Seymour, Branch, Brisiel not at practice

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.

    And clearly the worst staff in the history of the Oakland Raiders

    ———————————————————-

    How is this worse than the bed and breakfast staff?

    ^^^^^^^^
    DA and his crap staff is the 2nd worst behind Art Shell and Tom Walsh Part 2 bed and breakfast.
    ———————————————-
    I say this is worse. This was supposed to be a team of “professionals”.

    Shell brought Walsh from making pancakes. He wasnt gonna be very good, no matter what. And Shell took over a 4-12 team. Dennis Allen took over an 8-8 team. People wanna talk about DA having it rough? Please. He was put in a position to succeed, and failed. Period.

    The Dennis Allen era is worse than Art Shell 2. THAT team was TRULY a rebuilding team. This, was not. This was a team that needed a few tweaks to get BETTER. Progress should have been made. Instead, we fall back to the middle of the 2000s, erasing the progress we were making the last 2 seasons, at 8-8. People talk of rebuilding. WE WERE REBUILDING. We were in the SB in 2002. We had a few bad seasons, but then back to back 8-8. THATS WHAT YOU BUILD ON and MAKE IMPROVEMENTS TO. These guys came in here and destroyed the progress of two years straight.

    We should not have only gotten 4 wins this season.
    We should not have been blown out multiple times.
    We should not have had to watch our offense get WORSE, because they promised it would get BETTER.

    Dennis Allen did a bad job. People need to stop vouching for him like hes the second coming of Madden. Hes not.

    The Similarities between Allen and Shell are Uncanny:

    Both Lost to the Browns, but beat the Steelers

    Both made horrible decision with OC’s

    Both benched players with bad attitudes

    Both Bench player afte their first fumbles.

    Bootlickers support the status quo. Raider fans are sick of this manure. We want coaches who have some balls. Iron balls. Not marshmellow balls. Balls that carry some weight. Loaded balls ready to explode if need be. Wrecking ball type balls. Wow. The type of balls that make a coach great, not soft balls. We need balls of fury. Man sized balls.

    >>>>

    I don’t know if I agree. If you look at the the things he had complete control of, the defense, team playing hard, and overall penalties; I saw progress… especially lately. And lets not pretend he had much to work with in talent on defense, especially with Seymour hurt. The defense sucked last year too.

    His main mistake was trusting an abject idiot to be in complete control of the offense. There was plenty of talent on offense… with CP coming back and having an entire off season to learn the play book. This was a top ten offense last year with McF.

    What was Allen supposed to do about an offense that he prolly knows nothing about?

    Mike White ran a WCO system, thats why he took over from Art Shell Part 1, because Shell and Walsh were getting Hostetler killed with the 7 step drops.

    Hue ran a system similar to what Baltimore runs but with more downfield passing.
