2012 Game Summaries
Week 1 - With several Oakland receivers out of commission for this game, the newly-acquired Hagan saw significant action. He led Raider wideouts in receiving yardage, and very nearly added a touchdown as well. Hagan found himself wide open along the back line of the end zone, but a San Diego defender stepped in front of the lob pass from Carson Palmer for a near-interception. Had he not gotten his hands on the ball, Hagan would have easily scored. Though most of his action came in the first half, it appears as if heíll be a regular contributor to the passing game out of the slot (particularly on third downs) until the regulars make their way back.
Week 3 - Hagan isnít much more than a third or fourth option, but he made a big catch to set up the game-winning field goal. His talent is far from elite, and that was evident on a near-catch on the sideline where he couldnít get his second foot down.
Week 4 - Hagan started on Sunday along with Moore, but did almost nothing to impact the game. Hagan was targeted five times, but only caught two balls and only one when the game was still at reach. It was merely a spot start for Hagan as Oakland tries to get healthier at the position.
Week 6 - Derek Hagan had a nice day, totaling 4 catches for 85 yards. Despite only being targeted 5 times, Hagan made the most of his opportunties. His biggest play came on a 38 yard gain on which his defender, Asante Samuel, made a terrible gamble and got burned for a big play. Other than that, Hagan operated successfully primarily because of Darrius Heyward-Bey's injury a couple weeks ago, so it's tough to say if this will continue. Rod Streater had 3 catches for 24 yards, but the main catch to note here was a solid 3rd and 12 conversion which featured a good catch and even better throw from Carson Palmer to a place only Streater could catch it. Streater primarily operated on short routes, and his 3 catches were also his only targets.
Week 9 - Hagan thought he had a huge touchdown reception in the second quarter, but the play was called back for holding. Nonetheless, Hagan still beat his defender deep and caught the ball cleanly. Hagan's first reception came on a quick screen late in the fourth quarter.
Week 10 - Hagan was minimally involved as an ancillary receiver. He caught two short receptions, both in hurry-up situations against favorable coverage.
Week 11 - Hagan only received two targets, both coming in the first three drives, with his lone catch going for 17 yards on a hitch. Hagan actually had the coverage beat on his initial target the Raidersí opening drive, but Palmer slightly underthrew Hagan and Patrick Robinson was able to break the pass up.
Week 13 - Hagan made a spot appearance for a fourth quarter reception. He caught a slant route out of a four-receiver set to continue a promising Oakland drive.
