Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-1/218 Birthdate: 8/27/1987 School: Arkansas FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS Oh Darren McFadden. Oh DMC. Will you ever put it all together? That is the question every fantasy owner asks himself before hitting enter to draft McFadden. And most often it comes down to promise and this kid has it spewing from both ears. But my friends, like rookies, promise does little to win championships. Unless you can take a chance on DMC in a later round, go safer. Because by now, we all know that it’s not a question of if, it’s when. Another knock on McFadden was his ability to run the new zone scheme blocking that the Raiders employed in 2012. And since we know that football superstar Marcel Reese saw some success running it, why weren’t McFadden’s numbers better while he was playing? The guy was struggling to break a hundred yards in Kansas City. Kansas City! (Updated 2/27/13) UPDATES None. The post Fantasy Football Player Profi...

Raiders shouldn’t give up on Carson Palmer

Let’s get something straight Raider Nation. The Oakland Raiders need Carson Palmer to remain on the team if this team has any chance of recovering in the next couple of seasons, because the, “Let’s throw Palmer under the bus.” rhetoric is getting a little tired at this point. The 2012, 4-12 season wasn’t Palmer’s fault and any person who tries to argue otherwise is not...

Expect a lot of action from the Raiders this week

I’ve consistently heard questions since the end of the NFL’s season – “when will the Raiders going to start resigning their players?”  “Why haven’t the Raiders cut anyone yet?”  Why isn’t Reggie McKenzie doing anything to restructure some guys?” The answer I’ve offered each time was patience – McKenzie didn’t need to do anything yet because there wasn’t...

Oakland Raiders: 5 Biggest Questions Heading Into 2013 Offseason

The most pressing question involving the Oakland Raiders this offseason is how head coach Dennis Allen will respond to a dismal first year at the helm.Although all of the blame does not lie with Allen, he certainly isn't exempt from any flack. The hiring of already-failed Greg Knapp as his offensive coordinator was eyebrow-raising to everybody but Oakland's front office...

The struggles of the Oakland Raiders since their 2002 Super Bowl Appearance have been well recognized by the rest of the NFL and fans everywhere.

The worst of which include drafting JaMarcus...

2013 Oakland Raiders

1.)   Who knows what the Raiders plan to do with Terrelle Pryor at this point. They chose not to play him until the last game. I thought he looked good in that start, despite getting no help from his receivers. He had the offense moving as well as it did all year. 2.)   Did the … Continue reading »

Raiders’ Terrelle Pryor, Darrius Heyward-Bey & others have a “Harlem Shake” video too

I guess it’s the NFL’s turn to get in on the “Harlem Shake” phenomenon. The Raiders’ Terrelle Pryor, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Jacoby Jones and a few others decided they wanted in and shot their own. Yeah, I’m not a fan. See the problem is that the Miami Heat set the bar ridiculously high with theirs. First off, there’s costuming, they start the video in their warm ups...
