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.

    Easier said than done, this team has no pass rusher, you can’t beat teams in this passing league with no pass rusher, schemes don’t matter when you can’t put pressure on qb’s

    —————————-

    Hue knew the glaring problems and needs. This new regime did not. They just had a pipe dream they wanted to force feed onto the players. It failed before, and it has failed again. The should have built around personel, fixed the obvious with a pass rush and kept Bush. They didn’t.

    Hue Jackson should have stayed. If for nothing else, simply because he had the Raider heart that gave him the passion and love for this team. Sometimes that is the one thing that helps you win games. He was clearly not only the coach of this team, but also a fan. There’s no way to know, but I think he would have given his heart and soul to this team this year, and we would be playoff bound. WIth a decent DC of course.

    When did this blog become less about discussing the Raiders and more about insulting everyone who disagrees with you? Or has it always been this way?
    ===================================

    It’s basically always been that way. One thing about the ant-Allen camp is it is not like he took over a 12-4 team that got to the AFC Championship Game the year before and turned them into this. He took over a team that was O for its last 5, errrr, 1 for it’s last 5. A coin flip got Huey to playing .200 ball. Allen has got his team playing .300 ball. That’s improvement I guess.

    Yeah. It was a dumb decision to get rid of him after only 1 year as head coach and 1 as OC. The passion, energy and continuity was there and Hue brought it.

    Was the heck does DA, Knapp, Tarver and Hoffman bring?

    Big Wiz saw the BS and cut out.

    ————–

    Understand this Mc20, Offense makes your Defense better by default just go back to our 2002 SB team, our D was bad then too and guess who the DC was? Chuck B. But our O was so good and we sustained those long drives our D stayed fresh and just had to hang on and thats what they did more times than not.

    —-
    That’s not the case, they just simply had more talent on that side, if O’s really helped Ds out that much, then why were both NE and GB ranked in the bottom 15 in D categories last year?
    ——————–

    Once again you miss the point, just imagine if GB and NE O’s were garbage how bad would their D’s be then. But since the O keeps them off the field they can stay in the middle of the pack.


    OK 29:47 ATOP 29th ranked D

    I recognized this in the beginning of the season when he said that all teams were going to be viewed equally, when asked about the rivalries in the AFC W, specially him coming from Denver. I thought to myself, oh no, there goes the competitiveness and emotion needed to play in those games.

    Denver, SD and KC sure play us differently than other teams. You can see it and feel it through the TV! It used to be that way with us, but this year, they seem to not care enough about division rivalries.

    If they only win 4-5 games again next year, with that same staff….I can see McK furing him after next season.

    I would take Andy Reid or even Jay Gruden as head coach over DA and some of this crappy staff any day of the week.

    The players are playing hard, there is no doubt about that. (Other than McFadden but why is that not a shock). It’s just that we don’t have the horses. Our interior triangle on the Oline is getting their collective asses kicked, we have no, none, nunka pass rush, McClain has turned into well, McClain, and Mike Mitchell just let guys do the sugar dance right past him into the endzone with the game still in hand. Kind of hard to fire Dennis Allen because of that.

LMAO, this was funny as hell , keep em coming

  • GreatWhiteRaider

    I have nothing against Hue, if he was retained, fine. He was canned, not a big deal, easily replaceable.

    Let’s be honest with ourselves, where else was he a candidate to ever be hired/promoted? Nowhere. With all due respect, he was the classic stooge, lackie that Al would hire. As a HC, he was a great OC, know what I mean? He did a solid job all things considered, but to lament his departure is just a little bit misguided IMO. If this season were even approaching a level of decency, I don’t think there’d be one word about Hue mentioned/typed?

    The mistake/tragedy made with reference to Hue is that Al Saunders wasn’t utilized to continue the offense. That has made everything worse. Perception and in reality.

    Out of all the moves the new regime have made, that is THE head scratcher. It was so unecessary and it’s affected everything in a negative way.

    - even if McFadden wasn’t in the long-term plans, his trade value has been destroyed now.
    - Palmer, McFadden and other capable players on the offense transition between confused, lost and desperate. It’s almost sad to watch.
    - no sustainable drives, no red zone conversions settling for FGs, exposing further an already sub standard defence by having them on the filed too much, too often.

    Whether he intended to or not, Reggie turned a team in transition into a complete rebuild. This was a renovation job, not a tear down.

    Reggie still has my support and I think he’ll knock it out of the park in the next few drafts building up depth. The current roster will get pillaged even more and DA gets at least another season with new guys.

    Having said that, if the rest of the season goes in the same manner that the last 3 games have gone…..how can the organization not hold some coaches/coordinator accountable for that?

    I agree. The bad news: the team is absolutely married to Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen. The good news, the team is not married to Hoffman, Knapp or Tarver.

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

    Yea, he was a media whore. True. But I would trade that for the passion and Offense he brought each sunday anyday. I think it was all part of the package. His one mistake was to try and include himself in the GM decision making, to the extent of hinting at himself filling that position. But other than that, he was ok with me. Gruden, to a lesser extent, was a media whore too.

