  1. This Ain't Raider Talk Baby!

    Thanks, I don't claim to understand that. Was just curious. I was never a fan, so I won't bring anything negative. Sad tragedy no matter who it is.

    Well Ferrell for instance. They all labeled him as pro ready and it stuck.

    You guys put too much stock in what media experts label players as.

    He'd be the best LB on the team day one. It's a bit desperate, but aren't we desperate by now?

    Ok some tidbits for ya. He's not a burner and probably won't wow anybody at the combine, this is good for keeping his stock down. He was basically the Renfrow for the Buckeyes since he got there. Always found a way to get open and convert when needed. He's obviously a better and bigger athlete. Even with a lot of talented guys at WR over the past few years, some of which were drafted high last year, he has been my favorite. He is the all-time reception leader for the team breaking David Boston's record late this season. I don't have his specific stats in front of me, but I'm pretty sure he caught a pass in just about every game. He had a long streak going. I'll add some stats in a bit.. Ok, so he had 56/549/3, 70/885/6, and 57/636/10 the last 3 years. 201 career catches. I think he fell short of the best streak by a game, but 47 straight games with at least one catches is still impressive.

    That's a great deal. We get LB help and can draft a OG with 101. Not sure what Kirkseys contract looks like, but I'd imagine we save some cap too.

    I don't disagree, but I do think we can make it work with a few #2 type guys. Let's face it, Brown and Rice weren't #1 types by the end of their careers. However, they knew where to be and how to get open. Then they could make a play once the ball was in their hands. Porter was the "big play" guy and he was the #3 and late to the party. We need a good group overall. Having practice squad guys out there is just not going to cut it in this offense.
  9. New Derek Carr thread

    Is that an opinion or are you basing it on something? We saw him with Coop and Crabs and how well they did, not how bad they were. Right? They were pretty good in the first year together in 2015 and took off running in 2016. Anyone who disagrees with that, well I don't know what to say. 2017 was a complete offensive meltdown. I think we all believed Downing was the problem at the time. 2018 was a complete roster tear down. Yes, Carr and Coop were together and clearly not on the same page. I've made my feelings known about Coop not being able to be the #1 guy alone. It doesn't mean he's bad, he's just not the type of WR to dominate and beat double teams. Has to have a Crabs or Gallup on the other side to be effective as possible. I realize Coop is the only guy who went elsewhere and played well, so he's the only guy you can point too and say see...look.... 2019 second year in the system. Slightly improved play, with slightly better wideouts. Although I could really argue that Jordy and Roberts were just as productive as Williams and Renfrow. Waller and Cook were mostly a wash too. This has been the biggest gap imo between me and guys wanting to replace Carr. I think our WR corp is meh and others seem to think they are really good. I don't know why people think they are/were. I see potential in Williams and Renfrow if they're healthy and not focal points, but part of the group. 2020 third year in the system with a couple new and improved targets??? I'd love a #1 guy, but we really don't need that in this offense. We just need playmakers who can be where they are supposed to be, catch and run. It's pretty simple. I'm taking the best guy available at #12, but if we end up going defense in the firsts and grabbing in the 2nd or 3rd that'll be ok.
  10. New Derek Carr thread

    And that's where my uncertainty comes in. You see "better" QBs throwing open WRs. I see "better" WRs getting open for their QBs. I'm a firm believer in needing both to be successful. I know some WRs that can play with just any QB, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen a QB succeed(win and put up big numbers) without good WRs. For those two specifically, Tua has had elite talent his entire career around him. I'll be interested to see how he adjusts to having average guys. Burrow had one amazing season. Was that him developing? Was it the system? Was it the talent around him? We will see when he gets to Cincy.
  11. New Derek Carr thread

    Yes, the difference is you want to pin that all on Carr. As if all the injuries and the rest of the team didn't struggle. It wasn't just him succeeding early and it wasn't just him failing late. That's the main difference between the two sides.
  12. New Derek Carr thread

    I'm guessing the opposite. He knows they were just talking about the fight or whatever. The media and fans immediately jump to "Brady to Vegas" because they had a convo. That's where we are in the world. OMG they talked! He must be coming to Vegas! Even though it's completely absurd and straight up tampering if anything like that was discussed. Even if the Raiders and Brady wanted to pair up, it wouldn't have happened then and there. It's the 24/7, always a camera around, clickbait, always speculating on everything, 13 year old girl society we live in. I wish Carr didn't let it bother him so much, but he's only human. He always laughs it off though and even talked about taking the first snap and many more to come in Vegas. You can call him thin skinned in some of his remarks, but I also see the "Alpha" confidence in some as well. "This is my team, I'll be here a long time, I'm taking the first snap, we are on the cusp, etc." None of what he has said in the last two years has ever lead me to believe anything other than, he knows he's the QB and unless completely blindsided, will be the QB like it or not.

    Didn't have the money when they were in Oakland, funny how that works.

    Richard is a better option imo as the #3 back. COP, pass catcher, with a rare run to keep the defense off-balance. Washington played pretty well down the stretch, but over his time here he has never quite been enough to be a #2 or #3. He's somewhere in the middle for me. So if we get a solid #2, there's just no room for him. In your #2 you either get a guy with great speed who can rip off 6 ypc on limited carries or the big bruising type that can spell Jacobs and get tough yardage. I lean towards the latter and DWash is neither.

    I'd love it if we could get my boy Hill in the 3rd. Whoever grabs him will not be disappointed.
