Oakland Raiders 2015 Training Camp Update: Day 6


Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Day 6 of practices in Napa brought another day of training camp, another day of full pads and another day of working toward a successful season. Still nothing from rookie Clive Walford, third year player Stacy McGee (PUP List) or veteran Rod Streater, who have yet to practice this training camp. Roy Helu and Michael Dyer both missed practice, which let Trent Richardson get plenty of reps in his first practice this training camp. Menelik Watson missed his first practice as well. All but McGee and Streater were working on the side with the training staff.

DJ Hayden has best day so far

While DJ did have a pass break up and an interception, it’s not as good as it sounds. The break up appears legit, but the interception was not. The play looked like it was a quick slant, rub play to Amari Cooper. But the rub hit Amari, not just knocking him off the route, but he actually stopped on the route giving Hayden a free INT. The play must have been a timing play, because the ball was thrown quickly and it goes right to DJ, since Amari got knocked off his route by the defender.

You can see the headline drawing play for yourself on Raiders.com, it is the last play of the video.

Defense wins the Day

I read a lot of people saying the defense got the best of the offense, but Carr zipped a nice ball to Rivera for a TD on that same video. T-Rich was said to have ripped off a few good runs as well. Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave held a press conference after practice and thought the offense gave up the ball to the defense too much. He said the offense didn’t play winning football and needs to learn from it and do better.

Guys are making plays and continue to work hard, in the new fast paced practices that this new staff has implemented. Coach Del Rio is still not showing any concern about the injured players being out for an extended amount of time. The Raiders have an unpadded padded practice session on Friday at 10:30am.
