Kissing Suzy Kolber:
You know how the NFL always has that doubleheader the first Monday of each season and the latter game is always a depressing contest that involves the Raiders? Well, this is just like that, only it’s starting even later. Yay, Monday Morning Insomniaball!But hey, Berman isn’t in the booth at least.Darren McFadden is inactive, meaning Terrelle Pryor will get slightly less help for his first start since suffering a concussion in the Monday night blowout against the Broncos two weeks ago. Last Sunday, it was Matt Flynn getting the start against the Redskins. In that game, Oakland jumped out to a 14-point lead then proceeded to allow 24 unanswered points the rest of the way.Meanwhile, there have been rumblings that Josh Freeman is going to sign with Oakland because their offensive coordinator worked with Freeman during his days in Tampa as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. Also, understandably Freeman wants a team that is willing to promise him a chance to start. And since ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Who to pick: Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn? That was the question on Oakland Raiders’ coach Dennis Allen’s mind in this year’s preseason. Pryor was considered second best to Flynn; however in just two short months, Terrelle Pryor has drastically improved the performance of the Oakland Raiders, making him the unquestionable candidate for the position.
After suffering from a concussion...
It’s truly remarkable how well Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is doing throwing the ball this season.

Raiders running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday night’s game against the Chargers. Paul Guiterrez of ESPN.com doesn’t believe McFadden will be back until after week 7. Realistically, McFadden likely will not play again until Oct. 27, at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That would give McFadden two-plus games and a bye week to heal after he pulled...

Raiders running back Darren McFadden is officially listed as doubtful on the team’s injury report. That might be a shade optimistic.
While he missed a week’s practice with a hamstring injury suffered in the Washington loss that’s not what shrouds his playing status for Sunday against San Diego in pessimism. It’s what he said in his only interview of the week.
Terrelle Pryor had his first National Football League start against the San Diego Chargers on December 30th of last year. He went 13 for 28 with 150 yards two touchdowns and an interception through the air and rushed 9 times for 49 yards and another score in a close 24-21 loss.

During today’s NFL Insiders show on ESPN, former NFL general manager Bill Polian said that Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is the most improved he’s seen lately.
“He’s improved more than any player I’ve seen,” said Polian, per Adam Schefter.
I never thought Pryor would be ready to be a starter in the NFL this season, but I was wrong. He’s done a great job of...

Raiders running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) is officially listed as inactive for Week 5 against San Diego.Fantasy Spin:No surprise for the ultra-fragile McFadden. Rashad Jennings will be the feature back in Week 5, but Marcel Reece will be active and could be the third-down receiving option.
Terrelle Pryor and Charles Woodson turned this rare late-night start into an Oakland Raiders celebration.
Pryor threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and Woodson tied an NFL record with his 13th defensive touchdown as the Raiders beat the San Diego Chargers 27-17 on Sunday night.
Pryor got the Raiders (2-3) off to a fast start in the latest West Coast game in NFL history...
According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Times, the Oakland Raiders are definitely interested in free agent quarterback Josh Freeman, but are taking their time.
