    if you use the #2 overall pick on an o-lineman, you expect him to be among the elite tackles in the game. this is his 3rd year and he got thrown around like a rag doll...meanwhile, aaron brooks is their qb when the coulda had rivers or big ben...and they're desperate for a WR and they coulda had fitz or roy williams. sean taylor would help that D and be a perfect fit for the raiders.

    The Raiders keep passing on franchise Quarterbacks. :roll:
    I know we need to ******* one in this draft maybe Troy smith the man can do it pass and run could turn the franchise around. i also wouldn't mind Brady Quinn either.

    Don't get me wrong I thought it was a great pick at the time I understand the pick for sure he was just a beast in college there was talk of him going #1 at times SD was really high on. I thought he would start from day one at LT he was that good kinda hard to live up to that kinda hype he could still turn it around I just don't think he will ever be the next Roaf or Pace kinda player.

    its so so easy to look back and talk about who they should of had now isnt it...do you know how many teams we could of done that with, what if the lions didnt draft mike williams and charles rogers, they could of been a playoff team....

    oakland did what anyone would of done in that position, when you see a great LT, thats amazing coming out, you take him, it can never be overlooked to protect your qb's backside for his career...


    its hard for me to go all the way to bust, he is kinda like a WR who came out WR but has played FS, SS, slot and outside WR...i wanna see him settle down for a year at LT, but he does look tired and slow

    I thought for sure they would take Fitz I'am glad they passed.

    The Raiders could be without Robert Gallery for three weeks after the starting left tackle was diagnosed with a pulled calf muscle, Oakland head coach Art Shell said Thursday.
    Not good.

    What's really shocking about Gallery is how much his technique has gone to **** since he was drafted. I don't know if people remember him as Iowa well, but this kid was amazingly sound technically when he got drafted.

    Truth be told, I'm stumped by the whole thing. I'm gonna give Gallery until week 10 to show some improvement (the injury complicates things), then I'm gonna write him off.

    Robert Gallery (calf) will be out at least two-to-three weeks.

    Oakland's left tackle wasn't successful in halting San Diego's pass rush in Week 1 and replacement Chad Slaughter isn't likely to fare much better versus the Ravens this Sunday. It's terrible news for all Raiders skill players and a team that was embarrassed late Monday night. Sep. 14 - 8:55 pm et

    It wasn't that he couldn't beat him out,they moved Gallery instantly,thinking he could play there a yr or 2 so that he could transition,but obviously it didn't work.He isn't a bust, but I feel if he doesn't start getting some pankcakes and opening up some holes for the original LJ ,he is gonzo.

    When you are drafted 2nd overall, you are expected to be an elite NFL Left Tackle. He doesn't have the arm length or athleticism to be such. At best he can be a solid RT.

    Yeah I would say he's a bust...he should be solid at the very least...and I can't say that I believe that he's solid.

    He got absolutely torched by Merriman on 1 of his sacks...he pushed him back a yard and then just blew by him.
