Can we steal DT Michael Brooks From Seahawks already?


Hell, we had him in for a visit to sit down and talk personally to our DL coach.

We should have drafted him when we could. Evil or Very Mad


Books joined the Chargers I think

I've like Holmes since 2011 when he came out. He absolutely killed it at Hillsdale. I used him in a few mocks. I was very pleased when Holmes arrived in Raider Nation and accurately predicted he would make the roster. However, you guys are building up too much now and I would hate for you guys to be disappointed like you were with Nix.

Nix was supposed to be a career backup at RG. In no way shape or form is he a LG. I'm not disappointed in him as much as I knew he didn't have the necessary tools. That being said if you get Derek Hagen type performance out of Holmes you should be happy (a 4WR who comes in and makes difficult catches when he's supposed to despite limited playing time) as Holmes isn't the next Streater.

I've been a fan of Andre Holmes too.

He was looking like the Raiders best WR in preseason hopefully he keeps it up in the regular season.

I'll eat crow

I wondered why we cut Christo over this 30 yr old Muir. Dude was balling today

Want to see
TE Kasa LB Wilson DE Robinson DT McGee WR Criner
Get a shot.
Mastrud I seen enough of the slowest player in the NFL.
Our interior depth is gross
Between Nix, Mady, Cornell no wonder there is no holes in the run game. Still think there has to be more talent on some teams practice squads

So did McGee! He was playin a lot and he was playin good!!

Wilson will get some opportunities later, however with Sio making plays he will have a thought time to get on the field...

Kasa will remain on ST for the majority, since he is really raw and Mastrud is a better blocker, while Rivera is a better pass catcher. Kasa needs time, but hopefully he will be available and usefull next year.

Robinson will stick for one more offseason at least IMO, because of potential they saw in him.

Criner is the biggest question mark to me...don't know what happend to him, don't know why is he still around...

Nix, Mady and Cornell will be fighting for a back up spot next offseason...I can see one of them sticking...

I can see them giving Criner a try this upcoming week. Bulter has been dropping passes and was responsible for two picks so far this season if I remember correctly. Still like the kid and he will grow. Lets give Criner a chance now.

And I really like our LB core going into next season. Not really worried if anyone gets hurt.

Moore, Roach, Burnett(older), Burris, Wilson, Maiva. What is even more impressive is pretty much everyone of those guys can play all three LB spots.

I want to see Criner get a shot and maybe deactivate Butler. Lets see what Criner can do. If he can't get open I would sign WR Joe Adams. I like him coming out of the draft and he could take Jacobys job if he keeps stinking it up

It's a no brainers to sign Montgomery at DE I would part ways with Sanford
When Burris is ready to return in the next week or two I would cut one of DE Crawford or Robinson

Lastly when Watson is back I would want our line depth to be
Barnes McCants
Guroade Nix
Wiz
Brisel
Watson Pashos
We could cut Mady and sign a classy vet like David Carr to be mentor to Pryor and third stringer with championship experience. Of course Pashos Watson Guroade all have to be healthy. Hurry up!
