Nix back at practice, Ross taking over for Branch

ALAMEDA – Left guard Lucas Nix (ankle) on Friday practiced for the first time since he suffered an ankle injury. Coach Dennis Allen said he isn’t sure yet whether Nix or Andre Gurode will start against the Broncos.

Weak side linebacker Kevin Burnett also returned to practice. He missed most of Thursday’s practice with an illness.

Strong safety Tyvon Branch (ankle), left tackle Menelik Watson (knee) and tight end David Ausberry (shoulder) didn’t practice Friday, and they aren’t likely to play against the Broncos.

– Allen said he is “leaning toward” starting Brandian Ross at strong safety Monday. Ross has worked with the first-team defense this week and declared himself “ready.”

“It’s the perfect time for me to make an impact on this team,” Ross said. He started one game for the Raiders last season.

Usama Young also is adept at playing strong safety, and he might see some time there against the Broncos, or as an extra defensive back on obvious passing downs.

– A company that owns 13 appliance stores in Colorado is offering to pick up the tab for items purchased the week before the Raiders and Broncos play if the Broncos shut out the Raiders.

The company has used this publicity stunt for at least the past decade, without having to pay up.

    This is the strongest, fastest defense we’ve possibly ever had. They’re ranked 4th in the league. It’s early, but 4th is better than 20 something.

    Remember that late game sack Pryor had to take? That is Nix

    >>>>

    Yup.

    And if he is even getting any actual consideration at starting again makes me wonder if we once again have a complete moron running things on the offensive side.

    Could we PLEASE hire a real OC sometime before this decade is over Reggie? Kind of getting sick of all the crappy teams scrap heap hires.

    Looking back at these top O-line draft picks, Joeckel and Fisher are stinking up the joint, Cooper broke his leg and gravy poured out of it, and Warmack has been by Schlereth’s account “the worst starting rookie in the draft class”.

    Makes me feel pretty good about Hayden, even if he really isn’t doing anything.

    ______________________________________________

    Also, as I have said before, the trade down also freed up enough cap room to sign Woodson. The difference between the salaries between the #3 overall pick and #12 pick is more than Woodson’s salary.

    Brien, all the more reason to be prepared for the refs screwing us, too. That’s what it’s all about. Marketing. They want the games to fit their marketing angle. That’s why they let Luck score that running TD despite the obvious hold. They could not let Luck lose his season opener to the Raiders of all teams. It’s going to be ugly officiating, but I still think we win if our defense continues to play the way it has been.

    the defense has played well, but they stared and finished poorly in indy, and then faced the Jags, which will help any team.

    we have ZERO turnovers.

    we are going against maybe the best qb of all time, currently operating at a genius level.

    very difficult to stop.

    and we can’t “trade punches” with them cuz our offense is inept.

    and we can’t generate turnovers, so we can’t get easy scores or tke away possessions from manning.
