    We better resign Pat Sims, but the way things have unfolded this offseason, I’m already waiting for the article saying he signs else where. We have lost more talent then we have brought in, but there are still some decent signings out there. We just need to get them done! Resign Pat Sims oakland!! Raider nation!

    How the Hell we let Pat Sims go anywhere? He was our best run stopper last year. See this is the stupid moves we do. We have no room to let someone believe they will be in the playoffs this year.
