View Full Version : OT - Raiders, always a good laugh

11-02-2009, 03:13 PM
After a great red zone stop forced a Chargers field goal, JaMarcus Russell got the ball down eight with 4:43 to go. Raiders drove it to San Diego's 44 yard line when the 2 minute warning hit.

What followed nicely encapsulated the Raiders season.

First down: Russell is sacked and fumbles, but the Raiders recover.

2nd-and-23: False start on the Raiders

2nd-and-28: Russell is sacked again. (By Shawne Merriman.) On the play, two Raiders wide receivers ran into each other and both fell down on the play. Seriously, you have to see this.

3rd-and-31: 11-yard pass to Zach Miller

4th-and-20: Russell throws to Johnnie Lee Higgins over the middle. The Raiders have a pretty good looking hook and ladder set up, but Higgins forgets to catch the ball first, instead attempting a touch pass like in basketball.

Game over.

I have to see the replay of the two Raider WR's running into each other. I hope Mangina adds that play to the Browns playbook... :lol:

they showed it on the ESPN Not top 10.. was funny as hell!
first they showed the celtics throwing a pick in order to set up a nice shot. then they said "this is how the raiders throw a pick"
