Even after watching and being an Oakland fan since 1966, I still cant get a round-turn on the personnel moves. I had hoped for Miller and Asoumgha to remain Raiders for life.......
During the lockout that suspended FA there was much talk concerning the retention of Nnamdi and Zach Miller. The Nation pretty much had said bye bye to Gallery who wanted too much cash, enabling him to be denied and leave to pursue his sea-daddy, Cable, in Seattle.
Miller and Asoumgha were different stories. The mysteries surrounding the machinations of Mr Davis' choices/actions didnt really point a direction, for me at least, where we would go with retaining these guys that pretty much all of us agreed were heart and soul players, and needed in Oakland for success.
Miller had no catches against Atlanta in Seattle's 30-28 loss. Asoumgha was burned by Crabtree in Phillie's meltdown agains the 49ers.
Philadelphia is suffering from surrendering ten touchdown passes. This video link says it all:
The myth of being a shutdown corner has evaporated with his departure to Philly. As one astute commenter said in another thread, he plays man, but in Philly they don't, so what did they expect?
Seattle Miller has 5 catches for 41 yds/0 TDs. Gallery is once again, broke-dick.
***Kevin Boss has 6 catches for 114 yards/0 TDs and an average of 19 yards.
