So you're thinking the Raiders are going to wait at 12 to select a QB. I don't think so. I can't see Gruden taking a chance on losing the guy he wants hoping he makes it to 12. He strikes me more as a move up and get him kind of guy. If he wants to move up he can negotiate now and make the trade early like we did with our 3rd. His trade with us gives him another high pick to negotiate with and gets himself in ahead of other possible suitors. He could work up the trade up simultaneously with ours. I just can't see him holding back at 12 and keeping his fingers crossed.
Our QB needs to see open receivers and get them the ball for a few chunk plays. We hardly got any. If we got a few more, to a variety of receivers and not just TY, the offense would have been good enough. We don't need top 5 passing stats, IMO, but we need to be able to score on a 30 yard pass when its there.
Carr can at least do that, and probably a lot more given our pocket protection.
Lol, Ballard has 3 more years before hes potentially on the hot seat. Irsay is a very patient man, and Ballard has done more than any GM since Polian.
To think he could or would be on the hot seat before the next 2 seasons is obnoxious.
