screwed again ! just when you thought we had seymour wimbley and miller locked down the league decides throws out wimbleys 3.5 mil extension costing oakland 7mil and possibly our starting te that bein said wtf !watching the raiders front office is like drinking a slurpee too fast (brainfreeze!)
locking down seymour for more than 1yr was great but after giving a 1st ,investing millions upon millions over the last 2 offseasons on a player who says he actually wants to retire a raider at a time most free agents would not even take our calls ,and not come out of it with a long term deal ?
we cant afford to keep namandi our most prodctive consistant performer for half a decade and then hand routt champ bailey money ?
no deal for zack miller our most productive offensive player for several seasons but we got millions upon millions upon millions for a wr who has amassed less than 500 yds in 2 yrs , anyone notice what guys like miller and heap can mean to a hue jackson offense ?
i love what cameron wimbley brought to oakland but for 10.5 mil our front office cant get a long term deal done ? not to mention its alot of cheddar to shell out when it looks like were returning to a system that will not be blitzing its linebackers and safties
nevermind a total inability to get anyone locked down for several years , how does a front office with any vision of the future allow themselves to get to a place where half your starting d line 4 outa 5 o line men your 4 best players star cb te de 12 starters contracts all come up in a year you dont have a 1st rd pick or enough draft pick to fill the holes we cant overpay freeagents to fill ,were paying out hundreds of millions without getting anyone locked down for more than a year or two
i understand the coaching change god bless cable for what he did for the raiders he had to teach this team to play football all over again, but unfortunatley were gona see more and more teams having to make tough decisions such as this to keep their star coordinators look at st louis you nail the pick your qb prospect lives up to your wildest dreams and now he has to start from scratch and learn a new system in a year there will probably be no mini camps and who knows what well have for training camps, speaking of qbs learning new systems look for campell to break out this is the 1st time he hasnt had to learn a new system every time he got it down they switch the playbook on him ,ive gotten used to the fact that unlike the old days we wont get a bob sanders atogwe shockey a gaither a haynesworth a sidney rice, we cant lock down our star cb and just like woodsen will have to watch him win a ring for someone else, i understand the coaching change ,glad seymours hangin round but to quote martin sheen in appacolypse now " i see no method at all "
