Yesterday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced they would be inducting 20 players in their 2020 Centennial class. Today another Raiders great has passed away. The Raider Nation mourns the passing of legendary wide receiver Cliff Branch.The reason the Centennial class announcement is significant is because among them would be ten Senior era players inducted. No player in NFL history is more worthy of being among those ten players than Cliff Branch. He has been eligible for 30 years and somehow the player who upon his retirement was the NFL’s all time leading playoff receiver has not gotten the call. He also was on all three Raiders Super Bowl teams.Should he get the call he has deserved for 30 years, he would be just the latest long deserving Raiders great to be enshrined the year after their death. Ken Stabler passed away in 2015 and a year later he was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame by the Senior committee. And honor the modern era voting committee couldn’t see fit to do.Losing Cliff Branch is truly tragic. He was a true Raiders great. He was a true NFL great. And a truly great human being. Someone I have had the great honor to speak with on multiple occasions. He deserved to take that stage and accept his bust. He will neverget that chance. It makes me sad and angry.Follow @LeviDamien ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — After taking a career-high seven sacks behind a decimated Oakland Raiders offensive line, Derek Carr got a phone call from someone who knows just what that’s like to being repeatedly hit by bruising NFL defensive linemen.Big brother David, who was sacked an NFL-record 76 times in 2002, offered some words of consolation.“It’s not that bad,” Derek Carr said Wednesday. “It’s not that bad Foster Moreau Oakland Raiders Jersey , my guys are awesome. The thing about him is there were times where they would have the right guys blocked, they just physically couldn’t do it. At least our guys fight, we have that going for us. He did mess with me a little bit, but no, it’s not like, ‘Oh man, how do you deal with this or that?’ It’s not like that at all.”The situation in Oakland definitely isn’t on the level it was for the expansion Houston Texans, but it’s been a major drop-off from the solid protection Carr earned for most of his first four seasons.Carr has already been sacked 24 times halfway through the season for the Raiders (1-7), a mark he has topped only once in an entire season in his first four seasons. His sack rate has doubled from 3.9 percent of pass plays his first four years — lowest in the NFL among players with more than 25 starts during that span —to 7.8 percent this year and he’s facing pressure at a much higher rate than he has in the past.“It’s hard, there’s sometimes it’s gotten that way and it’s not a knock on those guys,” Carr said. “They’re trying their tail off. We have some young guys trying to play Foster Moreau Oakland Raiders Jersey , we have our veteran guys who dominate and they’re great players, but we have some young guys that are just getting their feet wet against the best players in the world.“It’s not easy for them. For me, I’ve always been one, I try to make it seven-on-seven as much as you can. There’s never a time where you’re ever looking down, you just try and feel things, move and make throws. You try and do it and as it’s happening you don’t notice it until you turn the film on like, ‘Oh, we can maybe adjust this or adjust that’ kind of a thing.”Injuries on the line have played a big role with right tackle Donald Penn being placed on injured reserve following a Week 4 win against Cleveland. Rookie Brendan Parker has struggled since replacing Penn and had to be pulled for part of the game last week against the 49ers.Rookie left tackle Kolton Miller also hurt his knee in that game against the Browns and has been in and out of the lineup. He has been hampered even when he has played and came out against the 49ers because the injury got too bad. The Raiders averaged more than 11 yards a play in the first six plays against San Francisco before the offense sputtered after Miller first got hurt.The situation at left guard also hasn’t been good with Kelechi Osemele missing time with a knee injury and backup Jon Feliciano bothered by injured ribs.The decimated line has hampered the play-calling and Carr did not complete a single pass more than 10 yards downfield in losses to Seattle and San Francisco the past three games. He was sacked 13 times combined in those games.“No doubt it affects him,” coach Jon Gruden said. “It affects any quarterback. … I’m not going to make any excuses. I think Derek is doing some good things. It does make things difficult when you have the amount of injuries that we have had.”NOTES: Miller practiced with a brace on his right knee. … DT Eddie Vanderdoes (knee) could return for the game against Arizona on Nov. 18. … DT Justin Ellis (foot) could return to practice next week.
