This time last year, I had declared the Cincinnati Bengals a complete dumpster fire. Their only proven QB was Carson Palmer who fit both despicable categories slumping performer and disgruntled trade-demander. This forced the hand of new Offensive Coordinator Jay Gruden to rely on a rookie, QB Andy Dalton, as a starter. With the departure of 2010’s top WRs Chad Ocho Cinco and Terrell Owens, this left Dalton’s top targeting option as another rookie, WR AJ Green. And with that set up we “knew” this doomed offense and their mediocre defense wouldn’t stand a chance. Few things make you rethink gloomy evaluation for an NFL team then when they are one of 3 2011 playoff teams in the AFC North.
Despite Cincy doing a 180 last year, there are still questions for that offense. In addition to the stats and lore behind the theory of “sophomore slumps” affecting the Red Rifle and AJ Green, another concern has surfaced. The Bengals 7 losses came against teams with winning records except for...

Anyone who followed me during the offseason knows I picked 5 underrated and overrated teams with the intention of trying to get ahead of the odds makers. I will and have been basically just been betting on the underrated teams and against the overrated teams blindly until I’m proven wrong or the odds makers...

The 2012 pre-season is now history and it’s time to take a closer look at how the Oakland Raiders’ offense performed as a whole during this period. Quarterbacks: Carson Palmer had a disappointing pre-season. We all know how productive he can be in the NFL and also remember the impressive moments he had last season [...]
When it comes to football, Monday isn’t just another day. Monday Night Football is more like a phenomenon than another TV event. It’s something that not only makes Mondays much less mundane for the sports fan, but also allows for big advertising opportunities for businesses on these evenings of extremely high viewership. Monday Night Football … it’s tradition.
As Monday night approaches we know that Raiders QB Carson Palmer will drop back to pass a number of times. What is less clear is who will be available to be the targets of those passes and how well they'll do.The team came into training camp with receiver an overstocked position, but with questions as to the quality of the receiving corps. The corps responded with some great...

On November 27, 1960, the Oakland Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers played their first game in what would become one of the most heated football rivalries in NFL history. Since then the Raiders have moved twice and the Chargers moved to San Diego, but the hatred has always been there. These are the top Raiders/Chargers matchups that have the most significance in Raiders History.
The final game of the season opening weekend of the NFL will not be watched by a ton of people outside the west coast, unless of course you are addicted to watching every game possible.
Many questions both of these quarterbacks in this ball game since one was a former star (Palmer) and many are questioning if the other ever come close to be the same gun-slinger he once was (Rivers...
