    i hust got my jamarcus russell workout tape in the mail,and its a blank?

  • djohnnyg

    4eva…thanks for waking me up. I hope Russell DOES end up in pro wrestling. Payback is a beyotch isn’t it? Now it’s time for Russell to beg teams for another chance to show he really DOES have it, and he’ll promise to actually try now.

  • Mistabr0wn

    SeyGlen how does it feel to lick Russells nuts for 3 years only to see him go down like this ?

  • Mistabr0wn

    The added bonus of getting J Campbell is KKKell, TJ, and SeyGlen cant use race as a weapon!

    The J Campbell era begins!

    Its funny to read what professionals who don’t follow the Raiders think.


    McClain one ot he “biggest reaches” in the draft. HA!!!

    “Alabama OLB Rolando McClain(notes): It’s not so much that McClain isn’t worth a top 10 pick, but in going eighth overall to the Raiders, Oakland gets a 3-4 inside guy and jettisons Kirk Morrison, breaking even in the end.”

  • Seymour Bush

    Who were the Big Winners in this draft?

    Raiders, Raider fans, Raider Defense, Tom Cable, Al Davis.

    Who were the Big Losers in this draft?

    Kirk Morrison, Jamarcus Russell, RealMaddenRaider, koolkell and mistabrOwn because mistabrOwndildo is a perennial loser.

    SeyGlen Im on my deck in the sun having a Hef with a slice of lemon enjoying this great day.

    Go pet your cat

  • kseven

    Largely ignored in all of this good news is that a “geeked” Tom Cable is much less likely to beat women or assistant coaches than a “frustrated” Tom Cable.

    Playoffs? You arent generally an idiot like most on here but your approaching that title by going the playoff route. Wheres the improvements gonna be on the 0-line, rb and DT? Campbell is cabable but he cant thorw from his back. Come on man, dont be dumb.

  • aig

    This is the best draft in the last 10 years. Why? We got rid of Jawalrus as our starting QB. He may stick around but he aint starting this year. Just by that alone, we should be competitive. We couldn have been an 8-8 or 7-9 team had Jawalrus not played at all with last year’s roster.

    Now with almost a complete makeover on the D side and some new faces on the Oline, we will be 10-6 this year with either Campbell or Grad.

    Congrats Al. You’re still the man.

  • Mistabr0wn

    SeyGlen, your boy JaMeatloaf is gone. You and priest can give each other reach arounds until the pain subsides.


  • fat kidd

    russell contract changed to all you can eat

  • Mickey Rat

    Love this draft and the trade moves made before and during the draft. No doubt Uncle Al is still making the final decisions, but I believe this draft and the other moves around it have Cable’s fingerprints on it. It could very well be Cable who is the one whispering in Al’s ear. After all, if you listen to what Cable has been saying, it has turned into the exact moves the franchise has demonstrated in the past week. The “no knuckleheads” effect. Al has to trust someone. It might as well be his head coach. No one else that I know of is in that inner circle (except maybe John Madden). What do you guys think?

  • RaiderRon

    I knew it wouldnt take long…. “we will be 10-6 this year” LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Same song, different year.

    Will Japorkchop’s next “career: be???

    Hip hop
    WWE rasslin’

  • I went to my son’s football game this morning, talked to one of the kids parents (big 49’r) he said “what are you guys thinking getting rid of Kirk? He has been one of the elite LB in the league the past few years”

    I’m actually happy about that move if you ask me! He couldn’t stop the run! I know he lead the team in tackles every year, but thats because the rest of the team can’t tackle!

    Rolando is a great ILB if you ask me!
    I bet we won’t be ranked 29th against the run next year!

  • Raider J

    Campbell to Schillens, Murphy, Miller and Ford is the future. Russell and HeyBey can restructure their contracts, sit and learn.

    How bout Big Chunky.

  • Carl Weathers

    Everybody seems to put to much thought into what individual players salary. Like Russell got paid 60 mil Davis should give him some more time… BS

    Think of it as a team has to be under a certain cap. If Jafatass wasn’t on the team, that number would still be right under the cap. Money gets spent all the same. Cut the waste of skin, swallow the 3 million hit for the year and put his other 6 towards getting the rookies signed.

    Have a good life after you piss away that money loser.

    best draft i seen from the raiders in years! proud of the team for a change.


    On paper, this is the best draft in the modern era for the Raiders… You’d have to go back 40+ years to see one better , if that….

  • BabsBG

    Can’t believe that they already have jerseys for Rolando McClain at http://alturl.com/z2mb
