    and I will be waiting on Andre Johnson’s production vs Louis Murphy through 3 games as well….very patiently.

    Texans Defense:

    Colts – 463 yrds
    Redskins – 421 yrds
    Cowboys – 385 yrds
    Raiders – 363 yrds

    Those aren’t exactly stellar numbers. That is why the Raiders could move the ball.

    Why are we discussing which quarterback should start. Right now Gradkowski is doing a better job than Jason Campbell.

    …………

    Agreed. There is no discussion. Everyone knows Gradkowski is our guy, and will be for a long time. But it’s just that idiots like Mistic, while pretending to have gotten over this fact, continue to leave parting shots directed at Grads and Raider fans. Somebody has to call him on it. And it’s easy to do, because his argument is weak. Weak and just retarded. Keeps talking about 6 turnovers, as if Campbell wouldn’t have twice that in the same amount of time.

  • J Hill

    I’m still waiting on your resposne on why Grad is putting up numbers on the same level as Gannon’s best year.

    You can’t be serious!

    Dakota,

    Why dont you look up Andre Johnson’s production through 3 games this year and compare it to Louis Murphy’s 3 game? I dare you. So please stop with this best offensive weapon missing.

    For your information, Schaub is my starting QB in the fantasy league and has been benched. Other than the Wash game, his production sucked that also means Johnson’s production is not stellar either.
    +++++++++++++

    Jezuz dude, listen to yourself…who in there right mind would even consider comparing Johnson to Murphy? Johnson is considered to be the best WR in the NFL by almost everyone…he is clearly their best offensive player. If another NFL GM could choose one player from the Texan’s offensive roster, they would ALL choose Johnson.

    Get a grip.

    No one wants to hold him (Gradkowski) accountable for 6 turnovers!

    …………..

    That’s because most of us are aware of the fact that on this team, 6 turnovers is an improvement! Again, if Campbell’s outings in Tennessee and vs. St. Louis have demonstrated anything, it’s that if he were still starting, you’d have double those amount of turnovers.
    ========================================================

    Your take is pure speculation, mine is based on what actually has happened…fact!

    You keep trying to make this about jc, im talking about your boy Scabkowski!!! If six turnover in 2 1/2 game is good qb play to you, we really cant have a logical discussion based in reality.

    Skabs has stunk it up…period.

    Top five reasons Grads is putting up decent numbers:

    1)Hue Jackson
    2)Bad defenses
    3)Darren McFadden
    4)luck (defenders keep dropping his ints)
    5)the emergence of Heyward-Bey

  • J Hill

    Interesting Dline at the 5 min mark of the 4th qtr ….

    Seymour and Bryant at DT

    Kelly and Shonasty at DE

  • J Hill

    Mike Mitchell is playing really well!

  • J Hill

    No chat updates RRS?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jhill: I haven’t read any of Jerry Mac’s chat session yet

    I didn’t have time to ask him any questions…

    is it worth reading?

  • RaiderRockstar

    this website for one of our vendors SUCKS!

  • J Hill

    i don’t uually read them. I wait for your recap, lol!

  • RaiderRockstar

    still loading ….

    Arrrrggghhh!

  • J Hill

    I will say that Gardowski would be a lot better if he didn’t have to rely so heavily on DHB and Murphy.

    Chaz and JLH instead of those 2 would make a BIG difference.

    Same with TO or Housyourmama.

    Free Plaxico!

  • RaiderRockstar

    screw it. aint got the patience to wait for that

    time to read Jerry’s chat :)

    AIG,

    Garbage has only played two full games…the second and third games of the season correct?

    Okay, let us compare Garbagekowski’s two games to the same two games for Gannon in 2002.

    Garbage: 41 for 73, 533 yards, 56% Comp %, 3tds 3ints

    Gannon: 52 for 77, 738 yards, 67.5% Comp%, 7 tds 0 Ints

    oh and Gannon was 2-0…Garbage is 0-2

    If you really think that Garbagekowski could have done as well or better than Gannon back in 2002, I truly think you need to see a doctor.

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

    Excuse me…meant the third and fourth games of the season in #767.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Jhill, chat highlights:

    How would you rate Rolando’s first 4 games compared to other MLBs you have seen?

    jerrymac: Without getting into other MLBS, I’d say his first four games are a disappointment. No other way to put it. No sacks, no fumble recoveries, no forced fumbles, no interceptions, no passes defensed. He’s not talking, but he had to be expecting more. Everyone was.

