  1. Sorry, I didn't receive the memo, Sammy has upside?
  2. Navaroo Bowman to the rescue?
  3. It isn't the number of snaps I have issue with, it is the plays called. They pounding the chargers and go to a spread formation. WTF? IIRC Lynch had two or three runs from the spread that were stuffed. They also threw the ball to Lynch twice, with one bouncing off his hands and being INT. I do not get it.
  4. Tom, I disagree with the bolded. After the first two drives, when Lynch was averaging over 6 ypc from Carr taking the ball under center, they went away from the formation and giving the ball to Lynch. Richard came in and they ran plays from the spread. Lynch was used very sparingly the remainder of the first half. Then he was on the field for a few plays from the same formation in the second half, with mixed results. It was very strange to watch this unfold, I can only think of three reasonable reasons: 1. They are worried about Lynch wearing down 2. Lynch pulled himself out of the game 3. Dowling prefers to chuck the ball around the yard #1 does not seem valid at this point because if they do not start winning they will be eliminated soon. #2 is plausible, but I don't see indications of the Lynch tapping out during the game. Thus, #3 seems the most logical reason. I want to see the Raiders give the ball to Lynch at least 20 carries per game. If they do this, I think everything else will fall into place.
  5. I just don’t understand Lynch’s lack of touches. He rolled the Charger defense early in the game. But they went away from it. Richard comes in and they start runing plays from a spread formation. It just doesnt make sense to me. Is Lynch pulling himself out? It is so strange. Defense played pretty well, except for the end of the game. Penalties against the oline killed two promising drives.
  6. Didn’t watch the game but I am reminded of the Parcell’s line, “you are what your record says you are.” For the Raiders that meanss picking in the top half of the draft next year. I don’t care who they pick, just pick someone in the first round pick that contributes. If that is asking too much, then a round two pick that contributes.
  7. I am under the impression that the change was made at OC because JDR wanted to run more. It certainly hasn't manifested itself in Dowling's play calling thus far. I want to see the staff challenge the oline and get in a 21 personal and pound the rock! Stick Vanderoos at FB and play smash mouth.
  8. I agree with your main point: owners should know the league rules. But the reality is that maybe the other owner is in a lot of leagues with very different rules. Or maybe they have a very busy life and weren't paying as close attention as they should. Regardless, had they understood the rule they clearly wouldn't have offered the trade. This looks more like you are trying to take advantage of their ignorance. I think that is more egregious than the other owner not knowing the rules. And quitting the league because this issue makes you look even worse. But you do you.
  9. Damn, I misread the title. I thought Jermey Hill was getting suspended. I got excited for Mixon and Bernard. Looks like people are still arguing on the interwebs. I didn't know that was still a thing.
  10. I see the same thing. I think the staff is still figuring out how to use AA. I know this sounds strange but consider they didn't have him for 15 games LY. I don't think he will ever be a RB#! but if they figure out how to use him correctly I am still holding out hope for RB#2 numbers.
  11. I wish he would bring that kind of passion to his play on the field.
  12. Some questions I have: Where the hell is Jahid Ward hurt? Not 1 tackle or assist yesterday. Where the hell is Conely? What the hell happened to Cooper?
  13. I asked the same question about the hit on Crabtree in the Redskin game. That is the very definition of a defenseless receiver.
  14. Offensive line under performing again. Seems like Penn's play has dropped off after he got a raise.
  15. First, I admit I have very little knowledge about guns, but understand that some guns are easily modifiable to become automatic weapons. That said some steps we can take are: Prohibit the sale of automatic weapons and kits that allow weapons to be modified. I understand that that this isn't a complete solution and a gun can still be modified, but why make it so easy to get a hold of an automatic weapon. Stricter back ground checks (people with domestic violence records will be banned from buying guns). More mental health services. This means higher taxes and an investment in mental health institutions. It is estimated 1 in 5 people suffer from some sort of mental illness: https://www.nami.org/Learn-More/Mental-Health-By-the-Numbers This is not to suggest we start throwing people who are suffering from anxiety or depression in institutions, only that there be a resource for those severely affect with mental disorders. Require hand guns to be sold with this technology: https://smarttechfoundation.org/smart-firearms-technology/fingerprint-guns/ I think all these proposals are reasonable, but unfortunately the lobbyists will kill every single reasonable idea. Instead we get laws that make owning a silencer more lenient.
