Kelly shrugs off defensive ranking

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, September 29th, 2010 at 1:06 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly seemed amused when asked about the Raiders’ status as the No. 2 (tied) ranked defense in the NFL.

The same stat caught the attention of Houston coach Gary Kubiak, who made mention of it more than once while talking with Bay Area reporters.

Through three games, Oakland is giving up 260.7 yards per game _ tied with Green Bay for second place behind Baltimore (244.3).

“We’ve got to play more attention to detail, a little more focus on every snap,” Kelly said. “We’re really good, stop, stop, stop _ then they pop one. That’s frustrating.”

Yet through three games, anyway, yardage is undeniably down.

“It’s down, but what’s the end result?,” Kelly said. “You’re still walking off that field with your head between your legs, so hurt because you lost. I mean, we’re getting better, y’all can see that. But we’ve got a long way to go before we’re a No. 1 defense.”

If the Raiders can actually maintain their defensive ranking after facing Houston, Kelly will be more impressed. The Texans are fourth in the NFL in total offense (407.0 yards per game) _ one of only teams averaging the same figure the Raiders have attained exactly once in the last 77 games.

The Texans have one of the NFL’s top passers in Matt Schaub, and a sudden star in running back Arian Foster, who emerged from practice squad obscurity and leads the league with 406 yards rushing.
“I think, if we slow these boys down it’ll be a little more indication of how we is as a defense,” Kelly said. “This is a big opportunity. You say you’re the No. 2, No. 3 defense in the league, let’s see it on Sunday.

Mario knows Mario

Mario Henderson is struggling to hold on to his starting job at left tackle, splitting time with rookie Jared Veldheer.

Not exactly the best time to face with Mario Williams, the No. 1 pick of the 2006 draft and one of the premiere players at his position against both the run and pass.

Or maybe it’s the perfect time.

Henderson got his first NFL start in Week 16 against Williams, replacing Kwame Harris at left tackle. He effectively controlled Williams throughout the game, and it remains one of Henderson’s best games as a starting lineman.

“Normally guys his size don’t have that much speed and quickness, and that’s the thing that makes him different from almost every guy in the league is the fact that most guys that are tall like him are kind of slow, but he’s extremely quick and has very long arms,” Henderson said. “He knows how to use all three, size speed and quickness.”

Having some success in the bank can’t hurt.

“I just go back and watch film and kind of know how to play him a little bit,” Henderson said. That’s a good thing. I can use that.”

Seabass: Bad hold

Sebastian Janikowski headed directly to his locker and waited for a group of reporters to finish talking to Zach Miller, figuring he’d be better off answering quesitons about one of the low points of his professional career than avoiding it.

As they started to arrive, Janikowski said, looked at Shane Lechler and said, “Bad hold!,” an indication he hasn’t lost his sense of humor.

Lechler’s hold on the 32-yard field goal attempt, as well as on Janikowski’s other three misses, was perfect.

“I was disappointed, I mean shocked, you know? It happens,” Janikowski said. “I can’t change anything but, going into warm-ups, like I was talking to Shane, I was 20-for-20, with 63-yarders both way. And, you go in the game you feel so good about it, ah, I can make any kick. And this thing happens. So, you’ve just gotta move on. Next page.”

Said Janikowski of the support he received from coach Tom Cable as well as his teammates: “It’s nice to know I’ve got guys behind me. I’ve got to apologize to everybody _ Al Davis, the players, the fans. So, you know, come home this weekend, and kick a winner.”

Recalling a game in 2001 when he missed three three field goal attempts and the Raiders lost 13-10, Janikowski mused, “Every 10 years, something happens.”

Pre-practice notes

As warmups and drills concluded, there was no sign of right guard Robert Gallery (hamstring), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) and wide receiver Chaz Schilens knee.

Those on the field but not practicing included wide receiver Louis Murphy and wide receiver and safety Hiram Eugene (hamstring). Murphy left the Arizona game briefly after catching a 70-yard pass, later returned, and there was no mention of injury at the time.

Defensive tackle John Henderson was suited up and on the field, although he was spending some time with a trainer who was working on his injured foot. Chris Johnson, inactive against Arizona with an ankle injury, was suited up and going through drills.

