    Considering what he has to work with there in Houston, pretty decent.

    Re: Sage gets a W

    Sage has done this before ... having a below average day when he gets the start.

    He seems to perform much better coming off the bench, much as I hate to say it.

    Hopefully Shaub is out again next week for another try at it.

    The TD was a great ball.

    Dayne gave him a lot of help, running very hard.

    I wouldn't say that is below average. He was only given 19 attempts. Houston got an early lead and was running the ball well, so they stuck with it. Sage did a good job.

    Well, ok. I watched the majority of the game and he definately didn't make many plays - he was a "game manager" to use an terrible cliche. I was just thinking the Raiders may have been a breakout opportunity for him.

    Re: Sage gets a W

    The Raider defense is pretty decent. It's just their offense that's horrid. Score a few points, play a conservative offense and you pretty much got the game against 'em.

    That's what Houston did today.

    I thought the staff showed great confidence in Sage in tossing that deep pass with a lead late in the game, that ended up being a long TD.

    Re: Sage gets a W

    Oakland has one of the top pass defenses in the league.

    For "Pass Yardage" yes, they're 3rd. But they only have 11 sacks tied for 23rd place.

    The Miami Dolphins are 5th for yardage allowed!! They are not a top defense.

    Of course my line of reasoning leads me to them being a really easy team to run on which inspires they're opponents to keep in on the ground - which gives the Qbs less opportunities - which totally backs up what you were saying in post #5.

    so there - you're right.
