Raiders live chat on Thursday this week

Hey everyone,

Just a head’s up that we had to switch this week’s Raiders live chat to Thursday at noon because of scheduling issues with the bye week. Sorry for any inconvenience!

    Does anyone wish Flynn was still with us?

  • Papertiger

    Hey guys! Have the trolls put up the photo where Flynn is pointing off camera yet? It’s going to come up sooner or later. Looks like we’re stuck with QB talk for the time being.

    I wonder how the situation would be different if Reggie had been able to draft Matt Barkley? I mean, they wouldn’t want to put the kid out there with this line play, but would Pryor be feeling more pressure than he is already?

    hey Becker! thanks for the heads up

  • Papertiger

    Also, not getting Reece involved on offense, especially after giving him the captaincy and a contract extension, is inexcusable on Olson’s part!

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    It is odd to say the least.

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    Quit knocking on Flynn. The man has balls of mustard. How many of you can say your balls are made out of mustard? Didn’t think so.

  • Theghostronin79

    Not me

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    The Bills are now relevant with Flynn as their #3.

  • Zymurge

    Reece had like 100 touches last week, clearly he was game planned in. It’s possible that the Chiefs saw that and schemed to limit him and Olson adjusted accordingly. It’s not like Olson doesn’t know he’s on the team.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that you don’t get many plays called where the FB is the primary target. He’s usually a second or third look when the defense over commits to other areas of coverage. It’s on the QB to find him when he’s open, so TP is likely more responsible than Olson for not finding the best option.

    Jhill’s favorite TE Richard Gordon just signed with the Steelers. hope he doesn’t give away all of our secrets on offense. we play them after the bye week!

  • Raidersfan727

    If flynn starts in a few weeks, we will get to see him up against KC.

    Can someone bring up those crazy racial posts during the live chat this week?

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    Flynn will be flying high and flinging it in Buffalo as their projected #3. No bar is to low.

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    Buffalo Bills should change their name to the Buffalo Wings now that Flynn is the projected #3.

  • Zymurge

    Pryor supporters like to claim that “football people” all over the NFL are saying he’s a legit QB. Well, now “football people” are wondering if he’s even going to keep the job after seeing him meltdown against defensive pressure:

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/oakland-raiders-stick-with-quarterback-terrelle-pryor-101413

    DA came out with strong support for Pryor remaining the starter, as I’d expect a good HC to do. The underlying fact is that the rest of the league saw his limitations and have enough questions as to his starting abilities that they felt the need for this article.

    One telling thing in there is that DA calls out Pryor’s mental issues with playcalling. Not just the delay of games, but they he actually called the wrong play (how hard is it to relay what just got spoken into your ear two seconds ago?) as well as calling the wrong protection on another play.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire. If DA is calling out some of these things that would otherwise be unknown, then there are likely more than just one or two instances of it.

  • Theghostronin79

    I agree there.

  • Theghostronin79

    Most of the Nation is just desperate for a QB to TAKE the job and cement himself as the guy for years to come. Pryor shows flashes of brilliance, and plenty of face-palm moments…….The TP guys are clinging to the “Brilliance” part, and putting all eggs there.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Thursday!? Inconvenience!?
    Screws up my whole week! Got to reschedule the Vet, which screws up the training hike, so I can’t take the llama van to the mechanic. The work crew to move the hay and do the firewood get put off-hope it doesn’t rain.
    Thursday live chat? The Horror! The Horror!

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    what does winter time do to the llama industry? better? worse? same?

  • DKnight007

    Making excuses for Olsens spotty play calling vs Chiefs and not using Reece the correct way? Nice!

    Um, the article you linked to actually says that he’ll remain the starter and won’t lose the job any time soon. Those “only see negatives when it comes to Pryor” glasses you have work like a $50 prosty.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    For what?

  • DKnight007

    Olsen did alot of weird things, expecially in the 2nd half of that ball game. Should have called more QB rollout plays to move pocket and buy TP some more time after it was obvious he was going to get rushed quickly every time with the 3rd string patchwork OLine in there. He should have used Reece more on screens, running plays flat passes. More reverses, fake reverses, use Ford more. Olsen put his QB in a position to struggle with crappy play calling with a bad pass pro crappy OLine.

  • Zymurge

    Try reading in context next time. Or actually, all the time.

