Raiders sign FB/RB to active roster

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, December 4th, 2012 at 10:40 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders filled the vacancy on their 53-man roster by signing fullback/running back Jamize Olawale from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
Olawale takes the place of suspended middle linebacker Rolando McClain, who is out until Dec. 10, at the least.
Teams are permitted to sign players from another team’s practice squad provided they place that player on the active roster.
The Raiders expect back running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson in time for Thursday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.
Good thing, too, for their primary replacement the past four games, Marcel Reece, is hobbled by hamstring and quadriceps injuries right now.

    The emsemble that Reggie has chosen starting with the coaches must be taken apart and reintergrated. That means Reggie’s thought process was misconstrued in regards to coach/ player personnel. I believe that alone will set the Raiders comeback off another year. So whatever your comeback date is for the Raiders add one more year to that.

    tebow, ponder, gabbert, locker, quinn, henne, cassel, weeden, fitzpatrick, foles, lindly,macelroy

    If all of these guys get to pay / start in the nfl then certainly pryor CAN as well

    pryor is better than every guy on this list and it isnt close
    ========================================

    But do any of the guys you list have an overall number one two time Pro Bowl Q starting in front of them? Nope.
    ========

    doesnt matter especially at 3-9

    palmer has thrown away so many games this year, that his probowl past is nothing more than ghost that haunts the memories of his worshipers.

    Its pryor time

    besides that wasnt the discussion i was having. Someone said pryor needed to switch postions, and i answerd by listing qbs that are have played this year and followed it with the suggestion that pryor is a far better player than those guys.

    Based on what? What Pryor did in a preseason game, or what he did against good defenses in college?

    Just cuz you WANT him to be better than those guys you mentioned doesn’t mean it is actually true.

    ..want Pryor to be good to but that is really a stretch.

  • DJ Johnny

    Are we waiting for the Chiefs game to see Pryor?

  • theghostronin79

    Free TP6!!!!

    Time to unleash Bruce Leroy!!

    =========

    LMMFAO….Watchin TP with a “Blue Glow” trailing as he eludes would-be sacks and makes a break down the sideline laughing….”I AM THE MASTER”

    Ok, O, I get your logic but no Raider fan will want to just get killed by the Donks at home…even though, based on Tarver’s interview that we won’t tsop Manning…he can be stopped, but we got so many holes all over the place…does it matter really where we draft? Reggie will probably trade down anyways, and get more picks out of that!
    —————————————–

    No worries. We got that extra FB/RB now. We got this game in the bag.

    I freakin HATE DUNGVER

    Can any Reggie supporter tell me what philosophy Reggie goes by? Al Davis philosophy ,to my knowledge, was to get the best athlete a plug them in. so that sometime meant the athlete he chose did not fit the schemes at times.

    Trust me I am trying to move on from the Hue era. I just don’t know where Reggie is taking this Org. and his first crucial moves were disasters.

    ======================
    I like to think he is taking us to several Superbowls sometime in the next five years but we shall see.
    As far as personnel go I think he is going for football players first and “athletes” second. Give me a smart football player over an “athlete” anytime.
    For now, in Reggie I trust.
    Go Raiders!

    There is no way chokey returns to the Raiders, no way. That’s fantasyland talk.

    As well, don’t expect TP6 to start or to get any play from the Raiders. Both Carcux and Leinart would have to go down and out. I suspect that there has to be some kind of legalese (active time in the NFL) in a player’s contract as the reason to activate him. As some suggested, Pryor will be dealt away as soon as the season is over. Which is a very dumb move, but that’s “our” leaders at work.

    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.

    Re: Griffin v. Luck

    Injuries are a crap shoot. A guy can twist his ankle or knee taking a step back and never be the same. All you can talk about are probabilities.

    Why do we always have to frame the question as “Who’s better, Griffin or Luck?” I can’t really answer that question. The skill sets of both are really high and likely to grow with each game.

    I will say this. As long as you have a qb who is nimble (both) and fast (Griffin), you have to work hard at convincing that qb to not place himself in a place where someone running full blast at him can take a shot at him because all it takes is one hit to send you to mediocrity. That shot Griffin took on his non-throwing shoulder as he ran full tilt for the sidelines was scary. It could have happened to anyone but given his skill set, his knowledge that he can usually outrun someone and get to safety (the sidelines and ob), Griffin was showing why it is that so many coaches both love speed, yet often loathe it in their qb, for it’s downright hard for that qb to resist the temptation to outrun the enemy. You can only take so many of those shots before you are worn down by the end of the season or you are hurt to the point you aren’t what you once were.

    Griffin is fun to watch, but he’s better off not being as fun to watch, because the laws of probability have to be considered.

    Both qbs are great and I hope they stay healthy and have long, illustrious careers.

    “Can any Reggie supporter tell me what philosophy Reggie goes by?”

    1) demonstrable football skills at their positions: RM doesn’t give a rat’s ass about what Al saw as “undeveloped potential.” I don’t think you’ll see, for example, a Reggie drafting track stars to be turned into wide receivers or brute forces being drafted to be turned into offensive tackles or guards.

    2) character/maturity: guys who love to play ball, good citizens, guys who can treat their job as a professional should treat it (not going to be drafting guys who are wearing fur coats to press conferences)

    3) intelligent guys if he can get them (Bill Walsh and Jim Harbaugh, having coached at Stanford, know how much intelligence can help a good player become a great player and mediocre one become a good one)

    4) mental and physical toughness: Reggie’s a throwback, a former linebacker who doesn’t like the guy who can’t tough it out with a bad ankle.

    another worthless move.

    ========

    Same people said the same thing when Marcel Reece was signed. Tell me you saw THAT player coming.

    Let it play out, please.

    I can as soon as you tell me WHAT YOUR FOOTBALL BACKGROUND IS. What college team you played for, what NFL camp you were in, and what scouting background you have.

    ULTIMATE FAIL.

    regardless of how he did as a GM, yours is just an opinion. ..one anchored by a team mired in multiple failures by previous regimes, including Al Davis (post 2002)
