Raiders wide receiver Louis Murphy was the Chronicle Conversation with host Greg Papa on Monday's edition of Chronicle Live.
Louis Murphy is going to be our -- conversation subject tonight he joins his drama. 1220 harbor bay parkway the Raiders -- a facility in Allen made a soloist first of all congratulations on the blocking and we saw Zach Miller jump but in the black hole Darrius Heyward-Bey jump in the black hole did you get up off the ground to go jump -- the black hole after that life together. This addition there. Yeah it. I actually actually. Got about Brewers and actually cause in there is common out of a black hole in house -- -- -- that play. And you actually went down the third time to take me through the play the play action the fake stretch to Fargas is what made the play work because Jeremiah Trotter. The middle linebacker admitted that he was slow to react to -- he bit on the play action and that got sacked wide open but what kind of route where you -- running where Rio when Zach Miller caught the football. Are actually had to come back grow in I saw Zach -- all assault was -- catch the ball and two guys kind of felt awful -- And I was like man and also with the safety -- you know by Gilmore horse and I go and maybe his blog not exactly make it to the house. And just what I tried to do manage anything help the team win. In other than either of the first one you completely lit up the strong safety quit my dilemma you just knocked him back. But the impressive part was going to get the second guy now and Zach was a little faster maybe Percy -- and like you could probably wouldn't had to make the second block legit. Yeah I probably wouldn't have to make you may have half. But -- is that made a great playing he just kept going mound I'm so glad that we came out with a victory manages. Amuses overwhelming. That's so you went and got the second guy which is out Ellis Hobbs which was just incredible so how much distance we you're watching -- back in the film with the team today they must've been hoot and Holler and how much distance was there between the first block on court and Michael and the second block on Ellis out if you had a long run a long way to get the second -- -- Is all military is pretty good -- and -- -- 2030 yards in between us and I had to go catch up. Went on. Man I didn't yet you know Buddy Ryan. You know going get it made his last block you know I saw that -- -- score silly not to give them all phenomenon in this. You know -- as I got into the end zone. And even after the second block on Ellis side you wouldn't got a piece of the lineman Darren Howard embraced and I'm not sure if you -- soured or if he blocked due I think he was a little -- that he had to run back. Ninety yards all the way to the goal it. -- thinking I think he got a better. You get to he got a best of me when and how this. -- -- need to make the tackle even you know on just don't want you know give -- body between me and is that you not. Fedayeen do beginning you know so. You know blows -- away now determined to make sure that as -- -- today is also moves that whoever was in the way I was determined to make sure it get them out of the way. Now we're all joking about it but that was a tremendous individual effort one of the greatest exhibitions of blocking we ever seen from a wide receiver now did you do that much -- -- -- kidding about. Percy carbon being faster but did you do -- much for coach Meyer of Florida and make downfield blocks like that a couple on one play. Yeah yeah me actually -- -- a couple of times where. Back influence you know on back in school and you know we have some running backs elusive running back to break free Chris Rainey Percy Hartman on movie. Emanuel -- The medical even Tebow you know -- over time you know wins mean when has been breaks it come on I've been downfield blocking. You know we stressed that a lot of Florida and we stress and lie here with -- rating you know make sure we turn around and feeling didn't get extra block him because. You know when we catch the ball we have a you know saying -- where you know we give the ball -- us in the please just starting you know so much more things can happen. And in a Philly knows it is more plays that can happen you know if we're she would block now fail. So -- defeated -- you know just out the team out you know when it went -- I cannot -- have a catch him I'm surprised I'm -- -- interview. You know went on I'm just glad he's got the team win. I'm not gonna ask you about the ball went through your hands and popped up in the air and Asante Samuel picked just picked up. But I do want to ask you about the later confrontation with a son plays Samuel because you've been a great agitator. As a rookie and and you you guys one at a little bit Mike Mitchell and training camp your own teammate but and we've seen -- challenge show me your opponents and I thought I was very clever what you do with a Sante Samuel. In the game a little bit later round where you baited him into into a personal foul penalty and he's a he's a veteran guy averaging got them to lose his cool there -- a little bit Lewis. We have now on -- by watching film on a lot of DB's and receivers in the league or allotted TV's on let me -- block you know -- -- block on -- cut into the ground in. The next play come back and block coming in and block me do -- it's just keep blocking -- do go hard every play. You noting cunning and they do have a tendency known not to play as hard and -- the -- is arsenal's all of was really was -- Mean besides he got into the rule -- blocking them and in Nottingham to whistle. I just kept blocking me I'm -- got frustrated and and I -- I -- led to whistle was -- you know on a winning -- our team especially in Arizona fifteen -- Germany. So they have enough they happen to work out beyond. On our behalf but you know I'm glad I did get a fifteen are doing because I was blocking them I think -- Sodom and I didn't whistle had blown. -- you know. As part of the game. Yeah from two to jump a little bit about your rookie year how you would assess it yet again a terrific training camp but he had a great opening night against San Diego -- you should've scored two touchdowns I don't know how they overturn the one. But right before halftime but you and I've talked about that but. But I've I've seen your game kind of go backwards a little bit after that out caught. In Houston where he got job done that call you clearly dragged the back foot in the league apologized to the Raiders. But I saw you kind of lose it a little bit the next series he dropped three in a row and you've had more drops lately he had one go for your hand yesterday. Was so how would you assess your season right now is the NFL little bit tougher than you thought it would be initially. It is this is I mean. Honestly didn't do I can't say you know for me in a competitive you know while I mean and I love to compete. You know I mean I give credit to an affinity really it is really tough and his injury and harmless those catches have been catches that I I could have me you know. I'm I should have made those catches I just have caught a case of a -- -- I don't know what it was single and on but on. I mean yet in the fellows I mean is is rough out there man went on those plays that I've been dropping mass Wilson made those and I've been -- hard. Pitched Arnold myself in Nomar because his -- being on me and I am on myself. So I mean you know can't finish tomorrow as the -- the picture. You know on and one -- of this told me in on the seasons like a roller coaster year you know ups and downs ups and downs. But you know you never get too high you never get to know make sure you stay in the middle of the roller -- you know basically you know. Oh my god hi how lol you know -- know wins you take the wins with the wings take the loss of the laws which he never. You know dwell on either way you know make sure you stay in the -- of us -- pretty much assess my season so far. Today. I mean of the great you know touchdown pass against San Diego either highs and -- back against Houston after he drops and -- and and how the job against Philly. You know on my means that I you know Monday Night Football scored a touchdown of the game when it's astounding. You know almost you know how many turned the tables which in the game where and Asante had an obsession that went right in my hands. You know saw me I can't get too down giving you two are gonna stay right in the middle nicotine and keep going keep working. -- -- thank you for your time congratulations on -- blocking exhibition that was terrific yesterday. Aren't they make up.
