Just received this link from the Raiders and wanted to make sure you got a chance to check it out in advance of its widespread release. Make sure you don’t “skip the intro.”

    J hill LOL WOW man Nnamdi role is GONE son, it left with Nnamdi. It’ll go back to a more even flow of QB’s attacking the entire secondary although Routt is damn good much better than fans think he is the other guy needs to be for him what he was for Nnamdi then we might have something.

    Jhill’s position is more right than wrong. Again, the Raiders scheme does not need elite Corners to be serviceable.

    This defense is based on getting to the QB….if the Front 7 doesn’t do that..the defense will get smacked up again.

    Stopping the run is paramount….force the opponent into obvious down and distance situations

    Raiders defense does not need an elite CB…just average serviceable guys…..which is why Al spending all those 1st and 2nd round picks on safeties and corners was not the right strategy

  • Just Win Baby

    I spent a lot of time bagging on Routt in the past, most of which was deserved. But last year the dude covered the best recievers that teams had to throw at him because everyone was avoiding Aso. Covering the #1 guy every play and knowing that the play was coming his way was a trial by fire and I think he came through it pretty well. I’ve heard people say that we were the #2 pass defense last year and if nobody was throwing at Aso, then somebody did a pretty damn good job against all the best recievers in the NFL. I think we should worry less about Routt and worry more about who will be on the other side because I think some other teams are going to start to avoid Routt’s side of the field. I have been his biggest critic because, for a few years there, he was terrible. But I support the guy in his new role as our #1 CB now and I think he will do just fine.

    Gaither signing official. Raider team doctors determined that Gaither is 8 months pregnant, but should be ready by the season opener unless he needs a c-section.

    So you really think Mike Brown and his staff are a better hire than Hue Jackson and company?

    WOW!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Read the article from ESPN about Favre. Didn’t see anything about him visiting Napa.
    Given Favre though, it wouldn’t even be suprising.

  • armond

    what makes me sick is that al davis said he had trades offered for aso and passed on them cuz aso said he wanted to stay. i wouldve said FU unless a long term deal was agreed upon. we could atleast have gotten something for him instead of just walking. dont know why davis didnt do that. just like he refused to take the money back when walker offered it to him. the guy wanted to retire after a jacked up offseason and al davis talked him out of it. these are the issues i have with davis.

    “1) Never trust a cop in a raincoat.
    2) Beware of enthusiasm and of love, both are temporary and quick to sway.
    3) If asked if you care about the world’s problems, look deep into the eyes of he who asks, he will never ask you again.
    4) Never give your real name.
    5) If ever asked to look at yourself, don’t look.
    6) Never do anything the person standing in front of you can’t understand.
    7) Never create anything, it will be misinterpreted, it will chain you and follow you for the rest of your life.”

    Kobe says his knee feels better than it has in years and after Fish played with Kobe in the Phillipines recently Fish concurs. Speaking of injuries,our medics better examine Gaither and ZMiller well because no matter how much potential they have we don’t need another Javon Walker situation

    @Jerrymcd
    Zach Miller situation still a mystery. Nothing leaking about other teams. Do Raiders have him locked up? Teammate says he’s not so sure!

    Exactly! Why not get players for him while you can.
    Al failed to do that.

  • armond

    and aso is a biotch. guys have the right to leave but dont give me that i wanna stay sh!t and bounce. just try to work somethin out so u can leave but dont front.
    how the hell do u not trade a guy who has all the leverage if u couldnt sign him long term. and if davis didnt want him thats even more reason to trade him. just bad business. NE wasted no time tradin seymour tho it may have fugged them for a couple of years but they did get a 1rst rndr to help them now. why couldnt we do that?

    Dear AFC West, can we please not let the Oakland Raiders sweep the division like they did last season?

    Why would Jacksonville trade a draft pick for a receiver that has been a bust so far in his career?

    Well, for starters, the Jaguars don’t really have any noteworthy receivers on their roster right now. Darrius Heyward-Bey wouldn’t be considered an elite talent, but he is still young and could figure out the game and become a decent player.

    Jacksonville would most likely need to give up a mid-round pick, which if Heyward-Bey developed into a deep threat, could be considered a steal.

    Oakland would win in this scenario by picking up a draft pick to continue building their team. They already have a very young group of receivers, and losing Heyward-Bey most likely wouldn’t hurt too bad.

  • 89052RAIDER

    I would take a 7th for DHB

  • J Hill

    what makes me sick is that al davis said he had trades offered for aso and passed on them cuz aso said he wanted to stay.

    ——————————————————-

    EXACTLY !!!!!!!

    Jets offered their #1 pick last year, Al was going to take the deal, but Nnamdi said he wanted to be a Raider. Nnamdi confirmed this when he was ESPNs First Take with Skip.

    After seeing him on that show, I was like, heck, maybe he is coming back.

    Kinda phugged up how we’ll just end up with a 3rd instead of that #1.

  • inonewordraider

    I’d take Favre as a third stringer and if Campbell can’t play with that kind of pressure he won’t get us to the promised land anyways. ZMiller disappeared after the injury so what about Alge Crumpler, Todd Heap or Kevin Boss?

    There’s a fukin echoe in here.

  • priesttj

    Armond now that makes sense. I hate the fact that he left and we got zilch. That’s what I’m mad about. The contract he signed asked for minimal stats and he didn’t achieve them for whatever reason. I don’t think either side knew he wouldn’t but when it was up there wasn’t anything either side could do about it. It was unfortunate, but we have to move on what did what we had to do in the draft and got some good kids but we could’ve got a KING’S RANSOM for Nnamdi in a trade.

    NOW THAT SUCKS!!!

  • DKnight007

    As I said last week….ADIOS and FAREWELL to a great person, a great player, and a great Raiders….Nnamdi Asomougha!

    Thanks for being a pros pro and becoming a great talent as a Raider!

    Not getting anything in return for losing Nnamdi, is utterly STUPID!

    Paying Routt a little less than what Nnamdi ended up getting paid is STUPID also!

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    From Bucs Chat:

    would you trade for Darrius Heyward-Bey
    would u give up a fifth for him… we have good rec. but not a burner!!!

    they say he sorry in oakland and he can’t cathc idk bout that i think if he comes here we will feel comfortable becuz he wnt be asked to do so much.. with freeman’s arm he could be a huge weapon with spot duty.. he still young and our rec. coach and rec. core will make him feel comfortable…

  • 89052RAIDER

    Chaz is going to stay healthy and the front seven is going to do their job. Everything will be just fine if these thins happen. It as simple as that. Nnamdi or No NNamdi.

  • From the Bay 2 L.A. 2 Las Vegas

    He’s good for a decoy…thats it!

  • Kirk

    What about Gaither? Has anyone seen him play? I love the fact that we are looking for O linemen.

  • plataynegro

    I’ve been down on Routt a lot over the last few years, but any CB that faces that many throws at him is gonna give up TDs and have a few PIs. I am not saying he is a top 5 corner, but he has held his own on an island over the last year and a half. Don’t get me wrong, Nnamdi is the superior player, but if he faced 100 passes his direction a year he would give up TDs and have PIs also (He would have more than 4 Ints though too!)

  • plataynegro

    I normally don’t say much about how Al spends his money, but damn! If he was smarter with some of these ridiculous contracts we would be able to KEEP our guys that we develop. Nothing is worse than seeing a guy drafted here, develop over time, then bolt when he is ready to take a step to the next level!

    If you ask me, Lechler and SeaBass need to restructure, how much does a kicker and punter think they need. Especially if they want to play for a winner!
