    Raccoon,

    I never cared what others thought of hunting, I loved it.
    The tracking, the woods, dogs, and Guns. It was great.

    But when you almost cry when you hear an animal in pain, or even see its blood. it’s time to stop, and that’s what I did.

    Bro, I go around saving little Rabbits, after I used to be their worst enemy. lol

    Listening to the Crabtree interview yesterday, I wish I would have heard him speak before I vouched for him for months on this blog. What an idiot, his favorite thing on game-day is getting dressed? Who is he Paris Hilton??

  • ottocrat

    What would Ralph the Butterknife of KNBR talk about if there was no Oakland Raiders to make fun of? KNBR is the 49ers flagship, and you’d think they didn’t even participate in the draft judging by the subject matter. The G-damn Sharks just blew it again last night, and the Raiders’ draft is still subject #1 on these airwaves.

    Arman Shields

    SnB – Its easy to be wrong but I just think Shields has a better chance than Murphy. It will be good competition for the both of them, thats for sure.
    =======================================================
    The Raiders passed on a lot of guys to get Murphy. i think he’s here to play. If they loved Shields, and we are talking about the 5th receiver here…you don’t get Murphy.

    Remember, the Raiders in general draft on need…not value…so Murphy was a rare value pick…they needed a tight end, linebacker and DT at the time. Again, passed on a lot of good players…

    I think that’s all for Mr. Shields. Should have stayed healthy

    NOT SURE if this was posted;

    BOMB BEY will be on Greg Papas show “The Chronicle” tonight at 5pm pst and taped at 11pm pst.

    It airs on Comcast Sports Net Bay Area.

    Papa stuck up for him as a draft pick when being interviewed today on the radio.

  • 24

    Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders were very much into how they dressed and they’re the best at their positions All-Time. Who cares? Being the best on the field is what truly matters so we’ll see if Crabtree can do it. He has the ability, does he have the mind? I’m not going to hate on him. I wanted him on this team and if hes a bust, no big deal.

    The Raiders offense should be something to watch if they build on last year and Khalif and Mario hold up their ends of the bargin…

    Pound the ball up the middle and around the edge

    Use the RBs on screens and in the flats

    Miller underneath and JLH run and catch on those slants and crossing routes

    And have Schilens and “The D-HB” punish safeties deep

    ======================================================= SnB sounds like a plan to envade russia

  • alisgod

    I brought up their measurement to show that they both measure out similar but I can assure you Frantz is MUCH MUCH MORE physical.

    The scouting I quoted on Morriosn was dead on. They worried whether he was physcial enough and we all know what the answer is. Morrison reminds me of Dat Nguyen of Dallas. A good all around journeyman player but not great at anything.

    Frantz dominated in his league. He dominated in the allstars game. This kid is a gamer. I can see why he wasnt drafted. he doesnt look fluid moving around at all but he just make plays and whacks people.

  • SnB Defense

    24,

    The only way Shields stays is if the Raiders are willing to cut Walker:

    “The D-HB”: – Lock
    Schilens – Lock
    JLH – Lock
    Murphy – Lock
    Walker – ????
    Shields – ???? / Practice Squad
    Holland – Cut
    Watkins – Cut
    Miller – Cut/Practice Squad

  • holla4LosT

    Ottocrat,

    Barbieri sucks…he doesn’t even come to his show prepared…he ripped the pick of Mitchell and kept saying “they could’ve taken him the 7th round” even when everyone now knows that the Bears wanted him at pick 47…

    Total idiot!

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    me and my mom are going to the opening game this year might see some of you guys ill be the black kid in the wheelchair with dreads

  • 24

    SnB – I think totally different. Its all about competition. The Raiders picked 3 DE/LB’s. Its all about competition. Just because Murphy was drafted, doesn’t guarentee him a spot. For all we know, Schilens loses out because we don’t know what the coaching staff is going to see or how its going to play out. Al Davis obviously didn’t feel very comfortable about the WR position even though he talked highly of Higgins and Schilens (smokescreen). Despite having those 2 guys and drafting a 1st Round WR, he went ahead and got Murphy. I think Murphy got drafted because he was the best available on their board at that time.

