  1. Chiefs @ Raiders Week 2 GDT!!

    I think that was more Andy taking away his leg from the gas pedal...he and Gruden goes way back...
  2. Chiefs @ Raiders Week 2 GDT!!

    My biggest issue to date is that out coaches can't adjust... If the original plan is working, we can be good, but when we need to adjust we struggle...
  3. Chiefs @ Raiders Week 2 GDT!!

    Same here... Can't really see how can we stop them, so Carr&Co needs to deliver big time, to keep the pace and then hopefully with good strategy we can win, but I would be glad with a well played, close game regardless of the outcome. Jones and Clark will provide a good test for our OL for sure...
  4. Roster cut downs

    How does any average back up QB help his team win games? I mean let us wait and see what happens at QB. I can't really see we keep 4 QBs and while I would just keep 2 myself, I can be OK with 3. That 1 roster spot is really not the difference between a PO team and a non PO team.

    I totally agree with you! Also I see a bit of good cop (Gruden) bad cop (Mayock) in this AB situation...seems like they are really on the same page and that GM-HC synergy is huge IMO.

    He wants D.Lawrence money...I say pass...
  7. Roster cut downs

    Josh Mauro is a big strong base DE, who is stout against the run and if really needed can move inside in nickel, dime packages a bit. Ethan Westbrook is a small DT/UT, who is soft against the run and can offer a bit as a pass rusher, however he played with Aaron Donald and Brockers for his hole carrier and also with Suh last year, so his sack number is inflated for sure. He is really just a depth, TC guy IMO. Corey Liguet has a lot better chance to make the 53, while Mauro seems like a lock as run stopping DE. He might end up being our starter accross Ferrell or just a rotational guy if Key can win the staff over, but anyway I expect to see lots of Mauro against the run and no Westbrook on the 53 at all.
  8. Raiders Offense Thread:

    Middlekauff (who is not a Raiders homer) think our O has the potential to be really good. https://theathletic.com/1153576/2019/08/22/middlekauff-with-antonio-brown-drama-mostly-over-the-pressure-on-the-raiders-expensive-offense-really-begins/?source=dailyemail He sees some blue chip guys and some impact starters on paper, he likes our WR and RB groups and think Carr and the OL can have a good year. Carr and the OL are the questions and they walk hand in hand IMO. With that said Carr needs to really show up this year or he could lose his job not just the Cable guy...
  9. 2019 Raider Depth Chart Thread

    Every beatwriter so far seems to be sure about Mauro as our base LDE. Last year we used Granda Rucker because he was a steady option against the run. I still expect him to be safe as a 53 lock. With that said Key showed a lot more against the run and also as a rusher this year so far, so he definately could eat in his playing time. I think if Key can show up we will see Ferrell and Key as the pair more and more as the season goes on and Mauro could stick as a run down guy.
  10. Around The League V.2

    I just try to convince myself a bit here: KO and Gabe was injured most of the season, which made that good interior not so good and both of them also had struggling rookies on the outside in need of help...
  11. 2019 Raider Depth Chart Thread

    Solid, but 25+25+4 is more than 53 bro...Oh I see the trick now...you let Harris out from WR, but still counted into the 25...my bad
  12. Training Camp 2019

    He is supposed to be a Bay Area/Raiders beatwriter...I never heard about him... Maybe he just want to gain followers with harsh tweets?? I'm not saying that he is lying, but maybe overdramatise some for a better click number?? Rams offense is one of the best in the NFL, but you don't want to be tossed around for sure...
  13. Raiders Defense

    With Hurst and Hall on roster I think we won't need to use Ferrell inside...I would let him on the outside and let him develope
  14. Training Camp 2019

    Just wanna play devil's advocate here a bit -their OG position is a bit of a ? after RS left -Edwards is a depth guy for them -Whitworth is a 100 years old
  15. 2019 Hard Knocks: Oakland Raiders

    Ferrell is not a sudden, quick player...he is not an athlete at DE, he is a football player. He plays with high motor, with good football IQ, with preparation and with good snap anticipation. Most people who expects him to be a Von Miller will be dissappointed, he won't be a speed guy in the NFL...he wasn't a speed guy in college. With that said he can be a complete DE and a strong, good one. Worth the 4th overall pick? That is just a fan question IMO...if he can be a quality starter and a regular 8+ sack guy we should love to have him regardless of his draft position... Ideally we can pair him up with quicker guy in the future, but keep in mind that PG like his DE to be complete guys, not just fast sack artists. Ferrell could very well be our Carlos Dunlap, hopefully a bit more that that.
