    Happened to watch some of the Saints-Raiders game replay on the NFL Network. Oh. My. God.

    Here is how one single offensive series for the Raidets went:

    First down – sack
    Second down – sack, the only Raider the sacker was within a yard of was Matt Flynn, the QB.
    But the coup de grace was the third down.

    The Raiders have third and a mile because Matt Flynn just took two sacks. To give himself at least a second before the pass rush gets to him, he goes into the shotgun. Mind you, the shotgun spot puts Flynn behind his own 10 yd line. The Saints mercifully do not blitz; everybody except their three d-linemen drops back. Those three d-linemen, each with a double team, proceed to manhandle their six blockers. All of the Raiders are on rollerblades getting pushed back into Flynn’s face. Finally, the TE disengages from his block so that Flynn can check the ball down to him for a minimal gain. But the RT cannot stop his assignment even for the split-second it takes for him to do this. He gets flagged for a hold. But the Saints decide that it just is not worth it. The penalty would put the Raiders into prime territory for a safety, but they do not care and let the Raiders have the completion and the fourth down.

    Let me be specific: three Saints were able to force the starting Raiders o-line plus a TE five yards back. Whoever wins Oakland’s QB competition is a dead man.
