Raiders get some linebacker help

NAPA — With a handful of linebackers injured, the Raiders turned to a familiar face for some immediate help and signed veteran Omar Gaither on Monday.
Gaither played in seven games for the Raiders last season. He started four of the final five games once the Raiders decided to bury Rolando McClain on the bench.
The Raiders are without Miles Burris (knee), Kaluka Maiava (foot), Billy Boyko and Sio Moore right now, though Moore sent out a Tweet on Sunday night saying that he expected to return to practice today.
Gaither played in the middle last season. However, he is versatile enough to play on the outside, too. Nick Roach has the middle locked down for now.
On Sunday, Burris said he isn’t sure when he will be cleared to practice. He still is recovering from offseason surgery that forced him to miss all of the offseason workouts and mini camps.
Maiava suffered an injury Saturday and exited the field on crutches and with his left foot in a protective boot. The nature of Moore’s injury isn’t known. We should know shortly whether he is healthy enough to get back on the field.
Gaither has started 44 of the 84 games he has played during his seven-year NFL career.

    Great…higher a new coach, we go 5-11, and call for his head again. Wash/repeat every year. Great idea…

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

    We got rid of the coach who went 8-8 his 1st year. How about this time we hire a real coach with actual credentials. You know a Lovie Smith, Gruden, David Shaw.

    Are you asking to hire a experienced coach? Stop using such logic….get out here. But those guys wouldn’t be “Reggie guys”

    To blow up an entire team and then hire a rookie HC is just either A). Completely Idiotic B). Completely genius

    So far we have 4-12 to show…leaning towards A

    Best case scenario: Flynn looks like Alex Smith circa 2013.

    Worst case scenario: Flynn looks like Smith circa 2007.

    It is what it is. DMAC better Beast-Up.

    DA had excellent credentials. And you wave around this 8-8 card. All that money for .500 ball. Exciting…

    The guy who talked up how “this organization” not “we” was able to get the first shutout in 10 years over the worst team in football at home.

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

    And if he had said “We,” you’d be slamming him for his arrogance and presumptuousness.

    I’m sorry, Allen isn’t going anywhere. It’s hard but try and live with it. It hurts I know but you can grow from this experience.

    If they go 4-12 again or 5-11 and the D still sucks good chance he’s gone.

    In the ‘NFL NEWS’ scroll on NFLN the Raiders news is Pryor saying he just recently learned how to throw a football.

    The “experts” criticize us if we get a veteran w experience like Palmer and then if we get an inexperienced one like we’ll have this yr.

    The laffing stops when we start winning.

    In fairness, when we acquired Palmer a yr. and a half ago NFLN did a segment titled “Are the Raiders a serious SB contender”?

    Man. We fell from grace faster than a Zeppelin carrying Rosie ODonnell.

    James Trapp was the epitomy of what was wrong with the Raiders for years.

    Hey Raiderman99, I don’t think anyone really respects Tits either. Remember after the Cinci blowout & all the players running up to Hue to hug him? Think anybody will be doing that if Tits gets canned & he’s coaching DB’s in Dungver?
    ===========================================
    I’m pretty sure there would be a few. Not many.

    Good point though. I’d forgotten about that.

    Of course, this is all speculation and reading between the lines…and I don’t think it’s fair to TITS to do that…

    But I’m not convinced TITS is well liked.
