Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is having another injury filled season and every analyst is starting to bring out the bust label again. It started over the 2010 offseason when McFadden had two lackluster seasons in Oakland and McFadden showed them in 2010 he deserves the title of featured back. Then 2011 came in to smack him down again and 2012 has the bust haters coming back in for a meal. However it is too soon to label McFadden a bust and the proof is in his age. McFadden is only 25 years old at this point in his career. 25 in running back years is when most running backs begin to reach the halfway point in their careers and McFadden may be able shake off his injury issues in upcoming seasons.… Read more

  • he is very injury prone @ the hardest hit position in the NFL. This mook is a bust don't understand how you could argue any other way.
  • Dmac is the Bomb......The OFFENSIVE LINE for
    Oakland is a Joke.....Put Dmac behind any great
    line and he will get you 2,000 yards.....

    If the Raiders draft a Offensive Tackle with their first round Pick and trade for a Left Guard to replace Cooper who should of been replaced with the rookie from Utah......

    Oakland is building a Offensive Line for the Future.
    The have a great young Left Tackle, right guard through trade with Miami, and a possible future all
    Pro Center with the kid from Penn State.

    Oakland can't Throw the Ball. They can't run the Ball. Shocker they can't score with the Football.
    They played the worst team in Football in Kansas city.
    That means KC SUCKS...Well, OAKLAND Put up 15 points.
    5 Field Goals....Hey, DMAC can't block and run at the
    same time.......Do the Math.

    Oakland needs a Offensive Tackle and everything changes for the Raiders....The Building Blocks are
    there but Remember Rome wasn't built in a day.
    Patience......Dmac's problem is he goes 100 percent
    every play.....When you line can't block in the NFL
    you usually can't run, pass, block, throw touchdowns,
    and most important = Score Touchdowns..

    Dmac isn't going anywhere because the OAKLAND RAIDERS
    trade Dmac.......They will never be forgiven..

    Peace out!

The Raiders need to a new approach to running their franchise. A look at Head Coaches in trouble this offseason.

The Raiders franchise has been a mess for over a decade.  They need to take a hard look at how things are being run. As we get closer to the end of the season it's time to start looking ahead to the coaching changes for next year. Here's a quick look at the teams I think will, or should, be looking for a coaching change when the season ends. Buffalo Bills...

Raiders coaching staff leaning toward playing Terrelle Pryor

It sounds like the Oakland Raiders will finally give Terrelle Pryor a shot to play. Raiders coach Dennis Allen expects QB Terrelle Pryor to get playing time against the Chiefs. It’s the third straight week the Raiders have claimed they’re going to take a look at their No. 3 quarterback, but he’s yet to play a snap. Now entering a game where they may conceivably compete, Pryor...

Rolando McClain back with the Raiders… as a backup

Two weeks ago, it looked like Rolando McClain’s days as a member of the Oakland Raiders were over. After being held out of two straight practices, many believed that the former 8th overall pick in the 2010 Draft was about to be released. The Silver & Black instead decided to suspend the linebacker due to “conduct detrimental to the team”. [...]

Raiders Expect To Give Terrelle Pryor Some Playing Time Against KC

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen mentioned that he expects QB Terrelle Pryor to see some playing time against the Chiefs this weekend, via the Contra Costa Times. Pryor reportedly has a “set of plays to run” in both of the team’s last two games, but he was never brought into the game. At this point in the season, the Raiders may as well see what the kid can do, given...

Raiders Willing To Trade WR’s For Draft Picks?

Jerry McDonald of the Contra Costa Times writes that the Raiders could look to shop players Darrius Heyward-Bey, Denarius Moore, and Jacoby Ford for additional draft picks. Undrafted rookie Rod Streater has afforded them the ability to trade of their receivers if it means that they would be able to fill other positions of need like cornerback. The rebuild in Oakland will likely...

Rod Streater is a bright spot in dark season for the Raiders

Rod Streater signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent immediately following the conclusion of the draft. A product of Temple University, Streater’s odds were long to make the Raiders 53 man roster. However, after a strong preseason, Streater left an impression that earned him a roster spot. Streater is 6th among NFL rookie wide receivers with 28 receptions and is...

Branch returns to practice for Raiders

Oakland Raiders safety Tyvon Branch practiced for the first time this week, an encouraging turn for a struggling secondary sorely lacking depth. The news wasn't as promising for Richard Seymour. The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle has not played since injuring his hamstring on Nov. 4 and did not practice Friday after aggravating the same injury a day earlier. The Raiders...

Lechler, Seymour might not return to Oakland

Auditions for the 2013 Raiders are underway. Coach Dennis Allen has made it clear that while every effort will be made to win the last three games of the season, there will also be a heavy emphasis in seeing some of the younger players to see how they fit into the club's future. For that matter, the veterans will be watched closely as well. The two most notable veterans...

State of the AFC West: Week 15 Edition

Well Raider Nation, in terms of what’s going on in the AFC West, last week just provided more of the same with one surprise. San Diego somehow managed to beat the Steelers, which should have shocked many. Outside of that, Oakland kept it closer than I thought they would against Denver and the Kansas City Chiefs kept themselves in the [...]

Oakland Raiders: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 32 (+1) Record: 3-10 Net points per drive: -0.91 (31st) DVOA: -31.9% (30th) Weighted DVOA: -31.7% (30th) The Raiders’ only remaining home game right now is against the Chiefs and their last chance for a win, as they have to go to Carolina and San Diego and I can’t see them winning either of those games. I have them in the 31st spot because I think they lose to the...

Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders: Week 15 NFL Pick

Kansas City Chiefs (2-11) at Oakland Raiders (3-10) I picked the Chiefs as 6.5 point dogs last week in Cleveland because they were in such a good spot, but I made sure not to make it a huge play because I wasn’t sure how they’d respond once they had a week for the Jovan Belcher situation to settle in. In hindsight, I probably should have avoided the game entirely like I did the...
