Woeful 2014-15 Season

I'm just not sure why people keep saying Carr is the answer at QB; I simply don't get it. I'm not blaming our WOEFUL season all on Carr, but mark my words: 

If we go through the 2015-16 season with Derek Carr as our starter, THE OAKLAND RAIDERS WILL STRUGGLE.

Sad Day For Raider Nation

I'm watching ESPN's "Number Never Lie," hosted by Michael Smith and Jemele Hill. Smith mentioned the new ESPN NFL Power Rankings and only talked about the top half of the 32 teams and a few teams like the Chiefs, Saints, and Falcons who sit at 19-21 respectively.

Of course the Raiders are rarely mentioned on Sports Center, Numbers Never Lie, First Take, or NFL Insiders. We were in the news last week when former Raiders coach Dennis Allen was "fired on his day off" (Fridays, "how you get fired on your day off Craig?" "They got me on video, say I was stealing boxes." "Stealing boxes, what you tryin' to build, a clubhouse?") ..

I digress with a little dialogue from the comedy "Fridays," starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker because there is no way to defend my embarrassing Raiders. We are the laughing stock of the NFL, which is why we need to stay in the 32nd ranked position of all the NFL Power Rankings, that way, we're first in line for the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Complete the reclamation project by FIRING GENERAL MANAGER REGGIE MCKENZIE, who has absolutely no clue what the hell he is doing. Start rebuilding with Jameis Winston, current Florida State QB. Yes, he's had a few off-the-field incidents but so far, he's not been charged with anything. He was accused of rape, there was no evidence of anything except consensual sex, which is why the matter never went to court. Pittsburgh Steelers' signal caller, Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of TWO rapes, never charged, he's still playing, and the accusations are NEVER mentioned before, during, or after an interview.

Derek Carr has about the same skills as his brother, former NFL journeyman David Carr. D.C. is not the answer at quarterback for the Silver and Black. He is not a leader on the field and does not lead by example. You can't be intimidated by some of your teammates and expect them to show you any respect, especially if you're not "balling."

Terrelle Pryor was a better overall QB, much more dangerous on the field, and more of a leader than Derek Carr will ever be. Pryor is currently the quarterback of the BC Lions in the Canadian Football League. Maybe he will win a couple of Grey Cups and make it back to the NFL, like Warren Moon and a few other QBs. Pryor deserves another shot.

McKenzie Needs To Go Too!

Raiders General Manger Reggie McKenzie needs to get the axe just like Dennis Allen. He let a few good, young free agents go, brought in old, washed up players, traded for Matt Schaub and started Derek Carr's sorry azz. 

Reggie also let the best QB on the roster go (that's not saying a lot, Pryor was still green but had tremendous athletic ability coupled with a 4.35 40-yard time).

Many uninformed, pseudo, Raider fans disagree with me on Terrelle Pryor but we will have to agree to disagree. I'm not saying TP was necessarily the answer at QB but he was better than what we had and he's better than the BUM QBs currently on the Oakland Raiders roster.

McKenzie, you are the weakest link .... Goodbye!

Raiders Coach Dennis Allen Fired!

Word out of Oakland is that Coach Dennis Allen has been canned.

He stated in his press conference after the drubbing the Raiders took, for the world to see:

"Obviously, we did not play well. Turned the ball over, we did not stop them on defense and we gave up too many explosive plays."

"We’ve got the bye week coming up. We’ve got a lot of things we’ve got to look at and a lot of self-evaluation we’ve got to go through to get this thing turned around."

Too bad that want include Allen. Dennis Allen is OUT. As soon as the Raiders arrived back from London, Allen was given the news.

The interim head coach will probably be former Dolphins head coach, Raider assistant coach Tony Sparano. Maybe he will have the foresight to bench Derek Carr's sorry azz. I'd rather see McGloin as the starter if they are not going to play Matt Schaub.

Derek Carr Bites!

