Looks like Rayner will be kicking

Both the NFL Network and ESPN are reporting the Raiders are planning to sign Dave Rayner to kick against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rayner by far was the most experienced place kicker of the three who tried out Friday (Rhys Lloyd and Ricky Schmitt were the others) with Sebastian Janikowski ailing with a hamstring injury.

When the Raiders sign Rayner, they’ll need to waive, release or place a player on injured reserve to make room on the roster.

Janikowski wasn’t moving well Friday, and it makes sense to give him the week off and rehab through the bye week so he could possibly be ready to kick Nov. 6 when the Raiders host the Broncos.

    It’s a great day to be a Raiders fan. Isn’t it?!

    It’s funny how so many people in here whine about how often the refs blow calls…the FTuck Rule game…the schedule-makers screwing us, etc…but, don’t allow Al Davis to feel the same as they do about them.

    Big Al felt all of those things, more than any other person on earth…and, even when in miserable health, he continued to reload and come back to try and win. So, he made some mistakes. He knew when he did that, too. At least he never stopped trying. He’s given the team the talent to win again…at the very time a lot of the past 10-years’ power teams are starting to lose some of their mojo.

    As in life, many things are cyclical, including in the NFL. Even with a few of the mistakes Al the GM made, Al the Scout’s work was as good as anybody’s in the League, right up to his passing. Very impressive stuff, if thought about objectively. That he did it while running an organization HE built from the bottom-up, was pretty remarkable.

    I’ve always said…if it were MY team, I’d do the same thing, right up until I couldn’t work at all. Could there be anything cooler than running the operations of an NFL franchise? No fockin’ way.

    Long live Al, and his legacy. Long live Mark…here’s hoping he can keep the team.

    You know how adults used to say to kids…

    “Be quiet when grown folks are talking!”

    Well if you just became a Raider fan in the Mid 80′s, you should be quiet when people who have been following this team since the 60′s and 70′s are trying to educate people on the true history and legacy of this team.

    Even tho sometimes I may disagree with certain things that he says…when BHP talks about the team from a Historical perspective, I shut up and listen, because he is talking about things that happened before I was even born.

    It’s called Respect, and some of these posters here need to learn it badly.

    It’s hard to look at this game with a neutral eye but I see the chefs keeping this one real close. The Jano injury pushes the fear even further…

  • DKnight007

    The team needs to get their heads right and get ready for a battle this weekend against a division team! This game is important to get a win before the bye week!

    They need to go balls out and bring it!

    The DEFENSE needs to step it the hell up again and they need to take Bowe out of the equation.

    We know Ford can beat any of their CB’s and lets see Moore get the ball and lets hope Boller uses Hagan as his important possesion guy along with Chaz. I would like to see some reverses and WR screens ran with DHB and Moore.

    The O-Line needs to get ready to dominate the Queefs weak DLine. We need to see Bush run lower with more power. Can’t be expected to rely on DMC each and every week.

    We need to see the return of our excellent screen game also by using all of our RB’s DMC, Bush and Jones!

    Put consistent pressure on Cassel from all sides.

    Both the offense and defense need to use motion to keep queefs D off balance, because they have been studying for two weeks and the defense needs to disguise coverages in the back end!

    Lets go RAIDER NATION, lets WIN this game before the bye week!!

  • Pretty Rick

    SharkCatcher,,did they put Carson Palmer back on the game because as of Thursday he was still off the roster, not on free agency either.

  • HayesDaze37

    It’s a shame Janikowski’s hurting. Guy is living up to his billing. Glad Al got to see that 63-yard FG, at least. Must’ve warmed his pirate heart like it did mine. Janikowski is the Raiders’ greatest kicker ever, and he’ll keep showing it for a few more years.

    ^^^^^^^^
    No doubt….this game will be close.

    We need the DEFENSE to create some turnovers and get a TD if they can and the special teams to step it up again!

    Huey and Saunders need to mix it up on offense to keep queefs off balance…that is why Boller needs to start, the whole damn play book can be used.

    With Casrson, the whole play book can’t be used!

    Losing someone playing as well as Jano is real tough. The guys all know it, and they’ll go for blood every time they can. Pick up whatever slack is there, and finish the game driving away.

    One more time, it’s BSPN and the NFL network that are reporting this move. And I bet it was Glazer who claims it. But. not any one of our Raiders insiders. Gotta do better than just reporting Janiko couldn’t move well JMac.

    The defense pledges to play stronger and more aggressive, one of my inside sources tells me. Holding the chefs down to a field goal.

    Shut down Dwayne Bowe, win this game. Break the Cassel-to-Bowe connection, and KC’s got nothing to carry the team.

    They need to blitz him up the middle and around the back blind side and get to him and force him to fumble or throw INT’s!!

    BHP says he did…and I can’t say he didn’t. But, he’s correct in saying that back in the day, The Black Hole was the entire coliseum, and not just down in the south endzone.

    Much like when we started calling Raider Nation Raider Nation…the term just sort of took off. I was just happy being an old-skool Raiders fan. I was part of The Nation before it was called a Nation. And, I was in The Black Hole when it was born, and before it had such a name. Don’t know who really coined the names (even I might have done it, at a drunken tailgate party! But, I didn’t).