There appears to be a new addition to the practice squad, a linebacker wearing No. 51. The Raiders have not yet released a name to go with the number. Not present wsa Quentin Scott, No. 56, signed to the practice squad last week.

    His father says he’ll play next game. the kid is chomping at the bit. His father and I talked a lot about Davis and the Raiders.

    He also said that Tampa was courting Shields as if he was Beyonce’. they were sure he would be there when they picked in the 5th. He meantioned 2 other teams as well but I can’t recall because we talked so long.

    We kind of hit it off real cool, going to go to games together. So we’ll see.

    Ray Charles can see Russell has unlimited talent. It’s just his application and maturity that they question. If you can’t see the obvious talent it wont do you any good for me to tell you.
    Russell highly touted, Grads wasn’t even touted he was a small school hope he can. He’s a backup QB in anyones book. Except the geniuses in here.

    Never Worship A Mortal God.

    Raiders fans are famously attached to their team. They’re also notoriously detached from reality. After another subpar season in Oakland, the local faithful are still praying for deliverance—which would be better news if Al Davis were a deity worth appealing to.

    Devotion means holding to a steady course.

    Delusion, on the other hand, means clinging to a sinking ship.

  • http://www.nataliegulbis.com Richochet

    Want to know why you allow me to slap you around at will, TJ?

    Because you have no choice. You screamed NO MAS a year ago.
    Wise of you, BTW.

    Here..tell us again how Grad was GOING TO FORCE THE RAIDERS INTO INSERTING THE BIGGEST BUST OF ALL TIME..

    Grads will make them play Russell again before the year is out. He just can’t get it done at a hig enough level. He has no potential for greatness. Russell has a ton of potential he just needs to realize that.

  • priesttj

    You wouldn’t know what I was right or wrong about Dakota, you’re still struggling with who you are.

  • ArmChair GM

    No Priest, you guys sound like hypocrites.

    You guys jump to such extremes to prove your point that you miss the point being made. I’m not saying to CUT Drew Brees!

    The point I’m making is that no no one BLAMED Brees for losing that game, even though over all he did not have a good performance. Because he put them in a position to win at the end when it counted.

    So if Brees isn’t being blamed for their loss, then you can’t blame Grads for our loss because he put us in a position to win when it counted.

    Now is that something you guys can comprehend, or do I need to spell it out for you some more?

  • http://www.nataliegulbis.com Richochet

    What’s the matter, TJ? lol…nothing to say to back up YOUR WORDS??

    Of course not..you’ve perfected the slinker off routine.

    Now..like it or not, ladies, Grad is the qb of the raiders.

    Like it or not, he’s had what amounts to one year of starting.

    Seems most here screamed out how qb’s need 3 years, some say 2, but the Russell lovers say, NOW, that he doesn’t even deserve ONE year…

    From John Herrera, a personal spokesperson for Mr. Davis. Believe me if he says it, it’s probably as close to the truth as yu’ll get. He represents the org. So Lofton is indeed being interviewed by Kiffin I think that puts to rest any speculation of Kiffin leaving. His interviewing Lofton is to assess Lofton offensive phylosophy and to make sure that it’s a fit.
    So there you have it no more need for speculation or rumors it’s a done deal. Herrers reported that there was never any issue as to Kiffin being in fired and this as much proof as anyone with a brain should require but you just watch, that would put a damper on the medias spin that Kiffin was in truble and things got patched up. Here we go.

    Stop straining your self Dakota anyone in here can see your reaching. If you can find every negative without admitting the positives it just proves my point.

    You can’t deal with the Priest straight up!

    For instance; I was the only one in here who told the vast majority that VELDHEER was not ready. Everyone screamed that he was well where is everyone now? Who told you the Hiram Eugene was a keeper. wWH told you about Des Bryant, Matt S, DHB, Mario Henderson and I was the only one who gave support to Satele when all of you threw him under the bus.

    Cable mismanaged that game at the end. He had Jano kick it on 3rd down with 4 seconds in the game.
    He could have taken one more shot at the endzone if that was the case.

    Veldheer is not ready as a LT or C, instead of RT.
    But that’s on Cable.
    Campbell is not ready as a RG, instead of LT.
    That’s on Cable.

    I’d like to see the Raiders starting…
    Bruce/Barnes–Gallery/Loper–Satele(for now)–Walker/Carlisle–Veldheer/Henderson.

