Statement from Raiders on Chiefs tragedy

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, December 1st, 2012 at 11:22 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Oakland Raiders are empathizing with the Chiefs organization. Our hearts are wounded by such an unimaginable tragedy in our NFL family. We will continue to pray for everyone involved.

    ah toto. they pretty much sucked. but they had a few catchy little pop records. they were a bunch of session musicians so they could play, but they were fairly generic. i always preferred “rosanna”, which was about rosanna arquette, the guitarists girlfriend.

  • mcfadden20.

    The fight would have happened wether they were losing or winning , it was all started by that Bengal player, maybe it would have involved less players (that’s anyone’s guess, and I don’t think Houston took Dalton to ground on purpose and it wasn’t even that bad of a tackle for sh1tworth to get mad at and walk from 20 feet away to attack Houston

  • mcfadden20.

    The Raiders can’t miss with their 1st pick and they should do anything to get a 2nd rd pick and they could get FS, CB , MLB, or another DL with that, third could be used on a C/RT , 4th on D again, 5th on O, 6th and 7th can be used on high risk, high reward player

    In some mock drafts and other sites, Damontre Moore is moving ahead of Jarvis Jones as the best pass rusher in the draft

  • dr_robert

    ride like the wind

  • mcfadden20.

    Damontre Moore can do it all, which fits in perfectly with the multiple D scheme our coaching staff have decided to use

  • mcfadden20.

    He was OLB in 3-4 scheme used by Texas A&M last year, he’s DE in 4-3 this year and have lined up as an ENd and OLB in 3-4 plays, pretty good against both pass and run games

  • dr_robert

    the good news is that this draft is heavy at DE/OLB at the top, so if rggie decides to go that way, one of jones, moore, or mingo will likely be there.

    the problem is, that without a 2nd rounder, we have to make that first pick a good one, cuz then we have to wait until the 3rd and start getting players like bergstrom. decent guys but not necessarily game changers immediately.

  • mcfadden20.

    He’s looking more and more like a top 5 pick now , I’m little torn between Raiders winning and missing out on some game changers and Raiders tanking the season in order to draft high and get the player they want, I want the Raiderz to win and on the other hand want a great pass rusher on the D side

    Just say no to Mingo , he’s like Wimbley , pretty much dips his shoulder on every play, Jones could be valuable if your team got good enough run stuffers and you can ask Jones to make plays in pass game that’s when he’s really good

  • mcfadden20.

    Jones could be an absolute beast in passing game but just not sure what he’s going to do against the run game, D Moore could do it all and never takes any plays off

  • The Mack

    @post 892 damn when you put it that way i kinda feel sorry for ole DA myself, but then again he’s a grown man and he’s getting paid a king’s ransom to handle pressure like this… hey they fired a guy who’d just come off a .500 season so he should of known expectations were high…

    As far as Toto goes, I love this song by them the most ;)

  • mcfadden20.

    I think they were wrong to fire Cable, the guy went 8-8 and ended the season on a good run, which is why we started off good going into 2011, Hue went 1-4 last 5 games and obviously it carried over to this season

    @Mc20 i was a cable fan too, big time! He had the guys playing hard with heart and he kept his mack hand strong. Lol “The cable guy!” Him and hue a good combination, and ialso liked john Marshall as Dc, hes looking like buddy ryan after how awful Tarver and bresnahan have proven to be.

    Lmao, I haven’t played madden in awhile since my HDMI cable messed up, it was funny guys thought i was playing as RAIDERS because of the speed on the team and never played against me, even though i never liked playing with another team, there’s just something with the Raiders that just make you fall in so much with Raiders.

    Yeah i actually felt really bad for Cable , only time started hating Al D so much, even after i forgave him for all his record setting years from 2003- 09

    pass rush is the biggest need. and DT’s can be gotten in later rounds or thru FA much easier.

    pass rushers, corners, left tackles, and qb’s. and rb’s. those are the premium positions.

