Andre Holmes. The one-time Cowboys project receiver entered Thursday with five career catches for 76 yards. Holmes put on a first-half clinic against Dallas cornerback Orlando Scandrick, catching four passes for 56 yards after a particularly galling drop. The 6-foot-4 Holmes finished with seven catches for a game-high 136 yards. He seemed to become quarterback Matt McGloin’s most dependable target and, after serving a four-game suspension to start the season, seems to be rounding into shape as McGloin’s favorite target.
It looks like the Raiders won’t miss Juron Criner too much after being placed on the injured reserve. Both Andre Holmes and Greg Jenkins stepped up today on offense and special teams. I like this Oakland Raiders team they are just young.
