WR Moore looks at full strength

The media are permitted only 30 minutes of practice-viewing time each day. However, it didn’t take anywhere near that long to glean that wide receiver Denarius Moore is at full strength and ready to roll.
Moore looked strong in his push off from the line of scrimmage, comfortable making sharp cuts and running at close to full speed during the early portion of practice.
Based on that, it’s safe to assume that he is going to start Monday night against the San Diego Chargers in the regular-season opener at the Coliseum.
Moore returned to practice Thursday for the first time since Aug. 4, when he went down with his latest hamstring injury. Apparently, the time off from practice and games, as well as the intensive rehab, are just what Moore needed to get back to where he was last season, when he burst on the scene as one of the league’s most-explosive receivers.
So, it appears as if Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey will start, with rookie Rod Streater and veteran Derek Hagan the primary backups. Rookie Juron Criner still looks hobbled by a sore ankle. Jacoby Ford hasn’t practiced or played in a game since Aug. 17 because of an injured left foot.

– Center Stefen Wisniewski (calf), kicker Sebastian Janikowski (groin) and defensive tackle Richard Seymour (knee) are practicing. Seymour and Moore were limited Thursday, as was left guard Cooper Carlisle (back).
We’ll know after practice whether Seymour, Moore and Carlisle were able to do more today, when we speak with coach Dennis Allen.

– In addition to working out wide receiver Derek Hagan on Wednesday, the Raiders also worked out receivers Jabar Gaffney and Tiquan Underwood, tight ends Fendi Onobun, Gabe Miller, Zack Pianalto and Mickey Shuler, and linebacker Joe Holland.

– No word yet on whether the Raiders-Chargers game sold enough tickets to merit the game being televised. In years past, teams had to sellout 72 hours in advance of the game for it to be televised.
However, the Raiders opted to take advantage of a new rule that enables them to have their home games televised if they sell only 85 percen of the tickets.
Again, it’s safe to assume that this game will be televised. All eight of Oakland’s regular-season home games in 2011 sold out and were televised, when the threshhold was 100 percen of tickets sold.

    Guaranteed play Monday.

    Play action to McFadden left, roll out right, chuck 50 yards to DHB back across the field. The Texans have run this play several times a game for years. Very successful play. Works great to leaking TE as well.

    DVD is gonna come back and bite us in the ass as many former Raiders have Marcus Allen and Jeff Jeager come to mind off top and to make it worse he went our bitter rival Pitt. Now DVD is on a Good D where he won’t even have to cover that long which makes his job that much easier and when is the last time Pitt actually had a Db who could cover Rod Woodson? Not sayn he is gonna be Rod but it might be scary to think what he COULD do if starts locating that ball. Al must be rolling over in his grave “you let MY guy go to pitt”

    Replacement refs will be the story of this weekend’s games come Monday. Goodell already said that the refs that worked Wednesday’s game were the best of the bunch. With that thinking, Sunday night and Monday night refs should be squads 2 through 4 (prime time games with no other concurrent games equal the biggest audience). That makes the weekend’s games subject to the remaining refs. Look for at least one or two games to decided by blatant calls/non-calls. And I mean worse than the regular bad calls/non-calls. Not doomsday but numerous coaches will have burned through their challanges by halftime and won’t have the opportunity to correct obvious errors. Just my opinion.
