    Haven't heard anything about him since Sunday night, and he didn't appear to play the rest of the game after he had his bell rung.

    He's married. Haven't read or heard anything. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play this week though. Depending upon Hunter's status we'll be seeing Washington and perhaps Eli??

    Update: Just saw Hunter placed on IR. I guess Hey-Bey then.

    Yeah, Hunter hurt his shoulder on Ben's overthrow in the endzone. :facepalm:

    Hunter shouldn’t have dove.

    I agree with Ben. Hunter made the same mistake JW did. If he continued his momentum and runs through the catch its a TD.

    Might as well give James Washington another shot. Maybe the Raiders game will be his breakout game... because the Steelers won't be running the ball much. :facepalm:

    If that's AB or JuJu that's a touchdown.

    What does no one being within 10 yards of Hunter have anything to do with him mistakenly diving for a ball he should have run through for an easy 6?

    Because you're exaggerating that's why...You act like it was a pefect pass, It wasn't...He FIRED it over his head...He had to sprint AND dive...Just to have a chance for it...If someone has a video to prove me wrong...I'll stand corrected...Until then

    Yet I wouldn't be surprised if the gameplan was to try and run it 50 times with an unproven backup. One of those "they'll never expect it" situations.

    I love how an almost catch by a matter of an inch or two was..... blatantly over thrown or a horrible pass...... from how many yards away? Ben is used to throwing the ball to someone like AB or JuJu with that 'extra' gear to speed up. Yes it was a missed opportunity, but let's not pretend like it was some horrific throw.... that ball was right on from 36 yards away.

    Actually what he said was he didn't have any idea what Hunter was doing. Some kind of dive. The coach got on Hunter pretty good. They took a long hard look at it and if Hunter would of run a flatter route he would be Ben's number 1 receiver. When asked how he could of made a better throw Ben said he would of thrown it to JUJU 4 times. I'm paraphrasing of course.....

    Washington has a chance to really shine against the trash the raiders are throwing out on the field

    No way Hunter catches that ball if he just runs through it. He really had no shot at it. The ball was badly overthrown.

    Switzer was a full participant in practice Wednesday. He was in the protocol over the weekend, but he can't be cleared until he participates in a practice without symptoms. So basically, it wasn't necessarily a bad sign that he was in the protocol Tuesday because there had been no practice yet.

    Throw seemed to be good. It appears as though Hunter misjudged it. I really do think if he stays upright he runs right into the ball Play starts at 5:32

    We will have to agree to disagree. I thought it was a terrible throw and Hunter had no shot at it. It wasn't like the one to Washington the previous week.
