  1. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Yeah, this place is more tempered. I think I was on twitter before I made this post, so it just kinda spilled over.
  2. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I’m not sure what it is with the Carr debate either. My guess is that people see what they want to see with him. Some have taken the side of support to the point of denying evident flaws in his game; others have decided that he is horrible to the point of denying evidence that he did some good things last year. There are stats that can be cherry picked for both parties, and when you actually look at it, both sides are a bit right and a bit wrong. I want to start a crusade of grounding all Carr takes across all sources: one which we can agree that Carr is a pretty good QB with a bit more potential, but has displayed flaws due to both his play and his supporting cast. I dream of a Raider fan utopia where we can all be cautiously optimistic until we start crushing teams with consistency.
  3. Raider UDFA's

    I feel ya, I just think the PR/KR should pull double duty somewhere, especially since I predict that they keep a FB, and will have some bottom of the roster decisions at TE, LB, and maybe S. I wouldn't be upset with 6 WR + the return specialist if they can efficiently fill out the roster elsewhere.
  4. Raider UDFA's

    I think we need to account for Dwayne Harris (or outside chance for Jalin Marshall). I think one of Nelson, Grant, Doss/Ateman will have to go to ensure we have room for the PR guy. I'd like to see it shake out AB, T. Williams, Renfrow, Nelson, Doss, Harris/Marshall. Good mixture of vet/young and stability/upside. I like Grant and Ateman just fine, but I'm just more interested in developing the higher ceilings in Renfrow and Doss.
  5. 2019 Draft Recap

    I'm not overly worried about perceived value being lost on some of the early picks. If Gruden/Mayock can continue every draft with this much focus, preparation, and confidence, then this team will be built into a winner pretty quickly. There was obviously a plan, and they stayed steady in the execution of it. After last year's collection of misfit toys, this is a breath of fresh air.
  6. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    I think that’s a fair assessment. I definitely think some of these players that went right after him will be better, but we just weren’t so desperate at those positions. My opinion is that DE was such an urgent need that I’m glad they clubbed down and just hit it in the fairway. I would have been real nervous if they had to rely on a trade up or a player fall to address DE and get a player that might not be as safe of a fit. But your point still remains - it was real conservative. But after all the rumors about Haskins, Jones, Lock, it was mainly just a relief in my eyes.

    Sounds like Keelan Doss now too. Another good find.
  8. Raider UDFA's

    Pumped on Coney, for sure.
  9. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    This team could take 4 QBs or trade them all for conditional 2023 7th rounders and, try as I might, I still wouldn't be able to become emotionally invested in another team, nor would I be able to stay away. Fandom is a curse.
  10. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    Murray has been plenty up front that he isn’t playing baseball. Also, Mayock/Gruden have worked him out/ have presumably talked to him, so they would know if that was a possibility.
  11. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    Yes. I do not see a lot of hype on Coney, but I would love this pick.
  12. 2019 NFL Draft V4

    I like Nelson a lot and would probably put him somewhere in that late 2nd/early 3rd range. I wouldn't mind nabbing an edge with 4, and then trading back either 24 or 27, and using one of the picks recouped there (hopefully something in the 55-70 range) to take him. The two left over from 24, 27, and 35 will be used for anyone slipping too far.
  13. 2019 NFL Draft V4

    I would like Z. Allen very much. I think it could benefit this team to double dip in DE. Get one that can perform pass rush with speed/technique, and then another base type that can still generate some with power/persistence. If the team was to go J. Allen or Burns, say, mixing in a Z. Allen, Omenihu, or Anthony Nelson, out of Iowa would look really nice. I'm a big fan of all three.
  14. Raiders release Jordy Nelson

    I still expect Roberts to be cut too. I thought Jordy was going to be able to man the slot, but eh, I'm not going to worry about losing him at this point.
  15. 2018 Depth Chart...How do you see it?

    I was disappointed about Victor, I thought he was going to be a gem. I think it's possible that they had a plan to bring in both Victor and Cabinda to compete, but drafted Victor thinking he was the one that was more likely to be drafted. Through that lens, I'm ok with the pick cause I consider it to basically just be Cabinda.
