    Raidas are cursed. And outcoached. C’mon, really. Our long snapper goes down on a freak play and that becomes the difference maker in the game? Really. Whodathunkit? However, how many times are you gonna march that high school long snapper out there to f#*k things up? You’ve got two competent pro centers on your team who snap into the shotgun every day. At least they can get the MF’r airborne! And when their defense is dedicating five guys to stopping DMc, do you think you might want to go just a little deeper into the playbook? CP3 played very well. Once again he is throwing to guys with whom he hasn’t had many reps. SD was simply smarter. They took away as best they could the few options the Raiders felt like we could rely on. On the other hand, our defense was better than their offense, and our offense was better than their defense. Our special teams sucked, as always…. Just think of how many points we would give up thanks to special teams if they didn’t move the kickoff up 5 yards.
