Five players not at practice today

Quarterback Carson Palmer, right guard Mike Brisiel, cornerback Phillip Adams, defensive tackle Richard Seymour and strong safety Tyvon Branch aren’t practicing today.
Palmer definitely won’t play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers in the regular-season finale. Seymour haas missed the past seven games, and it’s likely that he won’t play this Sunday, either.
As for Brisiel (concussion), Adams (groin) and Branch (ankle(, they stand a decent chance of making it back in time for the Chargers game.
Terrelle Pryor and Matt Leinart are taking reps with the first-team offense today, with coach Dennis Allen saying he will see how both perform in practice this week before deciding which will start in place of Palmer.
Palmer suffered broken ribs and a bruised lung against the Carolina Panthers, and he already has been ruled out.

    Looks like that to me with this comment.
    When a HC states a player doesn’t know the whole playbook? I suspect it’s because the player DOESN’T KNOW THE WHOLE PLAYBOOK.
    ———————
    Well, I suspect something else, cross posting btch. So what?
    ==================
    I think I already cleared it up.
    However, my most recent comment is even more on the mark, considering this reply.
    Let me repeat it for you.

    You’re not all that bright, are you?

    Th‏is ain’t rocket science – the Raiders will look very stupid if they don’t play Pryor at least for half of the game if not all of it.

    No matter what side of the coin you look at, it works the same – if you need to evaluate younger players, who cares if they are “ready or not” per say. How many passing plays does Pryor need to know? 20 total plays and their routes/formations. Run plays are fairly straight forward.

    If the regime is definitely wanting to let go of him, showcasing him for some duration during regular season games can only help his value – I don’t think he would lose trade value given the “disfunction” of the Raiders that many seem to hold.

    Shame one them if they don’t use him for a couple of quarters of a half AT MINIMUM.

    Don’t know if he is the answer or the question… I live 15 miles north of the horseshoe – I like the Buckeyes, but am not one of THOSE crazy fans. Saw Pryor in his first OSU game in 2008 (in fact, it’s the last game I have attended, and only watch a couple a year – I am a Raider fan first and foremost). The one thing that stood out to me watching this Freshman QB was his quickness and speed. A position conversion would go well for him. He is a hard worker, and winning seems to follow him when he plays.

    Well does Pryor have a neck tattoo?

    Because yeah, that could be a deal breaker with DA.

    I’d feel more comfortable about our chances this week if said play sheet was actually a Denny’s Menu.

    In other news, Gregg Knapp was informed that “Pause,” “Zoom,” and “Print Screen” options aren’t necessarily new technology and worse, the Chargers likely have access to all.

    Or is Dennis caught up in stereotypes that suggest that Pryor may have comprehension problems with this “complicated offense” ?

    I would love John to come here.

    Just understand the limitations that he also brings.
    57-55 with the Bucs and three losing seasons out of seven.

    He suffers from the same problem as ALL coaches. He can not win without the talent on the field.

    Incorrect.
    The cap issues manifested themselves for the 2012 season. We kept kicking the can down the road and it had to stop.
    Further we mortgaged 2012 and 2013 to an extent for Palmer.

    If you do not think so, then do you think we go 8-8 with Bollar??????
    ——–

    I don’t see how this is any kind of rebutal to what i pointed out? If anything, DA had far more going for him into this season than Hue did to begin his rookie season. Sure Hue may have sabatoged DA with the Palmer trade, but then we’d be in the Same boat with JC, or even worse, Matt Lienart as our week one starter.

    This year has been so strang and unbelievably bad it almost seems like a real nightmare and I’m having a hard time waking up. I just find it hard to believe a coaching staff can screw this up this badly.

    How can we go from a great running game to thr worst in the league. We cannot score or get 1st downs.

    The season was over at Holloween and they cannot figure out how to use a player like other coaches are using all over the league.

    It’s just mind boggling to the point it seems unreal.

    KK, I do believe the double agent has some of that in him. I think he has old school ideas how things should be done…….period

    They know he knows it, they also know what he can do. They just don’t want anyone else to know. They didn’t think things would turn out quite like they did.

    Youngster, too green, too young to be a NFL Head Coach able to deal with all kinds of people, Imo.

    “Hamstrung” would be more appropriate than sabotage. Sure, DA had his work cut out for him but he failed.

    The only (possibly) saving grace is that the D appears to be on John Marshall level now.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    it really is the three stooges of coaching…

  • Raiderjambo

    If Pryor isn’t an NFL quarterback, how would one know with the powder puff practices the RAIDERS have obviously been running for the last umpteenth year. If he’s not up to it let’s accept that in an NFL game situation, not a flag/touch, walkthrough practice. If the kid can’t cut it there, then sure as hell he can be a servicable WR.

    ================================================
    Krapp should print his play sheet on some nice soft Charminy paper.

    That way the team could wipe their azzes with it and flush it down the sh1tter where it belongs.

    It’s probably not very absorbent. Like everything Knapp does, it’d just smear $h!t everywhere

  • Scourge

    Pryor’s fellow teammates should have a valid impression of his performance. Have any players made public comments along the lines of “play him way more than he has been?”

  • Charlie

    The cap issues cost us players that produced something for Hue albeit at a ridiculously high price.

    We were left scrambling for guys that were cut by other teams or practice squad players just to get under the cap.
    Injuries like Seymour killed us and again we had no depth because of cap issues.
    We did not have a 1st or second round pick so no immediate help could be counted on but we did find Burris and Streater.

    How many guys like that do you expect to find in one offseason given our other issues?

    The cap impact on the roster is huge. Injuries (I guess that is the strength and conditioning coaches fault), no first or second round picks and a roster that was a year older and you want to blame it all on poor coaching?

    As I said before the 2011 team was the most expensive 8-8 team in NFL history. It was a house of cards that was doomed.
    Again, that is why no one with experience wanted the gig and why we had to offer 4 year deals.
