Is it crazy to think about trading Cooley? Fred Davis is awesome!

If Jason Campbell keeps playing like this, I absolutely want him back next year. (With a better line of course)

Which defensive back is the biggest liability?

where is the choice "all of them"

Posted by: rachel216 | December 13, 2009 5:58 PM | Report abuse

On the question about which defensive back is the biggest liability you forgot to list an option that says "all of them". That's who I would vote for. At the very least both LaRon Landry and Carlos Rogers need to go.

What are the chances that Vinny/Danny use the 1st round pick on the OL and bring back Soups?

I would have agreed if we knew for sure that none of our FS were the guy, but I'd like to see Moore continue to develop. The rest we can get in the draft with what we have IMO. Cooley is a straight up beast, we know this. 3rd rounder could be...anything.

Posted by: RomoLongballs | December 13, 2009 6:01 PM | Report abuse

I wouldn't run it pass Mr. Snyder and Cerrato to tell some players (i.e.: Landry, and the now released Suisham) to do everything to sabotage a win at this point. Their feelings for Zorn is well documented, and their desire to select a high caliber QB in next year's draft is also well known.
Richy Rich and his Cousin Vinny are already out shopping for a new QB for God's sake. This could be another situation, much like they did before giving Zorn the head coaching position, of getting the ingredients before hiring the cook.
Sadly, I don't think Richy Rich Danny Boy has learned anything this year. The front office with his Cousin Vinny at the helm should be fired along with Zorn, and a GM should be brought in.

Which franchise is in worse shape?

This is a trick question. Based on their current personnel, I'd have to say the Raiders are in worse shape.

But in the big picture, both teams are cursed by incompetent, meddling owners. And Danny Snyder is much younger than Al Davis.

Next week, against the Giants, will be the test if Jason really has improved, under Sherm Lewis. Last week NO had only one day of practice and two thirds of their secondary on the bench injured.
And Oakland is..... well Oakland.

I love that people are saying this win does not count because we are playing the Raiders. This is the same Raider team that beat the Steelers and the Eagles. their D is very good, and they have been better as of late. A win is a win, no matter the team. As for Zorn, I tried to support him, but its obvious he is over his head. Like I said before, get Sherman as the coach and keep J Campbell. draft 2 O lineman and a linebacker and I'm good.

Posted by: JeanJak | December 13, 2009 7:17 PM | Report abuse

re: JeanJak
I agree that we need a GM. Hopefully Danny finally wises up and gets one. And Orakpo was a beast today, that's why we need to draft a linebacker in the 2nd round so he can stay at DE. We are really thin at LB right now, unless 95 has finally come around.

The first person released after this season should be the person directly responsible for using Randle El for punts...again another sorry effort and one that could have been costly...
