Raiders and NFL Talk / Re: NFL Draft 2014
« Last post by Matty Raider on March 25, 2014, 01:03:05 PM »
So we sit at the #5 pick....I think we can all agree we need to draft someone at that spot who is a playmaker and can step in immediately.  If either Clowney, Watkins or Mack is there - grab him.  If not, I am not opposed to trading back.  Love to grab Aaron Donald, DT/Pitt or Mike Evans WR/Texas A&M and recoup another 2nd Rounder.

TP wants out - perhaps we could get back our 5th (wasted on Flynn) or 6th back from the Schaub trade.

I am not opposed to making a run at DeSean Jackson either if the price is right.  Sure he's a diva but so are most WRs in the NFL.  At least he doesn't piss hot on drug tests and/or get arrested.

TOPICS:

Segment #1: "Reggie McKenzie - the new Dr. Frankenstein"

We review the moves that Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has made so far in free agency, after the questionable start the first few days. Signings were coming quickly, and the possibilities are exciting.

Segment #2: “Raiders trade for QB Matt Schaub"

The Raiders traded a 6th round pick in this year's draft to the Houston Texans for QB Matt Schaub. Dennis Allen and Greg Olson think Schaub could be our franchise quarterback for the next several years. Raider Greg likes the move and give his thoughts. We hear Matt Schaub chatting with Raiders Jeanette Thompson on "Behind the Shield." We also hear Greg Olson commenting during the introductory press conference on the difference he thinks Schaub can make to the Raiders.

Segment #3: “A look at our new free agent acquisitions"

We talk about our new Raiders and hear from some of them via interviews on Raiders.com. Included are segments with Austin Howard, Justin Tuck, Lamarr Woodley, and Antonio Smith "The Ninja Warrior." We also hear from Charles Woodson, who resigned for one more year. He gives his thoughts on our new acquisitions.

we got cotton swab (aka q-tip) for a 6th round pick. is he that much worse than palmer? we gave up the farm for him. compared to hue jack blowing his load for palmer, veggie looks cool, calm, and collected in trading for swab.

****On a side note Bill Williamson of espn is a effing SPAZZ. You talk about some one who obviously has a dislike for the Raiders. His article " Schaub is not the next Gannon". No ISH Sherlock, who in the hell was out there saying he was. So what the point of writing the whole article about that i have no idea other than to be a D-Bag. He needs to stop writing about the Raiders in general and move on. Funny how the people on NFL network think this a def a good move for the Raiders for is is an upgrade to what we had.

I just read Bill's article. And then I did a little research. If you look at Gannon's stats when he was with the Chiefs, before the Raiders picked him up, he wasn't doing as great as Schaub did with Houston previous to the bad season he had last year. Gannon didn't catch fire until he became a Raider. I wonder if Bill actually knew that or if he was just thinking that Gannon was that great before the Raiders brought him on.

And now I feel even better about the Schaub deal. We may have our QB here.  :)

My take - Andre Johnson made Schaub look good in Houston, Sammy Watkins can do the same for us. Unless we go after Jackson, Watkins should be the pick and i'd rather go with the latter option.

We can get a project qb later, Aaron Murray would be a decent bet.

All of a sudden it seems like Mckenzie at least has a plan, how clever it is we won't know until this team steps out on the field.

Glad we got Schaub... (regardless of his college background)... I was rooting for Reggie, had he used anything other than a late round draft pick on this, I would have been pretty upset. Palmer and Schaub are probably not that different when it comes to where they are in their careers, however, we shit the bed on the Palmer trade by giving up EVERYTHING... for this, we basically gave up a pick that would have been used on a guy that wouldn't have made it past the first cut. I definitely see that there is some logic in what VeggieMac is doing. AT LEAST compared to what we've been through in the past.

Our team is however turning into a retirement home... but building from the draft is what it's all about. Trade UP, not DOWN... get Clowney. That's a decent team. Bring in Incognito's racist ass, maybe some WR help. But bring in these old folks and build from the draft. Old folks teaching the young. Not bad.

Raiders and NFL Talk / DeSean Jackson?
« Last post by Matty Raider on March 21, 2014, 02:48:02 PM »
Also heard Raiders inquiring about DeSean....don't know about this.  He's a bit of a diva but he can ball.  Got some roots here playing at Cal too.  Don't know.  Got some nice veterans now to keep an ego like that in line.  I read that Eagles wanted a 2nd for him though........hell no to that.  Reggie gotta wheel and deal to make it favorable if that was an option.  Thoughts?

GREAT pick-up.  Schaub was the best FA QB out there.  He had a bad season last year....so what...dude has thrown over 4K yards for multiple seasons.  He's a good QB.  I also like that now that we have Schaub, that opens up tons of options for the #5 pick.  Do we draft Watkins?  Him, Schaub, Jones, Streater Holmes?  NIIIIIICE.  Do we trade it back?  Pick up more picks and draft a monster ass DT like Aaron Donald or another stud WR like Mike Evans?  Does Clowney fall to us?  I AM LOVING THIS.
