Part of that has been due to offensive woes though the Oakland Raiders’ defense has been just as bad if not more woeful. In fact, there was a point during the first quarter when the Oakland Raiders attempted to cover three Miami Dolphins wide receivers with just one defensive back.
Sound too impossible to believe? Well, believe it.
Now in fairness to Dennis Allen and the Oakland Raiders coaching staff it’s obvious the team is attempting to blitz here. But do they not think that an NFL quarterback, despite the incoming blitz, isn’t going to simply dump off a pass? All it would have taken from the Miami Dolphins is an audible to a screen and the lucky wideout would have been able to crawl for a touchdown.
If you were wondering, yes, the Miami Dolphins did end up scoring on the drive and it’s going to take a miraculous comeback if the Oakland Raiders are to avoid starting the season with an 0-4 record.
That heat you’re currently feeling as you finish reading this post is from the fire under Dennis Allen’s seat.
