 Areas to Fix

Sparano had to really roll up his sleeves, get down, and get dirty to do this job because he had too many areas to fix. First, he had to clean up his own area, the offensive line as the running game was stalled and rookie quarterback Derek Carr is one of the most pressured quarterbacks in the NFL. And that’s part of the passing game, which also needs cleaning up while the Raiders don’t have Rod Streater, their best receiver.

Then there’s third down on both sides of the ball and along with the run defense that has no words to describe how bad it was. The Raiders weren’t good against the pass either because they were allowing quarterbacks to complete over 70 percent of their passes. All this means the Raiders can’t stop the run or pass and can’t run or pass, which adds up to the big mess of the Raiders getting blown out in games.
