98

Seymour, Walker inactive

The Raiders will play without starting defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) and right tackle Langston Walker (concussion) today against the Indianapolis Colts in a game that appears to have playoff implications only for the visitor.

With the Chiefs up on Tennessee 31-7, the Raiders are on the brink of being eliminated from the playoff race.

Other Oakland inactives include WR Johnnie Lee Higgins, CB Walter McFadden, CB Jeremy Ware, LB Bruce Davis and G Bruce Campbell. J.T. O’Sullivan is the third quarterback.

Inactive for the Colts are DB Al Afalava, DB Kelvin Hayden, RB Mike Hart, RB Javarris James, LB Clint Session, G Jacques McClendeon, G Jamie Thomas and DT Dan Muir.

    HERE COME THE TITANS!

    lol. They scored a TD.

    We’re going to make a movie called, “Forget The Titans”.

  • socalraider2408

    my prediction was 8-8 in the preseason. Playoffs would have been really nice but I can live with being relevent and playing meaningful december fb again. we are by far better then the past couple of seasons

  • Thec07

    All in All this young team did improve against a “soft schedule” I hope the trend continues in 2011.

  • Just Fire Baby

    With the elimation today, I hope the team still plays for the name on the front of the jersey and not the one on the back.

  • 187killa

    the raiders dont even have a name in the front….

  • Just Fire Baby

    Figuratively not literally

  • socalraider2408

    Titans just picked off Croyle!!! The Queefs think they have it locked up. Still alot of time left.

    89706Raider,

    Do keep in mind that this is the NFL and that winning is the only thing that matters.

    I hear you on the progress from 7 years of unacceptable football…but let’s not wax too poetic about effort and all that stuff. This team THREW AWAY its opportunity due to stupidity, sloppiness and lack of attention to detail.

    This isn’t you 8 year old’s little league

  • 187killa

    i kno lol.

    although most teams do have a log or something in the front…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Troy Smith benched in the 4th quarter, lol.

    He was screaming at Singletary on the bench earlier.

  • SnB Production

    your 8 year old’s

    Sorry ending to a sorry season.

  • Roch R

    I am looking forward to these last two games, for a young Raider Team, face it, this is our playoffs….

    Game 1) – Peyton Manning!
    Game 2) – In Arrowhead, to SPOIL the chiefs bid, and go 6 – 0 in the division!!

    After these last more than a few years!! I say hell”ya!

    Go Raiders!

    PS: Note Seymour is Inactive WTF

  • buckeyeraider

    I know they have to be disappointed. I just hope they don’t come out flat vs. Indy. It would do alot for this team to beat one of the league’s “elite” franchises.

    Even if Indy is down this year. They still have #18. It’s interesting to note the post-SB loss jinx even affects Manning and the Colts.

    I hope the Raiders take out their frustrations on the Colts. Finishing 9-7 or even 8-8 would be a nice building block for this franchise after the last seven years.

    Like Jerry said, this could be like ’99 all over again. The launching point for a Raider resurgence.

  • TerrapinRaider

    Seymour being inactive is a huge problem. I don’t know if you guys noticed but we had ZERO penetration (well near zero) on the line when he went out vs the Broncos.

  • Raiders for life

    A high five and a pitcher of beer.
    I can live with 9-7 and a sweep.

    A kicker drafted in the first round is either Superman, or a mistake. Jano has done nothing to earn his first round draft status in the decade he’s been here. I’d say he’s earned a second round status, if even that. He’s been decent, but when you’re drafted number one, you’re spectacular. Period. Jano should be the Michael Jordan of NFL field goal kickers. He was nothing of the sort. He’s a bust, and an Al Davis scholarship. And, his muffed FG against Arizona is as much to blame as ANYTHING for us being in this disappointing scenario today.
    ……

    He missed 3 that day, including what would have been the game winner.

  • Roch R

    Yeah it is noticable when he’s not in, but Big Tom and that Bryant kid from Harvard sometimes cause some damage, and what about the game that Groves had last week!! Not to mention Houston and Sho-nasty. This d line could still do some damage, don’t forget big John Hendersen is back on the line, he’s servicable.

  • SnB Production

    Thec,

    Each year is a new year though. The Raiders concern me because this team tends to relax at exactly the wrong time.

    This offseason is the time for RAZOR sharp focus on preparation, draft, contract negotiation, weight room and all that.

    I am concerned that Cable starts patting people on the back like he did during the bye week.

    This team is NOT out of the woods yet.

    There will be no hiding next year…every team will be ready to play the Raiders…they will have a season of film on Hue’s offense….this team will have to buss azz next year.

  • Just Fire Baby

    So with no labor agreement, and Cable’s contract up at the end of the year, does he even go into the facility the Monday after the season is over?

  • buckeyeraider

    Has Randy Moss even seen the field today?
    I saw him interviewed the other day and he was babbling about how much he’d like to resign in Tenn next year. He’s a southern boy and Nashville is a southern city. Blah Blah Blah.

    Why, is he content just sitting on the sideline and cashing paychecks? Isn’t he a competitor?

    No, I almost forgot. He’s a Quitter.

  • http://www.pro-football-reference.com/ KoolKell

    I agree SnB, but, the Raiders will be better next year, and our opponents will have to bust azz next year, too.

    Looks like today and next week will be tryouts for next season…Seymour gets the next two weeks off early!

  • buckeyeraider

    Wow, what a play by the KC DB to steal that ball from Britt. That would’ve been first down inside the 20.

    If Tenn could’ve punched it in there, they would’ve been down 13 with 9 and 1/2 mins to go. Plus, they would’ve had mighty mo in their favor.

    But, it’s just not to be, I guess.

    Raiders needed help today, but couldn’t get it. They have nobody to blame but themselves.

  • mikedlopes

    We still the best team in the devision

    This is a young team, that if the trend continues will improve. thats my hope is that the tend from last year continues. If it does we will challege for the AFC…

    No, it ain’t your 8 year olds team, but this team has made too many strides toward the positive to dwell on the negative.

    Heartbreaking. As cynical as I am, when we get close, I’m as much on board as anyone. (Some would say that makes me a bandwagon fan. Sue me.) Nonetheless, this hurts.

    It only hurts caude you care MR. Thays a good thing.
