  1. There's no way this can happen can it????? Brown said multiple times he still wants to play football and is hoping the league will absolve him of any punishment from separate allegations of sexual assault andburglary with battery by the time 2020 free agency begins on March 18. "I just want to be on a team that protects my well-being," he said, confirming reports that he's recently spoken with Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden and "hopefully" will be in touch with the Raiders about a reunion in the near future.
  2. I have Shenault ahead of everyone else. I also think he would be a great fit for Gruden's offense. He's tough, physical and makes contested catches. The big concern with him is health and he doesn't have top end speed, but it's still good.
  3. I'd be happy with Lamb or Jeudy at 12, but I think there is a chance both will be off the board. I hope not, but Cards and Jets could both take WRs. I wouldn't rule out the Jags taking a WR either. If Simmons is there at 12 I think I would run the pick up and take WR at 19. If Simmons is gone and Lamb or Jeudy are there then take WR at 12 and someone like Kenneth Murray at 19.
  4. I don't think it's a great idea, but i would prefer him over Carr.
  5. TOM BRADYQB, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders will pursue Tom Brady if he doesn't re-sign with the Patriots. The Raiders are the second team connected to Brady after NFL Network linked the Chargers as a "legitimate option." The interest isn't surprising — Brady was spotted with Raiders owner Mark Davis in Las Vegas last month — but whether they can lure Brady from New England "remains uncertain." The Patriots are willing to pay Brady in excess of $30 million to stay in New England, so money won't be the only deciding factor of where Brady plays next season. Brady is expected to make a decision on his future well before the free-agent period begins on March 18.
  6. I don't think Simmons will be there, but that guy is so good he could play LB or some sort of hybrid role. I think Lamb is on par with Jeudy and would be all in favor of drafting him if he is there at 12. LOVE Kenneth Murray and I think he is worth the 19th pick. You basically hit all the guys I am hoping are in play for the Raiders, except for the QBs. I don't like Herbert, Eason, Fromme and I haven't seen enough of Love to have a good opinion on him.
  7. I don't believe this. Still does not mean the Raiders don't get screwed more than other teams.
  8. Crabtree's best year was with the Niners, but Carr did use him pretty well. Cook was good with the Raiders and Carr utilized him well. He also spent one year in GB where he only played in 10 games and one year with the Saints where he had less yards, but more TDs than his last season with the Raiders. Neither Cook or Crabtree had a huge season with the Raiders. Carr does not elevate the team. He is bad under pressure, refuses to throw the ball down the field and gives up on plays far too often. I'm ready to move on.
  9. New stadium is supposed to be ready. Would be another year in Oakland if it wasn't ready.
  10. Pretty sure that was going to be your response no matter what that link contained.
  11. Las Vegas Raiders is going to take some time to get used to. Can't remember the last time I was this excited/optimistic about the next season right after the conclusion of the current one. Happy New Year to all Raider Nation.
  12. The problem with Riveron is you never know what you're going to get, no consistency. Sometimes he upholds calls based on there not being 100% evidence to change and other times he changes them based on what likely happened even if there is not 100% visual proof. He is a complete disaster. Really a disgrace that he was not fired or reassigned after last year.
  13. I do not want Herbert. I think Jalen Hurts would be perfect for Gruden's offense.
  14. Overall I thought Gruden did a very good job this year and he is still a very competent coach. Excited for him to be taking us to Vegas. He seems to have a very good relationship with Mayock and they killed the last draft. Not sure why the decision was awful. Better days ahead.
  15. Carr just spiked the ball into the ground on 3rd and 3 because he didn't like the way the play was going. Today is a good example of his numbers looking pretty good, but the team has 3 points through 3 quarters and watching the game he has not been very good.
