    That’s a great point. The mod deleted one of my posts saying basically the same thing. Bringing the Peppers issue in as comparison underscores this moreso.

    Seymour goes anywhere else for a 2011 1st rounder, it’s a great move.

    Because it’s the Raiders, there’s another opportunity to bash Al Davis & Co.

    The only way this is a bad trade is if Seymour stinks it up. New England will probably trade the pick for for a 2 and a 3 anyway.

    Raiders have to win on Monday Night.
    or

    Have a record at .500

    We gotta end this hate talk. Even though some of it is funny.

  • Plunketthead

    Woohoo I am back in.

    Jim Rome is PC ahole.
    He and everyone else is saying that we got the shaft from the genius and that the pick will probaly be a #1.
    We have had one #1 pick in our history and one #2.

    And people wonder why Al wont say anything to the media.

    IMHO, I believe that DL position needed help but not a Seymour kind of player especially since we all know he is a an all star in this league. I would personally had Shaun Rogers, Corey Williams kind of players that fit the Raiders type of players. Remember Big Ted Washington, he could stop the run easily. A real DT would have helped without giving up a high draft pick, I think Corey Williams is available for the right price maybe a third and a fourth rounder I am guessing or a second round pick for Shaun Rogers would definitely bring him to the bay, ready motivated to play for us. Instead of having a player come from top teams of the league, get players from the middle of the pile like Texans OKaye or Cardinals Dockett, Stroud from Bills, Geathers from Bengals and list goes on, why Seymour knowing he would be pissed and play a Moss Hall tricks on us?

    Anyone remember when Rhome got knocked on his ass by Jim “Chris” Everett? The frightened look on that tools face was flippin’ classic!!!

    Further reason why Mista Brown doesnt get it.

    Post 207.

    I feel u on that but maybe no one is willing to do business with us. Every single media outlet always has a snickering, sarcastic comment about everything we do as an organization. Thats why it is important that we win this year and shock a lot of people, hell everyone. Really I can not think of one media source that thinks we have improved. Not even props to a gradual improvement so honestly until we win we must suffer the consequences as fans. WE HAVE TO BEAT SAN DIEGO.

    Ha, ha! Up yours LangsTON.

    Bills found out what we already knew…

    Nnamdi21, we would be lucky to have Walker back. He is much better than Cornell Green.

  • LA to TheBay

    I think Al has too much invested in Warren and especially Kelly to bring in another DT. Besides, Seymour can play really anywhere on the line, and the goal would be to use him in different spots depending on the situation.

    I would prefer to see a beast at MLB or SLB.

  • Crimedog

    Does anybody have any specific source for what happens if Seymour decides he doesnt want to play for the Raiders? Is the trade still valid? Do we get our pick back? Schefter seems to think the deal is done and the pick is gone no matter what happens with Seymour and the Raiders. It seems that this can not be possible other wise trading draft picks for players would be an extremely dicey proposition.

  • Charlie

    Langston Walker just got cut by the Bills.

    Another ex Raider starter THAT IS NOT EVEN IN THE LEAGUE any longer.

    I think that as an organization we are finally accepting that our talent level was not just weak, it was not even able to compete in the NFL.
    The deal for Seymour is a major admission of that fact.

    Hopefully this gives our new coaching staff some time to stay in place. Cable has cleaned up a lot of garbage but he will need more than a couple of years to fix this mess.

    ESPN right this minute: No sign of Seymour in Oakland.

    Raiders/Seymour was SportCenter’s top story.

    Seymour must pass a physical or the deal can be reworked or voided.

    If he passes a physical and decides to sit out, the Raiders put him on a non-football list, meaning no paycheck and he can’t play anywhere. Then, in 2010, his 09 contract would kick in. In 2011, he would be a FA.

    If he really wants to damage his career and lose out on way more money than anyone other than Davis would pay him, he’ll sit. Not happening. Expect Richard in Oakland wearing S&B for the Thursday practice.

  • Terrapin

    Its obvious to see that this must be GREAT trade b/c all the rats are coming out now to down the organization over the deal. They hate it! They don’t even want to think about the potential so they hide behind the “Oakland sucks” banter so they don’t have to look at things objectively.

    Just last year the Vikings gave up MUCH more to get Allen (1st and two 3rds, i believe) and everyone lauded how great a deal it was for the Vikes and KC.

    Oakland comes around and only pays a 1st for a player that is on the same par with Allen and all of a sudden its a terrible deal.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Proud Raider fans have to be offended at the way so many of these contributors at ESPN, most of them former players, are summing up the Raiders. They’re talking about this as if Seymour has been sent to Somalia. It’s unbelievable. There is not a lot of respect for Al Davis and the Raiders amongst league circles, and I’m particularly referring to the players! The Raiders are only attractive anymore to players looking for an easy check. The notion that the Raiders are a place where veterans finish their careers AND win football games is not selling to today’s players. That’s a serious problem for Al Davis if he continues to run this type of system.

    Reading up on the internet it seems after that saints raiders pre game everyone sees the raiders winning just 4 games. Before that some said 6-10 and others even went 8-8. I don’t see how one preseason game can change ones faith like that. The raiders got blasted by that same team last year and cam back to win more games and play competitevly. We lost many games by just a few points (miami,kc,buffalo,carolina) If we win those games we go 9-7 and into the playoffs… And we still had blowout games to denver, sandiego, No, and Ne. The moral of the story is the raiders have shown after a blowout loss they can bounce back so I don’t see the logic why people believe we should get done like that every game when we’ve shown we can be competitive.

    The raiders gave the game away to san fran. We blasted the cow girls, the saints matchup well against us, and the seattle game was the final game of the pre season. Our road to success depends on if we can stop the run and jamarcus progresses, because our secondary is solid. Now you add richard symour to the mix and that settles the run, added to the progress jamarcus has shown, I don’t see why we shouldn’t be able to surprise this year? We have a top ten running game to go along with a decent D and a much better passing game than we had last year… This team is much improved in a division that is on the decline. Tom didn’t show his hand in the preseason, and he showed last year he had some creativity in his playbook, to go along with newly equipped playmakers in nick miller dhb,and louis murphy.

    We haven’t played one game and people are giving up. This seymour trade is huge. This is the d-lineman we’ve been missing. Herm edwards said it best, “the raidernation is back baby, Its back”! And i’m not letting 1 preseason game and habitual raider haters change my mind. (;

    Win, lose, or tie, Ima muth@ F^k*n raider till I die!!!

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    DMac, I don’t like the way people are changing their predictions due to the performance in preseason games, either. My prediction was 4 wins before the preseason, and is still 4 wins now.

    ^^^^^^^Exactly!

  • DKnight007

    The old man and Cable need to sign DT Terrance Taylor also!

  • Dmac20

    Well maddenraider your’re a pessimist and no nostrodomis either. You’re a negaitive person in lite, so you’re always gonna predict the worse. I can tell half the things in your life have gone wrong and that is why you think the so negatively. You have a feeling as if “nothing in my life goes right for me,” so you expect the worse so you won’t feel let down… I know its ok mr… You weren’t hugged enough as a child, father didn’t love you enough? thats why you’re so negative, it’ll be ok though you can’t live in the dark forever… The sun has to shine sometime.(:
