    What up Nation?

    Man it’s been wild down here in the N.O.
    That Saints win yesterday was surreal for this city. People were in the stands hugging each other and crying. It was like a huge church service. Then it got really wild outside. People around the city were shutting down streets and not just the small ones. The whole city partied in the streets in EVERY neighborhood and most were popping fireworks. That seen you all saw of Bourbon Street was the way all neighborhoods were last night. Even the cops had their sirens on full blast and not messing with anyone. It was all love down here.

    I watched from home with the family draped in my JaMarcus jersey from (Vegas Raider) and Raiders beanie. But I had fun with everyone else. People were partying with pictures of their fathers and mothers who passed away just to allow their spirit and memory enjoy the victory. EVERY neighborhood sounded like a stadium with loud cheering and music. Thousands did not make it to work today.

    Tebow has rough first day at Senior Bowl
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 25, 2010 7:53 PM ET
    Already tired of Favre Watch 2010? Then can I interest you in a little Tebow Watch?

    We pass along reviews of Tebow’s first day at Senior Bowl practice with the knowledge that the buildup to the NFL Draft will be a long one, with many ups and downs for Tebow. Monday was a downer.

    Lindsay Soto on NFL Network: Tebow fumbled the first snap from center, then botched roughly 5-6 more during the day. Tebow is used to playing out of shotgun.

    Chris Mortensen on Twitter: “First impression from NFL folks on Tebow at Senior Bowl — it is indeed going to be a challenging process for him.”

    Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times: “I’m on the sideline at the Senior Bowl practice and let’s just say Tim Tebow is not exactly lighting it up. Horrible mechanics and accuracy.”

    Tebow will get a chance to rebound in the next three days of practice on NFL Network.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    don’t we already have a QB who can’t take snaps from under center ???

  • http://ibbahttp://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo249/the408RAIDER/749px-I-420svg.png 4evaRaider

    Pete….I think all the talk about Tebow in here is warranted.After Gradkowski we are thin,lol,at QB.I think Minnesota takes Tebow in the 1st round so he wont be available anyway.Soo at some point in this draft we need 2 address the QB.situation.Also our run defense was atrocious at best last season….

  • http://tada Florida Pete

    Tebow won’t be available to us, unless we take him at no. 8…

    Jags will take him with their pick…

    i’m just amazed at all the Tebow love on here…

    watching him play is strange… the way he hands off… the way that whole offense worked…

    in the pros… Tebow will be occasionally handing the ball off to a DT… yes, a DT… because he’s in a shotgun… and then runs toward the line of scrimmage with the ball and hands off just prior to reaching the LOS… very strange… and it won’t work in the pros…

    yes, he won… a lot… but the training he received at the college level will not translate well to the pros…

  • NorthernD

    There’s a lot of talk now that the Jags won’t bite with their first pick and may wait until the 2nd. After the reports, he should last until then.
    Either way, there’s no chance of him sitting on the bench for long. First time the starter throws a pick, the fans will be screaming for him.

    Just found out, he’s doing a 30 second ad during the superbowl about ” pro-life, pro-family” stuff. That might scare a few teams off. Probably will be a bible belt city that takes him.

  • NancyGayFan

    Jerry Mac had his motha’f'ing crony post this at 3:30 am…

  • NancyGayFan

    Oh, and even with Grad, this QB unit we have is horrible. I love how Grad comes in, plays ok at best, but since Russell was so bad, it made Bruce G look like a God.

    Seriously Raider fans, don’t sound like such dopes applauding Grads work and acting like he’s the future when all he did was mop up and play the role of a decent pro QB after Russell’s dreadful outings.

    I swear, Raider fans have to be complete morons…

    Well, not all, but many in comparison to other fan-bases.

  • http://ibbahttp://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo249/the408RAIDER/749px-I-420svg.png 4evaRaider

    I disagree NancyGayFan….

    Jon Becker in on his game ;}

  • hwnrdr

    Good Morning Nation!!!
    Hey, I will applaud Grads work because it shows the kind of work that our “starter” has to do. Never said he was the best qb, but…he is the best we have right now!!!

  • DIRT-LOT FOOTBALL

    GOOD MORNING SPORT’S FAN’S,NEW ORLEANS IN SUPER BOWL, THE APOCOLYPSE IS UPON US…

  • http://ibbahttp://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo249/the408RAIDER/749px-I-420svg.png 4evaRaider

    Well it usually takes a QB 2-5 years of learning before they are put into games.We hit Gradkowski in his 4th year.So he was finally ready to play QB in the nfl.What I think is funny is people calling him a “journey-man” QB….lol a journey-man has at least 4 years in his chosen field,so actually this will be Gradkowski’s 1st year as a starter,even tho he came in last season and with T.B.

    Grads showed what hard work and perseverance can do for ya….plus his ace in the whole is that % completion thing….I think Gradkowski will start here for a long time.I sure hope so anyway

    Morning Raider Nation, 4evaRaider, Hwnrdr, DIRT-LOT, and anyone I missed.
    Just a little humor to start the day:

    Dead man walking.

