Talked with Lt. Brian McGovern of the Napa Police Department, who said there has been no change in the case in which a 41-year-old assistant coach was hospitalized after an altercation with another coach.
Let’s see, there was the Tom Cable vs. Randy Hanson story, then the loss of wide receiver Chaz Schilens to a broken foot, followed by an embarrassing practice beatdown at the hands of their crossbay rivals, the San Francisco 49ers.
All things Raider are up for discussion at noon, Pacific time . . .
Just a reminder that we want you to join us at noon when Jerry McDonald will be here to answer your Raiders questions as part of our weekly live chat.
The Raiders’ offense may not have gotten even with the 49ers during Wednesday’s second practice session, but gave a measured, physical and professional account of itself without feeling the need to retaliate.
That the Raiders would bring back Rashad Baker, a productive special teams player and safety last season, is no surprise.
First, let’s head straight for some perspective.
The Raiders passing offense was embarrassed by the 49ers defense Wednesday, and they stood taller in admitting it afterward then they did on the field in taking it.
It was planned weeks ago between coaches Tom Cable and Mike Singletary, but the opening team sessions between the Raiders and 49ers Tuesday afternoon symbolized what will be important as Oakland will be forced to begin the season without the services of wide receiver Chaz Schilens.
What will the Raiders do in the wake of Chaz Schilens’ injury? How do some of their individual matchups with the 49ers look?
Get answers to those questions and more on Thursday at noon PDT from Jerry McDonald in our Raiders live chat.
