    I'm too lazy to do cutups but some high-level thoughts below. This is based on the two times NE has played them since 2009 (appropriate sample size), and my thoughts from wayyy far away. - Marcel Reese is SO good. Truly outstanding, the class of his position. -I liked what I saw from Carr. More or less what I saw at Fresno: a natural arm, easy velocity, confidence in the pocket, and repeatable arm slot. He doesn't always see the field well but at least he keeps his eyes up and works on it. - But if I were banking, he'll be trade bait after they draft Marcus Mariota next year. Mariota is another level, I'm furious I don't scout the west coast this year. -I didn't love the Hayden pick last year. He moves pretty well but really struggled to locate the ball in college. I watched him a lot and thought he was a second day player. It's not that he's a bad player - hardly. It's that the expectation has been made unrealistic. -As usual, the team is long on H/W/S. Though Al Davis is gone, his philosophy of putting an emphasis on raw numbers remains strong. Raiders scouts still are asked to keep tabs on the track background of all potential prospects. They have the tallest and heaviest OL in the league as well. -Reggie gets a lot of blame but he rescued you guys from the worst cap situation of any team in the salary cap era. Every cap guy in sight lol'd at mentions of the Raiders cap situation. The amount of dead money they had was a bad joke. Dead money = money paid to players no longer on the team. -Now their offseason plan was shit. They finally clear up some cap room, then go and sign every 30+ YO player they can find? What? Woodley and MJD were particularly stupid signings. As a result, it's the second oldest 53 in the league I think. -Surprised at how well Woodson continues to play. His instincts are off the charts good. Last thought: I think it would be so cool to get to rebuild the Raiders. There is something uniquely badass about the Silver and Black...The league is a better place when the Raiders are winning and playing the bad guy. I'd love to see John Gruden back there, and have a hunch that it may one day happen.

    you have to travel very far vertically though, which is even worse when you have larger posts. and you have to flick back and forth more often in this case, rather than a smoother, longer single directional scan. not to mention.. forums are a different beast to blogs just look at say.. e90post.. bimmerforums, e46fanatics and how much better the FORUM layout is. because on a forum you tend to have all sorts of extra information and formatting, it's not pure text in an article. also @Sticky i've lost the 'notifications' drop down menu box thing. it pops up on initial page load then vanishes. ED: that blog post annoys the hell out of me why not just make it a single word per line to take it to the extreme? it's just such a waste of space I am so excited for 'internet 3.0' when all this bad design can just... leave. SOME whitespace is good design.. when you've wasted 30-40%+ of your realestate.. not good.

    because too much whitespace is worse than not enough.. all the whitespace does in this sort of site (forum) is make it uneccessarily vertical.. which combined with the now imperfect spacing/formatting, makes it phenomenally tall... this single post of mine? on the screen i'm on now, takes up the WHOLE screen. and this is a small post i'd normally expect to be (vertically) 30-50%... yes jalopnik is even worse (with the thick sidebar it's more like 60% wasted) http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2011/03/whats-happened-to-jalopnik/ I hate the design (it's ancient basic vbulletin) of this forum, but just look at how much more content fits in! http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1140514