    An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-female biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders some coffee.

    After sitting there for a while, he yells to the waitress;

    ‘Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?’

    The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says; ‘Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things:

    1. The bartender is a blonde woman with a baseball bat.
    2. The bouncer is a blonde woman with a Taser.
    3. I’m a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate.
    4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter.
    5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler.
    ‘Now, think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?’

    The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters;

    ‘No…not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.’

  • http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXj7I1RzLSE&feature=related exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    A crusty old golfer comes in from a round of golf at a new course and heads into the grill room. As he passes through the swinging doors he sees a sign hanging over the bar:

    COLD BEER: $2.00
    HAMBURGER: $2.25
    CHEESEBURGER: $2.50
    CHICKEN SANDWICH: $3.50
    HAND JOB: $50.00

    Checking his wallet to be sure he has the necessary payment, the old golfer walks up to the bar and beckons to the exceptionally attractive female bartender who is serving drinks to a couple of sun-wrinkled golfers. She glides down behind the bar to the old golfer.

    “Yes?” she inquires with a wide, knowing smile, “May I help you?”

    The old golfer leans over the bar, “I was wondering, young lady,” he whispers, “Are you the one who gives the hand-jobs?”

    She looks into his eyes with that wide smile and purrs: “Yes Sir , I sure am”

    The old golfer leans closer and into her left ear whispers softly, “Well, wash your hands real fuking good, cause I want a cheeseburger.”

    Good Morning Exla…
    Good jokes to start off the morning! The blonde one is funny!!!

  • http://ibbahttp://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo249/the408RAIDER/749px-I-420svg.png 4evaRaider

    LMAO Exla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    LOL @ Exla’s jokes!

    Very Nice.

  • RaiderRockstar

    it’s amazing to me how many people don’t want us to draft Tebow (even in round 3 or 4) because of his faith & religious beliefs

    what a bunch of scumbags

  • RaiderRockstar

    actually, never thought I’d say this…

    Ricky made a great point yesterday to those people who said Russell (even as bad as he is) is still a better option than Tebow.

    He said “how do you possibly get a lower grade than the worst starting QB in the NFL?”

    something along those lines. it was funny

    I want a QB competition. I don’t want it handed to anybody because none of them have proved it in my opinion.

    Russell, Frye, Gradkowski, Losman, Southwick & Tebow

  • RaiderRockstar

    Brett Favre & Pat Williams are both considering retirement.

    trade Russell & Warren for Steve Hutchinson!

    LMN,

    sure you would and I wouldn’t give 5Cents to see it. Most of you wouldn’t know the logical thing to do if it bit yu in the ass. Give me a freakin’ break. I read this idiotic crap all the time and maybe 1.5% of you have a clue the rest are out in lalala land.
    _________________________________________________________

    well apparently no-one will pay to see the games now either, huh?

    and its rather well documented that Al hasnt done any smart things since the late 70′s thats a slow decline for 30 years… Im pretty sure Al paid Matt Millen to be Lions GM, because then he knew at least one franchise would be worse than the raiders…

  • http://tada Florida Pete

    my prediction…

    unless we do an unexpected free agent signing…

    the winner of the QB competition will be Losman…

  • RaiderRockstar

    JaWalrus will be like Culpepper for Minny in 2004.

    4700 passing yards & 39 TD’s!

    LOL

  • RaiderRockstar

    Al will probably cut loose Gradkowski, Frye & Losman.

    then bring back Walter, Tui & Otis.

    that way Russell enters the season as the unquestioned starter again …

  • http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXj7I1RzLSE&feature=related exlaraiderseasonticketholder

    If you thought Andre Smith was Mr. Man-boobs at the combine last year, check out Terrence Cody NT from Alabama. Tipped the scales at 370 lbs. If JaLoser stood next to him, he would look thin.

    Looking at the initial problems of Tebow and Cody, Javier Arenas sounds great!!

    I’m interested in how Arenas, Syd’Quan Thompson, Daryl Washington, George Selvie, Daryl Sharpton, Ciron Black and a few other’s play out.

    —”There are reportedly “rumblings at the Senior Bowl” that the Bears can’t find an offensive coordinator because candidates are turned off by the prospect of having to coach Jay Cutler. The perception, presumably, is that Cutler ran ex-Bears OC Ron Turner out of Chicago, which it would be hard to disagree with. It would also be hard to argue that Turner did a good enough job in the first place. There is a more logical perception that OC candidates don’t want to work under head coach Lovie Smith, who’s entering a “win or else” situation in 2010.”—

    So coaching Cutler is apparently a worse situation than being under contract with Al and the Raiders…

    well thank you Jay, Hue Jackson just signed with us because of you… LOL

    Jay Cutler threw for over 3600 yards & 27 TD’s last year, plus 1 rush TD. finished with 7 wins

    terrible WR corps and O-Line. many injuries on defense
