Campbell a spectator

Quarterback Jason Campbell wasn’t participating in practice Tuesday during the 20-minute media window as the Raiders started a shorts and shells workout, according to beat writer Steve Corkran.

Everything appeared to be status quo from Monday. Running back Michael Bush (fractured thumb) was not present.

One player who was not accounted for was tight end Eric Butler, signed Aug. 19.

The Raiders had to cut one player to get to 75 players today.

If Butler was let go, the Raiders are left with three tight ends _ Zach Miller, Brandon Myers and John Owens.

The Raiders normally carry three tight ends on the 53-man roster, but considering they’ve used offensive lineman (most often Erik Pears) as an extra tight end in short yardage situations, it’s conceivable that when the dust clears after the final cut, only Miller and Myers will remain.

More to come later . . .

    TJ: the 49ers are a PHYSICAL football team, the Raiders aren’t …

    that why they beat us on Saturday and thats why they’ll beat us in Week 6.

    of course bogus penalties and that TD on special teams helped them out too!

    Why is that? EVERY time we’ve won the big one WE were the tough guys on the block. Maybe therein lies some of the problem. We need to be bigger and badder than the opposition. Our strength coaches may need outsourcing.

    Fieri did Patron shots at our tailgate last year,…Knight is just a crybaby, jealous.

    Plaxico Burress’ work release request turned down

    The Associated Press reports former New York Giants Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress has come up short in his bid for work release during his two-year prison sentence for accidentally shooting himself in the leg at a nightclub, prison officials said Tuesday.

    The state Department of Correctional Services said the nature of his November 2008 crime merited denying his request for a work furlough, which would have let him spend some portion of his time free and working.

    “The serious and negative impact illegal guns have on the community coupled with [the] dangerous nature of the weapon discharging in a public place renders him unsuitable for work release,” the agency said.

    Burress’ lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, didn’t immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Tuesday.

    The request was Burress’ second since he started serving his sentence last September. He can appeal the decision but otherwise can’t reapply for a work furlough until next June.

    Hue needs to implement some more moving the pocket rollout plays within the passing game to protect the QB and buy him more time to throw, because the O-Line is too inconsistent with their pass protection.
    =====================================================

    Needs to be more creative than the Cable version from last year, that’s for sure. Well-timed and well-disguised screens, etc. Keep those rushers honest. Encouraging to see them improving on the screen by so much this year. So, with that, I think you’ll get your wish Dknight.

    =======================================================

    1.)Moving the pocket doesnt work unles you establish the run up the middle first, this creates the play action neccecary for boot legs.

    2.) Rolling the qb out takes away half of the field in terms of available routes for the qb to hit with the pass. Occassionally is ok but you cant have steady diet of this kind of play.

    3.) Campbells strength is THROWING FROM THE POCKET, he is athletic, but he is not a running qb. Rolling him too much would be taking away his best asset. Againevery now and again is fine, like elway, or montana used to do it.

    4.) The best way to slow the rush is misdirection, reverses, screens, and draw plays. We definitly have the speed at the skill positions to make this happen. Im sure we will see them in the regular season. Iv said it before but the ghost reverse motion( fake reverse hand off) with our guys will slow up any pass rush, remember how well it worked for us under trestman, and we wernt nearly as fast then.

  • Norco Bob

    Lol,..thanks old kell,..let me go rewatch the game too,..I must have missed that play,..gosh, how stupid of me…how could I have missed that. lol silly old fool kell.

  • mistic1

    I dont think bringing in another receiver would be beneficial to our team. We have some very young, very talented players that need more game reps. Especially DHB, who I beleive is finding his stride and will be a very good player from us. Bringing in another guy, could take away reps, and destroy the fragie confidence that are guys are building. It is important that DHB learns to deal with the pressure of being number one, he has the talent and the work ethic, he just needs more game time.

    The niners shot their load in a preseason game it was crazy all it did was show the Raiders how to gameplan them. Manusky’s blitzes are very similar to the Cowboy’s he uses Willis and Spikes a lot with sfaties and occasional corners. We can block them up most of the time and get some huge plays. They can’t cover us that much was obvious. If we run on them it’s over….IT’S OVER!!!
    =======================
    Silly babbling old fart…the Niners used the EXACT SAME blitz formations from last year….and here you are thinking they just showed a brand new scheme…

    Slap a duh on ya, Ebonics boob.

    Oh man,..that sick old man kell, is about to post his thoughts on the 3rd play hes studying from the other night…it must be great to be fat and ugly, in your 60`s,..going over details like that…lay off the pork n beans old man.

    Yes. I don’t notice any difference between last years D and this years as far as being physical. That Jet game was an embarrassment. I know its pre-season but it seems like the same ole defense NOT being able to stop the run. I’m convinced that the Raiders could switch uniforms with the ’85 Bears in their prime and STILL not stop the run. It’s embarrassing to get out physically played and get beat up by teams like the Jets and Niners.Is it the D coordinator we have or Cable OR BOTH ?
