Henderson signing official

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010 at 2:12 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Checked out Raiders transactions page following on-line chat and John Henderson is listed as being signed.

Confirmed before chat Henderson was at the Raiders OTA today and that attendance was pretty good, considering players were coming in for only one day of practices and meetings instead of three.

    Al thinks that adding beef to the LB core will be enough to stop the run. I think this strategy is Tyler Brayton all over again.

    Morrison 240
    Howard 240
    Ricky Brown 235

    Trevor Scott 256
    Rolando Mclain 254
    Wibley 255
    =========================
    Wrong comparison…
    Brayton sucks!
    The run should be improved, but what concerns me is pass coverage w/ these LB’s.

    ++++++++++++++++++++=

    Agreed.. looks like we will be geared to stop the run, but now teams will try to go pass happy against us…

    good thing is NAM takes away half the field, so i like our chances…
    =============
    Plus….
    Our D-line should help our pass coverage by getting pressure on the QB.

    LMN,

    LOL
    Don’t add me with “you guys”. I’m not pissed at you or your country, but you you said “drop that stupid sh-”, and you asked me if I was stupid, so I went stupid on you for a few minutes. lol I will not lie to you, I liked it I always treated you with respect, but I don’t appreciate you being wrong and then calling me and my opinions stupid.

    Scott drafted as a tweener DE and has one year experiance as a LB. Wimbley and Groves drafted as a DE and have a few years experiance playing as a pass rushing LB.

    I just think the AFC as a whole is ripe for change as far as the top teams go.

    ***

    Agreed. SD is done

    NE could be too. Stealers for certain

    Texans could rise this year, but we say that every year about them and they’ve never made it to 10 wins or playoffs

    ++++++++++++++++++++==

    totally agree… changing of the guard…
    SD is a mess right now with the FA situation.
    Pittsburghs HC may be on the hot seat…
    NE has a not openly but disgruntled QB, and issues up front.

  • RNOraiderFan

    Also a little rule to football is that a good pass rush and blitz is also called a run blitz.

  • http://atm Raider O

    That’s why we need TH. He is the pure OLB on the roster with real speed, and he is the best cover LB on the roster. We need him!

  • RNOraiderFan

    To run blitz efectivly you ust have great run support safety play. Branch and Mitchell are both in the box type safeties.

  • inonewordraider

    Michael or Magic would have had better game 7′s than Kobe

  • Thec07

    I beleive we can finnally get rid of the term
    “Coverage Sack”…..

  • RaiderRockstar

    Aren’t Scott and Wimbley both converted pass rushing D ends? Playing them at LB may be a sign that we are finally going to blitz often

    ***

    Scott played DE up until they got tired of seeing T-How getting destroyed on run plays so they moved him to WLB

    Wimbley played pass rushing OLB in Cleveland’s 3-4 defense

    Groves played DE with Jax and they switched to a 3-4 defense at some point last year so he got some work in as a pass rushing OLB too

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Agree 100% on Thomas Howard. I don’t think both converted DEs will start, Howard should start @ WLB.

  • RNOraiderFan

    Happy the last few posts have been about Raider football. enough with the Lakers and the lawn faries

    I stole Lawn Fairies from my son. He plays H/S football and the soccer seanson runs along with the football season. They are always fighting for pratice field space. The football players call the soccer player Lawn Fairies.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Howard should start @ WLB.

    ***

    I doubt he will, unless Wimbley or Scott bombs in coverage completely …

    I see Howard playing exclusively on 3rd downs (passing downs) unless somebody gets hurt

  • RNOraiderFan

    Thec, I’m down with those guys, call up Al and tell his arse to get on it!

    If Tom Cable wasn’t still hanging around the Raiders I would say we could go 10-6 this season….but since Cable’s losing ways are still smelling up the joint I am thinking 7-9…which would far exceed Cable’s normal winning % thanks to Hue Jackson.

    they say bad call here too, but maybe it was because of the hold inside the field..

    but if “they” wanted any to win, it was the USA.. so drop that stupid sheit..

    _______________________________________________________

    I remember saying drop the stupid sheit and I mean that… because nobody wants any team to lose or win, so that “they” thing is stupid, american conspiracies are not fit here…

    and IF “THEY” (whoever “they are) wants a team to win “they want USA to win, because if the World Cup goes well for the americans it goes well for FIFA, they will get tens of thousands fans of the sport in the states (if not houndreds of thousands)

    calling you stupid, I cant recall or find in post… not yet anyway…

    are you stupid? i said you got robbed? but thats sports, just as we got robbed, against Holland we should have been 11 players against 10, but thats how it goes..

    still 2-2 is okay, given you were behind 0-2..

    I will eat my humble pie with Celtic green chicken gravy.

    Worse finals game I have ever watched in NBA history and I only watched 1/2 the game, but I give them their credit. I still say the NBA is nothing like it was when Magic and Kareem played. The focus and intensity is just not there anymore. Even a horrific Kobie looked better than all the other players on the court. NO B-ball IQ, no team play, no pure jump shooters in the NBA.

    The Celtics have this game in the bag tonight. I am sorry to all my LA buddies but a veteran savy team like the Celtics that play together can come up big on a stage like tonight. Bryant can’t carry that team two nights in a roll. Rondo is going to have a big game tonight running the floor, my friend. Ray Allen big time stress shooter. He will knock down some big shots tonight.

    Sorry, I have kept my mouth shut the whole series but I just have to call it on this one.

    glad you call it, come back win the fakers win….

    Seymour and Houston will rotate as base end. Sho Nasty will start opposite LT and get after the QB.

    Seymour-Kelly-Henderson-ShoNasty

    Houston-Bryant-Joseph-Richardson = 2nd string

    That was unwatchable basketball.

    yeah this socia1ist school-system some claim we have isnt all bad =)

  • CJ Legend 34

    I will add for what it is worth that Bryant did not carry the team as predicted but Rondo’s scoring was terrible. Speaking of Rondo I heard someone earlier actually calling him one of the Top 5 players in the NBA. LMAO!!!! Not even close. Ray Allen played like he was old on offense I guess it was to much D for him to check Kobie.

    Kobie was the guard and the center tonight. I have to give him his props. His shot was off but like a real player he crashed the boards to kepp them in the game. Real players find ways to win games.
