Janikowski honored for five-FG effort

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 at 10:28 am in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his five field-goal effort against the Kansas City Chiefs.
This is the seventh time in Janikowski’s long career that he has earned the honor. The last time came in Sept. of 2011.
Janikowski accounted for all the scoring in the Raiders 15-0 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday. His lone miss came from 51 yards.
He converted field goals of 20, 30, 41, 50 and 57 yards against the Chiefs. In the process, he passed Morten Anderson for the third-most field goals from 50 yards or longer. He now has 42, tied with John Kasay for the second-most ever. Janikowski trails only the Lions’ Jason Hanson (52) for most such field goals.
Overall, Janikowski has made 29 of 32 field-goal attempts this season. He is battling the Browns’ Phil Dawson for the spot on the AFC team in the Pro Bowl.
Dawson has made 26 of 27 field-goal attempts this season, with a long of 52.

    Haven’t been in here for a few days. So is the board all excited because we actually won a game? Lol. That was one of the most unimpressive shutouts I’ve ever seen. And keep in mind that KC went for it on 4th down and failed twice in FG range. Could just as easily have been 15-6.

  • The Big Banana

    And why again did we not just roll with Pryor? This game meant nothing and was a perfect opportunity to see what he could do on a real game. Smh at this staff.

    Then again, Krapp may stump Pryor more than help so maybe it’s a good thing to keep him shelved until a competent staff is hired.

  • The_Judge37

    Jano owes this award to Greg Knapp, who’s offensive system allowed for so many long distance FG attempts.

  • MiamiRaider78

    Proven-The system does work

    Proven-Knapps playcalling has always been mierda.

    Well guess what, we are about to get kicked in the nuts by the new football paradigm, and crushed by the wave of the future and it is a tsunami named Cam newton.
    When cam shows off his other worldly skill allen will look like the biggest idiot on the planet. Worst than what he looks like now.
    =======================================================

    As far as engaging in hyperbole, you are possessed of other worldly, even ‘Spaced Age’ skills.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    wait before i go ill leave you with this article from the charlotte observer. This is what the wave of the future can do for you. By the way there are many articles on wilson kappy and rgIII in their local papers as well.

    Wouldn’t be nice to have qb that had write ups like this in silver and black? i mean write ups that they actually deserved instead of the empty hyperbole we got with the dynamic duo article and the infamous trade validation article that im sure the writer wishes he never printed.

    since Nov. 18, Newton has a passer rating of 109.8, second only to Washington’s Robert Griffin III. Newton has thrown 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions. He also has run for three touchdowns.

    Much of the success in the passing game, offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski said, comes from Newton’s willingness to find secondary targets.

    “He’s really improved” in his decision making, Chudzinski said. “I’ve talked about Cam improving and that’s one area: not taking sacks, getting rid of the ball, checking it down, getting it to a second read.

    “You saw some dump-offs to DeAngelo (Williams) or Mike Tolbert (on Sunday at San Diego) or getting out of harm’s way and throwing the ball out of bounds.

    “Those are the things quarterbacks do that can keep drives alive – minimize negative plays or not trying to force the ball and throw an interception. You’re stringing the plays together.”

    An Observer review of every Newton pass during the past five games examined everything Chudzinski mentioned and more.

    Newton entered the Nov. 18 game against Tampa Bay averaging 238 yards passing, with eight passing touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 77.2 passer rating. The Panthers were 2-7.

    During the recent five-game span, Newton averaged 261.1 yards passing with 10 passing touchdowns, zero interceptions and a 109.8 passer rating. And the Panthers were 3-2.

    Newton has been very effective on passes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, going 62-of-89 with four scores.

    Included in that total: Newton is 10-for-11 on screen passes, for 156 yards and two touchdowns. On dump-offs and check-downs to secondary receivers, Newton is 15-for-18 for 124 yards.

    Newton’s 152 pass attempts without an interception is a franchise record, beating Jake Delhomme’s six-year-old mark. Newton’s is the longest active streak in the NFL.

