Seymour, Branch, Brisiel not at practice

By Steve Corkran
Thursday, December 27th, 2012 at 11:54 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders are 72 hours or so away from their regular-season finale against the San Diego Chargers. As each day passes, it becomes more and more apparent that defensive tackle Richard Seymour, right guard Mike Brisiel and strong safety Tyvon Branch won’t be able to play, at least at full strength.
All three missed practice today, which makes it likely that Seymour will miss an eighth straight game, Brisiel will be replaced by rookie Tony Bergstrom and Branch might give way to Mike Mitchell rather than risk further injury to his sore ankle.
Branch has played the past two games on the sore ankle, though he wasn’t able to finish the game against the Carolina Panthers last Sunday.

– Quarterback Carson Palmer turned 33 today and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly hit 32.
Palmer won’t play Sunday as a result of the fractured ribs and bruised lung he suffered against the Panthers. He was spotted driving away from the team facility as practice started.
Coach Dennis Allen said Palmer also won’t accompany the team to San Diego because of the danger inherent in flying with a bruised lung.

– Quarterbacks Terrelle Pryor and Matt Leinart are splitting reps at practice in light of Palmer’s absence. It remains uncertain which player will start Sunday.
Allen said Pryor and Leinart split the reps evenly at practice Wednesday, though Pryor made it sound as if Leinart received the majority of the snaps.
“Matt started with the first team for a good bit, and I was getting like the last two or three snaps,” Pryor said. “Not much but more than I was. I’m happy about it. It’s an opportunity and I’m looking forward to it.”
Leinart last started a game Nov. 27, 2011, when he was with the Houston Texans. He suffered a broken collarbone in that game and missed the remainder of the season.
Pryor, of course, has not started a game during his two NFL seasons. He has appeared in three games, with six snaps altogether.

    Do you root for the name on the front of the Jersey or the back?

    If you are a Raider, I support you.

    McKenzie and DA are OUR peoples now!!!!

    Doesn’t mean you care any less for Al Davis and everything he stood for by supporting the new GM and HC.

    Loser talk.No they are not our peoples after this week.Say goodbye.

    For all you lovers of 4-11 records and rampant and excessive excuses for not accomplishing anything, you’ll be pleased when it’s announced nobody is going anywhere…including Greg Knapp.

    Like our great HC says: “When you believe in something you stick with it..no matter what”.

    His “no matter what” includes no matter how many games you lose or careers you destroy, or fans you alienate, or jokes you hear about your team on Jay Leno.

    YOU STICK WITH IT NO MATTER WHAT.

    Don’t blame Seymour. He didn’t ask to come here. He was traded and immediately became a leader and once Cable took over was part of the team going in the right direction. Seymour was a pro bowler last year and still has something left in the tank. Guys like Houston, Bryant, Shaunasty and even Kelly are much better because of him. He could have been a cancer like Sapp was but at least he was a stand up guy and played pretty well on a bad D.

    He’ll resign with the Pats next year and end his career as a winner.

    Sorry, I just cant place my support on blind faith. Especially for two guys that I had no reason to support prior to them becoming Raiders. But we all have different principles.

    When Reggie DA arrived, I wanted nothing more than for these men to be successful. As you said, we’re all Raiders fans, and we would all be happy to see this team succeed, regardless of who it is that gets credit. We just want to see some good football.

    My disdain for these guys has only accumulated based on what THEY have done, and on nothing else. I have no interest in disliking these guys. Hell, I STILL wish they were successful. But the truth is the truth. Theyve failed this season. And theres nothing wrong with us expressing our disappointment. Thats what this board is all about.

    I want the Raiders to win though. Just like you.

    No 1 except for maybe Amy’s in charge said we would get gruden back. But I think most people would love to have gruden back…

    FIRED with cause.

  • CDERaider

    Listening to DA when referring to the offense it appears that Knapp will indeed be the scapegoat.

    I would prefer DA also get the hook but since Reggie stupidly handed him the reigns with a 4 year deal its inevitable DA is back next year.

    I think Al Saunders getting OC job and a move back towards a power offense makes the most sense.

    What’s the odds that will happen though? With Allen, he’ll probably go out and get another ZBS guy and let Saunders go.

    Stop the We Miss Hue whine. Hue is gone, and should stay gone. Anyone who says otherwise didn’t pay attention last year.

    Hue took over Cable’s 8-8 team. Yes, Hue finished at 8-8 but only because of a monumental collapse at the end of the year, that should not have happened.

    -Raiders started season 7-4, only to lose 4 of the last 5 games. Just one win in there would have put us in the playoffs. That is on the coaches. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Hue said he was going to build a bully. He couldn’t build a box with lego’s if you spotted him 3 sides. Under Hue in charge, the Raiders committed 163 penalties. AN NFL RECORD. For 1,358 yds. ANOTHER NFL RECORD. Not only did Hue not instill discipline, the team got worse. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, gave up 31 TD passes. A FRANCHISE WORST RECORD. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, gave up 5.1 yds per carry, on defense. A FRANCHISE WORST RECORD. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, gave up 4,262 yds passing. A FRANCHISE WORST RECORD. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, gave up 6,201 total yards. A FRANCHISE WORST RECORD. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, gave up 433 pts. the 3RD WORST IN FRANCHISE HISTORY. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, was one of only 4 TEAMS, IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL, TO GIVE UP AT LEAST 30 TD PASSES, AND AT LEAST 5.0 YARDS PER CARRY. Two of those teams were the ‘50 Colts and the ‘52 Texans. FAIL. Bye Hue.

    -Raiders, under Hue, became the sixth team since the 1970 merger to allow at least 2,000 yards rushing and 4,000 yards passing in a season. FAIL Bye Hue.

    Forget Hue acting like a total idiot, and prima donna, demanding more control. Or him throwing the team under the bus, after stating all along he deserved all the blame. He got fired because he didn’t just do an inadequate job, but, as you can see above, Hue did a horrible job.————————-

    OOOH!!!

    Who wants to be the one to make a list of Dennis Allen’s “accomplishments” this season?
    —————————-
    While you are at it, make a list of Al Davis accomplishments the last 10 years.
    ——————————————
    Sure, Al died with his team 6-4 and in 1st place in the division. He also has 3 SB rings, and has given Hall of Fame speeches for more Hall Of Famers than ANYONE on Earth. Fact. Just stop. Trying to bring up Al Davis in a comparison between Dennis Allen and Hue Jackson is lame. You can do better than that.

    So, did Art Shell deserve to be fired? I think we all agree that the answer is yes.

    Dennis Allen’s defense has been worse. And the offense this season has been horrible, with FAR better talent than what Shell had.

    Lets see, Aaron Brooks and Andrew Walter or Carson Palmer?

    Lamont Jordan or Darren McFadden?

    Courtney Anderson or Myers/Ausberry?

    They had Moss. OK. And Ronald Curry, Whitted, Gabriel.

    This team has far more talent than that team on the offensive side. We had a good D that year, but all in all, the expectations between that season and this season were not even close.

    For Palmer to be middle of the pack(ranked 16th I think in QB rating) with the sorry sacks around him and a POS coach is pretty good if you ask me. In the same circumstances, Russell would be floundering. Guaranteed.

    Elite? Probably not.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    WTF?? The team Palmer has around him is an All-Century team compared to what JR had around him in 2008 or 2009. And somehow, JR led us to a 5-10 record in 2008 compared to Palmer’s 4-11. Forget that “best QB since Gannon” blsht! When Palmer can lead this team to 5 victories, or any other team for that matter, come talk to me. Until then, JR was the better QB in Oakland.
