    My Uncle Greg owned a bar in San Leandro that Freddie B., The Snake, and many others used to hang at. He gave me a helmet that they all signed over time.

    My mom used to work at a furniture company in Fremont. Gene Upshaw came in one day and snapped some poloroids for me and my bro standing next to his Raider truck. It was live.

    Was it his Ford Bronco with a picture of him in a 3 point stand on the door?????

  • Raider E

    I think he called it the Windsor House.

  • Raider E

    Thats the one. How did you know?

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    I used to live in Fremont Raider E, but I can’t say I ever met any Raiders.
    I did run into Billy Martin once in a bar on Decoto in Union City and I once met Dennis Eckersley.
    Great guys, even if I’m a Giants fan.

  • B-MO

    Haynesworth trade?! Comments? I know he’s kinda a turd, but our Run D would be a huge upgrade.

  • Raider E

    Sadly, I think I might be the only member of my family that has never had a conversation with a Raider player.

  • Raider E

    We would do better trading for a true #1 reciever B-Mo.

  • Raider E

    Vincent Jackson anyone? Yeah right huh?

    I went to school in Pleasanton and he lived right by the school you could see it in his driveway on the way in.

    That would be a very Al Davis pickup. I don’t think the dolts would trade him in the division though.

  • B-MO

    E,

    I think our Young guys might just surprise a lot of people this year. Especially with a reliable QB in Campbell and a great TE in Miller. Just saw Papa interview Jason Campbell on Chronicle Live.

  • B-MO

    AJ Smith would never trade him in the division.

  • Raider E

    I was joking bro. I have hope that our young guys get it done, but thats all we have are young guys. So I would say that they are just the guys. I really wanna see Nick Miller get a chance. I have a penchant for rooting for the underdog.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    We should never even have considered T.O.
    That guy’s time has passed and his attitude never arrived.

    For all we know Chaz will be fine but our receivers are good anyway.
    With Campbell as the announced starting QB, we know we’ll be better in that position too.
    The biggest problem is that our offensive wasn’t good last and this year it’s the same except for one addition.
    Campbell had trouble with the Washinton OL but ours is worse.
    Maybe Cable will have more time to work with it.

  • Raider E

    Do we even have a reciever with 5 years experience?

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    *Offensive line

  • JaMarcus’ name not even spoken here. It’s worse than curse word, like a gypsy voodoo curse that makes you crap your pants

    RAIDERS BUMAYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • B-MO

    I agree….I think Nick Miller could be a nice little Slot Receiver. Let’s be honest though…the O-line will either make or break this team. If Hue jackson can call games that play to the strength of our o-line and not ask them to do too much then we have a chance at the playoffs.

  • Raider E

    I watched the replay of our last game against the Ravens, and have to say our passing game didn’t look bad. Frye looked good. He just got slapped around. Russell pretty much gave that game away. I am gonna say right now that if Campbell cannot take the hits we will have our 8th straight losing season and 3 injured quarterbacks.

  • Thec07

    Campbell throws perfect out to Jacoby Ford vs. Chris Johnson. Rookie double toe taps like a vet before going out of bounds.

    JLH races forward to field punt during special teams session, and drops it. Even with Ford on roster, Raiders would love to see him like 08

    Whats benn up wit dirty?

  • Richard Bentley

    If Chaz can’t make it through what was essentially a walk-through session, what was he doing with Gradkowski, and how is he ever going to make it through the season?? I think we’re in a fix after DHB and Murphy, best case.

  • Thec

    hes just trying to take over the world 1 card table at a time…

  • Thec07

    8, send me the info to the FF, I will play this year…

  • ok we still gotta set it up.. but I will when we do…

  • ElDirty101

    RT @408RAIDER @ElDirty101 Thec says you dont want it in FF… tell Thec I’m gonna take his lunch money. *D-BO VOICE*

  • priesttj

    I think this kid Jacoby Ford is going to surprise some people. And anyone who thinks DHB wont have a good year aint paying attention those two guy’s are football playrs plain and simple they work at it they love it and it mans the world to them.

    James Jett have a good career for an undrafted FA but he never lovd the game it was a business to him and he was a brilliant business man. Expert when it comes to playing the stock market but played the game as if it was a hobby.

    With DHB and JFord these two guy’s love this game and want to be great at it. With their god given talent they can be as good as they choose to be. DHB is going to be scary I’ve ben kind of waiting to see it for myself but just from the kinds of things I’m haring from Jerry I’m already convinced DHB is going to be a beast, an absolute beast.

    Truth…

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    We are finding out why Chaz Schilens was a 7th round pick. The guy should just sit down until he’s fully healed.

    He’s not reliable. Go with Murphy, DHB and JLH in the slot. If Schilens can make it..its bonus points at this point. The guy has been injured every year since his college days.

    Bad feet…not the place to have nagging injuries.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Projecting rookies and expecting game changing contributions are asking a lot. McClain and Houston should contribute…anything after that? Is bonus points.

    Ford, Veldheheer, Campbell, McFadden et al are just trying to learn the game and get on the field. All you got right now is running around in shorts.

    WR – DHB, Murphy, JLH
    OL – Henderson, Gallery, Satele, Carlisle, Walker
    DB – Asomugha, Huff, Johnson, Branch, Routt

    Veterans are going to beat out middle and late round picks most of the time

  • Thec07

    Murphy, DHB and JLH

    +++++++++++++++

    I could ride with that, only question mark is JLH…

  • Thec07

    ++++++++++++

    Not sure I agree with that when it comes to Ford.
    Murphy came in and contributed.. Ford gets a chance
    he will shine…

  • Thec07

    With JLH being rattled by weddle, the slot is up for grabs…

  • aig-raiders

    If Ford can be anything near Murphy, then we are golden.
