides of the ball... I don't mind that too much as the O will come around.
It's after 2 years of watching soft zones... it was great to see man to man,agressive blitzing defense again... just my personal taste.

Michael Michigan

Maybe, but on the other hand maybe that's because you can afford to do that agains the San Diego offense and Leaf? I dunno. I don't recall the Chargers scoring much in the Oakland game last year either...
