NFL Network: Hanson talked to police

The NFL Network’s JasonLaCanfora is reporting Randy Hanson has talked to Napa police and named coach Tom Cable as the man who threw the punch.

Attorney John McGuinn, who represents Hanson, called it a “textbook case of felony assault” but didn’t know if and when charges would be filed.

When Cable was asked if he had talked to law enforcement last week, he said he had not.

The Napa police department has not updated its Aug. 21 report on the matter, which occurred Aug. 5 at the Napa Marriott during training camp.

The NFL is waiting for the Napa investigation to run its course before determining if there will be discipline forthcoming from the league.

    Mista,

    Yes I do understand the Romo boos vs the JRuss boos.

    But I’m saying that I wouldn’t want Romo or Delhommes problems on our team any more than Russell. So what they would complete 10 more passes a game. They would turn the ball over just as much, and choke in crunch time just like they do now on teams with more talent.

    JRuss sucks, but so does about 90% of the QBs in the league.

  • Mistabrown

    Jhill, if you want to call DHB a bust after 3 games thats your choice. I wont join you on that one!

    Mistabrown,

    I am just being honest. I am still a fan and all. But I don’t live in Oakland so I have to go to a Direct TV location to watch the games and its a little out of the way…not to mention overpriced beer etc….

    I’ll just go to my favorite spot and watch the local game. That’s all I am saying.

    I am not saying I won’t hope the Raiders get better…but I am not going out of my way to watch a team that will be entering another phase of deep restructuring should they lose next week.

  • stuckinda80s

    Randy Hanson was a defensive assistant and the db`s ask Willie Brown for advise and besides the usatoday reports that Hanson was demoted to film breakdown and that he only works in the film room.

    Since you’ve chosen the tenor for tonight. Answer me this. All you do is bash the Raiders day and night. Bash the team, the QB, everything.

    What fun is that? Day after Day. When it gets to that point you need to find something else to do

    What do you think of Brett Ratliff?

  • Kirk

    Gradkowski is better than Russell.

    I liked this post so much I am repeating it…

    1. Run Michael Bush 20+ times

    2. Stop throwing deep with Russell…he can’t do it

    3. Bench HEyward-Bey…what good is he right now

    4. Play JLH and Schilens…get some freekn familiarity

    5. Turn playcalling over to Tollner

    6. Tell Davis to leave John marshall alone

  • Mistabrown

    Jhill,
    I can give DMAC a pass for 2 reasons.

    1- DMAC will correct his fumble probs by the time JaMeatball is still sporting a 20% passer rating.

    2- Fargas is next in line if DMAC gets demoted.

    The end.

    bill cowher like to run run run. al woukld neva hire him . it would be funny if raiders hire gruden. least we know the team will be tough and russell will get dumped. and why would they bench dhb? it would defeat the point of drafting him.. hes gotta play to get better. he just needs to not start. play slot sum sh t.

  • Mistabrown

    I dont bash the Raiders. I go easy on AL. I been hard on Russell, he deserves it! Im not taking a piss on DHB after 3 games like you are. I said our safeties are a pleasant surprise….WTF man do you read ? Why am I taking to SnB your a 49er fan!

    I been applauding the defense while you goons have rather make excuses for Russell. Now that Russell has knocked the wind out of them it wont be pretty.

    I’m a season ticket holder since the team returned to Oakland. And here you are following Oakglens lead calling me a Browns fan and now you’re going to follow the 49ers?

    Mistabrown,

    It won’t matter much. My enthusiasm for this team was sapped after last week. If they get smashed this weekend, I am done for the year.

    I’ll watch the Giants/Eagles/49ers/Vikings/jets and simply follow the Raider score on the news crawl.

  • CJ Legend 34

    Once again I see guys on here fussing like little girls back and forth.

    Look fellas! The reality is the Raiders are not a good team right now. From the top front office down to the water boy.

    Our formations are out of date. Al does try to run the show. Cable was off the chain to strike another coach and we make average teams look great.

    So stop making racial comments at Russel. He is not the only one blowing it. Look back at the games missed tackles, fumbles, dropped passes, players falling on the ground out of position.

    Grow up and accept it like a man and stop crying this is just not a good football team.

    Jeez,

    for crying out loud you guys are a bunch of wussies. 2 weeks ago you are all on the bandwagon. last week you enjoyed a win and most of you were on here waiting for us to spank the Donkeys. I heard 31-13 predicted on here. They dropped an egg and now all of you are frickin crying for your mothers. The season is frickin 3 weeks old. We got some bad breaks to be honest. That would have been pass interference had that play involved a raider dback and you know it. The first safety couldn’t make the play because Jabustus put it only to where a 6-2 vs 5-11 would battle a jump ball. Unfortunately he got pushed and no call was made. a couple of breaks here and there and the game would have been much closer. You got a bunch of young guys on our team that will have to learn to be smart with the football and that schytt takes time. This is the first time in years we had a good offseason and making the right personel moves (most of it)

    You bunch of whiners should really go root for the Niners. They are winning and their bandwagon still got seats left for you. I bet after we win against Houston (if Chaz plays), you are all back on the stupid wagon.

