    weird, I read somewhere else that one of the biggest surprise of the proday was that the Raiders were one of the only teams without a rep there.

    I don't think it's gonna happen, but what would we need from the Raiders to make that trade down? :stirpot:

    Swap spots, Randy Moss, and either their 2nd rd'r or 3rd rd'r. Or just a swap of the spots and Moss.

    The Raiders weren't there yesterday according to ESPN Radio. Probably means they'll take him. LOL.

    Greetings all....

    The Oakland Raiders organization simply do not deserve someone as MAGNIFICENT as the VY. PERIOD!

    Why don't they simply stick to their own.......someone who just loves to walk around with a California area code upon his head......."espn's very own reggie bush".

    For us REAL TEXANS are quite certain that he will indeed be lurking around somewhere..........he will look JUST DIVINE in a Raider's uniform, area code and all.......

    VINCE YOUNG IS COMING HOME TO HOUSTON WHERE HE BELONGS! For it's high time to STOP THE SPINNING, AND START THE WINNING!

    Adult Life Span: If you are thinking only in terms of the winged adult stage, the answer is simpler. Marking studies suggest that adults of many (and perhaps most) species live only a week or two, and that the male tends to live a few days less than the female. However, in some species, the adult life span of some generations may be much longer. For example, in some species, adults that emerge in late summer or early fall hibernate overwinter in a sheltered spot. Also fall-hatched monarch butterflies migrate south in fall and northward in spring. Adults of these species may survive for 8-9 months or longer.

    Total Life Span: Total life span includes time spent in the larval and pupal stages, as well as the adult stage. Butterflies of North America and Moths of North America list the number of annual "flights" for many species. A "flight" is a generation of adults. Thus, if a species has "two flights from May through September" it means that one generation will emerge from the pupal stage in spring and a second in summer. Actual months of emergence depend on latitude. Life spans of these two generations will be very different depending upon the species’ strategy for getting through the winter.

    Oh beautiful and bountiful Monarch, god speed to you.

    EDITING to inlcude a :). I do not want people to think that I hate Monarchs nor our member under the same name. In fact I just built a butterfly alley on the side of my yard.

    Wow Kaiser that was maybe the most thought out and well orchestrated way to say on your way to hell I have ever read. Kudos to you.

    Would one think that the Raiders gave A. Brooks a two year deal so he can tutor VY. A QB who is a vet and has the running tendency and is from the south. VY could learn alot from Brooks, not how to play (maybe a little) but more or less how to be a pro. The offense would not need to be changed too much when/if VY takes over and since it's only a 2 year deal (most players never see the last year of a contract), VY could be the projected starter in '07.

    I'd much rather see him here but my other choice is Tenn but with Leinert possibly still on the board they may take him so my next choice would be the Cards.
    A. Close to home.
    B. Running game (Edge).
    C. Stud receivers (Bolden, Fitzgerald, and Bryant).
    D. New stadium.
    E. Denny Green, who has plenty of exp with that type of QB (Cunningham and Culpepper).
    F. K. Warner would be the best at teaching him how to read Defensive coverages.
    G. The possibility to start sooner rather than later.
    They just need to work on the line and get better production out of their D. This would probably require a trade up to 4, 5, or 6.

    Sorry for going off topic.

    I dunno....going all the way back to "The Mad Bomber" (Daryl Lamonica ), the
    Raiders have always liked the vertical game, the long bomb. And the same guy, ole Al Davis, is still running the show out there. That's really not VYs game is it ?

    He has a big and consistent arm in my opinion. In looking at yards per completion for 2005 it broke down like this:

    VY 14.3
    Cutler 11.2
    Leinart 8.85
