          It would be one of the most dangerous Coner tandums in the NFL. Imagine if you will Raider nation Nnamdi Asaghmua paired up with Antonio Cromartie? Offesive coordinators would have fits trying to game plan for the Raiders every Sunday and quarterbacks wouldn't know what to do on passing downs. It would be a coner tandum the likes that the Raiders haven't had in decades.

     The division rival San Diego Chargers are shopping Cromartie in search for RB depth due to the inevitable departure of LaDanian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles looking to enter Free agency. Cromartie also has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff and the Chargers feel they have 2 more than capable replacements. The Chargers are looking a Back that can come in and start immediately or a 1st round pick to get the best available back in the round.

    Now as a Raider fan I am always looking at players that can actually fit and improve our team immediatelya, and a great player from a division rival with a chip on his shoulder fits us perfectly. He would be and immediate upgrade in the DB department and would make Qbs have to make the tough decision of "who the hell do I pass it to?" Playing the Chargers would be more fun, because Antonio would make them pay for shipping him out. Lastly the Defensive unit as a whole would reap the benefits of having another corner that isn't a liability and 3rd down and would help get them off the field.

     I look at it like this, a trade for Cromartie would cost us 1 RB and a 1st round pick. If we package Darren McFadden and our 1st round pick for Cromartie and San Diego's 1st rounder it would work perfectly. McFadden hasn't lived up to his potential here and maybe a change of scenery can do him so good elsewhere. Micheal Bush is more than capable of caring the load and Justin Fargas when healthy is as good as any back in the league. Getting rid of the early pick in the draft would benefit the Raiders by keeping them from picking unneccesary players that will do nothing but set the team backfor years.....again.

   Heres to hoping that Al is seeing the swme thing that I am and pull the trigger on this and help bring this team back to relevance. Commitement to Excellence so Just Win Baby!
