  1. I hear ya. I was trying to poke fun more than anything. I do get the feeling they hope he will lock down a starting guard spot. By the end of training camp I'm sure he'll drop some weight. According to what others have said he did an admirable job in Buffalo. If he can keep his head on straight it might turn out to be a solid signing until they can groom a younger guy to take over.
  2. Just checked out some pictures from today's practice. I think we're making a big deal out of nothing. Looks like Incognito is hiding a beach ball under his jersey. Unless he miraculously gets into shape in the next month or so, I doubt the guy makes the final roster.
  3. I'm ok with it. Best case scenario he fills a need for a year or two and keeps it together. Worst case, he causes problems and gets cut. No harm, no foul. If I remember correctly, if the HC in Miami at the time of Incognito's transgressions, had control of his locker room, things would not have gotten so far out of hand. I don't follow Buffalo too much, but I believe he did ok there for a few years. But I could be wrong.
  4. Is Mayock on vacation or what? Don't they know this is what happens when Gruden is left alone? Seriously, Incognito is a brawler and loves football. That side of his personality is what Gruden probably likes. I'm sure they're just kicking the tires, then moving on til they find the right player(s).
  5. Chance Warmack has to have more upside than this guy right?
  6. Just my personal opinion, but they're all in on Jacobs. 1st round pick, very low miles. Gruden is going to use him, and he's gonna use him a lot! Richard and Washington and possibly Warren will be there to give him a rest. But mark my words now, Jacobs is going to get a ton of touches out of the gate and health permitting, all season long.
  7. Now that Crowell tore his Achilles yesterday, currently there is no one standing in Jacobs' way.
  8. Hidden gems at guard and TE are what I'm hoping for today.
  9. Come fantasy draft time, people will change their tune and I bet he will be a top 3 dynasty pick. Anyone not sold on Jacobs, watch some highlights, the guy literally ran over an Oklahoma DB like he wasn't even there.
  10. Man, tough crowd! Funny how this time of year we all become draft experts (not trying to be insulting, myself included). Here's what happened... The Giants and Skins front offices' were in cahoots. They were talking, clearly Williams knew Jones was Gettleman's guy. There was no need for the Skins to panic and try to jump the Giants to get Haskins. That's why Gruden or Mayock leaked the whole "Haskins moving up their draft board " thing. They knew Ferrell would be there at 15 and would much rather have taken him there. But the Skins weren't taking the bait. Why? Because GMs talk. Look back at the top 15 picks, it seemed very scripted. Everyone had a good idea what players teams had their eyes on. Now the debate between Ferrell and Allen is a whole different topic. I think in the long run (and hopefully short run) Ferrell will be the better overall NFL player than Allen will become.
  11. I like Abrams here. Or the corner out of Georgia, Baker.
  12. Was it a reach? Yeah probably. Maybe they couldn't find a trading partner. They obviously liked Ferrell more than Allen, so they went with their guy. Honestly, how many people watched Allen play at Kentucky? I'll admit, not me... I did watch Ferrell plenty of times and he stood out. Allen might be a one year wonder in Gruden and Mayocks opinion, who knows. Ferrell's body of work speaks for itself. Let's let it play out, DE is a position of need and they got the guy they liked. Could've been a lot worse...
  13. Exactly! Carr is our QB for one more year at least. AB would not have come to Oakland to play with a rookie QB. Could you believe the drama?
  14. I think all the QB talk is smokescreen. That 13 total sacks last year has to be addressed. They get an elite defender at 4. Mayock can't screw that up unless Gruden falls off his rocker and pulls rank on him. The back end of the 1st will be very interesting. There are so many directions they could go. TE, OL, DB, RB or trade back. The possibilities are virtually endless. Where's my popcorn?
  15. I see your point. But if they trade back in the middle of the first and are targeting guys like Hockinson and Fant at say....15 because the Skins want Haskins, I can live with that as long as they have a shot at defensive players like Ferrell, Wilkins or a top DB later in the 1st round.
  16. Yeah, if they truly are all fired up about Ed Oliver, I hope they trade down a couple spots and take him there instead of 4.
  17. A surprise pick for this organization would be making to the most sensible and safest pick at #4. The best defender available. That would surprise the crap outta me anyway.
  18. My mistake, I misread your post. I still don't think Gruden wants to spend a lot of money on pass rushers. Hes proven that.
  19. Two 1sts and a huge paycheck for a pass rusher!? Might as well have kept Mack.
  20. Mayock and Gruden are under so much pressure to hit on these draft picks. I have to think trading up to go after one specific player is too risky. They need those picks in the worst way to build the foundation of the the team and fulfill their vision. If they stay put, they should get an elite player at #4 and three potential starters at 24, 27 and 35. I don't think theres anyone in this draft worth trading up from the 4 spot.
  21. I know it's only April, but I can't see them winning a single game. Right now the schedule means nothing....
  22. I'm hoping it's all just pre draft smokescreen talk. Carr is a good QB, he's proven he can play. Give him some stability instead of changing OCs every year. An Oline he can trust again (playing with two rookie tackles was uncalled for IMO). A running game and some sort of defense that can stop opposing teams so he doesn't feel like they need to score 40+ points every week and I bet he becomes a solid starter in the mold of Rich Gannon or Alex Smith. I may be biased, I've always been a Carr backer. He's started from day one with some God-awful squads and has been a model citizen and hasn't complained publicly about it once. He's been subject to a couple complete rebuilds before the age of 30, a broken leg, broken back and has yet to even hit his prime. Let's give the kid a chance. All signs seem to point to Gruden sticking with Carr. All the AB and Carr "bonding" videos circulating, the signing of a veteran backup in Glennon. The acquisition of Trent Brown are solid hints they are still committed to building around him. If Bosa, Allen and Williams are gone by the time they pick at #4 I hope they can fleece a QB hungry team and trade back and compile more picks. There are so many holes on this roster, finding a QB is the least of this team's worries.
  23. Roberts was dropped like a quick slant over the middle, pun very intended.
  24. He was the only Raider to make it to the pro bowl for years in the mid to late 2000 and early teens.
