    I find it mildly hilarious that we're spending so much time and energy on the offense when the defense was the problem. But I guess if you don't know how to fix the defense, the next best thing to do...

    With two weeks until free agency I'm going to sit back and watch this play out. I think everyone is on the same page about what needs to happen here with respect to the Raiders' FA priorities. As...

    It's not entirely beyond the pale. I mean no one thought we could get a 1st for Amari Cooper, but somehow we did.

    A team desperate enough would toss in two 1st round picks for a decent starting...

    You say that like agents and players have the advantage when it comes to contract negotiations and can just ask for whatever they want and the team will roll over. The simple fact is the negotiation...

    They do get really, really quiet when teams do it, don't they? Dude was let go 4 days before the contract was even a year old. And it looks like the market will soon be flooded with LBs.

    Faith can only get you so far. Even the most devout Hebrew had to wait 400 years before Moses showed up to free them from Egypt. If it was just up to faith alone, I'm sure they would have threw off...

    Actually, it was Watt that said that he wanted to sign with a contender. They were just parroting him. Guess we now know the truth. He wanted out of Houston.

    Not quite. Gruden thought that he could easily replace Mack. If he thought that he could do that with Carr, he would have already traded him. Not saying that Gruden doesn't have a wishlist of QBs...

    Seattle would want much more than that. And they'd get it. Maybe not from the Raiders, but from lots of QB hungry teams out there with lots of assets to package in a deal.

    Honestly, I see Carr giving Mayock and Gruden this season to turn the defense around. He won't sign an extension. Won't ask for it. His agent might as due diligence, but Carr will likely keep his...

    You make a good point.

    Far too many Raider fans want to throw Carr out with the bath water, despite the fact that the man has shown nothing but commitment to the Silver and Black. No one seems to...

    Trust me when I say that I'm doing the world a favor by not drinking. I come from a long line of hyper-violent drunks. We jokingly call it "Black Label psychopathy." It's the luminosity of violent...

    For now Carr's contract alone doesn't prevent the Raiders from building a solid defense, or generally building around him. Yet. I don't see the Raiders going after Wilson or any other top flight QB...

    This only works if Dungy had taken Mora's old team to the Super Bowl the very first year that he took over from Mora. I'm going to need a few drinks in me before I can see a similar narrative here....

    That's the hidden irony of it all. Gruden wanted personnel input badly. So Al Davis gave him his first big decision. Told him he had an offer of two first round picks and two second round picks, plus...

    Carr on Indy would make that a very, very dangerous team.

    But it looks like it's Wentz's spot now.

    Agree with you there. I didn't expect at this point of Gruden's second campaign that we'd be looking at some of the same problems that we had before we hired him. But here we are. But at least the...

    Considering how much Gruden complained about not having any real power when it came to personnel decisions and the draft, I think it's a stretch to say that Gruden "built" the Raiders. Al called the...

    Right, but since signing that extension in 2017, what does the Raiders' playoff appearance ledger look like?

    And I wasn't comparing Watson and Carr. If anything, I was pointing out that...

    RIP.

    Assuming no foul play, it could be any number of things. Let's not be too quick to blame CTE. NFL players are always talking about how devastatingly traumatic it is to leave the game of...

    Never thought we had a legitimate shot at Watson. But it's good to know that the 3 first rounders that I proposed in the other thread now seem like chump change compared to what people now think it...

    It wouldn't surprise me if Short hangs them up. Word is he has a chronic shoulder injury. I can't see the Raiders taking a flyer on him, but you never know.

    Let's hope that he's healthy enough to send Harris packing.
