Ex-Raider Barret Robbins released from jail, lashes out at reporter

By Jon Becker
Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 at 8:02 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Former Raiders center Barret Robbins, was released from a Florida prison Tuesday, where he had spent the past year and a half for an attack on three Miami Beach police officers in 2005, CBS4 in Miami reported.

The station said Robbins appeared unapologetic for his attack on three Miami Beach police officers in 2005. Interviewer Gary Nelson asked Robbins if he could overcome alcohol and drug problems that have plagued him.

“I’m not worried about that and that’s not anybody’s business but mine,” Robbins replied. “That’s something I’ll deal with myself.”

Robbins then broke off the interviewed and uttered an obscenity when asked if he owed the police officers an apology.

    I rewatched the game rewind thing yesterday.

    Huge KO return by Goodson, completely changed an ugle scene (being down 10 in the 3rd quarter) to a positive with a 54 yard return.

    Also, we need an upgrade at S. MM34 see’s the field for two snaps and gets picked on for a first. Gio brings energy, but he can’t cover. Branch is good in the box, but not really anywhere else. Huff is a jack-of-all-trades, master at none.

    I am going to laugh at him and others, if we can squeek out a playoff appearance in Reggie’s first year, while slashing salary and picking up low-level FA’s and practice squad guys.

    ————-

    Im seeing the same stuff.

    Here’s my report so far, Im at halftime.

    PITT REPORT

    Im watching this game with the DT’s and DE’s under the microscope. Also looking to see what went right with the O-Line and what is the issue with our receiving corps, are they getting mugged downfield or are their routes or are they still running sloppy routes. Also, Special Teams was worlds better this game. Is Hoffman off the hot seat?

    Here we go:

    Opening defensive series… D was excellent. DT’s getting good push and DE’s were actually hurrying Big Ben. Our DBs need to be more aggressive. We got exploited on that pick play but oh well. Huff blew his coverage on the TD. There was going to be a adjustment curve for him changing positions, we know that and accept it.

    McFadden’s long run… More impressive than DHB’s blocking was the way he sold the route. The CB thought it was a go route and wasnt even looking into the backfield. By the time the CB realized that it was not a pass play, DMC was already blowing by. All blocking aside, if DHB doesnt sell this, the CB breaks up the run. These are the LITTLE things that cause breakdowns in a defense that result in a huge play. The other major breakdown on Pitt was that the ILB completely missed his gap and left a gapping hole for DMC to run thru. Normally these are the types of mistakes we are making. Big plays dont happen without big breakdowns. The line did good in not getting pushed back like in previous weeks, that is a major improvement. But that play only goes for 4 yards if the ILB doesnt screw up. That is the benefit of the ZBS, it forces the LB’s to commit to a gap before the RB has too, thus giving the RB the advantage.

    HC – We won the penalty and turnover battle. That usually equals a win in the NFL. Credit DA here. But when the old refs come back, its gonna get ugly for us because the biases will be back also. I dont really see us taking advantage of the replacement refs like most teams seem to be coached into doing. This is hurting us now but will pay dividends once Pete Rozelle’s thugs come back. And for all you idiots that wanted more aggressiveness and creativity, how about going for it on 4th that early in the game that far in the red zone?
    OC – I know you monkeys dont want to admit it, but Knapp called the same plays he always did. Give the credit where it is due. He called McFadden’s big run. DMC said it in the press conference. It’s amazing what our O can do when the lineman actually block. But the jackals here will still ignore it, just like when they tried to give Palmer the credit instead of Knapp for the big run, as if they were in the huddle and knew the call. An agenda will make you see only what you want to see.
    DC – Tarver’s gameplan was solid. Lots of zone. Dont give up a big play. Bring pressure as the game progressed. It will be interesting to see what he dials up for Peyton.

    QB – Palmer was killing it. A+. Nothing more to say here.
    RB – If you were one of the people calling to trade DMC, slap yourself. If you were one of the people calling for Goodson to start, castrate yourself and save the gene pool.
    WR – Still too many drops on catchable balls by this unit. Pitt’s DB’s were mauling our guys during their routes. Credit them for taking advantage of the refs.
    TE – Meyers and Aus are GREAT in the passing game. But the blocking is still a major concern and needs improvement. We wont be able to attack the edges until this unit improves drastically.

    OLine – Night and day difference. Briesel was a completely different player. Our line also got push and was changing the line of scrimmage for the first time this year. Maybe we should be giving massive credit to the lines of Miami and SanDiusky for making us look so bad? Or maybe our Line is finally starting to gel and get it figured out. Either way, Pitt got manhandled.

