McFadden, Goodson, Seymour not practicing

As expected, running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson, as well as defensive tackle Richard Seymour, are not practicing today. That makes it more likely that they won’t be available for the Baltimore Ravens game.
Coach Dennis Allen has not rueld out any of the aforementioned trio. He said he won’t make any definitive statements along those lines until Friday, at the earliest.
Still, this has the look of second-year running back Taiwan Jones getting his first extensive action since he arrived via the NFL draft last season.
Jones has touched the ball on offense two times this season. He was part of a botched reverse in the regular-season opener on a play that resulted in a 25-yard loss after fullback Marcel Reece’s pitch was mishandled by Jones. In fairness, Reece’s exhange wasn’t very smooth.
Jones rushed once for 2 yards late in the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. Beyond that, Jones returned one kick for 6 yards against the Chargers in the opener and caught a pass for 4 yards on a fake punt against the Buccaneers.
Jones rushed for 73 yards on 16 carries last season, when he was behind McFadden and Michael Bush.

– Linebaacker Aaron Curry and cornerback Ron Bartell look at full strength in practice today. Curry was activated to the 53-man roster Tuesday. Bartell can be activated Saturday.
As for now, it appears as if Bartell will be activated and play Sunday. He missed the past seven games while recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in the opener.
It looks as if Bartell will play right cornerback, with Michael Huff remaining at the left cornerbacak spot. If so, Joselio Hanson likely will remain in the slot on passing downs, with Pat Lee and Phillip Adams seeing reduced snaps.
Cornerback Shawntae Spencer is the only other player unable to practice today. Therefore, it looks as if he is in line to miss his seventh straight game. He hurt his foot against the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 16 and hasn’t practiced or played in a game since that day.

– Allen still hasn’t tipped his hand on whether he intends to start Willie Smith, Khalif Barnes or rookie Tony Bergstrom at right offensive tackle Sunday.
Smith has started the past six games there in relief of the injured Barnes. However, Barnes returned to practice Wednesday, and he looks ready to go.

    32 is hardly an ‘advanced’ age for a QB. He isn’t a running back.
    ==============

    palmer has taken a beating his knee and elbow come to mind.

    32 is an advanced age for football players regardless of position excluding kickers.

    rarely do athletes in any sport sign big extensions at this age, because there is a finite shelf life.

    he may be fortunate enough to perform until he is in his mid or late 30′s but the front office cant afford to wait and see, they need an insurance policy.

    Most athletes qbis included peak in their mid to lat 20′s then begin the slow staedy decline after 30.

    Guys like moon, farve, elway marino and so on are the exception not the norm and that is why they are hall of fame players.

    palmer? lets just say there is no guarantee that he will be able to match the level of play at the same age as the above, and for this a bck up plan must be hatched the groomed.

    JC 3-8 when RB went under 100 rushing yards
    9-2 when a RB went over 100 yards rushing

    do the math and figure out who really contributed the most the running backs , who killed the time by running over DT’s and also killing the the time in process , or JC’s measly 175 yards per game passing and 1 TD per game average

    i think your cd is skipping

    he is suggesting that anyone that wants to see pryor play this season is “radical”

    Therefore the very idea of pryor playing this season is in itself ‘radical” according to this known palmer worshiper and propaganda agent.

    he is attaching a negative connotation to both pryor and his supporters with this slick usage of words.

    You cant be this dumb

    hey mistic–

    MV: Carson Palmer was a pain in Baltimore’s you-know-what when he was with the Cincinnati Bengals. He has been with the Raiders for a little over a year now and appears to be settling in. How do you think he has played this season and what is the offense’s ceiling with him under center?

    JM: Palmer could end up setting a Raiders passing yardage record this season, but that was never the plan. The hope was they’d be one of the top rushing teams in the NFL, instead they’re one of the worst. The Raiders’ 3-5 record is not impressive, but without Palmer, one of several quarterbacks they’ve had since Rich Gannon, they’d be 0-8. He makes one throw per game that makes you scratch your head, but has been very good at bringing the Raiders from behind in the fourth quarter.

    as u have seen repeatedly, nobody here, excluding priest thinks u have any football knowledge, and no nfl brass feel anything close to what u feel.

    but of course we all knew that anyway.

    btw, our golden haired hero is awesome isn’t he?

  • dr_robert

    Even with healthy running backs, execution and game circumstance have made quarterback Carson Palmer the Raiders’ most indispensable player.

    Whatever roles Jones and Reece have in the backfield Sunday, any chance the Raiders have of beating the 6-2 Baltimore Ravens on the road rest with Palmer doing what he does best against a team he beat nine times in 13 starts as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.

    “I don’t fear any quarterback, but I’m always worried when I play Carson Palmer,” Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said Wednesday by conference call. “We came from the same draft class. We played him at USC when I was at Arizona State, so this guy’s kind of tortured me through all my college and professional career.”

    With McFadden struggling even when healthy, the Raiders have become a pass-first team through necessity.

    Palmer has 2,355 yards passing at the midway point of the season, a pace that would give him a franchise record of 4,710 yards over 16 games. That’s more
    than Rich Gannon’s 4,689 yards in 2002, the year he won the Most Valuable Player award.

    With 13 touchdown passes at the midway point, Palmer is on pace for Gannon’s 26 touchdown passes as well.

  • dr_robert

    Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters in Baltimore Palmer looks much the same as he did with the Bengals when he was beating the Ravens.

    “Some of the same things he did in Cincinnati, he’s doing now,” Harbaugh said. “There’s not a throw he can’t make, and when he’s on, he’s on time. He can really stick it in tight windows. He’s a fearless competitor. You watch him play with a tremendous enthusiasm out there. We’ve got a lot of respect for Carson Palmer.”

    1. no one has claimed palmer “is the only problem”.

    2. it is a comomn practice for teams to sit the incumbent at the end of a losing season to give the youngsters game reps, at all positions. There is ‘radical” or ‘outside the box” about it. it happens every single year in nfl cities.

    first of all, moron, ur thinking of baseball. nfl teams DO NOT sit everyone at all positions to play the youngsters, including qb’s.
