I agree with you on the Bleacher Reports but Mike Mayock is one of the most well respected talent evaluators in the NFL. The fact that you consider him an "analyst douche" is very telling about your understanding of roster evaluation.Weird, it's one of those guys that picked the Chiefs to win the division.
Weird, it's one of those guys that picked the <span style="color: #0d3a80;">Chiefs to win the division.Anyone who covers the NFL holds Mike Mayock in high regard. The fact that you simpletons dont isnt a surprise. After all, I'm sure you three know more than people who actually run NFL teams for a living. What team do you guys work for again?
Facts say the Raiders went for it last year.Hahahah, really? They "went for it"? What tipped you off? Signing pro bowl players like Pat Lee and Omar Gaither? Or maybe it was the blockbuster addition of S.Spencer? Clearly we were gunning for a championship by keeping C.Carlisle!!! lol
Truth is its not in the best interest of a GM to speak the truth until after the fact. Because anything they state negatively or otherwise about a particular player provides waves that cant always be surfed.Agreed, which was exactly my point on why we shouldnt read too much into the "we're not rebuilding" comments. You also might be right about D-Mac but personally I dont think so. I think he stays and I think Reggie wants him to stay so that we can win more than 4 f'n games next year.
I SAY RETURN ALL BUT FOUR STARTER IS REBILD!Yeah, but how many of those starters are WORTH starting? How many of those guys do you think Reggie is happy to have starting? We brought back GREAT starters like C.Carlisle, K.Barnes, T.Kelly & R.McClain so does that mean we're happy they're starting for us? No, it means we didnt have the cash or draft picks to replace all the turds we would like to upgrade. Reggie has had one offseason yet you clowns act like this is the team that he WANTS to have. It's not and within the next few years you'll see a LOT of these guys slowy get weeded out.

Making up stuff is free and available to all but , in some cases, only available during work hours.lol, man, another good burn.
Well this rebuild just changed the offense yet again to focus on the two holdover stars from the last regime. Bottom line is they don't get excuses to use the players we have so wrong again. Rebuild retool or whatever they cant make tactical mistakes like that. We are just setting the groundwork for the futre this year. Should have been done during season one but they were careless in their analysis of how to exploint our talent. Only now have they considered that. Hence the new staff after only one season. Even in a 100% rebuild that is a failure that set things back a season.
We should be polishing last season's offense in year two. Instead we are installing a new one again.
However this has been a good start to our second season with the new hires IMO.
Bottom line is they don't get excuses to use the players we have so wrong again.I agree 100%
Rebuild retool or whatever they cant make tactical mistakes like that.No doubt...
Should have been done during season one but they were careless in their analysis of how to exploint our talent. Only now have they considered that.I would say that Dennis Allen was careless. Reggie was just doing what almost all GM's do...he let his coaches coach. Reggie hired Dennis Allen to run the product on the field and Dennis Allen thought Greg Knapp was a good OC. Obviously Dennis Allen was 100% wrong but in all honesty, he should have known better.
However this has been a good start to our second season with the new hires IMO.Agreed. There's not a single coaching hire that we've made this offseason that I didnt think was a solid hire. Instead of bringing in guys who sucked everywhere they went, we went and got guys with proven track records. That should help our still wet behind the ears HC in 2013.

Let me guess, PFF doesnt have M.Mayock as the highest rated analyst, right Leppy? lol
Tell me Darth, which well respected NFL evaluator, in any sense of the word, thinks you AREN'T and idiot.Well, considering the fact that they ALL agree with me that we're "rebuilding" I would probably say none, lol.
And perhaps you missed that PFF is subscribed to by all teams, and referred to by many, is now picking up references on ESPN as well. Apparently they those people think it's a valuable toolI would actually agree with them that it is a valuable tool. However, unlike you, they dont think that its the ONLY tool...
PS - Have you stopped beating your wife yet?lol, nice one Mr. Stern...

How many years does it take to turn this thing around if RM drafts a 1st round bust????
