Schefter You Diabolical...

Al Davis's old buddy Adam Schefter is at it again. Now he blogs that DeAngelo Hall's release from the Raiders is imminent.

Eight games, $8 million, a second rounder, and countless (well, maybe someone counted but I did not) times torched by a range of NFL wide receiver skill levels. If this goes through, it would have to surpass Javon Walker as the worst signing of all time.

Three good ways of interpreting this, courtesy of Mr. Optimism:

  1. Nnamdi Asomugha becomes an absolute MUST SIGN, without any thought of, "Well, we are spending a lot on CB already..."

  2. By avoiding throwing good money after bad, The Raiders might actually reallocate that money towards someone who can play

  3. Perhaps Hall's comments in the AJC the other day that he's going to go out and be himself and get a few penalties is in direct contrast with Al's sudden realization that what the Raiders need most of all is discipline

Yeah, I couldn't get through that third point without laughing, either.

What the Fuck? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Unless Al re-hired Lombardi? I mean, Wow.
