HueJax checks out kickers, no QB yet

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, October 21st, 2011 at 2:37 pm in Oakland Raiders.

A little behind subbing for Steve . . . more later . .

While there was determination Friday on whether Carson Palmer would start for the Raiders at quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs, coach Hue Jackson had another dilemma on his hands _ the status of place kicker Sebastian Janikowski.

The Raiders had three kickers in at the close of practice for tryouts. Although there was no confirmation from the team, they were Rhys Lloyd, Ricky Schmitt and Dave Rayner.

Janikowski was moving stiffly during the early portion of practice, loading footballs into a JUGS gun to give return specialists a workout. He was officially listed as questionable with a left hamstring strain.

“It’s a huge part of our football team if he can’t go,’’ Jackson said. “I’m not going ot make any excuses. If he can’t go, he can’t go. We’ll get somebody that can. That’s the way it goes. We’ll be fine.’’

Janikowski is 12-for-13 on field goal attempts and 5-for-6 from 50 yards and beyond, with his lone miss this season coming from 56 yards. He tied the NFL record with a 63-yard field goal in Week 1.

Meanwhile, Kyle Boller opened practice as the starting quarterback for the third straight day. Jackson has never wavered from his stance of not making a decision until he has all the relevant information.

ESPN originally reported Palmer was expected to start, but reversed its field Friday and reported Palmer was unlikely to play.

“I’ll make the right decision as we draw closer to the game,’’ Jackson said. “I’m not in a rush. I’m gion got watch this team, watch the practice tape, sit down, meet with my staff, talk to upper management, Amy Trask and Mark Davis and make the right decision.’’

Palmer was available for a short time before heading to a meeting.

“I’m getting prepared. I’m getting as prepared as I can,’’ Palmer said. “I’m excited about the opportunity (to be) just around the field, let alone get a chance to play.’’

Whatever decision Jackson makes, the end result will be before a local television audience. The Raiders announced a sellout, meaning all four regular-season games will be televised.

    I am resigned to a possible loss to KC. We are “nicked” a bit and after two emotional wins we might have a let down. But that doesn’t mean we won’t win the division.
    After the bye, I can see us coming together and playing championship caliber football.

    Saying that here is more blitzing because Al David is dead is classless. Made me uneasy reading it.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    True dat.

    And Al wasn’t necessarily wrong anyway.
    You keep blitzing and you are going to get burned eventually.

    Boller has to do his job. Carry the team until the starter is ready.

    I would have been shocked to see Palmer start Sunday despite all the hype.

    The loss of Janikowski worries me more than Boller. Janikowski kept the Raiders in that Houston game.

    Just hope the defense can shut KC down and 14-17 points will be all that’s needed for the win.

    Reporter: you said this trade was the best in the NFL. So what’s the second best trade in the NFL?

    HuJak: I’ll let you know when I make it..

    :::::::::::

    Lyle Alzado was a better trade! Lyle was 33 when he joined da Raidahs but Alzado still had enough Pis$ and Vinegar left to kick A$$ for four seasons with the Raiders, including the team that won Super Bowl XVIII in 1984.
    ======================
    Realist Raccoon, its called a joke. Mark Purdy (a tool, btw) was trying to run some clever talk, and HueJack nailed him … great stuff, dont ruin it….that was a classic exchange. And uh..Alzado died in misery and pain…he kick’d ass but he paid an unspeakable.

    Bresh says that more blitzing after death of Davis is not true. Injuries and abbreviated offseason limited him in what he could call earlier in the year.

    Speaking of those teams of the 70′s… The great thing about the first Lombardi was that we were SO CLOSE so many times before, and we finally won.

    Dominated in the regular season, played in countless AFL/AFC playoff and title games against some of the greatest teams ever, came up just short every time.

    When we finally got to the Super Bowl again, there was no doubt who was going to win.

    The first one was the best one.

    Propaganda

    ——

    Yup, Steve wasn’t joking when he said sh;t was changing.

    I think Hue and Co. have the best interests of the Raiders in mind and will do what it takes to win.

    We still have a rocket arm QB, the fastest skill players in the game and a rowdy, fast defense that likes to run and hit.

    Al Davis may have been infirm at the end but he was never in his entire life backward and he certainly hadn’t lost his intellect at the end.

  • Twocents

    Read somewhere that a former associate felt that Hue was a bit “self-serving”. Not a fatal flaw if he can deliver the goods.

    It’s looking like the obvious. Start Boller, then if (when) he sucks, put Palmer in there

    I’m sorry if I have offended you “RaiderChaos” (pretty lame moniker), but if you are writing a blog about the Oakland Raiders, you probably should know how to spell the names of the players.

    LA to the BAy,

    I hear you man on youtube and hulu. I think I saw all the hilites avail by nfl.com as well. BUT it’s not the same as feeling the vibe. The vibe was great during the Gruden yrs and I can sense that vibe again now with Palmer. Right now, we dont really have a villain to hate. Imagine being in the middle of the Pittsburg fight during those years.

    My first NFL game was watching the Raiders vs Skins in the SB. Had no clue but I did see Marcus run and loved that logo. My cousin was like those Raiders look so small against the Skins. Been an underdog ever since.

  • joker94583

    Boller will start, Palmer isn’t ready. KC then a bye it makes little sense to rush Palmer out there. Remember too that Boller is taking all the first team snaps. Boller isn’t a rookie. He should have success against KC.
