About NJ Raider

  1. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I know his name gets thrown around a lot here, but even if we keep Carr, if Easton Stick is there in the third, we need to take him. Plays small school competition but have some serious intangibles. https://mobile.twitter.com/cdonscouting/status/1013813793040760841?lang=en
  2. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    It does suck watching Mack dominate. He was one of my all/time favorite raiders and this season being so difficult makes it worse. In hindsight, we should have franchised Carr and make Mack our first priority. However, we can’t change that now. Couple thoughts: 1.) We will have no idea about the conversations between Mack, Gruden and other members of the organization over this offseason as far as who wasn’t speaking to whom. It seems like Mack made up his mind that he didn’t want to be on this team. He was clearly frustrated when KNJ was let go and probably again when JDR was let go. He may have also seen how much Carr regressed. All of those “best friend” comments were pretty one sided. 2.) It’s not like no offers were made. We don’t know exactly what they were and how much cash we had, but if things were that bad for that long, we should have tried to make a deal last April so this season would not be as big as a mess. 3.) It seemed like we were in for a Bell style holdout. The compensation would be okay if not for the second rounder we gave back. I would have rather they kept the third and we kept the second. At any rate, at least we got something for him. Pittsburgh will probably get a third at best. Things look pretty bleak right now. Hope the ship can right itself.

    He needs a scapegoat. Should be cable

    Some 3-4 looks with key and a guy like polite, burns, or Allen with hurst, hall, and Williams in the interior would be pretty nasty.

    Gruden’s offense was actually pretty modern for the first month or so. Can’t do much when only your center blocks and you have all this offensive turnover. Ppl like Andy Benoit and Louis Riddick were praising the route concepts earlier in the year. Some questionable short yardage calls but there was a time when we had a top ten offense until we lost cooper, lynch, and our line stopped blocking.
  6. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    Coop has eight targets in the first half tonight. How many games has coop not even had that in an entire game with us? He didn’t get consistent looks for his entire career with us. Blame playcalling, blame the oline, but the only constant has been Carr. We’ve been making excuses for him for years. Bottom line is that he is not an elite qb. Other QBs don’t give up on plays so easily. I’ve been holding out hope and have been willing to give him second chances but I have very little faith in him.The only problem is that I’m not sure the answer is available this offseason.
  7. State of our team

    This is what I don’t get. They were the strength of the team and I don’t think you can blame it all on zone schemes. Our guards are getting killed on pass plays as well.
  8. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    Hudson is one of the few vets on this team that I would be upset to hear this from. Gabe is fat and slow, KO is playing hurt but hasn’t looked the same in two years. Anyone else that leaves isn’t a huge deal. FWIW, Martin actually has looked decent last three games.
  9. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    That would ruin elways Christmas and make mine to see his smug face when his team lost to a one win, talentless raider team.
  10. Around the league v.1.0

    Titans should be up 28-14 right now. Better not blow it
  11. Around the league v.1.0

    Mack’s debut with the bears was Sunday night week one. You think coop goes off in his Dallas debut tonight and make this nightmare season worse? I hope not.
  12. Starters you want back in 2019

    I love lynch, but I don’t want having him stopping us from getting a more dynamic back.
  13. State of our team

    The fact that Reggie drafted obi over kamara is enough reason to can him. Throw all of the other botches on top of that...time for a change.

    I wonder the same thing. Haven’t seen much of Oliver but Quinnen Williams is an absolute monster. To me, he looks like suh when he was in college but a little quicker. I feel like edge rusher is a bigger need for us but if we somehow win another game or two and can’t get Bosa, I would rather take qw instead of reaching for an end.

    This coney kid for Notre Dame is making plays all over the field. May be there round 2. I would honestly be okay with two lbs first two rounds. If Reggie is gone, maybe it will actually happen.
