Web exclusive: The plight of Andrew Walter

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, August 1st, 2008 at 9:09 am in Oakland Raiders.

A web exclusive column on Raiders quarterback Andrew Walter was posted last night. Walter missed the evening session with a tired arm, the result of extra throwing because of missed practice time by starter JaMarcus Russell.

    LMN i agree with you about griffith but griffith is more of a cut blocker and doesn’t have the size that OO does. i read that griffith is mcfaddens roomate right now which great since griff has the leadership you were talking about.

    no worries I was a lil how you say “feeling good” Im catching a cold Its all bad
    go raiders!!!

  • NoLuv4Hoes

    i hope they don’t cut griffith or OO. you don’t see many teams with two fb’s. i think it is a very good idea keeping two since they take on all those linebackers all season. i hope OO and mcfadden become our lorenzo neil and ladanmian t

    I can’t remeber what year, but one year when Atlantas DVD was going smoothly (dunn-vick-duckett) one of the RB went down and Griffth just took his share, when the years was over Griffiths avg was much better than the one he replaced… and have I mention his hands?

    I still like Walters but coach thinks hes a pu$s I hope that he steps up cuz if Jamarcus gets hurt i dont think Tui is the answer.. I think hes a good teammate & all hes just too careless with the ball!!!

    COW & Jedi Raider:

    Love reading your insights and details to support them.

    PS: There are many others in this blog who post good thoughts and opinions as well. Great that MR isn’t around. Hopefully, Jerry won’t take too long in posting the afternoon details of practice. May it all be positive.

    I don’t want to get into predictions but we are liable to sweep both the Donkeys and the Queefs this year. Remember, its been noted that Kiffin performs much better against repeat opponents. We beat the Chiefs last year in Arrowhead and dominated the Donkeys the second go around. It’ll be a dream to dominate them again opening night. I think Kiffin’s got their numbers.

  • Raiderbaitor

    Andrew Walter to the Packers for Brett Favre!

  • Lowdown in Beijing

    How does McQ end up a back up on the left side and Green starts?

    Stop the insanity train…

    Law Firm of Morrison, Howard and Brown.

    And lastly, am I correct in reading that when the O goes up against the D that each side is engaging in “Limited Full Contact” ??

    (J. Cooper notwithstanding…)

  • Thec

    I am of the opinion we sweep the cooks, and the bonkoles. We go 3-0 into the hole vs lite and the dischargers we could pull off what the world is calling improbable. we were 2 plays from beating them last year. 2 plays….

  • Raiderbaitor

    Andrew Walter should have retired at the end of last season. Then he could have filed for re-instatement last week, demanding the starting QB job or a trade or he would come to camp and be a total distraction.

    Mistabrown:

    You made a good observation concerning Kiffin involvement with our defense. I didn’t see any responses, so I’ll mention what you said again. You basically asked if Kiffin was adding his ideas to the mix on defense by experimenting with Burgess at different sets and locations to create mis-matches? Or, was this experimenting coming from Rob Ryan? I tend to think that it’s coming from Kiffin and not RR. I haven’t seen anything from RR in the years he coached for us, other than a bad haircut and a scrubby beard.

    Try this..

    1 1/2 oz. Bourbon.
    1/2 tsp. honey.
    A good squeez of lemon juice.

    Microwave for 20 sec. make sure it is NOT to hot.

    Consume.
    Repeat as necessary.

    Fail safe remedy, for what is ailing you.

  • Ryan

    Just don’t squeeze the lemon until the juice runs down your leg.

  • Huff24

    Shanahan is fooling himself if he thinks hes making it to the playoffs. He has very little talent on that team. What they do have is consistency over the years when it comes to coaching and schemes but that is finally failing them now and too many poor decisions have corrupted the good of the team and the talent has been laid to waste. Shanahan has lost control and guarenteeing the playoffs is just another sign of desperation to appease the owner thats really to pull the plug. The scary thing is…The owner could have the options of someone like Bill Cowher or Bill Billick next year.

