565 Pro Bowl
  1. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    I think there are enough alphas on this defense, I’m not personally going to put an emphasis on getting a guy like that. I’ll take a quiet hard worker if he’s got the talent.

    The Raiders just rebooted the machine, these moves would do that again setting the franchise back another 2-3 years. So in other words it would have taken Gruden 6 years to finally break through. I’m not sure that would look very good. i get trading away Carr and getting a cheaper QB but not supporting that QB with a LT and TE would be silly.

    Did this guy essentially say that it was certain that the Raiders where all in on signing Brady and trading Carr? Talk about a swing and a miss.

    I totally agree but Mayock’s comments suggest that they’ll take a guy who can run more route concepts.

    Another thing about the draft, I wonder if teams will go with more safe picks this year due to coronavirus. My thought is that the inability to bring guys in might push certain guys down the draft board. Take Tua for example, it wouldn’t surprise me if he took a bit of a fall because teams couldn’t get their medical staffs to look at him. He potentially could be the best QB in the draft but he’s always hurt. Without the medical sign off this could open the door for other guys teams have seen throw at the senior bowl and combine to move up.

    I think Okuda is unrealistic unless he falls to #12. All throughout FA the Raiders have been pretty restrained and disciplined, I can’t see them trading up high for a DB. Off the top of my head i can picture a team ever doing that for a DB. If the Raiders have their pick of the WRs i could see them going with one at 12 because it was there only area of need that wasn’t strongly addressed. Gruden loves WRs I can’t see him not taking one of these guys in the first.
  7. Tom Brady to the Raiders?

    Man Brady is making 25 million a year, that’s much lower than I thought he’d get. Him and Carr are more or less getting paid the same. I wonder what made the Raiders back off?

    I think they make more sense than the Chargers. It’s clear the Chargers want to draft a guy and they’d be fine with rolling with who they have. The Jaguars already have a ton of money tied up to QBs that aren’t even on the roster, they have to go with Minchew wether they like it or not.

    I think Lamb and then Jeudy. Gruden likes running shorter routes so I think Lambs ability to fighter for catches will be great and Jeudy’s route running will help him get open. i like Lamb’s sure handedness more though.
  10. FA 2020

    I agree.the 2019 season showed this team lacked in the depth department big time. I’d rather get some competent backups than blow the load on a guy. I’ve been very high on this FA period. They’ve revamped the LB corps, added another starter at CB, and put some guys on the DL. I think the Raiders have to go WR at 12 (I think it’ll be Jeudy, I’d prefer Lamb though) At 19 they can trade back and pick up a guy.
  11. FA 2020

    That bum lit the Raiders up for 7 tds. Lol Tied for the most in a game all time. I’d put him in the Carr spot if QB rankings he won’t be the reason you lose games but rarely does he dominate games.
  12. New Derek Carr thread

    The Buc’s are signing Brady. I guess you can add the Patriots though.
  13. Tom Brady to the Raiders?

    This is very surprising. But I’m more surprised that some here aren’t holding out that the Raiders are going to sign him.
  14. Around The League V.2

    Is Littleton that good? I mean the I’m getting flashbacks of the last time the Raiders signed a “good” former rams player.
  15. Tom Brady to the Raiders?

    Ian Rappaport said on NFL network that he doesn’t get the sense the Raiders are going to make a push for Brady at all. https://twitter.com/rapsheet/status/1239543869018169346?s=21
