Tim Kawakami posted some interesting thoughts via his Twitter last night (I've combined all 5 tweets into the quote below):
When Al fired Art Shell after that season, he blamed Shell for not taking Leinart. I'm not sure Art was even in the draft room, but oh well.
Shell, of course, had to explain the Huff pick that day. We asked him about Leinart & Shell said sure, they considered "Mike" Leinart.
VYoung went #3, so that means he went FOUR picks ahead of Raiders' #7. That's why I'm so good at math, if you give me a few tries at it.
Do you guys think Al might still be interested in Young? And would you want him to join the Raiders or are you more confident in Campbell?
