Otis signed to practice squad

Quarterback Jeff Otis was in the locker room Wednesday, having been signed to the practice squad, an indication that the Raiders aren’t sure if Bruce Gradkowski or Charlie Frye will be available to practice.

Having Otis for scout team reps would leave JaMarcus Russell and J.P. Losman running the Raiders offense during practice.

More to come . . .

    I don’t have any faith in Jamarcus so I am hoping that one of the other QBs start.

    Russell did play well for us down the stretch last year but this year just seems like he’s on some other planet. Even on the winning drive it wasn’t pretty…

    Heck, if he does start all I can hope for (pray for) is that being here for a full season with the conditioning required will mean he plays closer to the level he played at the end of last year compared to this year.

    leave jamarcus alone your lucky he preformed for you bastards!

    Yes, it was VERY lucky! Look at the game before when he came in off the bench and how ugly it turned against the REDSKINS for christs sakes!

    That’s why noone has confidence in him.

    Schilens and Murphy should be our starters for years to come with JLH playing slot. Who would you rather have Rey Maualuga starting MLB or DHB a backup receiver? How about Cushing or Matthews at LB? How about a DL of Ellis Raji Kelly and Seymour?

    S&B: who did Norv Turner bring in to play QB?

    Kerry Collins. then he drafted Andrew Walter to groom as future QB

    Turner has a knack for helping young QB’s along.

    However, QB’s like Collins/Walter are clearly not system fits under Kiffin or Cable – couldn’t agree more

    Walter couldn’t stick as 2nd or 3rd string QB in New England either though. makes you wonder if the kid is even NFL material. I don’t think we ruined him, look at David Carr playing in NY!

    And the Defense. They played pretty damned well!

    Heck, imagine having Crabtree, Harvin or Percy in the lineup with Schillens, Murphy and JLH (if we HAD to pick a WR).

    But, true, all these other picks were people that would’ve have been too “far out there”….although I think if we picked a LB last year people would’ve been upset too.

  • RaiderRockstar

    yes maverick. the Raiders defense shows up pretty regular this season under DC Marshall!

    apart from the prevent defense that gave SD the victory in Week 1, Morrison matched up with Brandon Marshall in the first meeting with Dungver and Sam Williams covering Jason Witten on Thanksgiving …

    Rob the slob is out and i’m glad.

  • RaiderResurrection

    Yeah when Russell goes to the Pro Bowl I’ll leave him alone. He deserves to be scurtinized. Not spending the necessary time on the film room? As a QB? WOW

    Every single good QB spends a lot of time watching film. Thost that don’t end up as Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith, Charlie Batch, Tim Couch, Matt Leinart, Tavaris Jackson, Rob Johnson, Todd Collins, Jason Cambell (half of the season), Tony Romo(half of the season), Jeff George, Marc Wilson, Cade McNown, etc.

  • RaiderRockstar

    time to get back to work now. later gents!

  • VanHeathen

    We finally have a real defense, and the Offense goes in the tank for 9 games…
    Grads, SAVED this season for the team and us Fans…

  • 4evaRaider

    I know ….did you see the holes Bush opened up for himself!!!! lol

  • RaiderResurrection

    Is still advocate using more Power and mix it into zone blocking. A lot of teams will power and zone the weakside

  • DKnight007

    Frye should start no matter what and let him had the ball off and throw screens, swing flat passes to RB’s and to the TE’s and short curl and quick outs to WR’s.

    The ball needs to come out of his hands fast and then take shots deep later.

    Notice how when Frye swinged the ball to Bush in the flat in the Pony game, nobody covered him and Bush gained 15 yards?

    Thats because teams automatically think our QB’s are going downfield and not even looking to go to their outlet backs in the flat.

    More swing passes, more 5-10 yard TE hitches…..more curl routes and I would love to see more of Chaz and DMC in the slot to confuse defenses.

    I noticed HUGE holes made on the left side. Didn’t see much on the right side, but maybe I just forgot them.

  • raiderzmaverick

    Notice how Frye and Graokowski thorow swing passes so they can be caught in stride by the RB and create a gain…..

    @Florida Pete;
    I don’t believe that Davis(OT) out of Rutgers will make it out of Rd. 1, much less rd.3. I dig the wishful thinking, however. I live in Jersey, and have been watching Anthony Davis for the last 3 years. I’m telling you, he is a BEAST who is going to have a nice career in the NFL. I hope it’s for my(our) Raiders!!!
