Jackson officially not ruling McFadden out

For what it’s worth, Raiders coach Hue Jackson told the San Diego media by conference call he wasn’t ruling Darren McFadden out of the Chargers game Thursday night.

An NFL Network headline said McFadden was out against the Chargers, the story below it said he was “expected” to be out.

Considering McFadden wasn’t on the field Monday and has made himself scarce since being spotted on crutches last week, it would be a big surprise were he to play against San Diego.

The Raiders media window to practice begins at 3:15 p.m.

    Shaun Phillips still in a walking boot. More than likely he is out for Thursday.

  • LA to TheBay

    Phillip going to challeng our DBs with a ton of jump balls and sideline stuff.

    Think LBs and MM34 will be up to task of limiing Gates though.

    Gotta plant Rivers. We’ve roughed up QBs pretty good last 3 weeks but not enough sacks to show for it.

    Already been declared out.

    McLain better play on thursday

  • Just Fire Baby

    More personal fouls than any team last year and only halfway through our year.

    I guess the refs didn’t get the memo that we were “trying” to build a bully here.

  • DeuceDeuce

    I think Huff is out. Which means more Giordano. Yipee. Were screwed.

    LA To TheBay I just listened to that segment.

    Another NFL expert in awe of Palmer’s arm strength and accuracy.

    I think a few more weeks in our system people will finally start to see why Hue brought him here.
    ———————————–

    Seriously, I was at the game. The guy threw 2 TD passes that Campbell never threw in his life! Palmer is still at top 10 QB! That’s one problem solved. The defense is what’s holding us back from being an elite team!

    =============================================

    Anyone who would criticize Palmer in ANY WAY after 1.5 games here is a dummass. Palmer did a great job, reading the defense, he was given the authority to check out of plays which he did repeatedly, always to the right call. He is BY FAR the best Q we have had here in decades. The picks were the result of him giving his guys opportunities to make plays. Our guys didn’t make the play, their guys did make the play. That, right there, is the difference between winning and losing.

    Richard Seymour has become a joke for this organization and should be ashamed of himself.

    He has more penalty yards in personal fouls than he has yards lost for sacks.

    He gives out first downs like hookers give out BJs.

    His undisciplined play and lack of leadership will never live up to the value of the 1st round pick Oakland surrendered to get him.

    I am sick of the lack of veteran leadership on this team. No heart and no pride.
    ———————————–
    All I can add is as I was leaving Sunday, I would have liked to spit in his face. I’m sick of his sorry act!

    I don’t get all of the backlash. Some say “Hue is drunk with power”. How is getting players that will help the team being drunk with Power? Who the heck else was going to make moves for the Raiders when Cambell went down? (I like Cambell, but if he knew how to freakin slide, we wouldn’t have to look for a QB in the first place.)Who else in the front office was going to do anything? We got Palmer (great move IMO) who the heck else was there? He looked at Gerrard (hurt) maybe Vince, Carson was the only one available and unfortunately in a bad predicament. We trade a first and a second. Big freakin deal! How many First round picks are currently on the squad now?? He did not squander the future of the team, the future of the team is already ON the team, if you can understand what Hue is talking about when he said the time is NOW.
    Some say he has an ego. Really? Being confident in the players that you coach is being arrogant? I would play for a coach that was confident in his players any day!
    Some say too much camera time. Really? WTH is he supposed to do, get on a conference call? Send an e-mail? Tweet? Facebook? He is supposed to do media time. Personally I never known another time wihin the last decade have the Raiders had as much media attention, it’s good people! Of course we have to win in the process!
    Calling Hue an idiot, over his head and the such is not carefully evaluating the WHOLE situation.
    4-2 before injuries (everyone was happy jumping for joy)
    0-2 afterwards (the whole world is now ending and Hue sucks), after he lost his STARTING QB who the offense was built around. We have not had a successful and consistently producing offense in YEARS, unlike the Patriots who could put a backup in (Cassel) and succeed after the starting QB went down. We had Boller, and we saw what happened, would you rather have that than CP3?? New QB, different skills means your offense WILL change, especially with DMC out of the picture, this takes time to do. Despite the 3 picks, he looked good, especially his arm strength (elbow) and being able to take a hit below (knee). Those were my concerns, he’ll be alright…

    Hue the blame for this loss? Only if he get’s credit for the wins as well! That loss to the Broncos was pitiful and embarrassing, however all the D had to do was contain Tebow that’s it and FAILED drastically the D and only the D is at fault! First place is not a bad place to be in! I thouht this was the freakin RAIDER NATION! LEt’s not be like the media wants us to be and start turning on the team, there is plenty of season left and if the D can play decent ball we will be in the playoffs!

    What’s good mamba ?

  • raiderfankirk

    NFLN Seymour in a minute.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Was I fooled by hue jack? I thought he was a raider but he is obsessed with bungles rejects & sloppy seconds. How can a coach lean on a certain group of players a’s his leaders then suddenly mid season change direction & kick the to the curb? What a out their sacrifice that made us winners. What about the locker room they helped clean up & build? What about the coaches word, if he sected them then dumped them in the middle of the night for some cast off out of towers from a loser team, can he be trusted by the players?

    Looks like hu jack pulled a Tom cable, I’m disappointed
