Campbell, Boller taking reps


Jason Campbell and Kyle Boller were getting work at quarterback during Wednesday’s media window, with Bruce Gradkowski an interested bystander.

Of the three players who had concussions against Denver, center Samson Satele and defensive end Matt Shaughnessy were at practice, while Chris Johnson was not. To the untrained eye, Johnson apppeared to have no symptoms following the game or Monday in the locker room, talking with reporters and looking sharp and clear-eyed.

There was no sign of Louis Murphy, the wide receiver who had a chest injury which Profootballtalk.com reported to be a bruised lung.

Guard Robert Gallery (calf) was on the field practicing. Linebacker Thomas Howard was doing agility drills and did not appear to be practicing. Wide receiver Chaz Schilens (knee) and defensive tackle John Henderson (stress fracture) were not present.

More to come . . .

    Cable’s only duty is to make sure this team is ready week in and week out….and occasionally call a timeout.

    How dare you sir!?

    SOMEone has to hold up one finger to indicate go for the extra point.

    Geez. Some people.

    Doesn’t matter if Bruise is healthy or not. There’s no way in hell Cable could play him over JC after last week.

    Unless Cable named him starter for the year in week 2.

    Which um, he did. And it was a good idea.

    My main problem with Campbell is he never gets the ball out on time. He wont throw the ball to a spot and trust his reciever to get there, he waits for them to be open then lets it go. Perfect example is that 1st quarter pass to murphy, if he had let that go a split second earlier murphy would have had space to run. By then its too late and he has to throw it away or into coverage. I dont know why he doesnt have better timing with his recievers that bruce, seeing as he got most if not all the reps with them during training camp and OTAs.

    You forgot throwing out the red flag.

    I don’t know, someone else probably tells him to do that too.

    They have a chart that makes that call for him. Here it is:

    We’re not going to be able to win the rest of our games by 6 TDs. Some of them may comedown to shootouts.

    You’d prefer Campbell in a shootout Debo?

    Oh, wait. You’d prefer Russell. Lol.

    If Grad can beat out your boy Russell (what an achievement that was, lol) and your boy Campbell in the span of less than a year – and according to you he sucks – what does that say about your boys?

  • LA to TheBay

    Maybe he was just saying that we’re number one.

  • 100PercentRaider

    He was probably holding up the 1 b/c we were at 58 and some people on the team wanted to go for 2, you can kinda see him smiling a little bit as he does it

    “Murphy suffered the injury in a friendly-fire collision with teammate Marcel Reese during the Broncos win.”

    Does this crap happen to other teams?

  • 100PercentRaider

    Cameron Morrah, Brandon Mebane, Justin Forsett, Marshawn Lynch. All former Cal players coming home this week. Pete Carrol really likes his Pac-10 players

    Brandon Lloyd in an interview:
    “There’s really no excuse for getting blown up on like that. That’s a high school game,” Lloyd said. That’s not a professional football game and it’s embarrassing. It’s just not right and there’s nothing really much we can do about that today but learn from it. Maybe there’s something during the week that we did wrong as players and coaches and try to correct that moving forward.”

    Lloyd was also complimentary of the Raiders, calling them a playoff team.

    “You look at our division and you can’t look at the Raiders anymore and say ‘Oh, these guys have great talent and the best athletes in the world and they’re not good.’ We can’t say that because our division is so wide open because every team has an opportunity,” Lloyd said. “That makes the Raiders even more dangerous because not only do they have the best athletes in the NFL, but they have confidence and motivation. Now look at them: They’re a playoff team.”

    The Broncos seem convinced of the Raiders improvement.
