I know this has already been posted, but it's orobprob best to start a thread to house the conversation about this big article. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25252751/mark-davis-oakland-raiders-1-8-start-buck-stops-me 1) Mark and Reggie tried to make Mack highest paid defensive player last year at the same time they got Carr's contract done. This was when Mack went radio silent. 2) Mark has no love lost for Mack after his holdout. 3) Mark realizes the dearth of talent on this roster. The "construction" phase was entirely unsuccessful. Edit: 4) There is definitely something that happened in the locker room last year after Washington. And Mark doesn't even know all the details but he knows the locker room split.
