JA98


Recommended Posts

Don't think it's gonna happen now.

I still feel like TD wanted a DE in the 1st round but when Philly jumped up for Graham @ 13, the DEs jumped off the board before our pick. After the guys we were interested in were gone I think we decided to go with Spoon and the DEs we have. I don't think he'll be starting, but I do think he makes the roster now.

I think we still would have gone with Weatherspoon TBH. We just don't need to groom a guy who may not pan out on the left, however, who is to say what a guy will or won't do without at least one season of pro ball under his belt.

Back on the subject, I never liked JA98 as our 8th overall that year. I mostly wanted a couple of guys who wen before us, would have been okay with Okoye as value of age and loooong learning curve, would have loved Willis, and hoped for a RB (supposedly we were supposed to go into a Power Run game).

Buster will not be cut, Buster will blossom this year. If he's a Falcon he deserves our support and best wishes. Really tired of threads bashing our players.

I appreciate your loyalty, I really do, but if you are a Raiders fan, do you support and send best wishes to Jamarcus Russell? Not if you are smart. Its ok to want to get rid of a player, doesnt make you less of a fan. The chances of Anderson blossoming this year are pretty slim. I hope I am wrong, obviously. We would all love to see him get about 11 sacks this year and be the dominant DE we thought we were drafting. Dont see it happening though.

38? Thats it? I think he can get 50 this year.

My bad, he only needs 37.5 . Jamaal's contract calls for his yearly salary to go up by $5 million per year if he has 40 sacks in his first 4 seasons , and he already has 2.5 .

So he only needs to increase his production by about 5000% this year and he is all over it.

they shouldve made it 40 career sacks, maybe that'll push him.

Well the truth is, he had the same incentive for 3 years (30 sacks). Unfortunately, he just missed the 28 sacks he needed last year so he didn't get his $5 million bonus for this year.
