    MR’s new lyric’s of Rick Springfield’s early 80s hit

    Jeffrey is a friend,
    Yeah I know he’s been a good friend of mine
    But lately something’s changed
    It ain’t hard to define
    Jeffrey’s got himself a girl
    And I want to make him mine
    And he’s watching him with those eyes
    And he’s lovin’ her with that body, I just know it!
    And she’s holding him in her arms late, late at night

    You know I wish that I was Jeffrey’s girl
    I wish that I had Jeffrey’s girl
    Where can I find her, a QB like that?

    I’ll play along with this charade
    That doesn’t seem to be a reason to change
    You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
    I wanna tell him that I love but the point is probably moot
    ‘Cause he’s watching her with those eyes
    And he’s lovin’ her with that body, I just know it!
    And she’s holding him in her arms late, late at night

    You know I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
    I wish that I was Jessie’s girl
    Where can I find him, a Qb like that?

    Like Jeff Garbage-cia
    I wish that I was Jeffrey’s girl
    Where can I find him, a Qb…
    Where can I find him, a Qb like that?

    And I’m lookin’ in the mirror all the time
    Wonderin’ what he don’t see in me
    I’ve been funny; I’ve been cool with the lines
    Ain’t that the way love’s supposed to be?
    Tell me why can’t I find a Qb like that?

    You know I wish that I was Jeffrey’s girl
    I wish that I was Jeffrey’s girl
    Where can I find him, a Qb like that?

    Like Jeff Garbage-cia
    I wish that I had Jeffrey’s girl
    I want, I want Jeff Garbage-cia

  • Pale Rider

    Slade Norris????????

  • RaiderNsuede

    Jerome Boyd and SLade Norris will be on the practice squad.

  • IndianaRaider

    so much for drafting two stud DE/LB to help us with depth. Both failed to even make the team, wasted draft picks. Thanks Tom and AL.

  • RaiderNsuede

    Like I said Boyd, Norris will be on practice squad for sure!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Nick Miller survived? wow

  • Pale Rider

    Norris may be claimed…

  • stubblebuzz

    hoe WRs are they keeping? Seven???

  • RaiderNsuede

    There still will be more cuts to come within the next few days.

  • Sign Pollard!!!
    Bears just cut Marcus Freeman!!!
    Sign him!!!!
    He can play SAM or Mike!!!!!
    Sign him please!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    the John Bowie scholarship continues …

    who said Huff would be cut?

    IDIOTS!!!

  • Brien the General

    Todd Watkins made the squad too

  • Cut Sam Williams & sign Marcus Freeman!!!
    Cut & Sign!!

  • stubblebuzz

    so exasperated i can’t type. are they moving Nick Miller to olb or what?

  • RaiderNsuede

    we cut 4 LB’s we are signing someone.

  • Brien the General

    Huff deserves to be cut. Another scholarship is honored by Al and company

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Hooray for Louis Rankin! Maybe a trade is brewing…

    Slade Norris got cut. Perhaps next year we will stay away from these tweeners and just draft a guy that plays the position.

    Jasper Brinkley anyone!

  • IndianaRaider

    this cant be the right 53 man team, 4 RB and 7 WR?

  • FREE PALESTINE

    Now, who has to go to make room for Waiver claims?

  • Marcus Freeman from OSU!!!!
    Sign him!!!!
    6’1 240 LB!!!!

    Sign Him!!!!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    I think I am keeping Justin Miller over John Bowie

    *****************************

    Has to be but wouldnt it be just like Al to trade the wrong RB…….like Bush?

  • Brien the General

    Bowie is fast SnB, dont you know that?

  • Free Palestine!!!

    I love it!!!!!

    Free Palestine!!!!

  • Sign Pollard, Marcus Freeman, and I will not ask for anything else!!!!!!!!

    Please sign them 2 now!!!

  • My biggest suprise would be Watkins over Holland. I liked Holland, he played well this preseason, and is more of a ST contributor than Watkins.

