Davis would like Ryan’s assessment of Russell

Former Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan would love a second chance to interview for the Raiders head coaching job with Al Davis, according to the USA Today.

Ryan was careful not burn any bridges with the Raiders after moving on to Cleveland to be the defensive coordinator for Eric Mangini, speaking glowingly of Al Davis in the days leading up to the Browns-Raiders game in Week 16.

He also gave a review of JaMarcus Russell that might appeal to Davis.

“The backup QB (Russell) is the one I thought would be a superstar by now,” Ryan said. “He had that 77 rating his rookie year. I’m a little surprised he hasn’t become the superstar. I’m kind of hoping he doesn’t get in the game. That kid can throw it through a storm. I think the young man’s a good kid.”

    Ryan…?!? please, no! If Al is canning Cable, then what better time to get a real, experienced name coach and a real GM, to not only get this team turned around but also to put some fans in the stands.

    but, in reality Al will run things til the day he dies, I seriously think that, he’ll be sending in plays from the nursing home on his Blackberry while watching the game on NFL network; picture it, he’ll be laying there with his Raider blankie and sheets and pillowcase, all hooked up to machines and punching in a sinmple play that Jamarcus can understand; ah but for another interception, another loss, and another losing season.

    Attention, Fine Gentlemen of the Blog:

    Our pal, KrappyKell, has been suffering from a debilitating case of Alzheimer’s and he needs our help!

    Anything you can donate to the poor old fool will help in his recovery – vanilla yogurt, bedpans (new or used), pajamas with feet, marshmellows, Arby’s coupons, any movie on DVD starring Julia Roberts or Mandy Moore and as much prescription pain medication as you can find laying around your mom’s condo.

    Fellow bloggers, we’ve relied on our blog pal Krappy for years now to give us a daily offering of deranged nonsense and now its time for us to give back!

    Haiti can wait!

    And Krappy, if you’re able to process this information in your current condition, you need to forget about kicking off construction on the Swiss chalet until at least until 2011.

    That’ll give the doctors enough time to get you committed to a proper, caring institution.

    Raider75 goes into an elevator, looks up and sees this HUGE black guy standing next to him. The big guy sees Raider75 staring at him, looks down and says, “7 feet tall, 350 pounds, 20 inch prick, 3 pound left testicle, 3 pound right testicle, Turner Brown.”

    Raider75 faints and falls to the floor. The big guy kneels down and brings him to, shaking him. The big guy asks.. “What’s wrong with you?”

    In a weak voice Raider75 says, “What EXACTLY did you say to me?”

    The big dude says, “I saw your curious look and figured I’d just give you the answers to the questions everyone always asks me. I’m 7 feet tall, I weigh 350 pounds, I have a 20 inch prick, my left testicle weighs 3 pounds, my right testicle weighs 3 pounds, and my name is Turner Brown.”

    Raider75 says, “Turner Brown!…Sweet Jesus, I thought you said, “Turn Around!!”

    Stupid joke, Raider75. The Obama spinoff of that joke is actually funnier. Where Obama and a parrot walk into a bar. The bartender asks, “where’d you get that”, and the parrot says, “kenya”.

    ……..

    I saw Shefter this morning. He said… “While no one knows for sure what Al Davis will do, the consensus around the league is that sweeping changes are coming. Not only will Cable be fired, but a handful of assistant coaches as well.”

    Al should be reaching out to Pete Carmichael, Jr.
    Offensive Coordinator for the New Orleans Saints

    Maine, what coverage? Nobody cares about the Raiders. ESPN has given the Raiders a mass total of about 3 seconds per day. “No news on Raiders and Cable”. That’s it. Buried at the end of sportscenter, when they’re just cracking jokes and making fun of stuff. After they’ve show all of the day’s highlights, and covered all of the day’s important stories. I’d think the Raiders didn’t even exist anymore if it wasn’t for the local media. It’s been all McGuire, Kiffin, Arenas, and Haiti, all week. Raiders = irrelevant.
