Combine invites

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011 at 9:33 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Seven players from Cal and Stanford were invited to the NFL scouting combine at beginning Feb. 24 in Indianapolis.

The combine will go on as planned regardless of the status of the collective bargaining agreement.

Cal players who were invited were safety Chris Conte, defensive end Cameron Jordan and running back Shane Vereen. For Stanford, nose tackle Simone Fua, fullback Owen Marecic, defensive back Richard Sherman and wide receiver Ryan Whalen will attend.

The full list of invitations are at this link through the National Football Post.

I’m scheduled to attend the combine this year covering for both the Raiders and 49ers.

    “With Noll, Dan Rooney and his brother Art Jr. formed a threesome….”
    ————————-
    that focused on building through the draft. That approach remains. Offensive and defensive systems are not adopted and ripped up every few years, necessitating cyclical remakings of the roster.

    Actually, would probably be an 8mm.

    I don’t know how any so-called Raider Fan can sniker about winning Super Bowls.

    Why are you people so afraid of knowledge?

    Cults don’t want you to read the newspaper, or anything like that.

    I’m not. Just clownin’. Slow day.

    The Steelers are the class of the NFL and blah blah blah.

    I would love to see stability here. It was the key to our success last decade.

    See:

    2001 Rich Gannon (16)
    2000 Rich Gannon (16)

    and

    Jon Gruden

    11-5*
    10-6
    12-4
    8-8
    8-8

    *Bill Callahan coaching Gruden’s team.

    “So-Called”?

    Really, Kell?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Kell,

    wasn’t our last good HC/QB combo Art Shell & Aaron Brooks?

    you should be stoked about Hue Jackson & Jason Campbell!

  • LA to TheBay

    Hue Jack City® got this.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Art Shell previously had Vince Evans from 1989-1994 …

    whoop whoop!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Hue Jack City® got this

    ***

    Hue stole a line from JaMarcus?

  • RaiderRockstar

    speaking of JaWalrus …

    Winston Moss as HC would have made him a winner, right Kelly?

  • OG-RAIDERRR

    I hope Green Bay beats the Pittsburg Rapists. I can’t stand Hines Wards stupid smile or Big Bens horrible singing . F those B@stards…

    Two weeks ago, when Dan Rooney, now the United States ambassador to Ireland, returned to Pittsburgh for the A.F.C. championship game, he spoke to a handful of reporters about the N.F.L.’s labor strife. During that conversation he offered a bombshell of a quote that summed up the Steelers’ ability to take the long view of success.

    “I’d rather not have the money,” Rooney said about the proposed 18-game regular season.

    That comment snapped a few heads around the league, particularly among owners who would rather have the money. But Rooney wonders why it is necessary to change something — 16 games for 32 teams — that has worked successfully for years. It is a mind-set the Steelers have leaned on in the past: do not make sea-change decisions in haste.

    I like the idea of an 18 game regular season.

    Eliminate 2, or maybe even all, of the pre-season games and the players don’t wind up playing a longer season or taking more snaps.

    This would put an increased emphasis on in-house player evaluations and the ability of a coaching staff to more rapidly prepare for the regular season, but is easily doable.

    We’d get to see 2 more weeks of meaningful Raider/NFL action.

    Wish that the 2010 season was 2 weeks longer. Might have extended the agony of watching the Raids fall short of the playoffs…or maybe they would have emerged as AFC West champs.

    Either way, it would have been exciting to see.

    Bring on the 18 game regular season.

    JaJason sucks.

    the kid out of hampton is the best kept under the radar guy in the draft….raiders should take him in the 5th rd.
