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.

    007 I know teo is ya boy and all but he really is not that great ND played a sub par schedule with the best team they played probably being Stanford, and I dont remember him having a great game that day I will look it up. He has a big game vs Bama and everyone will be watching we will see how he does then vs a top team imo he will be exposed and his draft stock will drop.

    I liked it for what it was (kind of like one of my not-favorite Harry Potter movies), and Gollum was fantastic (never turn your back on a junkie), but I always get pissed when the Eagles show up to bail everyone out.

    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.
    ————–

    #1 overall!!! You guys are truly drinking the koolaid.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Manti will be on the board when we draft and after.

  • Just Fire Baby

    If it wasn’t Jax I wouldn’t say it as much.

    But they need to sell tix, and create an identity.

    Realistically, they could draft Te’O , trade for Tebow and probably sell more season tickets then they ever had.

    Khan strikes me as a guy more interested in marketing a LB, then drafting a LT.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    lmao…#1

  • The_Judge37

    For all the complaints about AD draft picks, you guys sure are worried about speed.

    We just need a MLB to gobble up RB’s like Matt Millen used to do.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Either way Raiders should be in a spot to draft Jarvis Jones, Damontre moore if he comes out. Todd mcshay has him number 2 on his big board, Start Loutelieli, or Manti Te’o, but they cant win anymore.

    Forget Luke Jockel.. we need impact D players. Veldhere is more then enough right now.

    I dont want any LT that is the next gallery or not even better then Jared Valdehere

    There was also one on some old dude in Richmond, who had so much trash he little slept in the entry way to the front door.

    I felt bad for him though. He was old, wife died, depressed about his kids, etc.

    The Alameda lady was just a pinhead.

    Kinda funny, I went to Lake Forest and Mr. T lived in Lake Forest. Mr. T and the City of Lake Forest were always battling over somthing. He cut down a bunch of trees and they were pissed. 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

    My Uncle Dennis lives in Lake Forest. He has a seat on the commodities exchange.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Kiper Jr said a few weeks ago, not sure if he has changed his tune since, that he talked to 2-3 executives who they would take #1 overall and they all said Te’O.

    You never know with those type of unnamed things, but he is going top 5 without any doubt.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Yep Mel Kiper jr said TEO could go to fist two spots def by 3rd pick.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Pass on Jarvis Jones, I watched 3 Georgia games and I don’t think he was one of the 3 best defensive players on his own team.

    He can rush the passer…….and little else.

    Moore is being hyped as the best 3-4 OLB in the draft, so a draft of him would probably assure that switch for us.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Moore can play both but he was a 4-3 guy

  • Just Fire Baby

    I mean we need a speed rusher, but Jones was getting picked on BY TE’S in that ‘Bama game.

    Need more of a well-rounded player with a top 5-ish pick then that.

    He could be a 3rd down pass-rusher ONLY after a few years in the league.

    NEW 2014 mock draft via walter football

    1 Oakland Raiders: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Star Lotulelei, NT

    Sorry for the spoiler alert, but the first three picks in this 2014 NFL Mock Draft will actually be the same as those in Charlie’s 2014 NFL Mock Draft. We compile these independently, so it was quite the coincidence that we came up with the first three picks – though you could say they should be obvious at this point.

    The Raiders are terrible for many reasons, one of which is their inability to put pressure on the quarterback. As of this writing, only the Jaguars have fewer sacks this season. And right nearby, Aldon Smith has more sacks than Oakland’s entire roster. That’s embarrassing.

    Quarterbacks usually go No. 1 overall, but Jadeveon Clowney is a once-in-a-generation pass-rusher. He’s the favorite to be chosen first overall.

    2 Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB

    Anyone who thinks Johnny Manziel is too small to be chosen in the top five is completely mistaken. Manziel currently stands at 6-foot-1, 200. That’s taller than Drew Brees and Russell Wilson. Robert Griffin (6-2, 220) is pretty much the same size as Manziel will be following next season. Manziel also boasts a very good arm and great accuracy. There’s no reason why he can’t be a top-five selection if he continues to play as he did in his Heisman campaign.

    You know a team’s quarterback situation is dire when Chad Henne represents some hope. Jacksonville isn’t going anywhere until it addresses this position.

    3 New York Jets: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    2013 NFL Mock Draft Pick (as of 12/13): Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB

    The Jets have to keep Mark Sanchez on the roster next season because cutting him would result in a $17.1 million cap hit. Giving Sanchez such a contract is a fireable offense.

    Fortunately, New York can get out of Sanchez’s nightmare deal following the 2013 campaign, and its fans can finally move on to a real quarterback. Maybe Fireman Ed will even return.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I constantly debate about the value of the O-line, but in the draft I am a value guy.

    To me, Chance Womack, Te’O and Geno Smith are far and away the best prospects at their positions.

    Take one of those 3, IMO.

    Ok folks new MOCK draft 2013 via walter football

    1 Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
    This pick largely depends on what happens with Scott Pioli. If he’s fired, as the awesome @saveourchiefs movement is pushing for, this selection will be used on a quarterback. There currently is no signal-caller worth taking No. 1 overall, but that could easily change. Remember two years ago when ESPN was mocking Da’Quan Bowers and Nick Fairley to the Panthers? Well, Cam Newton ballooned to the top, as will some other quarterback this year. If not, the Chiefs could always trade down.

    If Pioli is retained, he’ll pick Luke Joeckel, Manti Te’o or Star Lotulelei and then go for Mike Glennon in the second round. I’ve heard from a reliable source that Pioli really likes Glennon. Mel Kiper, by the way, stated that Glennon could be the first signal-caller off the board, so maybe the Wolfpack product will be the quarterback who rises to the top of the draft. A lot will change over the next four months.

