  1. 2019 NFL Draft V3

  2. 2019 NFL Draft V3

    It's smoke season people!
  3. How i see the top 35 going... (NO TRADES)

    I don't understand this value thing people put on top 5 draft picks just because of the position the player plays. MLB is the QB of the defense. How is that not of value if you like the player and think he can be a blue chipper for you. Just more draft nonsense imo. With that said, I don't think White is a top 5 pick because of his inexperience as a MLB. He will be a great player in this league but I think it will take a year to get there and you can't take a guy like that in front of Q, Bosa, Allen, Gary, Simmons, Oliver, Metcalf and J. WIlliams. With THAT said, I think he is a great fit for us but only if we move down some. Say to the 7th-12th spots. Gaining the extra pick/s and getting White would be huge and the landscape of the roster would be idle and set us up for having a great LB core for years. With VB and Whitehead already in place they provide the insurance of vets who have seen it all and played different positions. With Lee, Morrow and Cabinda we have young guys that we are coaching up and have shown flashes. Adding White brings in a an Alpha that can lead that group. Of those 6 guys I would probably start VB at MLB with Cabinda behind him, Whitehead at SLB with Lee behind him and White at WLB with Morrow behind him. I was gonna get into how Guenther can help White's game and who we'd play on passing downs and what not but I ran out of time haha. Just watch the video and know I think White would be invaluable to us because he would be a 3 down backer while you may want to take VB and/or Whitehead off the field in favor of one of the young guys on passing downs. With the 24, 27 and 35th picks I would look at guys like Cody Ford, Garrett Bradbury, Julian Love, Byron Murphy, Miles Sanders, Clelin Ferrell, Devin Bush, the Iowa TEs, AJ Brown and Jaylon Ferguson, assuming they are there ( I know some won't be).

    Yeah, if anything comes of the VB signing it could be letting Cabinda learn behind him. Both the right and the wrong way to do things. I think Guenther will really coach him up.

    I'm glad they seem to have put the past behind them but that wouldn't have happened or been a public issue unless they were forced to by public pressure and perception from being signed to the same team. They are smart enough to know that they have to coexist to accomplish anything. I know VB is on a one year deal but my take is neither will be a Raider in 2020.

    Why does it matter whether it's on or off the field? You said you called a guy names. Did you target guys heads intentional? Did you hit guys in the crotch after they were down? Did you twist guys ankles after they were down? There is a huge difference and it's not "just being aggressive". He is a bad person the same way a cop that gets multiple excessive force charges is or a fighter that loads his gloves or punches after the bell REPEATEDLY is. You are who you are. That your trying to make a distinction and say he is a different person on the field is nonsense. Millions of people play contact sports without doing the blatant crap he does over and over again. It's not like he made a mistake and he tried to learn from it or something. This stuff was still happening last year. Let's just play this out for a sec. What if he signed somewhere else and hit AB in the head again and did serious damage. I know everyone in here would be call him trash just from the reaction we get in gameday threads from a dropped pass or a missed flag. Call it like it is man! Either you are ok with this garbage person being allowed to stay playing and for our team no less or you are against it.

    Man...I hate agreeing with a Donkey about anything but Shannon...
  8. Raiders sign LT/RT Trent Brown (4 years, $66 M)

    Here is a nice breakdown of our OT position status and how it could play out.

    That is the thing about bad people though. Many don't wanna be seen as such. It's a "bad" look. They keep things buttoned up a lot of the time. Wearing a mask, in other words. It's when stress is applied, inhibitions are lowered or when quick thinking is necessary that the mask can slip. This is why you look at someone actions over a course of time and not just one incident to judge their character. Now I also think some don't have the proper experience, training, mentor-ship or development to form good judgement to inform their actions or have had experiences that damage their mental and emotional make up. But excusing these people actions isn't helping them or anyone else in the long run. I stated this before but I have personal feelings about this because a guy just like this ended my playing career when he shouldn't have been on the field. He was a repeated bad act offender but was given slack because of his "talent". He went on to seriously injure someone in college with another egregious act even worse than the one on me and was off the team and later jail.

    Romo was a one year Raider who I think is a bigger piece of trash than VB. Players that played back in the 60's and 70 have no relevance to this discussion as there were different standards and acceptable norms back than. Of course, I love our history, legacy and accomplishments. But if you are asking if I think any of those guys would be considered bad people, I'm sure they would. I haven't dove deep into any of their actions on and off field to say that for sure. But to that I would say the same as I say about VB, I would cheer the team and not the trashcan signed to a deal with the team.

    And about to have another bad MLB. In more ways than one.

    Yeah, let's shot for mediocrity and be ok with it's signing.

    How is 5mil minimal loss? You don't know the contract details yet. And at this point in their careers I don't think his upside is better than Zach Brown's upside because Brown hasn't had any of these issues and hasn't had a down year and VB is...well you know.

    And what are the players suppose to say. He is on the team. Got to make the best of it.
