Couldn't agree more, this is a good move.  I however thought he would be a great player for us when we drafted him :(  But....he's not, and has been a huge disappointment.  First of many to be gone when the season concludes ;)

I think Seymour, Huff, Kelly, DHB, and possibly even Dmac & Palmer may be hitting the trail in the future.  I love some of these guys but average production for top-rate salaries are going to be a thing of the past in Oaktown....which is the biggest reason we have went downhill so fast this season.  No depth past the starters...because there is no funds to pay them!

Well, as pissed as I am with this season "progression"  ;D - I love this move. 

I have NEVER been a fan of this kid.  He is immature and does not want to work hard.  As much as we bitch about this team and its players, I think we all know we want players on this team who want to work hard and make plays.  Just maybe this also has silver lining - if you are not producing or for that matter, playing hard - your ass is gone.  Sets a good precedent for the organization.  Lord knows we have had enough problems.  As far as I'm concerned, I want all these guys gone who can't produce or stay healthy consistently.   

McClain has been a clown since day 1.  He throws a temper tantrum at Wednesday's practice and then he posts he doesn't want to be here.  Good riddance.

NOW....thinking ahead.  Draft Teo Mant'i Teo  You will have a dominant LB a la Seau/Urlacher for the next decade.

Travis Goethal to IR never thought he was good I thought the only reason they kept him was to have depth for cheap. So hopefully we can get somebody who is worth having at backup.

Just saw Bartell was activated for Baltimore and Pat lee did not make the trip so he was cut. This was a dumb move he was not the worst cornerback if anyone should have been cut it should have Joseilo Hanson. Stupid move.....

Where did you hear that Pat Lee was cut? It's not listed on the Raiders transactions page. Don't see any articles about it either.

http://www.raiders.com/team/transactions.html

Saw tweets sorry not official yet but many tweets and he was healthy and didn't make the trip
OK.....I guess the rumors were correct on Twitter. It's official now. Pat Lee cut, Shawntae Spencer on IR

Did a quick search and all I could find that Raiders "are going to cut" Pat Lee.

I agree with Kyle, it would be a STUPID MOVE.  Pat Lee has actually done a decent job.

So McFadden has a high ankle sprain...that's just beautiful.  Oh yeah, and Goodson is hurt as well.

Well....Reggie you better go find someone because Raider Nation will not be satisifed with a backfield of Taiwan Jones, Owen Schmitt and Marcel Reece.  (This is no slam on Reece...albeit telented, he is not a tailback.)

Kahlil Bell, Ryan Grant come to mind right off the bat.

And please, I don't want to hear about Michael Bush.  He is gone.  Screw him.  He didn't want to be here, now he can sit on the pine and watch Matt Forte.

Looks like McClain has been regulated to the bench...well, at least some of the time.  With limited playing time during the Falcons game, the Raider D was more tenacious (in my opinion).  I have made my feelings known about this guy on this board in the past....he is overrated and simply not that good.  I am tired of Raiders fans making excuses for this guy.  Trade him now while he is at least worth something.

Speaking of LBs, I would absoluely go bananas if the Raiders could draft Manti Te'o from Notre Dame.  Great player.

I honestly thought we would try to trade McClain during the draft for a pick (who knows maybe we did).  But that is good news as far as I'm concerned that he'll be riding the bench more...

RB Steven Jackson from the Rams allowed to void his final year. Now HE would be a great back up to Mcfadden. Big Power Runner who could also break for a big play with his speed. Really hope the Raiders look into him.

Dennis Allen could go 2-14... But I don't think Reggie would fire him. He's the handpicked guy, plus he is a young'un.

What scares me is Dennis Allen is the next Rahim Mooris (defensive back coach) Rahim Morris had his Bucs with a 4-12 record or something like that in 2010 & he followed it up with a even more stinkier season the next year.

If Dennis Allen loses, then he will lose the respectability in the locker room.

Sorry to sound like a negative Nate.... I believe we will win this weekend. We have too. Just giving 2 cents on the young coaches out of their depth.

I felt like crap after the game myself....but I re-watched it on my DVR the next day. Didn't look as bad as I had remembered. We were very much in it (within 7 points) until that blocked punt. That's what turned the game around. We had plenty of screw-ups before that, but were battling and staying in it. Yeah, granted....San Diego wasn't all that great, and the crowd noise helped us a lot.....until we got behind and the crowd got taken out of it....and we know the Raiders haven't been a good come-from-behind team for a LONG time.

Palmer threw too many balls that were either a little short or a little long....and our receivers dropped several that would have continued our drives....but we did make some good plays. McFadden looked good until he got overused and San Diego started keying on him. We didn't have enough other weapons. Sucks that Jacoby Ford had to have surgery. Good thing Moore is coming back. Hope he is healthy and stays that way. I have my doubts.

