  • Kwame Harris to Oakland, Javon Walker to follow soon...

    From Adam Schefter per PFT, Harris to the Raiders for 3 years 16 millions, and Schefter also reports that Walker to Oakland can be completed as soon as tomorrow. Decent signings for Oakland and this def. fills 2 giant needs for them.

    Even if he does become a pro bowl guard, do you think people still will consider him a bust due to failed expectations as a stud can't miss LT? Do you think a pro bowl at LG would exonerate him the bust label? He was a interesting pick, and it's harder for you guys because you could have basically picked anyone you guys wanted that draft. If you guys didn't pick Gallery, what was the next popular pick among your fanbase? Would you have gone QB, WR in fitz, or what?
    Yes, I believe most will see him as a bust, even if he were to get up to Will Shields-like HOF production.

    That year was a year that was highly contested as to what the Raiders would/should do. A lot of guys like Roy Williams at that spot, some liked Larry Fitzgerald, others wanted Roethlisberger and still others were pining for Sean Taylor. I think I was among the Sean Taylor or Roy Williams camp at that point.

He still got called for penalties, but he was a huge reason for the Raiders' success in the run game. I would love to see him become the LT the Raiders thought he could be, but even with cutting Barry Sims, the Raiders decided to keep him at LG. Otherwise that would just be one more switch that Gallery would have to make.

    All in all, I'm happy with him at guard and I think he could become a Pro Bowl caliber player there although I don't know if anyone would ever vote for him due to the failed expectations.

    Gallery is among the most penalized players in the league, season after season.

    ESPN's Mike Sando wrote a good article about it this past November.

    What's the concensus among Raiders fans? Do they consider him a bust or still work in progress or what? I am going with the assumption that you're a raider fan, so correct me if I am wrong.

    Haha! Gallery has had a couple sacks by himself, tripping his own QBs... If he's getting those sacks without even trying, imagine what he could do actually trying to get to the QB.

    Yeah, with the release of Barry Sims, people were asking Kiffin if Gallery was going to play LT. Kiffin flatout said that Gallery is staying at LG and that was the end of the discussion.

    I'm a little torn--a part of me wants to see Gallery become a Pro Bowl LT, but the other (more rational) side of me sees the need to keep Gallery at LG so that he can finally stay in the same spot 3 years in a row.

    My only response to that is that Harris is not guaranteed a starting spot. I hope...

    Maybe, just maybe, Tom Cable can bring him back from the dead in the same way he has begun to rejuvenate Gallery's career.

    If he got another WR in the later rounds I'd be happy.
