Terrelle Pryor, Lito Sheppard both practicing with Raiders today

This news in from Steve Corkran, who is in Napa with no internet access right now:

Terrelle Pryor is wearing No. 6 and taking some reps at quarterback now for the Raiders. Also, just-signed Lito Sheppard is also participating in drills. Sheppard is donning Nnamdi Asomugha’s old No. 21 jersey.

To make room for both Pryor and Sheppard on the roster, the Raiders have released ex-San Jose State quarterback Jason La Secla as well as offensive lineman Alan Pelc.

    I think dvd will be fine tackling at the line of scrimmage, but he seems to struggle in the open field a bit. However as was just pointed out you dont have to be a big tackler at db, just adequate. If tackling is the biggest issue you have with a corner i would say your going to be fine.

    DVD will be a star for us in time….namdi who?

    deion didn’t rack up the tackles. He def needs to bulk up though

    LOL! I told her no-go, cause they leave indentations in the seat!

    I compromised and put some towels down first. Took a while though.

    what do you guys think about Jerry Richardson dictating Cam Newton’s appearance? Should an NFL owner be able to tell a player about what tats, piercings, and haircuts they can or can’t sport?

  • lefty12

    It amazes me the amount of energy directed toward Lance.He is gone(good riddance),who cares about the twerp.We have other things we should be concerned about.

  • Plunketthead

    Right on Red!

    Watch TP roll it up and down the field against third stringers. I bet he can do it and look impressive. He will have lots of weapons and I am sure Hue will tell him to run when he feels like it.

    At OS he was told to stay in the pocket as much as possible. So he has actually been working on on a pro style offense and looking great at times.

    I hope he is everything we wanted out of syruphead and more

  • J Hill

    Don’t get the starting OL.

    Heyer has been the best LG in games so far.

    If Wiz can’t beat out Satele, he should be the #2 C.

    JFB says Heyer looked like trash at OT yet he could have started there?

    Barksdale and Barnes should be fighting for the RT spot. May the best man win.

    Carlisle and Beast should be fighting for the RG spot. May the best man win.

    Satele vs. Wiz for the starting C spot. May the best man win.

    Heyer vs Loper for LG. May the best man win.

    It’s not that damn hard, Hue!

  • Just Fire Baby

    I think Jerry Richardson has a right to say what he wants. In actuality, he was only trying to help Cam get more advertising money down the road.

    But I think he should have maybe divulged more into the tattoo thing.

    There is a difference from getting a chest tattoo over your heart dedicated to your grandma, and getting East Side tattoo’d on your neck.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    I dont like our line. loper-satele-carlisle-barnes.

    This means no push in short yardge especilaly, and piss poor pass protection.

    pass protection will be an even bigger issue this year, because we now have skill guys at wr position ready to blossom. This includes DHB ford and moore. These guys need the ball and JC has been putting it on the money down the field ( so much for that captain check down garbage).

    With out good protection our qb will get knocked out, and or we wont be able to utilize our speed in the passing game.

    The 76 yards FG was Lechler’s fault??? What a biotch. Everything is always everyone else’s fault with that guy. YOU are the freakin Head Coach then Coach the team. Dont say I couldnt win because Al watches Video at night. Just makes no sense. I get sick of his excuses. You either won or you didnt.

    I hope we keep CJ, Routt, Moore, DVD & Ware. Chewy should probably stay as he can play both.
    McFadden deserves to go. I really hope we keep Sterling Moore. He was the only bright spot amongst the rookies & 2nd year CBs except for Ware.

    Lefty we are just responding to Lames latest spoiled brat comments

  • mizza

    I completely agree with those of you talking about how explosive this offense can be. Ford, McFadden, Bush, Boss, Moore (if the hype turns out to be true). That’s a lot of weapons. The way i see it, there are three huge question marks that will determine whether we are a 10-12 win team.

    1. Will the offensive line jell and play at an average level. They don’t need to be great, but they do need to be better then last year. Make sure you give Campbell time, and open up some room for rb’s.

    2. Will Jason Campbell improve upon last year. In my opinion, he was a below average starter last year (still think he was better then grads). But he’s now been in the system for a year. More comfortable, hopefully more confident. If he can play at an average or above average level, this offense can soar.

    3. Run defense. Plain and simple. We don’t have to dominate. But we do need to stop other teams from running down our throats. Crap like what happened in sf yesterday will sink our season.

    The best we can hope for from Jason is to have a C+ year and stay healthy. I hope he looks like a above average QB Sunday night on National TV.

    Can’t upgrade from Rob Ryan to Monte Kiffin?
    Saddle me with Jamarcus after I interviewed him and had no doubt he’d suck?
    Commitment to what?

    Ok then, here you go Al. Here’s your prized #1 draft pick.

    The whole Jerry Richardson-No Tattoos story is a non-issue. Newton and his agent are more interested in securing sponsors than about getting body art.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I think the only battle should be at LG.

    The plan should be to rotate Campbell at RG here and there, and maybe a little more accelerated for Barksdale at RT. But they should get some run with the 1′s on Sunday, to be prepared if they are needed earlier.

    Hue isn’t stupid though, he needs veterans prepared and playing well, heading into weeks 3 and 4 (Jets-Pats).

  • alex7

    Jason’s best season ever has been about a C+, so I think Plunketthead makes sense.

    No reason to think a guy suddenly makes the jump 6 starting years into his career. Gannon was in year 5, Steve Young year 4. Just doesn’t happen much.

    Raiders Trade Michael Bush to Seattle for 6th Round draft pick
    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 26, 2011, 3:35 PM EDT

    In a move that has us scratching our heads (and because it’s the Raiders, we can’t be surprised), Oakland has sent 4th year running back Michael Bush to the Seahawks for a 6th roud draft pick in 2012 per Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

    Bush has been a backup for Darren McFadden and Justin Fargas the last three seasons and is generally regarded amongst league sources as a starting caliber back and squandered his first few years in the Black Hole.

    It appears Al Davis will rely heavily on rookie Taiwan Jones to shoulder the responsibility of primary backup to Run DMC.

    With his forty yard dash time, THAT is no surprise.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Davis The Realist Dirty Raccoon

    Just like we shoulda done with Miller, Nnamdi, and Gallery.

  • Plunketthead

    If Jason grades a B that means he needs to be in the top ten, maybe twelve QB’s in the league.

    In order for Jason to be a top ten QB, he needs to put the team on his back and win a few games when the rest of the team is pl;aying down. He could not do that last year, or the year befpre or the year before.

    He has always been a C-
