coach dennis allen will break tradition of *prioritizing speed. we're not going to take guys just because they run real fast "he said" that doesn't correlate to being a good football player.
*tarver says he don't know if RAIDERS D will be 3-4 or4-3 until after free agency and after the draft?
rm; how do you not know? they say most guys are 3-4 already! daz buche!
*the (O) is pretty much set! according to d allen. they will probably go with the west coast offence and zone blocking. better fit for dmac.
*practice surface at RAIDERS facility will be closely inspected. there was several foot injury's last year. d allen
shaugnessy, ford and d-mac, good to go for 2012!!!

Speed is a great Raider tradition, but it doesn't really mean a great football player. If a guy is a great player speed makes him better, but he needs the other essentials to go with it (like good hands for catching the football). You know I remember a year when we passed on the fastest RB (Chris Johnson) in favor of Darren McFadden and Johnson has actually done more.

"if he's not good on film, then i'm afraid not" (gm) r mackenzie on whether the team would continue an al davis tradition of drafting the player with the fastest time in the 40yd dash.
well said HC. but i do have to say dennis allen is going to inherit a decently good speedy team for his offense. that was al davis's dream of beating teams with speed. he got some guys like dhb that people did not give much credit to. and for good reason. dhb seems like he has developed but developed slowly. dmac was known to fumble but has speed. he too has worked out but of course, injury has slowed his playing process. now we have taiwon jones that needs to show his skills. we have ford, and he (al davis) loved speed with (cb's). or better said, with any player. i know there are guys that don't need speed to be great athletes but right now other teams are using speed to win vs another aponent. so to me, "if he looks good on film" jump on it!

"If the raider is fastest, chances are others will get caught by the police after a convenience store robbery." That was chiseled on Big Al's tombstone

REPORTS;
m huff is indicating he will remain a RAIDER!
m huff is due a roster bonus of 4 mill. on twitter he said he certainly was not thinking about leaving. he had a great talk with dennis allen, "and i love what he has planned for us on (D)"
that would mean he would have to be willing to restructure his contract.

head coach dennis allen you are second defensive minded coach the raiders have hired since john madden was linebackers coach at san diego state and oakland as well.i know .that we dont have any much draft choices this year but free agency will make that up.in 2013 i hope the raider nation will draft a quarterback in the first round.i like coaching staff you have hired mark davis owner and general manager reggie mckenzie will have confidence in you to win afc west,afc and super bowl titles back to the fans of the raider nation.you are second head coach in the league from texas &am since the .texans hired gary kubiak from denver.david fisherp.s.have you met coach kubaik.
