Raiders Will Provide A Litmus Test

Jets did what they should have today.  They beat one of the worst teams in the league.  The Darnold looked good, the offensive line with Compton and Lewis appeared to be improved.  TE Griffin and CB Austin are nice surprises and look to be future contributors.  

The apparent step forward may just be a mirage.  A product of a struggling team looking well against an even worse team...

The Raiders will be a bona fied litmus test for the Jets...

Anyone care to offer predictions for how that one will go ???

And what litmus test did beating the Cowboys give fans

The Cowboys without Amari Cooper, Tyron Smith, and Randall Cobb. 
 

The Jets with every LB out.  With Enunwa and Herndon out.  KO, out.  Others out.  No excuse

I guess Gruden didn't want it to be a blowout against the winless bengals. 

Every win has been a close one score game.  Just they way Grudrn drew them up I guess

Keep talking nonsense.   Just because you keep repeating the same lie, means it’s going to change anything - make it true .    Another loss to the Raiders.

What was the team that destroyed the Jets recently in the middle of the field.    Well it’s going to be much worse with the Raiders personnel.    Have ORoy RBs Josh Jacobs . Stud Rookie Fb Alec Ingold.  When you see either Rb Jalen Richard or Deandre Washington In the backfield there is a good chance they are coming in to be mismatches in the passing game.

They have three Tes that are very unique- all can both block and catch .  ( Waller, Moreau , and Carrier) They can play all three Te’s at once.   Two Te’s formations with Waller, and Moreau  , with D Carrier as  h-back . ( very tough matchup problems)       While they don’t have a true number 1 Wr , they have nice array of Wrs. ( Tyrell Williams6’4 205 , Zay Jones , Hunter Renfrow - becomes bigger part of the offense every week ( third down specialist) M Ateman 6’4 220 - big physical Wr who very good run blocker also) 

Raiders might have DRoy also Maxx Crosby seriously in the running to win that award too.( kids coming on every week- has chance to fatten up on the Jets  offense line) 

Why is it that the Raiders didn’t destroy the Bengals, at home?  Haven’t destroyed anyone all year?  Not one single team, not even a winless 0-8 Bengals team?  I mean they’re great at every position, yet every win is a 1 score or less win.

JUST WIN BABY  - a great man once coin that expression.   You don’t get extra credit for style points.   All you want to do is keep putting wins together- any way you have to do it.     You get enough wins , and you qualify for the playoffs.( remember what that is- been a longtime).

The Raiders could be in sole possession of first place in the AFC West after tonight.   The Raiders will be a playoff team this year.    Are they serious contenders for a Super Bowl.   Probably not, but give Mayock one more draft( 5 picks in the first 90 picks)  + 7th most cap space( last time it was posted) , and let these young players on both side gain some valuable experience.     The greatness in the Raiders is it’s future. ( Mayock and Gruden are building something special) 

Raiders have the OROY = Josh Jacobs.  Mad Maxx Crosby in the running for DROY.

And winning close games while nice doesnt prove the talent you spew on about.  

No matter how you skirt over what I said.  Theyre a mediocre team, nothing more.

Do you know the difference between a veteran roster, versus a very young inexperienced roster .   This was a total rebuild job Gruden elected to do.( his second season)   The betting line was 6 win season for the Raiders.       The Raiders draft class has exceeded everyone expectations , as they really hit on home run on most of these picks.   ( speading up the rebuild process) .

If you understand J Gruden conservative  game plan - the games are usually going to be close.   It’s the way they play.   They are going to run the football against anyone.  ( the reason they are top three on third downs is because they don’t have that many third and longs.    They eat up a lot of time of possession .
They have a lot of young talent everywhere on defense, but they are trying to break it in at very important positions.  Cb for example,   Rookie second round Trayvon Mullen has assumed a starting position.( going to be a good one but only his third start .Rookie   Isaiah Johnson 4th round is just coming back from face fracture  experience in third play in the first preseason game- might eventually be better than Mullens , but is much rawer than Mullens too. ( his playing time should start to increase) K Nixon Eanother rookie is starting to get more minutes.       When you are trying to break in that many young players at the same time , your going to experience growing pains.  It’s a fine balance trying to win games, and trying to develop these young players at the same time.

Raiders make the playoffs , and it’s a great year. 
 

Do I know what?  

Excuses now for why the games are close?  It's Grudens coaching?  The Raiders were losing at home to the bengals because that's the way he coaches?  What nonsense.  He coaches conservatively because he has to.  The talent isn't close to what you think it is.  The talent everywhere, pro bowlers all, Etc nonsense is just that.  They're better, they're not have a great year. They're an average team right now, don't over rate them.  Enjoy the team, stop with the over the top nonsense

Sam “ Wheeler” Darnold.   Any Met fan can tell you what that means.   Zack Wheeler when the season over - can look a lot different with the pressure off.    The key is playing well when it still matters, and not when the season is over with.

Nonsense on every level.

Watch out for Dion Jordan  6 ‘ 6 275 -  had one sack last week in very limited snaps  , despite being very rusty .  ( that’s missing 10 weeks serving a suspension) .   Raiders just signed him last week , but he’s in tremendous shape.   ( the guy who I think might explode this Sunday) .

Why do you feel the need to add height and weight numbers as if makes a difference?  Every player on the Raiders is physically gifted and a monster yet the end of the season ends the same.
