    I can't deny my true feelings any longer.

    Rightly or wrongly, it's time for me to come clean with the Raiders Nation: I hate Matt Giordano

    If I have to see this clown running beside another ball carrier as if he was trying to have a conversation with him rather than make a tackle, I am going to need a pre-screener. Make no mistake, we are the ONLY NFL team that willing to provide him solace. Let's see, he can't tackle, can't cover, he's old, he isn't any sort of a veteran leader, and on top of all that, he's the only POS I have ever known to consistently fake injuries on the field when he is beaten. If we took Stuart Schweigert, aged him and shortened him, that's Matt Giordano.

    Couldnt we have signed a veteran player sitting at home for the league minimum a few weeks back? Yes.

    We've got so many holes it's not funny! The plan is to make it to the end of the season and regroup.

    You might not want to watch the rest of the year then, because he aint going no where.

    Me... I kinda wish we had a defensive line and linebackers capable of stopping the run every once in a while so our safety wouldn't have to chase running backs 50 yards downfield on a regular basis.

    no reason to hide those feelings, the guy is an average backup, but no starter. he's late on coverages every time and his lack of tackling is embarrassing. Like a poster above said, this roster is in for another overhaul.

    I concur, you can't freaking tell me everyone else on the team is worse than GiordO'NO! I've seen blind people with more vision than him! I've seen players make bigger hits in wheelchair basketball!

    I am not sure why anyone thinks next year will be any different then this year...keeping the same coaches as many on the forum believe we are going to do, not having much cap room to pick up free agents, only one draft(with a couple picks missing), not being able to attract any legit player to come and play in Oakland unless you over pay them (see reason #2). The sad reality is that this may take a lot longer then 2-3 seasons to fix if at all. Theres no guarantee that this GM and HC can correct this.

    At best he's a situational backup or strictly a special teams player. An NFL starter he clearly is not.

    Next years team will be very different because there is going to be a major purge of ****ty and overpaid players. The only thing that worries me about next year is the possibility of Knapp and Hoffman returning to the staff.

    Another player that has no business being an NFL player. He wouldn't start for 31 NFL teams but of course only for the Raiders!!

    How does his play equate to "average?" He is at least far below average.

    You are not alone.

    He's an appalling football player.
