Some basic new out of Raider camp...

- Derrick Burgess has been the most unstoppable player on that Oakland defense. Whether this is due to the lack of quality offensive tackles or whether he's back to his 2006 form is unknown, but he is head and shoulders above the rest of the defensive line right now.

- Drew Carter might be the most impressive receiver Oakland has right now. Walker has been decent and Curry is always solid, but Carter has developed a good connection with JaMarcus Russell and might be a potential breakout guy this season.

- Kwame Harris still sucks.

- Michael Huff has been far more active playing the free safety spot, making plays like he never did when he played strong safety. He's been flashing that speed and breaking on the ball nicely.

- Thomas Howard and Kirk Morrison are playing the pass so well lately that the Raiders' Dime defense will feature two linebackers instead of the more typical one 'backer configuration.

- JaMarcus Russell has been inconsistent. Some days he puts on absolutely throwing clinics (we have a great practice quarterback here), and other days he makes simple mistakes.

- Nnamdi Asomugha and DeAngelo Hall are everything they should be so far. Both have been making a ton of plays on the ball.

Oh, I forgot to add, Anthony Wright looks like **** out there and Woodson looks good. Wright is in SERIOUS jeopardy of not making the team. Yea, David carr might make it.

Man thats damn exciting. DBs are one of my favorite groups of players and Oakland is so perfect. You have 2 guys who can shut down the opposing WRs and a free roaming safety that will be making plays all over the field.

Can't wait to watch the Raiders this year. Especially with Russell and McFadden.

Apparently Gibril Wilson has left a big impression to. He's emphasized his desire to play in the box repeatedly, something that fits exactly what the Raiders defense needed. If he can aid the run game enough to motivate opposing offenses to pass a little more, Oakland defense could get a lot better really fast.

Yeah he fits the bill really well. I think that your DTs need alot more presence in the middle. You guys need a huge NT. I also think that as much as Morrison is a beast in coverage, he could afford to be a bit tougher against the run.

Antwan Odom, the Bengals newly acquired DE was injured today and was seen leaving the complex with a boot on his left foot. Nothing has been said about the seriousness of the injury yet. Hope he's alright.

Default Oakland TC Concerns

-Kwame has already missed two practices with a 'sore back' and there has only been one practice free of false-starts for the oline. Kwame has not looked good in Pass Protection, and has also perpetuated his penchant for false starts. Didn't this guy got to Stanford??

-Center-QB exchange has been suspect, something we Raider fans have unfortunately grown accustomed to.

-Johnny Lee Higgins is the projected punt returner, Tyvon Branch the Kickoff returner. McFadden has been seen taking some kickoffs as well.

I am pretty worried about the O Line.

LYNCH LOOKING PHYSICAL: One player that was certainly ready to put on the pads Monday was Marshawn Lynch. Not only was he blocking effectively, he was knocking some linebackers down.

Ironically after the first set of blocking drills, there was a special teams segment that he was not a part of, so Lynch went down to the other end of the field with the starting linebackers and hit the sled with them.

"I wanted to see it from the other side," Lynch told Buffalobills.com.

Lynch and Dwayne Wright looked strong through the hole on a few runs, but there was a fair amount of penetration by the defense in the run game. We'll see who gets the better of the play in the next pads practice, which comes tomorrow night.

I agree that their secondary is awesome but it's a bit of a shame because I think the support up front isn't gonna let them show what they can do. Overall, that defense has too many holes for an offense to exploit.

the OL is the Raiders' achilles heel, and it's a bit one. You guys did a pretty good job adressing all the problem areas (even though Al Davis overpaid for most) but to be honest, that lack of OL is gonna be painful.

Bottom line is, JaMarcus and MacFadden won't be very effective if half the opposing teams' DL is in the backfield.

I'm not terribly worried about McFadden not being effective. The Raider run game was more than fine last year, and while Kwame Harris can't pass block he's definitely a better run blocker than Barry Sims. The lefthand duo of Harris and Gallery should be bruising. But, yeah, when the Raiders fall behind and have to throw the ball, you wonder if the o-line will keep Russell upright.

-Peppers seems to have bounced back nicely. Last year around TC there were rumors that he had a virus or a mystery injury because he seemed lethargic and unable to spark. This year he's been flying around the ball, chasing down backside, collapsing the offensive line. Back to his old form, which is brilliant news.

-The Panthers defense has been simplified this year considering that most of the veteran leadership has either retired or been fired.

-Thomas Davis has been shifted to the weakside so he can be used more as a blitzer a role in which he excels, he's making plays in camp.

-Stewart will likely have the bulk of the carries by the end of the year but thinks that it will depend more on what play is called rather than just sticking with one guy. Wiliams will still likely get his carries and team will try to get him more involved on screen passes because of his explosive ability.

-if you had never seen Jake Delhomme throw a ball and had not heard about his Tommy John surgery, you would never know that he ever had anything wrong with him. Looks to be fine.

Thanks to Darren Gannt.

