    I don’t know if a single DT is going to help that much. Still think they’re missing the big thumping run-stuffer in the middle at linebacker. But there’s no one on the roster like that.

    time to bring back MLB Frantz Joseph and cut SS Jerome Boyd?

    The Napa, Calif., police department plans to question Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable about his alleged role in a skirmish that left assistant coach Randy Hanson with a broken bone in his face.

    A department spokesperson said Wednesday that Cable would be interviewed as part of the ongoing investigation in the near future, but a date was not specified.

    The department has been contacted by NFL security and said it is cooperating with the league, the spokesperson said.

    Hanson was hospitalized following the Aug. 5 attack that he told police was initiated by a member of the Raiders coaching staff at the team’s training camp hotel in Napa. According to reports, Cable attacked Hanson during a meeting with some of the team’s defensive coaches.

    Last week, Cable said “nothing happened.”

    “When all the facts come out, everything will be fine,” he said.

    Hanson has spoken to Napa police and has not been seen at Raiders camp since the incident. The case was initially closed and then reopened Friday when Hanson agreed to cooperate with authorities.

    “Hanson’s future with the team is currently being addressed,” a Raiders executive said Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, Hanson has retained an attorney specializing in employment law, potentially signaling yet another lawsuit for team owner Al Davis, who’s already locked in a legal battle with former Oakland coach Lane Kiffin.

    I just don’t understand how Richochet and others can dismiss the Jamarcus TD to Murphy, as just a blown coverage.

    It wasn’t a “blown” coverage. That is when a guy is completely wide open, like when a DB releases a guy on the sidelines and the Safety never comes over (think us in the Ravens game last year).

    This was a zone that had a hole, every zone has little pockets, in the opposite corner of the end zone. The Defense called for a perfect laser of a pass in the corner to beat them, and that’s what he did. The DB’s played a little off becuase I think they thought there is no way he can get the ball in their that accurately and quickly, but he did. Caught them, one a Pro Bowler, on their heels a little bit.

    Was it a bad defensive play? Yes, but good QB’s take advantage of misplays and make teams pay, and bad QB’s let the defense get away with it.
    ===============================
    You need to look at it again.
    OBVIOUSLY Clements released Murphy.
    Roman, instead of drifting over, drifted towards the middle of the field, then realized to get back.

    Murphy was WIDE OPEN..and “perfect laser of a pass’?? lol..are you serious? The defender was 10 FEET OFF OF THE DEFENDER WHEN THE DEFENDER CAUGHT THE BALL..I could have made that pass..you maybe could have made that pass..my daughter definitely could.
    Sorry to burst your bubble, but the only ones..I emphasize the ONLY ones who are saying that wasn’t blown coverage is raider fans who are embarrassed that that freeby is the only thing the Raiders starting offense mustered.
    Every sports cast.every newspaper article..all the same..blown coverage.

    Reality bites sometimes.

    You know..like hearing your new improved D line, THE STARTERS, with your new asst coaches was completely owned by the Niners BACKUPS.

    With John Wade still out, Raiders could could be interested in C-G Duke Preston, cut by Packers. They had talks in the offseason.

    ^^^^^^^Who gives a crap about that now….

    This team (and especially the defense) need to play with a chip on their shoulders and with a freakin closer game instinct!

    Next years draft better be on a pass rushing DE beast DE, a beast of a run stuffing DT, a beast MLB and on a RT/RG.

    Richochet,

    Jamarcus threw the ball from the 31 yard line, Murphy was a few yards in the end zone, and it was from close to one hashmark to the sideline on the other side of the field. The ball traveled close to 40 yards in the air, with a tight spiral, little arc, and almost hit Murphy between the 1 and the 8 on his jersey. You let me know when you and your daughter can start doing that.

    DKnight007,

    You can’t be serious…who cares about the HC possible being arrested and suspended?

    Seems pretty relevant to the 2009 Oakland Raiders in my estimation. Then again, Al Davis doesn’t put much stock in coaches, so he probably isn’t too worried. But I think it is worth keeping an eye on don’t you agree DK?

    ^^^^^^Yeah I know…but next year there shouldn’t be any excuses.

    The WR, CB, S, RB, TE, LT, LG, WLB, are all filled.

    The old crazy better do the right thing instead of doing the weird odd thing…

  • PassTheCheetos

    i hope we draft another running back in the first round. in my opinion a four headed monster is much scarier than a three headed monster.

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com Silver-n-Black666

    I have a feeling that trade we made to NE in the second round when they took Ron Brace is going to haunt us for years to come.

    We should have drafted Ron Brace not traded with the Cheatriots.

    ^^^^^^Huh?

    He has shown more consistent effort and drive than that big worthless Turd who is making too much money for doing nothin. Too bad Warren doesn’t bring it every play like Boschetti.

  • Brien the General

    The three head monster is a joke. You need a two man roation with a scatback as the 3rd RB for carries and a few catches every now and then. This 3 headed attack is stupid. This is the NFL guys

  • http://cosmicdanceband.com Silver-n-Black666

    This was my joke last year but I will recycle it for this occasion.

    How we should draft

    1st round DT

    2nd round MLB

    3rd round LT/RG

    4th round RG/LT

    Etc.

    Here is how Al will draft

    1st round fastest guy no matter what position he plays

    2nd round WR

    3rd round DB

    4th round another real fast guy

    5th round Hussian Bolt

    We basically gave them Ron brace, hated that move to the max……

  • Thec07

    Thats why we should trade fargas, garcia, and morrison
    for picks. Unless we get a good run stuffing LB after
    cuts its going to be swiss cheese….

  • lefty12

    wasn’t it Jim Mora who said-you think you know but you really don’t.

  • AZ Raider

    Only problem is Morrison is the only guy with any value. All know Fargas and Garcia are going to be released if DMAC, BUSH and RUSSELL are successful this season.

  • http://blstb.msn.com/i/55/90A2853B6CFBCC2AFC987BB18B832.jpg vegas raider

    Al’s been pretty good of late with his later round picks, he just stinks the first two rounds.

    Myers, Shanessey, Murphy, Norris…..that’s pretty good for later round production.

    We just need to tell Al to sleep in on Saturday and I would be comfortable just taking the highest guy on Kiper Jr’s board the first two rounds and than let Al do his thing in the later rounds.

  • Brien the General

    Ron Brace didnt have raider speed. He wasn’t a 1st round waste like Warre. We want fake NTs who can only rush the passer and not play run defense

    I would imagine the later rounds are left to the few professionals on staff.

    Fuk Brace. Over rated because of who he played along side.

    great line by Greg Papa after the whiners kicked their FG for the only points they scored on our 1 and 2 team players-apparently M.Singletary thinks his kicker needs practice kicking xtra points.lmao

    Can’t believe “trade” and “Morrison” are even being typed by my own fingers… Move him outside if he can’t stuff the middle! Damn… I want to stop the run, but I get attached to some Raiders and The Capn is one of them along with…

    Shhhh, no one tell Al that round 1 of the draft is now Thursday night and rounds 2 and 3 are Friday night….I’ll dress in a silver and black suit and sneak in and make the picks for the first three rounds (all DT, DEs and LBers) and then when Al’s weird brother shows up on Saturday, he can handle rounds 4-7.

    This is false to the max! Raji benefited from playing next to Brace. If you dont know Brace can play all along the dline in the 3-4 as he has in NE. He drew the double teams against the run while in BC. Raji was the UT and better pass rusher while Brace was the run stuffer. I glad you think New England actually wastes time with overrated players. Great observation
