Raiders practice: Same as it ever was

Subbing for Steve Corkran today . . .

Media window has closed for today with no changes in the status of Raiders players. Michael Huff and Jacoby Ford are on the field and should be good to go against San Diego.

Huff should resume his role as starter, and Ford ought to be available in some for at receiver, although it’s doubtful he’ll return any kickoffs. Taiwan Jones is on the field as well, but given Hue Jackson’s comments Thursday about needing to see him “turn it loose,” his availability is up in the air.

No sign of defensive tackle John Henderson and running back Darren McFadden, who will be ruled “out” in a couple of hours when Jackson talks to the media post-practice.

One interesting sight _ CBS analyst and former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon in civil, friendly coversation with senior exec John Herrera. Herrera threatned to have Gannon banned from the facility a few years back, believing Gannon to be too harsh when assessing his former team.

Always seemed a little silly. Gannon’s critiques were always on-point and made in part because he was rightly frustrated at seeing what the Raiders had become.

    I think San Diego will be going after Michael bush hard after seeing how good he plays against them… hope he stays a Raider but s.d. has not been the same since they let LT go..

    Sweet win for the Purple & Gold last night, taking the “Slick out of the Knick” (patent pending on my new phrase).

    Getting Big Boi Bynum back tomorrow should make our moonwalk back to championship glory that much more swizznizzle fresh.

    Now put down your weiners and check out some more lyrics for my new Laker-inspired joint, which most likely will be available on my upcoming solo record Wrecks N Effect

    Bynum soon ballin like a homie should
    Steven Blake be sportin’ some serious wood (bc his wife is hot)
    Matt Barnes is straight up thuggin’
    Luke Walton doin some bbq sauce chuggin’ (owns a bbq restaurant, get it)

    The new GM/Personnel man should fire Herrera without a doubt.

    Michael Bush is gonna want that 1000 yrds … He’s gonna run over the Chokers ..Then Palmers gonna pick his spots …..

    I can’t believe my eyes, someone questioned the “master” of this blog.

    Some quick points and I Dell, am real excited for this weekend Raiders game, but must insist to interject some words of advice to my fellow bloggers on this site.

    To the first young man, who questions the ‘Master” rhyme, it was great!! To write the post(really comment) was wack azz , you are not in agreement, than comment why and no ‘master’ should not be banned, ever.

    Your next comment, we will not win a championship for awhile, please explain to me the word’awhile’ and does it mean this year or many years. So let me quote you correctly, ‘Get over it LA is not winning a ship for a while.

    To my other Raider Brethren,why is OKC, so tough, is it their turn or are they going to be strong or peter out at the end. So let me get this straight, the season is barely four games old, yet we are thumping our chest already.

    Let’s have this discussion again in March, and if I’m wrong, you can rightfully at that time thump your chest and I will acknowledge your exsistence at that time.

    If Reggie McKenzie takes the GM job, look for Winston Moss or Kevin Greene as DC options.

    Dennis Thurman will also be in the running.

    Raiders should also take a hard look at Dean Pees. Steve Spagnuolo and Jack Del Rio are options as well.

    ^^^^^^^
    I have been saying the same. The new DC choice will just depend on if the new GM and Hue want to convert to the 3-4 or stick with the 4-3.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Also, from #114, whos in the slot?

    Whys that? I thought the crazy ole coot some people hated and thought was ruining the Raiders is gone now?

  • DKnight007

    Bush needs to remain a Raider….period.

    The new GM and Huey need to realize how important it is to have a two good LEGIT RB’s in this league.

    By keeping Bush, it also would provide the Raiders with flexibility when it comes to possibly trading away, DMC, Bush or T Jones IF the right offer comes along.

  • inonewordraider

    Tolbert and VJax practiced today, Matthews didn’t listed as questionable, SD is going all in

  • DKnight007

    Raiders offense should be able to maintain drives and score at will against this Charger defense.

    Huey, Saunders and Carson need to pick the Charger D apart and do what they want on offense with Ford, D Moore, Bush, Reece, DHB, Murphy, Chaz, Boss and maybe even T Jones coming into the mix this weekend.

    Myers can even catch a pass or two!

    Carson just needs to take care of the ball and the receivers need to stay focused and catch the ball first and everything after that will take care of itself.

    Raiders defense needs to clamp down, play smart penalty free football and get to Cry Me a Rivers and smart in the secondary.

    LB’s just need tobe patient and fill the gaps on running plays and do not over pursue. Stay disciplined!

    Hope they CAN keep Michael Bush. They’ll have to pay him starter’s money. He’s gained 1000 yds off the bench.

    Mistress Beecher is trash and brings the lamest schit ever to the blog. He got called out as well and was proven a fraud cuz he wasnt at the Ritz and he didnt show up to a game this year as he claimed he would

    As for the Lakers…Kobe thinks he is still 25 and his game is fading as fast as his hairline…they need more athletes to deal with the Western Conf in the playoffs for sure……OKC was tough last year but Westbrook is a big problem for them if they wanna win a title this year. He has the look of a guy who doesnt like to be told what to do.He has issues being a PG but wants to be a scoring star while Durant is easily the best scorer in the NBA. You wanna say OKC is the hands down favorite but as I see it no one in the West is that as of yet. Yes we will resume this in March

  • BewareofRaiders

    I really do hope we fire CHUCK B!!!!! he is not fit for the job dont let the door hit you on the way out. Bring on del rio or spags. We will destroy the chargers. We beat them before and we can beat them again period! And on bspn teddy b is the only man on there that had sense and not buy into the tebow bs and saying the cheifs will come to play and beat denver for crennell. He is the first/only one on bspn/nfln saying cheifs over broncos and raiders over chargers that i seen. And im not buying that whole tebow finatic anyway he has been exposed!! And if he was suspose to come back strong then how come he didnt do that to the bills? After the whoppin brady and pats gave them. Screw teblow and the donkeys elway will replace teblow next year. 9-7 AFC WEST CHAMPS!!!

    Despite the picks, CP and Hue are fulfilling the Davis dream of filling the air with footballs and having them caught deep downfield by fleet footed track stars in pads.

    Mix that with some power runnnig to keep a D honest and I think you have a solid formula for winning football.

    Obviously we need help but what a momentum-builder this game has the potential to be, even if it means taking momentum into next season at 9-7 (but fk that, lol).
