    Overreaction. It would be different if this team doesn't get many looks at Charles, but the fact is he plays in our division. Charles starting getting carries in games midway through 2009. That means this team has seen him 6 times. They know how fast he is. Even the new guys saw him in the first game this year.

    To me, this sets a great example for other players that want to give sub par effort in practice. Looks like discipline is returning in Oakland to me.

    OP,


    They are simply getting there moneys worth out of this kid by any means necessary. I dont have a problem with that. And i dont think anyone else in the raider nation has a problem with that. I just wish we could have done the same to jamarcus.

    Good thing it isn't Jamarcus, or you would never get that hot dog...

    If they were performing organized defensive drills it is common for the backup LB to play running back. During the full team practice it was likely Jones that was playing the scout back. Do not get excited about these stories without the full picture.

    McClain must have done a pretty good job.

    How can it not?

    If this lame coaching staff figured this out prior to the Tampa game our season would have gone ten times better

    Maybe DA should have pulled his head out of his @$$ and started McClain at HB. You can't spell "Rolondo McClain, Superbowl MVP" without Rolondo McClain.

    Don't be surprised if you see a "Ro Knows" Nike commercial tomorrow.

    Much much less than the number of reasons McClain has to not give a f*ck.