  • The Big Banana

    Reading through this morning and early afternoon’s posts, some of you guys are real funny. Mistic, you’ve got all kinds of clowns for Grads yet you agree that it’s better to have him in there right now….wait…let that sink in….come again? LOL!

    Just hilarious. Um…yeah…Grads is best right now yet he stinks out loud. LOL! And Campbell is better than Grads but “he’s not ready yet”. Where’s the logic?

    Let me explain something to you…if Grads stinks out loud, and he’s better to have in there than Campbell, then Campbell stinks louder!!! Yes, and that there is called logic! Take it for a spin. You might like it. LOL!

    And you speak of being objective yet you happily include the INT that Murphy himself hand delivered to the Texans in the turnover numbers you keep reciting over and over and over.

    As for you guys that are critical of Grads but don’t necessarily think there is a better option, you have some valid points. He has to get better. But you have to admit that the offense is watchable for the first time in years. Not bad for a guy we got off the scrapheap. He’s no Peyton Manning, folks. Lets hope he improves because he’s all we got.

    [Comment From Mr. Hopeful]
    What do you feel is the biggest commonality in the Raiders prolonged run d woes?
    Tuesday October 5, 2010

    jerrymac:
    A consistent, run-clogging DT to tie up blockers and make the occasional play, forsaking the pass rush.

    =================

    Hey Jerry, that sounds like that NT Rockstar, Br1en and I and some others have been begging for….for like 4 years.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’m getting less impressed with Rolando McClain every week. On both Foster’s and Chris Johnson’s long runs he was out of position and got sealed off. I know he wasn’t expected to turn around the poor run defense by himself and he’s a rookie running the defense but I was still expecting him to make more of an impact than he has so far.

    jerrymac: Agree on all counts. And I’m someone who advocated drafting him. Not writing him off, but thought he’d have done more through four games.

  • RaiderRockstar

    jerrymac: Problem with Houston is he’s another three technique guy _ just like Seymour, just like Kelly. None are true nose tackles.

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

    Jerry also dropped an “ass” in his chat as well as revealing that some of the Texans players were laughing at Lamaar Houston after the game for how easy it was to make him lose his cool.

  • mistic1

    My 2011 wish list.

    Fire cable
    Hire hu jack / or trestman.
    draft for the o-line
    draft a nose tackle

  • RaiderLen

    Afternoon Fellas,

    My 2010 wish list.

    Have a D that stops the run and gives up 20 pts or less per game.

    An O Line that allows whomever is the QB time to make a read.

    The return to health of DMAC.

  • RaiderLen

    Sundays loss falls on the shoulders of the Defense.

    They were “offensive”.

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

    My 2011 wish list:

    Someone other than Al Davis running the Raiders.

    I’d be content with that.

  • RaiderLen

    Dakota,

    Santa Clause Himself could not grant that wish.

    The Grim Reaper is the only Guy with that kind of juice.

  • DMAC

    Wassup peoples!

  • DMAC

    My wish list is 2 long…….
    But my # 1 wish is to get rid of Kelly and get a real NT!!

  • RaiderLen

    But my # 1 wish is to get rid of Kelly and get a real NT!!

    It would be interesting to see what all of the 3 tech tackles could do with a solid NT in the lineup.

    I’d keep Kelly and just put him next to a real NT…and get a real LDE that can hold the edge. I think Seymour could be that LDE…but apparently the Raiders don’t.

  • DMAC

    Kelly can’t do either 3tech/NT!!! What has this piece of schit done to help the Raiders???????

  • DMAC

    NADA!

  • DMAC

    NOTHING!

    Later ya’ll. Gotta run! We’ll touch on this Kelly situation 2morrow.

    So is mine. Campbell sucked. Gradkowski has played far better. That’s why he’s starting. Fact.

    I actually like the guy from what I’ve read and heard. lol.

    He is a least holding himself accountable.

    I wish the LA Kings would bring back their silver and black…..I might watch them again….if I could find them on TV…

    Trying to find a way to fill the void the Raiders always leave after the first quarter of the season ends their season.

    —————————————-
    Gradkowski has put points on the board.

    Dude has flaws, but He has managed to do more with the offense than Jason.

    Kelly actually got a snap at DE in the 4th qtr with Seymour and Bryant at DT.

    Hope to see more of that with Houston not working out at DE.

    Kelly was productive at DE early in his career.

    Houston will get it together.

    Steep learning curve in the NFL.

    ——————-
    I’d like to see that line up.

    T Scott is a situational Rusher.

    Nasty has demonstrated an ability to get to the QB.

    Hell, if they can drop T Kelly in pass coverage, he ought to agile enough to do some damage against RT’s in the league.
