Moore practicing, as is Hagan


Wide receiver Denarius Moore is practicing today for the first time in more than a month. Therefore, it seems likely that he will play in the regular-season opener.
Moore has been sidelined since Aug. 4 with a hamstring injury. In addition to missing numerous practices, Moore sat out all four of Oakland’s exhibition games.
Coach Dennis Allen said there was a plan in place concerning Moore, who first injured his hamstring in an offseason practice. The plan, no doubt, was to give Moore as much time off as possible in an attempt to make sure he is as healthy as possible for the regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers.
Moore’s return, coupled with the signing of veteran Derek Hagan today, gives the Raiders four healthy receivers for Monday’s game. Jacoby Ford still is out with a foot injury and rookie Juron Criner has been slowed by an ankle injury.

— Kicker Sebastian Janikowski returned to practice today after being excused Tuesday so that he could spend time with his wife and twin girls.

— Center Stefen Wisniewski is practicing today, as well. However, he worked with the second-team offense during the media-access period. Alex Parsons still is working with the first-team.
It remains unclear whether Wisniewski’s calf will be healthy enough for him to start Monday night.

— Hagan is wearing No. 10, though he might switch to No. 88. Stay tuned. He jumped right into the swing of things and looks as if he has been here awhile.

    Can we get to 2-2? I think that would be a good start considering our schedule and all our changes.

    Just pointing out the hypocrisy of you people. If the Dow was still lingering below 10,000, “YOU PEOPLE” would be calling for a lynch mob.

    Well, you already are. Lol.

    Wow, the Dow is up 100% since 0bama took over?

    From Today:

    A slew of surprisingly strong economic reports on Thursday raises the chances that Friday’s critical August employment report will be better than had been anticipated by Wall Street economists.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA+1.87% surged 244.52 points, or 1.9%, to close at 13,292.00, its highest close since Dec. 28, 2007.

    Growth of economic activity among U.S. services industries ticked up in August with a rebound in employment, while production growth slowed, according to data released Thursday by the Institute for Supply Management.

    The ISM non-manufacturing index rose to 53.7%, slightly ahead of analysts’ expectations of 53%, from a reading of 52.6% in July.

    Romney and “lyin” Ryan probably vomited at their morning prayer meeting.

  • Damn, Nate Silver of the NY Times has 0bama up to 76% chance of winning electoral college.

    Goethel. He’s played well against the twos.

    What’s a MUP?

  • The economy is limping slightly better even tho the conservatives have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Oh, other than to try to restrict female rights. Hopefully none of this is lost on the American Public.

  • Ahh, good everyone has left. Wonder what’s in the fridge?

    Raider Nation!!

    Monday can’t get here fast enough. I like the fact we are going up against Cry me a river, so we can see if Bartel, Spencer, and the DB’s are in fact ready!

    I don’t think we will have problems scoring on Monday. It’s all about containing and getting after Philip.

    Raiders- 24
    Sandy Eggo- 17

    I’m still gunning for Burris as MUP, same pick as before camp, thinking he’ll beast out in a blitz happy game.

    Any chance the Raiders go after Pablo Sandoval to solidify the D-Line against the run. Did you guys see that fat A$$ blow up the guy coming into 3rd base last night?

    Yes, I did.

  • I think I’d rather see D Moore come off the bench until he’s in sync with Palmer & Knapp.

    Nah, politics is like football. You’ve got your two opposing teams as you do in football.
    It’s just that in politics they hit harder and they play dirtier.

    Sandy-eggo fan is going to be an unhappy camper Monday, like a camper who’s tent is being eaten by bears.

    Lowdown_in_Beijing Says: MUP = Most Underrated Player./////////Thanks. Underrated was the word I couldn’t remember. I had DHB last year, but I don’t think any one ever crunched the numbers and declared a winner. I re-read the rating rules and I wouldn’t want to either. One thing for sure, DHB not eligable this year.

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Hands down, DHB fared far better than even his most ardent fans could have hoped for…

    Goethel may not be dynamic, but his is solid at the POA…and he actually attacks the hole..

    …while #55 bobs around in a sea of O-linemen until there is no hole to attack and the RB has cutback…

    Bringing in Hagan – HAS to be an AL Saunders request – NOBODY else knows him !!!

    Carson does. Probably a Carson/Saunders request to the GM.

    Yo, just gave this wasted stripper an undercover Brazilian bikini wax

    Of course she woke up in the middle of it and chased the Beeeech Dawg around the penthouse until she fell into the hot tub

    Which reminds me, my island cool reggae band Rasta Ganja will be performing a few new jams this weekend at an upscale steak house in La Jolla

    Hit me up if you want to donate some weed


    I remember we played the late game that Monday night against the donkeys like 3-4 years ago and the donkeys were trashin us!!!

    D.Hall was getting his issue from Eddie Royal,my potna Joe(RaidersFan)and I was watching that game together and my brudda was knocking at the door(cowgirls fan) and we refuse to get up and open the door for hiz azz!!!

    Hope it’s not one of those Monday nights season openers

    Hagan was a huge pick up IMO. Plus Moore is back. Huge relief off my shoulders. Raiders Nation ALL DAY!
