  1. I had the exact same reaction to seeing Gruden and Mayocks reaction to the pick. I don't follow College ball at all, and my NFL draft 'preparation' is normally pretty light. Primarily reading up on the guys the Raiders could be targeting. So I'm not embarrassed to point out that the announcement of Arnette's name by Goddell was likely the very first time I heard his name. The immediate sense of "oh oh, I don't remember every hearing or reading this guys name" was washed away by the display of pure excitement by Mayock.
  2. A few random thoughts as I play catchup on a very active discussion (Love to see it! - Welcome back boys!) I'm a Carr believer. Maholmes and the KC Offence, as a whole is a very risky measuring stick. Outside of Lamar + Ravens who will push them if they can continue what they started last year, there are no other teams like them. They are the teams you need to beat, no question. But saying a player isn't good enough because he isn't Maholmes is basically instantly writing off 30+ QBs in the league. Same goes for the measurements against Brady in his prime. If Tua is there at 12 and Mayock has him as the Best Player Available then he must take him. Not a measurement of Carr, it's a measurement of Tua verse the next guy on the Raiders board.
  3. I hope the NFL makes considerations for the clock given the logistical changes required to deal with the covid situation. They absolutely will have flexibility in extending the clock and it not affecting viewership. Like already mentioned, we are starving for anything that isn't covid related, or a re-run from 3+ years ago. Although, admittedly I can watch any John Candy or Steve Martin movie over and over - am I right?! Maybe they could institute a pause type function - where each team can pause their clock for a specific period of time to allow final trade talks to occur? Give each team 3 to use for the full draft? I don't know, brainstorming here a bit. Or, maybe two teams needs to be in agreement to pause a clock, meaning that both teams are serious about making a trade work? It won't be like past years where there is a bat-phone in each room that can be muted and all the teams powers are centrally located to make a quick decision.
  4. This signing surprised me. Figured only one of Richard or Washington would be extended. The contract likely doesn't mean that Richard is a Raider over the next two years. Just figured that they'd keep Jacobs + FA + Washington + Crowell (?) + Ingold
  5. Of all the stuff we've been put through as fans, adding Brady would top the list of stupid.
  6. I love the new regime. Find talent, and extend them. Instead of waiting for a competitive FA market to risk losing a player or driving up the cost - both this deal and Waller's specifically. Treat the players like gentleman and move forward. It will only help bring talent to the table when FAs are evaluating offers from various clubs and they can look to Oakland to see they will be treated fairly.
  7. If you haven't seen the footage of the hail mary that passes through the hands of Ateman and off the face mask of Doss, go seek it out... That 6 second clip is the summary of this game and season; back up players pushed into a must win moment which passes through their hands and adds insult to injury. The only missing element from final moment in Oakland was not having the ref's call offence pass interference on Ateman for climbing on the back of Doss.
  8. I think it only becomes an issue if they weren't reporting his ability or inability to practice... But I'm far from an expert on that area.
  9. Great post. Can you find a means to shorten it and blast it all over the Raiders Twitter to quiet all the Carr talk? Thanks!
  10. For his 3 penalties a game? Joking/half-joking. I haven't been impressed with him, but maybe I had unfair expectations for that signing.
  11. Bang on by my tracking ... Pittsburgh/Oakland/Chicago all have the same record. Those 3 picks land in spots 11, 12, and 13. I don't recall the tie break rules before it gets to a coin toss. But that Pittsburgh pick is currently owned by Miami.
  12. If the Jets are serious about listening to offers for Williams, I hope that Mayock pushes the issue a bit and throws out an offer both both Robby Anderson and Leonard Williams... Anderson/Williams and a 2021 late pick for 2 2020 3rds! Do it!
  13. I think Mayock and Gruden really like Mullen and Lawson. And that they feel the delta in on the field production between current-Conley in a Guenther system vs. either of those two aren't worth a.) sticking with Conley, or b.) resigning him as this 5th year approaches. Pull a 3rd pick out instead of straight losing him. And open the roster spot. But... making a play for a bigger name and need the extra 3... well geez, now you have my mind racing on possibilities!
  14. So... Do you think he travels with Oakland to Houston this weekend, but just stays there? ha!
