Today was scrimmage day.
Or as defensive coordinator Rob Ryan might call it, make the offense cry day.
The offense didn't look good most of the scrimmage. It's hard to gauge because the offensive line's schemes calls for cut blocking and you don't cut your teammates.
But some of the problems were familiar, cut or not cut blocking:
Robert Gallery was called for holding while pass blocking.
There was a botched snap between Andrew Walter and center Jeremy Newberry. Walter nearly mishandled a snap earlier on the same drive. Coach Lane Kiffin yelled, "how about picking the ball off the ground" as the offense left the field after the bad snap.
Walter also threw an interception.
The defensive line was able to dominate the line of scrimmage.
Coach Lane Kiffin said his playcalling was limited in running by the inability to cut block, but he wasn't pleased with two turnovers by the offense.
But there were some positives, just not many.
Daunte Culpepper had the only touchdown pass - a 20-yard strike to Carlos Francis.
The longest run was by Adimchinobe Echemandu, a 15-yard scamper along the right sideline.
Sebastian Janikowski made a 58-yard field goal that cleared the uprights by at least 10 yards.
But the defense had its way, as expected.
A more accurate assessment of the offense will come next Saturday in the Raiders' first exhibition game against the visiting Arizona Cardinals.