  • DKnight007

    I can see Jay Gruden winding up in Philly also.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    1. RaiderRockstar…

    I already re-corrected you about the DL. The DL starters are essentially the same as last season. (RDE)-Kelly-Seymour-Houston. Wauffle, like an excellent position coach, was able to get more out of that same group.

    2. Browns, Chiefs, Panthers, and Chargers…

    These teams are playing far better than the Raiders. Browns have been ultra-competitive for one, and would probably embarrass us, further icing the cake on the state of the Raiders under RM/DA/Knapp/Tarver. Chiefs maybe a win. Panthers have lost a lot of close games against good opponents. We get destroyed by them. Chargers love to kick us when we’re down, like last season.

    3. David Shaw…

    The only reservation with the idea of hiring Shaw as HC? We’ll go thru the same thing as this year, a rookie HC hiring his own staff, and if things go pear-shaped early, possibility of excuses being made etc, and then the fans will smell blood and tear him apart too. Gruden would make the most sense for us on many levels.

    Its really simple but I see you like to complicate things. Indy’s D was never great but because of Manning and his O they were able to overcome their D woes, same can be said of the Rams greatest show on turf, same with NE the past few years.simple.

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

    Way back in High School, I asked a female friend if she’d ever used a Epilady. She described it as “having your hair ripped out with a hot soldering iron.”

    If DA were to walk the plank, Reggie needs to hire an experienced guy with a proven, successful track record. I love Chucky (still have my Nike pullover and sun visor!) but maybe a guy like Mike Holmgrenn would be a good fit? The era of the low budget stooge needs to come to an end in Oakland.

    Reggie is new at his job, he is probably very busy dealing with creating a front office adminstrative structure, getting rid of typewriters, overhead projectors, Commodore 64s and Vic20s and replacing them with modern office equipment.

    Just for the record, I loved Al Davis, but I can just as easily admit that he hung on too long and the Raiders suffered for it. Instead of trading Chucky in 2002, he should have taken a step back and handed the keys over to him and Bruce Allen.

    yeah like Hue could have brought us M Williams on 2M per year contract LMAO

    *************************************

    Not saying that, but who ever he had with his new bona-fide DC woulda coached up who ever they had. This coaching staff has mailed it in while throwing the players under the bus. It aint right.


    OMG LMAO COACHED UP ? REALLY ? IF THAT WAS SO Easy to coach up anyone why does NYG always keep on drafting DE in first rd , why did DEN drafted Von MIller with #2 over-all pick when they could have coached up anyone who could have gotton 15 sacks a year, why did Buffalo throw about 100 M on WIlliams if they could have coached up anyone , Why did Den went out and gave P Manning 20 million a year, when they could have gotten a FA QB for about half a million and coached him up ? LMAO, this was funny as hell , keep em coming
    —————

    Whats really funny is your lack of football knowledge. you expose yourself daily on this blog with your asinine comments and that one you just made is another in a long line of dumb comments. you under estimate good coaching period.

    – MY LACK of football knowledge ? LMAO

    Read this and tell me who really lacks knowledge

    Once again you miss the point, just imagine if GB and NE O’s were garbage how bad would their D’s be then. But since the O keeps them off the field they can stay in the middle of the pack.


    OK 29:47 ATOP 29th ranked D
    NE 28:32 ATOP 15th ranked D
    GB 30.28 ATOP 19th ranked D

    – something doesn’t add up
    ————-

    Adds up perfectly, NE and GB are in the middle of the pack because they have good O’s Oak is at the bottom of the pack because our O is garbage.

    But you said they keep them off the field ? which leads to Ds having better statistics, but both GB and Oak averaged more time than NE yet still lower D rankings

    If you are going by points scored which led to better D rankings

    LOL you continue to show your lack of knowledge, all I said was that Great O’s overcome mediocre D, for exp our own 2002 Raiders D was avg but the O was elite thus SB contenders simple, and so are you.

    I don’t like to complicate things and lets begin with this first, with Hue we were not going to be anywhere near the level of Manning O’s and Rams “greatest show on turf” not with 40% of Mcfadden, not with this young receiving corp with no #1 receiver and 2nd our D was the worst of all time so unless Hue managed to get our O better than both of those teams , (which has no chance with this group) , then we might have had won those games , Comprehend ? nO?

    FIrst you need to fact check buddy you keep getting exposed over and over, 2002 Raiders D was # 6 in PPG allowed, and yes great O’s overcome mediocre D’s but this D is beyong Mediocre, it’s just plain Pathetic, and we were not going to be anywhere near great Offensive team with Hue, but yeah for sure i could have seen them average about 3 more points a game

    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.

    Nobody said we were gonna be any one of those teams Mcdummy20 but Hue had us on that path and the O would be pretty explosive under Hue this year imo just based on his past and with CP3 in his O for a whole season, sky WAS the limit.

    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
