Web exclusive: Short passing game OK for Russell


Some Raiders fans may not want to hear this, but Jerry McDonald says the short- to medium-range passing game suits JaMarcus Russell just fine. You can also find Jerry’s web exclusive column on our sports page.

  • The Raiders haven´t game-planned for a game yet, Kiffin said he´s gonna put together a game-plan for the Cardinals game.

    We´ll get a better look at what´s coming after that game.

    We need to have ball security, last season the Raiders ranked among the league´s worst with 37 Turonvers and a -11 differential, I´m on board with any game-plan that will lead to improve those numbers, which will translate into more winning.

  • Raider Phil

    Troll alert, everyone. Heeee’s baaaack. Anyhow, we do know that Fire Kiffin and MR are the same person, and he’s the moderator here. Silvernblack666 proved this yesterday. He proved it. With proof.

  • Jon Gruden’s Wife!

    HayesDayez, still attending special classes? Or, has mom enrolled you in regular courses, yet? Are you still eating paste?

  • HayesDaze#37

    R4L — If anybody can pull Boldin with only a 1st-round pick, they will have pulled off a coup. Boldin is better than any first-year WR, and the Cards know it.

  • Oakglenn, do you have any idea how boring your posts are? You sit in here and yammer on all freaking day about stupid x’s and o’s stuff that usually has nothing to do with this team. Seriously, how much does Al pay you? Even if it’s a million dollars a year, it’s still not enough. Not for the ass you make out of yourself on a daily basis. You know nothing about football, other than from playing Madden. That’s why nobody takes you seriously.

  • Fire Kiffin =MR.

  • M

    Marley Esq.,

    your post about “ball security” just made a Johnnie Lee pass before my eyes.

  • How’s my ass taste?



  • M

    Marley, usually you’re pretty boring. But this time I agree with you. Excellent points.

  • Jon Gruden’s wife!

    Post 400 & 403 are not me posting…in fact, I’m not even Grudens Wife. I’m SOMEONE ELSE ENTIRELY!

  • Actually it is pretty sad when some one has to post here all day and all nite, no one reads their posts, and they keep getting passed over for jobs at places like Wendy’s and Applebees. Fat, ugly and an internet blog groupie is no way to go thru life son.

  • Just to reiterate what I said earlier…

    Luke Petitgout was suspended for the first 4 games of the season.

    I thought it would be a good idea to give him a shot before but when you couple injuries with a suspension, it´s probably not worth it.

    And Marcus Pollard?…come on.

    Besides the fact that he´s 36, he can´t block and he won´t play special teams.

    Stewart, is not flashy bu he´s a decent back-up who does what back-up TE´s usually do which is block and play special teams.

    I´d rather keep 25 year old Madsen, whose game, like Pollard´s is limited to pass catching.

    In fact, I would rather give a chance to rookie free agent Darrell Strong who has made a few plays in camp.

    Personally, I think Kiffin is going to be gone anyway. And, we’ll probably go no better than 4-12 for the next few years. But one thing about being a Raider fan is that we don’t care. We’re going to stand by Al Davis and the Raiders through thick and thin. Talk to you guys later. Any posts under my name after this are you know who.

  • Andrews Mom

    Looks like I got my name on the Jerrys blog list.
    The troll who resides here is mimiking me as well.

    Thats what I get for calling out scary jerry.

  • M

    As well, 409 is naught that I would express.

  • Wow, I thought yall were RAIDER fans. Looks to me like most of yall are a bunch of CHAT freaks that just like to read there own opinion. That the ticket particapate in a open fourm and be closed minded… no wounder we get a bad wrap from the rest of the world.

  • La Milicia Negra

    Bob Marley..
    Okay, sorry, I thought Brady still was a patsy, he can still block and catch a few.. So why not!? I think he’ll have 2-3 years left in him..

  • M

    Later Nation.

  • Jon Gruden’s Wife!

    You tell them Oakglenn. You’re a pretty smart guy when you’re not going on and on with meaningless x’s and o’s talk. And, btw, I’m not even really Gruden’s wife! I’m trolling under this name, and now a troll is copying my troll name! I’m not a troll! I’m not a troll! I’m a law abiding citizen posting under this name to combat the trolls. The mods will understand, I hope. Oh, wait, MR is the mod. That’s why he gets away with everything and we don’t. I’m going to kill myself now.

