Before you all start blasting me on this just hear me out.

I know that Howard's total 7 pick's puts him in first with linebackers. 6 of those came in one season. It's time we stop waiting for that season to come around again.

I think that the Raiders would be better off if they leave Trevor Scott in at the weakside linebacker. He does a much better job of getting off of blocks and sacking the quaterback.

Trevor Scott plays with alot of heart and passion, which is what this team needs. I also love his motor. Going back to his rookie season (last year) when the Raiders were playing the Jets he got leveled. Got back up and still made the sack. That's what I want for this team.

Then the Raiders can resign Kirk Morrison and move him to the strongside. So the Raiders can sign or draft that run stuffing middle linebacker. I love Morrison, I just love Morrison on the outside better.

So Thomas Howard thanks for your time as a Raider. I just think that it's time to move on. 

Off topic I would like to thank Ben Everley for trading Randy Moss to me for Ronnie Brown. Nice trade.
