Raiders live chat at 8 a.m. PDT on Tuesday

Monday, August 5th, 2013 at 8:51 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Join me for a breakfast-time live chat, as we catch up on all things Raiders related through the first two weeks or so of training camp and on the verge of their first exhibition game.
The chat begins at 8 a.m. PDT as we attempt to accommodate those from other parts of the country and the world, as well as those who typically get short shrift during the lunch hour.
Here’s the link: http://www.contracostatimes.com/raiders/ci_23798229/live-chat-raiders-training-camp-updates-tuesday-8

    If we listen to the media we are in some serious dire straits. “Worst team in football” most say. Some don’t have us doing ANYTHING decent for at least a couple years. Every acquisition that is made is boring and seems inconsequential.

    Matt Flynn as our QB? He may be good, he may not.

    It seems any potentially exciting thing is immediately quashed.

    There have been only two times in the past YEAR I have had that Raider excitement. One was the win vs Pittsburgh last season and the other when Hub Arkush announced he was “100% certain” that Gruden was coming back. The Gruden thing…was angrily denied immediately by the Raiders which at the time I interpreted as “No…we are not going to do something that cool and u should be ashamed for believing we would”. Gruden haters are glad it was a false story of course.

    Then, in a bold move to bolster the most important position on the team we acquire the most boring, milquetoast QB we could possibly find in Matt Flynn. I’m not hating on Flynn…he may be awesome but he is ‘BORING’ as hell and there are hardly any “experts” who believe he is any better than one of the worst in the entire league. Awesome.

    Then, some excitement happens with news of Pryor lighting it up in camp and once again the Raiders are quick to piss in that koolaid. “He’s not ready”, “he needs more work”, “maybe someday” or similar comments.

    I’m not saying DA and Reggie don’t know what they’re doing but all they’ve given us so far is 4-12 and most say is the worst roster in football and equally uninspiring with Flynn at the helm it’s the most BORING roster in football.

    I’m not saying we’re gonna suck. I think we will surprise a lot of “experts” this year…but it’d be nice to have something exciting and fun surrounding this team. If we’re gonna suck, can we at least have something fun to focus on?

    Maybe it’s just me. We all have our own reasons for enjoying the football season.

    Coaching doesn’t care about depth chart right now, depth chart will start taking shape after 2nd and 3rd games of season

    lol…enough child…he was not drafted…


    It doesn’t matter, he was part of the 2012 draft class and Reg got him
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    No he wasn’t.
    They call them Undrafted Rookie FREE AGENTS for a reason.

  • theghostronin79

    Gordon’s the first-string TE.

    ===========

    WTF? is that a typo?

    Well, maybe not if we indeed ARE going to be a Run heavy team. He’ll just be another power blocker with Auz being our receiver.

    also a little surprised to see Butler coming just behind DMO and Streater….He’ll definitely be in the rotation.

  • Marks hair

    Streeter was not drafted that means Reggie missed him… I like a lot of Reggies moves this year but last year’s draft was not very good.

    Streeter was a free agent and that means he could have gone wherever he wanted. Reggie didn’t sell Streeter and his agent on the Raiders. Streeters agent knew the Raiders had a lack of wide receiver Talent…

    Streeter chose us because he might make the team

  • dplunk

    why would you pick a quarterback of the future when you already have a quarterback of the future and your D line is week?
    ——————————————————
    Nothing wrong with have multiple competent QB’s on your team, as long as you can afford them

  • mcfadden20.

    Btw I like Al to tell us who does he compare our draft class to and call it failure , and please don’t say you comparing it to Al’s recent draft classes

    @Odouls

    that depth chart obviously doesn’t take injuries into consideration

    if it did, Burris/Watson/Sims certainly wouldn’t be on there. They haven’t played 1 snap @ training camp!

    isn’t it a tad too early to be judging this years draft class as a success, or failure…idk…maybe it’s just my thinking

  • Violent Hands

    Best way I can describe it is, the players and coaches act as if they know something that no one else does and that they can’t wait to let in the rest of the world on their little secret. In other words, they are very confident.

    Wow man, really? Like Pryor is getting a chance this year because we have no Qb’s ?

    ******************************
    It’s not just you. Someone gave me tickets to last year’s SD game and the only reason I went was to see TP, who no matter the outcome, was exciting.
    Milquetoast is exactly how I would describe Flynn.
    The only chance this team has is riding on Pryor’s play making ability. With Pryor you will see exciting football, with Flynn not so much.

    this year however I feel like we have a bunch of guys that really want to be here. guys playing for contracts, young hungry players that love football, and vets that want to win now

    it’s easy to root for these guys


    Young talented guys playing the game for the love of it = success for long time

    How can you judge last years draft based on 1 year? N how could you call it failure when the first pick was a early 4th rounder? would have been much different story if Reg had pcks in first 3 rounds as well

    That comment you made had me smiling and happy for you. I never met you or would wish nothing bad to you, but it was the smartest move you made.

    You worked hard selling cars, raising a family and attending College. The degree you selected was not easy. Finance is difficult and time consuming and you completed your four years.

    I’m happy for you and wish you tremendous success.

    I’ll accept your apology later for your terrible debate on Huff as a corner as last year proved I was “RIGHT”, LOL titty monkey.

    Well really it’s called trolling if some one makes a comment in the same context like you did? So it’s okay to downplay Burris getting a starting job because A Curry was injured , it’s trolling to say the only reason he’s in the starting competition is because lack of talent at QB position ? So we have double standards here ? N it’s all good as long as they favor your side ? Makes perfect sense

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    One guy reggie should have drafted and thats TAVON AUSTIN.. he would have made this offense about 10x better could do it all. NFL network mayock said the most explosive player he has ever seen…said that yest.

    in 4 years never missed 1 practice. Throw him in with DMAC.. woulda been wow.. im still cool with hayden…

    but Raiders should have taken a chance on Tyrann mathieu too.. one scout said he is pound for pound best player in camp right now.

    However i saw him get toasted in coverage at a practice on sat.. i saw video of it. Larry Fitz outjumped him and he was a second late at tyring to defend.. and Peterson ran right by him and PALMER threw a deep pass …

    TAVON austin was one guy i wanted.

    Titty Monkey made a lot of mistakes last year, he is clueless about the offense, but that doesn’t mean he can’t improve. Like I told you last year, rookie owner, GM, HC, DC, and knapp is a recipe for disaster.
