That is the only thing the organization and the fans can do about this low scoring defensive battle at O.co Stadium. About the only good thing that came out of this game is that the defense looked pretty solid, and that McFadden didn't injure himself. That should be the absolute number one priority for this coaching staff; keep the carries for McFadden at a minimum, or you can just start preparing yourself for another McFadden injury plagued season. The next priority would be to stop the penalties, but that is a whole other story (should be one since we have led the league in penalties for the past decade). However, it is for certain though that when McFadden is healthy and running well, he is considered one of if not the best running back in the league. His health and offensive talent is going to be the biggest catalyst if the Raiders want to score touchdowns and win games.
Offensive execution is going to be the name of the game in the next preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. Arizona's offense is not something to get scared about, but their defense is quite decent and that is something to worry about especially if you don't want to get shutout in consecutive games.
One more thing to make light of....Did anyone notice that Reggie McKenzie had a twin brother? Talk about spot on match, I definitely could not tell which was which.
Will be back later this week to discuss any and all further info regarding the Raiders and their upcoming game in Arizona against the Cardinals.
