I'll bet Marshawn Lynch is not a happy camper.


Chiefs drafted Kareem Hunt who is looking like the rookie of the year, Raiders got Marshawn Lynch on his last legs....

Yeah. Hunt fumbled on his very first NFL carry and has been beasting every since. Marshawn has to be disappointed by the way the Raiders are playing. He most likely thought as I did, they would be a contender.


And I would guess that the Raiders thought that Lynch would bring something to the table


Not sure why everyone is being so hard on Marshawn. He's averaging 4.0 YPC and it's not some some Chris Johnson situation where he has has one long run inflating his average; his longest run of the year is 25 yards. Ezekiel Elliot and Todd Gurley are averaging 4.1 and 4.2 ypc, respectively. You can't ask for more than that from a 31 y/o running back in his 11th season.

IT'S. THE. PLAYCALLING.

Our players are not being put in positions to succeed. The only major change on offense was the OC. We didn't go from one of the most dynamic offense in the NFL to being terrible because all of our players regressed.

The line just hasn't been as good as it was last year. You can see it whenever Carr goes into panic mode. The playcalling has indeed been awful.

Ken Norton Jr. fired. Pagano is taking his place.

Pagano was in charge of the secondary this year. This should fix everything, lol.

When does Del Rio get fired. He's feeling the heat. I'm thinking they give him another year but he needs to upgrade his coaching staff on both sides.

Raiders looked a lot of times this year like they were not ready to play. You have way too much talent on that team to under perform like that. Del Rio probably has to go.
