Seymour, Branch not at practice once again

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, December 20th, 2012 at 11:56 am in Oakland Raiders.

Defensive tackle Richard Seymour and strong safety Tyvon Branch aren’t at practice today for the second straight day. All in all, the Raiders still are relatively healthy for a team about to play its 15th regular-season game.
It’s doubtful that Seymour will play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, given he has missed the past six games and his injured hamstring isn’t healed enough for him to practice.
Branch’s situation is another matter. He played last Sunday despite missing most of practice leading up to the Kansas City Chiefs game.
It’s likely that things will play out the same this Sunday, with Seymour inactive and Branch playing at less than 100 percent.

– As for playing time Sunday, coach Dennis Allen said he doesn’t expect any lineup changes or the playing time to be much different than it was for the Chiefs game.
“No, it’s going to be pretty similar to what we did last week,” Allen said. “Still getting an opportunity to look at a few guys.”
That doesn’t bode well for quarterbacks Matt Leinart and Terrelle Pryor, running back Taiwan Jones and backup tight ends Richard Gordon and David Ausberry, guys that played sparingly against the Chiefs.
Pryor got on the field for four plays. Well, three plays if you don’t count the false-start penalty to begin his one drive. Pryor handed off twice and then missed wide on a pass for wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey on third down.

– The Raiders get one final shot at winning a game played in the Eastern Standard Time zone this Sunday, when they travel to Charlotte, N.C.
So far, they are 0-4 this season in such games, with losses at Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore and Cincinnati. In 2011, they went 0-2, with losses in Buffalo and Miami. In 2010, they lost both times on the east coast, against Pittsburgh and Miami.
The streak stands at nine straight losses, dating to Dec. 6, 2009, when the Raiders beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh behind a stellar game from quarterback Bruce Gradkowski and wide receiver Louis Murphy.
Since Dec. 15, 2002, the Raiders are 5-26 in games played back east.

    well it looks as if we will have to wait until next pre season to get a real look at pryor. Only it will not be Real game action.

    This is a travesty and should add to the case against allens return.

    There is no appreciable reason to play palmer in this game or the next. Nothing is on the line other than a chance to improve form 4 to 5 games in the win column.

    In my estimation that is not enough reward to fail prudent business and time tested draft strategy of playing young qbs during a non competitive season.

    thank goodness Cam newton is playing in this game. otherwise there would be no qbs on the field that would interest me in the slightest or cause me to watch.

    Allen, if you get blown out and palmer plays like crap, will it have been worth your selfishness?

    PLease satan’s claws….I mean santa cluase, I want allen fired for xmas

    TWO Acceptable outcomes this Sunday…

    1. Pryor and other young/unknown non-starters get extensive playing time. Result? We find out what we have (and don’t have) BEFORE GOING INTO THE OFFSEASON. Score/game outcome–> fully irrelevant.

    Perhaps that is too logical and I’m expecting too much from the CLOWNE COACHE CADRE (CCC).

    2. If this simple ‘plan’ is just too much for the CCC then my second wish is that this ’staff’ oversees a MELTDOWN OF EPIC PROPORTIONS (MEP) on the order of 42-6 in favor of Carolina, followed by a BLOWOUT THAT BELIES COMPREHENSION (BBC) in San Diego to the tune of 50-3.

    D0A and Friends(tm) have already proven to be a WHOLLY INEPT TRAINWRECK (WIT) and if they cant see that ‘1′ is the only logical option, then I would like to witness a complete and fully-cataclysmic implosion that makes it impossible for Davis to even contemplate retaining the CCC in 2013.
    ===========================
    Losing is NOT acceptable. Winning becomes a habit and so does losing. Everybody with this “clever losing find out what we got s**t” stop now. Winning is all that matters. I hope we run the ball down the Panthers throat all down long. DMAC and Reece run for 200 yards combined :-)
    Go Raiders!

