a million dollars a catch, nice.
Al Davis steped up to plate and hit grand slam tonight!
Ellis trieid hard was good at times but ttoo old and hurt.
J walker hrrible player. Good move bringing him in but now proved cant play so tema make gerat move geting rid of him. hopefully denver resign him later this wekek.
Raiders donet need anyway. Have fine recieing corspe now with murphy, schilens, higgins, miller, and some otthers.
no mention of Heyward-Bey among that receiving corps?
yes he they too. as a little durnk when positng last night and couldnt think of the other key receeiver on team
For the time being, Schilens is the #1 (60% catch percentage), and Higgins the #2 (47% catch percentage). Murphy at least has the positive of making some big plays, even though his catching needs work (37% catch percentage).
DHB has not earned the right to be on the field yet. I don't think he is even a decoy at this point. Why work hard at covering a man with a 24% catch percentage? Just put a fast, but lousy corner on him. Let the reset of the secondary worry about someone who might actually catch the ball.
should that be "receiving corpse"?
yes. made typign mistake last ngiht. sorry, but usually always happens anyway
Wow, I forgot Javon Walker was even on the Raiders!
I was in the same boat a couple of days ago. I read somewhere that the Raiders should release Javon Walker, and my first thought was, 'He's still there?'
So did Cable.
Can the Raiders release their owner?
Where are the Atlanta fans complaining that this gets a thread but they don't?
A million bucks a catch. I'm still shaking my head over that. The sad thing is, someone will probably still sign him. He'll never see big money again, but he'll be flotsam at the bottom of someones roster.
Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
