    Everything I've read and heard about him from people who do watch most of Oakland's games has been that he isn't having a good year.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    FWIW.....

    Rolando McClain and Raiders Coach Dennis Allen had a heated exchange early in practice I'm told. Ended with McClain booted from field...

    which explains his Tweets and the fallout. Allen has said he is not sure if McClain will be allowed to practice Thurs. no further comment

    Yeah I'd take him. Would've taken Babin too but he didn't even make it down to us. Doubt McLain will either.

    This I'd love to get McClain but I don't see it being possible.

    You wouldnt have wanted Babin. Hes a 4-3 DE, only succeeds in the 9-technique. Hes a one trick pony and sucks against the run and the pass.

    Would be an upgrade over our McClain, so yes absolutely interested. Will it happen? No, unfortunately. He's only 23 too

    Seriously, anytime anyone is ever cut, released, or available I know dollars to donuts there will be a thread on it here no matter HOW improbable the signing.

    Babin was a stretch and a horrible idea for us at that.

    Rolando McClain, maybe... hes a great idea however with all of these teams needing linebacking help - not so sure if he'll pass waivers... his contract is hefty though.

    I still cannot for the life of me figure out why EJ Henderson is not on anyones radar or a team for that matter.

    He had over 100 tackles last season, 2 sacks and 3 FF. Hes only 32... W T F?

    Would you rather pay ~6 million next year for Ray or 10 million for Rolando?

    I could see it possibly working out... we pay 10 million and have him the rest of this year and next. He had 5 sacks, ~100 tackles, 14 PDef last season. We cut our current McClain, give his contract to Dannell Ellerbe(something like a 2 year 7 million). Thatd be a pretty solid LB core.

    Rolando's only 23 as well.
