Raiders Hit Rock Bottom In 20-17 Loss To Browns


This will be the shortest game recap I’ve ever written during my tenure here at JBB. Those that are expecting some snap by snap analysis of what happened in Oakland this Sunday should have watched the game.

Today’s pathetic, uninspired and unmotivated effort told us all we need to know about this team.

When Dennis Allen needed a win he failed to get it. When the Raiders were facing a team that hasn’t won on the road since Kim Kardashian was married and divorced yet still can’t get a W it is officially time to move on.

I have never been one to call for a grown man to lose his job. Go ahead. Look up every article I’ve ever written on the Raiders. Not once have I ever called for a man’s job.

That said…

Dennis Allen…

It’s time to go. Pack your things and kindly exit the East Bay. If this is what we can expect from your Raiders then I’d sooner root for a Pop Warner team. Losing is one thing. Playing with no heart, pride or any sense of what it means to be a Raider is unforgiveable. I’ve seen Raider teams with worse records. I’ve never seen a Raider team this bad.

I’m tired of the excuses from Reggie McKenzie. He knew what he was getting into before taking this gig. If it’s too much to handle then step aside and let someone else get in.

And to think I was worried about how the Raiders would defend Trent Richardson. Turns out it was 50-year-old rookie QB Brandon Weeden we should have been afraid of all along.

Leave it to the Raiders to make Weeden look like Dan Marino today. And leave it to Carson Palmer to again post meaningless numbers during inconsequential portions of the game. When Palmer had a chance to get Oakland back into contention today he did what he always does in the clutch – choke.

All of you Palmer apologists out there can miss me with your tired arguments.  I could care less what kind of numbers a guy puts up. If you can’t trust your QB in critical moments then he’s worthless.

Thanks for nothing.

McKenzie, Coach Allen and his entire staff continue to make excuse after excuse. Please take a hike.

Thanks for nothing.

If this isn’t rock bottom then I’m afraid of what is coming next.
