If the Raiders can fortify the offensive line a little more and add another piece, this offense truly has the potential to jump from one of the league’s worst in 2018 to one of the league’s better offenses in 2019.


This is 100% true.  We might already be there.

If ever we nedd DC to step up his game..... I'm thinking AB brings it out in him. We all saw how Gru was on DC's ass when he messed up. AB might be the guy who connects with him.

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.

 :lol:

Thought the same thing when I read it,.

Because it's "just" a word.  ;D

I can't remember exactly how I felt when AD hired Gru 1. I do however remember how pissed I was when he was traded. I remember how good we were.

I got that that 2001 feeling again. And it feels good. So good in fact I'm taking off work to be home to watch the 1st round of the draft.

I'll be hanging out here opening draft nite. Anyone up for a draft nite party?

Ohhh  I forgot. 

I'm at about an 8 that we are 7-9 or better. 

When you think about the upgrades and how we played last year its easy to find another 4 wins however our schedule based on last year is brutal. 

We averaged 18.1 points per game.  That ranked us 28th in the league.  If adding AB and the rest of the upgrades gets us just one more TD per game we would be ranked 12th in the league in scoring.

Look how close NFL teams are from best to worst.  Even a small improvement could be huge in the W/L column.

Looking at the D in the same way we were 32nd in scoring allowing 29.2 points per game.  Simply stopping one TD per game would take us to 15th.

I know its not that easy but with the upgrades we've already done along with the Draft and other FA's were going to sign and Gruden/Carr/Gunther in year 2 I don't see why we can't even improve more than 7 pts in pts scored and pts given up. 

Coming off of a 4 win season I would consider going 8-8 a HUGE success.  Anything less will be a embarrassing after making these moves.

Tyrell Williams and the Raiders recently agreed to a 4 year, $44.3 million contract. On the surface, this seems like a lot for the Wide Receiver who never has 70 receptions in a season and only has one season over 750 yards (1,059 yards in 2016). But, a deeper look tells a different story for the 6’4? speedster (Williams is a legitimate 4.4 guy in the 40-yard dash).

First, let us examine the contract.  We all know that NFL contracts are not what the seam.  Very rarely does a player extract full value from a contract.  So, in delving a little deeper, we realize that it turns out to be a 1 year, $10.1 million contract. The Raiders can cut Williams after the 2019 season with no dead cap hit.  So, there is no real risk here. With the Raiders current salary cap situation, this is a no-brainer.

If Williams takes the next step and becomes the legitimate #2 Wide Receiver that the Raiders need opposite Antonio Brown, they can keep him beyond 2019 at a very reasonable contract. If not, you free up that money to take another shot next offseason. That’s a win-win to me.

Now, let’s take a look at the on-field impact. He’s played with future Hall of Fame Quarterback Philip Rivers and had varied levels of success. The Chargers have always run an offense centered around wide receiver Keenan Allen and the running game.

Williams was treated as a one-trick pony, the deep threat, while Allen and others feasted underneath. Guess what?  It worked. Keenan Allen is one of the best wide receivers in the league, coupling elite route running with excellent hands. Do you know who else is an elite route runner with excellent hands? Yes, you guessed it. Antonio Brown.

Williams is the perfect compliment to Brown. His size/speed combination will constantly keep opposing safeties deep. You just have to respect his downfield talent. If you play him in man coverage with a cornerback, there just flat out aren’t many that can match him in terms of both size and speed.

But, if you keep safety help, you are going to open things up for the best Wide Receiver in the league.  This sounds like an offensive coordinator’s dream. Head coach Jon Gruden and offensive coordinator Greg Olson must be licking their chops with the possibilities.

Let’s take a quick look at Antonio Brown over the last few years.  His Average Depth of Target (aDOT) was 10.4 yards in 2016, 13.5 in 2017, and 11.2 in 2018.  His average output for those seasons?  103 catches for 1367 yards and 12 Touchdowns.

Yes, he had Ben Roethlisberger at the helm instead of Derek Carr, but the drop off shouldn’t be that significant.  Brown has flat out dominated the middle areas of the field throughout his career, and the Raiders have just added the piece that will keep those areas unclogged. Brown has been thoroughly excited since the trade that brought him to Oakland. This move can only excite him even more.

If the Raiders can fortify the offensive line a little more and add another piece, this offense truly has the potential to jump from one of the league’s worst in 2018 to one of the league’s better offenses in 2019. Only time will tell the whole story, but Tyrell Williams will be a key piece in writing that story.
