Raider Gridiron / Re: Screw it...
« on: March 21, 2019, 12:48:15 PM »
I just placed a deposit for psl/season tickets for Vegas.

It’s a 4-5 hour drive but screw it. I’m going!

I’ve waited all my life for the Raiders to build a new home and I’m going to be a part of it dammit.

Maybe the wife won’t hate me when she finds out I’m buying her a seat as well..

Screw it...I’m in

Love this reckless abandon. Only live once brother.  :cheers

We'll see how this pans out, but it's always good to have a bit on 'mental' on your team.

We are setting ourselves up nicely for the draft.

With three top edge rushers available, we'll be able to draft BPA and for need with our first pick, assuming the Cards take a QB, or anyone who trades up above us takes a QB.

After that, I think it really depends on the player. I'd rather draft for need, but if there is an absolute stud available you have to consider whether it's worth passing on them.

Jay Ajayi reminds me a lot of Lynch Not sure it's efficient to have both of them might as well just roll with Lynch who knows the program and as in Oakland guy.

We've got to sign or draft somebody that's for sure and I'll keep Richard over Washington any day.

Totally agree. That’s why I mentioned giving consideration to Ajayi if Lynch doesn’t return. Ajayi is also considerably younger.

#4 - KICKER.... Only joking...Edge pass rusher.
#24 - MLB
#27 - CB
#35 - RB

From what I’m led to believe, there are three top Edge prospects. As long as someone above us takes a QB/Other then we’re good.

You can’t hide money.....

That is one hell of a signing pick..... :lol: :lol:

As long as we have someone younger as the primary back, I think Lynch can still fill a role. Limit his touches, but bring him in late in the game when the D is tiring. He still runs hard.

Yes! I was hoping we’d bring him back. Solid Special Teamer. A real return threat.

So, what are we all thinking regarding the RB situation?

If Lynch comes back for one final year I'd be ok with that. Martin I wasn't so bothered about, but looking at his stats for last year, they are actually a lot better than I realised. He ended up with 723 yards, which considering he only became the main starter after Lynch got injured. Either way, I hope they give Chris Warren III fair consideration this off-season too. As for Richard and Washington, are we still going to continue carrying both of them? If Lynch and Martin don't return, I think Jay Ajayi might be worth a look, presuming he's back to full strength.

The only other time Carr has had the same system two years in a row (Musgrave year two), he lit up the league. He won't be going anywhere till they see him in year two of this system with all his shiny new toys.

I feel like I'm watching someone showing how great life is with their new girlfriend... just to piss of their Ex.

Are you watching Ben? Derek's my new sexy QB... :lol:

He'll be on the Browns within a few months...

Now, can someone plant a few tons of cocaine in Mahome's basement, then call the feds? Lets see if we can decimate their entire squad.

Raider Gridiron / Re: SCALE OF 1 TO 10....10 BEING THE HIGHEST

My confidence goes all the way to ELEVEN.

I make the same mistake every year... I buy into all the hype, then my dreams are shattered by week three, when reality shows up. ;D

I do agree we need to upgrade at LB, but if the secondary can up their game, the rest of the D might not be quite so woeful. Conley and Joseph made some positive strides in the latter half of last season. Hopefully the addition of Joyner will tighten that group up even more. If we pick up one of the top edge rushers in the draft, this D might be a lot closer than we think, and I’ve not even mentioned our other first round picks.

Wow, another great addition!!! Smart move in our division. How much cap space do we have left??? ;D

Are we seeing the Vegas effect starting to kick in already? So much for the theory that players won’t want to play for us.  8)

The money is going fast!!!  We can still cut Penn and save 7 million.  I can't find anything updated with today's moves yet.

After the AB move and the other players we resigned we were down to 58 million at the start of the day.  I'm guessing were down around 42 million now with the Brown move.

I’d like to see Cook re-signed, but that’s starting to look less and less likely. I reckon someone will show him the money.
