    R4L — All respect, but the great Lester Hayes hates the moniker “the molester.” Lester worked very hard to establish himself as The Judge; if you came into his area, he’d be the decider-person as to your fate. Being called “the molester” just lacks a certain quality. The Judge is a much more comfortable handle, one which also belies his football savvy.

    Thanks for the kind words though, RFL — I’m sure Lester loves reading posts like these!

    Bo Schembechler Jackson –

    How about them Lakers. Man they looked good last night. You were so right.

  • Raider4life

    #37–Wasn’t aware that Lester to offense to the nickname. I only remember him as the “molester” cuz of being an absolute shutdown corner. One of the greatest man-to-man corners in history, but doesn’t get his do cuz of the stickem. I remember him having a lot of speech problems early, but overcame it with help. Still one of my all time favs.

    Was Bill Callahan referring to Wonderlic scores when he said “we must be the dumbest team in football?”

  • Florida Pete

    Lester got the “molester” moniker because he had no problem mugging receivers at the line…

    and at this time in football it was legal to continue mugging a receiver going downfield… he was good at that too…

    rules have changed…

  • Raider4life

    I don’t give a rat as* what JaMarcus or DMac scored on any test. All I care is they stay healthy and play great football. Screw Mr. Wonderlic and his test.

  • HayesDaze#37

    R4L — All good, man — glad to help educate in what little way I can. Check out Lester’s bio on wikipedia…it’s pretty cool.

    Lester Hayes to the Hall Of Fame!

    so what is Callahan doing these days???

    On January 18th, 2008, following his firing from the Cornhuskers, Callahan was hired as Assistant Head Coach of the New York Jets.

    job description:

    assist with the construction of sandwiches for post game meals…

    dispense and retrieve towels…

    inspect personnel for infestations…

    Wonderlic scores are supposed to be confidential. The league won’t confirm scores that get “leaked” to the public, but the stories still get out sometimes. If JaMarcus had a lower-than-average score, I’m sure the anti-Raiders contingent would find a way to get that news out.

    hating on the lakers cause they whooped on that cheap warriors team???


  • Raider4life

    408–Warriors will never get to the next level with Nelson. He refuses to play defense and refuses to get a true big man. Andreas Bidreas(sp) spends more time at the tanning salon then lifting weights or shootin foul shots. In two years when Keith Smart is HC and they play defense they could challange the Lakers.

  • HayesDaze#37

    Outta here for awhile.

    Go Raiders!

    The level of talent on this offensive roster has compounded exponentially. The competition from DMC will only push Fargas and Bush further. Be prepared to see some monsters in the backfield! JR is going to have some potent weapons back there – a secure blanket if you will. This offense is limited only to Kiffin’s imagination.

    There still remains some weak points or questions that I have about the O; specifically, the O-line. Serious competition really needs to heat up here. A talent infusion is required across the board imho – backups too. They are trying but I’m not too certain if its enough. Only time will tell.

    TE is looking great. FB is looking great. (multi-talented persons man these positions). WR is on the up and up. There is a diverisity of muli-talented players on the roster. Soon this team will have one the most potent offenses in the league – maybe even rival the Colts if not surpass them. Already I can see them rivaling the Chargers (RB match but our corp is better, FBs ours better, TE theirs better, WRs match, QB ours more talented, OLine theirs better). Quite a move up for the Raiders all things considered. Two short years ago we were behind in every category except maybe WR now they only edge us by maybe 2/6 categories.

    Regarding the Wonderlic topic:

    The REAL question is what Lane Kiffin scored on the test when he came out of Fresno State…

    Or what his SATs were when he was finishing high school in Minn.


  • Bo Schembechler Jackson

    OMG I just read that Kiffin has a daughter named LANDRY!! What kind of Cowboys suckazz BS is THAT?!

    He better name his next girl Amy (for Trask) or Otto if its a boy, or Al will have to can him for cause.

    K-Rock, post #161:

    What an off-the-wall-statement to make about Russells and MaFaddens press conference. Instead of showing some love for Raider Nation and the signing of our “first-round” pick, you vent you negative venom. I also detect some racial feelings there???

    In the press conference, this morning, I saw a humble 20 year old kid, dealing with a lot of pressure, not knowing what kind of questions could be throw at him from the media jerks. Maybe we watched different press conferences. I saw a young man who wants to get into training camp, who wants to learn and be productive for the Raiders. I saw a young man who wants to make the Raider Nation proud of him. And, I saw a young man who wants to take care of his family. Good for him.

    Good for Raider Nation…we have an awesome, young running back who wants to contribute big time for our team. GO RAIDERS …And thank you Al for the quick signing of Darren.

  • gfm975

    OK, for all the naysayers that forecast another “HOLD OUT” because Big Al and the front office are so inept… don’t you ever tire of being wrong so often?

    Go Raiders…..
