Remaking of Raiders Secondary is Now Complete

May 22, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NBC Bay Area

Oakland's signing of Charles Woodson Tuesday is the latest and likely final move by general manager Reggie McKenzie to put together a new defensive backfield that should be far less leaky than the version cobbled together with castoffs and backups in 2012.

The key will be keeping woods on healthy and bringing Hayden up to speed quickly. I hope he has a strong football acumen.

Raiders need to keep Charles Woodson in some capacity, even when he is done playing....he could be the next, Dick Lebeau.....He's way smarter than the average DB.....

i agree with both of you. i was actually thinking of the other woodson when i heard charles woodson was going to sign here with oakland. although i kind of criticized the other woodson when he was given an oportunity to assist as a coach here. but who knows, i still believe he can do it, maybe. to me, he's probably better off just assisting while he's playing.

They showed on espn that there will be a tied record of 9 new starters on defense. Only Houston and Branch are the only starters to return.

I'm not sure. I'm just going by what they showed on espn. They showed all the starters but I don't remember the players they showed beside branch Houston and the rookie CB. I mostly remember the 9 new starter stat they showed

I can't find the espn thing they showed but I found this list. This one indeed has Burris as the starter. So it would be 8 new starters. I just noticed you guys have a pretty solid secondary with the rookie, Jenkins and porter along with branch.

Lol haha. First and foremost I'm a 49er till the death of me. But, I am also a HUGE NFL fan in general. I cant get enough football. I don't hate on any teams but the Seachickens lol. When the raiders get back in the playoff fold it makes Bay Area boom. I'm all about the California love.(Not so much with the chargers though lol) I've never been much into the raider 9er rivalry. Different division, different conference, rarely play in the regular season. And when they do play its the 3rd string guys playing lol.

well i gotta say, i hate the 49ers (LOL), so, i didn't even want them to win the superbowl.. no disrespect to you or your team, i'm just jealous (lol). but, there is a local rivalry there because they are neighbors. but i am like you, im a football fanatic. i don't get much involved with other teams but i love getting into the nfl. what i find cool here is you just want to talk football. you're not disrespecting. or else, you'd be hearing it from me (lol). naugh, we're cool. most of us are anyway! i speak for myself and a few here.

Lol I gotcha. See, I'm here in vacaville right outside the bay and there is about a 50/50 divide of raider and 9er fans so there is a lot of sh!t talking at the bars. It annoys the hell out me lol. I tell my 9ers guys worry about the Seahawks and the raiders guys to worry about the broncos instead of bickering with each other

years ago i used to jump to other forums but just to fight back from all the crap they used to talk here. now, i just stay here and prefer listening and talking to the RAIDER nation. thats a good reason why i don't jump into other forums, too much nonesense to argue about with other teams. a lot of crap talk back and forth. it gets old. BUT? i do defend my RAIDERS forum. we are in no position to talk crap right now about wins or winning, but i do defend a shhh talker! and of course, nobody wants to bother talking crap to us right now anyways. but i know the nfl misses us. "they need pipol like us, someone the can point the feenger at and say, luk, der gos da bad guy!"
we're be back! IN A FEW!
