  1. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    This is a very touchy subject with Raider Nation. I feel most people (myself included) are straight up confused about him as a player. He is soooo good at so many things, and pretty bad at a number of very important things. This season is a perfect example of how inconsistent he is, he will go for 2 catches one game then explode for 10. What is the deal with Cooper!? His hands are of course a major concern and the weakest part of his game. He also plays with little intensity and looks disinterested with no confidence. I wish he had more killer instinct in him. Overall I think It's a mixture of Cooper not being as good as he should be, not scheming him in enough, and Carr being inconsistent himself for why he isn't the projected top 5 WR like many thought he would be out of Alabama. What are peoples opinions on Cooper? Do you hope we re-sign him to the probable decently big contract he will command? Do we let him walk and get a 3rd round compensatory pick? Do we look to trade him to a needy contender?
  2. Around the league v.1.0

    Figured this would be an appropriate thread for discussions/news regarding the other 31 teams (who cares right?). I for one hope we look at newly released defender Kony Ealy. He's only 25 and would be a solid depth/rotational player for our struggling D.
  3. Blake Bortles

    Trade for Carr.
  4. Around the league v.1.0

    It hurts seeing Patterson making another huge play. I have no clue why we got rid of him.
  5. Raiders shopping Amari Cooper, Karl Joseph

    Trading Cooper would suck but honestly he is not worth the contract he is going to demand.
  6. Raiders shopping Amari Cooper, Karl Joseph

    Yes drive his price up.
  7. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    Wow we really are going to trade Cooper aren't we. Jesus.
  8. Who’s the worst team in football?

    We can get out of his contract with little penalties if any. That's the one thing Reggie does well as a GM.
  9. Looking to the future draft.. (yes already)

    You're going to trade for Carr and you're going to like it. Got it?
  10. Random Raider Stuff

    Feels good to be a part of the new forum! Let's fire this place up and keep it going as one of the more active sub-forums on the entire site. You know the drill in this thread. Let's post a lot of Raider related random stuff that doesn't necessarily require it's own thread here. For example: T.Jones was signed by the Bills earlier. I kindof find that funny as they signed another great STer and ex-Raider in Andre Holmes. Good for both guys.
  11. Random Raider Stuff

    I hope we see Cabinda get some snaps. I remember him looking like the worst player on D the first PS game, then constantly got better and better each week. To the point he was around the ball like crazy.
  12. Where will the Raiders play in 2019?

    I hope we get the hell out of Oakland ASAP. San Diego would be cool. Expand our fan base in a new city for a bit while still selling lots of tickets. Previous games in San Diego were pretty much home games anyways.

    So you don't like this draft class?
  14. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    I am worried about Gruden being the guy to rebuild us, but his last draft was not bad as of now. Miller looked solid before being hampered by injuries. Hall has shown flashes. Parker doesn't look very good. Key and Hurst look very solid and potential building blocks. So on and so forth. This draft has produced more already than most of Reggie's drafts haha.
  15. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    That's the one situation he would probably do worse given the talent and coaching in Buffalo.
  16. Raiders cut Derrick Johnson LB

    He was outplayed by second year LB Lee. Good as a leader but that's all at this point in time. Not a big deal.
  17. Raiders shopping Amari Cooper, Karl Joseph

    With Gruden, probably a conditional 7th.
  18. Random Raider Stuff

    Who are some of the better WR's in this draft?
  19. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Unless you're the Raiders.
  20. Raiders shopping Amari Cooper, Karl Joseph

    We won't get a first for him. At most I see is a 3rd. I'd still cry if this happened.
  21. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    I'd still be pissed tbh even though that's more than what we could actually get. If we trade him, he is going to be a perennial probowler for the next 8 years.
  22. Potential Trade Block Players

    Anyone on the Raiders tbh.
  23. Raiders shopping Amari Cooper, Karl Joseph

    Most are.
  24. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    I honestly might get more mad about trading Cooper than Mack based on the fact the return for Cooper will be low. At least Mack netted us some firsts, Cooper would likely only get a 3rd at most. I don't think I could ever forgive Gruden if he came in and shipped out Mack AND Cooper.
