I don't know how we could even consider keeping DHB. He's a low-end #2 WR who scheduled to make #1 WR money. That seems like a no brainer. I think Ford will get a chance to make the team, but he will end up being replaced by a slot WR/kick returner type. So I'm predicting neither in 2013.
We're keeping Ford, if for no other reason than we still need a returner.
DHB only stays if his salary is renegotiated AND we don't find someone with better hands and route running skills via the draft or FA. In short, I don't think DHB will be a Raider in 2013-2014. Love the energy and work ethic, but maybe it's ok to see what else is out there. And it just might do DHB a world of good to continue to develop elsewhere.
"Why can't we tell the world that [as the Raiders' coach] you refused to play games in the segregated South, holding out to the point where they were canceled?' And he would stop me dead in my tracks and say, 'Hey, kid -- I didn't do it for publicity. I did it because it was right.' "
Ford's a *****. We can't count on him and I hope he gets traded. What likely happens though is DHB gets cut and Ford stays to help in our KR game.
If we bring back Ford and/or DHB - they better be placed last in the depth chart and have to work their way up.
Streater and Criner on the outside with Moore in the slot.
It's about the QB, the system and the O/L.
It's all about the offensive line - when the big dudes up front can block, everything else works. With maybe 3-4 exceptions at either position, skill players are a dime a dozen and easily replaceable.

I think both will be gone. Streater should be our #1 to start the season.
I think they should keep all of their receivers. Let's not hold them responsible for the poor passing game.
Yeah, they dropped some passes, but they're young. I think they'll get better.
I say cut DHB because he's a douche and he's not that good.
I would prefer to build a team around dominant lines and suffer through the occasional mediocre season because skill players werent very good,then to have great skill players that cant find a whole or an extra second to break away.
Randy Moss sure looked fine once he got To NE.