    He has been sacked just nine times over those five games, and hurried nearly 13 times per game.

    Newton threw crucial interceptions Oct. 21 against the Cowboys and Oct. 28 against Bears when he was hit as he threw. But during this stretch, Newton has attempted 17 passes with seven completions for 138 yards and a touchdown when being hit.

    Playing a large role in Newton’s lack of turnovers, Chudzinski said, are drills run by quarterbacks coach Mike Shula that simulate Newton’s check-downs and safety valve routes when under pressure. Newton must avoid backup quarterbacks Derek Anderson or Jimmy Clausen, acting as pass rushers, before finding his option.

    Chudzinski said the drills, film study and in-game experience have allowed Newton to make those reads quicker.

    “You have to see yourself on film making mistakes and you have to see situations where, ‘Oh if I would have just checked it down here,’ ” Chudzinski said. “And stressing with him over and over and over again, ‘Where’s my check-down, where’s my safety valve, where can I get the ball to if I need to get it out quickly?’ ”

    Chudzinski said Newton still has a lot to improve upon, including his mechanics. During the past five games he either has overthrown, underthrown or been wide on 32 attempts, or 21 percent of the time.

    With this hot streak, Newton needs to average 172.5 passing yards over the final two games to break Peyton Manning’s NFL record for most passing yards during a quarterback’s first two seasons (7,874).

    “He’s playing more consistent and I think he’s getting more confidence,” Chudzinski said. “Those are things that just start building and everything feeds off that.

    “As you see yourself doing things and you see mistakes, hopefully you’re correcting them the next time they come up. And I think that’s clicking. You’re seeing Cam improve in those areas.”

    =========================================================
    I’ll say it again:

    I think we’ll see a lot more of the younger players and back ups in the next two games. With the Chefs, if you’re playing the worst team in the league, and suspect they might rather lose for draft position, just how much would you learn about you’re back ups? They’re going to play hard no matter what ’cause they’re back ups. Might be a good time to see how hard your starters play in a “meaningless game” and if they’re football players or check cashers. Still two games to go to evaluate players, and San Diego won’t be tanking for draft position at home.

  • The Big Banana

    Not buying it, Purvis. KC would have been a perfect game to play some of the young guys for that very reason. Ease them into it.

    Back to back 8-8 seasons and these f clowns want to rebuild..Regardless of what Al did or didn’t do. This team was not close to being in a rebuild mode as the 59 points we hung on the Donkies in Denver is evidence.. They have the same unit only different coaches and scheme…DA, Tarver and Knapp you suck and your excuses are only icing on the cake for your dismissal.. Kick Rocks

  • The Big Banana

    #12 – yep, DA is coaching for his job at this point. 1 series with 1 pass? Lol. Why even put him in? Was that a slap in the face to whomever wanted to give Pryor playing time (owner/GM)?

    ——-

    It’s important because we’re looking at a top 5 pick and need a QB for the future. It’s not about upgrading pryor to starter or even 2nd string. It’s about knowing what you have in a future prospect just in case you might want to use the top 5 pick on a QB. Unless this team plans on drafting in the top 5 again, gotta know now what you have in Pryor

    Less about the selfishness of Allen and more about the ignorance of fans. If they play their players and win, fans want to see the #3 Q. If they play the
    #3 Q, fans would scream their heads off that they lost to a 2-12 team. Best for the org and the players to try to string some wins together at the end and eff what the fans think.

  • The Big Banana

    Miami – it’s not about playing the 3rd stringer over the starter. That’s an oversimplification. Pryor was drafted to be the future QB, was he not? We need to know what we’ve got and start giving him game experience.

  • hwnrdr

    Yeah the bad thing about that is handing off to DMAC twice…but Allen may not have wanted to give up a quick pick six…

    ===============================================

    But Carson Palmer was not here when Pryor was drafted. We do not know if Pryor can even BE a Q in this league. Palmer can. Certainly in the next two weeks again, we can see a series of plays for Pryor. But let’s be honest here, the future of this team is not pointing to Terrel Pryor.

