If Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie could sit at a computer and construct a tight end from the players he has in camp, replacing the 79 receptions from the departed Brandon Myers wouldn't be an issue.

what's scary is, dennis allen is looking for a player to step it up at every position. it seems and sounds like mo one is doing that for him except maybe a few players here and there. now i know it's only the 5th day of t-camp but it sounds like d allen is getting a lil frustrated with some of the positions where players should show juuust a lil more than normal. at least so that he can say, okay, if no one, at least this guy. it's even getting me frustrated (lol). shoot, pre-season is almost here!

Ausberry is the man. He should have gotten more field time last year.

This sunday we have the HOF game. I fully intend to turn the television volume up quite loud, stand with arms extended and close my eyes. Revel in the experience of the season. And, i got the Sunday ticket again this year! Only way to do football!

i normally get a good percentage of the RAIDER games here on local t.v. it goes back and forth between seahawks and RAIDERS. depending on who's doing better. so, yea, that's how it went last season. i get the "redzone" program they show the plays when a team is in the redzone and ready to score. it's only 10 dollars a month. but for me it works well. sometimes i will head on down to the RAIDER bar on certain games. i haven't got excited about a RAIDER season like normal. "HOPE THIS SEASON IS DIFFERENT". but, it is what it is! BUT, i am excited over all of the nfl season! glad for those of you with season tickets and sunday ticket or even to be able to go to just at least one game as long as you get to watch the RAIDERS, it's cool!

I was really high on Nick Kasa when he was in college but he seems to have been silent since getting drafted.

I am looking forward to the pre-season games more this year than usual, to see what some of the rookies look like. Always liked Ausberry too, so hopefully his blocking game has improved. Let's see which receiver(s) rise to the top this year. I'm liking the linebacker and DB additions. Bring on some football!

Agreed. I watched all of Oregon's football games in 2007, and up until that time, never saw an offense like it. I still haven't. A spread option team with power running plays? Dominant offensive line play and great rb's? Non-gimmicky passing? WTH is this! Turns out 2007 was the first year a young, lop sided mouthed coach by the name of Chip Kelly was OC under HC Mike Belotti. The playcalling and play design blew me away. Can't wait to see the Eagles in the next few years once Kelly get some players there.

Kelly doesn't run a "system" per say, but he does do some things better than anyone.

im only a few miles away from the ducks where chip kelly coached, but still haven't gone to a game the few yrs. i've been here. i watch their football games and i gotta say, this coach has been great and has a great style of coaching. the only thing is, i wonder how his style will transform into the nfl. he loves and plays with speed. a lot of run and pass options no huddle type of plays. i can't wait to see how and if works out for him and his players. it could be the beginning of something new in the nfl if everything works out for him. eagles play in oakland nov. 3rd by then we will see how both teams are doing. GO RAIDERS!
