Fans Unable To Find Any Positives In Devastating Raiders Loss

It’s never easy to find positive takeaways after a devasting defeat, and the Las Vegas Raiders’ most recent loss is no different.

The Raiders fell flat in a game that many fans thought was going to be a blowout. If you’re looking for some solace, head coach Jon Gruden did say this was the best 3-7 team. This isn’t an excuse by any stretch, but Gruden knew this was going to be a tough game to win. Not only was it not easy, but it also turned out to be impossible.

Raider Nation is never afraid to be vocal when it comes to their team and today was no different. Here at the Raider Ramble, we asked our readers to weigh in on the loss via Twitter.

We were looking for some positive takeaways but obviously, there was none to be had. It’s understandable, considering the lopsided nature of the loss. One small positive was the early downfield shot to Henry Ruggs III or the play of Hunter Renfrow, however minuscule it might be.

Fans Unable To Find Any Positives In Raiders Loss

One takeaway, albeit not a good one, was that fans wanted to know why did Gruden abandon the running game. Clearly becoming going this route ended up costing the Raiders, no running game meant the pressure was back on Carr. Another thing that ailed the Silver and Black was the play at right tackle, which no doubt hindered the offense.

At the end of the day, a loss is a loss and the Raiders have plenty to work on. Carr deserves blame but so does Gruden, the playcalling, and of course, the defense. The question now becomes whether this team folds and falters following the loss, we’ll have to wait and see.
