Al Davis is Spending Like it's Going Out of Style
I want to preface this post by stating clearly and soundly that am a Bronco fan.
But I love Al Davis.
In the era of free agency and cap casualties there is one man who makes it rain more than Pac Man Jones in a strip club, Raiders owner Al Davis.
In this NFL where we measure players by Madden speed ratings and fantasy football points Al Davis gets it right. Sign players by any means necessary. Don't worry about how they gel with your core unit or their injury history just get them on the dotted line.
By signing Javon Walker, Drew Carter, Gibril Wilson, Kwame Harris, William Joseph and allegedly trading for De'Angelo Hall Al Davis gets it. Sign as many players rated 80 and above on Madden to your team. Thats has to improve the win column. No need to worry about Javon or De'Angelo's bad attitudes or the fact that Javon and William Joseph combined to play in 3 games last year. The Raiders will one of the best teams on paper and thats all that counts until they have to lace them up in August.
I hope Raider fans are happy right now, because we saw this kind of spending last year with Daunte Culpepper among others and what did it bring the Raiders?
Oh yeah, another top 10 selection. More for the fans to get excited about. Raider fans this is your time of the year, enjoy it while it lasts!
