    In the middle (G or C) his short arms won’t matter as much.

    Sometimes I think you guys are just in love with the name. Screw how the player actually performs.

    That’s Gallery redux at LT

  • RaiderRetribution

    Loved Deion’s question to Marriuci, though (paraphrasing) Steve what did Williams do for you, that was funny as hell.

  • priesttj

    Edward Teach we addressed the Oline this year they’re just rookies is all. Yes we still need to draft there but to say we haven’t addressed it is not true. It seems to me that if the player doesn’t come in the 1st rnd then it’s not addresing it. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Great players are gotten all through the draft. BC and JV will be very good players they’re just rokies now.

    rivers in full on melt down loving it…

  • RaiderRetribution

    Should Vehldeer and B. Campbell be the core and future of our O-Line, then play them together.

  • TerrapinRaider

    Its too early to call, but at center Veldheer can dominate. And we have to go up against all those NTs. He needs to be there. At LT Peppers showed you enough.

    I THOUGHT TENN WAS OFF SIDES ON MANY PLAYS, I KEPT REWINDING THE PLAYS AND THOSE FOOLS JUST KNEW THE SNAP COUNT. PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

    What really annoyed me about the Cable interview is that twice he was asked about the snap count / snap, and all he could say is that it was loud. I’m sure it was, but c’mon.

    I was such a huge supporter of Cable at the beginning of his first full season. Now I’ll eat my crow (with a side of jalepeno peppers).

    Anyone notice how energetic and amped Fisher looked and how laddenly heavy Cable looked? Man I wish I knew if Al really calls all the shots or just most of them.

    Still, look at the next eight games (1 at a time of course) and there are some wins. Maybe quite a few.

  • aig-raiders

    Big Pep,

    40 yd track speed doesnt tell me crack. To me the key is the change of direction speed. I think it’s the agility timing. Look at mcCluster. He made the guy lose his momentum and he was gone. Once you make the defender loses momentum, it’s over.

    But I was very surprised McCluster had a slow 40 time for his size.

    I am disgusted, really, after 34 years, these punks think their entitled, play the game, play hurt, win games, what part of this don’t you get?

    ****************

    Now thats crazy talk …only if they are ready, anything otherwise would be asinine by Cable.

  • aig-raiders

    it was obvious the timing on the snap and team was way off. Stupid move by cable to start a rookie on the road at center. Stupid move by cable not allowing the rookie to play the whole 4th preseason game. It wasnt like our team was Peyton’s unit. We needed all the reps we could.

  • big pep

    blandafan: i live in tenn, i go to there games thanks to my generous company who offer free tickets, that stadium is loud even during the preseason those fools act like there in a super bowl every game. that being said cable is just plain dumb, looked like a lost puppy out there.

  • olinesux

    Veldeheer and b Campbell should start…

  • Thec07

    hahahaha rivers losing it….

  • olinesux

    Lol rivers is getting pissed..I wish Campbell would…

  • Thec07

    hope the disc play like this every week….

  • big pep

    aig, i jst didnt know nothing about the dude, all i said was he looked faster than i thought.

  • RaiderRich510

    So let this kid Ford return kicks Cable!!How worse can u look If it doesnt work out? Yamon Figurs? seriously?? Nailin your own coffin there buddy!!

  • priesttj

    R8eray

    Brotha it’s called coach speak he ha sto say something that makes sense to them even if it’s a lie. It’s a mandatory PC. Basically we got whipped nothing more nothing less.

  • big pep

    yamon looked like chit during preseason and looks worst now, but cable said he was explosive.

  • Thec07

    Quick start and stop getting to top speed in an instant..

  • http://www.aflciodental.com/unions/IBEW.png r8eray

    RR, B. Campbell at LT, Satele at Center, Veldheer at RT, Gallery LG, and……don’t know what to do with the rest!
    Pears? Mario? Barnes? Carlisle? Henderson? Loper?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Terrapin, I know, I’m just so damn frustrated.

  • http://www.car.org KoolKell

    You Davis cronies are always looking for someone to blame:

    J Russell
    Lane Kiffin
    Tom Cable
    Warren Sapp
    Adam Shefer
    MaddenRaider
    KoolKell
    DMac

    ANY-Body, But…..

  • aig-raiders

    Big Pep, I hear you man. I wasnt picking on you. Just ahving a conversation. I wished we got him. Yamon is a joke. He should be out doing raggae or something.