    ——————————–
    alisgod,

    you gotta point there alisgod but im tryin to agree with you but at the same time its hard. You gotta understand where some of these fans are coming from. That opening night against the chargers we played TREMENDOUSLY, the previous openers we all lost and the previous two openin day monday night games we got blown out. So when we came out with what should’ve won a lot of fans are goin to be optimistic because of the way we played when we havent played like this before for the past 6 years.When we beat the chiefs it was an off day but when we lost to the donkeys raider fans are sayin “here we go again” because statistically when we satrt 1-2, we don’t end up well. Also because a lot of us are tired. Tired of jamarcus inacurracy, lack of heart passion, lack of remorse, al davis meddling, our run d gettin blown up again(it wasnt really there fault), and after the game lookin like another season of futility. I personally think this can be a deep playoff team if we have better schemes,playcalling, more heart and aggression and ruthlessness (which we were known for), better packages, and al letting the coaches coach and letting them do their way. I can understand how some of them feel but you got some good points and i agree with you on some stuff but who knows? its a long time maybe this is a different raider team than the ones for the past 6 years and they turn it around and i hope they do because i believe in the raiders no matter whether we win or we lose, if we get 16-0 or 0-16 it don’t matter the silver in black is in my blood and id love them till the day i die no matter what the results.

  • Plunketthead

    Roy Williams looks slow, Romo sucks, Fans are BOOING the girls

  • jhill

    Romo – 3 ints last week and zero points in the first half.

    Is that booing I here Mista?

    SB my arse They are booing b/c they know garbage when they see it and Romo is an overhyped nobody, just like most of the QBs in the league, including ours.

    gotta roll with mistabrown here snb. Yeah you are probably mad at the raiders right now because of our horrible start and how we benn losin for 6 years but man if they lose you aint gonna watch them no more. and here you are dissin mistabrown and accusin him of bein a browns fan because his name because hes got “brown” in his name and you just assume hes a browns fan. Damn i sorta lost some respect from you and it shows what kind i raider fan you really are.

  • ragin

    Raiders win next week

  • Mistabrown

    Tazz, just to be fair and honest. I dont think SnB said Im a Browns fan because of my name. I said in Feb/2008 the Browns should pretty good in 2009. Oakglen took that and ran, started calling me a Browns fan and SnB followed Oakglen down an idiotic path.

  • jhill

    Here’s a thought …

    If Belechik can put Tom Terrific on the shelf because of an ineffective passing game, I wonder if Cable will take a clue?

    The Pats went with 2 TEs and pounded the ball all game. Vertical shotgun offense was nowhere to be found.

    Cmon Cable, just make a F’ing adjustment.

  • Mistabrown

    Jhill, you are stuck on the Cowboys somethin awful man! Oakglen should call you a Cowboys fan!

    :P

  • Mistabrown

    Cable will allow AL to cut off his testicles before he yanks JaMeatloaf out of the lineup, get real!

  • Raiders4eve

    Felix Jones seems to me a better runner than DMC.

  • UP LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER

    can anyone smell a your fired for cause coming on cable will be another scapegoat that will not get paid for being the main attraction in a sideshow

    this is getting pathetic im so tired of this shyt and all i will do is watch every game for the rest of my life like an idiot from this point on untill i notice a change i will not support this organization financialy but i will still and still do hate all bandwagoners.
    like in los angeles were all of a sudden theres a plethera of charger fans makes me want to puke and i know its al davis fault but when things turn around soooome daaaay we will all be able to spot the turncoats and go upside their jaw. lol

  • alisgod

    Tazz,

    I hear you man and well said. I just get so frustrated with these fans who claims to be hard core Raider fans and at the earliest sign of trouble they start jumping ship. How diff are they from the very same players that they mock? We are a better team in 2009 but we are not there yet. I thought we needed 2010 but Seymour kinda push my schedule up.

    Cable’s job is one of the hardest job next to the HC of the lions. Al’s strength is his weakness and dealing with his structure has got to be tough. I accept that reality and that is why I have believed in Cable since the day he took over. He told us all that they are close last year and they did turn that ship around.

    Right now, Jabustus (yes I call him that cuz its funny) has his best receiver hurt and best lineman hurt. Just be a little more patient and see if JR is better once he gets chaz back. Think about it, all Chaz has to do is catch a few balls and they have to back off the doubling of Miller. Then that creates openings for the run.