**** Will Will and Mike B from Facebook **** 2-3 months from now, we will revisit this conversation and I'll be able to tell you both: I TOLD YOU SO .. CARR IS A BUMMMMMMMM!

Derek Carr is no better than his brother David Carr .. I'll list his stats as a Senior at Fresno State in another blog post.

Also, it's already known around the NFL, blitz Carr, and he's done. Teams had to game-plan around T. Pryor, if you blitzed him too many times, you would be looking at his backside.

  • Wil Wil I think time will tell its not that he is making rookie mistakes but our offensive line need to step up

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. Bakie .. the dude SUCKS .. he wasn't even that good his senior year in college, he had a good jr. season, but he wasn't impressive his sr year at Fresno State ...

    We have no shot at the playoffs, it makes no sense to win 4-5 games, we need to have the number one overall pick and draft Jameis Winston ... his minor issues off the field are nothing (and he was only accused of rape, not charged, as anyone can be accused, just ask Ben Rothlisb... twice accused) .. the dude throws DARTS, he's a competitor and a winner and probably won't choke under pressure..

  • Wil Wil Winston's not the answer.....This is on the coach and both lines

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. Carr sucks! PERIOD .. The coach needs to go to .. and I don't know why they didn't give Pryor a chance .. he's way better than the GARBAGE QBs on the Raider roster right now

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. Winston is the type of player that makes his teammates better .. Carr does not have that attribute .. Carr is not going to get in a receiver's face and tell him he's screwing up ... Jameis will

  • Mike Bodourian Every year, Raider fans cry for the "savior" #1 overall rookie sensation quarterback out of college. This is not the answer and Winston cannot succeed in Oakland. The O. line is horrible. You have no running game and the defense believes it's two hand touch. Start next week and dump the G.M. and head coach. That's the start in a new direction. Go Silver and Black...bring back some tradition!!

  • Gordon Rupe Oakland is my hometown, all I can do is hang my head low and wear the scarlet numbers of 0-4

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. so if we have the #1 overall pick, you're passing on Jameis, is that correct? and you're holding on to Carr?

  • Wil Wil So I'm going to rape and steal crab legs on top of make inappropriate comments in a assembly just to make you better. Yes we agree get rid of the coach but how many boiler makers have you had?

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. Winston's accuracy is impeccable, and if the Raiders have the opportunity to draft him and they pass on him, that's going to be a monumental mistake .. say what you will, we will have to just AGREE to DISAGREE ... CARR IS A BUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. and Will .. Jameis was ACCUSED of rape .. JUST LIKE Ben Roethlisberger

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. no one broaches the subject of Ben's accusations, but Winston's will follow him for the rest of his life .. you should be ashamed of yourself for playing into that, ESPECIALLY being a BLACK MAN yourself!

  • Mike Bodourian I'm a Bulldog alum and season ticket holder. I liked Carr in school, but not drinking the NFL cool-aid like most people in town. I say take the top pick and trade down for multiple picks. The Raiders have sooo many needs right now just to be contending. Look at the QB's who succeed that were taken in second or third rounds. Would you take Jay Cutler over Carr right now?? Just sayin'...

  • B.e. Shaw Sr. What does Jay Cutler have to do with the price of tea in China? I'm saying Carr is a BUST and if Jameis is on the board and the Raiders pass him up, they are FOOLS .. you're introducing red herrings by bringing up Jay Cutler .. Carr is not a starting QB in the NFL, not now, not EVER .. his brother was a better NFL QB than he is .... we could have kept Pryor and would have won at least 1 game this season .. defenses had to game plan for Pryor's speed and if he had to, he could throw the long ball - yes - he needed to work on his accuracy, but he's still better than the GARBAGE that we have now ..

  • Wil Wil OK Ben and Winston is two dif situations. Ben was already in the league. Winston has to get there its no black or white thing you have to be there first. That is just like Sam openly gay but do you think he is really the only one. Let's be facetious..
