WOW Greg you are making me hurt from laughing.... You're right this QB thing has turned into a circus.... But before you drop the 3 steps backwards thing let's wait till week 6 before you drop that.... Cause what happens if they go 4-2 or better?.... what will be the tune then? ...... Hell even 3-3 after that first 5 game stretch.... Would you still feel a 3 steps backwards feeling?  We got TONS of talent and by default we should win at least 6-7 games but if DMC stays healthy and takes his game to another level I like our chances this year!

Jackson was asked how he wound up with six running backs (including fullback Marcel Reece), seven wide receivers and four tight ends, including two rookies.

"They say I'm an offensive coach, right?" Jackson said with a laugh.

Another reason that the Raiders kept four tight ends: Jackson said there is a chance starter Kevin Boss (knee) will not be ready for the opener

AND WE HAVE THE "MOTHER" OF ALL BUFFOONERY.......SHANE LECHLER AS OUR #3 QB...

I think Al Davis is just trying to duplicate the stuff he did in the 70's and 80's. Remember who the Raiders "Emergency QB" always was back then? That's right, it was Ray Guy. I remember him going in a few times, and he did pretty well. I remember the commentators on TV always talking about what a good athlete he was, the way he would tackle kick returners if they made it past the kick return team.

Oh yeah, the Raiders had another kicker who made a pretty fair QB too. What was his name? George Blanda?

Who is the Raiders #3 QB? Shane Lechler...
« Reply #347 on: September 05, 2011, 08:53:24 AM »
Hue Jackson was asked during Sunday's press conference, "who is the Raiders #3 emergency quarterback?" The answer turned out to be a 6-time pro bowler who has never thrown a pass in an NFL game.

"His name is Shane Lechler, and he's pretty good...I trust him...He takes snaps...he's done it all. I know he can get it done in a pinch if we need him to.", answered Coach Jackson.

Raiders Practice Squad List: 8 cuts brought back…
« Reply #346 on: September 05, 2011, 08:31:43 AM »
The Oakland Raiders practice squad is set following eight signings on Sunday.
All eight were cut by the team Saturday afternoon as they trimmed their roster to the 53-man limit.

The following eight players make up the Raiders practice squad: TE Kevin Brock, DE Mason Brodine, DT Jamie Cumbie, LB Jeremy Leman, OL Alex Parsons, WR Eddie McGee, CB Sterling Moore and FB Manase Tonga.
(what? No Sam Williams? ???)

There had been some scuttle the team would sign a quarterback to the eight-man squad.
However, Terrelle Pryor’s decision to appeal his five-game suspension may have altered the team’s plans.

Deadspin (sports version of TMZ I guess) is reported TP scored a 7 on his wonderlic test.

Worderlic test is only one factor used in basing a decision like, height, weight, speed, etc.. Many argue it's validness to play QB but like I said it's another piece of the evaluation process.

BTW - Alex Smith of the whiners scored a 40.

Pryor = Jabusto.....Thats my take...You make your own mind up...This kid DID NOT FEEL SORRY FOR SHIT! He took the money and RAN..."I feel bad for the Coach" Bowlshit! The very next thing out of his mouth was...."I have to move on with my life" What a selfish Bitch....Not...I feel for his family and his reputation or anything that you would say after ENDING somone elses entire career....NOPE.....LOSER! Until he proves me wrong....
     Raider greg,
I am a HUGE Ohio State fan-after Pryor was out selling 20 items from the equipment department at ohio state....he sank the ohio state ship, got Tressel fired-hosed the Osu program.That selfish SOB only cares about hisself...period,end of report...he didn;t give a Damm about ohio State nor the program...nor Tressel!!!
     I Finally thought i was over with hearing about that A_HOLE!!!! then i hear the raiders drafted him...i just want that jerk out of my life!!

tressell got tressel fired.  He lied and withheld info.  Pryor wasn't the only OSU player doing what he did.  They bought pryor out of high school.  Tressell ran a dirty program.  How about blaming the adult in the room.  Who gives a shit what he did in college.  Many superstars in the NFL took money and such in college.  That shouldn't matter nor should Pryor be suspended.  Tressell sank the OSU ship not any one player
So you LOVE the Pryor move do you......Oh great one....Please tell your minions why Pryor will be the greatest football player EVER.....Come off it Millerlite.....The kid is a punk strait up....Never said Tressel was clean just that this clown we wasted a 3rd round pick is a spoiled punk that cares for himself.....ONLY.....Come on Millerlite....Share your wisdom....... :P

Worderlic test is only one factor used in basing a decision like, height, weight, speed, etc.. Many argue it's validness to play QB but like I said it's another piece of the evaluation process.

BTW - Alex Smith of the whiners scored a 40.


