  1. Good move by the Jets, as he never really fit the new blocking scheme - zone blocking. He was a man on man destroy the guy in front of him guard.( most dominating year in 2016 .. Osemele to keep his salary and fit the zone blocking scheme is down to 297 from 330. (Probably in the best shape of his life. Easy can up to 310-315 i know where the Jets will be running behind. As long as jets aren't a zone blocking scheme they will come out ahead in this trade..
  2. Yea it really had adverse effect on Michael Crabtree career. Everyone thought his career was finished when he left the 49ers. He played very well the first couple years with the Raiders( revitalized his career) , and was Derek Carr go to Wr.( never was Amari Cooper despite being the better talent). I really expect the Raiders to make a run at L Bell tomorrow. You Add L Bell at RB, Antonio Brown at Wr,and they retain Te Jared Cook . You have some serious weapons , before you even get to the draft.( they will get another 3 and 5 draft pick by trading back.
  3. Yes you probably won't find another pass rusher like K Mack but the Raiders don't want to have one guy , but a whole bunch of pass rushers . ( keep rotating fresh pass rushers) The Raiders finished with pitiful 13 sacks last year, but all the guys they drafted last year can rush the passer.( those numbers increase a lot in year two for those rookies( Pj Hall, Arden Key, and M Hurst). Was a lot like K Mack first season he finished with paltry 4 sacks( saw the pressure he was getting just didn't finish ) . That what you saw from last year rookies. The Raiders could draft a pass rushing De at four, or they might wait later in the first , and trade back to take the Te Hockenson.
  4. The Raiders made him the highest paid Wr, Gruden is going expect Antonio Bryant to do exactly that. Don't be surprised if they draft Hollywood . Marquise " Hollywood " Brown . Antonio Brown cousin.
  5. Probably the Raiders going to Vegas ( No state income tax state) was very appealing to Antonio Brown. I'm glad the Raiders are leaving California high tax state- hard to compete against states that have no state income tax.
  6. You don't get it. J Gruden loves veteran players , over rookie players every time. There was no accident that when he left the Raiders the first time coaching the Raiders - they had the oldest roster. He wants Antonio Brown to be the veteran to show the young Wr's how's it's done. See Jerry Rice the Goat and after practice was constantly working on his routes.- Youngsters see that dedication from the best, and it stays with you. He will always have mixture of old and young.
  7. How is there any risk here. The team won four games- can't go much much lower. The Raiders are paying him top dollar, and should get him on his best behavior. The draft choice they lost will be recoup on trade back somewhere in the draft . I wouldn't have been happy if they gave up any of there first four picks( 3 number 1, and their second). Those four picks I'm counting getting starters . Throw in Antonio Brown that five starters right off the bat. Raiders bring back 33 year old M Lynch that would be the stupidest thing they could do, time to get a young fulltime RB. Raiders second dumbest thing they could do- if they get rid of Lg k Osemele. Raiders have bigtime hole at Rt . I move k Osemele to Rt - great shape now 297 expect him be 305-310 ( down from 330) 35 7/8 arm length 36 Bp ( played left tackle half a year for the Ravens)
  8. Gruden is a terrible general manager, not a bad coach. ( just too conservative , and very boring offense) . actually last year draft on defense might have been Raiders best . Paul Guenther Raiders Dc probably picked the players for his defense.( Pj Hall, Arden Key, M Hurst, an Cb nick Nelson). Actually excited about M Mayock . Will Gruden listen to him, or will he be Gruden fall guy. ( see Reggie Mckenize) . K Gruden has the biggest ego. It’s never his fault , but someone else. You are the head of the organization time to accept that responsibility.
  9. K Mack is no cancer . One of the hardest working and most respected player in the Raiders locker room . He just wanted to get paid the most money he could. ( Hey it’s America what’s wrong with that). A Cooper was traded for the simple reason he has The same agent as K Mack. Gruden didn’t want a repeat of last year this year. ( Cooper isn’t going to be contempt to play under the fifth year option. Look at Gruden history with holdouts . He has no patience. K Johnson in Tampa bay. K Mack in Oakland. You’re a player you want to get out all you have to do is hold out. Sooner or later he’s going to move you. Gruden probably saw as great as K Mack was, it never transformed to the whole defense. Again had no problem with him deciding to move on K Mack. Just it should have been done during last year draft , and not right before the season started. i love last year Raider draft. The defense players they drafted will be very good players. Looking for a big jump in their numbers there second season in the league. ( reminds me K Mack first year). He was very close but couldn’t finish. That was Raider players on defense last year.
  10. I never wanted J Gruden to be hired the second time. I know who J Gruden is. J Gruden prefers older veterans every time to young players.( when your rebuilding you want majority players to be young. J Gruden offense is very conservative , and boring. J Gruden is the last person you want picking your teams Qb. He has never developed a young Qb in his career. He doesn’t have the patience to go through a young Qb making mistakes. That young Qb better be mentally tough, and be able to handle verbal abuse. Gruden is so bad picking Qb he actually tried to convince the Raiders to draft an J Manziel . The Raiders took Carr. One of many Qb he liked that failed in NFL. Here is my problem with his decisions last year. 1. It’s okay to trade K Mack- you trade him during the 2018 draft and not right before the season started. ( basically threw awayv2018 season). They didn’t get anyone that could help them in 2018. 2Raiders have the premier interior offense line in football. Lg K Osemele , C R Hudson and Rg Gabe Jackson they are power offense line -their speciality is man on man blocking scheme destroying the defender in front of them. You go with zone blocking scheme that R Hudson only fits. Tom Cable is a moron . I know third rounder Rt B Parker was never suppose to play last year but due to injury started all year. Still it’s looks bad I believe Tony Romo could see that B Parker was tipping off every time if it’s a run or pass. ( offensevline coach should have spotted that) K Osemele to fit the new scheme has dropped 30 pounds , and is in the best shape of his career. You’re thinking of cutting him, and create another hole. Yet you want to bring back 33 year old M Lynch- time to get a young back.( okay its a Pr move as it’s their last year in Oakland, but football is a business. You have to go with players that give you best chance to be successful. The Raiders actually did a very good job drafting on defense in the draft last year- because Gruden didn’t pick them.
