" Well, the good folks of Salem declared you a drunk, not a witch. You're sprung."

"A witch suspended beneath Saturn as its stationed direct exhaulted in its own house cannot lie. Reputable sources say it's why Odysseus himself dallied so long on Circe's island."

"Ah, children, be afraid of going prayerless to bed, lest the Devil be your bedfellow."

I know we all don't agree on who's cool and who's not, so I have a variety. Just in case anybody needs one.

Looking at the future

Because I thought maybe we'd like to take a break from calling for Reggie's head, Allen's head, Knapp's head, Palmer's head, and well hell, just behead the lot of them.

Apparently the Raiders will be watching Connecticut vs. W. Michigan


Prospects to watch: Western Michigan: QB Alex Carder, DE Paul Hazel, OT Dann O'Neill, FS *Johnnie Simon, CB *Lewis Toler; Connecticut: OT *Kevin Friend, CB Dwayne Gratz, TE Ryan Griffin, DE Jesse Joseph, RB *Lyle McCombs, OLB Sio Moore, ILB **Yawin Smallwood, DT *Shamar Stephen, WR Nick Williams, DE/OLB Trevardo Williams, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Ryan Tannehill


A side note about the draft. Not relevant to the Raiders, but a lot of people have Tannehill going in the top 10. Just wondered what people on this site think about that. I don't see it, with the amount of picks he's thrown in college, not even having seen a pro defense yet. It's true he had one monster game, but a lot of shaky ones as well.


Big Las Vegas Style Betting!

Win like the pro handicappers do and rake in the cash!!

Pryor Watch


"Every week, I get asked numerous questions about rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Is he going to play? Why doesn’t Jackson put him in late in one-sided games? How does he look in practice? Well, I took many of those questions to Pryor in an attempt to provide some insight into a player who missed almost all of training camp after arriving via the supplemental draft in late August, served a five-game suspension to start the season and has spent most of his time watching veterans Jason Campbell, Kyle Boller and Carson Palmer in practice. "I’m coming along well," Pryor said. "I’m really getting used to the speed of the game from the defensive perspective of getting in on me. It’s getting better. I can’t really complain. I just got to wait." That doesn’t mean Pryor can’t spend his time gleaning information from three veterans, as well as offensive coordinator Al Saunders and Jackson. Pryor finally is at the point where he feels comfortable with the offense, and he is ready to put into action the things he has learned the past four months or so. "I can say the plays and I got everything down," Pryor said. "I know the protections. It took me about two or three months. It was frustrating because I didn’t get to hit the ground running. It took me awhile to catch up because I didn’t start from Day One. But now, I’m ready to go." It’s unlikely that Pryor will play Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs or in the regular-season finale against the San Diego Chargers on Jan. 1. He has played one down so far, when he motioned from a wide receiver position to the quarterback on a fourth-and-one play. Alas, he got called for a false-start penalty and hasn’t played again. For now, Pryor said he is eager to have an entire offseason so that he can get a chance to show Jackson, his teammates and Raiders fans what he can do once he gets a chance to play. "I just can’t wait to start when everybody starts equal so I can have a chance to get some reps and get some plays in," Pryor said. "That’s all I’m looking forward to, just playing. I want to show the city what I got and help the team as much as I can."

Bey's Career Best Game


"Heyward-Bey is coming off the best game of his young career. He had eight catches for 155 yards and a touchdown in last week’s loss to Detroit—the most yardage for a Raiders wide receiver since Jerry Rice in 2003."
