    It's crazy isn't it? Since '01 we've picked 13 DBs in 20 years in either the 1st or 2nd round, out of 41 picks. That's an insane ratio ... nearly 1/3 of our premium picks on DBs, in a league that's...

    I'm with ya. I do think our $ to production ratio on the OL wasn't great this year, so while I'd like the offseason focus to be on the front 7 for the D, I do think at least one significant draft...

    That's what I mean, I'd like to see that continue. If Nelson leaves, and say Edwards steps in, that number could go down.

    The caveat being that we may have a suitable replacement on the roster, depending on how Edwards and/or Ruggs do with a full offseason. And is there any guarantee that Agholor's not a one-year...

    If I had faith in Gruden/Mayock to cash in the haul we'd likely get for DC, I'd be on board.

    More likely though we'll just end up going back to the kind of football we saw for most of the...

    I feel like there's more talent on defense amongst the supporting cast than there was when Mack was here. Guys like Crosby, Ferrell, Kwiatkoski, etc. aren't garbage. But they'd improve dramatically...

    I think you're right. The NFL definitely has had a negative influence from the catering to FF guys, and videogamers, and having a bunch of highlights.

    MLB is all about homers and launch angles. ...

    I think BB has explained his philosophy as pretty simply, figure out what your guys are good at, and what the opponents are not good at, and try to match it up to take advantage of that. Rather than...

    Look, I like the guy. He's not some nobody ... he was a 1st rounder for a reason. And he gets open a ton. He just drops some that he shouldn't.

    If we're bringing him back at a price that...

    Only elite WRs are worth paying for. Supply/demand for average-to-good WRs makes it a buyers' market. If Nelson won't take a cheap deal, there's probably a decent replacement to be found (or ride...

    I'd be willing to cut costs elsewhere on the offense, just to make sure the OL stays decent, yet still free up enough money to help the D. It's why I'm not bullish on re-signing Nelson. An offense...

    The Raiders have been trying to do just that for years now.

    Another thing to note is that Ferrell is the same age in year 2 as Mack was in year 1. A comparison of age-23 seasons would be interesting. Yeah, we'd have liked the next superstar DL right out the...

    I'm okay with that *IF* the defensive guys who could help us are gone, and that the guy we pick enables us to cut an expensive veteran, thus freeing up money for the D.

    We all know what the goal...

    Unfortunately I don't think it'll ever go back. Too much money involved, and casual fans love the scoring. Hell even the fantasy football freaks are mostly focused on scoring.

    Either that or we have a bunch of guys who are essentially quality supporting cast types, but who need to ride shotgun to a stud pass rusher to free them up.

    Especially when you just had a pretty spotty rookie year. Sorry kid, you haven't earned the clout to be weighing in on QB decisions. Can you imagine DC saying, "man, we really need a deep threat in...

    It's not so much the vertical vs horizontal. It's the game managing decisions, as in when to be aggressive and when to be conservative. He had moments this year of going for it on 4th, and other...

    It won't be enough. No team wins giving up 30 a game. Most teams don't even manage to get anywhere near .500 doing that. An 8-8 record with this defense is far from typical.

    That's true. Perhaps then the approach should be to pursue the best pass rushers in free agency, and use the draft to replace some too-expensive vets that we can then cut.

    I can safely say we haven't had a SB-caliber defense since well before Carr. It's safe to say Carr is holding us back a hell of a lot less than that defense.

    And, I haven't checked on the last...
