Travel day to New Orleans . . . a few links to stories in print and/or on the Web in Bay Area News Group papers:

To find out why it will be no Brees in the secondary for the Raiders against the Saints Friday night, click here.

To read about how Raiders coach Dennis Allen has borrowed heavily from Saints coach Sean Payton, click here.

To read Tim Kawakami’s column about why this team is a better fit for Allen, click here.

For a link to Friday’s noontime chat that I’ll be conducting from New Orleans, click here.

(There’s a noontime chat on the 49ers as well, which I’m guessing is of interest to exactly zero people who read this blog).

    “Another” MVP type season from Vick?

    When was the first one?

    Do they print MVP awards in November? If so he might win one.

    Forgot Rob Ryan was in NOLA.

    Podunk is a small city in the middle of nowhere, usually encircled by a perimeter 2 to 3 lane highway, with feeder routes to outlying shanty towns. The main destination is the stripmall surrounding the Wal Mart Supercenter. Podunk people drive around in circles to get to eat at the subway or mcdonalds inside the WalMart.

    Stockton is not podunk. Not by any defintion.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Is that like the “California Penal League” with Ricky Vaughn?

    Been a while. Driving thru Sunday and then on to beautiful Fresno.

    @Purv

    Stockton is ranked pretty high on the crime list every year. check it out.

    all my best friends growing up were actually mexican dudes, not blacks or asians and DEFINATELY not some hayseed wannabe kids driving trucks with liftkits, going to bonfires and drinking beers by the river

    I didn’t become “country” until I met my hot little blonde wife and she moved me out to a town of 300, lol

    so it’s been about 7 years and I’ve been blogging here for 5.

  • No Mas Diamante

    I actually would like to see Moore in the slot with Streater and Brice outside.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I think the rule of thumb on the Podunkery level of a town should be if they have nudies.

    If you got a ta-ta joint, unless it is one of those funky truck stop/nudies in the back place, then you don’t qualify for Podunk status.

    Stockton has quite a few tittie joints from what I remember.

    decker backpedals faster than criner sprints….

    Elway

    big strong physical, rocket arm , mobile, tough and most of all clutch. when he had the ball at the end of games you expected him to win even , when he was on less talented teams.

    Elway was also wildly erratic , and very streaky passing the ball. Some if this was a result of lacking touch on his pass especially early in his career, some was the gunslingers decision making that cost him through out his tenure. he often threw from strange positions while on the run that affected his accuracy as well.

    In my mind pryor is a better faster version of elway. he has the same kind of competitive edge and clutch gene and every bit the passing talent, i think he could be even more accurate than elway was.

    This goes with out saying but of course couldnt dream of being the type of speedster or runner that pryor is, not in this universe or the next.

    is this what the davis’s saw when they drafted him then demanded that he plays?

    hmmmmmmm

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

    No, I’m sure they’ll be looking for actual NFL quarterback talent instead.

    Podunk has Ta-ta joints. You just have to head off the circle into the feeder routes to the shanty towns. The locals and baptists ministers all know where to find them.

    hahaha, good one dutch

  • Myopinion

    I like criner, just observation.
    Hes been beaten out by butler,i think
    If hes the slot,does he fall into the catehorie of aus, rivera?
    Only he cant be audibled inside to help block.
    also if hes the slot that means our 3best arent on the field.
    moore,streater,butler?saying butler cause hes getting reps with the 1s.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    ausberry runs a 4.4 40, criner 4.76…even our tes are faster.

    trade Tyler Wilson to Chicago??

  • inonewordraider

    is mcgloin a dime a dozen? meaning why not just carry two qb’s and stash him or Wilson on the ps?

    Is that a word?

  • RaiderRockstar

    @inonewordraider

    coaches Olson & Flip are obviously in love with Terrelle Pryor. Reggie & Dennis? not so much.

    it should be interesting this season to see if Mark Davis says something about wanting #6 in the game if Flynn struggles at all

    we know Al Davis wouldn’t hesitate…

  • guest123

    Last night on NFLN, the commentators were saying that most teams will only carry 2 QB’s.

    Made me think, if we have little separation of our 4 QB’s and you know there will be plenty of available QB’s on the cut line, why not slash our QB depth to 2 QB’s and just pick one up of the wire when the need arises?

  • guest123

    Why not slash our TE’s to just 2 as well?

    It’s not like they will be scooped up off the wire. We have a 4 TE crap sammich as well.

  • RaiderRockstar

    why not slash our QB depth to 2 QB’s and just pick one up of the wire when the need arises?

    ***

    @G123

    because McGloin has been a “pleasant surprise” and Reggie wasted a draft pick and a little guaranteed money on Ty Wilson … GM probably wants to save face and the coaching staff probably wants to groom McGloin to see if maybe by this time next year he’s competing for the #1 job instead of #3 job

    It’ll be interesting to see if BigMac is willing to swallow his pride

  • the famous dr robert

    Just dropped some awesome qb rating knowledge on 95.7 the game.

    Things definitely pointing in that direction.

    ______________________________________________

    Isn’t the word on Wilson that he isn’t that bright? Cannot pick up the mental aspect of the game?
    Not sure a team would want to trade a pick for a guy being outpreformed by a UDFA?

  • guest123

    If Ty Wilson can’t leapfrog McGloin by the end of the 3rd preseason game, he should be cut. No scholarships. Send a message Reggie!

  • DutchRaider77

    @guest123

    Only riveria and Kasa are eligible for PS?

    Gordon and Ausberry cannot be put on the PS?

    I’ve been here for five years plus. Not going anywhere. Seen many a racist troll like you and they fade away. To the posters who actually are solid football guys here, I appreciate you posts and Raider acumen. Frustrating when your time is limited and you’re trying to scroll thru a thousand posts every other one is from the same racist troll. Ruins the blog.
    *******
    Lol. Anothe “racist!” accuser with no proof.

    Just another of the mindless masses crying out about alleged atrocities who can’t back it up with evidence.

    Seems to run rampant in……the Pryor Brigade.

    No surprise. Proof isn’t necessary to holler REAL LOUD.

    too funny really.

  • guest123

    @ Dutch

    Whoever wins the top two spots, regardless of PS eligibility should be on roster. If Aus or Gordon are exposed and lost, oh well…

    it’d be ideal to have the qb on the ps learning the O

    allows you to keep vital contributors like jones on st

  • Whoknows
  • SnBG

    If we can why don’t we keep 4 QBs?

    Wilson is a project and we don’t really knowq how McGloin would be in reg season games. He did overthrow Butler in the endzone and Butler saved him.
