    Nice to see someone stepping up! He was all over the recievers today. Definately an improvement over O'Neal

    Wilhite's year is very similar to Hobbs rookie year. I think he has a good future ahead of him.

    And the person Wilhite replaced (O'Neal) has reminded me of the person Hobbs replaces (Starks). So everything is relative, I guess.

    Wilhite's the real deal for sure. He's smart too IIRC. He did an interview right before TC and he sounded like a BB type player. It's good he's getting some experience too. He's a Keeper.

    Lewis Sanders looked very good at safety as well. It's possible that the defensive backfield may not be as bad as thought.

    Then again, it is only the Raiders...

    Thumbs up on Willhite. Wish I could say the same for Hobbs. He is now consistently worse than mediocre. And Merriweather has some physical tools but takes some poor angles in run support. Lewis Sanders looked very good at safety. For 09: Willhite and Wheatley at CB, Merriweather and Sanders ? at S. OKay, but not a great picture, and still need a Rodney replacement.

    Rodney replacement = Cassell to Baltimore since he's better then flacco for Ed Reed.

    I think (not positive) the announcers said this was Oakland's best air-game all year.

    That's bad news for next week.

    Hobbs still in 2009. Then he leaves for more money than the Patriots would pay him. W&W in 2010.

    Hobbs may be on the roster, but he will not be in the line-up if he plays like he has this year.

    If Wilhite is reminding you of Hobbs, how can he have a good future? Hobbs is terrible and to think he'll get better is ridiculous. He hasn't improved and I don't see why he would. He's just not a good cover corner. However, he is an outstanding kick returner.

    Well, James "Bad Angle" Sanders was not back there so yeah, there was a huge improvement. Lewis' athletic abilities back there was a refreshing site.

    I wholeheartedly agree on Wilhite's play today--and I think he may be good enough to be a starting CB. I didn't understand why people were saying he was suited for the slot CB role and why BB had Wheatley playing outside. I never trust the listed heights of these guys but Wilhite definitely looks a little bigger than Wheatley.

    Anyway, I think it might be Hobbs and Wilhite as the corners last year with Wheatley the nickle guy covering the slot.

    These guys are going to take their lumps this year, but more because they are inexperienced and they've never played together rather than a lack of ability. Once they get used to their roles and each other I think this might be a decent unit.

    I'm not sold! He's a terrible tackler, he whiffed big time on a screen pass this week and combined with last weeks let up, he doesn't thrill me. The int was a terrible throw by Russel. I hope I'm wrong.

    Let's call out the guy with 2? career starts and say I'm not sold. The reality is he played tighter than our stop-gap (O'Neal), made his first career INT and had a couple of nice pass defensed. ROOKIE mistakes are going to happen.

    How about rating Wilhite and for that fact Wheatley 3 years into their tenure, like most drafts should be properly evaluated.

    The stupidity levels on this board sometimes befuddle me.

    If you guys remember Wheatley's play against the Colts, it was impressive from what little time he had in. I remember 2 passes thrown his way and he broke up both. He injured his wrist on breaking up a deep ball one on one (amazing play for a noob:D)

    I tend to agree with that .. I thought Wheatley was starting to look solid given experience before his suspect arm went. If he can get fit then both he and Wilhite could be rotating with Hobbs in there next season

    Given we have 2 second rounders and maybe a 3rd if we can tag and trade Cassel then I think 2 of those have to be a saftey and an OLB and if there's value there then also a tall CB and a TE

    True, but with her drug background, I believe that was just too risky of a move. :)

    your opinions of hobbs are pretty extreme.

    i think he's a pretty decent corner and a Good Kick Returner.

    i don't think he's terrible or outstanding at anything.
