    I don't think this is any indication of how the passing game will be in the regular season. IMO, we will be much better off. Our running game was basically non-existent while Vince was in. The Raiders have a very strong secondary as it is, and when they know a pass is coming on 1st down or 2nd down, they are all over it. The o-line got manhandled by the Raiders defensive line pass rushing Vince. They got the count down and got a perfect jump everytime. Vince basically had someone in his face all night and he was throwing into tight coverage because their secondary didn't have to worry about the run at all. When we get a good mix of runs/PAs in then our offense will be much better. BTW, Lavelle Hawkins is a hoss. ;)

    They're the Raiders, Al Davis is so senile they convinced him it was regular season and tried to look good.

    even if they brought the blitz every play, it should have made it a little easier for recievers to get open. I dont know if it was an off night or if Vince sucks but hopefully the kinks will be worked out. I still have faith, he shows poise, its just that he doesn't look comfortable.

    The Raiders were missing a few in their secondary Friday night. As far as I could tell, it was straight up man-to-man.

    The only thing that really worries me is that Huff play when it was almost picked off. Vince should of looked the safety off and kept him in the middle of the field, then glanced at scaife and made the throw.

    He followed Scaife the hole time and Huff read him like a book. Thats a rookie error.

    I think this is a good option of defending the pass against the Titans... The Raiders could have been confident that the Titan recievers can't beat their DB's in man... I think we will see this happen quite often this year unless VY makes them pay with his legs when they blitz...

    Young didn't play great but those WRs need to learn to come back and fight for the ball

    he probably also needs to let the ball out a little quicker but that'll come. his reads seem to be good though.

    What's bad is that the Raiders didn't have their #1 and 2 corners.
