Soooooo, the Sacramento Bee is reporting that the Oakland Raiders are actually using practice time to practice their touchdown celebrations. Not sure if that actually sunk in, so I’ll repeat it……….The Oakland Raiders are actually using practice time to practice their touchdown celebrations.
So many things come to mind that I don’t know where to start. But before I start my rant, I’ll let you read what JaMarcus Russell and Tom Cable have to say about it.
Here’s Russell’s take:
“Now we do a thing in practice, where guys run to the end zone. Or we make it in the end zone, as far as the offense, (we) congratulate those guys, get used to doing it. The more you get used to it, the more you’ll be better with it on the field, as a team.”
Now Cable’s take:
“I think it’s more planning how you want to do it early in the game. Hopefully we’ll have a little more success with it this week.”
So let me get this straight. The Oakland Raiders are more concerned with being comfortable celebrating touchdowns when it’s obvious that they aren’t comfortable scoring them. (Keep in mind they only have NINE touchdowns this season, fewest in the NFL) But I can’t say I’m surprised. I mean, this is the Raiders we’re talking about. One can only hope that they’ll wheel Al Davis out to be apart of the celebrations!
