    Way to set the tone for the game, and the season. Out coached, out played.
    Like I always say, starts at the top. Mularkey is in over his head, this isn't HS football.

    Y'all would be praising the decision if it worked. We took a chance and forced a rookie in his opener to make a heads up play. The decision is not what lost us the game. I don't fault Mularkey that much for trying to make a spark. There are plenty of other things to fault him for.

    We need a spark for the first play of the season? If that's the case he's failed as a HC already. Still a stupid decision even if we get the ball.

    It didn't, but it may have cost us 4 points by giving up 25+ yards of field position. That means we're playing for the tie with that last drive instead of a hope and a prayer.

    My 2 cents. Offense and Defense looked good. Coaching and Special Teams not so much, those 2 cost us the game.
    Very pleasantly surprised by the Defense today.

    I didn't have a problem with it. If we recovered and drove down field, it looks genius.

    We all knew the Raiders offense would have a field day against our piss poor defense.

    This was a good decision to try and steal a possession.

    Let's not act like this was the sole reason why we got beat.

    We didn't lose because of our Defense. That "opening" kick off was just as bad as that raynard kickoff kneel down for a safety from a few years back.

    How so?

    We knew going into this game it was going to be a shootout. There was no way in hell we were going to stop the Raiders offense.

    That onside never put us in the hole like some people would think. Had they got the ball at the 25, they were still going to drive down the field no matter what.

    Blame the former Raiders player, Trawick for running into the kicker that gave them 3 easy points.
