Making Raiders Great Again continues!




 



The soon to be Las Vegas Raiders killed it in 2019 free agency, adding the top WR in the NFL Antonio Brown, remember Raiders also pulled the heist of the century by shipping off an overrated and soon to be over priced Amari Cooper to Dallas in exchange for a 1st round pick. Raiders got better linebackers, the best WR group together, an excellent safety and the top O Linemen in Free Agency.

Mike Mayock went into the draft knowing the needed a pass rusher, he got one right away with the 4th overall selection of 2019 draft with Clelin Ferrell. Yes, they reached for him but only because nobody bought the notion they would seriously take a QB in the 1st round but they had a need and didn't think he would be there at 24 and not to mention they had plans for 24 so they took the best 4-3 DE available early, who cares it's a human who can get after the QB.
Now that 24th pick, this was a pick that Jon Gruden wanted for months and he actually ended up getting. That is very rare in the draft unless you are picking either number one or two. Raiders loved the RB from Alabama. This guy has it all, he can catch out the backfield, he can block and he can run fast. Josh Jacobs was selected and now Raiders have their RB of the future.
At the 27th pick Raiders decided they needed to replace Karl Joseph eventually with a guy who is billed just like Karl Joseph was coming out but a much better player, plus Joseph is a McKenzie pick. Gruden does not want to win nor does he think he can MAKE RAIDERS GREAT AGAIN with McKenzie players so he got his own hard hitting safety who can also cover in Johnathan Abram.
There's not many McKenzie players left on the roster and that's all by design, hell Gruden and Mayock even fired McKenzie staff and his sleeping brother. Now of course in 2019 it's up to Derek Carr to succeed. He has the best WR group in the NFL, he has better protection, he has a top RB. It is solely on Derek Car in 2019 to be at his best so Mayock and Gruden can decide if he is in the future plans of Sin City. Regardless each and every day Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock continue to have one goal....
that is to MAKE RAIDERS GREAT AGAIN!

Raiders hire Gus Bradley as new D.C

                The 2 weeks of waiting is finally over, even know the decision been in the works since last week. Raiders have officially hired Gus Bradley to try to get the defense back on track. Bradley knows Jon Gruden as he worked with him in Tampa Bay. Now Gruden must hope Bradley can do better than his other buddy Paul Guenther who got fired with just three games left in the 2020 season.  Raiders could hire a few other coaches on defense, but that's something they can build on as they move forward. Some could stay or everyone just goes but I think there will be a few guys who stay on staff.  The reason Gus Bradley landed the job other than just being friends with the head coach and the guy who runs the entire organization (Jon Gruden )  is because he won the "Experienced" title over the other guy Gruden liked Kris Richard.  Kris Richard won't be joining staff as he only wants a shot at being the defensive coordinator somewhere. Which is a shame

Should The Raiders Use 2021 Draft Picks Or Trade Them

  General manager Mike Mayock, the former scouting and draft guru of NFL Network, has committed a ton of draft capital on defense in the last three years. However, his players selected: Johnathan Abram, Clelin Ferrell, Maxx Crosby, Damon Arnette, Isaiah Johnson, Tanner Muse, Quinton Bell, Trayvon Mullen, P.J. Hall, Arden Key, Nick Nelson, Azeem Victor, Maurice Hurst, and Amik Robertson are collectively not getting it done. Biggest weakness The Las Vegas Raiders have a ginormous weakness to strengthen. Defensively they were extremely inconsistent and in desperate need of coaching. Former defensive coordinator Paul Guenther was not the most relatable coach and his inability to communicate his scheme to the players led to his unceremonious departure in week 14. COVID-19 wreaked havoc on NFL veteran's normal preseason preparation, but it also gave the rookies of 2020 no chance to get acclimated to NFL football before the word go and the season opened up.  There wasn't a conventiona

RAIDERS SEARCH FOR NEW COACH ON DEFENSE

                                                                         Jon Gruden is on the hunt to fix his defense after the debacle that was the 2020 Las Vegas Raiders defense. Raiders fired Defensive Coordinator Paul Guenther in week 14 after another embarrassing performance on defense Jon Gruden looked for someone to blame and pointed at his best friend Paul Guenther. The Raiders only had 3 more games to play so the timing was odd but Gruden then tapped his other buddy Rod Marinelli   to move from Defensive line coach to Coordinator. Marinelli came into 2020 replacing Brenston Buckner, a players favorite and maybe the most talented coach on Raiders 2019 defense Buckner coached rookie Maxx Crosby who shined with 10 sacks, even veteran Benson Mayowa got 7 sacks. In 2019 Raiders defense was by no means great but they were far better at getting after the QB. Raiders in 2019 managed to get 32 sacks which was not good enough for head coach Jon Gruden . The plan to
