  1. LOL most Raiders fans on here are so pessimistic. Everyone is counting us out and I wanna see some fight from this team. I'm a 9 because I love ball and I think we'll be improved, which is all I can ask for as a fan.
  2. Washington RB Derrius Guice hurts hammy

    Love his game. He'll have an impact if he's on the field.
  3. You're one of the worst homers on this site. In your eyes, the Chiefs are an AFC championship lock, when in reality they aren't even a lock to win their own division.
  4. Rookie Predictions

    I'm a bit intrigued by Ferrell as far as being a rookie and his production. I fear that if he plays well he may be doubled. Hopefully our front is so good against the run that we consistently force 3rd and longs and can use some creative blitz/pressure packages. At least that's the plan.

    Good teams with depth are even harder to find.
  6. Raiders shopping QB Derek Carr?

    True but our own beat writer said it was false. Which means it probably was false, considering Vic's ties to the organization.

    You're not wrong. But some guys you can't pass on. I'd say Young and Espenesa fit in that category. Especially because rotating pass rushers and having depth is super important. Obviously I'd love for one of Key/Crosby to hit it out of the park, but it's a wait and see.
  8. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    IMO I think the Pack take it. Rodgers just needed a fresh scheme that isn't from the 18th century. I LOVE their defensive additions. If the defense can get some stops, they'll be a really dangerous team. Gary will be a monster on the Pack because of scheme fit and responsibility. The Bears will have a much tougher schedule and I want to see how they do under a new DC. A lot depends on Trubisky and how he adapts/teams adapt to his playstyle. Montgomery was a big add. The Vikings have Kubiak and have taken steps to improve the run game. Irv Smith will allow them to run 2 TE sets effectively (no Treadwell on the field) and Bradbury was a top prospect of mine. IMO 2 of those teams will make the playoffs, but they'll all kill each other off somewhat. I don't see anyone with more than 10 wins in the division this year.
  9. NFC North: Who wins it this year?

    I don't think he's great, but Skrine would be my bigger worry. You don't want him playing significant snaps, or teams are going to find ways to target him nonstop.

    Guys to look out for in the offseason: Chase young (myles garrett light right now) AJ espenesa (lot of similarities to Nick Bosa) Isaiah simmons (hybrid LB/S cover guy) Grant Delpit (maybe a better safety prospect than derwin james) Jerry Jeudy (out of a lab, absolute freak, best WR prospect I've ever seen outside of megatron) Ceedee Lamb (hopkins 2.0)Albert Okwuegbunam

    Easy guys to look out for in the offseason who could be draftable by us (depending on how good/bad we/the bears are) Chase young (myles garrett light right now) AJ espenesa (lot of similarities to Nick Bosa) Isaiah simmons (hybrid LB/S cover guy) Grant Delpit (maybe a better safety prospect than derwin james) Jerry Jeudy (out of a lab, absolute freak, best WR prospect I've ever seen outside of megatron) Ceedee Lamb (hopkins 2.0) Albert Okwuegbunam (nice tight end prospect with good HWS if they truly want to go in that direction)
  12. Around The League V.2

    Yeah he was giving up on routes and pouting. If he didn't do that, I would be more ok with it. Also yeah I agree, he never had the enthusiasm here that he does with Dallas.
  13. Around The League V.2

    Mack essentially forced his way out. I don't blame him, as it's a business. But it doesn't mean I need to support him either. I couldn't care less what he does now. Cooper I was fine with until he started taking shots at us. He's certainly dead to me now. Mack at least hasn't trashed the team.
  14. Random Raider Stuff

    The main reason the Mack situation happened was that Reggie drafted so badly on defense from 15-17 that we had no depth and even with Mack, it's doubtful that the defense would be all that good. I want Mayock to build this team the right way. Team depth, covering weaknesses, and drafting scheme fit players>>a few elite talents and a shaky roster foundation.
  15. To be fair, we were riddled with major injuries on the OL. KO was actually just bad last year. I think he wasn't 100%, but if you hear his offseason interview, he sounded a bit on the cancerous side. He didn't buy in and certainly didn't play up to his $$. Jackson had a hurt pec the whole year which is pretty brutal. Miller played 3/4 of the year with a sprained MCL, which is very very painful and nearly impossible to play well on. Cable is awful. I agree. But it's not like we had a healthy line and then we still sucked. Far from it. If we did, I'd be even more concerned.
