They've got a head coach who doesn't like to run.I don't agree with this part. Reid has had a long history of successful running backs. McCoy, Westbrook, Deuce Staley, even.
If their future relies on this kid. We've only got Denver to worry about.Agree. San Fransisco fleeced KC in this deal. And to piggy back off that, I never got the Andy Reid love fest. I always thought he was pretty underwhelming. Struck me as a guy who thought he and his system were smarter than anyone else in the room. He'd set up a bunch of plays that manufacture yards/pad stats and point to that as "success". He also struck me as one of those guys who thought his "great system" meant he didn't need good players to play in it. That he could avoid plugging talented people in, or swap out one talented guy for some 7th round nobody and still be successful. Not quite. At best, he's an 8 or 9 win coach for a year or so, before all their talent gets run off.
We've only got Denver to worry about.LOL, but I understand what you are saying. However, the Raiders need to worry about everyone and not overlook anyone. Based on the team today, do you think we are better than KC or SD or anybody else? We need to focus on ourselves because our problems are with our team, not Denver, or KC, or SD, or another AFC team or an NFC team for that matter.
