    DMAC and DHB are SOLID !!!

    And too think DHB is just scratching the surface.

  • DKnight007

    Liked seeing McClain send a message yesterday with the body slam tackle.

    It cost 15 yards, but it was worth it IMO.

  • DMAC

    DMAC – Lawton was cut at the 53 man cut.
    =========
    I don’t think so. Couldn’t do anything until his suspension is over, I believe.

  • RaiderRockstar

    What happened to Greg Meyers?

    ***

    Who ???

    you must mean backup TE Brandon Myers, and he sucks

  • Hobs Gnarly

    bush has a lot to contribute, don’t discount him.

    and will somebody please tell me what the hell huejack is doing arm in arm with grads in the picture for monty pooles’ article?

  • 24

    MR – Grads is too much like Gannon…and Campbell is more of what AD likes maybe?

  • DKnight007

    Nice to see DHB have a good game also.

    Lets hope he continues to improve.

    I hope CrabDiva does nothing tonight versus the champs and then DHB will have some bragging rights. LOL

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    Waddup Rockstar! Come on, don’t tell me just ’cause McFadden had a couple good games, you’re ready to sh!t on Bush…the more the merrier! They can both go off!

  • No Mas Diamante

    Sorry RR you’re right. He was pretty good last year and they were talking his hands up.

  • DKnight007

    It’ll be nice to see Bush back versus Zona, cause they will need him.

    Pounding the rock with DMC and Bush all day long versus the Cards is the way to go!

    Their run defense is weak and they got gashed by Turner and freakin even Snelling yesterday!

    LA, I was only typing that comment at 11:32 to rile up that confected idiot MR.

  • CJ Legend 34

    LOL!!! Yeah, Ol Bush is watching DMac get off out there on the field and he is thinking I have to get back on the field by all means. Mark my word he will be playing next week, with anumb thumb.Oh yeah!

  • DMAC

    Who ???

    you must mean backup TE Brandon Myers, and he sucks
    ==============
    I’ll take Stewart right about now as our backup TE. At least he could catch.

  • RaiderRockstar

    hey Bleeder, I’m not a Bush hater. I just think McFadden is a better back and he’s clearly got the hot hand right now

    how many carries did Bennett & Cartwright have the first 2 games? not many – if any. MBush can have those carries I guess

  • J Hill

    Campbell making bad reads man. Underthrew DHB deep, and threw late to DHB in the the end zone that shoulda been picked.

  • 24

    SilverandBlackbleeder – Cool story.

  • No Mas Diamante

    Stewart could block as well.

  • 24

    DKnight007 – I agree with you. We’ve needed plays like the McClain body slam to set the tone for the defense. We have needed guys like Henderson who want to get slapped in the face before a game. We’ve needed guys like Houston who will scrap with anybody and guys like Wimbley who fly around the corner and smash the QB. I really like our defense and I’ll take a penalty like that to fire up the defense.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I hope CrabDiva does nothing tonight versus the champs and then DHB will have some bragging rights.

    ***

    DK, Divatree is going off tonight

    150 yards and 2 TD’s against a weak Saints secondary (minus Sharper)

  • DMAC

    I like Bush and actually thought he should be starting, but the injury gave DMAC the opportunity to carry the ball more. He has responded and I think you keep feeding him the ball. DMAC- 20 carries……Bush-10 carries

  • No Mas Diamante

    Not too many call on here for trading Dmac anymore. Guess he has a little power in those skinny toothpick legs than we thought. Loved how he protected the ball as well.

  • DMAC

    Crabby still has to face 2 good corners tonight. 4 catches 38 yds

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    24- Look it up. Classic State Title game. Bush was the man at QB when he went to Louisville Male High School…. He would have kept playing QB at Univ. of Louisville, but they were so high on Brohm that they tried Bush out at DB and RB his freshman year ’cause they wanted him on the field and not sitting, and wound up keeping him at RB after seeing the damage he can do with his legs. He’s a ridiculously gifted athlete. Him and McFadden can be something really special…..

  • J Hill

    What happened to Greg Meyers?

    ***

    Who ???

    you must mean backup TE Brandon Myers, and he sucks

    ——————————————————

    Really bad. Just think if he was decent, we wouldn’t have to go with the the 6th Oline guy. He dropped an easy pass from Gradowski yesterday that woulda been a first down.

  • DMAC

    Bring back Stewart. Cut Myers.

