  1. Around The League V.2

    A big part of why Vernon Hargreaves is available is a lack of hustle which is another way to say love of the game and without that I'm not sure he is a fit with this team. That said putting a waiver on him to test his love for the game and hustle before he is a FA is an option. To be honest I haven't seen him play much as a Buccaneer, but in college he was a star on an absolutely stacked defensive backfield (Vernon Hargreaves, Quincy Wilson, Jalen Tabor, Marcus Maye, Keanu Neal). I don't think at any point in his tenure in Tampa did he have significant talent around him in his defensive backfield. His game's success might be predicated on being able to pass a receiver off to a safety, again I haven't watched so it's speculation, but there isn't a viable safety in Tampa to the best of my knowledge where in college he did. I remember in college Amari Cooper going off against Vernon Hargreaves (his dominance in the match up was one of the strong reinforcements of definitely Cooper over Kevin White, where the only other question became Cooper v. Leonard Williams). When Hargreaves came out the year after Amari, I vaguely remember Cooper speaking very positively of Hargreaves. Then we played the Buccs that year which was the insane penalty game where Carr threw like 500 yards and managed a win. In that game I think Cooper destroyed Hargreaves again, but the game was so vertical if I remember correctly, it may be a bit of the passing off to a safety thing I speculated earlier. Regardless reading this post of mine, I am imagining how a not large corner that needs significant safety help deep helps us in the AFC West. Deep he would be targeted deep by Mahomes to Hardman, Robinson, or Tyreek. The Chargers with Keenan Allen or Mike Williams then have size advantages. I don't know if gambling on him finding his love for the game is worth the potential upside. I think his best future resides on a team like NE as a role player where he'd have safety support and an elite CB team mate wiping out the top option, and a pass rush limiting deep shots time to develop along with a love for football you need to do your job culture.
  2. The Karl Joseph TFL against Melvin Gordon in the red zone was another pretty one
  3. Thankful for the defense stepping up this first half. Rarely get to say that.
  4. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    Plus we run a lot of wide 9 to threaten LBs at the double A gaps and not only would Allen be good at wide 9, he'd have been good at LB threatening blitz too. Ferrell isn't a kill me bust though so it's not that important. The big miss was not trading up for Bosa, much more so than Ferrell over Allen.

    Redskins really did Trent Williams dirty based off what I've read. Misdiagnosed his cancer for years so it went untreated and now are investigating him for going outside the team doctors for treatment? Messed up.
  6. Week 8 GDT - Raiders at Texans

    Crazy Mayowa has 5.5 sacks now being a rotational guy

    If KO is back healthy after surgery next offseason, would you have interest returning to our line or nah? Just got cut by the Jets because he elected for a shoulder surgery they didn't approve of. When I mean interest, I don't mean money near the old contract he had with us, but something in line with a 30+ year old guard off surgery.
  8. Texans acquire Gareon Conley for 3rd Rounder

    Xavien Howard and Carlos Dunlap make the most sense as acquisition targets for us imo, given the other team would have to be a seller and the Bengals and Dolphins should count as that. Howard as fire sale Dolphins, Dunlap as a former Paul Guenther guy.
  9. Week 7 GDT - Raiders (3-2) @ Packers (5-1)

    Why is Glennon in?
  10. Bears "at" Raiders - The London / Mack Revenge Game

    Awesome first half
  11. Week 4: Bounce back?.. Raiders @ Colts

    eh other than maybe getting one from Flacco it's not a big deal. Mahomes is MVP and Vikings don't throw.
  12. Week 4: Bounce back?.. Raiders @ Colts

    "Now it's up to the defense" "pick 6" nice.
  13. Week 4: Bounce back?.. Raiders @ Colts

    Maxx Crosby has made a handful of heads up plays
  14. Week 4: Bounce back?.. Raiders @ Colts

    gross play call run with richard on 3rd and 9 or so what was the plan there
  15. Week 4: Bounce back?.. Raiders @ Colts

    Is that Keelan Doss? Congrats to him
