The Raiders are as bad as everyone thinks. Face it our D is horrible at best. The coaches decision to sit Troy and Harrison thinking this was going to be a cakewalk backfired on them. It's unfortunate that with those two players out this Defense is HORRIBLE, not one leader on that whole side of the ball.

The thing is - everyone's calling the Raiders a lousy team. Their record doesn't necessary show how good that team actually is - the Raiders have upgrades which, as I said earlier, may end up giving them a chance at being a legitimate team as the season progresses. Carson seemed to be very much at ease with his offense.
We lost to a team that just played better when it mattered. It's not the end of the world.
