    we need to pass on first down, change up a little.

    Alright, Marino, here we go!

  • GForce21

    Just had an idea that could bring value to our 7 overall pick.

    Maybe we can have our QBs throw underhand to DHB?

  • Raiders4eve

    They miss YEAH all we need is TD, the kool
    aid is working nice half time 10-7 would be a good goal now.

    ===============

    He put way more heat on it than marino was capable of.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    That was just like Unitas, except that there was no receiver there. If there was a receiver there, AIG, that would have been NFL films worthy, with the tuba soundtrack.

  • RaiderDuck

    MaddenRaider: You seem to be obsessed with Dan Marino today. Does this mean you’ll be taking up NutriSystem for Men next?

  • Raiders4eve

    Fok man so many 3 n out, time for anotherkool aid

  • priesttj

    WOW, can it get any worse this guy is tooo small and to weak…………period

    Cable, admit you’re a FOOL and put the kid back in there………period

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Agreed, GForce. Afterall, Gradkowski is actually BETTER than Dan Marino.*

    * based on high school stats

  • GForce21

    Dont forget isotoner gloves

  • armond

    priest they have given up on russell so much they are willing to except this crap instead of developing russ.u see how this little midget cant even see over the damn oline? i only like the russell benching to show him what he needs to do. i dont like how caveman went about it.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    RaiderDuck, earlier today AIG brought us the fascinating nugget of wisdom that Gradkowski is better than Marino, Montana, and Unitas based on high school stats. I’m just agreeing with AIG. It’s true. We’re seeing on the field today that Gradkowski is definitely in the same league as those hall of famers.

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    the one thing you guys got to praise grad about is going away we are having 3&outs

  • GForce21

    Miles Austin is going to what, his 14th or 15th consecutive pro bowl after this year right?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Well put, 35 year old fan, I mean, 16 year old fan…

  • priesttj

    the defense is Gassed!! we have zero passing game.

  • GForce21

    Drew Pearson, Michael Irvin, Terrell Owens and Miles Austin.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Don’t doubt our little Joe Montana, priest. Gradkowski has better high school stats than Joe Cool. We’re just about to turn it on.

  • RaiderDuck

    Gradkowski is bringing the suckiness today. Charlie Frye, anyone?

  • priesttj

    Armond, well said but I can’t see Mr Davis puttin up with much of this crap. Cable is in DEEEEEPP trouble because he ran his mouth more than he should’ve.

  • aig

    16,

    you may want to look up how many 3 and outs we have today. My count says 1. that first one.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    RaiderDuck, how dare you? Do you know anything about football? Gradkowski has better high school stats than Joe Montana. Giving up on him a bit earlier considering that fact, aren’t you?

  • Raiders4eve

    Man that’s it hope we don’t lose by 30 pts, I’m done with da kool aid bring in Frye notJabust

  • Ghost2Post

    I knew it.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Frye..LOL. Have any of you guys looked up Frye’s high school stats?

  • aig

    priest,

    I hate to say it but you’re a coward. Earlier this week you admitted JR wasnt getting it done and deserved to be benched. Now at the earliest sign of Grad struggling, you’re acting like JR has been getting it done the past 9 weeks. You’re a coward and there I said it.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AIG, better got on Frye’s high school stats. Looks like he’s coming in. LOL.

  • centurionWR87

    Where has murphy been? Switch him with DHB! He’s got more determination atm!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    And remember, AIG, Montana, Unitas, and Marino all struggles early on, too.

  • centurionWR87

    If the offence doesn’t score, just makes it so much more difficult for our defence to keep it up…

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    i just said its starting al is fraud and its not like he threw for too many 1st downs

  • GForce21

    Marino struggled mightily his first two years with the Dolphins. I thought he was going to get cut.

  • priesttj

    Frye is hands down better than the “Great Gradkowski” he is bigger stronger and just as allusive. That’s why I say they are in no way done with Russel. If they were Frye would be starting.

    When we see Frye you’ll know Russell is done.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AlisFraud, LOL. I called him that years ago. I still think he changed his name AIG because he could no longer type “Al is God” with a straight face.

  • Raiders4eve

    Second half cahrlir Frye plzzzzzzzz

  • RaiderDuck

    MaddenRaider: If you’re trying to make the point that it’s ludicrous to consider NFL competency by High School stats, I completely agree. Every year, every single High School league in America has a couple of guys who run for 150+ yards every game. Maybe 1 in 50 of those guys makes it to the NFL.

    At the same time, it was not racism to see the Gradkowski of last week as a breath of fresh air who could at least throw a semi-accurate pass. Also, Russell needs a few weeks off to be able see the game from another angle and learn. Whether he takes advantage of that opportunity remains to be seen.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Bye bye, woman beater.

  • priesttj

    That’s what they should do with Hey-Bey a bubble screen is very effective.

  • GForce21

    Hope none of my fantasy teams are playing Miles Austin

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    priest ive been sitting here telling my gramma that this whole game

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Remains to be seen…LOL. I think we’re seeing it. Gradkowski sucks. But he does have better high school stats than Unitas!

  • RaiderSam

    oh brother…back to normal 17-0….. passing game is terrible today… does Russell come in?

  • Raiders4eve

    This is azzzz whooping I saved Patron for the night for me n my gal, forget it I up on it from now peace put guys I willget knocked out by da fourth

  • RaiderDuck

    Only way Cable sticks around is for Oakland to (counting today) go at least 3-3 the rest of the year, and probably 4-2. Not saying it’s impossible, but it’s looking more and more likely we’ll be discussing the ins and outs of either Kevin Gilbride or Jim Fassel this summer.

  • aig

    i knew it. we had to shut down Miles to shut the girls down. their offense is all about Miles.

  • centurionWR87

    Keep Gradkowski on, DHB has dropped, Schilens missed a catch…Gradkowski has thrown a couple bad throws but 10x better than JR… He would have thrown a couple INTs by now…

  • 16yearsold16yearfan

    centurion isnt that exactly what happened in the kc game when russell was benched
