All I have to say is McFadden better stay healthy! I hate to see Bush go, but we have to trust Reggie and his ability to guide the Raiders in the right direction.(To be a winning top team again). Let's get the Silver and Black back the respect they once commanded for so many years.

Now that I know what it has cost to franchise Branch, I hate this move...It would've only cost 1.5 million more to franchise Bush.

I know Branch has his upside besides being a good safety and ability to return kicks, but when it comes to returning kicks Ford is the man!!!!!!!!!

WTF are you doing over here..!?!?!

I agree with what you've said, but here's a Raider history lesson for you...While we have a great WR/KR in Jacoby Ford, in the late 90s we had a kicker named Cole Ford and he SUCKED!!!!

I think this is the right move. Bush wants to be a starter....and he SHOULD be.....and he will be.

Tyvon is probably our best DB and we need to keep him around. I also think it will be easier and cheaper to replace Bush. I hate to see him go but that's too much $$ for a #2 RB who comes in to rest the #1.
