Anything over 9 mil a year is too much for him... he's a B+ MAYBE when he isn't hurt. OT's in the draft are better than any OT's in free agency. We shouldn't fight too hard to keep ANY of our players. No one is THAT good.

Houston I think we should keep... but he is the equivalent to the smartest kid on the short bus. We are garbage, it will take a long time to rebuild and get quality players. I think we are better suited building from the draft which is what Reggie has said from day 1. To keep it exciting in the meantime, we should get some stunners... Vick, Revis type of players just to make it fun to watch.

But I still feel like our future is 2 or 4 years away. Really, this is the FIRST year we have gotten out of the mess that Al left us in... our stadium is a bigger issue, who would wanna go play there... it's not something you can really be proud of.

Building consistently good, playoff teams is a process... It sucks, and we aren't used to not making a splash year in and year out with big contracts and big names... but what has it done for us recently. New league, new rules, new way of business. Don't hold on to your money, but don't spend star money on mediocrity.

Of course we aren't better than 4-12, we have a team of mediocre players. And anyways, who cares if we go 4-12 or 8-8 or even 9-7... unless you get to and win the Super Bowl, who gives a fuck.

Word is Reggie offered Jared $55 mil/6 year contract last night...........a little over $9M a year.......more than generous.  I guess Veldheer is taking the weekend to think about it.

Also rumor mill is that The Donkeys are interested in Lamarr Houston, it's just a rumor but   :-[

Seems there are alot of people interested in houston which worries the hell out of me. What the HELL is their plan. why have they not made it a point to sign these players by now. Each day that passes makes me more worried.

I hate Twitter. There's been plenty of topics to discuss and debate. There's many other message boards thriving with discussion such as Silver & Black Pride. I've been with this site since its inception (on third account) and there used to be discussion year round. Raider Rick, Raider Mike, Miller dude everyone used to argue with, Juan George, HellRaider, you two, and many others. We need to bring life back here. Sad to see one of my top favorite sites for years become so desolate. The community has vanished.


What happened to the community here? Where did the Nation go?

I know....the off season I guess?

The combine is going on....free agency coming up. Then the draft. Things should pick up...I hope.

This place and other message boards use to be popular

But then twitter was invented and I believe that has been the death of Internet forums.

I still pop my head in here cause the RNP introduced and welcomed me to raider nation... But I have found a lot of message boards have been experiencing long and painful deaths and if anyone is to blame it's twitter in my opinion.

I agree. I am always on Silver & Black Pride, though I don't post.  Twitter sucks dude.  Narcissistic bullshit.   What happened to Hellraider, NC Raider, the guy from North Carolina?  Juan?  At least the Podcast gets regular callers.  Next time I call in I'm telling people to get on here again.  I miss the back and forth.

I promised I wouldn't bug out but the delay in signing these guys is making me a bit nervous.  I see it from both angles, no way should Reggie overpay for these guys but we have to resign our core players.  We can't just let guys walk every year.  Taking your emotions out of it, neither guy is Pro Bowl player nor do they deserve top tier.  Neither one is a top 10 at their position but they are our key guys, they MUST be resigned.  I am sticking to having faith in McKenzie, more so in the FA Department, the guy can find players....but we must resign our good existing ones!  We shall see.  I am waiting (im)patiently............

TOPICS:

Segment #1: "UK Black Hole Prepares for Raiders in London in 2014"

Raider Greg shares information on game ticket availability for the Raiders game vs the Dolphins at Wembley in late September.

Segment #2: "Oakland Raiders free agent signings - so far"

We haven't seen much in the way of the Raiders locking up their own free agents to new contracts prior to the start of free agency. Taiwan Jones and Khalif Barnes are the two recent signings. Lamarr Houston and Jared Veldheer are yet to be sign new contracts. Will they enter free agency?  What are the Raiders needs, and what will Reggie McKenzie do in free agency to fill those needs? We hear from Taiwan Jones in a recent interview on the Raiders flagship station 95.7 "The Game" on his recent contract signing. We also hear a clip from Jared Veldheer.

Segment #3: "Mark Davis speaks out on the Raiders stadium situation in Oakland"

Mark Davis was asked at the combine how the Raiders stadium situation is progressing. He expressed disappointment with the lack of progress, and basically said that this is the City of Oakland's last chance to keep the Raiders in Oakland. Will "Coliseum City" become a reality? Will the Raiders move? What are the possibilities?

Segment #4: "A look back at the recent NFL combine and look forward to the May NFL Draft"

We review the performance of the quarterbacks and other players at the recent NFL combine. We hear some interviews from draft experts and former players who spoke on 95.7 "The Game", including Raiders great Fred Biletnikoff, Joe Theismann, former NFL personnel man now with ESPN Louis Riddick, and Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur of the SF Chronicle.

Johnny is a spark plug that could be worth it but ....QB's in the draft makes Me cringe .... I'd like to see them draft Clowney...but people cry about his work ethic which is funny cause they get that opinion based off sound bites from coaches etc.... So they actually haven't coached him or been around him but they question his work ethic .... I mean it's hard not to say he's about money....but so what if he is....some players dream of making a great living playing a game they love... I think he dropped off last year cause he was required to play 3 years of college to be eligible for the NFL cause of his HS time ....I think his speed and dynamic talent has nothing but upside and considering we need a pass rusher BADLY... I think it's a no brainier to draft him because our division has some of the best QB's in it and we need to get them on their backs to win division games...that's how you really build a team...is build it around your division

Completely agree. I do not see a real franchise QB in the draft this year. I rather build a defense and this year work with what we got on offense and work in free agency. Seahawks do not have the greatest QB he is average but their defense is solid form all positions. To have a chance in our division we need that sort of defense. We are not outscoring anyone.

Is anyone seriously interested in having Johnny as our QB. the later is gets the more i see the boards having us take him. Me personally...not worth it. He might be a good project(we had enough of those) but i would rather take a bridgewater or bortles. I would much rather take any other posistion other than QB tho. I just do not see it in the QBs this year. Ic ould be wrong but Sammy(WR) or a nNix(DT) looks better than QB right now
