Here comes the second half, and were all tied up at 10. The catch that wasn’t a catch should have us up. 14-10. We haven’t answered all the questions I raised in the first half.
Some blah blah blah on what happened this weekend that we already saw. And now the…
START OF THE 2ND HALF
This is the first time I’ve seen the Raiders hold LT in check. Very rare, but it’s not over, so I’ll shut up! The Chargers are moving the ball a little with a few solid passing plays.
MCeezy: Chargers are starting to look like they’re supposed to. Tough holding call sets them back a bit. Michael Huff! The forgotten man!!!
MICHAEL HUFF did something good! Right place at the right time!
MCeezy:Big momentum swing back to Oakland’s side. Time to pound away on the ground some more.
Ouch, three and out…
MCeezy: Golic’s right. I do hold my breath every time Russell throws the ball.
Hahaha! ME TOO!
MCeezy:Delay of game…. nice to see a little home field advantage! Greenie’s asking how much of this is the Chargers playing bad…. what do you think?
Well, I’d like to point out to Greenie that they are coached by Norv Turner, and were only 8-8 last year.
MCeezy:You’re right… SD doesn’t look too bad. It looks like the Raiders D is just rising to the occasion. Must be nice to not to be playing from behind.
Yeah, it might have actually been a fun game to go to! I wonder if this game sill get a few fans pumped up enough to sell out some more games?
Nice solid return, they need to get the ground game going again! Ouch another breath holding toss from Jemarcus…
Uh oh, did I awaken LT with my taunting? Wow, we might have gotten a dteal of a deal on Seymour! I love this guy already!
MCeezy: I know the stats back it up, but I don’t the Raiders defense has been that bad over the last few years. They’re just on the field more because the offense has been so inept.
HAHAHA! Rivers is such a poor sport! I think the crying mentality will wear off on the rest of the team. I hope Dre reads this part in the morning. He will destroy your team!
TEXT FROM FERRARI: RIVERS IS SUCH A BITCH!
MCeezy: Rivers with the taunting penalty. Guess that backs up our claim that he’s a hot head and prone to blowups.
Boring third quarter…
MCeezy: I hate to say this… but WHO is Chris Johnson??? I’m as big of a Raider fan as you’ll find but I didn’t know much about this guy before tonight.
I’ve heard of him, but we were so bad last year I probably didn’t watch closely enough to see if he was good.
WOW, huge hit by Mcfadden!
Jemarcus looks like a better blocker than Gallery…
MCeezy:OK, Jamarcus just went up a couple notches in my book. I’ve long questioned his football IQ, but I must say, having a QB who can block downfield like that on an end around is a GREAT asset to have!
Well, atleast they got three before they had time to turn it over. 13-10 Raiders with that Janikowski FG! He must not be drinking tonight he’s 2 for 2.
I forgot to say it’s the 4th quarter! 12:55 after a short Sproles return.
Gates does a nice job of bailing out Rivers. Is it just me or are you more scared of Sproles or Tomlinson these days?
MCeezy: Thomas Howard is extremely underrated.
Yeah he is, he’s even under rated on Madden 2010.
MCeezy: Hahaha, RIGHT on queue! Thomas Howard with a big stop in the backfield. And yes, Sproles is far more troublesome out of the backfield than LT.
Wow, Vincent Jackson just made Asomugha look bad! Or maybe it was just perfectly under thrown… Well, at least we can count on Jeamarcus for a comeback hahaha! 17-13 Chargers 7:22 4th Quarter.
MCeezy: Man, I don’t know that Rivers “put the ball where only his receiver could catch it,” but it fell in the right spot. Now the Raiders really have something to prove. They don’t usually march down the field in these situations, so we’re about to see what the 2009 team is made of.
I won’t lie, my confidence level isn’t through the roof, but they have answered a couple questions so far, hopefully Jemarcus can show some leadership.
Steve Young is having some serious flashbacks! He can barely spit it out as Jemarcus falls under Merriman’s Tequila beating hand. J/K San Diego!For a minute after Jemarcus went down, I wanted to see them just put the wildcat out there…
God, Gradkowski, looks like a punter in there… It’s a very bad sign!
MCeezy:HUGE break. I thought for sure it was another Raider penalty.
Lucky Bailout call! This is a classic Raiders 2008 drive. Time consuming, but don’t go anywhere on the field…
MCeezy: Well… here we go. 3rd and long for with the game on the line. And Higgins is out.
Good thing he got up. I guess we have to go for it!
HOLY SHIT! They actually went for it all! That one might have come from Al himself!
IT’S A NEW YEAR!!!
There’s still 2:35 left, but Oakland is up 20-17 on a 4th and 15 from Jemarcus to Murphy!
MCeezy: Even if they don’t end up winning this game, the Raiders showed a lot tonight. I don’t discount the fact that the Chargers may have regressed, but the Silver & Black have new life this year.
I couldn’t agree more whatever the outcome!
Chargers are driving at their own 28 with 1:58 in the 4th.
MCeezy: Does it get any better than this? Us Raider fans couldn’t have ask for much more. They need to stop em here.
It definitely doesn’t! Lets see Seymour get some pressure! Why are we in prevent, this is retarded…
SD is getting yards for free, down the middle and to Gates…
Cmon Golic check our blog, we already said we were more scared of Sproles than LT what more confirmation do you need. Even Norv knows that!
Wow, are these announcers paying attention, that’s why you have Sproles out there to score a TD!24-20 SD :13 seconds left in the 4th.
MCeezy:We still got way more than we could’ve hoped for. Let’s just hope this doesn’t deflate them for the rest of the year.
I fully agree. I’m satisfied with their effort.
MCeezy: Well they put up a good fight. Nice blogging with you cousin… It’s possible we’re in for an interesting Raider season.
Yup, good times! Let’s hope we’re on the winning side a few more times than last year!
