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.

    And what was Al’s record for the past 20 years? ////////////////////Actually, about average including the dark years. Average sucks for a true Raider fan. But he gave us better years than ANY other owner or GM. You’re young, hang tight. your time will come.

    East didn’t Benson say that he wanted to dance with a winner or something to that effect?

    “You hated on Al Davis daily, for years and years. Stupidly posting his record, dozens of times a day, over and over,especially when you started getting slapped around, hoping to change the subject.”

    NOT only did he do exactly what you said he stooped even lower….He posted Al Davis physical address on this blog the day he died!!

    I am not kidding!

    “What we can tell you is that there was not enough compelling evidence gathered on scene, through statements or physical evidence, to make the investigators comfortable with an arrest on the 57-year-old male”
    How can you shoot someone in the face and dont have physical evidence to make an arrest.

    ——————————————–

    Same way you shoot someone in the head in the back seat of a squad car when he is cuffed and say he commited suicide

    I dont care what any of you say/think Miles Burris isn’t ready to play everydown in the NFL at LB … no wayyyyyyyy !!!!!! Curry needs to get healthy fast.

  • McFaddens_Sneakers

    Twinkle>>> he did say that i believe raiders and Lions made him an offer but he took a pass. Also I doubt that CP wants to play with chad again.

  • eastoaklandraider

    People who wanna know when did seymour take over a game? Try his first game against the chargers on MNF. That game he dominated. Haven’t seen much of that since but I’m still a fan and hope he can stay healthy so he doesn’t have any excuses if he doesn’t have a good year.

    This is correct but if we would have contacted him sooner maybe we could have signed him before GB entered the picture.

    East I am 100% with you on Seymour…I’m a fan of Big Rich but lotta folks here that know and see a lot more than I are really down on the man.When ya make the most ya better get on it I suppose.Hope he brings it right out of the gate.

    He said that Packers are talkin SB and the other teams he talked to are talkin tryin to make playoffs.

    Which is kinda true, but that is not the reason he signed there, his agent even called Reggie before he signed with the Pack, but Reggie told him go ahead we are good. Here is a link

    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.

    thanks for the link it sounds like the agent call him to see if he would counter the packers offer. Regg was not going to pay him more than the veteran minimum.

    I would have signed Cedric Benson for one year. Goodson is probably sh1t.

    Yo, decided to track a few dope jams in my bedroom

    Had to throw away a few empty boxes of Magnums that were sitting on my bed so there’s room for the 4 Track

    Two updates from Twitter/Sulia:

    Vittorio Tafur
    Defensive coordinator Jason Tarver thinking what fans are when it comes to cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke
    “I want to see him play in a game like he plays out here, in practice,” Tarver said

    Vittorio Tafur
    Asked Raiders coach Dennis Allen how free agent DE Andre Carter’s workout went Tuesday …
    “It went alright,” Allen said. “We got a good look-see and we’ll see what we do from there.”

  • burn_209

    You guys do realize that Seymour has never been a flashy player right? He has just been consistent at one thing and that is holding the point of attack. Say what you want but has anyone here actually seen Seymour blown off the ball?

  • RaiderRetribution

    Should Parson’s prove to be a beast at center I would have no problem with our all-rookie Raiders, Wisniewski remaining at left guard.

    Reggie also said by then he really liked what he seen in Goodson, so pretty much he wasn’t even interested anymore, however this was before the Arizona game, lol

  • Twinkle

    East…sorry about the lack of clarity on that one but (hearsay only) someone in here heard a rumor that Benson was gay.Don’t know if there are any links to that one.

    Richard Seymour is straight up WACK

    Ron Jeremy could provide a better pass rush

    Yo, speaking of my upcoming hip hop album Wrecks N Effect, here’s a little taste of my hot single “Gats Up N Yur Grille”

    It’s about shooting homies gang style then stopping by your mom’s house to watch a ‘lil Food Network

    Whut Whut, Beeech Diggity survived life in the hood
    Gang Warfare all around him growin’ up in Inglewood
    Cappin’ homies made the Beeech Dawg mean
    Now it’s time for some Food TV, give it up for Paula Deen

    Bottom line is, if fans can’t trust in what Reggie is doing, there will always be an argument. The man seems to make smart decisions on behalf of the club, so I will support what he and DA have on their agenda.
