    Goff's a dead man. The O-line in Detroit is much worse and will probably get torn down and take numerous steps back..no dominant running game to lean on so likely very little playaction success, WR position about to take a hit with their best likely on the way out, etc.

    It's OK though. That's why he's there. They'll draft a young QB and let Goff take all the sacks and hits while they rebuild on the cheap. Lol Crash dummy status. A big money crash dummy though. So long as he keeps his eyes on the $$$ he'll be fine. Best advice he can hope for is " duck ". Gotta live and spend that $$$

    Hard to blame the Rams a ton. They want this 2nd tour in LA to work out and are going balls to wall. If they don't, think we all know LA will snooze right through football season if the team's nothin special or there's no exciting offseason to build anticipation. Stafford's really the best they could hope for under the circumstances w/Goff basically being a cancer

    Another thing they have going for them is that if they just keep it close, the league will cover their eyes and help out if they can....Saints still want their pass interference. League said, " fuck dem Saints..we need LA to work this time. " Lol Na, but you make a great point about the Rams D..they've already lost their highly touted defensive coordinator to the Chargers. Chargers look like they have something brewing with young Herbert @ QB and could soon build a little following in the city. Chargers certainly have the better uniforms....probably one of the top 5 uniforms in the league even after remodeling them a little

    Chargers are and will never be more than an afterthought in LA. Should have never moved.

    If only LA were actually that tough when it comes to NFL football. RAIDERS left Oakland ( should have never moved) and took that shit over in LA

    But I hope the Chargers don't make their mark in LA, obviously. If they do, it'll likely mean that they've won a Super Bowl behind Herbert and Staley and that's no good

    Seeing so many people question giving up a lot for Watson blows my mind

    Watson is a unicorn. An elite QB at the age of 25 is never available. A guy like Watson is always locked up and maybe switches teams way late in his career like Favre, Peyton, or Brady. You give up whatever the fuck it takes because you're getting an elite QB for 10+ years...this is easy.

    Unfortunately, the Raiders do not have what it takes to beat out other packages.

    McVay held Goff's hand throughout his entire Rams tenure. Goff is not the brightest QB and has a lot of issues reading defenses/adjusting on the fly. I think he's going to be horrible in Detroit.

    Cowherd is getting slayed by Raider Nation on twitter today for proposing the RAIDERS trade Darren Waller for Watson. And I have to say that I wouldn't be happy if that happened. Talk about a unicorn..Waller is a unicorn. No thanks.

    They can be creative and figure something else out....can trade Carr for a 1st or a couple 2nds and flip those over to Houston. And ditto for a couple others like Gabe Jackson and Mariota, trade and flip. They could also put Henry Ruggs or John Abram in the trade and that would represent 1st round talent. Can do all that an offer their own picks too. Whatever they do, they better not trade Darren fuckin Waller

    Goff's made some of the worst throws I've ever seen. As has this guy....

    He's done, irrelevant, and he'll be out of the league in 3-4 years tops.

    Gruden & Maycock should do anything to get Watson. The only problem is that the Texans do not want Carr 2.0

    Safe to say they will try like hell. Gruden loves Watson way more than he loved AB. And if you're already fielding like 6 players from Clemson and have picked up the moniker " Clemson West "..how do you pass on going after the greatest Clemson player of them all? Not to mention we need some room for error against KC and Watson would be a nice answer to Mahomes for the next however many years

    Carr going to the Texans would be a solid, little story for the NFL and the Texans too. Granted, it was a different regime in Houston at the time, but they did pass on Carr in draft because of his brother so who knows? Think Carolina would be a nice stop for Carr..they wanted Stafford, so they damn well better want Carr. They have some nice weapons on offense in Carolina. Having a stud RB means they can't fuck around with grooming a young QB..they need immediate dividends before Christian McCaffrey is spent. Carr could help. His best chance for glory is surely in the NFC. Brees leaving the Saints could open another slot in the NFC south

    Rams were their own worst enemy when they signed Goff to that hideous contract. I was shocked when they offered him that and this was after a Superbowl. He just wasn't that kind of QB.

    Rumor is the Rams' first target was Aaron Rodgers, but GB didn't want to play. Not sure if that situation will last either. Rams would have been in better position had Goff not had that albatross contract if ARod became available.

    Watson would have been perfect in LA, but no draft picks that were interesting and again, that indecent contract to a mediocre QB.

    David Carr was destroyed by one of the worst O lines in the history of the game. He never had a chance and if Houston passed on Derek because of David it shows how truly fucked up their organization is.

    Yes, we all know the story of David Carr and what happened there. Texans fans don't give a damn about any of that though and ownership didn't wanna have to deal with the stigma. They've done OK without Derek, so I don't believe there's any regret and probably from either side given how far the Texans have fallen since Bob McNair's last year in control

    You have to believe that the Rams had a good read on Goff by then. They were probably scared of the media backlash that would come with moving on from a QB that just played in the Super Bowl. They aren't alone in this though..Ravens surely regret handing Flacco all that money after he won a Super Bowl. Was a terrible deal the day he signed it. Shit happens


    Yeah, Packers are like $30M+ over the cap. No way they would've been willing to take on that much money. And they have to pay Devante Adams soon


    I think Watson would find it a little more fitting on the Vegas strip. https://www.foxbusiness.com/sports/raiders-las-vegas-income-tax-free-agency

    Waller went on 1st take to talk about his pro bowl nod the other day and guess what happened right before he goes on? The Watson trade request goes public and the 1st question they asked him was about Watson. Chucky couldn't have drawn that shit up any better..you know he hit Waller with a text.." hey, Waller maaaan..say somethin nice about Watson, maaaan "

    Cowherd and most of the FS1 crowd love to say random shit that doesn't add up.....not surprised. Waller would be the player that would excite Watson the most about potentially joining the Raiders. Carr would be a lost man without him.

    This championship connection needs to be reunited.

    Yes. Inject that Watson/Renfrow connection directly into my veins, kind sir. Lol But yeah, Waller is a beast. Shit, beast might be an understatement. Think Waller would probably split out and play WR more often with a QB that's constantly threatening the defense and looking to go deep downfield. And Moreau is about ready to see more time at TE after the ACL

    Will Fuller is also leaving the Texans, just in free agency. So if Chucky has to send Ruggs to Houston for Watson, pretty sure Watson would have an inside track on recruiting Fuller to Vegas in free agency and just like that we have another deep threat but one that already has chemistry with Watson

    Multiple @NFL sources indicate to me that Derek Carr is a hot commodity. And it is expected that multiple teams will pursue him via trade That could lead to the @Raiders pursuing Deshaun Watson in a blockbuster trade.
