    From what I understand, the Raiders lose $3.2M against the cap, but gain ~$6M against the cap.

    Branch will cost money against the '16 salary cap, perhaps?

    It's a shame, but Branch was never...

    The best case scenario would be for the Raiders to return to LA by themselves and dominate the second largest media market in the United States.

    Short of that, moving into LA with another partner...

    D Thomas (Denver) operated out of the no-huddle. He's a guy with hands who can take the top off of a defense.

    Julius Thomas is an intriguing player.

    Let's keep things in perspective. Can you sign a player to a deal that costs ~$6M against the cap, even if he ends up getting paid more? Could Reggie sign...

    If this is true, Jack Del Rio effectively replaced an Olson with an Olson and a Tarver with at Tarver.

    I would be very disappointed.

    It's worth noting, however, that Jack Del Rio is inarguably...

    Spikes is a 2-down run stopping ILB. He's damned good at what he does.

    His usefulness is limited, though. I still wish Reggie had signed him last year, as he would have been a major upgrade at MLB...

    Seattle's roster is built on trading back and taking 'value' players.

    When everyone in the NFL wanted smaller, quicker corners, the Seahawks traded back in the draft and accumulated big-bodied...

    NOBODY is linked to Schwartz. Looks like he might take the year off.

    With Mangini out and another team looking at Phillips, it's starting to look like Mike Smith or bust for the Raiders DC search.

    It's really tough to tell.

    I see James Jones and Rod Streater, both of whom appear to have a good 'feel' for the game. Both players looked fairly polished last year, right? So... maybe it's a...

    Carr was making steady progress until the Seahawk game, IMO. That was when his progress seemed to stagnate.

    In the end, a QB is judged most critically on how they perform in big spots. Carr rose...

    Let's do something different in this thread: debate who should be the starting QB in '15.

    I'm pretty sure that's a topic this forum hasn't covered yet, right?

    In the past day or so, I've seen Mike Smith, Eric Mangini and Mike Smith associated with the DC position.

    If the Raiders hire Mel Tucker, given the names I've listed... I'd be hugely disappointed.

    How could anyone disagree, lol?

    I had hoped the 'old school' recipe of running and playing good defense was the Raider plan heading into '14. JDR will likely make it a reality in '15.

    The Jags are 9-39 since Del Rio left.

    Del Rio was 45-35 with Mike Smith as his DC, and that's including his first year, when the Jags went 5-11.

    From 04 - 07 the Jaguars were 40-24, which is...

    Last year, I thought the Raiders were moving in that direction. The goal (IMO) was to run the ball, pressure the QB and try to grind out wins. Instead... well, the team was pretty awful,...
