It’s been a brutal week in California

In northern California, Butte County continues to deal with the Camp Fire, which destroyed the town of Paradise, and firefighters continue to try and contain.The fire has impacted people across the state, including those connected to the San Francisco 49ers. The team’s assistant strength coach Shane Wallen saw his family’s home burned down in Paradise, and the mother of beat writer Matt Maiocco lost her home as well. Additionally, 49ers Hub writer Jay Moore and his family lost their home and all their possessions.The 49ers organization is stepping up amidst the devastation. The team named the North Valley Community Foundation as the recipient of proceeds from it’s 50/50 Raffle during tonight’s Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants. The 50/50 raffle has half the net proceeds for the game-day raffle go to the winning ticket-holder and half the net proceeds go to a different charity each week. The 49ers announced they will provide a dollar for dollar match for the contributions raised by fans during the game.Additionally, six players will donate autographed, game-worn jerseys from tonight’s game to be auctioned off. When the link to bid is live, I’ll drop it in here.The 49ers are conducting an internal employee collection drive for essential items to support the community, and Womens Tress Way Jersey , “will continue to monitor the situation in Butte County and surrounding areas during this devastating time, and are prepared to take further action as more specific needs on the ground emerge.”Finally, the 49ers also invited out the Paradise High School football team for tonight’s game. Many of the players lost their homes in the fires, and were forced to forfeit their playoff game last week.The team said these are “initial plans,” so I imagine there will be more coming from the organization in the days and weeks ahead. Personally, I would love to see all the owners of California major league sports teams making donations independent of these kinds of things. What the 49ers are doing tonight is important and will raise much needed money, but considering the kind of wealth in California, particularly in Silicon Valley, we need to see more people stepping up to help these devastated communities. The Oakland Raiders waived Bruce Irvin on Saturday after the team's leading pass rusher had his playing time reduced significantly in recent weeks.Irvin played just nine snaps in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. He will be subject to waivers and will be owed about $3.8 million for the rest of the season if he isn't claimed next week."We would like to thank Bruce Irvin for his years of service to the Oakland Raiders and we wish him the best," general manager Reggie McKenzie said.Oakland came into the year banking on Irvin and Khalil Mack to serve as bookend pass rushers anchoring the defense. Mack was traded a week before the season to Chicago for a package of draft picks following a lengthy contract holdout, and now Irvin is gone too.Irvin thanked the Raiders organization for his time in Oakland."I will always cherish my experience with the Oakland Raiders Youth Weston Richburg Jersey ," he said on his Twitter feed. "As the seasons change, so do our roles and I look forward to continuing my journey with the NFL!"The Raiders (1-7) rank last in the NFL with just seven sacks and have a league-worst 35 quarterback pressures, according to SportRadar. The next worst team is Tennessee with 59.The 31-year-old Irvin has three of the sacks and five of the pressures but has had little impact on a defense that is on pace to be one of the worst ever. Irvin has just six tackles despite an $8 million salary.Oakland is allowing 6.76 yards per play, the worst by any team through eight games since the 1970 merger. The Raiders have allowed the second-most points as a franchise through eight games (252), are tied for the second-fewest takeaways (six) and have the fewest sacks (seven). Oakland also has allowed opponents to have a 113.9 passer rating, a mark that only one team ever has been worse than over a full season.Irvin played just 24 snaps in Week 8 against Indianapolis and then just nine against the 49ers. Irvin's six games with his fewest snap counts since joining the Raiders in 2016 have come this year. Irvin had one tackle, no sacks and no pressures his final three games.Coach Jon Gruden attributed the lack of playing time to Irvin not being part of the base defense against the 49ers."We weren't in our nickel defense very much," Gruden said Friday. "Remember we're a 4-3 team, we're not a 3-4. So in the base defense, sometimes he doesn't fit the role that we need done. No disrespect to Bruce. He's an edge rusher. We haven't had a lead. We haven't had the opposition behind in the chains a lot. So his role has been reduced. I know he's frustrated. I'm frustrated. We'll try to solve that as soon as possible. He's a good player. He's a good player."Irvin was on the field for just seven of the team's 23 snaps in nickel formation with his other two plays coming in goal-line defense.Irvin had 15 sacks his first two seasons with the Raiders. Irvin's 11 forced fumbles since the start of the 2016 season are the most in the NFL in that span.The Raiders have now cut two of the players picked as captain this season having already released linebacker Derrick Johnson last month.
