McKenzie checking out 49ers-Broncos talent

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, August 8th, 2013 at 6:45 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Colleague Steve Corkran immediately spotted Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie in the front row of the press box, keeping an eye on what was going on during warmups of the Broncos-49ers game at Candlestick Park.

Checking out the Broncos for the Week 3 Monday night battle in Denver?

Maybe a little. But more likely, McKenzie is looking at players for both teams that may not make two of the more loaded rosters in the NFL.

Here’s a link to my story about some things to look for in the Raiders preseason opener Friday night against Dallas.

A link to my story on how Aaron Rodgers helped Matt Flynn develop a thick skin when it comes to outside distractions.

    I saw a team last year that gave up, not nearly the fight they had in the two previous years in my opinion

    but talent wise, I think we’re undermanned. so da’s and the staff squeezing the most out of these guys is our only hope I think
    ===============================
    No offense,but this statement is way off base.You might not like DA,but there is no way the team quit last year.They were playing much better at the end of the year than they were to start the season.

    I know I said above that everybody should be eligible (but was being a lil sarcastic) Houston, Streater, Wiz, Veldheer, Jano, should not be eligible imo, most people see them having good year

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Bill ROMO wants to see FLYNN to walk on the field with some BUFFALO NUTS and take on the field like he owns it

  • PlunkforHOF

    Fairly decent outing by both Iggles and Belicheats to begin.

  • lefty12

    Is TJ Hayden eligible?If so I’ll take him.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Why would he not be? Rookie, and to some a controversial pick.

  • Whoknows

    Gotta bring up the F’n tuck rule. SMH

  • realtruraider

    Not sure a rookie 1st rounder should be eligible, he shouldn’t be underrated, but I guess he is by some so……………

    MUP List.
    No rules, but a scoring scheme I don’t remember seeing implemented. Players picked might give us a clue of the criteria. Got a date to work off of, as well.

    Pastor Napoleon ‏@napoleonkaufman 4 Aug
    Spoke with my guy @CelReece45 after chapel and we both agree, something different going on with the squad. It’s real nice y’all!

    From a few days ago, I hope the difference they’re talking about works out.

  • RaiderRockstar

    FWIW, I wanted the Raiders to draft Ansah at #3

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    I wanted ansah after the senior bowl.. but from the practice footage i watched, hayden looks like the real deal

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    lativious murray playing 2nite

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Raiders passed up on DIon Jordan/ and Ansah.

    DION was playing everywhere on sun.. pass rusher.. MLB… coverage LB

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    ROMO is saying one draft pick might look like a shocker..

    BRICE BUTLER.. he looks like a player.

    Romo talking about SIO MOORE, one on one pass rusher.. got ROMO excitied. Was impressed

  • PlunkforHOF

    I think I wanted Warmack in the draft.. But in the long run I’m thinking DJ was a pick that’s going to be great for us.
