  1. Mark needs to pay Mack!

    Mack is by far our best player but our success depends on Carr unless you expect us to be the 85 bears or 2000 Ravens. Mack being here will play a huge role but not more than Carr.
  2. 2018 Expansion Draft - Raiders

    1) Donald Penn - Some think that Jordy's level of play is going to drop off a cliff. Wait to you see our LT get replaced by the 6th game. It will not be because the Rookies are that good. 2) Seth Roberts - It would be a lot easier to score with WRs that do not kill drives with dropped passes. 3) next 3 players that would not make the team or practice squad 4) 5) There are other players I would put on this list but we could trade them and get something in return.
  3. 2018 Depth Chart...How do you see it?

    I think they are both locks to make the team and I would not count Irvin as a DL player. We carried 8 D-linemen last year so that would leave one more spot.
  4. Raiders trade for Martavius Bryant

    I wonder if we could have traded for Gordon wit the third pick.
  5. Raiders Fear Suspension for WR Martavis Bryant

    I wonder if we could have traded for Gordon with the wasted third round pick. I would much rather have him.
  6. Raiders trade for Martavius Bryant

    Hate to say I told you so but looks like Bryant might be facing another suspension. https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/raiders-nfl/raiders/raiders-fear-suspension-for-wr-martavis-bryant/
  7. Jordy Nelson signed. Crabtree cut.

    I do not know if you are referring to me specifically or to someone else but to me if you look at the last two years played (not counting last year because all 3 WRs had down years with legitimate reasons why) Nelson is easily the best WR production wise and easily the WR with the least amount of physical advantages. Right now he knows more football than the other 2 combined and this allows him to to still produce. He is also the WR that Gruden and maybe Carr is going to trust the most until the other 2 prove more. I personally believe we will see a lot of Nelson in the beginning and his looks will slowly transition to Cooper with a few going to Bryant. This will also allow Nelson to get fresh before a possible playoff run.
  8. Jordy Nelson signed. Crabtree cut.

    Here is how I see our WR unit 1) Jordy - He is our #1 until proven otherwise. A true professional that squeezes every last bit of production out of his potential. Struggled without a top tier QB last year so should be interesting to see how well he does with Carr who is not as good as Rodgers but light years ahead of Hundley. 2a) Cooper - Our first potential star who has shown he can produce but not yet to the level of his draft position. Very young and has been overlooked in the offence before because of inconsistent hands and/or bad coaching. Capable of 1500 yards and 10-12 TDs. 2b) Bryant - One of the most physically gifted WRs in the league but has not shown much while having a great QB. He is his own worst enemy but has every reason to get it together this year. Will probably fall short of Copper and Nelson in yards but but could be a monster in TDs.
  9. OTA's

    RM might have little he can do if Mack and Donald are waiting on the other. This has turned into a four way Mexican standoff.
  10. Jordy Nelson signed. Crabtree cut.

    Coop is still young but needs to start showing more. He was limited because of the horrible coaching last year but this year he needs to take a step forward. I personally think he will because Gruden will recognize how easily he beats his man all the time. I see 1300-1450 yards with double digit TDs if we stay healthy. The only issue I see is if he does not get his catch percentage back to 2016 levels or higher he may be used as a decoy more often than not. Hopefully everyone on the staff realizes that if you get him going early he will take over a game.
  11. OTA's

    Mack has one job you want him to do. Who knows how Guenther wants to use him except Guenther. Mack will have different assignments based upon the situation and they will try to disguise it as much as possible so that they can minimize the opposing coaches ability to shut him down. This will not be an Al Davis one on one D where you are expected to beat your man. Mack needs to learn the scheme since he is already a slow starter. I do not care who the player is. You do not want to miss time when there is a coaching change. Every year there are players that under perform when there is a coaching change. Mack can dominate using any scheme as long as he knows his assignments. If he is not on the same page as the team then the D will suffer for it. This was half of the problem with Nelson. The other half was that I have seen some within the the ref crew cover more ground on particular plays than him. And I would argue that Mack's impact and ability against the run is greater than the pass.
  12. Raiders Defense

    In his defense Pagano's D gave up 21 points a game once he took over which would have ranked 15th. I think with an off-season to get the D ready would could have been top ten this year. I am going to pull for Guenther to do good but wish we would have given Pagano a shot.
  13. OTA's

    This is not my original idea but after reading someone else's ideas I believe that Parker will end up on the left and Miller on the right. I hope the coaching staff is willing to give Parker a fair shot at winning the LT job and not force Miller there since he was the #1 pick. Best five on the lie.
  14. OTA's

    Sorry, just a little cautious after getting excited last year to get kicked in the teeth again. I still see some red flags and areas that we keep ignoring.
  15. OTA's

    There also 31 other teams excited about what they could do this year and all of them think they have improved. We should all be optimistic right now because we have change in one of the most needed areas from last year (Coaching) but it does not mean we will improve year one.
