    Tevin Jenkins did not play right tackle the entire season. During his entire college career he has bounced back and forth between the two tackle positions. Some scouts see him as a Guard. WalterFootball has him rated as the no.9 tackle and could very well be a 2nd round pick. Mayfiel is rated at no. 7 and is expected to be drafted late in the 1st round.

    Kwiatkoski was pretty good. I like him a lot. Morrow would be depth and perhaps Littleton is better under the new DC. Yannick is not a linebacker, I agree.

    Sorry, I'm not impressed with Littleton. And the others were not good in pass coverage. We need at least one LB that can be a game changer.

    I just saw the Raiders "I Can Breathe" social media post. Everyone needs to be fired and the team should either be sold, or FORCED to change their mascot to something other than the Raiders. Leave us old fans some dignity and end it now. Go continue on as the Las Vegas Wranglers or whatever the hell they want to call themselves. The Raiders chapter of this sports franchise is done. Close the book, turn out the lights, mummify and entomb the remains.

    You read Marks response on that. Donít overreact. He owned his mistake, explained how it happened, and discussed needing to be better informed to avoid making a mistake like that again. He took responsibility. Canít ask for a better response than that.

    I know Mark's heart was in the right place. But someone should have sat down with him and helped him refine his message. The last thing you want at a time like this, on a day like this, is to stumble out of the gate. Sadly, this organization has a habit of doing just that, despite its best intentions.

    Itís Twitter itís not meant to be a refined message. Itís literally word diarrhea. Yes he could have spent time and crafted a formula response and in todayís day and age basically everything out out there needs to be refined as we have individuals like you who respond the way you did. It wasnt a good look but his response was far more important than anything else he could have said on the events of today. But we really donít need to get into weeds on this. I come here for sports.

    I'm surprised no one started a thread on "I can breathe".

    This team will never be a champion as long as Mark is leading.

    You can draft 3 Micah's , we still are not going anywhere.

    He couldn't shine his father's shoes. He lacks the competitive spirit and the intellectual know how, that his father brought to the table.

    He did something his father failed to do. Pulled off successfully moving his team and building a new stadium that will generate a boat load of money. Heís shown to be savvy on business side but his football skills arenít there. Few will match up to AL in that space. Hes open and candid. He may have messed up with Jon but heís doing the right things even if they havenít worked out and mostly stays out of football items. Heís not perfect but heís not close to as bad as many make him out to be.

    Wow, not that is one myopic viewpoint. Mark's version of success is putting money in who's pockets???His own? The casino's? What does that have to do with the Raider's, did it result in more interest from free agents? How has it improved our team? It hasn't.

    He is open and candid? How does that benefit the team?

    He has been the boss for almost 11years, his performance has been abysmal.

    If they go 7-10 this year, many of the "pro Mark" contingent, will be singing a different song.

    If you perpetually lose, there is a good chance you are a loser.

    Change is needed. (eventually)
