    The Turds' first-teamers gave up two sacks, had a false start and had to burn a timeout against the Vikes 2nd string defense.

    Galler looked like krap on both running and passing downs. The Turds are now having to keep Lamont Jordan in to help franchise LT Robert Gallery block a 2nd string DE.

    Randy Moss finally caught a pass, against the 2nd stringers.

    Aaron Brooks has now completed passes in TWO consecutive starts. He had one completion in each.

    Janikowski hit a 55-yard field goal, after the offense went three and out.

    The special teams forced a turnover, which was followed by a three and out.

    Doug Gabriel didn't give the ball back to the Vikes after muffing a punt, because he was lucky enough to be close to the sideline.

    All in all a very exciting performance. Here's to hoping the Turds subs come back to win the game so we can hear another week of Turd fans talking about how happy they are with their team.

    I don't know who manufactures the notebooks that Art Shell uses to scribble down notes on all the Turds' mistakes, but I'd buy some stock in that company yesterday.

    Followed by another. But the guy did throw a pretty bomb, so Al will probably reward him with a contract extension. Maybe Walter can be the next Vince Evans. :icon_rofl:

    Does the prophet and the chosen one accept human (or in some raider cases) neanderthal sacrifices?

    Hopefully the Raiders will make Aaron Brooks the starter for the next 5 years.

    Hate to say it, but i think Walter can become a real player in time if they actually worked him with the starters. The guy has a great arm and pretty good accuracy, he just needs to get the speed of the game down, and read defenses better (both of which come with experiance) and he could be a stud with those WRs

    Besides him, i didnt see one thing for the raider fans to get excited about

    I think Shell may pull him after the 6th game if he doesn't do well.

    That would be after the Cards game, and before their game versus the Steelers.

    I have never in my 40+ years of watching NFL and college football seen any QB with a better, more natural throwing motion than Charlie Whitehurst...just a beautiful thing to watch...a pure passer indeed...

    You do realize that Walter threw two picks tonight, right? He had the one nice deep pass for the TD, but he played like crap the rest of the night. That makes two games in a row that he's stunk it up.

    But once again you've proven your stubborness to see a player for what he is. If you decide you like a player, you are just going to keep screaming about how great that player is no matter how badly they perform.:tup:

    Walter Similar to Whitehurst??!?!? :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: Size and arm strength yeah go on.........

    I really couldn't care less about Walter he is a Kerry Collins clone he forces throws that are not there and cannot scramble or throw on the run. Good for his arm strength, let him start in 2007 (which he will most certainly be doing) he will throw 18-20 ints. I know where the ball is going 90% of the time after he holds it for 0.5 seconds. Dude goes through his progressions very slowly and if he isn't given at least 4.5-5 seconds to throw to the intermediate-deep range he is toast. He can get the ball out quickly to outlet receivers but his accuracy hitting receivers in stride or on hooks slants posts etc is not where it needs to be and never will be. I am not doubting he will start in the NFL, he is a guy who will have an 80 QBR and never have a completion percentage over 60%. I'll give you this; he is better than JP Losman :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl:

    I think Walter is doing about as well as a guy who has very little NFL experience can do...IMO the kid has a lot of talent...he just needs to play...he has had two different OC's in his two years now...
    He had a terrific college career and is a talented kid...unfortunately he is on the Raiders...:lol
    He actually was making good progress under Norv who is not a great head coach, but is a hell of a QB coach...
    Walter is the Raiders future at QB and IMO he will be a good one...if they ever get a decent OLine...:lol:

    Its preseason and he is playing with a 2nd string OL and 2nd string WR core, what exactly are you expecting from him??

    Go back and look at rivers last year in the preseason, he didnt put up great numbers, and struggled agaisnt some bad defense, but did you think he was going to be a bust?

    Dont actually look at the numbers, look at the way he was throwing the ball, look at him making his reads, look at way he was talking charge of the offense.

    It seems all youre looking at is the fact that he threw two INTs and he plays for the raiders.

    Walter has the skills to be a big time QB in the NFL and hes starting to show it whether you want to see it or not

    Size, arm strength, college success, field presence. Neither one is much of a scrambler

    I just hope he can handle the speed of the NFL game...I've seen some great college QB's just not able to grasp the speed of the Pro game...I hope he does...his throwing motion is a work of art to watch...:icon_mrgreen:
