    I am going to openly question your sexuality.

    ————————————————————

    Agreed 1000%.

    Not the first time this has come up amongst the semi’s in regards to ole boy.

  • J Hill

    We have an abundance of receiving threats on the squad.

    Don’t we need an OLB and Corner?

    I hope Hue is talking Mike Brown into trading this years #2 for Ford.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Routt – Out

    Wimbley – Out

    Huff – Restructured

    Seymour – Way too much guaranteed

    TK?????????

    Live Chats are where Corkran makes his hay.

    He can get a little ornery in there, and let his opinions fly around a little.

    I will be hammering him with Q’s tomorrow.

  • Stringer Bell

    If they move Ford they absolutely have to replace him with a playmaker on defense.

    Jacoby Ford has 7 total TD’s to 6 fumbles, and averages less than 2 catches a game so far.

    He is dynamic, and again not dying to see him go, but let’s not act like he is some world-beater.

    He also wimped out at the end of the season, than tweeted about going out partying the night before the biggest Raider game in 10 years, than proceeded to cap our season off by running a poor route that ended with a pick.

    ********************************************************

    And you’re suggesting we can trade him and two late-rounders for a 2nd?

    You’re kinda contradicting yourself there, JFB.

  • raiderjhawk

    I think we have enough play makers on offense we could part with Ford, we definitely have some holes to fill on the D so if we can get someone via draft I think it would be worth it. Party time is over for these fools, they better be ready to come to work and actually put in work.

  • edward teach

    Watching Lombardi react to Bud Adams’ comments about wanting to get Manning. He looks like he’s trying very hard not to laugh.

  • Just Fire Baby

    And you’re suggesting we can trade him and two late-rounders for a 2nd?

    *************************

    I think he is talented enough to get a team pretty excited. Plus some of these East Coast teams have more value for a kick returner, due to the cold weather allowing for more kick returns and such.

    Pats would make a lot of sense, so would the Ravens.

  • Raider Weapon X http://www.raidernationstation.com/

    Was it Jerry who said we’re not making a splash in FA?

    Reggie going to do it like Green Bay and Pats find cheap guys hope they over produce.

    I think Steve said earlier we would go after some expensive CBs in FA.

    Can’t wait to see!

    Have a gr8 night Nation!~

    He is definitely talented, but do you really think you could get a 2nd round pick for him and a couple of late-rounders?

    The Patriots definitely don’t do that for a kick returner, and they have historically gone the veteran route (no pun intended) with their WRs.

    The Ravens, maybe, but not for a 2nd rounder.

  • Sweep The Leg.

    There may not be any player I could possibly dislike more than Randy Moss already.

    Being a 49er puts him in the lead for all-time d-bag.

    Hope you flame out, quitter.

    We got a 2nd rd pick for Doug Jolley, so nothing would surprise me.

  • Raider Weapon X http://www.raidernationstation.com/

    7. Yup.

    He’s not that great, we can get along without him but hes worth a big time deal.

    Yep, and the guy that made the trade is no longer the GM of the Jets.

    Belichik and Ozzie Newsome? Don’t think so.

  • r8eray

    I don’t recall Steve saying we’ll go for expensive CB’s…

    But he did say we’ll make a (1) splash in FA signings!

    I’ll tel you what though…I’m excited to see what will unfold tomorrow with Free Agency starting!

  • r8eray

    League sources tell NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora that the Raiders will formally announce the release of OLB Kam Wimbley on Tuesday.
    Kevin Boss’ release actually hasn’t been formally announced yet. Per La Canfora, Boss and Wimbley’s releases will be announced together. Wimbley will hit the market as a 28-year-old pass rusher with 16 sacks over the past two seasons and versatility to fit both a 3-4 defense as a linebacker and a 4-3 scheme as a defensive end. Wimbley would be an awfully nice fallback plan for teams that miss out on top free agent pass rusher Mario Williams.

  • J Hill

    Didn’t Belechick trade us a 3rd and a 5th for Burgess???