  • La Milicia Negra

    RRF…

    well I disagree, we all know RR was hired to be a 3-4 DC, but we quickly found out that our highest paid player didn’t fare well in that system… I think this is RR’s way to ease us over to be a 3-4 D and not a 4-3 D… And I think thats is something Kiffin and RR both agreed upon this season knowing Sapp wouldn’t be here and that it is RR last season…

  • Dakota

    …or Lane Kiffin.

  • 909raiderlifer

    Got 2 go, have a GREAT weekend everyone.

    408, get feeling better bro.

  • Raiderbaitor

    The Raider’s receiver woes just might be solved. BMW (Big Mike Williams) was cut by the Titans yesterday and is available. Didn’t he play for Kiffin at USC? Maybe Kiff will give him a chance to make the Raiders. What?….. Oh!…… Nevermind!!!

  • Thec

    Huff, I heaqr ya bro but F both of the bills and the horse buggy and carrige they ride in….

    CHARGERS THINKING TEXAS?
    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 1, 2008, 9:06 a.m.
    A story on the San Diego Chargers’ official web site notes that Texas Governor Rick Perry was the special guest of Chargers President Dean Spanos at training camp practice on Wednesday morning.

    Was this just a matter of Perry stopping by a training camp while on vacation? Or, as Christy Hoppe of the Dallas Morning News writes, could Perry be selling San Antonio as a place for the Chargers to move?

    San Antonio has a stadium in place already, a stadium that has hosted regular-season NFL games when the Saints had to relocate after Hurricane Katrina. The Chargers, meanwhile, want to find a nicer home than Qualcomm Stadium but haven’t been able to work a deal for a new stadium in the area.

    We’re not saying a Chargers move to San Antonio is close to happening, but we do think Perry and Spanos were talking about more than just whether Perry should draft LaDainian Tomlinson in the U.S. governors’ fantasy football league.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    This would be great. Only thing better would be the Raiders moving to San Antonio.

    At least this way, I could go to a Raiders game every season.

    Dakota…

    watch your mouth. I wont hear anything like it! please =)

  • In Too Deep

    does anybody know who the most famous football player to wear #31 was or is?

  • Dakota

    K-rock,

    If the Chargers move to San An, would you convert?

  • Raiderbaitor

    The Raiders should move to Rossmoor and take Al Davis with them.

    WASHINGTON SUSPENDED FOR ONE GAME
    Posted by Mike Florio on August 1, 2008, 4:27 p.m.
    Cornerback Fabian Washington has been suspended for the first game of the 2008 season, due to a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy.

    “We had knowledge of Fabian’s situation prior to the trade we made for him,” G.M. Ozzie Newsome said in a release. “Based on the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and Fabian’s agreement with the authorities, we knew that a suspension was a possibility. Fabian knows his actions were a mistake and has taken appropriate actions since then.”

    Said Washington: “I put myself in a bad situation, and I did not handle it the right way. I was wrong and made a mistake. My girlfriend, my attorney and I wanted a quick resolution and knew that a suspension could happen.”

    The suspension will take effect on August 30. He’ll miss practice prior to the Week One game against the Bengals, and he’ll be permitted to return to the team on September 8.

    Washington was arrested in February for domestic battery, but avoided prosecution via a 26-week intervention program. He was traded by the Raiders to the Ravens in April.

    As a reader recently point out, the message of the past week, given the lack of any penalty imposed on Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, is this: Don’t hit a woman, unless you do it with your car.

    K-rock,

    yeah you’re right… but dang it piss me off, either delete it all, or at least those without knowledge behind, they shouldn’t delete the explanation….

    But you’re right Fu©k FCK, Fu©k the chefs, the donkies and the san anatonio chargers LOL

  • Ryan

    Jim Taylor #31 FB Green Bay. Why?

  • K-Rock

    Would I convert from being a Raiders fan?

    Are you ill?

    Chargers being in San Antonio would mean the Raiders would be in TX at least once every year.

    One thing I don’t understand. The Raiders have played the Texans the last 4 years, but only played in TX once.

    Last time they played Dallas was in Oakland as well.

    I have to drive 6 hours just to see them play in New Orleans.
