After watching both preseason about 4 times with my comcast dvr I've come to the conclusion we are are in trouble with our receiving corp this year , last year we had the same receivers and they looked like they were coming to there own but the only reason they looked good is because of Mike Martz with his five receiver formation running all over the place someone would always get open. Josh Morgan is OK but if u watch him against an average corner its hard for him to get separation making it hard for the QB to get rid of the ball causing sacks , Shaun Hill would try to get Morgan the ball but he wouldn't get open, the 2 times he caught the ball one from Alex and one from Shaun were pure luck. Michael Spurlock all the hype about him i haven't seen any wow's from him WHERE IS THE TAZER , Dziggy nothing , Jason Hill he looks ok but i want to see him with the first team offense , Battle i don't like him but the dude seems to get more open then anyone else , I am posting this to see if anybody agrees or maybe wants to add there own insight
Its amazing how many people read too much into pre-season. Lets remember that through 2 games, Bruce and Gore have each played a total of 1 series. In general, the starters didn't play much more than 1 series in the first game. To the extent you want to believe these are "real" games, the Raiders strength is their pass defense but their run defense struggles quite a bit. Even when the 49ers started passing the ball more with Davis in the 2nd half of the Raider game, Davis had a very limited package to work from. Its also a new offense and until now, there's been a QB competition going on so its not like there is a lot of continuity right now. The WR's will be fine. Remember, the Lions went 4-0 last pre-season. That should be all you need to know about making evaluations based on pre-season games.
