Practice notes from Wednesday

Here is a list of the players who either weren’t at practice or weren’t practicing during the 30-minute window permitted the media today: wide receivers Jacoby Ford (foot) and Denarius Moore (hamstring), fullback Rashawn Jackson (hip), linebacker Aaron Curry (knees), center Stefen Wisniewski (calf), tackle Ed Wang (shoulder), tackle Zach Hurd (head), tight end Richard Gordon (unknown), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (unknown) and defensive tackle Jamie Cumbie (foot).
The Raiders are practicing for another hour or so. At the conclusion of practice, the media are slated to interview offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, defensive coordinator Jason Tarver and numerous players.
At that point, I will provide a lengthy post about coach Dennis Allen’s take on the portion of practice — full-team drills — closed to the media, as well as other topics of interest.
The Raiders practice in Napa on Thursday for the final time. They resume their preseason work Monday in Alameda at their year-round facility. They are off Friday and Sunday, with a game against the Detroit Lions on Saturday night at the Coliseum.
The Lions game marks the final game with the Raiders for 12 players, given the first roster cuts are Monday. Teams are required to be at a maximum of 75 players by Monday afternoon.
The final roster cuts are Aug. 31, when teams are required to pare their rosters to 53. Players cut that day are subject to a 24-hour waiver period. If they clear waivers, they can be signed to the practice squad Sept. 1, provided they meet the criteria.

    realtruraider Thanks for that one also….He always plays
    hard and doesn’t complain and I know he’s got bad knees.
    Bet that’s why DA is letting him sit out the preseason.

    Burn and East

    I will agree that Seymour doesn’t lose at the point of attack, could be the martial arts work he does…funny how Streater does martial arts and seems to use his hands well also.

    Some thoughts.

    Raiders problem are due to this.

    1-Greg Knapster. ZBS works, see other teams running it with success. Ravens, Packers, Saints, etc. The problem is our OC. He simply is not suited to be a playcaller. Simple as that ladies and gents.

    2-Injuries to key players. Jacoby Ford, D Moore. These players miss a lot of playing time due to their smallish body type. They are prone to getting injured by larger defensive players.

    If you put those 2 items together, we are looking at a inconsistent offense.

    Im not concerned about the D. Tarver and Allen will make it work.

    TxRaider210….hell they’ve gotta have a year or two at the helm before we’ll have any idea if they are on the right track.Couple of drafts down the road and we’ll all know for sure.

    This applies to alot of raider fans in here if we would have come out and score TD’s on opening drives nobody would have panic and everybody would have said we are going to the superbowl. But throw a couple of picks and every body panincs. Its preseason Gents. chill the F out.

    Isn’t it interesting? The best part is that many of these so-called “fans” take great joy in certain players failing just so they can be right about guys in their doghouse.

    Heard that bro, but we were 8-8 last season and we play in a division that’s wide open for the taking. Once playoffs come, all bets are off and it’s any Defenses game.imo

    Maybe Jordan could pull a Metta World Peace, or would his opponent take his ball and go home:(

    Links are for loners and losers

    The Beeech Diggity circulates his hot tracks in the underground scene. My strippers hand out demos to customers in 3 piece suits getting lap dances

    Eventually one of these jokers will have major industry connections and start begging the Beeeech Diggity to sing a huge contract with upfront $

    That’s that way Billy Ocean conquered the world, shout out to the U.S.A.

  • REALLIONAIREB

    Opinion : Coach a shld put in alil of the zone read 4 TP…

    I mean that alone giv defenses fits last season and coach A was there to see first hand how it can work in today’s game.Is it a NFL offence? NO…Iz it room for it on the league???see it catapult the donkeys to the top of the league in rushing!!!

    It least show it early in the season just to make defenses prepare 4 it even if we don’t even plan to use it ever week

    I mean come on look Wut TeBozo and MsGayhe did in it and u don’t think TP and RunDMc and I dose of T.Jones wldnt be hard to contain

  • Breaking_Black

    Pretty funny, considering everything that people in here have been saying about him, that Seymour is about to come on NFL Network to talk about how the “Commitment to Excellence” lives on in Oakland.

    Stay tuned to see if he mentions his commitment to days off..

  • TxRaider210

    Put TP, Reece and Barnes(yep) as eligible WR’s near the goal-line.

    Never understood why they delay preseason games if people don’t show up. I mean it’s preseason….games that don’t count. It could just be me because I live in Tracy but it seems like the games are on at the same time regardless if they sell out like last game or not
