AP Pro32 comments about Raiders
NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Oakland Raiders by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
OAKLAND RAIDERS (30)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) - Didn't think it would look like this.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 31) - Hard to win when your defense is getting regularly shredded.
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 31) - This defense is very hard to watch.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 31) - Will Dennis Allen be a one-and-done? Not like the Raiders haven't pulled the plug early before. Let's see if Mark Davis is like father Al when it comes to impatience with losing coaches.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 27) - The Raiders have not sacked any quarterbacks in the last two games. Their 11 sacks are the fewest in the league.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 29) - That Black Hole in Oakland is not in the stands; it's in the middle of the Raiders' defense. Mark Davis should be "embarrassed" for the fans.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) - The resurgent Bengals might drop 50 on these frauds.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 30) - A paper thin roster, a defense that struggles a fullback at the running back spot because of injuries and the results are predictable. Everyone from the owner on down has to have some patience.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 31) - The Raiders turnaround has a long way to go.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 30) - The Raiders have surrendered an average of 45 points and 439 yards over the past three losses.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 28) - The Raiders defense is the best friend of every offense with a league-high 322 points allowed. Every offense except the Raiders offense, that is.
