... if/when they finally hit on one, they'll have wasted so many resources on all the missed QBs that it won't matter because they'll have exactly s#!t at every other position on the field. The Raiders have had 11 starting QBs since 2006. 3 of those came in the form of Kerry Collins, Andrew Walter, and Aaron Brooks in 2006.

The Raiders still had to rely on Dante Culpepper and Josh McCown until Russell was ready to play. Let's not forget Bruce Bradkowski and Charlie Frye as fall back when Russell became the biggest bust in NFL history. Jason Campbell helped out somewhere in there as well.
11 QBs in 6 seasons are they're STILL in the market for ANOTHER QB heading into 2013... yeah, let's follow THAT model.
Just not impressed at all with the QB's that are in this draft class, this is one pick, the first, I hope we trade, and get more picks for it. I still think that there are QB's who can play and develop, that will be there in later rounds.
The Raiders used to also be one of the most penalized teams in the NFL for years. Last year, they were one of the least penalized teams. They are cleaning things up there now. I strongly suggest to not turn a blind eye just because it is the Raiders.

My concern with the Raiders isn't the offense. We still need to come up with an answer for their defensive line which has manhandled us.
Geno will go to raiders ...perfect fit
