    The Raiders' rosters is MUCH improved

    Now that we've been through the initial free agency and seeing the results of the draft, I can't help but think that the Raiders will be MUCH improved this year. How much?

    It's hard to tell if...

    More smokescreens

    More smokescreens. . .

    The Redskins reportedly are now interested in getting into the top 5 to grab a QB. Could be the Skins really are interested in moving up (makes sense), or it could be the...

    The smokescreens

    I've been following the draft since 1967. The last few years, I've seen so many smokescreens put out by teams, to downgrade players they really want and to make other teams believe they will take...

    2019 Draft Predictions

    A couple of weeks out, I am willing to make the following predictions about our 2019 draft:

    1) We WILL add at least one more second or third round pick (maybe even multiple picks) by trading back...

    Good signing. So far, he has less than 900 rushes, which is about a third of what Marshawn has on him - 2400+. Plus, he's only 26.

    For his career, Crowell has averaged 4.3 yards a carry, same as...

    Antonio Brown - 6th round pick
    Tyrell Williams - undrafted
    Trent Brown - 7th round


    To make it, these guys had to work hard, study hard and overcome a lot of odds to make it on NFL teams.

    Brown played left tackle for the Patriots, who won the Super Bowl. He manhandled edge rushers for Chiefs and Rams. If Miller improves to the point that he beats him to protect the blindside, then...

    Winning in today's NFL is simply an exercise in great coaching and making the best, most efficient use of your cap and the players you bring in under the cap.

  9. And Brown costs $21 million against Steelers cap

    Look at the cap hit the Steelers are taking this year -- for a player who isn't even on their team. That's like one-ninth of the cap for someone who won't even play for them.

    Like I said in the...
  10. Gaining a lot more respect for Raiders' moves

    Looking at how the Raiders handled the Khalil Mack situation compared to how the Steelers handled Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, the Raiders look like geniuses.

    Did they see players like Mack...

    The front loaded bonuses

    Another example of why Steelers are a dumpster fire.

    They front loaded Brown's contract with guaranteed money and bonuses. As a result, their cap hit this year, even though they have unloaded...

    Biggest dumpster fire in NFL

    It's gotta be he Steelers. Le'Veon Bell holds out, is released. Steelers get nothing.

    Antonio Brown quits on team and is now killing trade options for the Steelers, either demanding teams play...

  14. I'm not sold on Haskins, but someone will be

    He's the QB everyone wanted to come out, other than Herbert. I watched him early in the bowl game and he looked shaky. He turned it around, though, into a very solid performance.

    The truth is any player is available on any team -- for the right price

    It comes down to this. Would the Raiders be a better team long-term with Derek Carr, or a better team with the potential haul and cap space trading Carr would bring?

    With Carr, we will have about...
  16. Treatment of Steelers vs. Treatment of Raiders

    So, Leveon Bell held out, the Steelers stood strong and now Bell will be a free agent. What did the Steelers get for Bell? Zilch. At best, they will get a third round compensatory pick, maybe a...
  17. Yep he's grown up some

    I can tell you with 100% certainty that these stories were told to me. It is not bullshit. Maybe he has grown up some, after getting married, but my God man. To have a teammate say that he's an...
  18. Insight into Ben Roethlisberger/Antonio Brown situation

    Don't be surprised if Antonio Brown is traded. I would like to share some insight I've gleaned about Ben Roethlisberger over the past few years.

    Best case scenario for the Raiders

    The Raiders currently are slated to pick second in the 2019 NFL Draft, which is a great position. Teams know that the Cardinals won't be selecting a QB, having picked a QB last year.

    This means...

    I was really down on Carr after the first four weeks. Now I see that it is taking him time to learn the system and he's playing so much better now, even with the limited offensive weapons at his...

    The good, the bad and the ugly

    Yes, we won on Sunday, against a rookie QB and a team that is clearly one of the league's worst.

    Despite playing a terrible team, it took a couple of penalties on Arizona at key times, three...
