Wierd Al zheimer picked jamarcus russell should I repeat it jamarcus never mind so Calvin johnson must be out of the league by now right? with kiff the raiders were making progress just like UT under Kiff ,he just didn't have the support or resources hE now has at tUSC BTW I'm a Raiders fan and was a season tix holder when they were in L.A.

When you have the #1 pick in the draft, no one wants to trade up, you take the best player available...and that wasn't pimp daddy. That was my point.
Not much you can do with a million dollar arm and a ten cent brain.

He should do well before the ncaa comes knocking.......... again
The 2nd half of the season they did not, although the NFC West did. My point is that a halfway decent QB with special players around him can be successful, e.g., Eli Manning. Wouldn't hurt to get rid of AZ's coach either...the guy is huge delta bravo.
chill I’m just playing. The Raider’s picking Jamrcus was one of the happiest days of my life because we got CJ. You could make the argument that at the time it was the right move. 2007 was a very weak QB Draft which is why JMAC got pushed up in the first place. The Raider’s IIRC desperately needed a QB. QB’s win SB’s not WR’s. At the time I thought they should have traded down, but I understood the pick then and now.
Ken Whisenhunt is a good Coach, but he should of give Matt Leinart a chance
Yeah I feel you, but the NFL is weird like that, during drafts.
You see it every year with qbs, with 3-4th rd talent, being drafted into 1st rd money.
The defense was pretty damn good by the middle of the year last year.
Held Cal to 9 points
Held ND's offense to just 10 points (additional 7 were on a KOR)
Gave up a lot to Stanford - but 22 of the points were in OT with a very short field.
Held UW to 17 points (avg 35 PPG against everyone else)
Held Oregon to 7 1st half points, lowest every for a Chip Kelly coached team. Oregon's offense scored just 28 points (avg 47 against everyone else)
Held UCLA to 0.
Let's agree to disagree on The Whiz. He's getting by right now on their defense, the emergence of Patrick Peterson on ST's, and Fitz using his bear claws to snag everything within his grasp. He still does not know who his QB will be. He can say Kolb, however, that guy needs to stay in a full game.
Eli’s not halfway decent. The guy is legit top 10 QB in the NFL. It’s not like he was throwing to a team full of Calvin’s either. Hick’s, Cruz, and MM were very good as a total group but none of them by themselves are elite WR’s.
If Eli’s halfway decent what’s Mark?
They didn’t suck but they weren’t very good either. Pretty mediocre.
One of the larger losses of perspective I've seen this calendar year
Eli being a "legit top 10 QB in the NFL" means that the NFL has a void of legit QB's.
Mark is in a system that is not made for his gunslinger mentality. With that said, he needs to take the next step.
The NFL is a qb league, dont shoot the messenger. So yes, Eli made the right passes, and its the wrs job to catch them.
I wasnt dissing Fitz. If the Cards had a legitimate qb, they would put up w's alongside Fitz's numbers.
We'll see this year, don't forget he's had only one losing season and took us to the Super Bowl

I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure. There isn't a single part of his process that he allows an ounce of fail to be apart of.He'll catch bad breaks like everyone else but his process is air tight.
It's a passing league, however, that does not mean the NFL is oozing with QB talent.
It's early. He's only going into year 3. If you're right, though, we should see it on the field this year. No more giving up 30, 40, 50 points.
You are correct. He is meticulous.
He needs to tell his dad to retire and go get another elite under 45 year old defensive mind in there. Monte is blast to be around but he's not on the level he was.
Again we will be playing for a national title this year.I hope to see Michigan their also.
I understand you’re still probably mad about what happened with Matt in Arizona but why would they need to get rid of the coach that won a SB as a OC and got the franchise to their first SB appearance in franchise history, and to this point has had one losing season?
