No changes


Defensive tackle Richard Seymour was absent Thursday while running back Darren McFadden and tackle Langston Walker were going through the walkthrough portion of practice as if they would participate.

That’s what happened Wednesday as well, although McFadden (toe/ankle) and Walker (concussion) were listed as having not particpated.

Coach Tom Cable said Wednesday Seymour’s status probably wouldn’t be determined until Friday or Saturday.

    No Changes…Al Davis is still alive.

    89. Hard to argue with that. He is pretty green but yeah, there were problems. Personell descisions and player rotations were a problem this year too at certain points and hurt in some key critical situations.

    Cable’s a work in progress but if he can get us some consistency on the O line were in business. Finding a RT is theoretically easier than a LT. Velds a rook, Satele’s had games where he’s gotten it, Bruce Campbell could come on line too.

    Consistency could begin to finally pay off.

  • Come to think of it, Hayes and GoodOle, the Raiders probably could win 8 games, just like they might win this year, with the 4 players I mentioned and 49 walk ons. LOL. It is what it is.

  • I’ll go out on a limb and credit the 2 extra wins we got this year (over last year’s total), to Ford, McFadden, Asomugha and Z. Miller. And I might even throw Gradkowski in there to, for his win against St. Louis. Take the other 48 players and replace them with walk ons, and I think you get the same result. LOL. Sorry, but it’s true.

    Raiders fans have this to look foward to, Al will go down in history as being the longest living human ever.

    Raiders at Chiefs

    Florio’s take: Anyone who thinks this game is meaningless doesn’t understand the depth of the rivalry between the franchises. The Chiefs need to maintain momentum, and they’d love to atone for close loss in Oakland from earlier in the year. The Raiders are on their way, but they’re not yet ready to win at Arrowhead.

    Florio’s pick: Chiefs 20, Raiders 13.

    Has this dumbfk ever watched a Raider-Chiefs game? Jamarcus kicked KC’s ass at Arrowhed the last two years. And Culpepper beat them there in 2007. THREE STRAIGHT FLORIO!

    Florio is a freakin moron!

    So whats the deal with McFadden is it turf toe or is it ankle injury

  • JB

    Looking at Walter Mock Draft for 2011. They say we take Nate Solder OT 6’8″ 315# 4.89/40 in the 2nd round and Chris O’Dowd C 6’4″ 300# 5.16/40 in the 3rd round. Damn, I certainly hope he’s right. That would be two outstanding and needed player positions. We could then put BCampbell in at RG and our O-line should no longer be part of the problem.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Nate Solder wont fall to the 2nd……

  • SnB Production

    Bruce Campbell????? He’s not reliable at all. Not even activated this year…you guys think he’s a secret weapon?

    They need RT and RG in free agency or draft

  • PurpleDrank81

    I’d rather go through free agency because the draft isnt that stacked with linemen this year…

    They need RT and RG in free agency or draft

    And…possibly a C. If Satele goes out Veldheer has to fill in. That means M. Henderson plays LT.

  • PurpleDrank81

    Satele actually didnt play bad this year… If we can snag up a center in the draft then so be it but Satele has had a pretty good year..

  • alex7

    Florio meant the Raiders aren’t ready to win in KC this year (despite their improvement). Weird you didn’t realize that. He’s also right.

  • Raiders for life

    I agree, Satele has improved and had a good year. I just don’t like having Veldheer as the back up center, he’s had a good rookie year at LT and I’d like for him to stay there.

  • PurpleDrank81

    A back up center would be cool

  • alex7


    I agree on Satele. He is very similar to Jason Campbell and the entire team.

    Solid vs mediocre talent.
    Struggles mightily vs top teams.

    As long as he’s the anchor, we will continue to struggle against teams like the Steelers, Rams, Dolphins, and Colts.

    Gets pushed backwards waaaay too much on passing plays.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Not sure how Jamarcus kicked KC’s azz in Arrowhead

    Going 6 of 17 for 55 yards and than 7 of 24 for 109 yards without any TD’s is hardly kicking azz.

    If anything, his awful performances caused us to not be able to blow them out like we should have and rest players, thus costing us wins the following week.

  • Man I hate when work gets in the way of this blog!

    What is new? We fire Cable yet?

    Agreed. He will be gone by the time the Raiders pick in Round 2.

  • “We didn’t improve fast enough,” (Hue) Jackson said. “We want perfection. That’s what I expect from our football team. We expect to be challenging for the playoffs, challenging for our division year in and year out and we’re not getting that done. So to me, that’s a disappointment. There’s either first place or there’s last place and there’s no in between.”

    Music to Al’s ears….

    Not so sure about that. You might be giving that guy too much credit. I think Florio IS an idiot regardless, but saying the Raiders might not win at KC is far from some brazen prediction from a sooth saying prognosticator.

  • raidrum

    biggest blunder is linebacker core. shoulda kept morrison as OLB or at least played howard more. These hybrid DE types didn’t amount to much. Plus it seemed that Campbell was slow to learn offense, thus the change to Grads. Still I see progress and hope

  • raidertalk

    Is it just me or does it feel like Seymore has just checked out on this season once the playoffs were off the table?

    Cable is gonna need all the help he can get to make sure this not a losing season.
