Raiders in midst of final practice before bye

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 at 12:04 pm in Oakland Raiders.

No surprises, or new faces, on the practice field today, as the Raiders get in one last practice before breaking for four days during the bye week.
Cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot), right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), defensive tackle Richard Seymour (unknown) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) are the only players not taking part in the proceedings.
Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion) is practicing for the second straight day. We spotted him running routes and catching passes, too, which bodes well for a return against the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 14.
Not sure what’s up with Seymour not practicing. He was here Monday and Tuesday. Best guess is, coach Dennis Allen gave Seymour the day off so that Seymour could fly to Georgia to spend more time with his family. That has been the case in recent seasons.

– Word is circulating that the league will consider moving the Raiders-Jaguars game to Monday night, Oct. 22, if the A’s advance to the American League Championship Series.
The A’s could host Game 6 and or 7 that weekend, depending upon how things play out. Not worth worrying about this early, but be forewarned if you have tickets to that game.

    Why are they torturing us with this friggin goofball.

    I’d rather have my testicles put in a vice than see, listen to, or hear about this guy doing or saying ANYTHING.

    This is some bizarre, cruel joke.

    “MAKING F’ING STRIDES”???

    This Hue had to go sht These people keep saying around here makes me repeat myself” Dumbest football fans in the world are on this blog!”
    =====================
    A buddy of mine moved into the loft Hue vacated after he was let go, found a dirty NFL white sweatband in the closet, must have known he wouldn’t need anything that wasn’t orange in his next gig.

    Look how fast Hue started to undo Al’s system immediately after he passed. If Al’s still with us, he’s dusting off the overhead projector right about now.

    Greg Knapp said run game “made good strides last week” — in terms of scheme consistency & being in right assignments
    ==================
    So Mr. Knapp how come McFadden is still struggling in the system and you only scored 6 pts. on Sunday?

    Knapp: “Hahahahaha. Let’s keep this in perspective for a minute here…we need to have patience”.

    Yeah there is. In the NFL, It’s called a pink slip.

    We should get some “9th in total offense!” t shirts made to mock these guys saying Hue Jackson shouldn’t have been fired.

    Gregg Knapp is a nightmare and DA is not absolved for hiring this freaking idiot.

    Well, I work and pay taxes. If that makes me a failure, fine. I can live with it.

  • Dakota

    The only strides Knapp is making is from behind on DA…..that’s the only way he hasn’t been demoted yet.

  • oakfoshow

    #172. I bet you can live with it,thats what makes failures failures.

    Knapp needs to go. So did Hue.

    “We should get some “9th in total offense!” t shirts made to mock these guys saying Hue Jackson shouldn’t have been fired.”

    too bad you cant grasp what people are saying in here maybe its selective reading or just a dysfunctional way you go about things.

    The issue is not that we are proud of being ranked 9th the issue is that we should be improving on that ranking not regressing.

    You seriously could not figure that out?

    ===========================================

    While I agree, if you remember correctly McKenzie took his time making a decision on his head coach. That caused a lot of good candidates to be gone by the time we needed a staff. So the pickings were slim. Remember, the Raiders are married right now to McKenzie and Allen. But they are not married to Knapp.

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Fair enough. I’m cool with making enough money to live on and know I’m paying my share. There’s a lot of people doing worse than me.

  • DJ Johnny

    To tell a fanbase after just getting humiliated by your biggest rival in a game where castrated our best player with his retarded play calls and bullschytt system, and only scored two fg’s, that “we made strides” in that game…

    I don’t even know what to say…it’s beyond any words I can come up with at the moment.

  • theghostronin79

    Even DMAC himself is giving the company line about NOT being frusterated about the lack of rushing success this year, Just gotta keep grinding right? (Of course, what’s he supposed to say? He’s a good soldier)

    BULLSH*T, I think he’s frusterated as HELL. Just look at his face and body language when he picks himself up off the ground after a gang tackle for LOSS.
    Dude is PISSED the FU*K OFF. He just Claps the ball real hard with both hands in effort not to punch it into the stands.

    Yeah. We can argue about Hue all we want but he’s not coming back, but something needs to be done about this Knapp guy.

    I’m so mad right now that I literally want to punch him in the face…

    Anybody know where I can a good voodoo doll made of this jamoke?

  • http://www.raiderettes.com Sullivan44

    Last game was an L one way or another, with Manning’s back against the wall. I’m really not faulting the team for that. Weeks 1 and 2 are a bigger concern. And Knapp should be on the hot seat. Although that doesn’t mean we’re missing Hue, either.

    Again as I have said in here many times before, the zone system is not just a zone system it is a combination of zone and power. If it is lst and goal from the one, teams are going to power block not zone block. It has always been that way, so defenses can’t get comfortable.

    With regards to Wylies comments, those comments kind of concern me. And what I mean by that is, when McFadden first got here, I thought the exact same thing Wylie is saying: you can just pitch the ball to McFadden he will scoot around the edge for five yards every time. And basically he can. But you can’t run your offense that way. To be a RB in the league, you have to be able to run between the tackles. That is what the new regime is trying to do with McFadden.

  • DJ Johnny

    Even DA said that “nothing positive can be taken away from this game” in regard to the Denver debacle.

    But Knapp insults us by telling us that “we made strides”.

    Is there a sniper out there we can hire?
