    The question is, are we better off having Nnamdi taking out one side of the field or should he take out the opponents best WR?.

    That would take some time to ponder, but right off the bat I say playing the field is better, keeping Nnamdi glued to one guy would limit his value as teams could use their best guy as a decoy to keep Nnamdi busy, but with 21 hanging out on the right side, they just don’t throw it that way, the field gets shorter and the offense has less space to throw as most teams simply will not challenge 21’s area, that’s less ground to cover for the LB’s and the rest of the DB’s.


    True, but isn’t the left side more valuable against a right-handed QB?

    Yes. LCB is more valuable.

    With contracts hard to come by in San Diego, LB Shawne Merriman looks like odd man out

    NICE post BSL 550!!!

  • Mistabrown

    Actually Raider O was talking about pass rush. Priest was just serving koolaid on how great we are going to be (year after year). OakGlenn is irrelevant.

    I see there was a pass-rush argument going on last night between priest, mista and oakglenn…

  • 4evaRaider

    U 2 Hwnrdr!!!

  • Mistabrown

    So who has been racking up ALL these sacks in recent years?

    Jay Richardson?
    Tyler Brayton?

    Burgess had 1 good season. Our pass rush sucks. You can look at all the stats you want I watch the game and see little or no pressure.

  • NoMoreFargas

    TonyG is what 250+ thas asking a lot to cover next to mackey and ditka the best TE ever so I’ll let nhamdi slide on that one. And Sharpe,WinslowI,Gates don’t make it cause they never block.

  • 4evaRaider

    2B fair with Nnamdi,most of T.G’s yards came on “out” patterns.He used the side-line 2 his advantage because he knew Nnamdi was ready everywhere else

  • Raider Dell

    Some of you guys won’t have Nancy Gay or Gwen Knapp to kick around for their articles about the Raiders.

    Both received buyouts from the Chron and will seek jobs else where, in fact Nancy Gay was hired to report for the fanhouse.

    Also my best to Michelle Smith, who also received a buyout, she covered Stanford sports and did a excellent job and will be sorely missed.

  • Good riddance to Nancy! Fanhouse is trash.

  • NoMoreFargas

    Nancy and Gwen both suck that’s why the chronicle is rated so low with their awful sports page, BSJ right Fanhouse is garbage.

    Mornin’ guys,
    Bo the saying is “the early bird who first drinks the Mezcale gets the worm”
    that’s why I sleep in, I hate Mezcale!!
    -80’s is what everyone else today are either sampling or remaking…no one is really original these days!!!
    You’re right, they are even remaking ‘The Alien’ movie AND ‘Total Recall’ because hollywood is imaginatively bankrupt!!

    Thankfully they are not actually going to “remake” Alien, they are doing a prequel to Alien…so at least they won’t be messing with a classic.

  • I might stomach that movie, Dakota.
    I really like Phillip K Dick. They could go many different directions with Total Recall because the short story was only 8 pages long.

  • Total Recall was okay…didn’t knock my socks off. Have you ever seen the original Solaris? The Russian movie? Caught it on IFC a couple of weeks ago and then watched George Clooney’s remake…the original was much better.

  • Solaris? Yeah, but I could sit there that long, was it 3 hrs? PDK is the sci-fi author that has the most movies made after his books. Battle Star G (new series) was the best PDK show not written by him.
    They butchered Minority report.

  • They are remaking the 1980’s classic Red Dawn with Russia and China invading the US…same deal with the high school kids hiding in the mountains…maybe it will win an Oscar for showing the plight of insurgents?

  • Good morning Nation.

    Dakota, TW,

    They should remake Robo cup, the 1st didn’t have a real budget.

  • OAKlifer

    wow I was in a meeting and get back to see no raider chatting and still no Double R, hope his lakers winnign the series comment didnt get him strung up among his fellow raider fans!!!lol

    Congrats to the mamba Dakota he will get his this year!!

  • I use to wear a Robo cup for protection.

  • OAKlifer

    They should remake Robo cup, the 1st didn’t have a real budget.

    they should remake kindegarten cop!!!!
    the first one didnt have an “govener” LOL

  • They should remake Allien, but leave Alliens alone. That movie was great!!

  • TW,

    I’ve never really been into sci-fi books. I love the movies, but just never got into the books…I’m probably missing out. When I was a kid I did read about the first 25 Star Trek Next Generation books, and I read a couple of the Alien books…oh, I read all of Arthur C. Clarks space odyssey books too. Mainly I now read historical fiction, horror, and thrillers.

  • Cop, sorry!!!



  • Dakota, PDK is out there. The good thing about him is he wrote mostly short stories 20-50 pages.

  • No problem O. My Robo cup could sense when my balls sweat & would dry & powder them. lol

  • I was thinking of my cup of hot milk, I don’t drink Coffee!! No caffeine for me!!!

    You don’t want to see me on Caffeine!!!

  • TW,

    Dude, sick!!!!

  • 4evaRaider

    Oaklifer just plain old OAK-wood.And I’m always ready 4 a new recipe shoot it

  • lol TW.

  • Wrangler BBQ Pit on El Cajon Blv in El Cajon city is great!!!
    If you come to San Diego, you should try it.

  • Slow morning.

  • Since it’s dead in here, maybe I should share my political views!!!!!!

    I’m playing!! lol

  • PDK’s Blade Runner is one of my favorite PDK movie. Screamers/Next/Minority Report/Imposter/Scanner Darkly/Paycheck/Total Recall all PDK short stories or books.

  • Or share my views, after some caffeine!!!

  • I like Next.

  • Have a Red Bull & Jaegermiester & spew forth brother! lol

  • It’s called a Bullmiester, grow hair on your toenails!!!

  • I didn’t like minority report, but I’m not a fan of TC. I don’t like his movies. I liked the story.

  • There’s nothing worse than a hyper drunk!

  • O have you watched Battle star Galactica?

  • Red Bull!!!!! That will kill me!!!

    I did try it once, with Vodka!!! No sir,not again!!

  • The classic battlestar was great when I was a kid…I haven’t watched the new series, but I heard it is great too…

  • Hyper Drunk!!! That was me!!!

  • TW,

    No, when it comes to Sci Fi, I watch more Anime.
    You can do more, you know!!

  • The new BSG explored the PDK theme of when does a machine(android) start becoming human & when does a human become machine/mindless automation. They explored the use of torture on the Cylons. Claiming they’re not human, then the Cylons acted more human than the soliders.

  • OAKlifer
