Raiders sign familiar kicker

Sebastian Janikowski is the longest-tenured Raider now that punter Shane Lechler is gone. His job is as secure as anyone on the roster, given his experience and sustained success during his 13-year NFL career.
Given that, not much should be made of the Raiders re-signing kicker Eddy Carmona on Tuesday. It’s standard practice for most teams to bring two kickers to camp as a means of lightening the load of the main kicker, as well as providing insurance in case the main guy gets injured.
Carmona kicked well for the Raiders during training camp last season and in exhibition games. Predictably, he was waived at the end of camp.
What was suprising is that no other team signed Carmona. He did not kick in a regular-season game last season.

    NFL Live showing Big Ben highlights; of course they show the Raiders game where Wallace gets that TD wide open at the back of the end zone.

    If I recall, Gio was injured on the play
    —-
    Best part about that play is from a field level camera view, you can see how quickly the DLine gave up the pass rush as soon as Ben rolled out. They changed direction and just trotted a bit, waiting for him to throw a TD. Haha

    DMAC,

    -Watson is an athlete but he is Raw. He played the position for 2 years, and I don’t think he played football before that.
    -Barron is a former 1st round pick who wasn’t a good LT, but can he be a good RT?
    -Barnes is a decent option, but he is not the answer.

  • DMAC

    I wanted Keenan Allen drafted and thought he would be a good receiver and eventually become soemones # 1 receiver, but now thats he’s a Discharger, I hope he’s turns into a bust.
    Fk him

    Watson has strength and incredible fast feet for his size
    Lets see if Soparano is the real deal
    IMO Barnes probably gets moved to guard

    Watson and K Long (1st round pick) played together in Saddleback college.

    You might be right…but all I could remember was the first time he played guard for the Raiders. Ugly! It was the Jets/Raiders game and Jamarcus was the QB.

    DMAC,

    You can get away with a lot of things in college if you are a good athlete. You need technique and fundamentals to play OL in the NFL.

    I think Long was a huge reach in the 1st. They were desperate.

    Immediately pancaked by Calvin Pace. JR couldn’t even get to the end of his drop before being stripped of the ball. He played with the worst supporting cast and offensive coaching staff in Raider history. Hell, maybe even league history.

    Heres a ????? for those who want to talk pigskin

    Who’s the bigger QB bust?
    Russell or Marinovich?
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    LOL no thank you.
    How about who do you think is going to start at RT? Barnes, Warson, or Barron?
    ========

    Watson wins the battle HOPEFULLY or we’re fked

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

    On Sirius today, Pat Kirwan said an NFL OL coach said that Watson graded out better than any right tackle he’d graded in the last 10 years. Said he did things at FSU last year that 10-yr NFL vets can’t do. Sounds like hyperbole, but I like it.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Barnes is RT or nothing.

    He sucks at LT and Guard.

    He’s surprisingly decent at RT, though you people will never acknowledge it

    Sure we could use an upgrade, but not a 2nd rounder. Especially if that Top 50 pick is a project like Mario Henderson or Bruce Campbell #wastedpick

    Did you watch Watson dominate at FSU?

    Did you ever see Henderson or Campbell dominate like that?

    I watched all those guys, and you’re comparing apples to oranges.

    If you talk about Wells then I would rather have Freddie and Branch. The #1 and 2 Raider receivers of all time. Wells was a bit of a head case

    Anybody think it’s funny how, according to Debo, nothing was EVER JaMarcus Russell’s fault?

  • http://www.christianitydisproved.com/ Silverandblack666

    Debo has always felt that way and I used to argue with him about it. Now I just respect his opinion.

    He also likes Mike Vick who I think is not a very good QB.

    It makes for interesting debate in here that is for sure.

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

    When did I say NOTHING is his fault? Problem is, guys like you blame him for EVERYTHING. JLH’s career goes in the toilet? JR’s fault. Barnes gets pancaked by Pace? JR’s fault. Palmer gets excused for 4-12 because of Knapp, the receivers and the OL. But it’s JR’s fault we went 5-11 in 2009 when he had an inferior OC (Ted Tollner), and inferior OL and inferior receivers. Just trying to separate perception from reality. This board needs that in spades!

    Jamarcus didn’t have much help. No Blocking, WR’s, Knapp, DeFlippo, Kiffin, etc… but He didn’t do himself any favors either. So I don’t feel sorry for him at all.

    I can respect Draft busts who give effort but don’t pan out.

    what you guys think about mark jackson and steph curry’s complaints last night?

    They’re legit and George Karl should be ashamed that he’s turned into such a no good slug.

    The “hits” on Curry and the mauling are a desperate attempt by a desperate coach for a desperate team who knows they’re being outplayed and unfortunately for Karl…now out-classed.

    Karl is showing his true colors by resorting to these cheap shots. He knows they can win by playing basketball so he tries bullying and cheap shots.

    Shameful.
