Hey 90210 what's up DHB and Huff getting cut by the Raiders. Can they draft some replacements and be EXPLOSIVE again????
DHB on this board months ago I told everyone that he would be cut.(go look it up) If you look at how much they were going to pay him there was no way he was going to be kept. ( everyone knew that) Especially when they had his replacement on the roster already(Rod streater) With jacoby Ford back this year they had to open up a spot for Streater. Also want to get Juron Criner more time. ( different type of WR to the other wr on the roster)
M Huff being cut, that surprise me some what as yes he was making a lot of money next year and beyond, but this guy has been the ultimate team player. Playing out of position the last two years at CB due rash of injuries Raiders had at CB. R Mckenzie just doesn't want to keep any players with out of whack contracts on the roster.(wants to bite the bullet now) Raiders right now are looking at 90 million dollar cap space for 2014. (what does that tell you)
Reggie MCkenzie got the Raiders GM job because of recommendation oF Ron Wolf, J madden , and Hertzog who said he great talent evaluator.
Were going to find out real soon if that is the case as this is really his first draft.

Former WR, so you know he has solid hands, and as been very productive in a reserve/ST teams role during his first four years in the league. He's ideal for the WCO and I'm excited to see him play. Having him split carries with Powell and or McKnight and or a rookie RB will keep him fresh as well.
Only two worries with Mike Goodson Ball security as he has to do a better job holding on to football. (a lot of fumbles for small amount of carries he had in career) and pass protection. You can't protect your QB than your not going to be out there.
M Goodson improves in both those areas and then jets got someone that very good fit for their offense(should put up big numbers) If he doesn't he again will have very little carries.
No I'm just one of those fans who laughs at the majority of our blind and misguided fan base. Steven Jackson just got a 3yr 12 mill dollar deal which is pretty cap friendly. Who would you rather have Jackson or Goodson? No saying thAt this kids a bad signing he might thrive and be great, but when I see post saying we found our feature back or Reggie bush type or Goodson>McFadden I got to laugh at comments like that for a guy who had 35 carries last year
I would rather sign the young player with upside as opposed to the old vet with a lot of miles who will be shot by the time the team becomes competitive again. And when you are looking at NFL contracts its not the dollar amount or years that matter, its the guaranteed money.
Pick Analysis: Goodson is a big back with really impressive quickness and speed. He hasn't been a full-time starter in college, but he has great explosion and change of direction. He may develop into a multi-threat player in the NFL who can play slot receiver, catch screens, run the ball and return kicks.
