LOL ;-D

Actually I was amazed that Sapp was close to signing for the bengals, it was so far away from his persona, I agree with GP, the raiders are a perfect fit for him.

This year's moves by the Raiders in FA have shown me that they are NOT planning on rebuilding just yet, as they must think they've got a few more shots at the SB with the old guys they've got.

They've added a couple guys in their mid-30's.

Also, what that I think tells me is that they're probably eyeing Fitz/Williams in the draft. With the way they're going (win now, rebuild later), I doubt they'd take Manning/Roethlisberger, as QB's take time to develope, whereas they could probably just plug one of the WR's in and get some immediate results, far moreso than plugging a rookie QB in at least.

I could see them picking up Fitz/Williams and using whichever one with Jerry Porter to actually bring some speed back to the team. I don;t think there QB situation is that bad. They have a skillful young player for the future in Tuiososiusoppaososiousisuisso.(not sure if I used enough vowels?)

I was all about ripping fat-bastard if he went to Cincy, but I kinda see him fitting in in Oakland. Be hard to do anything up the middle with he and Washington there. Just paint a doughnut on the center's helmet and you'll never move those two. I just hope fat-bastard doesn't steel the goal line carries.

All Cinci ever do is drive up the players price.

Very insightful.

The loss of Rod Coleman was a bit of a blow, but Sapp and Washington now make up one of the league's premier tackle combinations. The Raiders should be a lot better than last year and if they acquire Dillon, snag Mike Williams or Lurry Fitzgerald, and Gannon doesn't shit the bed. Wow, that team could contend.

it seems like everyone has forgot about parella and brayton. parella will be good in the rotation and if the raiders can come up with another de to compliment brayton, look out.

i just cant see the raiders selecting a WR first pick and moving Rice to the 3rd reciever slot. I really think they go QB first round and let Gannon tutor him for a year or two.

I doubt they'd sign all these old guys that only have a few years left, to go along with all the old guys they already have that have a few years left, only to draft a player that they can't use until the old guys are gone.

I'd look for them to draft someone that can help immediately, and we all know rookie qb's can't do that.

warren sapp may be well advanced in years but he is still pretty good and honestly i think tampa bay will not miss him. THey have anthony mcfarland simeon rice and a bunch of other younger defensive linemen i think it was good of tampa to get rid of another big mouth player.
