    Ajayi?

That he was Ricky Dudley reincarnated as a RB...a nonsensical emotional and biased statement...he's wrong, has been from the day we drafted Jacobs.
    He brought up Dudley because neither guy produced big numbers in college, yet were still picked in the first round.

    I still think itís a tad early to go making blanket statements about rookies.

    Just as it was too early to label Jocobs a reach before he played a single down. I wasnt too keen on grabbing a RB in the 1st either, but it's looking like a great move.

    Blanket statements, yes. This fanbase has had little to cheer for over the last decade plus. Jacobs is living up to expectations and is one of the key factors the team is above .500 when so many thought we'd be 1-4 at this point in the season. He looks strong, shifty and has the best attitude. Very unlike players like Cooper, McClain, et al. You can see he is all in. He's currently the top cat for rookie of the year and he has compared favorably or above any Raider rookie running back in the past. Including the great Marcus Allen. I think it is safe, 6 weeks in going on seven, to say he is pretty good if not pretty damn good. IMO he is just getting warmed up. As far as Eric goes, it's his pie, he has to eat it. If the worm turns, then he can give us all a slice.

    If we get WRs and an average defense to go with this kid. Watch out. Check out #31

    Who we land as a DE? Do we make a big splash for a #1 WR by the trade deadline? Is Carr a franchise QB? Who will be our #1 in 2020?

    This kid is the reason to be optimistic about our future.

    This kid is a true positive for us. The O-Line and this kid is something we can build on. We just have to hit 2020 NFL Draft out of the park.

    Tell you something if this kids balls out today pushing through the level of pain he must be in right now in the most physical position in all sports with the way he runs. You all have to crown his toughness right this minute. The kids disproving the RB valuation data that I personally felt was undisputable. Tell me any of you want to see us go with Richard and Washington?
