    So much for all seeing empty seats

  • One3

    err….Al (not all)

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    If Al would at least hire a Coach who shares his football philosophies, they could be on the same page, and draft accordingly.

    But nooooo. He hires WCO guys, which he can’t stand and undermines them at every turn.

    He’s been partially convinced that Raider Football is outdated and won’t work anymore.

  • RaiderRockstar

    wow. sellouts? i wonder why Mcafee pulled out? seems like we’re selling more tix despite the continual losing streak. I guess everybody wants to take their kids when the circus comes to town, eh?

  • S&B

    RaiderRockstar,

    My problem is taking flyers on these guys with busted up knees etc….Draft Shields in the 6th round. There are still players available without the injury history.

    Also, why did the Raiders IR Shields. They should have PUP’d him. Shields was practicing at the end of camp. PUP him and then cut Watkins now. Watkins clearly isn’t any good having not been activated to this point and playing behind this receiver line up

  • S&B

    Raiders have the best fan support in the NFL. Still selling out games despite all the off the field drama and poor win/loss record.

    The players and coaches have to get it together for this one. A loud stadium full of rabid fans. The defense has to start doing something with all that energy

    I guess I’m not the only idiot out there going to this debacle. It will all be worth it, if I can see McFadden running the Wildcat or Higgins and Schilens starting.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    You can thank JaMarcus Russell & Darren McFadden for the sellout.

  • RaiderRockstar

    S&B

    good points.. i agree

    when was the last time the Raiders drafted a WR in the upper rounds? Jerry Porter in round 2 ?

  • Andrews Mom

    HD37 This was for the other thread.

    Thanks for sticking around here at ROR. You always bring intelligence to the blog with insight thrown in for good measure.

    I am almost in favor of trading down. It seems the worse team can be saddled with unintended consequences that hinder rather then help it. System needs a change.

  • S&B

    RaiderRockstar,

    I think so with Jerry Porter. The 2nd round is the best round to find good players. Look, we landed Miller in the 2nd round. If I were the Raiders this year, I would trade that 1st round pick for an extra 2 and an extra 3rd unless this Crabtree guy is available.

    And even then I am wary of drafting Crabtree. Let’s grab a receiver in the 2nd round. It worked for Pittsburgh with that Linus guy out of texas.

  • KidSeven

    I’m flying all the way down from Seattle to witness this impersonation of an NFL franchise. I’m praying Farve is his erratic, gunslinging self and the Raiders can make a game of it.

    How is the Jet run D?

  • S&B

    and Eddie Royal and Desean Jackson were 2nd round picks last year

  • S&B

    I am all for accumulating picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. Plus you are not paying a ton of money up front either.

  • severeraider-Brothers United

    we couldn’t pup shields because he practiced in camp

  • S&B

    Well, with a healthy Darren Mcfadden things have the potential to get interesting. Gives the Jets something to think about in game planning.

    =======================================================
    Then the Raiders should have put him on the regular roster and cut that Watkins guy or cut Williams at linebacker. We need “ALL HANDS ON DECK” at receiver and having a guy like Shields, who is supposed to have good numbers, out for the year is a waste!

  • KidSeven

    Yeah, DMAC at least has the potential to make the defense adjust. And JLH has rapidly become a game-changer. I’d have laughed hysterically if someone would have told me 6 months ago that JLH would be our most potent weapon this season. But that’s the truth, however hard to swallow.

  • S&B

    Question for the Nation:

    Do the Raiders try and get a T.J Houshmindzada or Chad Johnson in the offseason?

    I am trying to figure out how we get Russell some immediate help at wide receiver but am nervous about free agents and their general record of performance in the silver & black.

    If you say no, which I can agree with, then what can the Raiders do to get Russell some real help at wide receiver.

    exactly, i said that during the draft and when we traded for Hall.. Royal was one of my boys..

    Sellout? You people are SUCKERS! haaahahahahaha

    I may have to give Audrey Trask a raise and maybe a % of my Raider stocks.

    She has been very good to me if you know what I mean! haaaaahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • S&B

    Also, the Raiders need to get back to basics against the Jets. Pound Fargas up the middle and use DMAC to take it outside. Also, put Fargas and DMAC in the backfield at the same time for a few plays. Playaction the hell out of them in that set too.

    Start using the weapons that Al has paid for!

    S&B #20,

    Learn how to develop young players they draft.

    We already had Randy Moss, and couldn’t figure out a way to use him, duh?

    Consistency and learn how to develop your young players and be a professional football organization.

    The organization has athropied as much as Mr Davis’ johnson.

