Thump In The Morning

Weekdays 5am - 10am Saturdays 2pm - 7pm

The Las Vegas Raiders gave coach Josh McDaniels a successful homecoming in his debut on their sideline. Josh Jacobs, rookie Zamir White and Austin Walter ran well on a rain-soaked field and the Raiders beat the Jaguars 27-11 in the Hall of Fame game Thursday night, spoiling coach Doug Pederson’s first game with the Jaguars.

McDaniels grew up in this historic football town and played for his father, Thom McDaniels, at Canton McKinley High School on this field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, known as Fawcett Stadium during his time as varsity quarterback and kicker.

Derek Carr and Davante Adams warmed up but they didn’t get a chance to play their first game together since Fresno State. Carr, the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, and Adams, the All-Pro receiver acquired in blockbuster trade with Green Bay, were among many starters who sat out for both teams. Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence wore a backward cap on the sideline while third-string quarterback Jake Luton started. Most football fans call the Hall Of Fame game and pre season boring because the star players are reserved to avoid getting hurt before the season start. However, other players got the opportunity to show why they deserve to make the depth charts which made the game that more interesting.  Daniel Carlson connected on field goals of 32 and 55 yards to give the Raiders a six-zero lead in the first quarter. Ameer Abdullah scored on an eight-yard run in the second quarter and Stidham scrambled 12 yards for a touchdown to make it 20-0 late in the first half. The highlight of the game didn’t count. Jacksonville’s Willie Johnson returned a punt 88 yards for a score on the final play of the third quarter but it was nullified by a holding penalty. Down 27-3, the Jaguars finally found the end zone when Kyle Sloter tossed a five-yard TD pass to Nathan Cottrell late in the fourth quarter. Cottrell ran up the middle for the 2-point conversion, but to little to late as the Raiders brought the victory home. In the words of the late great Al Davis…”Just Win Baby!”