In bad news

Not one of our left defensive ends (Stanley McClover, Charles Johnson, Tyler Brayton) has been able to hold off Jeff Otah who's throwing all comers around like a rag doll. Note, he hasn't lined up against Peppers yet.

Hackett isn't running a lot of z routes or quick ins and outs from the slot which makes me think his knee might have a lingering issue

Jordan Gross on Peppers:
Quote:
eft tackle Jordan Gross, who faces Peppers every day in practice, said Peppers is “bigger, stronger and faster” than he’s ever seen him and fully expects him to rebound from a disappointing season in 2007. “I'll say this with 100 percent confidence, I think he's going to have his best year ever,” said Gross, who has been teammates with Peppers since 2003. “He's better than I've ever seen him. Barring anything unknown, there's no reason he won't go out and set records, I think. He looks really, really good.”

THE YOUNG GUYS
*S Kenny Phillips flattened RB Reuben Droughns on a run up the middle. Only one problem: there's supposed to be limited contact in practice. "Be smart out there, blue," one offensive player yelled to the blue-shirted defensive players after Phillips' hit. I think it was C Shaun O'Hara who did the yelling. Phillips didn't lose any aggressiveness after that, though, because he gave WR Brandon London a little shot as London hauled in a deep ball from Wright down the left sideline. In a real game, Phillips would have lit London up like a Christmas tree. Today, he took a little off as London held onto the ball. Secondary coach Peter Giunta didn't say anything to Phillips but got on Dockery for letting London get a free release off the line

Quote:
If it were up to Kenny Phillips, the Giants wouldn't have any healthy receivers left. This kid is all over the field making plays -- and hits -- even though the guys aren't wearing pads until tonight. He decked Droughns on a run up the middle, sending the RB sprawling in 11-on-11s, and in 7-on-7s he put a big hit on Brandon London on a pass down the sideline, up-ending the receiver. Kudos to London for hanging onto the ball, by the way.

If nothing else, Miami players can hit.

Beason almost lit up Williams yesterday but pulled up and gave him a glorified hug.

Awesome to hear Philips doing well, he was my pick for DROTY

Awesome to hear Philips doing well, he was my pick for DROTY
If you go by stuff from mini camp to today, one can get the sense that he is learning the system very quickly, and has made good ints, and can has great range in making plays. Kirwan was on Sirius radio live at our camp, and was raving about the range he saw from KP. Also, as you said, KP is lighting people up as well.

The issue was his potential, and if a team can tap it because he was productive for 1 year, and played alot in the box. But we are playing him at FS, and his job is to hit people, knock down passes, and get ints. And in this role for us, he is doing a very good job in practices thus far.

Kirwan then RAVING about Kenny Phillips. Is blown away by his range. Tyree agreed. They were almost giggling about it.


-about D:

Again mentioned Kenny Phillips: Will be in starting lineup soon. (Says probably will replace James Butler.) He can make it look like the sideline is available to the QB, when it isn't. Incredible range.

-Kenny Phillips - not in starting lineup yet, but will be soon. They love his range. Great ability to tease the QB to throw the ball outside, then to use his speed to get to the ball. Phillips is a definite upgrade. Phillips has no problem with the mental aspect.


-On Kenny Phillips

Kirwan raving about him AGAIN.

Reese: He can get over the top really quick. Range. Size. Smart. They expect him to be a really good football player for them, for a long time. They really like him.

With the Giants passrush, that pass defense is going to be a force to be reckoned with.

But it's still the NFC East and their are some elite backs in Portis and Westbrook that are hard to account for because they create such a mismatch against both lbs and safetys.

That's true, but then again this is the NFC east. While one team may have a edge there, it evens out somewhere else at another position. That's usually why we can beat each other up year after year.

*If you're an NFL receiver and you're reading this, well, you really should be doing something cooler. But if you are reading this, do yourself a favor and keep an eye on Phillips if and when you play against him in the future. He seems to always be in a position to put his helmet through somebody's torso. Tonight, it was Moss who nearly got Jack Tatumed. But after laying a few hits this morning and being reprimanded, Phillips pulled up and put his hands up on this one.

Why move Davis from SLB to WLB when he was such a force?

I knew Phillips was underdrafted. All that BS about his 40, he plays 12-15 yards off of the ball. I thought the Texans should have scooped him up to help solidify their secondary.

so he can utilize his speed and be on the field more. plus we're getting more aggresive on defense and will be blitzing more, davis is a better blitzer than diggs and johnson. this is where he should been when he first made the move from safety to LB imo

I was screaming for Phillips before the draft. Reports out of camp are that Clinton Hart is really clicking with Weddle, but I think a Weddle/Phillips safety tandem would be pretty bitchin.

Here's hoping Antoine Cason beasts it up from the nickel.

The Panthers wan't more speed on the weakside. Thomas Davis played up on the line and blitzed a lot at georgia so playing on the same side as julius peppers with 4.54 speed in a 250 pound linebacker is insane to have that screaming off the edge.

The new philosophy the Panthers are introducing will involve a lot more blitzing and Fox will want to bring it with Davis.
