The Chicago Bears were unable to hold their own against the Cincinnati Bengals, losing 21-10, where as the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers played out the highest scoring game of Week 3, with the Eagles coming out on top 39-26.
“This has been more than a home to me”, Moore tweeted Friday.
Before the trade was announced, some were throwing out wild speculation about Moore’s future with the team, suggesting some sudden character issue.
In Moore’s two seasons on the field for the Raiders, he started 22 games.
A decision on that will come soon.
Oakland misplaced beginning proper deal with Menelik Watson for the season, however the Raiders have remained usually wholesome within the offseason. The group that was out there struggled mightily and couldn’t have provided the coaching staff any confidence about the depth.
Schneider’s real work began the minute the game ended as the Seahawks – as all National Football League teams – must now cut their roster from 75 to the regular-season limit of 53 by Saturday at 1 p.m. Pacific time.
Another point of emphasis for Seattle is continuing to flesh out the backup running back situation. Derek Carr completed 18 of 34 passes for 213 yards while Matt McGloin added 114 yards and one touchdown in 11 of 15 passes.
That said, the Raiders seemed to have already made that decision by giving McGloin more looks in the last two preseason games. A staple of the Raiders ineffective defense over the last two years, and a fan favorite, Moore is in Del Rio’s doghouse. Lockett has proven in preseason as a rookie he can make an impact on offense and special teams so he should get a chance to play with the 1’s during the season.
The pass also might have helped the case of Daniels, who was moved to receiver in the spring after playing his entire career at quarterback.
Perhaps the biggest sign of why Hayden remains a starter was displayed on the first series of the game.
Every time Matt McGloin steps on the field, good things happen for the Oakland Raiders.
After having a 103-yard kickoff return and 67-yard punt return for touchdowns earlier in the preseason, Lockett gave Oakland cornerback Keith McGill a brief hesitation, then sprinted free, catching the only pass thrown by Wilson. Then 4:56 into the third quarter Rod Streater beat Marcus Burley on a 28-yard TD to get the Raiders within three. Honestly, (quarterbacks coach) Carl Smith has been saying the whole time that B.J. would be able to do that for us if we put him in the game and let him play like that, and he was right.
