Raiders-Chiefs game will be televised

Sunday’s game between the Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs will be televised locally, a Raiders spokesman said.
The Raiders on Thursday were granted a one-day extension in an effort to sell enough tickets to satisfy the league’s blackout policy. The Raiders reached the 85 percent threshold in time to avert a second blackout this season.
This marks the seventh time in eight games this season that the Raiders will be televised. The figure stands at 15 of 16 over the past two seasons.

    Anyone who watched the raiders last year and thought they were good is delusional.
    •••••••••••••••
    So your take on this seasons hot garbage? Hue should have been givin another year. We would have been good this year. No question about it. Now get ready for the 2012 Toilet Bowl.
    ***********

    this season has sucked. i’m not sold on the coaches, but there is little doubt they’ll be back.

    as for hue, it doesn’t matter. his 1-4 record down the stretch and reggie’s desire to bring in his own guy was enough to seal his fate.

    and that 1-4 record was exactly what we’re seeing now. so, hue likely wouldn’t have made much of a difference.

    If you see Allen not play Pryor at all, even with the Raiders beat good at half-time, if you Allen bring in Leinart before him, and only play Pryor for a kneel-down at end of game, or, not play him at all…..I’m saying, look out! Allen is deliberately thumbing his nose at Mark Davis. Reggie likewise only gave lip-service in his PC after the Davis PC. I am convinced Reggie and Allen are in cohoots clearing out Al Davis players.

    And I’ll even go so far as to say, if Reggie and Allen are here next year, and no Gruden as P-FO, etc, you watch Reggie and Allen trade Reece, Ausberry, DHB, Moore, McFadden, Pryor, Ford, Taiwan, Veldheer, Wisniewski, etc.

    *************
    who ever said mark davis is wanting pryor to play? he said he had an opinion, that it wasn’t his pace to say it, and then said he supported palmer.

    where exactly does everyone seem to think he said he wants pryor?

  • dr_robert

    i get a laugh out of all the people down on the palmer trade. everyone loved it at the time, including me. it seemed we were a qb away from becoming a decent team. but the defense fell apart and the REAL team was revealed (i would say exposed, but missdick kinda has a trademark on that word now).

    last year’s early “success” was a mirage.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    He wants to see Pryor. There is such a thing as intimation. You don’t have to be Einstein to figure out the question that was asked of him about Pryor, and him stating he has an opinion, would like to see, smiling obviously, but also stating he does believe in Palmer.

    Figure that out, it’s not hard. Since then, Reggie got the message. He then said, forced to say, yes i want to see Pryor to evaluate him, but its up to the coaches, not me. Hogwash, he’s the Chief of FO. Allen got the message and immediately started dressing Pryor. But three times now has not played him, and BSed with “if the situation presents itself, have packages, none presented” and been reported Pryor wasnt getting many if any reps still.

    Allen is challenging Mark. Mark and Reggie are in cohoots. Mark is furious.

    That’s how I SPECULATE it all. Based on bits and pieces. But it’s quite apparent Mark intimated he wants to see Pryor.

    CNBC Exec’s Children Murdered, 1 Day After CNBC Reports $43 Trillion Bankster Lawsuit

    October 27, 2012

    This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains.
    The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.

    Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters.

    Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances.

    It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.

    John Brown (May 9, 1800 – December 2, 1859) was an American abolitionist who used violent actions to fight slavery.[1] During 1856 in Kansas, Brown commanded forces at the Battle of Black Jack and the Battle of Osawatomie.[1] Brown’s followers also killed five pro-slavery supporters at Pottawatomie.[1] In 1859, Brown led an unsuccessful raid on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry that ended with his capture.[1] Brown’s trial resulted in his conviction and a sentence of death by hanging.[1]

    Brown’s attempt in 1859 to start a liberation movement among enslaved African Americans in Harpers Ferry, Virginia electrified the nation. He was tried for treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia, the murder of five pro-slavery Southerners and inciting a slave insurrection. He was found guilty on all counts and was hanged. Southerners alleged that his rebellion was the tip of the abolitionist iceberg and represented the wishes of the Republican Party to end slavery. Historians agree that the Harpers Ferry raid in 1859 escalated tensions that, a year later, led to secession and the American Civil War.

