  1. The Good, the Bad, the 0-2 team vs the Broncos

    Yeah lets not start jocking on Miller too much. It's two games in and he has his flaws. The interior has "Under performed" but in the last two games they had to play against a good and great interior. There isn't any DT duo better than Donald and Suh, it was going to be tough sledding against them. Playing the Broncos in the Mile high is going to be a disadvantage to anyone especially in 90 degree weather. Also for the entire time that Gabe, KO and Hudson have been in oakland they've been in a Power blocking scheme. ZBS is pretty different and there might be a little of a learning curve for them. Really I'm not concerned about the interior.

    Bosa is going to be out a few weeks with an injury. That *could* drop his stock but idk. I personally think it’s too early in the season to project where guys will go. Only 3 games into college, someone could still breakout.
  3. Around the league v.1.0

    I got into a big argument with a guy at work who claims that the reason the raiders defense is bad isn’t because they don’t have Mack but because their corners can’t tackle. I was like “Bruh, Keenum has all day to throw in the final quarter. And DBs don’t need to tackle if the WRs don’t get the balls.” Of course this guy also benched AJ Green in favor of Brandon Marshall...
  4. Random Raider Stuff

    The patriots also have made over 25 transactions at the WR position since the beginning of the league year. If the Raiders did that they’d be labeled as incompetent and dysfunctional. When the patriots do it, they say, “Belichek is outsmarting every one again.” Or “Player x is going to be winning a Super Bowl now that he has Brady.” In other words no one questions the patriots moves unlike the raiders who get questioned about the kind of toilet paper they buy. It’s easier to run an organization when you don’t have guys questioning your every move. If Billy B traded Mack people would have praised the move and call the patriots geniuses for getting 2 first rounders. If Gruden starts winning then people will back off. But he needs to win a game first.
  5. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    I agree, thing is i don’t know if they are committed to using those guys. Lynch has a great first drive and then was shut down like it was a preseason game and Martin is a mythological creature akin to Bigfoot. Overall the offense looks like it did last season.
  6. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    I have a hard time believing that a Case Keenum lead team is going to drop 40 on the Raiders. The Rams didn’t do that and the Broncos couldn’t do it against KNJ’s corpse of a defense. That being said the offense is garbage with Carr having flashbacks of the ‘nam. They’ll do good if he does because the running game certainly isn’t going to be better.
  7. Week 2 GDT: Raiders (0-1) @ Broncos (1-0)

    Last year, this was the game where Carr broke his back. And the broncos stud defense has always shut him down. Idk they need beast mode early and through most of the game to slow that pass rush. What’s the point of having lynch if you’re only going to play him in the first quarter?
  8. Man, is it ever nice having a real Head Coach again.

    Except McDaniels went 5-0 to start.

    Here’s what i know: Gruden has a 10 year contract, he was brought in to be the long term answer. Gruden also has 4 first round picks the next 2 years. Here is what i assume: Gruden has also alluded that this is a rebuild. I don’t doubt that he liked Carr and Mack when he came on board, but things change. After Mack got traded i think that it sent the message that no one is irreplaceable. Gruden believes in his scheme and if Carr can’t work within it, he’ll cut or trade him too. He went through a few QBs in Tampa so i wouldn’t put this past him.

    Difference is Carr is already signed to an extension. I think if it was reversed they would have kept Mack and traded Carr. Gruden says he likes Carr...but he also might like Mccarron too. I think the Raiders are locked into him for another 2-3 seasons. No way they’d be able to trade him and his contract. All the incompetent teams have QBotFs right now, Dak could change that and Carr always wanted to be a cowboy. Idk that’s the only way i see the Raiders getting rid of him without the cap hit.

    Never said he was worth it but i could see the bengals asking that and the Raiders trading for it.
  12. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    Personally i think Gruden uses one of our firsts to trade for a player. His love for veterans and itchy finger are my reasons. I could see him trading a first and like a third for someone like AJ green.

    Until we’d have to resign them. Then one or both will be gone.

    So is half the league.
  15. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    Rewatching that Cobb td, Mack almost tackled him on the GL. Dude ran like 50 yards and almost got him. Insane.
