You sure it isn't you who wants TO? LOL. You have made the statement several times, and I have found nothing on any of the various Raiders sites I read, newspapers or blogs. I also have read nothing from either of the two media guys, Jerry McDonald and Steve Corkran, that are all over bay area news, especially Raiders news. Im not trying to be an a$$hole, just wondering where you're hearing this.
Also, Louis Murphy played a little(5-7 snaps) on Sunday. He had a chance on a ball over the middle, and never put his arms up, and ducked out of the way of an oncoming defender. Point blank, Murphy worse than Gator armed it. After that play, he wasn't seen again. Murphy broke his clavical last season, and was gator arming balls last season once he returned. He seems guinely afraid to go over the middle. I like Murphy, but that play on Sunday showed me that he lacks heart. Add onto that the whole arrest for Viagra, yes VIAGRA possession this offseason, I'm starting to think the guy who was our most productive WR the last two seasons, is at very least a 4th or 5th option at WR now.
My current WR rankings would be:
1) DHB. Wow! Did I just say that??? Guess I did.
2) Jacoby Ford. Although I like him in the slot and that is his role. Doesn't start. Starters are Moore and DHB.
3) Denarius Moore. Just another great pick by "Crazy" old man Al.
4) Chaz Schillens. This guy has all the talent in the world, slightly above average speed, runs great routes, and has THE BEST hands in our WR corps. Injury prone. I have watched EVERY, yes, EVERRRRYYYY Raiders game since I got my Directv in 1995, DHB drops em (not many this year though) Ford juggles many, and Moore isn't even targeted too often since DHB and Ford have returned. IMO, Chaz has awesome hands, and if he can get/stay fully healthy, dude can ball.
5 and 6 you can go either way with Hagan or Murphy.
Point being, we have 6 solid WR's, players salaries after week one (if already on a roster, which all 6 of ours are/were) are guaranteed for the season. Also, we had to restructure Palmer's deal. We have cap room, but not much. There is no chance IMHO, that TO gets anywhere near Oakland. Now a return to the 49ers who need WR's, that I would believe to make more sense.
Please don't think I was being a pr!ck. Not at all buddy.
