praise? i hate the word "praise" for this mother f'r reggie mckenzie specially after what he did to this whole organization! but i can agree that he did a decent job on the draft. didn't go the way i expected but im not upset about it. every gm is going to have good picks and bad picks. what's important is to be hopeful that most of the picks you get turn out to be better than what you thought. you know, i don't care for this "should we have gone after barkley" kind of talk. it's done and over with. we got who we got and hope for the best. sometimes it works the opposite way that when you think you got a low pick, that low pick turns out to be one of the best so, as far as players go, their all going to work hard and the gm will either get credit or discreditededteded. teded deded!

We'll just have to wait and see how these draft picks pan out. My answer is NO we shouldn't have gone after Barkley because QB was not the most pressing need.

WHAT TURNAROUND? well, he did turn it around, and went backwards if that's what you mean? staying away from those high priced bums are the ones that brought your team to their last winning record to at least 8-8 yada yada! he even said that if he could afford to get some of those higher priced players he would! maybe you should talking about what he's going to do, not what he's done cause it just makes more sense. listen, "i think mckenzie "is going to do a good job in the future" maybe even this year?.
praise!(LOL). sounds like the entire media everywhere and even RAIDER media see's that there is some concern for what has gone on with the RAIDERS org since mckenzie took over. and here i thought it was only me. but, it is nice to be hopeful and optimistic like you. i know i am. but look at reality? 8-8 to 4-12 yada yada right? really? and he had to fired his media man for talking crap. and, he had to fire the man he hired g knapp. ask yourself why he hired him in the first place? now, ask yourself why he hired dennis allen? now "rummored" to be on the hot seat! and ask yourself where some of those players he has hired and fired gone after going 4-12? now, i know you hated carson palmer, but if you don't or didn't see or understand what carson palmer has done and did to help this org.? i gotta tell ya,,,. now we are stuck with four hopeful (qb's) to start our season with unproven (wr's) and a shhh-load of rookies. now, you like me, i hope they turn out well and this game turns around with the help of some of those veterans he brought in cause without those veterans they won't even let this team compete or even show up for the 2013 season!(lol). he eventually has to put a team together and we are still games away from getting back to competing. maybe this team can do good this season and surprize me and those who talk against mckenzie. i will eat my words! but until then? just keep going with being optimistic, "like me". glad you're going to all the games instead of me. i'll absorb from my computer and television like a true fan ;)
PRAISE?(LOL)

I will praise Mckenzie for multiplying the draft picks the way he did since we had very few. As far as the players he drafted, I'm trying to wait until after the season starts before I judge them. It's encouraging to find articles saying positive things about them, but I will call this draft class boom or bust based on how many become starters and how many make a good difference on our football team

First off,I said he was TURNING this team around. Give the man a chance. And I hate to burst your bubble,but 8-8 ain't nothing to brag on. Tom Cable had that record as well. I see his vision,and im very optimistic. Not every player on that team was a BUM,but they were def over paid.except for wheeler. Im gonna love telling you I TOLD YOU SO.

Tom Cable got them to that point thanks to continuity because he was the first head coach since Gruden that got a third year as head coach of the Raiders.

8-8 sure isn't "nothing to brag about", but going backwards to 4-12 is sure "less" to brag about, i'd hate to burst your bubble. im glad you give cable credit for his 8-8 record cause i have bragged about that as well. i called it "the last winning record twice at 8-8". thank you for clearing that up that not every player was a bum, overpaid for some? yes. i like wheeler as well, but wheeler is not here because he was "underpaid". just as an opinion, my opinion is, mckenzie should've probably paid wheeler his due money and not have to have hired 10 other linebackers. but, it is what it is. not upset about it. just another "done deal" where, in other words, damage is done! im sure mckenzie knows what he's doing. i'm going to love you telling me "i told you so"! even i want to hear it from you or anyone on the RAIDER nation. but till that happens, "it's i'm telling you"! this season, we do not reach a "not so great 8-8" just predicting based on the way this team is set. and? i gotta say, im hopeful and optimistic. i just can't go on saying what many say just to jump on a band wagon and say we are going to be great this year. where you may love mckenzie, i understand. nothing wrong with it. i don't care for the job he did last season and since he joined the RAIDERS. and i think today he is doing okay. so, i am giving him a chance. this team doesn't look bad, i just feel they're just not ready this season for a lot of wins or at least 8-8, nothing wrong with saying that. what do you want me to say? that he's doing a great job?(lol). no, i'll leave that up to you. i hope all bad media reports about mckenis is wrong as well. so, i hope i'm wrong! cause, i've been wrong before you know?(lol).

Wheeler not here because RM didn't give him what he was worth.Thats the definition of being underpaid. I never said the Raiders were going to have a WINNING season,im simply being optimistic.Teams can be 2/14 one year,and 11/5 the next(COLTS).So its really not a huge surprise. Im not on a bandwagon,never really knew there was one. Just supporting RM for the smart drafting,and moves he's made so far. Its looking good. I cant say for sure,neither can you. Just gotta wait an see. Got my season tix,my DMC jersey,and a big bag of lettuce!! Its gonna be exciting RM OG!!