What did you think about Knapp's play calling? I liked the crossing patterns to McFadden and getting him the ball in space. Some of the intermediate passes were good. Palmer throws to a spot though....and the receivers were too often not in that spot when the ball arrived. Too many plays where the defender had just as good a chance at getting the ball as the receiver.

Yeah, 15 more games. Too late to abandon the zone running scheme and switch back to power running...after gearing up for that offense all off-season. Gotta just go with it now. Let's hope that we improve quickly and find a way to overcome the problems, injuries, etc. This repeating story every season is getting TOO old!   :(    We have a new regime, and hopefully they will bring about a change for the better. But like Greg said, if we do have a crappy record this season, Reggie will have his prized picks next year. As long as he doesn't pick another JaMarcus Russell. Actually, if we did have a high 1st round pick like that, I'll bet Reggie would trade it for multiple lower picks. I've heard he likes quantity...since not all picks pan out....he plays the odds that at least MOST of them will be good ones. I don't think he likes to put all of his eggs in one basket.
Yeah Randy I think you covered it all on that post!  I feel the same way...even thou I am still pissed about Reggie hiring Dennis Allen... I think he's a whimp and foils under pressure... When Gruden became coach you could immediately feel the changes in the team... the way they fought hard the perfect execution of pre-snap shifts on offense... Gruden was the Pioneer on getting mis-matches in the west coast offense with shifting around players etc.... We won 2 8-8 years followed with a 12-4 and 10-6 the next 2! So far were 0-2 and feel dead!

But my past experinces in watching football I know so much can change by the end of the year!  I mean can anyone on this site please admit they knew the NYG were going to win the SB after their shitty start and 9-7 record?  NO!  So anything can happen... But the only thing that shakes my confidence is Dennis Allen! I think he doesn't have what it takes to win a SB he already seems scared and further behind the coaching curve then most aspiring upcoming rookie HC.... I like Reggie!  I am glad we got a real GM now there is no denying that fact... But his first hire of HC was a mistake! The choice should have been Gruden. They had GB ties and he would have made a huge difference right away, maybe even directed us to a 2-0 start not 0-2... Cause both games we lost believe it or not were realistically winnable! Like you said about the SD game we were in it till mid 3rd QTR and last week Vs MIA we had a 10-7 lead!.. .With this talent and team Gruden would have gotten those wins.... I can't wait around for a rookie coach to learn how to win in the NFL!..... That is why this team should have brought home Chuckie... oh well... Let's see what happens.... Dennis Allen has 14 games left. He gets to 8-8 he survives next year, if not.... it's going to be a long abyss of losing and experimenting.

Just for Greg ...

Just for Greg, the Raiders signed CB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, and re-signed Vaughn Meatoga. What's more Raider than a meat toga? But Chimdi Chekwa stays on the practice squad. How bad is he that he can't get on the field while other players are hurt and the team is desperate at CB? We need a backfield of Asomugha, Chekwa, Owusu-Ansah, and Ndukwe. Epic. Any I'm missing?

Hey guys let's not hit the panic button yet.... LOTS OF FOOTBALL to be played and I think we'll be fine.... The SD game was a debacle and shame no doubt... But I promised myself I'd give this team a chance ...16 games... they got 15 left.... Let's wait and see and be patient and not call it the season just yet..... Moore comes back and Palmer throws to other receivers  other then DMC... We can win games.... this 5 game stretch ahead is BRUTAL!... @MIA,Vs PITT,@DEN,@ATL,Vs JAX ...So a steep hill to climb but if we can escape too 4-4 by the half way mark we could make it still... Wait and see... sucks

With Ford and Bartell now out for who know how long, it is really time to bring in a vet and at least one fo the se positions. Im not sure who. Dont know if Plaxico got picked up yet and i really dont want to say Chad Johnsons name but anything will help Palmer at this point. CBs are thin in the NFL right now so we might be stuck there. Hopefully somethign will happen soon.

I hear you.  Some moves need to be made.  Plax is worth bringing in just for a red zone threat.  As for Chad Johnson, a media circus I could do without.  A suspension is looming as well for him...he is way beyond damaged goods.

Sorry folks..... This is our team and it aint gettin any better this season..... REBULDING AGAIN!! How many fuckin times are we gonna rebuild? I am sick and fuckin tired of rebuilding every fuckin season..... Look the Raiders have already looked at these clowns and are NOT moving in that direction..... We are who we are and this season we are a 4 or 5 win team at best.... Oh and Palmer will most likely be hurt... and DMC is in his second to last year of contract.... He will be gone next year...... The Draft is where we will get our new team from..... FUCK!

More good news......Ford is out for foot surgery and Bartell has a broken left shoulderblade (maybe back in six weeks).

I am trying to stay positive but this team breaks my heart every freakin' year  :-\
