Just when you think.......better yet.....HOPE AND PRAY that the Raiders make some intelligent moves in the off season........THEY GO AND DO THIS!
I just don't understand the method behind the madness of Al Davis' decisions sometimes. Does he put the players photo's on a dart board and whoever he hits....thats who keeps in the roster?! I was under the impression that the off-season was to do research, do evaluations,etc, to find and or train people to make the team better the next year. Is Al Davis' purposely trying to tank the team? Doubtful....not likely! But you tend to wonder when you hear about moves like this. Hopefully its not true, but where there's Smoke in Oakland......Al Davis has set a fire.
The most disturbing and sometimes (especially for the last 7 years at least) disappointing thing to me in the off season is this: FANS KNOW what the team needs to get better. FOOTBALL ANALYSTS KNOW what the team needs to get better. THE PLAYERS KNOW what the team needs to get better. The only person without a CLUE is Al Davis. Most people will say that we need O-Line and D-line help the most. Then Line Backer, WR and maybe QB and then DB.
That won't mean diddly squat to Al Davis on Draft day though. I somehow think that he is sitting in his arm chair, with a bib on, wearing orthopedic shoes,eating applesauce, and salivating over Taylor Mays, Bruce Campbell and Dez Bryant. Say it aint so Al!
Let the Face Palming Begin!
