2014 Season in Review
The GoodDespite winning just three games in 2014, the Oakland Raiders did have some good news, even if it wasn’t nearly as much as they’d have liked. First and foremost, it appears as though the Raiders have finally found their franchise quarterback in surprisingly poised 2014 second round draft pick, Derek Carr. While the young signal-caller often struggled as does any rookie not named Dan Marino, Carr also showed composure beyond his years more often than not and was rarely the main reason when the Raiders did lose.
The BadThere was plenty of bad news for the Raiders as well – on both sides of the ball too. While Carr showed a ton of promise and potential, Oakland finished dead last in total offense (282.2 ypg), including 26th in passing (204.7ypg) and dead last in rushing, averaging a pitiful 77.5 rushing yards per game.
The UglyIt’s kind of hard to win games when you can’t score the ball or stop the other team from scoring as Oakland did for the vast majority of the 2014 regular season. Oakland ranked 31st in scoring by averaging a disgraceful 15.8 points per game while also ranking dead last (again?), in points allowed (28.2 ppg).
