Justin Ellis Jersey

For a team whose name derives imagery of pirates taking what they want Justin Ellis Jersey , the Raiders have been the one’s getting plundered in 2018. That trend continued on Monday when Jon Gruden traded Amari Cooper to the Cowboys for a first round pick. While Gruden received great value in the deal, his lack of communication with the team afterwards is at the very least odd and at most inexcusable.It should be no surprise that players in the Raiders locker room were upset Cooper was traded, calling the move a ‘knockout punch.’ Nobody was thrilled to see Cooper leave. But Gruden’s handling of the trade, pulling the wide receiver out of practice, and then declining to tell the team until Wednesday morning was an even bigger slap in the face according to The Athletic’s Vic Tafur. When players returned to the locker room after practice and Cooper was nowhere to be found, they scrambled to their phones to see the news. “I came in the locker room, just grabbed my phone,” Derek Carr replied when asked how he found out about the trade. “It was more of a feeling of, ‘Where’s Coop?’ Then you kind of just assume after that.” “As soon as I got off the field I wanted to come grab him before he headed out, but he was already out and I got to my phone and he had already sent me this long text, just all the stuff that we would talk about,” Carr continued. “Honestly Cheap Leon Hall Jersey , just as a friend, just being in this business it was hard when I read it because not only is he a good player and all of those things, but you just want to spend more time with him.”Gruden didn’t mention the trade during practice or in his address afterward, and wasn’t expected to do so until Wednesday morning at the next team meeting.Running back Jalen Richard told reporters that the team didn’t find out from their head coach, but rather from ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Instead of addressing the team, Gruden talked to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and expressed his excitement of having five first-round picks the next two years. After facing backlash, Gruden defended his decision by arguing that he wasn’t sure the trade was official. “Well nothing’s official,” Gruden told reporters on Wednesday. “I thought maybe I should find out for sure what was going on. I don’t even know if the trade is official yet, honestly. Look, there’s people working in the building when we’re out here on the practice field. We just don’t turn the lights off. I’m not going to get into anymore. It was an uncomfortable thing. It’s not the first time I’ve seen it. It’s not the last time I’ve seen it. And it’s not the first time it’s happened in the league and it’s not the last time. It is the trade deadline looming and sometimes trades happen that are unexpected and untimely.”As Gruden was busy speculating whether or not the trade was official, Cooper was already in Dallas and had finished his first practice with the Cowboys. It’s laughable excuses such as this that have led to players reportedly questioning Gruden’s accountability.Jon Gruden: Marshawn Lynch was ‘heart and soul’ of Seahawks Super Bowl teams, is same for Raiders now In case his stats this season weren’t enough of an indicator Cheap Authentic Jared Cook Jersey Super Bowl LI 51 Nike NFL Oakland Raiders Limited Game Shop , Marshawn Lynch is a major part of the 2018 Raiders. He currently leads the team in several areas including rushing yards (331), yards per carry (4.3), yards from scrimmage (401), and touchdowns (3). In fact, he’s the only Raiders player with a rushing touchdown this season.It’s been a resurgent season for Marshawn in which he continued his momentum from the latter half of last season in which he averaged 4.6 yards per carry over the final 8 games and 4.3 yards per carry on the season.His current numbers put him on pace for 1059 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. The last time he had those kinds of numbers, he was the lead back for the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Sunday he will face his former team for the first time in a regular season game. The Raiders are hoping the contributions he gave the Seahawks in those five Pro Bowl years and two Super Bowl years (one win) will be what the Raiders need to beat them Sunday. “We’ve got a few ex-Seahawks on our team – Bruce Irvin, Clinton McDonald, and certainly Marshawn Lynch, the most well known ex-Seahawk on our football team,” said Gruden. “He had a lot to do, I think, with the Super Bowl ring that the Seahawks wear. He was the heart and soul of that team. In a lot of ways he’s the heart and soul of the Raiders right now. He’s still running with that incredible physicality Gabe Jackson Jersey , he’s been durable, he’s practiced every day, behind the scenes he’s one of our leaders. He’s a little bit misunderstood by a lot of people, but believe me if you were coaching a football team, he’d be one of the first guys you’d want on your team.”Marshawn was 28-years-old then. In his prime. But even now, at 32, he looks every bit as Beastmode as he always did during his heyday in Seattle.“I think he’s done a remarkable job of maintaining his fitness,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said this week.“I think he looks really, very much the same. I really like the way he is playing. I mean last year and this year. He looks in the same style, in the same mode, aggressive and explosive. He’s averaging over four yards a carry. I think he’s doing pretty good.”It can be easy to forget that in 2013 the Seahawks won the Super Bowl with the help of Marshawn, mainly because the lasting memory was of them losing to the Patriots the following year because instead of handing it to Marshawn at the goal line Cheap Derek Carr Jersey , the Seahawks chose to put the ball in the air and it was intercepted.If that sounds familiar, it’s because Derek Carr just did the same thing last week against the Chargers. In first and goal at the one, the ball didn’t go to Marshawn and instead Carr threw an interception in the end zone. A touchdown would have kept the game within reach. The interception sealed their fates.Prior to last week when Marshawn only saw nine carries for 31 yards, he was a top five back in terms of rushing yards. He’s still top ten, and it’s clear that where he sits in the rankings is not up to him so much as the team. If they fall behind, they put the ball in the air. That also means the Raiders defense will play a part in how much he sees the ball. A defense that is currently among the worst in the league. Solution? Hand it to Marshawn early, and hope to keep to keep up, so you can keep feeding the beast and he can have the kind of performance he deserves to have against the team.Follow @LeviDamien
