OD... I have never complained about your posts... Usually honest and well put together... And most of them I liked!

Raiders WR Denarius Moore fell down after catching a pass, got up, and then proceeded to run the wrong way before being tackled.

I would love to see kFc win one more game and hose up their chance at the QB they want. Wouldn't it be something if Oakland stole their QB!

Worst part is that the officials spotted the ball at he point before he got up. Should have been a 2 yard gain.

Palmer gone?

**

With Raiders coach Dennis Allen that the time has come to see quarterback Terrelle Pryor play, the questions becomes whether Allen and the rest of the organization will soon be coming to the conclusion that quarterback Carson Palmer should not play.


Though Allen stopped short of suggesting that Palmer could be benched this season, in the offseason Palmer could, in theory, be cut.

Palmer, who arrived via trade in 2011, is due to earn a base salary of $13 million in 2013. The Raiders may decide that they can’t justify paying that much money to Palmer.

So unless Palmer takes less from the Raiders, he may get nothing and like it. Or nor like it. Either way, it’s hard to see him getting every penny he’s due to make next year.

Give Matt a chance if Palmer is gone. I thought Leinart did well in preseason for the Cowboys but wasn't going to move him to #1. Pryor isn't going to be much in the NFL.

The Oakland Raiders reinstated suspended linebacker Rolando McClain on Monday and released Ron Bartell, who was signed to be the Oakland Raiders' top cornerback in March.

Hey now... your guys should have let him keep running. Why tackle a guy heading to the wrong end zone?

So much for wasting a first and second round pick on palmer...


Terrelle Pryor to start for Raiders


The Oakland Raiders are ready to get a long look at Terrelle Pryor to see if he can be their quarterback of the future.
Pryor got the nod to start Sunday's season finale in San Diego in place of the injured Carson Palmer. After being deemed not ready to be the backup when Palmer got hurt last week in Carolina, Pryor will make his first career start.

"We know what his strengths are, we know what his weaknesses are," coach Dennis Allen said Friday. "But really, to give him an opportunity to go out in a game, against a division opponent, at their place, and give him a chance to play, it gives us a view into the future."

Pryor was chosen over backup Matt Leinart. early in the week that he was leaning to Pryor but wanted to see how practice developed. He said he thought Pryor responded well and now wants to see what his athleticism can bring to a team that has failed to score a touchdown the past two weeks.

Pryor said he's confident he is ready to start his first game since the Sugar Bowl for Ohio State against Arkansas on Jan. 4, 2011.

Pryor was a wasted supplemental pick for the Raiders. They have choked on picks so often it makes Matt Millen look like their GM. Leinart gives them the best chance to win. Pryor gives them the look that will be either false hope for next season (and those Faiders fans will be blabbering like they just found the next Kurt Warner) or realize they need to go waste a 1st round pick on a QB.

Looks like they are done with Palmer and want to know if they need to use their 1st rounder on a QB. Though I really don't get how one game is enough to come to that kind of conclusion.

Then again, maybe they just want to assure themselves the #3 overall pick.

NFL draft bust JaMarcus Russell is attempting a comeback


By Kristian Dyer | Shutdown Corner – 8 hours ago


One of the biggest draft busts in NFL history is trying to re-kindle his football career. Yahoo! Sports has learned that JaMarcus Russell is planning a comeback attempt that he hopes will see him play in the league again. The former No. 1 pick in the 2007 NFL draft has not played a single NFL snap since the 2009 season with the Oakland Raiders.

The reclamation of Russell will follow a tricky road for a quarterback who was always known more for his physical blessings than technique. Russell, 27, who has effectively been out of football since tryouts with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins in 2010, might find overcoming himself his biggest challenge. Currently at 308 pounds, Russell is down from the 320 pounds he weighed this past fall and has been focusing on cardio conditioning the past six weeks to lose the weight.

“My first year out, I couldn’t watch football but after a while, I couldn’t keep the TV off. I got that itchy feeling but now I gotta watch it, gotta watch,” Russell said.

“The last few years, the things going through my life, football is my job and it is how it feeds my family. People would say [that] I didn’t love the game but that pisses me off. People don’t know the real you but I want people to know the real me and see what I can do. People are always saying that I’m a bust. I want show them I’m not. I’m committed to this now.”

Yahoo! Sports has learned that Russell’s mentor through this whole process is former NFL wide receiver Mike Clayton, who like Russell is a LSU product. Over the next couple months, Russell will be training with Brian Martin of TEST Football Academy and TEST West, whose draft products include Joe Flacco and Patrick Peterson among others.

In addition, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia (quarterback technique training), Olympian Ato Boldon (speed training and analysis), Dr. Robert Price of Elite Minds (mental and psychological analysis), former NFL wide receiver Quinn Early (disciplinary work and focus), former New York Giants quarterback Scott Brunner (reading defenses and classroom sessions) and NFL Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk (reading defenses) will work as part of the team trying to reclaim the quarterback’s promise.

In other words, JaMarcus Russell is broke.

Cap casualty season: Here are some likely big-name victims


Carson Palmer, Raiders ($13 million base salary): There is no way Oakland is going to pay him that kind of money to stay, sources said, and Palmer will have to decide how much cash he's willing to walk away from to stay.

Darius Heyward-Bey, Raiders ($7.7 million): He flashed progress in 2011 but had another lost year in 2012. The Raiders are again in a roster/cap crunch and are still trying to get out from under bad contracts. I can't fathom him making this to stay.

Rolando McClain, Raiders ($4 million): He has been nothing but trouble off field, was basically sent home for the final quarter of last season and I would expect the Raiders to look to recoup some signing bonus as well when they officially part with him.

Raiders will lower seating capacity

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 6, 2013, 2:07 PM EST

Getty Images
The Raiders are taking a page out of the Jaguars’ playbook, not on the field but in the stands.

In what is being termed a “capacity adjustment,” the Raiders are planning to block off many upper-deck seats, CSNBayArea.com reports. The move is reminiscent of the tarps the Jaguars have put up in their stadium, blocking off thousands of seats that they’re unable to sell.

Although it is not yet known how many seats the Raiders will block off, it will likely give the Raiders the NFL’s lowest seating capacity. The Raiders already had the second-lowest capacity at 63,132, higher only than the Bears, who can seat 61,500 at Soldier Field.

The Raiders are expected to close “Mount Davis,” the upper deck addition that was part of the deal that got the Raiders to move back to Oakland from Los Angeles in 1996. That addition, which blocked the view of the Oakland hills that was long considered one of the nicest features of the Oakland Coliseum, has long been controversial, and the “Mount Davis” nickname was a shot at the late Raiders owner Al Davis.

The Raiders have frequently struggled to sell tickets in Oakland, and most of their home games have been blacked out. In 2012 they had only one blackout, thanks in part to the new NFL rule that allowed teams to lift blackouts while selling only 85 percent of their tickets
