Two added to injury report, one removed

The Raiders removed wide receiver Denarius Moore (hamstring) from the injury report Thanksgiving Day. That positive news was offset by running back Taiwan Jones (ankle) and defensive end Jack Crawford (toe) being added to the injury report.
Perhaps of more import, running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson and defensive tackle Richard Seymour didn’t practice once again.
If none of those three practices Friday, it’s very unlikely that any of them will play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, especially considering they haven’t played the past two games or practiced for almost three weeks.
The Raiders have an abbreviated practice Friday and then head to the airport for the flight to Cincinnait.

– Twenty seven players that were on the Raiders roster for the final regular-season game last season no longer are on the 53-man roster.
Wide receiver Jacoby Ford still is with the Raiders, though he is on season-ending injured reserve and doesn’t count on the 53-man roster.
Thirteen of those 27 players no longer are in the NFL. Thirteen are playing for other teams. Ford is the 27th.
Waiving veteran outside linebacker Aaron Curry was the latest purging of players from the roster that coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie inherited.

– A blown coverage by outside linebacker Miles Burris against the Saints that resulted in a touchdown by Saints tight end Jimmy Graham can be chalked up to a rookie mistake, coach Dennis Allen said.
That wasn’t Burris’ lone issue against the Saints as he learns on the job — Burris has started all 10 games this season.
Burris allowed eight receptions for 63 yards and one touchdown on the eight times he was targeted by Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus. Burris also missed two tackles.

– Allen isn’t making too much of the Raiders playing a game against a Bengals team that features his predecessor, Hue Jackson.
In fact, he hasn’t even mentioned anything to his players about the subject.
“We haven’t addressed it,” Allen said. “We’re playing the Cincinnati Bengals and we’ve got to worry about doing the things that we have to do to have success. We can’t worry about any of those outside distractions. And really, it’s not a major factor in the game. It’s going to be our players going out and our players executing against their team.”

– Allen has no issue with the schemes used by first-year defensive coordinator Jason Tarver. It’s on the players to do their part on a more consistent basis.
“It’s been the same the whole year,” Allen said, as far as his level of involvement in the defense. “We haven’t changed anything as far as how we call the games. I’ve been pleased with the play-calling, and we’ve just got to do a better job overall of getting the right execution.”

– 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith recorded 5 1/2 sacks against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. That total is half what the Raiders notched as a team their first 10 games.
For that paltry total to change much, Allen said, the Raiders need the defensive linemen tp play in concert, first and foremost.
“I don’t think we have the great speed rusher coming off the edge, like a lot of people do,” Allen said. “Our guys can rush the passer, and we’ve just got to work together and understand how to work together as a four-man rush.”
Better coverage by linebackers and defensive backs also can augment the pass rush.
“It’s a combination of pass rush and pass coverage,” Allen said. “We’ve got to do a better job of winning our one-on-ones, whether that be in coverage or whether that be in the rush, and those things work together. It really comes down to individual battles and we’ve got to win more individual battles.”

    The Raiders could easily lose to both Cleveland and Carolina.

    I can see us splitting those, but not losing both.

    If we run the board and LOSE to everyone of those teams, we might as well become the Seattle Supersonics and sell ourselves and brand to some yee-haws in Oklahoma, and cease to exist.

    What is so wrong about the “Edge rusher” comment from coach?

    Do you think Houston and Matt S see themselves as speed rushers? Not at all.

    Are Tollefson and Andre Carter going to stop giving max effort? I would ask when did they start giving max effort?

    If we beat either Cleveland or Carolina, it will all but assure us of not being in the top 3, even if we lose the other 5 games.

    It’s possible Raiders lose to Cleveland. Cleveland will come and play the Raiders tough. Raiders will probably just win two more game if anything. Browns and KC….maaaaaaaybe.

  • Macho Man Randy Savage

    I’m projecting 6 or 7 new starters on D net year. Something like: 2 DTs, a speed DE, a MLB maybe a WLB, 2 CBs, and a S.

    In other words we keep one DE, one LB, one S… wow. This D sucks.

    All the other 5+ year vets (Seymour, Carter, Bartell, Spencer, Giordano, Hanson, etc)

    That is exaggeration. the Raiders were in the 2003 SB, then had SEVEN seasons of losing…bad… but 7 is not decade and then things started to look better with the consecutive 8-8’s.

    Ok then. We have had 10 years of not winning.

    Thanks. I feel better now.

    Minus KC they have all played better than the Raiders recently.

  • mcfadden20.

    It’s funny when people say this team is done playing for DA, was last years team done playing for Hue after 11 games? thus 1-4 in last 5 games, even that lone win came after Sey blocked the game winning KC FG, this team is not done playing for DA, this team is just so over-matched against good teams , hence we lose in blowouts and it looks like they’re not playing hard but that’s not the case, it just looks like Alabama playing against DIII team

    If McK wants to truly rebuild, then he needs to stop dancing around the issue and just trade DMC to Jets or Cowboys for a 2nd and a 4th in this years draft and get a 2nd in next years draft and get his valuable “picks”.

    Raiders go from playoff contender to also-ran in first year of new regime
    Published November 20, 2012
    Associated Press
    ALAMEDA, Calif. – When the new regime took over the Oakland Raiders last January, they inherited an 8-8 team that fell one game shy of the playoffs, featuring an offense that could be prolific at times and a defense that was historically bad.

    Ten games into the first season under general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen, the offense has taken a decided step backward, the defense has somehow regressed and the Raiders (3-6) are nowhere near being a playoff team.

    The situation McKenzie and Allen entered was not an easy one despite the presence of a capable quarterback in Carson Palmer, a big-play running back in Darren McFadden and a handful of other playmakers on both sides of the ball. But the early returns have not been positive.

  • Raider E

    These guys were suppossed to be 5-5 right now going into Cincy then back home for 3 in a row down the stretch.

    If Denver didn’t have the crowd manning is gonna draw I doubt the Raiders totaled 100,000 paying fans for all 3 games.

    At least you season ticket holders don’t have to juggle family and football this holiday season.

    Not like you have recently anyway….

    If McK wants to truly rebuild, then he needs to stop dancing around the issue and just trade DMC to Jets or Cowboys for a 2nd and a 4th in this years draft and get a 2nd in next years draft and get his valuable “picks”.

    The way to get the picks he wants, is to ask for high picks and work you way down from there. McK should say to Jets and Dallas, give us a 1st this year and a 3rd for DMC and then they will refuse and counter and if McK can get a 2nd and 4th in this years draft and a 2nd in next years draft for DMC, then that would be a win IMO.