    Justin Miller lost his job Thursday night. When Nick Miller returned a kickoff 50+ yards while Justin was getting burnt all over the field on D, about sealed his fate.

  • armond

    hell yeah id take pollard. ran down dmc and probably helped give him that turf toe. also fukked up brady in the opener. id take him just for that.

  • Twocents

    I think two are missing. Probably Watkins and Schmitt.

  • phantrik

    Glad to see NMiller and Rankin make it and unfortunately I think SWilliams may be the best option at SAM which hurts me to say 🙁 I think the last decent player at that position was Romanowksi??? Alston seems to small and not physical enough and still not sold on Brown either. This year so far makes me think its going to be the defense thats lacking behind the offense. So are we carrying 3 TE? And how many DL?

    Win Lose or Tie… Raiders till I die!

  • RaiderNsuede

    Watkins holland bot played well in special teams. Between those two its a tough call.

  • IndianaRaider

    Walker-Chaz-DHB-Murphy-Higgins-Watkins-N.Miller

    Fargas-Bush-McFadden-Rankin-O’neal

    interesting…..

  • Brien the General

    I like Watkins more than little ass miller

  • El Tato

    I prefer Holland over Miller and Watkins at WR.

    I hope we can keep Norris and Boyd in the practice squad.

    NICE job getting DEs Sulak & Norris to play LB, NICE JOB.

    Our 4th CB is John Bowie.

    Sam Williams again? This makes me wonder why I am a Raider fan.

    Bernard Pollard can be an excellent player for us (Mitchell hasn’t been on the field yet)

  • armond

    we wont keep 7 wrs. something will happen and i do like the idea of getting freeman from osu. norris will be on the ps if he doesnt get picked up. williams must have been good on st cuz he just wont get cut. wait i know, this the gm guy al was talkin about!! we shouldve known!

  • armond

    we shouldnt get mad at ol sammie. if you got to choose between cutting yourself and another guy wouldnt u choose the other guy too?

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Brien,

    Yeah, wouldn’t surprise me if some twisted logic created a Bush trade. Never know. Its clear they LOVE…Lovedy, Lovedy, Lovedy Love them some Justin Fargas!

  • armond

    we cut guys that we didnt like and guys we felt could pass thru waivers. a few teams have 7 wrs i believ. we will pick a lb or 2 before its done. holliday signed with denver.

    ***********************

    When I was atthe bar afterthe Dallas game a few weeks a ago…a guy from Stockton who grew up with Rankin said he would make the team and they would trade Bush. I told him that would be the dumbest fucking thing ever and we would deserve to lose

  • FREE PALESTINE

    Isn’t Lawton purely a blocking fullback? We already have o’neal back, why not keep Russell as a FB/RB??

  • Timmah

    Or just no one wants fargas. Which is probably the case.

  • omniscience

    I am satisfied considering our lack of depth on this team Watkins is a suprise 7 wides will use him on special teams Cut Sands good Miller was being used at DB N. Miller will fill his kickoff/punt duties also Need to pick up some DB help kept Bowie that is all we got Wanted Baker guess he is hurt NIXON,NORRIS,REECE,HOLLAND Practice squad I like this squad I heard bringing in Boone DE from KC also matbe Crowder DE From Denver

  • silvernblack209

    lawton, is a good special teams player, I saw news that were signing DT boone.

  • omniscience

    This looks like a Cable team Not a AL team young hustle players again with what we got Garcia cut old Fargas was kept for leadership who else we got this will be his last year think he won the Courage award last 2 years given by teammates? Kept Rankin N.Miller,Bryant,Meyers All new Young blood good to see as far as Huff,Bowie S. Willams we have know body better…

  • Chris in NY

    The first 6 guys on that list will be on the practice squad if they don’t get picked up.

  • R4iDER_831

    dam so if jeff garcia is cut…. that means imma have to start russell when i play madden 10 online..F**k!!!

  • Raiderhays

    CR*P!!! Stanford Routt made the cut? The guy couldn’t cover a sleeping baby with a blanket.
