Hey, how about bringing back Todd Marinovich?

How about Jay Schroeder...?

Marc Wilson...?

Yeah, that's the ticket....

Jim Plunket fit Davis’ mold. Seemingly washed up veteran who just got it done.

Well, that was the problem. Pot head thought he could continue his festivities on the field.

Plunkett and the acquisition of Michael Haynes were the last good decisions Davis made as an owner.

Yeah, but that decision to draft him came ten years before they acquired Plunkett. He was great with the Raiders.

As evidenced by his 4 INT "performance" in the 91 Wild Card game against Kansas City.

The Falcons should have picked up Culpepper. They have an opportunity to make Vick a distant memory. Sign Culpepper for one year to bring Shockley along. What could be better? You have a local kid and UGA QB. Not only can he throw the ball, he’s got wheels as well. It would put many fans in the seats.
Personally, I am not a big Falcons fan but I am a HUGE Georgia fan, I would be watching every game if DJ were playing.

If I’m going to watch a game without the Bengals, its one involving the AFC West.

Any of those games are brutal, and a blast to watch if you don’t have a ‘dog’ in the fight.

You know....as a Raider fan I am disheartened, yet again.

Don't you think they should concentrate on getting the top draft pick signed before this clown???

Sign Jamarcus(sp) NOW!!!!

Have to agree (not about the Bengals part, that is just crazy) that AFC West games are always fun to watch. Even when one of the teams is down the games are usually extremely competitive and you have some great homefield crowds (or scary in the case of Oakland) that add to the experience.

No need to worry, they've got "Joey Ballgame".

GO DAWGS, DJ is a Vick style player (except DJ has class), but may need more NFL experience.
The Falcons have had many chances to pick local Tech and Georgia stars, but avoided picking them, with the idea that it put too much pressure on them. I think that is stupid, but that was Rankin Smith’s idea, and now Arthur Blank is in charge.
UGA is picked third the the Eastern SEC. I don’t think Florida will be able to repeat last year, but I know with Tennessee and Florida it will continue to be tough.

Ah, what the heck, the more the merrier.

Reading today the injury bug is alive and well at Bengals camp. Two guys taken off the practice field on stretchers in the past 30 hours.....yikes!

I always thought Culpepper was a decent quarterback, personally. I couldn’t stand Vick, though. The idea of a running quarterback who can get knocked out at any time by a knee injury is just craziness. I don’t know all the antics of Culpepper off field but they certainly can’t be any worse than Vick who is likely to wind up modeling one of those pretty orange jump suits before long (or should.) I do agree with an earlier poster about Jeff Garcia though. I never could understand why he never got the credit he deserved.

Yeah, I agree it is just that mocking the Ravens is the one thing Steeler and Bengal fans can usually agree on.

Who went down? Nothing serious I hope (and I mean that, never want to see anyone hurt and it is always more fun to beat you guys at full strength so there are no excuses).

Maybe the Raiders can sign him ( Vick ) after he gets out of jail.

Hell, they might even try for Pac Man Jones when he's through with his legal troubles.

Culpeppers antics off the field are equivalent if not worse than Vick's. He once got a "lap dance" from a stripper at a boat party.

Funny, I was born in Oakland (long time ago) and graduated from UCF when it was still FTU & had a 7K student body, so I ought to think of this as some sort of harmonic convergence. But I don’t. As a Raiders fan I have been out in the wilderness too long to still have the faith.

I was living in Tampa when the Tooz was at the University of Tampa.

Those days are gone forever, over a long time ago, oh yeah.

Maybe in some respects it’s a blessing in disguise that I was born after the “good ol’ days” of the team back in the 70’s and early 80’s? When a lot of guys I talk to mention Stabler, Tooz, Plunkett, Branch, George Atkinson, and so on, I have little to add except “boy, that must have kicked ass!” because I wasn’t alive to remember anything before Bo Jackson.

Hopefully we’ll get back to...well at least winning more than two games.

What’s the big deal with a lap dance compared to killing animals for Vick’s demented pleasures?

I never did get the significance of the lap dancing anyway. Is that supposed to be against the law or something?

Take care of that knee Dante. Mr. Davis will be watching.

Not checking the schedule, I hope the Dolphins play them this year (even if it's in Oakland).

I think Culpepper has seen better days. I always thought Moss made Dante look good at MN.
Daunte's not the guy to build a team around, but maybe that's not what the Raiders are looking for right now.

In the late 60s and into the 70s, IMO the Raiders were one of the most exciting teams in pro ball to watch. Wide open offense. George Blanda was amazing coming in late in the game week after week to pull them out. I swear that when this 40+ old man trotted on the field in middle of the 4th quarter it must have psyched out the opposing defenses.

If you ever get a chance to see tapes of some of his 4th quarter exploits, you must do so.
