Another move made by Mr. Davis paid off yesterday when Bruce Gradkowski led the Raiders to a stunning victory over The Steelers in Pittsburgh. Mr. Davis should get credit for picking him off waivers from Cleveland. Other GM's passed on him and the Raiders grabbed him. For his salary he is the bargain of the NFL season.I credit Coach Cable and Mr. Davis for allowing Bruce to take over the Raiders and allow JaMarcus to go where he deserved. The Bench!

Speaking of Mr. Davis, his first round picks have to be questioned but where is the praise for drafting Murphy in the 4th. Check his stats against other receivers in the 4th round.By allowing him to stay in the line-up he is becoming the Player Mr. Davis believed he was drafting.The continung development of the young safety Branch is another point that Mr. Davis does make solid draft picks. Trevor Scott is also having a solid season in his 2nd year.

Great job Mr. Davis , you should feel proud about your GM duties and your Raiders.

Next job for the GM....JaMarcus would look better in black and gold like the Saints. Go make a deal for anything and lets go with Gradkowski.
