    except palmer cost 14 vs 10 and throws picks every year

  • Alex7

    Schaub has a chance to do better than Palmer’s 8-18 record. I’m cool with that.

  • Thec

    Problem i see though is, why did they not wait until he hit the market???

  • Thec

    Knew we were not taking any of these “flash in the pan” Qb’s…

  • rudegruden

    Reggie was afraid he couldn’t compete with Cleveland.

  • RediaR

    Yes. I am saying that. He’s not that good and he’s a cancer.

  • RaidO

    I know.. They are going to have to pay him $10 mil min….

  • Papertiger

    “It all starts with the QB…Jennifer Aniston…Reggie fired some scouts who were my homies and now I’m all bútt-hurt…”

    Yup. A lot of that today.

  • Thec

    All the news i have read said, “late round pick.
    So what exactly did we give up?
    Anything higher than a 5th or a 6th is too much imo…

  • SR Raider

    Schaub signing hasn’t changed anything at the top of the draft. Should be fun to see when/where we draft our next QB

    Palmer. Did. Not. Want. To. Be. Here.

  • kenchun24

    Reggie didn’t land any pricey, young, second contract FA’s these past weeks…so he needed to trade for Schaub to absorb his 10 mill contract to meet the cap spending requirement’s I guess.

  • Alex7

    Don’t wanna be here at your correct price, see ya later. It’s ok.

  • the swanky socialite dr robert

    He said Oakland residents. Aren’t u an “out of towner”?

  • spiff

    I believe RM will trade up for carr. I think that’s who he wants. not saying I agree . I like carr . don’t wann lose draft picks , but I could see RM doing that…..

  • 0ak R8rs

    He might not come here if he hit the market. Plus, Cleveland was also trying to trade for him. So we had to make a move or risk losing him to Cleveland in a trade.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Cleveland had a trade offer in as well.

  • RTF916

    Incognito’s mental problems are too much of a risk. McKenzie is in no position to gamble.

  • Thec

    Let the shibbidy Shob era commence…

  • RediaR

    Shhhh, he doesn’t need to know.

  • Alex7

    lol, being right and saying I told you so truly never gets old.

  • 559 Raider 87

    Clevleand wouldve been his 1st choice IMO since he knows Kyle Shanahan’s offense

  • Ted Stosterone

    Don’t the Raiders play Texans this year? That adds some interest to the soap opera.

  • Alex7

    we were 4-12. If anyone can take a risk, it’s a 4-12 team. Not like there’s a playoff team that can be messed up by one guy here.

  • spiff

    pretty much……….

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Btw the play Carroll used in SB with Harvin is one he was victimized with playing Oregon State. No one has run that play as well as Cooks did last year. Cooks a lot like Harvin as well and is polished in a pro system no learning curve.

  • kenchun24

    Yeah…Reggie “I like my picks” McKenzie better not have given up anything more than a 6th rounder IMO. Rumor’s floating that he gave up a 6th and a 4th, this or next year I’m not sure.

  • Twinkle

    Haven’t been paying attention huh? Cleveland has needed a QB since Sipe and every draft they pick anything but.When they finally realize the error of their ways they draft the most over hyped kid they can find out of Notre Dame and place the weight of the world on his back and wonder what went wrong.

  • RaiderDirt

    Personally i like the trade…

    Let him compete threw, if he wins the job, he gets 10mil we lose a six rd pick…

    With this trade Reg has many options for trade down, to pick up more 2nd rd & sec day picks..

    The only way if i was Reg i wouldn’t trade down if Mack was there at five, personally i believe he’s the next Lawrence Taylor if use properly…

    Sims,Allen,Carrington are still out there & if Wilford is released …get him Reg..

    Jackson trade for a 3rd or 4th rder would be awesome& a franchise changer, but unlikely… Fingers still crossed though..

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Yep

  • Alex7

    in between? We kinda went 4-6 and 4-12 with him.

  • Twinkle

    He’ll be fine sitting with Pryor and watching Matt.

  • kenchun24

    4-12,4-12 and no plan other than desperate spinning wheels moves by Reggie is all I see.

  • Twinkle

    And that differs from their M.O. in what way ?

  • spiff

    exactly why they will take a qb at 4…. oh yeah I pay attention they needed a qb since kosar……..

  • kenchun24

    Yup, fan = FANatic.

  • Nwr8r

    Exactly.

  • ghost to the post

    The raiders are going to draft Schaub a weapon in the first. I’m hoping its Watkins.

  • kenchun24

    Why does it always seem like the Raiders get hosed on trades? Al/Hue or Reggie regime. It’s like a cancer for the org.

  • Jano

    Herm Edwards is an idiot. He once said Kevin Kolb is going to be a superstar.

  • MuthaFknZeus

    There is a reason he isn’t coaching.

  • Twinkle

    I’ve always respected his opinions for the main reason that he was the donkey beat writer for years before he hitched on with espn.It was amazing to me that he gave a fair analysis of us while he covered the West and now he is their SF guy.Not sure if that is a promotion or demotion.It smacks of the latter but i’m biased.

  • Thec

    With that move, the Raids have single handily changed the whole dynamics of the draft.

  • Thec

    Those NFL teams that thought we were taking one of those flashy new cars now have to change the draft board…Look for some trade up trade down activity.

  • Twinkle

    You think..?…….I’m of the opinion that we just got an expensive back up for Matt…….we’ll see.

  • HELLSBELLS

    If we do trade or Jackson the draft would be wide open. Trade back pick up a two thn pick away. Recoup you trade loses by trading back. It’s do or die for Reg looks like he going out on his feet.

  • Thec

    BTW Watkins is a baller no doubt however, this draft is WR deep.
    Just go BPA that is not a QB. If he is then so beit. We stil need a S, and more D TRENCHMEN… Pass rusher would also be nice.

    He’s ready to be flung under the bus now…….wait ? are you kidding lol
