    I wonder if Al Davis hired Shell on purpose for 1 year in order to get a great draft position again (like what ML Carr did).

    Maybe, but I don't think Tim Duncan has declared yet... :D

    Of course he didn't. Then again, that doesn't mean Shell can't play it off like that.

    ML Carr was trying very hard to build a winning team (he signed Dominique Wilkins to a huge deal), he was just terrible at it, and after being quiet for a couple years while people forgot what really happenned he has spent the rest of his life saying he intentioanlly tanked games as part of a plan.

    I think Al Davis will trade up for that QB from LSU. Apparently he is projected by some to be better than Brady Quinn or Troy Smith.

    Or he could just pick him as the Raiders pick #1 - in Al's state of mind, though, he may try to swing a deal with himself :)

    Woops, you're right!

    It looks like Al Davis' plan worked to perfection.

    And I will look forward to Adam Shefter's smug look when they talk about if on NFLN. Shefter and Mike Mayock, their draft guy, are the two guys I love on the NFLN.

    Base on recent history, it's not worth much (though it wouldn't surprise anyone if he were canned).

    It was a "mercy firing".
    How could SHELL sit though another year of that teams play?

    I predict it now raiders vs lions for the first pick in the 2008 draft too:D
