Baker Mayfield to make first start vs Raiders in Oakland , reminds Jon Gruden of hace 1 Semana, 6 Días Karma: 0
Last Thursday Oakland Raiders Womens Hoodie night, Baker Mayfield entered the lineup for the Browns for the first time and captivated a primetime national audience. The number one overall pick came in for the injured Tyrod Taylor an ressurected a Browns offense that was floundering against the Jets. The exciting rookie led the Browns to their first win in two years. In the process he ignited Baker mania in Cleveland and setting the stage for him to make his first career start in Oakland this Sunday.The Raiders will have his hands full with Mayfield. With just that half of football of NFL tape along with a lot of highly successful college tape, earning him the 2017 Heisman Trophy. Gruden knows what he’s up against.“He just makes a lot of plays when nothing’s there. He makes plays when there is something there, the pocket it is clean, he can hit the open receivers,” Gruden said of Mayfield. Gruden likes his ‘Grinders’ and Mayfield has that in him. So much so that he invoked the name of a gritty quarterback who played under Gruden for his final two seasons in Tampa.“He has a lot of Jeff Garcia in him,” Gruden said of Mayfield. “He dives for first downs, he’ll extend plays. He’s got a really good competitive spirit about him. I love the way he plays. I know he’ll be really excited for his first career start. We’ve got to do a great job giving him some looks and getting some pressure on him.”Garcia earned his way into the NFL at the age of 29 after several years in the CFL. Garcia would play 11 seasons in the NFL, making four Pro Bowls. His final Pro Bowl coming under Gruden at the age of 37. So, that’s a hell of a compliment to Mayfield coming from Gruden.Even though Garcia hasn’t played in the NFL since 2009 — while Derek Carr was still in high school — he made the same comparison as his head coach. Though he swears he wasn’t copying him.“He reminds me of Jeff Garcia,” Carr said of Mayfield. “Just very athletic, very competitive, can make all the throws kind of a thing. He’s a really good player and I think the sky’s the limit for him. As long as he keeps his head down and keeps working, I think that he can do a lot of great things for their organization.”Coming out of college, Mayfield was compared a lot former Browns top pick Johnny Manziel Womens Customized Oakland Raiders Jerseys , who was selected 14 spots ahead of Carr in the 2014 draft. Mayfield appears at this point to have the positive traits of Manziel without all the negative off the field traits.Make no mistake, Manziel was highly talented. He won a Heisman Trophy too. And Gruden sure liked him coming out of college. Mayfield will bring those abilities and excitement to Oakland on a team that Gruden noted could easily be 3-0 as opposed to 1-1-1 if they had a decent kicker the first two weeks. This is a very different Browns team from last season, that’s for sure. And Baker Mayfield’s presence takes them to another level.Follow @LeviDamienRaiders week three Ballers & Busters vs Dolphins It’s getting pretty redundant in Silver & Black these days. It’s a bit of a task to come up with a new way to say late game collapse for the third straight week. The makings of them are a bit different, but the end result is the same.The Raiders start fast, scoring on their opening possession, take a lead into the third quarter, watch the pieces start to come off in the third quarter, and the whole thing fall apart completely in the fourth. Rinse and repeat.As each week, there are differences in the details as well as who steps up and who gives the game away. So, let’s get to that.BallersJordy NelsonI guess it was just his turn. The other two top Raiders receivers each had big games in the first two games, and Nelson was next in line. Nelson had 3 catches for 139 yards and a touchdown on the first two possessions alone. His first catch came on a slant about 15 yards out, which he caught in stride and made it 61 yards before being caught from behind. Two plays later, Carr went back to Jordy for the touchdown from 12 yards out.The second drive, he got behind his defender and Carr found him again. This time Jordy made it 66 yards to the 8-yard-line before being caught from behind. Unfortunately they were unable to finish that one off with a score, going for it on 4th and goal at the one with Keith Smith unable to punch it in. It’s quite a shame to have those two big catches , neither of which were for touchdowns, and one didn’t result in a score at all. Nelson did everything except have the speed he needed to go the distance. In both instances he had a good five yards on his defender when he caught the ball. And in both instances, he was chased down. But not before he picked up over 60 yards.Jordy would add a 12-yard catch to lead out their scoring drive at the end of the second quarter as well as a 16-yard catch late in the fourth quarter on what should have been a scoring drive. He finished with 6 catches on 8 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown.Marshawn LynchJordy Nelson had the big plays early, but it was Marshawn that was the gears that kept things going the rest of the game. And he did it against a stout Dolphins defensive line.On their second scoring drive of the game, he had runs of 5, 4, 5, 1 (on third and one), and 5 (on first and goal from the 7-yard-line). If the Raiders were smart they would have given it to him again on second and/or third and goal from the 2-yard-line. But they didn’t. And the result was settling for a field goal.The first drive of the third quarter he had an 8-yard catch, slipped on a 2-yard run, a 5-yard first down run, anda 7-yard run. This time they wised up at least enough to give it to Marshawn on 3rd and goal at the one foot mark and he dove over the line for the score to give the Raiders a 17-7 lead.Down 21-17 late in the fourth quarter, the Raiders drove into the red zone. Despite the late game in the hot and humid Miami, Marshawn went full on Beast Mode, catching a short pass and breaking several tackles before being brought down after picking up 14 yards.Marshawn finished with 86 yards of offense (64 rushing) on 22 touches with a touchdown. And every yard he picked up was hard fought right until the end. He doesn’t have quit in him. After the game Oakland Raiders T-Shirt , he spoke to us, and talked about how hot and muggy it was out there鈥?while wearing a beanie.Leon HallThe first defensive play of the game for the Raiders, Hall had a run stuff tackle out left to help send the Dolphins offense off the field with a three-and-out to start the game. The following drive, he made the tackle short of the sticks on third down to force a punt. The next play he was in the game, he was held to draw a penalty and lead out another three-and-out. Three consecutive drives to start the game that Hall was a major factor in stalling drives.He was also not among those victimized on any of the Dolphins four touchdowns. He did, however, end the first drive of the fourth quarter by shooting in on the blitz on third down and batting down the pass attempt. It was one of just two drives the Dolphins had in the second half that didn’t result in a touchdown.Clinton McDonaldI think I can safely say there is an upgraded number 97 in Oakland. In just his second game with the Raiders, McDonald has emerged as the Raiders best interior defensive lineman.With the Dolphins down 7-0, they got the ball early in the second quarter. On both of the first two plays, McDonald made the run stuff at the line. What should have been a three-and-out was ripped from the Raiders because of one of those bullshit roughing the passer penalties on Maurice Hurst. The complete ridiculous nonsense was offsetting to allow the Dolphins to replay the down. The next play, the Dolphins completed a 34-yard touchdown pass to tie it up at 7-7.After the Raiders re-took the lead 10-7 late in the second quarter, McDonald slammed the door with a sack on Ryan Tannehill and a nine-yard loss. It was the Raiders only sack of the day. McDonald tied with Leon Hall for second on the team with 3 combined tackles (2 solo).Honorable MentionDoug Martin – His best outing as a Raider with 43 yards on 9 carries (4.8 ypc) and his best run that went for 15 yards to put the Raiders in scoring position late in the 4th quarter, followed by a 6-yard run that set them up in the red zone.Arden Key – It’s becoming clear he is pretty much all they got in terms of pass rush. He had two QB hits in the game. One on third down to force a punt. He even had a couple run stops, which is good to see from the pure pass rusher.Continue to the Busters
