    i would love star..mcshay was breaking him down the other day..suh type athleticism without the head trauma..

    ———-

    I dunno. We currently have two DT’s that when healthy, were playing VERY good football despite what the semi’s here think. I only want to dump Seymore and Kelly because of their costs, not their play.

    I want another Grady Jackson. Much cheaper, and damn good.

    But drafting a top notch DT, to replace two top notch DT’s isnt going to solve anything if our DE play is still so poor.

    Gotta fix the DE issues before drafting DT. We could always hold on to Kelly and Seymore one more year, and paired with JPP & Moore and we’d have maybe the best D-Line in the league with Bilkuldi, Shaunessy, and Houston rotating in often.
    ———————————–
    to me, kelly and seynour part of the root of the problem here in oakland..we havnt been able to stop the run or get a push up the middle for years. mcclain, seymour, kelley , and huff have gotz ta go imo.

    ———–

    If you think Kelly and Seymore are the reasons for our run woes, youre not properly evaluating the games.

    They occupy lineman, and regularly change the line of scrimmage. It’s up to the DE’s to seal the edge (which ours dont) and our LB’s to fill the proper gaps that the DT’s create (which they dont).

    A new DT wont change anything in those regards.
    ——————————-
    if the new dt’s better, absolutely would change.

    ———–

    A new DT would be cheaper, but he wouldnt play much better than Kelly and Seymore have this year.

    A new DT wont solve our real issues. We need better DE’s and smarter LBs.

    —————————————————–
    I agree with you on Kelly to a degree. But I think Seymour is done. His best years are far behind him. I think Kelly could shine at UT next to Star, but if hes let go, which I expect, I still think Bryant and Star is going to be a mean DT duo. Even in 3-4, with Star as NT and Bryant as an end. So we have players that can make a nice line, and Star would be a great anchor. I dont think we are getting the most out of our line, like last year either. Wauffle had Houston, Bryant, Shaugnessy, Seymour, Kelly, all shifting and moving around. We were getting much more pressure. This D gets no pressure, even when sending the whole house. OK, Im getting off topic, rambling about the coaching.

    ———–

    Trust me, I liked Wauffle as a d-line coach.

    And yeah, Seymore is done physically.

    But that doesnt change the fact that when he’s in the game and healthy, he plays well, and our run D still sucks. Why? Read my earlier post. Our LB’s miss the gaps and our DEs do a poor job of sealing the edge.

    A new DT wont solve those issues. As great as Warren Sapp was, probably the best DT ever or at least in the conversation, he had GREAT DE’s and super smart LB’s behind him during his best years.

    Which begs me to ask, why the hell did the NFL ever blackball Simeon Rice?

    Just Dive baby!!!,

    Star in the middle of a D-line with Bryant, Houston, and Shaughnessy? Lights Out.

    One guy who I will have my eye on in training camp next season, who didnt get a lot of chance to work this year because of injury, Jack Crawford at DE. Hes a little raw, but man, he shows some explosiveness coming off the edge. If he can get coached up right, he can be someone we get some nice production out of next season.

    No way will the RAiders Lose to the chiefs today. The raiders are bad but the chiefs are really really bad.

    Easy win for the Raiders. They will win by 10 points. Print that

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    btw Greg Papa just said on the radio Carson Palmer / Terrelle Pryor are both Sick today.

    Coach tom flores basically said Who gives a F.. u still gotta show up for work. lmao. So true Coach!

    Raiders 20*

    Raiders score garbage TD on last possession. Chiefs have more respect for their HC than Raiders do for Tits.

    good debate riff, im out..be back around gametime.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Sweep to right, sweep to left…My junior high coach ran that offense too. Didn’t know John Robinson was running the offense today.

  • John David Booty

    Raiders #1 in YAC.

    But some want to act like we dont have offensive talent. Please.

    YAC is the most telling stat of an offensive skill players ability.

    Call the plays, plays will be made. Simple as that.

    The fact that the Raiders are #1 in YAC is even MORE of an indictment on Knapp. We should be scoring much more.

  • jackasspuria

    Wow.

    CBS’ Solomon Wilcott on the money.

    “DHB didn’t even contest for the football. WRs have to contest for the football, help their QB.”

  • J Hill

    Low football IQ there DLess!

  • jackasspuria

    Backed up on the goal line… not good.

    Have bad feeling safety is going to occur…

  • rodn5yn

    to Raider Ruff

    During his interview, RM mentioned not having a speed rusher off the edge. Our defensive line is good overall, just lacks a disruptive pass rusher off the edge, that offenses have to game plan for.

    If only Clowney was available this year.