  • Andrews Mom

    The Miami tunas will suprise people this year.
    Fat man parcells will have them playing football

  • You guys are acting like a bunch of faqs. Especially you, Oakglenn. You’re always saying to not respond to the trolls, then that’s all you do. It’s really you who’s ruining this place. I’m out of here. I’m going to go to a Niner blog, where there might be some real men.

  • HayesDaze#37

    HayesDaze#37 will not compare trolls…it’s not worth my time. Comparing one pile to another isn’t my idea of fun. However, it is kinda fun sometimes to watch people humiliate themselves on a message board that gets read by thousands of people everyday. Must be a great source of self-pride.

    (Sorry for the 3rd-person reference, but The Judge has spoken. So be it.)

  • Andrew’s mom, I’m sorry, but is Parcells going to be down there on the field? You guys give him too much credit. The guy’s a glorified scout. There’s only one person who gets credit for victory away from the field in this league, and it’s Al Davis. And, he doesn’t really deserve it. We just give it to him because we’re his whores. Good day.

  • gotta go. See y’all later.

  • I have arived!!! I now have my own troll. Trying to cloud this site like his own mind, with hops, and bong resin.

  • HayesDaze, if you’d stop referring to the trolls, they’d go away. You guys keep referring to them, and that’s why they’re here. So, thanks a lot. Just keep referring to them and thus inviting them back. Idiot.

  • Yeah, when the conversation isn’t going the way Al likes it, the Trolls come out to defend his honor.


  • Wiz 76, thanks a lot. Just keep giving the trolls recognition and then keep wondering why they come back. Idiot.

  • La Milicia Negra

    haahahhaha LOL this again Oakglenn?

  • La Milicia Negra

    new thread.. guys

  • Kell, it’s time for a cup of STFU. I’ve had about enough of your ass.

  • Your right man, I just don’t like to be mis-represinted.

    I like to talk RAIDERS football, thats it.

  • Andrews Mom


    good points!!
    I think Al taught tuna most everything tuna knows.

  • Jon Gruden’s wife!


    You can post under this Alias anytime…

    If you really wanted to impress me, you’ld just tell me what name I normally post under?

  • If all of you idiots would stop referencing the troll, and giving him recognition, he’d go away. New post.

  • HayesDaze#37

    Wiz 76 says:
    That the ticket particapate in a open fourm and be closed minded… no wounder we get a bad wrap from the rest of the world.


    Ha Ha Ha — Whatever that meant, it’s hilarious!

    I’d rather eat a sandwich on WONDER bread than get a bad WRAP from the rest of the world — don’t want to get food poisoning or a bad REP for PARTICIPATING in this open FORUM. I’d rather read this single forum than any FOUR(m) others. Maybe we can come up with a RAP to express ourselves to your satisfaction.

    Way to prove how smart you are, Wiz. It really cheered me up.

  • HayesDaze#37

    Apologies to the real Wiz — my shot was at the troll, of course…

  • Hayes, I’m just saying, if we’d stop fighting with each other like morons, we wouldn’t look like such miscreants to the rest of the sports world. As it stands, we look like a trailer park.


    OH so you mean were gonna use J-Rock like a Gannon with a cannon arm?!?!?!

    You mean he will be able to do what most of the detractors complained about that Gannon couldn’t throw over 20 yards accurately???


    Are you kidding me??? Short passes led us to the Superbowl while we blew everyone out like lint!

    We took Grudens offense and unleashed the hounds, thus destroyed everyone except of course the designer of that offence, Gruden.

    So Gannon except with a Cannon…

    OH wow now that’s a tragedy?!?!

  • RaiderKC

    Let’s get Joe Horn in for competition. Hell, he’ll get to start the way its been going. Make a trade for Boldin in AZ. The way that’s been going AZ will probably take anything for him, shoot give them Fargas and at 7th round pick.

  • La Milicia Negra

    guuuuys, there is a new thread..

  • i kind of get a sick feeling in my stomouch about hall , is he sandbagging? or does he have a serious injury which needs him to go on IR?
