    And now we know that Jon meant when he said:

    Levi Damien @LeviDamien 2h
    Friday Jon Gruden suggested the #Raiderswould be looking for help at guard. “Gabe [Jackson] will stay on the right, and the door is wide open at left guard. We are going to continue to look at players that can come in and compete at that position."

    Vic with a funny about Richie’s tryout:

    Vic Tafur @VicTafur 2h
    Why not? Would set up (Denzelle) Good vs. Evil battle at left guard

    Even both would be a solid depth piece for whichever winds up losing out (if Cognito even signs). Seems like we will run more of a gap/power scheme than last year. With both Miller/Parker adding so much weight, and the skill set of our UDFA and Incognito both being of that scheme. Jackson and Hudson also better players in that style. Wonder how much of a leash ol Cable has?

    The big question is whether or not Jon will allow @Crow conjugal visits during training camp...

    I like how Gruden seemingly changed the blocking scheme to fit the RB he had eyes on all off season.

    Smart.

    Well, didn’t we go to more zone to accommodate Marshawn?

    Kinda flies in the face of our draft strategy rationale. Whatever though, just win.

    I disagree. I think it helps explain our draft strategy.

    The ZBS only seems to work when all of your linemen weigh less than 300#, and are allowed to hold and commit illegal chop blocks. Ala Denver.

    Putting aside Cognito's ability to play at a high level at 35 and after a year off, there's just reasons beyond football not to bring him in. He's an asshole (and that's not normally disqualifying), but the guy has serious mental issues and by all accounts needs real help. He should be dealing with those and not be in football.

    Never liked a strict ZBS. Always have issues in short yardage. Not many teams have been able to succeed in short yardage as well as in between the 20’s. The TD Denver team was able too.

    Maybe he could toughen Derek up?
