So, the Nicky Mullens Experience continues. I’m glad because he deserves it. He hit 8 different pass catchers, and did his job. Yeah, it was the Raiders, but the Beater didn’t exactly light up the Cards. The Beater has always done just enough to lose, so we need to see if Mullens can continue his roll.
And we need to see if the problem lies with the QB, or the signal-caller. Shanny himself has some major issues with closing out games, so we need to determine if Mullens gives Shanny a better opportunity to win. And if the problem lies with Kyle to some extent.
Weird we go from Thursday to Monday, so we’ve had a mini-bye followed by our real bye after the Giants Monday night game. That’s a lot of time off. Yeah, draft position is key, but again, we need to focus on getting better, and let the draft chips fall where they may. We have two winnable games coming up, and the next five games are within the realm of reachable. Providing Mullens can get rolling.
Gruden can piss away what remains of his Oakland goodwill and build for the 2020 season as he thinks he must, but iIf I was a Raider fan, I’d be furious. I also wouldn’t trust Gruden with those 3 first round picks next year. I’d shit-can his ass before he gets there.
