Silver And Black Pride: The Raiders should model their front seven after the 49ers’ fearsome unit
Given what the 49ers have done this year, it’s relevant to revisit this article from last week. It’s easy to say that because the 49ers sucked for so long, they were able to draft good pieces. And yes that’s absolutely true, but that’s not the entire story. Fred Warner was a third round draft pick, Dre Greenlaw was drafted in the fifth round last year, and Kwon Alexander was signed in free agency. You know where I’m going with this.
Yeah. That old ass free agents & UDFA philosophy really works pic.twitter.com/CiXaE530CO— Sin City Silver & Black Pride (@SilverBlakPride) January 17, 2020
This absolutely has to change. There’s no excuses for it anymore.
The New York Times: The Raiders Left Oakland. The 49ers Want to Take It.
The Bay Area showcases the definition of the bandwagon fan, and trust me, there’s nothing more annoying than a Bay Area bandwagon fan. Once the Bay Area bandwagon fan likes a team, they price out the people who actually know the players’ names and stuck by the team during the dark times. I, for one, hate the Bay Area Bandwagon fan. All of them can be Santa Clara 49ers fans.
Exactly. Exactlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. https://t.co/y8bXuLTB21— Sin City Silver & Black Pride (@SilverBlakPride) January 20, 2020
NBC Sports: Jon Gruden believes playing better in cold will help Raiders evolution
I mean, I think drafting and signing linebackers who can actually play in pass coverage will help the Raiders evolution, but sure let’s concentrate on cold weather games. Free agency and the NFL Draft need to hurry up and come.

ESPN: Tom Brady ‘open-minded’ about playing elsewhere
On Saturday night, Brady was in Las Vegas for UFC 246, where he crossed paths with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis. Photos of them together generated predictable buzz on social media, highlighting how Brady’s future is not just arguably the biggest story of the upcoming NFL offseason, but in all of sports.
My first thought when I saw the pictures from Saturday night was to get mad at Mark Davis, but then when I thought about it, I bet Brady is using him to gain leverage for a monster contract from the Patriots or another team. Mark can smile at him all he wants, but Mayock and Gruden are happy with Derek Carr.

I mean, he has to say this of course, but the Packers look like they are more than a couple players away from being in the same class as the 49ers. They got smacked by them twice this season in extremely uncompetitive games.
