    88?

  • HairyBush

    Well RR you are correct unfortunetley you did not complete the competition in the allotted time frame, perhaps next trivia game you will use those cat like reflexes and pounce lol

  • RaiderRockstar

    I just googled it. I’m right!

    Horton was #88! LOL

    yes

  • HairyBush

    Was that a guess at a common TE #? or google, or a darn good memory on your part?

  • RaiderRockstar

    sorry Hairy.

    my reaction time on the computer is much like Russell’s in the pocket …

  • HairyBush

    question answered

  • HairyBush

    at least you don’t fumble as much

  • RaiderRockstar

    that was a guess. add in a little bit of memory. perhaps the bologna & salami sandwich “brain food” from lunch?

    I just googled to see if I was correct. and I WAS!

    surprised myself more than anything

  • HairyBush

    At least one of my “Jamiracle’s” has been answered. (my wife arrived with chinese food)-Wooooooooooo, to quote the great Ric Flair

  • HairyBush

    I don’t think my other one will come true in regards to the Raiders

    Bring back Frantz Joseph to play MLB.

    ***

    LOL. Where is Raider O?

    “Frantz is the next Rey Lewis”
    ———————–

    He is, he just needs a chance.

  • RaiderRockstar

    nah. I made a mental fumble last week trying to convince N21 that we NEVER used a 3-4 defense last year under the Marshall Plan. He put on the film and proved me wrong …

    I was going to memory only. brain fart I suppose

  • HairyBush

    U think there is a possibility of going to a 3-4 this year?

  • maddenraiderfan

    Didn’t cable just say this morning we aren’t going to a 3-4?

  • HairyBush

    did he?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Madden: yes, Tommy Boy did say that

    but Marshall reserves the right to mix it up and go 3-4 “on occasion”

  • HairyBush

    I guess it doesnt matter what system we use, we don’t have the talent on the DL or the LB’s.

  • RaiderRockstar

    like the Philly game last year …

    defense was pretty outstanding

  • RaiderRockstar

    HB: true

    stop the run!

    draft a nose tackle!

  • HairyBush

    I remember watching that Philly game saying over and over, we won? we won? This was after some embarrasing losses, for those of you who remember.

  • maddenraiderfan

    Yea, we really need a OT and a NT in rounds 1 and 2 if we are going to compete this year I believe. MLB can wait til 3rd+.

  • HairyBush

    Defense was quite solid. (that game anyways)

  • RaiderRockstar

    BBL Nation. gotta run to the other building

  • HairyBush

    Nnamdi=class act!

    BSJ I bet Mr. Laker could break more tackles than Dmac!

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

    We would run the WildLogo offense…

  • hellsbells

    The sturdy DT is not a big playmaker as a pass rusher and doesn’t rack up sacks like some of his competition at the position, but Williams is a huge part of the Tennessee defence. His play up front allows smaller LB like leading tackler Rico McCoy (6’1”, 220lbs) flow to the ball and rack up tackles.

  • hellsbells

    With only 6.5 career sacks, his ability to get to the QB is a question mark but his 15 career QB hurries indicates that he can collapse a pocket and get pressure. There is no question about his hustle though as he puts himself in a position to at least be a 330lbs obstacle, even if he doesn’t necessarily possess the athletic ability, speed or breakdown to make tackles in space and corral smaller, faster players. No, Williams’ game is all about taking up space and eating blockers, which is why he is held in such high regard despite his deficiencies. Williams knows his limitations and plays to his strengths, keeping his game simple if unspectacular. When left single blocked, Williams possess the strength and nasty demeanour to wreak havoc. His stack and shed ability is very good, allowing him to break free in time to make the play at the line of scrimmage.

  • hellsbells

    I listed him as a mid first round pick in my first mock of the year but eventually took him off when the season started as he had a bit of a slow start to the year stat wise and the multitude of fantastic players at the position. His play of late has him rising once again and he appears to have put the ankle injury far behind him. He’s a pretty safe pick as far as DT go thanks to his very simple game and the explosion of 3-4 defences will have someone taking an early flyer on him to plug into the middle of their D.

  • DMAC

    Wassup Nation

  • hellsbells

    PROJECTION: Pouncey is an efficient center with plenty of upside. He is a good enough athlete who can play all inside positions. Is technical sound with solid work effort. Has all the tools needed to succeed at the next level.

    An late riser up the draft boards, a mid first to early second round selection.

    Perfect fit: Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, New Orleans Saints

  • hellsbells

    Overall, Terrence Cody is as good as any other nose tackle prospect to come out of college in recent memory. He has consistently drawn double teams from opposing running games at every other level of football and is a beloved teammate. He gets plenty of praise from other players on the football field and in the locker room. His character questions have been put to rest over the last four years as he has worked hard in the classroom to keep himself eligible and overcome problems that plagued him as a youth. He may not be an every down player but his ability to obstruct blocking schemes and allow for other players to go unblocked and make plays can be priceless for a defense.

    Wow. I just learned Satele is a Mormon. RRS, did we know that? Also, Samson’s dad played LB for the Dolts.

    No wonder the fool can’t block, his morman underwear gets caught in his jock and pulls his pubes.

  • RaiderRockstar

    LOL.

    if Satele could play Center as well as Southwick plays Quarterback we wouldn’t need to pick up Kevin Mawae in FA or draft Pouncey!

    SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers have released wide receiver Demetrius Byrd.

    The Chargers chose Byrd out of LSU in the seventh round of the 2009 draft even though he suffered major injuries in a car accident just days earlier. He spent the season on the non-football injury list.

    anybody interested?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Legedu Naanee is still under contract.

    Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd got tendered.

    Kassim Osgood joined the Jags.

  • Seymour Bush

    I know. I just happen to be a big Naanee fan. So is Norphus Turner.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I think I know what Al Davis gave up for Lent (02/17 – 04/03)

    free agents from other clubs!

    Wimbley was acquired by TRADE. sneaky old man

    Perhaps he’ll go wild from 04/04 – 04/21 trying to gather up scrubs left in FA that nobody else wants?

    we should have just traded Fargas and our 1st rounder to Seattle for Louis Rankin. saved a few bucks

  • Seymour Bush

    Davis likes to pick up guys on the eve of the season at the final cut downs. That’s how we got Andre Rison among others.

    ________________
    Al probably still waits for June 1 cuts too, although they really don’t exist much anymore:

    “Once considered a significant day in the NFL, because it typically signaled the infusion of a second wave of high-profile veteran players into the unrestricted free agent market, June 1 has been rendered all but irrelevant now on the league calendar.”
