If It Ain't Broke - FIX IT!

Yeah - you read it right - a Yogi Berra like saying which is my SMH moment for all the pundits and writers ( the talking idiots).

I go out today and pour over mock draft sites and what I see over and over again is : TO FIX THE RAIDERS just add ______________________.

Wil Brinson at CBS.com is another in a long line of talking idiot.

"Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M: The disastrous, attempted Rodger Saffold signing resulted in a failed physical and the Raiders sitting on a line that features Austin Howard at right tackle and a big gaping hole on the other side. Maybe it works out for them and they land Matthews as a result."

It is this kind of idiot - the kind who writer for a living who should just shot off their brainless stream.

Did it ever occur to anyone - Saffold was never the plan for LT, but a versatile piece RM was attempting to build here in Oaktown? Is Matthews the instant media band-aid for everything? Are there always only 1st round grades on every good LT in the NFL?

Please grant me this rage fellow Nation dwellers - we have a young talented tackle in Menelik Watson - did we use a 2nd on him to play RT? Could we not get a franchise LT in this year's draft if we needed one?

In as much as I do not believe that Donald Penn would have been the "answer" I do now see we have Barnes in place, young McCants, Watson, and the brutish Howard.

We do not need FIXED we need to be built. We do not NEED Alex Mack - he would be a bonus and create a dilemma. (plus cost a fortune!

All this being said - I would jump for joy if Matthews was our draft pick. He ranks there or higher and is talented and versatile having played every OL position according to his coaches.

Tired of everyone having the band aid to put on our organization! Whew!! Respira chavo!
