Greg Knapp Thinks Raiders Run Game is Progressing

Let Greg Knapp tell it and he’d likely think that one person in North Korea getting a work promotion equates to the entire nation progressing towards a form of government that isn’t more oppressive than his play calling.

Knapp somehow has it in his head that Sunday’s miserable loss in Denver showed real progress in the Raiders woeful run game.

“I thought we made good strides last week.”

OK…and Chick-Fil-A’s sudden about-face on keeping politics and fast food separate must also mean our society is progressing towards Utopia by Knapp standards.

Honestly, Greg Knapp is more clueless than Lolo Jones and more delusional than Katie Holmes when Tom Cruise popped the question.

I told you yesterday Knapp bashing is an official pastime of Raider Nation and dude keeps adding more fuel to the fire. For the record the Raiders ran for a grand total of 56 yards during the 31-point loss in Denver. If that’s progress then what does Knapp have to say of how well the running game looked against Pittsburgh the week previous? That must have been a step back by Knapp standards. Now that the Raiders are back to being the worst rushing team in the league things are progressing according to the Knappster.

Great! This guy must also have volcano insurance.

I hate to keep beating this dead horse but its impossible not to when you look at all the facts. For the last two years the Raiders have been among the best running teams in the league. That’s both with and without Darren McFadden and behind a makeshift line.

And you mean to tell me with a healthy McFadden, a line that had an entire offseason program to learn the new scheme and four weeks of actual games that this team still can’t run the ball!

If after the bye week the Raiders are still trying to force the square peg that is the zone blocking scheme into the round hole that is what this line and McFadden do best (power, downhill rushing) then it will be time to orchestrate an official boycott. The last time McFadden looked this useless was the last time Knapp was calling plays in Oakland. Coincidence?
