By Steve Corkran
Thursday, September 12th, 2013 at 11:09 am in Oakland Raiders.

Ten former Raiders players and coaches are among the Pro Football Hall of Fame 2014 Modern-Era Nominees, with punter Ray Guy a Seniors Committee Finalist.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame revealed the list Wednesday night. Here is a list of the players and coaches with Raiders tied on the initial list:
RB Roger Craig, WR Tim Brown, OT Jim Lachey, C Don Mosebar, G Steve Wisniewski, DT Ted Washington, CB Eric Allen, CB Albert Lewis, coach Tom Flores and coach Jon Gruden. As we mentioned, Guy is a Seniors Committee Finalist.
The aforementioned players are among 126 nominees. In November, the list will be pared to 25. In January, that list will be reduced to the 15 finalists. Inductees will be announced the day before the Super Bowl.

    Maybe these rules are just a way to keep fining players legally so the NFL can continue to get more and more money. It’s like cops giving out ridiculous tickets so the city can get more money.

    “Before his sophomore year began he ran a 4.33 40-yard dash in a race against Ray Small and many others. He was the fastest Buckeye in 2009.”

    “On September 25, 2010, Pryor had a break-out game in a 73-20 win over Eastern Michigan. He had 6 total touchdowns, including one rushing and one receiving.”

    jason campbell drove the raiders to first place and you could see the team growing under his veteran leadership.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    And in about three weeks, he’ll be out on the field trying to do the same thing for the Cleveland Browns.

    yep debo

    none of that matters

    no qb means no shot

    pryor is all that matters this year and is the center piece moving forward

    ______________
    aaron Rodgers doesn’t win the superbowl with our team this year

    having solid young players and cap space does matter if you want to be a contender

    the moves I mentioned matter
    ==================

    stop it hater

    we are not talking about arron rodgers or the current raiders that are not named pryor.

    ther is only one indispensable part in football its the qb

    you could have hall of famers top to bottom but if you dont have a good qb you will not go far

    nobody drafts a db or guard and says we will build around him to make a super bowl run

    gms head coaches are tied to the qb

    no qb means no chance

    ask the vikings, they have talent all over the field and one of the greatest runing backs in nfl history

    ponder stinks and they will go nowhere

    where would the pack be with out rodgers or the saints with out breeze/

    the cowboys are super talented but romo is trash

    bottom line only the qb matters and you go from there

    ++++++

    WTF? Those are not Raiders! Only Tim Brown, Mosebar, Wiz, and Flores are Raiders on that list!

    Gruden is off the list of being a Raider because he used inside info to beat the Raiders in a SB.

    The others just passed through here.

    because you allow your self to be entertained by non whites is not proof of anti racism

    many of hte things you have posted here are indeed proof of blatant racism

    im sure the trib staff has already made you aware of this

    I’d be very interested to see that too. The only concession I’ll give Weeden is that he was without Josh Gordon. But I watched part of that game and even when he wasn’t throwing picks, guys like Cameron were making tough catches. The leash is short for Weeden. I mean the guy is 30 years old for cryin out loud.

    sims walker roach Jenkins woodson are substantial upgrades which is also credit to reggie

    plus cap room to sign our own players and sign some of the top free agents is an unfinished story, but the flexibility is great to have

    I just saw a play on the coaches film where McF got blown up in the backfield… BOTH Mastrud and Barnes were pulling to the middle and whiffed in blocking the same guy IN THE MIDDLE.

    Our run blocking is a flipping joke.

    But its McF that is at fault. Oh and CP too…

    end of story and i dont care how many people here jump to his defense

  • RaiderRockstar

    @Mistic

    does it make you feel less racist to call others racist or something? you started the racism talk today (surprise!)

    Terrelle Pryor is a great football player. Doesn’t matter what color he is and Reggie Mack was not in his corner, Mark Davis was.

    but I know that doesn’t set well with you because it doesn’t jive with your skin color theory taught by your self proclaimed black panther trash family. slap yourself

  • RaiderRockstar

    I’m racist for being Pryor’s biggest fan in here since BEFORE we even drafted him??

    ok.. obvious agenda spewing going on here today (lol)

    Mistic wasn’t even a Pryor supporter to begin with. He just jumped on the bandwagon. It’s well documented

    ======================================
    Good question.

    I think the general consensus is that Stabler doesn’t have the raw numbers to get in.

    But not to be even CONSIDERED ?

    GTFOH.

    Sure, Snake operated behind a GREAT OL and had weapons galore – but anyone that saw Snake operate in his hey-day knows this guy was a stone cold killer with ice in his veins. Cool as a cucumber. Clutch.

    Yep, I’ll bet there are quite a few people that think Snake is in the HOF and would be very surprised to find out he isn’t.

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

    your not too bright

    the colts and dolphins never sniff the super bowl with out those qbs

    elway willed the broncos to several super bowls before he got over the hump, but they never would have been there with out him

    johnson and dilfer were not great but they had very good years in thier suprbowl seasons.

    you cant have a qb play like garbage and get to or win a superbowl. it simply doesn not happen without a good qb or a qb in a career year.

    can any one name more a team that made it to and won the superbowl with a qb playing like trash?

    pryor is all that matters and you build around him or you simply will be bottom feeders & also rans until you get a qb

    Guy and Timmy FTW!

    And how the heck is Tom Flores not already in? Or Cliff and the Snake?

    I liked Jason Campbell, but Pryor will be better and honestly, Jason reminded me of Flynn a bit with his short passes…c’mon man go for the first down yardage!

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

    two things work against stabler

    career numbers too many picks not enough yardage and tds

    if had more than 1 trophy this may have been offset

    secondly a lack of sustained success

    marino never won the trophy but he had years and years of top level play and production

    Some of us Raider fans have to realize that free agents havn’t exactly been lining -up to sign with the Raiders the last few years, especially not at discounted rates..the really good players will come once the raiders show improvement on the field and stability within the organization. the point is: be patient with Reggie as far as bringing in superior talent through free agency.

  • MikieG

    Watson is going to take over for Glass Schillens as the most injury prone Raider to have alot of potential, but barely see time during a game—Neither could stay healthy on the freakin practice field for Effs Sake…

    This ain’t soccer Watson—-

    what theory are you talking about?

    both pryor and big mack work for the same white guy so neither of them are exempt from the power structure and they will both do what they need to keep jobs

    i dont blame either one of them for trying to feed their families

    wtf are you talking about anyway

    There is a certain type of person in this world, an identity who regardless of social class or ethnicity or even historical era will remain constant and effective in their ability to ANNOY THE HEII out of everyone around them.

    Mistic & Dr. Rob are such people. If their specific circumstances were inverted, each would act exactly as the other has acted to this point. They are inherently designed to bring out the worst in those around them.

    I can only imagine that one was drawn to this blog soon after the other discovered it, like Highlanders or something.

    Whoever wins, we lose.

    Stabler didn’t have a great Arm. But he was a stone-cold killer.

    But they were winning with Lamonica before he got there.

    +++++++++

    We will have alot of cap space next year to sign some players, especially for market value–The collusion of the owners from last off season opened the eyes of alot of free agents who thought they were going to get big bucks, only to hear crickets until someone finally gave them a call and offered FAR less than what their Agents told them they were going to get (See Woodson, Eric Winston, and several others)
    We will get who we want next year, the only question is whether or not REGGIE, is going to want to get anyone any good–and whether or not he wants to keep players we have that are already good (Houston, Veldheer etc…)

    What??

    You think that the NFL fined Suh $100K, not to mention the fine he got for stomping on a players arm after the play, just because they want his money?
