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.

    Jones is freaking injury prone too

    ———–

    Yep. Making a whole lot less money than DMac, though.

    It’s a shame Al isn’t still alive, he’d be on the Bears’ sideline talking to Forte about how good he’d look in Silver and Black.

  • mcfadden20.

    Your right young American … But either way .. We will b good with McFadden or bush in the near future can’t imagine him hurting his god damn foot every year ..

  • mcfadden20.

    What we really need next year is a mammoth DT and a 3-4 D coordinator ..

  • raiderinparadise

    Rod Woodson is not that green to coaching. Just watch how Giordano and Branch are playing …. and the carousel at Corners, nickel and dime. Chewka came in and balled hard imo. Did DVD improve since pre-season? Ya, i think so. 1000% improved.

    He is a players coach, that understand fundamentals allow players to make plays.

    Rod is semi-bashful guy … but he is the ultimate professional. Maybe not next year but he will warrant some consideration in time, i know that.

    We need to go 4-2 during that stretch.

  • mcfadden20.

    It’s not as tough .. If our D can play every god damn game like it’s superbowl

  • raiderinparadise

    @#307

    good point, but teams are dropping like flies all over.

    Remember the raiders are the most physical team in the league.

    we can pull it off, long as our run game keeps up and we can force turnovers.

  • mcfadden20.

    So we’ll go to Miami next week n play them after they had 10 days off ? Wtf

  • mcfadden20.

    It’s all good .. Miami is going to get taste of code black pretty soon

  • inonewordraider

    what time’s practice today? interesting to see if Moore or Moss participate…

  • mcfadden20.

    What’s good Raider Nation??

  • joetoronto

    If Palmer, Veldheer or Bush go down, we’re done like dinner.

  • mcfadden20.

    Every body is injured on Raiders

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    Happy Belated Thanksgiving Nation….So is it still looking like Murphy and Schilens are the starting wideouts this week?

  • joetoronto

    Yup

  • Hagar the Horrible

    Hey, guys, for those of you who haven’t heard, the following is funny in a way.

    Josh McCown worked out with the Bears for the first time, hours after agreeing to a one-year contract as a backup quarterback following last Sunday’s injury to starter Jay Cutler. Hope I’m not posting old news, just read it in this morning’s newspaper.

    The old Josh. He was kind of for shzt when he was with us, I can’t see him being any better now. Funny if Hanie gets hurt and the Bears have to go with backup Josh. Now that would be funny!

  • VanHeathen

    Morning Nation…
    Man this list of injuries has got me down,
    hard to be optomistic right now with so many of our weapons on the shelf…
    Come Sunday i’ll be in my seats yelling like crazy…
    Just hope the boys are ready to rumble…

    I think I just pulled a hammy reading this!

  • raiderinparadise

    bears are 30th against the pass in the league. We will be fine offesnively, it will come down to getting stops and turnovers on D.

    I think Moore will play.

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    This is the game that decides if Murphy is on the team or not next year….He’s disappointed the Nation this season tremendously with his short-arming, drops, flag crying while the ball is still in play, and his lame attempt at being a gunner….I’m sure he knows this though; and hopefully he’ll make up for it with a solid start

  • VanHeathen

    Murphy is stil on the team???
    Just kidding, but yeah, it would be great to see him find his old self this weekend…
    Just hasn’t been the same guy this year, hoping it’s the injury cause i love the kids energy, attitude and skills when he’s been on…
    Just haven’t seen much of ‘THAT’ Murphy yet this season…Sunday would be a great time to re appear!

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    ….how great is it gonna be to see a 9 catch 120+ yd performance from Chaz?!…. you heard it here first!

  • raiderinparadise

    Agreed I have always backed Chaz … this will be his time. He is too big and fast and has gr8 hands …. he will do fine when his # is called.

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    lets just hope Chaz doesn’t get hurt in the pre-game warmups…Lol

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

    It cannot be understated how important these next two games are. IMO we need be be 8-4 going into GB and we’ll be aaight. But if we loose even one, you go in at 7-5, all of a sudden you lose to GB and you’re at
    7-6, then you got DET Lions coming to town and you’re 7-6 and who knows how KC, SD and Denver might be doing at that time. Hell Denver might be in first place by then and controlling their own destiny. This is why sunday is a MUST WIN, then the following week @ MIA is also a must win. This gonna be a fun ride and I hope the wheels do not fall off.

  • JR77

    * I mean overstated, understated, whatever

  • JR77

    speaking of fun ride, i love this video:

  • raiderinparadise

    True, the division is not even close “ours”
    CHI-town … needs to go down in o.co sunday.

    Its likely that denver beats SD and if/when they do they will be in 1st place if we lose.

    Therefore, this becomes the biggest game of year at this junction in the season.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    Sign Moss!!!

    kidding.

    Moore working on side with trainer; no McFadden; Ford and Jones out here just watching

  • inonewordraider

    If DHB goes it’s huge for us. The guy will be doubles if Moore is out leaving Chaz Housh and hopefully Murph to do some damage

  • raiderinparadise

    ok so DHb will play … but he will be skiddish just like murphy.

    Moore might give it a go, play decoy on 3rd and longs?

    Hope the Raider players understand this better than anyone. Along with game plan preparation the coaching staff needs to enforce that idea that the team has won some games, but has not actually achieved anything at this point.

    Actually Housh just playing role of Hester on scout team punt return; McCann would likely handle PR duties

    Palmer needs to get Boss the ball along with Reese to pick up the passing game. I don’t think Carson trust DHB to catch the ball consistently.

  • raiderinparadise

    that makes sense since Housh is very similar to hester

    lol

  • inonewordraider

    if DHB and or Moore play which sounds very possible we aren’t so hurt after all. Biggest worry is Bush getting spent. Bears with Hanie at qb have much bigger injury concerns at this point game is a MUST win

    That was a hell of a whiff he had on the sideline in Minn. His hand were whack.
    Made a nice hands grab on the play he got hurt.

    Bears might try and do what Ponder did to us and run when its there.

  • fingers

    Von Miller fined 25,000 for his helme hit to the back of Sanchez..
    What took them so long … And I can’t believe he didn’t get a roughing flag at the time….

  • raiderinparadise

    Yes hanie will run here and there. for sure. but he also will get stripped a couple times running.

  • Hagar the Horrible

    RaiderinParadise…post 332:

    Ya, this is a must win game for all the reasons mentioned. Additionally, because we loss the last two games at home, which is unacceptable, and it’s a glaring statement to us … “saying:” If you can’t win at home you can’t make the playoffs and you can’t go deep into the promise land.

    If we’re a real contender, we must win at home and we must be able to string 3 and 4 wins together. Sunday would be win three in a row and next week the Dolphins are doable, giving us 4 wins in a row.

    Then, if our key injured players are back for Greenbay, we can complete with them. We can complete with anyone in this league when we’re complete, especially with Palmer at the controls. The promise land is obtainable, yes it is, yes it is!

  • fingers

    I expect Hanie to do some running Sunday …Hue has to have the defense prepared for that..
