Paul & Kate: More no-huddle? Is McFadden the same back?
Paul and Kate talk about the Raiders using the no-huddle offense more as a surprise, break down Darren McFadden's struggles, and look ahead to Kansas City.
We enjoy it it's just hearing my dad is out as today you know patriots' time to sit on it kind of watch that -- with his players so. I needed to -- I'll let me how to talk the about all as the that you filed line on unseat California com with Carson Palmer and the no huddle offense. And I mean I think we saw how leads to success in this game and we taxed at Salant it is going to be more out of the -- -- the plane went toward caddies the plane now. Yeah I think it's one of those things where as as Carson talked about yesterday -- a curve ball it's one of those things where you can really rely on -- too heavily because then the other team. Game plans for an and it's not surprisingly more so than you wanna pull out as a surprise and and shop the other team within a little bit so it's those things where you can't really. Go to the well too often just you have to kind of pick your spots within them and Carson said it himself last night in and Dennis Allen just said to us. But there's no doubt about it that it jumps on that offense the second half. And another thing that I was very deceiving yes that's about today -- is Darren McFadden and the fact that. Is -- the thing that we saw last year and your opinion is here is this as an offense that we're not theme in the numbers is what they weren't last year how are you reading that. Well it's weird because when you you stats you know Richard Seymour said the stats are for losers but also. Your record says what you are in and stats can't really hide from stats and and he's not. Getting the same success running the ball as it did last year before he was injured when he looked like a legitimate MVP candidate for the entire -- Is that because he's not running as hard is that because this team doesn't fit him I think it's the latter -- one of the things I wondered about coming into the season. Was -- really have all that much success behind the zone blocking scheme his rookie year in his second year. But he really excel behind the power blocking scheme well even Dennis Allen -- a little bit that there incorporating a little bit more that our scheme and and if you can keep banging your head against the wall and eventually you wonder if the wall is gonna finally cracked you're gonna have space to run they're not. I'm not questioning whether Democrat is the same -- obviously is but he's obviously not having the same success that he did have a year ago. And it lastly real quick one think you touched on also was the fact that we saw the Raiders had great success after their -- -- -- to get it but a great game in Atlanta. Did you see Jacksonville come in very prepared for the Raiders after their bye week. And now Kansas City has a bye week so how did the Raiders claim for that given that -- heavily and oh yeah the deal with the different quarterbacks in. Yeah I think what they do they just. Concentrate on what they can control and that's themselves and of course they get the film and they're gonna scheme for for Brady Quinn and NNI arrest in Kansas City Chiefs team. But when you have a rivalry game and she's at all that's about the winning just go out there you strap it up and get eleven helmets flying the ball on both sides of the ball -- -- -- the Raiders do is. They just ignored and they go out there playing and they get the bad taste out of the mouth from Atlanta. And the bad taste out of a win from Jacksonville and as Carson Palmer insults that he take an ugly win over pretty loss any day.
