Reporting for Duty

On a brief layover with Cousin of Raider Take in San Jose. Will land on Coliseum asphalt within the hour. Ready to barbecue some winged desert rat and wash it down with the refreshing waters of victory. Looking forward to your takes.

I don't know who he is, but he sure is obsessed with Raider fans and their costumes. Maybe his girlfreind dumped him for a Raider Fan or something.

Nevertheless, best to just ignore the dude (along with PR's ridiculous 911 conspiracy link - do though check out South Park's brilliant and hilarious take on the "Truthers" here).

Go Raiders!

anon, you're a pathetic troll. Get that? You're a fucking troll. You're the lowest of the low. You spend all of your time writing obnoxious posts on the Raider Take blog in a sad plea for attention. I feel sorry for you.

It's clear you must have suffered some trauma in your life. Maybe you have no friends, maybe your father molested you, I don't know for sure. I only know you're complete piece of shit, and a total fucking moron.

Is LaMont Jordan hurt? I didn't see him play and according to the stats he didn't even have a carry? Anyone know what the deal was?

You "manly men" secretly want to be big al (mr.) davis' gay lover. (collectively). Your desires are to be bi-atch slapped and forced to do his twisted sexual bidding while wearing humiliating gay costumes, you pride yourselves on licking that jackass' ass while he spouts out bullshit of how he made the faidas a great organization that you all blindly follow and are convinced is a "nation" Now you tell me who's the basket case. You men are pathetic, and you know it. That is why you read and respond to me. You need a superior intellect to hate so that you can justify your abnormal allegience to this imaginary "nation". "faida national" out, just idolize me baby. I'm all you got. 1-5, you guys are pondscum, I mean awesome.

You know, it sounds like 'anonymous' is calling out for help here. His world is coming down around him. He puts it all on the line predicting a Raider defeat, even posting at halftime. And what happens? The Raiders win. Curses, foiled again.

Sure, his mom probably got knocked up by Matuszak and Villiapiano in a nasty 3-way 30 years ago, and his girlfriend left him for a Raider man in face paint, but he's not scarred by that.

anonymous's real issues have to do with the fact that Raider fans love their team and their fellow fans in the Raider Nation. You see, anonymous lives alone, abandoning his friends and family when they have a problem. And what does he see in Raider fans? Loyalty, love, fellowship. Hell, we even take up collections for fans of other teams who have fallen sick.

We should be flattered that anonymous seeks some vindication by hurling poorly spelled missives at the Raider Nation, and then hiding behind his anonymity. If he really hated the Raiders, he wouldn't even bother going to this site and posting again and again. Does he go to Cardinal fans' sites and tell them they suck? (Do Cardinal fans even have sites?) No, he seeks out real fans because he seeks the real love that can only be found in the Raider Nation.

Rave on, anonymous. And thanks for watching the game today.

The Raiders win! And it was the ONE game I was unable to watch because I was driving to New Hampshire (although I did catch most of it on Sirius radio). And I thought they were doomed once I heard Jordan wasn't playing.

Also, here's a note to everyone who might feel obliged to respond to "anonymous". If you don't feed the trolls, they eventually leave.

Good win. Walter is settling in and the TO's will go away soon. Interior line playing well, tackles still playing bad. D looked agressive all game-- Terdell Sands needs to start, especially vs running team like Steelers. Tony Siragusa's commentary hilarious--here's one example with Raiders up 17-0 "if the Cardinals don't score, the Raiders will win". Wow. Better clear some space on the mantle for that Emmy, Tony....

Didn't have the time, this weekend, to set up my own blog. Below are my impressions, and I'll repost on a new entry by RT if he posts one today.

My takes…

1. If you want to know what the Gilman is supposed to look like in action, go back to the tape and just watch the first quarter. Take out the dropped passes and the penalties, and that is as good a demonstration of what Sid Gilman envisioned as you will see. It's really a beautiful thing, isn't it.

2. Every week Walter is better, and he's getting the complete Gilman course.

3. Let's stop the Leinart/Huff nonsense now. Leinart looked like Walter in week two. Huff (a strong safety) outscored Leinart (a QB) 2-0. Let the name Leinart never be mentioned again in relation to the Raider Nation. The issue is concluded.

4. In answer to Raider Take's question last week... We have a bit more information now. First, Shell says that Walter is given two plays for every huddle. One would assume that there would be one pass and one run, and Walter gets to choose the one he likes best for the defense he's seeing. It is very likely that last week Walter had occasion to call 15 consecutive 1st down running plays. Now that is not necessarily a mistake or a bad thing - unless it happens in every game. It only becomes predictable if we did the same thing last week as we did the week before and this week. Obviously, this week, the Raiders were pass happy on 1st down. Good sign, not bad. Walter is reading and thinking. He's differentiating teams and defenses. In fact he may be further along than I thought he was.

