Raiders Defense

This has been something I have noticed from Carr most of his career.  He is frustrating to watch when we are up but an assassin when we are down and it is close.  I am not sure how the stats play out but it is how I remember it.

I am not making the direct comparison, but Stabler was also at his best when our back was against the wall. I think this is more of a team personality thing rather than a Carr-thing.

We are like the boxer that is clearly winning the fight who starts show-boating and his opponent catches him with a hay-maker and the contest is back in the mix again. Not the perfect analogy but as a team we need to learn how, when we have our opponent on the ropes, to finish them off. To be clear I am not complaining about the team, 3-2 into the bye is amazing considering what Raiders teams have been like of recent years.

LB Deone Bucannon would be an interest signing. As you know our LB depth is iffy, Bucannon would be cheap and add speed to our unit. Still think our defense needs to be faster. Morrow has been solid, Deone be good depth behind him 

Definitely worth consideration. Given how few LBs we carried going into the season and then Lee's injury and Burfict's suspension, I think we need to be looking at any LB who is cut to see if they can add depth or upgrade our corps or any low-pick trade.

With that having been said, I think Morrow and Whitehead have really stepped up given they are playing nearly every snap in nickel. However, my bigger worry is that we are one injury to one of those two away from starting Dakota Allen or Justin Phillips - both have potential, but shouldn't be starting (at least yet).

Still wish we drafted Winovich.  Saw a sure thing and don't understand how he dropped so far.  3 sacks in 4 games aint bad.  I hope they put Mayowa back in.

If we drafted Winovich, we wouldn't have drafted Maxx Crosby.

My bad I was looking at Line 45... "slot WRs must be white and always be compared to Wes Welker"

One thing I don't understand is why they keep having Arden Key rush up the middle.I really think we use him wrong and if you ask me he's more of a 3-4 OLB

Do you think Mayock/Gruden would've spent 3 picks on edge players?

No but we needed to since they are so hard to find.

Could really use Winovich's 4 sacks right about now.  I typically never pound the table for players, but I knew he was going to be good.  Hate that we didn't pull the trigger.

I felt like couple blitzes vs green Bay got in... But that we only blitzed few times. Atleast if we blitzed and gave up big plays I'd understand.

 In reality the Raiders had more pressure on Rodgers then  Green Bay had on Carr.
