Palmer does no favors for the longevity of Coach Allen, stop ignoring the evidence.
Mark Davis needs to cut off the Palmer funding, I`m hoping he isn`t as blind as most of the residents here lol.
Oakland needs to wrestle Alex Smith away from the 49ers, the bay rivalry has become very boring, this would add the needed juice for survival.
The only names I want kept is Myers, sh-nasty, lechler (simply because he is a raider for life) and maybe wheeler
Lots of paperwork to be filed & lot's of freed up money. This new regime will be released from it's handcuff's and I can't wait to see what an updated Oakland Raiders team will look like. I'm not expecting a complete turn around in 2013, but I will look for a competitive team in 2013.
Did you honestley make a thread of our unrestrickted FA???? Who gives a fux!!!!!! New chapter new players! none are worth signing NONE!
Palmer should be kept on deck, for his veteran presence, and his willingness to consistently keep the receivers accountable. Its our receiving core that blows chunks. Not to mention the handicapped OC we have.
Its time to focus more on the defensive side of the ball before he start worrying about our QB. If he brings high draft picks ill rethink the whole idea of palmer being in OAK.
If we're guna keep Knapp IDK if CP3 is his kinda QB. Personally, I like CP3 and think he needs to stay put allowing us to concentrate on other areas.
If not, whoever is going to run the O is guna need to pick his kind of personnel based on the type offense he runs.
Seems we still don't have an identity on offense with a bad match between personnel and scheme.
It's sad. Seemed if we just took up where we left off with our offense and DA concentrated on our D, we'd be OK. But then the O regressed in a big way.
I would suprised if Knapp is retained, his offensive philosphy will endure, but its doubtful he will cordinating it for the Raiders in 2013. I could be dead wrong, but I hope I am not. I am really hoping for Marty Mornhinweg provided he does not follow Reid to his next desitnation.
Wheeler had a good season, he will not be cheap to sign.
everyone else can go. we have folks we can deal for picks. Drop the big contracts and if we are only going to win 4 games, clean house and get young talent in here while Veldheer, Houston and Wiz are still young.
My problem this year is that everyone is asking for the heads of
Knapp and our offense.
When clearly the defense is a HUGE problem.
-We are 30th in the NFL in opposing QB passer rating.
-We are 31st in the NFL points given up in the passing game (second to the Bills).
-We are #2 in the NFL with giving up 12 plays of over 40+ yards in the passing game.
-We are 30th in the NFL with QB completion percentage.
-31st in the NFL in sacks(only ahead of the Jags).
-We have given up more rushing TDs than ALL but 1 team(Bills).
-29th in the NFL in 20+ yard runs given up on the season.
-30th in TOTAL points given up.
-29th in total tackles.(cant tackle anyone)
However we are 8th in the NFL in passing.
We are 8th in the league in pass protection.