    Did u see shields when he played in the pre??? The guy looked bad, sloppy routes and drops galore. We haven’t given watkins a chance, the least we could do is that, he was catching everything in camp, something the rest of players can’t be accused of.

  • http://fanscanfuqoff.com/ Al Davis

    We already run play action on EVERY pass! It has to fool them at some point right? haaaaahahahahahaha

  • http://the-autumn-wind-is-in-denial Commitment To Denial

    See, told you! Everything is fine! All of these doom and gloom media reports.

    “Kiffin and Al aren’t getting along”

    “Kiffin is going to be fired”.

    “Kiffin wasn’t wearing the team logo”.

    Blah, blah, blah. We’re still selling out games! This is why we don’t ever believe the mediots, people.

  • dick v

    KK,

    You are right about the sell out being all McFadden and Jamarcus.

    I am hoping that McFadden being hurt is the reason he has not got the ball; I am just pissed that he has not gotten the ball at least 20 times a game. Maybe him being a rookie, they are taking things slow and not trying the kid overwhelmed, but I just know that this is the NFL, and when he took that money he became a man by the rest of the worlds standards: they need to take the diaper off and give the young man the ball.

    I guess Javon just sucks because Knapp and Cable didn’t seem to want to get him the ball either.

    KruelKell,

    My people are watching you. You are treading on thin ice, along with MaddoxRaider, Jakota, Meemebrown, Coach on Wells, WelchRaider and all my other detractors on this site!

    Keep it up and expect a visit from the Kawacommie buster James Herrera!

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    As a long time fan, I know Al Davis is not fond of playing rookies. I don’t know why, that when Dmac does play, it’s only between the tackles.

  • S&B

    KoolKell,

    Agreed, do we have the young players at receiver right now that have the potential to develop into a solid number 1 receiver? Maybe Shillens. It he is that guy, then he really should be starting now. How else is he going to develop chemistry with Russell and develop as a player overall

  • http://the-autumn-wind-is-in-denial Commitment To Denial

    Al Davis, what did you to do Oakglenn? Where is he?

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    Herrera coming to see me, would be a dream come true. Oh my goodness.

  • http://the-autumn-wind-is-in-denial MR

    I’d love a visit from Herrera. The same guy who was shaking and quivering and walking back and forth, pretending he was a tough guy with a nerdy media reporter? I’d knock Herrera the f out. Anytime.

    thank Bret Favre for the sell out

    I did not “to do” anything to Spruceglenn you dyslexic traitor!

    By the way, how’s ya mutha?

  • http://insidebay Rick The Hunter

    Wow!,, I’m surprised that anyone would even go to the game after last week. Are people going to watch the Raiders LOSE or are they going to watch the Jets WIN featuring the Brett Farve showcase? When’s the draft?

    ======================================================
    Yeah, but he needs to work on getting better. KoolKell had a good point about the Raiders inability to develop young talent. Right now Shields can’t practice and is not getting better. he is sitting around. How much time is Schillens getting? Watkins doesn’t suit up.

    We waste our time with Walker, Lelie and Curry.

    Time to cut our losses at Wide Receiver and play the guys who have a chance to be with Russell for the long term

    man thats racist….

  • http://the-autumn-wind-is-in-denial MR

    I just thought about something.

    Doesn’t John Herrera personify what the Raiders football team is anymore? Just dons the silver and black, thinking people are supposed to be afraid of him, but obviously isn’t all that tough himself? Quivering and pacing while thinking he’s punking someone? That’s our football team.

  • severeraider-Brothers United

    We need more creative playcalling, knapp isn’t known for putting wideouts in a position to make plays. Besides TO I can’t think of any star receiver that blossomed under him. Look at Roddy White, as soon as Knapp leaves he turns into a star. We need to shake things up, we have much more talent than Miami and Atlanta but their playcalling is better and puts their playmakers in a position to make plays.

    post 19 I’ve stated since 4-08 {haha 4-08 get it }that JLH IS OUR BEST WR.We all know how I feel about donkey swo I wont go there

  • RaiderRockstar

    everybody wants to see old man Favre in his last season. the legend. the HOF’er.

    too bad he’s gonna get sacked and picked off. turnovers galore! he’s gonna consider retirement (again) after this game. the only players he’ll carry on his shoulder will be the injured ones!

    Jets will get eaten alive by the Black Hole!

  • http://the-autumn-wind-is-in-denial MR

    Severeraider, that’s funny. You saying we actually have wide outs…

    Hilarious.

    Rockstar,

    You do know that Ryne Ryan is still the head coach of the defense in Oakland and not in NY right?

    Even I know we are going to get murdered this weekend. I really don’t care at this point, as long as you SUCKERS keep coming to the games! hahahahahahahaaaaaa