  11. The Browns just traded Kevin Zeitler to the Giants for De O Vernon .
  12. I don'twant him. Only want 4 freegents. 1. Zadarius Smith 2. CJ Mosely 3. Deone Bucannon 4. Chris Conley or Tyrell Williams
  13. The Cardinals aren't getting a number 1 for Rosen. Best offer they got was third round supposedly. Maybe they get a second rounder.
  14. Anthony Barr after a very promising rookie year, has been garbage . The Jets sign him you will have buyer remorse . He has gotten worse every year in coverage. The Viking never considered him one of their key re- signings.
  15. If J Gruden was really interested in Kyle Murray , would he make his intentions known. No he would be hyping every defense lineman . He's doing that so someone jumps in front of him, and a player he's really wants drop to four. Only the cardinals( no one drafting before them) can tell people who they want, as every other team sending out smoke signals. Anyone who believes what any teams is saying now is a fool.
  16. It depends on the offense line. As good as any RB is, they still need an offense line to run behind. If you don't upgrade the offense line, you are sorta defeating the purpose of investing that much money in the RB.
  17. The Raiders aren't trading up. They have too many needs to lose any draft picks. Raiders drafted three defense lineman 2rd DT Pj Hall , 3rd De Arden Key , and fifth round DT Maurice Hurst and all of them will be bigtime players. The Raiders need definitely pass rushing De. I expect them to get one in Fa( my personal choice would be Zadarius Smith) and one in the draft. Even though Raiders are pretty good shape at DT they will not pass on Q Williams if he is on the board at 4. Montez Sweat at 4 ( Williams is gone) or another pass rushing De with one of their two other first picks- will fill their need .( if Q Williams is there). The Raiders will just sit at four , and see who drops to them.
  18. Actually coming from high tax states like New York, New Jersey, and Californa , it's going to cost that team a lot more to sign a player, than it does a team that has no state income tax. It's all about how much money a player is bringing home. The point there is on paper your team might have the most money to play with in free agency, but is that really the case.( almost competing at a disadvantage) . For that reason I'm glad my team moving to Vegas . Just became cheaper to sign players.
  19. The Giants trade # 6 pick , and OBJ for the 49ers number 2 pick. That would be great for both our teams , if the two Qbs go off the board at one and two. Jets take Bosa. The Raiders would take Q Williams.
  20. Again he put those stats up in a new offense, injury ravaged offense line - 53 sacks they gave up to.( A Qb very hard to get to) , and took his best two Wr's away. Not to mention very young defense that couldn't stop anyone. Everyone entitled to their opinion , and we will see if your opinion changes after your defense plays against him this year.
  21. Carr isn't going anywhere. He still only 27 years old, and R Gannon was 31 years old when the Raiders signed him in free agency. Here is a Gruden fact. He prefers older veteran players , over young players. It isn't easy be a rookie Qb , and playing for J Gruden. You better be mental tough, and be able to handle the verbal abuse that come with it. He doesn't have the patience to go through the process of developing a young Qb. D Carr if he didn't get hurt in 2016 had chance to be the league Mvp if he didn't get hurt. The Raiders brought a new offensive coordinator in in 2017, and had new one in 2018. It takes at least two years in the same system before you see the results. Carr in the second season in Gruden's offense will only get better. Numbers were pretty good in 2018, but will be much better in 2019. The Raiders have problems , but Qb is the least of them. Some of the things hat make no sense. K Osemele is 30 in the best shape of his career. Yet the Raiders want to trade him, but you want to bring back M Lynch to be the main RB at 33. I don't care if it's a Pr move( he's from Oakland ) it's time to do what's best for the organization, Get a young RB to be the main ball carrier.
  22. Carr isn't going anywhere. He still only 27 years old, and R Gannon was 31 years old when the Raiders signed him in free agency. Here is a Gruden fact.

The Raiders brought a new offensive coordinator in in 2017, and had new one in 2018. It takes at least two years in the same system before you see the results. ( feel comfortable) Carr in the second season in Gruden's offense will only get better. Numbers were pretty good in 2018, but will be much better in 2019. The Raiders have problems , but Qb is the least of them. Some of the things that make no sense. K Osemele is 30 in the best shape of his career.

  23. Raiders moved Amari Cooper because he has the same agent as Khalil Mack . Expect a holdout from Amari Cooper till the Cowboys give him an extension.( not going to play under the fifth year option. The Cowboys gave up a first rounder , and they have to find a way to give him his extension,
  24. With the third pick the New York Jets select Lb Josh Allen. I guess you aren't going to be happy than. Bosa should be the first defensive player to come off the board.
  25. Here is my prediction the top 4 go. 1. Arizona - Qb Kyle Murray 2 49ers - M Sweat - has the game tape to support the combine performance. 3. Jets Nick Bosa ( worth not picking again till the third round - no way the Jets trade back with him on board 4 Raiders - Q Williams
