Allen eyes Moore as team’s No. 1 receiver

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 at 3:25 pm in Oakland Raiders.

ALAMEDA – Tight end Brandon Myers and fullback Marcel Reece were the Raiders top two receivers last season. If coach Dennis Allen gets his way, his wide receivers won’t be so overshadowed this season.
Denarius Moore led Raiders wide receivers with 51 receptions for 741 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. Still, he appeared to regress from his rookie season, when he burst onto the scene as a consistent playmaker.
At one point last season, Moore got benched during a game late last season for lackluster play.
“He’s a guy that we’re counting on being our No. 1 receiver,” Allen said of Moore. “But we need all those guys. … At the end of the day, we’ll have five, maybe six receivers that have a chance to help this football team.”
The Raiders get back Jacoby Ford from a foot injury that sidelined him all of last season. They also drafted Brice Butler and signed free agents Josh Cribbs, Conner Vernon and Sam McGuffie.
Juron Criner and Rod Streater showed promise last season as rookies. Allen said he expects significant growth from both players this season.
“I feel like a vet,” Streater said. “Just over a year, I felt like I learned so much, from coverages and plays and things like that. I feel like I understand a whole lot more and can contribute more than I did last year.”
Some of the current receivers had difficulty getting in synch with quarterback Carson Palmer last season. Too often, they ran incorrect routes or weren’t where they were supposed to be.
Allen said all it takes for one of the receivers to become the go-to receiver is showing the ability to catch the ball and make plays on a consistent basis.
“We need guys to go up and make plays for us,” Allen said. “It’s understanding the route combinations, understanding the different techniques of running certain routes. Those are all certain things that you gain from experience. What a receiver is paid to do is go up and make plays on the ball and that’s what we’re looking for.”

    Of course, I think Mark will go to his comfort zone & hire Gruden.

    —————————————————————————–
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    I’ll stick with DA as he is here now and Gruden is a pipe dream. As for other possible Raider HCs don’t even care right now. I’m willing to see what DA does over the next to years. 6-10 and DA will stay.

    The name Tyrone is believed to derive from the Greek “Turannos” meaning “sovereign” or “king.” Additionally, Tryone is a location name in Ulster county in northern Ireland, which is believed to derive from the Irish Gaelic “Tir Eoghain”meaning “land of Eoghan” or “land of the noble.” “Owen” is an anglicized form of “Eoghan,” so it also means “land of Owen.”
