Sims among returning players

It managed to escape my own apparently poor eyesight, but defensive tackle Pat Sims was suited up and on the field with the Raiders as the media window closed Tuesday.

We’ll find out soon from coach Dennis Allen if Sims was simply going through individual drills or if he was included in team sessions, as fellow defensive tackle Vance Walker was Monday.

Either way, it’s an encouraging sign provided Sims makes it through practice. He tried to come back midway through camp and then ended up limping off halfway through, not taking the field again until Tuesday.

    The OL was the reason Flynn struggled by Dmac sucks? idk doesnt sound consistent
    ============================================

    Flynn has been good in other situations. McFadden has been terrible for four different coaching staffs. Sounds pretty consistent to me.

    Yeah EastOR Warmack’s great but we also had corners who could’t stop a forward pass.
    Fact is we were/still are desperately low on talent most everywhere….
    —————
    agreed but with our lack of talent on the roster you cant take risky picks in the 1st 2 rounds.
    —————————–
    Hayden isn’t risky.
    ————
    rooting hard for Hayden but he did almost die on the last time he took a hit on the football field. That coupled with many teams having him slotted for round 2 = risk.Hoping he rebounds and becomes an all pro cb..we will see
    ———————–
    1) Doctors
    2) Many teams also had him as the #1 corner. His tape and measurables show a player worthy of being picked where he was.

    I saw another fan rating story that instead of us being # 32 they had us at # 27.

    A part of the criteria is attendance at games and % of fans as compared to capacity.

    Under that criteria it’s understandable we wouldn’t score high on that list.

    Flynn has 2 career starts, boy your definition of good in other situations is hilarious. Couldve sworn Dmac one or two seasons not games averaged over 5yds per carry.

    Getting tough? WTF are you talking about?

    Prison ain’t all that tough btw.

  • eastoaklandraider

    oline is the most important position behind QB, if the line cant protect Flynn or Pryor, or open up holes in the run game, be ready for a ton of 3 and outs and a very tired defense giving up record setting points allowed. If you guys thought last year was bad with Palmer brace yourself for however long Flynn makes it(which wont be long). Pryor will come in and mask some of the oline problems but even he will take a beating.

    Unfortunately, Watson is going to be useless this year. McKenzie has more work to do. He’s got to find a useful OL guy at the final cut. Good luck.

    Hopefully he’s been doing everything he can to master the mental aspect. Get him some reps and work on his footwork and he’d probably be better than Barron rather quickly. He’s an athletic guy, he just needs to continue to learn/master the proper technique.

    RT is not LT, big difference.

  • Twocents

    I was full of hope a month ago but now we just don’t have the horses to pull the wagon.
    I believe that the lines are the most important part of a football team, they have to be dominate.
    We have nada on the lines. Every practice (pads or not) produces another injury. It is going to be a long and ugly season, as usual.
