McAsshole screwing over Hunter Renfrow has been a hot topic on CF for the past year. Very concerning. Max Crosby, Spillane, and Masterson make the defense interesting. They’re off to a 0-2 start with Jimmy G as QB. Amongst League Leaders in starters though with 7. Only 12 total.

OFFENSE

QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Brian Hoyer, Aidan O’Connell

LT Kolton Miller

RG Greg Van Roten Jordan Meredith

TE Austin Hooper , Michael Mayer, Jesper Horstead

WR Hunter Renfrow

DEFENSE

DE Max Crosby

OLB Robert Spillane


OLB Luke Masterson

Practice Squad: C Hronsis Grassu and TE Cole Fotheringham.

IR: OL Dalton Wagner

Masterson only played 6% of the snaps in both Weeks 1 and 2, so it's a stretch to call him a starter. The Raiders only use two linebackers and OurLads currently has Masterson listed as the backup to Divine at MLB.

I'm wondering how much longer we should consider Renfrow a starter. He's been outsnapped over the first two games by someone named Kristian Wilkerson. Renfrow's snap count did go up in Week 2, but probably only because Meyers missed the game with a concussion. When Meyers comes back we'll see how he's used. But just one target in the first two games combined -- sickening.

Thanks Bucky for writing up the Raiders. Interesting team as you've pointed out as they have a good number of starters but almost no depth. Crosby is one of my favorite players to watch (total beast) and Spillane is really looking like a stud.

One small overlook I noticed was backup G/C Jordan Meredith missing. If we add in him, plus the 3 special teamers (K, P, LS), then we see that the Raiders are middle of the road with 15 Whites overall. I think Don makes a far point on Masterson as well, but at 7 starters the Raiders are still better than most....

Good to know. I’ve adjusted it. I’m holding out hope Renfrow gets involved in a big way or traded asap.

This article unintentionally illustrates the Caste System in a nutshell, yet another underwear Adonis who sucks at football and who already looks like a huge bust:

The Raiders were thrilled when Texas Tech edge rusher Tyree Wilson fell to them with the seventh-overall pick in the draft, but through the first three games of his NFL career, Wilson has not lived up to the hype.

Everyone understood that Wilson was going to need to develop as a pass rusher, but no one expected him to make almost no impact out of the gate.

According to Pro Football Focus analytics, Wilson has rushed the quarterback on 55 plays this season and created only one pressure.

The only pass-rushing maneuver we’ve seen from Wilson has been a constant bull rush that, quite frankly, hasn’t been all that impressive.


Tyree Wilson has a 0.0% pass rush win rate through three games this season. That is the lowest of any rookie who’s played at least 25 pass rushing snaps. Many NFL scouts leading up to the NFL Draft criticized Wilson for his “lack” of moves and finesse when it came to pass rushing. Wilson also has the same amount of missed tackles as tackles so far (1). It’s still early, but hopefully the Raiders 7th overall pick can figure it out

The fear among Raider fans is simple.

They don’t want Wilson to be the next Clelin Ferrell – who the Raiders drafted with the fourth-overall pick in 2019.

The “next Clelin Ferrell” might be a clever way of calling a player a busted draft pick, but there’s a chance that Wilson’s game is, in fact, not very different than the aforementioned Ferrell.

Both have incredible size and measurements, but don’t necessarily have the athleticism of the better edge rushers in the NFL.


Wilson may have it, but he hasn’t shown it yet.

Wilson didn’t participate in drills at the NFL combine because of a foot injury, but he did blow away everyone in attendance with his size and physique. A MockDraftable diagram shows his impressive measurements compared to others in the NFL at his position…


And while Wilson’s measurements are practically off the charts, they actually compare similarly to Ferrell’s measurements.

Take a look at Ferrell’s numbers in 2019…


There are plenty of qualified analysts who have weighed in on Wilson’s abilities as a pass rusher, but it’s worth noting that Ferrell actually recorded 10 more sacks (27) in his collegiate career than Wilson (17).

Both played four seasons, but Ferrell played in nine more games than Wilson, who only played in 12 combined games as a freshman and sophomore.

Wilson has plenty of time to develop into a perfect bookend to Maxx Crosby, but for now he looks a lot more like Ferrell than Crosby… both literally and figuratively.

Interested to see how O'Connell fares as a starter. I'll be rooting for him. Perhaps Renfrow will now get re-involved in the offense.

It's going to be funny if/when the Raiders don't hire Pierce as the head coach and Davis will have to deal with the predictable whining about not enough black coaches fallout. Not sure he thought this through.

Total mid season meltdown mode. Best of luck to O’Connell!

I dunno, to me it looks like it will be a massive improvement for the team in general. Talent-wise across the board, the Raiders are probably league average. They didn't do any fire sales at the trade deadline, so they still have what they started with. They got rid of the main problems, McDaniels and the worthless GM. Aiden O'Connell looked fantastic in preseason. Without Don's favorite "McAsshole", I think the offense will become instantly better which will help Crosby and the D as well.
