McFadden and Seymour not practicing once again

Another day of practice, another day without running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson and defensive tackle Richard Seymour.
The trio missed all three practices this week, same as the previous two weeks. Therefore, it seems a foregone conclusion that coach Dennis Allen in an hour or so will declare all three as out for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
McFadden (ankle), Goodson (ankle) and Seymour (hamstring) missed the past two games. Allen said they are making progress, but he isn’t sure when any of them might heal enough to return to practice and play in a game.
Rookie defensive end Jack Crawford also is not practicing. He suffered a toe injury Wednesday and missed the past two practices.
On the bright side, strong safety Tyvon Branch (neck) and running back Taiwan Jones (ankle) made it through another practice without any apparent lingering effects from their injuries.
For now, it appears as if Marcel Reece, Jones and rookie Jeremy Stewart will handle the running back duties for a third straight game.
Desmond Bryant will take the bulk of Seymour’s snaps Sunday if Seymour isn’t able to play.

– The Raiders will wrap up practice in about 45 minutes or so. At that time, Allen will address the media and likely announce which players won’t be available for the Bengals game.
It’s also possible that Allen will shed some more light on what he intends to do with the vacancy he has on the 53-man roster. The spot freed up when the Raiders waived linebacker Aaron Curry.
Allen said the Raiders might fill the spot by signing one of the eight players on their practice squad. They went that route two weeks ago when they signed Stewart.

– Curry cleared waivers, as expected. He now is a free agent and available to sign with any team, including the Raiders.
It’s a stretch to envision the Raiders re-signing Curry, given they already had him under contract and got to see him play the past two games.
However, anything is possible, and the Raiders likely could get him back at very little cost. Then again, they’re already on the hook for paying him the remainder of what he is due this season as part of his previous contract.

    A good coach should be able to make up for underachieving players by implementing a scheme that helps hide their weaknesses and bring forth their strengths. At the same time though, a coach can only do so much with the talent he has, at some point, the coaching stops and the execution begins.

    Explain how do they hide the lack of pass rush? put 11 in coverage? LMAO

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

    If you really read what I said, you would understand that I was in part agreeing with you. Thought it was pretty self explanatory.

    Besides, why would you put 11 in coverage when you are trying to improve your pass rush? Wouldn’t you do the opposite and try to rush more people to the QB?

    Like seriously you don’t even fact check sh1t , you said 2002 D was average but it was ranked # 6 overall , # 3 Against the run, is that average? I don’t think so , just goes to show that you know nothing about football , just like to talk sh1t out of your ass
    —————-

    Like I said Mcdummy20 they were avg, only reason they were ranked that high was because they were hardly on the field and we still managed to have a few nail bitters that season, you continue to show your lack of knowledge stats can be misguiding sometimes Mcdummy20, like the year we were #1 against the pass but dead last against the run.

    It would make sense. Pay the money to secure an experienced coach like Gruden or Reid to work with McK, which would be a good tandem.

    But I think Mark Davis is setting this up, so he can sell a stake of Raiders to investors to build a stadium in LA or investors who can get it done here in Oakland for a new stadium
    ====================================================
    Al was the organization pretty much (that was both good and bad) so for someone who is a 1st time GM, that’s a big vacuum for Reggie to fill. An experienced HC would take a lot of pressure off of him to focus on the front office stuff.

    I think Mark Davis is genuine about making the Raiders a decent organization. I was motivated by him saying “he doesn’t know” and that’s why he’s hiring Reggie. Not too many Owners have the self-confidence to admit that. Hire quality football people and let them do their job. Really hope Reggie was the right guy.

    I kinda have a bad feeling about LA myself. At first I would have bet: Rams/Chargers moving, then JAX/CAR kinda franchises. But I think that with Al gone, the NFL would love to have the Raiders back in LA for marketing, money making.

    The more I look at it, Mark might find the grind of being an Owner too much, couple that with some soulless business entity offering him zillions….he might just say YES and accept?

    And in LA, I’m gonna guess that an NFL stadium gets built at Chavez Ravine and the Dodgers move downtown. Just a hunch. Hopefully Frank McCourt is never involved directly/indirectly with the Raiders…but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves.
