    Like saying Carson Palmer was their first round pick? Or saying Greg Knapp would bring an explosive offense to Oakland?

    Johnny……Holmgren 1-2 in SB

  • DJ Johnny

    Nobody ever talks about Joey Clinkscales..Pres. of Player Personnel. Not that anybody should just sayin’. Maybe it’s for HIS gig.

  • FutureRaiderScout

    What i see Mark, Amy & Sir Reggie doing here is building a WINNING ORGANIZATION from TOP to BOTTOM. That’s how it should be done.

    We’re looking like a team that knows what it means to be COMMITTED to EXCELLENCE and what WINNING is all about.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    “LB Manti Te’o, Notre Dame – The Raiders are very high on Te’o, though they are like most teams now in trying to gauge how much to factor in Te’o’s fake girlfriend story and his horrendous showing in the national title game against Alabama. Te’o is a tremendous leader, instinctive player and very solid against the run and pass – he had seven interceptions in 2012.”

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    What?!! “The Raiders are very high on Teo.”?!
    Are you crazy Cork?

    Two posts in short order and this first post by Cork is obviously a reprint of Cork’s article that was already posted and written BEFORE Teo’s really bad showing at the combine.

    The guy’s too slow, has no strength and there is no way in hell we should pick him with our #3.

    He won’t go till the end of the third round or even the 4th.

    That second quick post by Becker looks like a desperate attempt by Jon to save the blog from disintegrating.

    ——————————————————–

    That’s right. my mistake. One of them got stolen from him.

  • DJ Johnny

    Ok…so Holmgren’s been to 3 SB’s with two diff org’s.

    That’s Parcell’s territory. I think he went 2-1 in SB’s?

    I would bet Holmgren has a higher winning % too…overall.

    If we land Holmgren it should put to rest the whole “nobody any good would ever come to THIS mess” talk.

    MIKE HOLMGREN —
    Well Respected QB Coach = a plus for both Palmer and
    Pryor

    Won 2 super bowls so he knows what a winning team should look like. In 17 seasons he only has had 3 losing seasons.

    Worked with many other well respected guys around the league like JON GRUDEN (yes we all know this), Steve Mariucci, Jim Mora, Dick Juron, Andy Reid,

    I think it can only benefit the team to add a guy like Holmgren.
    ****************************

    He also knows what a winning QB looks like…..Palmer need not apply
    —————————————————–

    That’s your opinion not his. And if he feels that way when he gets here im sure he’ll make it known. There aren’t many better options available so there’s no need to complain about what we have. We should just put him in the best situation to be a winner.

    Like he did for Hasselbeck…

    We’ve heard alot of rumors about Raiders talking to people about front office gigs. Ray Anderson, the guy from Madison Sq. Garden…then we just moved on and forgot about them.

    We’ll see what happens with this.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Once the draft and free agency signings are done with, Regina’s next task will be finding a way to save face when he fires Tits.

    Sparano gets the interim gig.

  • xraided

    its conceivable that Mark is putting a backup plan in place for BigMac … he’s feeling the heat now! DRAFT WELL OR BE GONE!

    ——————————————————————————————————————

    Its also conceivable that Mark is putting together a SOLID staff so we can get the Raiders back to being a respectable Organization.

    With a solid staff in place its a lot easier to target better players especially in Free Agency.

    Reggie and DA did a fine job in the off season last year with NO cap space and NO picks… I’m sure they’ll do even better this year with more pieces to work with.

    I dont understand why if the League respects these guys, you cant..? AT least while they are a part of our organization.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    i hope shrek jumps into action with all the heat….put the flame on him

    If Holmgren does indeed come on board….he is some QB guru….do you think he would like Palmer going forward

    And how would the front office fight between Reggie and Mike be when the errand boy brings back that slab of ribs from Everett and Jones?

    LMAO.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Everett and Jones?

    Oh yeah…good stuff!

    stars the best dt prospect since suh, know one can handle him one on one free’s up everyone else to make a play, and he plays nasty/dominates good competition. moore it turns out is slow. who else do you want geno? a short guard Warmack? Joeckel when we already have a LT?
    ————————-
    I’ve never been high on Moore and have always seen Geno as somewhat of a worst case scenario for this draft. A dominant guard with great leverage Warmack? Yes please. Joeckel: I wouldn’t jump up and down for a RT but I wouldn’t be disappointed. I’d also be good with diving into the pool of pass rushers. Jordan could be a stud for instance. I don’t hate Star, I just don’t see him as anything more than just another guy at the top of a crapshoot top-weak draft.

    ^^^^^^^^^
    In a crap shoot draft, than guys like Jordan, Star and even Ansah should be looked at. Those are guys with solid upside.

    Holmgren was an unmitigated DISASTER

  • ohioraider

    Holmgren was an unmitigated DISASTER here in Cleveland. Aloof, patronizing, clearly in it for the paycheck, and far too removed from day to day operations. Local fanbase here hated him.
