NFL Week 3: Oakland Raiders prepare for the Denver Broncos


I would like everybody to stand and take a moment of silence for the Oakland Raiders defense.

Now everybody can open their eyes and be seated. Man oh man, I feel bad for the fans of Oakland who have to witness a possible slaughter on Monday Night.

I think after this game we should rename Peyton Manning, Jason Voorhees. I have a feeling he’s going to treat this Raiders defense like camp counselors from the first to last whistle of the game. If he threw seven touchdown passes against the defending champions, how many do you think he could throw against the Oakland Raiders?

Right now Peyton has an incredible total of 769 passing yards and nine touchdowns with ZERO interceptions. Ontop of that, he’s only been sacked three times in the last two weeks. So if he continues to get the protection he needs, he’ll end up throwing more than seven against Oakland. Wouldn’t that be coconuts?

Anyways, wide receiver Eric Decker was able to get things together as he brought in nine receptions for 87 receiving yards. He led all eight Manning targets in yards and receptions but didn’t record a touchdown. Both Wes Welker and Julius Thomas had 35+ yards receiving with both Manning’s touchdowns.

This defense picked off Peyton’s little brother four times in this game.

Knowshon Moreno finally got things rolling as he rushed for 93 yards on 13 carries and two touchdowns as the rookie Monte Ball continues to struggle early on.

Peyton finished the game 30 for 42 with 307 yards passing and two touchdowns. Still putting up perfect numbers.

Now let’s talk about the possible victims on Monday. Oakland picked up a 19-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, so watch out Denver.

All jokes aside, Pryor wasn’t really able to get anything major done except for getting Janikowski in field goal range. But let’s face it, the man could probably hit a 75 yard field goal.

McFadden rushed for 129 yards on 19 carries as he had more yards than his quarterback had passing yards.

Pryor picked up 50 yards with his legs on nine carries and went 15 for 24 for 126 passing yards.

Oakland’s only touchdown came from running back Marcel Reece.

What a game to close out Week 3.

    Are you really that dense? The ravens were missing nine defensive players from last years, Including their two top team leaders. The Giants defense is also suspect right now. Manning put up big inflated numbers against subpar defenses and you are ready to crown him king? Look, the media makes their living off of pulling bullshit out of thin air please don’t jump on board and be another pundit. The Raiders are ranked sixth in total defense in the league and are tired for the league lead in sacks. Their past rush is one of the best in the league to this point and that started against the Colts offense that a few commentators have already picked to win the Super Bowl prior to that game.

    Don’t sit here and give me this bull crap that Peyton Manning will run all over the Raiders because he did that to a deflated ravens team and a subpar Giants team. Give me a break. I’m not saying the Raiders will win but stop the cloud of BS and realize that the Raiders are not the Raiders of last year and that they are a tough physical team with one of the most athletic quarterbacks in the game under Center and one of the best running backs in the game, and the best fullback in the game. They are stacked in depth in their secondary with guys who can disrupt just about every pass that Peyton Manning will make

      Youre taking stats about the raiders “defense” from the colts and the JAGUARS. Theyre rallying for tebow down there and you think being “sixth in total defense” means nothing (just like picking the colts to go to the superbowl means nothing).

      I am getting diabetes from all the sugar coating. Most athletic QB? Qbs need to throw, ask the jobless Tebow how good it is to be “athletic”. If you had a defense that can “disrupt just about every pass”, why did they allow Luck to throw 2 TDs and zero INTs? You couldnt stop/out perform luck but youre going to stop PFM with your “stacked” defense. (im not even going to get into your “best RB and FB” comment, too easy)

      thanks for the W

    Cont-

    I’ll just cap It off with this piece of reality for you. It will be a lot closer of a game then the Broncos have had thus far and you for one my friend will be one of the many people who will say “geez… maybe the Raiders aren’t so bad after all”, while scratching your head and having to rethink the way you approach future articles so they are not padded with crap.

