I really think he needs one more year to be fair. I didn't read the article but I can see this as a point of concern. Right now he's just trying to get things his way in the office.

That's the first time I've ever heard of a guy named "Reggie" getting somebody's financial books in order.

the only thing i really really didn't like so far personnel wise was losing our pick bass to the bears. didn't like that, i thought he was showing some good things this preseason.

I agree. I think they did with hopes of signing him to the practice squad. But the Bears snagged him.

That really was dumb but I think it was more because we needed depth elsewhere but I think I would've let Jack Crawford go over Bass

Bass and Wilson are then two I hated to see go... Bass in my estimation looked the best upfront on th D-line this preseason...Wilson had nice upside, hope we get him on practice squad!!!

Reggie is doing fine. Given the financial mess, I think he has done pretty well. Give him 3-5 years to prove what he can do WHEN HE ACTUALLY HAS MONEY TO WORK WITH. If he doesn't work out after that, then the next GM will have a much better situation to come in and "make a difference". Reggie makes the tough decisions for 3 years and takes the blame.....It's a Win-Win for the Raiders organization.

As far as Reggie's draft picks--time will tell.

Tarver is the one who's A$$ is on the chopping block. Even with his hands tied, Reggie managed to assemble a pretty good looking Defense for this season. If our 'D' doesn't look better and manage to stop our opponents from putting up 30+ points, Tarver (and indirectly Dennis Allen) is to blame.

Our offense last season was averaging 21+ points per game under Carson Palmer. If our 'D' could hold opponents to 20 or fewer, we could have made the playoffs.....or at least won 7 or 8 games.

Yeah, I'm guessing that an extra 60 million in cap space next year will come in handy.
