    Raiders linebacker Greg Ellis had some harsh words for his teammates following Saturday's blowout against the Saints. "Guys, you can't stay out all night, can't expect to come in here and just turn it on," Ellis said after the game. "This isn't high school or college football. This is the best of the best in the NFL. So you've got to do those small things that you maybe didn't have to do in college." The Raiders' first-team defense played through the third quarter and was responsible for most of the 536 total yards surrendered, including a galling 232 yards on the ground.

    He better pace himself on this 'calling out' plan or he'll lose his voice by mid season.

    i disagree i like that he is calling these guys out ot be responsible. he is a vetern that has been on better teams then this maybe he can add his leadership and turn the defense around some

    my poitn is that a veteran on the team should be saying this, not a new guy on the roster
    but you're right, if he wants to step up and be leader, then good for him

    Not many guys have stayed in Oakland for long....

    Honestly, I'm glad he's getting vocal about it. It was starting to feel as if they're content with losing.