5. As I've said all along, one of the most important things in the Gilman (let's start calling it the "G" as opposed to the "O") is a thinking man's QB. When I saw that Shell said they were always giving Walter two plays, it became clear to me that the Raiders are grooming Walter so that he can call his own plays. The last Raider QB to do it consistently was Marc Wilson. They found out he couldn't do it, so it hasn't been done consistently since. But the Raider QBs capable of doing it since then are Hostetler and Gannon. Hostetler ran the "G", and Gannon the pure WC. Personally, I think every offense works better when the QB is the field general. I'm beginning to think that the reason Walsh is there is not to permanently call the offensive plays, but to teach Walter how to do it.

6. Message to Moss. Randy, your line of clothes will sell far better, and far more consistently if you just take care of business on the field - no matter how well the rest of the team is doing. When you go on the radio and appear to make excuses for yourself, people will respect you less and buy your product less. Four dropped passes on Sunday, Pal! The score should have been 36-9.

7. Message to Porter. Idiot.

8. The Raiders again did not complete a game. As I see it, they put together one complete quarter of football (on the offensive side of the ball - the D did play the whole game).

9. The refs were throwing flags liberally, except when it had to do with pass interference committed by the Cards.

10. If the Raiders can play whole games like they played in the first quarter, they can compete with any team, anytime, any place.

And it's official...

Art Shell has named Andrew Walter the Raider QB until further notice. Regardless of the health of Aaron Brooks.

Fans have tried that before. Several times actually. I even think they did it way back in the 70s.

But I'm actually of the opinion that Al Davis likes it that way. It means that the Raiders always need to be that much better than everyone else, and it breeds that "us against the world" mentality that builds teamwork like nothing else. And that's the zone the Raiders were in this weekend. "It's us against the entire world. Walk away from it with dignity and respect."

I see a Steeler bergie on the horizon. Nothing to stop them piliging the City of Oakland except the Raiders. We are starting to build "our time."

i was wrong about getting to the hurry-up in week 9; they broke it out yesterday along with various screens, and brought back the pass off the end around. Look out Pittsburgh, we're on page 20 of the playbook! Yikes.

I, like Doobie, was on the road and miss the game. However, I was on a 3 day deep sea fishing trip in Aransas Pass, TX. Sorry I missed a beauty of a win.
Things I missed while I was gone, other than the game, was the reason Porter was suspended for 4 days? Other than Shell saying he did some things, and was disruptive in other areas, back tracking what he told the media earlier in the week.
My problem with this, Shell if you don't want the media to know some things, and you want to keep things "in house" (which you should and I respect that); then don't lie about the progression of Porter, just use the viable "NO COMMENT!"
I think it's clear Porter does not want to play for us, and we don't want to play him; so let's get something for him in the off-season. In order to do that, we have to play him at some point so other teams can see what he can do. Free up cap space, sign a player who can help (a RB, mainly) and maybe get a draft out of it too.
Glad to have a win though!

Panty Raider,
Please, Please, PLEASE buy a friggin dictionary, or stop posting! I cringe everytime I see your posts. Its like you are reinforcing a stereotype about illiterate Raider fans. I mean a typo here or there is one thing, but for the love of God man, you write like a 4th grade drop-out.

Go Raiders, 11-5

You know, I think I've actually met "Anon". He's a Donkey fan that lives in LA.

I was introduced to him by a mutual friend (a Bears fan). He introduced us explaining only that he was a Denver fan, and I was a Raider fan. Never talked to him directly after that.

This occured in 1988, when Shanahan was the head coach for one whole season. The Raiders had just acquired Jay Schroeder. While watching the Monday night game between the Raiders and the Donkeys, my phone kept ringing in the first half while the Donkeys were running up a 21 point lead. I never answer my phone during a Raider game.

At half time I checked the message, and there was call after call from this jerk - giving me a play by play of every Raider failure, continually calling them "the faidas."

I called that mutual friend, and told him what was happening, not knowing that the guy he'd introduced me to was the same guy. He told me that "faida" had called and asked for my phone number. Not thinking anything of it, he gave it to him. But now he offered "faida's" number to me.

I went back to the game, and watched the Raiders come back and win that game in a classic Raider come-from-behind victory. Then I called "faida" and asked him if there was any part of that game he wanted to go over with me. He was almost crying, and appologized. He later talked to our mutual friend and told him that he only appologized because he thought his actions had karmacly caused the loss for his beloved Donkeys.

If that's who it is, he's around fifty years old, without a life, erectile dysfunction when it comes to routing for his own team. That's not enough for him, others must suffer. As though he could cause suffering. He only causes anoyance.

Blandarocked: Great takes. I remember that Raiders vs Donkeys game quite well. I actually watched it just a few weeks ago, as I have the entire game on DVD. I am currently tuned into a local radio station here in Phoenix and listening to all the Cardinal fans squeeling about their loss and predicting that we will not win another. I really believe the Raiders are on the right track and have a great chance next week vs the Steelers.
Go Raiders!

I'll gladly eat crow over that one.
I agree with blandarocked, Walter is getting better each week.

Wasn't a flawless game, only 5 points in 2nd half.
5 turnovers, and lots of penalties, but...

Hey, there's no rain. The sun is out,and...

THE RAIDERS WIN !!!!!!!!!!

God, it feels good to say that.
