Russell: Schilens hasn’t missed a beat

Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell believes he and wide receiver Chaz Schilens can pick up where they left off during training camp.

“(It’s) like he hasn’t missed a beat,” Russell said. “Just had to get back used to him running certain routes but other than that he’s looking good.”

The last time the two played together in a game was Aug. 13, when Russell and Schilens carried out on the field what they had been doing during training camp as the Raiders beat the Dallas Cowboys 31-13.

On the Raiders’ first offensive snap, Russell hit Schilens for an 11-yard gain. Next Schilens went deep and drew a 47-yard pass interference penalty from Gerald Sensabaugh. Passes of 6 and 10 yards followed.

The next time the Raiders got the ball, Russell found Schilens for 16 yards on a third-and-8 for a first down. Schilens also caught a 9-yard pass from Bruce Gradkowski early in the second quarter before taking the rest of the game off with five reeptions for 52 yards.

In all Schilens was targeted five times and caught five passes for 52 yards. Russell was 4-for-4 for 43 yards and the penalty.

Contrast that with these ghastly stats through six games. While passing to wide receivers, Russell is 18-for-74 for 259 yards, five interceptions and one touchdown _ a quarterback rating of 18.0.

All five of his interceptions have come while throwing to wideouts.

Russell thinks having Schilens around will change the way opponents defend the Raiders.

“It’s a guy that they have to put down in their books, ‘We’ve got to watch where he’s at all time,,’ ” Russell said. “He’s a guy who can really make a game change in a matter of a few catches.”

Schilens reiterated he doesn’t know how much he’ll play.

“Well, right now I think it’s really up to the coaches to see how they want to use me,” Schilens said. “I haven’t been in there for a while, so I’m sure they’re going to pick and choose situations where they feel I can succeed. It’s really up to the coaches. Maybe I’ll be playing a little bit of both. But it felt good, it felt good.”

No changes on the field as the Raiders began practice . . . still no sign of Robert Gallery and no notable absences . . .

More to come later . . .

    No they have not, he tried to force a pass to Zack (who was double covered in the Eagles game) and it was picked off. True story.

    Brien, you could be from Nebraska, for all we know. Under your name Norco Bob, you brag about fishing, drinking whine, and go on all of these racist rants. Then when you post as Brien, you act like you’re this poor black guy from the bay area. You’re a pathological liar. Basically, you pay attention to know just enough about every topic to be able to profess having been there and done that. You’re from Oakland, yet you know everything about gangs in LA. All I do is bring up the fact that gang violence decreased in the ’90s, you got angry, personally insulted me, and insisted it was because the police got all of the bad guys off of the street (enter, Norco Bob…). Brien, you haven’t demonstrated to me that you know anything about things you talk about. You’re the guy who just repeats things he overhears. But if you want to continue to try and convince me that you really are an expert on every single subject, go for it. It’s entertaining.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Uh oh, now Norco Bob is switching back to Brien. He’s saying the police are crooked and can’t be trusted, when on the last thread he said that the only thing that calmed gang violence down in the ’90s was gang members being locked away, a pretty pro law enforcement point of view. It’s like watching a fish flap around.

    And notice what Norco Brien just did…said that the reason gang violence dropped was because they were all in jail, basically making the point that we need more law enforcement. Anyone catch that? It was Brien transferring to Norco Bob, the racist conservative. Bet you Norco pops up within seconds.
    ************************************

    Why would we need more law enforcement? They are the biggest crooks outside of politicians. You have no rebuttle for me. You are just like a little brat in school, “see, see, see ,see what he just said? waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa”

    OK, Norco Brien. Got it. But just tell me, why do you credit the police on the previous thread for decreasing gang violence in the ’90s? You said the “OGs” (lol) were locked away. Wouldn’t that mean that gang violence died down because the police got them off of the streets? Then on this thread, you say that the police are crooked, basically useless in regards to stopping gangs. Mutually exclusive points of view, Norco Brien. And that’s why I know you’re a troll that talks out of different sides of your mouth, under different names.

