    I think you exaggerate CWood’s demise. No doubt we could use an upgrade at FS. Probably will have to wait till next year’s draft. In any case, I’m not down for wasting a roster spot for six games. Not in a no-excuses allowed year.

    David Ausberry is running as the first-team tight end at OTAs.
    Ausberry missed all of last year due to a shoulder injury. He enters this year with the edge on pass-catching specialist Mychal Rivera due to superior blocking ability, and also has the advantage in raw speed. Still, we don’t expect Ausberry to be an every-down player after Dennis Allen called Rivera a “foundation piece” last month. There’s low-end TE2 upside at best here.

    Guys like Reece and Ausberry have so much untapped potential imo

    I like the sentiment but will take it with a grain of salt. An upper echelon pro bowl NFL QB should impress the heII out of any rookie.

    I prefer my KoolAde with facts and figures like these two for anybody that missed them earlier.

    Because if anyone knows what a real deal, NFL Quarterback looks like, it’s First year Rookie Linebacker, Khalil Mack!

    Lol it’s kool-aid season. Any Raider news is worth posting here.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    ’tis true.

  • Just Win Baby

    …….Meanwhile, back at main headquarters, Derek Carr and Reggie McKenzie are sharing a nice mojito.

  • Just Win Baby

    They should crucify him and disembowel all his family members on pay per view for smoking all that mary jane.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    You forgot about pizzing on the entrails and then burning them.

  • SaintKaufman

    Feelings trump stats and facts. Get wit da program!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I Feel Good!

  • Just Win Baby

    We could really use a guy like Matt Schaub to hand the ball off to McFadden for a loss of two on first down all freakin season. We should have kept Jeff Hostetler and Vince Evans.

  • Ted Stosterone

    Latavius “Baby Dickerson” Murray will handle it.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Had to change my avatar after seeing the pic on CSNBayArea.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Were the mid ’90′s the last time you had hope?

    he doesn’t count towards the 53 while suspended…

    Pic won’t fit in the box…oh well.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    no, 4 games last year was plenty

  • Guest123

    I hadn’t clicked on CSNBayArea all day, but what stands out is Matt Schaub’s blank stare and hobo beard. I think I’ll pass on that invitation.

  • Guest123

    I thought he did. So Andre Holmes didn’t cost a roster spot for the first few games last year?

  • Just Win Baby

    no, I just really miss the fashions from those times.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    nope!
    10/07/2013 Activated WR Andre Holmes; released QB Matt Flynn

  • Guest123

    just edit it and re-upload it.

  • Just Win Baby

    That makes me feel very sad. Like I just watched Kramer vs Kramer in Hell.

  • timetojam

    0.5% sales tax I can do. If it’s more than that, forget it

  • MachoManRandySavage

    The importance of the strong safety. 2014: Kam Chancelor’s hits on Vernon and Demaryius. 2013 Bernard Pollard’s hit on Stevan Ridley…

    with todays passing Offenses, Ds play nickerl more than base. The SS is a coverage LB out there, a key player in today’s D…Tyvon better start stepping up!

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    Will Hill can get a crash course in becoming a real man from Napolean Kaufman & LaMonte Winston … plus Reggie & Dennis personally. if he’s still acting like a jackaxx off the field at Week 6 when we can activate him, chop him and it’s a non-issue. He’s not going to be a cancer in the locker room, never has been.

  • Just Win Baby

    This Mike Schaub guy, I hear he used to be one helluva quarterback. You know, before he got the voodoo curse put on him.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    #33 might be replaced by Dowling at midseason if not sooner… reports say he’s the real deal and may be the steal of this entire draft, not just the 7th round flyers

  • R8erEduc8er

    Yea, I tried. Doesn’t work. Actually, it worked originally and I tried to make it better and only made it worst. It was a pic of Mack running towards/sacking P Manning.

  • Just Win Baby

    I don’t think he can pass the entrance exam. I hear the math is tricky.

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    who put the curse on him? NaVorro Bowman & Tramaine Brock? Those 49ers started the Schaub decline last year in Week 5

  • timetojam

    Thought it was a bad ankle

  • Just Win Baby

    There were angels whispering hymns into my cerebrum that day

  • Guest123

    new post!

  • JerryMcDonalds#1Fan

    injured in Week 6 against the Rams. played pretty awful in Weeks 3 & 5 beforehand

  • Just Win Baby

    I heard he went insane when he found a lice comb in his girlfriends medicine cabinet. He didn’t know whether to say anything or not because he would be confessing to looking through her stuff. I guess his roommate told him he heard she used to be kind of ‘fast’. I dunno….

  • Just Win Baby

    The Raiders could probably take their nine worst guys and field a baseball team with them and win 2 out of three against the Cubs this year. And we technically still hold the rights to Jeff Smaddzjia from when we drafted him out of ND.

    Don’t see CB D.J. Hayden at Monday #Raiders OTA. Had heard he was seen walking in a boot. Will ask Dennis Allen after practice.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Vic Tafur @VicTafur · 1m

    Now see Hayden. On the side watching, with no helmet

  • Rifflicks

    you cried to draft a qb

  • 0ak R8rs

    No. I didn’t. Never wanted a QB in the 5 slot. Repeatedly said to trade down if we wanted one in the first or wait till later rounds. I never loved any of these QBs. Like I said. You’re confused. Or trolling. Either way, you’re wrong. Ask anyone. Check the archives. But get off my nuts cause I never wanted any QB at 5.
