So, the Washington Redskins traveled to the West Coast last weekend for a tilt against the Oakland Raiders. Not only did the team come back with its first win of the season, one member of the team’s brain trust may have come back with a hilarious humdinger of an idea on how to improve FedEx […]The post Inspired by Raiders’ ‘Black Hole’, Redskins GM wants ‘Burgandy Hole’ at FedEx Field appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Week 4 of the NFL season has come to a conclusion and Washington Redskins have firmly established themselves as one the NFL’s cellar dwellers. This past week they faced the winless Oakland Raiders on the road. Fortunately for fans, the Redskins they were able to eke out a win against Matt Flynn and company. After this win the question looms: Does the Redskin’s victory over...
It’s hard to fathom that Terrelle Pryor has become the heart and soul of the Oakland Raiders after just three starts this season. While Pryor’s detractors have continued to say that Pryor does not have an NFL caliber arm or pocket poise, Pryor has shown that he is capable of being a solid quarterback in this league. What makes Pryor’s performance this year so remarkable...
The Washington Redskins worked out free agent wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and 17 other players.
Also attending the workout were defensive backs Al Afalava (Oregon State), Jalil Brown (Colorado), Mario Butler (Georgia Tech) and Ross Ventrone (Villanova), center Kevin Kowalski (Toledo), tackle Jason Smith (Baylor), linebackers Justin Cole (San Jose State), Josh Hull (Penn State...
How did Matt Flynn get a $20 million contract? Flynn has no pocket awareness and reads a defense as if they were playing with braille. QB Terrelle Pryor's job security skyrocketed in the wake of Flynn's performance.
Raiders running back Darren McFadden hamstring was held out of practice for a second straight day, while fullback Marcel Reece (knee) was on the field practicing with his teammates.
McFadden still out, now where to be seen (bad sign). Wisniewski out, but watching practice. #raiders

Seems like Dennis Allen really wasn’t happy with the way Flynn played last week for him to lose his back up job after one game as the starter in place of Terrelle...
In the beginning of the game against the Washington Redskins, Oakland had the lead until the third quarter due to the Redskins’ disastrous offensive performance. What was the turning point in the game that caused the Redskins to overturn the Raiders? Washington’s defense picked up the slack of their offense, resulting in an ending score of Washington 24, Oakland 14.
How did quarterback...
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor will start this week after missing last week’s game with a concussion.
Pryor is symptom free, will start for Raiders vs. Chargers. Matt McGloin is backup. Flynn dropped to No. 3 QB

This is certainly great news after last week’s loss to the Redskins. You would have to imagine that if Pryor played, the...
Terrelle Pryor is symptom-free and will start Sunday night’s Week 5 game against the Chargers. I am exited for Pryor, because he has been pretty surprising this year. Pryor will lead the Raiders into their 11:35 game against the Chargers which will be aired on the NFL Network. Pryor has been putting up at least 18 […]
The fashion police quite literally came after Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Sunday.
While speaking with reporters after the Redskins’ 24-14 win in Oakland, Hall was accosted by an NFL uniform inspector and told that he would be fined if he did not end the interview immediately.
The corner’s crime, according to multiple reports compiled by The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg...
Raiders HC Dennis Allen announced on Wednesday that undrafted rookie free agent Matt McGloin will take over as the team’s backup quarterback behind Terrelle Pryor.
“It is what it is. It didn’t work out,” Allen said, via Vic Tafur.
As if things couldn’t possibly get worse for Matt Flynn, he’s now lost a job for the third time in less than two years.
Allen basically threw...
The Chicago Bears (3-1) are looking to improve their situation at the punter position following a rough performance by Adam Podlesh in the team’s 40-32 loss to the Detroit Lions (3-1). Podlesh, 30, averaged 28.8 yards on his five punts on Sunday and helped gift Detroit with great field position when he hit a line drive right to Lions returner Michael Spurlock, who took off for...
The Oakland Raideres will have Terrelle Pryor under center for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
“He is symptom-free, so he’s clear,” head coach Dennis Allen said on Wednesday.
The Raiders have also moved Matt Flynn, who started last week, to third string promoting undrafted rookie Matt McGloin to the backup role.
TIME CHANGE: Raiders and Chargers...
Richard Seymour had football on his mind during the weekend but it wasn’t focused on the Patriots against the Falcons. It was focused on Georgia-LSU.
While the team he helped win three Super Bowls was in town to face the Falcons on Sunday night only a few miles from his home Seymour was in Athens hollering for his ninth-ranked alma mater which beat sixth-ranked LSU 44-41 in a...
The Oakland Raiders worked out wide receiver Joe Adams today according to a league source.
Adams is a speedy former Carolina Panthers fourth-round draft pick.
Per a source Adams is now 100 percent healthy.
The former Arkansas consensus All-American was a first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection.
Last season he caught one pass for seven yards with 335 total return yards
