    Asking for my benefit, but... TOs, is that a stat that translates year to year?

    A healthy offense and oline would not have gotten another win or two?

    You can make a strong point that nothing does. But this is the category OB would pick out of the others he’s most proud of. Guy is non stop emphasizing the TO game. ST’s is another. Great emphasis was put there with the hiring of Seeley. They sucked the year before. So the first four stats reflect phases where strong emphasis was made for their improvement. I gotta give credit where it is due and those are positive results.

    Entire O line was an injury with zero depth. Didn’t we have one game where a TE had to be plugged in. What about that line communication everyone values so much here? TE’s were rookies....and Griffin. Fuller went out. No #2 WR. Coutee couldn’t stay healthy. Miller was relieved by Blue. Just looking across our roster now I see viable attempts to stock all those positions yet I still hear the non stop harking on ST’s and TO’s. And on D I see a resolve to find a different breed of CB’s. Looking back not a bad year and this preseason to change the culture of this team. Personally I’ve never seen an attempt like this with the Texans or Oilers.

    Not really. No. Of course there's exceptions. KC has been in the top 6 in TO ratio the last 4 years, and the only team in the top 10 in those 4 seasons.

    Seattle, Rams and Cleveland, along with KC, were in the top 10 last year as well as the previous season.

    Only KC, Philly and Buffalo from '16-'17.
    KC, NE, Buffalo and GB from '15-'16.

    So that's pretty random year to year.

    The Texans were 2nd best last year, and that was a big contributor to their 11 win season. Those extra possessions made a difference. The year before they were 5th worst - 4 wins.

    Powda I'm looking at Keke Coutee although I love the guy. Watching him play I think he can play outside as well as the slot so he would be a useful tool for the Raiders. With our tight ends playing a more significant role as I see it this year plus our improved o line we can do without QT. Stills may fill his spot. Remember that a team receiving a player this season for draft picks in 2020 is a bit different as that team would have the player on field. I want olb Maxx Crosby whom I have researched and mocked to Houston Plus 2020 Raiders first round pick from bears. That would be like a second round pick in the 2019 draft. So a 2019 4th round pick plus 2020 second round pick for QT.

    Okay. Why? The statement you made has no information.

    Perhaps but they are possible indicators of improvement that could continue in 2019.

    Sizzle sells steak. You have to sell the what-if factor. It's the reason he was not cut this offseason. As a rookie in an injured year he was 28 of 41 targets with 10 yards average per catch pretty good. And that is with the other problems we had.

    This is the year OB finally puts it all together huh.

    Fool me once...

    Every year it’s another excuse. This is it. Put up or ship out. The offense we’ve been promised has never come to be. The defense is often bend and break. ST has been consistently terrible. I’m tired of the excuses. I’m tired of hanging on to a hope.

    If this isn’t the start of a series of SB runs we are done done. OB would have wasted JJ’s prime while crippling the future.

    The Raiders are not going to give up more than a 5th for Coutee. They know he can’t stay on the field. So I don’t see this trade happening.

    Coutee is quickly reaching Keenum levels around here. He’s been on the trainers table more than he’s been on the field yet people swoon over him.

    Were there other teams reduced to one starting WR and a patchwork oline and a #2 RB for much of the season?

    The Rams come to mind... seems like Gurley was gimpy off & on and them losing one of their top WRs for the year. That's all I got.

    It's obvious all teams have injuries but one cannot ignore the fact that key injuries matter more.
    If the Rams are the only other team with similar injuries we are in good company.
    Not denying there is work to do and likely time will be needed for the team to gel but I am looking forward to watching my team's progress this year - it beats being Debbie Downer.
