Matt Shaughnessy Q&A

Transcript of a conference call with third-round draft pick Matt Shaughnessy:

Q: Did you visit Alameda?

Shaughnessy: No I have not.

Q: Have you heard from the Raiders at all?

Shaughnessy: I talked to them, you know, at the game and the combine so I’ve been in contact with them.

Q: Are recent injuries a concern, or in the past?

Shaughnessy: I think they’re all behind me. I played this season, you know, I got through it. Right now, I feel the best I’ve ever felt so . . .

Q: Numbers down, how much of that the broken leg?

Shaughnessy: I don’t know, I’d say it’s a little bit and you know, I don’t know, I played for four years. I think people like, I established at Wisconsin so you know, things happen, people run other ways.

Q: Know anything about the Raiders and your chances?

Shaughnessy: Well I’m not sure but I talked to Coach Board and he said he wants me to come in and give it a shot, you know, and compete for playing so that’s what I’m going to do, come in and give my hardest.

Q: At your best, what do you bring to the table?

Shaughnessy: I think my speed and athleticisim and my motor.

Q: Areas to improve?

Shaughnessy:I don’t know, you know. I’m just looking forward to getting in there and learning from the people that are there and you know just getting better as a player.

Q: Long night when not drafted on first day?

Shaughnessy: It wasn’t too bad, you know. I sort of wanted this whole process to be a surprise you know. Obviously, me and my agent talked about certain things I knew I’d be going you know today but you know I really wasn’t too worried.

Q: Who is your agent?

Shaughnessy: Rich Rosa at Eastern Athletic Sports.

Q: Left end or right side?

Shaughnessy: I played both and I played a little tackle in a three-man front technique personnel.

Q: Board give any specifics?

Shaughnessy: Not yet probably a little when I meet him we’ll talk more about that stuff.

Q: Any Raider memories?

Shaughnessy: Growing up, you know, I watched as much football, I never had a favorite team, so I just always watched any team. Obviously, it’s my favorite team now.

Q: Where were you when drafted?

Shaughnessy: I was at home with my parents and friends.

Q: Can you help the run defense, did Board say as much?

Shaughnessy: He hasn’t talked to me about it yet but I feel like I can help out with that, definitely.

    Shaughnessy, how will it feel when you are getting run over all day?

    He seems to think “we know” a lot.

    I disagree.

    Who is Matt Shaghhensasy?

  • IndianaRaider

    Kid may be good or may not, we’ll find out soon enough but he scares me with his “You know, I don’t know, you know.” comments every other time he speaks.

  • Tommy Trojan25

    I havn’t read the whole thing because i can’t stop laughing. How is the guy going to sound in a video interview, you know…

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    A’s tied it. Nomar RBI.

  • http://www.actionext.com/playlist_57486.html La Milicia Negra

    this guy does NOT sound as the sharpest tool in the shed….

    what a waste of a pick, and that has nothing to do with how stupid he sounds, we clearly dont need him…

    who will be our MLB? and how will we ever stop the run?

  • http://www.actionext.com/playlist_57486.html La Milicia Negra

    I assume we will dump all receivers picked by Kiffin just so Al can say how right he was, otherwise i cant understand we drafted two…

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    A’s up 3-1. Suzuki smashed a double off the wall.

  • Tommy Trojan25

    …”because Burgess is done,” wow…

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    LMN, you nailed it. Davis is more concerned with showing up Kiffin than he is just building a good football team. Worst general manager in sports history? Considering Ron Wolf built our SB winners, it’s debatable.

  • Tommy Trojan25

    Heyward-Bey will be one of the best, most fear WRs in the NFL.

    Mitchell will be one of the best, most feared safeties in the NFL.

    Shaughnessy will be one of the funniest defensive lineman in the rotation, you know?

    I don’t know much, but I know this, you know?

  • IndianaRaider

    As much as I wanted to see efforts in place to stop the run, after reading this, it looks as if thats not going to happen this year.

    Q: Can you help the run defense, did Board say as much?

    Shaughnessy: He hasn’t talked to me about it yet but I feel like I can help out with that, definitely.

    can you draft a Frisbee? i heard they fly really really fast, what 40time does a Frisbee have?

    I bet a Frisbee is a better player than some of the guys drafted by Al… at least the hit hard and hurts =)

    Yeah the Forrest Gump reference went completely over your head buddy

    While reading this moron’s interview, ESPN was doing an nterview with Brian Hoyer (QB from MSU) and every other word, you know, was you know………..

    Can someone, you know, fix the , you know, damn, you know education system in this effing country, you know!?!?!?!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    In Darius Gump’s 3 NFL seasons, he will easily set the record for dropped balls, and no touch tackles for a WR.

  • Crow

    “three-man front technique personnel”

    Um…what?

  • Sweep The Leg

    I don’t know, you know, like I guess, you know, i dont know, you know?

    Huh?

  • RosevilleRaider

    I don’t know, “you know”, about the pick, “you know”…

    What an idiot. I can chalk some of that up to nerves, “You know”, but WTF!

    The Retarded Team of the Ages, “You know”.

    All we have left is hope, and, “You know”, the Raiders, “You know”, just urinated all over hope, “You know”.

    I’m going to go suck on an exhaust pipe, “You know”…

  • Tommy Trojan25

    Is that 11 USC draft picks so far. Wow, it’s going to be awesome winning the National Title the year after sending 11 players to the draft.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Brien, what are you angry about, today?

    HAHA… too funny, this guy is going to make more money in the next year than you will likely in the next twenty! He’s being interviewed, over the phone no-less, and he’s probably just 21 years old. When you were 21 you were likely studying for your GED in night school and the interview you had to give was to the police department.

  • DMunoz 26

    Tommy Trojan25, go suck your self. USC will be terrible this year. They won’t finish better than 6-5.

    Brien,

    another situational pass rusher? Your boy Burgess is still on the roster…

    As I said when I did my BS mock draft…..its the best way to go but it wont happen. It didnt happen for both you and I regarding the raiders stopping the run. I told all Al would reach big time because none of the projected players by analysts would be on Al’s board. Told ya Raji and Craptree would get passed on by Al. It sad though WE CANT STOP THE RUN STILL. I’m miffed at it

    I can live with DHB as i can live with McFadden and Russell didnt want any of the guys, but heck now they are Raiders…

    Mike Mitchell seems to have it, I posted a youtube clip just as we picked him, he seems to be okay, him at SS and Branch at FS thats okay..

    I still wanted more for us trading down in the 2nd… we should ahve had a 5th round pick IMO too long between our last picks…

    Furthermore, I wanted Antoine Caldwell in 3rd, so Russell had some protection. this Matt fella is just not necessary and he thats the pick that pizzes me off the most…

    the WR in 4th and the OLB makes me shake my head, we need DT and ILB…

  • http://atm Raider O

    LMAO,

    This kid will be a killer, you know!!!

    I can see it now!!!!

    Cable to the kid: I know that you don’t know, you know?

    The kid: I know that I dont know, you know!!

    Cable: now go Get’em Killer.

    The kid yelling while running on the Field: I Know!!!!

  • Tommy Trojan25

    For the rest of his time with the Raiders, Shaughnessy will be remembered for this interview, you know?

    hahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!