    The state of Illinois would have to allow ordinary citizens to carry weapons under a federal appeals court ruling issued today, but the judges also gave lawmakers 180 days to put their own version of the law in place.

    In a 2-1 decision that is a major victory for the National Rifle Association, the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals said the state’s ban on carrying a weapon in public is unconstitutional.

    “We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home. The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside,” the judges ruled.

    “The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense. Illinois had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden.

    “The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment compelled the appeals court to rule the ban unconstitutional, the judges said. But the court gave 180 days to “allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public.”

    David Sigale, an attorney who represented the Second Amendment Foundation in the lawsuit, called the decision by the appeals court in Chicago “historic.”

    “What we are most pleased about is how the court has recognized that the Second Amendment is just as, if not at times more, important in public as it is in the home,” he said. “The right of self-defense doesn’t end at your front door.”

    Concealed-carry in Illinois, at last

    In the opinion, Judge Richard Posner wrote that “a Chicagoan is a good deal more likely to be attacked on a sidewalk in a rough neighborhood than in his apartment on the 35th floor of the Park Tower.”

    Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, a Democrat, is taking time to examine the ruling before deciding whether to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    “The court gave 180 days before its decision will be returned to the lower court to be implemented,” said Natalie Bauer, Madigan’s spokeswoman. “That time period allows our office to review what legal steps can be taken and enables the legislature to consider whether it wants to take action.”

    Illinois is the only state in the nation not to have some form of conceal carry after Wisconsin recently approved law.

    “The (Illinois) legislature, in the new session, will be forced to take up a statewide carry law,” said NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde.

    The lobbyist said prior attempts to reach a middle ground with opponents will no longer be necessary because “those compromises are going out the window.”

    House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, a longtime gun control advocate, said she hoped the state would appeal the ruling. But Currie also said lawmakers must “get cracking” on how to respond to the ruling and begin parsing its key points.

    Currie, D-Chicago, said that “justices surely do not mean that we would have to have wide-open” laws in Illinois. She said Illinois must now look at what other states are doing, such as disallowing guns in day-care centers and other locations.

    “If we need to change the law, let us at least craft a law that is very severely constrained and narrowly tailored so that we don’t invite guns out of control on each of our city’s streets,” Currie said. “I don’t want people out of control wandering the streets with guns that are out of control.”

    Rep. Brandon Phelps, who has repeatedly sponsored concealed weapons legislation, hailed the measure as a “mandate.”

    “The justices more or less said Illinois has a mandate to get something passed within 180 days… to pass a concealed-carry law in the state of Illinois,” said Phelps, a Democrat from Downstate Harrisburg.

    “I never thought we’d get a victory of that magnitude,” Phelps said.

    Phelps fought unsuccessfully in the House to pass concealed weapons legislation with a long set of restrictions, but he warned opponents of his legislation may regret they had not supported it when they had a chance. Now, he said, he “can’t see us” going forward with legislation that has as many restrictions as the bill that failed.

    The prior bill largely limited carrying weapons to when a person was in a car, walking into a house and out on a sidewalk, and it specifically disallowed guns to be carried in churches, schools, gymnasiums, sporting events, bars and businesses, Phelps said.

    He said no decision has been made on which restrictions in his previous legislation would be removed in a new bill.

    Phelps warned that gun control groups who might want to appeal the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court might put strict laws in other states in jeopardy. He said he would consult with the National Rifle Association and the Illinois State Rifle Association.

    A spokeswoman for Gov. Pat Quinn said the administration is reviewing the decision. The governor has previously said he was firmly opposed to any law allowing citizens to carry loaded guns in public. He threatened to veto previous attempts by lawmakers to pass legislation allowing concealed carry in Illinois.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel said through a spokesman that he was “disappointed with the court’s decision.” The city is reviewing the opinion and will work with others “to best protect the residents of Chicago and still meet constitutional restrictions,” Bill McCaffrey added.

    “As the mayor has said all along, the City of Chicago is committed to maintaining the fullest degree of lawful handgun restrictions possible while still respecting the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens, because maintaining common-sense restrictions is an issue of public safety.”

    Rich Gannon’s franchise record of 4,689 yards was set in 2002.

    Palmer has 3,805 yards in 13 games.

    So Palmer needs 885 passing yards in the last 3 games (avg = 295 per game)

    Anybody think he’ll get it ??

