Bo knows fire, too, it appears

Share

Former Raiders running back Bo Jackson is going to light the Al Davis ceremonial torch before Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans at the Coliseum.
Jackson hasn’t spent much time around the Raiders since he retired after the 1990 season. He is the latest in a long line of big-name Raiders players and coaches from the past invited back by owner Mark Davis.
He played for the Raiders from 1987-90 and averaged 5.4 yards rushing before a hip injury ended his career. Jackson also played baseball for the Kansas City Royals before he moved on from the public eye.

    Sure of that, are you? I’m not. Not even sure that I think starting McGloin is a bad idea. I’m just not riding the “Pryor’s never done anything good ever” train.

  • alex7

    wait, Jennings has earned it…

    but you’re not sure about the QB spot?

    lol.

  • alex7

    all he did was tie a Raiders all-time record. No biggie. Meanwhile the other guy has 1 TD pass in the last FIVE weeks.

  • rifflicks

    well the train is pulling out of the station without him real quick

  • alex7

    this will be the THIRD coaching staff that isn’t impressed with him…

    yet numerous other raw real 1st year QBs are starting games left and right and producing.

  • RelentlessIV

    Actually I like both QB’s. I was in support of Mclovin starting too. I just hated Flynn and knew he wouldn’t pan out. I’m in support of either QB starting though.

  • alex7

    then let him rush.

    It’s what he does well. He can go in for a few wildcat plays a game. Maybe a bootleg.

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    No need of ‘vast analytical skills’. I don’t have it, neither do you. But I am in management so I know a lot about organization, and their strategy. Managing human is much different than looking at ‘numbers’….and with the type of money involve, NFL team is very hard to manage. This is not high school, where you can change QB without worrying how that change chemistry. Players have loyalty to certain players, and these players are grownup with alot of money at stake. Like I said, video game stat geeks will never understand since they never take into account the ‘human factor’.

  • alex7

    does it matter that Flynn’s game was the 4th-best QB’d game this season?

    Sad but true.

  • Davy Jones

    No patience for a prospect? 8 games and the hook in a rebuild year. After he posts the highest single game passer rating in over a decade and erases Bo Jackson’s single rush for the record books.

  • alex7

    lol prospect.

    3rd year pro.

    It’s his fault he couldn’t start earlier than this year. If he was better, he would have.

  • RelentlessIV

    It doesn’t matter because he isn’t the starting QB for any team. And all NFL GM’s must be dumb for not having Matt be their franchise QB.

  • rifflicks

    Management?
    Jack in the box or McDonalds?
    Find ONE post where I base an opinion on statictical data

  • R8derdiehard

    Flynn had all the chances in the world to be the starter here and lost it to the worlds worst qb(in your opinion,which may prove to be true) and you were all on his nutz, a guy that got cut in buffalo. All I’m saying is quit with the act like you are so much smarter than everyone here who was ROOTING for a guy who could potentially be great.

  • “He does not appear to be seriously injured”
    Great job Enberg!!!!

  • RelentlessIV

    In the post game conference all of the players interviewed had nothing but great things to say about Mclovin.

  • rifflicks

    Really???

  • RelentlessIV

    Yes really.

  • waxxo

    It’s pretty annoying hearing you fvcking idiots bich back and forth about what QB is better…you sound like a bunch of fans from across the bay.

  • RelentlessIV

    Both are good. Just have different skill sets.

  • rifflicks

    and you sound like someone with nothing to ad to the discussion

  • Davy Jones

    *cough* Pryor has several all time Raider records *cough* And don’t make too much out of McGloin’s tie, he shares it with Marinovich.

  • alex7

    ranked anywhere 30th or lower out of 32 doesn’t make anyone “good.”

    Just stop.

  • BOKNOWS

    He’d be a dominant WR!

  • R8derdiehard

    Yeah DA has a tough decision on his hands mcgloin looked pretty good , but most coaches find it hard to bench a guy off an injury. Either way I’m excited to see 1. If Pryor can respond, which I’m not sure of anymore or 2. What mcgloin does in his second week

  • rifflicks

    How Many WINS / LOSSES

  • alex7

    they were excited to get balls thrown their way, in rhythm? Weird.

    O-line was excited not to be blamed for 10 “sacks”?
    Weird.

    RBs were excited not to have 9 guys at the line of scrimmage disrespecting the pass? Weird.

  • Davy Jones

    Until last week, he was ahead of Eli. Is he “good”?

  • alex7

    sorry, what?

    Was staring at Eli’s Super Bowl ring.

  • RelentlessIV

    When I want your opinion I’ll personally ask you for it.

  • alex7

    when 30th is the ONLY place you’ve ever arrived at…

    yuck

  • alex7

    since it’s a current topic, and kinda funny – from Wikipedia:

    “Pryor held his Pro Day on August 20, 2011, where representatives from 17 NFL teams were present…”

    Barely over half the NFL’s teams showed up. Uh-oh.

    “His throwing wasn’t as impressive, as he completed 27 of 39 passes for just under a 70% completion rate. Quarterbacks are usually expected to complete around 90% of their passes on their Pro Days,[41] as there are no defenders to prevent the passes from being completed to their receivers.”

    doh!

  • alex7

    don’t forget, as a Supplemental Draft guy, there were ZERO other players to go watch…anywhere…at any time.

    “NO thanks,” said 15 NFL teams.

    Ouch.

  • rifflicks

    H O F WR

  • Davy Jones

    But it was higher than thirty after week five. He arrived somewhere better . . .and then left. Might return . . .

  • alex7

    when you say something asinine, I’ll personally slap it around.

  • Davy Jones

    I love how the only extenuating circumstances you accept are the ones that favor your position- it’s the most convincing part of your argument.

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    LOL, guess I’m talking to a boy. I’ll be thrill to be in upper-middle management for Jack-in-the-Box or McDonald. You do know these two are very large company, right? But their HQ is too far away and I don’t want to move, so no, I never applied for jobs in these two companies.

    I don’t care about you and certainly not your opinion. You ask me a question, I gave you an answer.

  • Every other QB EVER taken in the sup draft was done so with a 1st round pick.
    Every one. Walsh, Rosenbaugh,Dave Brown, etc.
    TP was the 1st QB taken in the sup draft without a 1st round pick.

  • alex7

    yes, go buy stock that’s free falling after not being very high in the first place, and was questioned as having little value from the get-go.

    Solid advice.

  • Davy Jones

    You’re right, Pryor HAS had three times as many wins as McGloin. Glad you brought that up.

  • rifflicks

    32 NFL teams Passed on drafting him Twice until Al took him in the 3rd round

  • alex7

    were those other guys asked to run routes at their pro days? =)

  • RelentlessIV

    Just like a woman. Won’t stop until acknowledged right. You keep telling yourself your right with your stats. Matt is gone and Pryor started. Your facts did you well buddy.

  • alex7

    I hope you understand the incredible talent that Marinovich was.

    Drugs are a legit excuse to falter.

    Pryor has no such excuse.

  • alex7

    hmm, kinda the reason we’re in last place, no?

  • rifflicks

    1/0 vs. 3/5
    you must be proud

  • Davy Jones

    https://soundcloud.com/siriusxmsports/oakland-raiders-qb-terrelle Bill Polian addresses that in this sound byte.

  • Davy Jones

    I would like to state for the record that I’m in favor of the McLovin’ nickname.

  • alex7

    so make fun of Flynn because he was let go by Oakland…

    but support Polian, who was also let go by an NFL franchise.

    Makes sense.
