View Full Version : a raider question(strangely)

Anyone else speculate with the headcoach possibilities narrowing down that either James Lofton or Sarkisian will affect if the Raiders draft Jamarcus Russell or Calvin Johnson.

Lofton may be more inclined to take Calvin Johnson since he was a WR in the NFL for a long time (and a Hall of Famer at that), especially if Randy Moss and Jerry Porter end up leaving. Maybe hiring him would help convince one or both of them to stay, but that's not real likely.

Nah.. Whoever gets the job is going to be a figurehead for Al anyhow.

I see them taking Johnson regardless of who the new coach is.

Sarkisian has taken his name out of the hat, and Lofton was told no thanks.

Capers has yet to sign his new contract. :hmmm:
