Raiders add veteran fullback

The Raiders concluded a busy day Tuesday by signing veteran fullback Owen Schmitt.
Schmitt, 27, spent the past two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles after a two-year stint with the Seattle Seahawks. He appeared in 61 games during his first four NFL seasons.
Schmitt, 6-feet-2 and 245 pounds, is a punishing blocker, especially in the run game. The Raiders currently have Marcel Reece and Manase Tonga at fullback on their roster.
However, it’s conceivable that Schmitt could force out Tonga at some point, given he has more experience.

    So Beetch, how do the Lackers respond from a 30 point drubbing by OKC? Rather if you are going to be that dominated and humiliated, what exactly is the strategy to come back with?

    ————————–

    Yo, the Purple & Gold gots to go with match ups, can’t be successful against their athleticism

    Gasol v Ibaka – Gasol works him inside and in the post for 18 and 8

    Bynum v Perkins – If Bynum doesn’t discover his dominance we’re finished. Needs 24 and 14

    Kobe v Anyone – Kobe doesn’t need 40, but must dominate the 2nd going into halftime and the 4th to close it out

    Artest keep Durant under 30 and somehow Sessions and Blake contain Westbrook, although we don’t really have anyone who can stop him

    This season the Lake Show has been successful late in games V the Drizzle, so gots to keep it close into the 4th

    I don’t like Kelly’s attitude, saying “I don’t want to play nose … but I’ll do it as long as they are paying me”

    sounds like a check casher to me. doesn’t sound like a guy who will lose any sleep if a team runs for 150+ against us.
    =========

    I agree

    Have to agree with this. He mentions money first and not the success of the team. Great point, RR.

    I agree with RR. TK doesn’t want to play NT.
