Found August 29, 2013 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Because the leap over the car by cornerback Taiwan Jones was successful, it prevents this stunt from ranking high on most Raiders things ever, but it’s nice that he’s trying, though. The jump was recorded by Tyvon Branch, the person who bet Jones to try the jump. I could see the Jets doing the same thing, only the car is on fire and Mark Sanchez is locked in the front seat.[via]

Raiders CB jumps over car for $200

Some of the Raiders went out to celebrate Darren McFadden’s 26th birthday Tuesday night. (It looked like a swell night, BTW.) At some point of the evening cornerback Taiwan Jones was dared to jump over a car. Jones is the freak of an athlete who wasn’t even playing on defense last year and who, more notably, jumped out of a swimming pool backward once upon a time. If he completed...

Oakland Raiders CB Taiwan Jones jumps over car to win $200 bet

Oakland Raiders cornerback Taiwan Jones was out for runningback Darren McFadden’s birthday when he was bet $200 he couldn’t jump over a BMW.  Raiders safety Tyvon Branch recorded the jump and posted it to his Instagram page and as you can see, Jones was successful.  Good thing for Jones that the car wasn’t moving and that he was able to do it without getting injured.  I’m...

The TP2 Factor: The Oakland Raiders Are Relevant Again

The other day I was watching SportsCenter and to my surprise they actually had a segment on the Oakland Raiders. I am usually skeptical of anything ESPN does on the Raiders because anytime they mention the Raiders or their fans it is in a condescending tone. However, they spent the segment interviewing quarterback Terrelle Pryor and showing some of his highlights from the preseason...

Rashad Jennings Must Step Up For Oakland Raiders

Coming into every season the last five years, Oakland Raiders’ fans could expect two things; getting plenty of penalty flags thrown against them and Darren McFadden going down to injury. For the first few seasons of McFadden’s career he was backed up by Michael Bush who could easily replace McFadden’s production whenever he went down to injury. Last season Mike Goodson was...

Did Terrelle Pryor Blow His Opportunity To Become Raiders Starting QB?

Terrelle Pryor had it, right there in his grasp. After showing flashes of being able to lead the Raiders during the regular season, Pryor bombed last night during the Raiders final preseason game against the Seahawks. That sound you just heard was Pryor’s opportunity to start for the Raiders crashing down in flames.  Pryor went 3-8 for 31 yards, and an  interception, and seemed...

Terrelle Pryor: Still Learning in Seattle

Strapped with a play calling wristband and the determination to improve every day, Terrelle Pryor started tonight for the Oakland Raiders in their final preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. It has been a tumultuous preseason for the Raiders whose first team performances in the two previous games against the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears was nothing short of calamitous...

Pryor makes case to become Raiders starting QB

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor is assured a roster spot going into the last preseason game of the year. A roster spot is exactly what several players around the league are playing for, however for Pryor that is not enough. He is working to start. “Every day, I’m trying to get one percent better, and I won’t stop until I get to my goal,” Pryor said. “My goal is to be a starting...

Players View and our friends at Ranker are spending 16 days asking our readers to rank the greatest players in the history of each NFL franchise. Each day will feature one AFC team and one NFC team. Do you know who the greatest Oakland Raiders are? Please...

Raiders not ready to crown winner of quarterback competition

After last night’s poor performance by quarterback Terrelle Pryor,  Raiders head coach Dennis Allen isn’t ready to name a starter yet. Allen said he’ll withhold an announcement of the starting quarterback “until the appropriate time,” and when asked if he might wait until the season opener, said, “We’ll see.” Flynn, Allen said, is expected to be back at practice...

Sio Moore Could Become Face of the Oakland Raiders

Third round pick Sio Moore has the makings of the next great Oakland Raiders linebacker. I’m not even talking about potential greatness that we will see in a few years, I believe Sio Moore will become one of the Raiders best defenders  from the very first snap against the Indianapolis Colts (If his toe injury keeps him out week one, it will be against the Jaguars). Even when it...

What to Watch: Preseason Week 4, Raiders vs Seahawks

Tonight is the Raiders' final preseason game.  While usually the fourth preseason game holds very little importance, that isn't the case for this young and unproven Raiders team.  This game is very important for several players, and I'm going to look at a few of them here. Terrelle Pryor This one is a no-brainer.  Due to Flynn's poor performance this preseason...
