    Sticky: Random thought: There was a time when Tampa Bay...

    Random thought: There was a time when Tampa Bay was synonymous with losing. I never thought in my lifetime I'd see them win one Super Bowl, let alone two. But here we are.

    If you were the betting...
  2. Was there ever really a time when the NFL wasn't...

    Was there ever really a time when the NFL wasn't involved in some cause or another, whether it be social, political or whatever? I realize some of it may be subtle, while other times we all tune in...
  3. Well said. The media coverage, the responses...

    Well said.

    The media coverage, the responses from around the league and every corner of the country, the increases in both jersey sales and the number of followers to Nassib's social media...
  4. That's a fair question. Gruden and Gus both have...

    That's a fair question. Gruden and Gus both have said that they plan to keep the best players. Draft position, contracts, etc., take a back seat to that. The most any player can hope for is a fair...
  5. He was cut in preseason. Made it to the final cut...

    He was cut in preseason. Made it to the final cut and the Rams went with a guy who was just as good, but one who played multiple positions. Dallas later signed him, but only to the practice squad.
  6. Please stop. Just stop. It's an embarrassingly...

    Please stop. Just stop. It's an embarrassingly dangerous assumption. The "gay card" is not a thing. Raiders won't cut him because he's gay. Raiders won't keep him because he's gay.

    True, you...
  7. True. Like every major sport, the NFL makes...

    True. Like every major sport, the NFL makes exceptions for rare talent. From most accounts, Sam was an ok player.

    Where the NFL differs from other leagues is that players have a much smaller...

    Are you seriously suggesting that Nassib is using "the gay card" in an attempt to keep his job?

    Let's think that through for a minute. If he doesn't come out as gay, he has a better chance of...
  9. Splitting hairs a bit, but Sam was the first open...

    Splitting hairs a bit, but Sam was the first open gay player to be drafted into the NFL. However, he never played in the regular season. He didn't make the final cut with the Rams before the season...
  10. Sticky: I think it's probably why I hate the spring and...

    I think it's probably why I hate the spring and summer so much. Both are just reminders that football is months and months and months away. Guess I'll go outside and toss footballs in a garbage can....
  11. At this point I think you have to expect there to...

    At this point I think you have to expect there to be other members of the LGBTQ+ community on active rosters, or employed by teams in other capacities around the league. Good for Nassib for coming...
  12. Sticky: And just because it never gets old... Chris...

    And just because it never gets old...

    Chris Roling of Bleacher Report thinks the Raiders should pry Aaron Rodgers from Green Bay with two 1st-Round picks (2022, 2023), plus a 2nd-Round pick in...
  13. Sticky: Agreed. We were even highly optimistic about most...

    Agreed. We were even highly optimistic about most of the FA acquisitions made that we thought would change the defense's fortunes last year. Man, it sucks to be wrong.
  14. Sticky: Gruden's contract probably precludes firing him....

    Gruden's contract probably precludes firing him. Clipping Mayock is the only recourse that Mark has that doesn't involve him being in breach of what I understand is a very ironclad contract.
    ...
  15. Poll: My gut tells me the Clippers will take this, but...

    My gut tells me the Clippers will take this, but I'm pulling for Phoenix in 7. I'd really like to see Chris Paul get to the Finals and win.
  16. Sticky: Yep. And that's the other reason why you fire...

    Yep. And that's the other reason why you fire Mayock. Jon has turned the Raiders into his personal cub scout unit. It's fine if we start winning regularly, but another mediocre season and Mark will...
  17. Sticky: We definitely need Gus to uphold his end of the...

    We definitely need Gus to uphold his end of the bargain. But our #1 draft pick this year was a player on the offense and these last couple of years we drafted some guys for the offense who also need...
  18. Sticky: That's not quite true. If your top guy is the...

    That's not quite true. If your top guy is the league Defensive MVP, it means he's being more than a little disruptive and everyone that plays with him is benefitting in some way. His sacks mean your...
  19. Sticky: Fair????? Mayock was gifted the job of GM of a...

    Fair?????

    Mayock was gifted the job of GM of a professional football team without having any front office experience of any kind, or for that matter, any coaching experience at the professional...
  20. Sticky: I always worry when teams have those kinds of...

    I always worry when teams have those kinds of expectations. Some of those Rams defenses had ballers that help make a LBs job easier. It also tends to make players look much better than they actually...

    That's right, I'm trying to build a narrative here. :D:D
  22. Sticky: The QB market is a funny business. Is Dak...

    The QB market is a funny business. Is Dak Prescott really worth the money he's getting paid? Some say yes, others say otherwise.

    What I do know is if the Raiders don't make the playoffs this year,...
  23. Sticky: You are being far too kind. Yannick said what he...

    You are being far too kind. Yannick said what he said. Maxx and him. Cle was left out, because between the three of them, Cle is the only one that doesn't have double digit sacks for his career....
  24. Sticky: I honestly don't think he will. He's learning...

    I honestly don't think he will. He's learning right now that the only reason why most QBs aren't moved around at the team's whim is because their salaries make it extremely difficult to do that. If...
  25. Sticky: I agree, Carr's not perfect. Really, no QB is....

    I agree, Carr's not perfect. Really, no QB is. But Carr isn't the sole reason why the Raiders have been mediocre.

    Most of the great QBs that are now criticizing Carr were surrounded by Hall of...