    DLine – Kelly is routinely double teamed. When he isnt, he is getting great push into the QB. DE’s were active, Ben is just great at getting rid of the ball. If we get the same effort out of this unit in Dungver, Manning will have lots of trouble. The contingent of semi’s here that are hating Seymore and Kelly are seriously mistaken. These guys are playing VERY well. ShoNasty is still pretty invisible. He’s got to go up against the LT which is generally the best lineman. But he was supposed to have a breakout year. We are still waiting.
    LBs – Wheeler is the best player on D this year. He is involved on so many plays and saved us multiple times during the game where we were beat. Our LB core is rock solid when we do our jobs. Burris is getting better with every play. He gets better as he settles down. And you can see RoMac’s play improve as well when he’s not worried about Burris. Tollefson is non-existent at this point.
    DBs – Gio’s play recognition and reaction speed is excellent. Not so good on the anticipation early on but he grows more aggressive as the game goes on. Huff has to be more aggressive, I expect he will as he grows into the position.

    Special Teams – new punt returner Adams is the best we’ve had since JLH. We got lucking on the TD punt return that was called back. But overall, this unit was almost as improved as our other highly improved unit, the OLine.

    Replacement Refs – Its 70s football for now. Im loving that we arent getting the bias against us. But when the old guys return, expect us to be getting those 5-6 head scratching penalties a game back. The good thing is that DA has us at around only 3-5 of our own penalties a game. Kelly isnt jumping offsides anymore and yet he’s still getting a good jump on the snap.

    Kelly is routinely double teamed. When he isnt, he is getting great push into the QB.

    ***********************

    I was rewatching the rewind on NFLN, so you get about 75% of the plays, but I didn’t see him getting double-teamed that much.

    I truly believe that was one of TK’s worst games in years, but I am no “film” guru. You can’t just let the defense do what they want with you. If they single you, you have to make a play (he didn’t). If you get double-teamed, you can’t let them shove you right out of the passing windows, as they did a few times, when he was shoved completely out of the pocket.

    Need better from him. Seymour was pushing the pocket, making a few plays, being around the ball-carrier.

    *******************************

    I loved that, lol.

    As if Carson scrapped the play-call and drew things up in the dirt. And I am sure it was a GREGG KNAPP PLAN to have Carson make more line calls and stuff, since it was now the second game for Wiz (which has to help) and also D-Moore.

    And when he “switched” a play, guess what he switched it to? Another Gregg Knapp play.

    —————————–

    I’d love to watch the replay with you then. Im watching it now. Rewinding ever play 2-3 times.

    Kelly gets great push when singled. Big Ben was just getting the ball off super quick and picking apart our soft zone.

    The problem is when they have a RB or TE stay into block and that allows both Seymore and Kelly to get doubled up. Im just not seeing enough out of Houston or Shonasty. They are getting push on some plays and were active early on, but never really had an impact.

    I dunno. Im going to have to disagree with you. Kelly is playing well in my eyes. And you know how critical I can be on Kelly.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Im just not seeing enough out of Houston or Shonasty.

    ****************************

    Can agree there.

    There was one play in the first half where Houston was outside and singled up, and he got a decent push, but then was stone-walled, and was basically jumping around trying to swing his arms at Ben, only the T just clamped on and Houston looked like a little brother, just swinging and fighting, but literally not moving forward an inch.

    Need speed-rushers, and Toffy ain’t doing it week to week.

    Yeah ok. How many redzone TDs did we have last week?

    All brilliant play designs. Especially the Gordon TD.

    It’s amazing what a team looks like when the players actually block and catch the ball.

    Agreed.

    If a DT is getting good push and disrupting the integrity of a pocket, he’s done his job. A guy like Sapp that can get 10 sacks a year is a once in a lifetime player.

    But a DE has to be able to force sacks when singled up on. I know it was Big Ben and they were told to contain him. But its been the same story for 3 weeks now. Rivers is far from mobile and our DE’s were non-existent in that game.

    1st rd draft pick next year has to be a game changing DE. Raider O says it, I think youre saying it, and now Im endorsing it.

    Well, he was a preseason phenom last yr. at GB…a LOCK to make the roster there. He returned int. for a td in a game and was impressive. Then…he injured his back and didn’t play during reg season, then was cut recently in lieu of GB drafting so many defensive players and Ted Thompson wanting HIS guys in there.

    Apparently now he’s healthy. His big skils are instinct…and being a good pass rusher.

    Drawback, and what I hear is what Ted Thompson may have concerns about is the fact he was injured 2 of his 4 yrs. at BYU and the fact he had the back injury last yr. It’s a concern for us as well, but healthy??? he could be a steal imo.

    Yes, there is a little kool aid in that analysis.

  • hwnrdr

    Thanks Johnny!

  • DJ Johnny

    …also on So’oto I saw a Packer blog where they had a big story on him and the fans were blogging that he was a big time stud and “just what the Packers need” to shore up their D.

    One blogger said “Every good team needs one bad ass Samoan…now we’ve got ours”.

    He was generally thought of as a guy who would get significant playing time…BEFORE his back injury. General thought was that THIS yr. he was simply odd man out.

  • hwnrdr

    Hopefully he works out for us! I guess more reason for GB fans to be upset!
