    We could have got Wade a couple years ago. Don't think his defensive philosophy meshes with JDR's .

    At this point, I'm not sure what JDR's defensive philosophy is, other than suck early and lean on Khalil Mack late.

    Pretty much. If you cant get pressure from your front four, stay the course. Ostweiler had all day to throw Saturday except on those off times they actually blitzed.

    I want an attacking, aggressive, swarming defense

    The Raiders need defensive tackles who can contribute a strong pass rush inside. Currently, we have nothing but run stoppers. Mack and Irvin can't do it all from the wings. We need that inside push. JDR is right about that much.

    Well they drafted a huge project who was a colossal fail and MEJ cannot be counted on to stay healthy. They were remiss in not addressing this area

    Jihad Ward was the project. And he's definitely still a project.

    Yes, he is. He only ended up starting as much as he did due to injuries, so I wouldn't hang the "bust" tag on him just yet. Really want to see how he looks in Year 2. The same for Shilique Calhoun.

    Calhoun, a one trick pony. Outplayed by an UDFA

    Norton - "Jack, can you smell what I am cooking?"
    Jack - "Probably leftovers from last week"

    @NickHjeltness I mean Tice seems like the one who is most at risk of being poached.
