The pass rush has to be better than last year. If it isn't our D will be in for another long year.
good read Napo thanks
Win Lose Or Tie Raiders Till I Die!!!!
Pass rush AND stopping the run. If the line can do it's job our LBs will be fine.

Right on! Thanx for the link pal! Good read
we really need to sack brady, atleast 5 times
Lack of pass rush makes it pretty hard for the defensive backfield to do their job. Look at what happened last year in Denver. Denver's lack of pass rush made exposed Champ Bailey as something less than the best corner cover in the game.
Thanks for the link.
Speaking of 6'2" 266lb DE Derrick Burgess "He's a monster. There's no other way to put it," Sapp said. "He brings something special to the game."
It also spoke of a previous separated sternum which was mentioned in what many claim to be a joke, not by KITM, but by someone else.
Burgess is a very good edge rusher. Kelly was unblockable all preseason. Even Delawrence Grant looked good. The key to our pass rush being better is getting pressure up the middle so that when Burgess, Grant, and Kelly (when playing DE) force the QB up into the pocket, the Dtackles need to be there to make the play.
i have a gut feeling this is gonna be a great game for us...i think our D is going to gel finally
Last season when the Raiders signed Sapp, I was excited. How could one team stop both Sapp and Washington in the middle, then Ryan changed everything up with the 3-4. It was a horrible change, now we're back in the 4-3 and Sapp looks like Sapp again. If Sapp is back, along with kelly,burgess,washington,Irons, it looks like we'll be strong again. My biggest worry about pass rush is scheme. I feel if Ryan leaves our boys alone to play THEIR GAME IN THEIR NATURAL POSITIONS we'll compete with a good defense, alot is to be seen and I think alot will be answered thursday night though. I'm praying to see SAPP BACK and all over brady thursday. Well those are my thoughts. GO OAKLAND RAIDERS & ATTACK DEFENSE ATTACK!!!!
