Raiders assistant trainer Chris Cortez is a hero

A great story emerged from a potentially tragic one Saturday when Raiders assistant trainer Chris Cortez helped pull a woman out of a sinking car in the Oakland estuary.

Here’s a link to the story on our website, where we re-tell the story Cortez relayed to Jeanette Thompson from Raiders.com in the latest installment of their “Behind the Shield” video show.

Here’s a video from the story that aired on NBC BayArea:

    “brien you work fast food and you think you’re rich.”

    There he goes again saying things about people that he thought up and HE thinks is true but in reality he is wrong again.

    Stop lying about people here and you might get a warmer welcome to the blog!

    ODB,

    Good for you!
    I destroyed my man cave/ office, and then I had to clean the garage.

    my garage is my mantown. Silver and black of course. I also resided my house silver and black!

    “Of course you’re not really from Oakland you’re from Hayward.”

    And again he thinks he knows where you live because he has some kind of crystal ball or something?

    And here comes the negative attention he desires….

    I’m with you DAV.

    TBranch quietly does his job, makes all the tackles that Huffy refuses to attempt and fields his position well enough that he isn’t referred to as “toast” everyday like a certain CB that was just released was affectionately referred to.

    I refuse to worry about Branch on June 25th.

    If you dont like him, so be it.

    They didnt like DMC either.

    I trust Reggie McKenzie’s eye for talent WAY more than an opinion from this blog lol..

    I think it’s a good day when we’re speculating about TE’s. We’re not sitting here going

    “MAN, we need a top shelf Running back”
    “Damn, we need some receivers.”
    “Man we gotta fix that O-Line.”
    “We need a legit QB fellas.”

    NOPE, we’re talking about TE’s……….It is a GOOD DAY in the Nation.

    Well, If you ever come to the east coast to watch a game at least you can crash in it!

  • Raidernationdave

    I think you are right on with that comment. I think even the TE position will be awaken under GK’s offense. It’s not as if we have -0- TE’s that can’t play.

    Might be some old Panther affiliates in Oak Park and Del Paso Heights, Brien. You should come down here and meet them.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Brien, admit it. It wen’t over your head. I know you. You would have called it from the get go had you got it. You never let a hip hop reference get by. You’re just young and not up on that too short game like me.
