    That predictable stuff will win a SB this year you MORON. What do you think the Bears and Steelers run…….god we have some dumbells in here.

    The Ravens run that same system we ran it last year……..OMG if you don’t know something ask and until you know shut the hell up.

    ^^^^^^^^
    hahaha….once again your one dimensional way of thinking gets in the way of you making any sense at all foolio.

    The Steelers and the Ravens do NOT run the same offense the Cowboys ran in the 90′s.

    Stop lying to yourself ya old idiot.

  • Raider 510

    And yes we do need both, I would hate to see Bush in a chargers uniform. The thought makes me sick.

    I know he can maybe YOU don’t that big dude is dominant and is as capable of going for 1500 yards plus as anyone in this league. he just hasbn’t been given the chance by some stupid coaches. I trust him to carry the loas more than I do DMC he gets hurt too much. If not for that busted thumb on his strong hand he would’ve gone for 1,500+ and DMC 1,000. Both can go 70 yards Bush just runs over people. DMC runs by them.

    Two truly great backs.

    ******

    I love Bush also Priest, almost as much as McFaddy.

    I think with he and McFaddy we would be #1 in rushing next year.

    With that said, Miller is the bigger need to the team. If it came down to the two, I say Miller.

  • priesttj

    You’re lying to yourself son the Cowboys just simplified the offense they didn’t need the majority of the playbook. The fact that you don’t know football or undestand concepts is not my fault. All these coaches come from the same family tree.

    Hue just chooses to use a larger portion of the playbook kid it’s the same offense. gameplans and playcalling may make it seem different bu it is the same offense…………..period

  • J Hill

    Priest,

    Bush is not going to get 20 carries with a healthy DMac. That is just not realistic.

  • armond

    priest u need to give that dmc bush stuff a rest. when did dmc prove to run with less violence? u mean the the games where the oline didnt block for either back? u are a bush fan and feels he should carry the ball more than dmc tho he proved YOU wrong. bush should get more rushes and catches as should dmc. dmc is your featured back and really should be the main guy in the offense. he should touch the ball over 300 times like priest holmes use to. bush had 158 carriers in about 14 games which isnt enuff. if we convert more 1rst downs and to’s on defense we will get them more touches. dmc dominated this year and u still wanna relegate him to some complimentary back. dude is a stud that shouldnt be held back.

  • No Lo

    Re post 240. I like the combo of McFadden and Bush. McFadden’s best games were when he carried less than 20 times but always broke off a couple of long runs. He needs to be involved in the passing game much more especially on the perimeter with Bush at running back. Bush and McFadden need to be in the game at the same time much more often. When will DHB be relegated to his rightful spot: 4th or 5th receiver, at best.

    Re post 230. The Raiders need to become something resembling a multi-million dollar organization not the current mom and pop grocery store operation. Al wants to win but he wants to do it all by his lonesome. Does he even own a computer with internet access? I know he owns an overhead projector.

    Raiders just announced that they will be teaming with HBO for next season’s Hardknocks, in the event that there is a season.

    I can’t wait to see Hue and Al Saunders in action!

    We’ll finally see what the real story is with Al Davis. How much he is really involved!

    Right, so spend the money on Miller, Seymour, Huff, Wimbly, and Gallery.

    Zack seems to be on board:

    ”I’m excited about Hue getting the head coaching job,” Raiders tight end Zach Miller said in a phone interview with the Associated Press. ”I really like the direction our offense is going and how much we improved. This was the best offensive year we’ve had since I’ve been a Raider. I’m excited to have the continuity.”

  • Raider 510

    Don’t lie Dakota I would be way too juiced if that was true. Post the link!

  • priesttj

    Other teams have been trying to pry Mike Bush away from this team since he got here because they know what he can do. I love DMC as a player but I prefer Bush that dude is a one man gang.

  • Chris in NY

    Raiderman99,
    Good post. Totally agree about Campbell. He has a moment here and there but won’t push the ball downfield consistently enough to make this a legit passing attack.

    I feel like Vince Young is the best option for what’s available to us. Didn’t follow McNabb at all this year, but consensus is he’s done.

    One more thing is many have been in here ripping Cable for starting Grads over Campbell. Let’s get it straight though, Grads is > Campbell.

  • armond

    dmc also runs over people. that stiff arm was considered the best in college and we saw why. keep both backs and make them top priority on offense. id like to see both guys get 250 carries a piece. then add on the receiving abilities of both and u would have the best rb duo. i think bush would be a
    1400 yard rusher but so can dmc be 1.

    There are no examples of team giving one running back 20-25 carries with another one getting 15 or so.

    DMac is not Reggie Bush, lol.