    By the way, I’m doing this live because I thought it’d be fun to get instant feedback. I’m going to post my mock anyway, so why not do it this way? Follow @walterfootball for updates.

    2Jacksonville Jaguars: Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia
    I’ve been mocking a quarterback to the Jaguars for the longest time because it’s been clear that Blaine Gabbert is a sunk cost. I argued that there was no way in hell Jacksonville could go into the 2013 season and sell its fans on Gabbert for another year.

    However, two things have happened. First, Matt Barkley has completely fallen off and cannot be taken at No. 2 overall right now. And second, Chad Henne was brilliant in two starts prior to playing the three AFC East teams. Unless this downward spiral continues, what the Jaguars can sell the fans on is Henne as a bridge to a young quarterback they take in Round 2. Thus, they’ll be free to snag someone as talented as Jarvis Jones.

    Jones would be a huge boost to a defense that has missed strongside linebacker Daryl Smith all year. Smith is a free agent, so if he’s not re-signed, Jones would be a worthy replacement. He would function as Von Miller does in Denver, rushing the quarterback in obvious passing situations.

    3 Oakland Raiders: Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah
    Is there any doubt the Raiders need help at defensive tackle in the wake of Doug Martin’s near-record performance?

    Richard Seymour’s contract will be voided at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Tommy Kelly is a bum who doesn’t care about winning, as evidenced when he laughed after prolonging a San Diego drive with a pair of offside penalties. He’s played so sluggishly this year and was especially bad versus Tampa, so there’s no chance he’s going to see a penny of his $6.5 million salary in 2013. He’s as good as gone, and 15-year-old head coach Dennis Allen lost all respect in the locker room for not cutting him after the opener.

    4 Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
    Is there any doubt that the Eagles have to upgrade their offensive line? Their tackle position is in shambles. Jason Peters tore his Achilles; Demetress Bell has been a bust signing; while King Dunlap simply sucks. Even if Peters comes back close to 100 percent, an upgrade could be made at right tackle, which would allow Todd Herremans to move back to his natural guard position.

    Luke Joeckel had a slow start to his 2012 campaign, but he’s improved tremendously, even stifling the LSU pass-rushers. He could easily go in the top four, right after a quarterback and some order of Jarvis Jones and Star Lotulelei.

    Mistic said Manziel “has the weakest arm he has ever seen from a college QB”.

    Chiefs will take TEO, or StAR number 1 if PILIO is retained

  • papertiger418

    I’m cool with drafting a pass rusher. Again, the only thing I really care about is getting a valid #1 WR, but that needs to occur in FA. Let the draft play itself out.

    It’s a shame we don’t get any comp picks.

    Exactly.

    Some these clowns in here need to learn that HWS and straight line 40 times are overrated when drafting.

    It’s about getting legit football players first and foremost.

    Study game tape and see what intangibles, smarts, toughness, leadership and work ethic a player brings to the table instead of worrying about straight line 40 speed.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    I also said johhyny football was one of my favorite qb to watch in college.

    I am not sold on the arm strength, but that could be a result of the passing offense they run, with lots of horizontal stretch passing concepts.

    In the few times I have watched i have not seen him fit the ball into small windows or push the ball deep outside of the numbers.

    In fact i saw a few wobbly floaters, but being a freshman means he will indeed grow in terms of arm strength.

    Arm strength is luxury not necessarily a deal breaker.

  • DKnight007

    I like Star, but getting a two gap fat NT/DT type within the top 3 picks would be an ill advised move.

    You pick a top QB, top pass rushing OLB/DE, stud LB, maaaaybe a stud LT (even though I think that philosophy is overrated) or an elite RB (like AP) or otherwordly freak WR (like Megatron)

    Look at the DT’s/NT’s who haev been top 4 picks recently. No impact, except for Ngata and he was picked 9th overall I believe the year we picked Huff.

    2005 Travis Johnson was taken by Houston at 16. Where is he?

    2006 Ngata was actually taken 12th. He is a stud.
    Brod Bunkley was taken at 14 and he is servicable….I guess.

    2007 Amobe Okoye and Justin Harrell were taken within the top 16. They stink! Patrick Willis was taken 11th and by all rights could haev been taken 4 spots higher.

    2008 The year we took DMC and soem fo you were screaminfor Glenn Dorsey and Sedrick Ellis who were taken within the top 10 after we took DMC. Both of those guys have had no impact!

    2009 The year Al reached and took DHB. BJ Raji was taken two spots after. I think most of us agree we should have taken at least 6 players ahead of DHB in that draft. BJ is one of them….however, BJ started off good, but has faded the last two years. He is overweight and gets tired way to quickly to make an impact on play by play basis.

    2010 I think we all would have loved to have Suh be a Raider. Gerald McCoy? Not so much….he has faded. Suh has made an impact, even though he is bipolar and is not a leader. We took RoMac and of course he will be with the team next year.

    2011 Marcel Dareus has been a non factor on a bad Bills D. The Lions should haev stayed away from Nick Fairley….an underachiever.

    So there you go fellas. Is Star as dominant as Suh??

    Hmm…..

    I would still rather have Te’o ahead of Star without a doubt.

    Te’o would be the new QB and leader of the defense. Stud LB, all heart with great work ethic and a good kid also, who would probably be a captain as well in his first year. Then look to add a fat NT type through FA or in the middle rounds of the draft.
