    Its hard to expect anything from AD…It make’s since in a wierd way… Nmandi and Revis are closer than some expect and have spent some time together in the off season (Kinda Dating)…. They have a solid Bromancee

    I actually Disagree TeaBag ..Yea we have a rook playin Center but our biggest week spot is Carlisle
    *********************************************

    Did you see Mario Henderson almost get Campbell obliterated in the Niner game?

    Gallery hasn’t looked too well…

    A rook @ C …. a 6’8 one at that playing C…. who missed two KEY assignments on running plays in the SF game and had McFadden wrapped up almost before he could take the handoff…

    Carlisle…… nuff said…

    RT pick your poison… Walker or Barnes… both penalty machines..

    yea, at best, this O Line sucks.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    R4L, ok, yep we got that one, but what do you think of Cambell going to RT?

  • PurpleDrank81

    Who honestly thought that R.Seymour was gonna be here last year … It’s and Uncapped year and Davis is crazy enough to do it

  • priesttj

    Ok maybe he’s not what I saw at Missouri anymore I haven’t seen him at this level. So I’ll take your word for it. He seemed like a good prospect.

    Dre Bly among Lions cuts
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 4, 2010 8:25 PM ET
    Cornerback Dre Bly is not gonna be Dre for the Detroit Lions again.

    Bly was among the final roster cuts Detroit announced Saturday night,

  • priesttj

    But don’t react to fast to these cuts a lot of these kids will end up on PS. You only have 53 spots and most teams would like to keep 60+ players.

  • RaiderRetribution

    #150- Alice Shatner, lmao, he does over accentuate much like his daddy

  • Raiders 4 Life

    304 – By his own admission, I think it is too early for Campbell at RT. I would love to see Carlisle replaced and I think Walker makes for a good RG, but is he ready? If the coaches feel it is a wash, then buy all means, lets go with youth!

  • raiders22

    Ravens cut troy smith. would much rather have hue jackson coach him up then keep kyle boller. we already know what boller can do, and its not very impressive.

  • fat kidd

    Revis finally ready to quit Jets!!revis grandfather says teams treatment like a slap in the face.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    R4L, good answer! You are a Raider Fan, welcome aboard! Everyone, New Fan, Raiders for Life is with Us, wecome him, But yes, R4L, he needs to be developed, but my guess, at, at least 2 positions. I think he can do it!

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Raiders 22, you on Purpledrank?

  • Raiders 4 Life

    I love wearing my Raider garb in “Choppers”, a great Colorado sports bar. Most of the Doncs fan respect my passion even though they ride my arse. Fortunately, we have split the previous two seasons but this is going to be a fun year……

  • Raiders 4 Life

    QB is not very high on our list of needed upgrades. If Hue brings on Troy, then we will know he is better than Boller but don’t hold your breathe.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    R4L, this year you will be able to SWAGGER, been doing it all my life, get used to it!

  • ArmChair GM

    Lester Hayes and Mike Haynes…

    reincarnated as Nnamdi Asomugha and Darelle Revis. Al has wanted to recreate that tandem since that duo ended. That is why he got Deangelo Hall, but unfortunately Hall was overrated, and not a bump and run, press, man to man, cornerback.

    But Revis is. And Big Al has no problem paying him the big bucks that he wants. Can you imagine how much that would piss off NY and the rest of the NFL? Al would do it for that reason alone.

    If the Jets can’t work out a deal for Revis, and he ends up leaving NY, I see it happening. He will come to Oakland.

    Print that.

    ……………………………………………….

    agreed, but the name of the game is upgrade your roster, and most would agree thats an upgrade. we did use all 3 qb’s last year as it is.

    im just hoping for hartwig or housh.

  • Raiders 4 Life

    Sam Williams still on official team roster.

    Todd,

    Have all kinds of prop bets on the Raiders this year. Wins, sacks, AFC West, Defensive Rookie of the Year so I hope so…..

  • PurpleDrank81

    Housh is dead in the water

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Yea…. Revis a zone CB…. coming to the great CB friendly MAN 1 scheme in Oakland…. Al is going to pay Revis 15 mil per to have that DREAM TANDEM AGAIN!!!! ….

    Right, because the zone to man transition worked sooooooooooooo well for D.Hall……..

    Some of you guys are seriously delusional.

    Arm, I read the NY Post every day, He is a nut case lookin for a payday! He’s nuttier than a Raider, pass!

  • Guy

    Juaquin Iglesias and Jarron Gilbert maybe? Get rid of Figurs and ?? and do you guys think Hartwig would be better than Veldheer as the season progresses?

