Lechler says he’ll play

Raiders punter Shane Lechler told the media he plans on playing Sunday when the Raiders host the Indianapolis Colts.

In case he can’t, punter Danny Baugher was officially added to the practice squad and Quentin Scott was released.

More to come later . . .

    When the schedule was made the NFL had no idea Favre or Vick would be the Qb’s.

    The NFL has become a star driven league like the NBA. It has nothing to do with competitive football. This is Vick versus Favre.

    Gruden will coach Troy as 1 minute past the end of regular season.

    Troy may be a micronaught, but he is amped at all times.

    Wish JC would tear into a WR or get pumped up on the field…Dude is big time mellow.

    Simple because I watch him play on Sundays. I’ve watched #21 since he was drafted. He doesn’t make plays he doesn’t even knock a ball down much less wrap his hands around it. He cant blitz worth a dam. He’s a decent tackler but rarely makes any.

    Hairy, by game time we could be out of the playoffs and mailing it in. Not the best game to put on prime time. Next year we will be ready for prime time…DMAC, Ford, Miller, and McClain are the reasons.
    ———————————
    I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibillity that Tenn beats K.C. this week, and keeps our hopes alive for one more week. That being said, Even if by some miracle we made the playoffs we aren’t ready to do any “damage” yet to the big time teams in the AFC. Hopefully next year we continue our evolution. In the mean time I will hope for a miracle.

    Singletary went back to T Smith?
    lmao

    Singletary is incompetent along the lines of our current Pres or say T Cable for benching JC in the Mia game.

    I understand I an a bias Raider fan, but don’t you think most of the country would rather watch Oak/Ind for the Sun nite game as opposed to watching Phi pummel a pathetic Min team? I could see If Phi/Min was the original Sun nite game but it was flexed in over the SD/Cin game. Raiders and Indy have more at stake and is going to be a lot more competitive and interesting. Just sayin.

    Vick VS Webb is not that impressive. Vick and the Eagles are going to blow them out of the water and Webb will get some #’s in garbage time. Yawn

    A few comments for the upcoming game…

    First, this has to be a playoff type game for our Raiders, regardless of what will happpen the rest of the season, this is a measuring stick game…Just where are we? How will we fare against the likes of Peyton Manning? Are we good enough to hang with the big boys? (Pittsburgh game aside, where I personally belive we just didn’t show up mentally)

    Second, MARCEL REESE!!! I love what you do with your hands, I love the chemistry between you and “The Magic Man” JCampbell, but man o’man lay a DANG Block!! On the botched reverse for a fumble against Denver, YOU GOT BLOWN UP! I just don’t know if the gifted recieving is enough to compensate for the missed blocks, and being pushed backwards into plays.

    Third point, Ricky Brown should not be taking up a roster spot after this year, he’s been servicable on ST, and as a back up, but an upgrade is required. And while dicussing LB’s where o where is Thomas Howard? He starts for us for 2-3 years and now he’s nowhere to be seen, that point is not to take away from the great job of Groves and Wimbley, but from starter to nowhere??

    I can’t help but think that Howard may be useful against the colts, for that matter our Safeties had better bring their A game against the Colts passing attack.

    Anyway as always GO RAIDERS!

    Roch,
    I been wondering if moving Reece to WR next year might be a good idea. Have him drop 15lbs and turn him loose opposite Ford. Send Murphy & DHB packing and draft a true FB.

  • Roch R

    Reese doesn’t have the speed to play on the outside IMO, maybe as a WR/TE or a slot reciever, or have him simply work on his blocking. I don’t know the answer but for every great play he makes he seems to take a play away.

  • http://www.jerryisatwit.com MistaTheGuru

    Hey C Schilens has been back! OMG he’s a HOF’er! He looks GREAT! He REALLY picked our offense up!

    Where are you Schilens boot lickers at?

    LMFAO

    Just wanted to add one of the main pluses to Reece’s game is the element of surprise. Converting him back to wideout would take that away. Maybe he can just work on his blocking.

  • http://www.jerryisatwit.com MistaTheGuru

    I think he has the speed he is doing it from the FB position. If he dropped 15lbs he could doit against DB’s. Its not ALL about speed remember Freddy B? He has the size and quickness to separate.

    What are we getting from DHB, Schilens, and Murphy from the Wr spot? Cant be any worse with Reece!

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Massage The Guys,

    Put me in that camp. Unsure why fans “get behind” a particular player, but Schillens is in that Fargas, Sam Sword, Arman Shields, OL with the Red Mullet, category…

    Dig the cat and have no reason to believe he will ever amount to anything.

    And I am cool with that.

    Unlike you, how other percieve me is not important.

    You want I should be who you want me to be?

    Major Mo.
