We don't need Donovin Darius. We got Schweigert, Asomugha, Washington and Huff. Huff didn't really show much last year, and Bing is challenging for a Safety position.

It is great that the raiders have added Donovin Darius to the deference. My main concern is the offense, can they add points to the score board. We already know that the deference can hold most teams less/under 21 point. The big question is can the offense score more then 21 points and win.

I agree, I think Darius is a good player, but I don't think we needed that. Who knows, Ryan is a smart cookie, he must have something up his sleeve.

Maybe he might try Huff at Corner ( he said thinking out loud) instead of Washington and maybe Bing will revert to Linebakcer after all, but you gotta think its a lack of complete faith in Schweigert, plus Darius is supposed to be great against the run and we all know thats key in the West. Stil, a proven run stuffing DT would have been preferable.

Steve you have a good point about Darius being good against the Run. It will probably be Schweigert and Huff on passing downs and Bing and Darius on running downs. Huff at corner might not be too bad. Huff really wasn't that impressive to me. I think if Bing moved to LB after all, along with Tom Howard and Kirk Morrison, We might have the fastest linebacking trio in the NFL. Sam Williams is too slow sometimes.

I think this is a good move for the Raiders. It brings more leadership and experience to the defense. He will probably be competing against Schweigert they invested too much money on Huff to let him sit on the bench. I think he will probably beat Schweigert for the starting job. I dont like how Schweigert sometimes takes bad angles when he is going to make the tackle or he goes for the big hit and he doesnt wrap them up. He improved last year, but I think Darious is still a way better tackler than Schweigert. Let the best man win. GO RAIDERS.

Schweigert was 1 of 3 Raiders to record over 100 tackles and the next guy behind him only had 74 so Schweigert had to be doing something right in his tackling technique.