  • Raiders 4 Life

    Hartwig and Housh would both be upgrades. I am holding out for Logan Mankins. Might as well reach high. I still think we may trade a safety as well. I think that Branch, with his speed as the last line of defense with MM34 in the box is not a bad combo!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Jarron Gilbert was cut? Interesting.

    I guess jumping out of a pool on youtube didn’t translate to the NFL. Who knew!!!

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Guy, Figurs was kept for a reason, don’t you get it?

  • Guy

    I think he was supposed to be one of the sleepers and is a DE/DT like Houston. Any noticeable DTs or safeties cut?

    rankin was cut too.

    McDaniels is the new Lance Kiffin…

    —-
    NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports the Lions have acquired CB Alphonso Smith from the Broncos in exchange for TE Dan Gronkowski.
    Coach Josh McDaniels deserves another year or two to implement his program in Denver, but the early returns on his draft results aren’t pretty. The Broncos traded a first-round pick to grab Smith in the second round last year, and they’ve now ditched him for a tight end who couldn’t make the Lions roster last season. It’s a smart move by Detroit, adding an early-round talent to a thin secondary while gambling that they can develop Smith where Denver failed.

    Too all. The Raiders are going young, drafting, possessing, Raider footballing. Get over it, thats where we are going. Get Excited!

    RRRRRAAAAAIIIIIDDDDDEEEEERRRRRSSSSS!!!!!

  • RaiderRetribution

    #295- you’re correct Sam Williams’ name is not listed on the depth chart there are 53 names (I went thru even duplicates),

    note Luke Lawton got cut, so carrying 54 is ireelevant.

    We have to be to 53, I still think there is a trade in the works.

    And I do like the idea of using M. Bush as fullback until his thumb is 99%, it will kepp him in football game shape.

  • http://www.wix.com/GGEden/ggeden GG

    Revis is too good a player to be sitting out a year of football. Al Davis is a shark, he’s done this sort of thing many times in the past and we all know Al is a creature of habit.

    ——————————
    If AL can pull Revis out of His arse THAT would be amazing.

    It would be cool to hear the old man at a presser just prior to the Season.

  • Twocents

    I’m afraid that ArmChair GM is right.

    I’m not a big fan of Routt, but why bring in a disrupting factor at this point.

    Al just has to do it his way.

  • Guy

    I said this before and the what if game is crazy but wow what if Al Davis had taken Revis over Russel? We would have got so much crap for that and I probably would have been pretty mad too at the time. Wish Al woulda went DB crazy in that draft haha

  • http://www.wix.com/GGEden/ggeden GG

    RaiderLen…

    Yep, a good promotional tool for da raiduhs, a coup signing to have an annual State of the Raiders press conference. Al is always looking to make a mark in the NFL, be talked about for something newsworthy like a Revis signing would. While it’s unlikely, it certainly is possible and in Al’s nature.

  • PlunkforHOF

    RRAAAAIIIIIDDDDEEEERRRRSSSS!!!!!!!!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Would they just announce the other cut already?

    Cable said they would do it by 3pm “per league rules”.

    A real stickler to these rules the Raiders are!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3ng4yHw2xk&feature=PlayList&p=E565EF0DE2F587FA&playnext= Raider75

    Bobby Engram goes from 1100 & 6 TDs in 2007 to being cut by the Browns this year.

    Sad.

  • Roch R

    I would’ve kept Chris Cooper over John Henderson, I saw nothing from Henderson in the pre-season games, I hope he’s been good at camp, because IMO his pro bowl days are long behind him.

    Still a good squad, nice to see T.Howard stuck around, I’m still hoping for more INT’s from him.

    I’m not sure if the Yamon Figurs spot couldn’t have gone to another position.

    All and all, looking pretty good, speedy recovery to MBush.

  • Roch R

    Go Raiders.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Road Scholar, Myron Rolle got cut, he should be on the Raiders’ radar. He was one I was hoping the raiders would draft.

    I am exstatic about the 2010 draft class. Rolle should be picked up and placed on our practice squad.

  • http://Raiders4Ever.com 860Todd Christensen

    Two cents, Routt is ok with me, he is learning, but he’s learning, he has Raider meaness, that is a good thing!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Got my tickets, hotel for the AZ game.

    Next on the list….jersey.

    Thinking of a white #55, although I still want the custom #5 with Bruce on the back.

    Decisions, decisions…

  • RaiderRetribution

    Browns have not released any of their cuts yet, so the Raiders holding onto one, not that big.
