  1. Raiders are signing LB Vontaze Burfict

    I'm worried we waited too long to get an impact DE. Anyone we get now is 1 year fodder. Even if we draft one impact player, our pass rush isn't going to get much better over last year. Which is sad as it was one of our clearest areas of need.
  2. That was my thoughts. 3 team trades for high picks like that, well I can't remember if there has ever been any done. Maybe 1 or 2?
  3. Tyrell Williams signs with the Oakland Raiders

    But Tom Cable. #iwin
  4. Raiders sign Tyrell Williams

    For a second there, I thought you were talking about Amari Cooper..... ...true story tho

    I'm not talking Brown vs Good, I'm talking net gain. Even PFF is grading Brown out as average. So, we went from putrid LT to average LT and below average guard to below average guard (PFF's rankings). How is this magically supposed to transform an O-line that gave up 50+ sacks last year to the QB who is 2nd fastest in the league at getting the ball out of his hands? The proper answer is, the OL still needs more work. We either need to continue to address it in the draft r free agency, or pray that a couple of our guys make leaps and strides in their game. Shiny new LT feels nice, but the o-line should still be rated below average until more is done.

    To be fair, We haven't gotten you back for that incomplete reception in 1972 yet either...
  7. Raiders sign LT/RT Trent Brown (4 years, $66 M)

    Smart move would be to just let them compete and whoever wins, wins.
  8. At this point I'd rather draft a back at 27 or 35. Take a flier. RB is that position where your odds at nabbing an elite back in the 2nd are better than other positions.

    Yes but. Flopping Osemele for Brown isn't really that huge of an upgrade on the o-line as a total, if any. Good is a wash, he isn't going to win our hearts over but he will be a decent player. Hopefully he surprises, but we're going into next year with only 1 upgrade thus far at Tackle. One could argue we downgraded at Guard.
  10. @Frankie2Gunz Just what we were talking about the other day right? Impressive.
  11. Tyrell Williams signs with the Oakland Raiders

    Williams is great. However, still needs time to get the ball out. Don't get me wrong, that's a great 3 wr set. But watching Carr get demolished 50+ times sacked makes me care more about the o-line than the wr's.
  12. 2019 Free Agency V2

    Bell is probably announcing his choice tonight at midnight, which is the deadline the Jets gave him. As much fun as he'd be here logic says he's doing this to gain awareness for his album and is going to the place who'll give him the most money.
  13. 2019 Free Agency V2

    I can see players not wanting to go there, but not Bell. He sat out a whole year and lost out on tons of money all for the sake of....more money. He's got to make up what he lost in this next contract. Although, Pitt did offer him a laughably low amount of guarantees to be fair.
  14. Raiders closing on deal with Le'Veon Bell

    Wow. Just wow.