    And just sticking with it.

  • raiderlaker1980

    It was obvious Veldheer wasn’t ready in preaseason vs Chi, good call, people who said otherwise are blinded by frustrations with the poor play on the line. Bruce Campbell also isn’t ready, but one has to wonder how much worse he could be than Super Mario or Langston, but this line hasn’t been terriblesince the opener,although there is laarrrrge room for improvement in pass protection, and if Dmac can continue to pick up the blitz like he’s done so far, that will help

    Btw, Saints signed Carney (Kicker). Relegating Hartley to kick-off duties. On notice, putting onus on player to improve, accountability.

    I wouldn’t think us doing the same would be bad. Send that message out that accountability at all positions.

    Janikowski relegated to kick-off duties and kicks outside 50. Swayze Waters signed for 18-49 yarders. Puts the onus on Janikowski to improve. You’re not on this team “no matter what” and can slack off. Every Monday you have to be out there kicking etc, you’re fighting for a roster spot with another kicker.

    You stupidly sat here night after night, you and TJ patting each other on the head, so happy to have someone to share in the misery, predicting glory for Russell (you remember, right, Oakglenn? “JR is a BONIFIED NFL QB’??

    Amazing you admit to it…actually…no, it’s not.

    You ask some dumb questions Raiderman99 have you ever heard anyone say Russell is not talented?
    Ray Charles can see Russell has unlimited talent. It’s just his application and maturity that they question. If you can’t see the obvious talent it wont do you any good for me to tell you.
    Russell highly touted, Grads wasn’t even touted he was a small school hope he can. He’s a backup QB in anyones book. Except the geniuses in here.

    Grads will make them play Russell again before the year is out. He just can’t get it done at a hig enough level. He has no potential for greatness. Russell has a ton of potential he just needs to realize that.

    STFU RichoDork! I’d stand behind both these statements.

    ………….

    I agree.

    Let’s have everyone who supported Veldheer at C come in here and admit it. Let’s see how fast that happens.

    Let’s have everyone who threw Satele under the bus admit it.

    I said Eugene could play at this level when he was an unknown UDFA and he’s STILL HERE…..so who was right? I said the same thing about Des Bryant was I right? HELL YEAH!!!

    4 seconds?? RUN A PLAY IN 4 SECONDS? and then have time to kick a FG? lol….geez…

    I agree with running one more play, there was actually 35 seconds on the clock, 3rd down, I kept yelling give Dmac 1 more carry to get it closer… they ran the clock down to 4 secs, called a timeout, and the rest is ugly history.

    Except that’s not what ArmchairNit said, and the following comment reinforces his ‘cotton ball” status:

    Cable mismanaged that game at the end. He had Jano kick it on 3rd down with 4 seconds in the game.
    He could have taken one more shot at the endzone if that was the case.

    No it doesn’t mean you were right, it means he’s still on the team, warranted or not. I read this blog quite a bit, but don’t post much.. for someone who claims to watch so much film and be such an astute talent evaluator, that is one of the most asinine statements ever to say that guy is a keeper. Stevie Brown in 2 preseason games and 2 special teams tackles has had far more positive impact on this team already than Hiram in hs whole Raider career. Get over yourself man that’s dumber than a brainless horse to suggest he’s a keeper.

    Dick-o-schyt you tranny,

    I’ll say it again…

    Janoslobski should be cut! At the very least they should bring someone into camp to compete with him.

    He was a number 1 pick, he is a veteran, he is the highest paid kicker in the history of the NFL.

    He came into the league with problems, 10 years later he still has problems, he has missed 5 kicks in 3 games. He never feels like his job is threatened, he never has any legitimate competition in camp, he rarely practices in camp, and so his focus is not what it should be.

    That’s not what I want from my franchise kicker.

    It starts with accountability.

    Now lets talk about your used to be favorite team…

    The Phony Niners. And let’s talk about that sissy Craptree’s performance THIS SEASON you mental midget.

    Craptree-6 Receptions 81 yards

    DHB-10 Receptions 140 yards

    I think DHB is outplaying “The Steal Of The Draft” Crabtree so far this season.

    At least if you’re capable of counting, which I doubt seriously. Piece of schyt.
