Love me some Larry. Wish he'd gotten that 1 SB ring.

I've spent the last 2 days studying Mike Leach's Air Raid offense.....It's amazing how flexible this offense is. I don't see how Kirk, Fitzy don't have great seasons if all this comes together.

Andy Reid has implemented plays off this Air Raid system, they are going to be fun to watch I'll tell you that.

I expect some 'growing pains' and some Jeckyll/Hyde transitions week to week, tbh. It wasn't pretty though.

Huge overreaction. If you liked him before a preseason game you should still like him after a preseason game.

The Cardinals aren't showing their offense. The bland offense isn't doing much. I'm not alarmed.

This X10, Kliff and Murray have stated they are not going to show the AIR RAID in pre-season. Not worried at all.

The O line is a problem though.

The o-line is a serious concern again. Aside, from that, criticism of last nights game is warranted, whether they were holding back on 'showing their offense or not'. 6 yards from 4 David Johnson carries is not what you want to see, ditto for 3/8 for 12 from Murray.

Its no excuse to give up on them but it was such a bad show last night I can't help but be concerned.

Call it over reaction but I dropped D. Johnson a spot after watching it.

Was in stands for Air Raid 2.0...Though they are (not showing much), Raiders were able to press, take away first read, while applying pressure. It would seem David Johnson will be needed early and often to set a tone and keep quicker NFL D's honest and... Isabella will be needed to stretch the field. "Still Early" but looked like they will need to tweak things for the Air Raid to take next step.

I didn't watch the game but I'd assume they were using a very vanilla offensive gameplan to better evaluate talent and not tip their hand for the regular season.
