  1. Khalil Mack traded to the Bears (Page 19)

    This. its why i never cared about Carr’s contract, sure he was the highest paid QB...for like a month. Now his contract isn’t bad after what Rodgers, Cousins, Ryan, Stafford and Jimmy G have. In a few years Mack’s contract will look like a deal too. Heck you could even restructure Carr’s deal like how NE does with Brady. In fact they structured Carr’s deal like this so that they could sign Mack and Cooper down the line. Money certainly wasn’t the issue here.

    Ok full disclosure, i haven’t watched Tua at all, however if he does posses throwing issues with his motion, ball placement and he fumbles a lot. Those all seem like big red flags. Gruden’s offense relies on timing and accuracy, if you have a slow motion on your throws you’ll find it difficult to fit in his scheme. If he’s more of a runner like Wilson, his fumbling issues will be exposed on this level, especially against smarter defenses. He may have put up serious numbers but they don’t tell the whole story. College isn’t the NFL. Besides Tua won’t be relevant until 2020.
  3. Random Raider Stuff

    Honestly I'm on the anyone but New England/Pittsburg train. The Steelers have more wins than anyone so until the raiders win three more they Steelers can wait. And the Patriots....I'm so tired of hearing about Tom Brady and Beleick's legacies for 2 weeks. Every year for the last decade its been two weeks of that crap. KC hasn't won a super bowl in like 50 years, I love watching Mahomes play which would make the super bowl interesting, especially if they go up against NO or LA. SD has never won a super bowl and as much as I hate Rivers he's mush less insufferable than Brady. I'm fine with any NFC team winning it all, including CHI. I love Mack, the dude is a classy guy who deserved to get paid. The man worked hard to get to be where he is, and should get a super bowl ring. Plus a buddy of mine is a legit Bears fan so I'd be happy for him too. Both NO and GB winning it would be great fro the sam reasons, I like their QBs and they should get a ring to cement their legacies as GOATs. LA is the team I'd least be okay with, they where the offseason favorites and it's nice to have surprises and variety.

    To be fair Derwin James has been playing at an all pro level at a position the raiders have needed for the last decade. With out miller the Raiders would be screwed but honestly it would put them in a better tanking position. I'm still heated that the Raiders didn't take him.
  5. Keys to Gruden Success?

    The Browns passed on so many elite players, for who? Njoku and the guy from Michigan? They landed mayfield but they literally could have drafted Wentz two year earlier. And the Rams didn’t build through FA. They have two major cornerstones on that team that they drafted in Donald and Gurley. This past offseason they swung for the fences with Talib, Peters, Cooks and Suh. But they still had a foundation in place through the draft. Under no circumstances should the Raiders trade the 1st pick unless it is to move one spot down or an elite level player was offered like Rodgers.

    The Raiders thought that they had Walen who got a season ending injury right after this trade. They liked their weapons with Cooper, Nelson, Bryant Waelen and i guess Seth Roberts. On paper that’s pretty good...amazing what happens in less than four months.

    I’m with you on this. Ironically it’s probably the strongest position on defense.

    Ncough and BP going back and fourth on a prospect, it’s like the 2007 offseason all over again. 😂😂😂
  9. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    Except you can’t trade him until the end of the season...by then you’ll be lucky to get a 3rd for him. Especially if the Raiders could just cut him at that point, if I’m another team I’m waiting and signing him for less. Really the only thing you gain from cutting Carr is some cap room which right now the Raiders have a ton of. Who are they going to use that money on? Clowney? Fitzpatrick? Winston? If anything they should cut McCarron and save 5 mill. They need to go the K.C. route and draft a guy they can coach up if they don’t believe in Carr.

    Yeah it’s OBJ and Sequan Barkley.

    Then next season when the Raiders still can’t rush the passer he’ll lament about how hard it is to find a pass rusher.
  12. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    Elite. This is the problem so many teams have in the NFL. The packers are doing it now with Rodgers and the colts did this with Manning. Teams draft a “franchise” guy and instead of building around him they just expect him to carry the team. Who cares who he has around them the guy is a legend. The best offenses and the best teams put their QBs in positions to succeed wether it’s with personal or it’s scheming to their strengths. Carr has neither of those things, his WRs have all been shipped out in the same year, his offensive line is in shambles. Gruden can’t scheme anymore and it shows on the weekends. Carr isn’t elite, but to be honest who was the last elite player to enter the league? Luck? Wilson? Everyone else in the last few years have all produced because they’ve had good-great coaching. Mahomes-Reid Goff- McVay Wentz-Pederson Watson- O’Brien Trubisky- Nagy I seriously doubt any of those guys would produce with the Raiders. All of them might be more talented than Carr but I’m sure many would fall on their faces in Oakland. And you aren’t going to find an elite QB in every draft, they are rare which is why teams give up so much for them. The draft is a crapshoot, Carr you know.
  13. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    This was my biggest concern when they hired Gruden. It’s a total nostalgia hire. There was nothing to indicate that he’d run a modern offense. There was a lot of talk about nothing.
  14. GDT: Chargers @ Raiders

    So who could produce in the offense? Off the top of my head I’d say Wilson and maybe Rodgers. Almost every elite QB has superior weapons and coaching to Carr. Honestly Rodgers is the only elite QB that’s being handicapped by poor talent mediocre coaching and he’s having a weaker season. And unlike Carr he’s got a pro bowl WR in Adams. The only reason i say Wilson is because he carried the Seahawks last season. This offense is stupid devoid of talent. Gruden refuses to coach 2018 football. I’m not saying Carr is elite, he isn’t, but i don’t think you can definitively say you can upgrade the position with the current guys in FA and the draft.

    I’m going for the Giants. The niners have one more win than the Raiders and the tie breaker as well. The giants are the only real threat to the number one overall. The Raiders only realistic shot of winning again is against the Cards who are pretty feisty.
