Davis doesn’t make trip


A few pregame notes:

— Raiders owner Al Davis did not make the trip to Cleveland, with son Mark accompanying his mother, Carole, on the trip. Davis did not travel to last year’s season finale in Tampa.

— FB Marcel Reece was activated to take the place of Luke Lawton, who was suspended for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs.

— RB Justin Fargas (knee) is inactive, meaning Michael Bush will get a chance to duplicate his 133-yard effort a week ago and will almost certainly end the season as the Raiders leading rusher unless Darren McFadden has an off-the-charts game.

— TE Zach Miller is active, having passed all tests. Other inactives, Bruce Gradkowski, J.P. Losman, Khalif Barnes, Nick Miller, Brandon Myers, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Javon Walker.

  • Maybe he’s dead!

  • Plunketthead

    ASk and you shall recieve

  • spellcheck

    Quick Real Moron …he’s probably still warm.

  • Plunketthead

    I did not say that in reply to MR. I was going back to the lost blog where I told Jerry to wake up and give us a new blog.

    There no way I want my good name associated with any of morons death wishes for those whom he hates.

  • Nice throw, Russell!

    Bench Russell now!

    Oh, wait…

  • There’s your run defense, 408.

  • raidermarty


  • GREAT START!!!! ooooh man…. shake it off Frye…

  • I wasn’t wishing death on Al. Just wondering if he was dead. Jumping to conclusions, are we?

  • Get Russell out of there now!

    Get him out of there!!!

  • JaFatass threw it right to him! Right to him! He’s horrible! Put Frye in! Frye will pick this defense apart!

  • Nice throw, Russell.

  • Besides ATDHE .net what’s the other site to see the game? Anyone?

  • We sure are stretching the field!

  • We have to put Frye in on the next series. Russell is useless!

  • raidermarty

    Another slow start…..

  • Plunketthead


    I hate when that happens and it happens a lot and it happens fast

  • Guys, I blame Russell. He’s horrible. He’s throwing interceptions, he’s overthrowing receivers, and, he’s missing tackles now on defense! We have to get Frye in there.

  • Tonio

    where’s our d… still in Oakland?

  • Florida Pete

    cable: mr davis… who do you want rnning the ball this weekend…

    davis: who do you got…

    cable: mcfadden and bush…

    davis: what round did we get bush…

    cable: 4th…

    davis: what round did we get mcfadden…

    cable: mcfadden…

    davis: always play your best player…

    cable: yessir

  • with this pace it will end 0-80 yuck :/

  • raidermarty

    C’mon Offense let’s get some points

  • Florida Pete

    so the browns are hammering away at us…

    gaining 10 yards a pop on the ground…

    they get close to the goal line and…

    they decide to pass…

    and settle for a field goal…

    clearly cable went to the same coaching academy as the Browns leadership…

  • Is Frye in yet? Or is it still Russell? I can’t watch.

  • RaidingTexas

    Anyone have a vid link?

  • JaWorthless

    Maybe Frye is hungover from the wedding last night

  • kidseven

    You need to download some free software. Follow prompts. Seems to work well. Game is clearer than most links.

    Good luck.

  • I wouldn’t download anything, guys. If you can’t find a link that plays it on their website, forget it.

  • Tonio

    or try justin.tv

  • Tonio

    we got Bush.

  • GForce21

    Hooray, Jamarcus Russells lead apologist, the Real MaddenRaider is here.

    Trust me, everyone here wishes Jamarcus didn’t suck. Unfortunately, his 3TDs and 10 picks isn’t screaming start me, nor does his general attitude. Just can it, maybe next year he will figure it all out, but I doubt it.

    With your incessant propping up of Russell, who hardly deserves it, you would think that you were getting paid by him or are related to him. Let it go.

  • raidermarty

    keep the drive alive!!!!!!!!!

  • Another poorly conditioned Raider injured.

  • GForce, I wish Frye didn’t suck.

  • RaidingTexas

    Madden, I generally agree – I wouldn’t download from an unheard of software maker like this. However, I went to CNET to get the scoop on that Veetle player a few minutes ago. You can download it from them, they tested it and it’s clean of malware, etc. The quality is great. I’m watching it now.

  • raidermarty

    10-3 C’mon RAIDERS fight back

  • GForce21

    He is starting and your boy isn’t. Guess that speaks volumes.

  • Florida Pete

    clairty is very good with veetle…

  • Florida Pete

    very quick download…

  • raidermarty

    Shaughnessy is playing some ball

  • Tonio

    yeahhhh that’s what I’m talking about….go D

  • raidermarty

    Alright defense!!!!

  • Mike Davis 36

    MR must be pissed — defense seems to be coming around.

  • RaidingTexas

    Nice series – two sacks!

  • Raiding Texas, CNet is cool. I’m talking about the sites that have hacked games. You’d have to be insane to download any software they tell you you need to see the game.

  • Tonio

    damn…c mon higgins

  • Undisciplined, uncoached, rudderless. The Oakland Raiders.

  • RaidingTexas

    Johnnie has to catch those. Unacceptable.

  • Mike Davis 36

    Higgins has been afraid to come across the middle since Weddle clocked him in the opener.

  • Nice throw. Russell. Right on the money.
