I would like to see the Raiders win the AFC West; hope you're right about that.
I just don't see the Cowboys winning the NFC East, though. They have too many issues: Greg Hardy, (unless he's already cut); Elliott being accused of assault, to name a few. Then there's the idea of Romo staying healthy, which isn't a sure thing. I'd be surprised if they do take first place.
This hurts. No pun intended. Safety was a big concern going into the season even with a healthy Geathers. It sure sounds like Geathers is going to miss some considerable time. We are not in good shape with the safety position.
I don't agree. If they're back ups with potential to start in the future, they were good picks. Not every draft pick is going to start or even make the team. The hope is that they improve the team, and quality depth definitely improves a team.
Besides, do you really want more than one rookie starter protecting the franchise?
Varga was a nice kid. I talked with him last year at training camp. He just seemed like a normal dude, like one of my good friends. Being in the NFL never "got to him" per say. He made the right choice after reading his statement on his concussions. I couldn't imagine looking for apartments all day and then leaving and not even remember what the apartment looked like. Scary. His health is worth more than playing football.
They're arguably one of the three most talented teams in the AFC and have been the last several years. I don't know how much longer Brown is going to put up with the post season failures before he makes a change.
You have to give him credit for sticking with Lewis, though. He's a good coach, and if it wasn't for a couple boneheaded players last year they may have gone a lot farther.
