    I think with Oak's OL McNabb will be crushed and on the sidelines injuried wihtin the first couple games. Not a big deal. They might be better off with the tackle size Russell.

    Not to mention their real only downfield threat (Bey) couldn't catch the ball if it was a toliet paper roll.

    At a glance, McNabb looks like a perfect fit in Oakland. His numbers last year (22 TDs, 1- INTs, 3,553 yds and a 92.9 arbitrary number that means nothing) seem to indicate he's still one of the league's best passers, and the Raiders certainly aren't going to make him wet his pants with any playoff expectations. But you have to ask yourself -- if McNabb is still among the game's elite quarterbacks, why are the Iggs in such a hurry to dump him? Does Andy Reid know something the rest of the world doesn't about Kevin Kolb (who has, himself, been the subject of much unsubstantiated trade gossip)?

    Frankly, it looks to me like the AFC Worst is getting . . .  well . . .   worse, not better, and as bad as Oakland is, it might be a .500 team by accident. McNabb would be a great pickup for the silver and black, and that right there should be all you need to know to tell you that Al won't do it.

    Re: McNabb McMess Could Hurt Patriots

    you know what, this is a really good point. mcnabb is still a good player and an excellent leader. its not impossible to think that mcnabb and seymour bring some confidence and real leadership to this team and actually help to get some of those players like heyward-bey, mcfadden and all of their other under achievers to lay better. i dont think they would be a playoff team but they could certainly be middle of the pack, which would be a real let down for us. of course there is no guarantee and mcnabb and big sey could both go down by week 3. plus oakland would be losing their best player in the trade (i'm not going to attempt to spell his name). 
    however, i think we all agree that if russell is oakland's QB this season they are a bottom 3 team...and thats what we need!! maybe if this trade looks imminent or goes down the pats should really look into trading the pick for use in this years draft some how...

    Donovan McNabb is a QB and he is a leader,is a great passing QB? I don't think he will be on anyone's all-time passing lists. He could at one time beat you with his ability too run the ball but those days are probably long gone.. The Raiders would have give up at least their 2nd rounder too acquire him and in my opinion he's not that big a difference maker. So the Raiders would still be a second tier team. 5-11 would be a good season.

    Do the Raiders actually have ANY picks left, or have they traded them all away for Al's fantasies?

    I wouldn't rule out Buffalo, McNabb did play his college ball at Syracuse University. He could be reunited with Terrell Owens, lol.

    I agree if he signs with Oakland he would make them at least a .500 team overnight. That would be bad.

    Oakland picks: 8(1st rd) 39(2nd rd) 69(3rd rd) 106(4th rd) 138(5th rd) 158(5th rd) 215(7th rd) 251(7th rd).

    Re: McNabb McMess Could Hurt Patriots

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    Leave it Al to make the wrong moves at the wrong time for NE.

    Trading for McNabb is a short fix for a team that needs more than a QB -- i.e., it needs to replace the reserve army of "speedy" busts with excellent triangle numbers that are clogging the bench and the payroll. It needs OL bench juggernauts to start panning out. Or better yet, it needs replace the philosophy that prioritizes physical attributes over football acumen.

    I think McNabb is the most underrated QB of his generation. However, he merely improves the Raiders into a one and done team -- at best -- while further diminishing their stock of future picks needed to shore of the world's best full-contact 40 yard dash team (if only the NFL had opted to decide overtime with a 100m relay, says Al).

    However, it also would scr3w New England by moving their selection to the middle of the pack or later.

    Yep, don't want to see this happen. We probably get a top 5 pick as they are now, with McNab somewhere around 12. To bad we chose the pick for next year, this draft looks pretty good, and I don't want to waste another season of Tom's career.

    Re: McNabb McMess Could Hurt Patriots

    Calm Down........This is in no way ever going to hurt the Patriots. First you guys who are shouting out stats need to remember one thing, Coaches in this league for the most part know all about Mcnabb.
    His Leader skills are not that great considering his own team mates including 1 WR already in Buffalo that knows hes a choke artist and gives up under pressure. Thats just a proven fact over the years. So when it comes down to it he may get you some wins but for the money he will always choke or be injured.
    Now with that said, the one team that may take him for a rebuild process would most likely be Buffalo, although Al Davis has made many unusual moves, what is he willing to do to get DM? I see him going to Buffalo.
    The point is, stop worring about it, until the day after the draft, all the speculation and worrying is going to do is give you an upset tummy and give you gas, and while sleeping your going to pass that gas. Then your wife or girlfriend is going to smack you upside your head and all for what? Worrying about Dumb Dumb Mcnabb? Let Al Davis worry about him, BB will put his usual spin on this draft and hopefully we get some players that can play. Now calm down, drink a beer, watch the Matrix and chill. Free your mind Neo, FREE YOUR MINDUndecided

    Re: McNabb McMess Could Hurt Patriots

    I posted this possibility first, a few days ago, thinking that he would go to Oakland and hurt our chances of a getting a high pick.

    There are two elements that most of you here aren't discussing:

    1) He can complicate any deal to any team if he doesn't work out a contract. No team is going to give up a top 42 pick knowing they're only renting McNabb for one season.

    2) Can he and will he exercise that power knowing that he's an aging veteran and that there's a possible lockout looming in 2011?

    Just for kicks, there's a third element:

    3) Philly now pretty much HAS to move him because it's not going to be pretty if they keep him with him knowing that they tried hard to dump him. It's one thing for Philly fans to want him out but it's another thing for team to bench you two years ago and then try and trade you. Only to bring you back and say "we wanted you this whole time"

    I can't see Mcnabb going to oakland, maybe some other team.

    Re: McNabb McMess Could Hurt Patriots

    I could see McNabb going to the Raiders and making that top ten pick a top 15 pick. Al is pretty desperate to start winning football games as opposed to the scouting combine Olympics. Mc Nabb is very good player nearing the end of a career. I never understood why fans in Philly wanted to throw him under a bus (something you could easily do with Ricky Williams without batting an eyelash) every time they lost. At this late stage in his career Mc Nabb's ability has slightly eroded and he could become another Iggles castoff that succeeds elsewhere (Dawkins, Shepperd...), but he will need the talent around him. The Raiders have a mediocre OL and slightly above average defense. The coaching is still very bad. The Raiders might have some decent players, but I don't think they go from worst to first just because McNabb has chosen to become the black hole's savior.

    Schefter is reporting this too, therefore I have to take it a little seriously. I can see this happening, but the Eagles will try to rake Al over the coals first. The Raiders are more than just a few draft picks away from legitimacy.

    What would it cost the Raiders to get Mc Nabb ?
