Where’s Seymour? Not in Alameda

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, September 7th, 2009 at 11:50 am in Oakland Raiders.

No sign of defensive lineman Richard Seymour, acquired for a first-round draft pick in 2011.

A few players quietly inquired as to whether there was any news about Seymour reporting.

“He’s got to get here,” one player said. “We need him. I don’t care if he’s mad. Maybe that will make him play even better.”

Coach Tom Cable will be available following practice.

The Raiders signed Roy Schuenig, cut by the St. Louis Rams, to the practice squad. He was a teammate at Oregon State with fellow practice squadder Slade Norris and has operated in a zone blocking scheme.

More to come later . . .

    Seymour better show soon, and the raiders should sign Meredith 2nd round talent taken in the 5th and released by the packers

    ahh boy ..here we go with the circus

    Chris Mortensen is reporting that he has spoken to over 10 league sources who all claim that there is NO WAY Seymour is worth a 1st round pick. I love how these “journalists” all use “unnamed league sources” as their source.

    So…if Seymour does not report do we get our #1 back?

    You know… Al’s 80… He knows full well he may not bearound much longer and his son probably wants nothing to do with the team when he’s gone… So, sign Seymour (like he signed ROMO back when the Raiders were competitive) and roll the dice. He’s obviously not shy about paying the guy if he produces (Right Nnamdi?)but they can’t force Seymour to show up – and that would be a bummer… For the team’s spirit, for the fans and would just give yet more ammo to the Raider Haters who think it’s just one big circus in Alameda… to which we all know is getting tougher and tougher to defend…

    These journalist are a joke. Everyone seems to have some axe to grind about the trade EXCEPT the Raiders (and most of their fans). What does that tell ya?

    They simply can’t believe the Raiders did it and don’t want to even think about how good the Raiders can be. They simply don’t want the Raiders to shine.

    Then I want those same league sources to tell me if Seymour is worth more than a Mike Williams, Ryan Leaf and all the other 1st round bust or average players in the league?

    They’re perception of value is darn near retarded. They’ll much rather take the risk and draft a play that has a less than 5% chances of ever reaching Seymour’s stature (HOF) than just take the real deal. Its that simple!

    I hope Seymour not reporting is due to Rick Ross not wanting to fork over that #93.

  • Terrapin

    Of course I’m assuming he still has gas left in the tank – I hope

  • 504 Raider

    Des Bryant please request another number. He took Turd’s #90.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Richard Seymour needs to talk to his wife, children, family, make arrangements for travel, housing, schooling, school year just about to start, if not already in his district/private school, he needs to finalize multiple important issues with his attorney & agent; therefore I am confident he will show up practice and play for the Raiders; after all he is already slotted to start. Family first. Welcome to the Raider Nation, Mr. Richard Seymour.

  • 504 Raider

    Speaking of numbers, Is it me or does Gerard Warren wearing #61 look like he should be wearing a leather helmet with no face mask? I swear everytime I see him in a play I have a flashback to my old 13″ black and white TV with the hanger antenna and foil tips.

  • SC

    Everyone relax,

    Seymour is in the process of signing long term. He’ll be here soon. It’s just details.

    Dumb raider fans on here are such an embarrasment that they make the Niner fans look like harvard grads!!..The stupid fans in the eastbay are so uneducated that it brings me to tears everytime I read a post supporting trades, draft choices & any other news about the raiders scouting department which is the WORST in all of professional sports!!!!

    The Raiders will go 0-16 mark it here first.

    The Raiders will be good when Al davis passes & they get new ownership & a great GM & coach

  • Braveheartraider

    The team’s credability is low as is, so he’d better show. Makes you wonder what Moss said to him. You got to figure if he was getting traded we would not be his first choice.
    Stopping the run was always a priority this year but we ignored it in the draft. A safety in the second round was never the answer no matter how good he turns out to be.
    IMO good teams are built through the draft and augmented with good free agents. We’re at least a couple of years from winning and by that time Seymour’s about finished.
    I really hope I’m wrong but I got a bad feeling about this one.

  • priesttj

    T’pin, and everyone else don’t let this stuff get to you. It’s almost laughable when you hear some of these fools try to spin this in some negative light. One talkshow host even said he feels sorry for Raider fans over this trade.

