  1. Las Vegas Stadium News

    That's what she said
  2. Raiders officially on Hard Knocks

    I thought it wasn't a choice? All indications are no team wants to do it. It is forced on them. NFL went with choice that makes the best TV. Redskins and Giants don't have a lot of personalities. Nobody is tuning into watch a Beckham-less Giants team. The Raiders are ripe for drama and I'm here for it.
  3. Raiders sign G Richie Incognito (One year deal)

    Best to ignore him. Raider homer who's been banned several times and changed user names. I honestly just hope for Richie's sake, he's in a good place with his mental health. It's no laughing matter and hopefully he's gotten it sorted out.

  5. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    John Morton was a low key solid hire on the staff. Also... Mike Glennon looks like Groot
  6. Clowney

    Stay the course. You traded Mack to get younger and cheaper. Draft well and develop. It's not time for knee jerk trades. The team is 2-3 years away from competing anyway.
  7. Offseason workouts underway (OTA's page 6)

    Carr is currently an average to slightly above average QB. He can go either way. The good news is, we've seen him look like a true franchise QB back in 2016. We know what he's capable of in the right system with the right protection. So you can bet on the upside. He looks to be in great shape. Look more muscled up than I can remember seeing him. Or is that just me? Also.... average QB play in the NFL is better than the alternative. You can win with average. I think a lot of fans forget how miserable the position was before Carr.
  8. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    That is absurd if you believe this? His skill set is incredibly polished. He's had some injuries, but his production when playing and more importantly his skillset and how it translates to the pro game are great. He walks into the NFL with some of the best hand usage of any pro at the position.
  9. Projecting the Raiders Win Total

    5 wins and it's pretty easy to see why: Oline - Cable has consistently shown he can't coach an Oline in pass pro and they Raiders offense needs that Pass rush - way to much pressure on Ferrell and ability of 2nd year guys to "take the next step". Not a single consistent pass rusher on the team. In summary.... if you can't protect the passer and you can't rush the passer, you won't win a lot of games. Throw in a brutal schedule and it's a recipe for a 5 win season.
  10. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    Personally, I would be pretty disappointed in that. I feel Chris Long had a disappointing career for the #2 overall pick. He was a great leader and teammate, but he simply didn't change the game the way a #2 overall pick should. Did he ever make pro bowl?
  11. Raider UDFA's

    The most unpredictable thing in the draft is between the ears. A person can have all the talent in the world, but if the mindset isn't right, it will fail them. If I'm an NFL team, I keep a sports psychologist on staff at all times to work on the mental side of the game with young players.
  12. This Ain't Raider Talk Baby!

    Dexter was the product of greed. Should have climaxed and ended in season 5, but it was printing money so they stretched it for 8 seasons. I hate that TV does this with good shows. Why I always respect Breaking Bad for telling story and ending it on their terms. GOT, I've watched the first 3 eps 3 times, can never get into it. Heard it's great from literally everyone
  13. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    More PFF garbage. This is a completely subjective stat one. And two.... 3 of those QBs are not even in the top 10 in the league. So what's the stat prove?
  14. Random Raider Stuff

  15. Around The League V.2

    Based on what? They are not even putting pads on right now. Anytime I hear "tearing up rookie camp" I remember one of our most notable "beasts" Juron Criner.
