Raiders to buy out McKenzie's contract?

Postby DeadRinger » Tue Apr 03, 2018 11:59 am

This may be total speculation of bullshit, but I read a post from a PFT reader saying that "reports are" that we're trying to get rid of Reggie. Apparently Gruden thinks he's just getting in the way.

We shall see... And hope...

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

I think after this season which will probably be a 7 or 8 win season Reggie will be gone. Gruden in the owners/coaches meeting in Florida which his interview is on raiders.com didn't seem to optimistic about his roster as of right now. Gruden said quite a few high round picks need to step up and he wants Bowman resigned. Gruden seemed happy with maybe 3 or 4 of the 17 free agents we brought in. The rest might not even make the roster for the most part. He basically indirectly said the reason for all these FA bodies in camp is because the piss poor drafting for a long time now that has left the roster like swiss cheese. He isn't happy with the depth and talent in almost every position.

That Gruden interview on raiders.com is about an hour and fifteen minutes and is well worth the watch. Pretty fuckin thorough interview.

Yeah Fred, but I also heard him hand Reggie a big-ass excuse, saying (paraphrasing except for the "poor Reggie" part) "poor Reggie has had to try to get players to fit 4 or 5 different systems during his time here, and that's just not how you succeed."

But I'm with him, of course, except I'm not really happy about any of the signings so far. I think of all of them, the Whitehair signing may be the most successful of the bunch but that's not saying much IMO. Tahir and Jordy are the only ones I can see paying real dividends. The rest are backups that will be forced into starting roles for us, and we've seen WAY plenty enough of that particular brand of Mckenzie bullshit to know how this ends.

People are slamming Jordy for last year's performance, but no receiver in the league could put up good numbers when Hundley is the QB. I completely disregard last season's stats.

Well Gruden doesn't want to outright throw Reggie under the bus. Everyone knows how piss poor Reggie's drafts have gone.

Not everyone. Any time I slam Reggie in a post on PFT, I get about 75% down votes. Still. After 6 seasons and a dog shit W/L during that time. That’s the kind of track record that gets people fired with a swiftness in the real world.

Mark isn't Al and Reggie's black. Rooney rule gives blacks the benefit of the doubt like what Reggie's getting. Its fucked up but it is what it is. Gruden knows how fucked up Reggie's drafts are.
