Raiders spent players day off looking at other players

Tuesday typically is a busy time for NFL teams in terms of bringing in players that they’re interested in adding to their roster. The Raiders did more than their share Tuesday by working out 13 players.
In addition to quarterbacks David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White, the Raiders on Tuesday worked out running backs Montario Hardesty, Keiland Williams and Jonathan Grimes, wide receivers Ramses Barden and LaQuan Williams, tight end Evan Moore defensive backs Marcus Burley, Myron Lewis, Curtis Marsh and Markelle Martin.
The Raiders didn’t sign any of the players they worked out, though that doesn’t mean that they won’t do so at some point this season.

    Kamakazi is a windbag. I stopped paying attention to his crap 2 years ago. He is irrelevent.

  • JLofty

    Easy there tiger. One game at a time.
    We are currently tied for 3rd to last place in the conference….

  • DKnight007

    If Ramses can block that would be nice and provide a big red zone target. Maybe a possesion type?

  • JLofty

    That was bad….

  • Raider O

    Our defense still needs work.
    Pass defense needs improving, pass rush, secondary, and coaching.
    Rush defense is good.

    We also need playmakers on offense: better RB, WR, and TE.

  • Goldie7

    One thing that I strongly dislike is when we start playing that stupid prevent D. Please give me a break, our D should not be playing prevent D, but they did Monday morning against the Chargers.

    When we beat KC, we’ve established our footing. Better than this banana peel we’ve been on for ten years, huh.

  • JLofty

    Sorta like Juron Criner was supposed to be? No doubt we need that.
    I’m thinkin Rivera is going to be that guy….

    Good read. This guy might as well be a Raider beat writer.

  • 10centsworth

    In China, they are laughing.

  • DKnight007

    Melvin better start bunting and hit and running and start playing percentages to manufacture runs when the situations come up tomorrow. If I see another runner on 2nd with no outs and nobody laying down the bunt to get that runner to 3rd….I’m going to go nuts!

  • Raider O

    Playoffs?
    Playoffs?!?!
    I’m just happy we can win a game.

  • The_Judge37

    Does the American League even know how to bunt?

  • JLofty

    A big time pass rush dude like Osi would have gone a LONG way in making us legit this year….

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Poorman’s Speedball?

  • Tony Rasmussen

    Done, and done (and I mean done)

  • Tony Rasmussen

    Nah, the pun wouldn’t translate, but that’s OK, I’m a translator …

  • JLofty

    Saw Tiggers do it yesterday or at least more than once in the series. Can’t stand that many runners and no outs and NO runs come in….

  • 10centsworth

    You go with what got you there, altho we do bunt. I’ll take a fly ball to the outfield with the bases loaded and no outs. Two would have radically affected the game.

  • Raider O

    I know we had 3 INTs against Rivers, but he was 36/49 411 yards.
    Can’t continue to allow QBs to complete 70% of their passes.
    Luck
    Manning
    Rivers

  • Raider O

    And probably wouldn’t have cost us $6.5 million.

  • JLofty

    My wife thinks Val Kilmer was the best looking Dark Knight. And she’s a HUGE Clooney fan…

  • Raider O

    Why not give Criner a chance?

  • 10centsworth

    I speak for the Hakka. Go Waders!!

  • Raider O

    New post!

  • 10centsworth

    Tell her to watch Kilmer in the ok corral movie as Doc Holliday. best part I’ve seen him in, even if he kept hacking in a hankie. “I’ll be your huckleberry.”

  • Tony Rasmussen

    Do tell … my wife is Hakka and it’s spoken in all my in-law’s homes, even after many years I can only decipher a little

  • JLofty

    So yesterday in the chat I was peppering Cork about the bu QB.
    Thinking Carr would be crunchy toast with our Oline. But he was adament.
    Pat White seems like a solid scheme fit but he’s never started a NFL game in his life and barely ever played in one.
    Trent Edwards, been there, done that, see David Carr…
    I’m still thinking Young or even Teblow are better options. VYoung must have some kind of social disease….

    Makes you a typical American husband.

  • Tony Rasmussen

    I like that UWash RB Bishop Sankey — the name, and the running, he’s tough

  • 2romes

    The Raiders don’t need to play a better game than they did last week they just need to play a overall good game to win this one. I understand the Raiders need to improve in all three phases of the game but the Chiefs are a blue collar hard working type team in which the Raiders are also. It should be a good one to watch. I’ll take the Raiders by seven.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I see my services won’t be required today.

  • Tony Rasmussen

    Wasn’t it you who recently asked how people know there’s a new post? Seems it’s the same way buzzards know there’s a new carcass around… Word o’mouth, you look up and you’re the only one chewin on some old backbone, etc…

  • DKnight007

    It drives me nuts and it happens more often that not with the A’s! The situational hitting and bunt sacrificing when necessary is mind boggling. This is the playoffs…..not the regular season!

  • Raider Rocker

    I hate it too but DA’s point is “situational football” i.e. give up yards and not points by not letting guys behind the defense. This is what the Raiders did. As a fan it made me sick thinking we were about to lose a game, but in the end the strategy worked. What we needed was better offensive play in Q3 and Q3 points.

  • Raider Rocker

    Don’t give the other guys bulletin board material.

  • Raider Rocker

    And the punt block that went right back into their hands for a first down. And turnovers don’t always “just happen”. They can be forced through strips, aggressive defense and good ST play.

  • rioderek

    I was thinking the same thing. It would also be nice to see Coco stealing some bases and/or getting into the pitchers head Ricky Henderson style. Disrupting the pitchers rhythm can’t do anything but help. Please no more Vogt or Sogart in the clutch. Vogt got the one lucky hit in game 2, but he’s stranded a boat load of runners even when he simply needed to fly out/sacrifice.

  • rioderek

    Criner may be the Pryor version of WR’s. DA failing to give him the opportunity. Unlike Pryor, Criner has not been able to force DA’s hand.

  • rioderek

    I just returned from Thailand I was up the past 4 Monday mornings at 1am-6am watching football depending on the Raider start times. Had to set my schedule and sleep to accommodate game day. I can be rough but necessary. Being up and disrupting my schedule to watch that Flynn snoozer did piss me off.

  • rioderek

    Yeah the 3 QB’s he looked at are all completely worthless. They’re all worse than Flynn or Jamarcus Russell

  • dB

    How about looking at OFFENSIVE LINEMEN?????

  • Alvin Mitchell

    Raider look at Vince Young FOR BACK UP HE IS A MOBLE QB.AND A WINNER AND ALSO NEED A CHANCE.
