    Also, it feels weird to have a team in the Playoffs again.

    Between them and Parra I haven’t had much of a chance to cheer on the postseason recently.
    Milwaukee Bucks are helping me out as well.

    Everything’s coming up Quinty!

    Depending on your metabolism it takes around 20-30 mins to get your aerobic rate up, so you do more fat stripping for say 10 mins after you reach that level than you do in the first 30 mins. If you increase the intensity then you will get there quicker.

    One thing you can try if you have the time is to get your intensity up as fast as you can and if you are not fit enough to maintain it, then you can do a "walk sprint" meaning walk as fast as you can for say 2-4 mins or what ever you can handle, then slow down get your breath for equal amount of time, then sprint again.

    The fitter you get the longer you can maintain the sprints and the fat stripping becomes exponential.

    Rumour mill has it that Raiders GM Mike Mayock is on the outer...

    Fml - the Raiders back office makes the Eels look like geniuses.

    If you mean the Eels previous management I’ll remind you that this in charge recorded in their meeting minutes their decisions to cheat the salary cap. And left all the information on their computers for investigators to find. And they hired Steve Kearney.

    Nobody could make them look like geniuses.

    Although Mark Davis does look like this, so...

    I'll remind you that the Raiders organisation is responsible for granting JaMarcus Russell an NFL start.

    They also signed Antonio Brown.

    And traded away Khalil Mack.

    And Nnamdi Asomugha.

    And keep handing Derek Carr starting QB duties.

    I'd say it's neck-and-neck, tbh...

    Well yeah.

    But at least they’re not the Browns.

    Have to say mate, I am starting to see your way of thinking re: Carr. Watching this season infuriated me with checkdown after checkdown, screenpass, screenpass, screenpass.
    3rd and 15 on the opposisions 20 yard line. we'll have a short gain of 7 thanks. WTF? He is also way too quick to give up on the play and throw it away
    The ony thing that could save him is that he doesn't have a whole lot to pass to outside of Waller, although Renfrow seemed to come good towards the end. He reminds me of Scott minto though. Looks like a 40 year old already

    Yep.

    Carr's instincts are terrible.

    He has always been terrible.

    What does Oakland do in the draft?

    Hopefully, if we insist on giving Carr the starting QB spot, we go for some decent wideouts; Renfrow is a gun, but Carr seems to only throw to Renfrow, or Waller.

    I would also like to see us strengthen our defence - our linebackers are hot garbage, and we could use some athleticism in that department.

    What I dont get with Carr is he is very mobile. Why don't they design some plays for him to run. To much boring safe game play.
    When Phili won the superbowl they just went all out. Watching Foles go toe to toe with Brady and winning out was one of the best things I have seen in NFL. They won by taking huge risks.

    I think there are three issues:

    (1) Gruden is not a fan of the modern-day QB; he likes old-fashioned, gun-slinging, field general QB's. Word is he is slowly coming around to the new, hybrid QB's - we will see.

    (2) Carr's feel for the game is, honestly, hot garbage. He is a very poor decision maker, and I feel that perhaps giving him a licence to run may prove troublesome.

    (3) Carr, since his leg injury in 2016, is afraid of contact. He shies away from it.

    I remember Gruden was a big fan of Johnny Manziel. Was commentating at the Draft and was amazed he wasn’t taken higher.
    That’s when I had an idea that Gruden may not be the best judge of QBs.
