Status quo for Raiders as Falcons game nears

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen and his staff have had 10 days to evaluate the 53-man roster and take steps to make any necessary tweaks before Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
As of now, McKenzie and Allen appear content to soldier on with the 53 players who were on the roster against the Denver Broncos on Sept. 30.
Allen said the Raiders didn’t work out any players last week, and we haven’t been able to confirm whether they did so Tuesdday, when the players had the day off.
Even if the Raiders did work out any players Tuesday, there aren’t any new faces on the field at practice today.

– Right offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot) and tight end Richard Gordon (hamstring) aren’t practicing today.
Barnes and Spencer are week-to-week. Gordon is day-to-day. Willie Smith is working at Barnes’ spot, with Michael Huff taking reps at cornerback once again.
David Ausberry is getting plenty of action at practice, along with starter Brandon Myers.

– The Raiders play at 10 a.m. on Sunday. In recent years, Raiders coaches adjusted the practice schedule the week of such games to simulate the time of the upcoming game.
No such tactic with Allen. He used it for the regular-season opener, when he had his players practice at the Coliseum on a Saturday nigth at about the time of their Monday night game two days later.

    That is scary. Dead on. But…he may not sya the “going back to the drawing board” thing cuz that would be somewhat admitting an issue.

    It may be more like… “we’re gonna go back and look at the film and find areas where we can improve…and just try and get better and see if we can’t start winning some ball games”.

    His wispy words are so encouraging to a desperate fan base. I take such solace in his fan motivation.

    At least humor us a little like Rex Ryan does…throw us a bone.

    McKenzie and Allen arae nothing but talkers, you are telling me 10 days to evaluate everything and they found nothing wrong with this team, Coaches , Players, Staff all okay, give me a fking break. The McKenzie and Allen duo wont last here they are nothign but phonies .

    Ya right.. Cable could coach .. and have the team believing. Cable had the team 6-0 in the division .. they were starting to become a tough defense that year.

    @oakfoshow AKA Surely …

    Hey surely … well I can’t tell you that I have any confidence in guarding Jones & White, but what I can tell you is that I have confidence in a pass-rush FINALLY.

    I also think we can run the ball well and set-up passing plays … last time we had DHB & Moore healthy was Pitt game (a WIN)… also we ran the ball pretty well. (WIN)

    I see similarities on the turf, on the road against a FAILcon team……..

    For Raiders to have any chance Sunday, Darren McFadden (and Knapp’s play calling) need to get going. Falcons giving up 5.4 yards per carry.

    Again why is everyone so concerned where our old coaches are at.

    CABLE WAS RIGHT FOR THIS TEAM.. just like HUE WAS RIGHT FOR THIS TEAM. only 3 coaches the past ten years knew what it mean to be Raiders and play against division opponents.

    The Raiders could learn a lot from the A’s when it comes to hustle and playing the whole game. After watching the second half meltdown against the Broncos, I have a hard time making excuses for them anymore. Hue should of been given a chance with his own defensive coordinator. No matter what you say about his character, he was always respectful to Al, and won 8 games with a lot of significant injuries. I unfortunately see this being a blow out game. As a season ticket holder, it pains me that I have to watch this crap or convince people to use my tickets. The jury is still out on McKenzie and Allen…

    For all the Lip service we got from BigMac and Junior about “a-z” evaluation, the status remains quo, whatever that means, basically the same ol’ shinola.

    Not just the same players, coaches, and schemes, but the ssame BS that we have been getting for as long as I can remember. So yes, on any given football day the dog may find his bone, but these dogs on the Raiders team can’t even find their own tail if it wags in their face.

    How could this team get so bad so quickly? Maybe BigMac and Junior are desperately trying to fit a square peg on the proverbial round hole, and they’re so bent on doing it their way that they’re destroying whatever progress was made by the team in the last two seasons.

    _________________
    we do have a guy playing his first game of the season that had 10 sacks last year and didn’t play the whole year so there’s reason for optimism and DMAC had over 100 v Pitt, doesn’t matter that most came on one run that’s how a lot of backs have days with over 100 yds plus Atlanta has a weak run d. No ones forcing you to watch the game by the way

  • raiderinparadise

    @Inonewordraider ……

    I agree, Carter is an impact player, has been his whole career, at the very least he helps the other rushers free-up to create beter pressure.

    I also think the zone coverage won’t be so blatanlty soft after 2 weeks of film review.

    McFadden is the best player on raiders whole roster and ATL giving up 5.4 a carry could mean our team gets rolling in the run game and everything else falls into place after that … pass attck/rested D/field position/points= win

  • DJ Johnny

    Full autonomy to take an 8-8 team with a roster basically still intact..in fact he’s gotten an upgrade with a healthy DMAC to work with.

    You don’t get many shots at being a HC in this league.

    We can debate (and will) whether the consecutive 8-8′s were a “mirage” or not, or whether we should take games away becuz Palmer was playing near his home in LaJolla, but it is what it is.

    If DA sees no reason to make any changes, he’ll have to suffer too…with mounting losses and all that goes with that. Which includes good luck with getting another HC gig.

    I don’t think he’s intentionally torturing us, but I wonder sometimes…

    But seriously, losing hurts him too. He’ll try and blame Al Davis like everyone else, but noone’s gonna buy it.

    Except alot of guys here.
