Raiders-Eagles game sells out, will be televised locally

The Raiders game against the Philadelphia Eagles sold out, and it will be televised locally, a team spokesman said Thursday.
The game begins at 1:05 p.m. Sunday at the Coliseum, as the Raiders aim for their second straight victory and fourth overall. They won only four games all last season.
The Raiders now have sold out all five of their regular-season home games this season and 20 of their past 21 dating to the start of the 2011 season.
The Raiders can gain a sweep of the Pennsylvania teams with a win over the Eagles. Last Sunday, the Raiders beat the Steelers 21-18 as they improved to 3-4.

    Foles has a good arm but I think we will confuse him into making some mistakes if we take away his run game.
    He does not have the ability to carry a team singlehandedly.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Wrong? I can talk circles around you when it comes to sports. If Hayden was so good he’d be a starter. Jenkins and Porter are playing much better and Hayden wont surpass them all season.

    he’s not Pryor, is what you’re saying… I think TP2 will remain undefeated at home and sweep his familiar PA teams

    East Oak: quit making such a big deal about Hayden. He’s basically a starter, as teams use more than 2 CB’s quite often these days. He’s been tested and so far so good. Like Reggie said “expect him to be much improved the last 4 weeks of the season versus the first 4 weeks of the season” he’s still a rookie, afterall, with darn good coaches in Allen/Tarver/Lynn

    -_-

  • rifflicks

    just like Pryor

  • rifflicks

    BWAHAHAHAHA

  • R8erEduc8er

    How can you call RM a meathead when he got rid of the overpaid dead weight, have us sitting pretty cap-wise next year, rebuilt the defense with 10 new starters that’s ranked top 5, and has the team competing with so much dead money. RM AND the coaching staff deserves credit. We’re in the middle of a full rebuild….that takes a group effort.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Miss me with that basically starter schit Dee Millner starts Hayden doesn’t and won’t unless injury occurs. So what I’m saying is we could have made a better pick.

  • Charlie

    Riff
    Foles has no where near Pryor’s athleticism.
    I said he has a good arm.

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

    Educ – I do give Reggie credit for getting rid of all the “out of whack” contracts, but truth is he’s just adding more of them and his eye for talent on the offensive side of the ball is apparently blind. I give him credit for hiring Dennis Allen and allowing him to do his thang, as well. i’m pretty confident DA hand picked stud DC Jason Tarver as well as had a major voice in the players that were signed to fit his defense

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

    dj is WAY better than dee. it’s not even close.

  • J Hill

    Damn shame your still holding a grudge that we didn’t just draft Cooper or Warmack at 3.

  • J Hill

    And what happened to your dubs last night?

  • Charlie

    RR

    Reggie has had one draft and $50 million in dead money to deal with. I have been saying we will most likely take 3 years to be a plyoff contender. Three years is 2014.

    I know you do not like it but he is building an old school style team. It will have a focus on winning on the line of scrimmage.

    Just because you do not like that style of team building does not mean he is a “meathead”.

    Reggie upon taking the GM job:

    “Two things _ I want to win up front, and that’s on both sides of the ball, with the big boys.”

  • eastoaklandraider

    Millner starts for a pretty good d Hayden doesn’t and rex said he will be the top rookie by seasons end.

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

    HAHA! good one. both of those guys are doing about as much as Lane Johnson & Menelik Watson (nada) of course Coop and british sissy have been injured

  • RaiderDebo

    Is that right?? Believe me pal, Foles doesn’t do one thing better than Vick. You must have missed the Dallas game. Guys were getting wide open behind the D and he couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn. Man-to-man makes life real tough on the Eagles when Foles plays because he can’t make the D pay by hitting it deep or by running it. Tampa played zone all day and he killed them with screens. Cooper and McCoy put up tons of YAC. We take that away on Sunday and we’re golden. Jason Hatcher said before the Dallas game he wanted to face Foles over Vick all day long. He wasn’t joking. We’re very lucky it’s Foles.

  • Chino

    Rex also guaranteed the Super Bowl..

  • eastoaklandraider

    We could have taken star at least he’d be a starter

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

    Really? Pretty sure Andy Dalton just shredded that secondary for 5 TD passes last week

  • eastoaklandraider

    Don’t even speak on hoop after that azzwhupin we put on u

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

    Charlie: just because Reggie is an old school meathead (like you) doesn’t mean he has the slightest clue about building a football team.

