K24: Mora is going no where, UCLA just extended his contract. Hundley isn’t even close to being ready for the NFL. He needs the maturity of at least one more year.
Charlie, saw that too. Attended many of those big games with the Chiefs and Bradshaw.
We never really had the dominating D-line with those great early Raider teams. We could compete during the season, make people look silly with our ability to score pts.,then be stymied by the Chief’s defense or later, the Steelers. We finally beat the Steelers when we had a dominating D-line. Lasted only for a short time, though. (Tony Cline went down).
Our O over the years still was the part of the team that allowed the D to do its thing, allowed them to stay on the sidelines to conserve energy in the second half when our O usually had to come back from being pts. down at the half.
Maybe Johnny is having too much fun in college to leave. Who knows if he really wants to play pro ball?
0hmmm, I guess all the guys at work blogging on company time are at lunch. this may be one of the things wrong with the good ol’ USofA.0
We beat the Steelers in the AFC championship when Franco and Rocky Bleier where both out. Best Raider team ever though !
I could blog during work woot woot
I doubt anyone here has a job
Many fans do not seem to realize that you must be balanced in the run and pass to win a championship.
Defenes and special teams must be solid as well.
Further, the run is essential as the season moves into December and January. Last I checked NINE of the AFC cities have a high likelihood of bad weather as the season progresses.
Have to be balanced to win a championship in the NFL.
I’m pretty sure Tom Cable accomplished that right before AD fired him (stupidly).
YEAH..MAKES U WONDER WHERE GUY’S THAT HAVE THOUSANDS OF POST FIND THE TIME..
Taiwan jones taking reps at running back
It aint easy being a GM. Look at the Houston boots. They have been drafting defense for years trying to beat PM and the colts. They finally arrive last year with a team that seemingly does right in all phases of the game.
BAM, what the hell happened?
All because Schaub stinks all of a sudden?
I have a good excuse, no job and the life of a recluse.
McFadden aggravated injury surprise surprise. Stewart out as well apparently
Ummm, no. Once Hue came to town, Cable was reduced to being a fat cheerleader. The firing that baffles me is that of our DC at the time, John Marshall.
It wont be easy to crawl out of the hole we are in.. Gotta build the team and hope we catch fire with a top ten (or better) QB.
Build the team and plug in QB’s
You’re kidding ???? McFadden is worthless
DMac is turning into a cult figure of wretchedness along the lines of JaWalrus
Also, what happened to the defense? D Coordinator Wade Phillips was considered a genius, now he is being called out by HOF Ed Reed as a moron?
It’s night where I am
Someone will be interested in McFadden, but I can’t see their paying him much.
Yeah… Somebody will take a flyer for sure…. But we gave up the overall 4th pick
seems like they are keeping him out so he won’t get a high offer . then low ball him. only the coaches know
What’s the weather report for MetLife Stadium Sunday?
Hope Matty can throw in the wind and that Jano doesn’t freak in it.
Yeah. And nix working at rg. Guess briesel is a no go for now.
I don’t want him. So long, fella.
Could be he’s just a practice sub.
I hear you, just hope he don’t stay in the afc west.
What? You don’t think he is worth the $10M we are paying this year? Because it is 1/6 of our total salary of all the players?
pat haden usc athletic director says he spoke to gruden snd gruden said he wants to coach pros. The stars are aligned for a raider return….fvck DA!
Cork says McFadden and Stewart aren’t at practice so who knows
Old news. Saw it way downstream this morning. Gruden likes to keep his name out there and for all you know, it’s a joke between Haden and Gruden to throw that out there and then laugh.
you are even dumber than you look
Looks like the QB draft pool is getting smaller. Hope we get a chance to get one. Manziel, or grab Barr or Clowney.
Scary, Jennings is recovering from ANOTHER concussion? How many concussions until you are shut down for the year?
It’s all a matter of passing the concussion protocol. Either you do or you don’t.
don’t want Clowney. Slacker. That would be an elderly Al move.
Or grab Cutler trade back and grab the OG from Baylor, Also draft Carlos Hyde.
#Raiders fans will like this RT @InsideUSC Pat Haden admitted on DanPatrickShow he contacted Gruden on #USC job “He wants to coach in pros”
Taiwan’s taking reps at RB?
Dutch: Kelly Skipper wants no part of those benched RB’s on the Lions & Patriots. Skip is the man to go to though if you suffer from fumblitis !!
Like i said it wont happen till it happens.. Jason LaConfora already said Gruden is coming back and it would be between the Raiders or Falcons.
Cmon mark Davis get on the phone.. Get the contracts out.. GRUDEN/ MANZIEL 2014. .. McGLoin backup
Neither, Wooah. it’s Jets/Texans/Cowboys/Vikings – my bet is Dallas
why not? anything to keep the ball out of Reece’s hands – right Olson ??
Gruden likes to keep his name in the news?? how did he do that?? he just said know.. and if u know Hub Arkush he already stated that Mark Davis wants Gruden back..
Plus most if u missed it but Gruden had a sit down interview with Greg Papa before the Broncos MNF game.. Gruden said himself he is coming back to coaching just waiting for the right time to come back.
Said leaving Raiders was a bittersweet taste ..and he would love to finish what he starts.
Like I said it wont happen till it happens. PERIOD.
new post, turd nuggets
