Raiders assistant trainer Chris Cortez is a hero

By Jon Becker
Friday, June 22nd, 2012 at 4:24 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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:

    Was Vince Evans a USC product?

    My point is well taken then lmao

    Waiting for the preseason to figure out if your defense is any good is like waiting till the dress rehearsal the night before the performance to see if you can actually pull off the show. By the time the dress rehearsal is over and it’s apparent that the show stinks, it’s too late

    @G123

    you practice how you play. obviously they weren’t bad enough in OTA’s to warrant dumping players and signing others. We’ll see what happens in camp. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a few roster moves on both sides of the ball. Reggie & Dennis are both rookies, remember?

    I know some here are concerned about a few positions on offense like TE, Blocking FB, backup RB, RT, but I worry about our defense and especially our secondary.

    ———————————————————
    TE: ??
    FB: What about SCHMITT?
    RT: Bring back Mario Williams??
    D: Geriatric CB’s and overpaid safeties PLUS “Mike the Missile”

    PROBLEMS SOLVED.

    Anyone going to the Baltimore or Carolina road games???

  • RaiderRockstar

    I know what Myers is all about. He’s garbage at TE, below avg at everything. Only redeeming quality is above avg special teams play

    ***

    @G123

    Myers has 12 career starts.

    Branch got better in his 4th year, didn’t he?

    Who says BM can’t do the same??

    his playing time, catches & yards increase every year.
    He’s only 26 years old

  • lefty12

    Myers has outlasted Miller and Boss.To say he is below average at everything would be a mistake.If he were that bad he wouldn’t still be around.

    lol

    Seriously, you must have seen him play. Stiff as a board and runs ugly routes to gaps and catches easy softball pitches and immediately looks for a patch of grass to fall down. Routine is run to space, catch, wince then fall down. every friggin time.

    Thanks for the correction.

    Yeah, I meant Henderson (tongue-in-cheek), but I think the guys there now are just as good. I’d like to see Barksdale take it from Barnes.

    Some of the other stuff I wrote was in jest, and injuries will hurt this team if the CBs get hurt.

    That being said, all of the teams have issues, and will be hurt by injuries in key places…

    I saw that the ESPN guy predicted 5-11 for the Raiders. I see 7-9 to 9-7.

    I think if I can get out there I am going to have to get a hotel because driving 6ish hours after tailgating may not be in my best interest. I figure 1 of 2 things are going to happen after the game.

    1) I get FK’d up because we are celebrating a victory!

    2) I’m mourning a loss and get FK’d up.
