    Who won the Mack trade….

    <So who won the trade? Not the Raiders, who had draft picks and cap room but couldn't capitalize. Not the Bears, who lost cap room and couldn't put an offense together. The winner was Mack. He got paid.>

    Yep, Mack won, Bears have had to do 2 restructures over 4 years to try to stay competitive.....Raiders piss poor drafting.

    Agreed, who was after Jihad Ward....they had no intention of giving Lat Murray a 2nd deal.....freaking Henry was sitting there for the taking.

    The Raiders got the better deal with the draft picks and reduction in their cap. Just because they wasted most of the draft picks and cap money doesn't mean the deal wasn't a good one. It just means that they made bad choices with the opportunities they received. They could have gotten much better results in a different reality.

    YEP,its similar to when we passed on adrian peterson and calvin johnson and then tried to replace those fvck ups with dmacbustass and dem hands bad (dmac/heyward bay) we also fvcked up by not trading down for chris johnson that yr to get more picks instead we go with chicken legs

    MACK is the only one who WON, financially that is.
    He is no closer to a Superbowl trophy than he was when he was with the Raiders. And despite all the shit the Raiders have gone through this year, Mack on the other side of Maxx Crosby in this defense 2021, Mack would've been better off as a Raider...
    Ngaukoue is earning his contract, for sure, but Mack is a better overall end. A way better run defender and a slightly better pass rusher