    Any given week, any team can win/lose. Just ask the 49ers!! Some teams show up(or don’t), and others show out (Seattle) The raiders could have been 2-0, but a couple of interceptions from a very athletic QB (in time will get better with decision making),a missed field goal (from a kicker who is usually money within 50yrds), and a hold by a receiver (DHB/hayden) that helped an Andrew luck T.D. I think the raiders should be okay, and possibly have a chance to pull a win out in Denver come Monday night. Not taking anything away from Denver, but please don’t count us out. This oakland team is definitely not the same team from a year ago, and are depth in the secondary is improved, along with a D-line that has done a pretty good job stopping the run and not to mention already has 9 sacks. Add the rivalry and it should be interesting! Lets go Raider Nation!!!

    If oakland takes it, lets see what you’ll write next!?

    • Tim Streker

      now can i count you out?

  • Anthony Rosales Sr.

    What an idiot……

    • Tim Streker

      clearly

  • Pauly

    Okay first things first get off the freaking pipe The defense picked off four interceptions from his brother So did the Cowboys His brother is a bum And just imagine this one One good hit from Houston And lets Say your little quarterback is out for the game And then what

    • Tim Streker

      you lost

  • Angel Becerra

    Sounds like someone is really taking in the horse meat if you know what I mean.

  • Steven

    I wonder if David Miniel has a hunch that the Broncos will win on Monday…

    One of the worst articles I’ve read in a while; very one-sided. Based on what he wrote, the Raiders might as well just forfeit and prepare for Week 4.

    Any given Sun…Monday, Mr. Miniel.

  • Silvia Arredondo

    Anything is possible. Noone can rule out the underdog just yet.

  • Suwoop

    Whoever wrote this article is an absolute idiot!!

  • bambam

    Raiders.raiders.raiders

  • bambam

    And fuck u david miniel raider nation! Stand up!

  • David Alejandro Miniel

    THIS! Is the kind of interaction I was looking for. I love the passion you guys have for your team. I respect it.

  • David Alejandro Miniel

    Oh and I said Possible Victims..

    • Steven

      The Raiders are thankful for the small gleam of hope you’ve given them.

      • David Alejandro Miniel

        Good!

  • James Holtslander

    Someone’s still bitter from the 59 we put on them a few years ago.

    • Tim Streker

      Someone’s still bitter from the 63-19 combined scores from last year. Nice way to reach into the past tho.

  • Tim Streker

    So many salty, sugar coating, dumb raiders fans. Ill admit this article is biased, but it has every right to be. All the signs point to the black hole sucking per usual. You brag about your defense but couldnt stop Luck and barely got by jacksonville. Youre pumping up your own stats against shitty teams, you dont have the defense to stop PFM. End of story, thats not debatable. You might be able to slow him down, maybe pick up a few fumbles or (his first) INT but stopping him is quite the reach. Id be more worried about your mediocre QB and injury prone RB more than anything tho…

    • Steven

      Sounds like you and David Miniel should be holding hands, walking into the sunset together. Let me guess: you’re a Bears fan, too?

      • David Alejandro Miniel

        Sounds like a plan! Tim, you down?

        • Tim Streker

          Yup. Us holding hands would probably pose more of a threat than whatever the black whole can throw at peyton manning lol

  • Derrick Constantino

    Must be written by a Broncos fan. Denver beat up on a completely different Ravens defense with subs everywhere. The Giants have NO LBs or secondary. Don’t forget that Denver’s alleged defense gave up all kinds of points. Decker and the Thomases aren’t scaring ANYONE, and despite the TD vs B-More, Welker did NOTHING. Denver’s “defense” will get ran over by McFadden, Pryor, and Jennings. Oakland 27, Denver 20.

    • David Alejandro Miniel

      Actually, I’m a Chicago Bears fan.

      • Steven

        You could’ve fooled me with this article…

        • David Alejandro Miniel

          I wasn’t trying to fool anybody. If you look at my picture, you can clearly see a Chicago Bears beanie on my skull.

    • David Alejandro Miniel

      You were right.

  • Hangtownie

    Denver lost it’s starting left tackle Clady. Divisional game, anything can happen.
