Veldheer’s dad says surgery went well

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, August 16th, 2013 at 3:05 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Jim Veldheer, the father of Raiders tackle Jared Veldheer, tweeted Friday “Jared is in recovery. All went well. Praise the Lord.’’

Veldheer underwent surgery to repair a torn left triceps and likely be placed on the designated for return injured reserve list, meaning the earliest he could return would be in the eighth game of the season on Nov. 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Raiders won’t make that move until cutting the roster to the final 53, with Veldheer included in that number. He would then be placed on injured reserve, taking him off the roster, and the Raiders can add another player.

    Are you for real? WTF does the NFL network have to do with hiring a coach?
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Like I said Al was a meddler and destroyed the rep of the Raiders. This has carried over to the hiring of coaches and the press seeing us a door mat. That’s why coaches didn’t want to come here.

    Sure it is, Lennon and McCartney much more sophisticated musically.

    Very true. The Beatles along with Sir George Martin, did more than anyone to advance the “art” of recording music during the 60′s…

    Cash wrote songs from the deepest, darkest recesses of his soul…With an edge to them that will never be duplicated..IMO…

    And Glenny…what the fk does Vick have to do with anything? I never mentioned him and never really liked him

    Still vick has been a successful enough QB in this league…..I think you believe I am Mistic which I am not

    Great, our line’s going to be even worse. Looks like Pryor will be starting this season after all cuz Flynn won’t make it 4 games behind that line.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Cash was damn good but i will take iggy and the stooges

  • SnBG

    You think?!
    I thought he’d improved some with the accuracy.
    Seems to me that going to House for guidance on the throwing motion had paid off a little.
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    Pryor has gotten better but until he makes better decisions and reads the field better he isn’t going to start. Show that kind of improvement and he will take the job from Flynn.

    In the preseason, Q’s have to come in and complete 70+% of their passes for some yardage. If they are playing against scrubs, they should be completing 80+%. Heck Vick was 9 for his first 9 last night before he choked. Pryor completing 60% of his passes against scrubs and then throwing a very bad INT ain’t good. And if you noticed, as his stint out there went on last time, his mechanics went from looking like he was being personally coached by Scott Linehan, to looking like he was personally being coached by Lindsay Lohan.

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

    I don’t think there is any doubt he has improved his mechanics, strength and accuracy. But that means he goes from a 40 QB rating all the way up to 50. A 25% increase, but still not good enough to start in the league.

    Cash was great and a bit tortured. The Beatles wrote songs in a different genre. Cash was country and the Beatles where RnR that evolved into psychedelic, mystical and beautiful music. Both contributed so much to music and anyone who downplays either one of them doesn’t understand music history or music.

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

    Naaa, I was just using Vick as an example, that he completed 100% of his passes, against scrubs til his last play. NFL quality Q’s HAVE to go out and dominate second teamers and scrubs. Pryor didn’t do that last game. And BTW I don’t think you are Mistic. You make too much sense. But I do think you were cryonically frozen in 1983, so most of your football knowledge comes from the golden age of 1975-1982, you know, before the forward pass.

    Nah…seen that.
    Bottom line: We don’t have a tight end.
    Wouldn’t mind seeing what Kasa can do.
    Not big on guys going from defence lineman to tightend but this guy could be an interesting blocker.

    Beatles and the Temps where of different genres and life experiences. You can’t compare them as to who had the better music but I would say the Beatles where more creative in their music. Both groups music was great.

    Then maybe he’d better forget baseball coaches and go with guy who knows darts.

  • SnBG

    Of course Motown did more in music than the Beatles. Motown was an industry. Beatles where one group.

    Isn’t it a little to early to say that. We have 2 new picks and Aus may have improved his blocking enough. Aus can catch the ball though and his YAC potential is through the roof.
