            Can you really get excited about this move?

            We saw what Edgerrin James did without an offensive line last year, we should expect the same from Dominic Rhodes in Oakland. Don't really see this as much of an upgrade, there is a bigger problem in Oakland than the level of talent at runningback.

              So they should try to acquire no talent? They needed a compliment to Jordan. They have it. Does it solve all their problems? No.

              One of Edge's biggest problems, IMO, was that after he got paid he stopped giving a ****. He was always a burnout, but worked hard in Indy so that he could get that big signing bonus that he had been holding out for. Obviously being in the Colts system helps, but I don't think one could argue that Edge in his prime couldn't have done well anywhere.


              Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                all the Raider fans hoping for AD....does this satisfy the RB position ?
                A part time guy in Indy (a very underated line...never got the pub for Edge)
                or is this signing merely a reason now to cut Jordan and have Rhodes / Fargas be "the guys" ....this is going to get interesting.

                  I am upset the Giants did not go through with that deal.

                  Good sign for the Raiders.

                    Jordan recently restructured his contract, so right now it looks like he and Rhodes will be splitting carries, with Fargas coming in sparringly.

                      I feel like we are overpaying for him a little bit, but its only a 2 year contract, so it wont come back to bite us really. He comes in and helps our offense and running game for a couple years and then we send him on his way. Hopefully we have new RB who can be a star by then (McFadden maybe?) Our backfield needed help and Rhodes is the kind of back we needed so I think it is a solid signing that can help this team in the short term and not hurt is in the long term. Good to see some activity....now if we can just get a TE!!! With all the TEs on the market im really dissapointed we didnt get one. Im hoping for Pollard now, not that he is all that great but he'd be a major upgrade over that bum Courtney Anderson.

                        Nice move by the Raiders. One of the best fits I've seen so far this year. ...along with ATL's Joe Horn signing.

                            Well now that the Raiders brought in Rhodes to clarify the running game, now they just need a QB, massive offensive line help, figure out their WR situation, find out how well a head coach with no head coaching experience works out in the locker room, ahhh just another offseason in Raiderland.
