    Ex…I mean 1.54 margin lol
    ————————————
    I went to the FF site today expecting that I was killed. What a surprise with the number of Saints I was facing. I wish our Raiders could be that lucky.

  • DMAC

    feels great!

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    With the low number of points my team has, I have little chance of moving up to the playoffs. That’s what I get for starting 1-3. lol

  • 4evaRaider

    man Ex…I wish I could be that lucky lol!!!!!!!!

  • DMAC

    Why is Howard being replaced? I thought it all starts up front and then the MLB is supposed to take care of the rest.

  • 4evaRaider

    ??? Howard is not our MLB…as a matter of fact ,we dont have 1…unless They B thinking Slade Norris,at 6-3 245lbs will grow into a MLB

  • 4evaRaider

    Like I said at the beginning of training camp last year…We could,with the right true NT be a better 3-4 with current personnel,imo

  • DMAC

    How big was Biekert? That guy played w/ heart and could definetley stop the run.

  • DMAC

    Let’s bring in Shaun Rodgers 2 run the 3-4

  • RaiderRockstar

    lets hope this next year is uncapped or Kirk Morrison & Thomas Howard will become the 2 highest paid LB’s in the league – by Oakland. they’ll be unrestricted FA’s

    so will Ricky Brown, Jon Alston & Sam Williams, not that it matters

    Slade Norris, Trevor Scott & David Nixon at LB in 2010 baby! LOL

    YIKES

  • RaiderRockstar

    next year Hiram Eugene is a free agent and Michael Huff is scheduled to earn over $5 million …

    Taylor Mays, welcome to Oakland!

  • M Lonetree

    Just logged on and saw that McDonald’s is sponsoring Jerry Mac’s afternoon chat. Is that a comment upon the Raiders conditioning regimen? or the dietary habits of contributors here? Or a name game in that one of Jerry’s long lost relatives got hoodwinked by Ray Kroc thereby losing $billions?

    DMAC – Biekert was about 6’2″ 255 if I remember correctly.

    Steelers expect Roethlisberger to play Sunday

    PITTSBURGH (AP) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has worked out without problems since missing Sunday night’s game in Baltimore with a concussion. He is expected to resume practicing Wednesday.

    Coach Mike Tomlin says Roethlisberger has not had any headaches since Friday. He is expected to play Sunday against Oakland barring any further complications.

    Roethlisberger’s post-practice headaches last week were brought on by physical activity. Ateam doctor recommended he not play during the 20-17 overtime loss in Baltimore.

    The quarterback sustained his fourth concussion since 2006 and his second in less than a year during an overtime loss in Kansas City on Nov. 22.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Biekert was about 6′2″ 255 if I remember correctly.

    ***

    same height. 15 lbs heavier than Kirk Morrison

    Biekert couldn’t cover, but he sure could make tackles behind the LOS. a great defensive captain

  • RaiderRockstar

    Big Ben passed for 398 yards, threw 3 TD’s and the Steelers still lost to KC!

    Ben got sacked twice and also threw 2 INT’s …

    if he has similar stats against the Raiders, can we overcome and still get the win?

  • RaiderRockstar

    CB Jamar Love released by Dallas yesterday.

    any relation to Clarence?

  • DMAC

    Who’s the best MLB coming out of the draft? Your opinions?

  • 4evaRaider

    M Lonetree…Happy Holidays 1st!!!

    Just this past August Jerry’s blog got OVER 1 million posts,just in August…They may be re-thinking that move now…as you well know we was gonna set the world on fire…Soo thats why the McDonalds sponsorship

  • 4evaRaider

    or Courtney Love lol

  • Nnamdi21

    “Cable said, “I don’t really see any change whatsoever. ”

    +=====================

    Meaning Russell’s still being a lazy f*ck.

    Kirk Morrison SUCKS!!!

    Moving Thomas Howard to Strong side is f**king stupid!!!

    Howard has been one of our better D players at Weak side and moving him showed against Dallas. We got creamed.

    Trevor Scott looking like the old #91 Tyler Brayton.

    Mismangaement of assets on this team sucks!!!

    BTW, Raidercast sucks too!!!!

    That being said, I think Oakland can beat the Steelers…

  • 4evaRaider

    See??? there is thar word Captain again…General…face it guys we got a General in Grads the Great…noodle arm…big-brain…pit bull,imo

    F**k McDonaloads.

    Sick to def of paying more and getting less. Their “Big” mac patties are sivler dollar sized and the fries haven’t been the same since they switched to “healthy” sunflower seed oil or whatever crap they’re using. SUCKS!!!

    Listen, if I want health food, I’ll get health food. If I want my American fast foosd meal I want may American fast food meal!!!

    Bring back beef tallow for the fries!!! AND stay the f**k away from my Raiders you corporate ba-s-tards!

    Its not like Jamarcus needs anymore distractions or weight gain!

  • M Lonetree

    Rockstar,

    perhaps Jamar is the Love-child of Courtney and Bob “Butterbean”.

    DMAC,

    the Raiders need an O-line upgrade as always, a true MLB captain of the defense as ever(doubtful a draftee would fulfill that role), and they have beaucoup bucks wrapped up in the skill positions (skillful or not they be). I suggest the Raiders draft another cornerback! :)

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

    Why? Unless he runs a sub 4.4 forty we’ll never see him in Silver and Black.

  • 4evaRaider

    lmao Nnamdi!!!

    Yeah what is up wid all the position swaps??? I mean it work’s here and there throughout the league but like you I feel this has been a DISASTER lately

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

    Got that right. He was a great D QB. Morrison’s terrible more then he’s good. Bad audibles, constantly over runs the play, can’t stack and shed on and on. Might be a GREAT strang side, but a failure at MLB and it shows ever single year…

    Greetings Nation!