  • The_Judge37

    Palmer is not our future. He’s a stop gap for 2-3 years at the most, 1-2 years at the least. Maybe they have one more yeart to see if Pryor can be the future QB, but a Top 5 pick is comming soon, and it might be a good idea to know if a QB is the way to go with it.

  • shutdown

    “And why again did we not just roll with Pryor?”

    For the same reason we don’t “just roll with DHB” as qb.

    The guy isn’t a quarterback. He needs to do what Tebow needs to do, now, while he’s young–commit to changing positions or go to Canada if he wants to play football.

    Did Missdick really just say ‘Free Ron Parker’??? That guy said some of the most disgusting sh1t I have ever heard, but what its cool cuz he was a black guy? Yet misdick labels me ‘the most racist person on the blog’ because I made fun of Jamarcus penchent for speaking in the 3rd person… which he actually did… Fcking race baiting hypocrite.

  • shutdown

    “Pryor was drafted to be the future QB, was he not?”

    Well, it was Al who drafted him…so, hard to say. Al would either have told his head coach to “teach him how to be a qb” or “get him to change positions.”

    Al thought size and speed were all that was necessary to become a football player because Warren Wells and Cliff Branch actually learned to catch balls as they sprinted toward the end zone. He fancied it was worth a chance.

    I looked at that preseason game that TP played against Detroit, where he completed a couple of long passes. Both passes were only kind of near a covered receiver. As I recall, both were heaves that were a underthrown.

    One pass was a nice one to a receiver crossing over the middle, with Pryor, on the run, leading him nicely.

    Do I think that showed much? No, not really. All qbs can do that at times. Even David Humm.

  • bcz24

    Pryor was the last in a historical string of draft misses by a dying man.

  • raiderzmaverick

    As bad as it is to say it, the reason is that our offensive coaching staff are like the Jet’s. They can’t think outside the box of “what they know”. So, trying to rework schemes to fit different types of players don’t get done. It’s why you don’t see the players being put into positions to take advantage of their skills.

    It’s why you don’t see Reece used. It’s why they wouldn’t put Pryor in. Look at the Redskins this year – their QB gets hurt and they rework their offense to fit the back-up. They put in the type of plays for RG3.

    Knapp wouldn’t have the creativity to do that. So the QB would look like crap no matter what.

  • The_Judge37

    I know Al loved drafting people and playing them at position he thought they’d be good at, but i do remember the Raiders saying Pryor would be a QB even before Al died.

    Both passes were horrible, and Criner bailed him out and made a play. Those were Pryor’s own words. Misdick would tell you Pryor played outstanding… Pryor said he played like, and I quote, ‘dog crap’

    This apparantly is way to logical for some in here. I’ve been saying the same thing weekly for damn near ever. Quite a while, anyway. Get to winning and CP3 might even stick around as #2, collect a check and rest up those battle worn bones. Would feel pretty good going into a game with him as back up, wouldn’t it? 3-4 years from now, I repeat.

    NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (WHDH) — A Newburyport postal worker was arrested and charged with possessing child pornography featuring children as young as 4-years-old.

    Ronald Parker, 46, of Amesbury was arrested on Monday by state police who say they caught on to Parker surfing the Internet for child pornography and other crimes against children.

    In Newburyport, residents are outraged that a child porn suspect worked as a substitute letter carrier in their town.

    “He needs to be locked up. He can’t be around children, especially if he’s on a route. What if those children are home alone after school without their parents around, they’re playing or on their bike at the — where the mailbox is,” said Michelle Fugere

    LOL! Hilarious.

    I would take Norvall calling plays as OC ahead of crappy Knapp as OC any day of the week.

    Norv runs more power gap, pulling, counter and trap schemes along with his downfield passing and screen games to the RB’s.

    Though Norv can get caught up in predictable mode at times.

    Better off with giving Pryor a Shot. Leinart is a proven back up QB, he’s had his shot at starter and is on a One Year contract. Like it or not, Pryor is our 3rd round draft pick and here for at least 2-3 more years
