OAKLAND (CBS 5) - It's official. If the Oakland Raiders lose the division it's their own fault. Their defense stepped UP instead of being stepped ON. Their offense is suddenly balanced with a pro bowl quarterback even without their MVP running back. Six sacks from the D and the kitchen sink proved Oakland can handle an elite QB. Here's my take.
Carson Palmer: When Baron Davis walked onto the court with the Warriors, you KNEW they had a chance to win. Same with Palmer. He has the IT in it. Draft picks? I don't know. But, man, this guy is damn good.
Michael Bush: Robin had a career day when Batman stayed in the cave.
Kamerion Wimbley: Did someone say career day? Four sacks total, but his first half sent Phillip Rivers a message. "You can't run your way out of this like Tebow."
Vincent Jackson: Should take Ryan Leaf's old locker.
Denarius "give me" Moore
Hue Jackson: If you blame him for the penalties, you gotta love him for stopping the penalties. But Hue, keep the rag in the pocket until you see the replay.
Jacoby Ford: Uh oh
Unknown MVP: Stefen Wisniewski
Worst career move: Another playoff-less year for Takeo.
Philip Rivers: stop changing all those diapers, for crying out loud!
See you on TV.
