    3-4 yards is huge, especially against corners like Peters. Carrs first Int, Cook had like 1-2 yards, and in my mind was clearly open. A throw any nfl QB should make. to get 3-4 yards on Peters is impressive.
  2. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    All my excitement for week 1 is gone. Gruden has made this all about his return. This move did not need to happen, and the Raiders throwing in a 2nd round pick shows that they wanted it to get done. Sad sad day for Raider fans.

    lol someone asked the guys on serious XM nfl network something similar and they basically laughed saying not a chance

  6. Raiders vs Seahawks

    tank caradine had a good sack, good coverage on the play as well.. thats about it. EJ was meh to bad on first drive .. we arent winnign with either back up, so id say keep cook over EJ

    the raiders will be the first team to pay 2 players 20 mil in a season. Mack wont be traded, no team will give up 2 first round picks plus a starter or another pick and give Mack 20 mil. Right now, the best thing about a first round pick is THE FIFTH YEAR OPTION It is one of, if not the main reason, why teams trade back into the first, when they are already in the second. with the way the Salary Cap is, getting a 5th year is huge. Sucks, but the Raiders arent at fault for this .. bring it up end of year with the players union. will Mack be underpaid this year, yeap. Will he sign a ridiculously big / record setting contract next year, yeap. Add in, if we move to Vegas next year, it will work out even better for Mack. Why get a big signing bonus right now, when you can potentially wait 1 year and pay 0% state income tax on it. Obviously, there is risk of injury... but then should every player in the final year of a contract should hold out?
  8. Preseason Week 3 GDT - Packers @ Raiders

    I hope carr runs a lot this season. 3rd and 4, if its there, just take it and keep the drive going

    god our dline could actually be impressive this year!
  10. Looking back at Reggie's drafts as the Raiders GM.

    yea i think gruden had a huge role in this draft too. As someone said earlier, Reggie takes to many chances in the first and 2nd round. 2014 was an incredible class, that could go down as one of the raiders best drafts ever, but its almost like it got to Reggies head. you dont need to draft people in the 2nd who are 3rd and 4th round prospects.
  11. Looking back at Reggie's drafts as the Raiders GM.

    theyve been bad, but he does pull in talent later on and with UDFA, but it goes to show how bad AL came at drafting late in the game. Gruden will be calling the draft picks soon enough, but I think Reggie will stay with the Raiders.

    all the money goes into an escrow at the time of the contrct though. The team needs to prove they have the money. That being said, I agree with what BP wrote below. Mack still is under contract. Its easy as fans to say, cave in and just give him a new one, but then it starts happening every year with every player and it can get out of hand.

    I have a feeling though, the Raiders want to front load the contract, as they usually do under Reggie.

    well for one, that 12-4 season (12-3before Carrs injury) probably would have been a 9-7 type season. Mack was closing out games for us, when teams had no choice but to pass, Mack was a monster. 5 forced fumbles, and IIRC, 3 were in the closing minutes. last year, teams could run and sure maybe he doesnt make a ton of difference, but when the Raiders are playing well, he dominates.

    yea he seemed to go back and forth between the ones and twos as well... unfortunately saw Nelson start with the ones as well. Obi didnt catch my eye at all though.
