Allen returns and is on practice field

Coach Dennis Allen returned from Texas and was on the practice field as the Raiders underwent final preparations Wednesday for their game against the Denver Broncos.

Allen addressed the team before practice and will be on the sidelines Thursday night. Allen’s father, Grady, died of heart failure at age 66 Tuesday morning.

The only player not practicing was defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who will be ruled out of his fifth straight game later Wednesday. Cornerback and punt return specialist Phillip Adams was cleared to practice after missing the previous day’s session with a concussion.

Neither Allen nor any players will be made available to the media Wednesday.

    Things have not been great this year, but some how I think if we can DA, he will go somewhere else and become a great coach.

    The roster spot has value. Ford does not

    Have you see 31 run directly into the first guy wear the other color jersey at the 9 yard line repeatedly on KoR’s?
    =====================================

    I have and it sucks. Problem is I have seen Ford on the field about 6 times in the last 2 years and that was even worse.

    No mention of the Chucky rumors. Too much smoke not be a fire? Right? Or is it a “won’t dignify BS rumors with a response”. Either way, no comment is as good as fanning the flames. C’mon Cork, tell us what you hear/know.

    who is this allen guy?

  • RaiderDanny

    YOUR FIRED!!

  • SalvadoRaider

    Picking up from the past story, I believe the GB connections would help promote a good constructive repoire between Gruden and Reggie. They both have a history together, both football people, etc. BRING BACK GRUDEN! The guy has been begging in different ways to be a part of us again and proved already what he can do. He KNOWS football AND can motivate. If Davis gets rid of Reggie why not bring in Holmgren as GM with Gruden as coach?!

  • RaiderDebo

    Give me the JaMarcus years any day of the week over the garbage we’ve had to watch most of this season. At least in 2009, all this whining about a “lack of talent” was legitimate. Two schtty rookies starting at WR, schtty bookend OTs, and Justin Fargas as our starting TB. Oh, and JR was only in his 2nd year as a starter. There was hope for the future. Now, not so much.

  • Raider-in-PA

    “Jon Gruden is a great coach, get over it!!”

    maybe I am getting my press conferences mixed up…lol

  • raiderpete

    Allen shows a hell of a lot of commitment to be back so soon. I was initially ecstatic to learn about Gruden, but I think Allen deserves and needs a chance. We do need to get rid of both coordinators. I’m thinking either Turner or Saunders next year, maybe someone as rough as Singletary for defense. If we draft well and get rid of some of these bums, we should be okay.

    Guaranteed, if i was in the Donkeys shoes, I would be looking for some pay back.

    Didn’t Denver already pay us back earlier in the season?

    Handing us our worst loss to them in our history wasn’t good enough?

    I’m thinking a beat down in our own house is more painful than anything they did up in mile high.

  • DJ Johnny

    21,

    Yeah, and in front of a national audience to boot.

    I think Fox may take it easy on us though in light of DA’s tragedy.

    If he does beat us down badly, run up the score or otherwise humiliate DA and the Raiders I would hope DA would not find any humor in it this time.

    I agree, DJ. They may just build a comfortable lead and run out the game. Stop just short of a humiliation.

    Here’s our gameplan as fans “Hope they take it easy on us”.

    Thanks fellas!

    No wonder people want Gruden back.

    He represents a time when WE were the aggressor.

    Indeed, it’s a sad state of affairs, DJ. This team blows on all levels.

    BREAKING NEWS!

    Alright you guys I DO finally have confirmation there is a former Raider possibly going to an NFL team. So the rumors have life. The problem is it is Mike Lombardi going to Cleveland. You ever play that game where you go around the room starting with one line and by the end of the game it’s a completely different line? Looks like Lombardi going to Cleveland ended up being Gruden going back to Oakland. Hilarious.

  • DJ Johnny

    35,

    I don’t get it.

    Do people even realize that Seymour was cleared to practice two weeks ago? He just doesn’t want to return, and DA and Tarver aren’t going to bust his chops and make him unhappy when he’s out of here in four more games.

  • 504 Raider

    This is what I advocate:

    Reggie stays and brings in Gruden to be Head Coach. DA accepts the DC position. I know it would be awkward at first for DA but really he may not get a bettr gig. Plus he would remain on the same salary he is on now that way Mark Davis don’t eat his contract.

    HC: Gruden
    OC: Trestman/Callahan (Jets staff getting fired)
    OL: Callahan

    DC: Dennis Allen

    HC – Shaw

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    You think any local beat writers would knows whats going on in the front office? heck no. They have zero sources. They all piggy back off national media.

    Only three ppl know whats going on that JON GRUDEN, Mark Davis and his mother. Many ppl are forgetting about Carol. She cant be to happy that this org is moving like this after her husband Al passed on.

    The next time local beat writers break a scoop that would be a first. They wont know till JON walks through that door for the presser. and they are eating their cold cutz .. subway sanwhiches and have cheeto stains on their fingers.

    Thats when the will know

    Hard to believe that Cleveland would recycle Mike Holmgren for that idiot Lombardi. Well it’s Cleveland we are talking about though.

    *****************
    What evidence do you have to support that claim?

  • DJ Johnny

    Another reason this Gruden rumor has guys excited is just the mere POSSIBILITY that something good will happen for us.

    We had ZERO free agents to get excited about. ZERO draft picks, ZERO any decent rumors of someONE or someTHING good coming our way.

    How long has it been since something exciting happened for us? Or even the possibility of something good or exciting?

    Other teams’ practice squad acquisitions don’t count.

  • RaiderDanny

    Its business first! No one is safe! Gruden LOVES us! If he gets the call–HE’S COMING!
