    I dunno, if they bench Walter that pretty much says to me they want to go in a different direction OR they want to give Brooks a shot. Brooks had a chance and he was a trainwreck, but Shell is old school and prolly gives seniority to Brooks. Brooks is not even a temporary answer at QB. We need to figure out whether Walter can handle the load THIS SEASON, not 2 years from now. There is a franchise QB [Quinn] that is sitting in the top5 who I think would be a perfect fit for the Raiders and if they don't want Walter, than get him now.

    If management doesn't like Walter that is fine, but don't half ass it and maybe play him this week or that week or maybe Brooks next week and so on. Make a decision and stick with it. Make a commitment one way or the other. Half-assing it and buying free agents just b/c they played well in the Super Bowl has been like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound. Temporary solutions are not acceptable. I'm not interested in a franchise that wins temporarily, I want to win consistently and always be in a position to win. Now I'm pissed off cause thinking about it, I know Shell will put Brooks in and we're gonna do the hokey pokey at QB the rest of the season. We will get no answers and waste next year doing the same ******* thing. I swear to God if Brooks starts, I'm writing a strongly worded email to the Raiders! :P


    PS - Sorry about the rant, I don't even know who is gonna start. But it gets frustrating when you see ppl make the same stupid decisions over and over again. I think most of the ppl in this thread could build a winning franchise again in Oakland quicker than those in charge at the moment.

      Preach on brother
      I also agree with what Walter said.

          After months of biting his tongue, he comments on something that everyone saw (as well as the Fabian INT) and gets fined for it. He was right about the Raiders getting screwed.

          Oldie but a goodie.

            I don't blame him one bit he's tired of getting sacked every time he drops back.

            • I've been trying to keep an eye on the headlines to see who we are starting...haven't run across anything yet. Better not be Brooks. We need to give Walter more PT to see if we need to draft Quinn or not.

                Shell hasn't announced who is going to start yet.

                Raiders quarterback Aaron Brooks, out two months with a bruised chest muscle, was deemed healthy enough to play again Wednesday, and he shared first-team snaps in practice with Andrew Walter.

                But, Art Shell isn't ready to name Brooks his starting quarterback. Not yet, anyway, and this is a decision that could stall out until Sunday's game at Kansas City.

                  • You have to think that even if Brooks gets the start, he'll be on a really short leash.

                      I would hope so, he had the butter fingers early on. Fumbled all the time it seemed.

                      • Raiders DT Warren Sapp recently told a group of fifth-graders that his job is to "kill the man with the ball." (And then one of the kids asked, "How do we give the ball to Art Shell?")

                              Trent's first game back. Possibly some rust on his part. So if the Defense plays lights out, and the offense can manage one scoring drive I'd say you have a pretty good chance.
