    Raiders | To Practice against the Texans - from www.KFFL.com
    Thu, 2 Jun 2005 18:57:10 -0700

    John Czarnecki, of FoxSports.com, reports the Oakland Raiders are going to spend three days in Houston training against the Houston Texans prior to their preseason game there Saturday, August 20.

    Good to hear. I'm glad that Dunta and Phillip will get some good training against the best reciever in the NFL.

    I wonder if Collins will be able to figure out what players are on the Texans and what players are on the Raiders this time?

    Should be fun.

    I'm sure Mr. Davis will come and be fodder for the boards. He's certainly a colorful character.

    And the Raiders should be good competition even in a controlled environment.

    don't underestimate Kerry Collins, he throws one of the best deep balls in the league.

    I downright shocked I tell you, that Al can pry himself away from Jerry and the 'boys to scrimmage with another team. Are the Raidahs even playing Dallas this pre-season?

    Atleast Dunta and PB will get a work out against Moss and Porter. Are the raiders still playing a 3-4 or did they go back to a 4-3?

    Ya he has great last year, Look like a d*** *****. Didnt he like fumble once and someone ran it back to the house and like 2 INT. I am sure Moss will help some but lets just hope he keeps his pants on. Porter at 6'2 220 and Moss at 6'4 210 will give PB and Drob some problems but hopfully Drob can stick Moss. Offensively we should control them there terrible on D (No Napleon Harris) and according to Kris Jenkins "Sapp is fat and sloopy heck even his soul is sloopy." How is your soul sloopy? If DD cant run the ball I call for A NEW RB ASAP! Lets not forget Mr. Jordan (most underrated player) hes big and has a burst what more do you want?

    True its a scrimmage but we dont get to see them in the season (and they wont make the playoffs) so might as well hit em! I dont hate DD as a person he just plain and simply a terrible RB in my judgement. If any team is crappy they blame it on the O-line so I really dont wanna hear any "his line sucks." Some guy on the Bucs board started a topic about whose better Pittman or Davis. I say Pittman and I know ill take alot of heat but hes atleast soild. Pittman had like 950 yds. in 13 games DD had 1200 in 16 games. I think Pittman is better.

    terrible? are you crazy? sure DD isn't barry sanders or emmitt smith, but back to back 1000 yard seasons in your rookie and second year isn't too shabby. Pittman may be a little better at this point, but DD is younger and quicker.

    sorry kid...but DD isn't that bad of a runningback...if you want a bad runningback look up names like troy hambrick...or ron dayne...or oh heck if you want a mediocre RB try kevin barlow...DD may not be portis or tomlinson but he is no slouch...Davis unlike a lot of backs in the league runs hard...he's a little bowling ball out there...if he can stay healthy and not fumble the ball he'll be last years tiki barber...and personally i'm not looking for DD to be an LT type runner...i look at him and i see a shorter version of curtis martin...ya know the new jets guy whose done one thing since he's gotten to the league an that's constantly rush for a 1,000+ yds every season...he's not flashy just gets the job done

    as for the practice game with the raiders...any time you go against another team it's good...you're going full speed not worrying about hurting your own teammates...and yes going against moss and porter is a good thing for d-rob and pb...they'll need a good warm up course to get ready for this season of manning and the dolts
