  2. Reggie McKenzie out as GM

    You typically don't want to trade within your conference too. If the offers are similar you go out of conference. You almost always stay out of the division. It's always a guessing game as to what team is going to be worse for the higher picks as well. When Mack was traded, no one saw the Bears as a playoff team, no one. When we traded Coop, things were a lot different as well for them. Hindsight is what it is, but you have to see the whole picture. Just because you don't like the results, doesn't mean you can't understand it.
  3. Starters you want back in 2019

    You guys are so cute

    Yeah, this is one of the deepest drafts I've ever seen. Unless your hoping for a QB? Anyone looking for a QB at this point, well I got nothing for ya.
  5. Your favorite games as a Raiders fan

    I'm sure I'll make others feel old, but you guys are making me feel old. My best memories are of the late 80s when I became a fan because of Bo. So many long TD runs. The man was a freak. Still remember having tears in my eyes when he got hurt against the Bengals in the playoffs. Grudens first go around was obviously the most successful run since I became a fan. I can't remember the game, I'll have to look it up, but if my poor memory serves correctly. We started 02' 4-0 before falling to 4-4. The next game Gannon set a record for completions and we finished the year 7-1. That offense was so deadly. @denver https://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/200211110den.htm
  6. Random Raider Stuff

    I like this version better: The Raiders have placed three players on injured reserve -- FS Reggie Nelson (shoulder), WR Martavis Bryant (knee) and DE Shilique Calhoun (neck) -- cut two others -- OL Ian Silberman and DE Fadol Brown -- and added five players -- RB C.J. Anderson, OL Denzel Good, CB Bene Benwikere, DE Kony Ealy and DE Damontre' Moore -- in the past three days. Oakland has also designated RT Donald Penn as Injured Reserve-Designated to Return. So with Penn the second player to receive that designation in Oakland this season (DT Justin Ellis was the first) that means RB Marshawn Lynch's season is over. http://www.espn.com/nfl/team/_/name/oak/oakland-raiders

    I have Josh as my 1b. If we are not in line to get Bosa, he would be my pick even at #2.

    And what everyone conveniently leaves out is that he's doing all of this, good or bad, with not a lot of help.
  9. Around the league v.1.0

    Um, no. 10-5-1 is the better record. Assuming it plays out that way and that's the only way I see the Vikings winning the division. If the Bears are worse than 2-2 down the stretch then the wheels have fell off.
  10. Good, Bad, Ugly vs KC Part I

    Don't want to derail this thread, but I have to ask. I've seen multiple lukewarm comments about Carr. Why only a solid performance? What more would you have wanted from him?
  11. GDT: Chiefs @ Raiders

    I know there was a lot of grumbling early on about the coaches playing vets and then some of the vets being let go, retiring, etc. I think a lot of those guys just couldn't handle being a part of a rebuild and like a lot of the fans had expectations of this season being way more than it is. It speaks volumes to how these young guys(and vets who are true pros) have shown up and the results that come from that.
  12. Starters you want back in 2019

    That was the biggest debate I remember. Guys wanted AP, Tron, Russell, and even Quinn. I desperately wanted AP and couldn't believe he fell to the 7th pick. Kiffin wanted Tron and Trent Edwards if I remember correctly. I eventually came around to the idea of needing a franchise QB, but that was short lived thanks to Russell. You can't fix lazy.

    I stand corrected. One 10 yard catch ftw lol.
  14. Starters you want back in 2019

    We've had quite a bit of that the last several years. Anyone else miss arguing over Pryor and McGloin?
  15. Random Raider Stuff

    That game sums up that entire season. The ups and downs that happened in almost every game. How bad the defense was and how clutch the offense was. Splash plays from Mack certainly helped. Also funny to see that none of the highlights included Coop. I think we all thought we were on the rise and that adding pieces to the defense would allow them to go far. The defense never got those pieces unfortunately and too many changes on offense brought it down too.
