Scouting report: Oakland Raiders

Scouting report: Oakland Raiders

There are 7 comments on the The Dallas Morning News story from Nov 26, 2009, titled Scouting report: Oakland Raiders. In it, The Dallas Morning News reports that:

The Oakland Raiders still have the speed to run the vertical stretch offense that became the trademark of the franchise's championship teams of the 1970s and '80s. The Raiders just lack the skill to catch those deep balls any more.

Cable pointed out that BH-Bey was a hard worker, came from a run first pro style offense and had a nose for the playbook and was a good "Team Player" which is all well and good when you're trying to avoid having primmadonnas in the locker room. However, when questioned about his reputation of dropping passes he always bypassed it with "He got better as his career went along." I was surprised that he actually caught the TD pass. I don't know if Al Davis just had better sense in the John Madden era or if John Madden knew how to talk it into Davis, but I remeber in the Madden era the rule was "If you can't catch the football, I'll find someone who can." Louis Murphy seems to have gotten a litte better with Gradkowski at QB, but I'm not soled on him either.

I watched the Texas A&M-Texas game and A&M's passing offense looked like the Raiders of old. Both Colt McCoy and Jerrod Johnson looked more NFL ready than Jamarcus Russell and I would not mind seeing McCoy in a Raider uniform next year. Johnson is from my preferred NCAA team but he's only a junior and I think he needs one more year of college ball because he sat as a FR and struggled as a SOPH and looks good as a JR but needs his SR year to show true progress. Plus I think both ATM and UT have better receiving corps than the Raiders. It's all about building chemistry and I think if the Raiders could snag a good QB-WR tandem that played well in college it would be an improvement...Heck we're actually halfway there since we got Louis Murphy maybe Tim Tebow would be a Raider, but he's not an Al Davis type QB but he won a national title and is on track for another...Just wishful thinking awaiting the season things turn around...

You know as well as I do Old Al isn't going to pick up a high profile QB in the draft....much like Gallery...he wouldn't touch an O-Lineman that would cost anything for years.....but who knows...if he slips low enough....
