Gallery coming along


Robert Gallery came in to the locker room on crutches, a bandage over a scar on his left leg where doctors inserted a steel plate and screws to repair a broken fibula.

He conceded he won’t play this week, but wouldn’t rule out next week.

He’s got the team’s medical staff to do that for him.

“They had to go through a bunch of muscle to get in there, but it’s not out of the question,” Gallery said. “ So it’s just when I can get moving around and obviously that bone is not a lot of weight bearing so that helps. Pretty much week to week, what they said. This week’s pretty much out, but I don’t think you can count out next week. But you never know. We won’t know until the end of the week.”

Will have updates from minimal locker room availability as well as Tom Cable’s press briefing (2 p.m. on the West Coast) later as well as updates on my Twitter page.

    UP Loco, New England has scouts in Oakville, and always picks up our trash, and turns them into treasure. It’s the NE way! That’s why they win so many games! Simple, we don’t develope our players to be winners anymore!

    Real MR,

    The root cause of all this mess is Al Davis. I don’t blame these coaches for taking the job. The job still pays $1 to $2 million. That’s real bank and if you can survive a couple of years…your family is set. Who cares about reputation or what some stupid fan thinks of you. Just nod and say yes-sir boss and do your time until you are fired.

    Also, of the 21 or so 1st and 2nd round picks…only 3 are not BUSTS (Nnamdi, Seabass, Howard)….3 out of 21!

    Those players can play. Its the antique playbook, pisspoor playcalling and general chaos that is the Oakland Raiders organization

    I’m not ready to give up on McFadden or Russell.

    If they were used properly, they’d be productive. Besides, McFadden hasn’t had the opportunity this season to really show off. The fumbles are a major setback.

    Hopefully it’s one really bad game and not the story of the season.

    Houston will be a crucial game across the board for the owner, organization, coaching staff, players, and fans.

    If we see more of this vertical nonsense, we might as well write the season off.

    I didn’t think I was ready to that just yet, but yesterday’s performance was really sad.

    UP LOCOMOTIVE – Thats the strange thing. Why pay Walker all that money to sit on the sidelines? We desperately need a veteran presence out on the field and not 2 rookies. Murphy is pretty good but its just not working out for DHB just yet and thats ok but put in Higgins or Walker.

    SnB – I wouldn’t go after Vick. He was never a good QB regardless of his athleticism. I say trade for Kevin Kolb instead if you’re going to go that route but I’m not sure the Eagles would let that happen.
    Kolb is a backup QB. Matt Cassell II…forget that crap. The only QB that can win here with this antique offense is an improvisor. And yes, he might not win often but at least he gives you a chance on every play.

    Look at Andrew Walter. He looked just like Russell in 2006…its a freekn joke so stop wishing on the next guy to boo out of here.

    Davis needs to relinquish control and he won’t do it

  • SNB, of course the root cause is Al Davis. The point I’m making is that Cable’s working at Safeway in a year, no matter what happens. He might as well make a run at it and just coach the team his way, and even risk being Kiffin’d for it. Overhead projector style, baby. If he puts up some wins, or even gives pro and college programs the impression that he’s genuinely trying to and that it’s really Al holding him back, he can parlay his time here into a head coaching gig somewhere else in the NFL or the college 1A level, like Kiffin and Gruden. He just sits back and let’s Al pull his strings, it’s “paper or plastic” in one year.

    i’m hearing the obvious, yet no one is talking about john marshall’s sorry defensive scheme. we have three safeties and you’re going to put ricky brown on a wide receiver on third down ? we give horton all day to throw and we still don’t blitz. seems like everytime denver ran the ball they were getting 7-8 yards a pop. with the speed we have on defense we need to blitz. it’s rob ryan all over again. there’s no f@%&en way we let horton beat us ( pathetic ). seymore should play inside on obvious run downs then end on pass downs.and you don’t put a linebacker on a wr. on obvious pass downs !
