Ok, so I am in complete understanding of the total "re-build"concept. Last season the Raider Nation was promised that yes even during this re-building and "new era" the Oakland Raiders where still going to be in a position to "Compete" (by no means at all was I nor the rest of the Nation sold on a trip to play offs, but at least better than what we seen)........well we seen where that promise of competition from the warriors in Silver & Black took us...from a place at the dinner table 8-8 down to a bottom feeding 4-12.
Today during free agency we decide to cut 3 guys, allow 3 more to walk and we still plan to cut 6 more players. Not To mention we could lose 1 more player once he visits a team tomorrow and the uncertainty of another player and his future as a Raider. That is a complete roster rape with no vasoline......not even a drink or a kiss on the cheek before shoving your hand up a Franchises ass and pulling the guts out of said ass. Why was this not done last year? Why was there a promise and a failure of the promise then the decision to do what should have been done a year ago?
Dont you think if all of this was done before hand we would now be 1 year into re build process and be heading in the direction of a legitimate franchise (once again) instead of systematically taking I don't know 1,2,3......12 steps back?. Now I know that some of these guys contracts where not coming into play until this season and all that other real technical talk jazz but come on!!..really? If not all some of this roster could have happened last year, they trimmed a little off last season but not to this extent. This was not a trim this was a Reaper with a sithe lobbing off heads and letting them roll into other camps.
I need help to understand, am I just over reacting and somewhere down the black hole of crap there is a silver lining? And I don't want to hear the re build crap again. The reason why is as much as we would like to cop this out to "re building" if these moves that where made give us anything less than an 8-8 season this year let alone if it is worse than last season there will be no Allen and I would be surprised if there is a Mckenzie because one thing I know Mark Davis will not allow and tolerate is another season like the last $h!t show in Oakland.
i know there is someone out there that is reading this that can assure me there is a Method to Mckenzies Madness. As much as I would love to believe there is some hidden agenda and plan that was concived by Allen, Mckenzie and young Mark sitting arround a ouija board and channeling AL and contriving a plan of secret trades and plots that will result in the best FA and draft we have had in decades....... I am pretty sure that is all fantasy and wishful thinking.
