Raiders reading material

A few items worth looking over with the Raiders home opener less than 24 hours away:

– Monte Poole on why the Oakland Heart Walk has a special significance to former Raiders safety and TV/radio analyst George Atkinson.

– Columnist Carl Steward has some thoughts on the Raiders’ blackout situation before moving on to other things.

– Raiders coach Tom Cable expects to see a heavy dose of running back Steven Jackson Sunday. An article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch carries a similar theme, with Jackson being complimentary about the Raiders run defense against Tennessee, noting that for the most part it kept Chris Johnson in check.

– Steve Corkran takes a closer look at the much-maligned run defense and if it is too early to rush to judgement.

– The Rams downgraded two players before boarding a flight for Oakland. Cornerback Kevin Dockery (hamstring) and defensive tackle Clifton Ryan (migraines) will not play.

– Former Raiders defensive end Jay Richardson has no harsh words for his former employer and is looking for a new team after reaching an injury settlement.

– St. Louis rookie left tackle Rodger Saffold held up well in Week 1 against Arizona. He’ll get a heavy dose of Trevor Scott and Matt Shaughnesy Sunday.

Raiderville makes its return in the south parking lot before Sunday’s game against the Rams.

– Two new ways to travel to the game aside from BART or your own car – the ACE train and Capitol Corridor.

– New sponsor areas on game days include the New Amsterdam Gin Bar at the East Side Club south bar and the Hennessey Black West Side Club at the West side club.

    Gentlemen, it’s coming. The greatest Raiders forum is about to launch. As I have said, I will keep you guys posted.

    You’ll be able to do things that you can’t do on here. Such as access all the posts by a certain user., with out having to dig through all kinds of threads. Each and every user will have his/her own home page so to speak.

    It’ll be up soon men. Hope to see you there.

  • aig-raiders

    New England,

    the key thing is to be able to stay on that forum and still catch all the articles and posts from this site, sacb, and sgate. make it happen.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Interesting…………

  • aig-raiders

    The philly run D is horrid. Lions cant throw and yet they got huge holes to run through.

  • Plunketthead

    I like this forum
    No basketball sized avatars
    No every other post screaming HOWIE LONG or THE SNAKE and COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lots of great info by great posters

    Heck I even like Jerry,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, a little bit.
    He feeds us and lets us get away with lots of crap

  • aig-raiders

    man, I wonder who owns atdhe.net really cool site.

  • J Hill

    I can’t believe we let sorry as Vince Young beat us last week!

  • Plunketthead

    If any team moves to Hollywood it should be the Viqueens

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Troy Palomalu with the INT……

    Just sayin

  • aig-raiders

    Are we in the age of bad Olines or Great Dline? it seems like all the supposed good teams can’t protect.

    I am sure we will have members that will post these articles. It is in the works. I believe after a poster has about 30-50 posts, which can be done in an hour, he will be able to post links and stuff like articles, pictures, that type of thing. When I get 100% confirmation, I will direct you to a site that this Raiders site will be modeled after.

  • aig-raiders

    Dex Bryant just took one to the house. Wow.

  • Plunketthead

    Dixon sure gets back quick compared to JC. That alone is making a big diff. I have not watched much of the game but it looks like the Titans are getting a big jump

  • raiders22

    well gentleman, id like to say, im al davis.
    i come on here to spread the greatness of the raiders, the team of the decades.

    i know you are all mad about the super bowl loss last year, but tampa bay will pay. an insider of mine has told me about a great young quarterback making his way into college right now, jamarcus russell. the kid reminds me of john elway, just wait and see.

    in addition my raiders are in luck, i plan on firing norvelle after the year, word is the chargers want him…goons. the great art shell will take us to the promise land.

    Lastly…(herrera walks in and changes my diape, all while reading my post and seeing that i think its 2003 still)

    GM, Majority Owner, Grim Reaper,

    -Al Davis

  • JB

    Is today’s game going to be televised on a tape delay basis in the Bay Area? Time & channel?

  • aig-raiders

    JB, I have never heard of a reg season game being tape delayed. try atdhe.net.

  • J Hill

    The more I watch other QBs on Sunday Ticket, the more I realize how far we have to go at the position.

    Where’s Gradowski?!?!?!

  • raiders22

    watching the tennesse game makes me feel better, the titans d looks just about as good today as they did last week.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Saw Aaron Rodgers scramble on 3rd and 10, and right before he slides, he glances at the sideline just to make sure he doesn’t slide to early.

    Presence!!!

  • aig-raiders

    titans are a good team. They have the best RB in the game and one of the hardest QB to tackle. They went 8-2 last to finish last year and led the AFC in wins in 2008. People dont give them enough respect.

    ========================================
    Ask Al Davis. He makes ALL the roster decisions!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Where’s Gradowski?!?!?!

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

    He will be that guy warming up at halftime.

  • raiders22

    I TRADED FOR JASON CAMPBELL FOR A REASON. bruce gradkowski will not be in the game unless my all-pro lt lets howie long through and breaks campbell in half.

    the raiders are great, jason campbell is great player, get over it.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Tom Cable is not mentally fit to be a Head Coach, nor to operate heavy machinery. Tomy Cable is a special kid who is mentally handicapped.

  • raiders22

    Tom Cable = John Madden

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Tom Cable = John Madden – brain

  • raiders22

    Close your eyes and listen to both men speak.
    tell me who sounds like they have a brain

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    Please judge coaches by wins and losses…but hey close you eyes

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    vince young is learning it aint the same thing playing the raiders and other NFL teams. VY suxs

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    gotta give cable props for the pimp hand, not every nfl head coach puts that on his CV

  • aig-raiders

    I dont care about the penalty but CJ is so much fun to watch.

  • lefty12

    VY is learning you don’t get the calls in Pitt. like you do at home and like you do when you play the Raiders.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I really thought I was going to re-invent the wheel and land some solid fantasy sleepers with Matt Stafford and the Panthers defense.

    LMAO with those two!!!

  • Just Fire Baby

    This Matt Moore sucks for the Panthers.

    Expect John Fox and Moore to be canned at the end of the year, and a new coach to be in charge of grooming Claussen.

  • RaiderRetribution

    Cleveland w/ a backup QB, S. Wallace leading the Chiefs, Raiders could be tied for 1st place after they defeat the Rams.

    Thats all nice and dandy, but if I ever should leave here, it would because you have implemented the post I have posted here for nearly 4 years on record, otherwise, no thanks…

    each year there are 2-3 guys who try to get us to ‘their’ forum, that said, I applaud your effort..

  • Head Coach Al Davis
