Preseason schedule; QBs and TMZ


The Raiders will open up with a pair of preseason games on the road at Dallas and Chicago before finishing at home with San Francisco and Seattle.

Only weekends have been assigned so far, with specific days to be added later.

Submitted for your approval (or disapproval), a pair of TMZ links about the Raiders quarterback position.

Although it’s not likely to make the team’s media guide detailing the rich history of the Raiders, chances are its the first time the franchise got a pair of TMZ links within a 24-hour period.

The first includes a picture of JaMarcus Russell at a craps table at the Palms in Las Vegas. The headline? “Heavy Bettor.”

Not a great photo, but it’s hard to see the “significant difference” in Russell’s weight alluded to by Willie Brown.

The second says quarterback Donovan McNabb has no plans on wearing silver and black.

He would “refuse” a trade, according to the report.

While I’m not convinced McNabb will be traded to the Raiders, let’s see if he’ll really threaten to sit out a season with $11.2 million on the line if Al Davis swings the deal.

Chances are it would be similar to the Richard Seymour trade last season. McNabb would sit at a podium with Davis, talk about how he always wanted to be a Raider and refute every report which indicated otherwise.

And thus collect his $6.2 million roster bonus and $5 million salary.

    Ad will pick Dez Bryant because he can.

    Is that your pick for the “Player Al will choose” list?

    I’m all for picking OL in 3rd and 4th if even for depth but those guys may not start right away


    I think Matthew Tennant, Ciron Black, Jason Fox & Kyle Calloway can start right away … just my opinion though

    I’m high on Black and Calloway. They are big and play with power and give move in a power ZBS or a counter or man blocking scheme.

    Tennant is solid….but he is weighs less than 300 pounds and Fox barely weighs 300.

    The Raiders need bigger and more powerful O-Linemen who are mobile for their size.
