    Just happen to catch Wheel Of Fortune for the 1st time in a while. Two things:

    1. Why do these idiot contestants by vowels when the puzzle is obvious and everyone knows what it is. Is there some trophy for getting all the letters to the puzzle?? Makes my eye twitch.

    2. Does everyone realize that Vanna White is a millionare and all she does is touches a square?? Doesn’t even flip the letter no more, just touches the square. Only says a few words at the end of the show. Best and EASIEST job in America.

    Oooo, live shat. Can’t miss that. And first. As usual.

  • Morilla_00

    I think you need to buy a “u”.

  • SaintKaufman

    I bet she’d make more touching balls.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Just 2 things that comes to mind every time I stumble upon that show.

  • 0ak R8rs

    So I guess it’ll be a good problem to have, but I was kinda expecting Criner to get cut this year. If he follows up his OTAs and makes the roster, we r gonna lose someone we don’t wanna lose.

    Jones
    Streater
    Little
    Holmes
    Criner
    Dmoore/Butler/Davis/the 2 scrubs we signed earlier in the week.

    That is, if we carry 6. If we carry 5, which I doubt, a WR cut is gonna hurt. On the bright side, it’s been a long time since this team has had to make any cuts that really hurt. Sign of progress I suppose.

  • 0ak R8rs

    How’s it “as usual”. You’re here like once a week.

  • 0ak R8rs

    If we weren’t taking a WR in the first or second, and they way the draft fell, we shouldn’t have, in retrospect it’s a good thing we didn’t draft a WR at all. No need for anymore #2s or #3s. We r stacked w them.

  • Myopinion

    I wouldn’t count out Greg Jenkins yet either. I still have hopes for him. Return ability, a quicker guy, and an ex qb which sometimes is a big help for wrs.

  • Myopinion

    Also I’d be suprises to see little over Moore, criner either. But if we get enough wrs to really step up and look good. I could see a situation where Moore could be traded.

  • 0ak R8rs

    I’m thinking of Jenkins as a ST guy that makes the 53 but doesn’t spend much time in the 46.

  • 0ak R8rs

    My list wasn’t necessarily in order. But Moore better wake the fck up. He’s done nothing the last two years to guarantee a roster spot. I’d take a 4th for him in a heartbeat.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I thought you were he? Wait, he’s 666. And 4 More Years. I think. It gets confusing..

  • 0ak R8rs

    It does.

  • Myopinion

    I’m torn on him. I really like him and I think he did well with Pryor. But I also count streeter/jones as locks. I also think Holmes should pretty much be a lock. I really like butlers athletic ability and would hate to get rid of a project like that only 1year in. I like Jenkins as a 6th wr, I think he could end up a good wr and he adds value as a returner. So I would like Moore to stay cause he did show some crazy upside, but at the same time with only one year on his contract, and maybe having a little trade value, if we could trade him for a upside player at a different position. Makes it a tuff one.

  • Myopinion

    How does that work though? If we keep 6wr wouldn’t he have to be the 6th? Otherwise technically you’re carrying 7.

  • 0ak R8rs

    That’s my point. Barring a trade, there’s gonna be at least 1 WR cut we aren’t gonna like.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Well you don’t have to suit him up. Just like Criner most of last year. Obviously at that point he can’t contribute on ST either tho. So it’s a problem either way potentially. Too early to predict, but he may be in trouble. Particularly if Carrie can return punts and Atkinson makes the roster to return kicks. I see Atkinson being a final day cut tho honestly.

  • Myopinion

    Yeah, I think the end of the 53 is gonna be a tuff one at many positions. I think in some cases the little bit better player may be cut because of practice squad eligibility. That’s why I’m not that against no access to Otas. When you have some good players you want the rest of the nfl to know as little as possible.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Yea. Good point. Can’t hide them in preseason tho.

  • Myopinion

    Yeah your good point kinda beats up my good point. That’s why I’m not totally against trading Burnett/Moore etc. if you have younger players you really like at those positions under them and you can bring something back in return, it makes it interesting.

  • Dakota

    Let’s go kings!

  • 0ak R8rs

    I have no problem trading vets for youth or picks. This team needs to be making moves constantly. Burnett is a solid LB. But he’s not the future. If you’re not building you’re dying.

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    Kory sheets is da man!!!

  • 0ak R8rs

    They don’t even know how to play till they’re down 2 goals.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    @VicTafur ahhhhhhhh man, I was looking forward to it

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    TP2 baby…making strides in Seattle!!! Kory sheets gonna be the man!!!

  • 0ak R8rs

    Pryor sucks.

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    Cause you played in the NFL when? Dudes needs serious coaching….He has heart, Just needs time. Something we gave up on.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Do you watch football?

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    Lots of it all the freaking time!! I’m a Raiders fan since I was 10….cmon man…

  • 0ak R8rs

    It’s been 4 years. He sucks. And something else…… Oh yea, he’s not a Raider. Fck him.

  • Dakota

    Maybe in year 4 in the nfl he will finally learn how to throw?

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    Ummm who were our QB coaches??? John Delaflippio…lol….who else??? Guys he needs coaching from a good QB Coach. I think Gannon could of been the guy to help Pryor get over that hump. Also Seattle has a better line than us….maybe not now….but definitely a improvement.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Pryor sucks.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    He can throw badly just fine. Needs to learn to stand tough and take a hit on occasion.

  • 0ak R8rs

    And Pryor asked Gannon to work w him. Gannon said no.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    They do have Gallery. Or did he retire?

  • Tyler Angelica Miller

    Maybe…..he will learn.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Or 3 years in college. Or 3 years in high school…….

  • xraided

    you dont just learn QB my man… you either have it or you don’t. one doesn’t need to be in the NFL to know this. that’s why there are so few that succeed at the position.

    he’s a career backup at best. Tarvaris Jackson 2.0

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Pryor didn’t work hard enough to suit Gannon. But neither do ants or bee’s.

  • 0ak R8rs

    True. Nobody worked like Gannon.

  • xraided

    retired a couple of years ago

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    FIRE REGGIE NOW.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Comparing Pryor to Tavaris is an insult to Tavaris.

  • xraided

    LMAO

  • xraided

    why?!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Gruden forgot how old his children were. ‘cuz he was there from 5AM ’til midnight. He was a slacker in Gannon’s book.
