  1. Packers Trade Trevor Davis to Raiders

    Davis looked real stiff the last few weeks with the Raiders. I wonder if his legs hurt? His cuts have been so non existent lately, I thought Darius Shepard was on the Raiders. You gotta figure that he spends a lot time paying attention to his hamstrings, so maybe other parts of his legs don't get worked on so much. I don't think we've heard the last of Trevor Davis

    Not very many catches, is it? But you can't catch it if it isn't thrown to you. It'll be interesting what happens to him in Oakland. He's started every game with them, never started one game with us.

    Plus one for GB for 28 yards = 96 yards

    That was less of a fumble, and more of a great play by the defender. Davis had both hands on the ball, and was holding tight enough that you could see his arms move when the ball was punched out. Fumbling, or being stripped of the ball, is different than having it punched out. There's almost no defense for a perfectly placed punch.

    Davis' end around for a 60 yard touchdown was the difference in a 31-24 game for Oakland.

    You know a lot Outpost. Davis is ranked as the #2 returner in the league so far, he very well may be going to the Pro Bowl. As a receiver this year, 7 total targets and 7 receptions. He's the only receiver in the league with a 100% reception rate with 7 or more targets. And he's averaging 8 yards after the catch per target, a top ten in the league number. By comparison- VS 3.0 yards, Kumerow 2.0, Allison 1.7, Lazard .9. Drop rates- Davis 0%, VS 5.3%, Lazard 11%, Kumerow 12.5%, Allison 13.3%. He's made the weekly top twenty fastest ballcarriers list twice so far this year, in 3 games with the Raiders. Valdex-Scantling has made that list only once so far this year, Aaron Jones twice, Vitale once (Vitale??!!) and Devante has made it once also. He's started all 3 games with the Raiders at receiver. He was featured in the first quarter against us with targets and fake runs, which I think was designed to open things up afterwards for their tight ends. Not bad for a hated jag scrub that we ran out of town. All that hate has now been directed towards Shepherd. Very underserved. Shepherd is in a very tough spot, punt returner is the hardest job in football. He'll never be anywhere near as good as Davis, as he doesn't have the physical ability, but he can be serviceable in time. Shepherd is our guy now, he should be supported instead of derided.
  7. Davante 5th fastest last week

    It's not dumb at all. It's just another way of figuring out who's fast. If you can't separate and get into open space with the ball, then you won't get clocked at all. Seems fair to me. Allison has made the top 20 fastest list (per week) only once in the last three years. Allison doesn't very often separate and get behind the defender, unless there's a breakdown in the defense. Davante routinely makes the top twenty weekly list 2 or 3 times per year, MVS made it 4 or 5 times last year. Our former receiver Davis has also made the list numerous times. Davis was the 2nd fastest last week at 21.68 MPH. ESB has never made it, and I doubt that Kumerow or Shepard ever will either.
  8. Davante Adams was the 5th fastest ball carrier last week. 20.68 MPH. And you thought MVS was fast. https://www.raiders.com/video/nfln-5-fastest-players-of-week-4?campaign=fb-share&fbclid=IwAR2y8RcM7UeCqh__824Z3pDN4FYnQWwXaJ0IfUsBan-Wx0bXDEg775DyLHA
  9. Patriots release WR Antonio Brown

    Agents get 3% max. It's set by the league. Agents have to be approved by the league, and they have to be lawyers. But agents get whatever percentage they negotiate with the client for any endorsements.

    Get off the salt right away. Salt is in almost everything. Chips, salad dressing, restaurant food, avocado dip, even cheese curds haha. it's everywhere. Be careful. It messes up the electrical pulses of your heart, especially when you consume a lot of salt on an empty stomach. Restaurants are notorious for piling on the salt.

    Haha, Cleveland, Minnesota, shoot, I hardly know what day it is. But I am referring to last week's Minnesota game.

    Watch the replay again, the decleating wasn't Davis' fault at all last Sunday. We had a blocker IN FRONT of that Minnesota gunner. He was in perfect position to block him. That's what Davis saw when he looked downfield before he caught the ball. That's why Davis caught that one, he had a blocker in position for the gunner. Instead, 15 yards from Davis (after Davis looked downfield), our blocker peeled off to the right, stopped, turned around and assumed a blocking position without hitting anyone. Leaving a wide open gunner 15 yards to run full speed right into an unsuspecting Davis. If our blocker did his job, that was a 25 yard + return. The field was wide open to the right, and that's where Davis was starting to go. Davis made the right decision on that one.
  13. Good addition, he's a solid kickoff returner (he doesn't return punts). If they put him right in, that'll help save Davis' legs for more receiver duty. Davis runs 2-3 times further than any other receiver every game. Adams, Davis and MVS would be a lethal combination at receiver. Add Kumerow when we need 4, and we're going places.
  14. I know exactly what you went through. I wanted a golf trophy SO bad. Played in lots of junior tournaments. Finally I won a Northern California Golf Association junior tournament, and at the awards ceremony they gave me a stupid, tiny medallion. Dang.
