Let's get rolling.
Let's get rolling.
do you think the Broncos will end up resigning Elvis Dumerville? And if they don't which direction do you think they will go?
Could be done today. It's all fluid. If it's not Dumervil, it's Abraham or Freeney.
How long do you think RM will wait to start looking at starting quality CB's? Do you think there is any chance Nhamdi or C-Wood will make a return to the east bay?
Should be soon. He knows the deal. He has already gotten some decebt players. need to address the CBs. It's a buyers market.
Urlacher to the Broncos, your thoughts? He's 34 and we had a 37 year old Brooking playing linebacker for us last year.
I can see the conenction. But they signed Stewart Bradley and they like him.
Any chance we could see the Chiefs or Raiders let the clock expire and fall down a few spots in the draft (i.e. Minnesota Vikings/Kevin Williams)?
I guess there's a chance every team can do that. I was covering the Vikings then. Crazy, crazy day.
Why in the world are McClain and Kelly still on the roster??
I relaly don't have an answer. Trade posisbility, I guess, but, yeah, whatever.
Hi Bill, should chargers fans temper their optimism for 2013 season, are the chargers a 4-6 win team?
Well, they haven't gotten any worse, but have they gottne better? Got to help that offense.
The chiefs don't have a lot of cap space left, would urlacher be cheap enough to fit?
Yeah, maybe. But I'm not sure they want him. But he's a smart vet.
Raiders linebacking corp. at least respectable now?
We will see. Righty now, it's new. Let's see if it is good.
If the Bronco's move on from Doom, do you think they go DE with #28 and if so who?
Depends on if they sign a vet pass-rusher.
Have you heard any new news on Chiefs trading the #1 overall pick? If so what teams are interested and what would the Chiefs get in return?
Infant stages. Andy Reid has said there has been some talks, but it will take some time to develop.
Know anywhere I can get a reliable fax machine for a good deal?
Plenty in 1998.
Chiefs ILB spot next to Derrick Johnson... are they talking to anybody, or content to wait until the draft?
A wiat and see deal.
What are the chances that Albert is traded?
I thinks it's possible. I think the team would love to get that second-round pick bad, It can happen.
Is it possible that the Raiders could sign J. Ford Veldheer Houston and McFadden to long term deals this year?
Yes, I can see it. But they have to see if Ford is healthy first before thinking long-term deal with him.
After their recent free agent signings, what is the next hole Kansas City needs to fill? Thanks...
ILB or RT. Not a ton of holes for a 2-14 team.
I am all in with TT and MM with the Bolts purge and additions......not big names but good pickups to give some flexibility and support in key areas. People get all caught up in "names" versus filling needs.
I like Cox and Rinehart. But they must get more help on the O-line.
Any chance the Raiders sign a big name or continue to sign unknown good players? Would be nice to get Dumervil but do we have the $$?
Maybe one name guy if the price is right. But they have a lot of needs and limited resources, so don't count on it.
With Urlacher out in Chicago and Roach now with the Raiders, is it crazy to think the Bears could have some interest in McClain? And is he worth more than just a 7th round? Or, is it more likely teams will just wait for him to get cut (which eventually has to happen if he's not traded)?
I could be stunned if they got anything more than a seven for McClain. he's bust and trouble off the field. Evena seven would be good.
Any word about teams interested in Peyton Hillis? It seems bizarre he was on the Madden cover 2 years ago, did he fall off the face of the Earth?
Yeah, he is not a hot guy on the market. He'll find work at some point.
Raiders need at least one Vet WR to mentor some of these young guys. Anyone other than bringing back Hagan a possibility?
Hagan is a good fit there. There are other needs, so I'm not sure if a vet receiver will be a top priiority.
Who would you pick Bill? Freeney or Abraham?
Freeney is younger, but Abraham was more prodcutive last year. May lean Freeney, but depends on money.
Do you think Tony Moeaki can develop into a Vernon Davis-type target for Alex Smith?
I'm a big Moeaki fan. Really like his game. If he cna stay healthy, he is a player. Could relaly benefit from working with Reid.
Any chance Huff re-signs with the Raiders?
You never know, but it seems like he has some interest.
Do you see the Chargers trading up to ensure they get a top 3 LT in the draft? I think there's a chance Johnson doesn't make it to #11 with Joeckel and Fisher expected to go top 5.
I don't think so, because they have other needs so they wnat to keep their picks, but they need to get that LT for sure. I think, as of now, Lane Johnson is there at No. 11.
what are the chances the raiders try to get urlacher? they need a veteran presence on defense
They got Roach to play the middle.
When will terrance newman decide
Any day now. Wouldn't shock me if it was today.
Are there any indications that Mark Davis is willing to ride out one more dismal year and keep current staff in 2014?
Really depends on how bad is dismal. Rememebr,. Davis uses code words like 'progress." If progress is not made, changes will be.
You know where there's a Taco Bell nearby?
Gotta be withina mile. That's the rules, right?
Were Pat Sims and Vance Walker brought into be starters? or is that just a depth move?
I think as heavy rotaitonal guys, maybe starters. They have started a combined 10 games last season.
Who do you have in the Final Four?
Louisville, Ohio State, Georgetown and Cuse.Luisville winning.Commence mocking.
With little cap room and many holes too fill tell me that Reggie will trade down if possible
I think he'd love to.
I saw your latest mock draft and I love the pick of Lacy at 28. Do you think they would go RB over CB at that pick?
The need may be greater. If Lacy is a better prospect than the best CB, that could be a factor as well.
