  1. Training Camp 2018

    Hard not to chuckle at this after reading the thread.
  2. Preseason Week 1 Vs Lions Good, Bad, Ugly

    I can. Washington has been terrible. Richard isn't a lot better, but he is better. Outside of ball security, Richard has been better at everything else including running the ball. When 2 RBs average over 4 ypc and the 3rd one averages less than 3 ypc that says enough.
  3. Khalil Mack Holdout (To be fined $814,000 tonight)

    Mack will not miss a single preseason game. At least not from a holdout perspective. I doubt he gives up 800k per preaseason game. Worst case he plays out the season on his current contract and for all we know that has been the plan all along from both sides.
  4. This Ain't Raider Talk Baby!

    If you're to blame for them, then I'm to blame for McFadden. I haven't bought one since.

    Still a few other safeties available if we want one. If this is the going rate.

    We don't have the cap space. If he'd be willing to play for peanuts this season, we could probably pay him next year.
  7. Raiders all decade team 2010-2018

    Yeah, that's just sad.
  8. Jordy Nelson signed. Crabtree cut.

    Must be the offseason Always love coming on here to see the back and forth arguments. Guess I'll take the middle road on this one. Cooper is a solid NFL WR at this point in his career. He has the ability to take over games, but for whatever reason, inconsistencies have plagued him so far. Drops, nagging injuries, the way he is used can all come into question. He is not an elite WR at this point and he may never be. There is as big a chance that our WR corp will underperform this season as there is that they will all 3 top 1,000 yards. The potential is there and only time will tell if they can put it all together or not. I'm excited to see this offense with Gruden at the helm.
  9. Random Raider Stuff

    Unless they've fixed their defense, they're at best a game worse then last year at 9-7. Alex Smith had a career year last year and Mahomes will not match that as a "rookie".

    Just joining in the convo that is presented. Got a different topic to discuss?

    Yes, but it also gives us 2.5 in space.
  13. OTA's

    Well I agree with everything you're saying. My lone point was about the Brady comparison. It is a valid comparison because of where Brady came from and where he was drafted. No one in the league thought anything of him. Not even BB. That's why it's such a great draft story, because you know he was skipped 198 times by all 32 teams. It may have just been the way I read it, but you're opening line "It's hard for me to even reply to this. You're using as a reference perhaps the best QB ever to play. And somehow relating that to Connor Cook." speaks like there is no comparison(which you've stuck to). My point was only that Brady was not Brady, until he was Brady . Cook may never amount to anything, but Brady may never have either if not for Bledsoe getting hurt. It's easy to say now how great Brady is. Back then, he was a 6th round pick for a reason.

    We can always save some money by signing Mack to his long term deal and cutting Roberts.
  15. OTA's

    Hate to jump in, but it sounds like you're giving Brady way more credit in those early years than you should. Because of what Brady has become maybe those early years are forgotten. Maybe because the "team" was winning he gets all of that credit as the QB. However, Brady was Andy Dalton at best back then. Not trying to take anything away from him, he obviously had to be good enough to make plays and have clutch moments when called upon. Everyone points to that first season and coming in for Bledsoe, but I always look at that second season when they went 9-7 and missed the playoffs. He didn't start carrying the team like he has for a few years into his career. He had time to develop and continue the winning because of the super bowl roster that was in place around him.
