Pryor will be active, Seymour out, McFadden game-time decision

By Steve Corkran
Friday, November 30th, 2012 at 4:12 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he envisions second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor being one of the 46 players active for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
Defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring), defensive end Jack Crawford (toe) and linebacker Rolando McClain (suspended) will be among the seven players inactive for the game, Allen said.
Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are questionable as they continue their quest to return from high-ankle sprains suffered Nov. 4. Allen said both players will be game-time decisions.

– Allen said the decision to suspend McClain was his, though he consulted with general manager Reggie McKenzie.
Beyond that, Allen said he intends to keep to himself the details of what precipitated the two-game suspension.
“All I’ll say is that I met with Rolando this morning and informed him that I decided to suspend him for two games for conduct detrimental to the team,” Allen said. “That’s really all the details I have for you.”
When pressed, Allen said:
“I’m not going to get into any of the specifics of anything that happened, that went into the decision,” Allen said. “That’s team-related matters. We’re going to keep that within the family.”
McClain’s roster spot won’t be filled this week. Allen said he will decide whether to add a player for next Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.

– Quarterback Carson Palmer (thumb) took all the reps with the first-team offense today, and he is good to go for the Browns game, Allen said.
It remains unclear whether Pryor will get any action against the Browns and, if so, in what capacity.
Matt Leinart is the primary backup, with Pryor the No. 3.
“He needs to start getting some, what it feels like to suit up on game day and we’ll see if we play him in the game,” Allen said of Pryor.

    This is a repost from several days ago, but certainly worth revisiting to those who continue to blame Darrius Heyward-Bey for the Raiders’ passing game shortcomings. In the eyes of some of you, Denarius Moore is the prototypical wide receiver and should never be criticized for his mistakes, while Heyward-Bey draws your ire on a daily basis.

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

    It is utter nonsense that Darrius Heyward-Bey gets so much flak from you nincompoops. There’s nothing wrong with his talent, except that it is grossly underutilized. Hue Jackson always wanted Denarius Moore — a strong talent when he’s on the field – to be his #1 WR. He obviously put this notion into Carson Palmer’s head as well, as Palmer has consistently raved about Moore, despite Heyward-Bey making Palmer look very good at the end of last season to the tune of 40 or so receptions. Even as Moore remained on the sideline throughout training camp, Palmer still spoke of him glowingly, while all Heyward-Bey did was show up daily and, by all accounts, caught pretty much everything thrown his way.

    Once the real games started, Palmer all but ignored Heyward-Bey on the field and, when he does throw his way, the passes are often short — if not at his ankles — or in desperation when the game is already out of reach.

    As far as dropped passes, Heyward-Bey has dropped a few this season — two that I remember clearly. His omission from the offense might not have been a difference in our record, but it surely would make the team’s offense stronger. Below, I submit to the asinine — please do look this word up in the dictionary as it is blatantly apparent that a great many of you here match the description — those NFL players who have dropped the most passes this season. Note the two Raiders’ players on the list, and that one Raider who is not. Remember, before a player can drop the pass, he has to be THROWN the pass!

    I’d also like to see the link to the list mentioned earlier by the idiot who said the Raiders have THREE of the top 15 pass-droppers in the NFL.

    it’s funny how differently players can be seen by fans watching the same game.

    according to priest, wiz is “thinking too much” and not getting a good early “punch”, and it’s not due to strength. of course, all the experts think wiz’s strengths are thinking and getting a good initial punch and his weakness is poor strength and getting overpowered.

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

    Which is another reason I’m still half pissed that we didn’t take Maurkice Pouncey when we had the chance, and took McClain instead.

    If Kirk Morrrison wasn’t hot garbage the choice might have been easier, I suppose.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Yeah. Al passed on a lot of players.
    I really wanted Al to draft Alex Mack.

    McKenzie should have re-signed Satele until he knew positively that he had a great replacement.

    Wiz played great at LG last year but it’s still questionable whether Wiz has the size or strength to play center–a position that he barely played in college.
    As things stand, the OL is nowhere near as good as last year.

    Authorities received a call Saturday morning from a woman who said her daughter had been shot multiple times at a residence about five miles from the Arrowhead complex.

    “When we arrived, a lady informed us that her daughter had been shot multiple times by her boyfriend, by the daughter’s boyfriend,” Snapp said. “She identified him as a Chiefs player.”

