  1. I'm waiting to see the full OL against Houston this week. Very excited tbh.
  2. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Honestly I think a lot of the receivers can fit in a lot of ways. However you win, you win. If Ceedee and Jeudy are not in range (Chicago COULD pick top 10, look at their schedule), I agree Ruggs is a possibility. As is Tee Higgins/Shenault. Shenault is a physical monster. He carries that Colorado team. I worry that he's raw, but his upside is monstrous. Still, give me Ruggs over him because I feel like Ruggs is a sure thing. I'd take Ruggs anywhere outside the top 10.
  3. Texans acquire Gareon Conley

    It’s good for both sides. Conley has been awful this year, but he truly has CB1 upside. Something is off this year. I’ll miss him, but a top 100 pick isn’t bad compensation.
  4. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I've watched every game he's played at least twice. He looked lost in Downing's system in 17 and last year had no chance with our lack of weapons. This year (and late last year) he's come into his own in terms of managing the pocket/pressure, feeling the rush, and generally making good decisions. He was dragging Raiders to wins because he had a good scheme, confidence, and good weapons. He has 2 of those now. The 3rd can be a reality as early as next year. As a decision maker? He's turned the ball over less since the 2nd half of last year and actually made better decisions with the football looking at it as a whole. The difference is it's hard to drag a poor roster to wins with a bad defense against a tough schedule. We have an insanely hard schedule. If we had a cupcake one, we might have a chance to sneak a wildcard. With our current schedule? No chance.
  5. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Again, Derek Carr is not Alex Smith. And the teams dysfunction at a roster/coaching level is a very legitimate excuse. I don't see how it being true of smith changes anything. There's literally no reason to move on from Carr right now. He's played good football and moved the ball effectively this year. He's 28 and finally in a stable offensive system and has started to show progression in several areas. Our fans will cry because they want a playoff team right now, which deep down the coaching staff knows we are not. Unless you think the team is going to net an elite quarterback in the draft, I see no reason to move on from him. Can you elaborate?
  6. FA 2020

    Roby Dennard Apple Waynes and Peters are all guys I'd want to sign. Peters depending on how he plays in Baltimore, as he's been up and down the past 2 years.
  7. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Yep. Up and down. The raiders roster in 2017 and 18 was top notch. That must have something to do with it. Too bad Carr was holding back his brand new offensive coordinators, who are so great they changed every year prior to last year.
  8. 80/20 rule how to FIX it.

    WR, DL, LB. Corners aren’t world beaters but with no rush they’re toast regardless...
  9. Week 7 GDT - Raiders (3-2) @ Packers (5-1)

    Don’t come with logic now. I encourage you to read a few pages back and look at what this fan base is saying about him.
  10. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    K. Thanks for your input. Glad our GM and coach disagree. Good luck with your star qb. Im sure with a larger sample size he’ll blossom into an elite player.
  11. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I just find it funny that you’re singling out Carr when the team got smashed, especially the defense. Football is a team game. By your logic, Jimmy isn’t the answer either. He’s been mediocre and turned the ball over and been uplifted by a genius playcaller, talented backfield, and top 5 defense.
  12. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Imagine watching the game and coming away with this. Your qb just got carried to victory by his defense against a bottom 5 team and you come in here to say this?
  13. Week 7 GDT - Raiders (3-2) @ Packers (5-1)

    I’ll rewatch the play. I don’t disagree he should have looked elsewhere and the throw wasn’t good, but at the very least an upright Waller could have broken it up. I dont understand how being objective and looking at both sides is “defending”. And some wonder why I’m so down on this fan base.
  14. Week 7 GDT - Raiders (3-2) @ Packers (5-1)

    Red zone execution aside, offensively this is a performance to build on with tent brown back. Carr’s pocket awareness and passing initiative downfield were both improved. The young receivers are slowly coming into their own, especially Doss.
  15. Week 7 GDT - Raiders (3-2) @ Packers (5-1)

    Stop you always say this. “I’ll be happy to be wrong”. But keep criticizing him as if he’s the sole determinant of the outcome of the game. Where did I defend the turnovers? Waller got tripped. The decision to run was boneheaded. If doesn’t mean he played a bad game. It’s almost like both can’t be simultaneously true. For the 4th time, please explain how Carr is a bad quarterback. Your words, not mine. Hilarious that you call me a casual fan for looking at both sides of the coin. You can’t even answer a simple question. I know you’ll keep ignoring it or backtrack.
