AL DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Oakland Raiders: The 5 Greatest Players of All Time

Though the Oakland Raiders’ recent history is the essence of putridity, they have a long and storied history of success mainly with outcasts and madmen.  As their eccentric and posthumous Managing General Partner (even if you’re a Raider-hater, you gotta love that title) Al Davis would often boast, the Raiders had the highest winning percentage of any professional sports franchise...

Oakland Raiders: Why I don’t take the San Antonio reports seriously.

There have been reports today that the Oakland Raiders are considering a move to San Antonio. Per the reports, Raiders owner Al Davis met with city officials to discuss the potential move. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know that I am not taking these reports very seriously. For those who don’t follow me, here was how I ever so maturely addressed the situation:...

Seattle Seahawks have Al Davis’ dream defense

I’m speechless in despair. This can’t be happening. It’s early in the 2007 season, and the Oakland Raiders are winless. The Cleveland Browns are mercilessly marching up the Coliseum field, on the final drive of the fourth quarter. With Pro Bowler Derrick Burgess injured, the Raiders front four are feeble. Time is running out for Cleveland, but they need just one more completion...

Reggie McKenzie Rebuilds Oakland Raiders and Brand

For decades, Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis won a lot of football games with a certain brand of football. With that brand of football, his Raiders were at one time the winningest organization in professional sports.  He once told NFL Films, "The greatness of the Raiders is in it's future because whoever's around can look back at our great past to build off of."...

Al Davis Mock Draft - Oakland Raiders

One of the greatest football minds, the NFL, will ever see Al Davis was a pioneer of a brand and style of play that brings distinction and separation to the Oakland Raiders. Davis died at aged 82, at his home in Oakland on October 8, 2011.

Al Davis and the Raider way lives on in Mark Davis

The Oakland Raiders and Al Davis were synonymous for many years. The owner and former coach ran almost every aspect of the football operations and was the face of the franchise like no other owner ever has been or ever will be. Even Jerry Jones is not the same type of figurehead as Davis was. So when he passed away, many began preparing themselves for what were expected to be some...

Raiders In No Rush For Some Pass Rush

“Within the first five minutes of the game, the other team’s quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard”. This quote belongs to the late, great Al Davis, in a testament of the importancy of having a stout pass-rush to the success of a defense.

Oakland Raiders did not have a full-time groundskeeper under Al Davis

The stories of how far behind the times the Oakland Raiders were in Al Davis’ later years are infamous. Last year, we passed along a story saying that new GM Reggie McKenzie asked the team to construct a modern-day “war room” for the NFL Draft because no such room existed at the team’s facilities. Now we’re learning that the team did not even have a full-time groundskeeper...
