Yet to be signed are first-round pick Rolando McClain, second-round pick Lamarr Houston, fourth-round pick Jacoby Ford and seventh-round pick Stevie Brown.

  • Vegas,

    I have to disagree my friend. I think Huff is a great cover DB, and that is his best Skill. As far as him being a great tackler, I think a lot of people would disagree with that. I watched the man miss a lot of tackles in the last 4 years. He was much better last season, but I still wouldn’t call bm a great tackler. Branch is a great tackler, and so is Nnamdi.

    Nnamdi for president!

  • J,

    Great Logic! According to your logic Stu was a great tackler too. He was 3rd/ 4th on the team in tackles!! lol

    Argue all you want about our DBs as long as you all can admit that Routt sucks!!!!

    I have no beef with any of your opinions on the rest of the DBs. But Routt has to suck, it is fact!!!!!

    Why we have not dumped this guy is beyond me. When we franchised this cat I pucked in my mouth when I read it.

    By the way Stu was the worse safety we ever had. He was no Rod Woodson coming out of Purdue. Why he got as much credit as he did by Raider Nation is beyond me. It must have been the beard.

    Stuart Schweigert is an Omaha Nighthawk now. I guess that is as close as he could get back to the Raiders.

    Maybe Stuie could get Russel a job. He could be a pulling guard when he is not pouring cough syrup down his throat.

    Russell in UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks roster



    Earlier today, we posted an item regarding the NFL-heavy roster unveiled by the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks.

    Now, another name has been added:* JaMarcus Russell.

    Click the link.* There it is.* Russell’s name, between Chike Okeafor and Charles Grant.

    If this is a mistake — and based on some of the other stuff that has landed on the UFL’s website it could be — the fledgling league desperately needs to get its sh-t together if it ever is to have any hope of being taken seriously.

    Meanwhile, we’re trying to find out what’s going on.* It’s possible that the players in question are merely on the Nighthawks’ “dibs” list.* The website makes no such distinction.

  • B ecause DHB has lifted the top off their defense they cannot over committ to the run. That’s when the offense can dictate play and the defense is in a guessing game….

    If DHB has suddenly convinced them that he can catch a pass.
