Raiders helping local players with football fundamentals

On Wednesday, several Raiders are scheduled to work with local high school players at Laney College as part of the NFL High School Player Development program.
Center Stefen Wisniewski, defensive end Andre Carter and cornerback Chimdi Chekwa are among those that will work with players from: Alameda, Bethel Christian, Castro Valley, Encinal, Fremont, Oakland, San Leandro, James Logan, San Lorenzo, Piedmont, Skyline, Tennyson and Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep high schools.
In other news, the Raiders rookie mini camp takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The media are allowed to attend Saturday.
At that time, we will provide you with updates on how the new players look, as the coaches get their first look at the 10 players selected in the NFL draft last month, as well as the numerous undrafted free agents signed.

    Nice that you fully blame Hue for Chuck Bresnehan’s defense

    Chuck B made Tyvon Branch!

    I guess the only thing Branch is good at is the Prevent Defense, where the opposing team marches 80 yards down the field.

    Oh and then Hue says Al wanted him to be the GM.No wonder Reg got rid of his megalomania arse.

    Not during the season when he should’ve.

    Did Allen Fire Knapp?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Did Hue fire Bresnehan?

    ***

    No. He mandated that Chuck abandon the man2man defense they were all well versed in.

    did you see us attempt zone?

    or blitz from players outside of the “front four” ?

    It didn’t suit the players, especially making those changes midseason.

    Hue was dumber than Dennis Allen. At least Knapp got an offseason to install his offense. The players just didn’t perform. DA sure as heck wouldn’t have wasted draft picks on Palmer & Curry either

    or brought in his ex-players like Hue loved him some Housh & Ndukwe

    Oh! A Huebris flame-war. Why am I not surprised?

    Cork is definitely telling us to cool our jets, since we won’t be getting a new post before Saturday. Can’t really blame him; we’re in the dead zone right now.

    I’m not arguing that Hue didn’t suck, he made plenty of Coaching mistakes. That being said, he’s still 2x the HC dennis allen is.

  • DJ Johnny

    Hue made some bad decisions as every 1st yr. HC has.

    Some of the ones referenced above were definitely head scratchers, and ones that really ticked me off and indeed made no logical sense.

    I don’t think anyone is saying the guy was a coaching savant.

    Every coach makes odd moves on occasion.

    How about Fox deciding to sit on the ball in the playoffs and play for OT with a HOF QB at the helm…at home?

    Lovie Smith failing to challenge an obvious 4th down call at the goal line when refs said runner was short and replay DEFINITIVELY showed he was in? He would later say he trusted his defense to hold them deep in their own end after that play. They did not hold and Bears lost the game.

    On that 4th and one with Hue that defied logic and think he was trying to show we could bully our way into the endzone. Trying to prove a point. It was a bad decision.

    cue discussion about once again:

    naive optimist > optimist > realist > pessimist > defeatist..

    ==================

    I fall somewhere between Realist, and optimist……

    Getting saturated by pessimists and defeatists daily can be exausting. But they argue they’re “REALISTS” damnit.
    ________________________________________________________

    I hear ya! for 7-8 years, I have more or less predicted the W/L total for before each season +/-1 and each year most guys here have cried “defeatist” “pessimist”, but when season was over and I’ve pointed out that they were dead wrong when they before season declared us division champs, then I was a know it all and a lot worse..

    funny thing, the naive optimists are those whom speak the loudest in here, and even worse those who cant admit fail..

    The Raiders under Hue were like the Lions under Schwartz; dynamic at times but prone to meltdowns. No resilience or mental fortitude.

    I think the captivation Hue holds for fans has more to do with the fact that it had been so long since there were stakes to a season–which is fine, but we all really should have moved on by now.

    The issue is many are not giving DA or Reg a fair chance. One year does not a tale tell. We’ve had that for years and years. Doesn’t work. We need stability. If DA can’t make it work in 2 more years then fire him and move on.

    Why waste two years on something EVERYONE knows won’t work. Dennis Allen just doesn’t have what it takes to be a head coach. He can’t motivate his players, he can’t game plan, can’t adjust, can’t identify good staff help, can’t adjust to his players.

  • bcz24

    Hue took the most expensive roster in history to an 8-8 record that very easily could have been a 4-12 record if not for a few lucky breaks (anyone remember the missing man formation?). If he is such a good HC why can’t he even get an interview for a coordinator position. The only job he can get in the NFL is a position coach for his old buddy Mike Brown… and that is only Browns way of thanking Hue for the 1st and 2nd rnd picks!

    It’s that Dennis Allen sucks

    Hue is only brought up to show just how bad Dennis Allen sucks, that even a guy like Hue was able to do more than Allen.

  • DJ Johnny

    A lot of guys look at what Reggie’s done so far and are very encouraged about the future but judgement day is on the field…period.

    So far all he’s ‘accomplished’ is taking an 8-8 team and making them 4-12 and in yr 2 presenting a roster that is widely considered to be the worst in football with some even suggesting it seems to be historically bad.

    There will hopefully come a time…sooner than later when we can look back at everything he’s done and congratulate him for doing the ground work that led us to some point of great success and it will all make sense; or when some can say they knew it all along, but that time is not now. THIS is where we’re at: 4-12 in yr 1,worst roster in football (by most accounts) yr 2. That’s what Reggie has contributed.

    If this team goes out and wins 10 games this yr then Reggie will be deemed a genius.