    Lastly, I think Cable should give up his play calling. He has not done a good job of it and I think he is a better HC if he gives up the playcalling.

  • alisgod

    Who gives a ratt’s a$$ about Hanson other than the media and some of you fools. If they arrest Cable then so be it. Until then I am looking forward to the Houston Match up. They dont scheme as much as Denver and We will be fine playing them heads up.

    Where are all the doubters of Mike Mitchell? I am calling all your dumba$$es out!

  • silvernblack209

    last time we won a superbowl was with a mexican qb named plunket, looked at mark sanchez right now ( maybe we should have drafted him instead).. hes tearing it up, in his first year, sadly to say, russell is not cutting it right now, don’t get me wrong I am waiting and hoping russel is the future of our franchise, but this is a win now league, we will see how this turns out whether or not Jamarcus is a bust or not soon enough.

    Cowgirls need to trade for TO as we need to trade for Kolb or Mcnabb it will be a win suitation for everyone. Btw JR sucks

    thanks bro
    good points but jamarcus been so dissapointing and hes sort of at fault and so are his receivers. Yea you right it will change when chaz comes back, less double team of miller, opening of the run right on.Yeah theres a lot of fans like that and there on every single team but some of the fans for the raiders i feel for because some gotta poin and some just jump the ship. Yeah agree with you mitchell is good and hes gonna prove his doubters wrong. I also think cable will become a better hc if someone lese calls the plays because he hasn’t been doing good at all in that category.

  • alisgod

    Tazz,

    On Monday nite vs SD, we were running the ball in the first half and I hardly saw any playaction involved. I hate ratface but that’s what Ratshanahan would do and why he is an awesome playcaller.

    Jabustus has nver been accurate at all the LSU highlights I watched and the games I have watched him as a Raiders. He needs big receivers that go and fight for his balls. Dwayne Bowe was his go to guy at LSU. Chaz and Miller are his go to guys here. They are all big boys that can go get the ball. We are a young team and Cable must let the D win games for us and not let the O put us in the hole with turnovers. Cable has to be smart with that.

    As much as I hate to admit it but Singletary has done a great job of not allowing his offense/shaun hill lose the game for him.

  • priesttj

    Just a comment on Randy Hanson, the reason the DB’s are reaching out to him is his ability to break dwn film for them, or what they call cutups. Hanson was outstanding in prescouting opponents. Giving and preparing film for players to study. Hanson is extremely detailed an thorough. Our DB’s led by Nnamdi are voracious film students and most of what they got was form Hanson.

    So my guess is they needed his his cutups for film study. This opponenet we’re playing next is good and every little bit helps. That TE they have is outstanding not to mention the WR.

    Also it has been said that Hanson is a maniacal student of the game and probably knows more than most HC’s it’s his personality tha holds him back. But interms of the game of X’s and O’s there are few better. The little nuances of an opponents offense or defense the guy will find them and that’s where hegets into the coaches faces and becomes just a general pain in the ass because he knows tooooo much.

    You might compare him to Bill Belichik or Tom Coughlin and I know tht sounds crazy but I’ve herd peoople refer to the guy as a genius. Seriously!!

  • ragin

    Yup Felix jones is better than mcfadden he is tearing it up uhm wait he is uhm hurt…

  • alisgod

    Agreed again Tazz on the weapons.

    Frankly, i would always put McFadden and Bush on the field at the same time and split McFadden out to the slot or in the back and just keep teams off their heel. With Jabustus having his issues, we need to get him in rythm and even Miller said that today.

    ********
    good point 209, I was thinking the same thing. wouldn’t it be great for Raider Nation, with a large hispanic fanbase, to have drafted a Mexican American Qb such as Sanchez. Mexican Americans are making their presence known in the NFL with players that are not kickers.
    for now, we just have to hope Jrock turns the corner very soon. Who knows if Sanchez would have experienced the same success in the Raiders current system.
    Lets hope for a Win against Houston. Last year, was the first time we beat them and perhaps the memory of that will be momentous in turning it around this season.

  • tazZraider

    all of yall on the blog we have SO MANY WEAPONS ON THIS TEAM its freekin crazy. This time around though, the hec don’t know how to use it and thats why we are strugglin.

  • GalacticGus

    Being a proud Mexican American, I am rooting for Sanchez and the Jets to win the AFC east over the Pats.
    Of course, I won’t be rooting for them when they play the Raiders.

  • Raiders4eve

    Lol there is no use unless we change our style n become a smash mouth football running on all downs meaning we run 60 % of our snaps, we have no qb no wrs no solid pass blockers, solution run the ball n play good defense, how does that sound at least I trust this scheme than JR

  • jhill

    I don’t care abt Mexican black white or alien QB, just get someone who can solidify the position.

    Exactly.

    And Sanchez was gone before we picked. Wasn’t even an option.
