Raiders of Unusual Size

You know it's almost time for Tackle Football here in America when you start reading stories like this one:

Tackles Mario Henderson and Langston Walker: These are your starters on Day One in Napa for an offensive line that Yahoo! Sports recently called the worst in the league.


Walker is back for another stint, and the Cal product has dropped some weight and is down to 360 pounds. He looked fresh at minicamp and quickly moved into the lineup, dispatching Khalif Barnes to get some work at guard. Walker's emergence could also signal a lot more power blocking under new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, in addition to the zone blocking that Cable favored.

Power Blocking! Yee Haw! Let's play some football!

Ah, yes, it's the Raiders pre-season. The best time of all!
