    Sure but adding a non cost controlled asset for a 1st round pick certainly hurts the situation further.
  2. Have you ever flirted with being a fan of another team?

    No but I like to watch a lot of NFC teams. We all like other teams to a certain extent. I find it hard to watch football if i'm not rooting for one team more than another at least a little bit.

    He didn't do well inside. He's not ready to play in there. He definitely is going to get bigger and stronger. That's why he's spending time with Buckner and Armstead. I think he'll be a power/hands rusher outside like Flowers. Eventually he could become a good rusher inside, but he's definitely gonna rush outside with Nassib to spell him and Crosby.
  4. FA 2020

    This year we'll see the implications. Was it worth letting Byron Jones, Maliek Collins, and a lot of their depth go? We'll find out.

    Fulton is interesting. I like him more than most but it's complicated.
  6. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    I think they like corners that have good long speed. Even though I think Johnson is better rn, Terrell physically can matchup with any WR in the NFL, just like Mullen. Johnson can't run with the superspeed guys, but Mullen and Terrell can. If we're building a team to beat KC, that should factor in.

    I'm starting to lean toward Terrell. I didn't like Johnson's game against USC. I think Terrell has a higher upside. He just needs to get a bit stronger.

    If Moss drops to the 4th, he's a great pick.
  9. FA 2020

    Oh for sure. The difference is that Cooper's contract was given at a point where he hasn't alleviated his concerns about his deficiencies. Whereas in 2016, Carr was playing lights out and it was definitely justified at the time.
  10. FA 2020

    THIS I disagree with. Carr's play deserves to be criticized, but not his desire to play and not quit. I've seen cooper quit on routes, games, and this team. I haven't seen Carr quit, even in season when we've been well out of playoff contention. He's also a vocal leader and well respected by teammates. I've seen him put his body on the line for the team too (all those leaps on the sideline, trying to stiff arm that bengals defender, diving for the pylons (unsuccesfully), playing through a broken back, etc. etc.). There are exceptions to every rule. I agree not every good/elite WR is of that mentality but I'd wager that the majority are.
  11. FA 2020

    Nothing. But he also wasn't a vocal leader/emotional guy showing passion on the field. Generally you want guys who show that, all positions be barred. But if you look at some of the best in the game right now, they have that "dog" in them. Like Hopkins, who I think Lamb plays a ton like.
  12. FA 2020

    Cooper made me reevaluate my draft eval of receivers. I am biased toward guys who create separation, but his highs and lows made me realize how important strong hands and an "alpha attitude" at WR are. I don't want to draft a guy who could become a malcontent/quitter. There are some Jeudy similarities but they are different enough that I don't ding Jeudy for it. There was an analytic piece about how Amari is the most "good CB sensitive" and struggles against the best CB's consistently while eating up bad or ok ones. That's telling for a guy you're paying 20 million a year to WIN you the tough games.
  13. Raiders sign S Damarious Randall

    This definitely is the "get faster and more dynamic" on the back end signing. There are actually a fair amount of similarities between delpit and randall, which takes us out of the Delpit sweepstakes. CB all the way!
  14. If we draft a LB on a team that plays 75+% in nickel, I'll lose it. The only LB I'd tolerate is simmons and no way he makes it to 12... I understand the leader thing, but Johnson is a huge character guy so you could make arguments for a ton of guys here.
  15. Pls not trevon diggs no one can convince me that he’s good
  16. Raiders sign S Damarious Randall

    Either or
  17. Raiders sign S Damarious Randall

    Verry nice
  18. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Same. If we go for a defensive player at 12, I'd look to trade up with Tampa ahead of Denver to get a WR.
  19. NYRaider's Quarantine & Chill Mock Draft

    No idea how you got the board to fall like this, but can't complain about any of the picks...

    Easy now...
  21. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Cmon guys let’s knock it off. If you want to disagree on the prospects that’s fine but let’s save @‘s and quote chains for more meaningful discussions. I don’t want to give out warnings during draft szn.
  22. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    I'd like to see key get his shot. He looked good pre injury last year.
  23. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Michael Bennett, Trey Flowers, Joey Bosa, among others would tell you otherwise. He was a better prospect than either coming out. He's similar to Arik Armstead, who was a monster at 4-3 end/sub package inside rusher this year, as well. I like Okwara later. I like Anae a lot because he's a "toolbox" pass rusher. But I absolutely am staying away from Chiasson in rd1.
  24. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Sure but Ferrell doesn't seem like a fit to rush inside. Maybe Nassib does. IMO Chiasson is not on the level of epenesa of a prospect. He has bend and burst, but is not super stout at the POA and doesn't have a pass rush plan. I'd rather roll with Key, who showed some good development prior to his ankle injury, rather than spend an early pick on Chiasson.
  25. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Epenesa didn't have a good combine, but he's a big long power rusher with technique. You don't put up pressure #'s like he does without being that kinda guy. Chiasson has big time bust potential. Epenesa can also rush inside because he has the power to do so. He reminds me of Joey Bosa quite a bit.
