Raiders | T. Brown adds criticism to Walsh's offense

Thu, 28 Sep 2006 20:30:43 -0700

Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports former Oakland Raiders WR Tim Brown commented on the offense being run by Raiders offensive coordinator Tom Walsh. Brown said, "You just can't run that offense in the NFL anymore. They're calling timeouts, spending most of their timeouts before 10 minutes is up in the second quarter. They're getting delay penalties, getting to the line of scrimmage late, because those plays are 20 words long. I know that it was a horrible offense way back when. We just had to make plays and make things happen way back when. Being that the 40-second clock has come into play, and a lot of other rules have come into play since he was (last) in the league, I knew that would be a tough adjustment for him. Even zone blitzes and things of that nature. That makes that offense very tough. It was very one-dimensional, trying to audible was very difficult." WR Jerry Porter was critical of the team's offense during the offseason. Porter was quoted as saying, "I wanted [Detroit Lions offensive coordinator] Mike Martz as my coach and a real offense that's proven in today's NFL. Not something dusted off from a bed and breakfast in God knows where."

Raiders | T. Brown says team lacks a leader

Mon, 25 Sep 2006 20:57:37 -0700

Steve Corkran, of the Contra Costa Times, reports former Oakland Raiders WR Tim Brown said during an interview with the Los Angeles Times the team is lacking a leader in the locker room. Brown added, "I was on some bad teams there, but we were never devoid of leadership. Be it me, be it [RB] Marcus Allen back in the day, be it [DL] Howie Long, be it whomever. We were never devoid of leadership. And, right now the locker room is barren. I never played with [DL] Warren Sapp, and I'm not necessarily hearing bad things about Warren Sapp, but I'm not hearing `He's our guy' or `He's our leader.' I'm not hearing that about anybody on the offensive line, I'm not hearing that about anyone whatsoever." Sapp said during training camp he assumed a leadership role with the team and his teammates feel comfortable seeking his guidance.

NFL | Madden not guaranteed Hall of Fame bust

Fri, 03 Feb 2006 19:07:46 -0800

Mark Purdy, of the San Jose Mercury News, reports former Oakland Raiders head coach and current broadcaster John Madden is not a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame for several reasons. Some voters feel his ten seasons as head coach aren't long enough or feel he should have won more than one Super Bowl during that time-span. Former Raiders WR Tim Brown didn't help Madden's chances when he said, "I spent a long time in Raiderland and when you talk to the old guys who played under Madden, they say, `Look, if not for this guy, maybe we win three or four Super Bowls.' They actually think he may have hindered them."
