    Reggie Bush will be a huge factor (the MVP of the game!) this Sunday: mark my word. :hi5:

    If the offense didn't self destruct in those 6 minutes before halftime last week, Bush was well on his way to a likely 100+ yard rushing game. Even with Thomas out, the running game needs to be the focal point of the offense early in the season. They need to ease Tannehill along slowly.

    Hmm, I'm actually thinking this is going to be Tanny's game.

    Bush is the very least of my worries. Like seriously last on the list. Everything else is what worries me. Only thing that concerns me is his durability but I think he finally got it together health wise.

    But yeah, I expect him to be awesome.

    They should feed him the ball early and often and then later, start to work the play action passing game. They also need to get Lane a couple of swing passes out of the backfield. He just runs over people!

    I actually would love to see Lane get a few carries. Not sayng a lot but a few. The guy was a beast in school. Some sceens to Lamar Smith could work too.

    Ozzy rules!!

    You guys have high hopes for bush against the raiders but this isn't the raiders run defense of last year, this year it's 100x better!!
    Defensive minded coach better defensive players and you get a stellar defense in calling it this year raiders will be a top 10 defensive team! Bush at the most will get 65 yds good luck getting past the front 7 on defense...

    Was very impressed with his rushing between the tackles in week one, Reggie is a consistent hard worker and we are lucky to have a character guy like him on this roster. I would like to see us counter the pass rush on Tanny a bit more by getting some screens out to Reg.

    It's nearly the same front 7 reggie raped last year and this defensive mind coach couldn't get to rivers and he had all the time in world.

    They didnt have Shaugnessey last year when we played them. He's a big part of their defense. They have 2 new LB's on the outside... I watched that monday night game, I was really impressed by Mile Burris the rookie they drafted last year- I was hoping we'd pick him up in the draft, he was one of my sleeper guys- I knew he was gonna be special- that kid can flat out ball, he's gonna be the next Clay Matthews. They did switch that defense since Al Davis died because he ran everything.

    That Raiders defense looked prety solid to me- the Chargers were in the redzone 5 times and the Raiders kept them out of the endzone 5 times and thats with River throwing to Gates and Floyd etc...

    We're gonna have to play our best game sunday- we have the talent to compete- we just have to put it all together on the same day

    Lamar Smith may be a step slow nowadays. Lamar Miller should still be fresh, however. Lol.

    Stop D Mac and the run game like the Chargers did they have a very hard time moving the ball no tight end threat and there receivers are banged up, home opener if we don't win this one after watching the Raiders look undisipline and no fire power threw the air dolphins r in for a long year . Pound them in the run game they got a big front 7 soo it won't be easy but stay with it work play action get Tannehill moving the pocket for open lanes to throw the ball use his acuraty on the run .. No turnovers !

    They are getting Denarious Moore back this week -

    I dont know about them not be able to move the ball

    Their first possession they started from their own 10 and moved it 70 yards down to the 25 of the Chargers before their WR fumble.. 2nd possession they started at their 30 and moved it 40 yards to the Chargers 30.. 4th possession they started at their own 10 and drove 85 yards to the Chargers 2 yard line.. So to say the Raiders cant move the ball would be incorrect

    We need to do what the Chargers did.. bring the CB's up.. show Palmer tight coverage then drop back when he snaps the ball to get it in zone.. it worked for the Chargers- Hopefully our coaches picked that up and will do the same thing

    No chance we jam the ball down their throats. In order to move the ball it will have to be done initially by throwing it

    The texans have a far better defense then the raiders and Reggie was shredding them until we got down big

    The Raiders are better than Houston at DT and MLB. Those positions set the tone at stopping the run.

    We got to be able to throw well tomorrow to win. Stall ball will not win.

    The Raiders have a very good front seven....they will stop the run first...then they are going to come after Tanny...Lets hope we can protect him.

    Funny to think of Bush as a character guy considering his NCAA status but in the NFL, in the big picture, he really is.

    Cushing is a top 3 MLB in the NFL. Rolando Mcclain isnt even top 20.

    My bad Cushing is indeed a MLB and sure McClain may not be better then him but it also didn't help that he didn't have the right coaches his first 2 years in the league but this year he has stepped up his game tremendously he's filling all the right gaps,pressuring the QB and shedding his blocks, he's on his way to being an elite MLB something raider fans always invisioned from him!

    Great re-set. I am blown about with almost 300 yards rushing. That is a good defense and the Fins O-line, TE's, FB's, backs AND coaching staff roughed them up.

    Color me impressed...great work and call by posters on this thread.

    Nice prediction. It would have been better if you left some stats. Anyone with a brain and intuitiveness would know this.

    Interesting. Before they faced us they had the leagues 2nd ranked run Defense. After? 24th . Thats one heck of a drop.
