JaMarcus Goes To Vegas

No one should be surprised that JaMarcus missed the final team meeting only to check in at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas today. Going on a tip from a commenter, local columnist Cam Inman called the Palms and the front desk was able to confirm he was staying there.

A few months ago, going information I received from a friend of a friend, who just so happens to be a club promoter in the bay area, I reported JaMarcus was frequently seen at clubs for rap shows and that he drank heavily while there.

Like it or not JaMarcus has a ton of talent that he has flushed down the toilet. He isn't a dumb guy, meaning he doesn't have some type of handicap that prevents him from progressing. He just isn't putting in the type of work required to be a decent NFL Quarterback.

For JaMarcus it just heart and desire. He doesn't care about being a good quarterback or he doesn't think he needs to. He got his money.

As far as this situation goes. JaMarcus was excused by the team on Monday from the final team meeting. Is it possible those personal reasons were handled yesterday and he flew to Las Vegas this morning for the start of a short vacation? Sure it is.

The problem is that of timing for JaMarcus. He is in no position to be in Vegas. He could be at home with a six-pack, tub of lard and a spoon and not get the same heat, even though both are equally detrimental to his quarterbacking skill.

If JaMarcus was making all the team meetings and he was going today to watch film and hit the cardio machine, don't you think he might get a little more slack from Raider Nation? Of course.

When it comes down to it, JaMarcus just isn't getting it and you have to wonder if this news might sink into Al Davis mind a bit. Consider the Raiders record when JaMarcus wasn't the starter and give Cable a little more time to turn thing around.

It wouldn't even require him to give up on the Big Duece, as Tom Cable says he still thinks a lot of JaMarcus.

Things are never boring in Raiderland. As is always the case, Al Davis wont yield the power to make it stop.

Oakland Raiders Swing for the Fences in 2016 NFL Draft

[embed align="center"]http://gty.im/153039819[/embed] These aren't your daddy's Oakland Raiders or even your younger self's Raiders. If anything, these are your newborn's Raiders or your puppy's Raiders. These are the Raiders we've never seen before. Indicative of the freshness of the franchise was their 2016 NFL Draft. No longer slave to a high draft pick and desperate needs, the theme of the draft for the Raiders was upside. It's as if general manager Reggie McKenzie got so used to hitting his draft picks out of the park that he started swinging for the fences. We'll have to wait a couple of years before we know if he struck out or if he'll continue his Ruthian ways. First, McKenzie boldly went with a safety at No. 14 overall. Kyle Joseph is coming off a torn ACL and fills a major need, but safety isn't a premium position. Only a handful of safeties have been drafted in the first 14 picks in the last 15 years and include names like Ea

Looking Forward: Raiders 2012 Free Agents

Khalif Barnes - Weakest link on the offensive line with youth behind him. Raiders will look for for other options. It's not as if there aren't a dozen Khalif's on the street each year. Darryl Blackstock - Was a Chuck Bresnahan guy, but found a home on special teams. Would have to make the team as a reserve LB and special teams guy next training camp. Wouldn't be surprised to see him back as a camp body or gone entirely. Kyle Boller - Hue didn't have enough confidence to turn to Boller. Expect the Raiders to look elsewhere for a backup to Carson Palmer. Jerome Boyd - Was nothing more than a reserve and special teams player. Some good moments and some very bad ones. Camp body again and fate will depend on the defensive coordinator. Tyvon Branch - About the only consistent producer in the secondary. Raiders will want to bring him back. Desmond Bryant - He's been great in limited action and can play inside and out. Key reserve. Michael Bush - He'll find a home a