    Snapp said a call was then received from the Chiefs’ headquarters.

    “The description matched the suspect description from that other address,” Sapp said. “We kind of knew what we were dealing with.” The player was “holding a gun to his head” as he stood in front of the front doors of the practice facility, he added.

    “And there were Pioli and Crennel and another coach or employee was standing outside and appeared to be talking to him,” Snapp said. “It appeared they were talking to the suspect. The suspect began to walk in the opposite direction of the coaches and the officers, and that’s when they heard the gunshot. It appears he took his own life.”

    The coaches told the police they never felt in any danger, Snapp said.

    “They said the player was actually thanking them for everything they’d done for him,” he said. “They were just talking to him and he was thanking them and everything. That’s when he walked away and shot himself.”

    I endured 2011 too. I saw those games. Not saying we have a SB roster. Not many teams do. Every organization has a roster full of deficiencies, including teams who are playing well, or division leaders. But you still have to do your best with what you have.

    In other words, the Raiders roster is not that less-talented than a lot of other teams, either below .500 or on or over .500 There’s no reason they shouldn’t be more competitive. Losing happens, and sometimes a blow out loss happens here and there.

    But that four game streak of getting pounded is inexcusable and points to a divide between players and coaches, lockerroom divide. Just saying Allen is justifiably on the hot-seat heading into 2013. And, if we keep getting pounded over the remaining games, Reggie would surely know it’s coaching.

    #829 and ref back to #767 -
    Sometimes, I think we Raider fans stand too close and don’t see the whole picture. For the last 10 years, at least, and more like 25 years, we’ve been subjected to sub-average rosters with few exceptions. Based on that standard, we’ve clutched at any straw thrown our way and have tended to elevate very average players and/or coaching to “savior” status.
    The 2011 Raiders were very exemplary of that. People on this forum talk up the 2011 Raiders like they were a player or two from the Super Bowl and like Hue Jackson was the 2011 coming of John Madden from 1976. It just wasn’t there, and it’s not there this year. I thought Reggie was very frank yesterday in talking about this year’s team with regard to its overall talent level and particularly with regard to its limitations in depth. A rise in overall team talent level and depth is coming.

    These folks in here want to cut every player THEY DOn’T LIKE. The first thing that flies out of their ignorant mouths is CUT him.

    Let me explain a few things to y’all who aren’t cognizant of it. Reggie played McClains position he played the position he knows what he’s looking at he knows what that player can and cannot do. He also knows whether or not the COACH is as much at fault as the player. Reggie said one thing that speaks volumns to me as a longtime Raider fan and this is what made me feel better about HIM as a GM. He said “this is my football team” I know to many it may seem simple or insignificant. But to me as a Raiders fan most of my life that speaks to my soul. He is taking ownership first and foremost he’s not shucking his responsibility to some coach who’s intentions may not jive with his.

    You see I’ve paid a lot of attention to DA since he’s been here and I just don’t like what I see. He seems too indifferent for my taste as if he’s saying ‘if I don’t make it here I can get another job no problem’. It’s not personal to him like it is to Reggie from where I sit. He can get rid of player doghoues players scapegoat players all he wants because it’s NOT personal to him. If it were left up to DA TP6 would be buried further down than he already is. The same is ture with TJ22 and others DA is not trying to win as much as he is trying to win with who he wants to win with if that makes sense. IOW ‘if I screw over a few players’ that is my perogative.

    Reggie served notice Friday he will not stand idolly by while this fool makes him look stupid. Because IMO taht is exactly what was happening it looked to me that Reggie was just allowing this guy to underdevelope talent based on some whim right or wrong. On top of that it seems Mark Davis was persona-non grata and I’m glad to see that that is NOT the case at all. But Reggie’s feet are being firmly held to the fire to get this fixed and stop with the freakin excuses laying blame at a dead man’s feet.

    This for me I’m not speaking for anyone other than myself but all this makes me as a Raider fan more interested in seeing how things turn out. Rather than just giving them all a middle finger salute and moving on. I’m not against Reggie taking over and doing his thing as long as it means something personal to him and not some job he has until he gets the next one. I aint for that crap one bit………if that is any of their hidden intentions stop getting rid of players and scapegoating them and get the hell out NNOOOOWWWW!!!
