    8-8 Cable saves his job.

    I like it, but I would flip-flop the Texans and Redskins.

    Raiders got over the hump last year against the Texans, but the Redskins will run Portis down our throats.

    I also don’t see a sweep against KC. It just rarely happens.

    Raiders are due a win against the Chargers.

    So I guess I like the result, just flip-flopping a couple of games.

    However, Dakota, this is a GOOD side prediction. This looks like it could be another 5-11 or 6-10 season with a few injuries.

  • Norco Bob

    Anyway Im out,..sippin a beer here at 8:40 AM,…heading to the coliseum with my green and gold broom in hand,…will be in every face of red sux fan today,…cya!

  • I would settle for Oher if A. Smith is off the board.

    We simply must avoid the overrated WRs and LBs and that fat guy that was academically ineligible for a year, failed a drug test at the combine and has never played NT before; Raji.

  • 4evaRaider

    wait Norco Bob

  • Dude

    Come on now ladies. EVERYTHING being said right now is nothing more than smokescreen after smokescreen. I really dont think that PFT article really said much as far as the Eagles interest in Smith. I bet every team would say the same thing about the kid if asked. Seems like every year we all think we have it all figured out only to be put squarely in our place come draft day. As far as what Cable says, please dont try and tell me you think he has any say in who Al takes in rd 1. Al takes who he wants. Period. Been proven time and time again.

  • jhill


    The same way you know Curry will be gone at 3. I found the place where you bought the crystal balls.

  • If A. Smith was on the board at #7 and we trade down with the Eagles for the 21st and 28th picks I would be pissed…unless of course we drafted :

    Mack at 21
    DHB at 28
    Jamon Meredith at 40

    *****Cable and Jerry cracks me up man**************
    I would not pay any attention to Cable’s interview at all. He was talking out loud and really said nothing at all. It is like listening to Mel Kiper just talk about the positive side of the draft picks and not talk abouit the rankings you know what I mean? He did not say anything that any other coach has said. To Cable they all are great.

    Cable and Jerry’s “super hero” interview continues:

    Jerry: Coach Cable what do you think about Spiderman? Cable: Well, he is pretty amazing. He can really jump high, best jumper I ever seen!!!!

    Jerry: Great, Great. Coach Cable what do you think about Superman?
    Cable: He sure is super he s strong and can fly. You are getting two fro the price of one.

    Jerry: What do you think about the Flash?
    Cable: Fastest guy I ever saw, he really has a motor on him.

    Do you see what I am saying? He pumped up the obvious. Don’t waste your timetrying to figure it out. We will know on game day.

  • Dude


    Case of Pyramid against your case of Anchor Steam the Raiders DO NOT take Raji.

  • jhill

    More specifically, he’s the best OT in the draft Dakota.

    I’d jump on him in a minute if he’s available at 7.

    Same with Crabtree, Curry, Monroe, and Maulauga. I’ll bet anything that those 5 players will be pro bowlers out of this class.

  • jhill

    Mack at 21?

    I can’t believe you are writing off Satele. I didn’t realize you were such a Parcells guy.

  • jhill

    DHB at 28



    I thought we should avoid WR?

  • Dude

    Someone still thinks theyr taking a C?
    Yeah, they traded a mid rd pick for Satele so they could turn around and draft a center. Come on now.

  • jhill

    Ok, so power = Bush, huh? Is that what Cable is pushing now? His first answer was more 2 TE sets.

    Ok, I’ll buy that we are going to now see more Bush than Fargas. But I will also add that if McFadden is our new 3rd WR, then there is really no room for Crabtree, right?

  • Dude

    You saying Crabtree is NOT better than Walker, JLH or Chaz?

  • Good morning.

  • the Lions are looking at Ronald Curry .perfect fit

  • jhill

    Not saying that at all.

    But essentially changing McFadden’s # to 89 eliminates the need for a playmaker at WR.

  • jhill

    Wassup O!

  • inonewordraider

    If Crabs is on the board we gotta go w/ him he’s just a flat out stud. I’m all about having a nasty D but Crabtree is not a guy that comes around all the time and hopefully we won’t have such a high pick again any time soon. We can get Brace w/ the 2nd pick who is a load and whoever doesn’t think he got double teamed just look at Raji highlights. Moala if Brace isn’t there who is quick enough to play base end but has the frame/athleticism to add 20 lbs and be a stud NT. 3rd and 4th gotta get best LB and S on the board. If Crabs isn’t there at 3 trade back and get USC lb w/ 1st pick and Brace or Moala w/ 2nd pick. In this scenario I say just go w/ the receivers we got as the rest of the WR’s aren’t enough of an upgrade to go WR over D

  • jhill

    WTF are Seattle and Cleveland going to do?

