    The Raiders! Que the bail bonds commercials...

    The Raiders are less... well... Raider-esque under Del Rio.

    Offense
    ...................................SD....................Oak
    Total.........................#1......................#28
    Pass..........................#1......................#28
    Rush........................#24.....................#31
    Defense
    ...................................SD....................Oak
    Total.........................#19......................#12
    Pass..........................#11......................#19
    Rush.........................#30......................#3

    Lets face it, as many argue stats are... well flawed. Is it any surprise that the Chargers land at #1 in passing, which measures yards. One could and should argue that it is the W's and L's that are a much better measurement.

    Oakland and San Diego are both sporting 2 wins. I am not surprised that a team that has Del Rio as a coach is doing well in Defense. The Chargers are going to find a way to make this one a nail biter most likely.

    The roster continues to be a M.A.S.H unit, and now we have to see if Allen can go. No word on if we should expect to get some OL players back.

    So what is your take. Feel free to shower the thread with Pessimism or Optimism as you see fit. This is a free fire zone.

    Negatrons, and Optimistic Primes welcome.

    They've had 2 weeks to prepare so it'll be close. Raiders will have some success running on our swiss cheese front 7 and takes shots down field hoping to get some big plays or calls from the refs.

    Offensively, just let Rivers do what he did this past game. Air it out on a really bad secondary and hope we come out on top.

    Going to be tough, they always are. Cooper will be locked down by Verrett, but Crabtree will have a field day with Flowers.

    Not to mention the possibility of both Weddle and Allen being out and the Raiders coming off a bye. They'll be ready that's for sure.

    Jack Del Rio is no strangers to the Chargers, but I looked up to see how his teams did against them.
    He has a losing record, 2 wins and 3 losses since 2003.
    2003 W; his 0-4 team got their first win of the season against the Bolts
    2004 L
    2007 W
    2010 L
    2011 L

    In one of those games I remember MGD knocking Lights Out on his arse. His teams typically play tough, I will give him that.

    Thinking on this the thing I would love to see fixed is the big play vulnerability.

    Really the last two games the D has played really good D for most of the game, but they give up big plays, Mike Vick scramble, Steeler TE pass catch to the 1 yard like, 87 yards to GB on 2 carries, etc...

    If the D can manage to stop that hemorrhaging, then the O failing to get 7 on most drives will be mitigated to a point.

    If anger is good motivation, the turds should not want to face the Chargers this week, bye or no bye...

    Chargers WR Keenan Allen has helmet and is warming up. First practice since leaving Packers game with groin injury.

    Michael Gehlken ‏@UTgehlken 4m4 minutes ago
    Chargers TE Antonio Gates not practicing today for 3rd straight day. If anyone can play without practice, it's him: http://utsd.us/1PLaCgx

    Tom Krasovic ‏@UTkrasovic 3m3 minutes ago
    Manti Te'o isn't practicing. Looks like Chargers rookie ILB Denzel Perryman will go against the Raiders in his second start for Te'o.

    Tom Krasovic ‏@UTkrasovic 8m8 minutes ago
    An animated Keenan Allen returned to practice Friday. Didn't finish Packers game five days ago due to hip injury.
