Raiders coloration commentator Lincoln Kennedy might have an reply for why the Raiders offense has fallen off a cliff in the next 50 percent of the season.
Probably the difficulty is that opposing defenses have seen as well much of what the Raiders keep likely back again to on offense. Chiefs defenders hinted at the thought a several months ago and Kennedy experienced something related to say all through an physical appearance on the Likely Deep podcast (with Luke Straub and Larry Marbley) this week.
“This is why I’m conflicted,” Kennedy stated Monday on the Going Deep podcast. “It’s element program, and it is also portion frame of mind and participant. They both of those get equivalent blame. But the bottom line is that our offense is incredibly predictable. They run a play. If it performs all they do 2-3 performs later is they flip it and operate it the other way. Are you kidding me? Are we playing Madden right here?”
“You want to go back to that Kansas Metropolis security decide on-six,” Kennedy additional. “They ran the exact participate in the week prior to. Threw it to the exact put. Threw it to Tyrell Williams and acquired a initially down the 7 days prior to. You don’t feel these fellas enjoy film?”
If accurate, a predictable offense would offer you just one of the much better explanations for the offensive struggles under Gruden in the second half of video games. Undoubtedly Carr has input into what the offense is functioning, but prior to Gruden’s arrival, Carr tended to participate in much better in the 2nd 50 percent of video games. In simple fact, that was the knock on him below Bill Musgrave: slow commences.
Regardless of what the situation, Gruden is likely to require to determine it out before long. $one hundred million deal or not, Raiders proprietor Mark Davis isn’t heading to accept getting rid of in Las Vegas at any price.
