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 . . .

    Tim Brown was a solid receiver. Tough as nails. The current number 81 on our team doesn’t represent that number very good.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    I still dont understand why the raiders havent retired his jersey and biletnikoff’s. our greatest receivers in the history of the raiders

    You MUST add Cliff Branch to that list as well bro.

    On the play where DMac got blasted by Willis in the backfield for a loss, it was #45 Reese the fullback that looked right at Willis and decided to run around the corner to take on the CB.

    It was painful, even worse in slow motion replay.

    Yes Reese had a great run created by great blocks, but overall he is week, I’ve seen him “over run” blocks a few times, and has hung the RB out to dry.

    I hope we’re not blinded by one good play by the O-line.

  • Norco Bob

    Whats good bro?…well whats great is EVERY Raider home game wont be shown on tv locally this year,…I love it and so do the Raiders,…what we love even more is that old man kell will be in here crying about it,…we loooove seeing him frustrated….I wont miss a play though, as you know Im at every game.

  • Roch R

    Run should be screen play

  • Norco Bob

    old kell, hows thangs at the grocery store?…seeing any celebs at the deli lately?…hey old kell,…may I forward you some emails?…when you see them you will recognize that you wrote them,..you are one sad old man.

  • JLofty

    Chaz has shown the ability to play at a high level when he has played. That’s all. Sadly for us, that hasn’t been much. But he was a 7th rd pick outta SD and is cheap enough to keep. If he could get healthy you’d have a 6-4 225lb kid with the second best hands on the team who runs a 4.2 and isn’t afraid to go across the middle.
    That’s all. He’ll keep a roster spot for it.
    The Raiders however likely should have pursued some ins or plan b strategy imo. I was not for getting TO as I think he’s done, is too expen$$$ive and likely not part of the team building plan that I see happening. A better pickup would have been TJHouchmanzada (last year) or Chambers (last year) or maybe Ginn Jr or Arnez Battle this off season.
    Or just play McFumble at Wideout. He’s already making the big bucks and I’d like to see him earn it…

  • Norco Bob

    hey old kell,..Mr Davis is stil la billionaire, still in the hall of fame,..and youre still jealous, bitter, angry…broke…frustrated…fat…ugly…and your double life is being slowly exposed.

  • Norco Bob

    Come on now old kell, put that can of pork n beans down,..stop the snivlin…you know Im just messin with ya old buddy…lol.

  • beach

    I have to agree with Priest. The 49ers showed us much more on D than we showed them. I think Stewart also dropped a key 3rd down pass. And there appeared to be little hang time on the punt for a TD. Lecheler does that 1 out of 100 punts. I just think we need to find a reliable kick returner.

  • JLofty

    I thought Ted Ginn Jr was going to us this spring. We needed another WR and def need a PR/KR.
    Other than our kickers and long snapper (Condo=AllPro) the ST is a disaster.

    That’s not the only thing old kell is exposing. Doesn’t he hang in some park in Alameda, exposing himself there as well?

  • cranium68

    Any chance Nick Miller could turn into the Raiders Wes Welker? He can catch the ball – probably the second best hands-receiver after Chaz. Just a thought.

  • Norco Bob

    Parks, the streets,..old kell is seen alot, walking around alameda,..talking to himself…I have friends there,..hes known as the town nut,..famous for hangin in front of grocery stores, just standing around,..talking to himself. hes sick….leads a double life.

  • ALZADOS KNUCKLES

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Yep…thats exactly what I saw as well!

    Luke Lawton more than likely takes Willis head on without hesitating.

    That is why BOTH Lawton and Reece need to be on the team…with Tonga going to the practice squad when Lawton comes back.

  • Norco Bob

    and if you take me up on offer old man, need a weeks notice,..need to get to Costco for bulk case of pork n beans for you.

  • ALZADOS KNUCKLES

    It is my first time there Bob from Norco

  • DKnight007

    I would like to see two other another priorities put in there as well by Coach Cable:

    On defense…..maintaining GAP control and attacking and filling the gap by the D-Line and LB’s must be addressed.

    And on offense….Center and Fullback Blitz pickups!

    No it isnt,..not foolin anyone.

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

    That’s what they want him to be. If he was half of what Welker is, it would be HUGE. Nick has done well against scrubs, we haven’t seen him really go against an opponents ones. That’s a big difference.

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

    ^^^^^^^^
    Yeah, I expect to see alot more bogus BS penalties this year called on the Raiders, because they will be a better overall football team and if the Raiders have a shot at winning close games….the refs will call some BS penalties to change the momentum and help the other team out.

    Watch for it….the refs will rear their ugly heads again this year and will cost the Raiders 2-3 games IMO.

    We got a taste of it already in the Niner game…with the BS calls against Nnamdi and W. McFadden and them letting the Niners O-Line get away with holding all over the place.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    Re-Watching the game.

    That Frank Gore run went right up Des Bryant & Rolando Mcclain. Unable to get off blocks.

  • Raider Dell

    Norco

    Any predictions for this year, what do you think, wins and losses. Also, how will McClain do, and Lamarr Houston.

  • Nnamdi21

    I see Bruce Campbell coming in on goal nie plays and short yardage. He looked good pulling on one play but got caught playing too high and beat off the snap on a passing play and was on skates. Marched right back into the QB.

    A work in progress…

  • Norco Bob

    hey old kell,..watch it over and over,..as if you have anything else to do.

  • Nnamdi21

    130. Notice how the real culprit was T Scott and again later too…

  • DKnight007

    They said Guy Fieri was there taping a Tailgate show at the Coliseum!

  • Norco Bob

    Ok dell, why not…Raiders go 6-10,..Houston plays well,…McLain plays decent,…hopefully the Raiders better as year goes on, but team not there yet,…but I will be at every game and will have amazing tailgates,..while old kell listens to game on radio as no tv this year locally…lmao.

    Fieri was at a game last year.

    Yeah Scott didn’t hit the right gap, and McClain was held by Iupati big time.

    His freakin shoulder pad was all crooked and out of place afterwards!

    _____________________________________________________

    Two bogus P.I. penalties, one on Nnamdi, and one on Mcfadden gave the SF Sissies an extra TD worth of points that they didn’t earn.

    Our run defense sucked, but our pass offense was stellar!

    Take away the two gimme field goals the gimme TD at the end of the game and the punt return TD and the Niners score 7 points in that game.

    Yet some of you feel that they DOMINATED us.

    No, Patrick Willis had a REAL GOOD game. The Niners as a team flat out stunk against us.

    That’s Real Talk. Stop all the whining, gloom and doom.

    To Big Al ‘The Over Czar’:

    fix the o-line, get us a quality Center and Left Tackle, and let’s win the AFC West!

    McFadden’s 1st carry. DT shucks Veldheer and makes tackle at the line of scrimmage.

  • Norco Bob

    Hard to imagine any of you actually putting any weight to preseason,..as far as wins/losses…Raiders beat Dallas,..lol…in real game Dallas wins by 30…easily.

  • Norco Bob

    Oh man,..old kell,..really?…can you hit reverse?…maybe look at it again?…see if their was maybe a holding,…or a tripping,…then hit reverse again,..and again….lol…youre full of energy,..just get up from a nap old kell?

    Watching the Giants game. That rookie WR Victor Cruz is a straight BEAST!

    I wish we could package some players and get him. Chris Johnson, Huff, D Mcfadden, draft picks maybe.

    That kid makes plays on the ball like Fitzgerald.
