McFadden looks ready to roll Thursday

Running back Darren McFadden is running around at practice today without any lingering effects from the high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss the past four games.
Coach Dennis Allen said he expects McFadden and backup running back Mike Goodson to play Thursday night against the Denver Broncos. Goodson also has missed the past four games with a similar injury.
Defensive tackle Richard Seymour (hamstring) is not practicing once again, and it appears as if he is about to miss his fifth straight game.
Defensive end Jack Crawford (toe) is back at practice, as are safeties Matt Giordano and Mike Mitchell. The latter two suffered concussions Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
Cornerback Phillip Adams also suffered a concussion against the Browns. He was not cleared to practice today.
Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp was quite vocal in presiding over practice today in place of head coach Dennis Allen, who is in Dallas with his family. Allen’s father Grady passed away Monday night. Allen is expected back with the Raiders on Wednesday night.

    Dion Jordan is not nearly physical enough to play on the edge he’s too thin teams would run right at him on passing downs. You’d have to utilize him in space and he hasn’t shown yet that he can play in space. He’s a huge gamble IMO.

    Retired from what?? Just cuz u aint working dont mean your retired! When Saints asked him last year to interim HC he said “thatsnot what im looking for”!

    Rather go with Mike Lombardi than Parcells.

    Parcells’ health won’t allow him to put in the hours and stress required to perform at a high level as a GM.

    Also, his ability to manage a team might be a problem.. lol.

    This is just more proof of what many of us have been saying all along. McCheese is just another POS who played the system & bilked the Raider organization out of millions and is nothing more than another BIG TIME BUST. Kick his sorry a$$ to the curb after you suspend him for the remainder of the year. Do NOT pay this worthless individual. Make him sue you for it. Then beat his a$$ in court ala AD style.

    Aldon Smith was a situational player his first year.

    Jordan wont be thrown to the wolves if he cant cut it.

    He’s a great talent on a great frame.

    Kyle Long would be a 3rd rounder.

    Hanson must be retained, the others are a dime a dozen.

    Pass Rush & Oline. Period.

    Interesting. So what does that site have to say about the Gruden “scuttlebutt”?

    Sorry. The site has a rule: “What happens in Premium, stays in Premium.” I can tell you there’s lively discussions on that site in the free section as well, and the boards are moderated, which means Oakfoshow and Fangs would maybe post once before they got banhammered.

    Anyway, I’ll probably fork over the $30 yearly membership at the end of this month.

    And just because Rolando played for Alabama doesn’t mean we still can’t find talent there. Just anticipating the childish argument for that.

    Per Casserly, Seymour’s big deal he signed VOIDS OUT at the end of this year unless we buy back in. So Reggie can give #92 a big fat Sayonara with no cap hit. w00t!

    Man if Mr. Allen passed today, you had to think it has been touch and go the last few days.

    DA coached Sunday’s game knowing, that when he hit the locker room afterwards, he might get word his dead died.

    I commend him for plowing through FOR HIS TEAM.

    These guys will play lights out on Thursday for their coach.

    Allen deserves a lot of credit for having the grit to do that.

    you don’t think having jonathon joseph champ bailey or revis make an impact? a good cover corner gives your dline time to get to the qb. all of our cb’s are free agents so you retain hanson who’s playin opposite of him? harder to get a starter cb past the 2nd than it is a rt or lg. and we already have Shaughnessey, Houston, Bryant, Bilukudi, and Crawford. just my opinion

    werner or moore in the 1st
    best cb avail in the 2nd
    sign bowe
    sign maualuga

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Jordan & Lemonier as the first 2 picks after a trade down would be ideal..

    They wouldnt have to be full time players right away with Wheeler & Burris already there..

    Pass rush specialists..

    Then nab Kyle Long in the 3rd.. theres your RT.

    Veldheer
    Bergstrom
    Wiz
    Brisiel
    Long

    Well depending on the next 4 games, Gaither as a stop gap is an option.

    Would allow us to develop someone.

    Im sure Reggie has his eye on something.

    I think were gonna need personnel that allows us to be 34 or 43, no matter what, so maybe staying away from someone that cant play in either is the idea..

    McClain & JaMeatball have the same plan as the “Basketball Wives”.

    Basketball wives put on a good show, they flaunt their big booties, fake breasts,nose jobs and weaves, act like they are faithfull, loyal and exemplary marriage material chicks, then sucker the dumb newly become millionaire NBA players into marrying them, have like 4-5 kids from them, then divorce them, take half their money, and force the sucker punked NBA player to pay child support and alimony after he’s lost the house and half his bank account.

    McClain and JaMeatball are “Basketball Wives” of the NFL. Al Davis was the sucker NBA player.

  • papertiger418

    The 2012 Raiders have been defined by irony more than anything else–a defensive minded head coach who hasn’t fixed the defense, DMAC’s relatively healthy season ruined by the ZBS, and the return of an OC to “improve” what had been a potent, if inconsistent, offense.

    What I’m getting at is that if irony defines the Raiders, we shouldn’t be surprised if they somehow manage to end Manning’s career two days from now, which would incur the league’s wrath against us in the post Al Davis era.
