Raiders game sold out _ sixth in a row


The Raiders game will be on local television for the sixth consectutive game, with the club announcing a sellout Thursday.

Status quo on injury front, according to coach Hue Jackson. Expecting it will be much like Minnesota, utlizing Richard Seymour on third downs if he’s good to go.

Area of most concern is wide receiver, although Darrius Heyward-Bey, in Jackson’s words, “ran around” during practice. Jacoby Ford is out of his protective boot, but hasn’t practice. Denarius Moore was a spectator Thursday as well with a foot injury.

T.J. Housmandzadeh returned to practice the day after his wife had a baby, giving the Raiders another body at practice to go along with Chaz Schiens, Louis Muprhy and practice squad player Eddie McGee.

Have a happy Thanksgiving.

    @hagar the horrible


    The team playing this sunday is not the same team that we could have in the playoffs or even in 2 weeks.

    with that being said we have to win this game, ugly or not just win and get guys healthy.

    To cut the head off the bears you just have to take away forte. he is the main focus.

    Silverback… Your right… Their was no flag on that play…. Should have been.

  • Silverandblack666

    Injuries have hurt us more than any other team I tried to put together a list:

    First we lost Hirum Eugene with a broken hip in preseason.

    Also Travis Gothel same thing lost in preseason which is why we had to sign Curry because Groves was not getting the job done.

    MLB McClian has been playing hurt so has Richard Seymour who is missing practice and game time now.

    We lost Matt Shaughnessy for the season, Chris Johnson has been hurt all year only played in two games all season.

    Huff has been playing with a hurt foot and Mike Mitchell was hurt at the beginning of the season and now appears to finally be healthy.

    McFadden and his speedy backup Taiwan Jones are out. Both FB’s have been hurt and missed time (Rece and Tonga).

    The WR where to start?

    DHB hurt, Murphy missed the first 8 games, now Denarius Moore is in a boot? Schillings is always hurt.

    Boss was hurt to start the season.

    Satele has missed time due to concussions.

    Our two rookie CB’s that had to play because of other guys getting hurt are both injured (Chimdi Chekwa and Demarcus Van Dyke) with Chimdi moving to IR last week.

    We lost Jason Campbell, Bruce Campbell was hurt in camp

    I seriously doubt any other NFL team has a laundry list this long!

    Did I leave anyone out?

    My opinion is the league has gone flag happy…. Everyother play seems to be a penalty now….it’s getting hard to watch with so many flags..

    Yeah, dont forget about Seabass, even he got hurt and he never gets hurt…still though, make no excuses for them, 6-4, winnable division, next man up

    Darren is the best running back on the Raiders. He’s on everyone’s board as a top 5 running back in this league, except yours.

    Not to mention, Darren’s the best athlete on the team.

    If you didn’t re-sign him it will be a decision the Raiders organization would rue for years.

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

    Accept offers for DMC during the off-season?? Not without signing MBush29 to an extension before the end of the year.

    Find the $$ figure to get it done…making MBush somewhere around the 10-15th highest paid RB in the league. He’s playing at a level to deserve it, and he’ll get it from some other team. Give him a much-deserved extension, and hope we don’t grind him into the ground.

    DMC needs to get back…and the Raiders need to win with the best RB duo the NFL has seen in years. MBush’s and DMC’s careers can benefit from the other guy’s…and we fans can enjoy the ride while it lasts.

    BUT…if MBush is signed longer-term, and some team came along with an offer of the above-mentioned #2 and #3-round picks for DMC?? Especially if the picks are in the early stages of those rounds, it’s a deal that must be considered, if not jumped at.

    I used to watch the mind-boggling Bo Jackson play back in the day. He was going to be the greatest…right up until he wasn’t on the field anymore. DMC is special, when he’s on the field. On the sideline, he’s just another nice guy.

  • VanHeathen

    Randy didn’t even play when he was on the team…
    what a quitter, DESPISE that Punk,
    the league is better off without him…
    Hope he’s still roling in that RIDICULOUS Purple truck he was driving when he got to Oakland…

  • RaiderSean


    I’ve noticed a pattern, not just with your post comparing DMC to other running back, a lot of other peeps as well.

    Stop comparing Darren to Bo or to anyone else. Darren Mcfadden is his own man and should be compared only to Darren Mcfadden

    Hue Jackson: “Darren Mcfadden is the best player on this team, I know that.”

    If you think Hue would think of trading Darren, you are erroneously misinformed and out of touch with the pulse of Hue’s plan.
