    Heard him on Sirius today. Man I gotta say that dude gets me pumped up! Was takking up that udfa FB we got, said Gruden covered his head in stickers because he kept knocking fools. Such a refreshing change from Mumbles.

    Kevin Smith might be good on ST. But I’d love an old-fashion road grader at FB.

    I think he’s more of that than you think the way Mayock was talking him up

    Ingold had 21 TDs in college as well. It'll be an interesting camp battle and Ingold is obviously cheaper. If he shows up on ST in camp/preseason the job is probably his.

    Keep upgrading the roster. If Lee Smith got axed to save $1.88M (with a $733K cap hit), don’t see why we would not ding Kevin Smith to save $1.5M (with no cap hit).

    It's pretty easy to be more articulate than Blockhead.

    Gruden and Mayock were good TV guys.
    They are skilled at being able to look and sound good.

    TV evangelist shysters dupe mOrons into buying them Learjets and mansions.
    Because they sound good.


    The jury is out on M. Mayock.

    I like Gruden and Mayock. I think they will be successful in returning this franchise to its winning ways of the past.

    But intentions don't matter. Only Results matter.

    Let's see what the Raiders do in 2019 and beyond. Got to give Mayock at least 3 seasons to evaluate his performances.

    I like all that Mayock brings to the table, but his most redeeming quality is keeping Gruden in check and balances. Let Gruden coach and being a good play caller, and keeping him away from trade values, and workout warriors.

    Yep. Winning only matters, and not “winning” the off season. But it’s been a good off season. Gruden now has more to work with

    While I wish the Raiders targeted players less in the draft, and took BPA more, WTF do I know? Mayock and Gruden had a plan this offseason and executed it. For that I give them a resounding A.
