Not to mention that NE will probably trade down to get even more picks. Brilliant!

think about it i really don't think the Raiders can afford to pay another top 5 pick. McFadden, Russell, and DHB has to be killing there cap. Add in franchising Nnamdi and that's dam near a wrap cap wise.

I wish we would have at least made some attempt to get a pass rusher whether we tried to sign Ellis or even make a trade offer to NE. We went for the quick fix with Bruce, why not try with Seymour or Ellis? I guess were saving our FA money for next yr when Peppers, Wilfork, Merriman etc are available..
The Raiders could be on to something. With the best CB in the league shutting down one side of the field, and extreme peressure on the QB. They can now shift the coverage to the other side of the field. Mean while TE's and RB's will have to stay in to block because of the pressure!
They could have a pretty solid deffense!
But isn't Oakland where good players go to die? Were we not all just saying; WOW, they now have D. Hall and N.A at CB with Wilson & the kid from Texas at safety?
Or WOW they now have Sapp & Moss?
Just another funeral for the carreer of a great player in oakland.
