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

More to come later . . .

    Collie out for Sunday’s game. On IR.

  • You dont change your game plan or what works just because some mope like Freeney flapped his gums. We will run where we see fit, allover and everywhere that includes Freeney but the entire Colt Def is needs to be smashed.

    If you want to follow KK down the road of idiocy be my guest but consider the source!

    I’m just a semi-pro blogger, but this is exactly what I’d do. Run it straight at Freeney & Session.

  • Way to sack up Shane!

    Tell your buddy SeaPerch he cost us the playoffs in Ariz, thanks in advance.

  • JB

    Put Nnamdi on Reggie Wayne all day long. Bring in the big nickel D and double the TE & bracket the other WR. Strong rush by the front 4 to keep the pressure on Manning.

    Alex7,

    you are confusing cover 2 with tampa 2, Regardless of the version both defenses keep the safeties deep, forcing the offense to throw underneath the deep safeties

    bone up a little, and be informed

  • KK, you wont see anything from your section 8 house will you the game is likely blacked out.

    Buy a ticket with your purp lips stimulus check and stimulate the economy! You can even bring your supermodel wife with you to the game!

    I’d like to see the Raiders run left at Freeney all day. Veldheer & Gallery, baby!

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Not only can we run on this team, I doubt that the line backers can cover dmac, z miller, or reece underneath the safeties and in the seams.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Mista,

    I’d run it at Freeney not because he ran his mouth, but because he’s an average run defender and Clint Session is a light, oft-injured weakside ‘backer. Pat Angerer on the strongside is a much better run defender than Session and Mathis can be a bit more disciplined at staying home against the run.

  • SilverNBlackPA

    This is the game for Ford, Murphy and DHB to hopefully shine. Their secondary is absolutely riddled with injuries.

  • Marshall needs to blitz Manning early & often unless the front 4 can put enormous pressure on him. If he has time back there he will have his way with us.

    #21 if you want to step your game up and make a play I guess week 15 is a good place to start! Routt, CJ, Huff, Branch, and MM has made their fair share feel free to join in on the fun!

    I’d feel much better if Campbell had a quicker release to neutralize the speed rush from Freeney & Mathis.

    Run, run, run, then run some more and go heavy on the 3 step drops. Absolutely no 7 steps. That’s asking for trouble with the speed rushers of the Colts and Campbell’s tendency to fold before a bigtime pass rush.

    =======================================================

    terrible mistake to blitz manning too often, they will dink and dunk you to death. better to jam the wrs and be really physical with them. let our natural pressure do most of the work. mix in the occasional blitz up the gut.

  • I would attack them everywhere there is opportunity and stay within what we do that works. If you block the other guy the play will be a success no matter if its Freeney, Mathis or Angerer.

    =====================================================

    Slow down freeny and mathis with power running right at them. Use play action passing, and and draws to take advantage of the overly agressive freeny and mathis.

  • Thats why I said “if” the front 4 doesn’t get at him and I dont mean occasionally I mean OFTEN! Jamming the WR is nice but thats not enough Manning will slice us up if given 3 seconds back there to look around.

  • A wet grass field is going to slow down those Indy smufs on Def.

    Someone on our D line needs to make sure Manning has mud on his face!

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    SilverNBlackPA,

    Agreed. See Cutler (who I can’t stand) release that ball on the quick fake…If JC can develop that skill, Miller, et al, would be open all day.

    A clean JC uniform and steady pounding the Rock like a Thai whore on fleet week (over you Kool Kell for input) is the key.

  • Lowdown, you ever had a body massage in Pattaya? Oh my god.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Word…and price is not an issue.

    2) Mendanau (Philipines..becuase of price)

    3) Guangzhao…awesome selection

    4) Akasa…more expensive but the dames are fresh.

  • Quentin Scott is cut while Hartwell Brown sticks?! WTF?

  • Trade Jon Condo for a Thai whore on fleet week!

    ********************

    100% correct! Any WR crossing no man’s land within the 5 yard limit should be neutralized and “disabled” for the remainder of the game by our LB’s & safeties. Romac should lay some people out, ala Sproules style, if they dare get into his area. Do NOT allow the dink & dunks. Put some real hurt on them.

  • HairyBush

    I was going to say who the hell is Quinton Scott

  • HairyBush

    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.

    ===================================================

    The quick passing short drop game is exactly the type of passing attack this tampa / cover 2 was designed to foil.

    You must send receivers deep to get the deep safeties to back pedal then run backs and tights and wrs underneath the vertical routes. This exposes seams in the zones, in order to do that play action deep drops.

  • Hairy,
    We literally stunk and been a embarrassment on prime time the last 6 years. Id rather we get back on prime time when we are more consistent.

    Imagine if the our game against SF was on MNF!

    I understand what your saying, I guess it’s like Jerry Mac’s mind set of “show me”. I do believe this game regardless of if we win or not will be competitive. I don’t think it will have been like our previous prime time experiences (had it been flexed in). I think Oak is up to the challenge as opposed to the egg they laid in SF. I think the team is starting to “get it”. You can’t take any game lightly. It’s good to see as the season evolves so are the Raiders. IMO

  • KK?
    You’ve been asked a question…

    Troy Smith got the starting job back frm Alex Smith?

  • Aaaaah, those were the days, Lowdown.

  • 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.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Alex was Singeltary’s “Hail Mary”…he was hoping to keep his job.

    Now that he has lost his job and Gruden will be signed, the Yorks have stepped in and put Troy on the field.

    Hate the 49ers but Troy is entertaining and effective.

    Was hoping we would have signed him as Hue has knowledge of his abilities.

    K2 he likes you!

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