Status quo on Raiders


No sign of Chris Johnson and Chaz Schilens as the Raiders went through their warmups and drills Friday, with everyone else presented and accounted for.

Will have limited availability later today, including an injury report from coach Tom Cable . . .

    I hope Raiders scouts are watching the college QBs play,


    LOL. You think the Raiders refer to scouts?


    Then I hope Al is paying attention to QB play

    There’s your Raiders scouting dept, basically.

    I’ve always felt that the Raiders have the talent necessary to compete, however all that’s needed is the discipline and smart play.
    Obviously, the WR core is not good enough to compensate a mid-level qb situation, or to add to a better than good RB core and running game. This team might not win many more games this year given the schedule ahead, but at least it can expect better competitive value and build for the future.
    McClain might have the smarts and physicality to be a good player, but so far he hasn’t shown that he can be a great player, and I made the comparison with Patrick Willis, because he is a player who made great impact from the beginning of his career and McClain hasn’t.
    But, as it has always been the case, drafts seem to even out in the long run. Al Davis has made obvious blunders in the first rounds, but he has drafted solid talent in the later rounds. Case in point the whole slew of rookies and young players that could and should compete now and in the near future.

    We are a good QB away from really competing. Our defense has a rookie middle linebacker calling the coverages. We will get better and just laid an egg. If we get production at the QB position these last 6 weeks, we may be in business. Whoever it is, has to get the WRs involved.

    Agreed, even with subpar QB play we could be 7-3 right now with better play calling and half the penalties

    the talent is here. motivation seems to be an issue too. It depends on which team shows up each Sunday. I mean it wouldn’t surprise me if we beat Miami by 3 or 4 TD’s on Sunday, but it wouldn’t surprise me if we lost by 3 pts or 10 pts either