    ***

    I predict Pryor’s “special package” will never be seen this season. Today I think Palmer will throw for 305 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT’s (one of them in the 4th quarter) he will also be sacked 2 or 3 times and might fumble once

    However – I think the Raiders Defense will force a few turnovers of our own and Darren McFadden will have a big day. Raiders win 24-10

  • RaiderRockstar

    Rockstar, I read your posts all the time since you are one of the few on here who sometimes make sense.

    What sense does it make to fire a general manager or a head coach after one year?
    Isn’t that what Al used to do and isn’t that why we haven’t had a winning team in ten years?

    ***

    thanks ENGLAND!! the feeling is mutual bro

    I’m not saying Reggie & Dennis should be fired. I’m of the opinion half the roster should be dumped and probably half the coaching staff too. Before you build, you have to have a solid foundation. No changes in Owner, GM or Head Coach. All 3 were rookies this year. A bunch of our players suck, so it bothers me when coordinators Knapp & Tarver say we need to retain as many of these players as possible. What is the reason for this epic failure? It’s either dumb, lazy, untalented players .. or it’s the system/scheme .. or the coaches. I think it’s a combination of all three

    My comment about BigMac & Visor being “pathetic” was because they say they want to develop young players and see what they’ve got in Pryor, yet he’s still getting no reps and he’s still 3rd on the depth chart. The season has been over for 3 weeks now and we’re not gonna see all that Pryor has to offer in 5 or 6 plays over the course of an entire season. Even if Carson Palmer & Darren McFadden are your guys moving forward, why risk injury? You don’t want your key players spending half of the offseason in recovery or rehab. I think they are insecure about their job status and know if they lose all 3 games, Mark could decide to clean house and start over

    This roster has been SOFT for years. The young players are BUST or boom players with tremendous flaws. The vets are garbage.

    Clear out the remaining CHECK CASHERS like Kelly and Seymour – get Carson, DMAC, DHB and RoMac’s obscene and bloated contracts out of here.

    You know you have a flawed roster when Routt and Wimbley were getting a combined $20 mil per year.

    Did the team underperform? Sure. But the CEILING for this decrepit roster was 7 to 8 wins. That leaves u in the same place in January as 3-13. At least now there will be NO ILLUSIONS that some duct tape and an aging vet or 2 like Carson or Seymour will make the difference. This roster will be PRESSURE WASHED like it should be

    Clean House! Build the lines And fire Knapp! He’s never succeeded as an OC.

    well, that’s one take. but it seems a bit bent to fit ur agenda, which is u want to see pryor.

    according to u, DA and reggie are going directly against what mark so desperately wants.

    or if u see it another way, mark davis believes in palmer, and reggie and DA do too.

    i see no evidence of mark being “pizzed” about pryor.

  • dr_robert

    WAY too much importance is put on pryor playing on this blog. i don’t think in reality, it’s nearly as close to the top of the list for the organization. sorry, but it’s true, based on facts an results.

    pryor is simply no one’s priority except many in here.

    pryor-ity. a new catch phrase.

    ————–

    All Hue haters ever talk about is 1-4 down the stretch, do they forget that Detroit Lions game where we had the game locked up? Do they forget the debacle at home against Denver where we were up 2 scores and in control of the game? do they forget the drive we gave up against Buff with the game on the line? do they forget in the finale against SD CP damn near threw for 500 yards and we couldnt force 1 punt? But yeah we’ll just remember 1-4 down the stretch. Haters with agendas period.

    DAY OF RECKONING FOR D0A…

    Nation..Pray for the following…If it happens likely we get our wish (most of us anyway)…DOA AND THE CLOWN COACHE CARDE—> GONE

    leaving door open for Gruden is some capacity…

    OR….as a compromise to Reggie…CCC STAYS but Gruden comes in as Prez of Football ops (ala GG’s theory)…

    Either way, we, the lowly fans, win…

    First however we NEED the following today (and over the next following weeks)…

    BLOWOUT LOSS TO KC TODAY…WITH LOTS OF EMBARASSING MOMENTS….SOMETHING ON TE ODRER OF 33-9 SHOULD SUFFICE…

    WITH…PIG HEADED D0A -NOT- GOING WITH PRYOR…MOSTLY THE LOSER STARTERS WE HAVE ‘ROLLED’ WITH…THIS IS KEY…NO excuses for DOA this way…and hes too DUMB to see this as his out….GOOD FOR US…BAD FOR HIM…