    I never switch. I always stand my ground and never sway from it. The police are crooked and everyone knows that. Gang violence did calm down because so many guys were gone due to death or jail. People were tired of it man. That isn’t being pro that is just the truth

    How am I giving them credit as if I’m saying good job to them? Did you miss the part about the deaths as well contributing to that? Sure the police got some of those gang members but not all of them and certainly didnt stop the new crop from rising did they?

    Sure police are crooked and if they didnt have a mandate from higher officials to stop gang members they wouldnt have gave a damn. But what is your point? You never seen crooked cops actually bust criminals? Are you that stupid?

    ********STOP THE FREAKIN PRESS (Must read!!!)*****

    Dakota – Thanks for the post by ESPN Analysts Trent Delfer and Hassellback. They pissed me off!!!!!

    Who the heck wants to hear from Delfer and Hassellback? Especially Delfer!!! Delfer was one of the most pathetic QBs of all time. Delfer could not get off a 5 yard pass he was horrible for the Buccs.He would throw interceptions and get sacked all the time. Many Analysts said the guy had not pocket presence and was pure diappointment. The Buccs would loose every year in the play-offs mainly because of Dilfer’s horrible play. They had to dump this guy becuase he could not complete a decent 5-10 yard out. Dungy stayed with this guy until it almost ended his career, which it finally did. Delfer would get booed almost every game and the analyst that Delfer is trying to portray hated this guy!!!! He went to Baltimore and their defense was so strong they carried this guy to the superbowl.

    He was considered an H Back. No not a half-back a “Handoff Back” they would not let him throw a pass unless it was highly monitored and the WR was wide open. Every game he played in Baltimore the announcers would say all Dilfer has to do is throw the ball away just don’t do anything stupid to blow that game. What an f@c#ing hypocrite!!!!

    I am not saying Russel with his weight and issues is not well deserved but this guy is taking a beating from a bunch of “has beens” and clowns. I am so glad the Raiders don’t talk with ESPN, they don’t deserve it man. They make up a story when there is no story. How do they really know what Russel thinks about the game after getting payed a big pay check? Are they just jealous? They are not in this guy’s head. They have no idea what his preparation is like w/o being there. Most of the analysts making comments heard the comments from other analysts. That is their source another media source. I guess if Russel looked more like Dilfer and Hasselback he would be saying give this kid time to develop he has went through a lot with this franchise. It is true man!!!

    The media paints any picture they want to paint. I hope Russel has one heck of a game against NY. I want to see this succeed so he can shut these sorry @$$ x-players like Dilfer the F#(k up! If it was not someone taking time with Dilfer and no other QB talent out there available for Baltimore he would have never went to the super bowl. Baltimore could not find anyone else so they chose Dilfer until they transitioned to another QB. Dilfer calls himself a Christian what a hypocrite; he knows darn well he could not make any of the throws he is referring too. He was not consistent at all, not one bit.

    Check out Hasselbeck’s bio it speaks for it self. These guys were so sorry all they could be were analysts. How pathetic!!!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Hasselbeck

    What a joke!
    ———————————————————————————————————

    ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer played quarterback for 14 seasons with four NFL teams, including the Baltimore Ravens, whom he quarterbacked to the Super Bowl title in 2000. “My problem with JaMarcus Russell,” Dilfer said, “is that he’s not improving, not putting his best into the position to be successful. When you look at it closely, you can’t find any excuses for this guy.”

    Chaz also had 5 receptions 52 yards in 1 qtr in August.. While our receivers probably only have 150 more yards with 10 times more qtrs played

    Dilfer is a D-Bag!
    Saw him play in HS, down in Aptos, only reason he QB’d was his divorcee mom married the HS Football Coach.
    Played pretty good at Fresno, and then STANK it up for years in the NFL. Ravens won the SB in spite of him, and he never was more than a ‘game mgmt’ QB. He’s just bitter that he didn’t have the tools that JR has…but he’s got a mancrush on Sanchez, surprise, surprise….
