The Raiders did two things this offseason that really hurt our team. To begin, they drafted Darius Heyward Bey with the seventh pick. This allowed Crabtree to fall to us and we picked him instead of Michael Oher. A couple months later Marvel Smith retires and we could really use Oher. Then the Raiders went ahead and overpaid Bey leading to our stalemate with Crabtree!
p.s. there is a chance family engagement will force me to miss the week one game. Where can I watch it that night or Monday I do not have a tivo or VCR. Thanks.