  • Jon Train

    No sir. Milliner has been benched several times already. Huge disappointment for them so far. Better example for u would have been Trufant in ATL. He’s been solid without any wtf moments.

  • J Hill

    But YOU wanted a GUARD.

    Bottom line is Hayden is still catching up after a year off. And he is already ballin according to 99.9% of the folks that watch him.

    1 bad game against the Donkeys.

  • eastoaklandraider

    And we don’t need a guard more than we need a db right now? Smh.

  • 10centsworth

    You have to explain the obvious to some, huh. Right in front of their eyes and they want to doom and gloom?

  • bcz24

    Check again… Millner was benched.

    I think he should get a bus ticket out of town. Period. Screw him and the lakers.

  • bcz24

    A nickel CB is basically considered a starter in the NFL. Also our defense ranks as good as Rex’s… why they hate for your boys?

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

    East Oak: you could have predicted injuries to Veldheer, Bergstrom, Watson, Gurode, etc ??

  • J Hill

    Right now, or on draft night????

    Monday morning QB’ing????

    Weak!

  • Charlie

    RR
    I would argue that your assessment of Reggie and I is about as accurate as your assessment of Andy Reid being a “terrible” HC (your words not mine).
    I have offered on several occasions for you to learn at the knee of the master (me) regarding Raider football but you continue to confirm your ignorance to all on the blog.
    Here is hoping that one day you will realize that I as well as many others on the blog such as East Oak, SnB, Autumn Wind etc. have forgotten more about the Raiders that you will ever know.
    Until that time-please continue to embarrass your self.

    Lakers 1-1

    Charlie is the man!!!!!

  • bcz24

    Wait, because Rock isn’t the same age as you he can’t be as much a fan as you? That’s weak.

  • J Hill

    DJ Hayden played 49 snaps last week.

    Tracy Porter played 59 snaps.

  • Charlie

    I thought you would get a kick out of that.
    Just tired of haters like RR talking smack about a team he started paying attention to in 2009.
    He actually dleudes himself into thinking he knows the Raiders.

  • 0ak R8rs

    He’s barely touched the offense. Can’t do it all at once. And at least 3 guys that I can think of that were drafted for offense, bergstrom, Watson and Murray r out for the year. No GM has a crystal ball. Things haven’t worked out as planned on offense. It will improve dramatically from this year to next.

  • 0ak R8rs

    I didn’t hear a word about Hayden last game. Exactly how a quality starting CB in the NFL should be. Unless he makes a pick or recovers a fumble, you hear nothing. Tumbleweeds. Perfect. 2 months into his career w no OTAs and no TC and I couldn’t be happier w him at this point.

    2009? more like 1989 you old goat!

    You two need a virtual hug

  • Charlie

    Bcz
    No RR makes ignorant comments.
    His knowledge of the Raiders and is superficial at best.
    Constantly trashing Reggie etc. because he can not have his pacifier now. He has to wait for a real rebuild.
    Too effing bad.
    Saying things like Andy Ried is a “terrible” HC confirms his ignorance on a wider scale.

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

    silver: there are only 2 males that I hug. my dad and my brother. and that’s because they both live in California and I see them almost never. i’m not passing out virtual hugs like candy, sorry to disappoint

  • bcz24

    He’s a fan of Johnnie Lee Higgins… not everyone is perfect. He lives in Chiefs country and still bleeds silver and black like you or I. We all have a different philosophy on how the Raiders need to return to greatness, but at the end of the day we all went the same end.

  • http://www.cosmicdanceband.com/ SilverandBlack666

    Would you hug jesus if he was here?

  • bcz24

    I would run away screaming… I have no affinity for zombies.

  • J Hill

    What happened to talking circles around me East?

    Where’d you go????

  • Charlie

    Bcz
    I do not think he does.
    And please. I have lived in the Burgh and attended Raider games in Pittsburgh. I have been through a lot more abuse than most of you for being a Raider fan in enemy territory.
    I enjoy discussing matters with you and several others because you are knowledgable.
    When RR says Reggie is a meathead and Andy Reid is a terrible HC you have to question credibilty.
