Receiving Corps Woes

Heading into week 12 the Raiders’ receiving corps is looking pretty shaky as far as injuries go. Denarius Moore (foot), Jacoby Ford (foot), and Darius Heyward-Bey (concussion) are all likely to miss this Sundays showdown vs. the smoking hot Chicago Bears who are coming off a 5 win streak. That leaves a starting crew of Louis Murphy, Chaz Schilens, and Houshmandzadeh, with little to no depth behind them. Lucky for us Bush is a maniac and should have no problem carving (er.. plowing) through the Chicago D-Line. And don’t ever forget Reece. He’s capable of some fine rushing as well as possessing the ability to split out at wide receiver. The man is truly gifted. And we’ll also see a little bit of Cartwright too since Taiwan Jones is also out with a hamstring injury. Old Rock ain’t what he used to be but the man is crafty. I see a couple well designed trick plays coming on Sunday with him in the backfield. I really hope Hue decides to rest these guys to 100% so that we have them for Green Bay because we’ll need them.  Take a look at this awesome picture I found of Hue Jackson and Jacoby Ford before the Patriots game (I can’t post it here due to copyrights and NFL licensing): Ford/Jackson Next up:  Kyle Orton to the Chiefs.  Wtf?