    You preferred Fargas over McFadden too….you are simply a hater.

  • buckeyeraider

    Dakota you’re full of it. LOL. That would be interesting though wouldn’t it.

    You know they would never allow that kind of access to their facility. To the Raiders inner workings. That would blow their CIA-like wall of secrecy.

    Hell, I was surprised they let the cameras in for that feel good story about that lil kids make-a-wish dream to tackle McFadden.

    Hard Knocks. LOL. Not while Al’s alive.

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    Bush is big, but he runs light. McFadden is actually the more punishing runner….but some people will never accept him….that is okay, cuz I bet they cheer him when he is making all those plays.

    Every team needs two good RBs so I sure hope we keep Bush. but giving him carries over McFadden would be idiotic.

  • buckeyeraider

    New post. Beat ya to it, Dakota.

  • Jmackraider12

    regarding prriest–and dknight

    The whole concept thing is so true, i’m actually in an argument with a buddy of mine arguing the same thing. It all originated back then with Gilman then Air Corriel, its the vertical game with power running, football at its simplest, coordinators like HUGH,NORV,AL,CAM, and alot more share it basically, its one giant mish mash…it may seem different to some because some use it differently..lol..

  • priesttj

    It’s true 510

  • Chris in NY

    I really like Mike Bush.I was begging to draft him that year. But I fear it’s not going to be practical to tie up so much cash in a position with a large supply of capable RBs around. Somebody will offer Bush starting money.

    Saunders has been one the top teir OC’s in the league for over 30 years he is to offense what Labeau is to defense. He is a direct decendant of Sid Gilman. If we get him he is one OC Hue is certain to listen to and lena on. His offense under Coryell was the best footballl had to offer Norv Turner learned from Saunders and made Dallas a power house. SD’s offense is almost precisely what Saunders brings to the table. If you like what you saw from those offenses that’s what you’ll see from the Raiders next year
    ===============
    You goofy old bat.
    “top tier oc in the league for 30 years”? You goofball. He’s only been an OC since 2001. Do the math, pops.

    “Norv Turner learned from Saunders and made Dallas a power house”???
    You GOOFBALL. No he didn’t. Turner and Saunders were both assts at USC, and both came into the league as WR coaches. Saunders had nothing to do with Turner being OC at Dallas. Al became OC tens years AFTER Norv became one.

    You confuse yourself, don’t you?

    ——————————————————-
    he is like reggie bush remember? all of the semi pros said he was a 3rd down back including priest. vegas even said cantgetwright would have more rushing yards than him. we also shouldve traded him for a white t-shirt blue jeans and nikes. he also was ronnie harmon. no wait he was a slot wr! no he was suppose to be cut!

  • http://blackhillsphoto.com/sturgis-weddings/black-hills-weddings.jpg Dakota

    PriestTJ would like to limit this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYmj2NGjBnw

    Just like his boy…the next Madden as TJ used to call him….Tom Cable limited him.

    When are you and Cable going to take Fargas’ balz out of your mouths?

  • Jmackraider12

    And hey guys its been a while, had to get a new password but yeah, basically the stuff that priest sais is all rite, people just dont want to believe it cuz he shares alot of the same beliefs of AD, which are rite, this team right now is a VERY VERY talented, bruising, fast, young, force to be reckoned with, HJ,and Saunders are gona have a field day with the talent on this team in 2011.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    My thing is if we let Bush go, who is our secondary rb? We know DMC cannot carry the load for the entire year. So who could/would we get to replace him?

  • Jmackraider12

    the one thing i will disagree with partially is the bush/dmac thing….dmac is a run up the middle back!! and will break it loose for a big one, the only thing that kills me is i think both of them are guys who need 20 carries a game to get that 140yd game!! but i think what PRIEST and AD want to see is more stuff like we saw with kaufman/harvey williams in the 90′s, thats why DAVIS wanted BUSH to play a lil fullback when he got here, he loves having both on the field, like with BO and ALLEN b4 ALLEN got cocky

  • Jmackraider12

    They both can really do a lot,i think thats why HUGH came here and is attracting other offensive minds to come here, we have 2 great backs, a good tight end, and fast receivers, an offensive coordinators wet dream

  • Jmackraider12

    and i love the chuck pagano sign!! this is a very very exciting time to be a raider fan, great great staff MR.DAVIS

  • phatcable

    new post

  • Jmackraider12

    well goodnight raider nation, i will fall asleep to thoughts of vertical passing, long td runs, front 4 pressure, and lock down man to man coverage (which i think pagano will help our youngsters out with)

    Totally agree. This team needs at least 40 carries a game. At least that will keep the defense off the field and keep Jajason from screwing us.

