Thursday, August 15th, 2013 at 6:10 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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).

    how does a back up QB with two career starts get tendonitis…what’s going to happen when he plays 16 games in a season…

    ******************************

    I don’t think it will be put to the test.

    Flynn’s body strikes me as one that will not stand up to 64 quarters of NFL football.

    40 might be pushing it.

    Did you see Cenote Azul when you drove down by Bacalar?
    ====================================================

    Probably. My better half has a passion for them and we visited many and swam in more than a few. If I bothered opening a google map, my memory might be refreshed.

  • RaiderRockstar

    @JFB

    who cares if Flynn has the build of a 14 year old boy?

    Tony Sparano’s mastermind O-Line won’t allow him to be touched. Aren’t you the one always telling folks just how GOOD our line is and how OL in general is overrated because skill position “playmakers” determine the win/loss column ??

    FWIW – I agree with you

    Flipping all of his critics off.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Yes skill positions matter more, but life of a QB is that you are going to get hit.

    I was pleasantly suprised he got up rather quickly after getting steamrolled last week.

    Shouldn’t take many much harder hits than that.

  • the famous dr robert

    Been thinking though.

    Riff clearly thought I was “serious” and made a comment about my being unchristian.

    Interesting for an atheist to say but perhaps I should set a better example.

    So I will try to be a kinder, gentler doctor. Improve my bedside manner, so to speak.

    I will try not refer to the Pryor Brigade as idiots, morons, retards, cretins, etc.

    After all, it’s not their fault. Lol.

    But it is interesting that my many (few) detractors all hate me for one common reason:

    My stance on Pryor. It’s a free Raider Nation (don’t us that term often, a little cliche) after all.

    So bring on the attacks. They’re always fun.

    Just remember to:

    Say My Name……Sweeties.

    @VicTafur: More Reece on Flynn: “He has a good command, a high football IQ and he is getting used to our tendencies. That takes a little time.”

    U will see. U will see.

    Vick has completed 13 of 15 passes for 199 yards this preseason. If he keeps playing like that, he and Kelly are going to have a whole lot of fun together.

    “The Girls” claim they hate my presence here but in the next breath say how hilarious my supposed meltdown was.

    Well which is it?

    Seems we know the answer, given ur complete inability to stop talking about me.

    Btw, be sure to get next week’s copy of “People’s 100 Most Famous Bloggers”.

    Gallop poll says 62% disapprove of Hussein. So 38% of the public is either brain dead (see this blog) zombies or refuses to be informed.

    In the meantime, for all things Doctor Robert, be entertained by the soothing convos of “The Gossip Girls”.

    Lol. Well u WERE talking about me. As always.

    But I’m glad u like the “professional” trolls. Seeing as how I’m just an amateur troll.

    I guess ur more of a Gossip Señorita but still.

    I would like to see that as well.

    If the worry is that the freak athlete is relying a bit too much on freak athleticism, being against the non-freakiest of athletes as opponents just stunts his growth, IMO.

    I know I should stay away from the trolls. But I work hard. I have been coming here for years now. I look forward to catching up on team and reading people’s viewpoints and opinions . I hate it when trolls ruin that experience. Won’t engage further.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see us run a lot of 2-TE sets with Rivera on the left; he can chip down the RE as he’s leaving the line, giving Barron an extra half-second to set up.
