  1. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Jordan Love is a little iffy. I wouldn't want to spend a valuable pick on a guy who's so raw.
  2. Raiders Defense

    What I find most horrific about our LB's, whitehead included, is that I have a feeling we could fish a LB off a practice squad of another team with some speed and even if they're raw, they could step in and outplay him immediately.
  3. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I wonder what would have happened if Jacobs played. I feel like he could have helped give us a spark in the 2nd half.
  4. Raiders rookie TE Foster Moreau out for year

    He's been so awesome this year. I love this kid.

    Don't disagree. But Mayock showed that at least initially, he can hit on defensive picks in rounds 2-4, rounds we have struggled horrendously in over the better part of 10 years. He called it last year. We're a 4-12 team. Gotta start from somewhere. The good news is, he doesn't seem to be into taking project players with a high bust rate. Instead, he's focusing on getting players who fit the scheme, have character, and can play right away. High floor picks is the patriot way. It's how their defense has become so good. No weaknesses>>>> a few elite players in a unit (e.g. Rams). Those 5 top 100 picks are gonna be gold in terms of getting starters and future starters right away. So will that 4th rounder.
  6. GDT: Titans -2.5 (7-5) @ Raiders (6-6)

    Gg guys. Kicked our ******* ***. Good luck in the playoffs. Nobody wants to play a physical team that just beats you down quarter by quarter.

    The cost to trade up for Burrow would be astronomical and Cincy still may not want to budge. Getting Burrow still wouldn't fix the big problems on this team. I feel good about the direction of this team. The holes are a lot more fixable this upcoming year with cap/picks. Whitehead and Joyner's release will provide a nice 13-16 mil IIRC, which can be used for another player.

    "The guys" I want with both our 1sts. I've tried to watch every single one for at least 2-3 games... Obviously, they won't all be there (cough cough Young). The larger point being, if these guys are on the board, you take them. Chase Young Derrick Brown Jeff Okudah Jerry Jeudy Kenneth Murray Ceedee Lamb Grant Delpit Isaiah Simmons AJ Epenesa Henry Ruggs Javon Kinlaw Kristian Fulton I think Burrow and Tua will go T15. I think Wirfs and Thomas also go T15, but we don't need a tackle. Higgins is a guy I like, but is borderline. His athletic testing will also matter. That means if our picks are ~11-16, that's still good enough to land 2 building blocks off this list. All of these guys are big-time players and can provide an immediate impact along with Abram.
  9. Raiders Defense

    Agree I'm not PG's biggest fan, but you gotta give him a chance with more talent.
  10. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Agreed. Whatever he does, I'll roll with it.

    NGL Tee Higgins is emerging as another viable WR in the mid first. Big guy with serious catch radius who can really move. He can get in and out of breaks. Not sure who to compare him to, but he's a player for sure.
  12. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Yep. Kenneth Murray. Dylan Moses. Isaiah Simmons (if he's there, unlikely). That and WR. Lamb, Ruggs, Jeudy. If any are there , you pull the trigger.
  13. Raiders-Titans GDT

    It's rough. Olsen came in to install the offense and help DC. But I think Jay may come in next year to help mix up this offense. I'm not sure where things go from here.
  14. Raiders-Titans GDT

    I'll need to look back on those 2 drives. I agree they killed us. I was gutted when we didn't score in both. If I'm Gruden there, I call more aggressive plays as well. We saw Gafford once in this game. Looked good. I never heard his name after that. Where is the innovation on offense? Where is a receiver in the backfield? Where is a 3 tight end set? Where is a flea-flicker?
  15. Raiders-Titans GDT

    I'll tell you what I saw. You can agree or disagree. He drops back. Doesn't see anyone open. He rolls to his right. Doesn't see anyone open. He tries to motion waller to run to the right corner. He doesn't. He runs toward the sideline continuing to buy time. The defender is closing in. Finally, he throws it out of bounds. I don't see any world where that play ended favorably. If you throw that ball, it's picked 9/10. The game is already over. If he throws a pick, I guarantee he gets crucified. I guess you can throw it up for ****s and giggles, but even if you throw that in the endzone, how does that make it a good play. All I'm saying. A bad play by DC was earlier in the game when he didn't look for Jones as a hot route on the shallow crosser on a blitz. THAT was a bad play and he should have been aware of the blitz and known where Jones was. That was bad. If he made that, maybe the drive continues and maybe we get points. Just my 2 cents.
