Default Oakland pursuing McCown?

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors

The Oakland Raiders have zeroed in on a veteran quarterback they would like to acquire while they ponder the possibility of drafting LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell.

Oakland has entered into trade negotiations with Detroit Lions backup quarterback Josh McCown, who signed last season with the idea of being a starter, but lost the job early to Jon Kitna.

I love this post! Its BRILLIANT without being pretentious... :D !



I like the thought of trading for McNown, the Raiders have so many problems on the offensive side I don't really see Russell as the missing link as it were. Best case for the Raiders is trading out and acquiring more picks or getting Calvin Johnson. Moss, Porter and Johnson could be outstanding as long as they get the offensive line to pass block and maybe get a running game going. Besides they could bring in Walters to QB and Josh could be the 4th wideout, ahh the trickery that could ensue.

It'll be interesting to see how it plays out, as it could give us a stronger indication as to what the Raiders and Lions may pursue in the draft. McCown's a decent talent, but he certainly does not the franchise QB that they need.

No one knows how good he will be if given a full season though and i expect the raiders O-line to be much improved

I think this also opens a good possibility of Detroit then taking JaMarcus Russell after Oakland selects CJ, clearly not needing a 1st round QB with McCown's acquisition.

I really don't think this changes a whole lot, McCown is not a longterm answer for either team.

I know, but it just adds to the idea that their interest is in CJ. And with Detroit only having Kitna, Russell would make a whole lot of sense all of the sudden.

Detroit will need a young QB regardless, I don't think moving McCown changes anything.

As for Oakland, I suppose that McCown could be a sign against Russell, but I'm not sure anyone really buys McCown as a guy that can be a longterm answer.

Oh no way, they will likely use a first-day pick on a quarterback. Trent Edwards is nice local kid, he'd be a good pick in the 3rd round.

I disagree you would be amazed when some QBs get to start a season what they can do.

Is McCown the ex-Cardinals QB who a couple years ago threw that miracle touchdown pass on the last play to beat the Vikings and end their playoff hopes?

Well, I guess this means no Calvin Johnson to Oakland...

...wait, is he gonna be a WR or QB?

Oakland was going to add another quarterback regardless of whether they intend to draft Russell or CJ. I think that the fact that they tried to trade for Schaub is the most telling sign.

Maybe I'm the only one, but I think Tim Rattay would be the best stopgap type QB for the Raiders considering he has worked with Knapp for years before and knows the offense like the back of his hand, having played in it virtually his whole career.

I hate how people view Eli Manning as a long term answer, but someone with an equal skill set, McCown, as a spot starter.
