    Raiders go for a 76 yard field goal

    Good Lord.
    With 1 second left in the first half, on their own 42, the Raiders opted to go for a 76 yard field goal instead of throwing the hail mary.

    3-2-OAK 42
    (:01) 11-S.Janikowski 76 yard field goal is No Good, Center-59-J.Condo, Holder-9-S.Lechler. 31-A.Cromartie at SD 2 to SD 28 for 26 yards (86-T.Stewart).
    WTF?
    Ummm, Cromartie holds the NFL record of 109 yards for returning a missed FG back for a TD.
    A hail mary, even if picked off would have been a much safer play, not to mention having a much higher reward and a much better chance of success.

    Cromartie caught it at the 2.
    So still about 12 yards short.

    Why was it Bonehead? It was either a Punt with one second left in the half... or attempt a FG.

    I thought it was a cool move, I mean... what the hell... why not?

    Its not too boneheaded but IMO theres a 5 percent chance he hits an almost 80 yard field goal in a game

    Better chance of running a draw or a short pass and lateral or a hail mary then that

    IMO of course

    Re: Raiders go for a 76 yard field goal

    Why not?

    After last year's week 2 game against Denver I'm pretty confident Janikowski could make a 70-80 yard field goal.

    He attempted a 52 yarder, that hit the upright. The very top of the upright.

    So after traveling 52 yards, the ball was still 40 feet in the air.


    Check it out at 3:02.

    If you're referring to my post, it's from a game last year. Oakland played San Diego yesterday. I was just displaying Janikowski's leg strength.
