    After going through what he went through with Pacman, it'll never happen.

    He doesn't need that again.

    And, as we discussed with Mike Williams, if you're not good enough to play for the Raiders, then you certainly have no business here.

    I'm actually tired of misinformed fans making these statements. We have spent the dollars on free-agents before and will continue to do so in the future as long as we feel they fit our needs and are worth the money. In the last few years name one player who you think we should of gotten that we didn't.

    This board was screaming bloody murder when we let Travis Henry, Drew Bennett and Bobby Wade go, they were replaced with Nick Harper. Advantage Titans. We even targeted Stallworth but were turned down for less money elsewhere, so clearly we were willing to spend the money. This is one year after getting David Thorton, Chris Hope, and David Givens. This offseason we targeted and got one of the best guards out there in Jake Scott and continuing with the theme from before we weaken an opposing AFC team. This years crop of FA wideouts were a list of nobody's who had yet to accomplish a single thing in their respected careers, yet this website was going crazy yet again because we didn't waste the millions it required to get proven studs like Bryant Johnson, Stallworth, Porter, Walker, or any of the other future hall of famers... :rolleyes:

    Its actually funny that only 3 free agent WR's have more yards or catches than our own free agent pickup(JMac), who by all means has been less than spectacular. Out of all the free agents that we were talking about only Berrian has produced, yet he hasn't put up the gaudy numbers that a 6 year $42,000,000 contract would require.

    I do however agree that we would never go after Hall. :grrhee:

    He hurt their defense no question but it starts up front and Oakland cannot protect their QB. That's the problem with them.

    He didn't choose to go to Oakland, he was traded there.

    I'm kinda wondering how Hall might be if he converted to receiver. He is fast and despite the bad year he does have 3 picks so his hands cant be all bad. I'm not saying we do it, but it would be interesting to see if a team would be willing to experiment with him like that.

    I agree that is a big part of why they are losing, but that has nothing to do with Deangelo Hall getting burnt by anybody with two working legs. I didn't think he was all he was hyped up to be in Atlanta, and he's just backed that up in Oakland. I'd call it the worst acquisition of the offseason, but then there's also the $55 million the Raiders gave Javon Walker. :hmm: At least Hall has played...

    Classic Al Davis doing what he does best.

    What does JaMarcus Russell have to do with DeAngelo Hall? Nnamdi Asomugha manages just fine in the same defense, why can't Hall?

    Everyone knows Oakland has problems, but their offense doesn't affect their defense.

    I said Oakland's biggest problem is protecting the QB not the secondary. Hall's not even the teams worst player, he still had 3 picks despite all the passes he's let up.

    I'm not misinformed, you are. I'm realistic. I made two statements:
    1) We will never spend money on a WR (which we haven't)
    2) We will not pursue Hall.

    Now...in that statement, did I say anything about free agent aquisitions regarding players OTHER than WR's? NO. I didn't want Berrian for the price. I didn't want Stallworth regardless.

    we shouldn't say we'll never spend money on a WR, I just don't think MR will spend mega money on a WR that doesn't deserve it. I don't think he'll mistake the same mistakes that Reese made paying middle of the road WRs like Pickens and Givens mega money.