  • Hardline

    Who do have as big-time play-makers on offense?

    DMAC runs right over lower tier, non-playoff bound teams with losing records, but looks average to below average against higher tier, playoff bound teams with winning records: besides DMAC will be out with injury, or on the IR by game 7. Count DMAC out as a play-maker of lasting importance.

    We have Moore who, if he keeps developing will be a huge playmaker.

    DHB is a force-fed shill, one of Alzheimer’s AL’s scholarship kids, gained a lot of yards but only 3 TD’s, and in a critical “must catch” situation, chokes; his drops costs us several games last season. He is no play-maker; he traps the ball against his chest and can’t catch with his hands, lacks the ability to make big time adjustments to the ball, including the ability to leverage his body to de-position his defenders.

    Schilens and Louis Murphy haven’t exactly set the world on fire of late; they are not play-makers.

    I assume Michael Bush won’t be back as a Raider; he won’t be a play-maker.

    When Reece is used properly he is a play-maker, but only in a limited sense: after several big plays opposition D’s always adapt a defense for him. He is a limited play-maker.

    So that leaves us with Jacoby Ford, who made numerous big time plays and is talented as Moore. Last year Hue didn’t use Ford correctly and he struggled through injuries.

    The loose talk about trading Ford for a #2 pick, is just loose (and illogical) talk. Ford is a bona-fide play maker and to test the waters trading him for 2nd round draft pick is ridiculous.

    Also, the absence of Bush will come back to haunt the Raiders. Once DMAC goes down (and he will go down) and Taiwan Jones doesn’t pan out, we’ll rudely discover just how “easy” it is to find a runner to prevail for us.

  • aig-raiders

    Carmelo plays selfish basketball. Don’t think he is a selfish-dude, that’s just his game. Nobody else is involved, nobody gets in a flow, and his defensive is awful. He has to score like 25 a night to be a net gain for the team.
    ————
    Man, they are on a 6 game losing streak. Crazy where they are at now vs a few weeks ago. Common denominator in all these losses…lack of D by STAT and Melo and too much of Melo playing 1on1 bball. He just stops the flow of the game. He doesnt pass when he has the ball and they all just stand around.

    I’ve been following them since the Lakers game and 99% of Knick fans are saying the same thing on their blogs.

  • Dakota

    Warriors just traded monta Ellis to the magic for hedo Turkoluge and two first round picks. Think that is enough to keep Howard in Orlando? I don’t.

  • aig-raiders

    I hope we dont trade Ford. Dude is a threat to score any time he touches the ball.

  • aig-raiders

    I doubt the W’s will trade Ellis for Hedo and picks. Ellis is a lot like Carmelo. When Ellis gets his assist numbers up, we have a better chance to win like last nite.

    ********************************************************

    He did. Burgess was a two-time Pro Bowler that was coming off of 35 sacks in three years with the Raiders, and missed several games his last year with the Raiders with a triceps injury. When he refused to report to camp due to a contract dispute, the Raiders traded him to New England.

    Different animal, I would say.

  • J Hill

    his drops costs us several games last season.

    What game did we lose because DHB dropped the ball?

    Jacoby will be traded draft week.

    Is Ford going to start for us next year?

    I don’t understand why some of you refuse to consider replacing non starters with someone who could actually start in a position where there is a clear need.

  • hwnrdr

    What’s up, Thec? What’s the word down South, bro?

  • edward teach

    Yeah, I don’t think you can say that retaining McCann means Ford is going anywhere.

    More likely, they’re trying to keep Ford healthy so he can be more a part of the offense.

  • hwnrdr

    I forget…did McCann have a good return last year? I know Branch did…

  • aig-raiders

    It’s never good to trade away a home run threat. They gave Ford the ball in the backfield and he took it to the house. Both Grad and JC threw desperate passes to Ford and he bailed them out. Ford catches a quick out and took it to the house. You can’t trade away that type of threat. This is the one time Al Davis speed love is right.

