Janikowski wants to play 7-8 more years, finish career with Raiders

ALAMEDA – Kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler were inextricably linked the past 13 seasons. Now that Lechler is gone, Janikowski is left to go it alone as the Raiders most-tenured player.
The kicking duo was inseparable since they joined the Raiders in 2000, from the field to the locker room to the golf course. It became difficult mentioning one without the other.
“Shane and me were such good buddies,” Janikowski said. “But it’s business, and we got to move on.”
Lechler moved on to the Houston Texans. Janikowski insists that he isn’t going to follow suit once his contract ends after this season.
In fact, Janikowski said he intends to play seven or eight more seasons, if not longer, and he is hopeful that he finishes his career with the team that selected him in the first round of the 2000 NFL draft.
“I want to play as much as I can,” Janikowski said. “I want to win the Super Bowl. That’s the ultimate goal.”
Janikowski is playing for his eighth head coach. Change is something he is quite accustomed to playing for a Raiders team that has been in flux since they played in the Super Bowl at the end of the 2002 season.
He admits that he still doesn’t know the names of all the players he sees in the locker room right now.
Still, he’s having fun, kicking as well as ever and taking his job far more seriously than he did early in his career.
To that end, Janikowski has shed at least 10 pounds – he refused to give the exact figure – and looks as lean as at any point since he joined the Raiders.
“You’re getting older and there are a lot of guys out there younger than you,” Janikowski said in explaining the reason for the weight loss. “You just got to keep up with it. It’s your job. You got to take it seriously. … At first, (as a) young guy at 24, 26, you don’t think that way. Now it’s totally different. I got a family, two little kids, it’s totally different.”

    flynn will get the job because of a combination of his pay, the fact that he’s Reggies guy, and that he’s a veteran and they expect him to make a fewer mistakes..
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Those are valid reasons (vet and money) to start him, but are they good enough to keep him on the field if he doesn’t play well?

    Here’s what Mistic said when the Raiders took Pryor:

    Pryor lacks the lateral quickness to play wr, he has zero experience at that position as well. pryor at wr is a darker faster matt jones, minus the coke straw.

    he can spend this year in the meeting room and practicing so he may compete for a back up qb spot next year.

    (So you know I’m not making it up, here’s the link http://www.ibabuzz.com/oaklandraiders/2011/08/22/pryor-is-a-raider/)

    Props to Mistic for calling it as it is. He did not hop on the bandwagon simply because Pryor is black.

    HOWEVER, nothing has happened in that time that should make someone think TP is an NFL-caliber QB. Pryor is entering his third season and none of the coaches say positive things about him. They say he has a ways to go, etc.

    Interesting that he got it EXACTLY right.

    What happened? His hero Campbell went down.

    U need to realize that when Pryor was drafted, he was a perceived threat to Campbell being here long term. Hence, the reality.

    But the moment Campbell went down, and we traded for Palmer, spelling the doom of Campbell as a Raider, missdick immediately considered Palmer the devil and Pryor to be a god-like super being.

    That’s when I started roasting him. And will continue to until Pryor fails miserably and missdick loses his mind.

    Btw, it’s the Pryor Brigade that can’t stand the medicine the doctor gives.

    Oh well.

    Or it could be that Pryor looked clueless in practice in front of the entire team week after week, which is what was reported. That would leave DA in the position of having to start someone that hadn’t earned it in the eyes of the rest of the team.

    That’s not really a great way to establish an identity of excellence for a rookie coach.

    But I guess it’s easier to drive an agenda by distorting reality and manufacturing a supposed conspiracy to hold the next HOF running QB back.

    It’s easy to pick on Allen because of the record last year but you need to look at the situation with the players we had and the injuries. DA gets a pass in my book for last year. This is really his first year and he should stay for another year no matter what happens this year.

    link? source?

    this is a lie

    it was reported that pryor DID NOT practice with the team until week 14 when he had his first chance to run scout team prepping for carolina.

    Up to that point he was relegated to meetings and drills, this according to pryor.

    knapp and allen didnt give him the time of day and were only exposed because of his week 14 scout play.

    from that point on we saw and heard more and more of pryor because his talent is simply far too big to keep a lid on.

    allen looked like an idiot and knapp was canned

    He probably still believes in the ZBS as many HCs in the league do. He’s smart enough and flexible enough to see that our players are better suited to power. One could argue that we gave up to quickly on the ZBS but DA understands that DMAC fits better in the power.

    Most HCs wll start their #2s over their # 3s anytime. Plus DA doesn’t fill Pryor is or was ready. No big deal.

    I believe the only reason Leinart was with the raiders is because He knew Knapps “system” for all of that’s worth.

    The Organization, imo understood exactly what they had in Leinart, and they could have benefited by giving TP a longer look under real game conditions.

    You go with you’re #2, especially when you think you’re #3 isn’t ready.
