    And Randy Moss had to do a penalty lap.....for being the only receiver to NOT catch the ball in practice which resulted in an INT.

    He got worked by Fabian Washington.

    A 5' 10" CB worked 6' 4" Randy Moss! :lol:

    Cromartie will wind up being a better CB than Fabian and completely shutdown the guy. :icon_mrgreen:

    RAIDERS NOTEBOOK
    Brooks coming into his own at quarterback
    - Bruce Adams, Chronicle Staff Writer
    Wednesday, August 2, 2006


    Coach Art Shell says quarterback Aaron Brooks is showing signs that he's beginning to master the job.

    "Aaron is taking big strides," Shell said after Tuesday morning's practice at training camp in Napa. "The light bulb is going off. He's saying 'Oh, OK.' He understands what we're doing."

    Brooks, signed as a free agent from the Saints this year, will start Sunday's exhibition against the Eagles in the Hall of Fame game, but that's about as far as Shell will go in officially giving the job to Brooks.

    "I don't want to lock anything in," he said, although Brooks is the heir apparent to Kerry Collins over Andrew Walter, No. 2 on the depth chart.

    Brooks refused interviews after practice.

    Shell plans on giving his quarterback freedom to call some plays -- and most certainly during 2-minute drills and no-huddle situations.

    Shell acknowledged that it can be difficult for a quarterback in his first year with a team.

    "You can't just come in and say, 'I'm the leader because I'm the quarterback,' " Shell said. "It doesn't work that way. ... You have to do your job."

    Shell says he pays no heed to anything he may have heard about Brooks, who had a bad season with the Saints last year.

    "I don't pay attention to what somebody else says about a guy," he said. "What you present to me is what I'm going to see. It's been all good so far."

    Walking wounded: A number of players battling a series of minor bumps, bruises and tweaks either missed practice or were limited.

    They included linebacker Kirk Morrison, center Adam Treu, safety Stuart Schweigert, tight end Courtney Anderson and wide receiver Ronald Curry.

    Huddle up: The Raiders will use a different huddle this year, going with a scheme used by the Falcons when Shell was an assistant there in 1997-2000.

    The offense lines up in a U, with the quarterback at the open end and everyone bunched together and angled toward him.

    "Normally a quarterback in a conventional huddle, guys are to his side and guys are around," Shell said. "In this thing, they're looking right at him and there's a tunnel in there, a funnel for crowd noise. ... They can see what he's saying and they can hear what he's saying."
