  1. Mark Davis not happy with Reggie(R1trade down)

    True did seem very odd. Personally I think anytime you target a specific guy outside of a generational player you are bound to get less "value" since you already see the player as more valuable than anyone else. This is the real thing I think needs to be addressed between Reggie and Gruden. To be a fly on that wall. Gruden said he was on the phone making deals why Reggie was on the other phone making other deals. For all we know Gruden accepted this trade before the pick was even up. Or the opposite. However knowing how much Reggie value's draft picks it would be a strange move unless his hands were tied. Although it was a horrible draft year we only got a 2nd from Miami a few years back to move down to 12 from 3. That for me was a harder value to swallow at the time but seeing as hardly anyone from that years draft class has panned out it doesnt seem as bad now. So despite Reggie's MO he has had instances of this occur before.
  2. Mark Davis not happy with Reggie(R1trade down)

    Typically terms of these trades are made before the pick is on the clock. So any video showing when it happened was past the point of negotiation. In my opinion Gruden said we are taking Miller and Reggie found a way to get a little more out of it. Look at what ARI gave up for probably no reason at all. I dont know who they were jumping or if they were jumping anyone at all. I think if we required a 2nd in that situation they would have just passed on the trade all together and took the change he would fall or they could trade with another team at a lower price. It is a good deal for Cards no doubt but in this case I dont think many teams valued Rosen as much as the Cardinals who seemed like they just wanted to get any QB.
  3. Raiders Defense

    Thats what I was thinking. Why not. With Tahir in the mix we would have a nice rotation of LBs.
  4. Raiders Defense

    I was not aware he was available. Hell ya I would take him for a year or two.
  5. Round 6: Azeem Victor, LB, Washington

    Ya I remember really liking Victor last year pre-draft whenever I would see him. I didnt watch too much college ball this year at all but from what I have seen on Victor overall is that he seems more instinctive and gap responsible than some of the other young LB's we have brought in recently. He didnt test very well but I think he has more athletic capability and we should see that once his weight is right and has leg has now been healed for longer. I could see him in a rotation early on for sure. But as someone else said I dont think he will have any issues making the team just because of ST.
  6. Raiders Defense

    From what I read we will be doing a lot of Cover 2 and Cover 4 with a little bit of man. Guenther likes to hide two LBs behind the ball/DL and send blitzes up the middle. The hope is this creates more one on one matchups for our DLinemen since those interior blockers will always be thinking about who they got to pickup. Not a blitzer so much as he wants pressure on every play because he thinks there is oppertunity for more one on one matchups. He prefers to get there with four but will blitz if it is not working which also helps open it back up for the front four.
  7. 2018 Raiders - Reasons to be Optimistic

    I agree. I think now its just Gruden who gets final say on some things that were kind of up to Mark Davis before who would mostly just revert to Reggie as he should. It would be wise of Gruden to work well with McKenzie and lean on him. He has delivered on what has been asked of him in the past. Just the wrong things were asked imo.
  8. 2018 Free Agency Thread v2

    I forgot we signed Amonty Bryant as well. That could be a nice foursome of ends. Mack, Irvin, Bryant, Key. One thing I can say looking at this roster its going to be tough to make the team. Maybe top two players are locked at each position for the most part.
  9. 2018 Draft Recap Thread

    I was not to happy at first, Kolton and then PJ. Not because I didnt like either player but because of who else was left when we picked. Now with that said all the rest of the picks kind of made up for it and if you arrange them differently it looks much better to us armchair fans. The one thing I would have liked to see was a better LB but the pool was limited. Genard Avery would have been nice late but late round guys are usually hit or miss anyway. I liked that I should not have to hear about drafted an OT again for a couple years, hopefully. I liked that they doubled down on DL also been wanting that for a while. Probably would have liked to have a Safety at some point, still a need. 1. M. Hurst 2. K. Miller 3. A. Key 3. P.J. Hall 3. M. Bryant 4. N. Nelson 5. B. Parker 5. A. Victor 6. M. Ateman 7. J. Townsend
  10. Random Raider Stuff

    I forgot Hankins was still out there.
  11. 2018 Draft Thread v.2 - DONE AND IN THE BOOKS

    Both would be better
  12. 2018 Draft Thread v.2 - DONE AND IN THE BOOKS

    Man would be nice if we moved up with our 3rd and took two of these guys.
  13. 2018 Draft Thread v.2 - DONE AND IN THE BOOKS

    still some guys in the 2nd I would have considering at bottom half of round 1. Throw in a couple of pretty good OG's and some RB's that are still left and we should be able to get at least one of these guys. Wouldnt mind a little trade up for one of these guys either but typically lots of OL, WR, RB go high rd 2. Landry would probably be the guy we would have to move for since EDGE is a premium spot and CLE and INDY both have two picks before ours. Isaiah Oliver Josh Jackson Maurice Hurst Harold Landry Justin Reid
  14. Draft Thread

    uggh. is this the first time cable actually got his way though? I thought his mo was getting bad players to play better so they always give him a project.
  15. Draft Thread

    guessing we wanted davenport or they thought we did
  16. Draft Thread

    damn tampa traded out and still will get james or fitzpatrick
  17. Draft Thread

    we got tons of ammo now also to move up in 2nd or elsewhere. You can trade comp picks now too if I am not mistaken.
  18. Draft Thread

    that would be a 3rd and 5th if true
  19. Draft Thread

    i hope we got something good now miller sounds more likely
  20. Draft Thread

  21. Draft Thread

    woohoo. Ok that makes it tough between fitz and james and maybe edmunds
  22. Draft Thread

    Grudens back maybe we will take a kicker.
  23. Draft Thread

  25. Draft Thread
