    Can you get a more perfect name for a Vegas team than Raiders? Seriously. "Golden Knights" was lame, especially when you have so many casino, gaming etc references

    It's a great move, collectively the team will save over a billion dollars a year in state income taxes alone.

    Derek Carr in a nuts ... good arm talent and great ball placement, with a weird reluctance to make good use of those traits

    The talent:








    Avoiding using that talent:






    that's going to be the barometer this year. if he doesn't dial up the aggressiveness, that's when it might be time to explore options in the draft. next year is a good QB class, and not just with Lawrence, but also Fields and Lance

    pretty much what I have except I have them splitting KC and handing KC one of their only 3 losses of the season. I have them winning 10 and then resting their starters week 17 @ denver because they're already locked into a certain spot.

    I also have the afc east winner and runner up each at 8-8. It's going to be an atrocious division considering they have to face the NFC Best and the two-pronged AFC West.


    Remember though, 9-7 teams are much more likely to get a playoff birth now that the playoffs are expanded from 12 to 14 teams.

    Would love to see the Raiders brand die. I doubt it'll ever happen. They have a strong foothold in the lowlife market. Same reason the White Sox not gonna stop selling their traditional hats.
