In a little bit of breaking news since yesterday, Chaz Schilens will actually get the start tomorrow, starting in place of Ronald Curry. Schilens was the Raiders final pick, in the seventh round, of this past April's draft. They took Curry with their seventh round draft pick, seven years ago.
Cable also said that receivers will be left in for longer stretches and there won't be as much shuffling them in and out. This will hopefully get some consistency at the receiver spot, let Russell become familiar with who's doing what in the passing game and give our passing game (that ranks last in the NFL) a bit of a jump start.