    What part of:

    “The underlying fact is that the rest of the league saw his limitations and have enough questions as to his starting abilities that they felt the need for this article.”

    is too hard for you to understand?

    Nice post and a lot of truth there that some wont want to hear

    wow this blog died

    WN, ITNN (10/15/13) – Matt Flynn joins Buffalo Bills. A banged up quarterback squad breathed a collective sigh of relief, as well as the Bill organization and their faithful fan base when bounced around NFL QB Matt Flynn was signed to a undisclosed contract. Flynn, who was released by Green Bay, traded by Seattle (after it was evident he would never play in Seattle) and cut by the Oakland Raiders, now joins his fourth team as their #3 QB. Flynn has had less starts than team he’s been with, though he expects that to change. “I am excited to be a part of the Buffalo Bills franchise, and look forward to the opportunity to get this team to the Super Bowl”. While it is not known if Flynn will start or have any immediate impact, he will bring leadership to a team that could use the vets skills. “I really never had a chance to play in Green Bay behind Aaron [Rogers], and what can I say about Wilson [Russell]. Pryor out played me, but here in Buffalo, I am getting a new lease on my career. I am very grateful to the Bills organization”. The Bills, at 2-4, may improve if Flynn is given the starting role. “We’ll see” Flynn said when asked if he can improve on the teams record. Dr. Rob and the cast of Flynnatonians in Oakland have been unavailable for comment.

    ‏@CorkOnTheNFL 34m

    At noon, we’re doing a Raiders live chat. Bring your A-game questions, comments and feedback.

    Hmmm.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    maybe Becker is doing one of his own on Thursday? (lol) heck – i’ll attend both

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    And went to…?

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    Raiders traditionally throw money away. Not using Reece is a waste and it is stupid. But it is par for the course.

  • Theghostronin79

    It’s hard to be objective some times. At least for me. I go back and forth between objective, and “Homer” all the time. It’s easier to stay balanced, rather than PRAISE everything, or BASH everything. Lot’s of people are on one side or the other.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    He told us 20 minutes before that Cork tweet. He knows which side his bread is buttered on.

  • Davy Jones

    The part where you inflate a single AP article that mildly suggests that Pryor is to blame for his own second half collapse (and he is), into “the rest of the league saw his limitations and have questions about his starting abilities.” How, when, and in what universe does a FOX sports article represent the opinions of the entire league except through those glasses of yours?

  • Sad Hat In Tulsa

    I’m so happy for Flynn to join a great 0-4 in the Super Bowl organization. He’ll be competing against 2 rookies and a second year guy. He’ll be fine.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    Santa Hat, why are you so obsessed with Flynn? he’s gone – let him go!

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    He’s the Patron Saint of Lost Causes. See also Debo…

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    The article I read said it was Pryor who revealed in disgust at himself that he called the wrong play.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Other than the uniform and playing in one Coliseum or another, there is no more ‘traditionally’ left.

  • Zymurge

    LOL. I’d upvote twice if I could.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    Debo is consistent. i’ll give him that. he hasn’t changed his tune regarding Russell and he’s been out of the league since May of 2010. no idea who this “Tulsa” guy is – some troll ??

  • The_Judge37

    They need to really get this offense sorted out this by week. Get the damn Oline prepared, can’t keep having starters backing up other spots on the line. Work on hot routes and put the damn play clock on TP2 in practice. Every time he gets a Delay of Game, have Seabass kick him in the groin, with King holding so we get the FG unit some practice too.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    what if Seabass misses again?

  • The_Judge37

    Then King kicks him in the Groin. #accountability

  • RaiderGuy50

    Great for him if he can provide vet leadership- I have not seen any examples of it- Did not sound or look like he was interested in much vet leadership in Oakland.
    No ill will towards him- just not a right fit for us, or Seattle or ?????

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    King gives Seabass a bouqet of balloons when he makes a 50 yard FG. What should he give him for every missed FG ??

  • The_Judge37

    Balloons filled with Helium instead of NOS like the last bouqet

    Matt Flynn’s 1-yr deal with the Bills is for the league min ($715k). Raiders will save $42,059 for each week Flynn is on Bills’ roster

  • RaiderGuy50

    Agree and just like some people who believe that fox news in general represents both sides of ANY story- LOL
