You Know You Are Worried About It: Mack 


No real impact so far shown from the top pick....

...yeah yeah it's pre season....but all the excitement about this pick I expected more then a sack in the third qtr against a scrub OL.

I'm not worried about Mack. I'm worried about the jinx factor. The jinx factor is not really a curse, more because the Raiders don't know how to use their personnel correctly.

Jinx, curse, what ever if this kid busts then it's time to just fire everyone in scouting, trade the first two picks each year for proven players and move on.

What other players would you have drafted at that position other than Mack? The only 2 I can think of are Anthony Barr and Aaron Donald. That's what sucks about jinxes and curses. You always think you know the reason and can fix it, but it's existence is not based in reality. Rumor has it that Al Davis sold his soul to the devil in 1983. This is supposedly the pay back noidea

only a few pr season games I'm not worried. Talk to me mid season and if he hasn't done shyt I will be worried. He's still a rookie no matter where we took him in the 1st round. I know we'd all like to see an immediate impact player though at that spot for sure.

Preseason is jut that he is learning he to early to worry about it has been double teamed which only frees up one of the other defenders the sacks will come in time.

I just don't see comments like "it's preseason, they are just learning, etc" about the other top picks. Hell I hear them talking about Gabe Jackson as starter material while Mack is just plugged in as a day one guy. God I hope this kid isn't a bust.

Not worried about him. Coaches have put so much on him seeing how much he can handle right now. Will he play up or down? I don't think he is being handled the best. Do they want a rush LB, DE, WLB or what?

He is not playing the Nickel he had 16 snaps the first game and I think 24 the second game and has been double teamed more than once. JT is showing a very Vanilla defense right now with out all the blitz packages.Mack is playing well he is paying the edge and the TE, as any SAM LB. He is a rookie it is pre season you will see more from him as he gets more snaps.

Re: You Know You Are Worried About It: Mack 


To soon to panic but its concerning Mack doesn't make any plays till he lines up against 3rd stringers.Evey rook progresses at their own rate and a lot is being thrown at him but you get drafted at the top for being a difference maker and until he starts making plays and fighting off double teams he will be unfairly criticized. So far our starting d has made the opp starters look like hall of famers so in my opinion all the starters have looked like bust so far.I would like to see some 3 and outs with the first unit this 3rd pre game and Mack bringing the Mac sack attack.

knock on Mack, was against the run. it shows so far... the Minnesota game their backs got huge gains off the edge, just like Charles from queefs last year - 4-5 td's off tackle to the house . Mack wasn't here last year - gotta be coaching...soon preseason won't be an excuse to not perform
