Explaining the Raiders GM via Raiders.net

Post by bizzyrg on Wed Sep 24, 2014 5:18 pm

I wanted to try to explain to our fans, coaches and players the thought process behind some of our more recent moves by the new GM. I really wish I could explain the moves of our GM before him but that’s impossible.


 


He built a 4-3 defense with good solid starting 4-3 Ends in Tuck and Woodley. But our backups belong in a 3-4. He decided to stiffen the growth of young players by bringing in aging talent. None of this is a logical approach to building a team. Maybe if your team is close to a SB contender, maybe. So in response some players had to be moved. It really was in their best interest as well as the Raiders. In return the team loaded up on draft picks to build a proper foundation. 13 total picks with 6 in the top 3 rounds and 10 in the top 4 rounds. No reason for this team not to draft 7-8 contributing players with this GMs first draft.



The most recent mock draft has them taking DE from Ohio State Jared Daniels and LT from Georgia Thrick Hatcher in the first round. Not sure I agree with the Daniels pick but Hatcher will be an immediate starter opposite of Penn.



 Expect to see growing pains, with this years M.A.S.H. unit. But the future is bright.

The media and fans want to know why give up on 2013 1st round pick DJ Hayden so fast and for such a small return. Many believe he had a bright future with the Raiders. 

Last question, we know the history of the coach and gm (Super Bowl winner/ GM of the ear) can we expect anything less in Madden 15? 

PS please don't relocate signed all Raiders fans

After a brief conversation,  I was informed it came down to a few factors. Depth chart,  money,  and injury concerns(76). The coach and GM talked and came to the Conclusion that Hayden wasn't part of the future. Cut ties now.

Why does the blackhole smell like a brown star?  Please fix this as it is a poor reflection on all other teams.

If you want any Fins just let me know... I might be able to send one or two your way.  You did that for me last year, right?  or did you...?