    THIS IS TOTALLY UNACEPTABLE!!!!!!! How the hell can these guys crack up like that and then have the kid on the show?!

    ^^^^^^
    Chris Carter is an unprofessional piece of crap and so is everyone else on BSPN!

    If it would have been the Pats or Steelers they would have loved the pick of DHB and Mitchell.

    DHB and Mitchell should use the negativity as motivation and prove them all wrong!

  • SnB Defense

    R8rpaver,

    The offensive game plan is straight forward, just like invading Russia….pound them on the ground while dropping bombs from the air.

    Its the defensive plan that is classified……we have to realize the enemy will hit back…..I hope Marshall and Board know what they are doing

  • 24

    Frantz is the next Greg Biekert.

  • holla4LosT

    Tight End Zach Miller drafted by the Jaguars…

  • chargerschoke

    What needs to be proposed to the entire ESPN broadcasting & analyst crew is a charity boxing event of Athletes -VS- ESPN , have it staged in San Fran or LA , get DHB and a few of our LBs in the event and I know they’ll have some fun, someone email the proposal to Jim Rhome, I guarantee his couch coach azz will not air the email on his show!

    R8,

    LMAO,

    Men are hunters and providers in nature, you can’t really change that.

    I never respected life, creatures, and others the same as I do now.
    Not just because of my daughter, but also developed mercy for the helpless animals and creatures in general.

    I hope that isn’t the offensive game plan.

    Cable needs to mix up the offensive playcalling just like he did when he took over least year and owned the Ponies at home, and scored points against Houston and Tampa….however he needs to execute against the better teams.

    16,

    If I’m lucky enough, maybe I will see and others this year up in Oakland.
    It’s my dream to watch a game there, this is the 1st time in 15 years that I can do that.

  • vegas raider

    Our defensive strategy: hope for holding penalties, fumbled snaps and dumb pass-happy coaches who will play into our strengths.

    To go 8-8 or 9-7, we are probably going to have to score 24+ points a game. I have confidence we can do it.

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    16,

    See you there, sorry .

    By the way, did you find out how to upload that rookie roster on Madden PS3??

  • chargerschoke

    The idiots at ESPN are so stupid , they actually said the vertical passing game no longer works! Well excuse me what the hell did the patsies do the last couple of years? Send Moss deep , if he wasn’t open they dropped it off to one of the other WRs mostly Welker, now they have Galloway and it will be the same this year, send Moss and/or Galloway deep , if they’re covered drop it off the Welker all over again. That’s what we’re gonna do next year, send DHB and/or Schilens deep , if they’re covered hit JLH or Murphy underneath or swing it out to McFadden, glory days are here!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ——————————–

    The one thing you have to remember with 4th and 5th WRs is that they’re needed to contribute on special teams. Just based on size, strength, durability I’d think Murphy will probably make a better option on special teams.

    However, my guess is that Javon Walker will show up unmotivated with a lackluster performance and both Murphy and Shields will have every chance to make the team while Walker is shown the door. If Walker does play hard though, I think Murphy is much more likely to stick, unless Shields goes crazy in preseason.

  • 24

    I think its funny how good ESPN thinks Merriman is. If he was a Raider, they would hate him. The guy was great when on steroids. Once he got caught, he got smaller and disappeared. Then he completely shredded his knee and now they’re still saying hes going to be back and greater than ever. Yeah…when hes back on steroids, he might be ok because he will be ignorant to the pain in his knee. To me, the guy will never be the same.

  • edward teach

    This whole “getting rid of guys because they were Kifin’s picks” is ridiculous.

    If we did that we’d have to get rid of Russell, McFadden, ZMiller, Bush, Higgins and Schilens as well.

    Please.

  • 24

    Well…the beauty of it is…Shields and Murphy will be battling for the 5th WR spot so maybe both of them will be completely irrelevant. Who knows?

  • chargerschoke

    Stats are deceiving , Shields was hurt most of his last year in college.

    16,

    Tell the guys here what game you going to, and I’m sure these guys will show you a good time there since this will be your 1st time.

    You can tailgate then watch the game.