Pryor's Wonderlic test: "The report of a seven test score is erroneous," says test giver, Steeler's GM
http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/6914510/terrelle-pryor-wonderlic-score-better-7-says-pittsburgh-steelers-gm


Hey, you know they have the Wonderlic test online. Maybe we should do a Wonderlic league and post the results on here.  ;D

Here are some samples of the types of questions they ask you:
http://www.personality-and-aptitude-career-tests.com/sample-wonderlic-test.html

(seems pretty damned easy to me....I just took it and got them all right. Can't imagine only getting 7!)


by the way, it says on this website that Dan Marino got a 14. Well, that's not too high, but I guess it is twice as high as a 7! Former Raiders QB Vince Evans got an 8.

They also have posted the average team scores of a few teams. The Raiders scored 23.3. The 49ers scored 21.7.

http://www.personality-and-aptitude-career-tests.com/nfl-wonderlic-test.html

Nice...deadspin for ya....the kid is under the microscope and obviously some are looking for anything to bring the him down.

Thanks for the link Randy....i am curious in taking the test. I gotta beat Terry Bradshaw......

If Pryor had trouble with a test like that you can only assume he is an idiot......if I had to guess I'd put those questions in the 3rd to 4th level elementary school level. We aren't all rocket scientists on this forum, but did any of you get one problem wrong?
Can this be an accurate sample of what gave our new quarterback so much trouble?
If it is, they should have made him wear #2 instead of forbidding him to wear it!

by the way, it says on this website that Dan Marino got a 14 or 16. Well, that's not too high, but I guess it is twice as high as a 7! Former Raiders QB Vince Evans got an 8. Vince Young scored a 6 on his first attempt.

They also have posted the average team scores of a few NFL teams. The Raiders scored 23.3. The 49ers scored 21.7.

http://www.personality-and-aptitude-career-tests.com/nfl-wonderlic-test.html


this describes the test pretty wellhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonderlic_Test


and here's an interesting predictor for the future success of a quarterback, based on Wonderlic plus a few other factors:

"John P. Lopez of Sports Illustrated proposes a 26-27-60 rule to predict a quarterback's success in the NFL: At least a 26 on the Wonderlic, at least 27 college starts, and at least 60% pass completion, and lists several examples of successes and failures based on the rule."


the bottom line I guess?:

"a 2009 study by Brian D. Lyons, Brian J. Hoffman, and John W. Michel found that Wonderlic test scores failed to positively and significantly predict future NFL performance for any position."


and here's an interesting thought....scoring TOO HIGH could be a problem too:

Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com observes that,

    "scoring too high can be as much of a problem as scoring too low. Football coaches want to command the locker room. Being smarter than the individual players makes that easier. Having a guy in the locker room who may be smarter than every member of the coaching staff can be viewed as a problem — or at a minimum as a threat to the egos of the men who hope to be able when necessary to outsmart the players, especially when trying in some way to manipulate them."

Is it a good move?
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ycn-9027193

Randy, it was either sign sheppard or activate Rod Woodson

or they could do what Greg talked about in one of his shows.....shove some of Rod Woodson's DNA up some DB's ASS!

Deadspin (sports version of TMZ I guess) is reported TP scored a 7 on his wonderlic test.

Worderlic test is only one factor used in basing a decision like, height, weight, speed, etc.. Many argue it's validness to play QB but like I said it's another piece of the evaluation process.

BTW - Alex Smith of the whiners scored a 40.

7!  That is sad.  Most teams want at least a 21 for a quarterback...

Pryor = Jabusto.....Thats my take...You make your own mind up...This kid DID NOT FEEL SORRY FOR SHIT! He took the money and RAN..."I feel bad for the Coach" Bowlshit! The very next thing out of his mouth was...."I have to move on with my life" What a selfish Bitch....Not...I feel for his family and his reputation or anything that you would say after ENDING somone elses entire career....NOPE.....LOSER! Until he proves me wrong....

Team announced the signing of former Pro Bowler Lito Sheppard via Twitter today. Finally some veteran depth at a position that needed it! Wish they would have done it sooner!

hallelujah!!! ;D  Not the best CB out there, but I welcome depth at the position because I AM TIRED OF WATCHING THE SECONDARY GET BURNED!!!

AMEN!  Great pick-up.  Some may say his best years are behind him as he is in his 9th year but a solid CB who might also bring some leadership to our young secondary.

At this point, I would settle for signing Elvis "Toast" Patterson

 I don't know about the rest of you but #2 seems permanently tainted. I hope Pryor has some forethought about this and takes any other # available.
Or maybe it turns out #2 will suit him.....hmmmm.
He sure as hell is fast.

Pryor is an athlete.  I do remember a georgia qb who was turned into a wide receiver and did pretty damn good.  Superbowl MVP matter of fact.  He has been a athlete playing QB.  What can it hurt.  Our current QB is better than our receivers.  We have a greater need at receiver.  Welcome Slash 2.0
