Final Thoughts

When asked about the tight end getting more touches Sunday, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said at his press conference Thursday, “Yeah, for sure. We’d like to see more touches for everybody, but especially the tight ends. More touches for Latavius [Murray]. The more the merrier.”

That quote right there lets me know that he agrees with the game plan so I’m looking forward to seeing if he comes through. Hearing what Ken Norton Jr. had to say at his makes it sound like he’s in the experimental stage of his tenure. He’s already experimented with blitzing and was successful with it so there’s something he knows will work.

Then of course, Woodson the ageless wonder, who he knows can shut down the tight end as tight ends have killed the Raiders for two-straight games. Mack at the Leo is an experiment that needs to end as well so he can go back to being a dominant OLB. The Raiders already have Smith, who’s better fitted for that position so they should move him there.

We will see on Sunday about the game plan, results and all, but if the Raiders want to win these are some key aspects they should focus on if they want to go 2-1 on the season with a big road victory over the Browns in Cleveland.
