    Yeah, Johnson's a stud.....but historically speaking, I can't think of a single instance in which a great WR sparked a bad team's turnaround.
    You can argue whether he really sparked it or not, but after going 1-15 Keyshawn Johnson's rookie year, the Jets didn't lose more than 8 games in a season through 2000, after which Johnson left.

      Rattay would be a real solid fit. Here's a guy who never really got a fair opportunity last year for non-football reasons. He can operate that scheme/system, and would provide a bridge of 1-2 years to develop someone, whoever that might be. Although ... I still say this. I don't think a veteran QB tilts things as much as people make it out to be. It might be a slight nudge, but in the end, I think the Raiders will make the choice based on what they think is the right move, not based on "need", persay.

        This would be a good move for the Raiders. Rattay really isn't that bad...granted, he's not that good either...but he allows them to draft CJ and take Trent Edwards or Drew Stanton at the top of the second. That would be a pretty awesome draft for them.

          Rattay is a great fit for the Raiders in their new WCO look. Signing Rattay certainly doesn't mean they won't draft a QB, but it does give them negotiating leverage and gives them options with #1 overall.

              Speaking of the Bucs, what are the odds they draft a QB? I think Gruden has developed a new fetish with QB's.

                The main reason why Grads beat out Rattay on the depth chart is that Rattay is a "gamer", and is a lot better in game time than he is in practice. Gruden was frustrated with him during camp and "doghoused" him to the bottom of the depth chart. Rattay clearly outperformed Grads in game time, however, and made the offense much more productive.

                  Tim Rattay is a joke.

                    Rattay not bad but he only a one year qb for any team. This might mean they are going to take Edwards or Staton and grom them for a year or 2 then start them.

                      i think that its just a smoke screen so they can trade down to get Quinn if they aren't sold on Russell.

                        They should just got David Carr when he was avaliable, I now think they should pick up Stanton in the third. For now I think they should get Rattay I guess and Walter is obviously not the answer his numbers explain everything.

                          If they draft Johnson its because they will trade Moss to the Packers.

                          Brett Favre said he is 99% surtain that Moss will be traded to the Packers. I think that leaves a big hint that Moss will be gone and they will draft Johnson.

                          But its a toss-up. Rattay really gives no hints to what they plan on doing.
