NFP: Raiders add punter to practice squad

The agent for punter Danny Baugher told the National Football Post his client was joining the practice squad of the Raiders.

Baugher led the UFL with a 44.6 yards per punt average and a 36.7 net for the two-time league champion Las Vegas Locomotives. Las Vegas is coached by Jim Fassel, the father of Raiders special teams coordinator John Fassel.

Baugher has been in the camps of the Bengals, Patriots, Falcons and Broncos.

Signing Baugher to the practice squad would enable the Raiders to get a look at him during practice as well as Lechler. If it was determined by the end of the week Lechler wouldn’t be able to punt, Baugher could be promoted to the 53-man roster.

    Goodness Lefty, he started 3 games his first year in san francisco 3 more the next year and was already kicking butt those first 2 years.

    why are you ignoring those starts?

    you are talking total years I’m talking starting years being that Jason has had 6 of those and shown nothing special.
    =======================================================

    Putrid non applicable comparison. Young had rice, groomed behind the greatest qb of all time joe cool, and played for bill walsh, and qb guru holmgren.

    JC has been afforded none of those advantages, Gibbs was his best ally in his first two years.

    For the record young was traded to sf because he was considered a bust in tampa.

    Jc may not be considered stellar, or a star, but i have never heard anyone describe him as a draft bust.

    No Alex7 is not AIG. I doubt he has as many grammatical errors or get as annoyed as I do with JC. BTW, Raider Reggie please stop insulting Jim Plunkett by comparing him to JC. Jim Plunkett would never dump off when we have 11 secs left and no time out. Jim Plunkett was actually wanted by the fans to replace Pastorini. Jim Plunkett actually sat for a few years and had to earn his starting job rather than being given like JC was. JC aint no Jim Plunkett but keep on dreaming.

    Sure let’s give JC another chance in 2011. However, I doubt he will give our team a chance when faced with a 4th and all or nothing. He’ll dump off again like he has his entire life.

    Campbell is who he is to think he is gonna become good are decent is wishfull thinking. The flaws this man has can’t be coached it’s the way he’s gonna be period. Can’t read defenses, slow decision making in the pocket, overthrows everybody, but the most important one he gets to nervous after as many yrs he’s been starting he just shouldn’t be that nervous.
    ==========================================================

    For the record the knock on jc is that he is only decent not good (media hype).

    Also please tell me how you can ascertain his level of proficiency when it comes to making decisions, the speed of his decision making, or his ability to read defenses?

    These are phony labels, that cant be proven by any of the haters on this board, by any tangible proof. they fall into the realm of useless opinion.

    However his career numbers not only suggest that he is able to read defenses and make good decisions, they blow those labels right out of the water. 66 td to 46 ints fellas, it really is that simple.

  • aig-raiders

    IMO, you guys have lowered the bar of expectation so low with JC at the helm. It’s as if you’re doing everything you can to make sure JC look good. Ford, DMAC, Dline, and even the Oline have all carried the team at least once this season. JaPanic has yet to carry this team when faced with the moment of truth. He looks good padding his stats when dumping off and Reece/Ford/Dmac takes it to the house. Why should we settle for this? Shouldnt we want our starting QB to at least be competent? You guys let the Dline and DMAC mask JC again. I have a hunch he will get exposed again this weekend. Indy is a good team and will not let us off the hook like the Donks did last Sunday.

    I’d be happy to accept that JC can be like Young. But show me this year where JC has improved. People points out to the W/L but imo W/L are really for coaches. The coach is responsible for all 3 phases of the game. JC is responsible for only 1 phase.

    Comical.

    You posted his win loss record and even claimed that he was the reason for the foreskin failures, because he was surrounded by a good team in washington.

    Which one is it bra? Now that he is in a better situation and winning, and your guy flopped, winning doesnt matter?

    TOM CABLE AS GM!! i must give due where due is deserved..

    While Cable in charge we have been drafting wisely, 2 4th round picks I hated have become huge assets… Ford and Shonasty…

    but I still dont like him as a coach, but I sure credit him for getting us up out of the hole we have been in.. getting rid of Cable will put us at a 3-4 win seasons again.. but I doubt if he ever will get us 10 wins… so hire him as GM and get another coach..

    thats my 2 cents..
    ===========================================

    i honestly believe this is cables greatest asset, the way he works with Davis to build the team. he is better in the draft room than on the field.

  • aig-raiders

    Mistic,

    What was Grad’s worst game compared to JC with the Raiders? 10.7 vs 60. Grad at least put his team in a position to win the game with a 2 min drive. Your boy didnt even bother to give our team a chance with 11 secs left. NOT A FRIGGIN CHANCE.

  • RaiderRockstar

    The old man Al’s best move last year was allowing the coaches and scouts to run the draft and him staying the heck out of it.

    If the old man would have run the draft like he did when they took DHB and Mitchell in the first two rounds in Cables first full year as coach, he would have REACHED for Bruce Campbell with that 1st pick and would have taken Jacoby Ford in the 2nd Round.

    However the amount of input he has really cant be proven or otherwise. i wouldnt want him as a gm.

    Mistic,

    Amazing how you avoided the actual point. I’ve only brought up JC’s W/L when other people on here used W/L to make the case against Orton/Palmer/McNabb. Again, do you want me to go down the W/L path with JC? I KNOW YOU DONT. So please move on already.

    I’ve never switched my stance Mistic. I know 100% to be a fact that JC is not an NFL QB. He is the token qb that you have lowered the bar of expectation for. If he was not Black, you know darn well you’d be all over his a$$.
