    How did we utilize Delanie Walker? Brian Orakpo? Wesley Woodyard?

    Todd Downing also isn’t a rookie OC. He’s got experience calling plays and running an offense.

    I keep seeing people say he is the reason Del Rio got fired. I don't watch Raider football so I wouldn't have a clue.

    Well that whole team was a colossal failure. But LeFleur wasn’t successful here and he’s been doing just fine in GB. Cant just a guy off of 1 year. Especially in an organization like the Raiders.

    Dude, for every bust FA signing we've had, I can name 2+ good ones. That's the NFL.

    You can choose to be pessimistic, but Downing isn't a rookie OC and has a ton more experience than Arthur Smith had when he took over. He got Derrick Carr, Derrick FREAKING Carr, to 3 straight Pro Bowls, including in his lone season as OC.

    He also got a 5,000 yard and 40TD season out of Matt Stafford.

    Obviously the past doesn't guarantee future success, but I choose to be more optimistic.

    Yeah nothing is without risk here; Tanny is getting up there, King is in his prime and AJ didn't have a true buddy WR2 to pair with him - not even mentioning the fact the we have a very good TE2 as our only primary weapon at that position. They needed a playmaker , the window won't be open for very long - it made sense to pull the trigger.


    The risk is if he ends up like Moss did in the one year he was here then well we're in trouble - but the benefit (SB contending team) fully outweighs that IMO.
