    Anyone got any early info on whether DHB and Murphy are gonna play for sure or not?

  • 90806RAIDER77

    Good morning Nation. Should be a beautiful California day for a Raider win. Hope for a good showing from our young men. Go RAIDERS

  • raidermarty

    Can we exploit their crappy pass defense?
    I think this is the key to victory- if we can get the wr’s involved early we can set a tone. The problem is DHB and Murphy are questionable. I hope they plan to use McFadden in the slot alot today…..
    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope Raiders win, but I am done with thinking that they will. It’s better to be a realist. Raiders have no receivers..How can they win with Ford and Higgins? They can’t.

    I’m sick of the same ole crap. Lose, lose, lose, that’s all they ever do.

    Even if they play well they’ll come up with some new creative way to blow it at the end. It is as it always is. Last week convinced me of that.

    Wow… you say i am not a fan. This post makes you sound feminine…

    So its “cool” for you to be a “realist” but when i say i am not upset with the loss i am not a fan???

    Also what do you know about JFORD aside his 40 time?

  • RaidingTexas

    I thought blackouts only affected the local area where the game is played. They’re not televising the game here in Texas, either. They always show Texans games here. Unreal.

    Based on what???

  • Midwest Fan

    We’re gonna need both DHB & Murphy in this game. Would like to see Ford used a little bit more on O.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Bauce,

    Post where I can find you in the parking lot. Going to check out that bar Ricky’s before heading over.

    Couldn’t sleep last night. Felt like a kid trying to sleep on Christmas Eve!

  • Just Fire Baby

    SnB,

    If I remember correctly, he always says the A lot, 6-7 cars parked together, Bob has a silver Suburban or something like that.

    R8eray might be able to help out, he met with them two weeks ago.

  • Just Fire Baby

    We need at least one of DHB and Murphy to play today.

    I think we can handle one out, with JLH filling in, but both would Ford or Nick Miller would be starting, which would be craziness.

    I don’t think Ford or Miller have got many reps as the #1 WR in practice.

  • raidermarty

    I expect to see Grads play a little better today too.He’s a tough competitor and he will find a way to improve from last week. I do agree with the decision to play him at this time though; let’s ride him a little bit and see where it goes!
    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Thanks JFB….will check out either way.

  • raiderzmaverick

    Might be better if DHB doesn’t play. He’s only catching about 33% of the passes that go his way. Over half of the “misses” from Grads goes towards DHB.

    “Heyward-Bey caught only 23 percent of intended passes last year. That’s the lowest rate of any receiver with at least 40 pass targets in the 17 years for which there is data, going back to 1993.”

  • raiderzmaverick

    Murphy caught 6 out of 7 that went his way in the last game.

  • raiderzmaverick

    I’d like to see more of Nick Miller and JLH out there. Might help Grads be more consistent

  • Thec07

    Now is the time to see if these younsters can play. not sure who is playing where however, if DHB and Murphy cant go, then our backups will have to step in abd step up, they are pros, thats what they get paid to do. JLH is the vet of the group, he will make plays.

  • Thec07

    I would like to see somm 3 or 4 wide sets. Have yet to see Hue do that…

  • raidermarty

    Kind of curious about Nick Mller myself.
    He IS active today.

  • Thec07

    We saw JFORD and NMILLER make plays in preseason, they should be able to make plays in realtime. Not sure why they havent seen the field as of yet, both are play makers.

    I am not impressed with Hue jack so far…

  • Just Fire Baby

    I am not impressed with Hue jack so far…

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

    You and me both.

    Let’s hope he doesn’t try the double-pass play again today.

    After losing 4 yards on it the first time in Tennessee, he tried it again last week and lost 7 yards, lol.

    DHB is listed as questionable, does anyone know the severity of the injury?

  • raidermarty

    Well I agree those were ill-timed plays that were poorly executed but I do like the fact that he is trying to stay aggressive and trying to change the offensive culture and push the envelope a little bit. I’ll reserve judgement on Hue for a little while longer…..

  • Just Fire Baby

    I don’t think we will know the extent of the injuries to Murphy and DHB until the active list is produced.

  • Thec07

    Let’s hope he doesn’t try the double-pass play again today.

    ++++++++
    Agreed…He should have been getting the yougsters involved in the O just in case we do get injuries, the bakups can step in… Right now hue gets a c-

  • Thec07

    Has Hue ever ran a 4 wide set?

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

    Louis Murphy (clavicle) plans to play against the Texans on Sunday.
    Despite being limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, Murphy is safe to put in lineups. He’s a high-end WR3 in this tasty matchup against the Texans’ struggling secondary.

    Good morning Nation.
    What’s up Thec, do you like this weather?
    I have to agree that I’m not sold on Hue, but he did improve our offense.
    DMC is playing better, The WRs have more catches, we are avg 5 more points than last season, but we are not doing that well.
    I give him a C+.

  • Thec07

    what up O?

    Yes i do like this weather hoe it stays like this all day….

    i am not going to put Jack on suicide watch like fassel but he needs to step up his play calling, and using more WR’s. Out youngsters may get some PT today. inexcusible wht they havent seen the field at wide…

  • SR Raider

    With Murphy and DHB banged up, and a bad texans secondary, it has to be Nick Miller time, doesn’t it? Two TD’s today

  • SR Raider

    Just gotta win the turnover battle today

  • http://atm Raider O

    Suicide Watch (LOL):
    Fassel, Sanjay Lal, AND CABLE!!

    Our Boy Ford needs to get more involved in the offense.

  • Thec07

    Our Boy Ford needs to get more involved in the offense.

    +++++++++++

    Right…Thats one of my knocks against Hue..Not playing the youngsters…

  • http://atm Raider O

    Ford > N Miller the DB Killer

    -Cut N Miller (when our WRs are healthy), H Eugene, S Williams, Rock/ Bennett, and Cooper C.

    -On thin ice: Dez Bryant, R Brown, Satele, Mario, and Walker.

  • http://atm Raider O

    Ford was a great pick IMO. He didn’t get a lot hype due to him playing with Spiller (who can rush, catch, return, and he was the entire offense).

  • Mistabr0wn

    SeaPerch,

    3 missed FG’s last week
    3 missed FG’s against Texans (2007)
    3 missed FG’s against Titans (2001)

    Commitment to Excellence!

    SeaBass got his contract, so he went back to being himself. He was playing well, practicing, and was on a diet due to his contract year.

    Keep our Drunk Kicker who was drafted in the 1st RD.