  • hwnrdr

    AIG, you’re forgetting about Denarius Moore! Can’t wait to see his improvement this year! I guess I’m banking on that one WR coach from USC!

  • J Hill

    So we should keep Ford for his possible 1 or 2 TD returns next year?

    What about what a starting corner or OLB could contribute?

    Same story diff say my Brother…How is it for you?

  • edward teach

    Sources confirmed a RealGM.com report from earlier Monday that the Magic have continued to pursue Golden State’s Monta Ellis as a complement to Howard. ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard reported Feb. 29 that Orlando had targeted Ellis as an ideal player to try to pry from the Warriors as a means of placating Howard.

    But sources close to the situation told ESPN.com on Monday that the Warriors remain uninterested in parting with Ellis unless the trade lands Howard in Oakland. Golden State and Houston are at the top of the list of teams willing to go for a so-called “rental” trade for Howard this week with no guarantee that the NBA’s reigning defensive player of the year will stay beyond the end of the season.

    In the proposed deal, sources said, Hornets center Chris Kaman is the best player who would have been headed to Golden State, with the Warriors also required to take back Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu while shedding Dorell Wright and out-of-favor center Andris Biedrins. The Warriors, sources said, have no interest in such a swap.

    Sources told ESPN.com that the Warriors have been far more focused Monday trying to assemble a workable trade scenario to acquire center Andrew Bogut from the Milwaukee Bucks as opposed to engaging the Magic in trade talks, since Orlando is intent on acquiring Ellis to keep Howard.

  • hwnrdr

    Same as you, bro! Working to pay the bills and keep a life! Sometimes…lol

  • Thec

    JFORD should be movee to the slot. Let DMO, DHB, Chaz and Murphy man the outside…

    Cant see us getting rid of a versatile weopon. The D is going to get fixed with the picks we have, and UDFA market…

  • J Hill

    Denarius Moore! Can’t wait to see his improvement this year!

    ———————————————————–

    Agreed.

    Which is why I ask who folks think the starters are going to be?

    If Moore and DHB are the starters, and you factor in Reece and Ausberry as secondary targers, how much of a role is Ford going to have?

    If Ford is the projected starter, then yeah you hold on to him. If he’s a backup and we can get a 2nd rd pick for him, I see it as a no brainer.

    I also keep readin we need a “vet wr” to mentor our Wr’s.

    We allready have vet Wr’s;

    DHB
    JFORD
    DMO
    LMURPHY
    CHAZ

    We do not need a has been recalmation project like houz taking up a spot.

  • J Hill

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Hill,

    Ford should start for us, just as Moore should start for us this up-coming season. Last year, Hue’s choice of who to start and not start was totally inexplicable, except for DHB, who was force fed upon us by AL.

    Hue traded Hagan, a great possession receiver, huge in size with great hands, out performed all receivers on the team, and replaced him with Hous, who caught 2 passes in 8 games.

    There was no rythme nor reason to Hue’s action, which is one reason he was released.

    I am not against replacing non-starters with starters: who would be against it?? Hue’s rendition of who should start was fatally flawed and no base line from which to judge starters and non-starters.

  • aig-raiders

    Ed Teach,

    The Magics are offering either Hedo or Reddick to the W’s along with other players. Aint going to happen bro. Those guys are shooters and the last thing the W’s need are more shooters. The Ws should have drafted Shumpert over Klay. Dude can flat shut down the other team’s best guard and he is athletic as heck getting to the rim too.

  • hwnrdr

    J HIll, I actually would be shocked if we get rid of Ford, but I do see your point. However, I don’t think we can get a second for him, but you never know! I think all of these guys hopefully will have an injury free year and let’s get off to the races!

  • J Hill

    Why did J Ford drop to rd 4 anyway?

    Was it durability concerns?

  • aig-raiders

    Hwnrdr,

    I love Moore. Having both Moore and Ford on the field will create all kinds of issues for the opposing team. Trade DHB for draft pick if we could and pick up a possession WR in FA. That’s really DHB’s role now. Get the short passes because he is not a natural at catching the deep ball.