    I just can’t see Sanchez dropping past Cleveland, and he might not make it past 3. Would anyone be surprised to see a deal between KC and Denver for that #3 pick?

  • The Eagles want A Smith, so make the Trade Al.

    With their 2 1st RD pick, we get OT Michael O, and WR DHB.

  • Dude

    Ummm…. not even sure how to respond to that. McFadden by himself doesnt make the WRs good enough. Be nice to have a legit number 1 AND McFadden as recieving threats.

  • Jhill,

    We should avoid a WR with the picks we currently have, but if we add an additional pick in a trade with the Eagles then of course we should address WR.

  • Getting Mc Fadden and Bush on the field together makes the offense more versatile with the run or pass option.

  • JHill,

    Are the 4 OTs Cable spoke of, the same as the top 4 players he likes??
    I think so.

  • jhill

    Det – Stafford
    Rams – Andre Smith
    Den – Sanchez
    Sea – Eugene Monroe
    Cle – Crabtree
    Cincy – Jason Smith
    Oak – Curry

  • Dude


    Does it matter who Cable likes?

  • I have a feeling someone will disrupt the draft with a blockbuster trade or deal that changes the thinking of a lot of teams.

  • I’m so confused now about our draft.
    Is it going to be OT, DE, WR, DT, or a trade???
    I can’t stop thinking about it.

  • Dude,

    Yes it does, but The final word is Al’s.

  • Dude

    Nah. Cables opinion on the draft, the first round at least, means as much as past coaches: ZERO.

    If you dont know that, you just havent been paying attention.

  • jhill

    I understand what you are saying Dude …

    I just think there are other holes that need to be filled before we add 2 bodies at WR. If we were still looking at McFadden getting 20-25 carries, then yeah we need a Crabtree. But if McFadden will instead get 10 balls thrown his way, in addition to Miller, JLH, and Schillens getting 5 looks or so a game, then I think we can go in a different direction.

    Besides, I think he’ll be gone when we pick.

  • Do you agree?

  • Jhill,

    Now Cleveland might take Sanchez? The Browns are giving up on Brady Quinn after spending 2 first round picks on him and only giving him three starts? And I thought the Raiders fans bashing Russell after one year of starting were dumb. Hey, they are the Browns, so I guess it could be true.

    Sanchez might go at 8…if he is lucky. If I was the Raiders I would certainly discuss the possibility of trading down to the Broncos, allowing them to pick up Sanchez at #7 for the #12 pick and the #48 pick.

    But, the idea of Al trading down from the top of the draft just doesn’t seem realistic. We can always hope.

  • There are too many holes not to trade down and there is more value in the middle to end of the 1st rnd. I don’t see the # 7 pick filling our total needs. We need more picks.

  • LMN

    good looking out on the 408….

  • 4evaRaider

    yep my head is spinning about the draft and its myriad possibilities

  • Dude,

    So we disagree, what else is new? lol

    Al listened to his coaches before.
    The Kittin traded Moss, and Gruden did a lot of what he liked.

  • jhill


    Are the 4 OTs Cable spoke of, the same as the top 4 players he likes??
    I think so.


    May very well be.

    But WTF does Cable mean by Mario Henderson ain’t goin nowhere?

    Is Barnes willing to play RT?

    Those are two huge questions to answer.

  • Dude

    DMAC is a rb, not a reciever. For a rb to be effective in the passing game there has to be another threat out there that the defense has to account for. Otherwise the rb is gonna get neutralized by double teams or sticking a corner on him because simply put: Chaz, Walker and JLH dont scare anybody.

  • Jhill,

    Raiders Coaches attended DHB’s pro day. I think the Trade with the Eagles could happen, if A Smith was there at 7.

  • OAKlifer

    But, the idea of Al trading down from the top of the draft just doesn’t seem realistic. We can always hope.


    Ummm yhea and with denver…..never happen

  • jhill


    I was reading the other day that Quinn was on the blocks and Cleve already had an offer of at least a #1.
    And we all know Anderson is not the guy.

    It’s not that big of a stretch for Mangini to know that Quinn sucks, and will never be shyt!

  • Dude

    Come on now boss, Gruden had to sit up and rationalize the Janikowski pick. Your tellin me that was a Gruden choice? If a T is taken at 7 then I will possibly jump to your side untill then I will stick with the norm.
