Interesting--wonder where the critical decision was made--Schaub or Oakland.
Considering what we gave up, my money is on Oakland.
That's the problem when two teams want a QB with more upside then experience, one team ends up overpaying!
Overpaying when you can is different than overpaying when you cannot.
I'm still puzzled why the Raiders didn't pounce on Jay Cutler last year with their #7 overall ? He might not have had the West Coast "golden boy" resume of Leinert, but had the big gun that the Raiders like in their QBs and was also more athletic than Leinert.
Not sure you can say we over paid until we know what he does.
Same reason we passed on Young...overconfident in the current QB. Aaron Brooks was a disaster much like Carr was last season. In a bit of a different way, but the same end result.
No one finds it scary that the Raiders and Texans had the same interest in QB's considering the wreck of a franchise that has been the Raiders for several seasons?
I think quite a few teams were interested in Shaub, but they are not making it known in the media like the Raiders have in this story.
Al Davis does not believe in drafting a QB in the first round. Watch this season they will take Johnson and put in some scrub at QB.