I still think KC takes Geno Smith why not?
They have their starter.
Star to the Chargers if he's there and all lineman are gone?
If he is there and he is healthy, that's a steal. But again, what about LT?
Hi Bill, what is the course of action for the chargers on Gaither? Is he cut after the preseason games or will he be cut before?
I think he could be gone in a couple of weeks.
Any word on interest in DHB?
I've heard Philly and the Jets.
Any chance the raiders get rid of cooper Carlisle this year?? I hate this guy! I thought we finally got rid of khalif Barnes but RM brought him back. Please let Carlisle goooooooooooo!
First of all, Coop is a good man.Second, he is a feel agent.So you may be in the clear.
Does the value of an Eric Winston out way the money and production of a Vollmer or Albert? Or Vice Versa
Well, he's a right tackle and yes, he's cheaper.
Hi Bill, if the chargers feel that top 3 LT's will be gone by 11, what is more probable to trade up, stay and go BPA, or trade down and draft one the guards?
Probably BPA, which may be one of the guards.
What's the likelihood that the Raiders would draft Millner 3rd instead of Floyd?
Sure, especially if the CB posiiton is not solved soon.
Hey Bill, on two separate occasions you said the Raiders are dealing with an impatient owner. What are you basing that on? Because of 1 comment that he wanted to see progress, or are you throwing him in that boat cuz of who his father is? Not cool
Calling someone inpatient is not bashing so settle down.It is based on his comments and the fact he has tlaked to Holmgren about a leadership role. That's just the facts. I hope that cool enough for you.
Hi Bill, kept hearing how awful KC's oline was last year--other than Hudson's injury and Lilja having to slide over, what is their weakest area?
The inexperience inside. But those goes got better.
Why couldn't the Chiefs get a trade done for Cassel? The Vikings signed him about 5 minutes after KC cut him and there was talk that the Bucs were interested as well.
When it is obvious a guy is going to get cut, a trade is tough.
I don't appreciate you saying I'm impatience based off one set of comments I made last season saying I wanna see progress.
Chris, I don't appreciate you impersonating someone.
WHat's the latest on Eric Winston and the chargers. If it's not gonna be him then what other tackles could they target during free agency?
Chargers are still interested. But Miami is in the mix and he wnet to school there.
Running back depth behind McFadden, Stewart and ? Seems to need several bodies added for camp with at least 1 additional for season. Any ideas who?
Yep, it is another need area.
What are your expectations for Ryan Mathews under the new coaching staff?
I just want to see him healthy and then we're worry about expectations.
What do you see Anthony Fasano's role being in the Chiefs offense? Is he their #1 receiving TE, or does that role still belong to Moeaki with Fasano being a good blocker?
No. 2 guy.
Hi Bill, any chance the chargers open up some more cap space and make a serious run at Vollmer or Andre Smith, clearly the needs in the Oline are rather massive?
They could be tempted, but right now, that seems like a longshot
Is SD a possible landing spot for Early Doucet?
Whisenhunt is a fan so yes.
Will the raiders ask Sims to gain weight/muscle to plug him in at NT? He's already like 325 right?
I think he is good where he is.
Whats your take on the Raiders resigning Khalif Barnes
He's Ok. Just a guy.
Do you think that Carson willbecome a cap casualty, or the Raiders will pay him?
It is still a work in progress. if I had to guess, I think he stays but they need to cut that pay.
Who will be the starting cornerbacks for the chargers going in 2013? Cox and ... gilchrist?
Karlos Dansby seems like he could help several, if not all, of the teams in this division. He had a nice 2012... why hasn't anyone signed that guy?
Better fit for the Chiefs and Chargers. 3-4 guy.
Could the Raiders just package up DMC & J. Ford to acquire some more draft choices Bill?
McFadden may be worth a 3 or 4. Ford may be worth less because he is hurt so often
The Chargers WR corps seems to be a little, um, underwhelming. Do you see them adding a WR in the draft?
I agree. Yes, they need to get more help there.
What are the chances the Raiders can resign Lechler
He's in Houston now. He could re-sing there now.
Who do you think will play opposite to eric weddle
Maybe Brandon Taylor, but they could use an upgrade.
I still think Baltimore will offer something for McClain, I honestly think in a 3-4 and if his head is on right he could be a good player. Maybe a conditional pick in 2014?
Maybe. They could use the help. ozzie is an Alabam guy. Maybe he will believe in him.
What do you think the chances are that the Raiders take Joeckle at 3.
If he is there, they could think about him. But they need defense.
Hey Bill, do you think Dennis Allen is the right man for Oakland?
I like Dennis. Good football man.
Albert to the Dolphins for a 3rd rounder? Chiefs take it?
Dolphins have two second-rounders. I think the CHiefs would hold out for one of those picks.
Are Raiders satisfied with their offense? So far no moves and they need upgrade at WR, OL and RB not to mention QB. When do they address?
It's just that denfese is a bigger priority.
Hi Bill, with Spikes cut by the chargers is the ILB job Jonas Mouton's to lose, or are they bringing in a stopgap veteran for the job?
I think they bring in someone.
Have you spoken with Raheem Moore since the playoffs? If so, what is his mind set since the debacle against BAL?
No, but ELway and Fox vouch for him. They have really spent some time getting him right. The team really like what he did last season before you you now .. the gaffe.
hypothetically if the Raiders were to trade the #3 pick how many picks could they possible get for it?
Two or three.
Great hour, folks.Enjoy the madness
