al davis never ceases to amaze me. Trading the best corner in the league and your first rd pick for a qb who has never carried a team and will suspended to start the year
You say that like the deal is done...that was a rumor some random fans are talking about. For all we know it has 0 truth to it...and actually. It's a really good deal for the Raiders.
We lose Aso but what has he helped us do? He is great but lets face it, he wasn't helping us win games. We basically trade Aso for Ben strait up...I'll take a franchise QB over an elite CB who will most likely be leaving in the next 2 years. Not to mention he will be paid about 20 million next year and the year after.
Then we switch 1st round picks...allowing us to still get a stud offensive lineman like like Iupati or Pouncey without reaching...rumors are saying the Raiders are considering Iupati with #8...we can pick him up later in the round.
@ you saying he hasn't lead a team to s**t...what about those 2 superbowls he won? I don't care how good his defense or running game was...this is a team sport...and this man played the most important position on the team and proved he can win it not once but twice.
If the Raiders can manage to get Big Ben and Iupati then that would be a GREAT move for them...