  • 24

    I don’t think McFadden “should” get the ball 30 times a game. Thats where Bush comes in. McFadden will wear down imo. I personally believe Bush is more complete than McFadden but I’m not hating on what McFadden is doing right now…keep doing it. Anyways…I gotta go back to work. Peace.

  • DMAC

    Keep Stevie Brown. Cut “stiff armed” Eugene.

  • No Mas Diamante

    Who cares about Craptree? He will wilt after the first big hit and short arm everything after that then go hame and polish his thousand pairs of shoes.

    You BSJ, rile up someone in this blog, now com’on, not you, you’re so likeable, I just don’t see it.

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    I wouldn’t be opposed to an even timeshare for both of ‘em……No need to wear down McFadden with 20+ carry games if we don’t have to go that route, and he can share the load. I’d like to have McFadden around for more than 3 more years. Backs who get too much work in this league never last. Especially with that build….They should be able to feed off each other

  • DMAC

    Hey Dell,
    I’m starting to take offense. I always say wassup to you and you just ignore me.
    hahahahaha

  • No Mas Diamante

    would love the the wildcat with bush and dmac. lots of ways they could be effective. they can both throw, run and catch.

  • J Hill

    Dell,

    Just watched the Rams frist TD again, and I’ll just say that we seem to get beat a lot when we play cover 2.

  • bcz24

    DK, Divatree is going off tonight

    150 yards and 2 TD’s against a weak Saints secondary (minus Sharper)
    ****
    Craptree may not turn in stats like that this whole year if he doesnt get his head of his jejunum…

  • RaiderRockstar

    Didn’t see much of McClain besides that bodyslam, which I know got the crowd & defense fired up … while the Rams marched down for a TD!

    Veldheer & McClain both still have a LONG ways to go imo

    He slammed a guy about the size of Nick Miller. It’s not like he bodyslammed Steven Jackson!

    he gave the Rams 15 yards and extra motivation. the very next play was a 20 yard pass to Amendola, clearly unfazed by the slam. the drive ended in a TD and cut our lead to just 2 points

    he needs to keep his emotions in check. We had enough stupid penalties yesterday than to have to worry about some rookies bravado

    ever watched SAVED BY THE BELL?

    this is basically like Slater punching Skreetch in the face. not a major accomplishment

  • bcz24

    I don’t think McFadden “should” get the ball 30 times a game
    ***
    That would be 480 carries… DMAC carries the ball that much this year and he will not be around next year. He might be dead!

  • DMAC

    He slammed a guy about the size of Nick Miller. It’s not like he bodyslammed Steven Jackson!
    =========
    Clearly a ROMAC hater. Comon RRS. Kirk is gone. Get over it!

    DMAC

    I gave you a shout out last week, don’t be going Cable on me.

    So let me restart this comment right,

    DMAC what’s up?

  • No Mas Diamante

    I really dont care if dhb is never as good as cancer craptree. DHB will have a better career, and a longer one, because he’s a hard worker and is willing to do whatever it takes. Love his blocking as well. Can you imagine cancer craptree doing that? me neither…

  • aig-raiders

    Correct Jhill.

    We gave up our first TD last week on a cover 2 as well. We are clueless on a cover 2.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Crabby still has to face 2 good corners tonight. 4 catches 38 yds

    Craptree may not turn in stats like that this whole year if he doesnt get his head of his jejunum…

    ***

    the Saints secondary is NOT that good fellas, especially w/o Sharper

    49ers will be playing catch-up after Brees & Co put on a passing clinic in the first half.

    Alex Smith sucks, but Divatree & Davis will get some work tonight. 42-28 Saints

  • DMAC

    Wassupers. LMAO. I’m just fkin w/ you Dell.

  • No Mas Diamante

    RR argee about Mclain. that was a bonehead play for a guy with a supposedly high football IQ.

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    I think Bush will hop the first train out of Dodge. Not activating him so that Lamont Jordan wouldn’t go to the Broncos or Patriots and then later asking him to play FB instead of SIGNING A FRIGGING FB, didn’t sit well for him…

    …When is his contract up?

    Jhill, watch the hand gestures from , Branch, he was signaling to some other DB, look again.

  • raiderfan12

    JC should start against the Cardinals

    DMAC

    Can’t be any worse than Raider O does, or Dakota, or RRS.

  • CJ Legend 34

    LMAO RR!!! You are still stcuck int he 90s as well, huh? LOL!!!! Slater is now a professional MC for life and Skreetch is now a porn producing star.
