NICE POST AS USUAL...MY $ ON MELNICK TO START THE SEASON AS OUR RT AND BERGSTROM AS LG...OH YEAH AND C WOOD TO BE OUR FS !!!!!!!!
4 weeks ago on Oakland Raiders' camp battle winners predictions
Nice re grade....based on the fact that we had 5 picks when Reggie came last year (he traded to get the extra 7 and signed/did n't sign FA's to earn a compensatory and traded back 3 times) and came out with 10 makes this an A_to start......Gets day 1 starter in DJ, very possible that Watson starts over Holding Falsestart (Barnes) day one two. Be VERY surprised if Sio does not start....Wilson will add depth AND PUSH for a starting gig and I think with coaching (didnt have any last year...was a consideration for top pick b4 2012 season started) will become not only our starter, but better than Gannon in a year or two. He has the temperament but more skills. Reminds me of Stabler actually. The 2 TE;s will battle out for a starting gig and provide depth - awesome for round 6....Lataviyus just may make DMC expendable after this year and has Bush like beast qualities...worst pick was WR, like the Duke FA WR better....Bass can learn from Carter- sleeper pick and lastly, Stacy, the DT with a suspect background, he should know this is his last chance, which may be enough to get him focused to play all out and become at least a rotational DT. Got to be an A for this draft!
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Upon Further Review: Re-grading the Oakland Raidersâ 2013 Draft
Creating a mock draft is so tough especially when it is a new regime. Like the picks....gotta go PASS RUSH early....I favor Dion over Ansah and love taking a DT next.....my guess is they will take an OT rather than OG though.....thanx for the work as always....Go Raiders!
2 months ago on Raiders 7 round mock draft
Great read.....until this last free agent signing flurry, thought Reggie had to trade out of the #3 spot to fill the roster. Now maybe not so as he can take his impact player (if he likes one) at #3 overall. Still think hell trade down,but maybe not far.
2 months, 1 week ago on Multitude of signings allow Raiders draft flexibility
great numbers...hungry players from playoff teams.....and proves a point....even though we dont have names on our roster at this point, I expect at least 3 more wins cuz of new coaches, 2 more wins cuz our opponents are over confident and 2 more wins cuz we actually play like a team. Guess that makes us 11-5 in 2013!
2 months, 2 weeks ago on By the Numbers: 2012 vs 2013 Raiders defensive tackles
nice work....I can see Buffalo going all the way to #1 ahead of Jacksonville for Geno. Can also see cards trading up with Detroit to ensure they get top OT...cant imagine raiders not trading out of #3...my guess is the 49ers..would love to splash and have ammo to move up.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on 1st round mock by Tyler Hunt
@Raiders52 @dondiraider That one hurt...but give myers his due....the boy can catch....as for Ausberry,new coach so new chance...like him, hope he is our answer.
3 months, 1 week ago on Patient Raiders will look to leverage deep draft to find some gems
@Harder2000 @dondiraider Perhaps this is true...I find it interesting that we kept Briseil of the ZBS....will also be interesting to see what GO thinks of the other two TE that Dirt Knapp dismissed.
I wonder who isnt sold on Meyers..Mck or DA or GO?
nice info...as a numbers guy, there is so much more to consider but no bettter place to start ....great info......CP3 could definitely benefit from someone making a play like streeter did and resulted in a TD drive..those were very few unfortunately.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on By the Numbers: Carson Palmer in 2012
the fact we fired Knapp and got a guy who at least proclaims to take advantage of players strength (and has statistics of play makers to back that) in spite of his teams Offensive rankings, it is a step in the right direction....Other than perhaps the Rams talent one year when he was OC, I think our skill position players are better than any hes had to work with. McKenzie really needs to solidify the OL and if he does, our O will be MUCH better in 2013.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on By the Numbers: OC Greg Olson's playcalling tendencies
I LOVE RAIDERS FANS...THE BEST IN THE UNIVERSE!!!!!
Great points on stats and other circumstances..I echo RealRaider and do not think that Asher you are judging GO at all...like corporate financials, they can be misleading without explanations ie was left tackle out all season....continue with your awesome work!

I gotta get my glasses out to read this dude! :)
5 months ago on By the Numbers: a look at new Raiders OC Greg Olson
As alwyas, detailed and logical. Knapp maybe smart, but cant call plays period...gotta go...DHB will be traded or relegate to backup, no longer a statrter UNLESS he finally learns to catch withhis hands in the offseason. Palmer starts and another QB will replace Leinart to compete with TP or the BU QB in 2013
5 months, 3 weeks ago on 2013 Raiders Predictions: Offense
Great article and agree whole heartedly....Without question, we need a pass rusher....either DE or LB....Once we sign a FA or two we may see the direction McK is going....Think we add less in the secondary than most think....tyvon, huff & Mitchel leaves only one opening for a safety....Julio keeps a nickle or dime position with adams getting the other....seem to be high on Ross as CB so we need a legit # 1 CB, but that may be it...and if Ross is better as a safety, then we'd need a number 2 CB....thoughts there?
5 months, 3 weeks ago on 2013 Raiders Predictions: Defense
Hoffman must go or he will screw up royally every game.....and while were at it Knapp did not impress....no adjustments in second half in play calling and protection
9 months, 1 week ago on Week 1, Raiders fall to Chargers 22-14 | September
like the 3 moves...Cumbie to IR, got a LB, traded DB roster spot, got a capable OT, got depth @wr & LB via practice squad...guessing theses more tomorrow....4 more practice guys....guessing Hamilton will go to another teamsine hes not on our practice squad already...thats a bummer.

Nice job especially with last paragraph...spot on...thinking trade for LB rather than wire guy..ur thoughts on that?
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Raiders announce cuts to 53, squad still incomplete | August
As always, well done,,,,,,Loved Al but learned the only constant is change and AL did not....I expect a few more Superbowls this decade!
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Reviewing the Raiders offseason of change | July
nice work as usual....expect Parsons to get an OL spot this year over Colin. I think as with the young WR's the youth of our TE;s may prove to be a blessing...they know they have a legit shot to start, unlike recent years past with Miller & Boss....BTW I expect a HUGE year from CP3!