    Then we need anothEr EMBARASSING presser by DOA and/or his CCC..post game BLAME GAME for everything including the Mayan Calendar about WHY 0AK played so badly…

    Thats probably enough to get him gone (or bring in a president of football operations)…

    However’just to be sure’…

    I say we need 2 more DISSSAAASSSTERS on the field

    28-0 vs Carolina (easy to serve this up given our awful D and fruitless O…plus its an east coast game)

    Lastly…but by no means least…a NORF/RIVERS finale to be ‘proud’ of…I see a torch-fest…SD clowns will try to ‘save’ NORF’s job (forget it)….In SD…with a demoralized 3-12 team KNOWING one more pudrid performance would get the CCC canned….

    42-6…

    So sad its come to this but this is my Christmas Raider wish for 2012…

    All it is..is guys latching onto ANY sort of option to generate some hope. However misguided it might be.

    Ours is a demoralized fanbase right now for the most part, looking for anything.

    We know that Pryor has the speed and size to do things to help us.

    I think he’s a weapon we could use.

    That 4th and one in Cincy?…if we gave the ball to Pryor on that with his 6’6 frame he mgiht’ve been able to simply reach over the top with ball in hand and gotten us that first. Then again…maybe not.

    This staff has proved they don’t know everything. Understatement? Yes. Reece for example. It takes injury to get him in the game and he does very well. Coaches even admitted they were ‘surprised’ at how effective he was.

    I really think the zbs is going away next yr. They will be voting on eliminating blocks below the waist during offseason with all the ‘safety’ stuff going on.

    This would effectively end the zbs as a viable scheme for ANY team.

    The vote could go the other way, but i don’t think so.

    The Chiefs radio guy was on 95.7 making great points. He said one of the players told him that they missed Weiss. He said Weiss was the guy that made the “big difference” he was the one that put players in the position to make plays. He said that Charles, Cassell, Moeaki were pro bowl players in 2010 and now they are nothing.

    We talk about careful planning in regards to roster building, coaches etc. and how careful planning leads to championships etc. and all that’s true, but how much just simply comes down to luck.

    Look at GB. Did they carefully plan of Aaron Rodgers? Nope.

    Rodgers fell in their lap at # 22 in the draft. He could have easily gone to any other team. You could say he is the single most decisive factor in their success.

    How about Brady? 6th rd. draft pick and arguably one of the greatest of all time? Is New England a supposed dynasty without him?

    How much of a genius was Belichik before Brady?

    I think Pats are good org w/o Brady, but THIS good?

    Dumb luck with those org’s playing a major role.

    I’d like to think we could get some too one of these days.

    Today Palmer faces a gut check. If he has a pulse he will recognize that Pryor is being evaluated & the long term Implications of this move. Any time a qb does t win & turns the ball over like Carson has in his tryout season the. Is told to hit the bench for any snaps he should know his Tavel agent should be o. Speed dial.

    What if Carson plays poorly like he has over this six game skid? Could he further erode the gm & owners confidence? What if Pryor makes a big play in his limited snaps, without even having he benefit of increases practice reps?

    Pryor has a nance yo force his way onto the field & into a full honest competition for next season.

    If I were knapp & Allen I would do everything in my power to prep pryor. If he does well & adds a spark it could quiet down the critics of knapp and Allen and justify their return & possibly even build excitement for the team. Ext year.

    We already know Carson & knapp together have not delivered.

    This is just stupid… STILL not practicing tp. Gonna give him a few obvious zone option plays that we wont be able to block.. god these coaches are dumb… and theyre already making excuses for us sucking next yr.. since we NEED the bulk of our players back… it takes a whole yr to learn our schemes…B.S!!!!!

  • nycraider

    1242.. good point johnny. No matter what anybody says the qb is your franchise.. you either have one or youre gonna struggle.

    Not even Peyton Manning could be successful with the horrendous play of the WR’s, injuries decimating the running game, no defense and terrible coaching by Allen, Knapp and the rest of the staff. Carson has thrown a few picks but they are the result of him having to make lemonade out of cow$hit.

  • nycraider

    You need a QB who has the “IT” factor not “INT” factor
