    Slot will split D’s and send them scrambling in every direction, can our team pull it off? Could help us immencely. We have always kept teams off ballance, why change now?

    It isn’t going to be one injury after another, IT HAS BEEN one injury after another. This hamstring is going to bother him for some time believe me because he is a quick twitch muscle type. Everytime he wants to burst he’s going to be thinking about it. That alone could cause him to injure something else, he’s just injury prone that’s the bottom line. The work they did at the start of camp to lessen these types of injury didn’t even help him.

    He’s just like Chaz an injury waiting to happen, it’s that simple. There are too many HB’s that can help us one just signed with the Broncos. I’m hoping Rock sticks because Bennet is just like DMC or else he would’ve had a decent career but can’t stay healthy.

    According to the Twitter account of Raiders RB Michael Bush, free agent Justin Fargas has agreed to sign with the Broncos.
    ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms that Fargas is en route to Denver and scheduled for a Tuesday night physical. The Broncos need warm bodies at tailback with Knowshon Moreno, Correll Buckhalter, and LenDale White all hurt. Fargas will probably be no more than preseason fodder for the Broncos.

    Tj, ?, Are the trainers to blame for not training these players to develope the area’s to aleviate having these injuries, or are the players doing other thing on their own?

    Tough to swallow that among our “big 3″ drafted on offense in recent years, it may equate to minimal return. We all know Russell is gone, so that was a waste of time/money/draft pick.

    DMAC maybe will be a “luxary” this season, and someone we unfortunetley can’t depend on. My screen name is in dedication to M.Bush, so obviously I’m on board with him carrying the bulk of running plays. I think with the proper condtioning he could pan out to be the 1st round pick he could of been, (had he not broken his leg.) If DMAC does by some miracle manage to to stay healthy, I see Hue Jax utilizing him in many creative ways. (Not pounding him up the middle-*cough* Cable.)

    We have all been hearing positive things in regard to DHB but I need to see it in a regular season game when it matters. I like DHB’s attitude and work ethic but no matter how good he becomes it will probaly never balance out to where he was taken in the draft. I underatand you try to bring some reality to this blog and I appreciate that, but I still would like to see how the season unfolds. The Raiders are used to bad breaks and things not going there way for quite a while now. I’m a big believer in karma and maybe it’s time this thing gets turned around. BTW I love Fargas for his heart and dedication but we are realistically better off without him. I will welcome him back in 5 years as an assistant coach :)

    Trainers can only do so much, you as an athlete have to know your body and what it takes to stay healthy and in top conditon. I would bet dollars to doughnts that DMC didn’t stretch properly before practice. You’d be very surprised how just stretching can cut down n a lot of injuries. Guy’s with quick twitch fibers need to stretch a lot more than someone who doesn’t have that body type.

    They go throught stretching excercising before every practice but DMC should know he needs to warm up his body before practice or a game or else he has a hightened chance of injury.
