    Jobs on the line

  • trogPOUNDA

    did it to flynn who had better numbers than schaub. it was a nobrainer

  • R8derdiehard

    Raiders will be all over nfl network tonight

  • Blackholepriest

    I think this leave by Schaub may have been the tell all. But they needed to get everybody on board by going to the vets on the team first

  • plunkhead

    DA will be COY

  • the super genius dr robert

    Interesting to see if he stays at corner or goes to S. He and Dowling would give us two big safeties.

    Glazer: Raiders players told Carr is starter . . .

  • Blackholepriest

    I will be on the radio and form media I can be on this year begging Raider fans to be patient with this kid. He’s got the goods and they know it.

  • 0ak R8rs

    Confirmed on nfl radio. Miller and Kerwin talking about it now.

  • I suppose the Black Eyed Peas did play at the Superbowl, maybe Carr will win one of those with us…

  • RaidingTexas

    A good QB can make a coach. See Bill Belichek, Jon Gruden, Jimmie Johnson.

  • 0ak R8rs

    That’s what Pat Kerwin just said. He said give DA an extension NOW!

  • xraided

    now it gives the NY Wets a week to gameplan for him though… i would have rather waited.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    There is a new post, you guys.

  • plunkhead

    He is at Betty Ford being treated for a broken heart, tennis elbow, pain killer pill addiction and his old lady left him

  • Goldie7

    NP fellas

  • PlunkforHOF

    Maybe DA is not as dumb as some here think

  • Umrao32

    Just got the last bit on XMNFL Radio. What did Miller and Kerwin say?

  • Umrao32

    Reggie Mack looks like a putz for trading and signing Schaub.
    But saves face for drafting Carr…..

  • Blackholepriest

    I feel like RINGO in The movie Tombstone when he walks up yo who he thinks is Wyatt and says “I gotta tell ya’ I didn’t think you had it in ya'”. Only to find it to be Doc Holiday.

  • 0ak R8rs

    They were all for it. Said great call by DA.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    Not really. After all, all teams passed on him in the first round. We got him at number 5 in the second round. That is how NOT sure teams were of him.
    However, RM, we had been told, ALWAYS wanted him, but saw Mack handed to him so took him.
    The point is that RM could NOT have known if the qb he wanted was going to be there. He had to have a qb.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    I would suppose the t-shirt makers and jersey makers are printing as we speak.

  • RaiderBob

    Carr is officially starting

  • Blackholepriest

    DA’s. Response..”I’m ya’ huckleberry”!! Get down some DA!!!

  • yes i did thanks

  • Says on NFLN that Carr is starting like RaiderBob said

  • Blackholepriest

    Let’s give credit where it’s due. It was widely reported that Reggie was very high on two QBs. Derek Carr and Zach Mettenberger and I was equally as high on both. However there was no way I would’ve taken Carr at 5 overall. Too many sure things at that point. Where we got Carr was just pure luck how GM left him there at that point is just a gift. But you gotta be smart enough to accept the gift…….period

    NFL practice squad players make a minimum of $6,300 per week that they are on the practice squad. However, there is no limit to how much a team can pay a player on the practice squad.

  • Wow , what a night , Dunn pops one out, and we are going to shoot down the airplanes , I need a kleenex

  • Que

    Oh my god Priest……..remembering and giving cred. Awesome! I just hope when nfl defenses start game planning against OUR guy Carr. He’s a Raider so he’s OUR guy. I hope everyone will stay Even keel

  • Que

    again I always sit back and laugh at how this blog blows up . dennis is openminded and this is his first year with some talent.
