    Bell and Brown are great players.

    Are you kidding? It’s easy to find.

    That’s why they don’t get a w-l when they come in for relief.

    Again I’m reminded of what Matt Millen told us the day after McGloin’s first start: “Sometimes he’s not as good as he thinks he is.”

    And owner and stadium hopefully. Although, doubtful we can make that happen by next year.

  • Rico Stifler

    Couldn’t agree more….

    We all want what’s best for the Raiders. Fighting each other makes no sense.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    Perfect timing. High pick, you can bring in new coach and have $$ to spend, hell if you can get the team to 8-8 your first year, you’ll probably get an extension…DOn’t worry, I doubt Mark is smart enough to know he’s being bamboozled.

    Bad McGloin is back. Ugly interception. Fans boo

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

    Teams are forcing him wide and he refuses to cut it back up the field, even to break one tackle and then get down. He veers wide…sometimes for 9 yards, sometimes 4, sometimes -2.
    But he has concrete tendencies that are plan as day to see.

  • Alex7

    You just posted something Matt Millen said regarding talent evaluation. You fail.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    a bit.

  • DJ Johnny

    I only post the Palmer props cuz I always thought he was a guy who just needed a team behind him and he’d do pretty well and I think people pile on him unfairly.

    He’s not a guy who is gonna carry a bad team on his shoulders to hoisting the Lombardi. Heck he may not even get to the playoffs or ever win a playoff game; but he did take over a 4-12 team and clinch a winning season and yes, I think we would’ve won more games this yr with him at qb.

  • Twinkle

    But the fact still remains Phoenix has an NFL caliber QB (got him dirt cheap too I hear) and we have TP and MM.

  • Gdog

    Al had the team going FORWARD at least. Maybe not SB forward, but a contender every year… and NO WAY does he drop CP this year. And look at the two franchises… going in opposite directions…

  • Raider O

    With cap space and a full draft, I’m going to target coaches with experience or potential. I’ll make decisions based on facts/ stats and not a gut feeling.

    After how poorly McGloin played today, not sure if Dennis Allen will get to pick the starting quarterback next week in San Diego

    ——-
    mgloin starter

  • Alex7

    I am happy to see him with a normal franchise. Your luck can’t get much worse than to spend 10 years with the Bengals and Raiders.

  • RaiderLen

    Cute with His picks….So Watson and Hayden will never amount too anything?

    Gotta give those some time.

    Reggie took the crap and cleaned it up and flushed it out.

    Mark Davis understands this. He will get to take His reps in 2014.

    Charles Woodson asked whether he still wants to return to #Raiders “I want to come back more than ever”

    According to @JoshDubowAP the 56 points scored by the Chiefs today are the most ever scored against the #Raiders

  • Gdog

    Are you 12 years old or something? That post was a mess…

  • EMRaiders

    so maybe DA is just trying to make sure we get that top 3 pick… hes a genius!

  • SnBG

    Yes sir. It took the niners a fair piece of time to build their current team also.

  • Plunk-It

    He peed all over himself.

  • The_Civilian_James_Trapp

    $$ to burn, of course he wants to be back

  • trogPOUNDA

    new post freaks

  • Alex7

    and to be fair, he carried the Bengals to the playoffs before being cheap-shotted by the Steelers DL and blowing out his knee.

  • Morilla_00

    I hope he does come back, just for a vet presence.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Well, you’re 53 years old and act like you’re 12, no?

  • Alex7

    did you like that man-to-man defense with Burris running with Jamaal Charles on the swing route?

  • Plunk-It

    Can we just disband as a franchise? For someone who grew up with this team 1976-1985, 1990-1993, and 2000-2002—I can’t take it any more.

  • Raider O

    Raider O for GM.
    Who knows how that will work, but it can’t be worse than RM and DA. 8-22!

  • Raider_Riff

    Thats the thing.

    Every time…AND I MEAN EVERY TIME that DA is in a must win situation, our team craps the bed.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    it’s not an official nfl stat. and it’s stupid.

    they don’t play defense or ST.

    their side plays about 60 out of 130 plays per game. and they pass for about 60% of those 60 plays.

    so they are usually responsible for about 30 out of 130 plays. and they don’t catch the passes or call the plays.

    teams win. qbs pass.

  • Big Tom ‘the hand’ Cable

    Does that make it feel good? We took it pretty hard up the man hole today. No need to fan the flames.

  • 2romes

    You know MCG lost the game today. Pryor hater might want to sway you otherwise. Thought it was Pryor starting the way people are talking around here

  • kenchun24

    Revisionist take – wish the Raids sucked so baad that year of 2011..more than the Hue Jack tease suck but I mean roll with Boller and get Andrew Luck suck. Man… Luck… in S&B…only on my Madden franchise.

  • 0ak R8rs

    No. They paid $25 million over two years. I wouldn’t call that dirt cheap. And he wouldn’t have fared much better this year. I never disputed, however, that despite his quitting/choking/loserness, he was still better than any QB on our roster. That’s obvious. But he wasn’t a long term solution. He wasn’t worth $25 million. And oh, btw, he didn’t wanna be here anymore.

  • Twinkle

    It’s kinda like RGIII….but TP’s arm is way worse.

  • Gdog

    But wait… What does lying and “Osama” have to do with anything we are discussing about the Raiders wheels falling off right now? lol

    You are clearly over your head here. Sorry bubs.. but all Raider fans are cool deep down…

  • Morilla_00

    stay put man, I know it’s hard. I’m right there with you.

  • RaiderDebo

    JaMarcus agrees with you.

  • the authoritative dr robert

    i listened to a lot of hyenas run their mouths and tell me i was an idiot.

    it’s comeuppance.

  • Alex7

    Teams win and lose.
    The Pick 6 and Taiwan Jones fumble were both responsible for 7 points going the other way. And we just don’t have the horses to keep up with a 7 Pro-Bowl team that’s been building for 8 years.

  • Raider_Riff

    This post is all that matters.

  • Alex7

    yes it can. See Art Shell II.

  • kenchun24

    All these DB’s are available in FA pool of Madden right now…no joke, roster update and everything lol

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    And you would know this…how?

  • Alex7

    you seriously didn’t know heading into this season that it was finally full rebuild mode and we’d suck?
