Tonight at Eight east, 5 pacific, here's a little teaser.
The Oakland Raiders offense appears to be getting on the same page early in the season. The return of Chaz Schilens to full speed practices can only help. With DHB’s improved performance and what the Raiders got out of Louis Murphy last year, the addition of Jason Campbell may be the grinding pad that smoothes out the rough edges that appeared in the offense last year. The offense added two new linemen and a new wide receiver to their practice participants.
Tom Cable says he hasn’t had to encourage the new off field connectivity that the Raiders players are currently participating in, "I think that’s something we talk about in team meetings, looking out for each other and all that; I just think they’re taking the bull by the horns and all that. They’re putting it upon themselves to do those kinds of things and that’s important for the team. It’s good, it’s very good."
Cable says that joint practices with the 49ers or the Cowboys will not happen because it doesn’t fit in the schedule.
Autumn Wind, a commenter on one of my recent articles asked a very good question on an article today, "What was more important to fix this year in the draft and in free agency, the offensive line or run defense?" Taking into consideration which unit was closer to being complete, what do you think Nation?
Tom Cable also adds that he doesn’t know what to do about the RB situation; he likes both guys and thinks both could be number one backs at this level. What’s up Raider nation, what do you think?
I’ve listened to all the commentary from the Raiders players, I’ve read all the reporters articles, I’m ready to chat, are you?
