Allen on McClain: ‘There’s going to be consequences to his actions’

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, November 29th, 2012 at 3:11 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen was peppered with questions about middle linebacker Rolando McClain on Thursday. To little avail. Allen offered little insight into what precipitated McClain missing practice the past two days and vowed to remain tight-lipped.
Allen did say that the Raiders asked McClain to stay away from practice today, and McClain complied. Beyond that, not much else other than the fact that “there’s going to be consequences to his actions.”
What those actions were, Allen wouldn’t say.
“We have to make a decision, and I really don’t want to get into the details of what we’re going to do,” Allen said.
When pressed, Allen said the decision will be an organizational one, meaning owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie will be involved on some level.
Allen said he spoke with McClain today and that McClain was not present at the team’s facility in Alameda. McClain still is on the team’s 53-man roster.
Someone asked Allen if it wouldn’t just be in the team’s best interest to get things over with and waive McClain sooner rather than later. And whether letting the situation linger sends the wrong signal.
“I’m not sure what signal anybody’s looking for,” Allen said. “We’re going to make a decision, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
McClain could not be reached for contact.

    1st! GO RAIDERS.

    If the raiders trade back. Love the DION JORDAN pick. Scouts compare him to Aldon smith.

    btw Aldon smith had 5.5 sacks his final year in college.

    its clear DA and Rolando got into a shouting match.. why else would mcclain go cry on facebook on how he was done with the team?

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Yep.

    As I posted earlier the Raiders may very well be pulling a Lance Kiffin or Mike Vick and trying to get some of their money back. It now seems painfully apparent that McClain was PURPOSEFULLY doing nothing out there and being insubordinate. I don’t know if he is going to another NFL team any time soon.

    McClains agent has wisely told him to STFU and get his guns out of the house and car.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I will say this about Tyrann Mathieu. Raiders need playmakers in the worst way on D. Ya he smoked.. So did Randy Moss and Tim Lincecum. You just gotta tell him to chill on that ish.

    Raiders brought in a bunch of Front office guys suppose to mentor these players. Reggie took a chance on Brandon Underwood who did 3x worse then Tyrann.

    Ya he is 5ft 9 175 pounds.. but he could add 15 pounds to his frame. Brandon flowers is a pro bowl player and not that big.

    JOSELIO HANSEN has been playing well for the Raiders. In two years of play Tyrann did it all. PUNT RETURNER, INTS, 11 forced fumbles and was a HEISMAN FINALIST.

    Enough guys like Giordano, or COye francies, Philip adams crap.

    Only if he’s available in a later round. The Raiders need DL and OL picks first. If Tyrann is available in the 4th or 5th, sure, take a flyer on him.

    On 95.7 they are talking about Alex Smith as a Raider QB. Almost everyone who has called in would rather have Palmer.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Toddy Mcshay says Tyrann with be early 4th rounder or later 3rd. I can see someone like the lions using an early 3rd on him.

    College football live said he was last weighin in at 177 in the spring practices. He can easily get to 190. No doubt he will bulk up.. He is not DVD gonna stay at the same weight. TYRANN is not afraid to tackle either.. he gonna be going at them ankles. He had no problem taking down Cam Newton when he was at Auburn

    Joselio Hanson is 5ft 9 185 pounds. Dude has been a good player for the Raiders in the slot.

    Crazy the refs didnt give him that play in the bengal game. Not to mention didnt everyone here love STERLING MOORE? the guy was 5ft 9 185 pounds and didnt have half the college career as Tyrann did.

  • LA to TheBay

    Leave him in limbo for a week, suspend him last 4 games of season with no pay. Sounds great.

    What’s the problem, Nation?

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I heard an actually good caller. RAIDER DEE said SMITH is more suited for the Rollouts.. and WEST COAST system then Palmer. He would shred the D up with that offense.

    Carson gonna get 16 million dollars next year. Thats alot of a qb that cant even scramble for a 1st down every once in a while

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    The honey badger was one of the best defensive players in college football during the 2011 season. He was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and had a massive impact for the Tigers. Mathieu plays much bigger than his measurements, and anyone who watched LSU the past two seasons can’t help but see that he is a pure football player with off-the-charts instinct.