    I know the draft is a crapshoot but we did draft good players who our coaches can’t get the most out of or just plain don’t know how to use them.

    Let’s go back to the last time we were good. Jon Gruden. He knew how to use the players and motivate them.

    Then Norv Turner: Can call plays but cannot motivate guys on defense and does not have a strong personality.

    Art Shell: Old school dude who had talent here but did himself in with the Bed & Breakfast. Plus his protection schemes required Hall of Fame Linemen to run it, according to the players themselves.

    Lane Kiffin: was going places until he got pissed about not getting Arkansas job. Downhill from there.

    Tom Cable: Still trying to figure out the following:

    How to motivate JaMarcus.
    How to get DMAC the ball.
    How to call plays.
    How to make sure Fargas gets (x) amount of carries.
    How to protect the QB.
    How to use a player after they make a mistake.
    How to use Kirk Morrison.
    How to use Thomas Howard.
    How to get DHB to catch the ball.
    How to get DHB sent to the bench.
    How to find Javon Walker’s uniform and helmet.
    How to get John Marshall to stop the run.
    How to stop beating women.
    How to keep Hanson quiet.
    How to say the right things to keep his job next year.

    At least the entire Nation is aware that we are getting close to finding these things out. We are also aware that we are close to the last game of the season.

    Lets face it Nation, the last 7 years of excitement has come from the off-season. Our season is the off-season.

    Don’t lie. Every true Raider fan in here is looking forward to two things: Our next coach and draft. These next 5 games are just fodder leading up to that.

  • M Lonetree

    Thanks 4eva.

    Nnamdi,

    read recently that Burger King franchises were up in arms that corporate headquarters ordered the outlets to offer $1 double cheeseburgers. Franchise owners said it cost $1.10 to make one. Made me want to buy a million of them. :)

  • 4evaRaider

    Dmac…just look in the top 10 college run defences in Division 1A…in there somewhere I bet there is a true MLB

  • DMAC

    Just want to know who you would draft at MLB if you were a GM. (trying to spark conversation)

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    Linebacker Zack Brown, UNC. Hope AD does not see this sub 4.3 L.B. # 1 draft pick LOL

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

    Weak at LB to start with. Ricky Brown probably wouldn’t have “won” the start anywhere else. Then when he got hurt, Alston got concussed, so we’re bouncing guys around, but moving Howard sucks. I understand it, but it sucks.

    Fullbacks another spot we’ve been dinged and thin at for the last 2 yrs at least.

    Asking Oren to come back from a near amputation was too much. Lorenzo was one year too far gone and one year too late for us. Gary Russell couldn’t make another NFL team and Luke Lawton couldn’t even get work on practice squads till hge showed up in oaktown.

    You take DMC 4th overall, you luck into Bsuh in the 4th and rehab him for a solid year then you hamstring these guys with sh*t fullbacks?!!!

    Not like fullbacks cost $60 million you know?

    Sick of Raider incompetence and stupidity! We deserve better!

  • Nnamdi21

    M lonetree: No doubt! lol!

  • DMAC

    Let’s bring back Griffin. Or Zac!

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

    Good job DMAC. Just venting…I think we may actually be better served by a proven grisled veteran. Definitely need a LEADER on D to scream at, instruct and get these fools into position!

  • RaiderRockstar

    I suggest the Raiders draft another cornerback!

    ***

    I agree with you, M

    Bowie is already gone and Routt sucks. CJ is getting older

    draft a CB!

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

    I was surprised when they let Griffin go, but thought Oren was going to be ok I guess was their thinking…Griffin suffered the knee injury last year but watched him play for Seattle last week end. Not great, but not bad…better then our scrubs!

  • DMAC

    I like that kid Sydquan from Cal. Good coverage and very physical.

    Taylor Mays USC.

    Moving Huff to CB? Who knows with these wacky Raiders…

  • exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    After wanting skill players in the last 4 drafts, I have changed to wanting stud lineman and linebackers. We are too weak up front and in the middle.

  • RaiderRockstar

    pay Jon Ritchie $5 million per year to come out of retirement. we need somebody that can block at FB !

  • DMAC

    How about we sign turd sands to play fb.

  • 4evaRaider

    I dunno Stopwatch…Tho Cable needs to learn things,I for one am quite happy with what he has done in a short time with the inherited mess.Looks like a coach who will bust you in the mouth,if needed.Wants nothing MORE than 2 coach da Raiders…except 4 da Raiders to be the Kings again.All we can do,as ever,is wait and see,but Cable will right this ship,imo

  • Nnamdi21

    Peace out Raider nation. We deserve better!

    Enjoy the day all and thanks for keepin us posted Jerry!

  • Nnamdi21

    Lets get Troy Smith from the Ravens at QB and make the trade for Glen Dorsey and Dwayne Bowe this off season…

  • RaiderRockstar

    Samson Satele, Cooper Carlisle & Cornell Green are premier players in this league. We’re lucky to have them.

    Same with Tommy Kelly, Gerrard Warren, William Joseph & Desmond Bryant. I can’t think of a more solid DT rotation in the league!

    the lines are fine guys. we need help at the skill positions, Russell can’t do it alone!

  • DMAC

    Let’s trade our pick for Urlacher!

  • los raiders de don rober

    If I were an NFL owner this would be my spending priorities:
    1. Coaching
    2. QB
    3. Defensive Line

    Al’s spending priorities:
    1. DBs
    2. WRs
    3. Defensive Line
