  1. Raiders sign G Richie Incognito (One year deal)

  2. Pick is in, #24 Josh Jacobs RB Alabama

    Love it. Most complete back in the draft and we're in dire need of one. Should make an immediate improvement on the offense
  3. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    Was underwhelmed when the pick was announced but I'm coming around to it. Ultimately I'm glad it's not a QB and at least seems like the kind of player that can be a consistently good starter. Hope he proves me wrong and really breaks out with how dedicated he seems
  4. Clenin was the green ranger, so therefore he's clearly the best after all
  5. So in other words, you vouch for him?

    Wouldn't mind bringing Crabtree back. He and Carr already have a rapport and we could use the depth
  7. We kept our draft haul so I'm good with this move. Not a fan of the pearl-clutching in a lot of circles either. Don't think for a second any of these character concerns would have kept him from still being on the Steelers if the relationship with Ben was good.
  8. Rams vs Saints - part II

    I honestly feel bad for some Saints fans, a little bad for the players/Brees, but absolutely none at all for Sean Peyton. Had he been on the other end he'd be gloating and attaching a yellow flag to his hip for the next two weeks.
  9. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Why on earth would you rush that play. Sloppy
  10. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    I'm loving this
  11. Chargers vs Patriots: Divisional Round

    Chargers can't help pissing themselves when it matters
  12. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v.2

    The Browns and the Vikings from years back were exactly what I was thinking of, but they too chose to simply use all the picks. Or at most only kept the cycle for a year. Even as a Raider fan those Manziel/Gilbert, Richardson/Weeden double-dips were cringeworthy to watch and shows just using the picks doesn't work on its own. Keeping the talent constantly flowing is exactly what I'd want out of it because you just never know.
  13. The Raider's unique draft capital

    Correct, and I admit that this aspect not being in control is a possibility. I would only say that your odds of it happening are far better with three 1st rounders than just one. Keep in mind Oakland still has all of their picks in the other rounds this year. In 2020 they don't have a 2nd rounder but do have two 3rd rounders. Obviously you wouldn't go in wanting to trade your only first, but with multiple ones at a certain point your rookie class is going to get very large if you choose to use all your picks. I'm not taking into account where the pick you'd receive would be, only that you would get a 1st rounder. Or hell, even a second would still net you a chance at a high-quality player that slips. If you mean who has the security to actually implement this strategy, it's Jon Gruden for better or worse and he so happens to be in this exact scenario. If you mean on the other side, teams trade away 1st rounders every year and it doesn't always work out the way they envision. Just this past year Cleveland had #4 overall thanks to Houston. Teams never expect to be giving away high-end picks but it happens due to injuries/etc. This is the exact line of thinking this strategy would be taking advantage of. "This guy whom we love is still on the board and he's right there! Let's go get him! We don't know what will be available next year, let's give up our pick next year to make sure we get him. He's there now!"

    Maybe not as much as HC but being a coordinator is still incredibly stressful. Just as much as gameday stress too unless someone else would be calling plays
