First day in the books

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, April 30th, 2010 at 6:18 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders concluded their second minicamp sessions Monday with minimal media intrustion, with most everyone bailing out ofter updating the JaMarcus Russell situation.

Defensive end Trevor Scott was not at practice, his place taken by Quentin Groves.

All media availability takes place before practice.

Practice highlights included a lot of snaps by quarterback Jason Campbell, some good, some not so good.

A couple of first impressions:

– Campbell throws some truly awful looking passes that still find their target,and find it with good timing.

– For a quarterback who is not supposed to be mobile, Campbell gets outside on a rollout pretty quickly.

– Defensive tackle Lemarr Houston and cornerback Walter McFadden, both rookie draft picks, had their NFL welcomes in the afternoon session.

Houston didn’t know he was supposed to be on the field, raced to left end, then had both his helmet and jersey ripped off in a neat move by right tackle Langston Walker.

McFadden found himself victimized in coverage often by a number of different receivers.

Those and other practice observations can be found on my Twitter page.

    What bothers me about this draft is that people are trying to give the credit to Cable. So we blame Al for the bad drafts, and we credit the coaches for the good ones!
    LMAO
    ——————–
    It’s not Cable…it’s basically anybody but Al.

    See, since Gruden and Allen left, Al has, year after year, made some of the dumbest decisions on the planet, both in FA and during the draft.

    This year were basic no brainer common sense picks. Nothing astounding, just basically what 90% of teams would do at that time.

    There in lies the mystery.
    Hard to imagine Al getting a lobotomy.
    However what is easy to imagine is that each year Al is losing it, more and more..and maybe he’s gotten to the point even he knows he can’t follow along, and is taking advice…

    doubtful it’s from Cable, because he always seems to be out of the loop…all that’s assumed is it’s not Al.

    Almost pathetic reading some of you celebrate basically nothing.
    You actually consider it a big accomplishment for a qb to complete passes to someone NOT defended?
    ============================================
    “McClain was flanked by Kamerion Wimbley on the strong side and Trevor Scott on the weak side as the defense played almost exclusively 4-3 for the first practice.”

    Who do you think McClain, Wimbley, Nnamdi and the rest were practicing against azz hole? You and your Xbox?
    ====================
    You need to follow the dots, cross posting pedophile.

    Jerry himself stated much of the passes were with NO DEFENSE.

    What? a liar, a cross poster, a pedophile, AND AN IDIOT TO BOOT?

    Was a rhetorical question, fool.

    Hell…why should I expect YOU to figure it out?
    YOU stated JR was the future of the Raiders.
    YOU stated Crabtree would never sign, that Al was SMART IN PICKING DHB, THE WORST RECEIVER IN THE DRAFT.
    YOU stated Clayton was the leading rusher two years in a row, when HE DIDN’T EVEN TAKE A SINGLE SNAP.
    YOU stated Simms beat out Staley at tackle, YOU DUMBASS, when Simms is his backup.
    YOU stated Gore was going to be released, you moron, that the awesome “Clayton” has his spot.
    YOU stated Montana never had any passion, and was emotionless, DUMBASS…

    And YOU stated you are 30, then stupidly posted “I just bagged a bop that is half my age”…yep…makes you a PEDOPHILE.

    and of course, you’re still my beyotch…

    OH wait…lmao…you also stated the following head up ass moronic take:
    Seymour: “I graduated from college at 20″
    Seymour: (another day) “I owned my own home when I was 19″

    Richochet: “Well, how did you happen to BUY A HOUSE, AND OWN IT, WHEN YOU WERE A FULL TIME STUDENT”?

    Seymour: “Uh…um…oh…gosh..uh…well…HOW DO YOU KNOW I DIDN’T HAVE MY OWN HIT BAND?”

    Classic :mrgreen:
    Classic Oakglenn head up ass, Classic.

    I think we now know why guys like Chaz Schilens and Nick Miller are late round / free agents…injuries. This is probably Schilens last chance here. He hasn’t played a season without missing time since his freshman or sophomore year.

    Something tells me if we cut Russell today Indy, New England or Denver would pick him up, let him sit for two years, watch him mature and then he would win 10+games a year for the next ten years.

