I know Raiders fans fire first, ask questions later.
But I can't help but wonder if there is information we are not privy to that we have not considered. Like at the "End of Season Evaluations" provided by the coaches to the Raiders' Player Development team. The ones where they evaluate every player.

I first want to say, this is not a complaint. Instead it is a questioning of Dennis Allen's policy regarding injuriy reporting.

Longtime Raider observer Ron Macom files the following observation:
By the time DHB was picked, the Raiders already pretty much knew what they had on their hands with JRuss. I'm sure they had gotten pretty tired of his attitude. I'm also sure they were looking at the distinct possibility/reality of his eventual release.
WR was a big need in the 2009 draft. The guy most of us thought the Raiders should have drafted was Michael Crabtree. When we