    Nick Miller over Yamon
    Bruce over JC

    That should take care of alot there.

  • RaiderRetribution

    I see Loper starting, I really do.

    he played hard inpreseason, what I noticed and he played well v. Tenn.

  • olinesux

    Forget Henderson I’m sick of that fool watching players go by him

  • big pep

    g.n. gents and ladies if there are any here. im out.

  • daraider09

    Chiefs are dynamic with their rookies and Jamaal Charles. He might be 2nd to chris johnson here pretty soon. We have no talent like this. However I wish we would let jacoby ford return punts and kicks. Maybe he’s got some electricity like we just saw from mccluster.

    I drafted him on my fantasy team knowing this might happen. Cheifs upgraded a lot in talent this offseason. Not great but probably enough to embarrass our team.

  • Thec07

    Jamaal Charles. He might be 2nd to chris johnson here pretty soon.

    ++++++++++=

    Yup, was nice at texas…3rd year

  • TerrapinRaider

    What if our line was not as bad as they looked? What if the snap was just that off? Tennessee sure looked to be fast over our tackles in a hurry. One can only hope.

    I still flabbergasted at Bruce Campbell playing exclusively RG. The guys the most nimble and strongest linemen you have. Train him to be a tackle ‘guru’.

  • http://www.aflciodental.com/unions/IBEW.png r8eray

    You Vets in here..remember that one post that read:

    Let’s just “BLOW UP” the Raiders and start over!

    Who said that..I can’t remember?

  • Dude

    Terrapin,

    Where was Bruce Campbell during yesterdays game??

  • aig-raiders

    Terr,

    I think the snap was def way off and it has to do with a rookie center not gettin enough reps and the rest of the first string playing at Tenn.

  • olinesux

    No the oline is really that bad not bad but horrible!!!

  • http://www.aflciodental.com/unions/IBEW.png r8eray

    I’m sure Bruce couldn’t be any worse than Super Mario Weenie?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Bruce was inactive

  • mikedlopes

    I’d like to see more of Jacoby Ford / Nick Miller on returns as well, I think JLH had his moment, and Yamon is hype.

    Time to give our young talent some chances.. I mean, we take chances on the O-Line, why nawt go for it on special teams :)

  • http://www.aflciodental.com/unions/IBEW.png r8eray

    You know whats funny..is that the Chargers look like the pathetic Raiders!

  • Dude

    Yep. The guy didnt even dress for christ sake. STFU about him. Hes not ready.

  • priesttj

    As good as Phillip Rivers is look at what he looks like when things around him are crumbling he looks very ordinary. Well now you see what Canmpbell was going through yesterday.

    Amen, brother. This is what Al Davis doesn’t get. There is a difference between speed and quickness. DHB has speed, Crabtree has quickness. Give me quickness anyday.

  • aig-raiders

    Priest,

    Was JC ordinary yesterday? JC was playing at Aarron Brooks (Raider time) and Jawalrus level. Please dont confuse JC with Rivers. The fcker couldnt win with a 7th Ranked D in Wash, how the heck is he supposed to win with our D?

  • olinesux

    his oline as bad as it is is better than the raider line

  • http://www.aflciodental.com/unions/IBEW.png r8eray

    When I go to Oakland this weekend..I’m taking a BIG BROWN BAG and puttin it over my head!
    I’m gonna do the same thing Saints fans were doing back in the day!
    I’ll even wear a #2 jersey just to rub it in!
    Eff it..I’ll wear a Rams jersey!

    New BLOG name is RamRay!

  • beach

    You guys have made some good points. JC doesn’t look like Aaron Brooks or that “nothing” we had the past 2 seasons. Give him a chance! What is sickening is to hear about snap count issues and see 3 plays where the center and QB can’t get the snap off! That is preseason garbage at its best. Cable, light a fire under these guys and prepare for this coming Sunday as if you were facing the Titans again!

    Logic 101

    Cable referred to guys coming in to rattle our QBs as goons.

    Cable came in to this organization and rattled our QBs.

    Cable is a Goon.

    F-ing hysterical. Right on the money. I nearly choked on spit when Cable used the word “goon.” There’s just something about a ham sandwich of a coach like him using that word. It should be off limits to him. I wonder what Cable calls wife beaters and guys who knock people from chairs.

  • aig-raiders

    so KC has a weapon in Dexter but they aint giving him the ball. How about a screen to him?