    I never would give a second thought to “Toto” as something more than elevator music or dentist office background noise, but that song from a musical arrangement, lyrical, instrumental and vocal standpoint is a freaking masterpiece.

    =====

    Toto was an interesting band. They were a group of super talented studio musicians that all played on other people’s stuff. They decided to put their skills together and see what they could do to make some real money, and turned out that they could crank out some serious pop. As a musician, when you listen to what’s going on, it’s fairly high skill stuff.

    FWIW, my first legit girlfriend loved their first hit Hold The Line, so that song always has a special spot in my memory. That was when I was like 13, so I guess that kinda dates me too :-)

    Have you checked our sacks total this year? there are like 3-4 guys with more sacks than our team total , so we need pass rush really bad, unless we can get JJ watts or warren sapp who can attack from inside, we need to draft a legit pass rushing DE

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoi_wwzbtQ Zymurge

    On my week 13 Raiders prediction, I’m boldly going to say that the McClain suspension is going to light a fire under the defense’s butt. They’ll play decent enough for Palmer and the offense to win in a minor shootout. It won’t hurt that Weeden still has some cobwebs in his skull from his concussion, and will be looking less than sharp.

    Raiders 31, Browns 27

    Pass rushing is 2nd after QB according to recent drafts

    Hold the Line I’ve got posted above in one of my Madden video highlights.

    Btw, my inspiration for those videos was seeing so many video highlights of college players put to the music of gangsta rap or heavy metal, and I always thought there are actually a number of classic songs out there that would so work with player highlights.

    So “ride like the wind” and “send me an angel” for highlights of receivers.

    “black betty” and “turn me loose” for highlights of running backs.

    “hold the line” perfect for defensive player highlights.

    And…re: madden, loved 10 the most. Plus you could save long highlights. Those kick return TD highlights in the last video for instance.

    every now and then i’ll fire up the ps3 and play some online games purely to collect a bunch of highlights for m13. one day i’ll do another highlights package put to classic music.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    “dont bring me down” would make for a great RB highlights video for instance.

  • mcfadden20.

    All guys with average talent but on same page is better than above average talent but with 1 guy not on page, so f8ck McClain , and it’s a good thing what Raiders did to McClain , that’s how you send a message, now only if Raiders would have done that to W Sapp and R Moss

    I hate that you can’t replay the whole play and there is no more franchise mode in madden 13, WTF was wrong with that?

  • mcfadden20.

    I may stay up all night and day and game time and sleep after the game depending on the results

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    M13 has connected careers which allows you to play online and i think offline franchise mode. ive seldom time anymore for extended madden play like franchise mode. i like they brought in physics. but without giving you 16 seconds to be able to record a whole play, it sucks.

    m10′s way of juking, leaping, spinning, trucking, etc, just looked and played better.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    This is a great classic song too. The main guitar solo is severely underrated, seemingly never rated among the greatest guitar solos.

    Several things:
    1. As much as I root against KC. I will be watching the games today with a heavy heart. I would never wish anything on anyone what Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli had to witness yesterday. Prayers go out to the families of the fallen.
    2. “Africa” is by far the best “Toto” song; “99″ is the second best.
    3. Trade D-Mac NOW — either a first or maybe two seconds. Also, dump Seymour and Kelly — more draft picks, if possible.
    4. Speaking of draft picks, our number one priority should be anchoring the defensive line — NT Star Loutelei out of Utah would be my pick, if I were making it today (but a lot can happen between now and April),
    5. Let’s get the win today, and then try and mess up Manning on Thursday night!

    How tragic for the Chiefs, Belcher and his infant daughter. Senseless loss for all. High hopes for the child.
    McClain was present at the start of practice Wednesday before being asked to leave amid speculation he might be released. Allen asked McClain to stay home from the facility on Thursday, saying there needed to be “consequences to his actions. Time for all parties to packed their bags and roll up out of here! Allen, Spuds, Seymour, Palmer, in fact…start from scratch!!!
