  • Getting Hall gives us one of the best pass defences in the league. Aso,Hall, Wilson and Huff in the secondary plus one of the best covering LB's in Thomas Howard should give us a top 5 defencive team against the pass. In the draft we need to draft atleast 3 defensive linemen to go along with mayb another outside lb and Oline. If we can trade Washington and Route for picks that would be great. Getting rid of Jordan should be our number 1 thing to do. Also resigning Gallery would save us a ton of cap space.

    Overall I think Oakland with have a slight chance at the playoffs. It mostly depends on Russell. After seeing how he did on the last game last year the future seems bright. If we can get 15-20 tds from him we should be good. I think Oakland goes 6-10 to 8-8 this season.

      Wilson, Kelly, Walker, and Fargas make a combined 2.8 million in base salary in 2008. Apparently Hall only makes 2 million.

        Which just means if the salary cap is saved then you guys are royally screwed before long.

          Get 3 defensive linemen and an offensive lineman and another linebacker? With what draft picks?

            Not really. As I've said in this thread, Walker won't earn half the money in his contract (and probably won't be around for more than three years). Kelly doesn't really ever end up earning that much, but Oakland have a chance to cut him loose before he earns the majority of it if he doesn't end up being the kind of undertackle they hope he will be. Wilson probably won't make it to the end of his contract either. The Kwame Harris deal is probably in reality a one year signing.

            Oakland is taking a risk with the future of the salary cap, but even if the cap continues to expand at it's current rate (remember when it was like 67 million in 2000?), and they cut the dead weight of player so all they are on the hook for is the guaranteed cash, they should be fine.

              We get it, you're a Chiefs fan and you hate the Raiders.

                I think you have down syndrome or you cant read well.

                also i didnt mention we might trade down since we probably cant pay the 4th overall pick

                    And you really think 6th and 7th round picks are going to make an impact? Most likely not. The only 2 picks you can really count on are the 1st and 4th round picks.

                      No, I can read very well very well thank you very much. I'm not from Oakland, hence I actually have an education.
