Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Nasty ofensive show by the Raiders and Cowboys Monday night. Both units appear to have a lot of work to do.

I haven't watched the whole game yet, but there were 3 bright spots on offense in the first quarter and a half for the Raiders -- young widerout, Streater, who physically reminded me a bit of the old Indy receiver who came to prominence with Peyton Manning, can't think of his name. Another bright spot was Darren McFadden. If this guy stays healthy for the whole year, he will be the best running back in the league. Last but not least, Carson Palmer's arm strength (which had been the subject of much debate last season) looked good in overthrowing his receiver on an up route (and getting intercepted ).

Looking like a pencil necked geek shouldn't prevent Dennis Allen from doing a good job coaching but it sure doesn't fill me with confidence.
