Matt McGloin. I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

One thing that is hurting Cook is the fact that two Raiders on the 0-line are out with injuries.

I can't remember a more awful quarterback performance. And the Raiders have 3 pro bowl offensive linemen.

Turnovers are so costly in the playoffs. The raiders coaching staff was trying to hide the QB when the game first started and that's what led to the INT.

So Cook will not be in the NFL next season

Another thing hurting Raiders is drops. I mean, how many passes are these guys gonna drop today? Crabtree, Roberts, Cooper, all their wide outs are dropping catchall passes. Cook certainly is in over his head but he's put a few passes spot on and his guys aren't catching them...

A better team would be up 42-7 right now, so this is still illustrative of how offensively challenged Houston is. They should thoroughly get whipped if they go to Foxboro next week. I can see them hanging with Kansas city because the Chiefs seem to play down to the level of the competition for some reason, but I don't see the Texans winning...

For Oakland, the future is bright, they just caught a bad break at the worst possible time. They've got to improve their secondary and pass rush next year but this team is set to be a contender for years...

Houston has to figure out who their quarterback is. This team will forever be 9-7 if they can't get a competent QB to lead them. That defense is damn good, will be even better with Watt back. I think Savage has more promise than Osweiler, but point blank, if somebody doesn't step up and be the guy, Houston will never reward their fans or championship caliber defense!

I don't know whether they are overrated as a group or if it's just a bad game, but they were bad versus Denver last week too. It's one thing to be down to your backup quarterbacks. This high priced offensive line has not provides nearly enough stability. #76 is getting his ass handed to him every play, Osemele is getting beat. This offensive line, based on last two weeks, is kinda overrated...

Another Oakland drop!

I can't believe the drops, try to help out your rookie QB, focus on the ball then worry about what to do next! Mercy!

Oh Brady and Belichick a laughing at these teams! Houston or Oakland at New England is almost like a bye week.

We now know that a OL does not make a QB good it's the talent he brings to the table.

Give Connor Cook credit-took the Raiders on a long drive--and his last few passes were sharp--the td pass certainly was.

I'm a tad surprised that the Raiders didn't go for an onside kick after the td.


ADD>>>>>>>>>>>>About 15 minutes ago the NFL rep escorted Crabtree into the clubhouse. And it was just announced that he is out for the game-concussion.
