  1. Random Raider Stuff

    Just prior to the draft there was a lot of interest in Kyler Murray some pondering the thought of the Raiders moving up to get him. I'm sure he's a gamer and can really play football however, I said he's too small at his noted height of 5' 10". Well, this just came up. In a group picture he's standing next to a guy known to be 5' 9" and Kyler appears smaller. Cold he have been wearing elevator shoes during height measurements at the combine? There are arguments for and against. See the link below. I was going to place this in the draft recap section but chose here instead. http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/this-photo-of-kyler-murray-led-to-more-speculation-about-his-height/ar-AABAgJR?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout
  2. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    We didn't get a linebacker which we needed and there were some good ones. Hopefully in the second or third round.

    You mean like ticket brokers? I'm sure some of the casinos have purchased blocks of tickets. Some of this info may be made public. 10k tickets for the use of the Raiders family and friends. When I got my season tickets in Los Angeles I was told they always keep some for individuals, family, friends etc. They did have two for me on the 20 yard line 17 rows up. I met someone who knew someone. Nice of them. Many of those tickets they hold will be available on game day for walk up fans or purchase a few days in advance of game day.

    FYI: I emailed LV Stadium Service last week to check on my final PSL payment and when it is due. March 1st. 2020 by the way. Heavy financial burden to say the least. I followed up with the following email: I asked How many PSL's have you sold? How many seats will be made available for individual games or walk up buyers? Those seats that are available, are they going to be on each level. Are my seats on the Raiders side? Here is there limited response: "We have crossed over 40,000 PSLs sold. We do not know what inventory will look like for individual games/walk ups. Yes, your seats are on the ‘home’ side."
  5. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Carr is a good QB and he ain't gonna get traded. He thought he was invulnerable before the injury but after the broken leg he wasn't himself. Then along comes Gruden with a huge play book that takes time to absorb. They had him doing quick check downs getting the ball out asap. I think that was for two reasons; he still hadn't master the play book and how strong was his leg. After a point in the season, I seem to recall the 4th game (at my age what can I recall) he seems to either got a grip on the play book or got his mojo back. I don't want him going anywhere. Wait......was Carr's contract extended during the Gruden watch? Last year? That should tell everything.
  6. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I've been reading these pro Murray posts and I'm not in agreement. This is lying time in the NFL. I believe Gruden is doing two things. He is setting in action a smoke screen but would like to make a trade to get another first round pick if possible. I mean he could get a first and a second, maybe more to move down 10 spots. No matter what people say about Murray he's 5'10" and that may be a lie. They do that when you're short and that's what he is. He won't be able to see over the line. They'll have to set up passing lanes for him; let him run and... he will. He'll get pulverized. I don't want to get in a debate over how Murray will succeed but start naming short QB's that have any lengthy success. Flutie....ooohh, I just did a google search to get proper spelling for Manziel and they have him at 6'. He was a great NFL QB. I know, there's Russell Wilson but I'm not buying into Raiders at #4. Murray will probably go in the top 10 but let him go somewhere else.
  7. Raiders sign LB Brandon Marshall

    I don't know why we would want Kyler Murray. 5'10" and considering he's so short that measurement may be a stretch....like they don't lie about height. 9.5" hands. I'm not the least bit impressed. Remember, the draft is a crap shoot.
  8. I haven't had the opportunity to read all the posts on the trade for AB but wonder could this be an early result of the future attractiveness of playing for the Raiders in Vegas? I mean we got him for nothing. Browns had to give up a 1st and 3rd plus a player for OBJ. Someone will say that's the Browns but I think it could be more than that.

    I couldn't find a decent spot to do this other than here and I may be late at that. Regarding cap space; the Raiders are 5th among NFL teams and I mean 5th from the team with the highest cap space. We have $72M. Not a bad place to be.
  10. Official: Raiders to play 2019 season in Oakland

    You passed through an industrial and a business section. I should talk; I haven't been back to Oakland in 15 years (Oakland HS reunion) and quite a while before that. They have some nice sections or at least they used to. Oakland Hills; Redwood and Sequoia Parks. I spent a lot of time up there.
  11. Rumor: Raiders Considering drafting Haskins or Murray

    I believe there is truth to what you said. He cleaned house what......five years ago. Carr was gun shy for the use of a better term after he broke his leg then he struggled with a new play book. He finally, in my opinion got his mojo back last year. I feel he can be a first line QB for the Raiders. Remember, Coaches and GM's do serious lying this time of the year. I guarantee the draft will be exciting this year. Four pics in the top 35......or 36?

    Oh look who just got it. We know what the NFL is all about. There's a lot of positive happening with this move and you're dwelling on the negative. Sour grapes dude.
  13. Las Vegas Stadium News

    That was very cool. Thanks for the link. I'm getting excited. Am I confident they will be in that stadium for the 20/20 season......NO.
  14. Raiders hire Mike Mayock as GM

    This lucky duck. I mean he had a gravy job that meant very little. Probably paid well but he's in NY I presume. What a pit. Maybe only answers to himself though everyone at the network has an opinion on the prospects. Now he gets to work for the RAIDERS. Mingle with the best fans in the league. Oh yes!!! He'll be stationed in Vegas baby with a new stadium...…….and no state income tax. I'm sorry, I'm excited.
  15. Raiders hire Mike Mayock as GM

    Rolni: Shame. Pessimism. Let's not go south on this at this stage. What a draft we have to look forward to.
