Allen eyes Moore as team’s No. 1 receiver

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.”

    I probably would never say too much about Pryor if not for the supabigot.

    But I’m gonna counter his bullsh1t every time with the truth.

    And laugh at him the whole way until his ultimate humiliation.

    I like Pryor and have no beef with anyone here but missdick the supabigot.

    Like u with me.

    Funny u have a white wife but have no problems with missdick saying she’s a suspected white supremacist.

    Sounds like u lack the most fundamental loyalty of a husband.

But you just get your ass handed to you by a division rival & he’s laughing?! Quite the competitor there. You remember Hue or Gruden yucking it up with an opposing coach.

    IF DA doesn’t perform to Reggie’s liking

    some 2014 hc candidates:

    Davis Shaw
    Jon Gruden
    Lovie Smith
    Tony Sparano
    Greg Olson

    =================
    Shaw should be my 1st option. Young, smart, should have beat ND(got Raidered) on the road, beat Oregon on the road and gets the most out of his players plus his style is tailor made for the NFL.

    Right now I’d slightly take Lovie over Gruden just because he always commanded the respect of his players, went to the super bowl with Grossman, has experience as a HC, and didn’t win a ring yet, which makes me think he would be more hungry than Gruden to win.

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

    He said Goethel practiced LS all week, and Lechler said that wasn’t true, and that Goethel didn’t practice with him and the STs unit.
    ——————————————-
    Well my recollection was that Goethal practiced long snapping, “on the side”, but was never put into a practice situation that required him to snap under fire.

    Water under the bridge. DA appears to be a pretty buttoned down guy.

    I don’t think lying is a part of His habit.

    i’ve been hearing the chucky rant for years… he’s NOT going to leave ESPN.

    other teams have offered him a HC’ing job over the years. he’s stayed away from it

    he’s not going to come back to the raiders

    to tell you the truth, i don’t want him to! he had an absolute all star cast around him then added Gannon (Bruce Allen did the finding of the players BTW)

    in TB, chucky destroyed that team once DUNGY’S TEAM retired. they didn’t do didley since

    my vote is for Shaw all the way. good points on him. he’s got winner chicken dinner written all over him.

    Lovie? yea that’s the second best choice. agreed

    » Negotiations regarding the team’s stadium situation:

    “We’re talking, and there are some encouraging signs. Mark to Poole….
    We’ve done plenty of talking in the past, and we still don’t have a long-term solution. Oakland still is in the driver’s seat. We want to stay. We don’t want another short-term lease extension. We want something that will work for us, for the city and for the NFL.

    “But if we can’t get something done, I’ve got to do what’s best for the team. For the last 10 years, we’ve been deficit-spending. But we signed the agreements, so it’s nobody’s fault but our own.”

    he’s not going to come back to the raiders
    ======================
    I think he would choose Oakland before any other places because he’s tight with the owner. Plus, Mark would be desperate, rumors are that he has already offered him a front office job. I really think this is the only place where he would consider leaving his kush job.
    =========================

    to tell you the truth, i don’t want him to! he had an absolute all star cast around him then added Gannon (Bruce Allen did the finding of the players BTW)
    ==========================
    Agree, but the players will respect him, that’s half of it. I also don’t think Allen was much of a personnel guy, just a contract guy.
    =============================

    in TB, chucky destroyed that team once DUNGY’S TEAM retired. they didn’t do didley since
    ======================
    Agree again, McKay & Dungy built the squad & Gruden lived off of their defense those 2 created, and Gruden ran McKay out of town. Stupid move. Trust me, I don’t want Gruden having total control over personnel decisions.

    ===================================
    my vote is for Shaw all the way. good points on him. he’s got winner chicken dinner written all over him.

    Lovie? yea that’s the second best choice. agreed

    I want SHaw too, but Lovie is intriguing to me, just like to see him with a good OC. Maybe he would get Hue here as an OC.
