Rumor: Mike Goodson Traded To The Raiders?

184 posts in this topic

Must be something. I'm sure he will be gone if he doesn't change, and you never know it might just be the Raiders...

Not sure I could get excited about playing for the Raiders. Could be he just needs people around him to show him how to be a pro. As for expectations, I have the same for him as I had for Goodson...zero.

So does this mean we will be changing the 'Shotgun' formation to the 'Boomstick' formation?

I like the trade. Those that say he's lazy, well maybe a change of scenery and the incentive of playing for a team that is on the rise will light a fire under him. Either that or Rivera will.

Zero risk to this move.

We were cutting Goodson...and were able to take a flyer on an OLineman with great measurables but an underachiever.

If he does not make it out of camp....no biggie.

I remember several mock drafts had the Raiders taking Bruce Campbell in the top 10 a couple years ago.. he is a huge guy and very athletic. Otah insurance for sure. And could compete at OG if Otah is healthy again.

This guy is a fuging monster and he's in shape too. Whoever compared him to Duke Robinson....hah, nothing a like. If they can get this guy motivated and get his technique corrected he could be dominant. As he is right now, nothing more than depth, but he has huge upside.

The Raiders are a mess. I'll form an opinion on what he does in Carolina. I trust Rivera and Matsko. Kid has a lot of potential. Not to mention it opens up our draft options on defense.

I was referring to the players in raiders past (fast, unproductive, and overrated) and to what Goodson will probably become with them (fast and unproductive). There is no evidence in his tenure with us that he will be anything but that. And he really didn't show that he will be unproductive in the future either. But rather, and get this, it's just my guess!

I know what you were getting at, but there is enough of a sampling of Goodson as a Panther---even as a starter---that is indicative of the fact that he can be very productive on the Raiders or anywhere else if given the opportunity. If nothing else, he is an excellent role-player and complementary back that may fill a need behind the oft-injured McFadden. Moreover, Al Davis is pushing up daisies, the raiders have a new regime with a GM that by all accounts knows something about football (certainly more than you and me).

Sure he and Duke Robinson are alike. On paper, they both should dominate ....they have the physical tools (that doesn't mean they have to have the same physique). Neither have shown to give a poo about football.....and that means they suck balls as NFL players.

could of been said about Duke as well.

Considering we normally keep 4 backs on the roster, Josh Vaughan has to be feeling better right now.

Duke was a lazy fat fug who was so fat he eventually ended up on the Pup list. This dude Campbell is a physical specimen.
