Free agent center Satele arrested

There has been little buzz about the possibility of the Raiders re-signing unrestricted free agent center Samson Satele, even though he’s started 42 games in three years since being acquired from the Miami Dolphins.

In light of an disorderly conduct arrest in his native Hawaii Saturday as reported in the Honolulu Advertiser, there might be even less now.

It seemed as if Satele might be out the door last year when he was an unrestricted free agent and the Raiders drafted Stefen Wisniewski, with Hue Jackson procliaming him the starting center.

Instead, Satele signed another one-year deal with the Raiders and Wisniewski instead started all season at left guard.

When Satele arrived in Oakland, the Raiders were strictly a zone blocking team under coach Tom Cable. He was slow to adapt to the system, but eventually became the starter and has been lauded for his toughness and ability to play through injury. In Satele’s first season with Oakland, Chris Morris, smaller, quicker and an experienced zone blocker, was the starter for the first four games.

The Raiders will return to a heavy emphasis on zone blocking this season under offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and line coach Frank Pollack, who were both with the Houston Texans last season. The Raiders have already imported one Houston player in Mike Brisiel, who will replace Cooper Carlisle at right guard.

It remains to be seen whether Wisniewski will remain at left guard or move to center.

Satele was arrested at 4 a.m. in an area popular having many late-night restaurants and bars, according to the Advertiser story.

    Last Peyton Manning vs. Raiders memory I have is Peyton doing the naked bootleg and Shaunessy crashing down hard, and that helped Peyton put the game away. Hoping Shaunessy gets a chance to squish him this time!

    “Manning will not have a very strong team around him.”

    There were many years in Indy he didn’t have a strong team around him. The key is his line and his receivers…and timing, which means practice.
    ********************

    Please remind me how long it took him to win a SB? For most of his career they had a very good running game and TOP NOTCH WRs like Harrison and TE. He also played in a Dome. Oh and he also wasn’t 36 with 2 neck surgeries in the bag.

    Devers d was verry good. They had to play like 100 downs a game..

    @@@@@@@@@

    Exactly. That’s how tehy duped Peyton to sign with them.

    Elway to Manning “Our defense held us in games while our offense went 3 & out for the 1st 3 quarters. With you at the helm, you can take off the pads every 4th quarter!”

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    Now I have not looked this up myself, but one talking head in particular used to talk about how Teblow and their running attack saved Denver’s defense by winning the time of possession battle.

    Like I said, that is from Skip Bayless……not verified.

    I think we need to go 3-4. Our 4 man rush doesnt get enough pressure to stop guys like peyton brees rodgers or brady.. We need to confuse him & blitz effectivly.. And I like the 3-4s ability to hide whos comming.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Was it the defense getting Denver off the field and giving it to the offense or the offense keeping the ball in possession. My guess is the former! Many of the runs were big plays not sustaining short runs to keep drives alive.

    I guesas we will be stocking up on pass rushers now for the Denver game. I would keep a constant rotation pass rushers on Manning.

    Lol, come on man, everyone knows Manning almost always gets rid of the ball before anyone can touch him….he has been doing so for years, and it is unlikely to change.

  • raiderzmaverick

    My only hope is if Manning really isn’t as healed as he thinks he is and Denver gets stuck without a QB scene and a bad contract.

    If Manning is fully health, that man carried the entire team to victory himself even when the team around him sucked (witness the record when he got hurt last year compared to the previous 10 years in a row).

    If he’s playing even close to how he played in Indy, than Denver will be tough to beat.

  • luvmarvhub

    “Lol, come on man, everyone knows Manning almost always gets rid of the ball before anyone can touch him….he has been doing so for years, and it is unlikely to change.”

    Am thinking the same thing, that once he gets down timing with receivers, it’s not our line that has to perform, it’s our linebackers and secondary. I think the secondary might take shape, but our linebackers worry the heck out of me.

  • Marks hair

    733. Yes! Hello! He ALWAYS wins the division.. We are just trying not to get anothr 1500yrd in penalties…

  • 1960AutumnWind

    You have got to get Manning to move his feet. He is not the same person when running or scrambling. Exact opposite of Tebow. Remember this guy has thrown a ton of interceptions. Maybe we can get TP in town for a repeat performance!!!!

    When the running game was lost, he still made playoffs. Furthermore, as far as Raiders and Raider fans are concerned, he doesn’t have to go to win the Super Bowl or even get there in order for him to be a success in our eyes. All he has to do is win the AFC West.

    That being said, I am glad he signed with the Broncos. I believe it spurs our franchise to get better, and we’ve beaten him before. I agree with others that KC will be good and one never knows about the Chargers.

    In fact, face it, no one knows about any team. The Giants could be mediocre next year.

  • fingers

    Looking forward to seeing the Raiders play Manning twice a year…
    Of course the talkers are claiming the Afc west is now all the Donkeys….
    I’m not sold on Manning being the same manning we were use too…4 surgerys means the first 3 didn’t help ….. I say Bring him on… Let’s see what he’s got..until he proves he’s 100 % it’s hype… Just like( Tebow) Baby Jesus was …… If our teams is where we want it to be I don’t care who the donkeys Qb is….fk the Donkeys… Fear Nobody …

    ========================
    We actually now have suddenly a really strong AFC West again. Any team literally could win. SD has a good team, but we’re all sure they will somehow manage to choke.
    KC was the team I was most worried about (they got some good signings and are a young and solid team).
    Denver now has the QB who single-handedly brought the Colts wins for 10 years in a row.
    We have potential. Lot of question marks. Hope we bring in some more players so we can win this division.

    Khalif Barnes 2011 Raiders RT sacks allowed 3.5 for 15 yards; penalties 11 false start 6 holds 3 16 games started. Not bad stats

    Last year our OL had low sacks & good run blocking but high penalties. Not bad. I think a key was bringing a lot of decent players in to compete best start worst cut.

    Khalif less holds than most of our OLs in 2011 sad to say

    Dude, check it out
    Preseason 2011, 1st game, 1st quarter, Barnes committed like 3 false starts in 4 plays.
    Was at best, false start waiting to end
    Now at worst false start waiting to happen
    Can’t say that’s not improvement

    I know many of you don’t agree but I think Khalif Barnes gave us a pretty good year at RT. Keeping him motivated and his head in the game may always be an issue, but the tackle market is pretty thin, so he may be back whether y’all like it or not. He was signed by Cable when we ran a ZBS and he can do the job if he wants to.
