Will Raiders win 7 games this year? Put the vote up

Postby Forbiddenraider » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:27 pm

Our roster is shit. Almost as bad as Cleveland. Reggie has fucked his way down the shitter again. 4 years into the Carr era & look at his team in year 4. I hope we get Jordy Nelson with Reggie’s GB connections but they know how dumb Reggie is already so maybe Nelson won’t come. We picked up Griff Whelan & Derek Carrier TE. Can Reggie just get us one good player? Just one? At least he won’t be drafting this year. The guy is 0 for 67 on draft picks.

I say 7-9 or 8-8 because Gruden is coach. If we are a decent finished product roster wise and the learning curve on offense and defense with the new playbook and coaches and we can close games than 10-6. But I'll stick with 7 or 8 wins right now.

I'm w Fred, Gruden may get us 1-2 more wins with basically the same shit we had last season. We haven't lost anything significant, and clearly there's no will in the organization to put in the work it takes to improve the roster through anything but the draft.

The way things look right now, we're going to get raped through the air. With Ellis and Vanderdoes on the inside we'll get gashed on the ground as well, unless we make a major move at MLB AND OLB.

Bowman's a pretty good player still, but not good enough to make up for the massive talent vacuum in all but one position in the front 7 (although Irvin is a serviceable OLB, possibly close to being good, but that's debatable).

I loved Mario pre-injury, but he has to make big strides to get back to form this season, if that's even possible.

The rest isn't even worth discussion. That's just the sad fact. We have one great dude and 2 servicable guys... then it's sub-par rotational pieces and practice squad-level trash. And this is what we have after 2 straight seasons with about $60M in cap space each.

GENIUS!

Chucky’s back. Unfortunately, so is Reggie. And Olson. HOW do these people continue to survive their own abject failure??

Lol... I get what you’re saying. I’d rather have low expectations and get surprised pleasantly. It’s a fixed league for gambling and propoganda any way. I just want to see them fix it in our favor. 7-9 8-8 is where I see us. A ceiling of 9-7 10-6 if Carr go s back to 2016 form and we get a decent draft.

Well the league is manipulated and its a business and they want the Vegas market to be successful so you know they want us on the up tick when we move to create a buzz when we move. Look at Vegas in the NHL. Breaking records in regards to wins, points, road wins etc for basically an expansion team. Betteman the commish is an asshole and has manipulated the sport in regards to branding, rules and the officiating. Owners collude to enhance markets and even newer markets as its good for overall business of the league. Refs manipulate games to favor teams and players as winning creates a buzz in any market especially an expansion market. Owners obviously control the commish, their GM's, coaches and their players to a degree. Business first, entertainment second and the integrity of the competition and sport dead last. These asshole billionaire owners are all about the dollar and making a huge profit at any costs. Each team in every sport is a separate Corporation and they function that way.

Good post Freddie. I just want them to fix the games for us now. The “Patriots” war against terror campaignhas run its course. The rebel team needs its turn.

I would assume we'll be on the up tick going into Vegas as say back to back 5-11 seasons for us going into Vegas would be a disaster for season tix, interest etc. NFL won't let that happen.

Couldn’t agree more. It’s also the face of the NFL for that season, and the optics would be horrible for the commerce of Vegas. Those hotel rooms for RAIDER fans in California must be filled as well. Can’t do that with a losing product. They’ll even make Carr look good lmfao.
