Gradkowski re-injures shoulder

Quarterback Bruce Gradkowski re-injured his throwing shoulder in a 33-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins and rendered the Raiders’ quarterback issue meaningless for at least the next few weeks.

Gradkowski said it felt much like it did after the San Diego game, a third-degree separation which cost him five weeks.

Raiders coach Tom Cable said after the game the plan was always to go back to Gradkowski once he was completely healthy.

Much more to come later . . .

    No more black, athletic QBs please.

    I want to see a white, intelligent, accurate pocket passer.

    Brees, Rivers, Peyton Manning, Brady, Schaub, Matt Ryan, Rodgers, etc…

    Sorry, but that’s how I feel.

    I will NOT be watching another Raider game this year.

    I hope that next year we can be better. This year is over.

    ————

    Tried it many times and failed miserably myself. Gonna be brutal next week. 3 weeks already and no wins. This game may have marked the end of Cable as well.

    No, just most have to rely on intelligence over athleticism.

    +++++++++++==

    Nice clean up job…You a politician???
    …..

    LOL… no. Ever see Any Given Sunday? Dude started out thinking his athleticism could overcome lack of preparation and passing skills.

    No more guys like this. I want a REAL PASSER. A guy who knows he has to be smart and accurate.

    Just seems like most of those guys are white. He could be green for all I give a sh!t.

    I just want a QB. Not an athlete/QB.

  • Raiders4eve

    what actually separates a great team from the mediocre teams are ability to adjust during the game. You look at elite teams in this league, they implement and adapt new ways to win the game when things are going wrong. Cable had to do major changes offensively but our team only stick to the gameplan, thats why we lose…

    Raider75,

    that was some racist azz ish you said. But I agree 95%. Just don’t think white QBs are the only ones with intelligence.
    ………

    So be it. If that is offensive, then it is what it is.

    There are 32 starting Qb’s in the mfl, only 8 of them are any good

  • bg22958

    Raider Nation step away from the ledge. Let’s keep in mind that we had 5 wins all last year and that was up from the last two. There are still five games left and plenty for this young team to build on for next year. But:

    1) No more Gradkowski excuses. His performance today matched his career stats. No other team in the league would/will even think about starting this guy.

    2) Hue has to become more creative with McFadden. Darren HAS to touch the ball at least twenty times a game. If they want to stop him from running then they can’t stop him from receiving. He is THE marque player on this team and he HAS to touch the ball A LOT!

    3) Jason Campbell has not shown himself to be a franchise QB for this team either but at least he can make all the throws.

    4) Marshall has to mix up the blitzing packages. It’s either rush 4 or a full blitz. Not once did they back out off of a blitz. Not once did they flood one side of the line or the other. It took Henne three times I believe to figure this pattern out. You have to mix it up!

    5) Nhamdi has to cover the other teams best receiver. You pay him a ton of money and he is the best defensive corner in the league, why wouldn’t you (and I don’t want to hear any Al Davis makes those calls BS – cause I’m sure big Al didn’t dial up those blitzes or start Bruce today).

    6) Jacoby Ford is special – use him accordingly.

    Two tough games in a row and a tough schedule left but there are at least two more wins in this team.

  • priesttj

    somepeople are just flat ignorant. If you have 200 white QB’s and 25 black QB’s and each have 5 guy’s fail a higher % will be black. Black QB’s don’t get the luxury of sitting on a bench for 4 years learning and getting NFL money if they don’t produce they get cut. The white counterpart stays and learns the game. Just be way of sheer #’s that is the process.

    People are people and QB’s are QB’s regardless of color. THere are non-athletic black QB’s too who are very smart but they just don’t get as many opportunities…….it’s always been that way.

    In the old days every black QB was required to switch positions in order to play in the NFL or you would see a lot of them in the HOF.

    Guy’s like JaMarcus Russell set them back 10 years with his immaturity. But if you took Cam Newton and sat him down for 3 years like they did Aaron Rodgers who knows what you would have. They just don’t allow them to be 2nd string QB’s and learn if they’re not good enough to start they get cut or play another position. It’s always been that way.

    How many white running backs compared to blacks?

    Do you see me crying? No. Why? Because I understand.

    But you start talking QBs and everyone gets their panties in a wad.

    I don’t think so RaiderFag75.

  • http://www.beyonceonline.com/us/home DaRayduh

    Poor poor game planning.

    Poor defense schemes

    Whatever happened to running the ball til you get to a 3rd down yardage situation. Run first, throw on 3rd downs. Oh sure, throw an occassional strike in there, but with Bush and Reece too, why not pound it.

    Poor offensive planning. Sometimes I wonder if Hue has a ‘feel’ for the type of game that manifests itself at kick-off, or his ‘timing’ to call a home run play at the opportune time. Good coaches can smell the game and take command. Good coaches plan their plays around what type of personell they have.

    The NFL has become very complicated, and I think Al has tried to keep it on simpler terms in the sense he likes his mano y mano and the verical game. But he hires Cable (well, drew his name from a hat) and Hue and Marshall and entrusts them to do his bidding.

    To be quite honest, I have no clue how it works. I’ll have to give Al a call later after hes’ cooled a bit, and find out just exactly how things are going down.
    I’d call him now, but he is usually a wreck after games like this.

    Please No Cam Newton. I”ve watched plenty SEC games, that Nevada/Boise game, and seen plenty of highlights this Fall. The two best QBs I saw so far was Boise QB and Arkansas Mallett. I saw Locker cut up LSU a couple years ago and I know Luck is getting well coached by Harbaugh. I will be watching QBs in the Bowl games.

  • J Hill

    Lefty,

    I never in a million years would have thought Al would get rid of his project Jamarcus Russell. Not after the Lane Kiffin PC.

    So with that in mind, I thought it was pointless to pile on. Instead I was looking at ways to make the team function with him as the QB.

    We needed better Oline play, a coordinator better than Cable, and better WRs than rookies DHB and Murphy.

    Second #21 was playing hurt, and if he was not hurt one bad game wont define him.

    Last but not least: Boy I sure miss Jamarcuss Russell with him in the game i knew i was only attending the game to get blasted and talk about the good ole times.
    with him in at QB I knew our season was in the tank. With these other QB’s I’m on A Roller Coaster Of emotions, Atleast with Walruss in the game I knew my Girl would blow me to help me feel better after the loss!

    Trade his overrated arse for a decent QB and see what happens. He has some value on the open market, let’s get what we can for him.

    This is very true they would’ve boooed him out of the stadium and that’s why the coaches didn’t start him. They knew if he had a rough start the fans would jump on him like stink on doodoo.

    Why the fans are soo in lve with Bruce is beyond anything I can ever remember or think of, it’s lunacy. My good friend is a HUGGGEE Bruce Grads fan and the whle game he was making every excuse possible until it was obvious and he then said we need to put Campbell in. And I said no way let him play his way out of it and that’s the only way we will see what he has. If you take him out and we lose they would’ve blamed it all on Campbell.
