Huff switching from FS to CB in 2012

In the first of what promises to be a slew of changes, Michael Huff is converting from free safety to cornerback next season.
Huff played cornerback at times during a stellar collegiate career at the University of Texas. He has played it sparingly for the Raiders during his six-year career, mostly in the nickel package.
However, without a proven option opposite seven-year veteran Stanford Routt, coach Hue Jackson has decided to move Huff in an attempt to shore up a weakness.
The Raiders tried veteran Chris Johnson in that spot this season. However, a groin injury suffered by Johnson in training camp derailed his season.
From there, the Raiders used rookies DeMarcus Van Dyke and Chimdi Chekwa, as well as veteran Lito Sheppard.
None panned out as well as hoped for, if not expected.
Huff is excited about the prospect of taking on a new challenge. He always has fancied himself as a versatile player who is capable of playing any position in the secondary.
At cornerback, Huff will be able to match up better against receivers who aren’t as big and strong as the players he dealt with on a regular basis at safety.
Chuck Bresnahan remains the defensive coordinator for now. However, it’s likely that Jackson will insist upon a change once a general manager is hired.
If there is a change, the new defensive coordinator would be told by Jackson that Huff now is a cornerback.
So, in essence, the Raiders are hoping that Huff that can fill the void created by the departure of Nnamdi Asomugha to the Philadelphia Eagles via free agency before the 2011 season.

    The Black Panthers were an un-American and terrorist organization. All members should be tried as enemy combatants and executed if found guilty.

    The Black Panthers memory was ; candidates signing up saying , where s my weapon , and when do I get training…and they handed them milk bottles and said, i hope your ready to feed some children, and change diapers.

    Wasn’t all shoot outs – it was free breakfast, in fact the Panthers were the forerunners of breakfast programs for children….

    One of the reasons we have cheap gas is because their aren’t a lot dead beat brothers stealing gas and knocking of gas stations.

    Ray,

    Why aren’t you utilizing your supplemental retirement account?

    I see no police officers in Los Alamos by the name of Ray with an account.

    PERA and the LAC pension aren’t going to be enough my friend.

    Let me help you build retirement security.

    ========

    They were, genius. COINTELPRO had the Panthers infiltrated with provocateurs, and they were destroyed from within thanks to Merrill McCullough, Ron Karenga and other traitorous black people. It kept going in the 90s with Khalid Muhammed, but he too was eliminated, as was Tupac. The Panthers were a national organization, that included Fred Hampton. When Bobby Hutton was killed, actor, Marlon Brando came as one of the pallbearers and spoke. Hoover had surveillance, and they are justifying his illegal, and unconstitutional acts against the American people with the pathetic J.Edgar film (dir by Clint Eastwood, who should be ashamed to have even done a film)…guess Hitler’s biopic is next.

    You know I know that Raider Sam.

    I’m just talking about this useless Confederate degenerate idiot that calls himself a law officer and constantly makes blatantly RACIST comments about Black people, yet claims to support a football team that is about 75% Black!

    Wait as long as Black people don’t have any power or authority he’s ok with it.

    I hope he gets hit by a bus tonight like I would for any Klansman.

    Better him than whatever Black or Hispanic person that he happens to pull over tonight.

    Very True. Water shortage stunts our towns growth. Been in drought conditions for over a decade. Airport is nothing but a runway with a gas station and blinking lights.