    Mathieu led the Tigers in tackles last year with 76. The sophomore also had 7.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, six forced fumbles, two interceptions and nine passes broken up. LSU lined him up as an outside corner, slot corner and safety. He was very dangerous in the slot. Additionally, Mathieu served as a punt returner in 2011, averaging 16 yards per return with two brought back for touchdowns.

    The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder was a dynamic playmaker for the Tigers since Day 1. As a freshman, Mathieu compiled 57 tackles with 8.5 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, two interceptions, seven passes broken up and two interceptions. ”

    Via walterfootball. I’ll leave it up to u guys if u would want him as a RAIDER

    Seeing JOSELIO play this year makes me think he can do it. JOSELIO man’d up on that play against a 6ft 2 WR Sanu.. got the forced fumble too.

    No problem…IF that’s really the plan. I think the problem is we’re in limbo too. We just wanna know “The Plan” but we won’t. It ain’t how sh*t works in this business……Always speculating

  • Priesttj12

    There’s some serious tsuff going down at Harbor Bay parkway. DA must of been socked in the face, and boy do I hope so for feeding the raider Nation this garbage every week.

    There should be consequences for his actions too. This 3-8 record with no hope of getting better. Doghousing players and now scapegoating player for their poor ass leadership bad loses. Dumbass decision making what about consequences for that?

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    I don’t’ see Smith as much of an upgrade over Palmer.

  • raiderzmaverick

    He probably just told Dennis Allen “I’m the one telling you the way it is” and then proceeded to explain how even Bresnehan was a better defensive coach than him and that he wouldn’t know how to be a Head Coach if it hit him in the arse.

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    Hue Jackson should have suspended McClain. He was too chicken sh*t to do it, though.

    Apparently, DA has a pass for at least the next two years, then you’ll be able to hold him accountable for his incompetence.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I think ROLANDO shoved DA.. or told him to STFU and Foff. something to that effect. I wouldnt be suprised if Rolando put handz on DA.

    Either way there should actual be some type of “REPORTERS” there doing some invistigating type work.

    Dont just let the national media get the scoop.. cmon. I want the local beat writers to get some action.

    I heard that. One of those callers was saying he would be better-suited for the WCO than Palmer. He was the only one I heard that liked the idea.

    I definitely am against it. I don’t like the idea of Palmer making $13 million next year, but I’d take that over a re-visit of the Jason Campbell days.

    I’d be suprised if Rolando was able to put his hands on anyone. DA only needs a slight juke move.

    Well remember Russell’s exit?

    “Yeah, Jamarcus had a good practice, threw the ball well….made improvements…yata yata yata”

    The next day BAAAM…..Released.

    We know Romac isn’t playing Sunday. We’re already ahead of the curve in terms of knowing ANYTHING.

  • The Mack

    Dysfunction function, that’s how the raiders function. Lol Haha it’d be funny if the raiders haven’t released McClain because it was DA’s idea to waive him but Mark stepped in like, wait DA’s not gonna be here at the season and vetoed it. Lol Why else keep McClain after all of this? May be a sign DA is on his way out.

  • The_Judge37

    Reports say McClain threatened Dennis Allen by telling him he’d be waiting to beat him up in the parking lot. Luckily for DA, McClain was waiting in the wrong parking lot

  • Priesttj12

    If he slapped that sissy he only did what everybody else wants to. I think this will hasten DA’s exist as well. At least I hope the hell so. Sick of that fool every Monday can’t explain what he’s seeing and how to fix it. We see the same garbage every week.

  • raiderzmaverick

    DA will be here next season, but any coach not smart enough to fit a scheme to maximize the use of his players shouldn’t be a coach in an important coordinator or HC position.

    You have to be creative, adaptive etc. Otherwise, if you don’t have the right personnel for your scheme you believe in you belly flop like we’re doing.

  • Raiderbuck

    If McClain doesn’t want to be here and every indications says he doesn’t, get rid of him. They are only waiting to figure out the money. They smartly don’t want to be on the hook for all that money next year.
