    he’s been the starting qb for more win than McG and Flynn combined.

  • Raider_Riff

    It’s gonna get blown up anyway.

    40% or more of this roster wont be here next year. Continuity means nothing right now.

    Get some people in here that you trust can spend the money the right way.

  • 2romes

    I read one sentence and you are nor target.

  • Gdog

    RM will put DA’s head on a pike to save his own job… just watch.

    I’d rather fire Reggie and keep DA than the other way around…

  • Alex7

    true true. Rebuilding takes time.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    others are calling for him.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    teams win. not qbs.

  • Raider_Riff

    Agreed.

    I think Reggie has been the problem all along.

  • Alex7

    Chiefs got solid performances today from 1st round picks dating back to 2005 (Derrick Johnson).

    It takes time to build a team full of Pro Bowlers.

  • nolimits3333

    It’s too bad Charles Woodson didn’t play today.

  • funnyfalcon

    and loads more talent on an under-performing roster.

  • LB32

    And a new HC

  • the authoritative dr robert

    well, thank u. i wish our HC knew it.

  • RaiderLen

    So Reggie has had no Real Money to spend, but we can extrapolate that He will blow it.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    That’s the pickle. But I can’t see how any owner would be content with this. Most points in team history at home on the way to closing out the season?

  • Eldiabs

    Most other GMs had their QBs settled and nobody wanted to waste their time with our junk,,,they did drop him twice but then also picked him up twice which means they have no idea what they are doing… So I’d like to see for myself and leave you and the rest of the GMs in the league to go scratch

  • SnBG

    Oh yes he will.

  • kenchun24

    Seriously…Raiders should rob this 2014 FSU squad. Save for Famous Jameis in 2015 the Raiders should draft Benjamin WR/ Joyner CB,FS/ any one of the RB’s andthe FSU kicker to replace Jano. Then suck next year with McNugget/TP (and Allen/Reggie) then blow it all up for #1 overall withFamous Jameisand I have no idea as coach/ GM.

  • funnyfalcon

    still need andy reid. same team was crap last year.

  • Gdog

    ..imagine that!

    You pick the dumber of the dumb and dumber…

  • the authoritative dr robert

    well, it’s a record setting season.

    most points given up ever.

    most td passes given up ever.

    longest run by a…..qb?

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Will you be hiring your twin brother? That was an assistant HC in High school? Is your only qualification for your HC hire to be “my guy”? If yes, you’re hired

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    New GM-HC-QB combo next year.
    And without an inkling of who it will be, I am already calling it an upgrade.

  • LB32

    Sure but the W or L goes to the starting QB

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Good start. Unfortunately Mark owns the team so he can’t be removed for poor performance.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Oh, look everyone. The Benedict Arnold of Raider fans is here.

  • SnBG

    We will get another year of Reg and Allen to see how they do with the money and drafts. That’s how the Colts turned their team around. They had 82mil and 10 picks.

  • kenchun24

    Well TP and the Raids will always have that lol

  • Gdog

    Uhh, all KC had to do was call a screen to the left on a third and long because THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WORKED LAST WEEK!!!

  • 2romes

    8 starts . The ninth is a coach decision. Or maybe it is 7 a games and Bad coach on the 8th.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    nope. it’s a team/HC stat. nowhere among nfl stats will u find qb W/L record.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Did you leave when Al was here ya fugging hypocrite? More loyalty to a 8-22 than a 3 time SB winner. makes sense

  • 0ak R8rs

    Oh. Palmer has won some regular season games? There’s a shocker. Still a losing record for his career, only QB w 50+ wins to have achieved a losing record, but sure, he’s got some wins. Never said he didn’t have talent, pryoriite, just said he’s never won anything an never will. I’m still right. And I will continue to be so.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    They were 2-14 last year with most of the same roster.

  • kenchun24

    And Smith too IMO…

  • Twinkle

    His knee may be worse than we realize..he doesn’t seem to have the same burst.It is why the option doesn’t work in the NFL.QB’s playing slap and tickle with the likes of Lawrence Taylor costs the owners too much dough.

  • nolimits3333

    I hope not. I can’t stand Dennis Allen.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    umm, guys. i pretty much did say this was gonna happen the minute DA decided to roll with pryor.

  • Raider_Riff

    Ya.

    His draft picks have been Al Davis crappy.

    The little FA money he had he spent on Flynnch instead of a DE.

    And he’s spent most of this year trying to get rid of Pryor.

    I simply dont trust Reggie with the money. Hayden might turn out alright, but at this point, it was a major mistake. Same with Watson. There were better options and he passed on them. He got too cute with his picks.

    This team has gotten worse. Much worse since he has taken over. That can no longer be argued against.

    It was his choice to avoid blowing things up in 2012. He overestimated our talent. That’s on him. And a bad mark for his evaluation of talent. Then there is Flynn, Barkely, VY, Wilson, Freeman…. his QB record is the equivalent of Matt Millen with WRs at this point.

    I wanted to like Reggie. But this crap is historically bad. HISTORICALLY BAD.

  • Rico Stifler

    That is your job, mcdumbass….

  • SnBG

    Exactly. 7 picks and a couple of free agents away from a real team.

  • Alex7

    Chiefs 1st round picks:
    .
    2005 – Derrick Johnson, LB, Pro Bowler
    2006 – Tamba Hali, LB/DE, Pro Bowler
    2007 – Dwayne Bowe, Pro Bowler
    2008 – Glenn Dorsey, Jamaal Charles (3rd round)
    2009 – Tyson Jackson
    2010 – Eric Berry, Pro Bowler
    2013 – Alex Smith – former 1st rounder .
    .
    It takes time to load your team with talent.

    Well at least all the Steelers offensive players clearly and proudly said the university that gave them the opportunity to play professional football.

  • Gdog

    I hate we keep losing. You are obviously comfortable with it because you have a Reggie smelling nose. As pointed out before…

  • Rico Stifler

    He can be delusional like that…

  • nolimits3333

    Al took DBs in 5 out of 8 drafts.

  • Alex7

    did you brag about Flynn yet? I just signed in.

  • Raider_Riff

    This is true.

    Ive heard rumors that his knee isnt 100% still.

    And at this point in his development, without his legs, he’s not very effective.

  • Alex7

    right. We’re getting zero help from the 2005-2009 drafts right now.

  • kenchun24

    Pryor is years underdeveloped so I’m with you here..McG with his college coaching under O’brien makes terrible throws left and right…they both suck to me but McNugget should be doing a bit better even for a rook…but then again Romo today, yikes!