    In their minds Belichik is infallible he couldn’t possibly have done this, Al Davis can’t possibly have pulled this off. As you said it’s popping their skulls, that this could happen and the Raiders get the bettr of the deal. So the spin it and spin it and spin it. Buit the bottom line is the Raiders got a probowl calibre Dlineman for 1 1st rnd pick which coud end up beig anything.

    Wha they don’t know is that Bill Belichik and Mr Davis are old friends and Mr Davis has helped Bill and now Bill has returned the favor. He gave Randy Moss to Bill and in return Bill knowing he was going to lose Seymour gave him to Mr Davis.

    All you have to do is look at the # of trades they have made in recent years to know they trust each other. Or else there is NO WAY the Raiders get this player for only a 1st……….period

    Seymour I do believe is struggling with the trade having talked to Randy Moss but this is the nature of the business. When he stops and looks at the roster or takes into consideration the young talent on this team he may feel much different.

Either be a leader or follower or stay out of the way. To say Raiders are going 0-16 shows that you possibly are the dumbest person in America you useless tool. The secret to success in football and any other sport is attitude. The raiders need to get rid of bad attitude players and we need to get rid of bad attitude fans. Just get lost you born loser.

    Now why would Seymour be mad? He’s coming to a team that’s improving! Sure, it’s the worst team in football since 2003, but it’s improving! I think Seymour needs some face time with PriestTJ.

    ………..

    Moss didn’t have to say anything to him. It’s common knowledge what goes on here. Even the fans know it…well, the ones who aren’t in denial. Seymour just got sent to NFL Siberia.

  • priesttj

    No fan likes to hear that a player doen’t want to come to their team, but that is a fat of life. Players do not like to be traded especially going from a winner to a losing situation. It takes a minute to digest But once assesses the situaion and understands what’s really going on instead of all the rumors he’ll be OK.

    As bad as the Raiders have been do you think anyone of them would like going to Detroit?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    I can tell you guys what might even add insult to injury in Seymour’s mind. It’s one thing to get sent to the Raiders, which is the worst thing that can happen to you in today’s NFL if you value winning over an easy paycheck. But what’s worse is that Seymour knows he is now the scapegoat for our run defense. Being here will hurt his value. He’s expected to be THE run defense here. One guy. He knows that’s not possible, as anyone with a brain knows it’s not possible. So when the season’s done and we’re the worst run defense in football, guess who’s going to be the culprit?

  • Braveheartraider

    Seymour is an great player, no doubt. It would/will be great to have him as a Raider. I just think Cable might be the guy to get us to the top again and I’d be happier if he could keep the draft picks for the re-build. After all we will eventually have a new owner/GM, one who doesn’t call the shots, draft the players, or trade away the picks.
    That’s in the not to distant future. This team can grow together and in a couple of years we could be winners again. Seymour will/would add some respect and talent. We would win more games with him on the team-but not that many. A 6 & 10 season becomes an 8 and 8.
    I woulda kept what we have including the pick.

  • GalacticGus

    Randy Moss is being a cock blocker little b i t ch!

    that would be a dream come true if we get in the playoffs and we meet the Pats in the playoffs and we run all over them because their run D is not as good as it used to be …but they compensate with their offense. However in that game we take away their deep completions so they got to dink and dunk, because we got Namdi shutting down Moss all game and when he does make a catch over the middle… BAM, Mitchell making the big devastating hit on em.
    Also, Our run game will be superior and will have enough to keep their run game around or under 100 yds. thats all we need.

    it would be Poetic justice. MOss will never wear a superbowl ring.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Priest, you’re wrong. I guarantee you any player who values winning over an easy paycheck would choose Detroit over us. In a second. Detroit’s made moves. Changed their upper management. That Kiffin debacle blew the lid off of Alameda. The Gruden debacle was enough of an eye opener, but the Kiffin thing was the final dagger. It’s common knowledge now that Oakland will never have a cohesive environment geared toward winning with Al Davis in charge.

    MR #39 is a dumb post. You take a top 5 run defense, put him in, and it plummets to 32, you can blame him. You take a 32 run defense and it does not improve, no one is going to blame Seymour. Unless they are the same gap toothed idiots that blame Obama for the current state of the economy.

    How about saying you disagree instead of being such a cock? You should be used to people disagreeing with you by now.

    Show some class. I may not always agree with you but that’s it. I would never do what you did yesterday, hiding behind a keyboard to completely disrespect someone’s dead mother. Just totally classless. No matter how much I despise someone I would never act in such a way.
