Not that the raiders suck, but we should win this game.

I don't think the score will be close either. Jmo.

That would be epically bad, though it has happened to me before in FF, but I don't think the NFL does "adjustments" like Yahoo.

As for the game score, I think it is going to be closer than Rey thinks. I also believe many here think these are the 2010 Raiders and don't realize the change from Tom Cable to Hue Jackson as HC. The Raiders are a different team, and we'll all find out on Sunday if they've improved enough to beat the Texans. The Raiders have very talented players, they're just waiting to be molded into a cohesive unit. They came together nicely against the Jets, but had a set back against the Patriots, so who knows which team will show up.

I don't know that Tate is going to play. I'm hoping Ward can. We might be down to Foster & Ogbanaya.

But, since we've established Casey as a receiving threat, & it makes sense to see Casey & Foster/Ogbanaya in the back field at the same time, motioning Casey out to WR is going to open up a lot of opportunities.

When they try and stop the run, like against Shonn Green, they can be successful.
Shonn who?

By the way, I'm counting on some of those long misleading runs.....


a lot of them.

That is how the Texans will have to get them. Good thing for the Raiders, their team speed is such that they can often bring the runner down from behind. Yeah, the long runs still hurt, but they also get the opportunity to make the opponent settle for 3 points instead of the 7 they could have had.

Runs against the Raiders can go something like this: 1, -3, 15, 2, 3, 1, 12, 0, 1, 1, 36, 0, 0, 8, 4, 1 . . . So there are times they can stifle the defense, but there are times they give up the untimely long run that sustains a scoring drive. That, or they commit a stupid penalty.
