Just finished watching it. What the hell can you say? That was the worst performance from an NFL team I’ve seen this season and for a long time. Never have I seen so many fundamentals totally botched. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy and the Niners were alright but the Raiders were a complete sh*tshow. 

I wont be jumping on the Nick Mullins train, he performed quite well, as well as you could ask for. But Paul Guenther the Raiders DC should have just marched up to Mullins before the game and handed him his playbook. They made it so EASY for him. I will say that Mullins looked alright with the play action but again it was just crappy coverage and failing to pick up Kittle on an out route.

Good to win but Raiders hang your heads in shame.

Very good get. 3rd down machine. 

Yeah. I'm not saying he won't produce. Just worried about age, and the fact Eagles got him to effectively just make playoffs. They'll be doing a mini-rebuild over the next few years and won't be in the superbowl this year.

A fair assumption. I think it will pay off. Think he’d be good in a mentoring capacity as well and teaching young receivers how to run after the catch. 

I’m still surprised with what the Packers gave away, Ted Thompson has the runs on the board but Clinton-Dix makes no sense.

He's a FA after this season. So we get him for 2 months.

Dayum. Brees takes down the biggest baddest team in the comp. NFC just got even more interesting.

Certainly did, absolute smoker of a game that one. High powered offenses to the max. Anyone remember the Joe Horn cell phone celebration? It happened again with Michael Thomas, same stadium, same goalposts..

Fight really hard to get to 17-17 with Rodgers marching the team down the field and then Jones fumbles - another costly error.  Not good enough.  Of course New England take advantage as they do and it's game over.  The Pats are just too professional. 

Unless the Packers can somehow turn things around the only real issue for the Vikes now are the Bears - and they are still yet to play each other.  The Lions are out of it.

Been saying it for weeks, our D is super overrated in plays, so many broken tackles and we can’t stop the run.

wade has stated numerous times he doesn’t rate the run as much, but stuff me if it isn’t killing us.

Hekkers non 1st down on fake FG was def a 1st down. After that, the saints put on 21 points very very quickly. Donald and scaffold give away PFouls that we’re selfish and stupid.

Brees is a star, Kamara is amazing, Goff and Woods were exceptional, our O was mostly good.

Suh and Donald got owned, Fowlers... did he even play? Peters shows little each week, I th8nk our D believe the hype and don’t work hard enough and who ever is our tackling coach should be fired.

 

don get me wrong, we played well and I’m stoked to be 8-1 but to be champions we need to be better, much better. We outlasted the Vikings and Packers and beaten by saints, but got owned on D by all three teams, if packers took their chances first half last week we possibly lose that too.

Got Seattle then chiefs before the bye. Gotta win at l east one if not both to try and maintain home field for playoffs.

I thought the Saints were a good bet today, rams haven't impressed the last couple of weeks just scraping past Denver and Green Bay. Let's see if they can regroup for the 2nd half of the season, nothing worse than being October champions.

Eagles had the same record at the same stage last year.

I get what you're saying, but there's no such thing as a perfect squad. You can point the finger at less than great run D, or OL not being as good as they need to be, but bottom line you're better than most teams in that many areas it's ridiculous.

Saints are just a good side. Falcons last year were a good side, and Eagles only just pipped them. I feel like if you cop them again, the result could easily swing back the other way.

I think the frustration stems from we had a great D for years so I’m use to them making those tackles etc, and that is the problem it’s things that should be easily fixed. I reckon we stuck the first tackle less than 50% of the time.

TBH Macca, I thought the horrendous penalty for hitting the kicker was completely wrong. No way was that worth more than a 5yrd penalty, but also tbh if you have the. At 4/21, don’t go near the kicker!!!

Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