    You really don’t have any idea what goes on out on a practice field do you? Why don’t you find your little mommies group, and talk about lamaze class.
    ======================================

    Pay attention, Cross Posting Loser.

    The qb’s wear a black over-jersey…it means DON’T TOUCH ME. If you even brush up against them, coaches are yelling and screaming “BLACK MEANS DON’T TOUCH”

    Receivers? Like Bey? Who normally cringe and tighten up at the prospect of getting hit over the middle? ALSO KNOW THAT THEY WILL NOT BE TOUCHED. WILL NOT BE TACKLED. WILL NOT BE FLATTENED.

    What? Your ignorant ass didn’t know that??

    Let me say it again…THEY’RE PLAYING CATCH. It’s tantamount to flag football defense..no one is worried about getting hurt, because no one WILL GET HURT.

    Now is when you post something that ignores the fact you just got beyotch slapped to the ground, again, and say something juvenile about “oh, why are you hurting my widdle feelings instead of out at the skate park with your kids?”

    Then you can tell us all about your 15 year old conquest.

    jerry mc said veldheer and cambpell looked a lil lean to make an immediate impact this season…better start hanging out at in n out burgers a couple times a week..

    ——-

    That’s easy to fix. You always seat these two on either side of JaMunchass in the cafeteria. They take turns stealing food off of his tray. This helps the team in several ways:

    1) Puts more weight on our new, “lean” OL prospects

    2) Keeps some weight of Russell as he both loses food and burns calories trying to defend the attacking forks

    3) The rookies learn how to read and react to each other, starting the jelling process early for two key cogs of the future OL

    4) Teaches JaClueless how to feel the pressure. He may not notice the pocket collapsing on him, but I bet he definitely has an inner clock ticking on how long he can keep his back turned from a blindside biscuit snag attempt.

    30 year – I also would like to see T.O. signed. He behaved pretty well last season in Buffalo and i think he still has something left. he has always kept himself in great shape. He could be a nice mentor to our youngsters. Seriously, we have no WR, that figures to make the team, who has more than three years in the league. Wouldn’t mind seeing him get in JR’s face either.

    Have you heard this idiot talk lately?

    Theirs a reason Dallas cut him after signing a big contract with him (Remember that giant pop corn bowl signing promotion?) and why the Bills, with alomst no wides cut him?

    He stands around and blathers to the young guys about f’ the League, get yours while you can, don’t stretch out fo catches and hurt your self yadda yadda.

    Maybe he’s not raping chicks and killing dogs but he’s cancer none the less.

    The QB’s wear red jerseys that mean don’t touch. The Raider D wears the black jersey while O wears white.
    Just sayin.

    As far as T.O., where I used to be dead set against it, I now say why not. At least an incentive laden, modest contract. T.O. seems to have mellowed a little with age. No flareups in his Siberian exile known as Buffalo, as far as I know. He’s always been a helluva worker. Raiders WR’s very young and raw.
    While I love Chaz’s potential, he hasn’t been able to stay healthy.
    T.O. knows he’s running out of time and options. Besides, doesn’t it seem like he was always destined to be a Raider? He knows it. Everybody knows it.

    Richochet,

    Bro, PLEASE tell me that you’ve finally watched “Big Fan.” I’m tellin ya… you will LOVE it!

    As for the jerseys, as far as I know, QBs wear red jerseys in practice at every level of play above high school. It’s used universally for all teams, that way no one gets confused when they’re on a new team and forgets which color means stop. Red means stop. Offensive players (other than QB) will wear either the home or away colors, while the defense wears the opposite. Red is QB color for practices, though… I’ve never heard, seen, or been on a team that didn’t follow that rule.

  • buckeyeraider

    Rich-O,
    Have you seen the Americas Game on NFLN about the ’90 G-Men. Hostetler talks about his first traing camp with the Giants. Parcells wants to judge Hoss’s toughness. Parecells yells “This is live, The QB is live”. LT drives Hoss into the ground. He gets up looking out his ear hole, while Parcells is standing there chuckling.

    Those Americas Game by NFL Films are first rate. And ‘ol Hoss was a tough SOB.
