Derek Carr and Tom Brady ended season tied for most drops suffered in NFL with 44. Amari Cooper alone had 18

With Carr, Del Rio in place, #Raiders could have same opening day QB/coach in b2b seasons for 1st time since Gannon/Callahan in 02-03


Funny yet depressing.

David Amerson tops PFF’s award list for Most Improved Player

Quote:
Winner

David Amerson, CB, Oakland Raiders

Amerson was the Redskins’ second-round pick in 2013, and saw the field in every game during his rookie season. He struggled with consistency throughout the year, and finished with a relatively low coverage grade, which placed him 92nd out of 110 cornerbacks. Last season his coverage grade dropped even further, and he slid all the way down to 106th at his position. Amerson was released after Week 1 this season, and was subsequently picked up by the Raiders, where he’s been a completely different player ever since.

The former NC State standout posted a positive production grade in 2015, despite being targeted 104 times (sixth-most among NFL CBs). On those targets, he allowed just 58 completions and one touchdown. He tied for fifth overall with 13 passes defensed, and also picked off four passes. Last season, he allowed more completions (61) on fewer targets (91), and an NFL-high 10 touchdowns when targeted. Quarterbacks had a 140.2 rating when targeting Amerson in 2014; this season, that number has dropped to 62.7. His improvements have brought him up to an 83.4 overall grade, good for 15th out of all cornerbacks this season.

Quote:

Third runner-up

Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders

Carr finished with our second-worst overall production grade last season. He’s jumped all the way up to 10th this season, with an 81.6 overall grade. Carr has made improvements across the board, but the most obvious improvement was his higher efficiency when throwing the ball downfield. On 71 deep passes last season, Carr managed just 15 completions and two touchdowns. This season—on four fewer deep passes (67)—he has 25 completions and an astounding 12 touchdowns.

If he repeats next season then this could be a better reclamation project/player than rolling the dice on Aldon Smith Shocked


Feels good to have one CB on the team that's bona fide solid. Another year in the system might bring more improvements........Reggie just has to get somebody across from him Cool

So I may potentially (and this is very much still in the air) be moving to SF for a job, I still have to interview but I need to decide whether or not migrating is worth it to me. For those who would know, I've heard its very expensive, but what would I be looking at for a studio/1 bedroom apartment?

From my talks to people in the 49ers forum, most suggested north oakland or north of Oakland. Some suggested Temescal or Rockridge within Oakland as a relatively inexpensive place that would not be too difficult to commute into SF. I can drive or take the train, but the train is preferred.

Any tips or advice that I haven't asked about?

I appreciate it, guys!

You can always try to live somewhere relatively close to a BART station. I would recommend East Bay for that reason. BART will take you to SF and there are multiple stops in the city. Not sure where your work would be... but yea look into that if you decide you do want to move out here.

I feel like it will be difficult to find a cheap place to live on your own.

God Carr has so much arm talent. He makes such hard throws look routine. He truly has some of the best pure skill for a QB in the league. If he can cut out some of the stupid mistakes and work on consistency, we will have a very special QB.

Is Hayward a bad area? Looks to be relatively cheap and right near the BART.

3 Raiders on the Super Bowl 50 Gold team. Upshaw, Shell and Guy all cracked the list.

Concerning news re Mario Edwards. His neck injury is possibly genetic.

I know nothing is decided yet but...*sigh* we didn't need to add to the needs of the team going into the offseason but it looks like we have with this and Tuck officially retiring.

Hayden on 95.7 the game. He talked about needing to get a lot better. I hope he can take it to heart and somehow contribute next year. Not counting on it though. He's been a bum as of late.

Parts of Hayward are fine, same with Concord/Pleasant Hill. Dublin is pretty nice and although expensive it's cheaper than city rent. Walnut Creek is nice, but expensive near Antioch/Pleasant Hill. All of those in the East Bay have Bart. Antioch/Walnut Creek/Berkeley/Oakland train goes direct to SF, while Hayward/Dublin you have to transfer if I remember the maps right.

Location of work in SF is also a big deal, Bart goes to many areas but not everywhere.
