Who’s missing at Wednesday OTA


As the Raiders completed stretching and broke into position groups for drills, the following players were not present:

P Ricky Schmitt, QB Jeff Garcia, P Shane Lechler, PK Sebastian Janikowski, WR Arman Shields, QB Andrew Walter, RB Justin Fargas, FS Hiram Eugene, S Mike Mitchell, FB Oren O’Neal, DE Derrick Burgess, WR Javon Walker, DT Terdell Sands, DE Jay Richardson.

WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) was on the field running through drills with the receivers, and DT Gerard Warren (pectoral) was also suited up.

This doesn’t preclude the possibility of some players appearing from the locker room after this post . . . will check in later.

  • I’m calling it right now…based on this OTA, Russell is going to the HOF!!!!

    not really,Dakota.let Barnes and Henderson both get reps there before deciding who starts and who might have to move.

  • Lefty, you might be right…keep the pressure on Henderson until the preseason and then move Barnes to RT?

    Thomas Howard can’t hold end zone pick, second time he’s read a Russell goal line pass

  • 4evaRaider

    DHB is running fine. Not fast, there isn’t room to go far in red zones. Hiram Eugene still out at FS.

    Andrew Walter should have been traded/released after they drafted Russell and brought in Culpepper AND McCown.

    Walter deserves a chance to continue his career somewhere and the Raiders are foolishly tying up a roster spot on this guy.

    Did the Raiders need 4 QBs in 2007? Could the Raiders not have used a veteran prescence last year to help Russell through the regular season?

    Davis pulled this similiar b.s with LaMont Jordan and Dominic Rhodes. Afraid they were going to a division contender when the Raiders themselves were way out of contention. Could have given Bush a few starts at teh end of that season…who knows…could have changed the draft strategy in 2008.

    Davis has to focus on winning games. I don’t see how keeping Walter in pergatory helps that.


    Well said SNB! The way the crucified Walters under the Art Shell era probably took about three years off of this kids game. It was painful to watch what that kid went through man. He is getting paid but he deserves better. You know if he was in New England, I hate to say it, he would most likely be a great back up QB.

    To sthis day it sickens me to see what they have dne to Michael Bush. This guy should be getting touches every week. If we let Bush go he will get 1200+ yards a game easy on any other team except the Lions. If Bush goes to the Donkeys I will puke!

  • DHB Dropped another pass!!

  • Never miss an opportunity Oakglenn.

  • Cut him now!!!
    He was a reach!!!
    He dropped too many balls in OTAs!!

    I’m playing!! Some are not!!

  • DMAC

    Hey O
    Was he wide open?

  • 4evaRaider

    2B fair DHB is going against Nnamdi or CJ man this kid is gonna be great practing against the BEST!!!,imo
