    character-wise…day and night? With both Russell and Brees?

  • rudegruden

    They should put population regulations are anyone breeding your genes

  • DKnight007

    I get a kick out of these DA defenders….they act like he really is the answer at head coach for this team….sheesh….how sad…

  • Alex7

    positive Polly.

  • Zymurge

    Trading up for a top 3 pick that isn’t a Peyton Manning type is not a recipe for success. It’s too high risk for the likely return. How’s Snyder feeling about what he paid for RGIII right now, when his latter round backup QB pick is outplaying the guy he traded a ton for to go get?

    Bridgewater is far from a for sure top 10 QB type. He may be very good, may be mediocre, may be the next Akili Smith. If you’re sitting on the #2 yeah, maybe you have to take him. But you don’t break the bank to move up for him, because he isn’t that kind of prospect.

  • LB32

    No, that’s just how sad the D was if it was hanging on a non-starting rookie.

  • DKnight007

    So if half of DA’s staff are not being extended….what the hell is the point of keeping DA than?? Weirdos!

  • Alex7

    $64 million payroll vs $120 million for most of the NFL.
    .
    Is it difficult to comprehend the imbalance of that talent?

  • Alex7

    are you crying?

  • RaiderNik

    Send them all packing.. Da too!

  • BigBenRexor

    Only sad if we have to put up with it for one more year. All the FA’s and Draft picks in the world couldn’t save that hack

  • Alex7

    does this mean the other 20 non-playoff teams are also not extending their assistants? Forgot about that December 30th deadline.

  • Rico Stifler

    Therein lies the problem, there is no such thing as a surefire player in the draft.

    I think you mean Fales. Also, Fales would likely last til the 5th round. If we were to go QB late or mid-round, I’d go Jeff Mathews (Cornell) late or Jimmy Garoppollo (Eastern Illinois) mid round.

    Naw, we will get a bye around one of them, I believe it is league mandated.

  • Zymurge

    How many double digit win seasons and playoff appearance has Alex contributed to in the last couple of years? It’s not a bad bar when you look at it that way.

  • Alex7

    like they saved Callahan and Jim Caldwell? And Norv Turner?

  • Zymurge

    They could have had a better rating but they never got to play against Pryor.

  • W.J

    “just coach-speak at a press conference. nothing more nothing less”

    “Well, what did you expect him to say?”

  • Raider Rick

    The DAVIS way

  • Rico Stifler

    He is very solid actually. it is you who suck…domes in the alley….

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Same old Raiders.

  • Alex7

    that really solved our problem the last 15 years. Great strategy RaiderNik! Way to think through the problem!

  • Chino

    I’m sure you know what I meant but ill waste my time explaining myself anyway. Teddy is listed under 200 lbs. better have a hell of an offensive line.

  • RaiderNik

    4-12, 4-12.. Problem isnt solving it self..

  • Alex7

    still crying? geez. let it all out one time, bud.

  • Zymurge

    Apparently you forgot how bad they were the year without Peyton when Painter started.

  • Chino

    Yeah but isn’t he injury prone? Besides, allen expressed interest in keeping Jennings

  • BigBenRexor

    Was that supposed to be a rebutal or evidence? Because all of those guys did horrible with Talented players.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    LoL

  • Rico Stifler

    Doubt Manziel will have a six at the beginning of his height when he is measured at the combine. Also, Manziel is a total prima donna. A huge character risk….

  • Alex7

    I know, right! It must be the coaches fault for the last 15 years! Definitely not the $64 million payroll compared to $120 of other teams. Don’t mind that.

  • 2romes

    That does make one think twice.

  • RaidO

    DA has proven what as a coach?

    The DA defenders(Alex7) LOL

  • The Big Banana

    Yes, because the most of the NFL has no dead money whatsoever.

    Quit exaggerating.

  • Alex7

    same thing McCarthy proved in GB this year. You can’t win without talent. Mike 2-5 without Rodgers.

  • Chino

    Same old fans.

  • RaidO

    but but but they had talent in 2012..

  • RediaR

    That’s the thing about the excuserers, they throw out all reality, stats and facts.

  • Scourge of the East

    Where’s IGAG?! We need him to tell us what’s going on at the IHOP! Large quantities of pancakes and French toast must be being consumed as Reggie and Mark consider their options. But only IGAG can bring us the scoop!

  • kenchun24

    Most of the QB’s in this class are smallish. The prototype size guys are Bortles, Mettenberg, McCarron, Logan. Rest are short or shrimpy body frame wise.

  • Rico Stifler

    He has had some injury issues but nothing like DMC though. We can keep Jennings and sign Tate. only thing is they are kinda the same type of RB, I think.

  • Alex7

    oh yeah! So many Raiders in the Pro Bowl! Like Jano and Condo and Lechler!

  • kenchun24

    lol…wrong.

  • DKnight007

    haha…lame. Even if DA gets “talent” he won’t know what to do with it….waste of time….

  • Rico Stifler

    Carr is 6’3….

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

    So you believe Teddy’s listed numbers but mock Manziel’s?
    What a load of BS. They both are pretty much what they are listed at.

  • Alex7

    don’t forget about our stud 1st and 2nd rounders of that year.

  • RaidO

    The coaching sucked. DA should be FIRED just for hiring Greg Knapp..

  • Chino

    If anyone deserves to stay, it’s sparano. Did a hell of a job with that line, throughout all the injuries and crap. Wr stepped up too. Tip of the hat to Ted Gilmore.

  • RediaR

    Wilson’s style is running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off and then heaving a hail mary?