  • Sir Dennis Eeatin-Hog

    DMAC, despite missing 3 games, was a Top 5 RB in the NFL = All Pro E-L-I-T-E !!! These numbers don’t lie:

    * Rushing yards per game: 89.0 (4th-best in NFL)
    * Total scrimmage yards: 1,664 (5th-best in NFL)
    * Scrimmage yards per game: 128.0 (2nd-best in NFL)
    * Yards per carry: 5.2 (3rd-best in NFL, minimum 130 carries and minimum 10.0 carries per game)
    * Total TDs: 10 (9th-best in NFL)
    * 100-yard rushing games: 6 (5th-best in NFL)
    * 20-plus-yard carries: 14 (1st in NFL)
    * 40-plus-yard carries: 4 (2nd-best in NFL)
    * Receiving yards by a RB: 507 (6th-best in NFL)
    * Receiving yards per game by a RB: 39.0 (2nd-best in NFL)

    * How consistent was McFadden when he was healthy? Well, out of 13 games played, he rushed for less than 89 yards only 4 times. By comparison, Peyton Hillis of the Browns played in 16 games, rushed for 20 more yards on the season than DMAC (1,177 to 1,157), but he had 9 games in which he failed to rush for at least 60 yards. More of a bruising-style runner, definitely more proven than Bush, media darling for the Pro Bowl, not as productive or consistent as DMAC.

    * DMAC was the only NFL RB to record 4 TDs in a single game in 2010, earning him AFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 7. And his 3-TD outburst in Jacksonville made him one of only three players since 1950 to have two rushing TDs of at least 35 yards and one receiving TD of at least 60 yards in a single game.

    * DMAC’s 1st-down rushing percentage was a respectable 20.2% (18th in the NFL), but when you factor in the field-position changing explosion runs (he led the league in 20-yard-plus and 30-yard-plus runs, and was second in 40-yard-plus runs) — he was an undeniable force who flip-flopped field position more than any other RB in the NFL.

    * Fumbles? 3 (this was 20th in the NFL, tied with a bunch of other RBs; solid for a guy who admittedly put the ball on the ground at a high rate in his first two seasons).

    WE’VE GOT BUSH: Prior to the season finale in KC, Michael Bush’s two longest plays from scrimmage — a 50-plus-yard reception against Seattle and a 24-yard run at San Diego — were both fluke, busted plays where he was in the right place at the right time. The big reception against the ‘Hawks was a thrice-defelcted pass that wound up in his hands, and the 24-yard run against the Chargers was after JC pitched the ball to him in the flat after a pass play broke down. Good for him being opportunistic and in the right place at the right time, but his two best plays thru 15 games were busted flukes.

    Fast-forward to KC in Week 17, and he had three rushing plays of 20-plus yards. But I was there, and he did not get touched one time on any of those three plays. Hey, he had a heckuva game, but Oakland dominated that d-linre all day and DMAC goes for 200 with those 23 or 25 carries and 3 scores on that day. Bush did have a couple of really nice catches out of the backfield that day, and those stood out more to me than the runs he had.

    SUMMARY: Giving Bush the same attempts or even half as much as DMAC is like suggesting Gerhart should get the same or half of AP’s workload, or someting ridiculous along those lines.

    Facts are stubborn things, and you can’t just wish them away or draw conclusions that run contrary without being held to serious ridicule.

    Jackson Fired in Oakland”
    (A.P)-

    In an unprecedented move, the Oakland Raiders today fired their Head Coach Hue Jackson.

    This is the shortest tenure of any Raider head coach, and the second shortest in league history. The Raiders also hold that distinction after Manager of the General Partner Al Davis fired HC Vern “Cramp” Gerstherfer after the 2002 season. Gersthefer, an insurance salesman, not only had no HC experience at any level in organized sports, but reportedly had no personal interest in sports altogether. “Crampy”‘ as he was known to friends, earned the nickname for his distinctive whining whenever called upon to participate in any physical activity beyond going back and forth to the bathroom, was the Raider HC for a mere 5 minutes beifre being releived of his duties.

    He was subsequently sued by Al Davis for the entire cost of the “Happy Meal” he had consumed during his tenure as the Raider field chief.

    After spending nearly $ 300,000 on legal expenses as part of the lengthy litigation process, Mr. Davis dropped the suit, citing his kind affection for insurance agents. ‘let bygones be bygones I always say’ quipped Mr. Davis at the end of the process. ‘I’m just glad it’s finally over” said “Crampy” who then was able to get on with the business of selling illegal insurance policies.
    ======================================
    Idiotic as hell. Find new material,or at least make the story shorter. Jesus f$%King Christ.