    >>hey played 3 games against the big ten, and 2 of those teams were ranked.>>
    That Michigan St team is 3-5 in conference play & finished 6-6. But like most typical Big 10 teams, they get over ranked.
    Impressive win against Michigan. Needed 5 INT’s to win by a TD against a Denard robinson squad. How did Alabama fare against them?

    >>nix isn’t even the best player on their line. tuitt is.>>
    So that’s another 1st round pick covering for Teo huh?

    >>u said u wouldn’t want seau or singletary in the first round.>>
    No I didn’t. I said I don’t want Teo in the top 5. And I said Seau was overrated as hell & Singletary was surrounded by studs.

    >>he’s ranked #2 on kiper’s board and #7 on mcshay’s.>>
    Oh well that settles it. Kiper had Mike Williams out of USC as his #1 overall in 2005. Now what was the knock against Williams? Oh right, that crazy speed thing. Should I list other Kiper failures as well?

    Didn’t McShay tell us how great Andre Woodson & Jevon Snead were gonna be?

    All realtors are required to man the desk, on a rotating basis, even those who have zero sales, with the idea that maybe, just maybe a walkin results in a listing.

    That’s Kell’s current, and only listing. Came from a walkin.
    We sure as hell know he didn’t leave a chair long enough to canvass, lol. That’s for sure.

    Tell us again, Michael, how proud Jacqui’s family is, of a son in law who sits on his ass all day, while his wife works?

    LONDON…

    You dont get it.

    The ONLY way we dump these A55hats is if Mark gets seriously dejected adn we see BIG TIME regression. (Admitedly hard to do from the point we are at now.)

    I HATE rooting for a loss here (and cant actually watch and root for a loss) but its soo bad we cannot afford another LOST season in 2013.

    Its that simple.

    Give me one GOOD reason we should keep T1T5 and Friends(tm)? (Spare me the dealt a bad hand excuse. thats tired and BS since D0A and MCK had a large part in CREATING this hand.)

    Seriously, ONE GOOD REASON.

    Yeah thats a tall order I know…

    And if there is a 2.76% chance of getting Gruden, I take that ALL DAY LONG over a 100% chance we continue to be the NFL’s PRIMARY DUMPSTER FIRE in 2013.

    With KRAPP and T1T5 at the helm in ’13 that’s a guarantee.

    Sorry, I cant mentally go there after 10+ years of putrid.

    How about Reggie McKenzie go and look at Te’o’s game tape, football intangibles, work ethic and character instead of basing their drafting on straight line 40 time?

    What a concept huh?

    Straight line 40 times are overrated!

    =========

    That’s fantastic, but he has to sit there on and see how it will project into the NFL. We’re not playing a weak schedule like ND gets every year.

    Intangibles, work ethic, & character huh? Yup those traits are serving Tim Tebow quite well aren’t they?…Hell I thought McClain had all those things.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Why are you comparing Te’o to McLain though? When it is obvious Te’o is quicker, can cover, is a hard worker, has heart and can has proven he can play as a MIKE in a 4-3 as an ILB in a 3-4?

    Questions on McClain were whether he was quick enough and whether he can cover and whether he can be a MIKE in a 4-3.

    Te’o has shown on tape he can cover, play both as a MIKE and ILB and is quick and is a helluva tackler and leader. Complete opposite of McClame character wise as well?

    What’s your issue? Worry he can’t run a straight line 40 in 4.6? Give me a break with that.

But the funniest was when he refused to pay the garbage bill (some kind of dispute), the front gate to his house was a giant mountain of garbage. Really pissed off Whitey.

    Also his daughter went to our school. Hated to be referred to as Ericka T.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I am completely in favor of drafting Te’O and I highly doubt that article about people worrying about his speed.

    However, I don’t think he will be on the board when we draft.

    He could go #1 overall to Jax. They need a face of the franchise, and while he is not a Golden Haired Hero, he will sell jerseys to soccer moms and 6 year old kids.
