Ice Cube in Alameda, Nnamdi a spectator

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 at 11:41 am in Oakland Raiders.

O’Shea Jackson, or the artist better known as Ice Cube, was a spectator at Raiders practice Tuesday.

CEO Amy Trask said he is working on a few projects with the club.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is not practicing, and emerged from the facility to the field not in uniform. Also not practicing were cornerback/return specialist Justin Miller (turf toe), running back Justin Fargas (hamstring), safety Rashad Baker (stinger) and safety Michael Huff (quad).

Center John Wade, who practiced for the first time since the Dallas game Monday and still in contention to start, according to Tom Cable was not with the offensive line as they went through drills.

Safety Mike Mitchell, who said he could be returning to practice with another good rehab session, was going through cone drills with a member of the athletic training staff. Kirk Morrison (elbow) was also working to the side.

Returning to practice was linebacker Slade Norris (calf).

Ice Cube has been working on a documentary on the Los Angeles Raiders for ESPN detailing their influence in hip hop culture.

    Bo, I can’t wait for the NBA season to start…I am pumped! Healthy Bynum, Phil back, Artest ready to lock ‘em down, Farmar biotching about playing time… come on October!!!!

    I think the Chargers are going to be a worse team than they were last year, even with SM back. I just don’t see Turner holding that team together for much longer.

    BTW, Danny Southwick’s birthday is 9/28. Get your shopping done early.

    RRS, DSmooth’s website is down while they update to reflect the big news (shhhhhh I’m not allowed to even say that).

    Southwick is gonna make Garcia look like an undersized, lisping scrub from the boondocks. Yes he’s that good.

    I don’t want our players watching the movie ‘Friday’ and getting any ideas!

    Why does everyone think Jeff Garcia is so awesome? He looks like your neighbors pesky little kid brother trying to play QB.

    Meanwhile, JaMarcus looks like Dolemite out there. He even has the fur coat to boot.

    JaMarcus = Dolemite

    “I got your “boy” hangin,’ you no-business, born insecure, jock-jawed, mothaf—ers!”

    Dakota, you read that Sasha is injured? He’s out from the Slovenian team for a few weeks with a knee injury. Tried tying a shoelace around i, but it didn’t help.

    I want Shannon Brown to get his minutes anyway.

    I was so frustrated watching that game when Walker went in for a play, they ran inside tackle, then called his # to come off the field. He was standing in the Hudle ready to rock, looked over at the sideline then pointed to himself like he was saying; “ME? I just got in here, and this guy can’t cover me!”.

    Needless to say I was bummed.

    JAVON WALKER COMBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR! (if he plays)

    9-7!

    17. Not sure Nick Miller makes the team eaither but he’s a try hard guy who can be valuable at WR and KR, BUT don’t forget, Tyvon Branch was supposed to be a good KR prospect too…

    ………………………………………………

    Only problem is Nick Miller also has shown he has the second best hands on the team next to Walker (and Schilens).

    Bo, I read that Sasha’s injures are not that serious and were just used as an excuse to cut him because he wasn’t right for that team…

    …I’d love to see him regain his 2008 form…it would add a lot to the team, but if not, then by all means play Brown.

    That’s how JaMarcus is going to introduce himself to San Diego on Sept. 14.

  • lefty12

    a couple of years ago leading up to the draft,many of us were begging for lineman.most on here said oh no,we need playmakers who can take it to the house and score from anywhere on the field.we need weapons for our $6o million QB.they kept saying we could get quality lineman lower in the draft,that we should take playmakers at the top.then AD goes out and drafts those weapons in the next 2 drafts.now,those same people are constantly biotching because we don’t use our 1st rd picks to shore up our lines.well,which is it,you can’t have it both ways.

  • DMunoz 26

    “The more money we come across, the more problems we see.” Ice Cube. Truer words have never been spoken.

  • Nnamdi21

    55. I hope so. I think they may start falling apart on their lines. Injuries will slow them at the half way point, but I expect them to be ready to kik azz opening night. We better get up for it.

    When will these Raiders learn its OK to be great?! Don’t play down to the BS!

  • AZ Raider

    Lefty,

    I keep saying it but no one listens. It takes many drafts to build a team from the ground up as we have been doing the last 3 years.

  • Nnamdi21

    79. Yup.

  • DMunoz 26

    Was that Diddy? My bad.

    Lefty, you are kidding right? Just because someone wants to draft a special talent like McFadden in round one of a draft doesn’t mean they don’t want the o-line and d-line addressed in the rest of that draft, let alone in the next draft.

    I screamed me head off for a DT in the 2008 draft…

    …you can have it both ways…pick the special players when they are available (McFadden) and pick players that fix the trenches when no special players are available at the top of the draft…you know, pick a Raji or Monroe over a DHB because he isn’t that special…get it?

  • Plunketthead = andrews mom

    Nice work Lifer

    This is the year we tack back the division.
    We beat the discharge on Monday night 28-27
    and we pummel the squaws and mules twice each.
    I bet we beat the cowbutts in Dallas also.
    Cable wins coach of the year!!

    Best year ever!!!

  • OAKlifer

    = ,

    I agree man we have yet to see this version of the raiders take the field in a regular season game…..

    maybe not best year ever..but best in the last few years!!! YES

    Doesn’t sound too serious. Lets frikkin hope so! Man we NEED him opening night!

    Besides Lefty, you leave out the fact that most of us wanted a certain LT or DE over McFadden, but we knew they weren’t going to be on the board when the Raiders made their selection….you remember that?

    The question was select the midgets Dorsey or Ellis, or select McFadden…good choice Al!

    Oaklifer, LMAO

  • DMunoz 26

    the Raiders are bound to go 0-16
    the most dysfunctional family that I ever have seen
    cant tackle cant catch cant passa the ball
    that old fuka mista Davis has seen it all
    but his time has passed and his team is wack
    anyone thinks they make the playoffs must be smokin crack
